ONLY JESUS

Avis B. Christiansen

I've found a refuge from life's care in Jesus
I am hiding in His love divine
He fully understands my soul's deep longing
And He whispers softly, "Thou art mine."

Only Jesus! Only Jesus!
Only He can satisfy
Every burden becomes a blessing
When I know my Lord is nigh

I've found a precious joy in knowing Jesus
Never dreamed of in this world of woe
No clouds, however dark, can dim the radiance
Of the heavenly light He doth bestow

Only Jesus! Only Jesus!
Only He can satisfy
Every burden becomes a blessing
When I know my Lord is nigh

I've found a blessed hope divine in Jesus
'Tis a Day Star ever shining bright
It fills my earthly way with heavenly glory
And it turns life's darkness into light.

Only Jesus! Only Jesus!
Only He can satisfy
Every burden becomes a blessing
When I know my Lord is nigh

NO MORE NIGHT

Mark Dibler

There'll be no more night
For God will be the light
We'll lay our armor down
And receive our crown
Then we'll cast them at the feet
Of the One who won the fight
In that Land where they'll be
No more night

We live in a land
With darkness on every hand
One day Christ will come
And take us home
We'll close our eyes
To this world of strife
And wake up in the Land
Of everlasting life

There'll be no more night
For God will be the light
We'll lay our armor down
And receive our crown
Then we'll cast them at the feet
Of the One who won the fight
In that Land where they'll be
No more night

Our bodies grow weaker
Our eyes grow dimmer
One day Christ will come
And take us home
But, while we're here
We need to be a light
'Til He takes us Home
To that land of no more night

There'll be no more night
For God will be the light
We'll lay our armor down
And receive our crown
Then we'll cast them at the feet
Of the One who's won the fight
In that Land where they'll be
No more night

FAVORITE SONG OF ALL

Dan Dean

He loves to hear the wind sing
As it echoes through the pines on mountain peaks.
He loves to hear the raindrops
As they splash to the ground in a magic melody.
He smiles in sweet approval
As the waves crash to the rocks in harmony.
Creation joins in unity to sing to Him majestic symphonies.

But His favorite song of all is the song of the redeemed,
When lost sinners now made clean lift their voices loud and strong!
When those purchased by His blood lift to Him a song of love,
There's nothing more He'd rather hear, nor so pleasing to His ear,
As His favorite song of all.

He loves to hear the angels as they sing, "Holy, holy is the Lamb,"
Heaven's choirs in harmony lift up praises to the great I AM.
But He lifts His hands for silence when the weakest saved by grace begins to sing,
And a million angels listen as a newborn soul sings, "I've been redeemed!"

His favorite song of all is the song of the redeemed,
When lost sinners now made clean lift their voices loud and strong!
When those purchased by His blood lift to Him a song of love,
There's nothing more He'd rather hear, nor so pleasing to His ear,
As His favorite song of all.

It's not just melodies and harmonies that catches his attention,
It's not just clever lines and phrases that causes Him to stop and listen.
But when any heart set free, washed and bought by Calvary begins to sing...

That's His favorite song of all, it's the song of the redeemed,
When lost sinners now made clean lift their voices loud and strong!
When those purchased by His blood lift to Him a song of love,
There's nothing more He'd rather hear, nor so pleasing to His ear,
As His favorite song of all.

GOD STILL ANSWERS PRAYER

Scott Thomas

THE LORD IS NOT TOO BUSY
THAT HE CAN’T REACH DOWN
AND MEND A BROKEN HEART
AND MY BURDEN IS NOT TOO HEAVY
THAT HE CAN’T HEAR A PLEA OF FAITH
GOD STILL ANSWERS PRAYER

GOD STILL ANSWERS PRAYER
IN HIS TIME HE’LL WORK A MIRACLE
HE WILL NEVER FAIL.
SATAN HAS LOST THE BATTLE
WHEN TO THE LORD YOU HUMBLY BOW
GOD STILL ANSWERS PRAYER!

IF YOU FEEL THAT LIFE IS HOPELESS
AND THE NIGHT HAS NO END
THERE’S HOPE FOR YOUR HURTING HEART
FOR HE’LL BE THERE WITH YOU
NO MATTER WHAT YOU’RE GOING THROUGH
GOD STILL ANSWERS PRAYER!

