Anthem

So many reasons - too many to count
To say that I love You - to worship You now
Your love is perfect - and Your heart is kind
I’m Yours forever - forever You’re mine

Jesus, the anthem of my heart
Jesus the anchor of my soul
I’m overwhelmed by all You are
Oh, how I love You

You call me beloved - and You call me friend
Your grace says I’m worthy - You welcome me in
Now all that I long for - and all that I need
Is to be in Your presence - Forever I fall at Your feet

Faithful to the end - God You are always good
Where do I begin - There’s so many reason to love You
Your promise never breaks - Your beauty never fades
What else can I say
There’s so many reasons to love you

Call to Response


1.  Sing:

O Come to the Altar

Are you hurting and broken within
Overwhelmed by the weight of your sin
Jesus is calling
Have you come to the end of yourself
Do you thirst for a drink from the well
Jesus is calling

O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ

Leave behind your regrets and mistakes
Come today there’s no reason to wait - Jesus is calling
Bring your sorrows and trade them for joy
From the ashes a new life is born
Jesus is calling

Oh what a Savior isn’t He wonderful
Sing alleluia, Christ is risen
Bow down before Him for He is Lord of all
Sing alleluia, Christ is risen

Bear your cross as you wait for the crown
Tell the world of the treasure you’ve found

Who You Say I Am

Who am I that the highest King Would welcome me
I was lost but He brought me in Oh His love for me
Oh His love for me

Who the Son sets free Oh is free indeed
I'm a child of God Yes I am

Free at last He has ransomed me His grace runs deep
While I was a slave to sin Jesus died for me
Yes He died for me

Who the Son sets free Oh is free indeed
I'm a child of God Yes I am
In my Father's house There's a place for me
I'm a child of God Yes I am

I am chosen Not forsaken
I am who You say I am
You are for me Not against me
I am who You say I am

Mercy Hill Kids

While difficult, this pandemic does create a wonderful chance for parents to step towards their God-given call as chief disciplers of their kids.  We know this may feel overwhelming and that is why we want to help!  Parents of Mercy Hill children should have already received an email from the Director of Mercy Hill Kids, Christina Lugo, regarding ways you can utilize the Gospel Project curriculum at home.  This information has also been included on our blog here.  Beyond this, most Sundays, we are also hosting an online worship gathering for our kids.  You can check here for more details.  We'd love to have you join us!

If you have any questions or need help in any way, don't hesitate to reach out to Christina at    

Have a Wonderful Week!

Power to Redeem

You take what is
And you make it beautiful
When love floods in,
We're restored forever more

With breath that brings the dead to life,
With words that pierce the dark with light
Only by the blood are we set free.
With mercy strong to carry shame
and nail it to a tree
You alone hold the power to redeem.

No guilt competes
with innocence crucified.
No grave can hold what your grace has justified.

Rejoice oh child of God
Lift your eyes to see
With every morning light,
Again we are redeemed

1.  Sing:

Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)

Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

My chains are gone, I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
Unending love, amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God who called me here below
Will be forever mine

Living Hope

How great the chasm that lay between us
How high the mountain I could not climb
In desperation I turned to heaven
And spoke your name into the night

Then through the darkness your loving kindness
Tore through the shadows of my soul
The work is finished the end is written
Jesus Christ my Living Hope

Who could imagine so great a mercy
What heart could fathom such boundless grace
The God of Ages stepped down from Glory
To wear my sin and bear my shame

The cross has spoken I am forgiven
The King of Kings calls me His own
Beautiful Savior I’m yours forever
Jesus Christ my Living Hope

Hallelujah praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain there’s salvation in your Name
Jesus Christ my Living Hope

Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence the Roaring Lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me

Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence the Roaring Lion
Declare the grave has no claim on me
Jesus Yours is the victory

This Is Amazing Grace

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger
The King of Glory, the King above all kings
Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder
Who leaves us breathless in awe and wonder
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

This is amazing grace This is unfailing love
That You would take my place That You would bear my cross
You would lay down Your life That I would be set free
Jesus, I sing for All that You've done for me

Who brings our chaos back into order
Who makes the orphan a son and daughter
The King of Glory, the King above all kings
Who rules the nations with truth and justice
Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave (3x)

1.  Sing:

How Deep the Father's Love for Us

How deep the Father’s love for us,
how vast beyond all measure
that He should give His on - ly Son
to make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain of sear - ing loss.
The Father turns His face away
as wounds which mar the Cho - sen One
bring many sons to glo - ry.

Behold the Man upon the cross,
my sin upon His shoul - ders.
Ashamed, I hear my mock - ing voice
call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that held Him there
until it was accom - plished;
His dying breath has brought me life.
I know that it is fin - ished.

I will not boast in an- y - thing:
no gifts, no pow’r, no wis - dom.
But I will boast in Je - sus Christ:
His death and resurrection.
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an an - swer.
But this I know with all my heart:
His wounds have paid my ransom.

Power to Redeem

You take what is
And you make it beautiful
When love floods in,
We're restored forever more

With breath that brings the dead to life,
With words that pierce the dark with light
Only by the blood are we set free.
With mercy strong to carry shame
and nail it to a tree
You alone hold the power to redeem.

No guilt competes
with innocence crucified.
No grave can hold what your grace has justified.

Rejoice oh child of God
Lift your eyes to see
With every morning light,
Again we are redeemed
