MORE THAN I EVER ASKED FOR

Squire E. Parsons, Jr.

Satan said, "This time you've done it
Now you have gone too far.
How could the Lord receive you now?
You are ruined now and scarred."
But something deep inside of me
Said, "Child, you're still My own.
My love for you is still the same
So, child, just come back home."

He gave me more than I ever asked for
More than I ever dreamed
More than I could imagine
When I came back home to Him
When I asked Him to forgive me
He gave me a robe and a ring
I said, "Make me as one of Your servants."
But He made me a child of the King.

I thought about the years I'd wasted
As I walked the homeward way
And I rehearsed time and time
All the words that I would say
But when I finally climbed the last long hill
My Father I did see
Running with His arms open wide
In love to welcome me.

He gave me more than I ever asked for
More than I ever dreamed
More than I could imagine
When I came back home to Him
When I asked Him to forgive me
He gave me a robe and a ring
I said, "Make me as one of Your servants."
But He made me a child of the King.

I'VE BEEN REDEEMED

Author Unknown

I've been redeemed
I've been forgiven
I've been washed in the blood of the Lamb
Crucified with the Great I Am
And now I'm free
There's a new way of livin'
Jesus blood has covered me
I've been redeemed

I've been introduced
To some great men of government
I've have shaken the hands of stars
That everyone has seen
I've been thrilled to know
A family that cares for me
But the greatest thrill I've ever known
Is I have been redeemed

I've been redeemed
I've been forgiven
I've been washed in the blood of the Lamb
Crucified with the Great I Am
And now I'm free
There's a new way of livin'
Jesus blood has covered me
I've been redeemed

You may wonder why
I don't hang my head and cry
When things are going wrong
I still can smile and sing
It's because I know
I'm washed whiter than the snow
And what the devil throws at me
I throw it back and say,

I've been redeemed
I've been forgiven
I've been washed in the blood of the Lamb
Crucified with the Great I Am
And now I'm free
There's a new way of livin'
Jesus blood has covered me
I've been redeemed

DON'T TRY TO TELL ME

Author Unknown

Now don’t try to tell me that God is dead
I just talked to Him this morning
Don’t try to tell me He’s not alive,
He lives within my heart
His Word is always by my side
And He brightens up the way
So don’t try to tell me that God is dead
I just talked to Him today

Now don’t try to tell me that God is dead,
His mighty army’s leading
I have no fear when He is near,
He takes good care of me
His rod and staff they comfort me,
I feast upon His love
His goodness and mercy shall follow me
Till I reach that home above

Now don’t try to tell me that God is dead
I just talked to Him this morning
Don’t try to tell me He’s not alive,
He lives within my heart
His Word is always by my side
And He brightens up the way
So don’t try to tell me that God is dead
I just talked to Him today

Now some folks claim that God is dead
And that’s what the Devil wanted
Satan’s been lying and deceiving man
Ever since time began
Well, God can’t live in a wicked mind
Or a life’s that filled with sin
The thing to do is put the devil out,
Get the love of God within

Now don’t try to tell me that God is dead
I just talked to Him this morning
Don’t try to tell me He’s not alive,
He lives within my heart
His Word is always by my side
And He brightens up the way
So don’t try to tell me that God is dead
I just talked to Him today

IN MY FATHER'S EYES

Gary Duty

From a distance He'd be watching me,
And I guess somehow He knew,
That in my heart I longed to be like Him.
In time the closer we became,
The more it seemed I grew:
I'd fall, He'd pick me up, and I'd try again.

He loves me even when I do
The things I shouldn't do,
And when I fail to do the things I should.
I've heard it said that love is blind,
And I've come to know it's true;
He forgets the bad, and remembers all the good.

In my Father's eyes there's no wrong I've done.
In my Father's eyes I am the perfect son.
There must be someone I can't see,
And it makes me want to try
To be like the Son that's in my Father's eyes.

And when this life is over,
My last trial I've gone through,
'Twill be worth it all to hear Him say "Well done."
And maybe then I'll understand
Just what He saw in me,
Though I'm sure I'll find that He was blinded by the Son.

In my Father's eyes there's no wrong I've done.
In my Father's eyes I am the perfect son.
There must be someone I can't see,
And it makes me want to try
To be like the Son that's in my Father's eyes.

MORE THAN YOU'LL EVER KNOW

Phil Johnson

If I could find the right words to say
To tell you just what Christ means to me
I'd say He's more than I could show
And more than you'll ever know

Christ means more to me than you'll ever know
Christ means more to me than I could possibly show
More, more, so much more
More than you'll ever know

If you could have seen me just yesterday
You'd know why He's life and breath to me
You'd know why He's more than I could show
And more than you'll ever know

Christ means more to me than you'll ever know
Christ means more to me than I could possibly show
More, more, so much more
More than you'll ever know

WE WANT AMERICA BACK

Jeff Steele

Something is wrong with America.
She once held the Bible as her conscience and guide.
But we’ve allowed those who hold nothing to be sacred,
Like Sodom of old, to push morals aside.
Where are the men who once stood for right?
And the women who championed their cause?
We must return to the values we lost,
Before this country we love is totally lost.

