Join In The Dance

*

Refrain
Join in the dance of the earth’s jubilation!
This is the feast of the love of God.
Shout from the heights to the ends of creation:
Jesus the Savior is risen from the grave!

1. Wake, O people; sleep no longer:
greet the breaking day!
Christ, Redeemer, Lamb and Lion,
turns the night away! (Refrain)

2. All creation, like a mother,
labors to give birth.
Soon the pain will be forgotten,
joy for all the earth! (Refrain)

3. Now our shame becomes our glory
on this holy tree.
Now the reign of death is ended;
now we are set free! (Refrain)

4. None on earth, no prince or power,
neither death nor life,
nothing now can ever part us
from the love of Christ! (Refrain)

5. Love’s triumphant day of vict’ry
heaven opens wide.
On the tree of hope and glory
death itself has died! (Refrain)

6. Christ forever, Lord of ages,
Love beyond our dreams:
Christ, our hope of heaven’s glory,
all that yet will be! (Refrain)

Draw Nigh to Thy Jerusalem, O Lord

*

1 Draw nigh to thy Jerusalem,
O Lord, thy faithful people cry with one accord:
ride on in triumph; Lord, behold,
we lay our passions, lusts, and proud wills in thy way.

2 Thy road is ready, and thy paths,
made straight, with longing expectations seem to wait
the consecration of thy beauteous feet,
and silently thy promised advent greet.

3 Hosanna! welcome to our hearts,
for here thou hast a temple too, as Zion dear;
yes, dear as Zion, and as full of sin;
how long shall theives and robbers dwell therein?

4 Enter and chase them forth,
and cleanse the floor; o’erthrow them all, that they
may nevermore profane with traffic vile that holy place
where thou hast chosen, Lord, to set thy face.

5 And then, if our stiff tongues shall faithlessly
be mute in praises of thy deity,
the very temple stones shall loud repeat
Hosanna! and thy glorious footsteps greet.

Somebody’s Knocking At Your Door

*

Somebody’s knocking at your door;
somebody’s knocking at your door;
O sinner, why don’t you answer?
Somebody’s knocking at your door.

Knocks like Jesus.
Somebody’s knocking at your door.
Knocks like Jesus.
Somebody’s knocking at your door.
O sinner, why don’t you answer?
Somebody’s knocking at your door.

Can’t you hear him?
Somebody’s knocking at your door.
Can’t you hear him?
Somebody’s knocking at your door.
O sinner, why don’t you answer?
Somebody’s knocking at your door.

Answer Jesus.
Somebody’s knocking at your door.
Answer Jesus.
Somebody’s knocking at your door.
O sinner, why don’t you answer?
Somebody’s knocking at your door.

Father I Have Sinned (The Prodigal Son)

*

Father I have sinned,
help me find my way.
Remember not my sins,
just let me hear you say:

I forgive you, I love you
You are mine, take my hand.
Go in peace, sin no more,
Beloved one.

Father I have turned,
my back and walked away
Depended on my strength
and lived life my own way

Father I have closed,
my heart to those in need.
Thought only of myself,
a victim of my greed.

Father I have loved,
if love’s the word to use.
I’ve played so many games,
they’ve left me so confused.

Father I’ve returned,
I’m home with you to stay.
Standing at your door,
knowing that you’ll say

Nothing but the Blood

*

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Oh! Precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Nothing can for sin atone,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

This is all my hope and peace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteousness,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Glory! Glory! This I sing—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
All my praise for this I bring—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Our God Reigns

*

Our God reigns!
Our God reigns!
Our God reigns!
Our God reigns!

1 How lovely on the mountains
Are the feet of him
Who brings good news, good news,
Announcing peace proclaiming
News of happiness.
Our God reigns our God reigns!

2 He had no stately form;
He had no majesty.
That we should be drawn to Him.
He was despised, and we took no account of Him,
Yet now He reigns
With the Most High. [Chorus]

3 Out of the tomb He came
With grace and majesty;
He is alive, He is alive.
God loves us so see here His hands,
His feet, His side.
Yes we know
He is alive. [Chorus]

Cross of Jesus, Cross of Sorrow

*

Cross of Jesus, cross of sorrow,
Where the blood of Christ was shed,
Perfect man on thee did suffer,
Perfect God on thee has bled!

Here the King of all the ages,
Throned in light ere worlds could be,
Robed in mortal flesh is dying,
Crucified by sin for me.

O mysterious condescending!
O abandonment sublime!
Very God Himself is bearing
All the sufferings of time!

Cross of Jesus, cross of sorrow,
Where the blood of Christ was shed,
Perfect man on thee did suffer,
Perfect God on thee has bled!
