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

So here I am to worship
Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You're my God
And 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

So here I am to worship
Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You're my God
And You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me

And I'll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross
And I'll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross

Here I am to worship
Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You're my God
And You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me


Luke 15:1-10
All the tax collectors and sinners were coming near to listen to Jesus. And the Pharisees and the scribes were grumbling and saying, "This fellow welcomes sinners and eats with them." So he told them this parable: "Which one of you, having a hundred sheep and losing one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one that is lost until he finds it? When he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders and rejoices. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, `Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.' Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance. "Or what woman having ten silver coins, if she loses one of them, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? When she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, `Rejoice with me, for I have found the coin that I had lost.' Just so, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."

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.

Alleluia, Allelu, Alleluia, Alleluia.
Alleluia, Allelu, Alleluia, Allelu, Alleluia.

‘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
We have already come.
It’s grace that brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home.

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 first begun

Jesus loves me this I know
For the Bible tells me so
Little ones to him belong
They are weak but he is strong

Song in the Evening

What can I give to my God, my God,
For all He’s done for me?
All I have is the life He gave me
And the love that sets me free
And there are times when I feel so low
I feel that I’ve got only shame.
Oh, Lord, take a song in the evening
And hear me when I call your name

He gave me words
And the breath to sing them
And the strength to make them sound
In every sad town and cryin city where
I make my song go round
And He’s the one who there to listen
To the gladness and the pain
Oh Lord, take a song in the evening
And hear me when I call your name.

All that I have is the work of my hands
So I offer You this bread
And I can drink to the promise of Life
Made in the blood you shed
And I can shout to the world around me
All the joy your words proclaim

Oh Lord, take a song in the evening
Oh Lord, take a song in the evening
Oh Lord, take a song in the evening

And hear me when I call your name.

Shout to the Lord

My Jesus, my Savior, Lord there is none like You!
All of my days I want to praise
the wonders of Your mighty love.

My comfort, my shelter, tower of refuge and strength,
Let every breath, all that I am,
never cease to worship you.

Shout to the Lord, all the earth let it sing,
Power and majesty, praise to the King;
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
at the sound of Your Name.
I sing for joy at the work of your hands;
Forever I’ll love you, forever I’ll stand.
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You
