BEAUTIFUL VALLEY

Marcia Henry

In this beautiful valley that He's put me in,
I'm learning to trust and draw strength from Him.
I'll not despise the lessons He gives,
For in this beautiful valley, I'm learning to live.

The shadows around me can't hide the Son,
Or hold back the dawning of a new day to come.
Walking beside me is Jesus, God's Son
And He'll ever be with me 'til the testing is done.

In this beautiful valley that He's put me in,
I'm learning to trust and draw strength from Him.
I'll not despise the lessons He gives,
For in this beautiful valley, I'm learning to live.

When there's a lesson for learning, He'll take you aside,
To walk in the valley close by your side.
Upon the mountain, sweet blessing He gives,
But down in the valley is where we learn to live.

In this beautiful valley that He's put me in,
I'm learning to trust and draw strength from Him.
I'll not despise the lessons He gives,
For in this beautiful valley, I'm learning to live.

I WON'T LOOK AT THE LIONS

Rodney Griffin

As I go a walking on the journey
I often am tempted as I go
To focus my attention on the worry
When I should be looking at the One who's in control
That's when I open up the Bible
And see where the men of God turned their eyes
When they were overcome by tribulation
They just kept looking toward the prize

Daniel did not look at the lions
Stephen did not look at the stones
David did not look at Goliath
Though Goliath looked so big and strong
Moses did not look at the Red Sea
Noah did not look at the flood
Daniel did not look at the lions
When he put his trust in God

So when a roaring lion comes against you
Well, don't let him distract you as you run
Just keep your eyes upon the Savior
He will guide you safely 'til your work on earth is done
Well, remember all the heroes of the Bible
Were just common folks who took the time to pray
When our eyes are fixed upon the Father
We'll never have a need to turn away

Daniel did not look at the lions
Stephen did not look at the stones
David did not look at Goliath
Though Goliath looked so big and strong
Moses did not look at the Red Sea
Noah did not look at the flood
Daniel did not look at the lions
When he put his trust in God

I won't look at the lions,
No, I won't look at the stones
I won't look at Goliath
Though Goliath looks so big and strong
I won't look at the Red Sea
I won't look at the flood
I won't look a the lions
When I put my trust in God

HE LIFTED ME

HE LIFTED ME  (HE LIFTED ME)
OUT OF THE LOWLY DEPTHS OF SIN
HE LIFTED ME  (HE LIFTED ME)
WITH A LOVE THAT KNOWS NO END
HE TOOK MY HAND  (HE TOOK MY HAND)
PULLED ME OUT OF THE SINKING SAND
GAVE NEW LIFE THAT NEVER ENDS
I'M SO GLAD THAT JESUS CAME AND LIFTED ME!

FIGHTING ALONE IN THE BATTLE
STRUGGLING THROUGH EACH DAY
SEARCHING FOR MEANS OF SURVIVAL
BUT NONE WAS ON THE WAY
THEN THE MERCIFUL HAND OF JESUS
CAME BECKONING FROM ABOVE
AND THE MOMENT THAT I TRUSTED HIM
HE FILLED ME WITH HIS LOVE

HE LIFTED ME  (HE LIFTED ME)
OUT OF THE LOWLY DEPTHS OF SIN
HE LIFTED ME  (HE LIFTED ME)
WITH A LOVE THAT KNOWS NO END
HE TOOK MY HAND  (HE TOOK MY HAND)
PULLED ME OUT OF THE SINKING SAND
GAVE NEW LIFE THAT NEVER ENDS
I'M SO GLAD THAT JESUS CAME AND LIFTED ME!

LOOKING BACK OVER THE WONDERS
I'VE SEEN ALONG THE WAY
I'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY HIS POWER
I'VE BEEN BLESSED IN MANY WAYS
BUT NOTHING WILL EVER COMPARE TO
THE BLESSING I RECEIVED
THAT DAY MY NAME WAS ADDED TO
THE LIST OF THE REDEEMED

HE LIFTED ME  (HE LIFTED ME)
OUT OF THE LOWLY DEPTHS OF SIN
HE LIFTED ME  (HE LIFTED ME)
WITH A LOVE THAT KNOWS NO END
HE TOOK MY HAND  (HE TOOK MY HAND)
PULLED ME OUT OF THE SINKING SAND
GAVE NEW LIFE THAT NEVER ENDS
I'M SO GLAD THAT JESUS CAME AND LIFTED ME!

