Track Name: Come Thou Fount (We'll Feast)
Come, Thou Fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above;
Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it,
Mount of God's unchanging love!

We’ll feast… on grace abundant
Drink deep… from Spirit-streams
Your love… pours out in fountains
By your light, your light we’ll see.

Here I raise my Ebenezer;
Hither by Thy help I'm come;
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood.


O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I'm constrained to be!
Let that grace now, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee:
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here's my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.


Track Name: All Creatures (Give Glory)
All creatures of our God and King,
Lift up your voice and with us sing
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
Thou silver moon with softer gleam,
Oh, praise Him! Oh, praise Him!

Give glory! God is One, is Three…
Is Love from all eternity.
God is our dear Father!
God is our dear Father!

Thou rushing wind that art so strong,
Ye clouds that sail in heaven along,
Thou rising morn, in praise rejoice,
Ye lights of evening, find a voice!
Oh, praise Him! Oh, praise Him!

Thou flowing water, pure and clear,
Make music for thy Lord to hear,
Thou fire so masterful and bright,
That givest us both warmth and light,
Oh, praise Him! Oh, praise Him!

In time, to heal us from within,
He took, Himself, our bone and skin.
God is the beloved Son!
God is the beloved Son!

And everyone of tender heart,
Forgiving others, take your part.
Ye who long pain and sorrow bear,
Praise God and on Him cast your care!
Oh, praise Him! Oh, praise Him!

Poured out now, He in hearts made well,
In sons and daughters deigns to dwell
God is Holy Spirit!
God is Holy Spirit!
To Father, Son, and Spirit, God
Give glory, then, great glory!

Let all things their Creator bless,
And worship Him in humbleness.
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
And praise the Spirit, Three in One!
Oh, praise Him! Oh, praise Him!

O sing ye! Oh praise Him
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Track Name: How Can It Be?
How can it be that I would take
Interest in Jesus’ death?
Even when he died for me –
The one who put him there to die

Amazing love, how can it be
That you, my God, would die for me!

Who would have thought that God could die?
Who could even understand?
Even the angels shook their heads
No one could ever comprehend.


When Jesus left Heaven above
A free and boundless gift of love
Given to us, a helpless race
Searching me out so I could see God’s face.

Never will I now fear to die
Jesus and life with him are mine
Free from those chains I stand released
Amazed by this love God’s given to me.

Track Name: Of the Father's Love (Love Shines)
Of the Father's love begotten, ere the worlds began to be
He is Alpha and Omega, He the source, the ending He
Of the things that are, that have been,
And that future years shall see, evermore and evermore!

Love shines with glory, shines with light
Has pierced the sin-dark shroud of night
O come you lost, who long for home
Obey the Son, the faithful One,
Begotten of the Father's love.

O ye heights of heav'n adore Him; angel hosts, His praises sing;
Power, dominions, bow before Him, and extol our God and King.
Let no tongue on earth be silent
Evey voice in concert ring, evermore and evermore!


Christ, to Thee with God the Father, and, O Holy Ghost, to Thee
Hymn and chant and high thanksgiving and unwearied praises be.
Honor, glory, and dominion
And eternal victory, evermore and evermore!

Track Name: Home
The land looks so strange, yet it's strangely dear
The colors are brighter and suddenly clear
The eagle takes wing and circles around
From up there she sees what I don’t from the ground

I have come home...
This is my country, the land of my hope
The place I am seeking, the rest I have sought
My heart cries out, my spirit’s aloft
I’ve longed for this place, and now...
I have come home... I have come home!

But I was told I would never get back
I saw it all destroyed, this land was a wreck
But it all was a shadow, it all was a dream
Of a greater place more real than that seemed

The way is the door, the door is the key
The lamb and the lion they lay down to sleep
The lion of God calls me home every day
And I long to hear Him say...
You have come home...
