I Surrender
© 2011 New Creation Church

[Verse 1]
You love me as I am
Chose me even when You knew
I was tainted by sin
Compassion so divine
Flowed from deep within
Your heart
Mercy opened my eyes

[Pre-Chorus 1]
To a love so strong, so deep, so wide
It embraced my soul
But demanded Your life

[Chorus]
I surrender, surrender my heart
to the greatness of Your love
I surrender, surrender my heart
To the fullness of Your grace

[Verse 2]
Now holy hands I raise
My sins have been erased
I stand justified by Your grace
Accepted as Your own
An heir to heaven’s throne
In awe, I am yielded and still

[Pre-Chorus 2]
For a love so strong, so deep, so wide
Saw through my disgrace
And has set me on high

Surrender to His love. Stop chasing after man’s love, which does not satisfy the deepest longing. Let Him love you. His love, His perfect, unconditional, neverending love, satisfies the deepest longing of your soul.

Surrender to His grace. Stop using your self-effort. Stop trying to earn your way in life. Surrender to His grace, and let Him give to you, let Him bless you, let Him supply you.

Christianity is not about doing things for God. It’s not about trying to please God. It’s not about man giving to God. It’s about receiving His love and grace. “Those who receive the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.” (Rom 5:17)

It’s all about Jesus and His finished work at the cross, and Him working in our lives today, on the foundation of His finished work. It’s all about Him.

It’s all about Jesus.

Forgiven Much

Forgiven Much
© 2011 New Creation Church

[Verse 1]
Jesus, You are my King, You’re my King
Lamb of God, You’re my sin offering
There is none who would die for my gain
You alone made this selfless exchange

[Pre-Chorus]
For Your love will never fail
Your love will never fail

[Chorus]
Now and ever more, I’ll say
You are my righteousness
My life is in Your hands, in Your hands
Now and ever more, I’ll say
I am forgiven much
Your mercy knows no end, knows no end
It knows no end

[Verse 2]
Lord I call on Your name, on Your name
You’ve removed all my sins, all my shame
By Your grace, in Your arms I am found
Dearly loved, and with goodness, I’m crowned

“Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no twater for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head. You gave Me no tkiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in. You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant oil.

Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.”” - (Luke 7:47)

You Come To Me

You Come To Me
© 2010 New Creation Church

[Verse 1]
Before Your feet I bow
Before Your throne of grace
There I surrender all
Lose myself in Your embrace

[Pre-chorus]
You come to me with words of hope
My strength is renewed again

[Chorus]
I praise Your holy name
With all I am, I bless You, Lord
For You have done it all
For all You are, I thank You, Lord

[Verse 2]
Your lack upon the cross
Translates to my reward
Though crushed I’ll not despair
For Your peace shall meet me there

[Bridge]
Let all that is within me, Lord
Bless Your holy name

“BLESS the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!” - (Psalm 103:1)

Managed to jot this down today in 3rd service. I was jotting this down halfway then my iPod touch ran out of battery. Like, completely. Haha. So had to rely on my sermon notebook.