We want America back.
We want America back,
From those who have no self-control,
We want America back.
This nation is like a runaway train,
Headed down the wrong track,
It’s time for the army of God to arise,
And say we want America back.

Narration:
I love America. But I do not love what she has become.
Our children are asked to attend public schools
that in many cases resemble war zones,
without even the most basic right of any soldier…
the right to pray to the God of heaven.
Many times a wild-eyed, drug-addicted,
gun-carrying teenager is allowed to stay in school,
while our Supreme Court decided to expel God
from the classroom over thirty years ago.
Something is wrong.
Television daily bombards the senses of our nation
with the idea that wrong is right,
that the abnormal is normal,
that the abhorrent is acceptable,
and that what God calls an abomination is
nothing more than an alternate life-style.
And it’s had an effect. Thirty years ago,
the number one television program in America
was “The Andy Griffith Show.” Look what we have today.
Something is wrong.
When our government can pass out contraceptives
to children in school without parental consent,
and yet the Gideons can no longer pass out the Bible
on campus…something is wrong.
When our leaders can tell your children and mine
that premarital sex is alright as long as it’s safe…
yes…something is wrong. And I for one am ready for a change.
I will say to my government, “I’m not raising
dogs at my house; I’m raising children…created in the image
and likeness of almighty God.
And I’m going to teach them the Bible.
If the Bible says it’s right…it’s right.
And if the Bible says it’s wrong…it’s wrong.”
The only hope that America has is that Godly men
and women will stand together as one might army and
declare to the immoral, the impure, the obscene and the foul,
“Your days of unlimited access the minds of America are over.
The army of God, that has been silent for too long,
is taking America back!”


We want America back.
We want America back,
From those who have no self-control,
We want America back.
This nation is like a runaway train,
Headed down the wrong track,
It’s time for the army of God to arise,
And say we want America back.
It’s time for the army of God to arise,
And say we want America back!!

I CAN SEE THE HAND

Author Unknown

When I look at the moon and stars in the sky
I can see the hand of the Father.
In the valley so deep and rivers so wide,
I can see the hand of the Father.

I can see the hand..... when I look around me
I can hear the voice....blowing in the wind
I can feel the mighty touch of the Father’s love
Ev’rywhere I go, ev’rywhere I go
His presence surrounds me
I can see the hand,
I can hear the voice,
I can feel the touch of God.

In the music of birds and rustle of leaves
I can hear the voice of the Father
In the thundering rain and whispering breeze,
I can hear the voice of the Father.

I can see the hand..... when I look around me
I can hear the voice....blowing in the wind
I can feel the mighty touch of the Father’s love
Ev’rywhere I go, ev’rywhere I go
His presence surrounds me
I can see the hand,
I can hear the voice,
I can feel the touch of God.

On a warm summer day when the sun’s shining bright
I can feel the touch of the Father.
In the snow that falls on a cold winter night,
I can feel the touch of the Father.

I can see the hand..... when I look around me
I can hear the voice....blowing in the wind
I can feel the mighty touch of the Father’s love
Ev’rywhere I go, ev’rywhere I go
His presence surrounds me
I can see the hand,
I can hear the voice,
I can feel the touch of God.

OPEN MY EYES, THAT I MAY SEE

Clara H. Scott

Open my eyes, that I may see
Glimpses of truth thou hast for me;
Place in my hands the wonderful key
That shall unclasp and set me free.
Silently now I wait for thee,
Ready, my God, thy will to see.
Open my eyes, illumine me, Spirit divine!

Open my ears, that I may hear
Voices of truth thou sendest clear;
And while the wavenotes fall on my ear,
Everything false will disappear.
Silently now I wait for thee,
Ready, my God, thy will to see.
Open my ears, illumine me, Spirit divine!

Open my mouth, and let me bear
Gladly the warm truth everywhere;
Open my heart and let me prepare
Love with thy children thus to share.
Silently now I wait for thee,
Ready, my God, thy will to see.
Open my heart, illumine me, Spirit divine!

JESUS BUILT A BRIDGE

Phil Cross

ONE DAY THEY NAILED A CARPENTER TO A RUGGED TREE,
THINKING HE WOULD NEVER BUILD AGAIN.
THERE THEY HELD HIM THROUGH HIS HANDS AND FEET
STILL HE CARRIED OUT THE MASTER PLAN

JESUS BUILT A BRIDGE TO HEAVEN
SO THAT I COULD FIND A WAY UP TO HIM,
JESUS BUILT A BRIDGE THE ONLY WAY HE COULD
WITH ONLY THREE NAILS AND TWO PIECES OF WOOD
WITH ONE RUGGED CROSS JESUS BUILT A BRIDGE.

