HERE I AM TO WORSHIP

Timothy D. Hughes

Light of the world
You stepped down into darkness.
Opened my eyes, let me see.
Beauty that made this heart adore You
Hope of a life spent with You

Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You're my God
You're altogether lovely
All together worthy,
All together wonderful to me

King of all days
Oh, so highly exalted
Glorious in heaven above
Humbly You came
To the earth You created
All for love's sake became poor

Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You're my God
You're altogether lovely
All together worthy,
All together wonderful to me

I'll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross
I'll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross

Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You're my God
You're altogether lovely
All together worthy,
All together wonderful to me

WALK ON THE WATER

Author Unknown

You look around and staring back at you
Another wave of doubt
Will it pull you under
You wonder
What if I'm overtaken
What if I never make it
What if no one's there
Will you hear my prayer?
When you take that first step
Into the unknown
You know that He won't let you go

So what are you waiting for
What do you have to lose
Your insecurities
They try to hold to you
But you know you're made for more
So don't be afraid to move
Your faith is all it takes
And you can walk on the water too

So get out and let your fear fall to the ground
No time to waste, don't wait
And don't you turn around, and miss out on
Everything you were made for
Gotta be, I know you're not sure,
So you play it safe, you try to run away
If you take that first step
Into the unknown
He won't let you go

So what are you waiting for
What do you have to lose
Your insecurities
They try to hold to you
But you know you're made for more
So don't be afraid to move
Your faith is all it takes
And you can walk on the water too

Step out, even when it's storming
Step out, even when you're broken
Step out, even when your heart is telling you,
Telling you to give up
Step out, when your hope is stolen
Step out, you can't see where you're going
You don't have to be afraid
So what are waiting, what are you waiting for

So what are you waiting for
What do you have to lose
Your insecurities
They try to hold to you
But you know you're made for more
So don't be afraid to move
Your faith is all it takes
And you can walk on the water,
Walk on the water too

TRY JESUS

Joseph Smith

If you ever need a friend closer than your brother
Try Jesus
And if you ever need a counselor better than your mother
Try Jesus
And if you ever need a someone to draw you closer to the Father
Try Jesus
And if you ever need a hand to help you step out on the water
Try Jesus

He alone knows your condition
He alone knows your heart’s intention
If you ever needed someone to lay down their life for you
Try Jesus

If you ever need a healer when the doctor walks away
Friend, try Jesus
And if you never thought you’d have the strength to face another day
Try Jesus
If you ever needed someone to walk with you to the end
Try my Jesus
And if you ever need to hear the words “I forgive you” again
Try Jesus

Try Jesus. He never fails
Try Jesus when the doubts assail
Try Jesus He never fails
If you ever need a friend
Try Jesus.

HOLD ME UP

 Gordon Mote

Lord, you promised there'd be nothing
That we couldn't make it through
And in my heart
I know Your Word is true
It's just these waters that I'm sailing through
Right now are mighty rough
Could you wrap me in Your arms
And hold me up?

Hold me up
So I can sing
I've been trying hard to fly
But I can't find my wings
I am traveling through a time
When all I have is not enough
I need to hear Your voice
And feel Your touch
Could you wrap me in Your arms
And hold me up?

Lord, I know I'm not the only one
Whose heart is hurting now
There are others, Lord,
Who need to feel Your power
If anyone knows how we feel,
Lord, we know it's You
So please come and do what only You can do

Hold us up
So we can sing
We've been trying hard to fly
But we can't find our wings
We are traveling through a time
When all we have is not enough
We need to hear Your voice
And feel Your touch
Could you wrap us in Your arms
And hold us up?

HE'S SO GOOD TO ME

Lari Goss

Oh sweet Jesus, my Lord and Savior
He gives sight to eyes of blindness
Caused me to see
How I love Him
I adore Him
There’s no other Friend I’ve found
Who gives grace where sin abounds
And I’m rejoicing
He’s so good to me (so good to me)

I am on my way to Heaven
For my sins have been forgiven
And it’s all because my Jesus loves me
And He’s (Yes He’) so good to me

Oh sweet Jesus, my Lord and Savior
He gives sight to eyes of blindness
Caused me to see
How I love Him
I adore Him
There’s no other Friend I’ve found
Who gives grace where sin abounds
And I’m rejoicing
He’s so good to me (to me)

WHAT FAITH DOES

Donna Brooks, Marty Funderburk and Scott Wilemon

You ask me why I believe like I do
Why I'm so convinced that the Bible is true
I'm here to tell you, it's only because
I've come through enough to see what faith does



Faith sees the invisible, believes the impossible
Receives the incredible, no matter what was
Faith moves the unmovable, proves the unprovable
For anyone willing to trust
Believe and you'll see what faith does




