Lyrics: Let’s Celebrate Jesus

Let’s Celebrate Jesus

Chorus
Let’s celebrate Jesus, let’s celebrate living.
Let’s celebrate knowing the One we adore.
Share with the people the love in the gospel
They won’t turn back to this world anymore.

I get so tired of the bad news around us.
Sometimes my heart gets homesick to go
But we are commissioned to help spread the gospel
We are a light for each wayfaring soul

Repeat Chorus

We like to celebrate every occasion.
Birthdays and ballgames, holiday’s big and small
But let’s take a moment and honor the Savior.
Let’s celebrate the best reason of all.

Where two or three are gathered, He’s with us.
Through preaching and singing, my soul is inspired.
I gather strength from my sisters and brothers
We’re warming up for that Heavenly choir.

Repeat chorus

Let’s celebrate Jesus
Let’s celebrate Jesus
Share with the people the love in the gospel
They won’t turn back to this world anymore.

When You Have Faith In A Great God

Out of the blue maybe you’re having one of those days
Let me tell you what I do when things aren’t going my way
I don’t fold up my tent, I don’t call it quits.
I just call on the same name old Moses did.
Before very long reinforcements are on the way.

Chorus
When you have faith in a great God, He has faith in you.
When you become an instrument, to work a miracle through.
There’s absolutely, positively, nothing you can’t do.
When you have faith in a great God, and He has faith in you.

God spoke to Moses and told him to see Pharaoh.
He said go get my children and tell them I Am told you so.
Now Moses knew he was just one man,
But one’s all you need when God has a plan.
Before very long they were waving so long to Pharaoh.

Repeat Chorus

No there’s absolutely, positively, nothing you can’t do.
When you have faith in a great God, and He has faith in you.
When you have faith in a great God, and He has faith in you.

Somebody In Heaven

Sometimes life tries to keep you down.
Sometimes it’s hard to fight another round.
Maybe you feel like you’re spinning your wheels in vain.
It’s hard to tell where someone’s been
When you’re on the outside looking in.
You just see the rainbow, you don’t notice the rain.

Chorus
I have a burden to pray for you
Somebody in Heaven must have wanted me to
I woke up this morning with you on my mind.
Behind your smile I can see your pain
But I believe angels are whispering your name
They’re telling the Father what you’re going through
Somebody in Heaven sure thinks a lot of you.

So you pray for me and I’ll pray for you
Cause we need each other to make it through
Someday the son’s gonna shine and you’re gonna see.
And sometime when things ain’t going great
When I’m a dollar short and a couple days late
That’s when I’m hoping you’ll say these words to me.

Repeat Chorus

Somebody in Heaven sure thinks a lot of you.

When I Testify

Well I went to church the other day and took a place inside.
The choir began to sing, the air became electrified.
They sang songs about redemption, salvation and new birth.
But when they sang about my Jesus, part of Heaven fell to Earth.

Well the preacher started preachin’, the choir began to sway.
The anointing fell upon me, the Holy Spirit had His way.
When they asked for testimony I couldn’t stand it anymore
I had to stand up, testify and talk about my Lord.

Chorus
When I testify, when I praise the Lord
All my troubles leave through the church house door.
And my worries don’t worry me anymore.
I tell them all goodbye when I testify.

Now when the cold winds of indifference have put your fire out
Maybe you should find a place beneath the Glory spout.
Just stand and testify what Jesus Christ has done for you
And it won’t take very long till you’ll be feeling good as new.
When the praise starts going up the Holy Spirit will descend
And you can jump back, ready to take on this world again.

Repeat Chorus

Lord testify (testify)
Lord testify (testify)
Gonna lift my hands (testify) and praise the Lord testify)
Gonna lift my voice (testify) and praise the Lord (testify)
Gonna tell the word (testify) about my Jesus (testify)
He saved my soul and set me free (testify)
He gave his life, yes on Calvary (testify)
Gonna talk about Jesus (testify)
Gonna talk about Jesus (testify)
Tell everybody about my Lord (testify)
Gonna tesify, gonna testify (testify)
I’ve got to stand and testify (testify)
Does anybody in the house have a testimony?
Yeah, my brother, I really need to testify.

The God Of All Good Things

When death may come, it tries our faith by taking those we know
If we could glimpse the other side, we’d see that God must love them so.

Chorus
My God is a God of all good things.
Each day with Him new blessings bring.
Each miracle born on angels wings.
My God is a God of all good things.

Though disappointments come our way that we can’t understand.
I know that I’m protected safe within the hollow of His hand.