THE FATHER LOOKED FROM HEAVEN TO THE WORLD BELOW
AND SAW THERE WAS NO WAY TO CLAIM HIS OWN
SO TO THE WORLD HIS SON THE MASTER BUILDER HAD TO GO
TO MAKE A WAY TO BRING GOD'S CHILDREN HOME.

JESUS BUILT A BRIDGE TO HEAVEN
SO THAT I COULD FIND A WAY UP TO HIM,
JESUS BUILT A BRIDGE THE ONLY WAY HE COULD
WITH ONLY THREE NAILS AND TWO PIECES OF WOOD
WITH ONE RUGGED CROSS JESUS BUILT A BRIDGE.

WHEN JESUS PASSES BY

Sandra Knight

They brought the blind to Jesus' side
Touch me now I pray
So Jesus led him down out of town
And touched his eyes that day
He said I see men as trees walking
So Jesus touched him once again
And these blinded eyes received their sight
When Jesus passes by

It always makes a difference when Jesus passes by
The devil trembles, the enemy flees
When Jesus comes on the scene
He always shines a ray of light
The darkening clouds must fly
It always makes a difference when Jesus passes by

They took him to the tomb that day
Lazarus was his name
His loved ones wept for death had crept
Into their lives with pain
Oh, but someone sent a message
And soon Jesus did reply
And even death could have no power
When Jesus passes by

It always makes a difference when Jesus passes by
The devil trembles, the enemy flees
When Jesus comes on the scene
He always shines a ray of light
The darkening clouds must fly
It always makes a difference when Jesus passes by

I'M BLESSED

Tracy Jones and Ricky Atkinson

Each day that I live, He gives more than I need
And I could never describe His goodness to me
If you ask how I make day after day
There is only one thing I can say

It's been a long journey but I have been blessed
Walking with Jesus, I have no regrets
He is so good to me, and I must confess
The way has been long, but I'm blessed

All that I need I find at His feet
When I'm hungry, He feeds me with manna so sweet
When my soul is weary, He sends peace and rest
And all I can say is I'm blessed

Now I've had my share of sunshine and rain
Days filled with laughter and nights filled with pain
But with every mile as I travel this way
The journey gets sweeter each day

It's been a long journey but I have been blessed
Walking with Jesus, I have no regrets
He is so good to me, and I must confess
The way has been long, but I'm blessed

I'M BLESSED
So much more than I ever deserve
I'M BLESSED
He's been faithfully keeping His word
I'M BLESSED
I've been cleansed by the hand of the Lord
I'm blessed, I'm blessed, I'm blessed

It's been a long journey but I have been blessed
Walking with Jesus, I have no regrets
He is so good to me, and I must confess
The way has been long, but I'm blessed

FOLLOW ME

Rodney Griffin

It's easy to walk in the footprints
Of another who has walked here before.
But when those prints disappear
And my future seems unclear,
My only hope is in a still small voice.

Follow me when the footprints you've followed are gone.
Follow me when friends leave you standing alone.
Don't be afraid, I won't lead you wrong.
The Savior has spoken, follow me.

Oh, friend, are you troubled with nowhere to turn?
Have you lost your way in the night?
Well, there is One who is watching,
And He knows where you are;
He wants to lead you in to the light!

Follow me when the footprints you've followed are gone.
Follow me when friends leave you standing alone.
Don't be afraid, I won't lead you wrong.
The Savior has spoken, follow me.

TO GOD BE THE GLORY

Fanny Crosby

To God be the glory, great things He has done;
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life gate that all may go in.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory, great things He has done.

O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory, great things He has done.

Great things He has taught us, great things He has done,
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
But purer, and higher, and greater will be
Our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory, great things He has done.

GOD IS WORKING

God is working; He's still working
God is working even now
Though we often can't see just how
God is working, He's still working
God is working even now.

Though we cannot see
And we can't quite understand
Remember God is still in control
He has promised to see you through
And He's working even now

God is working; He's still working
God is working even now
Though we often can't see just how
God is working; He's still working
God is working even now.

Hallelujah, He's working even now
Hallelujah, He's working even now
Though we often don't know just how
God is working; He's still working
God is working even now.

WE WILL LIFT UP YOUR NAME

Glen Aubrey

We will lift up Your name, O Lord;
We will lift up Your name, O Lord.
All we desire to do is to give glory to You;
And we'll lift up Your name, O Lord.

We will lift up Your name, O Lord;
We will lift up Your name, O Lord.
In everything we do, we want to honor You;
And we'll lift up Your name, O Lord.

No other name we know that is worthy of praise;
No other Savior we worship but Jesus.
Lamb of God, Price of Peace, the mighty Conqueror is He;
And we'll lift up Him name forever.

We will lift up Your name, O Lord;
We will lift up Your name, O Lord.
With hearts of gratitude, we offer praise to You;
And we'll lift up Your name, O Lord.
