SHOUTIN' TIME

Joseph Hart and Luther G. Presley

I will arise and go to Jesus
He will embrace me in His arms,
In the arms of Christ my Savior,
Oh, there are ten thousand charms

It's shoutin' time in heaven
A sinner once lost is found
It's shoutin' time in heaven
Salvation has been brought down,
No wonder the angels rejoice to know
My sins have been covered by the crimson flow
And now I’m feeling fine
I’m walking on the highway with my Lord
My name is written down in courts above
Its shoutin' time in heaven,
Oh yes, its shoutin' time.

Come ye weary, heavy laden
Lost and ruined by the fall
If you tarry till your better,
You will never come at all

It's shoutin' time in heaven
A sinner once lost is found
It's shoutin' time in heaven
Salvation has been brought down,
No wonder the angels rejoice to know
My sins have been covered by the crimson flow
And now I’m feeling fine
I’m walking on the highway with my Lord
My name is written down in courts above
Its shoutin' time in heaven,
Oh yes, its shoutin' time.

EACH STEP I TAKE

W. Elmo Mercer

Each step I take my Saviour goes before me,
And with His loving hand He leads the way,
And with each breath I whisper "I adore Thee;"
Oh, what joy to walk with Him each day.

Each step I take I know that He will guide me;
To higher ground He ever leads me on.
Until some day the last step will be taken.
Each step I take just leads me closer home.

At times I feel my faith begin to waver,
When up ahead I see a chasm wide.
It's then I turn and look up to my Saviour,
I am strong when He is by my side.


Each step I take I know that He will guide me;
To higher ground He ever leads me on.
Until some day the last step will be taken.
Each step I take just leads me closer home.

I trust in God, no matter come what may,
For life eternal in His hand,
He holds the key that opens up the way,
That will lead me to the promised land.

Each step I take I know that He will guide me;
To higher ground He ever leads me on.
Until some day the last step will be taken.
Each step I take just leads me closer home.

SEEKING FOR ME

Lanny Wolfe

From the splendor of heaven
To the world down below
From a manger to an old rugged tree
From the dawn of creation
Through the corridors of time
The Savior in love was seeking
Seeking for me
 
He was seeking for me
Jesus was seeking for me
Tho' I knew Him not
Still He loved me
And was seeking for me
He was seeking for me
Jesus was seeking for me
Tho' I knew Him not
Still He loved me
And was seeking for me

He was reaching for me
But I rejected His touch
Instead I reached for other things
I thought meant so much
Things of value in earth's market
I had sought all of them
But all the time I was seeking
I was seeking for Him

So I reached out to Jesus
Crying, "Lord, hear my plea.
For I want You to have all of me."
Then out of darkness
I saw His light of love
Giving me a brand new start
O, praise the Lord, Jesus found me
When I gave Him all of my heart

He was seeking for me
Jesus was seeking for me
Tho' I knew Him not
Still He loved me
And was seeking for me
He was seeking for me
Jesus was seeking for me
Tho' I knew Him not
Still He loved me
And was seeking for me

GET UP, GET READY

Curtis Hyler

All of heaven's getting ready
For the last and final call
Heaven's choir is all assembled,
An invitation to one and all
We're waiting with anticipation,
It can happen any day
All in the blink of an eye from the eastern sky
We're gonna hear our Savior say

Get up, get ready
We're getting ready to go
Get a move on time cause in a little while,
We'll be going home
I made up my mind, I'm not wasting time
The trumpet's about to blow
So get up, get ready,
We're getting ready to go

Now don't you worry about friends and loved ones
Who have gone before
When the Lord comes back with a shout,
He's gonna shake this earthly floor
The graves are gonna burst wide open
And the dead in Christ will rise
So get up, get ready,
We're getting ready to fly

Get up, get ready
We're getting ready to go
Get a move on time cause in a little while,
We'll be going home
I made up my mind, I'm not wasting time
The trumpet's about to blow
So get up, get ready,
We're getting ready to go

WHAT NEVER CHANGES

Author Unknown

I've seen things along the way,
I've seen some trouble in my short days.
Through it all, I have no fear.
See, I had a Friend who was always near.

And if the sun were to fall,
If the oceans were to dry.
If the mountains were to crumble,
I wouldn't bat an eye.
For I stand upon the Rock, the Rock of Ages.
No matter what may come,
What storm around me rages,
I stand upon what never changes.

Sometimes the way looks bleak,
Cause we're just human, and we are weak.
Take it from me, If the road gets rough
He'll be there to pick you up.

And if the sun were to fall,
If the oceans were to dry.
If the mountains were to crumble,
I wouldn't bat an eye.
For I stand upon the Rock, the Rock of Ages.
No matter what may come,
What storm around me rages,
I stand upon what never changes.

