WHEN HE SAID, "LIVE"

Hannah Smith

When I was wounded lying on the ground
With the blood of my transgressions
No hope of ever being found
The Lord passed by, saw me about to die
With compassion in his voice
He spoke and I had to rise

When He said live, I had to breathe
When He said dance, I felt heaven's melody
When He said sing, I heard redemption song
And He gave me the faith to carry on
When He said live

When you were dying, lying all alone
Beaten and battered from a harsh and cruel world
The Lord passed by with love in his eyes
He had mercy and forgiveness
And His Word couldn't be denied.

When He says live, you have to breathe
When He says dance, you feel heaven's melody
When He says sing, you hear redemption song
And He gives you the faith to carry on
When He says live

Oh..My soul cried out for life and a Saviour
Yeah... He found me and saved me with just one word

When He said live, I had to breathe
When He said dance, I felt heaven's melody
When He said sing, I heard redemption song
And He gave me the faith to carry on
When He said live

GUILTY OF LOVE

Author Unknown

Judas led the soldiers to the garden where He prayed
Jesus was arrested by the ones He came to save
Swords and clubs and angry words were coming from all sides
Jesus only saw the broken hearts of his accusers that night

He was guilty of compassion
For the lonely and the weak
Guilty of forgiving
And setting prisoners free
Guilty of believing
The highest price was not too much
But most of all
The sinless lamb of God
Was guilty of love

Pilate said of Jesus, “I find no fault in this man”
Still the crowd said, “Crucify!” and would not understand
Pilate washed his hands, and then he set Barabbas free
Jesus was their only hope, 

But they were too hard-hearted to see

He was guilty of compassion
For the lonely and the weak
Guilty of forgiving
And setting prisoners free
Guilty of believing
The highest price was not too much
But most of all
The sinless lamb of God
Was guilty of love


Love that sees the best inside the worst of us
Love that did what no one would have done
He paid with his own blood

Oh, what love

He was guilty of compassion
For the lonely and the weak
Guilty of forgiving
And setting prisoners free
Guilty of believing
The highest price was not too much
But most of all
The sinless lamb of God
Was guilty of love

HEAVEN'S HERO

Rodney Griffin

He traded a palace for a stable to be born
Removed a royal diadem to receive a crown of thorns
Exchanged the praises of angels
For the mockery of men
This is Heaven's Hero
My Savior, Lord and Friend

Heaven's Hero I will follow
He is the Captain of the free
He will champion my tomorrow
Heaven's Hero is all I'll ever need

He is the one Christ
The one and only Way
And He paid the one price for a debt I could not pay
He's the one in the present
The Ending and the Start
The One the only Hero is the Hero of my heart

Heaven's Hero I will follow
He is the Captain of the free
He will champion my tomorrow
Heaven's Hero is all I'll ever need

He is higher than the highest,
Greater than the Great
No one will ever take His crown away
He's more mighty than the mightiest
He reigns from above
He's the all-time, undisputed, undefeated Champion
The all-time, undisputed, undefeated Champion

He will champion my tomorrow
Heaven's Hero, Heaven's Hero
Heaven's Hero is all I'll ever need
He's all I need

IN MY ARMS

Your baby blues so full of wonder
Your curly cues, your contagious smile
And as I watch you start to grow up
All I can do is hold you tight

Knowing clouds will rage in
Storms will race in
But you will be safe in my arms
Rains will pour down
Waves will crash all around
But you will be safe in my arms

Story books are full of fairy tales
Of kings and queens and the bluest skies
My heart is torn just in knowing
You'll someday see the truth from lies

Knowing clouds will rage in
Storms will race in
But you will be safe in my arms
Rains will pour down
Waves will crash all around
But you will be safe in my arms

Castles--they might crumble
Dreams may not come true
But you are never all alone
Because I will always
Always love you

Clouds will rage in
Storms will race in
But you will be safe in my arms
Rains will pour down
Waves will crash all around
But you will be safe in my arms

THE SECRET PLACE

 Author Unknown

My heart is like a house
One day I let the Savior in
There are many rooms
Where we would visit now and then
But then one day He saw that door
I knew the day had come too soon
I said, “Jesus, I’m not ready
For us to visit in that room

‘Cause that’s a place in my heart
Where even I don’t go
I have some things hidden there
I don’t want no one to know”
But He handed me the key
With tears of love on His face
He said, “I want to make you clean
Let me go in your secret place.”

