Hymn Lyrics for 9/6/2020

This I Believe

Our Father everlasting
The all-creating One
God Almighty
Through Your Holy Spirit
Conceiving Christ the Son
Jesus our Savior

(Refrain) I believe in God our Father
I believe in Christ the Son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God is three in One
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
For I believe in the Name of Jesus

Our judge and our defender
Suffered and crucified
Forgiveness is in You
Descended into darkness
You rose in glorious life
Forever seated high (Refrain + Bridge)

(Bridge) I believe in You
I believe You rose again
I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord (Repeat)

I believe in life eternal
I believe in the virgin birth
I believe in the saints' communion
And in Your holy Church
I believe in the resurrection
When Jesus comes again
For I believe in the Name of Jesus 
For I believe in the Name of Jesus

Mighty to Save

Everyone needs compassion
A love that's never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Saviour
The hope of nations
 
(Refrain) Saviour, He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever, Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave
 
So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender (Refrain)
 
(Bridge)Shine your light and
Let the whole world see
We're singing for the glory
Of the risen King—Jesus
Shine your light and
Let the whole world see
We're singing for the glory
Of the risen King (Refrain)
