Hymns Monthly is a collection 10 new and old hymns that were recorded and released one month at a time. This project was born out of a desire to encourage people to discover and remember the truth of who God is and what he has done. These hymns deeply bless and enrich our lives and we hope they bear the same grace to you.

With gratitude, this album is dedicated to the Sojourn Collective family of neighborhood churches.

Track Name: Praise To The Lord, The Almighty (Sep '15)
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near
Praise Him in glad adoration!

Praise to the Lord, who over all things so wondrously reigneth
Shelters thee under His wings, yea, so gently sustaineth!
Hast thou not seen how thy desires have been
Granted in what He ordaineth

Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee
Surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend thee
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do
If with His love He befriend thee

Praise to the Lord, O let all that is in me adore Him!
All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before Him
Let the Amen sound from His people again (x3)
Gladly forever adore Him
Track Name: Crown Him With Many Crowns (Oct '15)
Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne
Hark! How the heavenly anthem drowns all music but its own
Awake, my soul, and sing of Him who died for thee
And hail Him as thy matchless King through all eternity

Crown Him the Lord of lords, who over all does reign
Who once on earth, the incarnate Word, for ransomed sinners slain
Now lives in realms of light, where saints with angels sing
Their songs before Him day and night, their God, Redeemer, King

Crown Him the Lord of love, behold His hands and side
Those wounds, yet visible above, in beauty glorified
No angel in the sky can fully bear that sight
But downward bends his burning eye at mysteries so bright

Crown Him the Lord of life, who triumphed over the grave
And rose victorious in the strife for those He came to save
His glories now we sing, who died, and rose on high
Who died, eternal life to bring, and lives that death may die
Track Name: How Deep The Father's Love For Us (Nov '15)
How deep the Father’s love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the man upon a cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
Track Name: O Savior of Our Fallen Race (Dec '15)
O Savior of our fallen race
O Brightness of the Father’s face
O Son who shared the Father’s might
Before the world knew day or night
O Jesus, very Light of light
Our constant star in sin’s deep night
Now hear the prayers Your people pray
Throughout the world this holy day

Remind us Lord of life and grace
How once, to save our fallen race
You put our human vesture on
And came to us as Mary’s son
Today, as year by year its light
Brings to our world a promise bright
One precious truth outshines the sun
Salvation comes from You alone

For from the Father’s throne You came
His banished children to reclaim
And earth and sea and sky revere
The love of Him who sent You here
And we are jubilant today
For You have washed our guilt away
O hear the glad new song we sing
On this, the birth of Christ our King!

O Savior of our fallen race
The world will see Your radiant face
For You who came to us before
Will come again and all restore
Let songs of praise Your name adorn
O Christ, Redeemer, virgin-born
Whom with the Father we adore
​And Holy Spirit evermore
Track Name: When I Survey The Wondrous Cross (Jan '16)
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

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

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?

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
Track Name: And Can It Be That I Should Gain (Feb '16)
And can it be that I should gain
An interest in the Savior’s blood
Died He for me, who caused His pain
For me, who Him to death pursued
Amazing love! How can it be?
That Thou, my God, should die for me!

He left His Father’s throne above
So free, so infinite His grace
Emptied Himself of all but love
And bled for Adam’s helpless race
Tis mercy all, immense and free
For O my God, it found out me!

Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature’s night
Thine eye diffused a quickening ray
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light
My chains fell off, my heart was free!
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee

No condemnation now I dread
Jesus, and all in Him, is mine
Alive in Him, my living Head
And clothed in righteousness divine,
Bold I approach the eternal throne
And claim the crown, through Christ my own
Amazing love! How can it be?
That Thou, my God, should die for me!
Track Name: We've A Story To Tell To The Nations (Mar '16)
We've a story to tell to the nations
That shall turn their hearts to the right
A story of truth and mercy
A story of peace and light
​A story of peace and light!

For the darkness shall turn to dawning
And the dawning to noon-day bright
And Christ's great kingdom shall come on earth
The kingdom of love and light
The kingdom of love and light!

We've a song to be sung to the nations
That shall lift their hearts to the Lord
A song that shall conquer evil
And shatter the spear and sword

We've a message to give to the nations
That the Lord who reigns above
Has sent us his Son to save us
And show us that God is love
And show us that God is love!

We've a Savior to show to the nations
Who the path of sorrow has trod
That all of the world's great peoples
​Might come to the truth of God
Might come to the truth of God!
Track Name: Grace Greater Than Our Sin (Apr '16)
Marvelous grace of our loving Lord
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt
Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilled

Grace, grace, God’s grace
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within
Grace, grace, God’s grace
Grace that is greater than all our sin

Sin and despair, like the sea waves cold
Threaten the soul with infinite loss
Grace that is greater, yes, grace untold
Points to the refuge, the mighty cross

Dark is the stain that we cannot hide
What can avail to wash it away?
Look! There is flowing a crimson tide
Brighter than snow you may be today

Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace
Freely bestowed on all who believe!
You that are longing to see His face
Will you this moment His grace receive
Track Name: Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus (May '16)
O soul are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There's light for a look at the Savior
And life more abundant and free

Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace

Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there
Over us sin no more hath dominion
For more than conquerors we are

His word shall not fail you He promised
Believe Him and all will be well
Then go to a world that is dying
His perfect salvation to tell
Track Name: What Grace Is Mine (Jun '16)
What grace is mine that He who dwells in endless light
Called through the night to find my distant soul
And from his scars poured mercy that would plead for me
That I might live and in his name be known

So I will go wherever He is calling me
I lose my life to find my life in Him
I give my all to gain the hope that never dies
I bow my heart, take up my cross and follow Him

What grace is mine to know His breath alive in me
Beneath his wings my wakened soul may soar
All fear can flee for death's dark night is overcome
My savior lives and reigns forevermore
