To you all flesh shall come.            Psalm 65:1-8 HYMNS AND PRAISE SONGS “Crown Him with Many Crowns” Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne; Hark! how the heav’nly anthem drowns all music but its own: Awake my soul, and sing of Him who died for thee, And hail Him as thy matchless King through all eternity. Crown Him the Lord of love; behold His hands and side, Rich wounds, yet visible above in beauty glorified: No angel in the sky can fully bear that sight, But downwards bends His burning eye at mysteries so bright. Crown Him the Lord of peace; Whose pow’r a scepter sways From pole to pole, that wars may cease,  Absorbed in prayer and praise His reign shall know no end; and round His pierced feet Fair flow’rs of paradise extend their fragrance ever sweet. Crown Him the Lord of years, the Potentate of time; Creator of the rolling speheres, ineffably sublime. All hail, Redeemer hail! For thou hast died for me. Thy praise shall never, never fail throughout eternity. Thy praise shall never, never fail throughout eternity. “Shout to the Lord” My Jesus, my Saviour, Lord, there is none like You; All of my days I want to praise the wonders of Your mighty love. My comfort, my shelter, tower of refuge and strength; Let ev’ry breath, all that I am, never cease to worship You. Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing. Power and majesty, praise to the King. Mountains bow down and the seas will roar At the sound of Your name. I sing for joy at the work of your hands, Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand, Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.  (Repeat All) Nothing compares to the promise I have in You. Nothing compares to the promise I have in You. “The Heart of Worship” King of endless worth. No one could express how much You deserve. Though I’m weak and poor, all I have is Yours, Every single breath. I’ll bring You more than a song, for a song in itself Is not what You have required. You search much deeper within, through the way things appear, You’re looking into my heart. Chorus:  I’m coming back to the heart of worship, and it’s all about You. All about You Jesus. I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it When it’s all about You, it’s all about You Jesus.

Teach me to love Thee as Thine angels love, One holy passion filling all my frame; The baptism of the heav’n descended Dove- My heart an altar, and Thy love the flame.

Anyone   who   does   not   have   the   Spirit   of   Christ   does   not   belong   to   him. 10 But   if   Christ   is   in you,   though   the   body   is   dead   because   of   sin,   the   Spirit   is   life   because   of   righteousness. 11 If the   Spirit   of   him   who   raised   Jesus   from   the   dead   dwells   in   you,   he   who   raised   Christ   from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit that dwells in you.
