Vespers Song Lyrics (in alphabetical order)

Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace! How sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me!

I once was lost, but now am found

Was blind, but now I see.


'Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear,

And Grace my fears relieved.

How precious did that Grace appear

The hour I first believed.


Through many dangers, toils, and snares

I have already come.

'Tis Grace hath brought me safe thus far

And Grace will lead me home.


The Lord has promised good to me.

His Word my hope secures.

He will my shield and portion be

As long as life endures.


When we've been there ten thousand years

Bright shining as the sun,

We've no less days to sing God's praise

Than when we'd first begun.


Awesome God

Our God is an awesome God

He reigns from heaven above

With wisdom, power, and love

Our God is an awesome God



Come, Now is the Time to Worship

Come, now is the time to worship

Come, now is the time to give your heart

Come, just as you are to worship

Come, just as you are before your God

Come


One day ev'ry tongue will confess You are God

One day ev'ry knee will bow

Still the greatest treasure remains for those

Who gladly choose you now


Father, I Adore You

Father, I adore You

Lay my life before You

How I love You.


Jesus, I adore You

Lay my life before You

How I love You


Spirit, I adore You

Lay my life before You

How I love You


Three in One I adore You

Lay my life before You

How I love You. 


Great is Thy Faithfulness

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;

There is no shadow of turning with Thee

Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;

As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.


[Chorus]

Great is Thy faithfulness!

Great is Thy faithfulness!

Morning by morning new mercies I see.

All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;

Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!


Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,

Sun, moon and stars in their courses above

Join with all nature in manifold witness

To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.


[Chorus]


Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth

Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;

Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,

Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!


[Chorus]



Here I Am to Worship

Light of the world

You stepped down into darkness

Opened my eyes, let me see

Beauty that made this heart adore You

Hope of a life spent with You

 

(chorus)

Here I am to worship

Here I am to bow down

Here I am to say that You're my God

You're altogether lovely

Altogether worthy

Altogether wonderful to me


King of all days

Oh so highly exalted

Glorious in heaven above

Humbly You came to the earth You created

All for love's sake became poor


(Chorus)

 

Well, I'll never know how much it cost

To see my sin upon that cross


(chorus)



How Great Thou Art

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder

Consider all The works Thy Hand hath made,

I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,

Thy pow'r throughout The universe displayed, 


(chorus)


Then sings my soul,

My Savior God, to Thee,

How great Thou art!

How great Thou art!

Then sings my soul,

My Savior God, to Thee,

How great Thou art!

How great Thou art! 


When through the woods and forest glades I wander

I hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,

When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur

And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze, 


(chorus) 


When Christ shall come, with shouts of acclamation,

And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!

Then I shall bow in humble adoration

And there proclaim, "My God, how great Thou art!" 


(Chorus) 


I Have Decided to Follow Jesus

I have decided to follow Jesus;

I have decided to follow Jesus;

I have decided to follow Jesus;

No turning back, no turning back.

 

Tho' none go with me, I still will follow,

Tho' none go with me I still will follow,

Tho' none go with me, I still will follow;

No turning back, no turning back.

 

My cross I'll carry, till I see Jesus;

My cross I'll carry till I see Jesus,

My cross I'll carry till I see Jesus;

No turning back, No turning back.

 

The world behind me, the cross before me,

The world behind me, the cross before me;

The world behind me, the cross before me;

No turning back, no turning back.


I Love to Tell the Story

I love to tell the story of unseen things above

Of Jesus and his glory of Jesus and his love

I love to tell the story because I know 'tis true

It satisfies my longings as nothing else can do


(chorus)

I love to tell the story

'Twill be my theme in glory

To tell the old, old story

Of Jesus and his love


I love to tell the story for those who know it best

Seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest

And when in scenes of glory I sing the new, new song

'Twill be the old, old story that I have loved so long


(Chorus)



I Love You Lord

I love you, Lord

And I lift my voice

To worship You

Oh, my soul rejoice! 

