Track Name: The Lamb Has Overcome (feat. Matt McCloskey)
The Lamb has overcome
The Lamb has overcome
The battle’s done
And the victory is won
For the Lamb has overcome

No grave could hold him down
No grave could hold him down
Up from the ground,
“He is risen!” was the sound
No grave could hold him down

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Glory be unto his name

At God’s right hand is he
At God’s right hand is he
Our Perfect Plea,
How he lives to intercede!
At God’s right hand is he

The table now is spread
The table now is spread
This wine and bread
Broken body and blood shed
The table now is spread

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Glory be unto his name

The day is drawing near
The day is drawing near
He shall appear
And will wipe away each tear
The day is drawing near

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Glory be unto his name

The Lamb has overcome
The Lamb has overcome
The battle’s done
And the victory is won
For the Lamb has overcome

Track Name: Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken (feat. Paul Banks)
Glorious things of thee are spoken
Zion City of our God.
He whose word cannot be broken
Formed thee for his own abode:
On the Rock of Ages founded,
Who can shake thy sure repose?
With salvation’s walls surrounded,
Thou may’st smile at all thy foes.

See, the streams of living waters,
Springing from eternal love,
Well supply thy sons and daughters,
And all fear of want remove:
Who can faint while such a river,
Ever flows their thirst t’assuage?
Grace which like the Lord, the giver,
Never fails from age to age.

Blest inhabitants of Zion,
Washed in the Redeemer’s blood;
Jesus whom their souls rely on,
Makes them kings and priests to God:
‘Tis his love his people raises,
Over self to reign as kings,
And as priests his solemn praises
Each for a thank off’ring brings.

Saviour, if of Zion’s city,
I, through grace, a member am,
Let the world deride or pity,
I will glory in thy name:
Fading is the worldling’s pleasure,
All his boasted pomp and show;
Solid joys and lasting treasures
None but Zion’s children know.
Track Name: Comfort, Comfort, These My People (feat. City School Choir)
Comfort, comfort these my people,
Speak of peace, thus says our God.
Comfort these who sit in darkness
Groaning under sin's dread rod.
To my people I proclaim:
Pardon now in Jesus' name!
Tell them that their sins I cover,
That their warfare now is over.

Yes, our sins the Lord will pardon,
Blotting out each dark misdead.
All that well deserved His anger,
He no more will see nor heed
We who languished many a day
Under guilt, now washed away
We exchange our pining sadness
For His comfort, peace and gladness

Now the herald's voice is crying
In the desert far and near,
Calling us to true repentance
For the kingdom now is here.
O that warning cry obey!
O, prepare for God a way;
Let the valleys rise to meet Him
Let the hills bow down to greet Him.

Straight must be what long was crooked,
Make the roughest places plain;
Let your hearts be true and humble,
Ready for His holy reign.
Here the glory of the Lord
Stands so graciously revealed
And all people see the token
That God's word is never broken.
Track Name: When Christ's Appearing Was Made Known (feat. Stuart Baker and Paul Banks)
When Christ’s appearing was made known
King Herod trembled for his throne;
But He who offers heav’nly birth
Seeks not the kingdoms of this earth.

The eastern sages saw from far
And followed on His guiding star;
But light their way to light they trod,
And by their gifts confessed their God.

Within the Jordan’s sacred flood
The heav’nly lamb in meekness stood
That He of whom no sin was known,
Might cleanse his people from their own.

And Oh, what miracle divine,
When water reddened into wine!
He spoke the word and forth it flowed
In streams that nature ne’er bestowed.

For this, His glad epiphany
All glory unto Jesus be,
Whom with the Father we adore,
And Holy Ghost forevermore.
Track Name: Psalm 134 (feat. Stuart Baker)
Praise the Lord, all ye servants of the Lord
Who minister by night in the house of the Lord
Lift your hands in the sanctuary
Raise your voice in the sanctuary
May the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth bless you from Zion
Track Name: I Know that My Redeemer Lives (feat. Brett Allen)
I know that my Redeemer lives,
Glory, Hallelujah!
What comfort this sweet sentence gives,
Glory, Hallelujah!

