Track Name: Poor Wayfaring Stranger
I am a poor wayfaring stranger
Traveling through this world of woe
So wrought with fear and toil and danger
Still waging war against my soul

I've spent long years in lawless turmoil
Hostile in mind, full of evil deeds
Yet God had chosen me for rescue
Ransomed in mercy, my soul He keeps

He has delivered me from darkness!
My faithless heart has been redeemed!
His Divine nature defeats corruption
Hidden in Christ, I am set free

His kindness draws me to repentance
His Spirit shows in Jesus Christ
The only God, ruler and father
Brought me from death to eternal life

And now a poor wayfaring stranger
Can overcome this world of woe
Bearing His name, heir of salvation
Approach with joy His glorious throne!
Track Name: Leaning on the Everlasting Arms
What a fellowship, what a joy divine,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
What a blessedness, what a peace is mine,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.

Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms;
Leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms.

O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
O how bright the path grows from day to day,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.

What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
I have blessed peace with my Lord so near,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.
Track Name: Alas! And Did My Savior Bleed
Thus might I hide my blushing face

While His dear cross appears

Alas! And did my Savior bleed

And did my Sovereign die?
Would He devote that sacred head

For such a worm as I?

Thy body slain, sweet Jesus, Thine
And bathed in its own blood
While the firm mark of wrath divine
His soul in anguish stood

Well might the sun in darkness hide

And shut his glories in

When Christ, the mighty Maker died
For man the creature’s sin

Was it for crimes that I had done
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity! grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!

But drops of grief can ne’er repay
The debt of love I owe:
Here, Lord, I give my self away
’Tis all that I can do.
Track Name: It Is Well (With My Soul)
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come
Let this blest assurance control
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate
And hath shed His own blood for my soul

It is well (it is well), with my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well, with my soul

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought
My sin, not in part but the whole
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend
Even so, it is well with my soul
Track Name: Lower Than Angels
He came in our flesh to share in our strife
Living with our plight He gave up His life
By His obedience conquered death's hold
Redeeming God's children the ones in His fold

We know not all things subjected to Him
But He was made lower than all seraphim
Suffering He bore when He lived in our midst
The One through whom all things were made and exist

Seen lower than angels He broke through the pall
Crowned with glory and honor He is ruler of all
Seen lower than angels while we were adrift
Crowned with glory and honor salvation His gift

Glory and honor, glory and honor
Son of Man came to redeem one and all
Track Name: Zion (So Give Thanks to the Lord)
You will say on that day:
I will give thanks to the Lord,
Though you were angry with me,
Your anger turned away,
and you comforted me

So give thanks to the Lord, and call on His name,
Shout, and sing for joy, all you daughters of Zion,
He is with you now, the Son of God
He is with you now, the Son of God

Behold, my God is salvation; I will not be afraid;
The Lord, my God, is my song; I will sing of all He’s done,
and make everything known

I will sing His name! I will sing His name!
I will sing His name for all the world and everyone!
Sing His name! I will sing His name!
I will sing His name for all the world and everyone!
Sing His name! I will sing His name!
I will Sing His name for all the world and everyone!