If there's a mountain that stands in your way
From all you can see, it will be there to stay
God said with the faith of a small mustard seed
That mountain will move, believe and you'll see


Faith sees the invisible, believes the impossible
Receives the incredible, no matter what was
Faith moves the unmovable, proves the unprovable
For anyone willing to trust
Believe and you'll see what faith does

TELL THEM THAT I LOVE THEM

Carl Cartee, Gina Boe & Kenna West
 
Old time preacher in a small town church
Bows his head to pray 
Early morning echoes off the empty walls 
In that sacred place
In a few short hours this room will be 
Filled with desperate souls
And he’s begging God to tell him
What they need to know 

And a still small voice says. . .

Tell them that I love them, 
That I died to set them free 
Tell them there’s an answer 
For everything they need
Tell them there’s forgiveness 
And there’s hope in suffering 
The truth never gets old so say it again and again 
Tell them that I love them


He thinks about Charlie who just said "goodbye"
To his bride of fifty years
Nathan and Sadie still praying for a baby 

Through empty arms and tears
This is where they’re running 
To find a little peace inside their pain 
And he’s pleading with the Savior 
For the words to say 
When a still small voice says. . .


Tell them that I love them, 
That I died to set them free 
Tell them there’s an answer 
For everything they need
Tell them there’s forgiveness 
And there’s hope in suffering 
The truth never gets old so say it again and again 
Tell them that I love them

Tell them grace is still amazing 
And there is power in the blood 
And the old rugged cross is enough

Tell them that I love them, 
That I died to set them free 
Tell them there’s an answer 
For everything they need
Tell them there’s forgiveness 
And there’s hope in suffering 
The truth never gets old so say it again and again 
Tell them that I love them

DON'T LET THE SANDALS FOOL YOU

Rodney Griffin

She wrapped Him up in swaddling clothes
Laid Him in a manger
Picked Him up and held Him close
Kept Him free from danger
She knew she had to let Him go to face the world someday
As the scoffers gathered round Him, I thought I heard her say

Don’t let the sandals fool ya, brother
This Man is holy God
I tell you He is like no other
He's walked where angels trod
You say He’s only Joseph’s son
I tell you He’s the Holy One
He’s Heaven's Hallelujah; don’t let the sandals fool ya
This man (from Galilee) is holy God

He could tell about the darkness of space
Tthe day before creation
How he sea the stars in place
Above earth’s gravitation
Then what He did the seventh day when all his work was through
He, the Alpha and Omega, came down to me and you

Don’t let the sandals fool ya, brother
This Man is holy God

I tell you He is like no other
He's walked where angels trod

You say He’s only Joseph’s son
I tell you He’s the Holy One
He’s Heaven's Hallelujah; don’t let the sandals fool ya
This man (from Galilee) is holy God

SHE STILL REMEMBERS JESUS' NAME

Melody Goodman

Time has cast a shadow on her memory
And age has robbed her mind of dates and names
Seems the pieces of her past are lost forever
And the old home place just doesn’t seem the same
Faded pictures taped into the family albums
She tries in vain but can’t seem to recall
That the handsome man was once her loving husband
Who went Home to be with Jesus just last fall

But she still remembers Jesus and His amazing grace
He left a mark upon her heart that time cannot erase
She can tell you who He is and what He did and why He came
Yes she still remembers Jesus’ name

Still her children come most every day to see her
Behind their smiles they try to hide their pain
But at times it's hard to keep the tears from coming
When she asks her first born child, “Now what’s your name?”
Yet she knows every word to “Rock of Ages Cleft for Me”
You can feel His presence in the room when she quotes John 3:16
Though she was just a young girl when she first knelt down to pray
She remembers when she met Him like it was yesterday

Yes she still remembers Jesus and His amazing grace
He left a mark upon her heart that time cannot erase
She can tell you who He is and what He did and why He came
Yes she still remembers Jesus’ name

It’s a comfort to her family and it helps to ease their pain
That she stills remembers Jesus' name

THE DEAREST FRIEND I EVER HAD

 G.T. Speer

When I was drifting out in sin
I had no peace, no joy within
But Jesus came and made me glad
The dearest friend I ever had

When Jesus comes the way is bright
For He's the Way, the Truth, the Light
He cheers me on when I am sad
The dearest friend I ever had

He saved my soul; oh, bless His name
I'll never forget the day He came
He makes me glad when I am sad
The dearest friend I ever had

O sinner come to Jesus now
And at His feet just humbly bow
He'll save your soul and make you glad
The dearest friend you’ll ever have

He saved my soul; oh, bless His name
I'll never forget the day He came
He makes me glad when I am sad
The dearest friend I ever had
