What Love My God – Sunday Songs

What Love My God is from CityAlight’s album Only A Holy God.

The lyrics:
1.
What love my God would bring you down to earth
What king would take a low and lonely birth
Yet to this dark and broken place you came
To sleep beneath the stars that you had made
2.
What love my God would send the Way of Life
To walk the road, rejected and despised
That you might know the weakness I possess
And be my rock of strength and righteousness
Refrain.
O Your love my God like a flood
As heaven opened up pouring out on us
O praise the King who came to the world
In his love like a mighty flood
3.
What love my God could hold you to the tree
To bear that overwhelming debt for me
The Son of heaven leaves the Father’s side
The Healer bleeds, the Life was made to die
Refrain.
4.
What love my God, so gracious and extreme
Was strong enough to come and fight for me
To go through hell and down into the grave
And raise me up to see you face to face
You raise me up to see you face to face
Refrain.
Repeat refrain.

Grace – Sunday Songs

A reflective meditation on the saving power and love of God.
From CityAlight’s album Only A Holy God.

The lyrics:
1.
Your grace that leads this sinner home
From death to life forever
And sings the song of righteousness
By blood and not by merit
2.
Your grace that reaches far and wide
To every tribe and nation
Has called my heart to enter in
The joy of Your salvation
Refrain.
By grace I am redeemed
By grace I am restored
And now I freely walk
Into the arms of Christ my Lord
3.
Your grace that I cannot explain
Not by my earthly wisdom
The prince of life, without a stain
Was traded for this sinner
Refrain.
By grace I am redeemed
By grace I am restored
And now I freely walk
Into the arms of Christ my Lord
4.
Let praise rise up and overflow
My song resound forever
For grace will see me welcomed home
To walk beside my Saviour
Refrain.
By grace I am redeemed
By grace I am restored
And now I freely walk
Into the arms of Christ my Lord

Christ Is Mine Forevermore – Sunday Songs

CityAlight’s Christ Is Mine Forevermore was one of the songs we sang worshipping at Salt Church Robina today.

The lyrics:
1.
Mine are days that God has numbered
I was made to walk with Him
Yet I look for worldly treasure
And forsake the King of kings
Chorus 1.
But mine is hope in my Redeemer
Though I fall, his love is sure
For Christ has paid for every failing
I am his forevermore
2.
Mine are tears in times of sorrow
Darkness not yet understood
Through the valley I must travel
Where I see no earthly good
Chorus 2.
But mine is peace that flows from heaven
And the strength in times of need
I know my pain will not be wasted
Christ completes his work in me
3.
Mine are days here as a stranger
Pilgrim on a narrow way
One with Christ I will encounter
Harm and hatred for his name
Chorus 3.
But mine is armour for this battle
Strong enough to last the war
And he has said he will deliver
Safely to the golden shore
Chorus 4.
And mine are keys to Zion city
Where beside the King I walk
For there my heart has found its treasure
Christ is mine forevermore
Bridge.
Come rejoice now, O my soul
For his love is my reward
Fear is gone and hope is sure
Christ is mine forevermore
Chorus 4.
And mine are keys to Zion city
Where beside the King I walk
For there my heart has found its treasure
Christ is mine forevermore
Christ is mine forevermore

Shepherd – Sunday Songs

Shepherd by CityAlight evokes some themes from Psalm 23 and other biblical sources.

The lyrics:
Verse 1.
Though I walk through the valley
And I can’t see the way
When the shadows surround me
I will not be afraid
For I know You are with me
You will always provide
Though the path may be lonely
You will stay by my side
I will rest my soul
I’ll trust in You alone
Chorus.
For the Lord my Shepherd
Leads me, leads me
And He is all I need
In the darkest valley
I know, I know
My Shepherd is all I need
Verse 2.
Lord I know that You seek me
When I’m trying to hide
And Your love it pursues me
All the days of my life
I will rest my soul
I’ll trust in You alone
Chorus.
Bridge.
I rest my soul
In You alone
You light my way
You lead me on

Saved My Soul – Sunday Songs

Saved My Soul by CityAlight.
Strong lyrics and melody, tempo increases nicely in the chorus.

The lyrics:
Chorus.
You my God have saved my soul
I am Yours forevermore
I won’t be moved of this I’m sure
You are my God and You saved my soul
1.
I was lost when you came for me
Held in chains by the enemy
But You broke them in victory
Now I’m free, I am free
2.
You’re my joy and You are my hope
I am saved by Your grace alone
I will sing of Your love for me
I am free, I am free
3.
Now I stand with the Kings of kings
He has paid for my every sin
And from now through eternity
I am free, I am free
4.
What once was dead is now alive
You gave to me the breath of life
You brought me up out from the grave
I’m bursting out with songs of praise

I Want To Know You from CityAlight’s album Only A Holy God.

The lyrics.
1.
I’ve tried in vain a thousand ways
My fears to quell, my hopes to raise
But what I need, Your word has said
Is ever, only, Jesus

You died, you live, you reign, you plead
There’s love in all your words and deeds
This weary heart finds all it needs
In ever, only, Jesus

I want to know you, Jesus my Lord
King of the Heavens, King of my soul
I trade my treasure and all my rewards
Jesus to know you, then know you more

Though some should curse me for your name
I have no fear, I have no shame
You stand with me for all my days
My ever, only, Jesus

Like wave after wave on the ocean
Like all of the sand on the shore
Your beauty and glory are endless
O Jesus I must know you more
Repeat bridge.
Chorus.