HOLDING TO MY SAVIOR'S HAND

Doug Riley

Paul and Silas locked up in a jailhouse
Never losing faith
'Cause they knew what God could do
Then the walls began to shake
And the prison doors swung open
For they never stopped holding on
To the Hand that brought them through

When the wind and rain
Blow through the clouds
Thunder and lightning dance about
When it seems more than I can stand
Gonna keep holding to my Savior’s hand
Though I can’t depend on my eyes to see
Through the many storms up ahead of me
I set my sights on the One who can
Gonna keep holding to my Savior’s hand

We are often faced with raging storms of life
Sorrows we can’t bear
And fears we cannot hide
Standing on the banks
Of a deep and rushing river
There’s a hand we can hold onto
That’ll get us to the other side
To the other side.

When the wind and rain
Blow through the clouds
Thunder and lightning dance about
When it seems more than I can stand
Gonna keep holding to my Savior’s hand
Though I can’t depend on my eyes to see
Through the many storms up ahead of me
I set my sights on the One who can
Gonna keep holding to my Savior’s hand

I WANT TO BE THAT MAN

He was awake before the sun with his Bible opened up
Seeking truth with every single page he turned
Anyone could see my daddy lived what he believed
With a gentle heart and passion for Jesus’ blood
I know we had our times we disagreed
But the longer I live it’s clear to me

I want to be that man
Who loves the Lord with all his heart
Just like the Word commands
Who takes a stand and leads his family
As he holds the Father’s hand
I want to be that man

Society would say there’s a new ideal today
Not what you give, it’s more about what you can gain
But I want to live a life that’s marked by sacrifice
Like the Savior who died to show us all the way
So I’ll take up my cross and trace His steps
Surrendering is how I serve Him best

I want to be that man
Who loves the Lord with all his heart
Just like the Word commands
Who takes a stand and leads his family
As he holds the Father’s hand
I want to be that man
Just like Peter, Paul, and all the saints of days gone by
Let me show that kind of faith to those who come behind

I want to be that man
Who loves the Lord with all his heart
Just like the Word commands
Who takes a stand and leads his family
As he holds the Father’s hand
I want to be that man

I’ll lead my family as I hold the Father’s hand
I want to be that man

GIVE ME YOUR EYES

Brandon Heath

Looked down from a broken sky
Traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high
Best seat in the house tonight
Touched down on the cold black top
Hold on for the sudden stop
Breath in the familiar shock
Of confusion and chaos
All those people going somewhere,
Why have I never cared?

Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
Ones that are far beyond my reach.
Give me your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see

Step out on a busy street
See a girl and our eyes meet
Does her best to smile at me
To hide what's underneath
There's a man just to her right
Black suit and a bright red tie
Too ashamed to tell his wife
He's out of work
He's buying time
All those people going somewhere
Why have I never cared?

Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
Ones that are far beyond my reach.
Give me your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see

I've been there a million times
A couple of million eyes
Just moving past me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong
Well I want a second glance
So give me a second chance
To see the way you see the people all along

Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
Ones that are far beyond my reach.
Give me your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see

MY HOUSE IS FULL (BUT MY FIELD IS EMPTY)

Lanny Wolfe

There is peace and contentment
In my Father's house today,
Lots of food on His table
And no one is turned away.
There is singing and laughter as the hours pass by,
But a hush calms the singing as the Father sadly cries,

My house is full, but my field is empty,
Who will go and work for Me today.
It seems my children all want to stay around my table,
But no one wants to work in my fields,
No one wants to work in my fields.

Push away from the table.
Look out through the windowpane,
Just beyond the house of plenty
Lies a field of golden grain.
And it's white unto harvest,
But the reapers, where are they?
In the house, can't the children hear the Father sadly say,

My house is full, but my field is empty,
Who will go and work for Me today.
It seems my children all want to stay around my table,
But no one wants to work in my fields,
No one wants to work in my fields.

FAITHFUL GOD

Laura Mixon Story

May the grace that sought my heart on that first day
Be the grace that binds my heart to stay
May the truth that opened up my eyes on that first time
Be the thoughts on my mind that never go away

For You are a lamp to my feet
A light to my path
You're the hand that's holding me

Faithful God, every promise kept
Every need You've met, Faithful God
All I am and all I'll ever be
Is all because You love faithfully
Faithful God

May the love that caught my heart to set it free
Be the love that others see in me
And may this hope that's reaches to the depths of human need
Be the song that I sing in joy and suffering
For you are the love that never leaves
The friend that won't deceive
You're the one sure thing

Faithful God, every promise kept
Every need You've met, Faithful God
All I am and all I'll ever be
Is all because You love faithfully
Faithful God

How deep, how wide the love
That pierced His side, the love
Redemption's mine, O Love that will not let me go

Faithful God, every promise kept
Every need You've met, Faithful God
All I am and all I'll ever be
Is all because You love faithfully
Faithful God

