Mission

Mission

 

Chorus

When God calls on you

Don’t hesitate just move

If it seems impossible

God will see you through

Miracles of faith have already been commissioned

When He sends a child of God on a mission

 

The lions will stay hungry

giants will be slain

Waters will be parted

Battles won in Jesus name

Rocks will give you water

Fish will give you coins

He’ll fill the widow’s barrel

And make an army of dry bones

 

Axes will be floating

Walls fall to the ground

The weak will rise to power

The lost will be found

Fire will rain down

Bitter waters will be sweet

Standards will be raised

For the mission you receive

Living In The Days Of Grace

Living In The Days of Grace

Regina Walden

 

V1

Coming in perfection under the subjection

Of His loving Father He went

To the cross of Calvary where He freely gave me

Pardon from my every sin

Resurrection hour He arose with power

Over death Hell and the grave

In the dispensation of grace and salvation

Everlasting life He gave

 

Chorus

I live in the grace of God by His Son who died for me

At Calvary shed His blood on the cruel rugged tree

Still flows a river there where Jesus truly took my place

I’m sainted by the Savior acquainted with His favor

Living in the days of grace

 

V2

No longer am I hostage He broke the chains of bondage

When He set my soul to sore

Free from condemnation I’m a new creation

By the blood of Christ my Lord

I believe the story of His grace and glory

Every jot tiddle and space

He fulfilled the old and the new has now been told

We’re living in the days of grace

His Name Is Jesus

HIS NAME IS JESUS

 

VERSE 1

What would you say, if I were to tell you

That I know exactly what you’re searching for

The reason I say this is because I’ve been there

You’re longing for purpose, for peace and much more

 

VERSE 2

Friend, let tell you that you’ll never find them

Out in pleasures or the things of this world

True satisfaction and joy for your heart

Can only be found in the One I call, “Lord”

 

CHORUS        

His name is Jesus, and He’s right here with us

Friend, you can meet Him this very hour

Your search can be over

Don’t look any further

Come to this altar, He’s waiting right now  

 

VERSE 3

You may be saying, “It can’t be that easy

I have so many failures, mistakes and regrets”

Well friend I have good news, there’s a Savior who loves you

His blood and His mercy they forgive and they forget

Somebody Is Me

SOMEBODY IS ME

 

VERSE 1

I believe that in the church today

We’ve grown accustomed to a lack of praise

And I’m afraid we think that it’s supposed to be this way

But I’m here to tell you I believe

That’s not the way it has to be

Cause when you think of all the Lord has done for you and me

Then this ought to be what happens in this place

 

CHORUS

Somebody ought to say, “Amen”

Somebody ought to lift their hands

Somebody ought to stand and shout that they are glad they’re born again

Somebody ought to shed a tear, and thank the Lord that they are here

Somebody ought to come to this ol altar, while the Lord is near

And, Lord, I pray, today

Somebody is me

 

VERSE 2

If we ever really want to see

Ol time revival like there used to be

Then, my friend, it’s gonna have to start with you and me

We need to stop all of this lookin around

Waiting for someone else to make a sound

Cause if Jesus saved your soul and you are heaven bound

Then that ought be enough to praise our King

 

CHORUS 3

Somebody ought to say, “Amen”

Somebody ought to lift their hands

Somebody ought to stand and shout that they are glad they’re born again

Somebody ought to get real blessed

When they think about the Lord’s goodness

Somebody ought to thank the Father

That He sent us heaven’s best

And, Lord, I pray, today

Somebody is me

Feel The Rain

Feel The Rain

Words and Music by Lynn C. Robbins /

Asheville Music Publishing / BMI / Chris White Music / BMI

 

Verse 1

What’s that I see in the distance, Mmmmm, it’s getting closer,

It sounds like abundance of rain

The old saints told the story, of a vision way out yonder,

I think this could be the dawning of that day.

 

Chorus

Feel the rain, falling on me,

Lord come and quench this dry and thirsty soul.

Fill this vessel to overflowing

With your glorious, mighty Holy Ghost

 

Verse 2

We’ve been gathered in the room now,

Many years we’ve tarried

Waiting for the promise from on high.

But I feel a strong wind blowing,

Filling every vessel,

Oh, Joel is this what you prophesied?

I’m Going Through

I’m Going Through

 

Verse 1

When I started this journey so many years ago,

I decided to follow the crimson stained road,

Although I have stumbled and struggled along

I’m still determined that I’ll make it home.

 

Chorus

I’m going through, yes, I’m going through

By faith that mountain before me must move

Lord you promised if I would trust you that victory I’d find,

So I’m going through with your hand in mine.

 

Verse 2

Sometimes this way gets cloudy and drear,

The midnight hour brings me tear after tear

But like Paul and Silas I lift my hands and start to sing,

Come morning those shackles give way to such sweet relief.

 

Chorus

Tag

Lord you promised If I would trust you that victory I’d find,

So I’m going through, I’m going through,

Oh, I’m going through with your hand in mine.

Lord Lift Me Up

Lord Lift Me Up

 

Chorus

Lord lift me up to those high, heavenly places,

Lord lift me up, let me dwell with you,

Lord lift me up to those high, heavenly places,

Lift me up where you dwell Lord, lift me up.

 

Verse 1

I want to be lifted a little bit higher

Where the sun shines a little bit brighter,

I want to sing victory in Jesus oh how sweet.

I want to know a brand new day dawning,

Feel that latter rain falling,

In the throne room of God Lord let me be.

 

Verse 2

You said that your sons and your daughters would know it,

When you spirit started flowing,

A willing vessel here I am and Lord I’ll be

Just like John when you said come hither,

Like the lame man when he was delivered,

Lift me up, let your spirit dwell in me.

Don’t Look For Me

DON’T LOOK FOR ME

 

Verse 1

Look around and you’ll see trouble, you’ll see strife on every hand,

Wards and earthquakes all around us, violence fills our land.

The devil’s like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour,

But God’s getting ready to call His church in the last, final hour….

 

Chorus

Don’t look for me, I’ll be busy, walking on streets of gold,

I’ll be sitting by the river of life that’s flowing from God’s throne.

I’ll be talking to the blind man and the cripple, who will tell,

About the day that Jesus came and with one touch they were healed.

I can’t wait to hear the story of the thief who hung beside Him,

How Elisha felt that day when he caught that mantle from Elijah,

And when that trumpet sound and this old world starts spinning

Round and round,

Don’t look for me, no, no, no, don’t look for me,

 

No, No, No

Verse 2

My treasures are not laid up here in the world of sin and sorrow,

I’ve invested them where thieves can’t steal and they will be eternal.

The Father has prepared a place for me to dwell forever,

So goodbye world I’m leaving here for that land that’s called heaven.

 

Chorus

Tag: So when that trumpet sounds and this old world starts spinning round, and round, and round, and round, Don’t look for me, no, no, no, don’t look for me.

Don’t look for me, no, no, no, don’t look for me. No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No.

Before He’d Give Up On You

Before He’d Give Up on You

Dixie Phillips, Sharon Phillips, Rhonda Frye

 

When guilt follows you around

And beats you to the ground

And you think there’s no use in tryin’

Voices from your past

Make you feel like an outcast

And say you’ll never be forgiven

 

God would give up His Son before He’d give up on you

Every morning His mercies are brand new

You can never run too far

Be too battered or scarred

God would give up His Son before He’d give up on you

 

When tears pour down like rain

And life is full of pain

It seems the night will last forever

Darkness hides all hope

When life spins out of control

And you believe your best days are over

 

There’s no love like the Father’s

For every son and daughter

So trust His loving heart

A Whole Lot Of Food

A Whole Lot Of Food

Verse 1

Five thousand had come with their daughters and sons

Just to hear Jesus preach and pray

The Lord spoke the word and the people heard

Everything that He had to say

But when the sermon was finished everybody there witnessed

Something no one will ever forget

With little there to eat, He said just have a seat

‘Cause I’m not through blessing you yet

I’m not through blessing you yet . . they saw

 

Chorus

Two fish and five loaves is a whole lot of food

When you put it in the Master’s hand

Anything you bring as an offering

Multiplies in the Savior’s plan

Little is much if you just let Him touch

And do what only Jesus can

Two fish and five loaves is a whole lot of food

When you put in the Master’s hand

 

 

Verse 2

What started out as a modest amount

Fed the hunger of the multitude

Twelve baskets full of impossible

Were standing there as living proof

But something different had happened

They could hardly imagine

And now for the very first time

When the dinner was done, everybody had one

Of His miracles down inside

A miracle down inside . . . they saw

You Do Not Owe Me One Thing

You Do Not Owe Me One Thing

Phil Cross

I
Father I have wondered why I’ve had to live such a hard life

As one of your children I have questioned,
Shouldn’t things be better for me?
So many valleys too many hills
I thought but I was wrong Father
I’m sorry I didn’t see (that)

 

Chorus
You do not owe me one thing Father

You do not owe me one thing Father

You have already given everything Father

You do not owe me one thing

 

II
The riches of beloved love, your redeeming one blood

Was given for the sinners for the debtors
Now all my debt has fully been paid
You sent my Savior I owe my life to you
You settled my forever
I owe you everyday (but)

I Am One In The Number

I Am One In The Number
Marcia Hughes
Phil Cross Music, Chris White Music, Asheville Music Publishing

 I On a hill called Mt. Calvary you died on a rugged cross Made a way to save the sinner that we might not be lost Redeemed ones have entered through that open door
I am one in the number I glorify you Lord

 Chorus

I am one in the number Lord I give you praise I am one in the number Lord I give you praise You multiply your favor to millions every day
I am one in the number Lord I give you praise

II When the enemy comes to take away this life you gave to me Why would I go to prison when forever I am free

When you count your many children add up the saved by grace I am one in the number Lord I give you praise

 III Now when this life is ended Iʼll bow before your throne Youʼll say to me with open arms you are welcome home When that choir gathers there to sing on that golden shore

Iʼll be one in that number to glorify You Lord

The Ember

The Ember

Joshua Jordan, Phil Cross

I Thinking to a time you know when your heart your mind and soul Was thirsty for the Lord
Constant in His Holy Word hanging on the truth you heard
You longed to know Him more

