The New Hymn Project Lyrics

Amazing Grace

John Newton, David Coate ©2008

Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me 
I once was lost but now I am found was blind but now I see

Chorus

Amazing grace how can it be
I once was lost but now I'm found 'cause Jesus found me
Twas grace that taught my heart to fear and grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed

Chorus

When we've been there ten thousand years bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise than when we first begun

Chorus x2

Outro


All The Earth

David Coate ©2008

Come on lift your voice and raise it
Join with us and sing your praises
To the Lord to the Lord
All the earth

Come on sisters and brothers
We got to learn to love each other
And the Lord and the Lord
All the earth

Bridge

'Cause there is nothing that can separate us from the love of Jesus 
And there is nothing that should keep us from worshipping together

Chorus
All the earth (sing praises) all the earth (every nation)
All the earth (sing praises) all the earth (every nation)

Come on lift your hands and raise them
Come on join the celebration
To the Lord to the Lord
All the earth
It's not the time for hesitation
He gave His everything to save us
Praise the Lord praise the Lord 
All the earth


Be Thou My Vision

Mary Byrne, Eleanor Hull, David Coate ©2008

Be thou my vision O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me save that thou art
Thou my best thought, by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light

Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise,
Thou mine inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

Chorus
Be thou my vision be thou my vision
Heart of my own heart whatever befall
Still be my vision ruler of all x2

High King of heaven, my victory won,
May I reach heaven's joys, O bright heav'ns Son!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O ruler of all. 

Chorus x2


Freedom

David Coate ©2008

Chorus:
Freedom Freedom
In Christ I am set free
Freedom Freedom
Because of You I'm free indeed

He who has the Son has life
But he who doesn't lives in darkness
But God shines more than candlelight
He sets a blaze of freedom

Chorus

I was a prisoner of myself
Thinking only of me
But God had a different plan for my life
He set me free set me free

Chorus

Bridge:

Free from guilt free from shame
Free from the power of death and its sting
Free to live the way that's right
Through your power through your might

Chorus

 

My Jesus, I Love Thee

William Featherstone, Adoniram Gordon, David Coate ©2008

My Jesus I love Thee I know Thou art mine
For Thee all the follies of sin I resign
My gracious Redeemer my Savior art Thou
If ever I loved Thee my Jesus 'tis now

I love Thee because thou hast first loved me
And purchased my pardon on Calvary's tree
I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow
If ever I loved Thee my Jesus 'tis now

Chorus:
I love Thee my Savior and King
I love Thee more than anything

I'll love Thee in life I will love Thee in death
And praise Thee as long as Thou lendest me breath
And say when the death dew lies cold on my brow
If ever I loved Thee my Jesus 'tis now

Chorus

In mansions of glory and endless delight
I'll ever adore Thee in heaven so bright
I'll sing with the glittering crown on my brow
If ever I loved Thee my Jesus 'tis now


I Can Do All Things

David Coate ©2008

Chorus:

I can do all things I can do all things I can do all things
Through Christ who strengthens me

Whether or not I am hungry whether or not I am thirsty
I can rely on your strength to get me through
Whether or not I am hungry whether or not I am thirsty
I can do all things through you

Chorus

I have discovered the secret in every situation
I have found contentment in you
In good times and bad times my every need you provided
I can do all things through you

Chorus

Bridge: 
No matter where I go no matter what I face
You promise I won't be alone
Jesus you're my strength Jesus you're my shield
Defender, protector, my Lord

Chorus


Blessed Assurance

Fanny Crosby, Phoebe Knapp, arranged by David Coate ©2008

Blessed assurance Jesus is mine. O what a foretaste of glory divine
Heir of salvation purchase of God born of His Spirit washed in His blood

Chorus 
This is my story this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
This is my story this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long

Perfect submission perfect delight visions of rapture now burst on my sight
Angels descending bring from above echoes of mercy whispers of love

Chorus

Perfect submission all is at rest I in my Savior am happy and blest
Watching and waiting looking above filled with His goodness lost in His love

Chorus


Fairest Lord Jesus (You're Beautiful)

Munster Gesangbach, Sclesische Volkslieder, David Coate ©2008

You're beautiful you're beautiful you're beautiful to me 

Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all nature,
O thou of God and man the Son,
Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor,
thou, my soul's glory, joy, and crown.

Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands,
robed in the blooming garb of spring: 
Jesus is fairer Jesus is purer
who makes the woeful heart to sing.

You're beautiful you're beautiful you're beautiful to me

Fair is the sunshine, fairer still the moonlight 
and all the twinkling starry host: 
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
than all the angels heaven can boast

Beautiful Savior Lord of all the nations! 
Son of God and Son of Man 
Glory and honor praise adoration,
now and forevermore be thine

You're beautiful you're beautiful you're beautiful to me
You're fairest you're fairest you're fairest to me


The Lord's Prayer

Music by David Coate ©2008

Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Give us our daily bread and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors
And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever
And ever and ever

Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be thy name
