Track Name: There is a Fountain
There is a fountain filled with blood drawn from Immanuel's veins.
and sinners plunged beneath that flood loose all their guilty stains

The dying thief rejoiced to see that fountain in his day.
and there may I though vile as he wash all my sins away

Dear dying Lamb thy precious blood shall never lose its power
Till all the ransomed Church of God be saved to sin no more

E’er since by faith I saw the stream thy flowing wounds supply
Redeeming love has been my theme and shall be till I die
Track Name: Gloria Patri
Glory be to the Father, glory be to the Son,
Glory be to the Spirit, Three in One.
As it was in the beginning it will be forever. Amen.
Track Name: Come Every Soul By Sin Oppressed
Come, ev’ry soul by sin oppressed; there’s mercy with the Lord,
and He will surely give you rest by trusting in His Word.
For Jesus shed His pre cious blood, rich blessings to bestow;
plunge now into the crimson flood that washes white as snow.
Only trust Him, only trust Him, only trust him now.
He will save you, He will save you, He will save you now.

Yes, Jesus is the truth, the way, that leads you into rest;
believe in Him without delay and you are fully blessed.
Come, then, and join the holy band, and on to glory go,
to dwell in that celestial land where joys immortal flow.
Only trust Him, only trust Him, only trust him now.
He will save you, He will save you, He will save you now.
Track Name: Satisfied
All my life long I had panted for a drink from some cool spring
That I hoped would quench the burning of the thirst I felt within
Hallelujah! He has found me, the One my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies all my longings, through his blood I now am saved

Feeding on the filth around me, ‘till my strength was almost gone
Longed my soul for something better, only still to hunger on
Hallelujah! He has found me, the One my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies all my longings, through his blood I now am saved

Poor I was and sought for riches, something that would satisfy
But the dust I gathered ‘round me only mocked my soul’s sad cry
Hallelujah! He has found me, the One my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies all my longings, through his blood I now am saved

Well of water ever springing, Bread of Life so rich and free
Untold wealth that never faileth, my Redeemer is to me
Hallelujah! He has found me, the One my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies all my longings, through his blood I now am saved
Track Name: Out of the Depths
Out of the depths I cry to Thee, oh Lord please hear my call
O Lord be merciful to me, at Thy throne of grace I fall

Out of the woeful depths I cry, from the depths of sin
Of evil done in days gone by, of evil now within

If Thou oh Lord should mark iniquities
Lord who could then draw near?
But here I find forgiveness with Thee that Thou may be feared

Lord from the depths I wait for Thee, my hope is in Thy Word
All through the night 'till day is nigh, my soul waits upon the Lord

Lord here I find Thy mercy now, as ever was with Thee
Before Thy throne of grace I bow Lord be merciful to me

O Israel cast your hope upon the Lord and in His Word do trust
He will redeem you from your sin and raise you from the dust
Track Name: The Feast
With wondering eyes, Lord we admire
the feast prepared by grace;
Come, Lord, and set our souls on fire,
and fill each heart with peace.
These emblems of thy precious love, by faith may we receive!
And with a solemn pleasure prove, we in thy name believe.

We eat this bread, we drink this wine,
come give yourself to us.
We know you’re here, that’s why we’ve come,
to feast on thee with love.

No goodness of our own we bring; we’re sinners vile and base;
Christ is our all; of Christ we sing, and long to see his face.
O may we each, with heart and tongue sing, “Worthy is the Lamb”;
To him alone the praise belongs, and we’ll adore his name.

We eat this bread, we drink this wine,
come give yourself to us.
We know you’re here, that’s why we’ve come,
to feast on thee with love.
Track Name: How Long, O Lord
How long, O Lord, shall I complain like one that seeks his God in vain?
Canst thou thy face forever hide, and I still pray and be denied?

But I have trusted in thy grace, and shall again behold thy face

Shall I forever be forgot, as one whom thou regardest not?
Still shall my soul thy absence mourn, and still despair of thy return?

How long shall my poor troubled breast Be with these anxious thoughts oppressed? And Satan, my malicious foe,Rejoice to see me sunk so low?

Whate’er my fears or foes suggest, thou art my hope, my joy, my rest;
My heart shall feel thy love, and raise my cheerful voice to songs of praise.

But I have trusted in thy grace, and shall again behold thy face
Track Name: Spirit of God
Spirit of God, descend upon my heart;
Wean it from earth; through all its pulses move;
Stoop to my weakness, mighty as Thou art;
And make me love Thee as I ought to love.

I ask no dream, no prophet ecstasies,
No sudden rending of the veil of clay,
No angel vision, no op'ning skies;
But take the dimness of my soul away.

Teach me to feel that Thou art always nigh;
Teach me the struggles of the soul to bear.
To check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh,
Teach me the patience of unanswered prayer.

Hast Thou not bid me love Thee, God and King?
All, all Thine own, soul, heart and strength and mind.
I see Thy cross; there teach me to cling:
O let me seek Thee, and O let me find!

Teach me to love Thee as Thine angels love,
One holy passion filling all my frame;
The presence of Thy descended Dove,
My heart an altar, and Thy love the flame.
Track Name: Holy Hands
Not what my hands have done can save my guilty soul
Not what my toiling flesh has borne can make my spirit whole
Not what I feel or do can give me peace with God
Not all my prayers and sighs and tears can bear my awful load
These guilty hands are raised, filthy rags are all I bring
And I have come to hide beneath Your wings
These holy hands are raised, washed in the fountain of Your grace
And now I wear Your righteousness.

Thy work alone O Christ can ease this weight of sin
Thy blood alone O Lamb of God can give me peace within
Thy love to me O God not mine O Lord to thee
Can rid me of this dark unrest and set my spirit free
These guilty hands are raised, filthy rags are all I bring
And I have come to hide beneath Your wings
These holy hands are raised, washed in the fountain of Your grace
And now I wear Your righteousness.

Thy grace a lone O God to me can pardon speak
Thy power alone O Lamb of God can this sore bondage break
No other work save Thine, no other blood will do
No strength save that which is divine can bear me safely through
These guilty hands are raised, filthy rags are all I bring
And I have come to hide beneath Your wings
These holy hands are raised, washed in the fountain of Your grace
And now I wear Your righteousness.

I praise the God of grace I trust His truth and might
He calls me His I call Him mine my God, my joy, my light
Tis He who saveth me and freely pardon gives
I love because He loveth me I live be cause He lives
These guilty hands are raised, filthy rags are all I bring
And I have come to hide beneath Your wings
These holy hands are raised, washed in the fountain of Your grace
And now I wear Your righteousness.
Track Name: Gracious Spirit, Dove Divine
Gracious Spirit, Dove divine, let thy light within me shine;
all my guilty fears remove, with atoning blood and love.
Speak thy pard'ning grace to me; set the burdened sinner free;
lead me to the Lamb of God, wash me in his precious blood.

Life and peace to me impart; seal salvation on my heart;
breathe thyself into my breast, earnest of immortal rest.

Guard me round on ev‘ry side, save me from self-righteous pride;
me with Jesus' mind inspire, melt me with celestial fire.
Thou my dross and tin consume, let thy inward kingdom come;
all my prayer and praise suggest, dwell and reign within my breast.

Life and peace to me impart; seal salvation on my heart;
breathe thyself into my breast, earnest of immortal rest.
