Track Name: Let There Be Light
Words: John Marriot (1813), alt. Greg Willson (2012)
Music: Greg Willson (2012)

Thou, whose almighty word
Chaos and darkness heard
And took their flight
Hear us, we humbly pray
And where the gospel's day
Sheds not its glorious ray
Let there be light

Thou, who didst come to bring
On Thy protecting wing
Healing and sight
Sight to the inly blind
Health to the sick in mind
Oh! now, to all mankind
Let there be light

Chorus
Your light come down
In it we're found
You heal our hearts
Each crooked part

Spirit of truth and love
Life-giving holy Dove
Speed forth Thy flight
Move o'er the water's face
By Thine almighty grace
And in earth's darkest place
Let there be light

Blessed and holy Three
Glorious Trinity
Wisdom, love, might
Boundless as ocean's tide
Rolling in fullest pride
O'er the world far and wide
Let there be light
Track Name: Holy, Holy, Holy Lord
Words: a Eucharistic prayer from The Book of Common Prayer
Music: Greg Willson (2012)

The Lord be with you
And also with you
Lift up your hearts
We lift them to the Lord our God
It is right to give Him thanks and praise

So we join the saints and the angels
Proclaiming Your glory as we sing

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might
Heaven and earth are full of Your glory
Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might
Heaven and earth are full of Your glory
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna in the highest
Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord
Track Name: Lord, I Lift My Soul To Thee
Words: The Psalter (1912), alt. Greg Willson (2012)
Music: Greg Willson (Greg Willson)

Lord, I lift my soul to thee
O my God, I trust Thy might
Let not foes exult o'er me
Shame me not before their sight

Yea, may none be put to shame
None who wait for Thee to bless
But dishonor be their name
Who without a cause transgress

Chorus:
Lord, I lift my soul to Thee, O my God

Lord, to me Thy ways make known
Guide in truth and teach Thou me
Thou my Savior art alone
All the day I wait for Thee

Lord, remember in Thy love
All thy mercies manifold
Tender mercies from above
Changeless from the days of old

Sins of youth remember not
Nor my trespasses record
Let not mercy be forgot
For Thy goodness' sake, O Lord

Grace and truth shall mark the way
Where the Lord His own will lead
If His Word they still obey
And His testimonies heed
Track Name: Salvation for Wretched Dying Men
Words: Isaac Watts (1709), alt. Greg Willson (2012)
Music: Greg Willson (2012)

Begin my tongue, some heavenly theme
And speak some boundless and blissful thing
The mighty works or mightier name
Of our eternal, unrivaled King

Tell of His wondrous faithfulness
And sound His power of peace abroad
Sing the sweet promise of His grace
And beauty of our saving God

Chorus
Salvation from the Lord
For wretched dying men
His breath restores the world
Redemption knows no end

How could my leaping heart rejoice
And think my heaven is secure
I trust the all-creating voice
And faith desires nothing more

Oh, might I hear Thine heavenly tongue
But whisper, "Thou art mine!"
Those gentle words should raise my song
To notes almost divine

Engraved as in eternal brass
The mighty promise always shines
Nor can the powers of darkness rase
Those everlasting, infinite lines
Track Name: Condescension
Words: Frederick William Faber (1852)
Music: Greg Willson (2012)

My God, how wonderful Thou art
Thy majesty how bright
How beautiful Thy mercy-seat
In depths of burning light

Oh, how I fear Thee, living God
With deepest, tenderest fears
And worship Thee with trembling hope
And penitential tears

Yet I may love Thee, too, O Lord
Almighty as Thou art
For Thou hast stoop'd to ask of me
The love of my poor heart

No earthly father loves like Thee
Or mother, half so mild
Bears and forbears, as Thou hast done
With me, Thy sinful child

Father of Jesus, love's reward
What raptures there will be
Prostrate before Thy throne to lie
And ever gaze on Thee
Track Name: Remember Me
Words: Thomas Haweis (1791)
Music: Greg Willson (2012)

O Thou from whom all goodness flows
I lift my soul to Thee
In all my sorrows, conflicts, woes
Good Lord, remember me

When on my groaning, burdened heart
My sins lie heavily
My pardon speak, new peace imparts
In love remember me

When trials sore obstruct my way
And ills I cannot flee
Oh, give me strength, Lord, as my day
For good remember me

Distressed with pain, disease and grief
This feeble body see
Grant patience, rest and kind relief
Hear and remember me

If on my face for Thy dear name
Shame and reproaches be
All hail reproach and welcome shame
If Thou remember me

The hour is near, consigned to death
I own the just decree
Savior with my last parting breath
I'll cry, remember me
