Two Wonders I Confess..............

We celebrate Communion, aka  The Lord's Supper depending on your church affiliation ,  or also called  the Sacrement  too, on the 5th Sunday of  a month, which fell on August 29. I prayed and sought the Lord all week for exactly what part of  this worship service He had for our body musically. Thinking of the cross where Jesus died, thinking of all He endured from the moment of His arrest up to that  moment of actual crucifixion and then those three long hours before His triumphant  words "It is finished",  God took me on an incredible muscial journey. The song  whose words  touched me the deepest  of  all those God gave me for today's service was the hymn  "Beneath the Cross of Jesus" ...... And from my stricken heart with tears  Two wonders I confess
The wonder of His glorious love     And my unworthiness...........
As I read them I wept. AS I wrote them out, copied and pasted  I wept. As I presented them to our team for practice, I wept. When we sang them this morning, I thought I would weep again, but only the desire to share that incredible sentiment as I sang  came out of me.   God ministered  to each of us this morning in this service as we sang, read the Word together, shared the Lord's Supper and prayed. I am sharing the words to the music God gave me for today with you.  Please as you read, or sing,  worship the Lord in the beauty of Holiness!


LET IT RISE
Let the glory of the Lord

Rise among us

Let the glory of the Lord

Rise among us

Let the praises of the King

Rise among us

Let it rise

Chorus 2

Let the songs of the Lord

Rise among us

Let the songs of the Lord

Rise among us

Let the joy of the King

Rise among us

Let it rise
REPEAT from *
Oh let it rise
Oh let it rise



I Stand In Awe of You

Verse 1

You are beautiful beyond description

Too marvelous for words

Too wonderful for comprehension

Like nothing ever seen or heard

Who can grasp Your infinite wisdom

Who can fathom the depth of Your love

You are beautiful beyond description

Majesty enthroned above

Chorus 1

And I stand I stand in awe of You

I stand I stand in awe of You

Holy God to whom all praise is due

I stand in awe of You
Verse 2

You are beautiful beyond description

Yet God crushed You for my sin

In agony and deep affliction

Cut off that I might enter in

Who can grasp such tender compassion

Who can fathom this mercy so free

You are beautiful beyond description

Lamb of God who died for me


Beneath The Cross of Jesus in Key of C (hymn)


Verse 1

Beneath the cross of Jesus

I gladly take my stand

The shadow of a mighty rock

Within a weary land

O blessed shelter from the storm

The sinner's sure retreat

O glorious place where heaven's love

And heaven's justice meet

Verse 2

There lies beneath its shadow

Upon the farther side

The darkness of an awful pit

That opens deep and wide

And there between us stands the cross

Of Him who died to save

With His own life-blood my lost soul

From that eternal grave


Verse 3

Upon the cross of Jesus

My eye by faith can see

The very dying form of one

Who suffered there for me

And from my stricken heart with tears


Two wonders I confess


The wonder of His glorious love


And my unworthiness

Verse 4

O Christ beneath that shadow

Be my abiding place

I ask no other sunshine than

The sunshine of Your face

Content to let the world go by

And count its gain but loss

This sinful self my only shame

My only hope Your cross


Lead Me To The Cross in key of D 

Verse 1

Saviour I come quiet my soul

Remember redemption's hill

Where Your blood was spilled

For my ransom

Misc 1

(PRE-CHORUS)

Everything I once held dear

I count it all as loss
Chorus 1

Lead me to the cross

Where Your love poured out

Bring me to my knees

Lord I lay me down

Rid me of myself

I belong to You

Oh lead me lead me to the cross

Verse 2

You were as I tempted and tried human

The word became flesh

Bore my sin and death

Now You're risen

Misc

(PRE-CHORUS)

Everything I once held dear

I count it all as loss
Chorus

Lead me to the cross

Where Your love poured out

Bring me to my knees

Lord I lay me down

Rid me of myself

I belong to You

Oh lead me lead me to the cross
Misc 2

(BRIDGE)

To Your heart

To Your heart

Lead me to Your heart

Lead me to Your heart

Chorus

Lead me to the cross

Where Your love poured out

Bring me to my knees

Lord I lay me down

Rid me of myself

I belong to You

Oh lead me

Lead me to the cross


How Deep The Father's Love For Us in key of D

Verse 1

How deep the Father's love for us

How vast beyond all measure

That He should give His only Son

To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss

The Father turns His face away

As wounds which mar the Chosen One

Bring many sons to glory

Verse 2

Behold the Man upon a cross

My sin upon His shoulders

Ashamed I hear my mocking voice

Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there

Until it was accomplished

His dying breath has brought me life

I know that it is finished

Verse 3
I will not boast in anything

No gifts no power no wisdom

But I will boast in Jesus Christ

His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward

I cannot give an answer

But this I know with all my heart

His wounds have paid my ransom
