Good And Gracious King – Sunday Songs

Good And Gracious King from CityAlight’s album Only A Holy God.
The lyrics:
1.
I approach the throne of glory
Nothing in my hands I bring
But the promise of acceptance
From a good and gracious King
2.
I will give to You my burden
As You give to me Your strength
Come and fill me with Your Spirit
As I sing to You this praise
Refrain.
You deserve the greater glory
Overcome, I lift my voice
To the King in need of nothing
Empty handed I rejoice
You deserve the greater glory
Overcome with joy I sing
By Your love I am accepted
You’re a good and gracious King
3.
O what grace that You would see me
As Your child and as Your friend
Safe, secure in You forever
I pour out my praise again
Refrain.
Bridge.
Holy, holy, Lord Almighty
Good and gracious
Good and gracious
Holy, holy, Lord Almighty
Good and gracious King
Repeat Bridge.
Refrain.

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

I Want To Know You – Sunday Songs

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
2.
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
Chorus.
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
3.
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
Chorus.
Bridge.
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.
Repeat chorus.

All My Ways Are Known To You – Sunday Songs

All My Ways Are Known To You is from CityAlight’s album Only A Holy God.
I like the lyrics, the tune, the tempo.

The lyrics:
In days of peace and days of rest
In times of loss and loneliness
Though rich or poor, Your word is true
That all my ways are known to You

No trial has come beyond Your hand
No step I walk beyond Your plan
The path is dark outside my view
Still all my ways are known to You

And oh what peace that I have found
Wherever I may be
For all my ways are known to You
Hallelujah, they are known to You!

I do not fear the final night
For death will be the door to life
You take my hand and lead me through
For all my ways are known to You

Open up my eyes so I may see
That You have made these ways for me
Open up my eyes so I may see
That You my God, will walk with me

Blessed Assurance by City Alight

Blessed Assurance is a track from City Alight’s (very, very) soon to be released second album Only A Holy God.
It’s not a ransacking of the lyrics of the older hymn, but an original composition.

Lyrics:

All my attempts to be satisfied
Were vain and empty
Until the moment you rescued me
And your love filled me

My soul sings
Now my soul sings

What blessed assurance
I’ve found in you
I’ve found in you
I won’t be shaken I will not be moved
How steadfast your strong hand
Is keeping me
Is keeping me
I won’t be shaken I will not be moved
Oh blessed assurance

No other love that I’ve ever known
Compares to you God
No other love that I’ve ever found
Has done what you’ve done

Ever my anchor
Ever my strength
Ever my portion
And all I need

Ever my healing
Ever my hope
Ever the truth that leads me home
That leads me home
