I START MY DAY

Kirk Talley

I start my day with a prayer of thanksgiving
I start my day with a prayer filled with praise
Let me tell you I have learned the joy of living
And it’s based upon the way I start my day

People ask me, "Why are you so happy?"
Some have even asked what kind of pill I take
Well, let me tell you I am high on life with Jesus
And it’s all because of how I start my day

I start my day with a prayer of thanksgiving
I start my day with a prayer filled with praise
Let me tell you I have learned the joy of living
And it’s based upon the way I start my day

You may wonder why you always feel defeated
Why the good times seem to never roll your way
I’m not saying that your life will be perfect
But I’m saying good things happen when we pray

There are those who only ask the Lord for mercy
There are those who pray for miracles each day
Well, one day I came up begging for forgiveness
Now I thank Him for the good things when I pray

I start my day with a prayer of thanksgiving
I start my day with a prayer filled with praise
Let me tell you I have learned the joy of living
And it’s based upon the way I start my day

THE GREATEST GIFT

Ron Hamilton

If I search through the pages of history
Look through the halls of time
Seeking for the greatest gift of all
A gift to all mankind
I would stop at a manger in Bethlehem
Bow in wonder there
See a tiny present wrapped in love
A gift beyond compare

Oh, the greatest gift
Oh, the greatest gift of all
Sent from a loving Father
In the form of a child so small
All the wealth of Heaven's splendor
Wrapped up in a child so tender
Oh, the greatest gift in all the world is Jesus.

If I look for the gift that reigns supreme
Above the hills of time
A gift to fulfill each prophets dream
The highest gift sublime
If I ask every angel in Paradise
"Where can it be found?"
Heaven's mighty host would start to swell
Till earth and sky resound

Oh, the greatest gift
Oh, the greatest gift of all
Sent from a loving Father
In the form of a child so small
All the wealth of Heaven's splendor
Wrapped up in a child so tender
Oh, the greatest gift in all the world is Jesus.

WHERE THE ROSES NEVER FADE

Robert and Janie West Metzgar

I am going to a city,
Where the streets with gold are laid;
Where the tree of life is blooming
And the roses never fade.

Here they bloom but for a season
Soon their beauty is decayed.
I am going to a city,
Where the roses never fade

In this world we have our troubles,
Satan snares we must evade.
We'll be free from all temptations;
Where the roses never fade.

Here they bloom but for a season
Soon their beauty is decayed.
I am going to a city,
Where the roses never fade.

Loved ones gone to be with Jesus,
In their robes of white arrayed;
Now are waiting for my coming,
Where the roses never fade.

Here they bloom but for a season
Soon their beauty is decayed.
I am going to a city,
Where the roses never fade.

I've Been to the Bottom

Rodney Griffin

In sorrow I was sinking
Had all but stopped believing
Anyone would hear my call
Lost everything I treasured
Grief was beyond measure
I wondered how far I'd fall
In my desperation
I called upon my Savior
"Lead me to some solid ground."
Then, underneath the rubble
Of all my pain and trouble
You'll never believe what I found

Well, I've been to the bottom
And I've found at the bottom
There's a blessed Holy Rock
A place for us to stand
Away from sinking sand
Safe in the hand of God
A foundation that is sure
And ever will endure
To comfort the hurting heart
Well, I've been to the bottom
And I've found at the bottom
There's a blessed Holy Rock

Well, if you're world is crumbling
Don't know what is coming
You spend you days 'a wonderin' why
Everything around you
Seems to work against you
You question, "Will it ever stop?"
Friend, I've seen the bottom
I know just where you're headin'
It's not where you think
Believe me when I tell you
That God is gonna bless you
Way beyond your dreams

Well, I've been to the bottom
And I've found at the bottom
There's a blessed Holy Rock
A place for us to stand
Away from sinking sand
Safe in the hand of God
A foundation that is sure
And ever will endure
To comfort the hurting heart
Well, I've been to the bottom
And I've found at the bottom
There's a blessed Holy Rock

HEAVENLY SUNRISE

Nathan Widener & Steve Wood

As I wake up in the morning
As I look across the sky
This could be a brand new dawning
When I bid this world goodbye

