My Saviour’s Love (What Tongue Could Tell) – Sunday Songs

I’ve been looking forward to the release of the colloborative album of Matt Boswell and Matt Papa.
The album, His Mercy Is More contains songs that both of them have previously released along with some new material.
Released by Getty Music, it’s notable in that previous releases by that label have predominantly featured the work of Keith and Kristyn Getty, working with others.
This time, though both Gettys are involved, Boswell and Papa take the lead.
Their previous releases have moved more and more toward songs that are truly singable in corporate assembly, and have tremendous lyrics.

Here’s My Saviour’s Love (What Tongue Could Tell)

1
What tongue could tell my Savior’s love
What song of angels could describe
Could endless praises be enough
To echo full His sacrifice
How worthy is the Lamb of God
Beyond all might or skill of pen
Still we confess and strain towards
Such mystery and magnificence
Chorus
My Savior’s love
My Savior’s love
What could compare
What tongue could tell my Savior’s love
2
What tune could carry on its wings
The beauty of that final breath
What words dare paint the awesome scene
When God stood in the stead of man
When Jesus Christ the radiant One
Took on the shadows of our hate
Then rose again just as the sun
With light and power in fullest grace
Chorus
3
And when in death this tongue is stilled
My song of life has reached the end
Though as a flower I may wilt
This everlasting truth will stand
No death or life could separate
Me from the love of Christ my Lord
This hope is sure from age to age
My song will be forevermore.
Chorus

How Good Is It To Sing – Sunday Songs

How Good Is It To Sing is based on Psalm 147 and is from Stuart Townend’s album Courage.

The lyrics:
1.
How good it is to sing,
To bring our praise to Him
Whose love and mercy knows no end.
He brings the sun and rain,
He calls each star by name,
The universe resounds with praise.
Chorus.
O shout for joy to God and sing a new song,
Extol the Lord of life for His provision,
And He delights in those who love and fear Him,
All those who put their hope in God.
2.
He gathers families,
Orphans and refugees,
And binds the wounds of those who mourn;
The humble lifted high,
The proud He casts aside,
His justice faithful as the dawn.
Chorus.
3.
What friend or foe can last
Before His icy blast?
The winds and waves obey His voice.
Yet mercy will prevail,
His love will reconcile
The nations of the earth to Him.
Chorus.
Repeat Chorus.

Whate’er My God Ordains Is Right – Sunday Songs

Whate’er My God Ordains Is Right is Matt Merker’s (with help from Keith Getty) retuning of words originally written by Samuel Rodigast, translated by Catherine Winkworth.

Whate’er my God ordains is right,
His holy will abideth;
I will be still whate’er He does,
And follow where He guideth.
He is my God, though dark my road;
He holds me that I shall not fall;
And so to Him I leave it all,
And so to Him I leave it all.

Whate’er my God ordains is right,
He never will deceive me;
He leads me by the proper path,
I know He will not leave me.
I take, content, what He has sent;
His hand can turn my griefs away;
And patiently I wait His day,
And patiently I wait His day.

Whate’er my God ordains is right,
Though now this cup in drinking
May bitter seem to my faint heart,
I take it all, unshrinking.
My God is true, each morn anew
Sweet comfort yet shall fill my heart;
And pain and sorrow shall depart,
And pain and sorrow shall depart.

Whate’er my God ordains is right,
Here shall my stand be taken;
Though sorrow, need, or death be mine,
Yet I am not forsaken.
My Father’s care is round me there;
He holds me that I shall not fall;
And so to Him I leave it all,
And so to Him I leave it all.


Words: Samuel Rodigast (1675), tr. Catherine Winkworth (1829-1878)
