Good Friday Songs
I STAND AMAZED
(HOW MARVELLOUS)

Verse 1
I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene
And wonder how He could love me
A sinner condemned unclean

 

Chorus
How marvellous how wonderful
And my song shall ever be
How marvellous how wonderful
Is my Saviour’s love for me

 

Verse 2
He took my sins and my sorrows
He made them His very own
He bore the burden to Calvary
And suffered and died alone


Chorus
How marvellous how wonderful
And my song shall ever be
How marvellous how wonderful
Is my Saviour’s love for me


Verse 3
For me it was, in the garden
He said, “Not my will, but Thine”
He had no griefs for His own soul
But sweat drops of blood for mine


Chorus
How marvellous how wonderful
And my song shall ever be
How marvellous how wonderful
Is my Saviour’s love for me


Verse 4
And with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see
It will be my joy through the ages
To sing of His love for me


Chorus
How marvellous how wonderful
And my song shall ever be
How marvellous how wonderful
Is my Saviour’s love for me

WHEN I SURVEY

Verse 1
When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride

 

Verse 2
See from His head His hands His feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down
Did ever such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown


Verse 3
Were the whole realm of nature mine
That were an offering far too small
Love so amazing so divine
Demands my soul my life my all

 

Chorus
Thank You for the cross
Thank You for the cross
Thank You for the cross my Lord


Chorus
Thank You for the cross
Thank You for the cross
Thank You for the cross my Lord

Ending
Love so amazing so divine
Demands my soul my life my all

 

Easter Sunday Songs
Yet Not I, But Through Christ in Me

1. What gift of grace
is Jesus my redeemer
There is no more
for heaven now to give
He is my joy,
my righteousness and freedom
My steadfast love,
my deep and boundless peace

To this I hold my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to his
Oh how strange and divine,
I can sing, "all is mine"
Yet not I but through Christ in me

 

2. The night is dark
but I am not forsaken
For by my side
the Saviour he will stay
I labour on
in weakness and rejoicing
For in my need
his power is displayed

To this I hold,
my Shepherd will defend me
Through the deepest valley
he will lead
Oh the night has been won
and I shall overcome
Yet not I but through Christ in me

 

3. No fate I dread,
I know I am forgiven
The future sure,
the price it has been paid
For Jesus bled and suffered
for my pardon
And he was raised
to overthrow the grave

To this I hold,
my sin has been defeated
Jesus now and ever is my plea
Oh the chains are released,
I can sing, "I am free"
Yet not I but through Christ in me

 

4. With every breath
I long to follow Jesus
For he has said
that he will bring me home
And day by day
I know he will renew me
Until I stand with joy
before the throne

To this I hold my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to him
When the race is complete
still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I but through Christ in me

Thine Be the Glory

Chorus
Thine be the glory
Risen conquering Son
Endless is the victory
Thou o'er death hast won

 

1. Thine be the glory
Risen conquering Son
Endless is the victory
Thou o'er death hast won
Angels in bright raiment
Rolled the stone away
Kept the folded grave clothes
Where thy body lay

Chorus

Thine be the glory
Risen conquering Son
Endless is the victory
Thou o'er death hast won
 

2. Lo Jesus meets us
Risen from the tomb
Lovingly he greets us
Scatters fear and gloom
Let the church with gladness
Hymns of triumph sing
For her Lord now liveth
Death hath lost its sting

Chorus

Thine be the glory
Risen conquering Son
Endless is the victory
Thou o'er death hast won
 

3. No more we doubt thee
Glorious prince of life
Life is nought without thee
Aid us in our strife
Make us more than conquerors
Through thy deathless love
Lead us in thy triumph
To thy home above

Chorus
Thine be the glory
Risen conquering Son
Endless is the victory
Thou o'er death hast won
