Lyrics & Extras

Words by Chris Anderson; Music by Greg Habegger

His robes for mine: O wonderful exchange!
Clothed in my sin, Christ suffered ‘neath God’s rage.
Draped in His righteousness, I’m justified.
In Christ I live, for in my place He died.

Chorus:
I cling to Christ, and marvel at the cost:
Jesus forsaken, God estranged from God.
Bought by such love, my life is not my own.
My praise—my all—shall be for Christ alone.

His robes for mine: what cause have I for dread?
God’s daunting Law Christ mastered in my stead.
Faultless I stand with righteous works not mine,
Saved by my Lord’s vicarious death and life.

His robes for mine: God’s justice is appeased.
Jesus is crushed, and thus the Father’s pleased.
Christ drank God’s wrath on sin, then cried, “’Tis done!”
Sin’s wage is paid; propitiation won.

His robes for mine: such anguish none can know.
Christ, God’s beloved, condemned as though His foe.
He, as though I, accursed and left alone;
I, as though He, embraced and welcomed home!

Words and Music by Chris Anderson and Bob Kauflin

We will trust God’s Word alone,
Where his perfect will is known;
Our traditions shift like sand
While his Truth forever stands.

We will live by faith alone,
Clothed in merit not our own;
All we claim is Jesus Christ
And his finished sacrifice.

Chorus:
Glory be, glory be to God alone,
Through the church he redeemed and made his own.
He has freed us, he will keep us till we’re safely home
Glory be, glory be to God alone!

We are saved by grace alone—
Undeserved, yet freely shown;
No accomplishment on earth
Can achieve the second birth.

We will stand on Christ alone,
The unyielding Cornerstone;
Nations rage and devils roar,
Still he reigns forevermore!

Words by Chris Anderson; Music by Greg Habegger

My Jesus, fair, was pierced by thorns,
By thorns grown from the fall.
Thus He who gave the curse was torn
To end that curse for all.

Chorus:
O love divine, O matchless grace—
That God should die for men!
With joyful grief I lift my praise,
Abhorring all my sin,
Adoring only Him.

My Jesus, meek, was scorned by men,
By men in blasphemy.
“Father, forgive their senseless sin!”
He prayed, for them, for me.

My Jesus, kind, was torn by nails,
By nails of cruel men.
And to His cross, as grace prevailed,
God pinned my wretched sin.

My Jesus, pure, was crushed by God,
By God, in judgment just.
The Father grieved, yet turned His rod
On Christ, made sin for us.

My Jesus, strong, shall come to reign,
To reign in majesty—
The Lamb arose, and death is slain.
Lord, come in victory!

Words by Chris Anderson; Music by Greg Habegger

I run to Christ when chased by fear
And find a refuge sure.
“Believe in me,” His voice I hear;
His words and wounds secure.

I run to Christ when torn by grief
And find abundant peace.
“I too had tears,” He gently speaks;
Thus joy and sorrow meet.

I run to Christ when worn by life
And find my soul refreshed.
“Come unto Me,” He calls through strife;
Fatigue gives way to rest.

I run to Christ when vexed by hell
And find a mighty arm.
“The Devil flees,” the Scriptures tell;
He roars, but cannot harm.

I run to Christ when stalked by sin
And find a sure escape.
“Deliver me,” I cry to Him;
Temptation yields to grace.

I run to Christ when plagued by shame
And find my one defense.
“I bore God’s wrath,” He pleads my case—
My Advocate and Friend.

Words by Paul Keew & Brian Pinner; Music by Paul Keew

O God, my joy, You reign above
In radiant splendor and beauty.
Your Word has drawn my heart to love
The awesome sight of Your glory.
Your blazing light and gospel grace
Shine brightly from my Savior’s face.
No other wonder would I see
Than Christ enthroned in His glory!

Sustained by joy in trial and pain,
I trust Your wisdom and mercy.
Through suff’ring that Your love ordains,
More like Your Son You will make me.
For Christ embraced the cross of shame,
Beholding glorious joys to come.
O give me faith like His to see
That suff’ring lifts me to glory!

Compelled by joy, I fight the sin
That turns my gaze from Your glory.
Your Holy Spirit dwells within;
His presence arms me for vict’ry.
Let death and hell against me rise;
Through death I’ll gain eternal joys.
All pow’rs of hell will bend the knee
Before my great King of Glory!

Words by Chris Anderson; Music by Greg Habegger

Nothing I’ve done could merit God’s grace;
Nothing I’ll do can take it away.
I have one hope, in life and death:
I have been clothed in Christ’s righteousness.