HE'S STILL WAITING BY THE WELL

Rodney Griffin 
 
JESUS' FEET WERE GROWING WEARY
AS HE JOURNEYED ON HIS WAY
SO HE RESTED AT A WELL SIDE
A COMFORT IN THE HEAT OF DAY
THERE HE WAITED FOR A WOMAN
BLACK WITH SIN AND BOUND FOR HELL
WHEN SHE ARRIVED, HE PLAINLY TOLD HER,
"WHAT YOU NEED'S NOT IN THE WELL"


HE'S STILL WAITING BY THE WELL
AND HE'S HOLDING OUT HIS HAND
IF YOU'LL DRINK THIS LIVING WATER
YOU WON'T HAVE TO THIRST AGAIN
HE'S BEEN WAITING BY THE WELL SIDE
KNOWING YOU'D BE PASSING BY 
SO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE MOMENT 
HE'S NOT GONE, 
HE'S STILL WAITING BY THE WELL


ARE YOU TIRED OF BEING THIRSTY
EVEN THOUGH YOU'VE HAD YOUR FILL
OF THE WATER THAT THE WORLD GIVES
DOES IT LEAVE YOU LONGING STILL
WELL, THERE'S GOOD NEWS UP AT THE WELL SIDE
A WOMAN'S VOICE RINGS LOUD AND CLEAR
SHE SAYS THIS MAN CHANGED HER FOREVER
AND IF YOU NEED HOPE, YOU CAN FIND IT HERE!
 
HE'S STILL WAITING BY THE WELL
AND HE'S HOLDING OUT HIS HAND
IF YOU'LL DRINK THIS LIVING WATER
YOU WON'T HAVE TO THIRST AGAIN
HE'S BEEN WAITING BY THE WELL SIDE
KNOWING YOU'D BE PASSING BY 
SO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE MOMENT 
HE'S NOT GONE, 
HE'S STILL WAITING BY THE WELL

HE LOVES ME

George Amon Webster

Why did He go to Calvary?
Why was His life's blood shed for me?
Why did He suffer as no man has ever done?
There’s just one reason–I am the one

He loves me, He loves me
Jesus loves me
He loves me, He loves me
Jesus loves me

When I’m sad, He loves me
Even when I’m bad, He loves
When it seems no one cares for me
I talk to Jesus, He loves me

He loves me, He loves me
Jesus loves me
He loves me, He loves me
Jesus loves me

STILL FEELIN' FINE

Mosie Lister 

Once upon a time I was feelin’ mighty fine
And I said it in a happy song
I said it ‘cause it told just how I felt
And my friends started singing along
If you ask me if I’m still feelin’ fine right now
I can answer with an all time "YES"
I can tell you how I feel; there’s never any need to guess

Well, I’m still feelin’ fine after all this time
I’m feelin’ mighty fine today
Every day I’m climbing just a little bit higher
Walkin’ up the King’s Highway
I still want to go where the milk and honey flow
And I’m not gonna change my mind
Happy on my journey and I’m still feelin’ mighty fine.

Wake up in the morning. Thinkin’ ‘bout the journey
 Goin’ to the promised land
Thinkin’ ‘bout the songs we used to sing
And I sing them all over again
God has never changed and my song remains
And Heaven’s still on my mind
I know where I’m going and I’m still feelin’ mighty fine.

Well, I’m still feelin’ fine after all this time
I’m feelin’ mighty fine today
Every day I’m climbing just a little bit higher
Walkin’ up the King’s Highway
I still want to go where the milk and honey flow
And I’m not gonna change my mind
Happy on my journey and I’m still feelin’ mighty fine.

YOU ARE MY KING

Billy James Foote

I'm forgiven because You were forsaken
I'm accepted; You were condemned
I'm alive and well; Your spirit is within me
Because You died and rose again.

Amazing love, how can it be?
That you, my King. would die for me
Amazing love, I know it's true
It's my joy to honor You.
In all I do, I honor You.


I'm forgiven because You were forsaken

Amazing love, how can it be?
That you, my King. would die for me
Amazing love, I know it's true
It's my joy to honor You.
In all I do, I honor You.

I'M ABIDING IN JESUS

Squire Parsons

When the old devil comes snooping around,
Trying to get you down,
When he tries to take your smile away,
And turn it into a frown;
Turn around and tell him this, "I've had enough,"
And give him a spiritual boot.
He may have forgotten you're still in the Begotten,
So you'd better remember this truth.

I'm abiding in Jesus, He abides in me,
Though the world may not understand this mystery;
He is in heaven, I am on earth,
He's in me, I'm in Him and since my new birth,
I'm abiding in Jesus, He abides in me.

Perhaps you think the work to which you have been called
Is too much for you to do,
Remember you are more than conquerors
Through Christ who lives in you;
Do like little David, take prayerful aim,
Give it your very best shot,
When the battle is ended you'll be glad you depended
On He whom the victory brought.

I'm abiding in Jesus, He abides in me,
Though the world may not understand this mystery;
He is in heaven, I am on earth,
He's in me, I'm in Him and since my new birth,
I'm abiding in Jesus, He abides in me.