Unashamed you shared your faith and you were unafraid You were a victor everyday

Chorus

Remember the ember
The spark that lit the fire that
Burned in your soul
It wasnʼt long ago
Think back to the time you
Would have gave it all for the sake of the call To be someoneʼs light
Like a beacon in the night
Remember the ember

 

II

You know who you really are youʼve drifted very far
Away from everything
Left the fellowship divine thrown away your peace of mind Youʼre cold and wondering
Youʼre not frozen in a place stranded from His grace
You can rekindle with your faith

He Wouldn’t Leave Me In The Dust

He Wouldnʼt Leave Me In The Dust Phil Cross, Casey Carpenter, Josh Johnson

VERSE 1:
I was poor, I was in the dust
I was lost that is where I was
Among the needy in the ashes I was stranded there But that is where… my Lord would come to me

CHORUS:
He would not leave me that way
He had a better plan for a better day
He could not watch me walk that dead end road He would not let me go, so He lifted me up
He wouldnʼt leave me in the dust

VERSE 2:
He would not turn, he would not pass me by
He would not fail to listen for my cry
He should have could have said that I had gone too far to save But by His grace….He took me as I was

BRIDGE:
Itʼs appointed everyone will return to the dust
But all of Godʼs children will rise from the ashes in Jesus Weʼll rise from the ashes in Jesus

LAST CHORUS
He will not leave us that way
He has a better plan for a better day
He could not watch us walk that dead end road He will not let us go, He will lift us up
He wonʼt leave us in the dust
He wonʼt leave us in the dust

Peace That Passes Understanding

The Peace That Passes Understanding

Verse I:

There’s a calm in the chaos

When the world is closing in

There’s a hedge of protection

So no matter where you’ve been

With open arms He’s waiting

To shelter and to guide

So when life overwhelms you

You have a place to hide – hide in

 

Chorus:

The peace that passes understanding

The peace that passes understanding

Is with you today

So don’t you be afraid

Hold to the peace that passes understanding

 

Verse II:

When the fear of failure

And doubt won’t let you go

Remember Jesus loves you

Much more than you know

And don’t forget His promise

That He will never leave

You’ll always find Him faithful

To be everything you need – you need

 

Bridge:

In that unexpected moment

When all you know is shaken

Still you have an anchor

You are not forsaken

Verse 1

Jesus blessed the bread and broke it

Then offered His disciples a piece

Lifting up the cup He told them

To keep this in their memory

 

Chorus

Always remember the blood

Never forget what it does

There’s none so unclean

That it can’t redeem

Always remember the blood

And tries to chain our hearts to sin

But the sinless stream from Calvary

Reminds us to once again

Clear The Stage For Jesus

CLEAR THE STAGE FOR JESUS

Dixie Phillips, Sharon Phillips, Regina Walden

Asheville Music Publishing / Chris White Music / BMI

 

In the theater of my mind

Reruns play all the time

And I’m caught behind the curtain of my past,

But then another spotlight shines

On the Lamb of sacrifice

And He promises the hurts don’t have to last.

 

Chorus

Clear the stage for Jesus

His blood has the power to free us

He turns bad beginnings 
Into happy endings

His miracles of grace

Still redeem and change

Every life that clears the stage for Jesus

 

Remove all doubts and fears

Shame cannot interfere

When we allow Jesus His rightful place

Defeat can’t wait in the wings

When the King comes on the scene

And we can’t help but offer Him all our praise

 

Bridge

When we let Jesus take the lead,

Mercy covers all our mistakes

And we become His masterpiece

Our past is gone without a trace

Won’t They Be Surprised

Won’t They Be Surprised

Written by David Rosson

Pisgah Ridge Music / BMI

 

I could hear my momma praying way up in the night

Asking for the good Lord to show me the light

And how the devil had me bound and would not let go

She spent her last days on this earth pleading for my soul

 

I still recall my daddy and the look upon his face

And how the hurt showed in his eyes each time I went astray

Though he told me about Jesus I just rebelled

And he left this ole world thinking I was bound for hell

 

Won’t they be surprised to see me standing by the Father

Won’t they be surprised to know I gave my life to him

His amazing grace washed my sins away

I was blind but now I see

And I can hardly wait to see their smiling face

Won’t they be surprised to see me

 

I can hear the joyful ringing of them calling out my name

When they see that all their prayers for me was not in vein

Cause the good Lord’s always watching and listening up above

And now it won’t be long we’ll be together forever in his love

 

Won’t they be surprised to see me standing by the father

Won’t they be surprised to know I gave my life to him

His amazing grace washed my sins away

I was blind but now I see

I can hardly wait to see their smiling face

Won’t they be surprised to see me

 

I can hardly wait to pass those pearly gates

They’ll be so surprised to see me

It Takes A Woman

It Took A Woman

(written by Ray Scarbrough) Chris White Music / BMI

 

1st verse

Who am I to question

the wisdom of my God,

for choosing valiant men

worthy of applause?

Heros, men of valor,

men of virtue strong & true;

Shepherd boy’s to general’s,

barbarian’s & jews?

But have you ever wondered

where any man would be

without a Godly woman

pray’n on her knees?

 

Chorus

It took a woman just like Sarah,

who even in old age

was a mother to a nation

while Abraham took center stage.

A Woman waded out in bullrush

to save the child that God would choose

to save Israel’s children

from every scourge & every bruise.

And in a backyard stable

a virgin bore a Son.

To bring God down to man,

it took a woman.

 

2nd

There’s a single mama liv’n

in the hills of Tennessee,

wip’n noses, pay’n bills

cuz Dad’s an absentee.

But every Sunday morn’n

She wakes her little baby boys

& takes them on to church

cuz that’s the family she enjoys.

Have you ever wondered

where any man would be

without a Godly woman

pray’n on her knees?

Grace Came To Stay

Grace Came to Stay

Dixie & Sharon Phillips

Asheville Music Publishing / BMI / Chris White Music / BMI

 

If your heart is full of rain,

Mercy’s calling out your name.

Grace is not a one-time offer.

Here today and gone tomorrow.

 

Grace came to stay

On the cross that day.

Grace came to stay

When Love became “The Way.”

The one who calmed the sea

Stilled the guilt in you and me

We are free today

‘Cause Grace came to stay.

 

When days begin with your teardrops.

And fear takes over all your thoughts.

Hide in the shadow of His cross.

Where His grace  never stops.

He’s a stairway for sinners

A latter for the lost

And built a bridge out of a cross

Stopping Short of Canaan

Stopping Short of Canaan
Regina Walden / Asheville Music Publishing / BMI

First verse

They were sent to find the way to possess what lay ahead
Every tribe of Israel sent one man
God said trust me I’ll go with you but they doubted God instead
Israel stopped just short of blessed Canaan land

Chorus
Go fourth my child and conquer every foe that you encounter
In the precious name of Jesus win the lost
There will be no trepidation in the midst of confrontation
No battle you can’t win behind the cross
If God’s people would let their thoughts digress
They’d remember how to use what they possess
To own the vict’ry promised move ahead and take your stand
Don’t stop just short of Canaan Land

Second Verse
Joshua and Caleb knew the challenges they faced
They knew that God had promised them the land
Seven times around the walls of Jericho they paced
Stopping short of Canaan wasn’t in the Masters plan

(Second or Third verse Option)
Faced with your own Jericho and walls that must come down
Knowing that it’s time to take a stand
Faith put into action brings results that will astound
Don’t give up till your possess that happy promised land

Bridge

Just too hard to carry all alone
Our spirit can get weary

When you’re weak I’ll help you through
‘Cause we’re a family with a love no one can sever

Help each other stand
And lift a prayer to Heaven
Do all that we can
To help one another
Make it to that place we call forever
We’re all in this together

So if you feel forsaken
And your heart is breaking with the pain
If the storm has left you shaken

chorus
Gotta little spring in my step now it feels like spring in my heart
Each new day brings new mercy and a brand new start
My cup’s running over and my joy overflows
Since Jesus found me all is well with my soul

If you see me and you realize
I’m not the same now well don’t be surprised
I was drifting then the Lord took control
Unspeakable joy now has elated my soul

The words escape me to express the way I feel
The love of Jesus gives my heart a thrill

Signed sealed and delivered on the wings of amazing grace
Oh what sweet communion oh what strength in family ties
There’s nothing like belonging in the Glory bound Bride of Christ

V1
Jesus, will You take my hand
And walk with me a while
On the outside I’m all grown up
But inside I’m just a child
This world can be confusing
With so many games to play
Jesus, will You take my hand
And walk with me today

V2
Jesus, can You hear
My little voice above the crowd
Hear me crying out Our Father
I am crying out so loud
Down on my knees I bow my head
I reach for You and pray
Jesus will You take my hand
And walk with me today

Chorus
Through the storms of my life
Your hand has upheld me
When no hope was in sight
Your love never failed me

V3

I find strength in You
Guide me with Your love Dear Lord
In all I say and do
There will never be a morning
When this child won’t need to say
Jesus will You take my hand
And walk with me today

Only God Can Know

Only God Can Know

(Where The Blood Has Been Applied)

 

Verse

She never knew the joy of serving Jesus in this life

Facing death, her circumstances have already closed her eyes

Kneeling by her bedside, her Christian family cries

God if you can reach her now

Save her soul before she dies

Then that final moment comes

As she steps into the arms of eternity

And those inside that room

Are shrouded in the gloom of uncertainty

 

Chorus

Only God Can know

Where the blood has been applied

Only He can see the soul and know

What’s happened down inside

When we all get to heaven

We might just be surprised

‘Cause only God can know

Where the blood has been applied

 

Bridge

There will be a day of judgement

And we’ll enter in that gate

The Holy One will be the judge

And He won’t make one mistake

Face Of Grace

The Face of Grace

 

Dixie Phillips, Sharon Phillips

Chris White Music / Asheville Music Publishing / BMI

 

Grace’s heart was in a million pieces

One Sunday at an altar she met Jesus

She found the Father she’d always wanted

And when asked she responded,

“You’re looking at the face of grace.”

 

The face of grace

Is all over this place

On every row, in every pew

Are lives that have been made new

Shame has been erased

By Love’s embrace

You’re looking at the face of grace.

 

I tried to hide my story most all my life

My painful secrets didn’t take God by surprise

My scars may remind me where I’ve been

But they can’t tell me where I’m goin’

You’re looking at the face of grace

 

The most bitter circumstance

Doesn’t  have a chance

Grace redeems

Every painful thing

1.