Heavenly sunrise, some glorious morning
When our Lord takes us home
What a great celebration
One like we've never known

I have read in my Bible
How my Savior will appear
He's gonna come on
Great clouds of glory
And that day is getting near

Heavenly sunrise, some glorious morning
When our Lord takes us home
What a great celebration
One like we've never known

SHARE IT WITH JESUS

Joe Diquattro

Share it with Jesus
He always listens
There is no heartache
That He cannot mend
Pour out your feelings
And He'll pour in healing
Just bring your burden
And share it with Jesus

There are so many things
Locked up inside of us
Things that are hard to face
And much harder to tell someone
But Jesus knows our fears
And He understands each tear
He's waiting patiently
And He will set us free

Share it with Jesus
He always listens
There is no heartache
That He cannot mend
Pour out your feelings
And He'll pour in healing
Just bring your burden
And share it with Jesus

HE WROTE MY NAME

O. S. Davis

The blessed Savior wrote my name
When I was born again,
He wrote it when He saved my soul;
He wrote that I had made aright
My ev'ry sinful wrong,
He wrote my name on heaven's roll.

He wrote my name way up in glory,
He saved my soul from sin and shame.
I never shall forget the day
The blessed Savior wrote my name.

I'll be no stranger when I reach
My home in glory land,
My name is in the Book of Life;
The blessed Savior wrote it when
He saved my soul from sin,
He saved my soul from sin and strife.

He wrote my name way up in glory,
He saved my soul from sin and shame.
I never shall forget the day
The blessed Savior wrote my name.

If I should live a thousand years
Upon this earth below,
I never could forget the day;
That Jesus wrote my name within
The blessed Book of Life,
And took my many sins away.

He wrote my name way up in glory,
He saved my soul from sin and shame.
I never shall forget the day
The blessed Savior wrote my name.

IT WON'T RAIN ALWAYS

Gloria Gaither / Bill Gaither / Aaron Wilburn

Someone said that in this life
Some rain is bound to fall
And each one sheds his share of tears
And trouble troubles us all
But the hurt won't hurt forever
And the tears are sure to dry

And it won't rain always
The clouds will soon be gone
The sun that they've been hiding
Has been there all along
And it won't rain always
God's promises are true
The sun's gonna shine
In His own good time
And He will see you through

I JUST CAME TO TALK WITH YOU, LORD

Dottie Rambo

I didn't come here to ask You for anything
I just came to talk with You, Lord
You've answered a million prayers or more,
That I forgot to thank You for
I just came to talk with You Lord.

Maybe tomorrow there'll be trouble and sorrow
And a thousand teardrops may fall
But until I face tomorrow's task
I have no special favor to ask
I just came to talk with You, Lord

How many times, Lord
Have troubles brought me down to my knees
Oh, but I just came to talk with You Lord
You see, I have no selfish motive in mind
I just want to thank You for all the other times
I just came to talk with You Lord

Maybe tomorrow there'll be trouble and sorrow
And a thousand teardrops may fall
But until I face tomorrow's task
I have no special favor to ask
I just came to talk with You, Lord

YOU CAN

Rodney Griffin

Sometimes I get caught up in wondering
Just when my stormy circumstance will end
Forgetting that the hand that I am holding
Is the precious hand of my all-knowing Friend
Who sees beyond the veil that I am facing
Past the unknown mysteries to come
Though I admit I can't see where I'm heading
I'm holding to the only One Who does

Lord, You can explain all the wonders
And You can erase all the fear
You can dispel all the darkness
See a new day that's dawning just a few miles from here
When I can't see a purpose or plan,
Lord, You can!

Lord, I forget that You're not limited to vision
These earthly eyes can only see so far
And I need to be reminded of my mission
To help others find the way to where You are
Not to focus on the troubles that surround me
Or on hard circumstances I may face
But to see it all as what You're working through me
Pieces of a willing plan You've put in place

You can explain all the wonders
And You can erase all the fear
You can dispel all the darkness,
See a new day that's dawning just a few miles from here
When I can't see a purpose or plan,
Lord, You can!
