Dance| Living Hope

How great the chasm that lay between us, How high the mountain I could not climb

In desperation, I turned to heaven, And spoke your name into the night

Then through the darkness, Your loving kindness, Tore through the shadows of my soul

The work is finished, the end is written, Jesus Christ, my living hope

Who could imagine so great a mercy

What heart could fathom such boundless grace?

The God of ages stepped down from glory, 

To wear my sin and bear my shame

The cross has spoken, I am forgiven, 

The king of kings calls me His own, 

Beautiful savior, I'm yours forever, 

Jesus Christ, my living hope

Hallelujah, praise the one who set me free

Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me

You have broken every chain

There's salvation in your name

Jesus Christ, my living hope

Then came the morning that sealed the promise, 

Your buried body began to breathe, 

Out of the silence, the roaring lion, declared the grave has no claim on me, 

Then came the morning that sealed the promise, 

Your buried body began to breathe, 

Out of the silence, the roaring lion, declared the grave has no claim on me,

Dance| How Great is Our God

The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty, Let all the Earth rejoice, All the Earth rejoice

He wraps himself in light, And darkness tries to hide, And trembles at His voice

Trembles at His voice, 

Age to age, He stands, And time is in His hands, Beginning and the end, Beginning and the end

The Godhead Three in One, Father Spirit Son, The Lion and the Lamb, The Lion and the Lamb

How great is our God, sing with me, How great is our God, and all will see

How great, how great is our God

Name above all names (Name above all names)

Worthy of our praise (Worthy of worthy)

My heart will sing, How great is our God
