about

Celebrating our first year of services on the Feast of All Saints. In loving memory of Phil Woods, City of Light’s first saint to enter the heavenly City of Our God. Seek the peace of the city where I have carried you, for here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come. (Jer. 29; Heb. 13)

Track Name: Mercies New (Lamentations 3)
Your mercies are new every morning;
Every morning, let our songs rise to you.
Your mercies are new every morning;
Every morning, let our songs rise to you.

Lord, you are good,
Your love is our portion,
We will trust, we will wait for you.
Lord, you are good,
You come to our rescue,
We will trust, we will wait for you.

When all of our fears rise within us;
Rise within us, like the rolling waves.
Then we’ll tell the stories of your goodness;
Of your goodness, you are strong to save.

Our hope is in the Lord,
And we won’t be disappointed,
We won’t be disappointed.
Track Name: In Your House (Psalm 84)
How lovely is your dwelling place
oh Lord of haven walls
With all i am i cry to you
You are the living God

The sparrow finds a resting place
the swallow builds a home
I long to come and find my place
at your table Lord

Better is one day
Better is one day in your house
Better is one day
Than a thousand elsewhere

You’ve built a highway in my heart
To your city gates
And though i walk through weeping now
Your joy will lead me home

For you oh Lord are my sun and shield
No good thing will you withhold
Forever i will dwell with you
At the altar of your love
Track Name: City of Our God (Isaiah 60)
When we dwell in darkness, and can’t outrun the night;
When our hope is hollow, a light.

No more songs of sadness, no more shroud of fear,
No shadows cast between us, he’s here.

And the Lord, he will rise over us,
His love will cover us.

Arise, and shine, for your light has come!
The glory of the Lord has dawned upon us,
Fling wide, you gates, in the city of light,
The nations are streaming to the love of Christ.

There’s no room for violence inside these city walls,
The beauty of our Savior restores us all.

And the Lord, he will rise over us,
His love will cover us.

There will be no lamp; there will be no sun
Jesus is the light of the city of our God
There will be no day; there will be no night
Jesus is the light shining bright, shining bright
Track Name: Sanctus (Isaiah 6; Matthew 21)
Holy, holy, holy Lord
God of power and might
Heaven and earth are full, oh Lord
Full of your glory

Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna in the highest

Blessed is he who comes in the name
In the name of the Lord
Blessed is he who comes in the name
In the name of the Lord
Track Name: Your Word (Isaiah 55)
Open our ears
Open our hearts
To hear your Word
To hear your Word

Open our mouths
Loosen our tongues
To speak your Word
To speak your Word

Your Word will do what you sent it to do
Your Word has overcome
Your Word is true, and it’s taking root
Making all things new in us

Ready our feet
Steady our hands
To live your Word
To live your Word
Track Name: Sleepers Awake (Ephesians 5)
Sleepers awake!
Christ will shine on you.
Track Name: BONUS TRACK: Sanctus (Liturgical Version)
Holy, holy, holy Lord
God of power and might
Heaven and earth are full, oh Lord
Full of your glory

Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna in the highest

Blessed is he who comes in the name
In the name of the Lord
Blessed is he who comes in the name
In the name of the Lord
