Magnificent, Marvelous, Matchless Love – Sunday Songs

New songs from Getty Music feature on an EP called The Northcoast Sessions.
Magnificent, Marvellous, Matchless Love is a singable song of praise.

The lyrics:
1.
Magnificent, marvelous, matchless love; too vast and astounding to tell
Forever existing in worlds above, now offered and given to all.
Oh, fountain of beauty eternal; the Father, the Spirit, the Son.
Sufficient and endlessly generous, magnificent, marvelous, matchless love.
2.
Creation is brimming with thankfulness, the mountains, exultant they stand;
The seasons rejoice in Your faithfulness, all life is sustained by Your hand.
You crown every meadow with color; You paint every shade in the sky;
Each day the dawn wakes as an encore of magnificent, marvelous, matchless love.
Chorus
How great, how sure; His love endures forevermore.
Magnificent, marvelous, matchless love.
3.
What grace, that You entered our brokenness; You came in the fullness of time
How far we had fallen from righteousness, but not from the mercies of Christ.
Your cross is our door to redemption; Your death is our fullness of life.
That day, how forgiveness flowed as a flood: magnificent, marvelous, matchless love.
Chorus
How great, how sure; His love endures forevermore.
Magnificent, marvelous, matchless love.
4.
United in Your resurrection, You lift us to infinite heights
Could anything sever or take us from magnificent, marvelous, matchless love
Chorus
How great, how sure; His love endures forevermore.
Magnificent, marvelous, matchless love.

Words and Music: Matt Papa, Aaron Keyes, Luke Brown, and Keith and Kristyn Getty

I Will Wait For You (Psalm 130) – Sunday Songs

This week has seen the release of an EP from Keith and Kristyn Getty (North Coast Sessions) and a full album from Stuart Townend (Courage).
I Will Wait For You (Psalm 130) features on both.
Jordan Kauflin and Matt Merker assisted with the composition.
The song begins with words set to the tune Ballerma and then the original song begins.

The lyrics:
1.
Out of the depths I cry to You
In darkest places I will call
Incline Your ear to me anew
And hear my cry for mercy, Lord
2.
Were You to count my sinful ways
How could I come before Your throne
Yet full forgiveness meets my gaze
I stand redeemed by grace alone
Chorus
I will wait for You
I will wait for You
On Your word, I will rely
I will wait for You
Surely wait for You
Till my soul is satisfied
3.
So put your hope in God alone
Take courage in His power to save
Completely and forever won
By Christ emerging from the grave
Chorus
4.
Now He has come to make a way
And God Himself has paid the price
That all who trust in Him today
Find healing in His sacrifice
Chorus
I will wait for You
I will wait for You
Through the storm and through the night
I will wait for You
Surely wait for You
For Your love is my delight

Words and Music: Jordan Kauflin, Matt Merker, Keith Getty, and Stuart Townend.

God The Uncreated One (King Forevermore) – Sunday Songs

God The Uncreated One is a modern hymn style song by Pete James and Aaron Keyes, popularly recorded by Getty Music.

The lyrics:
1.
God the Uncreated One
The author of salvation
Who wrote the laws of space and time
And fashioned worlds to His design
The one whom angel hosts revere
Hung the stars like chandeliers
Numbered every grain of sand
Knows the heart of every man
He is King forever
He is King forever
He is King forevermore
2.
God our fortress and our strength
The rock on which we can depend
Matchless in His majesty
His power and authority
Unshaken by the schemes of man
Never-changing, Great I Am
Kingdoms rise and kingdoms fall
He is faithful through it all
Crown Him King forever
Crown Him King forever
Crown Him King forevermore
3.
Mighty God in mortal flesh
Forsaken by a traitor’s kiss
The curse of sin and centuries
Did pierce the lowly Prince of Peace
Lifted high, the sinless man
Crucified, the spotless Lamb
Buried by the sons of man
Rescued by the Father’s hand
To reign as King forever
Reign as King forever
Reign as King forevermore
4.
King Eternal, God of Grace
We crown You with the highest praise
Heaven shouts and saints adore
You’re Holy, Holy, Holy Lord!
What joy in everlasting life
All is love and faith is sight
Justice rolls and praises rise
At the name of Jesus Christ
King of Kings forever
King of Kings forever
King of Kings forevermore

Jesus Shall Reign – 2018 Getty Music Global Hymn Sing

I signed up for the 2018 Getty Music Global Hymn Sing, this year featuring Jesus Shall Reign plus a new Getty composed chorus (surprise).
The chorus is singable, and the lyrics are sympathetic to the original hymn.
(Set to the tune DUKE STREET, rather than the tune WARRINGTON which I am more used to singing it to).

Anyway, anything that results in Christians singing classic hymn lyrics praising the Jesus, the name above all names is okay by me.
Here’s a lyric video.