A little boy with treasure maps

And Spanish gold in gunny sacks

Loved to sail the Seven Seas

And when that pirate looked at me

I’d hug him and I’d say,

“If you ever lose your way,”

 

Chorus

Turn around and backtrack

You are always welcome back

On Daddy’s lap, on Daddy’s lap

There’s always room,

Yes, there’s always room on Daddy’s lap

 

2.

Ten years later that Buccaneer

Left his home and his momma’s tears

Set out on the wild seas

Living just as he pleased

Hee was tossed about,

‘Til a gentle voice called out,

 

 

Bridge

And take one step forward and two steps back

Until you fall in Daddy’s lap

On Daddy’s lap

There’s always room

You are always welcome on Daddy’s lap

Just A Boy On A Bus

Just a Boy on a Bus

Regina Walden

Asheville Music Publishing / BMI / Chris White Music / BMI

 

Standing by the roadside kicking in the dust

Every Sunday morning as he waited for the bus

He was just a bus kid, where’s his parents people thought

Teachers saw a difference in this child that they taught

 

They would all soon learn that they were sowing on good ground

He treasured every scripture as his teacher wrote them down

Someday he’d preach the Gospel all around the globe

Just a soul winning bus kid from down a dusty road

 

Chorus

His journey led him far from the church where he was saved

Love planted and it’s clear to see the increase that God gave

He loved the Lord with all his heart and in Him he placed his trust

He grew to be God’s man from just a boy on a bus

 

He lined up the lawn chairs and pretended they were pews

He made a make shift pulpit sticks were all he had to use

He preached of hell and heaven as his momma watched him play

She never would forget what happened on that day

 

She listened through the window as tears filled her eyes

With convicting power he spoke the words of life

Her heart was truly broken and she knew that she was lost

God saved her soul from hell as her baby preached the cross

It’s My Father’s Pleasure

It’s My Father’s Pleasure

Regina Walden

Chris White Music / BMI Asheville Music Publishing / BMI /

 

It’s my father’s pleasure

Oh Lawdy now

It’s my Father’s pleasure

Oh truly now

It’s my Father’s pleasure

To take good care of you

 

Blessed is the servant of the Lord when he comes

Til then walk in truth having faith

A steward of His blessing no matter the sum

And you’ll be blessed beyond measure some day

 

Seek Ye first the kingdom make Him Lord of you life

Perfect love overcomes all fear

You cannot grow an inch with all your worry and your strife

Trust the Lord with ones you hold dear

 

 

Bridge

Take your burdens to the Lord and leave them there

Safely resting in His providential care

Trust him with the saved the sick the blind and the lame

Who can be against you when you go in His name

A Church On Bethlehem Road

A Church On Bethlehem Road

Regina Walden / Chris White Music / BMI / Asheville Music Publishing / BMI

 

 

 

Often in service Mom would set me in the floor

I would play at Daddy’s feet

I heard the good news of Christ our Lord

No words ever sounded so sweet

He told of manger in Bethlehem

Christ was born so meek and low

They worshiped our Lord for the very first time

At a church on Bethlehem road

At a church on Bethlehem road

 

CHORUS

Just a little country church down a dusty road

No steeple just people we loved

The pews weren’t padded and neither were the pockets

Of the folks that filled them up

Bro Deacon would pray and the Church would sing

“Praise God from whom all blessings flow”

God’s love was truly shown

At a Church on Bethlehem Road

 

Running through the yard in my Sunday shoes

Momma calling child keep your clothes clean

Little did I know that these childhood memories

Would become such sacred scenes

As my mind wonders back down Bethlehem Road

It comforts my heart to know

That Jesus was born and I was born again

At a church on Bethlehem Road

At a church on Bethlehem Road

 

BRIDGE

From the very first congregation

In that stable long ago

With Love and adoration

How God’s Church has grown

From humble small beginnings

To the Church that we now know

Thank God for sending Jesus

To a Church on Bethlehem Road

Who Is This Child

Verse 1

Who is this child that kings will bow to HIM on bended knee

Who is this child that angels sing HIS praise eternally

And the brightest star in the heavens guide the wise men to HIS feet

Who is this child on a bed of straw asleep

 

Who is this child that shepherds bow to HIM in silent prayer

Who is this child that offers hope and love beyond compare

And all the souls that have ever lived will proclaim HIM LORD

Who is this child giving peace as your reward

 

Chorus

Rejoice, rejoice and praise HIS name

Our savior is born tonight

Who is this child, He’s the SON of GOD

Our Savior Jesus Christ

 

Verse 2

 

Who is this child that will give HIS life on a cross at Calvary

Who is this child that was born to die for a sinner such as me

And every sin will be bought and rest upon HIS head

Who is this child that brings eternal life instead

 

Repeat Chorus

Your Feet On Mine

I walked down the road where I lived as a child.

And stopped by the old home-place for a while.

As I peeked through the window’s broken glass,

Memories marched through my mind like old photographs

 

I became my Daddy’s little girl once more

Picked up my ballet shoes off the floor.

He held out his hand and asked me to dance.

I ran to his arms as he struck up the band.

 

And he said, “Follow my lead. Don’t be afraid.

I won’t let you fall. I’m here to stay.

Just put your feet on mine.

And I will be your guide.

Fear won’t ever have a chance.

If you’ll take life by the hand

And dance

With your feet on mine.”

 

 

All the music stopped the day my daddy died.

I couldn’t go on withot him by my side?

The rhythm of grief had silenced my feet.

And that same heartbreak drove me to my knees.

 

Until a hand of hope gently reached out to me

And strummed my heartstrings so tenderly.

I heard the voice of my heavenly Father.

Inviting me to be His dance partner.

 

He said, “Follow My lead. Don’t be afraid.

I won’t let you fall. I’m here to stay.

Just put your feet on Mine.

And I will be your Guide.

Fear won’t ever have a chance.

If you’ll take life by the hand and dance

With your feet on Mine.”

Kept By The Promise Keeper

Winds howl in a minor key.

Dark clouds hover over me.

Stormy skies sometimes threat.

But I won’t worry or fret.

 

‘Cause I’m a believer

Kept by the Promise Keeper.

My world is ruled

By His Voice of truth.

Fear cannot dominate

When I raise my shield of faith.

I’m a believer

Kept by the Promise Keeper.

 

 

Troubles knock on my backdoor

Whisper lies I’ve heard before

And lead me down the road of defeat

But I won’t listen to the enemy.

 

He delivers on His promises every time.

I believe every word and every line.

 

‘Cause I’m a believer

Kept by the Promise Keeper.

My world is ruled

By His Voice of truth.

Fear cannot dominate

When I raise my shield of faith.

I’m a believer….

Born-again believer

Kept by the Promise Keeper.

Hope Waited In The Dark

For three long days

Jesus lay lifeless

In a cold dark grave

A foggy gloom

Filled the room

That held Him captive in a tomb

 

Until His Father cried,

“Arise! Arise! Arise!”

 

 

In a Jerusalem graveyard hope waited in the dark

When Heaven’s breath conquered death

For every heart that’s battered and scarred Hope waited in the dark

 

Wthout a word

God shook the earth

The stone rolled away

Breaking since curse

Death had to go

Jesus arose

Paving the way

So we could know

He is walking by our side

Alive! Alive! Alive!

 

When storm clouds arise

And take us by surprise

Hope never dies

God’s Gonna See You Through

V1

Before your next tear drop falls God will be there through it all

Through the flame and the pain His love is sure as steady rain

 

Chorus

God knows and God sees He hears your pleas

God feels your pain He calls you by name

Yes God’s gonna see you through

Through the stress and the mess He’ll lead you through the wilderness

The Final Say

The pouring rain

Nearly drove me insane

I thought I wouldn’t make it

As the strong winds blew

I knew I was through

I just couldn’t stop aching

 

In my despair

I whispered a prayer

And found Jesus there

 

He has the final say

Not the storm that’s ragin’

He has the final say

Not the crisis I am facin’

When my heart is breakin’

A miracle is in the makin’

He has the final… the final say.

 

Do clouds hang low

And spin out of control

Does the thunder keep callin’

With each lightening crash

When you think you cannot last

Your tears keep fallin’

 

In your despair

Just whisper a prayer

And you’ll find Jesus there

 

He has the final say

Not the storm that’s ragin’

He has the final say

Not the crisis you are facin’

When your heart is breakin’

A miracle is in the makin’

He has the final…

 

Yeah, He has the final say

Not the storm that’s ragin’

He has the final say

Not the crisis I am facin’

When my heart is breakin’

A miracle is in the makin’

He has the final..

Oh..Yes, He has the final.. The final say.

