Lyrics: Great Things

Great Things

Centergy/Possum Run Music/BMI

Peter and John saw while walking along
A lame man begging alms by the gate

Straightway they told, “We’ve no silver or gold,

But for you a great treasure awaits.”

Now such as I have give I thee

In the name of the Lord, rise up and walk”

And be not amazed that a crippled was raised

It’s through Jesus we do great things.

Chorus

Great things are in store for the child of the Lord

When he walks with the King of kings

And each word that you say

When you kneel down to pray

Will be carried on the backs of angels wings.

When you walk with Jesus

You’re going to do great things.

Now we have big dreams when we’re younger

It seems of a life where we do great things.

But life finds a way of taking our dreams away

When our plans unravel at the seams.

And though you feel small in God’s eyes

You’ll stand tall if your footsteps are faithful and true

For the same power that raised Lazarus up from the grave

Is the same power Jesus gives to you.

Chorus

I won’t worry if I’m never famous,

Or for those worldly pleasures I’ve missed.

For Jesus gave me sweet peace like a river.

Tell me what could be greater than this?

Chorus

When you walk with Jesus

You’re going to do great things.

Great things. Great things.

I Start Each Day With The Lord

Centergy/Possum Run Music/BMI

This morning again I told to a friend

Things I’m sure He’s already heard.

But each though I share when I kneel in prayer

He listens to hear every word.

So I wouldn’t think about starting the day

Without asking Jesus to show me the way

Unchained and unfettered. I feel so much better

When I start each day with the Lord.

Chorus

I start each day with the Lord

Why should I face life alone anymore?

Today if I’m tested and tried,

I’ve got the Lord at my side.

I talk to Him at the start of each day

For He knows each trouble that’s coming my way.

With Jesus I’m ready what ever’s in store.

I start each day with the Lord.

Ol’ Daniel prayed three times a day

He knew the power in prayer.

He prayed until when in the old lion’s den

He knew that God was right there.

Now we get caught up in the worry and fuss.

But God hasn’t changed how He listens to us.

So since He’s redeemed me, it’s worth it believe me.

I start each day with the Lord.

Chorus

I talk to Him at the start of each day.

For He knows each trouble that’s coming my way

With Jesus I’m ready what ever’s in store.

I start each day with the Lord.

With Jesus I’m ready what ever’s in store.

I start each day with the Lord.

When Jesus Is Your Well

Centergy/Possum Run Music/BMI

When you’ve reached the summit of men’s expectations.

And success leaves you as empty as before.

If you’ve climbed life’s ladder and you’re feeling lonesome.

If you’ve tried it all and still you thirst for more.

Chorus

You’ll never come up empty when Jesus is your well.

When you seek that living water,

I am here to tell you every time I go

I find an overflowing pail.

You’ll never come up empty when Jesus is your well.

Now I am not the first to taste this water.

There are millions who have found this well I know.

Like the woman from Samaria who found out

This water satisfies a thirsty soul.

If you’ve fallen short of goals you’ve always dreamed of.

You’re well’s gone dry and there’s no sign of rain.

When you try a taste of Jesus’ living water.

One drink and you will never thirst again.

Chorus

Every time I go I find an overflowing pail.

You’ll never come up empty when Jesus is your well.

You’ll never come up empty when Jesus is your well.

Well.

I Will Be Right Here

Centergy/Possum Run Music/BMI

“Daddy, would you hold me till the thunder passes by?”

She bit her lip and pleaded, trying real hard not to cry.

But six years ain’t enough to learn to hold back little tears.

I sat down on the bedside and I whispered in her ears.

And I said,

Chorus

“Shh.. Everyhing’s okay.

I’m right here and I’m not going away.

This old world makes lots of noise

But you’ve got nothing to fear.

Just close your eyes

Call my name

And I will be right here.”

How easily that we can be distracted by the sounds

Of the hustle and the bustle and the clamor all around.

When I’m feeling overwhelmed so tired of all the noise.

I tune my ears to Heaven and listen for the Father’s voice.

And He says.

Chorus

And when you hung upon that rugged cross so long ago

To hear the crowd yell, “Crucify Him!”

Broke your heart I know

Through the laughter of the soldiers

And the sound of bitter tears,

I wonder if your Father whispered something in Your ears.

Something like..

Chorus

Just close your eyes

Call My name

And I will be right here.

Pray For the Power

Centergy/Possum Run Music/BMI

Pray, pray for the power

Have you ever found yourself in a little situation

And you wondered if this time you’d make it through?

When it seems the powers of darkness

Are camped out all around you

And the vultures overhead are circling you.

Hold on tight to the promise that Jesus is with you

In the midst of your faith He’ll be found

There’s no barrier Satan can put in your path

That Jesus can’t bring to the ground.

Chorus

Pray for the power and call on the Master and wait for the answer to come.

In only a minute after my God is in it the victory’s already won.

There’s no telling what miracle is waiting in store.

And prayer is the key that will unlock the door.

So when you prayer for the power and call on the Master

The victory is already won.

Have you ever seen a Christian who’s just going through the motions?
Well I must admit I’m guilty now and then.

But the key to my survival is a Holy Ghost revival

That renews that passion in our hearts again.

And He’s given each Christian that burning ambition

In each heart He has placed that desire.

On the dry days I’ll pray to the Lord for the rain.

