The King Is Coming Today!                                                                    Lloyd Larson

Let the rocks cry out, let the people shout,
“He comes in the name of the Lord!”
Praise the King of kings, lift your voice and sing,
“He comes in the name of the Lord!”
Hosanna, hosanna!  The King is coming today!
Hosanna, hosanna!  With palms prepare Him the way.
The King is coming today!

All glory, laud, and honor to Thee, Redeemer, King,
to whom the lips of children made sweet hosannas ring.
Thou art the King of Israel, thou David’s royal Son,
who in the Lord’s name comest, the King and blessed One!
Hosanna, hosanna!  The King is coming today!
Hosanna, hosanna!  With palms prepare Him the way.
The King is coming today, today, today!

 

Lord of the Wind and the Sea                                                                   Lloyd Larson

He is the Lord of the wind and the sea. He calmed the storm and He rescued me.
He is the Lord of the wind and the sea. He healed the lame, made the blind to see.

Jesus the humble carpenter’s Son, revealed by God as the Holy One!
Servant to all, the strong and the weak, with truth He comes to those who seek.
   He is the Lord of the wind and the sea. . .

He turned the water into wine, He raised the dead by God’s pow’r divine.
One the mountainside the crowd was fed
with a few small fish and some loaves of bread.
He is the Lord of the wind and the sea. . .

God so loved the world that He gave His only Son,
that all who believe in Him might be won to the Lord of the wind and the sea,
the Teacher from Galilee. He is the Lord of the wind and the sea.

 

Gathered in the Upper Room                             Patricia Mock and Faye Lopez

Gathered as the time was drawing near, the Savior spoke to those so dear.
Just a while before He had to go, with tenderness He showed such care.
Sitting ‘round the table for a meal, He shared with them the Father’s will.
There, together in the Upper Room, preparing now for what would come.

“Peace I leave with you, not as the world would give,
that your joy may be complete, forever with Me live.”

Then the Master washed the feet of men, not just His servants, but His friends.
“When you take this cup and eat this bread, remember Me and all I’ve said.

As I love you, love one another, as I serve you, serve each other,
let your light shine! Let the world see a reflection of My love, My love.”
“Peace, my peace I leave with you, not as the world would give,
that your joy may be complete, forever with Me live.”

Knowing now the time was drawing near, gathered in the Upper Room.

 

 Gethsemane Prayer                                                                                    R. Kevin Boesiger

Father, my Father, please let this cup pass over me.
Father, O Father, take this cup from me.
But not my will, but not my will, not my will but Your’s be done.

Father, O, my Father, please let this cup pass over me.
Father, O my Father, please take this cup from me.
But not my will, but not my will, not my will but Your’s be done.
O, not my will, not my will, but Your will be done.

 

 Behold the Lamb!                                                   Pamela Stewart and Larry Shackley

By morning light a battered Man is laid upon a tree.
The hammer falls, the nails cry out that pierce His hands and feet.
He prays, “Forgive them, Father, for they do not understand.”
They come to crucify a man, but sacrifice a Lamb.
Behold the Lamb! Behold the sacrifice, the One who gives His life to set you free.
Behold the Lamb! The sacrifice is made, the ransom has been paid,
behold the Lamb!

He dies alone upon the cross; the Father turns away.
The sky becomes as black as night, the earth begins to quake.
And certain ones who witness it begin to understand.
They came to crucify a man, but sacrificed a Lamb.
Behold the Lamb! . . .

There was no other sacrifice, no other to atone.
None other than the pure and spotless Lamb of God alone!
Behold the Lamb! . . .

 

Hallelujah!  What a Savior                                              Philip P. Bliss, Molly Ijames

“Man of Sorrows,” what a name for the Son of God,
who came for ruined sinners to reclaim! Hallelujah!  What a Savior!

Bearing shame and scoffing rude, in my place condemned He stood;
sealed my pardon with His blood: Hallelujah!  What a Savior!

Lifted up was He to die, it is finished was His cry;
now in heav’n exalted high: Hallelujah! What a Savior!

When he comes, our glorious King, all His ransomed home to bring,
then anew this song we’ll sing, Hallelujah! What a Savior!

 

Christ is Risen!  Alleluia!                                                                                     Mark Hayes

All the world, rejoice!  People, lift your voice!
Christ is Risen! Christ is Risen! Alleluia!
Grave, where is your victory?  Death, where is your sting?
Robed in light for all to see, behold: the resurrected King!
Christ is risen! Alleluia! He has won the victory.
With Creator God Almighty, Christ will reign eternally!

Jesus Christ is risen! Alleluia! Death is defeated, redeeming Love has won! . . .

Jesus is risen! Death, where is your sting? Grave, where is your vict’ry?
Hail the risen King! Banish shades of sadness, shake off sorrow’s gloom.
See, the Lord is risen, risen from the tomb.

Jesus is risen! Death, where is your sting?  Grave, where is your vict’ry?
Hail the risen King! Jesus Christ is risen!
Hail Him, Christ the King! Jesus Christ is risen!  Alleluia!

 

Worthy Is the Lamb                                                                              Pepper Choplin

Clothed in righteousness, robed in glory, holy is the Lord of Hosts.
Blessing and honor, glory and power  to Him who reigns upon the throne.
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain
to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength.
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive honor and praise forever more.

I heard the voice of many angels, they were gathered ‘round the throne.
They were ten thousand times then thousand, all the angels joined as one.
Worthy is the Lamb . . .          AMEN!