Room 316

There’s a light on in room three sixteen at the Pineview Motel and Cafe

You can pay by the week or you can pay by the month but most here just pay once a day

There’s a half empty bottle on the stand by the bed and a bible in the first drawer

In the chair there’s a sign that says homeless and tomorrow he’ll hold it once more

 

By morning the bottle is as empty as the pockets in his ragged old jeans

So he’ll go out once more, to try and make sure there’s a bottle in room three sixteen

He came home from a war but the war didn’t end he fought the battle each night

So he chose ninety proof over family and friends and now he’s losing the fight

 

So he stands on the curb with his sign and his can that he hopes you’ll fill up with your change

Then he’ll go to the store to purchase once more a bottle for room three sixteen

 

Yesterday he came into that room with his bottle like always before

But he didn’t open that bottle this time he opened the drawer

 

Down on his knees in an old rented room tears fell as he knelt by the bed

The bottle couldn’t hold him like it did before cause this time he chose Jesus instead

 

And now three sixteen is different it don’t mean the same as before

It’s more than a room in a motel or a number that hangs on a door

And his voice doesn’t tremble and his hands they don’t shake

Cause in a moment he was made clean

All because of a chapter and verse and a bible in room three sixteen

Yeah he met that Man on the cross cause there’s a bible in room three sixteen

 

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son

That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life

Yeah there’s a bible in room three sixteen

Public Display of Affection

EARLY ONE MORNING AT GETHSEMANE
THEY CAPTURED AN INNOCENT MAN
BY DAYBREAK THEY HAD TRIED HIM
THE CROWD CRIED CRUCIFY HIM
THEY DROVE NAILS IN HIS FEET,AND IN HIS HANDS

ON AN OLD RUGGED CROSS
ON TOP OF A HILL
THEY WATCHED HIM FROM EVERY DIRECTION
AS HE DIED ON THAT TREE FOR A SINNER LIKE ME
IN A PUBLIC DISPLAY OF AFFECTION

THE ONLY INNOCENT MAN IN THAT CROWD
THE CROWD CRIED CRUCIFY
THE ONLY ONE THAT WAS WORTHY TO WALK AWAY SAFE
HE CHOSE TO SUFFER AND DIE

ON CALVARY’S HILL
GOD’S ONLY SON
PAID THE PENALTY FOR OUR PROTECTION

FAITH IS GREATER THAN LAW
AND THE CROWD SAW IT ALL
IN A PUBLIC DISPLAY OF AFFECTION

EVER SINCE TIME BEGAN
THERE HAS NEVER BEEN MAN
THAT WAS WORTHY FOR SUCH SACRIFICE

BUT OUT OF GREAT LOVE
FROM THE FATHER ABOVE
HIS SON PAID THE ULTIMATE PRICE

THOUGH HE’D DONE NOTHING WRONG
AND HE SPOKE ONLY TRUTH
HE SUFFERED THE PAIN AND REJECTION

WHAT THE CROWD THERE DID SEE
AS HE DIED ON THAT TREE
IT WAS A PUBLIC DISPLAY OF AFFECTION

THE ONLY INNOCENT MAN IN THAT CROWD
THE CROWD CRIED CRUCIFY
THE ONLY ONE THAT WAS WORTHY TO WALK AWAY SAFE
HE CHOSE TO SUFFER AND DIE

ON CALVARY’S HILL
GOD’S ONLY SON
PAID THE PENALTY FOR OUR PROTECTION

FAITH IS GREATER THAN LAW

It Must Be Love

in the corner of the altar, there’s a cross
and a crown like they placed on Jesus head
a reminder of the torment and the cost
that he paid for my salvation as he hung there in my stead

yes the cost of my salvation it was high
the creator of creation sent his only Son to die
for a wicked sinful wretch such as I
tell me why please tell me why

it must be love, must be love
that placed my savior on that tree
must be love, must be love
that held him there for you and me

and to think that I’m forgiven
for the nails that I have driven
must be love must be love

though my worth is really small
the creator of it all
cared enough that he would send his Son

and the pain that he was dealt
is the pain I should have felt
for the wicked sinful things
that I have done

how could it be
that he would suffer this for me

it must be love,must be love
that placed my saviour on that tree
must be love, must be love
that held him there for you and me

and to think that I’m forgiven
for the nails that I have driven
must be love ,must be love

yes this cross is just a symbol
of the cross that Jesus knew
a reminder of the pain and shame
for me that he went through

It must be love, must be love
that placed my saviour on that tree
must be love must be love
that held him there for you and me

and to think that I’m forgiven
for the nails that I have driven
must be love must be love
must be love must be love

God Gave It All

GOD CREATED ALL THINGS FOR GOODNESS TOWARD MAN
BUT MAN CHOSE TO CHASE AFTER SIN
SO HE OFFERED THEM LAWS AND SACRIFICES
THROUGH THE BLOOD OF BULLOCKS AND RAMS

BUT MAN KEPT ON SINNING JUST LIKE THE BEGINNING
WHEN HE CHOSE TO SIN IN THE GARDEN
BUT GOD HAD A PLAN BECAUSE OF HIS LOVE FOR MAN
HE’D GIVE HIS ON SON FOR THE PARDON

AND GOD GAVE IT ALL
YES GOD GAVE IT ALL

THE NAILS THAT THEY DROVE
AND THE BUSH WITH THE THORNS
THE TREE FOR THE CROSS
AND THE FLESH THAT WAS TORN

GOD GAVE IT ALL

AND THE NAILS DIDN’T BEND WHEN THEY DROVE THEM IN
TO THE FLESH OF JESUS MY LORD
AND THE BUSH DIDN’T DIE BEFORE IT MADE THE SUPPLY
OF THORNS FOR THE CROWN THAT HE WORE

AND THE CROSS THAT THEY MADE FROM THE TREE THAT GAVE SHADE
IT CARRIED THE WEIGHT OF ALL MEN
IT DIDN’T WITHER AWAY BUT GREW STRONG TILL THE DAY
HE GAVE HIS SON FOR OUR SINS

GOD GAVE IT ALL
YES GOD GAVE IT ALL

HE CREATED A WAY FOR MAN TO BE SAVED
BY HIS LOVE AND GRACE HIS OWN SON WAS PLACED
ON A CROSS

GOD GAVE IT ALL
YES GOD GAVE IT ALL

(REPEAT)
NO THE NAILS DIDN’T BEND WHEN THEY DROVE THEM IN
TO THE FLESH OF JESUS MY LORD
AND THE BUSH DIDN’T DIE BEFORE IT MADE THE SUPPLY
OF THORNS FOR THE CROWN THAT HE WORE

AND THE CROSS THAT THEY MADE FROM THE TREE THAT GAVE SHADE
IT CARRIED THE WEIGHT OF ALL MEN
IT DIDN’T WITHER AWAY BUT GREW STRONG TILL THE DAY
HE GAVE HIS SON FOR OUR SINS

GOD GAVE IT ALL
YES GOD GAVE IT ALL

HE CREATED A WAY FOR MAN TO BE SAVED

Hold On Till Victory Comes

CHORUS

HOLD ON

HOLD ON TILL THE VICTORY COMES

HOLD ON

HOLD ON TILL THE BATTLE IS WON

IN JESUS’ NAME, BE BOLD, BE STRONG

HOLD ON TILL THE VICTORY COMES

 

VERSE 1

WHEN THE WAR’S BEEN RAGING ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT

IT LOOKS LIKE SATAN’S IN CONTROL OF THE FIGHT

DON’T BE DISCOURAGED BY THE DANGER YOU SEE

IT’S JUST AN ILLUSION THAT FAITH WILL DEFEAT

VERSE 2

WHEN JESUS DIED ON CALVARY’S CROSS

HE SAID “IT’S FINISHED” AND IT LOOKED LIKE HE’D LOST

BUT ANOTHER MESSAGE WOULD RISE ON DAY THREE

AN ETERNAL REMINDER FOR YOU AND FOR ME

IN JERUSELUM THEY SAW HIM MEEK AND LOWLY CHRIST ARRIVED

THEY SHOUTED GLAD HOSANNAH PEACE AND GLORY IS ALIVE

BUT THOSE WHO FELT THREATENED SHOUTED SILENCE TO THE CROWD

IF THEY HAD HELD THEIR PEACE THE STONES WOULD THEN CRY OUT

CHORUS

DON’T LET THE ROCKS CRY OUT FOR THE ROCK OF AGES

FOR THE CORNER STONE OF GRACE IS WORTHY OF ALL PRAISES

PRAISE HIM FOR THE SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS TO ATONE

AND LET THERE BE A WITNESS IN THE SILENCE OF THE STONES

LET THERE BE A WITNESS IN THE SILENCE OF THE STONES

 

FROM PRAISES TO CURSING THEY SOON WOULD HAVE HIM TRIED

PILOT FOUND NOT FAULT STILL CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED

CELEBRATION TURNED TO GRIEVING AND IT SEEMED THAT DEATH HAD WON

BUT THERE’S NEVER BEEN A GRAVESTONE MADE TO HOLD GOD’S RISEN SON

 

THIS ROCK WAS SO OFFENSIVE THAT THE BUILDERS DID REJECT

AND THOUGH THEY DID BETRAY HIM HE SOON WOULD RESURRECT

HE IS OUR FOUNDATION AND WE SHALL SHOW FORTH OUR PRAISE

KEEPING THE STONES QUITE WITH ALL OUR VOICES RAISED

EVEN THE STONE AT THE TOMB REALLY COULD HAVE CRIED

PRAISES TO THE ROCK THAT THEY THOUGHT WAS THERE INSIDE

AS I STUMBLE THROUGH THIS LIFE
MANY TIMES IT SEEMS I FALL
BUT LORD YOU ALWAYS PICK ME UP
WHEN YOU HEAR MY FEEBLE CALL

AND I WONDER WHY YOU WAIT
WHY YOU EVEN CARE AT ALL
WHEN I CAN’T STAND UP STRAIGHT
YOU FORGIVE ME WHEN I CRAWL

CAUSE I”M A SINNER
BUT I’M SAVED BY GRACE
THOUGH THE VERDICT, IT WAS GUILTY
JESUS CHRIST, HE TOOK MY PLACE

NOW THE ROBE I WEAR IS SPOTLESS
ALL THE STAINS FROM SIN ERASED
YES A SINNER LOW DOWN SINNER
BUT A SINNER SAVED BY GRACE

SATAN HAD ME BOUND
BUT LORD YOU SAVED MY SOUL FROM HELL
NOW THE WORLD, THEY WATCH AND JUDGE ME
FOR THEY LONG TO SEE ME FAIL

YES I STILL HAVE MANY FAULTS
WHAT THEY SEE IS STILL A MAN
BUT WHEN THAT RAPTURES CALLED
MY EXIT HAS BEEN PLANNED

YES I’M A SINNER
BUT I’M SAVED BY GRACE
THOUGH THE VERDICT,IT WAS GUILTY
JESUS CHRIST, HE TOOK MY PLACE

NOW THE ROBE I WEAR IS SPOTLESS
ALL THE STAINS FROM SIN ERASED
YES A SINNER LOW DOWN SINNER
BUT A SINNER SAVED BY GRACE

THE ROAD TO HEAVENS GATE
IT IS NARROW IT IS STRAIGHT
AND THE ROAD TO DESTRUCTION
IT IS WIDE

AND IT’S PAVED WITH FOOLISH SIN
FROM THE HEARTS OF FOOLISH MEN
WHO REFUSE TO REPENT BECAUSE OF PRIDE

YES I’M A SINNER
BUT I’M SAVED BY GRACE
THOUGH THE VERDICT, IT WAS GUILTY
JESUS CHRIST,HE TOOK MY PLACE

NOW THE ROBE I WEAR IS SPOTLESS
ALL THE STAINS FROM SIN ERASED
YES A SINNER LOW DOWN SINNER
BUT A SINNER SAVED BY GRACE

THAT OLD CROSS THAT JESUS BORE
FOR THE PENALTY I FACED
IT OPENED HEAVENS DOOR
FOR THIS SINNER SAVED BY GRACE

YES I’M A SINNER
BUT I’M SAVED BY GRACE

What Kinda Pain

What Kinda Pain
Gerald Reeder / Asheville Music Publishing / Chris White Music / BMI

