He Shall Reign Forevermore by Matt Maher

 

“HE SHALL REIGN FOREVERMORE” (lyrics)

In the bleak mid-winter, all creation groans
For a world in darkness, frozen like a stone
Light is breaking, in a stable
For a throne

And He shall reign forevermore, forevermore
And He shall reign forevermore, forevermore
Unto us a child is born
The King of kings and Lord of lords
And He shall reign forevermore, forevermore

If I were a wise man, I would travel far
And if I were a shepherd, I would do my part
But poor as I am
I will give to Him my heart

And He shall reign forevermore, forevermore
And He shall reign forevermore, forevermore
Unto us a child is born
The King of kings and Lord of lords
And He shall reign forevermore, forevermore

Here within a manger lies
The One who made the starry skies
This baby born for sacrifice
Christ, the Messiah
Into our hopes, into our fears
The Savior of the world appears
The promise of eternal years
Christ, the Messiah

He shall reign forevermore, forevermore
He shall reign forevermore, forevermore
He shall reign forevermore, forevermore

And He shall reign forevermore, forevermore
Unto us a child is born
The King of kings and Lord of lords
And He shall reign forevermore, forevermore

God Of Calvary by Matt Maher

 

 

“GOD OF CALVARY” (lyrics)

Verse 1:
On the hill of Calvary, the Light of all the world
With the world on His shoulders
The weight of all our shame, on Him who knew no sin
A Holy surrender
The sky went dark, the Angels wept
The Father looked away
The final breath, He bowed His head
The lamb of God was slain

Chorus 1:
By His wounds I am set free
By His blood I’ve been redeemed
The great divide He crossed for me
Oh, praise the God of Calvary

Verse 2:
On the hill of Calvary, into the Father’s hands
A Holy surrender
A borrowed tomb, His mother wept
And there His body lay
The stone was moved, He conquered death
And rose from the grave

Chorus 1:
By His wounds I am set free
By His blood I’ve been redeemed
The great divide He crossed for me
Oh, praise the God of Calvary
Bridge:
And if I never, never
Lose sight of this place
I will never, never
Lose sight of Your grace
The Cross is all, all I need to see
Oh, praise the God of Calvary
And if I never, never
Lose sight of this place
I will never, never
Lose sight of Your grace
The Cross is all, all I need to see
Oh, praise the God of Calvary

Chorus 2:
By Your wounds I am set free
By Your blood I’ve been redeemed
The great divide You crossed for me
Oh, praise the God of Calvary
Your Cross is all, all I need to see
Oh, praise the God of Calvary

What A Friend by Matt Maher

 

 

“WHAT A FRIEND” (lyrics)

Everybody has trials and temptations
Everybody knows heart break, isolationBut we can lay our burdens down
Lay our burdens down

What a friend we have in Jesus
East to west my sins are gone
I see grace on every horizon
And forever and ever His heart is my home

Everybody has fears, everybody got worries
Everybody knows sorrow, devastation

But we can lay our burdens down
Lay our burdens down

What a friend we have in Jesus
East to west my sins are gone
I see grace on every horizon
And forever and ever His heart is my home

No more betrayal, for He is faithful
He fills me up and my cup runneth over
No more betrayal, for He is faithful
How He has proven it over and over
No more betrayal, for He is faithful
He fills me up and my cup runneth over
No more betrayal, for He is faithful
How He has proven it over and over
Over and over…

What a friend we have in Jesus
East to west my sins are gone
I see grace on every horizon
And forever and ever His heart is my home
What a friend we have in Jesus
East to west my sins are gone
I see grace on every horizon
And forever and ever His heart is my home
Forever and ever His heart is my home

You are my joy, You are my song
You are the well, the One I’m drawing from
You are my refuge, my whole life long
Where else would I go?

Surely my God is the strength of my soul
Your love defends me, Your love defends me
And when I feel like I’m all alone
Your love defends me, Your love defends me

I will remember, You’re with me in this fight
Although the battle, it rages on
The war is already won
I know the war is already won

You’re my portion

Unwavering by Matt Maher

 

“Unwavering” (lyrics)

Verse 1:

Blessed are the poor
The kingdom is theirs
Alive in the promise
To be dead to the world
Blessed are the meek
In honor of your Father
The Word at your right hand
The Spirit of truth

Chorus:

Unwavering is your voice
Unwavering is your hand
Unwavering is the heart
That bled for the sins of men
Unwavering is your will
Unwavering is your plan
The fount of salvation
On which we will stand

Blessed are the righteous
On bended knee
Found in this freedom
Committed to you
Blessed are those who see
The heights of glory
Found in the valley
And suffering for you

(Repeat Chorus)

Send us out to be your hands and feet
Send us out to be your hands and feet
Send us out to be your hands and feet

(Repeat Chorus)

The fount of salvation
On which we will stand

Send us out to be your hands and feet
Send us out to be your hands and feet
Send us out to be your hands and feet
Send us out to be your hands and feet
Send us out to be your hands and feet
Send us out to be your hands and feet

A Future Not My Own by Matt Maher

 

“A Future Not My Own” (lyrics)

God slow me down
I’m like a river running
Pressed to the ground
I feel it overcoming
I’m on my knees
I’m incomplete

This is a great unknown
Love is a long and narrow road
Come chase this heart of stone
I need a future not my own

Your spirit groans
Where all my words are ceasing
Can’t do this alone
Lord help my unbelieving
My poverty
I’m incomplete

This is a great unknown
Love is a long and narrow road
Come chase this heart of stone
I need a future not my own
Not my own

We see the start but You see the end
We see in part but Your love sees everything
We plant the seeds but You make them grow
We’re building a house, You’re building a home

This is the great unknown
Love is a long and narrow road
Come chase this heart of stone
I need a future not my own

This world is not my home
I still have miles and miles to go
Come break this heart of stone
I need a future not my ow