Repeat Chorus

And when at last the trumpet sounds and Christians leave this place.
I’ll join the angels round the throne and lift my voice is highest praise.

Repeat Chorus

My God is a God of all good things.

That Holy Place In Me

So often I have wondered about the majesty of God.
Where does a God this big choose to reside.
He made the stars, the moon, all Heaven
and the Earth is His footstool
And no darkness can conceal His holy light.

Chorus
He dwells in that Holy place where angels sing and blessings flow.
That Holy place where every day another miracle unfolds
Where does the heart of God reside?
Not far away but deep inside.
He dwells in that Holy place.
That Holy place in me.

He built a holy sanctuary, not adorned with jewels or gold.
But with building stones of love, He built this place.
And though it’s not a perfect temple, it’s by His grace He lives in me
And some day I’ll meet the Builder face to face.

Repeat Chorus

Where does the heart of God reside?
Not far away but deep inside.
He dwells in that Holy place, that holy place in me.

The Angels Know Me Name

We are living in the days when fame and fortune
Are the ways we judge the quality of life.
And when many fail to meet these expectations
There’s no second place or consolation prize.

Now for many years I’ve played this game the worlds way.
Never celebrating never satisfied.
Then I heard a voice that changed the way I saw things.
And I found a greater treasure on the hallelujah side.

Chorus
I don’t walk in the circles of the in crowd
Never made a big impression on the fashion industry.
I don’t mingle with the ones who make the headlines.
Not much money falls when you shake my family tree.
But I know who owns the cattle on the hillside
And I’ve knelt before that cross at Calvary.
When it comes to high-rollers, I’m not even in the game.
But I’ve an open line to Heaven, and the angels know my name.

When I think of all the years that I’ve forsaken
At the altar of vanity and pride
I’m just glad I listened when the Savior called me
And He changed the way I saw myself inside.
I don’t really need to hear this world’s approval.
I don’t need to spend my life in search of fame.
All that matters is that I have found salvation
And I’ve got a reservation where the angels know my name.

Repeat Chorus

When it comes to high-rollers, I’m not even in the game
But I’ve an open line to Heaven and the angels know my name.

He Said It All

I’d like to have been there to see Peter’s face
When Jesus said “peace” and the storms they opened
Or when He spoke to the leper,
I’d like to have seen the man’s body made whole when He said “be thou clean.”

Or when He said to the lame man, “Rise up and walk”,
I’m sure those who gathered all started to talk.
What manner of man could heal crippled legs
This Jesus has power in each word that He says

Chorus
When He spoke to the winds and the waves they obeyed
When He called to the tomb, Lazarus rose from the grave
As He hung on the cross, angels listened for His call
But when He said “It is finished”, He said it all.

Now we’ve seen the changes the winds of time bring,
When a man’s words are twisted to mean anything
Where a word and a handshake are old-fashioned thoughts
Where a lie is a shame only if you get caught.

And though we get weary of misdeeds below,
I still know a man whose words good as gold.
Every knee’s gonna bow and the world’s gonna learn
That He meant what He said when He said He’d return

Repeat Chorus

On an old rugged cross, sins debt has been paid.
Glory to the King, He did exactly what He said.

As He hung on the cross, angels listened for His call
But when He said “It is finished”, He said it all.
When He said “It is finished”, He said it all.

Not In A Million Years

Chorus
Not in a million years will I ever know sin or sorrow
All is peace and joy in that bright tomorrow.
Well I’m gonna travel no more
When I reach that golden shore.
I’m gonna never long for this world again.
Not in a million years.

Well my time is short and the way is narrow.
A heavy cross I have to carry.
Sometimes I stumble under my load of care.
But then I get a glimpse of my Savior’s face
And He let’s me know He’s preparing a place
Where I’m never ever going to toil again.
Not in a million years.

Repeat Chorus

Well I used to be a sinner but I wouldn’t be again
For I don’t know when my journey might end.
Anyway, someday, the Lord’s gonna call for me.
Then I’ll lay my burden’s down
Take up my brand new robe and crown
And I’ll never get tired of walking streets of gold,
Not in a million years.

Repeat Chorus

One Day I’ll Be There

I’m gonna never long for this world again.
Not in a million years.

I will rejoice because I have been redeemed.
Mercy lives in me.
Heaven is the place I long to be.
One day, yes one day I’ll see.

Chorus
Gates like nothing below.
Streets of perfect pure gold.
Walls of jasper so rare.
One day, one day I’ll be there.

I will sing cause I have been redeemed.
The cross of Calvary paid for me.
I have peace cause mercy lives in me.
One day sweet heaven I’ll see.

Repeat Chorus

One day, one day I’ll be there.