THROUGH THE FIRE

So many times I've questioned certain circumstances
Or things I could not understand
Many times in trials, weakness blurs my vision
And my frustration gets so out of hand
It's then I am reminded I've never been forsaken
I've never had to stand the test alone
As I look at all the victories
The spirit rises up in me
And it's through the fire my weakness is made strong

He never promised that the cross would not get heavy
And the hill would not be hard to climb
He never offered our victories without fighting
But He said help would always come in time
Just remember when your standing in the valley of decision
And the adversary says give in
Just hold on, our Lord will show up
And He will take you through the fire again

I know within myself that I would surely perish
But if I trust the hand of God, He'll shield the flames again, again

He never promised that the cross would not get heavy
And the hill would not be hard to climb
He never offered our victories without fighting
But He said help would always come in time
Just remember when your standing in the valley of decision
And the adversary says give in
Just hold on, our Lord will show up
And He will take you through the fire again

HE CALLED ME OUT

Mark Mathes

I'll never forget that wonderful day
When Jesus saved my soul,
I knelt down at an old-fashioned altar,
Oh, how the glory did roll!
I went to Him on bended knee
And left there with a shout,
I'll never forget that wonderful day
When Jesus called me out.

He called me out and I answered, "Savior!"
He spoke my name and I answered, "Lord!"
He filled my cup with an everlasting water;
I'll never forget that wonderful day 

When Jesus called me out.

They tell me the moment I prayed thru,
The angels marched around,
They lifted their wings and sang a glad song:
"A lost soul has been found!"
My name was written in the Book,
And it shall never fade.
I'll never forget that wonderful day,
The day that I was saved.

He called me out and I answered, "Savior!"
He spoke my name and I answered, "Lord!"
He filled my cup with an everlasting water;
I'll never forget that wonderful day 

When Jesus called me out.

AT YOUR FEET

Mark Hall and Jason Ingram

Here at Your feet, I lay my past down
My wanderings, all my mistakes down
And I am free
Here at Your feet, I lay this day down
Not in my strength, but in Yours I’ve found
All I need, You’re all I need

Jesus, Jesus, at Your feet
Oh, to dwell and never leave
Jesus, Jesus, at Your feet
There is nowhere else for me
There is nowhere else for me

Here at Your feet, I lay my future down
All of my dreams, I give to You now
And I find peace, I find peace
Here at Your feet, I lay my life down
For You my King, You’re all I want now
And my soul sings…

‘Cause I am free (here at Your feet)
All I need (is at Your feet)
I find peace
We’re at Your feet
We’re at Your feet
And I am free (here at Your feet)
All I need (is at Your feet)
I find peace

THIS LOVE IS MINE

Mosie Lister

A living flame forever burning
An endless road that has no turning
The love of God will never die
And it reaches to such as I

This love is mine I know it
He gave His Son to show it
He lifted me from depths of darkness
To walk in light divine
A love that has no ending
All other loves transcending
Forevermore with joy I’ll tell it
This love is mine

I can’t explain how God could save me
And I can’t explain the love He gave me
But still it’s real. It lives today,
And it never will pass away.

This love is mine I know it
He gave His Son to show it
He lifted me from depths of darkness
To walk in light divine
A love that has no ending
All other loves transcending
Forevermore with joy I’ll tell it
This love is mine

HOW GREAT THOU ART

Carl Gustaf Boberg and Stuart K. Hine

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,
And then proclaim: "My God, how great Thou art!"

Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

Thinkin' About Home

Author Unknown

"A penny for your thoughts," I said to the old man,
As he sat there on the park bench all alone.
With silver hair and wrinkled brow, eyes gleaming,
He smiled and said, "I'm just thinkin' about my home."

I sat down, and we shared some laughs together,
And the cinema of remembrance, it did roll.
We talked about life's gains and its losses,
But mostly, he just talked about his home.

He said, "I'm thinkin' about home,
Thinkin' about going home.
I'm dreaming 'bout leaving here,
Ready to be moving on.
It won't be long before the sun will set, and I'll be gone,
But until then, I'll be thinkin' about home."

I said, "Tell me, old man, where's your home and what's it like?"
He said, "Oh, ain't nothing 'round here that compares.
You see, a King had it built and gave the deed to me,
And all my family's already there.

And I'm thinkin' about home,
Thinkin' about going home.
I'm dreaming 'bout leaving here,
Ready to be moving on.
It won't be long before the sun will set, and I'll be gone,
But until then, I'll be thinkin' about home."