Jesus walked this earth
that His own Father made
to save the souls of fallen men
His own life he gave

His body it was flesh
the pain He felt was real
as the crowd cried crucify Him
and they drove those nails of steel

what kinda pain did i cause the Man
who took the pain from me
as He hung there on that cross
on that hill called calvary
though He never sinned Himself
He carried mine to that tree
what kinda pain did i cause the Man
who took the pain from me

He knew the pain to come
before the pain began
the nails the blows the thorns
the shame of sinful man

yet still he said forgive them Lord
they know not what they do
and with love and compassion
He died for me and you

what kinda pain did i cause the Man
who took the pain from me
as He hung there on that cross on that hill called calvary

though he never sinned Himself
He carried mine to that tree
what kinda pain did i cause the Man
who took the pain from me

and by his blood i’m now forgiven
for Christ alone could make the trade
His life for mine
that’s what He’s given
He took the pain
my ransome’s paid

what kinda pain did i cause the Man
who took the pain from me
as He hung there on that cross
on that hill called calvary

though He never sinned Himself
He carried mine to that tree
what kinda pain did i cause the Man
that took the pain from me

The Color Of Love

The Color Of Love

Gerald Reeder

Asheville Music Publishing / BMI / Chris White Music / BMI

 

Flesh was the color,

of the saviour that was born

Layed in a manger,

On that first Christmas morn

 

Black was the color,

of the hearts that Jesus saw

He could see the sin ,

That lies within,

The hearts of us all

 

And red was the color,

of the anger Jesus wore,

when he found his Fathers temple

Turned into a store

 

These are colors of life

The Creator has painted

From the beginning of time

His brush never faded

 

From the newness of Spring

Till the harvest of Fall

The creator of color

Has colored it all

 

Green was the color

Of jealousy among the Priest

You see when Jesus spoke

The seas were calmed

And the winds, they had to cease

 

Silver was the color

Of the coin that they paid

And with a single kiss from Judas

Jesus was betrayed

 

And scarlett was the color

Of the robe that they used

With a piercing crown

And a sign that read

King Of The Jews

 

These are colors of life

The creator has painted

From the beginning of time

His brush never faded

 

From the newness Of Spring

Till the harvest in Fall

The Creator of color

Has colored it all

But the color of love

Is the color of blood

And it comes from the vein

Of the one that was slain

 

As the nails , they were driven

The sacrifice given

God sent us his love

In the color of blood

Vapor

Vapor

Gerald Reeder

Asheville Music Publishing / BMI / Chris White Music / BMI

 

Life is just a vapor

First you’re born and then you’re old

And the things you do between the two

Is the story that gets told

 

Act one is when you crawl

Until you learn to drive

And you think you know it all

And you have forever in this life

 

Act two is when you’re married

With children of your own

And you wonder how you’ll pay

For the house, the braces and the broken bones

Ah but life goes on

And each day’s a little bit clearer

And the stories being told

By the man that’s in the mirror

 

Chorus

The man in the mirror his life you can trace

By the story that’s told

Through the lines on his face

A reflection of life

That each day becomes clearer

And it’s all being told by the man in the mirror

 

Act three is when the kids are grown

And they’re having babies of their own

And you miss ‘em

And you wish that they would visit home

And you’re thinking about retiring

Cause your body aches you  know

Andy you’re scared that if you don’t

Well they’re just gonna let you go

 

Now the final act is here

And your race is nearly run

But your face it shows no fear

Because of faith in the son

And your families gathered round

As the curtain now is drawn

And you lay this body down

As your spirit moves on

And your vision of Heaven

Has now become clear

And there’s peace on the face

Of the man in the mirror

If The Lord’s Been Good To You

IF THE LORD’S BEEN GOOD

Ray Scarbrough, Ricky Atkinson

Chris White Music / BMI / Ricky Atkinson Music / BMI

 

Chorus

If the Lord’s been good to you

Raise your hand & say amen.

If the Lord’s been good to you

Raise your hand & say amen.

Sometimes I feel he’s better to me

Than the rest of the family.

So if the Lord’s been good to you,

Somebody? Anybody?

If the Lord’s been good to you

Raise your hand & say amen.

 

1st

We’ve worked all week just to earn our keep

& to reach this day of rest.

Our emotions have ran from sad to mad,

But we’re here in our Sunday’s best.

It’s so good to see everybody happy,

But before we have to go;

While we’re here share in the cheer.

There’s just something we gotta know.

 

Chorus

If the Lord’s been good to you

Raise your hand & say amen.

If the Lord’s been good to you

Raise your hand & say amen.

Sometimes I feel he’s better to me

Than the rest of the family.

So if the Lord’s been good to you,

Somebody? Anybody?

If the Lord’s been good to you

Raise your hand & say amen.

 

2nd

Sometimes our fears & shameful years

Can make us feel ashamed.

That devil’s wise but his demise

Is in the power of God’s praise.

So let’s worship him & rejoice within

Like a mighty choir we’ll sing.

Lift your voice in a joyful noise.

Let his praises ring.

VerseI: -C
Sitting on the porch on a warm, spring day Talking with my granny over cold lemonade
She was smiling as she told of a heavenly place Somewhere beyond the gloom of the grave

Verse II:
She said there’s no more night, no skies of grey It will be one glorious, eternal day
Where the angels sing and loved ones wait
And the beauty there will take your breath away

Chorus – F
I wanna live in a land like that
Leaving my troubles in the past
Finally home and free at last
Oh I wanna live forever in a land like that Don’t you wanna live forever in a land like that

Tag Oh I wanna live forever in a land like that

Verse III:
It’s no fairy tale no make believe
Heaven’s more real than you could ever dream
It’s a place of joy and perfect peace
And when you get there you won’t ever want to leave

Bridge:
No more sorrow, no more tears No more sickness, no more fears

He Is

Chorus:

He is the savior

He is the king

Alpha omega

Lord of everything

He is almighty

The lion and the lamb

He is The Great I Am

 

Verse I:

The one who holds us in his arms

Holds the stars in space

The one who covers all the world

Covers us with grace

A thousand years could not contain

The greatness of our God

A million voices can’t explain

The measure of His love

 

Verse II:

The One who calms the raging sea

Is the One who calms our fears

The very one who brings the rain

Is the one who holds our tears

He’s bigger than the universe

Matchless is His name

He was and is and is to come

Let all the earth proclaim

 

Bridge:

He is righteous

He is victorious

He is Holy

He’s more than glorious

Giver Of The River

Verse I:

A guilty woman came to draw some water

Desperate for a drink to satisfy

The thirst that lived within her every hour

So deep within she found it hard to hide

 

Verse 2:

Then she met a Stranger at the well side

Who told her of a well that won’t run dry

He offered her a drink that was eternal

She ran into the town to testify

 

Chorus:

I’m glad I met the giver of the river

He was the Savior, I was a sinner

In a moment I was changed, born again delivered

I’m glad I met the giver of the river

 

Verse 3:

Like the woman at the well my heart was empty

Longing for a answer for my life

Until I found the spring of living water

Jesus Christ the Source that satisfies

 

Bridge:

He gave His life and from it flowed

Sweet redemption for my soul

He washed me white as snow

I want the world to know

Faith Moves The Heart Of God

Verse I:

His body plagued with leprosy

Naaman felt so hopeless – he

Felt like his life was over as he knew it

A message from the man of God

Said dip in Jordan and be washed

He didn’t understand and he tried to reason through it

Yet he knew somehow he had to do it

 

Chorus:

Faith moves the heart of God

So if you’re in need

And pain is all you know

You’ve gotta believe

And cry out to the Father

Try out the waters in faith

‘Cause faith moves the heart of God

 

Verse II:

When he came up the seventh time

His flesh was like a little child

He knew beyond a doubt he’d been delivered

All those scars had disappeared

And suddenly it was so clear

The healing didn’t flow from the banks of that old river

It came straight from the hand of the faith giver

 

Bridge:

Faith isn’t faith until you use it

Whatever you face

You will come through it

God will see you through it

Two Perfect Hands

I gambled on life

Lived with regrets

Played by my own rules

And hard to get.

But the King of Hearts

Gave me a grace card.

When two perfect hands

left Mercy’s mark.

 

Chorus

Two perfect hands left Mercy’s mark on me.

When they dealt with my sin on Calvary

The hands holding the nails now hold me.

Since Two perfect hands left Mercy’s mark on me.

 

Verse 2

Satan stacked the deck

Made a Joker of me

I fell for his lies

and tricks up his sleeve.

But the King of Hearts

Changed the name of the game

When two perfect hands

Cheated the grave.

 

Bridge

Now I play by the Book,

Not luck or skill

Because of the victory on Calvary’s hill.

Showers Of Blessing

 

Troubles took me by surprise.                                                                                                                                            And soon the teardrops filled my eyes.                                                                                                                                     I prayed that God would bring me peace                                                                                                                         And this is what He said to me.

 

“I’ll turn your tears into showers of blessing.                                                                                                               I’ll turn your trials in to times of refreshing.                                                                                                       When the teardrops fall, I’ll be there to catch them all,                                                                                                    And I’ll turn your tears into showers of blessing.

 

I have learned to face my fears.                                                                                                                               And know that God sees all my tears.                                                                                                                             Now when burdens come my way,                                                                                                                                  I still can hear my Father say.

 

Child of God, don’t think your pain is too deep for God to see                                                                                  Just trust Him and He’ll say to you the words He said to me.

Love Took His Breath Away

Through a road of suffering

He blazed a trail of grace.

Love paved the way to Calvary

And the agony He faced.

And as He hung on that cruel tree.

Everyone could see.

It was Love that took His breath away.

 

Love took His breath away.

On Calvary’s cross that day.

The sword in His side

Could not take His life.

