Track Name: Salvation to God
Ye servants of God, your Master proclaim
And publish abroad His wonderful name
The name all victorious of Jesus extol
His kingdom is glorious, and rules over all

Salvation to God, who sits on the throne
Let all cry aloud, and honor the Son
The praises of Jesus the angels proclaim
Fall down on their faces, and worship the Lamb

Salvation, His triumph we will sing
Salvation, to Jesus our King
Salvation, to God and to the Lamb
Salvation, from the throne of the I AM

Though dark be our way, since He is our guide
'Tis mine to obey, 'tis His to provide
Though cisterns be broken, and creatures all frail
The word He has spoken shall surely prevail

Then let us adore, and give Him His right
All glory and power and wisdom and might
All honor and blessing, with angels above
And thanks never-ceasing, for infinite love
Track Name: Psalm 3
Your promise, Lord, is perfect peace
And yet my trials still increase
Till fears sometimes my soul assail
And I believe the worst prevails

Then savior then I fly to thee
And in Your grace my refuge see
You heard me from Your holy hill
And You will hear and help me still

Beneath Your wings secure I sleep
What foe can harm me while You keep
I wake and find You at my side
My ever-present Guard and Guide

Oh why should earth or hell distress
With God so strong, so near to bless?
From Him alone salvation flows
On Him alone, my soul, repose

Arise, O God, save me
Track Name: Substitution
Surely Christ, Your griefs have borne
Weeping soul, no longer mourn
View Him bleeding on the tree
Pouring out His life for thee
There your every sin He bore
Weeping soul, lament no more

Cast your guilty soul on Him
Find Him mighty to redeem
At His feet your burden lay
Look your doubts and cares away
Now by faith the Son embrace
Plead His promise, trust His grace

Lord, Your arm must be revealed
'Ere I can by faith be healed
Since I scarce can look to Thee
Cast a gracious eye on me
At thy feet myself I lay
Shine, oh shine my fears away
Track Name: Holy Baptism
As he that sees a dark and shady grove,
Stays not, but looks beyond it on the sky;

So when I view my sins, mine eyes remove
More backward still, and to that water fly,

Which is above the heavens, whose spring and rest
Is in my dear Redeemer's pierced side.

O blessed streams! Either ye do prevent
And stop our sins from growing thick and wide,
Or else give tears to drown them, as they grow.

In you Redemption measures all my time,
And spreads the plaster equal to the crime:

You taught the book of life my name, that so,
Whatever future sins should me miscall,
Your first acquaintance might discredit all.
Track Name: O Sacred Head, Now Wounded
O sacred Head, now wounded,
With grief and shame weighed down;
Now scornfully surrounded
With thorns, thine only crown;
O sacred Head, what glory,
What bliss till now was thine!
Yet, though despised and gory,
I joy to call thee mine.

What thou, my Lord, hast suffered
Was all for sinners' gain:
Mine, mine was the transgression,
But thine the deadly pain.
Lo, here I fall, my Saviour!
'Tis I deserve thy place;
Look on me with thy favor,
Vouchsafe to me thy grace.

What language shall I borrow
To thank thee, dearest Friend,
For this thy dying sorrow,
Thy pity without end?
O make me thine for ever;
And should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never
Outlive my love to thee.
Track Name: Shortness and Uncertainty
While with ceaseless course the sun
Rolls along the passing year
Many souls our race have run
Never more to meet us here

Fixed in an eternal state
They have done with all below
We a little longer wait
But how little—none can know

Switfly thus our fleeting days
Bear us down life's rapid stream
Upwards, Lord, our spirits raise
All below is but a dream

Bless Thy word to young and old
Fill us with a Savior's love
And when life's short tale is told
May we dwell with Thee above
