I CANNOT TELL IT ALL

Kevon Carter

God's Been So Good To Me
I Can Not
Can Not Tell It All
He's Opened Doors For Me
I Can Not
Can Not Tell It All

He's Made A Way For Me
I Can Not
Can Not Tell It All
He Supplies My Every Need
I Can Not
Can Not Tell It All

Loosed My Shackles
Set Me Free
You Don't Know Like I Know
What He's Done For Me
I Can Not Tell It All
I Can Not Tell It All

Picked Me Up, Turned Me Around
I Can Not Tell It All
Placed My Feet On Solid Ground
I Can Not Tell It All

Loosed My Shackles
Set Me Free
You Don't Know Like I Know
What He's Done For Me
I Can Not Tell It All
I Can Not Tell It All

I THIRST

Beverly Lowry

One day I came to Him, I was so thirsty.
I asked for water, my throat was so dry.
He gave me water that I had never dreamed of.
But for this water, my Lord had to die.

He said, "I thirst" yet he made the river.
He said, "I thirst" yet he made the sea.
"I thirst," said the King of the ages.
In His great thirst, He brought water to me.

Now there’s a river that flows as clear as crystal.
It comes from God's throne above!
And like a river, it wells up inside me,
Bringing mercy and life giving love.

He said, "I thirst" yet he made the river.
He said, "I thirst" yet he made the sea.
"I thirst," said the King of the ages.
In His great thirst, He brought water to me.

Cool water...

WHAT WILL YOU CHOOSE?

Chris Binion and Hope Glaze

A wealthy young man made his way to Jesus
His mind filled with questions of things he'd like to ask
When the moment arrived and he was close enough to hear Him
He seized the opportunity for answers at last
They weren't what he hoped for because he found his treasures far more
Precious to him than he had ever known
When he walked away from Jesus, his heart was in pieces
As he realized all he had held he could never let go.

Yesterday's gone
Tomorrow's not promised
So what will you do with Jesus today?
This is your time
This is your moment
Will you turn to Him or turn away?
What will you choose today?

Centuries have past, and the world is ever-changing
The things that you're now facing are different than before
From the pressures of life to the joy in every moment
You try to spend your life content but feel you're needing more
It always seems you're searching though you find you're never learning
But all you have to do is realize He's all you need.

Yesterday's gone
Tomorrow's not promised
So what will you do with Jesus today?
This is your time
This is your moment
Will you turn to Him or turn away?
What will you choose today?

LOOKING OUT FOR YOU

Gerald Crabb

There were times I know you thought
That it was a hopeless situation
You did every earthly thing that you could do
All the while you felt like giving up from you frustrations
But look at Who was looking out for you
He’s still walking down dusty roads
Calming storms and troubled souls
Restoring hope when hope was gone
Winning battles you could never win
Standing with you when you need a friend
Be not weary on the journey, child, for you can’t lose
Just look at who’s been looking out for you
At times the darkness settles in
And tries to steal your vision
You stumble as you try to make it through
But don’t forget the promises the child of God’s been given
Remember who’s been looking out for you

He’s still walking down dusty roads
Calming storms and troubled souls
Restoring hope when hope was gone
Winning battles you could never win
Standing with you when you need a friend
Be not weary on the journey, child, for you can’t lose
Just look at who’s been looking out for you


I don't really like this video, as it portrays this "superhero" figure to be the one the song is about, but it was the only video I could find, and I wanted you to be able to hear the song.  So, close your eyes, and enjoy the music.

