I Will Sing the Wondrous Story

I publish our song lists every week to help us reflect on our worship together. Join us next Sunday, February 14th at 10:00 a.m. to sing together, pray, and hear from God’s Word!

I Will Sing the Wondrous Story

Psalm 66:16
Come and hear, all you who fear God,
    and I will tell what he has done for my soul.

Psalm 89:1
I will sing of the steadfast love of the Lord, forever;
    with my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all generations.

Psalm 145:6-7
They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds,
    and I will declare your greatness.
They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness
    and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.

Luke 15:3-7
So he told them this parable:
 “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?  And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’  Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

John 10:14-16
 I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me,  just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.  And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd.

I will sing the wondrous story
Of the Christ who died for me
How He left the realms of glory
For the cross of Calvary.

Yes I’ll sing the wondrous story
Of the Christ who died for me,
Sing it with the saints in glory,
Gathered by the crystal sea.

I was lost, but Jesus found me,
Found the sheep that went astray,
Raised me up and gently led me
Back into the narrow way.

He will keep me till the river
Rolls its waters at my feet;
Then at last He’ll bring me over
Saved by grace and victory

Words: Francis H. Rowley (1886) Tune: Rowland H. Prichard, 1830, HYFRYDOL

It’s difficult to find the exact music for Robin Mark’s version because he uses the verses & chorus that traditionally go with the tune with which most Americans are familiar, but with the tune, HYFRYDOL (Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus), but I found a useable chart here.

Worship at Calvary: January 31

Call to Worship
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea.
I love you, O Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
my God, my rock in whom I take refuge,
my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
Psalm 46:1-2, 18:1-2

A Mighty Fortress is Our God

Be Unto Your Name

Revelation 7:11-12   And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”

Before the Throne — Sunday Song

A classic “newer” hymn. The text was written by Charitie Lees Bancroft in 1860. The alternate words and music were written by Vikki Cook. (© 1997 Sovereign Grace Worship) We’ve used this song in our church for several years and it’s a favorite of mine. It’s such a blessing to be reminded that we are held securely in God’s hands.

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
A great high priest whose name is love
Who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on His hands
My name is written on His heart
I know that while in heav’n He stands,
No tongue can bid me thence depart
No tongue can bid me thence depart

When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end of all my sin
Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free
For God the Just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me
To look on Him and pardon me

Behold Him there the risen Lamb
My perfect spotless righteousness
The great unchangeable I AM
The King of Glory and of Grace
One with Himself I cannot die
My soul is purchased by His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Savior and my God
With Christ my Savior and my God

Call to Worship:
Give the king your justice, O God,
and your righteousness to the royal son!
May he judge your people with righteousness,
and your poor with justice!
He will endure as long as the sun,
as long as the moon, through all generations.
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
And the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end.
Ps. 72:1-2, 5; Is. 9:6-7

Jesus Shall Reign (Enfield)

We Will Glorify

You Are My King (Amazing Love)

Psalm 28:7-11
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults,
and with my song I give thanks to him.
The Lord is the strength of his people;
he is the saving refuge of his anointed.
Oh, save your people and bless your heritage!
Be their shepherd and carry them forever.

Good Shepherd of My Soul

Jesus Shall Reign – Enfield

Isaac Watts wrote the words of this hymn based on Psalm 72. The original tune is by John Hatton. The additional text, music, & arrangement are by Ryan Foglesong. This Psalm and song encourage us to praise Jesus as our King.  He is a far better king than any earthly ruler has been or ever will be.

Jesus shall reign wherever the sun
Does its successive journeys run;
His kingdom spread from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.

CHORUS
He shall reign in glory,
Crowned with grace and might.
Bless His name and praise the sov’reign King.
He shall reign forever with His chosen bride,
And all the earth shall sing
That Jesus is the King!

People and realms of ev’ry tongue
Dwell on His love with sweetest song.
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on His name.

Let ev’ry creature rise and bring
His grateful honors to our King;
Angels descend with song again.
And earth repeat the loud “Amen!”

You can listen to the song on Spotify. It has also been added to our playlist.

I found the lead sheet here. For our congregation’s use, we will be skipping the instrumental interlude and key change.

You can download the album here.
