Track Name: Only Through Jesus
You are holy
One and only
You are perfect
Spotless purity
Who can come to
Stand before you?
Who can dare come
Near your holy throne?

Only he who has clean hands
Only he who has a pure heart
So I know I cannot stand
Cannot stand before the Father

Jesus, your righteousness
Has covered us with kindness
Jesus, we love to
Bow our lives before you
And hide our hearts in you

We are empty
Christ is fullness
We are dirty
He’s unstained by sin
We are broken
He was broken
He was torn so
We could be made whole

Only Jesus has clean hands
Only Jesus has a pure heart
Only Jesus Christ can stand
He can stand before his Father

Only through Jesus (x3)
We come

Only Jesus has clean hands
Only Jesus has a pure heart
So through Jesus’ blood we come
We can stand before our Father
Track Name: I See You in a Garden (Great Is the King)
I see you in a garden, kneeling there in darkness
Making there the choice that saved the world
I see you on a hillside; your arms are opened out wide
Bearing all my sin, you saved the world

Great is the King
Riding out in victory
Worthy of praise
Crowned with joy in majesty, majesty

I see you in a garden, buried in the darkness
Shrouded in our shame and wrapped in death
I see you in the sunrise, walking in the morning
Death is overcome; you are alive

You are the only Savior
You are the only Healer
You are the only Finder of our souls
You are the risen Savior
You are the glorious Healer
You are the only Conqueror of our souls

I see you in a city, beautiful in splendor
All of heaven and earth are made anew
I see you in your glory, saints and angels singing
By the Father’s side you rule the world
Track Name: Jesus Christ Is the Same
The Accuser says of me:
“Unworthy and unloved”
The cross speaks over me
My Savior's worth and love
He sings his grace around my heart
Against the lie he stands
He is true forevermore
The scars forever on his hands
The scars forever on his hands

Jesus Christ is the same
Through all of our yesterdays, he has not changed
For tomorrow, his love will still remain
And today, he reigns

When doubt grips me again
And I cannot endure
Christ the true “Amen”
Makes every promise sure
The future holds no guarantees,
Shifting like the sand
Jesus is my Rock and he will
Hold me tightly in his hands
He holds me tightly in his hands

When I am numb and worn
And grief is all I see
Mercies are reborn
Each morning faithfully
The Savior knows each tear that falls
Jesus understands
Safe in him forevermore
To him alone I lift my hands
To him alone I lift my hands

His death says: Love will never leave me
His death says: Mercy never fails
His life says: None can overcome him
His life says: Grace always prevails
Track Name: Ephesians (In the Church)
All the earth will sing you, all the tribes will bring you
All the honor due your name
All the kings will bow down, all the peoples around
The whole world will sing your praise

Oh hosanna! Glory to God in the highest heaven and in the church
Hallelujah! Jesus is coming back, shows his wisdom, his fullness and fame
In the church

Rescued, ransomed, and glorified we stand
One new man in Christ the King
With one love we serve you; you alone deserve to
Be the first in everything

Redeemed from all danger, we’re no longer strangers
Boldly we draw near by grace
No longer divided, at the cross united
Built into God’s dwelling place

One God: one Father, one Spirit, one Savior
One solid foundation; one hope for salvation
One people, united; one passion, ignited
One race that’s worth running, one King who is coming

Uyez’uyeza uJesu uyeza (2x)
- Jesus is coming
Uyez’uyeza uJesu masinyane (2x)
- Jesus is coming as soon as possible
Halalu uJesu uyinkosi (2x)
- Praise him, Jesus is King
Siyamdumis’ uJesu thinasonke (2x)
- We praise Jesus together
Track Name: uJesu Wahlenga
Jesus has redeemed my soul
Jesus is my only hope
When I’m weak my God is strong
When I’m sad he is my song

And I will give to you my everything
Siyabonga, siyabonga
(We thank you, we thank you)
For you have given me your everything

Ujesu wahlenga umoya wami
Ujesu uyithemba lami
Uma ngikhathele ungamandla ami
Uma ngilusizi uyiculo lami
Track Name: Galaxies (Unfailing Love)
Look at the galaxies—they shine
Majesty, majesty
See how the mountains etch the sky
Faithfulness, faithful

Look at the cross—it speaks of
Unfailing, unfailing love
The tomb that proved He was enough
Unfailing, unfailing love

Hear endless waves that wash the beach
Forgiveness, forgiveness
Feel how the rain falls on your cheek
Tenderness, tender

The hands that made the world
Bear the scars that saved the world
Track Name: Praise the Name
Desired of all nations, you’re the promise of Abraham
You’re Moses’ fire and you’re burning in the soul of a man
Ancient of Days, before creation was, you were
And in you the stars and the atoms hold together

Praise the name of Jesus
Praise the name of Jesus
Matchless in grace and endless in fame
Is the name of Jesus,
Is the name of Jesus.

