NOTHING'S WORRYING ME

Prices are up, and the market is down
Nothing but bad news all around
But I’m as content as content can be
'Cause I’ve got Jesus, and nothing's worrying me

Some fear it’s the start of a steady decline
Maybe it is, oh, but I’m doing fine
'Cause trouble can’t trouble a heart that is free
I’ve got Jesus, and nothing's worrying me

So let the wind blow
Let the rain fall
I may get wet, but I won’t fret
I'll get through it all
God’s in control, and He’s got a plan
I am safe and secure for I’m saved and I’m sure
That He’ll never let go of my hand

So I’m gonna sing, and I’m gonna smile
I’m not afraid of a little old trial
'Cause I’m a believer, and I still believe
I’ve got Jesus, and nothing's worrying me

So let the wind blow
Let the rain fall
I may get wet, but I won’t fret
I'll get through it allGod’s in control, and He’s got a plan
I am safe and secure for I’m saved and I’m sure
That He’ll never let go of my hand

So I’m gonna sing, and I’m gonna smile
I’m not afraid of a little old trial
'Cause I’m a believer, and I still believe
I’ve got Jesus, and nothing's worrying me

ONLY GOD KNOWS

Sheldon Mencer

She will never see the beauty of a sunrise,
Nor pick a flower blowing in the wind;
She will never climb up to sit on Daddy's knee,
Never spend a summer day with her best friend,
She will never bake cookies with Mommy,
Never know what it's like to be sixteen,
Never share her love with that special someone,
Never have a family of her childhood dreams.

He will never celebrate his first birthday,
You'll never hear him call your name out loud,
He will never run across the grassy meadow,
Or will he be the little boy who makes you proud;
He will never go fishing with Daddy,
Nor have the joy of buying his first car;
He will never get to father his own family,
Nor hear his little boy wish upon a star.

Day by day, and one by one we're killing our future
By the thousands every day across the land.
Can you tell me what has happened to America?
Is there anyone who dares to make a stand?
We have the blood of little children on our hands.

 But in Heaven God is picking up the pieces,
Of the countless treasures we have thrown away,
While slowly He's re-shaping and re-molding,
Those precious, little, helpless, lumps of clay.
So lovingly, He holds them in his hand
Only God knows just what they could have been.

BY YOUR SIDE

Michael Donehey, Jason Ingram, Phillip Larue

Why are you striving these days?
Why are you trying to earn grace?
Why are you crying?
Let me lift up your face;
Just don't turn away.

Why are you looking for love?
Why are you still searching as if I'm not enough?
To where will you go child?
Tell me, where will you run?
To where will you run?

And I'll be by your side
Wherever you fall,
In the dead of night
Whenever you call.
And please don't fight;
These hands that are holding you.
My hands are holding you.

Look at these hands and my side;
They swallowed the grave on that night
When I drank the world's sin
So I could carry you in
And give you life.
I want to give you life.
And I'll be by your side
Wherever you fall,
In the dead of night
Whenever you call.
And please don't fight;
These hands that are holding you.
My hands are holding you.


Cause I, I love you
I want you to know
That I, I love you
I'll never let you go
And I'll be by your side
Wherever you fall,
In the dead of night
Whenever you call.
And please don't fight;
These hands that are holding you.
My hands are holding you.

STRONG TOWER

 Marc Byrd, Mark Lee, Hon Micah Sumrall and Aaron Sprinkle

When I wander through the desert
And I'm longing for my home
All my dreams have gone astray
When I'm stranded in the valley
And I'm tired and all alone
It seems like I've lost my way

I go running to your mountain
Where your mercy sets me free

You are my strong tower
Shelter over me
Beautiful and mighty
Everlasting King
You are my strong tower
Fortress when I'm weak
Your name is true and holy
And Your face is all I seek

In the middle of my darkness
In the midst of all my fear
You're my refuge and my hope
When the storm of life is raging
And the thunder's all I hear
You speak softly to my soul

You are my strong tower
Shelter over me
Beautiful and mighty
Everlasting King
You are my strong tower
Fortress when I'm weak
Your name is true and holy
And Your face is all I seek

WORD OF GOD SPEAK

Mercy Me
(I know they are the artists, but I think they are also the authors)



I'm finding myself at a loss for words
And the funny thing is it's okay
The last thing I need is to be heard
But to hear what You would say

Word of God speak
Would You pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You're in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness
Word of God speak

I'm finding myself in the midst of You
Beyond the music, beyond the noise
All that I need is to be with You
And in the quiet hear Your voice

Word of God speak
Would You pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You're in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness
Word of God speak

YOU ARE GOD ALONE

 Billy J. Foote and Cindy Foote

You're not a God created by human hands
You're not a God dependent on any mortal man
You're not a God in need of
Anything we can give
By Your plan, that's just the way it is

You are God alone, from before time began
You were on Your throne, You are God alone.
And right now, in the good times and bad
You are on Your throne, You are God alone.