It was Love…

Love that took His breath away.

 

 

His parched and broken body

Thirsted for the souls of men.

And the hands that carried the wounds,

Carried away our sins.

And when His bitter cup was through

He had the scars to prove.

It was Love that took His breath away.

 

And when I think of Love’s Sacrifice

So I could have eternal life

His love takes my breath away.

His Grace Runs Deeper

Verse 1

A man buys a bottle to make it through the night.

A woman takes a job she knows isn’t right.

Then grace comes knocking on their door.

Offering them a second chance and so much more.

 

Chorus

Grace runs deeper than the nails

That ran through His hands and feet.

Grace runs deeper than the spear

That pierced His side on Calvary.

Sin’s stains may be deep,

But there’s no place grace can’t reach.

Grace runs deeper than the sins

buried deep inside of  you and me.

 

Verse 2

A runaway can’t find his way back home.

A prisoner cries in his cell all alone.

Then grace appears on the scene

Offering forgiveness and a chance to be clean.

 

Bridge

We can run far away, but we can never outrun grace.

We can run far away. There’s no mistake His grace won’t erase.

God Painted A Masterpiece

Verse I:

In living color a picture of grace was displayed

When mercy’s brush painted His love

With three nails and an old wooden frame

In shades of scarlet and crimson red

For all the world to see

The great work of art

That flowed from His heart

When God painted a masterpiece

 

Chorus:

God painted a masterpiece

Upon Mt. Calvary

And through all these years

The picture is clear

From Heaven’s gallery

It’s priceless and yet it’s free

For all who will believe

So loving and carefully

God painted a masterpiece

 

Verse II:

My life was broken from all of my past mistakes

My heart was scarred the canvas was marred

‘Till he wiped away every stain

One stroke of His hand

Covered my sin

My portrait was complete

It was signed by His blood

And sealed with His love

When God painted the masterpiece

Bridge:

He painted it skillfully with His own loving hands

And offered it willingly from Heaven down to man

 

Ending:

It’s priceless and yet it’s free

For all who will believe

So loving and carefully

So loving and carefully

So loving and carefully

God painted a masterpiece

A masterpiece

We’ll Keep Pressing On

v.1

There are people watching as we’re running

In this marathon

Will we persevere they wonder

How far can we run?

 

C

We’ll keep pressing on

We’ll keep going strong

For a runner just keeps running when they’re running in this race

Very soon we’ll know we are finished when we

Meet the blessed Savior face to face when we

Meet the blessed Savior face to face

 

v.2

We are driven forward with the Father’s

Word cheering us on

Powered on by living water

Singing vict’ry’s song

 

Bridge

We will rest when a river flows there beside a golden street

We will stop when we are bowing there to lay the crown we’ve won before his feet

Waiting For You To Get Home

I

The first day of kindergarten a big yellow bus arrived

Little Johnny hugged his daddy’s neck before he climbed inside

Dad knew he had to tell him son it’s gonna be ok

So He said some words to help him through the day

 

Chorus

You’ll be fine I will see you soon

You are mine I’m so proud you

You’ll do great go on be brave and strong

I’ll be waiting for you to get home

 

II

Down the road John joined the army the big jet had a just arrived

Now they’re standing at the airport dreading that goodbye

His dad then reassured him with words he’d heard before

And this time it would take him through a war

 

III

After months of fighting cancer the expected time arrived

Johnny was called in to try to say goodbye

His dad could barely whisper but he just had to speak

He said “son remember this before I leave”

Sowing The Good Seed

I

The incorruptible seed is the infallible Word
It bears fruit when it’s planted in fertile earth
When you’re sowing the seed some will fall by the way
The birds from the sky will come and take it away
These people listen, but they’re not receiving
They show up to be seen… Don’t be discouraged

Chorus

Brother, keep on sowing the good seed
The fruit of the good seed will grow
Where good seed is found
Sister, keep on sowing the good seed
For some of the good seed will fall on good ground

II

In a field full of stone, no fruit can be grown
When the Word goes in one ear and out the other it’s gone
Many people are torn they’re being choked by the thorns
Life is squeezing their faith keeping them weary and worn

They get the good seed, but choose not to believe
And you can not make them change… Don’t be discouraged

Bridge

Good ground is where the people are found
Who will live by the word, who will lay their life down
But they’re not left alone because the thorns and the stones

Are still there but they don’t care

Power Of The Cross

I

Six hours one Friday outside the gates

Jesus at Calv’ry brought power our way

A source of provision bought by a friend

We draw from this over and over again

 

C

We can’t use it all or spend what it’s worth

We can never deplete what God gave the Earth

We cannot diminish the work it is finished

We will never exhaust the power of the cross

 

II

The shackled see freedom the guilty get grace

The sinners salvation the lost find the way

Soldiers are strengthened wounded are healed

Many millions each moment count on the hill

MIghty River

Verse1

 

Cover me by your blood

I need to bathe in the water of your forgiveness

For this ol’ flesh of mine, has fallen once again

In this current Lord I know

There’s refreshment for my soul

So I’m gonna  soak for a while

Until I find my self in You

 

Chorus

 

Mighty river always free

Let it flow to my soul

Puttin’ it all in me

I’m steppin’ in, In over my head —  completely- change me forever

Be my savior, mighty river

 

 

Verse2

 

Once again on my own

I know that I am in the desert, and I am thirsty

With an empty cup, I  return to you

I’m a beggar  fill my spirit, like you’ve done before

And on the banks of grace, I’ll make this place my home

Man Upstairs

Chorus

There’s a man upstairs and I know He cares and I know His name is Jesus

Came to Earth in Bethlehem Emmanuel God is with us

Did a perfect life sight to the blind gave everything that He’s got

There’s a man upstairs and I know He cares it’s Jesus Son Of God

 

1

I’ve heard ‘em say and it’s a mistake they’re gonna take it to the man upstairs

They don’t know Him nothin’ about Him or they wouldn’t call Him just a guy up there

I know the man they’re talking about He is my savior and He brought me out

He is my best friend this is my claim and I even call Him by name

 

2

Let’s take the time to say it right He is the Light the truth and the way

The star of the morning the thief without warning soon that is coming to take us away

He is the lamb and He is the king He’s the redeemer the song that we sing

He is the worthy one I will praise forever and all of my days

Love of Christ

I

Once I heard the Spirit He was calling me / calling me He was calling me

I ran into the water and it set me free / the river was the love of Christ

 

II

Then I started living as a child of God /  child of God as a child of God

I cannot be defeated on this earthly sod / powered by the love of Christ

Chorus

The love of Christ keeps me going on

The love of Christ takes me to my home

The love of Christ the love of Christ

It’s the unexplainable uncontainable wonderful love of Christ
III

I come into His presence and I lift my voice /  lift my voice yes I lift my voice
But ev’ry word to ev’ry song will still fall short / of the honor due the love of Christ

 

IV

Soon I will be stepping through the gates of pearl /

gates of pearl through the gates of pearl
And there I’ll be reminded how I left this world / raptured by the love of Christ

Leaving Is The Only Thing Left

I

The Father only knows the hour | The Father only knows the day

When the people will be caught up in power | raptured and carried away

But He said in the Revelation | the signs will then be clear

And it looks like the holy nation’s time of redemption’s drawing near

 

C

Leaving is the only thing left

Not waiting for anything else

Don’t need to see another sign | got it settled in my mind

Gonna be caught away anytime

Leaving is the only thing left | leaving is the only thing left

 

II

People it is time to get ready | People it is time to pray

Get your fam’ly to house of the Father | Do it without a delay

For the Savior today is knocking | He’s standing at your door

But tomorrow He may be calling all believers to Heaven shore

It’s Beulah Land

I

Israel is longing still for the peace that is promised by their Lord

Their desert sky is hot and dry, their stricken with violence and war

So we pray for a coming day believing by faith it can’t be long

For the holy land will be holy when Jesus has come to take his throne

 

C

Peace is dawning land of Abraham

The lion will lay down by the lamb

The kingdom is coming to Jerusalem

It’s the promise it’s Beulah Land

 

II

With the Lord the holy ones will arrive as a kingdom saved by grace

The pilgrim’s trip on Zion’s ship will find at last the perfect place

Where all is right as God’s delight becomes the country He had planned

Even Israel’s name will then be changed for that day we’ll call it Beulah Land

I’ll Fly Away

v.1

Everyday they wonder, how do we press on

Many people are confounded as we keep on singing a happy song

The life of faith is a mystery to the wisest man

But all is great … When you’re doing life on Heavens plan

I’m gonna keep believing my Bible line by line

I know the ending I’m leaving this world behind

I’m leaving this world behind

 

C

I’m keeping my eyes … on the Eastern sky

Watching and waiting with my faith in one Jesus Christ

I lift up my heart there is no fear or dread

Standing on the promise that He brought us when the Master said

Someday I’ll fly away

 

v.2

I am not constrained by a temporary plan

I am trusting the eternal one and resting in His righteous hand

I cannot be moved from the fortress from the mighty tower

I have been rescued by the blood, the wonder working power

By grace I’m standing, His Spirit stands in me

By faith I’m planning a marvelous destiny a marvelous destiny

I Look Like My Father

1

You noticed the hair you looked at our eyes

You heard as we laughed you saw when we smiled

You witnessed reactions and every expression that we have

Tho we were on opposite sides of the room

You put us together you matched us two

You knew we were fam’ly that can’t be denied

Chorus

I look like my Father everybody knows that I am His

When we’re together it is obvious

I am like Him there’s no mistaken I’m one of His children

It’s in my blood it’s reconciled

I look like my Father I am His child

 

How much will I care how much can I love

Those who just take and can’t get enough

Will I grant forgiveness to all the transgressors in my world

Can I receive grace and give it away

Declaring there’s mercy for the guilty today

Will I do this life so anybody can see

 

Chorus

I look like my Father everybody knows that I am His

When we’re together it is obvious

To be like Him so there’s no mistaken I’m one of His children

It’s in my blood it’s reconciled

It’s been one of those days

All I wanna do is cry

I’ve got so many problems, I can’t begin to solve them

But I don’t even have to try

You keep Your word

I’ll keep holding to, every promise made by You

So I believe, I believe

Do I need to learn to climb

Or would you require my mustard seed of faith and move it for me

He Saw Me

Chorus

He saw me when I was dyin

He saw me when I was cryin

When my soul was lyin at the bottom He saw me

He saw me when I was shaken

Not considering forsaking me

When on my own I could not see a thing

He saw me

 

