Here For You 01:19
1 My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus' name. Refrain: On Christ, the solid rock, I stand; all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand. 2 When darkness veils his lovely face, I rest on his unchanging grace; in every high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil. [Refrain] 3 His oath, his covenant, his blood support me in the whelming flood; when all around my soul gives way, he then is all my hope and stay. [Refrain] 4 When he shall come with trumpet sound, O may I then in him be found, dressed in his righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne. [Refrain]
Here is Love 03:48
1.Here is love, vast as the ocean Loving kindness as the flood When the prince of life, our ransom Shed for us his precious blood Chorus: Who his love will not remember Who can cease to sing his praise? He can never be forgotten Throughout heav’ns eternal days 2.On the mount of crucifixion Fountains opened deep and wide Through the floodgates of God's mercy Flowed a vast and gracious tide Chorus 2: Grace and love like mighty rivers Poured incessant from above And heavens peace and perfect justice Kissed a guilty world in love Bridge: Here is love (3x) 3. Let us all Your love accepting, Love You, ever all our days; Let us seek Your kingdom only Give our lives to be Your praise Chorus 3 You alone shall be our glory, Nothing in the world we see. You have cleansed and sanctified us, You alone have set us free.
Holy Spirit 05:53
Psalm 126 04:02
Our mouths they were filled, filled with laughter Our tongues they were loosed, loosed with joy Restore us, O Lord Restore us, O Lord Although we are weeping Lord, help us keep sowing The seeds of Your Kingdom For the day You will reap them Your sheaves we will carry Lord, please do not tarry All those who sow weeping Will go out with songs of joy The nations will say, “He has done great things!” The nations will sing songs of joy Restore us, O Lord Restore us, O Lord
You are my fullness, firm and steady; To lavish mercies, at the ready; Despite my wand’ring, Despite my weakness Unrelenting strength and goodness Chorus 1 Holy Holy God almighty All thy fullness here beside me Vs 2 You are my courage, truth and wisdom Guiding hand and purest vision Hope in fear, joy in victr’y endless song, hope and yearning Bridge I am breaking, you are building I am empty, you are filling In my silence, you are speaking In my dying, ever living Chorus 2 Holy Holy God almighty All thy fullness Here beside me Holy Holy Alle-lujah All thy fullness here among us
Fairer 06:21
Oh the wonders of your love The wonders of your mercy and love Oh the goodness of your grace The goodness of forgiveness and grace Verse 2 May your glory fill the earth Your glory cover all of this earth May your glory fill the earth As water covers all of the sea Bridge We hide beneath your wings We come with songs to you Chorus 1 Jesus you are fairer still Than the flowers of the field strength beyond the cedars of Lebanon It is Jesus who shines brighter Jesus who shines purer than all the angels heaven can boast Chorus 2 All the skies are telling of you brilliant light like our speech and each night the stars are knowledge on display You are brighter than the sunlight more lovely than the moonlight No place on earth is hidden from your name
Oh You Bring 04:09
Doxology 00:54


***Recorded live at the Gathering on November 22, 2015***
Every year at Hope College we produce a CD of songs that we have sung regularly in our weekly gatherings. This year we did something special and recorded our favorite songs in one night of worship. Thank you Hope College for such a great night of singing and praising our Lord!

These songs are a collection of old and new favorites, along with a couple of Hope-grown songs. Special thanks to Josh Banner for Fairer, Zach Pedigo for All Thy Fullness, and Jess Alldredge for the beautiful string quartet orchestrations. Thanks to the worship teams who give so much time to this ministry, to the tech teams for their peerless humor and service, to Paul Chamness for his over and above, to all the Campus ministry chaplains, staff, and student workers, and to the insanely awesome students that fill Dimnent Chapel every week with worshipers the Father loves.

Holy Spirit help us to never forget that Jesus is fairer than all!

Notes on the Title:
Fairer… The Bible is full of ecological language for the economy of God's kingdom. Words and phrases that catch and lift our imagination towards the great Triune God. The title for our annual worship CD is taken from a lovely song written by Josh Banner which draws its inspiration from the hymn Fairest Lord Jesus which is itself a meditation on the beauty of Jesus. Psalm 27:4 says, "One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.” We are blessed to worship four times a week in Dimnent chapel and I’m always amazed by the beauty of the worship that happens there - in song, prayer, preaching, table, and fellowship. - Bruce Benedict