So I opened up the door
And as the two of us walked in
I was so ashamed
His light revealed my hidden sin
But when I think about that room now
I’m not afraid any more
‘Cause I know my hidden sin
No longer hides behind that door

That was a place in my heart
Where even I wouldn’t go
I had some things hidden there
I didn’t want no one to know
But He handed me the key
With tears of love on His face
And He made me clean
I let Him in my secret place

Is there a place in your heart
Where even you won’t go?

EAST TO WEST

Author Unknown

Here I am, Lord, and I'm drowning 
In your sea of forgetfulness 
The chains of yesterday surround me 
I yearn for peace and rest 
I don't want to end up where you found me 
And it echoes in my mind 
Keeps me awake tonight 

I know you've cast my sins as far 
As the East is from the West 
And I stand before you now 
As though I've never sinned but today 
I feel like I'm just one mistake away 
From you leaving me this way 

Jesus, can you show me 
Just how far the East is from the West 
Cause I can't bear to see the man I've been 
Come rising up in me again 
In the arms of your mercy I find rest 
Cause you know just how far the East is from the West 
From one scarred hand to the other 

I start the day the war begins 
Endless reminding of my sin 
Time and time again 
Your Truth is drowned out by the storm I'm in 
Today I feel like I'm just one mistake away 
From you leaving me this way 

Jesus, can you show me 
Just how far the East is from the West 
Cause I can't bear to see the man I've been 
Come rising up in me again 
In the arms of your mercy I find rest 
Cause you know just how far the East is from the West 
From one scarred hand to the other 

I know You've washed me white 
Turned my darkness into light 
I need Your peace to get me through 
To get me through this night 
I can't live by what I feel 
But by the truth Your Word reveals 
I'm not holding on to You 
But You're holding on to me 
You're holding on to me 

Jesus, You know just how far 
The East is from the West 
I don't have to see the man I've been 
Come rising up in me again 
In the arms of Your mercy I find rest 
(The arms of Your mercy I find rest) 
Cause You know just how far the East is from the West 
From one scarred hand to the other

THERE IS A RIVER

David Sapp and Max Sapp

There came a fount from Heaven
It was like a mighty rushing wind
It filled their hearts with singing
And it gave them peace within
The prophet gave this promise
"The Spirit will descend
And from your inner being
A river with no end."

There is a river, and it flows from deep within
There is a fountain, that frees the soul from sin
Come to this water; there is a vast supply
There is a river, that never shall run dry.

There was a thirsty woman,
Who was drawing from a well
You see her life was ruined and wasted
And her soul was bound for hell
Oh but then she met the Master
And He told about her sin
And He said “If you drink this water,
You'll never thirst again.'

There is a river, and it flows from deep within
There is a fountain, that frees the soul from sin
Come to this water; there is a vast supply
There is a river, that never shall run dry.

JUST A LITTLE TALK WITH JESUS

Clevant Derricks

I once was lost in sin, but Jesus took me in
And then a little light from heaven filled my soul
It bathed my heart in love and wrote my name above
And just a little talk with Jesus made me whole

Now let us have a little talk with Jesus
Let us tell Him all about our troubles
He will hear our faintest cry
He will answer by and by
Now when you feel a little prayer wheel turning
Then you'll know a little fire is burning
And you will find a little talk with Jesus makes it right

Sometimes my path seems drear without a ray of cheer
And then a cloud of doubt may hide the light of day
The mists of sin may rise and hide the starry skies
But just a little talk with Jesus clears the way

Now let us have a little talk with Jesus
Let us tell Him all about our troubles
He will hear our faintest cry
He will answer by and by
Now when you feel a little prayer wheel turning
Then you'll know a little fire is burning
And you will find a little talk with Jesus makes it right

I may have doubts and fears, my eyes be filled with tears
But Jesus is a friend who watches day and night
I go to Him in prayer, He knows my every care
And just a little talk with Jesus makes it right

