CHORUS Praise the Lord, O my soul Praise him all my days Praise him with my every breath All glory to his name v1 Do not trust in earthly power Mortal men who cannot save For their strength will soon depart And like the grass they fade away v2 Rather we shall hope in God O how blessed to know his grace Who made earth and sky above Whose faithfulness shall never fail CHORUS v3 He gives justice for the poor To the hungry brings relief Opens up the blinded eyes And he will set the captives free v4 He restores the weary soul Yet defeats all wickedness Crowns the widow with his love A Father to the fatherless CHORUS He has come to walk with us Making known the heart of God Christ our life our only hope And he shall reign forevermore CHORUS
The Lord’s my light - I shall not fear The Lord is my salvation My tower of strength; my God is near In every situation Though enemies on every side And armies rise against me I have a stronghold for my life: My saviour Christ is with me One thing I ask, and I would seek To gaze upon his beauty To dwell with God and never leave And see him in his glory He hides me in his holy tent When troubles rise around me Here on this rock I stand secure: My saviour Christ is with me Give ear O Lord, and hear my cry Pour out your grace and mercy I seek your face with all my heart Don’t turn your goodness from me O God my help, forsake my not When others turn against me But you O Lord preserve my life My saviour Christ is with me Teach me your way O Lord my God Make level paths before me My enemies with lying tongues Do violence against me I’ll see the goodness of the Lord Each day that I am living Be strong my soul and wait for God My saviour Christ is with me
God my helper, come to save me By your name, preserve my life Hear prayer, Lord, hear my groaning Vindicate me by your might Strangers rise to come against me Ruthless men who seek my life They have turned from you to evil But the Lord is by my side God my helper, you are with me You sustain my weary life You bring judgement on all evil Put an end to every strife All my praise to you I’ll offer Give you thanks, for you are good You deliver me from trouble And I triumph through your blood
Those who wait on the Lord Will renew their strength They will rise on eagles wings They will run and not grow weary They will walk and not be faint I will wait, I will wait for the Lord (repeat v1) The steadfast love Of the Lord never ends His mercies will endure They are new every morning They arise like the dawn How great is his faithfulness (repeat v1)
V1 Lord have mercy on this sinner For the sake of your great love Wash away my great transgression All the wrongs that I have done V2 For the words that I have spoken For the thoughts I try to hide For the promises I’ve broken For my weakness, for my pride Ch 1 Lord have mercy! Lord have mercy! How I need your grace to know Though my sins are red as scarlet Wash them whiter than the snow V3 Praise to God who heard my groaning Praise to Christ who died for me He was slain to win my pardon Shed his blood to make me clean Ch2 It is finished! It is finished! End of guilt and fear and shame! He has loved me, made me holy: Brightest treasure of his grace Ch3 It is finished! It is finished! Oh what joy those words afford None can shake me, nor accuse me I am hid with Christ in God.
Lord you reign in glorious light Robed in majesty You uphold the earth and sky From your ageless throne Your decrees are ever sure Age to age they stand Holiness adorns your courts Lord, for endless days Ch: Ruler of the ocean deep You command the raging seas Lord you are mighty Lord you are mighty Bridge: Storms may come and floods may rise Be our refuge Lord most high
O Lord, how long? How long will you forget me? O Lord, how long will you conceal your face? O Lord, how long will sorrows rise within me And will my heart know anguish all the day? O Lord, how long? Give ear to hear my cry I look to you, or Lord I surely die Light up my eyes when all around is darkness Turn back your face, and hear me when I call Consider me, incline your ear and answer Or will my foes rejoice to see my fall Light up my eyes! For you O Lord I wait I look to you, O Lord do not delay But I will trust in your unfailing mercy I will delight in your unending grace My soul will sing as I await the morning I will rejoice, though sorrow fills my days Yes I will trust in you my gracious Lord You have been good, and shall be evermore
Lord, make haste to save me God, do not delay! May my many foes be Turned away in shame Bring them to dishonour: Those who seek my hurt Turn away their scorn and Cruel and angry words May all those who seek you Sing for joy always Praising your salvation Saying ‘God is Great!’ I am poor and needy Hasten to my aid God my strong deliv’rer Lord, do not delay! Glory to the Father Glory to the Son Glory to the Spirit Blessed three in one! As in the beginning, Now and evermore. O make haste to save me Blessed glorious Lord
To you I call O Lord my rock Do not be deaf to me For if I do not hear your voice I’ll sink into the grave Oh hear my cry for mercy I call to you for aid I lift my hands towards you Lord Towards your dwelling place Chorus: You are our fortress, Lord Mighty and strong to save You are our shepherd Carry us in your arms Carry us in your arms Carry us in your arms O Lord Don’t treat me like your enemies Who turn to evil deeds Who harbour malice in their hearts But with their lips speak peace Bring back on them what they deserve Let no sin go unpaid Yet I myself have unclean hands I fall upon your grace Chorus All praise to God who heard my cry For grace in time of need The Lord’s my strength and mighty shield My soul will trust in him My heart exalts and sings for joy I will give thanks to him He rules with justice and with grace Through his anointed king Chorus
