Track 1- The Old Rugged Cross

Words and Music by George Bennard

Arranged by Valeria Long (Tri-Long Productions)

Verse 1:

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,

the emblem of suffering and shame;

and I love that old cross where the dearest and best

for a world of lost sinners was slain.

Chorus:

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,

till my trophies at last I lay down;

I will cling to the old rugged cross,

and exchange it some day for a crown.

Verse 2:

O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,

has a wondrous attraction for me;

for the dear Lamb of God left his glory above

to bear it to dark Calvary.

(Chorus twice)

 

 

Track 2- The Name of the Lord

Words and music by Samantha Hasselbusch

Verse 1:

The Name of the Lord it is just and holy,

Worthy of honor, praise, and glory;

The Name of the Lord is great and mighty to save.

The Name of the Lord it is all-victorious,

Full of all power, strong and glorious;

At His feet we bow of all that He gave, all that He gave!

Chorus 1:

Mercy, glory, and beauty are in the Name of the Lord Almighty;

O how great, how great is the Name of the Lord!

How great is the Name of the Lord!

Verse 2:

The Name of the Lord is our strength in weakness,

Frees us from sin, has the power to heal us;

At His Name every knee will bow, every tongue will confess, yes, we will confess!

(Chorus 1)

Chorus 2:

Ancient of days and the King of all glory,

Prince of all peace and of love and of mercy,

How great, how great is the Name of the Lord!

How great is Your Name; forever the same,

How great is the Name of the Lord!

How great is Your Name; forever You reign,

How great is the Name of the Lord!

Track 3- Jesus Understands (Based upon John 1:14 and Hebrews 4:15)

Words and music by Samantha Hasselbusch

Verse 1:

If you're feeling helpless,

If you're feeling hopeless,

You're feeling like you're on your own.

Jesus knows your troubles,

Your burdens, fears, and struggles,

Remember that you're not alone.

For He was once as you and I,

The Word made flesh, He gave His life.

Chorus 1:

Jesus understands, for He has been there too;

He has left His only home and all that He has known to live among us.

Jesus understands just what you're going through,

For He laid down His rights, laid down His life just to save us,

He is always there to hold your hand,

Jesus understands.

He understands.

Verse 2:

Though storms of life will find you,

Though fears and doubts may bind you,

There's perfect peace and rest in Christ.

If you feel rejected,

Despised, and unaccepted,

It seems that there's just not a friend in sight.

Jesus knows just how you feel,

He wants you to know His love is real.

Chorus 2:

Jesus understands, for He did it all for you,

Hanging there upon a tree to set you free from death and from your sinfulness.

Jesus understands, and He will walk with you,

Your high priest and friend until the end; He's with you in your weakness.

Can't you see He's reaching out His hand?

O, can't you see He's reaching out His hand?

Jesus understands.

He understands.

 

 

Track 4- You Bring Us Home Again (Based upon Luke 15: 4-6)

Words and Music by Samantha Hasselbusch

Verse 1:

Once dead and filthy I had been,

Once gripped with guilt and stained with sin;

But through Your grace, drew me to You.

You raised me up and made me new.

When, like a sheep, I've gone astray,

And I have turned to my own way;

But still no matter where I roam,

Lord, you come and bring me home.

Chorus 1:

When I am faithless, still so faithful You remain.

And when I wander, lord, You bring me back again.

Your great love for me brings joy unto my soul,

You never let me go,

No no no, o Father, this I know,

You bring me home again.

Verse 2:

Lord, though I stumble, though I fall,

I can hear Your tender call;

Because I know Your gentle voice,

You call me home, and You rejoice.

Chorus 2:

And when one is lost, You leave the ninety-nine,

And You keep searching til the one who's lost You find.

And that lost one You've found you bring back to the fold.

O Lord, you love us so.

O Father, this I know.

You bring us home again.

Track 6-  All I Need to Know

Words and music by Samantha Hasselbusch

Verse 1:

I may know a lot of things,

But I don't know everything.

And I never claimed to know it all.

I don't know why God loves me,

I don't know why He showed His grace to me,

Cause I know how much I fail and fall.

And all too often I give in,

And I stumble and fall into sin,

But I know all I need to know!

Chorus:

My God  so loved me,

He sent His Son for me,

And because I believe,

I will live forever!

Jesus crucified,

That I am sanctified,

Refined and purified,

For my Lord and Savior,

And if I know nothing else,

This is all I need to know.

Verse 2:

I don't know the ways of God.

And neither do I know His thoughts,

Nor all His reasons for adversity.

I don't know what tomorrow brings,

But I know the one who holds all things.

And I know He knows our every need.

And this one thing I know for sure,

In Him my future is secure.

And that’s all I need to know.

(Chorus)

Bridge:

I don't know when He'll come,

Or when He will call me home.

Still I know all I need to know.

For I know that I will be,

With my God who has saved me,

And that's all I need to know!

For You are the Potter, and I am the clay.

O Father, this I pray,

Lord, each and every day,

That You will have Your will and Your way with this clay.

O Father, this I pray, in all I do and say,

That You will have Your will and Your way with this clay.

O Father, hold me, shape and remould me,

Show me Your will, Lord, and show me Your way.

O Father, Your chose me, fill me, and use me,

If I could just see You for who You are,

If I could just hear You and Your words of life;

If I could just understand Your every way,

Then no mountains high, no valley low;

In only You all blessings flow.

Nothing's impossible, nothing beyond Your reach,

Everything too hard for me,

You already see,

Chorus:

I want to see You in the beauty of your holiness.

I want to see You; to see Your goodness.

I want to see You face to face.

I want to see You as You are.

It is well, it is well with my soul.

And, Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight, 

the clouds be rolled back as a scroll; 

the trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend, 

even so, it is well with my soul. 

(Chorus twice)