You're the only God whose power none can contend
You're the only God whose name and
Praise will never end
You're the only God who's worthy
Of everything we can give
You are God, that's just the way it is

You are God alone, from before time began
You were on Your throne, You are God alone.
And right now, in the good times and bad
You are on Your throne, You are God alone.

You're unchangeable (Unchangeable)
Unshakable (Unshakable)
Unstoppable (Unstoppable)
That's who you are (That's who you are)

You are God alone, from before time began
You were on Your throne, You are God alone.
And right now, in the good times and bad
You are on Your throne, You are God alone.

I WANNA KNOW HOW IT FEELS

Karen Peck Gooch & John Darin Rowsey

My momma and daddy talked about going home
Since I was just a babe on their knees
They said that nothing compared
To what was waiting up there
How one day we would finally be free
Well, I've never seen it
But I keep on believing
It will be a place like I've never known
I keep my eyes on the sky 'cause my soul wants to fly
Lord, my heart is ready to go

I want to know how it feels
To make my way down the streets of gold
I want to know how it feels
To have a talk with the saints of old
I want to know what it's like
To rest my feet by the River of Life
I've heard of heaven, and I know that it's real
I want to know how it feels

Sometimes I get weary from this life that I live
It seems that peace is something I'll never find
I try to lighten my load when all that I've got to show
Is seven hundred things on my mind
Well, I'm seeing visions of a crystal clear river
Where sin's forgotten without a trace
More than I've ever dreamed
My eyes long to see
The look of love on my Savior's face

I want to know how it feels
To make my way down the streets of gold
I want to know how it feels
To have a talk with the saints of old
I want to know what it's like
To rest my feet by the River of Life
I've heard of heaven, and I know that it's real
I want to know how it feels

JUST STAND

Author Unknown

Lookin’ at the Red Sea – don’t know how we’ll make it
Pharaoh’s  army’s closer - how we gonna shake 'em?
Moses, where’s the God we’ve heard you talking about?
Moses goes before God – how you gonna help me?
All these people out here really wanna kill me
We’ve brought them out this far – how you gonna bring us out?

Just Stand
God is seeing everything coming your way
He will take the stumbling blocks, make them stepping stones of grace
Just Stand
Don’t turn around and go back the way you came
When your heart is full of fear don’t forget He knows your name
Just stand!  Just stand!

Standing on the banks now – all the people trembling
Moses, sure afraid, can he trust the God in heaven?
He raised his hands up high – stretched them over the sea
God moved ‘round behind them – gave them some protection
They went across on dry land where the water had been
The army tried to follow, but the water fell on them.

Just Stand
God is seeing everything coming your way
He will take the stumbling blocks, make them stepping stones of grace
Just Stand
Don’t turn around and go back the way you came
When your heart is full of fear don’t forget He knows your name
Just stand!  Just stand!

Stand Tall…wait on the Father
Stand Strong….He know’s your name
Just Stand….Just Stand….
When your heart is full of fear,
Don’t forget He knows your name

Just Stand
God is seeing everything coming your way
He will take the stumbling blocks, make them stepping stones of grace
Just Stand
Don’t turn around and go back the way you came
When your heart is full of fear don’t forget He knows your name
Just stand!  Just stand!

WE WILL SING

Ronny Hinson

There is a choir now being formed,
White-robed attire with harps, and tambourines and horns
From every nation listening for the trumpets cue,
The only thing they're waiting for is me and you.

Then we will sing, yes, we will sing,
While tiers of angels gently fold their wings,
Bells will ring, we will cast our crowns before our Lord and King,
When death has lost its sting, we will sing

We shed our tears from sad goodbyes
Joy disappears as we search for reasons why
But glad reunions, oh, what harmony will blend
Better now than ever, and the song will never end.

Then we will sing, yes, we will sing,
While tiers of angels gently fold their wings,
Bells will ring, we will cast our crowns before our Lord and King,
When death has lost its sting, we will sing

Not one voice is trembling, no one will miss a note
No other song resembling, for it's a song redemption wrote.

Then we will sing, yes, we will sing,
While tiers of angels gently fold their wings,
Bells will ring, we will cast our crowns before our Lord and King,
When death has lost its sting, we will sing

WHEN I SURVEY THE WONDROUS CROSS

Isaac Watts

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died;
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ, my God;
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to his blood.

See, from his head, his hands, his feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down.
Did e'er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were an offering far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