WHEN GOD SAYS NO

Mark Dibler

Knock, the door will open
Ask and you'll receive
These are God's promises
And these promises I believe
But what if when my praying's done
And Your answer finally comes
And after I've prayed so
Father, you say, "No"

Not my will, but thine be done
Please help me carry on
I've got a race to run
Even though I'm hurting so
Please help me onward go
Your grace to others show
Lord, no matter what You do
I'll still serve You

People praise You for answers to their prayers
And for lifting all of their cares
And when they praise You for what You do
I will praise You too
But whether You say "yes" or "no"
I know You're still on the throne
And I will still love you so
Even when Your answer is "no"

Not my will, but thine be done
Please help me carry on
I've got a race to run
Even though I'm hurting so
Please help me onward go
Your grace to others show
Lord, no matter what You do
I'll still serve You

I BELIEVE

Roger Bennett

I believe that God made the universe in just the span of six days,
I believe that Noah built a mighty boat that floated safe on the waves;
I believe that Daniel slept his cares away on the floor of the lions' den,
I believe that the Word of God is sure and points our hearts to Him.

I believe, I believe,
From Genesis to Revelation, yes, Lord, I believe;
That Your word is sure, Your love is pure, Your grace I now receive,
The two words of my heart, Lord:  I believe.

I believe that Mary had a baby boy, but Joseph was not his dad,
I believe that Jesus lived a perfect life no one else ever has;
I believe that He died on a rugged cross to pay for all my sins,
I believe that early on the third day, my Savior rose again.

I believe, I believe,
From Genesis to Revelation, yes, Lord, I believe;
That Your word is sure, Your love is pure, Your grace I now receive,
The two words of my heart, Lord:  I believe.

SO WE COULD BECOME LIKE HIM

Garry R. Jones and Niles Borop

Pure spirit of perfection
Wrapped in an earthen vessel made of clay
All because of our rebellion
And the price our sin demanded us to pay
Holy God who loved us so
He gave a sacrifice of flesh and blood
He let his only Son become like us

So we could become like Him
Jesus took the form of man and became our sin
Calvary's death, God's holy sacrifice
Brought life where death had been
So we could become like Him

Jesus cried out, "It is finished"
And began the Father's awesome plan of grace
Fallen man, a new creation
Who will one day see the Father face-to-face
Risen Lord who lives and reigns
He made the way for all who place their trust
In the mercy that let him become like us

So we could become like Him
Jesus took the form of man and became our sin
Calvary's death, God's holy sacrifice
Brought life where death had been
So we could become like Him

BOLD AND UNASHAMED

David Jenkins & Amy Susan Foster

God hasn't given us a spirit of fear
It isn't happenstance that has us here
Called out, commissioned, committed and strong
Shoulder to shoulder, we're marching on

Bold and unashamed
We stand and proclaim
Jesus and His matchless name
In loss or in gain, we will remain
Bold and unashamed.

We know the enemy can't tear us down
We won't be shaken, we'll stand our ground
We are determined to defend our faith
On Jesus Christ, we stake our claim

Bold and unashamed
We stand and proclaim
Jesus and His matchless name
In loss or in gain, we will remain
Bold and unashamed.

NEVER GIVE UP ON ME

Josh Bates and Michael Boggs

Time after time, You’ve been left behind
Like the sun when it’s starting to rain
Time after time, You’ve been forgotten
Like a picture that’s faded with age
Time after time, You ran after me
When I was still running away

You never give up on me
No, You never give up on me
Though I’m weak, You are strong
You told me I still belong
No, you never, never give up on me

Time after time, I’ve used your grace
As a way to do what I please
I’ve taken for granted prayers that you answered
Never been all I could be
You are holding out your hands
And now I clearly see

You never give up on me
No, You never give up on me
Though I’m weak, You are strong
You told me I still belong
No, you never, never give up on me

You always erase all my mistakes
You lift me up when I'm down
Through all the ages, Your love never changes
You welcome me just as I am

You never give up on me
No, You never give up on me
Though I’m weak, You are strong
You told me I still belong
No, you never, never give up on me

I'll Fly Away

Albert E Brumley

Some bright morning when this life is o'er
I'll fly away
To that home on God's celestial shore
I'll fly away

When the shadows of this life have gone
I'll fly away
Like a bird from prison walls have flown
I'll fly away

I'll fly away, oh glory
I'll fly away (in the morning)
When I die hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away

Oh, how glad and happy when we meet
I'll fly away
No more cold iron shackles on my feet
I'll fly away

