Relentless love Tinker/Chester 1. How many chances should we give? How many times should we forgive When someone else has done us wrong? Well, listen as the Saviour speaks Explaining holy mathematics For mercy flows, flows on and on As far as the east is from the west So far has the Lord removed our sin from us To Infinity and Beyond Spans God’s relentless love You’ll never find the end Of the grace that’s shown Through his Son (for mercy flows, flows on and on) 2. How many chances does God give? How many times does he forgive When you and I have done him wrong? Well, listen as the Saviour says “For every sin there is more grace For mercy flows, flows on and on” As far as the east is from the west So far has the Lord removed our sin from us [Chorus]

It’s All About Grace Tinker 1. Your works won’t do it (hoo, ha) Your money won’t do it (ka-ching, ka-ching) You cannot earn God’s love Your tears won’t do it (boo-hoo) Your singing won’t do it (la-la-la) You cannot earn God’s love It’s all about grace, grace, grace He freely gives to us There’s nothing we can do To earn God’s love It’s all about grace, grace, grace And then when we think he’s done There’s loads more grace he gives to us Through Jesus Christ, his Son 2. Your beauty won’t do it (look at me) Your prayers won’t do it (amen) You cannot earn God’s love Your fame won’t do it (I’m so amazing) Your family won’t do it (aren’t they lovely) You cannot earn God’s love [Chorus]

Great Land 03:56
Great Land (with Laurie Leigh Allport) Tinker/Cox/Chester A great land A great nation A great name A great blessing [repeat] His promises are true He’ll always follow through His promises fulfilled Through Jesus Christ 1. Now Abraham was old and grey his youth had slipped away There was no way he could see to have a family But God the Lord had other plans and picked out Abraham For all that God says he will do will certainly come true For God is gonna make for you [Chorus] 2. Now Sarah thought the words God spoke were just a cruel joke There was no way she could see to have a family But God had overheard her laugh and told her to hold fast For all that God says he will do will certainly come true For God is gonna make for you [Chorus] [Solo] [Chorus]

Jacob Had 12 Sons Tinker Jacob had 12 sons 12 sons Jacob had 12 sons 12 sons Reuben, Simeon and Levi Judah, Dan and Naphtali Gad, Asher, Issachar and Zebulun Joseph and Benjamin

As For Me and My House (with Ron Block) Tinker/Chester As for me and my house We will serve the Lord Serve, serve the Lord 1. Leave the gods that you have served for they will lead you away Trust the Lord who rescued you and join me as I say 2. Still today we turn from God we want to be number one But Jesus died to rescue you so you could be his sons (and daughters!) 3. It can be hard to follow God with all your friends saying ‘no’ But God is near; we’re not alone He helps us get … set … go!

This is Faith Cox/Tinker 1. Consider Abraham Trusting God’s word So he moved home Based on what God said Consider Sarah Childless but trusting Enjoyed God’s blessing She became a mum 2. Consider Moses Facing Pharaoh But knowing he could Trust in the Lord Consider Rahab Who heard of the Lord’s deeds So she put all Of her faith in him We are sure of What we hope for And certain of what we don’t see This is faith 3. Consider Gideon Barak and Samson Jephthah and David The prophet Samuel Who all through faith stood And faced danger For they knew that God’s word is true 4. Consider Jesus Giving his life With his eyes set On the joy ahead Consider Jesus When life gets tough Keep on running For he’s led the way [Chorus] [Bridge] Think of all those who’ve gone before How they have trusted in the Lord And with that cloud of witnesses Let us remove what hinders us So fix your mind on Christ above Who gave his life for you in love He’s the perfecter of our faith So we can run the race by grace

There’s Nothing You Can Do Chester/Tinker 1. Goliath was extremely tall And built as solid as a wall Goliath wore the latest bling while David had a sling Goliath said, “I am the best I’ll conquer you like all the rest Your God cannot deliver you There’s nothing you can do” But David said, “I’m not afraid the power of God will be displayed” A stone flew at the giant’s head and left Goliath dead 2. Sennacherib, Assyria’s king had gone round looting everything And now his army camped before Jerusalem’s front door Sennacherib said, “I am the best I’ll conquer you like all the rest Your God cannot deliver you There’s nothing you can do” But Hezekiah prayed to God “Don’t let the nations mock your love” Next morning when he rose from bed the enemy was dead 3. Now all of us have done what’s wrong and though we think we’re big and strong we’re tangled in our selfish ways which do not bring God praise And so our stinking sin says, “I am the best I’ll conquer you like all the rest Your God cannot deliver you There’s nothing you can do” But Christ has died for you and me to bear our guilt and set us free For just when it seemed death would reign Jesus rose again There’s nothing you can do there’s nothing you can do But Jesus died and rose again and he can rescue you