Shout on, pray on, we’re gaining ground,
Glory Hallelujah!
The dead’s alive, and the lost is found,
Glory Hallelujah!

He lives, he lives who once was dead,
Glory, Hellelujah!
He lives, my everlasting head,
Glory, Hallelujah!


He lives to bless me with His love;
Glory Hallelujah!
He lives to plead for me above;
Glory Hallelujah!


He lives all glory to His Name;
Glory Hallelujah!
He lives my Jesus, still the same;
Glory Hallelujah!


He lives to crush the fiends of hell;
Glory Hallelujah!
He lives and doth within me dwell;
Glory Hallelujah!

Track Name: At the Name of Jesus (feat. Matt McCloskey)
At the name of Jesus
Every knee shall bow,
Every tongue confess Him
King of glory now;
’Tis the Father’s pleasure
We should call Him Lord,
Who from the beginning
Was the mighty Word.

Humbled for a season,
To receive a name
From the lips of sinners,
Unto whom He came,
Faithfully He bore it
Spotless to the last,
Brought it back victorious
When from death He passed;

Bore it up triumphant,
With its human light,
Through all ranks of creatures,
To the central height,
To the throne of Godhead,
to the Father’s breast;
Filled it with the glory
Of that perfect rest.

Christians, this Lord Jesus
Shall return again,
With His Father’s glory,
O'er the earth to reign;
For all wreaths of empire
Meet upon His brow,
And our hearts confess Him
King of glory now.
Track Name: Come, O Come, O Quickening Spirit (feat. Stuart Baker)
Come, Oh come, O quick’ning Sprit,
God before the dawn of time!
Fire our hearts with holy ardor,
Blessed comforter sublime!
Let your radiance fill our night
Turning darkness into light.

Only that which you desire
Be our object, with your hand
Lead our every thought and action,
Let the m be at Your command.
All our sinfulness erase
With the increase of Your grace.

Blessed Spirit still renewing
All who dwell upon the earth,
When the evil one assails us,
Help us prove our heav’nly birth;
Arm us with Your mighty sword
In the legions of the Lord.

Help us keep the faith forever,
Let not Satan, death, or shame
Draw us from you or deprive us
Of the honor of Your name.
When the foe would lure us hence
Be, O God, our sure defense.
Track Name: Brightest and Best of the Stars of the Morning (feat. Paul Banks, Matt McCloskey, Lauren Bruno, and Mary Hardister)
Hail the blest morn, see the great mediator
Down from the regions of glory descend.
Shepherds go worship the babe in the manger
Lo for His guard the bright angels attend

Brightest and best of the stars of the morning,
Dawn on our darkness and lend us your aid;
Star of the East, the horizon adorning,
Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid.

Cold on his cradle the dewdrops are shining,
Low lies his head with the beasts of the stall;
Angels adore him in slumber reclining,
Maker and Monarch, and Saviour of all.


Shall we then yield him, in costly devotion,
Odors of Edom, and off’rings divine,
Gems of the mountain, and pearls of the ocean,
Myrrh from the forest, and gold from the mine?


Vainly we offer each ample oblation,
Vainly with gifts would his favor secure;
Richer by far is the heart’s adoration,
Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor.

Track Name: Baptism Hymn (feat. Liz and Stuart Baker)
We bring you, Lord, our child,
Reminder of Your love,
To ask in faith and claim for him
Your promise free

By Grace forgiven, by Spirit renewed,
Set apart as a member of Christ;
Becoming dead to sin, yet alive in Christ!

Renouncing evil pow’rs,
And turning to Your grace,
Protect her from all worldly harm,
Still call him home!

By Grace forgiven, by Spirit renewed,
Set apart as a member of Christ;
Becoming dead to sin, yet alive in Christ
