1. You Have Chosen Us

written by Laurie lang Croasdale

For You have chosen us (to celebrate)

You have chosen us (in this offering)

You have chosen us

to be adopted as sons and daughters of God (2x)

  1. We are a chosen people, we are a royal priesthood,
    a holy nation, A people belonging to God, a people belonging to God.
  2. That we may declare His praises, for He calls us from darkness to light,
    We had not received mercy but now we know mercy and life, yes now we know mercy and life.

2. How Sweet the Name

Written by John Newton, 1779, Music by Penny Seaberg

Words by John Newton, music by Penny Seaberg

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds

In a believer’s ear

It soothes their sorrows, heals their wounds,

And drives away each fear.


He makes the wounded spirit whole

And calms each troubled breast

He’s manna to the hungry soul

And to the weary rest


Dear Name!  The Rock on which I build

My shield and hiding place

My never failing treasury

Filled with boundless stores of grace


You are worthy, worthy, worthy of all praise


Jesus my shepherd, husband, friend

My Prophet, Priest and king

My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End

Accept the praise I bring




3. Holy Perfume

Written by Paul Lanser

A sweeter fragrance has never been known,
      purest beauty is yours alone.

When I think that Purest Love,

came to earth, to sinful man,
      counting the cost not too great a price.

Darkened hearts, like blackest night, washed in the love of your purest light, 

How great your love!


In beauty, you’re light inapproachable,

In love, you’re unequaled for all time.

In fragrance, the world has never known,

the likes of your perfume; Holy perfume.


A brighter light has never shown,
      reigning splendor is yours alone.

King of heaven, in honor You stand,

reigning now, forever more,
      You’re coming back to bring us home,

To live with You, in the splendor of,
      eternal life in your light of love,

How great Your love!


Holy perfume, Holy

Holy perfume, Holy


There’s fire in Your eyes, Yeshua,
      fire in Your gaze, only Son of God,

There’s fire in your eyes, Yeshua,
      fire in Your heart, for Your name’s sake.


You will be worshipped,

You will be worshipped,

You will be worshipped alone,

You alone will we praise




4. No End (Isaiah 9)

Written by Aggie Cook


No end.    No end.    No end.    No end.


Of the increase (Of the increase)

Of His government (Of His government)

And of peace (And of peace)

There will be no end.  No end. (repeat)

There will be no end. No end. No end. No end. No end.

  1. All of His mercies–new every morn
    All of His mercies–we are re-born
    All of His mercies–freely He gives
    All of His mercies–Jesus He lives!

  2. To all of creation–let His kingdom come
    In all of creation–let His will be done
    All of creation–prepare to bow low
    To all of creation–Jesus said Go!


No end.    No end.    No end.    No end.




5. Messiah

Written by Paul Lanser

To this broken world You came,

All to remember love.

In this broken world you lived, Yeshua.

Though the world was made through You,

You were not received.

Though You came unto Your own, they did not see.


You are Perfect Suffering, Perfect Peace,

Son of God and Son of Man,

Perfect Humility, You are longsuffering,

No longer hidden, we proclaim You


Messiah, Messiah,

Messiah, Messiah,


Worthy of glory, worthy of highest praise,

We bow before You, we’re living for your praise,

You are Messiah, Messiah,

Messiah, Messiah,


Messiah, For our sins, you were crushed

Messiah, For our sins, were sacrificed

Messiah, You purchased with so great a price

Messiah, Purchased our eternal life with You.

8. Wings of a Dove (Psalm 55)

Written by Penny Seaberg, 9/11/01

My heart’s in anguish within me

The terrors of death assail me

Fear and trembling have beset me

Horror has overwhelmed me



O that I’d wings of a dove

I would fly away and be

Fly away and be at rest



But I call out to God

And the Lord saves me

Evening, morning, and noon

I cry out in my distress

And He hears my voice




9. Be Thou My Vision

Ancient Irish song, arranged by Paul Lanser

Be Thou, my vision, O Lord of my heart;

Naught be all else to me save that Thou art.

Thou my best thought, by day or by night,

Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light,

Thy presence my light.

  1. Be Thou my wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
    I ever with Thee and Thou with me Lord;
    Thou my great Father, and I Thy true son;
    Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one, and I with Thee one.
  2. Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise;
    Thou mine inheritance, now and always;
    Thou and Thou only, first in my heart;
    High King of heaven, my Treasure Thou art; my Treasure Thou art.
  3. High King of heaven, my victory won,
    May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heav’n’s Son!
    Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
    Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all, O Ruler of all.

Be Thou my vision, Thou my great delight,

Be Thou my vision, in You I take delight.


You delight in us, O God,

We delight in You.


We delight in You, O Father,

All our fountains are in You.




10. In God Whose Word I Praise (Ps 56)

Written by Aggie Cook


In God whose Word I praise

In the Lord whose Word I praise, I will trust. I will trust.


What can mortal man do to me,

If the God of heaven has set me free?


I will not be afraid

I will not be afraid

I will not be afraid

With the Lord watching over me




11. Only You

By Hannah Lanser


When everything else is fading away

Only you, only you remain

When everything else is fading away

Only you remain


You remain, You remain


You are constant in your affections toward me

You are constant in your love


Over and over and over I run

I run, I run to you


Oh when life is hard I run to you

And when life is good I run to you


You remain, you remain




12. Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

Traditional Hymn from the 1600s,
Arranged by Laurie Lang Croasdale

  1. Praise to the Lord,
    The Almighty, the King of creation!
    O my soul, praise Him,
    For He is thy health and salvation!
    All ye who hear,
    Now to His temple draw near;
    Praise Him in glad adoration.
  2. Praise to the Lord,
    Who over all things so wondrously reigneth,
    Shelters thee under His wings,
    Yea, so gently sustaineth!
    Hast thou not seen
    How thy entreaties have been
    Granted in what He ordaineth?
  3. Praise to the Lord,
    Who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;
    Surely His goodness
    And mercy here daily attend thee.
    Ponder anew
    What the Almighty can do,
    If with His love He befriend thee.
  4. Praise to the Lord,
    O let all that is in me adore Him!
    All that hath life and breath,
    Come now with praises before Him.
    Let the Amen
    Sound from His people again,
    Gladly for aye we adore Him.
