I WILL WORSHIP YOU

My God is faithful
My God is truthful
My God is boundless in all He is
My God is wisdom
My God is righteous
My God is vision for all who seek

So I will worship You
In the beauty of holiness
And I will worship You
For the things You’ve done in me
And when my life’s complete
I’ll place my crown at Your feet
And I will worship You on bended knee

My God is power, My God is glory
My God is ruler over all that is
My God is timeless, My God is justice
My God is mercy to the oppressed

So I will worship You
In the beauty of holiness
And I will worship You
For the things You’ve done in me
And when my life’s complete
I’ll place my crown at Your feet
And I will worship You on bended knee

His name is love, His voice is thunder
His heart is tender, His hand is strong

So I will worship You
In the beauty of holiness
And I will worship You
For the things You’ve done in me
And when my life’s complete
I’ll place my crown at Your feet
And I will worship You on bended knee

HAVE THINE OWN WAY, LORD

Adelaide Pollard

Have thine own way, Lord!
Have thine own way!
Thou art the potter,
I am the clay.
Mold me and make me
After thy will,
While I am waiting,
Yielded and still.

Have thine own way, Lord!
Have thine own way!
Search me and try me,
Master, today!
Whiter than snow, Lord,
Wash me just now,
As in thy presence
Humbly I bow.

Have thine own way, Lord!
Have thine own way!
Wounded and weary,
Help me I pray!
Power, all power,
Surely is thine!
Touch me and heal me,
Savior divine!

Have thine own way, Lord!
Have thine own way!
Hold o'er my being
Absolute sway.
Fill with thy Spirit
Till all shall see
Christ only, always,
Living in me!

Here Am I, Lord

Author Unknown

Lord, I give my life to you,
Take control each day.
I will follow anywhere
Near or far away.

Here am I, Lord, send me,
Here am I, Lord, send me!
I will serve you faithfully
Here am I, Lord, send me.

Lord, I want your perfect will
Be my faithful Guide
I will never be afraid,
You are close beside.

Here am I, Lord, send me,
Here am I, Lord, send me!
I will serve you faithfully
Here am I, Lord, send me.

Let me see my mission field,
All around each day.
Fill my heart with Jesus love,
Use me Lord, I pray!

Here am I, Lord, send me,
Here am I, Lord, send me!
I will serve you faithfully
Here am I, Lord, send me.

ARE YOU READY?

Author Unknown

The hour is approaching when the souls of man will hear
A mighty shout resounding in the sky.
In power and great glory, King Jesus will appear
And take His children home to paradise.
It will be a celebration for the ones who chose His name
But total separation for the ones who turned away.

Are you ready for the trumpet,
Are you ready for the call?
Soon the angels will assemble
To usher in the Son of God.
Will He come and find you faithful?
Will He know your name at all?
Every moment brings us closer,
Are you ready for the call?

The Bible speaks of two men who were standing in the field
Where one is taken and one is left behind.
Two women in the kitchen, one goes and one remains
So get your house in order while there's time
In the cross there is salvation,
Through the blood there is a way
To secure your destination on resurrection day.

Are you ready for the trumpet,
Are you ready for the call?
Soon the angels will assemble
To usher in the Son of God.
Will He come and find you faithful?
Will He know your name at all?
Every moment brings us closer,
Are you ready for the call?

There's an urgency to reach the world
We have no time to waste
For within the heart of mortal man
This very question is now made

Are you ready for the trumpet,
Are you ready for the call?
Soon the angels will assemble
To usher in the Son of God.
Will He come and find you faithful?
Will He know your name at all?
Every moment brings us closer,
Are you ready for the call?

UNTITLED HYMN (COME TO JESUS)

Chris Rice

Weak and wounded sinner
Lost and left to die

O, raise your head, for love is passing by

Come to Jesus

Come to Jesus

Come to Jesus and live!


Now your burden's lifted

And carried far away

And precious blood has washed away the stain, so

Sing to Jesus

Sing to Jesus

Sing to Jesus and live!


And like a newborn baby

Don't be afraid to crawl

And remember when you walk

Sometimes we fall...so

Fall on Jesus

Fall on Jesus

Fall on Jesus and live!


Sometimes the way is lonely

And steep and filled with pain

So if your sky is dark and pours the rain, then

Cry to Jesus

Cry to Jesus

Cry to Jesus and live!


O, and when the love spills over

And music fills the night

And when you can't contain your joy inside, then

Dance for Jesus

Dance for Jesus

Dance for Jesus and live!


And with your final heartbeat

Kiss the world goodbye

Then go in peace, and laugh on Glory's side, and

Fly to Jesus

Fly to Jesus

Fly to Jesus and live!

DOUBLE DOSE

McCray Dove

I want a double dose of Jesus' blessings,
I want a double dose of Jesus' power.
Let me have a taste of that holy water,
And let us pray that He comes this very hour.

Just like Elijah walking with Elisha;
A double dose is what I ask of You.
Just a double portion of Your sweet Spirit
Will be power enough to make it through.

I want a double dose of Jesus' blessings,
I want a double dose of Jesus' power.
Let me have a taste of that holy water,
And let us pray that He comes this very hour.

Oh, as I walk through this dusty desert,
Oh, the water seems mighty scarce.
But when it comes up to the surface,
I take a little bit more than my share.

I want a double dose of Jesus' blessings,
I want a double dose of Jesus' power.
Let me have a taste of that holy water,
And let us pray that He comes this very hour.

JESUS IS COMING SOON

R.E. Winsett

Troublesome times are here
Filling men’s hearts with fear,
Freedom we all hold dear now is at stake.
Humbling your heart to God
Saves from the chastening rod.
Seek the way pilgrims trod, Christians awake!

Jesus is coming soon,
Morning or night or noon,
Many will meet their doom,
Trumpets will sound.
All of the dead shall rise,
Righteous meet in the sky,
Going where no one dies,
Heavenward bound!

Troubles will soon be o’er,
Happy forever more,
When we meet on that shore,
Free from all care.
Rising up in the sky,
Telling this world goodbye,
Homeward we then will fly, glory to share.

Jesus is coming soon,
Morning or night or noon,
Many will meet their doom,
Trumpets will sound.
All of the dead shall rise,
Righteous meet in the sky,
Going where no one dies,
Heavenward bound!

HOMESICK

(The following song was sung at Katrina's funeral on Saturday. The service was very moving.)

Author Unknown


You're in a better place, I've heard a thousand times
And at least a thousand times I've rejoiced for you
But the reason why I'm broken, the reason why I cry
Is how long must I wait to be with you

I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now

Help me, Lord, cause I don't understand your ways
The reason why I wonder if I'll ever know
But, even if you showed me, the hurt would be the same
'Cause I'm still here so far away from home

I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now

In Christ, there are no goodbyes
And in Christ, there is no end
So I'll hold onto Jesus with all that I have
To see you again
To see you again

And I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now
