TEN THOUSAND YEARS

Elmer Cole

Soon I'll come to the end of my journey
And I'll meet the One who gave His life for me.
I will thank Him for the love that He gave me
And ten thousand years or more I'll reign with Him.

Ten thousand years, we'll just be started.
Ten thousand years, we've just begun.
The battle is over and the victory's been won.
Ten thousand years, and we've just begun.

We will just begin to sing love's sweet story.
It's a song that the angels cannot sing.
I'm redeemed by the blood of my Savior,
And ten thousand years or more, I'll praise His Name!

Ten thousand years, we'll just be started.
Ten thousand years, we've just begun.
The battle is over and the victory's been won.
Ten thousand years, and we've just begun.

WHEN LIFE GETS BROKEN

Matt Hybarger and Michael O'Brien

Hands reaching out
No one to hold
You've been abandoned
With no place to go
Wounded and wanting
Such desperate times
Cold bitter tears are filling your eyes

Get a glimpse of Jesus
For He is right there with you
He knows just what you need

When life gets broken
And you're in despair
He'll carry your burden
When it's too much to bear
It's down in the valley
Where He'll give you strength
And there is nothing you have lost
That He can't replace
He'll help you start all over again
When life gets broken

You hoped God would heal her
But she went home anyway
Now it's hard to imagine
How you'll make it through the day
Weeks turn to years
Time's passing you by
But you're still holding on
To the how's and the why's

Get a glimpse of Jesus
For He is right there with you
He knows just what you need

When life gets broken
And you're in despair
He'll carry your burden
When it's too much to bear
It's down in the valley
Where He'll give you strength
And there is nothing you have lost
That He can't replace
He'll help you start all over again
When life gets broken

Healing waters
Heal our troubled souls
Jesus, sweet Jesus
Cleanse and make us whole

When life gets broken
And you're in despair
He'll carry your burden
When it's too much to bear
It's down in the valley
Where He'll give you strength
And there is nothing you have lost
That He can't replace
He'll help you start all over again
He'll help you start all over again
When life gets broken

GO TELL THE WORLD

Ronnie Hinson

He doesn't have to keep another promise
Every prophecy He made has been fulfilled
The season of His coming is upon us
Then this world will know what Jesus said is real

Go tell the world it's not a story
Go tell the world He left the tomb
Go tell the world He's now in Glory
Go tell the world He'll be back; He's coming soon.

It's time to sound alarms and heed the warning
Christians have to make the message clear
Be ready; He may come before the morning
If they miss it, they can't say they didn't hear


Go tell the world it's not a story
Go tell the world He left the tomb
Go tell the world He's now in Glory
Go tell the world He'll be back; He's coming soon.

If we stand, the weak will lean upon us
If we shine, the blind will see the light
We're so sinner-friendly, we're dishonest
What's wrong with telling sinners to get right?

Go tell the world it's not a story
Go tell the world He left the tomb
Go tell the world He's now in Glory
Go tell the world He'll be back; He's coming soon.

COME TO THE THRONE OF GRACE

Come to the Throne of Grace
Don't be afraid
I won't turn you away
Just let Me into your heart
And My love will wash your tears away

I know you
I know you completely
And on your darkest journey
I have been with you
All the weight of guilt and shame
You carry on your shoulders
It's time to hand it over
And let it go

Come to the Throne of Grace
Don't be afraid
I won't turn you away
Just let Me into your heart
And My love will wash your tears away

I can hear the silent tears
Above the noise and laughter
The things you're running after
Will let you down
So here I stand before you now
With arms of love to hold you
Let my grace enfold you
And come to me...
Run to me!

Come to the Throne of Grace
Don't be afraid
I won't turn you away
Just let Me into your heart
And My love will wash your tears away...

Come...
Just come...
Come...

