Online Concert Lyrics

29/01/2021

Welcome to my second online concert! Thanks so much for buying a ticket and I'm so excited to spend time worshipping with you all. The theme of the evening is "hope" and I'm including some older songs I've written, some new songs and a couple of hymns. There's only one song I've included that we sang at the last online concert so everything will be fresh (I'm even in the dining room this time too- hehe!) Here are the lyrics for the evening...

1.Maranatha

 

I believe You are the hope

That this world’s crying out to know

I believe You’re in control

Though death, disease and conflict grow

 

I believe You have a plan

To shine Your gospel light anew 

I believe that You’re alive

So Jesus let Your Church arise

 

We believe you will return

You’ll banish death forever

We’ll fall down at your throne 

Praising You our Saviour

 

We believe that You’re the One

That all creation longs for

We fall down on our knees, crying;

Come Lord Jesus, come again we pray

Olly Knight 2020

2.Like A Waterfall

 

Your love, like a waterfall 

Washes over me, washes over me

Your hope, bringing light to the dark

Your peace, in the midst of fear 

It surrounds me, it surrounds me

Your word is a lamp to my feet

 

Your love is all, I ever need

Your love is freedom from all of my sin 

Your love is Christ, nailed to a tree 

Your love has found me and welcomed me in 

Your love has won me

 

Your grace, like a mighty wave 

Crashes over me, crashes over me

Your truth, is renewing my mind

Your power, bringing death to life 

Breaking every chain, breaking every chain

Your name, is the name above all 

 

We adore You

Eddi Taylor, Andi Gardner, Megan Freeman & Olly Knight 2020

3. I Will Exalt You

I will exalt You O Lord

I will choose to praise Your name      

For You have lifted me out of the depths

You've brought me up out of the grave

 

We sing to You Lord, with heavens song

We praise Your holy name

For Your anger lasts a moment

But Your favour lasts a lifetime

Sorrow may remain for one night         

But rejoicing comes to those who trust

In Your unfailing love

How I love You  

How I need You

Jesus, I give You my life, again

Olly Knight 2003

4. I Stand Amazed

 

I stand amazed in the presence

Of Jesus the Nazarene.

And wonder how He could love me,

A sinner condemned, unclean.

 

How marvelous, How wonderful

And my song will ever be

How marvelous, How wonderful

Is my Saviour's love for me.

 

He took my sins and my sorrows

He made them his very own

He bore the burden to Calvary

He suffered and died alone

 

When with ransomed in glory

His face I at last shall see

Twill be joy through the ages

To sing of His love of me

Charles H Gabriel

5. My Treasure

 

Jesus, priceless treasure, source of purest pleasure

Son of God, Your beauty never fades

This World may offer wisdom, or tempt me with it’s riches

But I desire the pearl of greatest price

 

You're my treasure, my reward
My spirit sings, my heart adores
My delight is Jesus Christ
My greatest prize, my treasure

 

Jesus priceless treasure, You love us without measure

Lamb of God, You gave your life for us

Giving grace to sinners, offering forgiveness
You share with us the riches of Your life

Olly Knight, Laurence Turpin, Simon Brading & Jonny Ward 2013

6.You are The Christ

 

Come and see the King

Through the pages of his Word

The God who walked on this earth

To serve and not be served

 

Crowds would gather to see

As the blind were given sight

And hear the power of his voice

As He raised the dead to life

 

We believe your Word is true

Your Spirit’s opened our hearts to You

 

You’re our Saviour

We’ll forever sing Your praise

Jesus, name above all other names

Messiah, Son of God with power to save

Lord we believe, You are the Christ!

 

Come and see the man 

Who wore a crown of thorns

As He died on the cross

the weight of sin he bore

 

Now The author of life 

Is lifeless where he lays

But see the power of God

As He rises from the grave!

 

We will tell of You 

All our hope in you

As we share your love speak through your Word 

Spirit breathe anew

With our faith renewed

May this nation turn to follow You

Olly Knight & Tom James 2018​​

7.Fountain of Goodness

 

Fountain of goodness, beauty, ever-streaming love,

Pouring out every blessing on your perfect Son;

Father, before all things, your joy was found in Him.

 

Radiant Light of Heaven, ever-cherished Son,

Knowing such perfect closeness, with your Father one;

Jesus, You came to us, to share all that was Yours.

 

Our God is good! He's shown such love.

Now adopted in the Son, to You we come,

And we delight in You our God. 

You loved us first and now our hearts are Yours.

 

Giver of life, for ever resting on the Son,

Bringing the joy of knowing all the Father's love,

Spirit, You've made us Christ's; now we're as loved as Him

Olly Knight & Mike Reeves 2012

8.Because of the Cross

There is a place that we can go

A hill where perfect love was shown

Where mercy triumphs over sin

We stand forgiven by the King

Because of the cross,

You took our guilt and shame,

Now we’re born again.

By the blood of the Lamb,

You’ve made a way for us,

You have paid the price,

Because of the cross.

Our King will always bear the scars,

Your hands and feet forever marred

When we are gathered round the throne

We’ll sing to You and You alone!

I see you hanging there

Your body on the tree

Yours is the greatest love

Yours is the victory

Ben Daintree, Olly Knight & Geoff Maile 2019

9.You Reign

By Your word the heavens were made

The planets were formed

Your glory displayed 

As You spoke the Earth took its form

You breathed all to life

Creation was born

 

You reign, You reign

You’re reigning over all

You’re reigning over all

 

You stepped down to serve and to save

You laid down your life

Your cross made a way

Then You rose in glorious might 

The battle is won

Our King is alive

 

The oceans will roar

And the mountains will quake

All the heavens cry out

At the sound of Your name

Kings will bow down 

As the world stands in awe

All creation will sing

“Jesus Christ is the Lord of all”

Olly Knight, Josh Rayner & Sam Beardon 2020

10.Great is Thy Faithfulness 

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father,

There is no shadow of turning with Thee;

Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not

As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

 

Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!

Morning by morning new mercies I see;

All I have needed Thy hand hath provided

Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

 

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,

Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,

Join with all nature in manifold witness

To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

 

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,

Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;

Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,

Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

William M. Runyan 

11.Father of Mercies

Father of mercies, the God of all comfort

He draws alongside us in times of distress

If ever we feel that our God has abandoned

We look to the cross where for us Jesus bled

 

All our hope is found in You

You’ve delivered us from death to life

All our hope is found in You

Father of mercies, God of my life

 

Father of mercies, the wellspring of kindness

He comforts his people and lifts up their heads

Renewed by the depths of our Father’s compassion 

We offer His love and the hope we possess

 

We share in the sufferings of Jesus our Saviour

He knows all our sorrows and shares our laments

Wherever He leads us this comfort will follow

We trust in the Saviour who raises the dead

We trust in the Saviour who raises the dead
