I HAVE A HOPE

Johnny Minick

What's the big deal? Why all the excitement?
Folks say to me wherever I go
Why get so loud? Why all the emotion?
There is no cause to make such a show
If they only knew the change in me
When I found the hope that set me free
I can't help but shout, for I know without doubt
That I have a hope

I have a hope; it's not just emotion
I have a hope that anchors my soul
It's more than a dream, more than a notion
It brings me new life and it sings in the night
I have a hope

This hope that I have, He's lived through the ages
He's never changed; He's always the same
When I read His Word, He walks through the pages
Something goes through me when I hear His name
His name is Counselor and Friend
He is the One on Whom I depend
His Word is my sword; yes, Jesus is Lord
I have a hope

I have a hope; it's not just emotion
I have a hope that anchors my soul
It's more than a dream, more than a notion
It brings me new life and it sings in the night
I have a hope

NO NEED TO DOUBT HIM NOW

Roy E. Coble, Jr. and Sydney G. Coble

Looking back through the years
The heartaches and tears
My Lord has never once let me down
Though I don't understand
Still I trust in His plan
For He said that His grace would abound.

No need to doubt Him now
He'll make a way somehow
Safely this far Jesus has brought me
No need to doubt Him now.

Child of God, have no fear
Though your path seems unclear
Some day God's plan will unfold
He has never, never failed
He has always prevailed
The Lord is still in control.

No need to doubt Him now
He'll make a way somehow
Safely this far Jesus has brought me
No need to doubt Him now.

There's Still Room, There's Still Hope, There's Still Time

Rodney Griffin

There's still room at the cross
For another heavy burden
To be left by a weary passerby
There's still hope for your cause
For a loving God is waiting
To restore to you the joy you felt inside
There's still time to decide
That the Father really loves you
And it's true, He'll never leave your side
No matter what you've heard
You can believe His Word
There's still room
There's still hope
There's still time

God's Word has been revealed for all to hear
Jesus loves you; He cares
So when the storms of life are drawing near
He your heartache will share

There's still room at the cross
For another heavy burden
To be left by a weary passerby
There's still hope for your cause
For a loving God is waiting
To restore to you the joy you felt inside
There's still time to decide
That the Father really loves you
And it's true, He'll never leave your side
No matter what you've heard
You can believe His Word
There's still room
There's still hope
There's still time

You may wonder if the Lord is looking on
Can He comfort my heart
There's room for your burden at the cross
Lay it down where you are

There's still room at the cross
For another heavy burden
To be left by a weary passerby
There's still hope for your cause
For a loving God is waiting
To restore to you the joy you felt inside
There's still time to decide
That the Father really loves you
And it's true, He'll never leave your side
No matter what you've heard
You can believe His Word
There's still room
There's still hope
There's still time

NEW GRACE

Tom Hayes

All of grace is my story
All the way from Earth to Glory
Since by grace He lifted me from sin and woe
Living grace He has extended
As on Him my heart depended
He'll give new grace when it's my time to go.

Grace not yet discovered
Grace not yet uncovered
Grace from His bountiful store
Grace to cross the river
And grace to face forever
But there'll be new grace I've not needed before.

There's been grace for every mile
There's been grace for every trial
There's been grace sufficient from His vast supply
Grace to make my heart more tender
Grace to love and pray for sinners
But there'll be new grace when it's my time to die.
Grace not yet discovered
Grace not yet uncovered
Grace from His bountiful store
Grace to cross the river
And grace to face forever
But there'll be new grace I've not needed before.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY

Aaron Wilburn, Eddie Crook

As I wake up with the morning of each day that passes by,
And I listen to the sounds upon my ear;
I can’t help but keep a watch toward the eastern sky,
And I wonder if the trumpet will be the next sound that I hear.

What a beautiful day for the Lord to come again,
What a beautiful day for Him to take His children home;
How I long to see His face and to touch His nail-scarred hands,
What a beautiful day for the Lord to come again.

Oh, my earthly disappointments and trials here below,
Fade away when I remember His last words;
He said He’d return and receive His children unto Him,
And I’m longing just to look upon the face of my Lord.

Oh, what a beautiful day for the Lord to come again,
What a beautiful day for Him to take His children home;
How I long to see His face and to touch His nail-scarred hands,
What a beautiful day for the Lord to come again.

70 x 7

Matt McFarland

Oh, Lord, Its hard to believe
How many times I’ve been wronged and deceived
By someone who calls you Father
Someone who calls You Friend
I don’t mean to be a bother
Will this ever end?
How many times must I say “I forgive you”?
Then I’m reminded of what you said in Matthew

Over and over and then one more time again
If someone needs forgiveness, give it up to them
Let go of all the bitterness
That your hearts hold in
Remember the times you’ve been forgiven
70 x 7

I know I’ve heard that story a thousand times before
But what I don’t understand is how to do it, Lord
Will You give me the strength and power to endure?
'Cause I can’t do it alone, This I know for sure
I’ve always been out to hurt those who hurt me
Lord, help me live by Your words of mercy

Over and over and then one more time again
If someone needs forgiveness, give it up to them
Let go of all the bitterness
That your hearts hold in
Remember the times you’ve been forgiven
70 x 7

JOY UNSPEAKABLE

Barney E. Warren

I have found His grace is all complete,
He supplieth every need;
While I sit and learn at Jesus’ feet,
I am free, yes, free indeed.

I have found the pleasure I once craved,
It is joy and peace within;
What a wondrous blessing, I am saved
From the awful gulf of sin.

It is joy unspeakable and full of glory,
Full of glory, full of glory;
It is joy unspeakable and full of glory,
Oh, the half has never yet been told.

I have found that hope so bright and clear,
Living in the realm of grace;
Oh, the Savior’s presence is so near,
I can see His smiling face.

I have found the joy no tongue can tell,
How its waves of glory roll;
It is like a great o’erflowing well,
Springing up within my soul.

It is joy unspeakable and full of glory,
Full of glory, full of glory;
It is joy unspeakable and full of glory,
Oh, the half has never yet been told.

DON'T LET ME LOSE SIGHT

Jim Brady

It crossed my mind again
Just how my life would be
Had the Father’s mercy
Not included me
I saw myself still drifting
On a raging sea
Farther out from nowhere
Hurting endlessly
And turning back this page of time
It all comes into view
I realize I’m nothing without You

Don’t let me lose sight
Of who You are
Lord, help me remember
My life before You came
May I never forget
Your sacrifice and Your pain
Don’t let me lose sight
Of who You are

My mind can’t comprehend
The sacrifice You made
To redeem this hurting soul
An awesome price was paid
You endured the suffering,
Took all my shame
Faced the bitter agony
As they mocked Your name
And when I look back to the cross
I clearly see the truth
I know my life is worthless without You

Don’t let me lose sight
Of who You are
Lord, help me remember
My life before You came
May I never forget
Your sacrifice and Your pain
Don’t let me lose sight
Of who You are

LEAD ME TO THE CROSS

Savior, I come
Quiet my soul; remember
Redemption's hill
Where Your blood was spilled
For my ransom
Everything I once held dear
I count it all as loss

Lead me to the cross
Where Your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord, I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to You
Oh lead me, lead me to the cross

You were as I
Tempted and tried
Human
The Word became flesh
Bore my sin and death
Now You're risen
Everything I once held dear
I count it all as loss

Lead me to the cross
Where Your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord, I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to You
Oh lead me, lead me to the cross
