Whom Shall I Fear?
(God of Angel Armies)

– Chris Tomlin

Verse
You hear me when I call
You are my morning song
Though darkness fills the night
It cannot hide the light
Whom shall I fear?

Verse
You crush the enemy
Underneath my feet
You are my sword and shield 
though troubles linger still
Whom shall I fear?

Chorus
I know Who goes before me
I know who stands behind
The God of angel armies 
is always by my side
The One Who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine
The God of angel armies 
is always by my side

Verse
My strength is in your name
For you alone can save
You will deliver me 
Yours is the victory
Whom shall I fear?
Whom shall I fear!

Chorus
I know Who goes before me
I know who stands behind
The God of angel armies
is always by my side
The One Who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine
The God of angel armies
is always by my side

Bridge
And nothing formed against me 
shall stand
You hold the whole world 
in Your hands
I’m holding on 
to your promises
You are faithful 
You are faithful

And nothing formed against me
shall stand
You hold the whole world
in Your hands
I’m holding on
to your promises
You are faithful
You are faithful
You are faithful


Chorus
I know Who goes before me
I know who stands behind
The God of angel armies
is always by my side
The One Who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine
The God of angel armies
is always by my side [x2]

Tonight’s Message

Ryan Grube

Run to the Father

Cody Carnes

Verse 1
I’ve carried a burden
For to long on my own
I wasn’t created
To bear it alone
I hear your invitation
To let it all go
I see it now
I’m laying it down
And I know that I need You

Chorus
I run to the Father 
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding 
no reason to wait
My heart needs a surgeon 
my soul needs a friend
So I’ll run to the Father 
again and again and again 
and again and again
Oh ~

Verse 2
You saw my condition
Had a plan from the start
Your son for redemption
The price for my heart
And I don’t have a context
For that kind of love
I don’t understand
I can’t comprehend
All I know is I need You

Chorus
I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding
no reason to wait
My heart needs a surgeon
my soul needs a friend
So I’ll run to the Father
again and again and again
and again and again
Oh ~ (again and again) Oh~

Bridge
My heart has been in Your sights
Long before my first breath
Running into Your arms
Is running to life from death
I feel this rush 
deep in my chest
Your mercy is calling now
Just as I am You pull me in
And I know I need You now

My heart has been in Your sights
Long before my first breath
Running into Your arms
Is running to life from death
I feel this rush 
deep in my chest
Your mercy is calling now
Just as I am You pull me in
And I know I need You now

Chorus
I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding
no reason to wait
My heart needs a surgeon
my soul needs a friend
So I’ll run to the Father
again and again and again
and again and again
Oh ~
(again and again)
Oh, oh, oh

I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I’m done with the hiding
No reason to wait
My heart found a surgeon
My soul found a friend
So I’ll run to the Father again
And again and again and again and again
Oh, oh, oh, oh / Again and again
Oh, oh, oh, oh / Again and again
See a Victory

Elevation Worship

Verse
The weapon may be formed 
but it won’t prosper
When the darkness falls 
it won’t prevail
Cause the God I serve 
knows only how to triumph
My God will never fail
My God will never fail

Chorus
I’m gonna see a victory, 
I'm gonna see a victory
For the battle 
belongs to You Lord
I’m gonna see a victory, 
I’m gonna see a victory
For the battle 
belongs to you Lord

Verse
There’s power in the 
mighty name of Jesus
Every war he wages 
he will win
No, I’m not backing down 
from any giant
I know how this story ends
I know how this story ends

Chorus
I’m gonna see a victory, 
I'm gonna see a victory
For the battle 
belongs to You Lord
I’m gonna see a victory, 
I’m gonna see a victory
For the battle 
belongs to you Lord

Bridge
You take what the enemy 
meant for evil 
and you turn it for good! 
You turn it for good! [x4]

Chorus
I’m gonna see a victory, 
I'm gonna see a victory
For the battle 
belongs to You Lord
I’m gonna see a victory, 
I’m gonna see a victory
For the battle 
belongs to you Lord
