1. "Jesus Paid it All" by Elvina Hall

I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.”

Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

2. "In Christ Alone" by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.

What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

3. "Forever" by Kari Jobe, Brian, and Jenn Johnson

The moon and stars they wept
The morning sun was dead
The savior of the world was fallen

His body on the cross
His blood poured out for us
The weight of every curse upon him

4. "Hosanna" by Brooke Fraser Ligertwood

Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna in the highest

I see the king of glory coming down the clouds with fire
The whole earth shakes, the whole earth shakes
I see his love and mercy washing over all our sin
The people sing, the people sing

5. "How Great Thou Art" by Stuart K. Hine

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

6. “My Victory” by David Crowder, Hank Bentley, Ed Cash, and Darren Mulligan

You came for criminals
And every pharisee
You came for hypocrites
Even one like me

You carried sin and shame
The guilt of every man
The weight of all I've done
Nailed into your hands

Oh, Your love bled for me
Oh, Your blood in crimson streams
Oh, Your death is hell's defeat
A cross meant to kill is my Jesus victory

7. "Blessed Assurance" by Francis Jane Crosby and Phoebe Palmer Knapp

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood

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.

8. “Resurrection Power” by Chris Tomlin

You called me from the grave by name
You called me out of all my shame
I see the old has passed away
The new has come

Now I have resurrection power
Living on the inside
Jesus, You have given us freedom

No longer bound by sin and darkness
Living in the light of Your goodness
You have given us freedom

9. "Be Thou My Vision" by Eleanor Hull

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.

Be thou my wisdom, and thou my true word;
I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord.
Thou my great Father; thine own may I be,
thou in me dwelling and I one with thee.

10. "All Hail King Jesus" by Jeremy Riddle

For the earth began to shake
And the veil was torn
What sacrifice was made
As the heavens roared

All hail King Jesus
All hail the Lord of Heaven and earth
All hail King Jesus
All hail the Savior of the world

11. "The Blessing" by Kari Jobe, Cody Carnes, Steven Furtick, Chris Brown

The Lord bless you and keep you
Make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you
The Lord turn His face toward you
And give you peace

May His favor be upon you
And a thousand generations
And your family and your children
And their children, and their children

12. "Jesus Loves Me" by Willam B. Bradbury

Jesus loves me! This I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to Him belong;
They are weak, but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

13. "What a Beautiful Name" by Brooke Ligertwood & Ben Fielding

What a beautiful Name it is
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King

What a beautiful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

14. “The Old Rugged Cross Made the Difference” by Bill and Gloria Gaither.

Twas a life filled with aimless desperation
Without hope walked the shell of a man;
Then a hand with a nailprint stretched downward,
Just one touch then a new life began.

And the old rugged cross made the difference
In a life bound for heartache and defeat;
I will praise Him forever and ever
For the cross made the difference for me.

15. "Because He Lives" by Bill and Gloria Gaither.

God sent His Son, they called him Jesus,
He came to love, heal and forgive;
He lived and died, to buy my pardon,
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives.

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living just because He lives.