VOICE OF THE SAVIOR

Some people try to listen to the bottom of a bottle
Some people try to listen to a needle in their arm
Some people try to listen to the money in their pocket
Some people try to listen to another's arms

You and I are not that different
We got a void, and we're just trying to fill it up
With something that'll give just a little peace
All we want is a hand to reach to
Open arms that say, "I love you"
We'd give anything to hear
The voice of the Savior

Some people try to find it with blind ambition
Some people try to find it where no one else has gone
Some people try to find it in the crowns of victory
Some people get defeated and lose the strength to carry on

You and I are not that different
We got a void, and we're just trying to fill it up
With something that'll give just a little peace
All we want is a hand to reach to
Open arms that say, "I love you"
We'd give anything to hear
The voice of the Savior

Some people try to find it in the shadow of a steeple
Some people try to find it in the back row pew
Some people try to find it in the arms of Jesus
That's where I found it; how about you?

You and I are not that different
We got a void, and we're just trying to fill it up
With something that'll give just a little peace
All we want is a hand to reach to
Open arms that say, "I love you"
We'd give anything to hear
The voice of the Savior

FEELING MIGHTY FINE

(Can't find the author)

I woke up this morning feeling fine
I woke up with Heaven on my mind
I woke up with joy in my soul
'Cause I knew my Lord had control
I knew I was walkin' in the light
'Cause I'd been on my knees in the night
And I prayed till the Lord gave a sign
And now I'm feeling mighty fine

Well, I'm feeling mighty fine
I've got Heaven on my mind
Don't you know I want to go
Where the milk and honey flow
There's a light that always shines
Down inside this heart of mine
I've got Heaven on my mind
And I'm feeling, feeling mighty fine

We're walking with Jesus all the time
We're walking and talking as we climb
We're traveling a road to the sky
Where I know I'll live when I die
He's been telling me all about that land
And He tells me that everything is grand
And He says that a home will be mine
And now I'm feeling mighty fine

Well, I'm feeling mighty fine
I've got Heaven on my mind
Don't you know I want to go
Where the milk and honey flow
There's a light that always shines
Down inside this heart of mine
I've got Heaven on my mind
And I'm feeling, feeling mighty fine

GOD WILL CLOSE THE DOOR

Kenna Turner West, Sue C. Smith, Simon Hawkins

The ark was built and two by two
They went inside and stayed
Though he'd never seen a storm
Noah just obeyed
The sky was bright and blue
But Noah still believed
And what God did for him
I know He'll do for me

God will close the door
When the storm clouds gather round me
When the waters roar
His hand will protect me
I run to His mercy
And like He's done before
God will close the door

I've seen God open doors of opportunity
He's opened windows of His love
And blessings rain on me
But I'm as thankful for
The times when He says, "No"
And I believe, without a doubt
That when I need it most

God will close the door
When the storm clouds gather round me
When the waters roar
His hand will protect me
I run to His mercy
And like He's done before
God will close the door

Yeah, He'll shut it
Lock it
Hold on to the key
And when the flood is over
He'll be taking care of me

God will close the door
When the storm clouds gather round me
When the waters roar
His hand will protect me
I run to His mercy
And like He's done before
God will close the door

PATCHING IT UP

Steve Gulley

It seems that every time I need Him
My Lord is always there;
When no one else seems to have the time,
Jesus always cares;
I wonder just what I might do
If I called His name one day
And the Heavens above just opened up,
And I heard my Saviour say.

"I'm through patching it up,
I'm through giving you love
Though your world is torn apart,
And I'll never again wash away your sin
Or mend your broken heart,
I'm through bearing your burden's 

And all of your hurt'n
And giving your poor heart ease.
Tell me why should I do anything for you;
You never do anything for me."

But I thank my God in Heaven each night
My Lord is not that way
I know He's watching over me
Each and every single day
And I don't have to wonder about His love
'Cause his mercy flows so free
And I know just exactly what He'll say
When I'm down on my knees

I'll always patch things up,
I'll always give you love,
When you world is torn apart
No matter where you've been,
I'll wash away your sin
And mend your broken heart.
I'll always bear all your burdens 

And all of your hurt'n
And give your poor heart ease;
Yes, I'll always do anything for you
No matter what you do to me.