Just a few more weary days and then
I'll fly away
To a land where joys will never end
I'll fly away

I'll fly away, oh glory
I'll fly away (in the morning)
When I die hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away

FAVORITE SONG OF ALL

Dan Dean

He loves to hear the wind sing
As it whistles through the pines on mountain hills
And He loves to hear the raindrops
As they splash to the ground in a magic melody
He smiles in sweet approval
As the waves crash to the rocks in harmony
Creation joins in unity
To sing to Him majestic symphonies, but

His favorite song of all
Is the song of the redeemed
When lost sinners now made clean
Lift their voices loud and strong
When those purchased by His blood
Lift to Him a song of love
There's nothing more He'd rather hear
Nor so pleasing to His ear
As His favorite song of all

And He loves to hear the angels
As they sing" Holy, Holy is the Lamb"
Heaven's choirs in harmony
Lift up praises to the Great I Am
But He lifts His hands for silence
When the wicked, saved by grace, begin to sing
And a million angels listen
As the newborn soul sings, "I've been redeemed!"


His favorite song of all
Is the song of the redeemed
When lost sinners now made clean
Lift their voices loud and strong
When those purchased by His blood
Lift to Him a song of love
There's nothing more He'd rather hear
Nor so pleasing to His ear
As His favorite song of all


It's not just melodies and harmonies
That capture His attention
It's not just clever lines and phrases
That cause Him to stop and listen
But when any heart set free
Washed and bought by Calvary
Begins to sing


That's His favorite song of all
Yes, the song of the redeemed
When lost sinners now made clean
Lift their voices loud and strong
When those purchased by His blood
Lift to Him a song of love
There's nothing more He'd rather hear
Nor so pleasing to His ear
As His favorite song of all

BOTTOM OF THE BARREL

Author Unknown

The story is told by a prophet of old
About a woman who lost her will to go on
She began to prepare their last meal with despair
Feeling sorry for herself and her son
When suddenly without warning there appeared in her mourning
A prophet whose instructions changed her life
If she'd prepare his meal first, let her faith stand the worst
She'd experience a miracle just in time

When the barrel is empty, God sends an Elijah
When the oil's run dry, He's just started His plan
Just go to the door, throw open your cupboards
Stand back and let the miracle began
What once was dry now is overflowing
And the barrel is full once again

Now if you're like this lady and you've given up on life
I have some advice just for you
You see, our God is still in the miracle business
And He knows your situation is quite blue
When you feel your faith scrape the bottom of your barrel
And there seems no reason to press on
It's then God's storehouse of supply breaks open from on high
And your barrel's overflowing once again

When the barrel is empty, God sends an Elijah
When the oil's run dry, He's just started His plan
Just go to the door, throw open your cupboards
Stand back and let the miracle began
What once was dry now is overflowing
And the barrel is full once again

GO AND TELL SOMEBODY

Go and tell somebody what He's done for you
Go and tell somebody what the Lord can do
How He gave you victory, how He brought you through
Go and tell somebody what He's done for you

There once was a blind man, the Lord gave him sight.
He had to tell everybody; he couldn't keep it quiet.
For once He's touched you, you're never the same
You gotta tell somebody; you gotta praise His name

Go and tell somebody what He's done for you
Go and tell somebody what the Lord can do
How He gave you victory, how He brought you through
Go and tell somebody what He's done for you

Now there was a cripple sitting by the road
But when He met Jesus, he was then made whole
I can see him walking, then he starts to run
He had to tell somebody what the Lord had done.

