Jesus, the ruler of all nature,
The long-awaited Savior,
The King of kings forever.

Jesus, the wonder of the shepherds,
The healer of the lepers,
The calmer of the waters.

Pre-Chorus:
All praise and honor He has claimed –
All pow’r and glory.
All hell is trembling at the name of Jesus!

Chorus:
Sing with the angels, come and
Shout with old Simeon and
Cry with the women that His mercy freed, O
Follow the fishermen and
Bow with the sinners, because
We are in awe of the authority of Christ.

Jesus, Who spoke in puzzling parables,
Who left the haughty humbled,
Who challenged and who troubled.

Jesus, Who freely gave forgiveness,
Confounding all who witnessed
That he could show such boldness.
(Pre-chorus & Chorus)

Jesus, Who let the mob be furious,
Submitting to their blood lust,
Rose to life victorious!
(Pre-chorus & Chorus)

Verse 1:
May we run this race, may we keep the faith;
May our eyes be fixed on Jesus –
That we’ll not lose heart in our struggle with sin,
And through suffering know endurance.

May we arm ourselves with the mind of Christ
To rejoice in trials and be not surprised.
May our hearts be so consumed by You
That we never cease to praise.

Verse 2:
May our company be the saints You’ve called.
May we all stand firm in one spirit –
That the gospel’s truth may resound on earth,
That all living things may hear it.

May the fruits of faith mark the path we trod
Through the life of Christ, to the glory of God.
May our hearts be so consumed by You
That we never cease to praise.

Verse 3:
May the words we share be Your grace and peace,
May our tongues speak Your proclamations –
That the many parts of the body of Christ
Be affirmed in their right relation.

As we long and wait for the groom to come,
May we learn to love, and spur each other on.
May our hearts be so consumed by You
That we never cease to praise.

Verse 4:
When that day arrives, and the race is won,
When our griefs give way to deliverance,
We will fully know, as we’re fully known.
All our groans will end as new songs begin,

And a multitude from every tribe and tongue
Wearing robes of white, will stand before Your throne
And our hearts will be so consumed by You
That we’ll never cease to praise!

May our hearts be so consumed by You
That we never cease to praise.

“Your Grace Astounds Me”

Verse 1:
In the still of this sanctuary,
Lord, Your light is more than I can bear.
I must come in the way You require,
Holy and pure.

I am humbled, for I am just mortal,
And there’s nothing in me that is good.
Yet You cover me with Your perfection –
With Your own blood.

Chorus:
You have done all that Your law demands,
With Your outstretched arms,
You have stayed Your own hand.
So I stand, safe on this holy ground,
God, Your grace astounds me,
God, Your grace astounds me!

Verse 2:
I am blessed with the greatest of privilege,
Justified in the presence of God.
If I strived all my days to attain it,
I could not.

Verse 1:
You’re the God of the falling fire.
You’re the God of the coming rain.
You’re the God of the gentle whisper –
Surely You are,
Surely You are

Chorus:
The one true God –
Strong yet beautiful,
Just yet merciful,
Proving Yourself to be
The one true God –
Never changing, but
Still mysterious
The infinite, yet intimate God.

Verse 2:
You’re the God of the humble manger.
You’re the God of the healing word.
You’re the God of the blood and water,
Surely You are,
Surely You are