HE'S SENDING MIRACLES

Sandy Knight

MY DEAR LORD, I HAVE A NEED
IN MY HEART TODAY, YOU SEE
I NEED A MIRACLE. I NEED YOUR TOUCH
I HAVE NO OTHER FRIEND TO CALL ON
SO LORD, HEAR ME ONCE AGAIN
I NEED A MIRACLE FROM THINE ALMIGHTY HAND

HE’S SENDING MIRACLES DOWN MY WAY
HE’S SENDING BLESSINGS AND ANSWERS
ALONG TO GUIDE MY WAY
SO IF I CAN JUST BELIEVE
AND IF I CAN ONLY RECEIVE
I’LL GET A MIRACLE SENT DOWN TO ME

AND WHEN I FEEL THE END IS NEAR
I FEEL THE GRASP OF DOUBT AND FEAR
SEND ME A MIRACLE. SEND YOUR TOUCH
FOR THERE’S SUCH POWER IN YOUR HAND, LORD
AND JUST A TOUCH WILL DO
I NEED A MIRACLE TO TAKE ME THROUGH

HE’S SENDING MIRACLES DOWN MY WAY
HE’S SENDING BLESSINGS AND ANSWERS
ALONG TO GUIDE MY WAY
SO IF I CAN JUST BELIEVE
AND IF I CAN ONLY RECEIVE
I’LL GET A MIRACLE SENT DOWN TO ME

BREAD UPON THE WATER

Janny Grein and Bill Grein

Well, there are people who think they´re not receiving
Anything from God at all
Oh, they are shaken from their believing
When they don´t see results they quickly fall

Oh, but don´t you waver; keep on living
In the way God wants you to
Don´t get discouraged; keep on givin’
Soon it will come back to you

You gotta keep on casting your bread upon the water
Soon it´s gonna come back home on every wave
Keep on casting your bread upon the water
Soon it´s gonna come back home on every wave
Good measure pressed down, shaken together, running over
Soon it´s gonna come back home on every wave

Oh, keep on working for the kingdom
Instead of working for your needs
Keep on sharing the love of Jesus
You know growing comes from plantin’ seeds


You gotta keep on casting your bread upon the water
Soon it´s gonna come back home on every wave
Keep on casting your bread upon the water
Soon it´s gonna come back home on every wave
Good measure pressed down, shaken together, running over
Soon it´s gonna come back home on every wave

GOODBYE, WORLD, GOODBYE

 Mosie Lister

I told all my troubles “Goodbye”
Goodbye to each tear and each sigh
This world where I roam cannot be my home
I’m bound for that land in the sky
I walk and I talk with my Lord
I feast every day on His Word
Heaven is near and I can’t stay here
Goodbye, World, Goodbye

Now don’t you weep for me when I’m gone
‘Cause I won’t have to leave here alone
And when I hear that last trumpet sound
My feet won’t stay on the ground
Gonna rise with a shout, gonna fly
Gonna ride with my Lord through the sky
Heaven is near, and I can’t stay here
Goodbye, World, Goodbye

Well, I won’t have the blues anymore
When I step across to that shore
And I’ll never pine for I’ll leave behind
My heartaches and tears evermore
A day, maybe two then goodbye
Tomorrow I’ll rise up and fly
Heaven is near and I can’t stay here
Goodbye, World, Goodbye

Now don’t you weep for me when I’m gone
‘Cause I won’t have to leave here alone
And when I hear that last trumpet sound
My feet won’t stay on the ground
Gonna rise with a shout, gonna fly
Gonna ride with my Lord through the sky
Heaven is near, and I can’t stay here
Goodbye, World, Goodbye

DAYSTAR

Steve Richardson

Lily of the Valley, let your sweet aroma fill my life
Rose of Sharon, show me how to grow in beauty in God’s sight
Fairest of Ten Thousand, make me a reflection of your light
Daystar, shine down on me; let your love shine through me in the night.

Lead me, Lord, I’ll follow, anywhere you open up the door
Let your words speak to me, show me what I’ve never seen before
Lord, I long to be your witness; you can take what’s wrong and make it right
Daystar, shine down on me; let your love shine through me in the night.

Lord, I see your world that’s dying, wounded by the master of deceit
Groping in the darkness, haunted by the years of past defeat
But when I see you standing near me Lord, shining with compassion in your eyes
I pray Jesus shine down on me, let your love shine through me in the night.

Lead me, Lord, I’ll follow, anywhere you open up the door
Let your words speak to me, show me what I’ve never seen before
Lord, I long to be your witness; you can take what’s wrong and make it right
Daystar, shine down on me; let your love shine through me in the night.

JOY IN THE JOURNEY

Shauna Hord

So many highways and biways
That would lead me astray
But my mind's made up, I'll not give up
Gonna keep on the narrow way
I'll serve the Savior forever
And I'll make his praises known
For there is joy in this journey
To my Heavenly home.

There is joy in the journey
For the Lord is on our side
Joy in the journey
I've got Heaven on my mind
Now this road I travel
Will lead me safely on
There is joy in the journey
To my Heavenly home

I'm glad that Jesus leads us
And His Spirit is our guide
And it won't be long till we're singing songs
Over on the other side
No looking behind me, for I see
What is waiting down the road
There is joy in the journey
And I'll soon be going home

There is joy in the journey
For the Lord is on our side
Joy in the journey
I've got Heaven on my mind
Now this road I travel
Will lead me safely on
There is joy in the journey
To my Heavenly home
