Lyrics: Chapter X Live

That’s All He Needs To Know

He’s not impressed by my deeds, no matter how I try.
He doesn’t care if I’m rich or if I’m just getting by.
If I keep to myself or I’m the talk of the town.
It doesn’t matter to Him but if my name’s written down.

Chorus
That’s all He needs to know to lift the weight from my shoulder
And He’ll welcome me in when my life here is over.
As long as my sins are under Calvary’s flow
That’s all He needs to know

When it comes to salvation, I’m glad He doesn’t care
About the car that I drive or the clothes that I wear.
If I’m young or I’m old, if my skin’s black or white.
It doesn’t matter as long as I profess Jesus Christ

Repeat Chorus

Just as long as my sins are under Calvary’s flow

To clarify my position
To confirm my condition.
He knows exactly who I am
When He sees the blood of the Lamb.

Repeat Chorus

Just as long as my sins are under Calvary’s flow
That’s all He needs to know.

Look What Jesus Has Done For Me

Chorus
Look what Jesus has done for me.
He saved my soul and the pardon was free.
With sin in my life He said, “Come unto me.”
Look what Jesus has done for me.
Look what Jesus has done for me.

Repeat Chorus

With sin in her life she came washing His feet.
Without understanding the Pharisee
said, “If He is truly who He claims to be.
He’d know who she was and her heart He would see.

But Jesus said, “Simon, I say unto thee
her sins are forgiven, cause she came to me.
She left there rejoicing cause He met her need.
She said, “See what Jesus has done for me.”

Repeat Chorus

My days without Jesus were dusty and dry.
The rest of my life was the darkest of night.
But mercy and grace for the asking was free.
Through His sacrifice He has done this for me.

Repeat Chorus 2x

With sin in my life He said, “Come unto me.”
Look what Jesus has done for me.
Look what Jesus has done for me.

God Has Provided A Lamb

Abraham faced a mountain with an uncertain task.
Isaac walked with him, for God had asked
That a sacrifice be made on an altar of stone.
Facing the mountain, Abraham journeyed on.

At the top of the mountain, an altar they made.
And after preparations, there Isaac was laid
When a voice from the heavens spoke to Abraham.
Touch not the lad, God has provided a ram.

He provided a ram whose blood clensed and saves
He provided a ram, and atonement was paid.
His only son Isaac on the altar lay down.
God had provided a ram.

I once faced a mountain.
Sin was it’s name.
With no way around it, years I struggled in vain.
Till I knelt at an altar.
It was there that I found.
God has provided a Lamb.

Chorus
He provided a Lamb whose blood cleansed and saves
He provided a Lamb, and atonement was paid.
His only son Jesus on the altar lay down.
God had provided a Lamb.

I stood in judgment in sin all alone.
Until the blood that flowed from Calvary
Made me spotless before the throne.

Repeat Chorus

Provided a Lamb

He’s My Hiding Place

The battle began in Garden of Eden
When Satan laid hold on the soul of a man.
Sowing seeds of destruction and fear all down through the ages.
To lead men away from that beautiful land.

As the battle goes on, many soldiiers have fallen.
For the enemy forces have weakened their will.
But I’m trusting in One who has never lost a battle.
For sin was defeated on Calvary’s hill.

Chorus
And He is my sword and shield in the heat of the battle.
He is my Councilor and friend full of mercy and grace.
My Jesus is steadfast and true when the world stands against me.
He is my cleft in the mighty rock, He’s my hiding place.

When the children of Israel came up to the Red Sea
They were unwilling to give up their lives to the Pharaoh’s command.
They called on a mighty God and the waters divided.
And safely He led them across the dry land.

Repeat Chorus

And He is my sword and my shield in the heat of the battle.
He is my cleft in the mighty rock, He’s my hiding place.
He’s my hiding place.

Angels Walking Around

When you’re walkin’ down the street (angels, walkin’ around)
Well you never know friend who you might meet. (angels, walkin’ around)
If a poor beggar man begs you for bread. (angels, walkin’ around)
Well you better do what the Savior said. (angels, walkin’ around)
And take him to your place of abode (Wahooo)
You better feed that man you found on the road.

Chorus
God’ll bless you children (oh yeah)
God’ll bless you children (oh yeah)
Cause the angels are walkin’ around
Because the angels are walkin’ around.

When you help your neighbor you better take care (angels, walkin’ around)
Cause some have seen angels unaware. (angels, walkin’ around)
And you never know friend when you might too. (angels, walkin’ around)
Let me ask you brother, what would you do (angels, walkin’ around)
If a man needed shelter came to your door (wahooo)
Would you turn him away, would you tell him no?

Repeat Chorus

And when it comes my time to die
The Lord will send angels from on high.
Some will fly high and some will fly low
Carry me to that city of gold
And when I reach that promised land
I’m gonna take them angels hand in hand
Gonna walk right down the streets of gold.
Gonna tell the half that yet been told.

Repeat Chorus 2x

Because the angels are wlakin’ around
Because the angels are walking around

Worryin’

I kept a worryin’, worryin’, worryin’, worryin’
Worryin’ all day and night.
I kept a worryin’, worryin’, worryin’, worryin’
Nothin’ seemed to go right.
I’d wake up mornings with a troubled mind.
Spend the day pretending I was feeling fine.
But I was worryin’, worryin’, worryin’, worryin
Worryin’ all of the time.

Then one day, one wonderful day.
I let the Lord take hold of the reigns
He led me out of the valley low and put my feet on a higher plain.
He put a wonderful, marvelous, glorious feeling
Down inside this heart of mine.
And now my worryin’, worryin’, worryin’, worryin’,
Worryin’ days are behind.

Then one day, one wonderful day.
I let the Lord take hold of the reigns
He led me out of the valley low and put my feet on a higher plain.
He put a wonderful, marvelous, glorious feeling
Down inside this heart of mine.
And now my worryin’, my worryin’, my worryin’, my worryin’,
my worryin’, worryin’, worryin’, worryin’,
Worryin’ days are behind.

He Gave It To Me

I’ve received His mercy though I’m undeserving.
Good deeds that I have done can’t justify
Why I receive His grace.
Why He should take my place
And for the wrongs that I have done, why He should die.

And as a vessel for His truth, I’m so unworthy.
My tongue cannot proclaim His holiness.
Lord a stronger one that I should stand to testify
But all I do for you, I’ll do my best.

Chorus
They didn’t take me to a place called Calvary’s mountain.
They didn’t take my hands and nail them to a tree.
They didn’t take one drop of blood.
It had already been done.
And it didn’t take me long till I could see
That they did not take His life away.
He gave it to me.

And I wonder, did He know that I’d be searching
For some meaning to fill the emptiness inside?
My life is just the span of an unimportant man.
But perhaps He thought of me before He died.

Repeat Chorus

They did not take His life away.
He gave it to me.
He gave it to me.

Holy Ghost Revival

Chorus
We need an old fashioned
Heaven-sent Holy Ghost revival
Touching me, touching you
We need a sin-erasing
Restoration, Holy Ghost revival
Send it Lord, our souls renew

The church has learned to make things happen on the natural side
All our buildings and our programs, they have not turned the tide
This is warfare and our weapons, faith the Word and love
We need a fresh anointing from above

Repeat Chorus

If we want the power God has promised at the last
We won’t find it stirring in the ashes of the past
There’s a new day a dawning, pray and lift up holy hands
Revival fires will sweep across the land

Repeat chorus 3x

We need an old-fashioned, heaven-sent
sin-erasing Restoration,
Soul-saving, Devil-chasing, Holy Ghost revival
Send it Lord, our souls renew
Send it Lord, our souls renew

Bishops Hits Medley

He’s in the midst of our storm
He’s in the valley we walk through
Where two or three are gathered in his name, He’ll be there too
When you feel so all alone
He is standing next to you.
He’s with us now, He’s in the midst.

Every step I take I know I’m drawing nearer.
For the thoughts of worldly wealth mean less each day.
The things I used to think were so important
Now they seem to just be in the way

I’m so glad He’s offered all of us salvation
For we’d have no hope if He had not come down.
He sees each and every heartache.
Every burden that we carry.
And He whispers soon you’ll trade them for a crown.

Though the road is long and hard and I may stumble.
And the world claims victory when I am down.
But through it all I’m still clinging to the promise.
For every cross there is a crown.

I need you more today than I did yesterday.
Help me remember I need you more today.

When this world says our Lord is dead.
They can’t find proof in what they’ve said.
They seek a grave where His body’s laid, this story to end.
But I’ll take them to a garden tomb.
Show them that hollow empty room.
His story lives on, He’s risen, he’s gone.
He’s living again.

