Who will roll away the stone? Early in the morning, the sun already risen Three women came bearing spices, the Lord's body to anoint Standing outside the tomb, they asked each other saying "Who will roll away the stone?" Looking up they realized, the stone had been removed And to their amazement, a young man sat before them "Do not be amazed," he said, "for Jesus the Nazarene He who has been crucified, here you will not find He has risen from the grave" early on the first day You'll find him on the road You'll find him at your table "He has risen from the dead" (early on the first day)

Come thou fount of every blessing Come Thou fount of every blessing Tune my heart to sing Thy grace; Streams of mercy, never ceasing, Call for songs of loudest praise Teach me some melodious sonnet, Sung by flaming tongues above. Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it, Mount of God's unchanging love. Here I raise my Ebenezer; Hither by Thy help I'm come; And I hope, by Thy good pleasure, Safely to arrive at home. Jesus sought me when a stranger, Wandering from the fold of God; He, to rescue me from danger, Interposed His precious blood. O to grace how great a debtor Daily I'm constrained to be! Let that grace now like a fetter, Bind my wandering heart to Thee. Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, Prone to leave the God I love; Here's my heart, O take and seal it, Seal it for Thy courts above.

Every ditch, every valley Isaiah 40 A voice says “Cry out, all men are like grass And their time of glory soon shall pass But the word of God it will never die Surely it will stand for eternity” Every ditch and valley shall be raised up Every hill and mountain be made low Every rugged place will be made flat Everybody shall see the glory of the LORD You who bring good news raise your voice and shout! Do not be afraid to speak the name of God The hard days are gone, the debt has been paid, and the time has come to walk the righteous way

How sweet and awesome How sweet and awesome is the place With Christ within the doors, While everlasting love displays The choicest of her stores! While all our hearts and all our songs Join to admire the feast, Each of us cry, with thankful tongues, “Lord, why was I a guest? Why was I made to hear Thy voice, And enter while there’s room, When thousands make a wretched choice, And rather starve than come?” ’Twas the same love that spread the feast That sweetly drew us in; Else we had still refused to taste, And perished in our sin.

Following No other man could still the storm Seething, surging settling down No other God could step onboard With eyes to sleep and lungs to drown. Safer to face the sea’s cold embrace than him. A carpenter told me where to fish But gave me a catch I could not hold Shaking I knelt in the sinking boat And left heaps of fish on the beach unsold. I’ve come on the run, but what have I done To follow? Your burdens are light But your blessings are heavy Almost too weighty to bear There’s a hook in this meal To receive is to follow And you won’t always say where What fool would dare follow you? Hands that once healed are now spread wide Tide-walking feet now fixed as one The Lord of the sea like a fish hangs dried Stroked by the lash, the taunts, the sun. Broken to feed a much deeper need than we knew. What do I have that is not Yours? Curses and thanks on borrowed breath, Rowing away with borrowed oars, Not even alone in lonely death. A net from the deep is rising beneath me now.

Resting place Psalm 61 O my God hear my cry Listen to my prayer I call to you from afar I call as my heart grows faint I call as my heart grows faint You have heard each word I say Lord you have heard my vows Lead me to a higher place, then I will ever sing your praise Then I will ever sing your praise Lord my enemies surround They taunt me night and day There is no peace for me at all Lord bring me to a resting place Lord bring me to a resting place

Of the Father’s love begotten Of the Father's love begotten, ere the world began to be, He is Alpha and Omega, He the source, the ending He, Of the things that are, that have been, And that future years shall see, evermore and evermore! O that birth forever blessèd, when the virgin, full of grace, By the Holy Ghost conceiving, bare the Savior of our race; And the Babe, the world's Redeemer, First revealed His sacred face, evermore and evermore! O ye heights of heaven adore Him; angel hosts, His praises sing; Powers, dominions, bow before Him, and extol our God and King! Let no tongue on earth be silent, Every voice in concert sing, evermore and evermore! Christ, to Thee with God the Father, and, O Holy Ghost, to Thee, Hymn and chant with high thanksgiving, and unwearied praises be: Honor, glory, and dominion, And eternal victory, evermore and evermore!

Heaven Heaven knows your tomorrows Heaven holds all your hope Heaven sees the grief and sorrow Burning in your heart Heaven knows when you’re weary Heaven knows when you’re lost Heaven’s coming for to find you To find you at all cost Heaven is drawing near with force that none can stand It’s blowing through like a hurricane It’s drifting in like sand It is sadness for the powerful Consolation to the weak Heaven sets free the captives Gives those silenced voice to speak Heaven has a hallelujah Made for you and you alone Do not rest until it leads you home Heaven is like a banquet For all to come and feast You must not fly away to find it It’s closer than you think But you must be like a child With open hands you must come Following the father’s words Walking with the son Heaven has a hallelujah Made for you and you alone Do not rest until it leads you home Do not rest until it leads you home

May the mind of Christ, my Savior May the mind of Christ, my Savior, Live in me from day to day, By His love and power controlling All I do and say. May the Word of God dwell richly In my heart from hour to hour, So that all may see I triumph Only through His power. May the peace of God, my Father, Rule my life in everything. That I may be calm to comfort Sick and sorrowing. May His beauty rest upon me As I seek the lost to win And may they forget the channel Seeing only Him

River Psalm 46 When the strong winds blow And the waters rise When the mountains crumble at our feet As the earth gives way We shall not fear For the help of the lord is near His promises shall never be unmade Though we wait we do not wait in vain There is a river whose streams flow down There is a city that will stay God will help her at the break of day Though nations war Though kingdoms fall If He lifts his voice the whole earth would melt He will break their guns He will stop our bombs He will bring peace and send the soldiers home
11.
There is a face There is a face I long to see In its gaze alone is life But I can’t face it as I am To look on it would be to die Towards my lips The flaming coal Burning ‘til it finds the place The inner stain Upon my soul… We will be made clean The darkened doors I’ve lingered in The dead-end roads down which I’ve run Will be revealed for what they’ve been Their power to tempt forever gone. Every longing without name Will finally find its proper place. The host of fears that grip us now Will melt in fear before his face. We’ll wind our way to mountain heights And view the race already run And onward go, our way made bright By his face, shining like the sun

Until He comes I have sought the darkness I have been unwise Since I was young I have hungered for the sinful life And when you called I ran from you Down every easy road My God have you forsaken me? Is it too late for my soul? Great is thy faithfulness Great is thy love I will wait on the Lord Until He comes to make me whole His promise is my hope His promise is my hope I have known affliction Cried rivers from my eyes I have longed for death to come To still my worried mind I will wait quietly for the one I seek He will show compassion as He brings me grief
13.
For the crucified one The wise misunderstand you The strong think they’ve put you down The simple can discern you And blind men have seen your crown. Your father has disowned you And left you upon this tree. Your friends have all abandoned you Do not depend on me. In chaos doubt his wisdom In danger doubt his power But will you doubt his love for you At this, his bloody hour? At this his lonely hour You are like no other Your ways are not our ways If this your shame is glory May I not be ashamed. Your precious flesh unites us Your blood is like melted gold With nothing it can’t purchase Burning and taking hold. O Lord of all the universe King of wood and nail; In weakness, love revealing, In failure you prevail.

about

Ordinary Time

They met in a “History of Christian Worship” class in seminary, where they discovered a shared love for old songs in danger of being forgotten. The band’s oeuvre seamlessly weaves the hymns of generations past with their own new songs—often indistinguishably—producing a
sound that ranges from bluegrass-tinged Americana to sacred harp hymn arrangements.