But God 04:44
But God Tinker/Chester 1. Do you feel like you are lost? Do you feel your hope is crushed? Do you feel that you are all alone? Do you cry your tears dry? Do you want to run and hide? When nothing’s left then hear the Spirit say… But God is my strength But God goes ahead But God intends it all for your good But God will never forget But God has given you rest But God has shown us his love in sending Christ 2. Do you feel like giving in? Do you feel you’re lost in sin? Do you feel that you cannot be loved? Do you feel that hate has won? Do you ask where God has gone? When nothing’s left then hear the Spirit say… [Chorus] Fear not for God The King Loves you [repeat] Fear not (take heart) for God (dear child) The King (your Father) Loves you (repeat) [Chorus]

Everyone Seems Normal (’Til You Know Them) Tinker 1. Everyone seems normal till you know them Everybody seems to be ok They walk around town without even a frown As they bat each care away (Jolly good shot there!) 2. Everyone seems normal till you know them It makes you feel odd it’s true But it doesn’t take long before their mask is gone It turns out they’re as strange as you! Nobody is normal We’re all a little strange We each have cracks That show our brokenness But God will make us normal For all those he has won Cos one day he’ll transform us To be like his Son! 3. Everyone seems normal till you know them But take a moment and you’ll see In each one you’ll find so do be kind A fragile person just like me! [Chorus] 4. God knows no-one’s normal for he knows them Nothing that you do surprises him He knows just what you’re like, yet still sent Jesus Christ He loves you as a child of the King

God vs Baal 02:24
God vs Baal Chester/Tinker 1. Elijah called on Israel to make a proper choice to choose the God that they would serve and listen to his voice ‘Let’s build an altar, get some stones and place them in a stack Then call upon each God in turn and see who answers back With fire With fire With fire Fire from above! 2. The dodgy prophets cried to Baal to come and pass the test But no-one heard and no-one came to answer their request ‘Your god’s asleep,’ Elijah joked ‘or has no time for you Perhaps he’s on his holidays or sat upon the loo!’ For nothing came down from above
No sign that Baal was there For Baal is not the living God And cannot hear your prayer 3. At last it was Elijah’s turn to call upon the LORD But first he soaked the sacrifice to make it extra hard Then God sent fire from the sky which even burnt the stones The people cried, ‘The LORD is God and he is God alone’ For fire came down from above A sign which did reveal The living God, the God of love The God who’s really real’
17.
May My Mind 03:01
May My Mind (with Ron Block) Tinker/Chester May my mind be filled with the word of life May my eyes be fixed on the glory of Christ May my heart be stilled as I rest in you So that Christ is seen in all I do 1. When my mind is muddled and confused My head is numb and my heart is bruised I’m battered by all the quarrels and fights I fill my thoughts with the word of life   [Chorus]   2. When I’m feeling stressed, plagued by doubt I don't close my mind or empty it out I look up and see, the beauty of Christ I fill my thoughts with the word of life [Chorus]

66 Books (About Him) Part I Tinker There are 66 books in the Bible 66 books about Him That’s 66 books about Jesus So come along and meet the King 1. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus Numbers, Deuteronomy Joshua and Judges lead to Ruth The great grandmother of the King [Chorus] 2. 1 and 2 Samuel, 1 and 2 Kings 1 and 2 Chronicles Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther and Job The Psalms can be sung by all [Chorus] 3. Proverbs and Ecclesiastes And the songs of Solomon Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations Show us that we need God’s Son [Chorus] 4. Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea, Joel Amos, Obadiah Jonah, Micah, Nahum and Habakuk Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi!

There’s a Party Coming Soon Chester/Cox/Tinker 1. There’s a party coming soon with lots of food to eat There’s a party coming soon and our joy will be complete 2. There’s a party coming soon satisfaction guaranteed There’s a party coming soon It will meet your every need You don’t need a train You don’t need a car You don’t need a plane Like some superstar You don’t need your party clothes Just come as you are The price has been paid The party’s coming soon… 3. There’s a party coming soon and the entrance price is free There’s a party coming soon Christ has paid for you and me You don’t need a train You don’t need a car You don’t need a plane Like some superstar [repeat] [Final time] You don’t need a train You don’t need a car The price has been paid Just come as you are

Pigs in the Mud Tinker We wallow like pigs in the mud We wallow like pigs in the mud We roll all our worries Around in our heads We squelch in our fears like we’re Pigs in mud beds We wallow like pigs in the mud We wallow like pigs in the mud But Jesus comes to us And lifts our heads up To rest in our King And get out of the mud!
