Jesus Is Alive – Sunday Songs

Jesus Is Alive is the final song from CityAlight’s recently released five track EP Yet Not I that I’m posting here.
It’s sort of mid-tempo, with musical hooks that you feel comfortable with pretty quickly.
A song of those who are being gathered celebrating their gathering together.

1.
There is now a hope that lasts beyond our days
For the one that once was buried lives again
Now the tomb is bare and empty and the stone is rolled away
Praise the Risen one who overcame the grave
2.
All you broken hearted, all you worn and weak
Come find living water, everlasting streams
To the wandering spirit, lost and searching wanting something more
Find the risen king who overcomes the world
Refrain.
Let there be dancing in the darkness
And let our song break through the night
Lift your voice and sing that Christ is King
For Jesus is Alive
3.
No more condemnation, no more doubt and fear
For our sin and shame they have no power here
In his resurrection, perfect love has set the captives free
Praise the risen king who stands in victory
Refrain.
Bridge.
Hallelujah, death is undone
Hallelujah, Jesus has won
Hallelujah, we overcome
Oh in Jesus, Oh in Jesus
Refrain.

Just As I Am by Matt Maher Acoustic

Matt Maher sings and plays his song Just As I Am as one of a series of renditions of his songs at the Steinway Factory.

The lyrics:

In shackles and chains
I came to your door
And fell on the floor
Of mercy
Guilty I stood, guilty I was
I couldn’t hide my shame

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in
I’ll never be the same again
My life held in your hands
Just as I am

You saved a place
Amazing grace
You came all the way
To meet me

Carried me home
With a ring and a robe
Threw your loving arms around me

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in
I’ll never be the same again
My life held in your hands

Just as I am
Without one plea
But that your blood was shed for me
And that you bid me come to thee
Oh Lamb of God I come, I come

Just as I am
Without one plea
But that your blood was shed for me
And that you bid me come to thee
Oh Lamb of God I come, I come

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in
I’ll never be the same again
My life held in your hands

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in
I will never be the same again
My life held in your hands

Oh my life is held in your hands
Just as I am
Just as I am

The Goodness Of Jesus – Sunday Songs

The Goodness Of Jesus is another song from CityAlight’s recently released EP Yet Not I.
It is another example of their capacity to produce singable songs that have lyrics that are worth singing.
Fresh, yet familiar.

The lyrics:
1.
Come you weary heart now to Jesus
Come you anxious soul now and see
There is perfect love and comfort in your tears
Rest here in His wondrous peace
Refrain.
Oh the goodness, the goodness of Jesus
Satisfied He is all that I need
May it be, come what may, that I rest all my days
In the goodness of Jesus

2.
Come find what this world cannot offer
Come and find your joy here complete
Taste the living water, never thirst again,
Rest here in His wondrous peace
Refrain.
3.
Come and find your hope now in Jesus
He is all he said he would be
Grace is overflowing from the Saviour’s heart
Rest here in His wondrous peace
Refrain.
Repeat refrain.
