Track Name: You're the Lion of Judah
You're the Lion Of Judah
words: Paul Wilbur/benjamin brainard
Arranged by: benjamin brainard more info: www.benjaminbrainard.com

You're the Lion of Judah, the Lamb who was slain
You ascended to heaven and evermore will reign
At the end of the age when the earth You reclaim
You will gather the nations before You
And the eyes of all men will be fixed on the Lamb
Who was crucified
With wisdom and mercy and justice You'll reign
At Your Fa---ther's side

And the angels will cry, "Hail the Lamb!"
Who was slain for the world, "Rule in power!"
And the earth will reply, "You shall reign,
"As the King of all Kings and the Lord of all Lords"

There's a shield in our hand and a sword at our side
There's a fire in our spirits that cannot be denied
'Cause the Father has told us for these you have died
For the nations that gather before you
And the ears of all men need to hear of the Lamb
Who was crucified
Who descended below yet was raised up to reign
At His Father's side
Track Name: A Beautiful Inheritance
a Beautiful inheritance
words/music: Benjamin Brainard

I have a beautiful inheritance, in you
You took all I was and changed it, and made me new

The cross you bore for me, in my place, displays
A steadfast love so immense to me, to me

How could I ever praise you
With all I know that you’re due?

But I will sing out All glory to my king
You made this cold dead heart come alive and bring
Every breath I have, Every day you give
May I live to worship you, may I live to worship you.

Oh set my eyes to gaze and wonder, at you
And so reflect your glory outward, in truth
Track Name: All Hail the Lamb
All Hail the Lamb
Words/Music: Benjamin Brainard
more info: www.benjaminbrainard.com

All hail the lamb whose blood was spilled to justify the law
That otherwise would come condemn for every single flaw
No condemnation will I fear, my hope is in the One
Who bore my guilt and died for me that I might know real love

Vs. 2
The love of God is full, not free, for precious was the cost
Displayed for all humanity on a redeeming cross
Rejoice, O soul, Rejoice at once! For this was not the end
Jesus arose, Defeated death and we will reign with Him

Hallelujah! Grace alone flows to me from your throne
Hallelujah! Grace is all my heart will ever know

Deep grace and mercy are all I own, when wrath all I deserve
Let every nation, every tongue come take God at His Word
That for a time there still remains forgiveness for your debt
So come o’ pleasure, come and rest on God’s great tenderness

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
O my soul Rejoice, O my soul rejoice, rejoice!
Track Name: How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds
How Sweet the name of Jesus Sounds
Words: John Newton/Benjamin Brainard
Music: benjamin brainard

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds in a believer’s ear!
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds, and drives away his fear
It makes the wounded spirit whole and calms the troubled mind
Pure manna to the hungry soul, and to the weary, rest.

Dear name! The rock on which I build, my shield, and hiding place;
My never failing treasure filled with boundless stores of grace.
Oh king of comfort, comfort now, remind me I’m your child
And when earth’s sorrows come and go, may I ever lift my eyes

Jesus my Shepherd, Brother, Friend, My Prophet, Priest, and King
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End, accept the praise I bring.
Weak is the effort of my heart and cold my warmest thought;
But when I see you as you are, may I praise you as I ought

Till then would I your love proclaim with every fleeting breath;
And may the music of your name refresh my soul till death.
Track Name: Worthy, Worthy is the Lamb
Worthy, Worthy is the Lamb!
Words/Music: benjamin brainard

Out of nothing you made everything, You spoke and things came to be
Every star in every universe, Every single life on Earth

In my shame you came to rescue me
To sow a heart that loves your purity
Everything you said is coming true,
Lord you’re making all things new

Oh God you have been merciful to me
Oh give me faith to trust the unseen

Worthy, worthy is the Lamb slain to make men free
You light the darkness calm the storm and make the wicked flee
You are help to the helpless
You are love to the loveless
Yes! My God has been fully merciful to me!

In this life you never ever leave
Our ever present help in time of need
Every trial and every joy You’re there
To show your mighty covenantal care
Track Name: I Hear the Words of Love
I Hear the Words of Love
More info: www.benjaminbrainard.com
Words: Horatius Bonar/benjamin brainard
Music: Henry Gauntlett/benjamin brainard
I hear the words of love, I gaze upon the blood,
I see the mighty sacri----fice, And I have peace with God.

'Tis everlasting peace! Sure as Jehovah's Name,
'Tis stable as His steadfast throne, For evermore the same.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah for my God’s name is Love
He ever lives to keep the ones brought to Him through His Son

My love is ofttimes low, My joy still ebbs and flows,
But peace with God remains the same, No change my Savior knows.

