CW: “Christ, the Life of All the Living” by Ernst Homburg (CW114)

“Endless Praises” by Stephen Altrogge

Chorus 1
Let us lift up endless praises
Let us give Him endless song
Let us lift up endless praises
Let us sing of all He’s done
Let us sing of all our God has done

Verse 1
Look upon this fearful scene
The King of Love nailed to a tree
The Prince of Glory made to bleed
Hear the pardon that He speaks
Forgive them is His plea
Where has love like this been seen (chorus)

Verse 2
Look upon this wondrous sight
Foul sinners clothed in white
With the righteousness of Christ
All our guilt is washed away
Every debt we owed is paid
How astounding is this grace (chorus)

Misc 1
(BRIDGE)
A thousand ages is not long enough
To tell the glories of the Son
Forever we will sing
Redemption’s song
And of the victory You’ve won (chorus)

“Endless Praises” by Stephen Altrogge

“Christ, the Life of All the Living” by Ernst Homburg

1. Christ, the Life of all the living, Christ, the Death of death, our foe,
Who, thyself for me once giving To the darkest depths of woe –
Through thy sufferings, death, and merit I eternal life inherit.
Thousand, thousand thanks shall be, Dearest Jesus, unto thee.

2. Thou, ah, thou hast taken on thee Bonds and stripes, a cruel rod;
Pain and scorn were heaped upon thee, O thou sinless Son of God!
Thus didst thou my soul deliver From the bonds of sin forever.
Thousand, thousand thanks shall be, Dearest Jesus, unto thee.