Chorus:
Christ is sufficient! His work is finished! 
He is my faith’s Author and End; 
Christ is enough—my Savior and Friend!

Nothing remains since Jesus has died;
Justice was paid; the Judge satisfied.
Great is my sin; greater His love;
I have been cleansed with Calvary’s blood!

Nothing I’ve sought on earth satisfies;
I was designed to thirst after Christ.
Beckoned by Him, “Drink and be filled.”
I am content, yet yearn for Him still.

Nothing but Christ can undo the Fall.
He will return to reign over all.
Come to us, Lord; right ev’ry wrong;
Soon the redeemed will join heaven’s song.

Words and Music by Paul Keew, taken from 1 Peter 1 & 2

Chosen by the Father’s mercy,
Set apart to serve His Son,
Sanctified by His own Spirit—
Praise the Holy Three in One!
Saved by resurrection power,
Shielded in His faithful love;
Now, no enemy can tarnish
My inheritance above!

Chorus:
I’m born again!
I’m God’s own chosen child of mercy!
Born again! What love and grace!
Father keep me walking worthy
Till I look upon Your face

Led by wisdom into suff’ring,
Grieved by many trials below,
Yet rejoicing in His purpose,
That my faith as gold may glow.
Granted faith for overcoming,
Filled with love for Christ unseen;
Even angels cannot fathom
What salvation God will bring!

Fixed upon this hope completely,
As obedient children fear;
For the Holy One who called you
Purchased you with blood so dear.
Born anew from seed eternal,
By His lovingkindness spurred,
Lay aside all tasteless yearnings—
Crave the true and living Word!

Built on Christ, the sure foundation,
We are free from guilt and shame;
He is fitting us together
As a house to praise His name!
We are chosen as God’s people,
Called from darkness into light;
O what mercy now entreats us
To proclaim His glories bright!

Words by Chris Anderson; Music by Greg Habegger

Go to the world for the sake of His name;
To every nation His glory proclaim.
Pray that the Spirit wise will open darkened eyes,
Granting new life to display Jesus’ fame.

Chorus:
In Jesus’ power, preach Christ to the lost;
For Jesus’ glory, count all else but loss.
Gather from every place trophies of sov’reign grace.
Lest life be wasted, exalt Jesus’ cross.

Love the unloved for the sake of His name;
Like Christ, befriend those whose heads hang in shame.
Jesus did not condemn, but was condemned for them.
Trust gospel pow’r, for we once were the same.

Rescue the lost for the sake of His name;
As Christ commands, snatch them out of the flame.
Tell that when Jesus died God’s wrath was satisfied.
Urge them to flee to the Lamb who was slain.

Look to the Throne for the sake of His name;
Think of the throng who will share in His reign.
Some for whose souls we pray will share our joy that day,
Joining our song for the sake of His name!

Words and Music by Paul Keew, from Psalm 66

Chorus:
Shout, shout out for joy to God all the earth!
Sing, sing out the glory of His name!
Say, say unto God, “How awesome Your deeds!”
Give, give to the Lord His glorious praise!

O come, come and see how the name of the Lord is revered.
All the earth is alive with a worshipful song!
O come to the cross, and be free of rebellion and pride.
O come and rejoice evermore in all God has done!

So great is His pow’r that His enemies crumble and fall.
Forever He reigns and He rules by His might!
His eyes are ablaze, keeping watch on the nations of men.
All the kings of the earth do His bidding and all His delight!

I will bless You, O God, when You lovingly test and refine.
Though I walk through the fire I will offer You praise!
You will shepherd my soul to a place of abundance and rest.
I will come to Your house and an offering of thankfulness raise!

O come, come and hear, all who fear God and call on His name,
How I cried to the Lord, and He answered my prayer!
Had I cherished my sin, all my words would be empty and vain.
Bless the Lord, for His mercy and faithfulness crown all our days!

Words by Chris Anderson; Music by Greg Habegger

You promised, Lord, that You would work
To build a strong and vibrant church—
A church that stands by grace alone
On Christ, our Rock and Cornerstone;
On Christ, our Rock and Cornerstone.

Chorus:
And so we pray: Lord, build Your church!
Deploy Your saints across the earth;
Destroy hell’s feeble, falling gates;
And glory in Your church’s praise;
And glory in Your church’s praise!

You called us, Lord, to join Your work:
To raise a pure and holy church—
A temple made of living stones
United as Your Spirit’s home;
United as Your Spirit’s home.

We thank You, Lord, that You have worked
To found a gospel-preaching church—
And yet, our task remains undone;
Lord, build Your church until You come;
Lord, build Your church until You come!