And on the good days I’ll pray for the fire.

Chorus

There’s no telling what miracle is waiting in store.

And prayer is the key that will unlock the door.

When you pray for the power

And call on the Master

The victory is already won.

The victory is already won.

I Rely On Him

Centergy/Possum Run Music/BMI

Like a baby reaches out for it’s mother’s embrace

Like a flower blooms in spring

To feel the sun upon it’s face.

Like a sailor needs a compass to get back home again.

That’s how much I need the Lord.

That’s how I rely on Him

Chorus

I rely on Him every hour, every day

I rely on Him every mile along the way

In all the year’s I’ve known the Lord

And all the places that I’ve been.

I got all I ever needed when I relied on Him

There were times of disappointment

When He gave me sweet relief.

There were days my steps grew weary

And I know He carried me.

And when my worries seem so heavy.

I can’t carry anymore.

I can feel the load get lighter

When I rely upon the Lord.

Chorus

In all the years I’ve known the Lord

And all the places that I’ve been

I got all I ever needed

When I relied on Him

I rely on Him

When You Change Your Mind

Centergy/Possum Run Music/BMI

Well you don’t believe there’s a God in Heaven

With the Good News to impart.

You’ve already decided

So you never invited Jesus into your heart.

Would you change your story

If you knew that Glory was waiting on the other side?

Will you make it into Heaven or will you get left behind?

Well I guess it all depends on when you change your mind.

Chorus

When you change your mind you’re going to find the love of God

And sing about amazing grace.

Or you can wait a little while and become a believer

When you meet Him face to face.

Will you make it into Heaven or will you get left behind?

Well I guess it all depends on when you change your mind.

If the world believes it’s a fairy tale

They heard about in Sunday School

And they think that maybe we’re a little crazy

Living by the Golden Rule

But when they hear the trumpet on the day of judgment

They’ll see it in a different light.

Will they make it into Heaven or will they get left behind?

Well I guess it all depends on when they change their minds.

Chorus

Will you make it into Heaven or will you get left behind?”

Well I guess it all depends on when you change your mind.

That Soul Was Mine

Centergy/Possum Run Music/BMI

In a dream last night I stood upon a hillside.

And in the shadow of the cross I realized

That this place was where I first met my Redeemer

Saw salvations plan unfold before my eyes

Chorus

I saw a place where a multitude had gathered.

I saw the Man who bled and died upon the tree.

He saw one lost and desperate soul somewhere in time.

That place was Mount Calvary.

That man was Jesus

And that soul was mine.

I saw the crown of thorns they placed upon His head.

My eyes beheld the mother weeping at His feet.

I saw the dirt turn moist with each drop of blood that fell.

And when I woke I cried fo all He did for me

Chorus

That place was Mount Calvary.

That man was Jesus and that soul was mine.

Golden Street Parade

Words by Mary Margaret Mabry.  Heartwarming Music/BMI

I’m here to sing the story of a mansion up in glory

Where the banner of the Lord is waiting in the sky.

A land where little children play

Among the saints in white array

Oh what a day in the sweet, sweet by and by

Chorus

I’m gonna step from star to star

As I walk down the Milky Way

I’m gonna join my friends and loved ones

In that golden street parade

There’ll be voices by the millions

With a shout of jubilee

Hand in hand with Jesus in that golden street parade

Marching in the golden street parade.

Down here my steps grow weary

My nights sometimes are weary

But faith has caught a glimpse of Heaven’s shore

With Jesus there tomorrow, I’ll end this veil of sorrow

I’ll walk on streets of gold forever more.

Chorus

Marching hand in hand in hand in hand

With the King in that golden street parade.

You Must Come In At The Door

V.O. Stamps/Yandell Marshall/Stamps-Baxter Music/BMI

Well don’t you know It’s so high (so high) you can’t get over it.

So low (so low) you can’t get under it

So wide (so wide) you can’t get around it

You must come in at the door

So high (so high) you can’t get over it

So low (so low) you can’t get under it.

So wide (so wide) you can’t get around it

You must come in at the door

Well, you can’t get there by walking

And you can’t get there by land

Now if you want to get to Heaven at all

You must go hand in hand.

And you can’t get there by walking

And you can’t get there by air.

Now if you want to see Heaven at all

You must go there by prayer.

So high (so high) you can’t get over it

So low (so low) you can’t get under it.

So wide (so wide) you can’t get around it

You must come in at the door

Well, Rebecca she said she saw Him

Come riding up in the air

Well it was so high you couldn’t get over

The Bible does declare.

Brother Jonah in the bottom of the deep blue sea.

In the belly of the whale he stopped.

Well he was so low he couldn’t get under

He had to come to the top

So high (so high) you can’t get over it

So low (so low) you can’t get under it.

So wide (so wide) you can’t get around it

You must come in at the door

Now old Pharaoh he drove those children

Across the wide sea and he found

That it was so wide he couldn’t get around

So he went right through and drowned

Now I told you folks how hard it was

I made it plain to see

So if you want to get o Heaven at all

Come on and follow me

So high (so high) you can’t get over it

So low (so low) you can’t get under it.

So wide (so wide) you can’t get around it

You must come in at the door

So high (so high) you can’t get over it

So low (so low) you can’t get under it.

So wide (so wide) you can’t get around it

You must come in at the door.