He’s living again, He reigns from on high
Oh yes, it’s true, He came here to die.
He rose from the grave. Rolled that stone away.
I’m glad to say, He’s living again.

And I’m glad to say I’ll live again…

Some resurrection morning, if I’m buried deep.
If in death I’ve closed my eyes and I’ve been laid to sleep.
Well don’t worry about me brother.
A promise has been made.
As soon as I hear that trumpet sound, I’ll come up out of that grave.

I’ll live again. I’ll live again.
No matter how deep the grave, no matter how wide.
When I hear that trumpet sound,
This body of mine will come out of the ground.
In the twinkling of an eye,
I’ll live again.

I’ll live again. I’ll live again.
No matter how deep the grave, no matter how wide.
When I hear that trumpet sound,
This body of mine will come out of the ground.
In the twinkling of an eye,
I’ll live again.

In the twinkling of an eye,
I’ll live again.

Lazarus, Come Forth

Heartbroken, tears falling
Martha found Jesus
She questioned why Lazarus had died.
When she had thus spoken, her doubts were then silenced.
He walked toward the body and cried.

Chorus
Lazarus, come forth.
Awake like the morning.
Arise with new hope, a new life is born.
Lazarus, come forth.
From death now awaken.
For Jesus has spoken.
Death’s chains have been broken.
Lazarus, come forth.

The tomb now was empty.
Martha stopped crying.
Her brother now stood by her side.
The Pharisee’s wondered about what had happened.
How could one now live who had died?

The reason this story gives hope to so many
Is although we know we must die.
Our bodies won’t stay there
In cold and dark silence.
We’ll hear Jesus cry from on high.

Children come forth
Awake like the morning.
Arise with new hope, a new life is born.
Children come forth.
From death now awaken.
For Jesus has spoken.
Death’s chains have been broken.
Children come forth.

For Jesus has spoken.
Death’s chains have been broken.
My Children come forth.
Children come forth.
Children, come forth.

 

Lyrics: A Legacy Of Hits

He’s In The Midst

Chorus
He’s in the midst of our storm
He’s in the valley we walk through
Where two or three are gathered in his name, He’ll be there too
When you feel so all alone
He is standing next to you.
He’s with us now, our Lord, He’s in the midst.

As you travel down life’s road, He is with you every day.
With every step you take, He’s walked ahead of you.
And every night as you lay down, angels are camping all around.
I’ll never be alone, for He is in the midst.

Repeat Chorus

Into the prison they were thrown
Paul and Silas weren’t alone.
They knew their God was there and He would see them through.
So when the walls began to shake
And all their chains just fell away
They cried Behold our God, for He is in the midst.

Repeat Chorus

He’s with us now. He’s in the midst.

I Need You More Today

There are decisions I can’t make on my own.
And there are trials I can’t face all alone.
But you said you’d walk with me down life’s troubled road.
And you said come unto me, I’ll bear your heavy load.

Chorus
I need you more today than I did yesterday.
Mountains are higher, rivers are wider.
I need you more today than I did yesterday.
Help me remember I need you more today.

When I wake up in the morning and I fear to face the day
Let me feel your gentle hand leading the way.
Yesterday has come and gone with those trials far behind.
But I’m ever learning Lord, and every day I find.

Repeat Chorus 2x

Help me remember I need you more today.

God’s Amazing Grace

His death on the cross was the key to the plan.
The plan of salvation for the world.
Marvelous his light will shine while eternity rolls on.
Thanks is not enough for God’s amazing grace.

Chorus
He hung on a cross at Mount Calv’ry
So the world through him might be saved.
They denied him. Crucified him.
And they placed him a grave.
There’s nothing like God’s amazing Grace.

Words just cannot explain all the love the name.
The name of King Jesus – He’s my lord.
Oh, when the trump of God shall sound and He makes His presence known.
We just cannot praise him for the love that he has shown.

Repeat Chorus

They denied him. Crucified him.
And they placed him a grave.
There’s nothing like God’s amazing Grace.
There is nothing like God’s amazing Grace.

That Sounds Like Someone I’d Like To Know

They say they saw Him walking on the water.
They say He raised old Lazarus from the dead.
They say four thousand people came to dinner.
And He fed them all with seven loaves of bread.
The whole town’s talking about that man from Galilee.
They’re claiming all these miracles are fact.
Now I’ve been hearing rumors that they’re gonna crucify Him,
And in three days He says He’s coming back.

Chorus
That sounds like someone I’d like to know.
That sounds like someone I’d like to know.
Every situation is under His control.
That sounds like someone I’d like to know.

Two thousand years have nearly come and gone now.
It’s funny how some people never change.
Just as they did back in the days of Jesus.
They still deny the power in His name.
But someday soon He’ll split that Eastern sky wide open.
Convincing unbelievers they were wrong.
They’re running out of time, they should be making up their minds.
But as for me, it won’t take very long.

Repeat Chorus

Alpha and Omega
Beginning and the End
He’s King of Kings and one more thing
He’s my greatest friend.

Repeat Chorus

Every situation is under His control
That sounds like someone I’d like to know.

Blind Bartimaeus

Chorus
Well old blind Bartimaeus stood on the way, blind
Blind Bartimaeus stood on the way.
Well old blind Bartimaeus stood on the way, crying
Oh Lord, have mercy on me

In my God’s bible, the word proclaims
that Christ went healing the crippled and the lame.
He gave to the poor and the needy bread.
Healing the sick and raising the dead.
And then when He came to Galilee.
He passed by a man that could not see
Well, the main was blind, he was blind for birth.
They tell me that his name was Blind Bartimaeus.

Repeat Chorus

When Bartimaeus heard that the Lord was nigh,
He fell on his knees and began to crying
Oh thou man of Galilee
Cryin’ great God Almighty, have mercy on me.
Crying Oh Lord, (Mary’s baby)
Oh Lord, (Son of David)
Oh Lord, (Bleeding Lamb)
Oh, my Lord from in Bethlehem

Then my Lord, He stopped and He turned around
And He saw Blind Bartimaeus on the ground
And He touched his eyes with the palm of His hand
Blind Bartimaeus saw like a natural man.

He cried Thank God
Thank God
Thank God
Thank my God from in Bethlehem.

Repeat Chorus

He’s Living Again

Three days in misery and dread, knowing that Christ our Lord was dead.
Mary arose that first Easter morn and went to the tomb.
Peter and John came following on and when they found the Savior gone.
As they turned to go, John said with a glow, He’s living again.

Chorus
He’s living again, He reigns from on high
Oh yes, it’s true, He came here to die.
He rose from the grave. Rolled that stone away.
I’m glad to say, He’s living again.

When this world says our Lord is dead.
They can’t find proof in what they’ve said.
They seek a grave where His body’s laid, this story to end.
But I’ll take them to a garden tomb.
Show them that hollow empty room.
His story lives on, He’s risen, he’s gone.
He’s living again.

Repeat Chorus

And I’m glad to say

Repeat Chorus

And I’m glad to say
He’s living again (living again)
He’s living again.

Oh God, I Love You

We know that the time is near, very clear, that Christ shall appear
And time will be no more when He comes.
And light that shines from Him will be bright, and never grow dim
And God Himself will wipe away all tears.

Chorus
Oh God, I know that you really care
Oh God, I know that you answer prayer
Oh God, I know you’ll always be there
Oh God, Oh God, I love you.

Some day the Heaven’s shall depart like a scroll
And the stars shall fall for the great day of His wrath is come
And who shall be able to stand?
And there stood before the throne and Lamb the multitude
With palms in their hands open wide
And their voices crying salvation to our God.

Repeat Chorus 2x

For Every Cross There Is A Crown

Every step I take I know I’m drawing nearer.
For the thoughts of worldly wealth mean less each day.
The things I used to think were so important
Now they seem to just be in the way

I’m so glad He’s offered all of us salvation
For we’d have no hope if He had not come down.
He sees each and every heartache.
Every burden that we carry.
And He whispers soon you’ll trade them for a crown.

Chorus
Though the road is long and hard and I may stumble.
And the world claims victory when I am down.
But through it all I’m still clinging to the promise.
For every cross there is a crown.

The decision’s yours, be careful how you make it.
There’s a choice to make and you must take a stand.
there are a million souls who die without salvation
And they would trade the world away for one more chance.

The greatest miracle taken for granted,
Is that the Son of God has died for you and me.
And though the world tries to ignore Him, I must shout how I adore Him
Though the devil rages, Jesus I’ll believe.

Repeat Chorus

But through it all, I’m still clinging to the promise.
For every cross there is a crown.
A crown.