I

I was in a bad place doin’ life had brought me down

Feelin’ there that God’s grace might be too lost to be found

Everyday was hard how could I go so far

I closed my eyes to realize that a friend was watching me

 

II

To get up get back on my feet I got down on my knees

To make it and not give up on me to God I made my plea

In pain and despair I saw that He was there

Never for a moment did He turn away from me

He Did It For Me

I

In Gethsemane my Lord would pray

Then He let the soldiers take Him away

He stood before Pilot who washed His hands

Saying I find no fault in this man

 

II

He heard the crowd cry crucify

Give us Barabas and let Jesus die

So He took all the guilt and He took all the shame

Must have felt like the world mocked His name

 

Chorus

He did it for you

He did it for me

He bled and died hanging on a tree

He gave His life so willingly

He did it for you

He did it for me

 

III

He stepped forward when we needed a volunteer

Knowing on this mission He would have to die down here

He took our place and He took our crown

Took    our battle with hell and took it down

Broke Out With A Song

 

I

In a dark and dingy dungeon bound by locks and chains

Looked like an impossible escape

Paul began a melody just perfect for the time

Silas joined in rhythm and in rhyme

 

C

When they began to praise Him the prison bars were shaken

They were rockin to the rhythm when the jailhouse rocked along

Bout the midnight hour God’s wonder workin power

Set em free when they broke out

They broke out with a song

 

II

The poor pathetic prisoners heard the two men sing

That night they eye witnessed everything

Much to their amazement they got their freedom too

That’s what the power of praising God can do

And I just can’t wipe this smile off of my face

AND HE’S OFFERING WHAT CANNOT PASS AWAY
I WANT TO HAVE MY CUP,  RIGHT WHERE HE CAN FILL IT UP

When I feast with Jesus

It knocks demons to their knees

 

 

Verse 2

Though I may be wounded

I will not retreat

No weapon formed against my soul

Will triumph over me

Every tongue that rises

In judgment, God will stop

He said the battle’s His

And He’ll give it all He’s got

Making My Way

Making My Way

Christie Capps

Asheville Music Publishing / BMI / Chris White Music / BMI

1st verse

There was a little woman…she was pressing through the crowd. She was needing healing, but she couldn’t figure out. How am I gonna get through the crowd to touch Him? I’m not supposed to get too close, but I know if I could reach Him, by faith I’ll be made whole.

Chorus

I’m making my way to Jesus. Pressing through the crowd. Making my way to Jesus. There’s no time for doubt. While I’m making my way He’s making a way that I can go on through. So, friend if you are making your way, He’s making a way for you.

2nd verse

I was an old sinner. I was as lost as I could be. I was needing a Savior, someone who could set me free. So, I got up from the pew and I walked down to the altar where He turned me around. I never will forget the day I looked to Him to say…

Does Anyone Care

Does Anyone Care

Christie Capps

Asheville Music Publishing / BMI / Chris White Music / BMI

1st verse

A mother and her son were sent away. They only had provisions for one day. And when that ran out the boy began to cry. Mama has he left us here to die?

Chorus

Is anybody listening? Does anyone care that I’m all alone and dying out here? If I could find someone to quench my thirst and lead me to the well…Is anybody listening? Does anyone care?

2nd verse

His mama shed a tear as he sat there in the shade. She didn’t want to leave him there that day. She walked just a bow shot and she fell, for right before her eyes God placed a well.

2nd chorus

Child, I am listening. I care that you’re all alone and dying out there. You have found someone to quench your thirst. I am the well. I am listening. I care.

Dream Big

 

DREAM BIG

Jon Azzarello

(verse)

Looking up into the country sky

Stars were shining bright that night

I can still hear my grandpa gently say

“If I could do it all again

I’d turn this big world outside in

At least I’d go out tryin’ anyway”

Each hear-felt word that left his lips

Hit me like a ton of bricks

“There’s more to this old life than meets the eye”

(He said) “Make a difference where you can

And soon you’ll see God’s mighty hand;

So before you’re life can pass you by”…

(Chorus)

Dream big, reach far

And picture the impossible inside your heart

Be strong, hold on tight

To the faith that makes the mountain move

When there’s no hope in sight

Learn to love along the way

Give as much as you can take

So with every passing day

Dream Big

(verse)

There’s a star that’s shining in your eyes

But you have come to realize

A dream is all that it will ever be

But the maker of the stars that shine

He’s a real close friend of mine

He can do far more than you can dream

Sand is falling now’s the time

Here is the one shot you get at this life

Don’t let fear of losing hold you down

There’s a chance you have to take

It’s a choice, a step of faith

Miracles are waiting for you now

(bridge)

And when you’ve reached the point of no more turning back

Remember obstacles will arise

There are no limits to the dreams that you can dream

Through heaven’s eyes, through heavens eyes

One Drop Of Blood Became A River

Written by Mark Bishop

 

Coarse heavy timbers… were dragged down the path.

Two rough hewn beams, fastened together by nails and by straps.

The birds hushed their singing; from the crowd only jeers.

His muscle and sinew glistened in crimson, his eyes moist with tears.

 

He lay looking upward.  The angels searched his face.

They drove in the nails and the soldiers they lifted the cross into place.

No-one really noticed, for it made not a sound.

So small as it formed, that first drop of blood when it fell to the ground.

 

But one drop of blood… became a river.

With power to wash… all sins away.

There was a miracle no-one could see,

The greatest of all, he saved just for me,

when one drop of blood… became a river.

 

One drop of blood… became a river.

With power to wash… all sins away.

There was a miracle no-one could see,

The greatest of all, he saved just for me,

when one drop of blood… became a river.

 

He healed the sick, gave sight to the blind,

But his greatest gift to all of mankind…

One drop of blood became a river.

One drop of blood became a river.

That’s The Sound Of A House Being Built On Love

Written by Mark Bishop

A little boy sits in the church house on an Easter Day.

He sees a man called Jesus in a passion play,

And when they nail him to the cross, the boy begins to cry.

As the hammer rings, the preacher pulls the young boy to his side.

 

(Says…) That’s the sound of a house being built on love.

That’s where Grace built the walls and a roof up above.

It’s the sound of a nail through the wings of a dove,

But that’s the sound of a house being built on love.

 

So the deacons dressed as soldiers with their plastic spears

Tell the story that’s been passed down for two-thousand years.

And as the congregation watches from the darkened halls,

They listen to the ringing of the hammer as it falls.

 

That’s the sound of a house being built on love.

That’s where Grace built the walls and a roof up above.

It’s the sound of a nail through the wings of a dove,

But that’s the sound of a house being built on love.

 

That’s the sound of a house being built on love.

That’s where Grace built the walls and a roof up above.

It’s the sound of a nail through the wings of a dove,

But that’s the sound of a house being built on love.

 

When he cried “It is finished,” to his father above…

That’s the sound of a house being built on love.

Your Easter Sunday Is On Its Way

Written by Mark Bishop

I’ve been right where you are.  I know all about the pain and the scars.

And yes, I listen when you pray.  My heart is touched by every word you say.

For I remember how the tears flowed.  Oh their memory will never fade.

And child, the years have not diminished the promise that I made.

 

Your Easter Sunday… is on its way.

Though on Friday night it seems a million miles away.

And if your Saturday’s in darkness, you’re waiting for the light of day,

I’m here to say… your Easter Sunday is on its way.

 

That valley seems so low, but in the darkness there’s a light that glows.

A tender mercy from above…  For when there’s nothing there is still God’s love.

And when they tell you there is no hope, well that’s just words that people say.

Soon that burden will be lifted and that stone will roll away.

 

Your Easter Sunday… is on its way.

Though on Friday night it seems a million miles away.

And if your Saturday’s in darkness, you’re waiting for the light of day,

I’m here to say… your Easter Sunday is on its way.

 

Your Easter Sunday… is on its way.

Though on Friday night it seems a million miles away.

And if your Saturday’s in darkness, you’re waiting for the light of day,

I’m here to say… your Easter Sunday is on its way.

 

I’m here to say… your Easter Sunday is on its way.

It’s My Turn

Written by Mark Bishop

They rushed in… to the prodigal’s father,

Said “We have seen him.  He’s walking this way.

Should we stop him?  …tell him he is not welcome?”

But the father pushed through them, they heard him say…

 

No, it’s my turn… to stand at the gate;

see the look on his face… at last hold him close.

It’s my turn… to wrap him in love;

hand him new garments… it’s my turn,

to welcome him home.

 

The word doesn’t give… clues to the story,

who may have died first, the father or son.

If the son left… and found himself waiting

In heaven recalling the love he was shown…

 

Then one day… they’d bring him the message.

They’d say “We have seen him… walking this way.

Soon your father… will be greeted by angels.”

But the son pushed right through them, and they heard him say…

 

No, it’s my turn… to stand at the gate;

see the look on his face… at last hold him close.

It’s my turn… to wrap him in love;

hand him new garments… it’s my turn,

to welcome him home.

 

Some day I’ll open my eyes in heaven!  On that day… someone will say…

 

No, it’s my turn… to stand at the gate;

see the look on his face… at last hold him close.

It’s my turn… to wrap him in love;

hand him new garments… it’s my turn,

to welcome him home.

 

It’s my turn to welcome him home… It’s my turn to welcome him home.

I Still Need Him

Written by Mark Bishop

There’s a whisper in the autumn breeze and I can hear it say

I still need him… I still need him.

It’s a voice that lives inside my heart, reminds me everyday

I still need him… I still need him.

 

When I’m standing on the mountain, even then I realize…

I still need Him… I still need him.

I may be smiling on the outside, oh but look into my eyes…

I still need him… I still need him.

 

Thank you Lord for saving me, and for the cross at Calvary,

a sacrifice for everyone to see.

In agony with every breath, yet even on the verge of death,

I needed Jesus… more than he needed me.

When I think about my journey, and the miles still yet to go

I still need him… yes I still need him.

 

There are good days and there are bad days, oh but every day I find…

I still need him… I still need him.

I may not be like the lame man, may not be like the blind, but…

I still need him… I still need him.