Go and tell somebody what He's done for you
Go and tell somebody what the Lord can do
How He gave you victory, how He brought you through
Go and tell somebody what He's done for you

SLOW FADE

Mark Hall

Be careful little eyes what you see
It's the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings
Be careful little feet where you go
For it's the little feet behind you that are sure to follow

It's a slow fade when you give yourself away
It's a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
It's a slow fade, it's a slow fade

Be careful little ears what you hear
When flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near
Be careful little lips what you say
For empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray

It's a slow fade when you give yourself away
It's a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day

The journey from your mind to your hands
Is shorter than you're thinking
Be careful if you think you stand
You just might be sinking

It's a slow fade when you give yourself away
It's a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
Daddies never crumble in a day
Families never crumble in a day

Oh be careful little eyes what see
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
For the Father up above is looking down in love
Oh be careful little eyes what you see

I PLEDGE MY ALLEGIANCE

Gloria and Bill Gaither

In a midwestern town, children form a parade,
With the flag-bearer leading the way,
Farmers and teachers, the old and the young
Lift together their voices to say…

I pledge my allegiance to the grand old flag,
And the promise of hope from sea to sea.
Under God one nation, undivided we will stand,
Lift the banner of liberty.

It’s the final kickoff for the NFL
And the stadium is packed with screaming fans.
All the banners are flying, the color guards advance,
Like a wave, silence moves through the stands.

Where a child is hungry, where men have no homes,
Where the powerless are yearning to breathe free—
May we fight for justice ’til there’s justice for all
And become what God meant us to be.

I pledge my allegiance to the grand old flag,
And the promise of hope from sea to sea.
Under God one nation, undivided we will stand,
Lift the banner of liberty.

FEAR IS EASY, LOVE IS HARD

Turn on the T.V. for the evening news
They got plenty to fear and nothing to do
Another somebody who's gone too far
Makes you want to put up your guard
Fear is easy, love is hard

So we draw up another dividing line
We label each other and we choose a side
Peace could come at quite a cost
So we won't build a bridge across
Fear is easy, but love is hard

Fear will leave you hiding in the dark
But love will bring a light into your heart
So do not be afraid, do not be afraid

"I'm sorry, baby" is what he should've said
But she wouldn't listen even if he did
They'll die without forgiveness soon
But no one wants to make a move
When fear is easy and love is hard

Fear will leave you hiding in the dark
But love will bring a light into your heart
So do not be afraid, do not be afraid

It's hard to bring your heart to a world that can break it
To offer love to those you're afraid will forsake it
But a well-defended heart is always looking for a fight
In a lonely war against an endless night
But love can bring a light

Fear will leave you hiding in the dark
But love will bring a light into your heart
So do not be afraid

It comes down to a simple choice
Shouting devils or a still small voice
One is spreading fear and dread
Oh, but Love has always said
Do not be afraid
Do not be afraid

REMIND ME OF THE CROSS

Kenna Turner West & Jason Cox

I remember the moment
I can take you to the place
Every burden was lifted
Every sin was washed away
But as time passes by
Lord, if ever I fail
To remember the price that You paid

Remind me of the thorns
You wore as a crown
The stripes that You bore
And the blood flowing down
The nails and the weight of my sin
And should a day ever come when I forget
What real love costs
Remind me of the cross

When I think of Your mercy
How You love someone like me
I'm amazed by Your goodness
And it brings me to my knees
But if life takes its toll
And it's not well with my soul
Then, Lord, take me back to Calvary

Remind me of the thorns
You wore as a crown
The stripes that You bore
And the blood flowing down
The nails and the weight of my sin
And should a day ever come when I forget
What real love costs
Remind me of the cross

When the Son of Man
The Spotless Lamb
Suffered and died

Remind me of the thorns
You wore as a crown
The stripes that You bore
And the blood flowing down
The nails and the weight of my sin
And should a day ever come when I forget
What real love costs
Remind me of the cross

A VESSEL OF MERCY

Richard Kelley

Make me a vessel of mercy
Father, make me a vessel that’s true
Fill me with love and compassion and fashion
My heart to be a vessel worthy of You

Lord, I want to be all You want me to be
Your service is my desire
I so want to know you and in Your love grow
With heavenly pow’r
I yield my life to you; I’m willing to be used
Wherever You bid me I’ll go
So, Lord Jesus, daily I pray that You’ll break me
That Your love I might show

Make me a vessel of mercy
Father, make me a vessel that’s true
Fill me with love and compassion and fashion
My heart to be a vessel worthy of You
