Defender

A torrent of destruction hid
my darkest soul from rescuing
I cry to God for help
He heard my voice
The tainted earth, it rocked and reeled
The heaven's bow, the mountains kneel
The thunderous voice of God my covering

I will not be afraid
For my hope is in his name
Who is the rock but our God?
Whose blood has sealed our freedom?
Jesus
Our Saviour
Defender
Redeemer

You brought me to a safer place
Equipped my hand and feet with strength
So I advance with confidence in Christ
His precious truth delivers me
From lies that wage war in me
Your victory is mine for all my days

I will not be afraid
For my hope is in his name
Who is the rock but our God?
Whose blood has sealed our freedom
Jesus
Our Saviour
Defender
Redeemer

You kneel down to raise me up
You my Lord
You my God
You rescue me with righteous love
You my Lord
Oh my God

Who is the rock but our God?
Whose blood has sealed our freedom?
Jesus
Our Saviour
Defender
Our redeemer

Defender
Our redeemer

 

It is Finished

There's no deed that can redeem us
There's no rite, no magic word
Only by the work of Jesus
Can salvation be secured

It is finished! He has done it!
Let your weary heart rejoice
Our redemption is accomplished
Raise a shout with ragged voice
And go bravely into battle
Knowing he has won the war
It is finished, lift your head
And weep no more

There's no sacrifice to offer
There's no penance to complete
Freely drink of living water
Without money come and feast
Let every sinner rejoice
Hear the dying victor's cry
Raise up your voice
Sing it out through earth and sky

It is finished! He has done it!
Let your weary heart rejoice
Our redemption is accomplished
Raise a shout with ragged voice
And go bravely into battle
Knowing he has won the war
It is finished, lift your head
And weep no more

 

Christ the Sure and Steady Anchor

Christ the sure and steady Anchor
In the fury of the storm
When the winds of doubt blow through me
And my sails have all been torn
In the suffering, in the sorrow
When my sinking hopes are few
I will hold fast to the Anchor
It shall never be removed

Christ the sure and steady Anchor
While the tempest rages on
When temptation claims the battle
And it seems the night has won
Deeper still then goes the Anchor
Though I justly stand accused
I will hold fast to the Anchor
It shall never be removed

Christ the sure and steady Anchor
Through the floods of unbelief
Hopeless somehow, oh my soul, now
Lift your eyes to Calvary
This my ballast of assurance
See his love forever proved
I will hold fast to the Anchor
It shall never be removed

Christ the sure and steady Anchor
As we face the wave of death
When these trials give way to glory
As we draw our final breath
We will cross that great horizon
Clouds behind and life secure
And the calm will be the better
For the storms that we endure

Christ the sure of our salvation
Ever faithful, ever true
We will hold fast to the Anchor
It shall never be removed

 

Come Lord Jesus

Come Lord Jesus, come
Come Lord Jesus, come

Come again to claim your own
Come to reap what you have sown
All creation weeps and groans for you
It's to you that we belong
It's to you we lift our song
How our spirits look and long for you

Come Lord Jesus, come
Come Lord Jesus, come

Like a thief in dead of night
Come, our everlasting light
Let your brilliance shame the brightest day
With your voice like endless seas
Wielding swords and stars and keys
Bring the nations to their knees, we pray

Come Lord Jesus, come
Come Lord Jesus, come

For though fitful is our flame
You're from age to age the same
Jesus, faithful is your name and true
So until the sun does rise
Till your trumpets rend the skies
Help us keep our restless eyes on you

Come Lord Jesus, come
Come Lord Jesus, come

 

Oh God

In the valley, oh God You're near
In the quiet, oh God You're near
In the shadow, oh God You're near
At my breaking, oh God You're near

Oh God, You never leave my side
Your love, will stand firm for all my life

In my searching, oh God You're near
In my wandering, oh God You're near
When I feel alone, oh God You're near
At my lowest, oh God You're near

Oh God, You never leave my side
Your love, will stand firm for all my life

Height nor depth nor anything else,
Could pull us apart
We are joined as one, by Your blood
Hope will rise, as we become more,
Than conquerors through,
The one who loved the world

Height nor depth nor anything else,
Could pull us apart
We are joined as one, by Your blood
Hope will rise, as we become more,
Than conquerors through,
The one who loved the world

Oh God, You never leave my side
Your love, will stand firm for all my life

Oh God, You never leave my side
Your love, will stand firm for all my life

Oh God, You never leave my side
Your love, will stand firm for all my life
