There Is No Greater Crown

Not in my own righteousness,
But the righteousness of Your Son
Not in empty promises,
But the truth of what He’s done
Not in my brokenness,
But the fullness of His life
I have no holiness
But the holiness of Christ

It is mine
I am Yours
It is mine
Because I am Yours

Oh, the Love of Christ
He was born to die
So that we are reborn
To claim His life
He who laid Himself down
Has lifted me up
There is no greater crown
Than Jesus’ love

Not in what my hands can make
Not my wisdom, will, or my ways
I have no resting place
But the arms of the Ancient of Days
Not in my strength to see
But the sight Your Spirit gives
There is no life for me
But that Jesus died and lives

He is mine
I am Yours
He is mine
Because I am Yours

Oh, the Love of Christ
He was born to die
So that we are reborn
To claim His life
He who laid Himself down
Has lifted me up
There is no greater crown
Than Jesus’ love

All crowns all around the world
Fall down at the feet
Of the King of Kings
The King of Kings
Where glory and grace
Forever reign
In the King of Kings
The King of Kings
No crown I could wear
Could ever compare
To the King of Kings
The King of Kings
God’s love is revealed
Salvation is sealed
In the King of Kings

This is the Love of Christ
In darkness He died
So the world is reborn
In His great light
He who laid Himself down
Has lifted us up
There is no greater crown
Than Jesus’ love

Oh, the Love of Christ
He was born to die
So that we are reborn
To claim His life
He who laid Himself down
Has lifted us up
There is no greater crown
Than Jesus’ love

He who laid Himself down
Has lifted me up
There is no greater crown
Than Jesus’ love

His Heart Beats

His heart beats
His blood begins to flow
Waking up what was dead a moment ago
And His heart beats, now everything is changed
‘Cause the blood that brought us peace with God
Is racing through His veins
And His heart beats

His heart beats
He breathes in
His living lungs expand
The heavy air surrounding death turns to breath again
He breathes out
He is word and flesh once more
The Lamb of God slain for us is a Lion ready to roar
And His heart beats

So crown Him the Lord of Life
Crown Him the Lord of Love
Crown Him the Lord of All
He took one breath
And put death to death
Where is your sting, O grave?
How grave is your defeat
I know, I know His heart beats

He rises, glorified in flesh
Clothed in immortality, the firstborn from the dead
He rises, and His work’s already done
So He’s resting as He rises to reclaim the Bride He won
And His heart beats

So crown Him the Lord of Life
Crown Him the Lord of Love
Crown Him the Lord of All
He took one breath
And put death to death
Where is your sting, O grave?
How grave is your defeat
I know, I know His heart beats

The last enemy to be destroyed is death
The last enemy to be destroyed is death
He must reign until no enemy is left
The last enemy to be destroyed, to be destroyed is death

His heart beats, He will never die again
I know that death no longer has dominion over Him
So my heart beats with the rhythm of the saints
As I look for the seeds the King has down
To burst up from their graves

I know, I know
He took one breath
And put death to death
Where is your sting, O grave?
How grave is your defeat

I know, I know
He took one breath
And put death to death
Where is your sting, O grave?
How grave is your defeat
How great, how great is His victory

I know, I know His heart beats
I know, I know His heart beats
His heart beats

I Needed A Savior

Who could say that You, Oh Lord
Should pay the debt I can’t afford?
Who could say to God, “It must be so”?
But in the Garden You ordained
The price would be Your death and shame
And so the Word became the Name
Above all other names

I needed a Savior
And You found a cross to call Your tree
Only in God’s Son is my sin undone
Hallelujah, Jesus!
I needed forgiveness
You looked at the blood and saw my sin
There on Calvary, love has ransomed me
Hallelujah, Jesus!

Who can make me wait in fear
When Jesus’ voice has called me near
Who can say the Cross was not enough?
In His death I’m sanctified
And in His life I cannot die
And now I know the Father
And the depth of His great love

I needed a Savior
And You found a cross to call Your tree
Only in God’s Son is my sin undone
Hallelujah, Jesus!
I needed forgiveness
You looked at the blood and saw my sin
There on Calvary, love has ransomed me
Hallelujah, Jesus!

I am defended by the blood
The blood I spilled
Defended by the love
Of the One I killed
Defended by the grace
That took my place
Defended by the blood