PRAISE GOD, IT'S SETTLED, I'M SAVED

Larry Petree

Rivers of joy are now flooding my soul
I know my sin debt is paid
I'm forgiven of my sin, and I've been born again
Praise God, it's settled, I'm saved!

Praise God, what a wonderful peace I have found
It's settled; I know that my name's written down
I'm saved; I'm free, no longer a slave
Praise God, it's settled, I'm saved!

The burden of sin that I've carried so long
It's gone; Christ rose from the grave
And you can't make me doubt what I'm gonna shout
Praise God, it's settled, I'm saved!

Praise God, what a wonderful peace I have found
It's settled; I know that my name's written down
I'm saved; I'm free, no longer a slave
Praise God, it's settled, I'm saved!

ON THE BANKS OF THE PROMISED LAND

 Author Unknown

I have built my life on the solid Rock
Far away from the sinking sand
And I cast my eyes to the home that waits
On the banks of the Promised Land

There’s a song of praise that is lifted there
By the saints and the angel band
And I long to go and to join the choir
On the banks of the Promised Land

Hallelujah, what a morning
When I reach for that nail-scarred hand
And I'm led from grace to glory
On the banks of the Promised Land

Every grief and pain that has found me here
Jesus knows, and He understands
They'll be washed away as I cross death's stream
To the banks of the Promised Land

Hallelujah, what a morning
When I reach for that nail-scarred hand
And I'm led from grace to glory
On the banks of the Promised Land

Then I'll see the face of my Savior dear
Beckoned close by His sweet command
All my burdens gone; I will rest at last
On the banks of the Promised Land

Hallelujah, what a morning
When I reach for that nail-scarred hand
And I'm led from grace to glory
On the banks of the Promised Land

Oh, who will come and go with me?
I am bound for the promised land

HE'S ALREADY IN YOUR TOMORROW

Mark Lanier, Phil Cross

I have a Father, the Master of time
He holds the world in His hands
He looks from heaven and sees where you are
Arranging your life in His plans
Preparing you now, unfolding the way
To all your tomorrows and whatever you face

He's already in your tomorrow
He's walking one step ahead
Whether it's joy or it's sorrow
He'll do just what He said
He'll never leave you lonely
In the land of the great unknown
He's already in your tomorrow
Don't be afraid, keep pressing on

Often you struggle, looking ahead
Dreading tomorrow it seems
Embracing the present, forgetting the past
Giving up on your dreams
You're stranded between your faith and your fear
Yet no matter the conflict, the future is clear

He's already in your tomorrow
He's walking one step ahead
Whether it's joy or it's sorrow
He'll do just what He said
He'll never leave you lonely
In the land of the great unknown
He's already in your tomorrow
Don't be afraid, keep pressing on

HOME IS SOUNDING BETTER

Author Unknown

The more I hear about it
The more I long to go
To the land beyond the river
Where milk and honey flow
Though this world tries to make me feel as ease
No matter where I roam
My heart is just a stranger here
 On its way to a place called Home

Sometimes I get so Homesick
I can hardly wait
To see my friends and loved ones
Inside the Eastern Gate
Though I've enjoyed this Christian journey
I'll be so glad when it's far behind
'Cause Home is sounding better all the time

If it had been left up to me
I'd be long gone from this place
And you would find me 'round the throne
Singing "Amazing Grace"
Oh, but my Father knows what's best for me
There's a reason I'm still here below
But that doesn't change where my heart really is
And where I long to go

Sometimes I get so Homesick
I can hardly wait
To see my friends and loved ones
Inside the Eastern Gate
Though I've enjoyed this Christian journey
I'll be so glad when it's far behind
'Cause Home is sounding better all the time