Now let us have a little talk with Jesus
Let us tell Him all about our troubles
He will hear our faintest cry
He will answer by and by
Now when you feel a little prayer wheel turning
Then you'll know a little fire is burning
And you will find a little talk with Jesus makes it right

WHEREVER YOU ARE

Joyce Martin McCullough, Harrie McCullough, and Joel Lindsey

Are you standing at a crossroad
Wondering which road you should take?
And you're dreading the decision
And a possible mistake?
But the will of God won't lead you
Where the grace of God can't keep you.
You will never be out of His care;
Remember that the Lord's already there

Wherever you are,
Wherever you're going,
God is right there beside you
Seeing and knowing.
Wherever you go,
He already knows
What lies ahead and what's behind.
You'll always find He's never too far
From wherever you are.

You are waiting to hear thunder
And see lightning in the sky,
Oh, but God can work His wonders
Through a still small voice inside.
So keep listening and learning,
And continue on your journey,
Following the One who is the Way.
He's the only road you need to take.

Wherever you are,
Wherever you're going,
God is right there beside you
Seeing and knowing.
Wherever you go,
He already knows
What lies ahead and what's behind.
You'll always find He's never too far
From wherever you are.

WE'RE NOT GONNA BOW

Kenna Turner West

In the days of old, three men were told
To bow before another
But they were bold and faith took hold
They said "We won't bow to any other but the Lord"
They said "Our God is able, to deliver us somehow
But even if He doesn't we won't bow"

It was a test of faith, a trial by fire
In life or death but one desire
"Do what you will but know this now
No way, no how... we're not gonna bow"

The king with ire said "Make a fire
Hotter then it's ever been"
And as a reprimand at his command
The soldiers threw them in
But they weren't afraid
And when the king looked in he saw
The men no longer bound
He saw four men walking around

It was a test of faith, a trial by fire
In life or death but one desire
"Do what you will but know this now
No way, no how... we're not gonna bow"

Help me take my stand, let me do what's right
Let my faith be strong, and my walk upright
The heat is on and the flames are high....

It was a test of faith, a trial by fire
In life or death but one desire
"Do what you will but know this now
No way, no how... we're not gonna bow"

WORK OF GRACE

Dianne Wilkinson

Jesus, great Creator of earth and sea and sky
Flung the planets into space and made the sun to shine
The redwood trees and mountains high bespeak His majesty
But I'm more awed by what He did for me

Jesus did a work of grace in me
He made me clean and justified
Holy in my Father's eyes
Redeemed me through His death on Calvary
Jesus did a work of grace in me

When I was at my lowest ebb, I called His name in prayer
This great God of the universe was suddenly right there
He wrapped me in His loving arms and took my sin away
He reconciled me through a work of grace

Jesus did a work of grace in me
He made me clean and justified
Holy in my Father's eyes
Redeemed me through His death on Calvary
Jesus did a work of grace in me

HE CAME TO ME

 Squire Parsons

The gulf that separated me from Christ my Lord
It was so vast, the crossing I could never ford
From where I was to His demands it seemed so far
I cried, “Dear Lord, I cannot come to where you are.”

He came to me; He came to me
When I could not come to where He was
He came to me
That’s why He died on Calvary
When I could not come to where He was
He came to me

He came to me when I was bound in chains of my sin
Oh, He came to me when I possessed no hope within
He picked me up and drew me gently to His side
Where today in His sweet love I now abide

He came to me; He came to me
When I could not come to where He was
He came to me
That’s why He died on Calvary
When I could not come to where He was
He came to me

HELP IS ON THE WAY

Matt Dibler

Satan comes to you trying to discourage
Speaking lies to you, saying, "There's no use.
You're tired and you're weary. You feel like giving up.
You've really had enough. Why don't you quit?"

You think of all he's said. You contemplate his offer.
You think of giving in and quitting the fight,
But there was someone praying, and when they had prayed through
God sent sweet peace to you.

The Spirit comes to you saying, "Child, don't you give in.
I can handle him. Just keep the faith.
And I will give you power. Ask and you'll receive
If only you'll believe God's holy Word."

Help is on the way.
Don't give up the fight.
Help is on the way,
And victory is in sight.
God's still on the throne,
And I can hear Him say,
"Child, keep holding on,
For help is on the way."
