2003 Behold Your God

BEHOLD YOUR GOD

Words and Music by Jonathan Bernd
Arranged by Jonathan Bernd

 

Look up He’s coming, coming with the clouds,

And every eye shall see Him then,

Every tribe and tongue confess,

And bow before His name,

Trumpet calls announce the Son of Man.

 

The Lord will pour His Spirit out on Zion,

And they shall mourn the Pierced One,

Messiah, Son of David,

Has defeated death and sin,

The Lamb now sits ascended on the throne.

 

Chorus:

Behold your God and lift Him high,

Let your praises reach the sky,

That all the nations of the world,

Might come to know His grace,

 Might worship in His presence,

And bow before His face.

 

And with a shout, He’ll gather up His people,

And give us garments pure and white,

Together with the angels,

We will lift our voice in praise,

Our place assured forever in His light.

 

Chorus (3x)

 

Behold Your God!

PSALM 139

Words and music by Jeff Millenson
Arranged by Jeff and Amy Millenson

 

O Lord, You have searched me and known me,

You know my sitting and my rising,

O Lord, You know all my thoughts,

Even though I walk far away from you.

 

Behind and before You’ve enclosed me,

And laid Your hand upon me,

Such knowledge of Thee is too wonderful for me,

It is too high, I cannot attain it.

 

Chorus:

Search me, O God, and know my heart,

Try me and know my anxious thoughts,

See if there be any wicked way in me,

And lead me in the everlasting way.

 

Where could I god from Your Spirit?

Or where could I flee from Your presence?

In the heavens above could I hade from Your love,

Or in the depths of hell below me?

 

Surely the darkness will hide me,

The night will be heavy all around,

But the day and the night are both bright in Your sight,

And alike are they to Thee.

 

Chorus

 

You formed my inmost parts,

You made me in my mother’s womb,

I will give thanks to thee – in my own soul I see,

The wonders of Your works,

How precious are Your thoughts to me,

O Lord, how vast is their sum,

Like grains of sand they slip through my hand,

When I awake, I am still with thee!

THE GOD OF ABRAHAM

Words and music by Jeff Millenson
Arranged by Jeff Millenson

 

It was the Lord who summoned Abram

to a land he did not know,

And said, “To you and your descendants

my favor I will show,

I’ll be your strength, I’ll be your shield,

I’ll be the one who walks beside you,

And through you I will bless,

All the fam’lies of the earth!”

 

Chorus:

The God of Abraham,

He is a living God,

He is a saving God,

And I will praise Him!

For He has given me,

Abundant righteousness,

And He is faithful to His word!

 

“Take now your only son, your Isaac,

the one I’ve given thee,

And go ascend to Mount Moriah,

and offer him to Me.”

And so by faith he went forth,

Trusting in the great Provider,

And through the One who gave the lamb,

We share the faith of Abraham!

JONAH

(Jonah 2:2-7)
Words by Noah Cohen / Music by Robert Rose
Arranged by Noah Cohen and Robert Rose

 

You hurled me into the deep,

Into the heart of the seas,

All your waves and breakers swept over me,

I’ve been banished from your sight,

Yet I will look again to your temple,

The waters engulfed me and the deep surrounded me.

 

Chorus:

From the depths of the grave I called for help,

(and you heard my cry)

From the depths of the grave I called for help,

(and you listened to my voice)

 

I sank to the root of the mountains,

The earth barred me in,

But you brought my life up from the pit, O Lord.

 

Chorus

 

I sank to the root of the mountains,

The earth barred me in,

But you brought my life from the pit, O Lord.

 

My life was ebbing away, I remembered you;

My prayer rose to you,

I called you from the grave and you heard my cry,

And you heard my cry.

 

Chorus

 

From the depths of the grave I called for help,

(and you heard my cry),

From the depths of the grave,

(you answered my prayer)

Words and music by Jeff Millenson
Arranged by Douglas Hanks and Jeff Millenson

 

May the Lord our God be with us,

As He was with our fathers,

May He never leave us nor forsake us,

May the Lord our God be near.

 

May we follow His commandments,

May they be our hearts’ delight,

may we walk in all His ways,

Even now and all of our days,

Serving him in love and fear.

 

So that all the people of the earth,

May know that you are the Lord,

There is no other God,

You alone are the Lord.

 

Let our hearts be undivided,

Wholly given to the Lord,

May the words you hear us say,

Come before you night and day,

Hear your people Israel.

 

Blessed be the Lord forever,

He who gives His people rest,

Everything He promised us,

Every word has come to pass,

For His love shall never fail.

 

And the people of the earth,

Will know that you are the Lord,

There is no other God,

You alone are the Lord.

 

May the Lord our God be with us,

As He was with our fathers,

May He never leave us nor forsake us,

May the Lord our God be near.

FORGET ME NOT

(Isaiah 43; Psalm 23)
Words and Music by Hannah Lentz

 

Do not forget me, O my children, says your God,

Do not forget me, O my children, says your God,

When you pass through the waters I will be with you,

When you pass through the rivers they will not sweep over you,

When you walk through the fire you will not be burned,

The flame will not set you ablaze.

 

Do not forget me, O my children, says your God,

Do not forget me, O my children, says your God,

Fear not for I have redeemed you,

And I have called you and you are mine.

 

Can you not feel me? Do you not know me?

Oh, won’t you understand that I am in your darkest hour,

Can you not feel me? Do you not know me?

Oh, won’t you understand that I am in your darkest hour.

 

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

 

For I am the Lord your God,

The One of Israel, your Savior,

Can you not feel me? Do you not know me?

Oh, won’t you understand that I am in your darkest hour.

 

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

 

Even though I walk through the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil for you are with me,

Your rod and your staff they comfort me,

Do not for me, O my children, says your God,

Do not forget me, O my children, says your God.
