1. Father, How Great Your Delight in the Son Words & Music: Zac Hicks, 2013 ©2013 Unbudding Fig Music (ASCAP) 1. Father, how great Your delight in the Son Infinite joy ere the worlds were begun The fullness of Love found in Him, with You one Father, how great Your delight in the Son 2. Jesus, You reign at the Father’s right hand In pleasure You rule o’er His sovereignty’s span You joyfully follow the Father’s commands Jesus, You reign at the Father’s right hand And, now called into Your delight As we strain to gaze at Your light With the hosts of the heavens all veiling their sight, We cry, ”Holy, holy, holy”… 3. Spirit, You light up the Father and Son With pleasure You join their affections in One So pour out their glory as we humbly come Spirit, You light up the Father and Son So we join Your myst’ry divine As we sing Your Love before time And we lift up our voices midst glory sublime And cry, ”Holy, holy, holy”… 4. O worship the Father, immortal, in light O worship the Son, at His right hand of might O worship the Spirit, eternally bright With saints, angels, elders, and martyrs in white So we join the great One in Three In the praise that ever shall be And in Christ, through the Spirit, our Father we seek. And cry, ”Holy, holy, holy”…

2. We Look to You Words & Music: Zac Hicks & Julie Anne Vargas, 2013 ©2013 Unbudding Fig Music (ASCAP), Julie Anne Vargas 1. We long to sing a story Far greater than our own Long to witness glory Far brighter than is known Lord, sound Your story’s song Sing over us We look to You, what You've done Father, Spirit, in the Son Death is dead, Victory won Life forever has begun Look to You, fix our eyes On the work of Jesus Christ It is finished, it is done Praise the Father, Spirit, Son 2. And when with honest measures We weigh our thoughts and deeds We are left found wanting In brokenness and need Lord, sound Your story’s song Sing over us Lift up our heads to see Christ glorious! Bridge: Our hope is in the cross In what You’ve done for us We look beyond ourselves We look to Jesus

3. Father, Only in Your Power Words & Music: Zac Hicks & Bruce Benedict, 2013; with traditional “Kyrie” and “Agnus Dei” ©2013 Unbudding Fig Music (ASCAP), Cardiphonia Music 1. Father, only in Your power Can we ascend to You. Help us, Father, we are helpless To pay our righteous due. 2. Jesus, only in Your weakness can we your kingdom claim Help us, Jesus, we are reckless in self-destruction’s chains Lord, have mercy Christ, have mercy Lord, have mercy 3. Spirit, only in Your presence can we true union find. Help us, Spirit, we are restless Our soul’s divisions bind. Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world Have mercy on us Lamb of God, Slain before the dawn of the world Have mercy on us 4. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit Our ancient curse we own Broken in the blood of Adam The blood of Christ now show

4. Before the Father (It is Enough) Words & Music: Zac Hicks, 2013 ©2013 Unbudding Fig Music (ASCAP) 1. Before the Father Two voices ever plead Praying, interceding for us Before the Father They serve to meet our need, Saying, "Look not on them but Us." Jesus stands, pleading His blood for us The Spirit kneels, groaning in prayer for us And the Father hears their cry 2. Before the Father, With all our sin laid bare: Jesus pleads His wounding for us. Before the Father, We have no good to share: Jesus pleads His goodness for us. Jesus stands, pleading His blood for us The Spirit kneels, groaning in prayer for us And the Father hears their cry The death of Christ has paid our price It is enough, it is enough The life of Christ is now our life It is enough, it is enough 3. Before the Father, While orphans with no home: The Spirit pleads adoption for us; Before the Father, When prayers, they fail to come: The Spirit prays in power for us. Jesus stands, pleading His blood for us The Spirit kneels, groaning in prayer for us And the Father hears their cry The death of Christ has paid our price It is enough, it is enough The life of Christ is now our life It is enough, it is enough The Spirit’s sigh: our "Abba!" cry It is enough, it is enough The Spirit’s prayer forever there It is enough it is enough Your death, O Christ, has paid our price You are enough, You are enough Your life, O Christ, is now our life You are enough, You are enough

5. Open Our Eyes (Communion Hymn) Words & Music: Zac Hicks & Bruce Benedict, 2012 ©2012 Unbudding Fig Music (ASCAP), Cardiphonia Music 1. When we see the risen Savior In the bread that He has blessed He becomes the living servant, Heavenly food for holy rest Stay with us, for day is fading Feast with us, O secret King Show to us how Scripture’s story Speaks of You in everything Do not our hearts burn brightly now? For You’re here among us now 2. Jesus, show Yourself the author and perfecter of our faith In Your living and Your dying, Consummation of God's grace From creation to the exile Incarnation to the grave Resurrection to ascension Come, Lord Jesus, come to save Do not our hearts burn brightly now? For You’re here among us now Open our eyes to see You, Christ Risen, ascended, reigning high Open our eyes, open our eyes to You Feed us with living bread above Bind us in union with Your Love Open our eyes, open our eyes to You 3. You're the Word that spoke creation You're the end of Moses' Law You're the goal of Abram's blessing You're the King whom David saw, You're the Day the prophets longed for, You're the covenant of grace, You're the hero of the scriptures, Now we see You face to face. Do not our hearts burn brightly now? For You’re here among us now Bridge: Cause us to remember God the Father Cause us to remember God the Son Cause us to remember God the Spirit That we might share Your great delight O God 4. Jesus, show Yourself the Prophet Jesus, show Yourself the King Jesus show Yourself the priest All in all, and everything

6. God Has Decided Words: Zac Hicks, 2013 Music: Traditional Indian tune, “Assam” ©2013 Unbudding Fig Music (ASCAP) 1. God has decided to save my lost soul… No turning back, no turning back 2. Christ has decided to die in my place… No turning back, no turning back 3. The Holy Spirit now lives inside me… No turning back, no turning back 4. The love of God will forever hold me… He won’t let go, He won’t let go No turning back, no turning back

about

The Magnificent Three is a small collection of songs whose themes all explore different facets of what it looks like to sing to and about the Trinity. It was inspired by an article written a few years ago by scholar Lester Ruth, entitled, “How Great is Our God: The Trinity in Contemporary Christian Worship Music.” In it was a challenging word that our worship songs may be losing touch with one of the core aspects of our faith—God’s three-in-oneness. The Magnificent Three explores Trinitarianism from the liturgical perspectives of Call to Worship (“Father How Great Your Delight in the Son”), Confession (“Father, Only in Your Power”), Salvation/Assurance (“We Look to You,” “Before the Father”), and the Lord’s Supper (“Open Our Eyes”).

Textually, the songs are the collaboration of songwriters Zac Hicks, Julie Anne Vargas, and Cardiphonia’s Bruce Benedict. Musically, The Magnificent Three is a diverse studio record—from electronic dance-pop, to bluesy 90s rock, with some 80s and gospel influences here and there.

The songs most often sung by the local congregation at Coral Ridge are “Father, Only in Your Power,” “Before the Father,” and “Open Our Eyes.”