Look To Him

When the storms of doubt within your life are raging.
When all hope is gone, no answer can be found.
Remember there is one who never will forsake you.
Trust in Jesus, for He will never let you down.

Chorus
Look to Him, keep your eyes upon the Savior.
Trust in Jesus, the one who really cares.
Put your hand in the hand of the man who never fails.
When you need a friend, look to Him.

Now with a childlike faith, you can move your mountain.
With a simple prayer, your answer can be found.
Don’t turn away, there is no one else to turn to.
Don’t give up, for He will never let you down.

I’ll Live Again

Jesus stood at the tomb of Lazarus, he commanded him to come forth.
The people, they stood in awe as Lazarus walked out of the door.
Mary and Martha cried at once.
He was dead but now he’s alive
Jesus said I’m the Resurrection. Lazarus lives again.

Chorus
I’ll live again. I’ll live again.
No matter how deep the grave, no matter how wide.
When I hear that trumpet sound,
This body of mine will come out of the ground.
In the twinkling of an eye,
I’ll live again.

Ezekiel prophesied and the bones they came together.
Again he prophesied and the flesh came up on them.
Ezekiel prophesied unto the four winds.
Well they stood on their feet and they started to breath,
Those bones they lived again.

Some resurrection morning, if I’m buried deep.
If in death I’ve closed my eyes and I’ve been laid to sleep.
Well don’t worry about me brother.
A promise has been made.
As soon as I hear that trumpet sound, I’ll come up out of that grave.

Repeat Chorus 2x

In the twinkling of an eye
I’ll live again.

He’s My Hiding Place

The battle began in Garden of Eden
When Satan laid hold on the soul of a man.
Sowing seeds of destruction and fear all down through the ages.
To lead men away from that beautiful land.

As the battle goes on, many soldiiers have fallen.
For the enemy forces have weakened their will.
But I’m trusting in One who has never lost a battle.
For sin was defeated on Calvary’s hill.

Chorus
And He is my sword and shield in the heat of the battle.
He is my Councilor and friend full of mercy and grace.
My Jesus is steadfast and true when the world stands against me.
He is my cleft in the mighty rock, He’s my hiding place.

When the children of Israel came up to the Red Sea
They were unwilling to give up their lives to the Pharaoh’s command.
They called on a mighty God and the waters divided.
And safely He led them across the dry land.

Repeat Chorus

And He is my sword and my shield in the heat of the battle.
He is my cleft in the mighty rock, He’s my hiding place.

Lyrics: You Can’t Ask Too Much Of My God

You Can’t Ask Too Much of My God

Possum Run Music / BMI / Centergy Music / BMI

When David gathered a handful of stones,
And where the soldiers had fallen, he waited alone.
With a prayer and a little rock, the giant fell right on the spot.
That’s what David prayed for, that’s what David got.
You can’t ask too much of my God.
You can’t ask too much of my God.

There was a woman drawing water from a well.
So many regrets, so often she’d failed.
Jesus knew where she had been; still He forgave her of her sin.
In her life began to flow, living water for the soul.
You can’t ask too much of my God.
You can’t ask too much of my God.

Chorus
When you’re broken
And you cannot find the peace of mind that seems to leave you behind
Have you spoken to the God of Abraham, the Great I Am?
He’s greater than any problem you’ve got.
And you can’t ask too much of my God.
No you can’t ask too much of my God.

Upon the three Hebrew children God smiled.
And when Sarah was ninety, God gave her a child.
Now I believe that just as then, He’s here to move like that again.
He has a miracle to do; He only needs to hear from you.
And you can’t ask too much of my God.
No you can’t ask too much of my God.

He Will Never Forsake You

Each day brought disappointment.
It seemed each one was for me.
My life was going nowhere
My hopes turned to shattered dreams.
Then a voice so gently beckoned
I have always been around.
I will never leave you lonely
I will never let you down.

Chorus
He knows when you’re alone and sad with no one to call your friend
And every time you may fall, He’ll pick you up again.
And when you need a helping hand, He will always be around.
He will never forsake you; My Lord will never let you down.

Even in your darkest hours
When you feel so all alone.
You can call on the name of Jesus.
He hears your earnest call.
The answer is soon coming.
For He knows what is the gain.
My Lord will never forsake you.
He will never let you down.

Repeat Chorus

He will never forsake you. My Lord will never let you down.

You Never Know

Chorus
You never know (never know)
When He calls (when He calls)
But you know when you’re living right.
You never know when He calls,
So you better get the job done right.

Won’t you tell Him all about the family.
Won’t you tell Him all about your job.
Tell Him all about your problems.
You’re talking to the Son of God.

You’re talking to the One who answers.
He answers in the middle of the night.
You’re talking to the One who never fails.
You’re talking to the Man on high.

Repeat Chorus

Don’t be like the friends of Noah.
They were knocking and a banging on the door.
They waiting and they hesitated one day too long
And the rains began to poor.

No doubt they cried my Father,
Have mercy on the children for their sins.
They began to knocking when the boat began to rocking
But the hand of God would never let them in.

You never know (never know)
When He calls (ya never know)
You never know (never know)
When He calls (ya never know)
In the morning (never know, ya never know)
In the evening (never know ,never know)
You never know (never know, ya never know, never know, ya never know)

Repeat Chorus

Ya never know when He calls
So you better get the job done right.

When Jesus Is All That I Have

I don’t worry about the rain or the storm clouds
Or the trouble Satan has for me today.
Though the very best in Hell may rise against me,
There’s a greater power standing in his way.

I don’t fret about the news or the headlines
Or a world that has the devil yet to pay.
I’ve been bought by the blood of the Savior
And I rest assured good news is on the way.

Chorus
When Jesus is all that I have, He’s all that I need. (all that I need, He is all that I need)
Abundantly more than enough to face my enemies (abundantly more than enough for my need)
Though the thunder rolls around me and the lightning flash surrounds me
Though the adversary drives me to my knees.
When Jesus is all that I have, He’s all that I need.

If you carry a burden on your shoulders
And you can’t escape the chains that have you bound.
If you hear Satan laugh through hollow promises,
Let me tell you of the victory I’ve found.

Repeat Chorus

Though the thunder rolls around me and the lightning flash surrounds me
Though the adversary drives me to my knees.
When Jesus is all that I have, He’s all that I need.

When Jesus is all that I have
When Jesus is all that I have
When Jesus is all that I have
He’s all that I need.

Love Did

Love was born one starry night. God’s promise was fulfilled.
This child would be our Savior, Lord and Friend.
He came to touch this hurting world so broken lives could be healed.
And he proved it when He died and rose again.

Chorus
Love did everything His word said it would.
Love did so much more than we ever dreamed it could.
When He was hanging on the hill, suffering for our sins.
Nails didn’t keep Him on the cross, Love did.

Arms of grace are reaching out, holding mercy, holding hope.
The open heart of God is there for you.
You may be a prisoner of your past and feel so all alone.
But it doesn’t matter whatever you’ve been through.

Repeat Chorus 2x

Nails didn’t keep Him on the cross, Love did.

Entertaining Angels

I feel a presence oh so near.
Seems I can almost hear the angels singing.
It’s got to be angels.

Coming down from God above.
To cover me with wings of love, it must be angels.
Heavenly angels.

They must be standing near me now.
They must be camping all around me.

Chorus
Entertaining angels.
Angels unaware.
Watching over you and me.
Hearing our every prayer.
Ready any moment to be at your side.
No matter where you are, you’ll never be too far.
There will be angels. Angels unaware.

Did you know the man today
That stopped to help you on your way
Was it an angel?

Palms Of Victory

I saw a wayward traveler in tattered garments clad
And struggling up the mountain, it seemed that he was sad.
His back was heavy laden. His strength was almost gone.
Yet he shouted as he traveled, deliverance has come.

Chorus
Then palms (palms) of victory. Crowns (crowns) of glory.
Palms (palms) of victory, I shall wear.

I saw him in the evening. The sun was sinking low
It overcame the mountain and reached the vale below.
HE saw that golden city. His everlasting home.
And shouted loud Hosanna. Deliverance will come.

Repeat Chorus

While gazing on that city just o’er the narrow flood.
A band of holy angels came from the throne of God.
They bore him on their pinions. Save o’er the dashing foam.
And joined him in his triumph.
Deliverance has come.

Repeat Chorus

It seems I hear the angels around the throne so grand.
They’re shouting glad Hosanna’s, we’ve reached the Promised Land.
When we have reached that city. Our race on earth we’ve run.
We’ll all should loud Hosanna’s, deliverance has come

Repeat Chorus 3x

My God Is Watching Over Me

I’ve been hungry with no supply.
I’ve been thirsty, parched and dry.
I’ve been lonely without a friend.
I’ve been lost and bound in sin.

