Jesus, Strong And Kind by CityAlight featuring Colin Buchanan – Sunday Songs

How better to start Sunday Songs for 2020 that to feature a new song from CityAlight that features national treasure Colin Buchanan?
Jesus, Strong And Kind is a very simple, slow-paced song that features the faithful lyrics and (corporately) singable melody that is expected from these sources.

The lyrics:
1.
Jesus said
That if I thirst
I should come to him
No one else can satisfy
I should come to him
2.
Jesus said
If I am weak
I should come to him
No one else can be my strength
I should come to him
Refrain.
For the Lord is good and faithful
He will keep us day and night
We can always run to Jesus
Jesus, strong and kind
3.
Jesus said
That if I fear
I should come to him
No one else can be my shield
I should come to him
Refrain.
4.
Jesus said if I am lost
He will come to me
And he showed me on that cross
He will come to me
Refrain.

O Come In Humble Prayer – Sunday Songs

O Come In Humble Prayer is written by Colin Buchanan and is featured on EMU Music’s The Things Above album.

This lyric video says it runs for over 8:00 minutes, but the song really only goes for 4:30 or so.
I think it could be sung a little faster than this.

The lyrics:
1.
O come in humble prayer to God Almighty
Our perfect, glorious Sovereign Trinity
With rev’rence and with joyful adoration
Christ alone as our sufficiency
2.
O come let us confess ourselves unworthy
Turning with repentance and with shame
Own again corruption and omission
Know again forgiveness in his Name
Chorus
O come in humble prayer
Come in humble prayer
O come in humble prayer before our God
3.
O come to God with awe-inspired thanksgiving
Marvel at his mercies without end
Proclaiming Christ the saving King of Kindness
Generous and loving without end
4.
O cast your every care on God our Father
Pleading for a world awash with sin
Joy and mercy’s triumph through the gospel
Hearts forsaking all to follow him