Immortal King, you’re the fullness of all deity
In you the light of the Father dwells bodily
Yet you took my flesh, you understand my weakness
Your obedience is humanity’s completeness

Lamb that was slain before the foundation of the world
You knew my name long before the earth first turned
Yet you cried the tears of the hell we deserved
And you took the fear of the hell we had earned

You bore my death and went to my grave
Laid in the tomb till the third day
Your heart beats now, victorious you rise
You are alive
Track Name: Oh That You'd Rend the Heavens
Oh that you’d rend the heavens and come down
That the mountains might quake
That the nations might tremble and shake
At your presence
From ancient days no eye has seen
And no ear has heard
A God like you who does awesome deeds
We need your presence

Show us your glory, and draw near to us
As we bow and worship you, send your presence (3x)

The face whose glory even Moses feared
The name they could not speak
Yahweh so holy, they could not draw near
To your presence
Now all your glory’s in the face of Christ
And he has made a way
Through our great priest and sacrifice
We enter your presence

You’ve shown us your glory; You’ve drawn near to us
Now we ask for more of you: send your presence (3x)

And as we go from here, set us apart
Let us be to the world
A people whose every move is marked
By your presence, by your presence
By your presence
Track Name: Find Rest / Cling
Thank you—you are so faithful
Though I fall, you’re always grace-full
Forgive me for putting idols above you
I need your help just to love you, Lord

Find rest, O my soul
Content yourself in Christ alone
For his love never fails
And he will never
He will never
He will never let you go

I’ve lived for too long this way
In pride, I cheapen your grace
But you are near to the heart that’s humble
So at your cross I crumble, Lord

Building monuments to me
I’m left unsatisfied
All that’s left are emptiness
And dregs of restless of pride
I will rise and go to him
Who fills the empty full
There I find he satisfies
He satisfies my soul

Behold, you make all things new
Jesus, come and make me new, too
My heart is dry and desert thirsty
I cast myself upon your mercy, Lord

/


Jesus, how I love you; Jesus, how I need you
Jesus, I will cling to you
When all around has gone away, you
Remain

Jesus, I still love you; Jesus, I still need you
Jesus, I’m going to cling to you
When my cold heart has gone astray, you
Remain

I will cling to the Rock that was cleft for me
I will sing of the Tree that brought life to me
Let me share in the brokenness of suffering
That I might come to understand
The beauty of your broken hands

Jesus, how I love you; Jesus, how I need you
Jesus, I’m going to cling to you
When my cold heart has gone astray
When my lips forget how to pray
When there’s no light left in the day
When all around have gone away, you
Remain
Track Name: Jesus Saves
Broken, barren, buried by sin
We were helpless, we were hopeless
Then by God’s design, Jesus stepped in
He was beaten, He was bruised, then
He was buried by all our sin
So by God’s design, He was condemned
But he rose again

Jesus saves: He paid the price I could not pay
No longer a slave, I am set free from all sin’s chains
The most glorious name: Jesus saves

Identified, there with Christ
Our old selves were crucified
Now we’re raised with him into new life
Justified, we’re made righteous
We’ve been seated in the highest
Now we’re raised with him for all time
I am his and he is mine

Jesus saves: My King has conquered the grave
No longer afraid, I am made new, I am changed
The most glorious name: Jesus saves

In that crucifixion place
Wrath and love met face to face
And into history’s darkest day
You shone your grace
Track Name: Moment by Moment
Never a trial that He is not there
Never a burden He does not bear
Never a sorrow he does not share
Moment by moment I’m under His care

Never a battle with wrong for the right
Never a contest He does not fight
Lifting above us His banner of light
Moment by moment, I’m kept in His sight

Moment by moment, His death is mine
Living each moment in new life divine
Looking to Jesus till his glory shines
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine

Never a heartache, never a groan
Never a teardrop, never a moan
Never a danger but there on the throne
Moment by moment He thinks of His own

Never a weakness He does not feel
Never a sickness He cannot heal
Moment by moment, in woe or in weal
Jesus my Savior, abides with me still
Track Name: Mary's Song
If I could thank you enough
If I could show you my love
Then I would break my heart
And pour it out, an alabaster jar

If I could adore you, Lord
Yes that’s what these tears are for
You have forgiven me so much
So I will give an extravagant love

If I could delight your heart
If I could express how kind you are
Then I would choose this one thing
To be found at the feet of my King
To be found at the feet of my King
Track Name: Ephesians (Tonuya reprise)
Tonuya gbe Jesu ga (Egbega)
Tonuya ewa wole
Araiye wole, araiye juba
Araiye wole, araiye juba

(Praise the Lord, lift Jesus high
Praise the Lord, let us bow down
All the earth bows down, all the earth worships)
Track Name: I See You in a Garden (remix)
I see you in a garden, kneeling there in darkness
Making there the choice that saved the world
I see you on a hillside; your arms are opened out wide
Bearing all my sin, you saved the world

Great is the King
Riding out in victory
Worthy of praise
Crowned with joy in majesty, majesty

I see you in a garden, buried in the darkness
Shrouded in our shame and wrapped in death
I see you in the sunrise, walking in the morning
Death is overcome; you are alive

You are the only Savior
You are the only Healer
You are the only Finder of our souls
You are the risen Savior
You are the glorious Healer
You are the only Conqueror of our souls

I see you in a city, beautiful in splendor
All of heaven and earth are made anew
I see you in your glory, saints and angels singing
By the Father’s side you rule the world
