LYRICS

Lovingkindness 

(Words and Music by Matt Boswell, Matt Papa, and Matt Redman)

Let praises now awake the dawn
We'll greet Your mercy with a song
Your people stand and sing for all
Your lovingkindness
You’ve carried us in faithfulness
Upon the paths of righteousness
Our gracious King You’ve crowned us with
Your lovingkindness

CHORUS
How great Your lovingkindness
O God of goodness
Our joy forever to sing the glad refrain
Of grace that saved us
Of sweet forgiveness
O how great is
Your lovingkindness

You lift us with a Father’s hand
You shelter us with Your commands
What heart could fully comprehend
Your mercies endless
You lead us through the shadows deep
Where doubts trace every step, it seems
But as the darkness breaks we’ll see
The morning promise

CHORUS

A life laid down to rescue us
With arms outstretched upon the cross
The greatest Gift there ever was
Of lovingkindness


A life laid down to rescue us
With arms outstretched upon the cross
The greatest Gift there ever was
Of lovingkindness
Your lovingkindness

CHORUS x2

 

The Everlasting Love of God 

(Words and Music by Matt Boswell, Matt Papa, and Matt Redman)

Verse 1:
How vast the everlasting love of God
How sure and faithful as the morning
This love so great for us could never fail
Nor end, for it had no beginning

Verse 2:
How strong the father’s beating heart for us
What mercy runs to meet the sinner!
As rivers yearn to reach the lowest place,
His grace shall flow to me forever.

CHORUS:
O the everlasting love of God
It shall ever be my song
So immense and free
More than life to me
The everlasting love of God

VERSE 3:
How great and precious my Redeemer’s blood,
How pure the passion of the Savior;
My sins are drowned beneath this mighty flood,
My soul is swept away with wonder. 

CHORUS

VERSE 4:
How deep the measure of the Spirit's work 
Who dwells in us, who seals the promise
God’s love through time and all eternity
Shall stand, and we shall stand upon it
What now could separate us from it?

CHORUS