 

When I’m high upon the mountain, or in the valley low…

I still need him… I still need him.

I don’t know what waits around the bend, but I know he’s in control

I still need him… I still need him.

 

Thank you Lord for saving me, and for the cross at Calvary,

a sacrifice for everyone to see.

In agony with every breath, yet even on the verge of death,

I needed Jesus… more than he needed me.

When I think about my journey, and the miles still yet to go

I still need him…  I still need him.

 

Oh I still need him… I still need him.  I still need him.

Are You Going Where I’m Going?

Written by Mark Bishop

God gave John a vision… a city coming down.

There was no more night… no more sorrow to be found.

John beheld the gates of pearl… he saw the jasper walls.

His mind could hardly take it in.  His eyes could hardly see it all.

 

If you’re going… where I’m going?

One day we’ll be strolling down… heaven’s golden avenue.

If you’re going… where I’m going,

A river will be flowin’… and angels singing glory to his name.

 

John beheld a great throne… he couldn’t see God’s face.

But every fear he ever had just disappeared without a trace.

A tree of life before him… a brand new robe and crown.

He couldn’t wait to tell it.  No, he couldn’t wait to write it down.

 

If you’re going… where I’m going?

One day we’ll be strolling down… heaven’s golden avenue.

If you’re going… where I’m going,

A river will be flowin’… and angels singing glory to his name!

 

There’s an old-time preacher… a Bible in his hand,

He tells the congregation all about a better land…

 

Are you going… where I’m going?

John saw… walls of jasper.  John saw… streets of gold.

One day we’ll be strolling down… heaven’s golden avenue.

John saw amazing things, the half of which has not been told.

If you’re going… where I’m going,

John saw… walls of jasper.  John saw… streets of gold.

A river will be flowin’… and angels singing glory to his name

John saw amazing things, the half of which has not been told.

 

Are you going… where I’m going?

(John saw a holy city… coming down)

One day we’ll be strolling down… heaven’s golden avenue.

If you’re going… where I’m going,

(John saw the angels… heard a brand new song…)

A river will be flowin’… and angels singing glory to his name

 

And angels singing glory to his name.  (Eyes have never seen…)

And angels singing glory to his name.  (Ears have never heard…)

And angels singing glory to his name.   (To his name…)

Job’s Wife

Written by Mark Bishop

She had a good man, with livestock and good land.

God gave them daughters and sons.

They worked everyday, never failing to pray and to

Thank God for all he had done.

 

Job was renowned for the faith he had found and

his wife stood strong at his side.

For years she adored him but now she cried for him

As their faith was tested and tried.

 

Long nights she lay weeping, it seemed God was heaping

More suffering than they could bear.

The workers and the farm, and the children all gone.

So broken, she no longer cared.

 

Job could find no relief.  She watched his pain and grief.

All he’d lost, she had lost too.

She said “Just curse God and die”, fell to her knees and cried.

There was nothing else she could do.

 

Just say a prayer… a prayer for Job’s wife.

But by the Grace of God… such heartache could enter your life.

Don’t judge her too harshly… till you’ve known her strife.

Just say a prayer.  Thank God you’re not there,

with the care of Job’s wife.

 

Just say a prayer… a prayer for Job’s wife.

But by the Grace of God… such heartache could enter your life.

Don’t judge her too harshly… till you’ve known her strife.

Just say a prayer.  Thank God you’re not there,

with the care of Job’s wife.

 

Oh just say a prayer.  Thank God you’re not there,

with the care of Job’s wife.

BY GRACE
Regina Walden

HAVE YOU EVER HAD A HEART STOPPING MOMENT
OR A PAINFUL SENSE OF LOSS
WHEN YOU KNEW YOUR LIFE WAS CHANGED FOREVER
WITH NO TIME TO BRACE FOR THE FALL
BUT STILL YOU HELD ON BY FAITH
WRAPPED IN HIS WARM EMBRACE

CHORUS

WE LIVE
BY THE FAITH IN CHRIST WHO GAVE HIMSELF FOR ME

WE LOVE
THRU THE HEART OF GOD WHOSE TRUTH HAS SET US FREE

WE DIE
WITH THE HOPE OF HEAVEN DEATH WHERE IS YOUR STING

WE LIVE WE LOVE WE DIE BY GRACE
I HAVE FELT THE BITTER PAIN OF REJECTION
BEEN HAUNTED BY SOME PAST DEFEAT
AND I HAVE KNOWN THE SWEET RELEASE OF SURRENDER
FELT THE SAFETY OF GODíS PERFECT PEACE
I KNOW HE HAS A PLAN IN PLACE
BY HIS SUFFICIENT GRACE

He Really Had Me

 

HE REALLY HAD ME

Regina Walden

 

 

THERE WAS JUST A bit of  MILK LEFT IN THE GLASS THERE ON THE COUNTER

THE TRAIL OF CRUMBS LED ME TO HIS FAVORITE HIDDING PLACE

I PRETENDED NOT TO NOTICE AS I SEARCHED AND CALLED HIM LOUDER

I KNEW HE THOUGHT HE HAD ME WHEN I SAW HIS SMILING FACE

 

CHORUS

AND HE DID HE REALLY HAD ME

HE HAD ME BY THE HEART AND BY THE HAND

WITH ONE PRECIOUS GIFT FROM GOD MY LIFE HAD CHANGED FOREVER

FROM THE MOMENT THAT I SAW HIM I COULD SEE

HE REALLY HAD ME

 

 

AN ALTER CALL WAS GIVEN AT A CHURCH ON SUNDAY EVENING

I KNEW THE LORD HAD FOUND ME AND THERE WAS NO HIDDING PLACE

HE HAD MY FULL ATTENTION AS HIS SPIRIT DREW ME NEARER

HE HAD ME FROM THE MOMENT THAT I FELT HIS SAVING GRACE

 

BRIDGE

I REMEMBER HOW I FELT WHEN I FIRST HELD MY BABY BOY

THE NEWNESS OF LIFE WAS IN MY HANDS

THAT SAME KIND OF FEELING IS WHAT I FELT THERE ON MY KNEES

GOD HELD ME IN HIS HANDS WHEN I WAS BORN AGAIN

He Still Came Down

HE STILL CAME DOWN

 

Words and Music by Robert Milliren and Susan R. Jones

 

Asheville Music Publishing / BMI Chris White Music / BMI

 

 

 

VERSE 1: Imagine, if you will, a scene in heaven

 

Where the angels gather ‘round the Savior’s throne.

 

He’s preparing to attempt the greatest rescue

 

The heavens and the earth have ever known.

 

Far beyond the sphere of Glory they are dying

 

In a lost and lonely world that knows no hope.

 

The angels, one by one, approach King Jesus:

 

“Do you realize the danger? Do you know?

 

 

 

CHORUS 1: And are you still going down

 

Knowing all that lies before you?

 

There’s poison and pain, man’s rejection and blame,

 

It could even cost Your life!”

 

But He never paused a moment

 

As He stepped into the realm of this old world.

 

He alone could offer hope. Tell the angels it’s so,

 

He’s still going down!

 

 

 

VERSE 2: Now, I don’t know if such a scene transpired.

 

I don’t know if angels spoke to Him that day.

 

But if, indeed, the conversation happened

 

Well, I know the answer Jesus gave.

 

 

 

BRIDGE: For the angels bent low in the night sky below

 

To witness Jesus’ birth.

 

They spread the good news, their chorus grew:

 

Glory to God! Peace to earth!

 

 

 

CHORUS 2: For Jesus came down

 

Knowing all that lie before Him.

 

Poison and pain, man’s rejection and blame,

 

Why, He even gave His life.

 

And He never paused a moment

 

As He stepped into the realm of this old world.

 

He alone could break through. With everything He knew

 

He still came down!

 

 

 

TAG: Now, imagine, if you will, the scene in heaven

 

As the angels gather ‘round the Savior’s throne.

Faster than I Can Fall

Written by Phil Cross

(with Through it All / Andrae Crouch)

VERSE 1
Tryin’ my wings, I keep fallin’ down
Sometimes I wonder, will I hit the ground?
But there is one reason again I will try
Until I learn how to fly

CHORUS
He can fly much faster than I can fall
And He’s not too far away to hear me call
Even when I’m goin’ down, I learn through it all
He can fly much faster than I can fall

VERSE 2
Now I can sail through the clouds of dismay
Trustin’ His promises, livin’ by faith
I’m safe in His unseen righteous right hand
Even when I cannot stand

BRIDGE
Through it all, through it all
I’ve learned to trust in Jesus, I’ve learned to trust in God
Through it all, through it all
I’ve learned to depend upon His Word

TAG
He can fly
He can fly
He can fly
He can fly much faster than I can fall
I fly away

We Need a Little Love

Written by Diana Perry Gillette

VERSE 1
So many people hurting
Looking for an answer
Not knowing what their tomorrow may hold
Maybe their heart is aching
And their spirit is breaking
And within their soul it’s always dark and cold

CHORUS
We need a little love and caring
Come on start sharing
The Word of God to a dying land
We’ve got to bind with our brother
And love each other
Lifting up His name we’ll take a stand

VERSE 2
In a life that’s lost and empty
And constantly in search of
A way to change their gray skies to blue
With love and compassion
And a positive reaction
The world will see His love come shining through

TAG
Lifting up His name
We’re gonna take a stand

Love At First Sight

Written by Nick Akin, Eli Akin, Whitney Akin

Down the hall, room 401
Watched my wife birth our son
I took her hand with my eyes shut tight
Then we heard the sound of the baby cry
Then I opened my eyes
Now I believe in love at first sight
Because of the love in my son’s eyes
This gift that God has given me
Will truly change my life                                                                                                                    I believe in love at first sight

A little town, a cold still night
The brightest star lit up the sky
Welcoming our Savior’s birth
The Son of God had come to earth
Joseph held Mary and smiled
Said I believe in love at first sight
Because of the love in my son’s eyes
This gift that God has given us
Will truly change our lives
Oh, I believe in love at first sight

Some people say that kind of love
Only comes from Hollywood
But if they would feel my Savior’s touch
I know they could
Believe in love at first sight
Because of the love in my Father’s eyes
This gift that He still gives to us
Could truly change your life
Then you’ll believe in love at first sight
Oh, I believe in love at first sight