Take joy my King

In what You hear

Let it be a sweet, sweet sound in Your ear


In the Garden

I come to the garden alone

While the dew is still on the roses

And the voice I hear, falling on my ear

The Son of God discloses


(Chorus)

And he walks with me

And he talks with me

And he tells me I am His own

And the joy we share as we tarry there

None other has ever known


He speaks and the sound of His voice

Is so sweet the birds hush their singing

And the melody that He gave to me

Within my heart is ringing


[Chorus]


I'd stay in the garden with Him

'Tho the night around me be falling

But He bids me go, through the voice of woe

His voice to me is calling


[Chorus]


Leaning on the Everlasting Arms

What a fellowship, what a joy divine

Leaning on the everlasting arms

What a blessedness, what a peace is mine

Leaning on the everlasting arms


(Chorus)

Leaning, leaning

Safe and secure from all alarms

Leaning, leaning

Leaning on the everlasting arms


What have I to dread, what have I to fear

Leaning on the everlasting arms?

I have blessed peace with my Lord so near

Leaning on the everlasting arms


(chorus)


Majesty, Worship His Majesty

Majesty, worship his majesty;

Unto Jesus be all glory, honor, and praise.

Majesty, kingdom authority,

Flow from his throne unto his own, his anthem raise.


So exalt, lift up on high the name of Jesus.

Magnify, come glorify Christ Jesus, the King.

Majesty, worship his majesty,

Jesus who died, now glorified, King of all kings. 


Open the Eyes of My Heart

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord

Open the eyes of my heart

I want to see You

I want to see You

 

To see You high and lifted up

Shinin' in the light of Your glory

Pour out Your power and love

As we sing holy, holy, holy


Sanctuary

Lord prepare me

To be a sanctuary

Pure and holy

Tried and true

And with thanksgiving

I'll be a living

Sanctuary, oh for You


Seek Ye First

Seek ye first the kingdom of God

And His righteousness

And all these things shall be added unto you

Allelu, alleluia


Man does not live by bread alone

But by every word

That proceeds from the mouth of God

Allelu, alleluia


Ask and it shall be given unto you

Seek and ye shall find

Knock and the door shall be opened unto you

Allelu, alleluia


Standing on the Promises

Standing on the promises of Christ my King,

Through eternal ages let His praises ring,

Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,

Standing on the promises of God.


(chorus)

Standing, standing,

Standing on the promises of God my Savior;

Standing, standing,

I'm standing on the promises of God.


Standing on the promises that cannot fail,

When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,

By the living Word of God I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God.


(chorus)


Standing on the promises I now can see
Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
Standing on the promises of God.


(Chorus) 


Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love's strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit's sword,
Standing on the promises of God.


(chorus) 


Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
Listening every moment to the Spirit's call
Resting in my Savior as my all in all,
Standing on the promises of God


This Little Light of Mine

This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine

This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine,
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine,
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine


Hide it under a bushel, NO!...

Won't let satan blow it out....

Light it shine 'til Jesus comes..


This is the Day

This is the day, this is the day.

That the Lord has made, that the Lord has made.

We will rejoice, we will rejoice,

And be glad in it, and be glad in it.

This is the day that the Lord has made.

We will rejoice and be glad in it.

This is the day, this is the day

That the Lord has made.


To God Be the Glory

To God be the glory, great things He has done;

So loved He the world that He gave us His Son, 

Who yielded His life an atonement for sin, 

And opened the life gate that all may go in.


(Chorus)
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, 
Let the earth hear His voice! 

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, 

Let the people rejoice! 

O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son, 

And give Him the glory, great things He has done.


O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood, 

To every believer the promise of God; 

The vilest offender who truly believes, 

That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.


(chorus)


Great things He has taught us, great things He has done, 

And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son; 

But purer, and higher, and greater will be

Our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see.


(chorus)


What a Friend We Have in Jesus

What a friend we have in Jesus

All our sins and griefs to bear

And what a privilege to carry

Everything to God in prayer

Oh, what peace we often forfeit

Oh, what needless pain we bear

All because we do not carry

Everything to God in prayer


Have we trials and temptations?

Is there trouble anywhere?

We should never be discouraged

Take it to the Lord in prayer

Can we find a friend so faithful

Who will all our sorrows share?

Jesus knows our every weakness

Take it to the Lord in prayer
