Exalted – Sunday Songs

Exalted, from Trevor Hodge’s EP Once For All.

The lyrics:
1
Christ, by nature God
Did not pursue this gain
But in the form of man
A servant He became
Obedient till the end
To death upon a cross
Chorus
Exalted to the highest place
Bestowed the name above all names
That every knee in heaven and earth
Would humbly fall, would humbly fall
Come every tongue – confess, adore
That Jesus Christ alone is Lord
To God the Father be all praise
Forever more, forever more
2
If any hope is our
Or comfort from His love
Then make this joy complete
Of heart and spirit be one
Uphold each others needs
Have the mind of Christ the Son
Chorus
Bridge
O Come rejoice
Forever more
Lift up your voice
Forever more
Declare His praise
Forever more
To God be praise
Forever more
3
With Christ at work in you
With fear and trembling strive
To will and walk His ways
To live for His delight
In the darkness shine like stars
Holding out the word of Christ
Chorus
Bridge

Better By Far – Sunday Songs

Better By Far, from Trevor Hodge’s EP Once For All.

The lyrics:
1
All that once was profit I’ll count as naught
Knowing You is better by far
View as worthless now all my heart once sought
Knowing You is better by far
These I’ll cast away so that I may gain
And be found in You, in Your love remain
Dressed in righteousness come from God, by faith
Knowing You is better by far
Knowing You is better by far
2
I will leave behind every ease and right
Knowing You is better by far
And will press ahead to receive the prize
Knowing You is better by far
With my eyes above, not to earthly things
With an eager hope of what heaven brings
In the sovereign power of my Saving King
Knowing You is better by far
Knowing You is better by far
Bridge
To live is Christ
To die is gain
So come rejoice in Christ our Saviour
To live is Christ
To die is gain
So come rejoice
3
Grant me certain hope in a future sure
Knowing You is better by far
And for trials today, courage to endure
Knowing You is better by far
If my life’s poured out like an offering
I will still rejoice, of my Saviour, sing
Till I dwell with You in eternity
Knowing You is better by far
Knowing You is better by far
Tag
Let my only boast be in You my King
Knowing You is better by far
