Now when He rolls up His sleeves He wasn't puttin' on the ritz
Our God is an awesome God
There's thunder in His footsteps, lightnin' in His fists
Our God is an awesome God
And you know He wasn't kiddin' when He kicked them out Eden
It wasn't for no reason that He shed His blood
His return is very so and so you'd better be believin'
Our God is an awesome God (do you believe it?)

Repeat Chorus, Part 1, and Part 2 together (x2)

Now when the sky was starless in the dead of the night
Our God is an awesome God

His mercy and grace He gave us at the cross
I hope that we have not too quickly forgotten
Our God is an awesome God

Lead: Laura Ellis

Lyrics:

Thorns on His head, spear in His side
Yet it was a heartache that made Him cry
He gave His life so that you would understand
Is there any way you could say no to this Man?

If Christ Himself
Were standing here
Face full of glory and eyes full of tears
He'd hold out His arms and His nail-printed hands
Is there any way you could say no to this Man?

Chorus:
How could you look in His tear-stained eyes
Knowing it's you He's thinking of?
Would you tell Him you're not ready to give Him your life?
Could you say you don't think you need His love?

Jesus is here with His arms open wide
You can see Him with your heart if you'd stop looking with your eyes
He's left it up to you, He's done all that He can
Is there any way you could say no to this Man?

Repeat Chorus

Thorns on His head, your life is in His hands
Is there any way you could say no to this Man?

Oh, is there any way you could say no to this Man?

You do anything you can
To get it in your hand

Lead: Jeremy Stroop

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Your love is more than my mind can fathom
More than I know
Your love is more than the highest heavens
More than forever

Before creation you knew my name
You formed my life in your hands
You breathed in me and I came to life
You heard my voice when I cried
You put the touch in my fingertips
You put a song on my lips
You touched my eyes and I see the world
My ears to hear Your words

Repeat Chorus

Before you knew me, you loved me so
When I had no place to go (you came to me)
You came to me when my way was lost
Your love flowed from a cross
You put warmth in a heart so cold
Made me a lamb in your fold (made me a lamb)
Gave me a purpose, a destiny
Lord you set me free

Repeat Chorus

Sometimes the future seems so unsure (my heart's afraid)
Sometimes my heart is afraid (I draw my comfort)
I draw my comfort from knowing you
Lord you are my friend

More (your love is more) than my mind can fathom
More than I know
Your (your love is more) love is more than the highest heavens
More than forever

I stand amazed in the presence of Jesus the Nazarene
And wonder how he could love me, a sinner condemned, unclean

For me it was in the garden He prayed 'Not my will, but thine'

He took my sins and my sorrows, He made them His very own
He bore the burden to Calvary and suffered and died alone

Chorus 1:
How marvelous! How wonderful!
And my song shall ever be
How marvelous (o how marvelous)! How wonderful!
Is my Savior's love for me

When, with the ransomed in glory, His face I at last shall see (His face at last you know I'll see)
Twill be my joy through the ages to sing of His love for me

(How marvelous!) O How marvelous! (how wonderful) O How wonderful!