But when I was hungry He was my bread of life.
When I was thirsty He was my spring of living water.
When I was lonely He called me friend.
And when I was lost He took me in.

Chorus
My God is watching over me.
My God is watching over me.
Wherever I am, whatever it is He’s big enough to lead.
Through the circumstance and my frustration.
He’s the God of the situation.
My God is watching over me.
My God is watching over me.

I’ve been weary, tired and worn.
I’ve been troubled and brought to scorn.
I’ve been been discouraged and ready to give in.
I’ve had frustrations that seem to never end.

But when I was weary He was my strength and might.
When I was troubled He was my peace all through the night.
When I was discouraged I found the will to fight and win.
In my frustrations He comes through again.

Yes He’s my father, He’s a God who meets my needs.
There’ll never be a problem where He fails to intercede.
Whatever it is He’s big enough to lead.
My God is watching over me.

Repeat Chorus 2x

My God is watching over me.
My God is watching over me.

It Takes the Blood

Could you imagine a sky that holds no stars?
Or hands and feet divine that bear no scars?
You’ll never find the ocean empty, or the holy tomb that’s full.
Or a righteous man without the blood applied.

Chorus
It takes the blood to fully cleanse us of our sins.
Without the blood our life is hopeless and death the bitter end.
But the Lamb of God was slain to make provision for the claim.
“I claim the cleansing flood.”
It takes the blood.

Can you imagine morning’s dawn without the sun?
Or God as losing every battle that He’d won?
You’ll never know the sweet bird’s song or prove God’s word to once be wrong.
Or know the risen Lamb without the blood applied.

Repeat Chorus

I claim the cleansing flood.
I claim the cleansing flood.
I claim the cleansing flood.
It takes the blood.

Lyrics: Classics Live

He’s In The Midst

Chorus
He’s in the midst of our storm
He’s in the valley we walk through
Where two or three are gathered in his name, He’ll be there too
When you feel so all alone
He is standing next to you.
He’s with us now, our Lord, He’s in the midst.

As you travel down life’s road, He is with you every day.
With every step you take, He’s walked ahead of you.
And every night as you lay down, angels are camping all around.
I’ll never be alone, for He is in the midst.

Repeat Chorus

Into the prison they were thrown
Paul and Silas weren’t alone.
They knew their God was there and He would see them through.
So when the walls began to shake
And all their chains just fell away
They cried Behold our God, for He is in the midst.

Repeat Chorus

He’s with us now. He’s in the midst.

That Sounds Like Someone I’d Like To Know

They say they saw Him walking on the water.
They say He raised old Lazarus from the dead.
They say four thousand people came to dinner.
And He fed them all with seven loaves of bread.
The whole town’s talking about that man from Galilee.
They’re claiming all these miracles are fact.
Now I’ve been hearing rumors that they’re gonna crucify Him,
And in three days He says He’s coming back.

Chorus
That sounds like someone I’d like to know.
That sounds like someone I’d like to know.
Every situation is under His control.
That sounds like someone I’d like to know.

Two thousand years have nearly come and gone now.
It’s funny how some people never change.
Just as they did back in the days of Jesus.
They still deny the power in His name.
But someday soon He’ll split that Eastern sky wide open.
Convincing unbelievers they were wrong.
They’re running out of time, they should be making up their minds.
But as for me, it won’t take very long.

Repeat Chorus

Alpha and Omega
Beginning and the End
He’s King of Kings and one more thing
He’s my greatest friend.

Repeat Chorus

Every situation is under His control
That sounds like someone I’d like to know.

He’s My Hiding Place

The battle began in Garden of Eden
When Satan laid hold on the soul of a man.
Sowing seeds of destruction and fear all down through the ages.
To lead men away from that beautiful land.

As the battle goes on, many soldiiers have fallen.
For the enemy forces have weakened their will.
But I’m trusting in One who has never lost a battle.
For sin was defeated on Calvary’s hill.

Chorus
And He is my sword and shield in the heat of the battle.
He is my Councilor and friend full of mercy and grace.
My Jesus is steadfast and true when the world stands against me.
He is my cleft in the mighty rock, He’s my hiding place.

When the children of Israel came up to the Red Sea
They were unwilling to give up their lives to the Pharaoh’s command.
They called on a mighty God and the waters divided.
And safely He led them across the dry land.

Repeat Chorus

And He is my sword and my shield in the heat of the battle.
He is my cleft in the mighty rock, He’s my hiding place.
He’s my hiding place.

He’s Living Again

Three days in misery and dread, knowing that Christ our Lord was dead.
Mary arose that first Easter morn and went to the tomb.
Peter and John came following on and when they found the Savior gone.
As they turned to go, John said with a glow, He’s living again.

Chorus
He’s living again, He reigns from on high
Oh yes, it’s true, He came here to die.
He rose from the grave. Rolled that stone away.
I’m glad to say, He’s living again.

When this world says our Lord is dead.
They can’t find proof in what they’ve said.
They seek a grave where His body’s laid, this story to end.
But I’ll take them to a garden tomb.
Show them that hollow empty room.
His story lives on, He’s risen, he’s gone.
He’s living again.

Repeat Chorus

And I’m glad to say

Repeat Chorus

And I’m glad to say
He’s living again (living again)
He’s living again.

For Every Cross There Is A Crown

Every step I take I know I’m drawing nearer.
For the thoughts of worldly wealth mean less each day.
The things I used to think were so important
Now they seem to just be in the way

I’m so glad He’s offered all of us salvation
For we’d have no hope if He had not come down.
He sees each and every heartache.
Every burden that we carry.
And He whispers soon you’ll trade them for a crown.

Chorus
Though the road is long and hard and I may stumble.
And the world claims victory when I am down.
But through it all I’m still clinging to the promise.
For every cross there is a crown.

The decision’s yours, be careful how you make it.
There’s a choice to make and you must take a stand.
there are a million souls who die without salvation
And they would trade the world away for one more chance.

The greatest miracle taken for granted,
Is that the Son of God has died for you and me.
And though the world tries to ignore Him, I must shout how I adore Him
Though the devil rages, Jesus I’ll believe.

Repeat Chorus

But through it all, I’m still clinging to the promise.
For every cross there is a crown.
A crown.

Blind Bartimaeus

Chorus
Well old blind Bartimaeus stood on the way, blind
Blind Bartimaeus stood on the way.
Well old blind Bartimaeus stood on the way, crying
Oh Lord, have mercy on me

In my God’s bible, the word proclaims
that Christ went healing the crippled and the lame.
He gave to the poor and the needy bread.
Healing the sick and raising the dead.
And then when He came to Galilee.
He passed by a man that could not see
Well, the main was blind, he was blind for birth.
They tell me that his name was Blind Bartimaeus.

Repeat Chorus

When Bartimaeus heard that the Lord was nigh,
He fell on his knees and began to crying
Oh thou man of Galilee
Cryin’ great God Almighty, have mercy on me.
Crying Oh Lord, (Mary’s baby)
Oh Lord, (Son of David)
Oh Lord, (Bleeding Lamb)
Oh, my Lord from in Bethlehem

Then my Lord, He stopped and He turned around
And He saw Blind Bartimaeus on the ground
And He touched his eyes with the palm of His hand
Blind Bartimaeus saw like a natural man.

He cried Thank God
Thank God
Thank God
Thank my God from in Bethlehem.

Repeat Chorus

I Need You More Today

There are decisions I can’t make on my own.
And there are trials I can’t face all alone.
But you said you’d walk with me down life’s troubled road.
And you said come unto me, I’ll bear your heavy load.

Chorus
I need you more today than I did yesterday.
Mountains are higher, rivers are wider.
I need you more today than I did yesterday.
Help me remember I need you more today.

When I wake up in the morning and I fear to face the day
Let me feel your gentle hand leading the way.
Yesterday has come and gone with those trials far behind.
But I’m ever learning Lord, and every day I find.

Repeat Chorus 2x

Help me remember I need you more today.

I’ll Live Again

Jesus stood at the tomb of Lazarus, he commanded him to come forth.
The people, they stood in awe as Lazarus walked out of the door.
Mary and Martha cried at once.
He was dead but now he’s alive
Jesus said I’m the Resurrection. Lazarus lives again.

Chorus
I’ll live again. I’ll live again.
No matter how deep the grave, no matter how wide.
When I hear that trumpet sound,
This body of mine will come out of the ground.
In the twinkling of an eye,
I’ll live again.

Ezekiel prophesied and the bones they came together.
Again he prophesied and the flesh came up on them.
Ezekiel prophesied unto the four winds.
Well they stood on their feet and they started to breath,
Those bones they lived again.

Some resurrection morning, if I’m buried deep.
If in death I’ve closed my eyes and I’ve been laid to sleep.
Well don’t worry about me brother.
A promise has been made.
As soon as I hear that trumpet sound, I’ll come up out of that grave.

Repeat Chorus 2x

In the twinkling of an eye
I’ll live again.

Lazarus, Come Forth

Heartbroken, tears falling
Martha found Jesus
She questioned why Lazarus had died.
When she had thus spoken, her doubts were then silenced.
He walked toward the body and cried.

Chorus
Lazarus, come forth.
Awake like the morning.
Arise with new hope, a new life is born.
Lazarus, come forth.
From death now awaken.
For Jesus has spoken.
Death’s chains have been broken.
Lazarus, come forth.

The tomb now was empty.
Martha stopped crying.
Her brother now stood by her side.
The Pharisee’s wondered about what had happened.
How could one now live who had died?

The reason this story gives hope to so many
Is although we know we must die.
Our bodies won’t stay there
In cold and dark silence.
We’ll hear Jesus cry from on high.

Children come forth
Awake like the morning.
Arise with new hope, a new life is born.
Children come forth.
From death now awaken.
For Jesus has spoken.
Death’s chains have been broken.
Children come forth.

For Jesus has spoken.
Death’s chains have been broken.
My Children come forth.
Children come forth.
Children, come forth.

I’m Gonna Move

Chorus
I’m gonna move on up to glory.
I’m gonna take Him by the hand.
He’ll lead me through this lonesome valley and take me to the promised land.
And when I get there I’ll see Him face to face.
Oh glory what joy divine.
And when I move on up to glory we’re gonna have a shouting time.

I feel His presence. He’s all around us.
Oh, I can feel Him in the air.
Just to know He’s my savior and that He is always there.
When the sun shines or when the rain falls.
When the wind and waves blow high.
I’m gonna move on up to glory when He splits the eastern sky.

Repat Chorus

Well if I could only tell you of all the joy that floods my soul.
All the heavens would go asunder.
Only God’s people can know.
If you want to feel Him just get down on your knees and pour out your heart to Him.
He will fill you until your cup overflows so be ready He’s coming again.

Repeat Chorus

And when I move on up to glory we’re gonna have a shouting time.

And the strengths gonna come like a natural man.

Oh I want to be a witness (for my Lord)
Tell me who’ll be a witness (for my Lord)
Well I’ll be a witness (for my Lord)
And I’ll be a witness (for my Lord)
And I’m another witness (for my Lord)

A Rose Among The Thorns

While strolling through the fields of time there’s many things to see.
But nature is the greatest site that there could ever be.
The greatest of them all to me is how the world was formed.
And why the roses have to live, each day among the thorns.

Repeat Chorus

One day among a world of thorns a Rose began to grow.
It was the greatest gift of God this world will ever know.
It was the will of God to show that since the world was formed
There had to be a Rose to live and die among the thorns.

Two thousand years will soon be gone since God looked down in love.
There in the town of Bethlehem a Rose began to bud.
It lived to bloom until one day was crushed with awful frown.
And then in love from God above
Was moved to higher ground.

Repeat Chorus

There had to be a Rose to live and die among the thorns.

Hiding Like Elijah

Once Elijah being tempted by Jehovah’s foes
Fled for refuge to the mountains when a storm arose
There he found a safe pavilion where he could reside
I am hiding (like Elijah) from the storm outside.

Chorus
I am hiding like Elijah in the rifted stone.
And sometimes I feel just like him that I can’t go on.
Then a voice from Heaven whispers in the rock abide.
I am hiding (like Elijah) from the storm outside.

When the clouds of sorrow gather like raging storm
And the way is dark before me, I shall fear no harm
I am trusting in my Savior what so ere betide
I am hiding (like Elijah) from the storm outside

Repeat Chorus

There are many other Christians in this world today
I can feel the spirit moving when I hear them pray
And it gives me consolation when my soul is tried
I am hiding like Elijah from the storm outside.

The mighty power of God filled the air

Gonna wade right in (to the rushing water)
I’m going down (going down) to the River of Jordan

And this mighty river I may never see.
But I’ll find myself and altar at an old fashioned church
And my River of Jordan that will be.

Where the teachers gathered round.
They ain’t never heard such wisdom that they couldn’t figure out.
That they couldn’t figure out.

But he said this here’s a man.
That old John ain’t fit to baptize cause He’s greater than I am.
Child He’s greater than I am.

They say He has great compassion.
He healed the sick and blind.
He made a lame man walk and turned the water into wine.

Child they mocked Him all day long.
Old Pilot washed his hands and said
This man ain’t done no wrong.
No He aint done nothin’ wrong.

They hung Him on a wooden cross
A bleedin’ and alone.
His body bruised and battered but His spirit up and gone.
Child His spirit up and gone.

With soldiers at the door.

Sayin’ “He ain’t here no more.”

‘fore you lay your head to rest.
I know this here story’s true
’cause it’s what the Bible says.

In A Land Where No Cabins Fall

As my mind wanders back
To the quaint little shack
Where in childhood I used to play.
There with mother and dad
We were happy and glad
As we’d while the sweet moments away.
We would all kneel in prayer
And in reverence there
We would praise the redeemer above.
Now in silence I pine
For that old home of mine
And I long for that mother’s love

Chorus
I’d like to go back
To the dear little tumbled down shack
Yes I’d like to spend a day
Where in childhood I used to play
But time won’t turn back
We must travel till Jesus shall call
Then we’ll be happy and free
In a land where no cabin’s fall

Let me linger today where I once used to play
Round the little log cabin home
Oh how sweet it would be
My dear mother to see and with playmates once more there to roam
How we’d play o’er the hill by the old water mill
And we’d rest ‘neath the moss covered vine.
T’would be rapture complete if I once more could meet
with that mother and dad of mine.

St. Anthony’s Etude

 

Lyrics: Reach The World

What I Have

You may own a lovely mansion, you might drive a fancy car
Be a Hollywood attraction and a famous movie star
You may know the Queen of England; hang around with the elite
You might own a five-star hotel or a horse that can’t be beat.
But I know there’ll come a day when you’ll trade it all away for what I have.
For what I have.

All the gold in California, all the coffee in Brazil
All the stocks and bonds on Wall street, all the hundred dollar bills
They may occupy the daydreams of a more ambitious man
But my eyes are fixed on Heaven and I’m sticking to my plan
I’ll tell the whole world even though they may not understand or know
just what I have, what I have.

Chorus
What I have is a soul bought by the blood and sanctified
What I have is a little pool of tears where I’ve cried
And I won’t forget the day I traded all my sins away
For what I have. For what I have.

If you’re searching for the answers and you can’t find your relief
If you’re craving satisfaction but all you find is grief
Would you listen to a brother that’s already been around?
Put your faith in this old world and this old world will let you down.
Jesus Christ can save your soul and I’m here to let you know
That’s what I have. That’s what I have.

Repeat chorus

Go tell the family (that’s what I have)
Tell your physician (that’s what I have)
Go tell the lawyer  (that’s what I have)
And the politician (that’s what I have)
That’s what I have.  (that’s what I have)
That’s what I have. (that’s what I have)
That’s what I have. (that’s what I have)
That’s what I have. (that’s what I have)
That’s what I have. (that’s what I have)
That’s what I have. (that’s what I have)

Well the world didn’t give it.
And the world can’t take away.
What I have. What I have.

But Then I Saw Him On The Cross

At first just a Baby in a manger
Then a Child that roamed the streets of Galilee.
Just a Boy working in His father’s carpenter shop.
So long ago and far away from me.

History records His deeds of greatness.
And they tell of His compassion in His time.
But here and now I’ve searched for answers to my problems
Though I found no thought that gave me peace of mind.

Chorus
But then I saw Him on the cross at Calvary
I saw the crown of thorns, I saw the nails in His hands and feet.
Redemptions cost for me displayed
How could my heart have not been swayed?
A sinner lost, but then I saw Him on the cross.

Upon my knees I pleaded at an altar.
Lord invite me where redemption does abide.
I cried to God, but seemed to hear no answer
So sure His well of mercy had run dry.

Repeat chorus

A sinner lost but then I saw Him on the cross.

I Can See Forever From Here

I see the beauty that surrounds me like the clover in the meadow
And the weeping willow swaying in the breeze.
I see the Earth that God created and I’m thankful for the privilege
Just to live this simple life He gave to me.

And though I know that I’m not worthy to befriend the souls creator
Still I know He wants to fellowship with me.
Lord help me not to waste complaining all the days I have remaining.
But place me on the path where I should be.

Chorus
And I can see forever from here.
High upon the mountain, Heaven feels so near.
And though the valley makes me stronger,
Can I stay a little longer
where the sun is always shining and the sky is always clear?
Lord, I can see forever from here.
I can see forever from here.

I feel the warmth of the sunshine like a morning in the springtime.
When the flowers bloom I hear a happy song.
In the trees the birds are singing, I can hear the church bells ringing
All the trials of yesterday today are gone.

And in that valley far behind me, there are lessons that remind me
Through the darkest days my Lord is with me still.
And now the grass could not be greener nor the victory any sweeter
When I finally reach the top of the hill.

Repeat Chorus

I can see forever from here.
I can see forever from here.
I can see forever from here.

I Have Faith

Chorus
I need faith
A childlike faith
That moves the mountain
I need faith

Faith will bring you comfort through long and hurting nights.
Faith makes Christian’s stronger for battles we must fight.

Repeat Chorus

Faith finds peace in worry, a song in deep despair.
Faith brings a smile to troubles faces and joy that only God can share.

Repeat Chorus

Faith brings greater victory, greater love through matchless grace.
Heaven waits and the angels are applauding the man who lives his life by faith.

I have faith
A living faith
That moves the mountain
I have faith

I have faith
A living faith
That moves the mountain
I have faith

That moves the mountain
I have faith. I have faith. I have faith

Repeat Chorus

God Still Moves

Lord how many prayers have you answered?
There must have been a million today.
I stand in awe when I think of all the mountains you have moved out of my way.
God still moves, still moves, still moves, still moves.
It’s how I know that God still moves today.

Chorus
God’s still moving through the mountains, through the busy city streets.
With mercy for each generation, the heart of God has never missed a beat.
God still moves, still moves, still moves, still moves.

Well you’ve heard the prayer of old Jonah. And of Daniel in the lion’s den.
Anything I do or valley I go through, Lord, you’ve already been.
God still moves, still moves, still moves, still moves.
It won’t be long till I’ll need you again.

Repeat Chorus

There are those who say that I’m old-fashioned.
They don’t believe God hears when I pray.
I believe the blood that flowed at Calvary
Is still the blood that saves my soul today.

Repeat Chorus

God still moves, still moves, still moves, still moves.
God still moves, still moves, still moves, still moves.
God still moves, still moves, still moves, still moves.
God still moves.

Reach The World

It all starts with just one voice
That takes a stand, that makes a choice
To live for God and not hesitate
To tell the world about amazing grace

One day that seed somehow breaks through
Where there was one, there now stands two
And soon another takes his hand
A ray of hope that spreads across the land.

Across the mountains. Across the sea.
Soon other’s join in harmony.
They’ve found the cross still standing strong.
And soon a mighty chorus sings along.

Chorus
Go reach the world, touch one more soul
Bring one more lamb back to the fold.
Each soul another flag unfurled.
Each voice another chance to reach the world.

Don’t let me pray, Lord, for wealth or fame.
A spark that sets the world aflame.
But help me reach the lost and alone
Tel tell of joy and hope where hope was gone.

Repeat Chorus

He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands

Under the starry skies, across the barren land
You know, you know, He’s got the whole wide world in His hands, oh yes.
He’s got the world in the palm of His hands.
Hallelu, hallelu, hallelu

He’s got you and me brother, in His hands.
He’s got you and me brother, in His hands.
He’s got you and me brother, in His hands.
He’s go the whole world in His hands, oh yes.
He’s got the whole world in His hands.

He’s got you and me sister, in his hands.
He’s got you and me sister, in His hands.
He’s got you and me sister, in His hands.
He’s got the whole world in His hands, oh yes.
He’s got the whole world in His hands.

He’s got the little bitty baby (shhh) in His hands.
He’s got the little bitty baby (shhh) in His hands.
He’s got the little bitty baby (shhh) in His hands.
He’s got the whole world in His hands, on yes.
He’s got the whole world in His hands.
He’s got the whole world in His hands, I believe.
He’s got the whole world in His hands.
Hallelu, Hallelu, He’s got the world in His hands.

Something New Under The Son

People are searching the world for something they can believe.
But the things that they’re trying are buying them nothing but grief.
But when they call on His name and Jesus changes their song.
All the love they can find is the kind that they’ve searched for so long.

Chorus
And now there’s something new under the Son. Another lost soul has been won.
Oh what new joy they find. Oh what a peace of mind. Eternal life has begun,
A soul that was sin-sick and tossed has come to the foot of the cross.
And much to the world’s disdain, mercy fall’s down like rain. One single drop and it’s done.
There’s something new under the Son.

From where the desert winds blow to where the ocean is blue.
Everybody has seen everything it seems there’s nothing new.
But take a heart that’s grown cold and take a soul black as night.
Ain’t it funny how they seem to change where they’re brought to the light?

Repeat Chorus

A Satisfied Mind

How many times have you heard someone say
“If I had his money, I could do things my way?”
But little they know that it’s so hard to find
One rich man in ten with a satisfied mind.

Once I was living with fortune and fame
Everything that I longed for to get ahead in life’s game
Then suddenly it happened, I lost every dime
But I’m richer by far with a satisfied mind

Money can’t buy back your youth when you’re old
Or a friend when you’re lonely, or a love that’s grown cold

When life is ended, my time has run out
My friends and my loved ones, I’ll leave them no doubt
For there’s one thing for certain, when it comes my time
I’ll leave this old world with a satisfied mind
I’ll leave this old world with a satisfied mind

With Jesus In My Life

I’ve tried to smile when deep inside my heart was aching.
With the emptiness of dreams left unfulfilled.
I had resigned myself to little expectations.
Till I traded my despair for something real.

Chorus:
But now with Jesus in my life, things are different.
For He filled this hopeless heart with hope anew.
And now no matter where the path I walk may take me.
I know with Jesus in my life, I’ll make it through.

I know that time has changed the way the world no sees things.
And how they’ve blurred the lines between the right and wrong.
But every day that we get closer to His coming,
It makes me glad that I don’t’ walk alone.

Repeat Chorus

Yes with Jesus in my life, I’ll make it through.
Make it through.

Lyrics: Kentucky Bluegrass

I’ve A Mansion Over In Glory

I am just a wandering pilgrim.
Traveling through this world below
Going to a better country
Where no chilly wind doth blow.

Chorus

I’ve a mansion over in glory (in the land of glory)
And my name is on the door (upon the door in Heaven)
And some day I’ll move into it.
Then be happy ever more.

There are many lovely mansions
In my Father’s house I’m told.
And the streets in that fair city
All a paved with purest gold.

Repeat Chorus

This old house of clay must perish.
Unto dust will be returned.
But in Heaven I’ll live forever
If a mansion I have earned.

Repeat Chorus 2x

The Old Tear Stained Altar

I remember mom and dad, how they always used to go
with the friends and the loved ones, that I used to know.
They would gather round the altar on an early Sabbath day
And lift their voices up in prayer till Jesus had His way.

Chorus
On the old tear stained altar where friends knelt to pray.
That old tear stained altar where sins were washed away.
In that old country church where I was but a lad.
That’s where I learned the good way from the bad.

It was just a little country church. The congregation there was few.
They were old-fashioned people but their hearts were good and true.
They didn’t have the style, like churches of today.
But Heaven really smiled on them when they knelt down to pray.

Repeat Chorus

In that old country church where I was but a lad
That’s where I learned the good way from the bad.
Old tear stained altar

Come Unto Me

Hear the blessed Savior calling the oppressed.
Come ye heavy laden, come to me and rest.
Come no longer tarry, I your load will bear.
Bring me every burden, bring me every care.

Chorus
Come (unto me) unto (come unto me)
And I (will give you rest. I) will give you rest
Take (my yoke upon you. Take) my yoke upon you.
Hear (me and be blessed. Hear) me and be blessed
I (am meek and lowly. I) am meek and lowly
Come (and trust my might. Come) and trust my might.
Come (oh come) my yoke is (come my yoke is) easy.
And my burdens (and my burdens) light.

Are you disappointed, wandering here and there?
Dragging chains of doubt and loaded down with care?
Do unholy feelings struggle in your breast?
Bring your case to Jesus, He will give you rest.

Have you by temptation often conquered been?
Has a sense of weakness brought distress within?
Christ will sanctify you if you claim His best.
In the Holy Spirit, He will give you rest.

Repeat Chorus 2x

I Talk To Him In Prayer

Within this life of pain and grief
When hope is gone, I can not sleep
I find myself alone with Him in prayer.
He listens as to Him I cry
He understands my ever sigh.
When I talk, talk to Him in prayer.

Chorus
Comfort and assurance, I find alone with Him.
Hope for the pathway when it grows so dim.
It’s all because He hears my prayer
And all because He’s waiting there
To talk to me when I kneel in prayer.

Repeat Chorus

To talk to me when I kneel in prayer.

Saw A Lot Of Happy People

Just the other night I had a wonderful dream
About a place of joy divine.
Oh I saw a lot of mansions and a river of life
Eternal day, and no more night.

Chorus
Saw a lot of happy people up there.
Saw a lot of happy people up there.
Heard ’em sing it, heard ’em shout it.
Oh there ain’t no doubt about it.
Saw a lot of happy people up there.

When I woke I couldn’t wait to tell what I saw.
I know it’s real by what I feel.
Someday I’ll return again when my Savior calls
Now I can say I know the way.

Repeat Chorus 2x

Oh and I want to be in that number.
Saw a lot of happy people up there.

Was He Quiet Or Did He Cry?

I’ve wondered, yes I’ve wondered.
Many times I’ve thought at night
About our Savior as a baby.
Did He cry or was He quiet?
Did His precious mother Mary
Sing to Him a lullaby.
As He lay there in the manger
Was He quiet or did He cry?

Chorus
I know the angels sang glory to the newborn King.
Bring forth the Royal Diadem. A King is born in Bethlehem.
But I’ve wondered, yes I’ve wondered.
Many times as years go by.
As He lay there in the manger.
Was He quiet or did he cry?

Repeat Chorus

As He lay there in the manger.
Was He quiet or did He cry?

Brother Moses Smote The Water

Oooooooo

Brother Moses smote the water and the children all passed over.
Brother Moses smote the water and the seas give away.
Cause Brother Moses (smote the water and the children all passed over)
Brother Moses smote the water and the seas give away.

Chorus
Now brother ain’t you glad you’ve passed that sinful army.
Sister ain’t you glad that the sea’s give away.
Cause Brother Moses (smote the water and the children all passed over)
Brother Moses smote the water and the seas give away.

Well now God called Moses on the mountain top.
(Brother Moses smote the water and the seas give away
And He stamped His laws into Moses Heart
(Brother Moses smote the water and the seas give away)

Repeat Chorus

Well if you get to heaven before I do
(Brother Moses smote the water and the seas give away
Well then look for me cause I’m coming too.
(Brother Moses smote the water and the seas give away

Repeat Chorus

Cause Brother Moses (smote the water and the children all passed over)
Brother Moses smote the water and the seas give away.

That’s The Reason

I’ve a mother over yonder
Waiting on that golden shore
She is looking for my coming
Where sad heartaches come no more.
I’ve a father there beside her
He is waiting to I know
That’s the reason I’m gettin’ ready.
That is why I want to go

Chorus
That’s the reason I’m gettin ready
That is why I want to go
To that city bright eternal
Parting never more to know
What a wondrous, sweet reunion
Where the living waters flow
That’s the reason I’m gettin’ ready.
That is why I want to go.

I have brothers, I have sisters.
Who have long gone before
They are waiting in a mansion
For my coming to that shore.
I have neighbors friends and loved ones
Who will welcome me I know
That’s the reason I’m gettin’ ready.
That is why I want to go.

Soon I’ll leave this world of sorrow
All my heartaches will be o’er.
I shall see my blessed Savior
And His holy name adore.
I’ll inherit my new mansion
Everlasting peace to know
That’s the reason I’m gettin’ ready.
That is why I want to go.

Repeat Chorus 2x

That’s the reason I’m gettin’ ready
That is why I want to go.

Rank Strangers To Me

I wandered again to my home in the mountains
Where in youth’s early dawn I was happy and free
I looked for my friends, but I never could find them
I found they were all rank strangers to me

Chorus
Everybody I met (everybody I met)
Seemed to be a rank stranger (seemed to be a rank stranger)
No mother nor dad (no mother or dad)
Not a friend could I see (not a friend could I see)
They knew not my name (they knew not my name)
And I knew not their faces (and I knew not their faces)
I found they were all (I found they were all)
Rank strangers to me (rank strangers to me)

“They’ve all moved away,” said the voice of a stranger
“To a beautiful home by the bright crystal sea”
Some beautiful day I’ll meet them in heaven
Where no one will be a stranger to me

Repeat Chorus

Howard Gray

Most every one I knew put the whole Gray family down
They were the poorest family in that little country town
Howard always looked too big for his funny ragged clothes
The kids all laughed at him and someone always turned up their nose

Howard sat across from me in seventh grade at school
I didn’t like it much but mama taught the golden rule
So when the spitballs flew at him I never would join in
I guess that was the reason Howard thought I was his friend
And after things would quiet down sometimes I’d turn and see
The grateful eyes of Howard Gray lookin’ back at me

Howard Gray, oh Howard Gray, somehow they got their kicks
Out of treatin’ you that way
Deep down I kind of liked you but I was too afraid
To be a friend to you, Howard Gray

One day after lunch, I went to comb my hair and saw
They had Howard pinned against a locker in the hall
They were pokin’ fun at him about the big hole in his shirt
They had his left arm twisted back until I was sure it hurt
Now to this day I can’t explain and I won’t try to guess
Just how it was that I wound up laughing harder than all the rest
I laughed until I cried but through my tears I still could see
The tear-stained eyes of Howard Gray, looking back at me

Howard Gray, oh Howard Gray, I can’t believe I joined them all
in treatin’ you that way
I wanted to apologize but I was too afraid
Of what they’d think of me, Howard Gray

And now from that day on after I made fun of him
He never looked my way, he never smiled at me again
Not much longer after that his family moved away
And that’s the last I ever saw or heard of Howard Gray
That was forty years ago and I still haven’t found
Just why we’ll kick a brother or a sister when they’re down
I know it may sound crazy but now and then I dream
About the eyes of Howard Gray lookin’ back at me

Howard Gray, oh Howard Gray, I’ve never quite forgiven us
For treatin’ you that way
I hope that maybe somehow you’ll hear this song someday
And know that I am sorry, Howard Gray

We’ll probably never meet again, all I can do is pray
May you and God forgive me, Howard Gray

With The Spirit Of The Lord Inside

Once I walked alone in desperation knowing not my way back home.
And my heart could find no consolation in the troubled path I’d roamed.
Then I found myself an old time altar where I knelt to pray one night.
When I felt the tears come rolling down my face, that’s when I felt the Lord inside.

Chorus
With the spirit of the Lord inside, there’s a greater love in me.
When I asked Him to come in my life, what a difference I could see.
And I know that it’s a real salvation for no other it could be.
With the spirit of the Lord inside, there’s a greater love in me.

Since that day my life has changed completely.
There’s a gladness in my heart
I’m a member of God’s loving family with a message to impart.
If you’re searching for your souls contentment
There’s one thing that you can do
I just know you’ll find true joy and happiness with the spirit of the Lord in you.

Repeat Chorus 2x

With the spirit of the Lord inside, there’s a greater love in me.

Oh What A Glad Day

Sometimes I get weary of life’s fleeting days
Where Heaven I long to behold
And through His great mercy and marvelous grace
I’ll reach the blessed city of gold.

Oh what a glad day
will come in the sweet by and by.
When all of God’s saint
Shall meet in that home in the sky.
Forever to stay
We’ll be with our loved ones for aye
Oh what a glad day
A glad and eternal bright day.

When life here is ended and toiling is done
All heartaches will then pass away
When victory o’er death and the grave have been one
Twill be a most wonderful day.

Repeat Chorus

I’ll meet with the saints on that heavenly shore
Where we shall be happy fore aye
Up there in that land we will part never more
When comes that eternal glad day

Repeat Chorus

There’s One

If you’re feeling blue and have no one to tell your troubles to.
There’s one, believe me, there’s one.
If you need a friend, a friend in deed who’ll always understand.
There’s one, believe me, there’s one.

Chorus
Yes there is one who understands when troubles are around.
He’ll take your hand and lift you up when you are falling down.
If you’re feeling blue and have no one to tell your troubles to.
There’s one, believe me, there’s one.

Repeat Chorus

There’s one, believe me, there’s one.

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.

Lyrics: All Their Best

You Can’t Ask Too Much of My God

Possum Run Music / BMI / Centergy Music / BMI

When David gathered a handful of stones,
And where the soldiers had fallen, he waited alone.
With a prayer and a little rock, the giant fell right on the spot.
That’s what David prayed for, that’s what David got.
You can’t ask too much of my God.
You can’t ask too much of my God.

There was a woman drawing water from a well.
So many regrets, so often she’d failed.
Jesus knew where she had been; still He forgave her of her sin.
In her life began to flow, living water for the soul.
You can’t ask too much of my God.
You can’t ask too much of my God.

Chorus
When you’re broken
And you cannot find the peace of mind that seems to leave you behind
Have you spoken to the God of Abraham, the Great I Am?
He’s greater than any problem you’ve got.
And you can’t ask too much of my God.
No you can’t ask too much of my God.

Upon the three Hebrew children God smiled.
And when Sarah was ninety, God gave her a child.
Now I believe that just as then, He’s here to move like that again.
He has a miracle to do; He only needs to hear from you.
And you can’t ask too much of my God.
No you can’t ask too much of my God.

Repeat Chorus

I’ll Live Again

Jesus stood at the tomb of Lazarus, he commanded him to come forth.
The people, they stood in awe as Lazarus walked out of the door.
Mary and Martha cried at once.
He was dead but now he’s alive
Jesus said I’m the Resurrection. Lazarus lives again.

Chorus
I’ll live again. I’ll live again.
No matter how deep the grave, no matter how wide.
As soon as I hear that trumpet sound,
This body of mine will come out of the ground.
In the twinkling of an eye,
I’ll live again.

Ezekiel prophesied and the bones they came together.
Again he prophesied and the flesh came up on them.
Ezekiel prophesied unto the four winds.
Well they stood on their feet and they started to breath,
Those bones they lived again.

Some resurrection morning, if I’m buried deep.
If in death I’ve closed my eyes and I’ve been laid to sleep.
Well don’t worry about me brother.
A promise has been made.
As soon as I hear that trumpet sound, I’ll come up out of that grave.

Repeat Chorus 2x

In the twinkling of an eye
I’ll live again.

He’s In The Midst

Chorus
He’s in the midst of our storm
He’s in the valley we walk through
Where two or three are gathered in his name, He’ll be there too
When you feel so all alone
He is standing next to you.
He’s with us now, our Lord, He’s in the midst.

As you travel down life’s road, He is with you every day.
With every step you take, He’s walked ahead of you.
And every night as you lay down, angels are camping all around.
I’ll never be alone, for He is in the midst.

Repeat Chorus

Into the prison they were thrown
Paul and Silas weren’t alone.
They knew their God was there and He would see them through.
So when the walls began to shake
And all their chains just fell away
They cried Behold our God, for He is in the midst.

Repeat Chorus

He’s with us now. He’s in the midst.

What I Have

You may own a lovely mansion, you might drive a fancy car
Be a Hollywood attraction and a famous movie star
You may know the Queen of England; hang around with the elite
You might own a five-star hotel or a horse that can’t be beat.
But I know there’ll come a day when you’ll trade it all away for what I have.
For what I have.

All the gold in California, all the coffee in Brazil
All the stocks and bonds on Wall street, all the hundred dollar bills
They may occupy the daydreams of a more ambitious man
But my eyes are fixed on Heaven and I’m sticking to my plan
I’ll tell the whole world even though they may not understand or know
just what I have, what I have.

Chorus
What I have is a soul bought by the blood and sanctified
What I have is a little pool of tears where I’ve cried
And I won’t forget the day I traded all my sins away
For what I have. For what I have.

If you’re searching for the answers and you can’t find your relief
If you’re craving satisfaction but all you find is grief
Would you listen to a brother that’s already been around?
Put your faith in this old world and this old world will let you down.
Jesus Christ can save your soul and I’m here to let you know
That’s what I have. That’s what I have.

Repeat chorus

Go tell the family (that’s what I have)
Tell your physician (that’s what I have)
Go tell the lawyer  (that’s what I have)
And the politician (that’s what I have)
That’s what I have.  (that’s what I have)
That’s what I have. (that’s what I have)
That’s what I have. (that’s what I have)
That’s what I have. (that’s what I have)
That’s what I have. (that’s what I have)
That’s what I have. (that’s what I have)

Well the world didn’t give it.
And the world can’t take away.
What I have. What I have.

Reach The World

It all starts with just one voice
That takes a stand, that makes a choice
To live for God and not hesitate
To tell the world about amazing grace

One day that seed somehow breaks through
Where there was one, there now stands two
And soon another takes his hand
A ray of hope that spreads across the land.

Across the mountains. Across the sea.
Soon other’s join in harmony.
They’ve found the cross still standing strong.
And soon a mighty chorus sings along.

Chorus
Go reach the world, touch one more soul
Bring one more lamb back to the fold.
Each soul another flag unfurled.
Each voice another chance to reach the world.

Don’t let me pray, Lord, for wealth or fame.
A spark that sets the world aflame.
But help me reach the lost and alone
Tel tell of joy and hope where hope was gone.

Repeat Chorus

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.

A Rose Among The Thorns

While strolling through the fields of time there’s many things to see.
But nature is the greatest site that there could ever be.
The greatest of them all to me is how the world was formed.
And why the roses have to live, each day among the thorns.

Repeat Chorus

One day among a world of thorns a Rose began to grow.
It was the greatest gift of God this world will ever know.
It was the will of God to show that since the world was formed
There had to be a Rose to live and die among the thorns.

Two thousand years will soon be gone since God looked down in love.
There in the town of Bethlehem a Rose began to bud.
It lived to bloom until one day was crushed with awful frown.
And then in love from God above
Was moved to higher ground.

Repeat Chorus

There had to be a Rose to live and die among the thorns.

When Jesus Is All That I Have

I don’t worry about the rain or the storm clouds
Or the trouble Satan has for me today.
Though the very best in Hell may rise against me,
There’s a greater power standing in his way.

I don’t fret about the news or the headlines
Or a world that has the devil yet to pay.
I’ve been bought by the blood of the Savior
And I rest assured good news is on the way.

Chorus
When Jesus is all that I have, He’s all that I need. (all that I need, He is all that I need)
Abundantly more than enough to face my enemies (abundantly more than enough for my need)
Though the thunder rolls around me and the lightning flash surrounds me
Though the adversary drives me to my knees.
When Jesus is all that I have, He’s all that I need.

If you carry a burden on your shoulders
And you can’t escape the chains that have you bound.
If you hear Satan laugh through hollow promises,
Let me tell you of the victory I’ve found.

Repeat Chorus

Though the thunder rolls around me and the lightning flash surrounds me
Though the adversary drives me to my knees.
When Jesus is all that I have, He’s all that I need.

When Jesus is all that I have
When Jesus is all that I have
When Jesus is all that I have
He’s all that I need.

Blind Bartimaeus

Chorus
Well old blind Bartimaeus stood on the way, blind
Blind Bartimaeus stood on the way.
Well old blind Bartimaeus stood on the way, crying
Oh Lord, have mercy on me

In my God’s bible, the word proclaims
that Christ went healing the crippled and the lame.
He gave to the poor and the needy bread.
Healing the sick and raising the dead.
And then when He came to Galilee.
He passed by a man that could not see
Well, the main was blind, he was blind for birth.
They tell me that his name was Blind Bartimaeus.

Repeat Chorus

When Bartimaeus heard that the Lord was nigh,
He fell on his knees and began to crying
Oh thou man of Galilee
Cryin’ great God Almighty, have mercy on me.
Crying Oh Lord, (Mary’s baby)
Oh Lord, (Son of David)
Oh Lord, (Bleeding Lamb)
Oh, my Lord from in Bethlehem

Then my Lord, He stopped and He turned around
And He saw Blind Bartimaeus on the ground
And He touched his eyes with the palm of His hand
Blind Bartimaeus saw like a natural man.

He cried Thank God
Thank God
Thank God
Thank my God from in Bethlehem.

Repeat Chorus

Lazarus, Come Forth

Heartbroken, tears falling
Martha found Jesus
She questioned why Lazarus had died.
When she had thus spoken, her doubts were then silenced.
He walked toward the body and cried.

Chorus
Lazarus, come forth.
Awake like the morning.
Arise with new hope, a new life is born.
Lazarus, come forth.
From death now awaken.
For Jesus has spoken.
Death’s chains have been broken.
Lazarus, come forth.

The tomb now was empty.
Martha stopped crying.
Her brother now stood by her side.
The Pharisee’s wondered about what had happened.
How could one now live who had died?

The reason this story gives hope to so many
Is although we know we must die.
Our bodies won’t stay there
In cold and dark silence.
We’ll hear Jesus cry from on high.

Children come forth
Awake like the morning.
Arise with new hope, a new life is born.
Children come forth.
From death now awaken.
For Jesus has spoken.
Death’s chains have been broken.
Children come forth.

For Jesus has spoken.
Death’s chains have been broken.
My Children come forth.
Children come forth.
Children, come forth.

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

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

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
