Track Name: The World's Greatest Story
The world's greatest story in the Bible is told.
It's a story more precious than diamonds or gold.
He was born in a manger, gave his life on a cross.
Brought hope and salvation to a world that was lost.

It's the world's greatest story
Greatest story e're told.
It's the story of Jesus, and it never grows old.
How just one Galilean saved the world from its fall.
It's the world's greatest story, greatest story of all.
Track Name: Up On A Mountain
Up on a mountain our Lord is alone
Without a family, friends, or a home
He cries, “Oh, Oh, Oh, will you stay with me?”
He cries, “Oh, Oh, Oh, will you wait with me?”

Up on a mountain our Lord is afraid,
Carrying all the mistakes we have made.
And he knew it’s a long way down.
Do you know it’s a long way down?

Up in the heavens our Lord prays for you
He sent his Spirit to carry us through
So its true that you’re not alone.
Do you know He came all the way down?

So its true that you’re not alone.
Do you know He came all the way down?
Track Name: Hast Thou Heard Him Seen Him Known Him
Hast thou heard Him, seen Him, known Him?
Is not thine a captured heart?
Chief among ten thousand own Him,
Joyful choose the better part.

Captivated by His beauty,
worthy tribute haste to bring.
Let His peerless worth constrain thee,
crown Him now unrivaled King.

What can strip the seeming beauty,
from the idols of the earth?
Not a sense of right or duty,
but the sight of peerless worth.

'Tis that look that melted Peter,
’Tis that face that Stephen saw,
'Tis that heart that wept with Mary,
Can alone from idols draw.
Track Name: He Never Said A Mumblin' Word
They led him to Pilate's bar
Not a word, not a word, not a word
They led him to Pilate's bar
But he never said a mumblin' word
Not a word, not a word, not a word

They all cried, "Crucify!"
Not a word, not a word, not a word
They all cried, "Crucify!"
But he never said a mumblin' word
Not a word, not a word, not a word

We nailed him on to a tree
Not a word, not a word, not a word
We nailed him on to a tree
But he never said a mumblin' word
Not a word, not a word, not a word

Not a word, not a word, not a word
Not a word, not a word, not a word
Not a word, not a word, not a word
Track Name: O Sacred Head, Now Wounded
O sacred Head, now wounded, with grief and shame weighed down.
Now scornfully surrounded with thorns Thine only crown;

O sacred Head, what glory, what bliss till now was Thine!
Yet, though despised and gory, I joy to call Thee mine.

What Thou, my Lord, hast suffered, was all for sinners’ gain;

Mine, mine was the transgression, but Thine the deadly pain.
Lo, here I fall, my Savior! ’Tis I deserve Thy place;
Look on me with Thy favor, vouchsafe to me Thy grace.

My burden in Thy Passion, Lord, Thou hast borne for me.
For it was my transgression which brought this woe on Thee.
I cast me down before Thee, wrath were my rightful lot;
Have mercy, I implore Thee; Redeemer, spurn me not!

What language shall I borrow to thank Thee, dearest friend.
For this Thy dying sorrow, Thy pity without end?
O make me Thine forever, and should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never outlive my love to Thee.
Track Name: Sweet Deliverance
Oh my soul, admire and wonder;
Jesus lived and died for thee;
He has broke the bands asunder,
And from bondage set thee free:
Sweet deliverance, Jesus Christ was wrought for me.

I a slave to sin and Satan
Once did live and liked it well,
But the God of my salvation,
Died to save my soul from Hell:
Precious savior, let me ever with thee dwell

All the debts I had contracted,
He, in mercy, called his own;
And, lest I should be neglected,
Drew me near his gracious throne;
Paid all charges, then, and for the time to come

Soon I hope to see His glory,
And, with all the saints above,
Sing and tell the pleasing story,
In the highest strains of love;
And forever, live and reign with Him above.