GOD STILL ANSWERS PRAYER
IN HIS TIME HE’LL WORK A MIRACLE
HE WILL NEVER FAIL.
SATAN HAS LOST THE BATTLE
WHEN TO THE LORD YOU HUMBLY BOW
GOD STILL ANSWERS PRAYER!

I WANT TO BE JUST LIKE YOU

Joey Becker & Dan Dean

He climbs in my lap for a goodnight hug
He calls me Dad and I call him Bub
With his faded old pillow and a bear named Pooh
He snuggles up close and says, "I want to be like you"
I tuck him in bed and I kiss him goodnight
Trippin' over the toys as I turn out the light
And I whisper a prayer that someday he'll see
He's got a father in God 'cause he's seen Jesus in me

Lord, I want to be just like You
'Cause he wants to be just like me
I want to be a holy example
For his innocent eyes to see
Help me be a living Bible, Lord
That my little boy can read
I want to be just like You
'Cause he wants to be like me

Got to admit I've got so far to go
Make so many mistakes and I'm sure that You know
Sometimes it seems no matter how hard I try
With all the pressures in life I just can't get it all right
But I'm trying so hard to learn from the best
Being patient and kind, filled with Your tenderness
'Cause I know that he'll learn from the things that he sees
And the Jesus he finds will be the Jesus in me

Right now from where he stands I may seem mighty tall
But it's only 'cause I'm learning from the best Father of them all

Lord, I want to be just like You
'Cause he wants to be just like me
I want to be a holy example
For his innocent eyes to see
Help me be a living Bible, Lord
That my little boy can read
Lord, I want to be just like You
'Cause he wants to be like me

I WOULDN'T TAKE NOTHING FOR MY JOURNEY NOW

Charles Goodman & Jimmie Davis

I started out traveling for the Lord many years ago,
I've had a lot of heartaches, had a lot of troubles and woes.
Oh, when I would stumble, then I would humble down.
I'd say, "Thank the Lord, I wouldn't take nothing for my journey now."

I wouldn't take nothing for my journey now,
I've got to make it to Heaven somehow.
Though the devil tempts and tries to turn me around.
He's offered everything that's got a name
All the wealth I want and worldly fame,
But if I could, still I wouldn't take nothing for my journey now.

There's nothing in this world that can ever take the place of God's love,
Silver and gold could never buy His love from above.
When my soul needs healing and I begin feeling His power,
I can say, "Thank the Lord, I wouldn't take nothing for my journey now.

I wouldn't take nothing for my journey now,
I've got to make it to Heaven somehow.
Though the devil tempts and tries to turn me around.
He's offered everything that's got a name
All the wealth I want and worldly fame,
But if I could, still I wouldn't take nothing for my journey now.

WHILE THE AGES ROLL

Mosie Lister

Someday the stammering tongue will falter no more
And a grander, sweeter song I shall sing;
Then I’ll join the ransomed choir on heaven’s bright shore,
Forever to praise the King.

And while the ages roll
I’ll keep on praising Him,
And my voice shall never tire or grow old;
And my song shall ever be,
“Praise the Lamb who died for me,”
And I’ll sing it while ages shall roll.

When a million years have passed in that wonderful place,
My song of praise will just have begun;
And my song shall never end while I look on His face,
And my song will never be done.

And while the ages roll
I’ll keep on praising Him,
And my voice shall never tire or grow old;
And my song shall ever be,
“Praise the Lamb who died for me,”
And I’ll sing it while ages shall roll.

IF YOU WANT ME TO

Ginny Owens

The pathway is broken
And the signs are unclear
And I don’t know the reasons why You brought me here
But just because You love me the way that You do
I’m gonna walk through the valley
If You want me to

'Cause I’m not who I was
When I took my first step
And I’m clinging to the promise
You’re not through with me yet
So if all of these trials
Bring me closer to You
Then I will go through the fire
If You want me to

It may not be the way I would have chosen
When You lead me through a world that’s not my home
But You never said it would be easy
You only said I’d never go alone
So when the whole world turns against me
And I’m all by myself
And I can’t hear You answer my cries for help
I’ll remember the suffering Your love put You through
And I will go through the valley
If You want me to

So when I cross over Jordan
Gonna sing, gonna shout
I’m gonna look into Your eyes
And see You’ve never let me down
So take me to the pathway
That leads me home to You
And I’ll go through the valley
If You want me to.

