Thank You God For Saving Me – Sunday Songs

Thank You God For Saving Me was one of the songs we sang at the church we visited tonight.
It has some helpful sentiments, the lyrics are static thoughts rather than a flow, typical of Chris Tomlin.
Unusually for Tomlin the musical range seemed accessible and worked relatively well as a congregational song.

The lyrics:
1.
What can I give to You
What can I offer to a king
For all the love You’ve shown
For all Your mercy over me
Chorus:
I called Your name
You heard my cry
Out of the grave
And into life
My heart is Yours
My soul is free
Thank You God for saving me
2.
The rock of salvation
My hope is built on nothing less
Morning by morning
How great is Your faithfulness
Chorus.
Bridge.
You gave Your life upon the cross
You suffered once for all
You made a way
Jesus, in victory You rose
You made us all Your own
Now we are saved

This Is Amazing Grace – Sunday Songs

This is in the road-testing queue.
From Phil Wickham and friends.

Verse 1:
Who breaks the power of sin and darkness
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger
The King of Glory, the King above all kings
Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder
And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder
The King of Glory, the King above all kings
Chorus:
This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
Oh, Jesus, I sing for
All that You’ve done for me
Verse 2:
Who brings our chaos back into order
Who makes the orphan a son and daughter
The King of Glory, the King of Glory
Who rules the nations with truth and justice
Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance
The King of Glory, the King above all kings
Chorus:
Bridge:
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy, worthy, worthy
Oh
Chorus:
