about

In titling this project Enduring, I had two things in mind.
Firstly, I have chosen songs that have endured the critique of the wider Christian community, some that have endured the test of time, and a couple of my own that I hope will also endure.

I have played each of these songs in church for worship and noted people’s response to them. Sometimes I can see people begin to give expression to their heart for God as we sing them, other times they tell me afterwards how impacting or meaningful a particular song is for them. These are songs that resonate with me personally, but also with my church family, and everywhere I go.

I wanted to record a handful of these songs for people to be able to take with them and play wherever they are during the week.

Secondly, and more importantly, is the reference to the enduring character of God. His goodness, His kindness, His mercy, His righteousness, His faithfulness, His steadfast love endures forever. These are statements echoed over and over throughout Scripture. This is a God we can count on, a God we can depend on: an unchanging God whose heart toward us is good and generous.

I love how Lamentations 3:22-24 expresses this:

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
The LORD is my portion," says my soul,
"therefore I will hope in him.”

My hope is that as you listen to these songs you’ll be reminded of that.

Mark

Track Name: How Great Is Our God
How Great Is Our God

The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice
All the earth rejoice

He wraps himself in Light, and darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice
Trembles at His voice

How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God

Age to age He stands, and time is in His hands
Beginning and the end
Beginning and the end

The Godhead Three in One, Father, Spirit, Son
The Lion and the Lamb
The Lion and the Lamb

Name above all names
Worthy of all praise
My heart will sing
How great is our God

Hallelujah, hallelujah
My heart will sing
How great is our God

Enduring (The Steadfast Love)

Be still my soul
And find your rest in God
Trust Him alone
His kindness is enduring
Enduring
It never fails

The steadfast love
Of the Lord never ceases
His mercies never come to an end
They’re new every morning
New every morning
Great is Thy faithfulness O Lord
Great is Thy faithfulness

Hold on to hope
For strength will rise again
Take heart and sing
His goodness is enduring
Enduring
It will not fail

Track Name: When I Survey The Wondrous Cross
When I Survey The Wondrous Cross

VERSE 1
When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride

VERSE 2
Forbid it Lord that I should boast
Save in the death of Christ my God
All the vain things that charm me most
I sacrifice them to His blood

VERSE 3
See from His head His hands His feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down
Did e'er such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown

VERSE 4
Were the whole realm of nature mine
That were an offering far too small
Love so amazing so divine
Demands my soul my life my all
Demands my soul my life my all

Track Name: Untitled Hymn (Come To Jesus)
Untitled Hymn (Come To Jesus)

Chris Rice

VERSE 1
Weak and wounded sinner
Lost and left to die
O raise your head for Love is passin' by
Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus and live

VERSE 2
Now your burden's lifted
And carried far away
And precious blood has washed away the stain
So sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus and live

VERSE 3
Like a newborn baby
Don't be afraid to crawl
And remember when you walk sometimes we fall
So fall on Jesus
Fall on Jesus
Fall on Jesus and live

VERSE 4
Sometimes the way is lonely
And steep and filled with pain
So if your sky is dark and pours the rain
Then cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus and live

VERSE 5
O and when the love spills over
And music fills the night
And when you can't contain your joy inside
Then dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus and live

VERSE 6
And with your final heartbeat
Kiss the world good-bye
Then go in peace and laugh on glory's side
And fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus and live