I LOVE TO TELL OF HIS LOVE

Lonnie B. Combs

As I journey on this pilgrim way
There is happiness and joy each day
And I love to tell of my Savior's love
Soon I'll reach that home prepared for me
I'll be singing through eternity
And I love to tell of my Savior's love

I love to tell the world about His love
For He has been so good to me
He's leading me to that sweet home above
Where angels sing sweet melody
I love to sing of His redeeming grace
I want to look upon His face
My heart will overflow with gladness
In that happy home above
And I love to tell of my Savior's love

Now His loving arms are holding me
And soon His face I'll see
And I love to tell of my Savior's love
O, I have that feeling in my soul
Ever keeping me free and whole
And I love to tell of my Savior's love

I love to tell the world about His love
For He has been so good to me
He's leading me to that sweet home above
Where angels sing sweet melody
I love to sing of His redeeming grace
I want to look upon His face
My heart will overflow with gladness
In that happy home above
And I love to tell of my Savior's love

STEPS

Larry Gatlin

Steps beginning in a manger down in Bethlehem
Winding their way into a hopeless sinner's soul
Steps imprinted in the sandy shores of Galilee
Tell a story of love that never will grow old

For theses weren't the steps of an ordinary man
He had all the power of Heaven and earth at His command
And He could have chosen the bitter cup to pass
And if He had I fear, my brother, we'd all be lost at last

Steps beginning in the lonely hills of Judah
All the way up to the hill of sin and shame
Steps that beckon to the world to come and follow after
And because of those steps the world will never be the same

Because of the steps of Jesus

I HAVE A FATHER WHO CAN

Author Unknown

I cannot make a world and hold it in my hands
I cannot make the lightning flash across the land
I cannot take a piece of clay and mold it into man
But I have a Father, I have a Father who can.

Now he sits high and looks low
And He guides my feet wherever I go.
When I don't understand I have a Father,
I have a Father who can

I can't make a cloud and ascend it in the sky
I can't love humanity so much that I would die
I can't even name the stars or count the many grains of sand
But I have a Father, a heavenly Father who can

Now he sits high and looks low
And He guides my feet wherever I go.
When I don't understand I have a Father,
I have a Father who can

CITY LIGHTS

Robby McGee

Lately there's a feeling
Spreading through the air
Times are constantly changing
Fear is everywhere
But there's coming a reunion
Where fear will not be found
In that city of perfect light
Where Jesus' love abounds

When we see the city lights
We'll know we're home then
And with our Lord
We'll reign eternally
And all the problems that you have known
They will all be gone
When we see the city lights
We'll know we're home

The plans are in the making
Though we know not the day
When Jesus will come in all His glory
And take His bride away
Will He find you ready
To make that final flight?
The departure date is nearing
To that city of no more night

When we see the city lights
We'll know we're home then
And with our Lord
We'll reign eternally
And all the problems that you have known
They will all be gone
When we see the city lights
We'll know we're home

WHAT CHILDREN BELIEVE

Brent Lamb, Jerry Salley and James Isaac Elliot

Saturday Morning at a treehouse meeting
In our backyard
Over Kool-Aid and crackers
You could hear through the laughter
Just how smart they are
With crayons they wrote down the things they believed
Oh, the wisdom in first grade philosophy

Love lasts forever
Mom and daddies stay together
Cheaters never win
And a promise is something you keep
Its bad to lie, it's okay to cry
Dreams never die
Faith is all you need
Ain't it crazy what children believe

Sometimes I wish I didn't know now
What i didn't know then
When my world was so small
Back before all of this trouble we're in
When right and wrong mattered
And truth was in style
And hope could be seen
Through the eyes of a child

Love lasts forever
Mom and daddies stay together
Cheaters never win
And a promise is something you keep
Its bad to lie, it's okay to cry
Dreams never die
Faith is all you need
Ain't it crazy what children believe

A world without hate
Where people still care
What a wonderful place this would be
If we lived where. . .

Love lasts forever
Mom and daddies stay together
Cheaters never win
And a promise is something you keep
Its bad to lie, it's okay to cry
Dreams never die
Faith is all you need
Ain't it crazy what children believe