I change, He changes not; The Christ can never die;
His love, not mine, the resting-place, His word, not mine, the tie.
Track Name: Hope has a Name
Hope has a Name
Words/Music: Benjamin Brainard
more info: www.benjaminbrainard.com

Will your grace run out today when my eyes are brimmed with shame
For the things that I have done, and yet to do

Will your steadfast love be slow, slow to comfort weakened bones
Tired of struggles that come and go, but Lord I know

Hope has a name; a guilty soul has a place
To confess our sin in full, and to partake of mercy’s rest
And to partake of mercy’s rest

Will you run and greet your child, covered up in muck and mire
Sore with wounds of heart and mind, of every kind.

Let all Christians join and sing
Of our savior Christ the King
Who restores the wounded soul
Track Name: Awake, Oh Sinner Come!
Awake, Oh Sinner Come!
Words/Music: Benjamin Brainard
more info: www.benjaminbrainard.com

Children come and sing at the wedding feast where the bridegroom is the Lord!
Bring the invitation, scarlet red, come away and be reborn
Leave you dirty clothes stained with guilt, purest linen now awaits
For the lamb has come to reconcile, so repent and come in faith

Awake O sinner, come For the Savior Has appeared
Shout the gospels mighty song until all the nations hear
For His promises are sure, and His covenant He Keeps
So with all our heart and soul let’s proclaim the king of kings

Church arise and run to the battlefield where the bridegroom wages war
And armed with faith in the God who saves, let’s be bold and ever sure
Put to death the sin that steals your joy, in Christ we are reborn!
For no eye has seen nor mind conceived what awaits the saints of God
Track Name: We're Adopted
We’re Adopted
Words/Music: benjamin brainard
more info:www.benjaminbrainard.com

In fervent trust we lift our eyes to a faithful father’s gaze
In blessed comfort recognize the gospels’ pow’r to save
Even though the law has beat us down and our thirst was fixed on ill
You saw our brokenness abound, and sought to rescue still

Vs. 2
It’s not enough to simply say: “your guilt has been washed clean”
But through the blood of sacrifice, your Son you offered me
That I would know the depths of woe my sin would ever claim
And I would know the depths of grace,
Your truth poured out through pain

We’re adopted! Holy Father, we’re adopted Christ has come
We cry Holy! Abba Father, orphaned saints in you are sons
Oh God, you alone are good.

Oh spirit come remind again that I’m a child of God
Adopted in your family and heirs with your dear Son
And without fear may we console the dead and dying world
The lost can come and find a home and know their rest is sure!
Track Name: Lord, You are Good
Lord, You are good
Words/Music: benjamin brainard
more info: www.benjaminbrainard.com
Lord you are near the Brocken and plagued
The hurting and the shamed
You leave not your own to perish away
And tremble in the grave

Darkness I sought, how bitter the taste,
But God in His sovereign love
Took on my sin and entered within
To sow a heart of love

Lord you are good, of this I am sure.
Your promises never fail.
Stir once again a faith undisturbed,
A trust in your perfect plan

Lord be my guide when trials I endure,
Remind me who’s child I am
Soon we’ll stand and sing a song to the Lamb
Of the God who rescues man
Track Name: My Shepherd will supply my need
My Shepherd will supply my need
Isaac Watts
Arranged by: benjamin brainard
more info: www.benjaminbrainard.com
My Shepherd will supply my need: Jehovah is His Name;
In pastures fresh He makes me feed, Beside the living stream.
He brings my wandering spirit back When I forsake His ways,
And leads me, for His mercy’s sake, In paths of truth and grace.
When I walk through the shades of death Thy presence is my stay;
One word of Thy supporting breath Drives all my fears away.
Thy hand, in sight of all my foes, Doth still my table spread;
My cup with blessings overflows, Thine oil anoints my head.
The sure provisions of my God Attend me all my days;
O may Thy house be my abode, And all my work be praise.
There would I find a settled rest, While others go and come;
No more a stranger, nor a guest, But like a child at home.
Track Name: Your Love Reforms
Your Love reforms
Words/Music: benjamin brainard
more info: www.benjaminbrainard.com
Father of mercy, lord of the Lost
You sent your Son to cover the cost
Through blood and anguish our sin you placed
On sinless shoulders to love display
Vs. 2
Your loves’ abiding constant and true
Invading dead hearts to make them new
Your loves’ sustaining through every storm
Never abating, your love reforms
Blessed Jesus You awaken us to the glory of our God
Through your sacrifice we have come to life
To behold our savior’s love
Let all who see us come believe that God through Christ has set us free.
Vs. 3
Your love is patient, it is so kind
It’s everlasting and oh it’s mine
Lord give me faith now to run my course
And to display how my life is yours
