Song Lyrics for tonight

Come Thou Fount

Verse 1:
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 Thy redeeming love.

Verse 2:
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood;
How His kindness yet pursues me,
Mortal tongue can never tell,
Clothed in flesh, till death shall loose me,
I cannot proclaim it well.

Verse 3:
O to grace how great a debtor,
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, 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.

Verse 4:
O that day when freed from sinning,
I shall see Thy lovely face;
Clothed then in blood washed linen,
How I’ll sing Thy sovereign grace;
Come, my Lord, no longer tarry,
Take my ransomed soul a-way.
Send thine angels now to carry,
Me to realms of endless day.

God is Our Refuge

Verse 1:
God is our refuge, our help in trouble.
We will not fear though the earth gives way.
God is our refuge, our help in trouble.
We will not fear though the earth gives way.

Chorus:
Though the mountains shake and the oceans roar
There’s a peace that runs through the river’s course.
We will overcome in this world so torn
As the nations bow to the Lord of Lords.
We will not fear.

Verse 2:
There is a river, flowing with clear streams.
It’s making glad, the city of God.
Our God is for us, a mighty fortress.
He is our help, when the morning dawns.

Chorus:
Though the mountains shake and the oceans roar
There’s a peace that runs through the river’s course.
We will overcome in this world so torn
As the nations bow to the Lord of Lords.
We will not fear.

Bridge:
Emmanuel, God with us.
Emmanuel, God with us.
Emmanuel, God with us this day
Emmanuel, God with us.
Emmanuel, God with us.
Emmanuel, God with us this day.

Chorus:
Though the mountains shake and the oceans roar
There’s a peace that runs through the river’s course.
We will overcome in this world so torn
As the nations bow to the Lord of Lords.
We will not fear. We will not fear.

Great is Thy Faithfulness

There is no shadow of turning with Thee.
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not.
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided.

Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness,
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide.
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!”  
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided.  
“Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!
