THANK HIM FOR THE MIRACLE

Mosie Lister

Once because of my own thinking
I was lost and I was sinking, oh, so low
Living down in the darkness of my mind
Where the righteous do not go
Till the day I fully realized
That God could deliver me and more
Raise me up to higher heights and give me joy
I’d never had before

And I thank Him for the miracle
That brought me from the wrong to the right
The miracle that saved me that brought me
From the darkness to the light
And I thank Him for the never-ending song
Of joy I sing
And I thank Him for the miracle that made me
A Child of the King

In the darkness of my soul
I felt a longing just to trust in His embrace
And I said, “Lord can I love You,
Can I hope to ever look upon Your face?”
Then I took Him at His word
That said believe in Me and you will never fall
Believe in Me and you will be
As if you’d never strayed away at all

And I thank Him for the miracle
That brought me from the wrong to the right
The miracle that saved me that brought me
From the darkness to the light
And I thank Him for the never-ending song
Of joy I sing
And I thank Him for the miracle that made me
A Child of the King

I WANNA BE THE ONE

Rodney Griffin

Ten lonely lepers were crying
"Jesus, have mercy on me."
Ten lonely lepers were dying
"Master, come set us free."
Jesus reached out and healed them
Nine went on their way
But one returned to the Master
It seemed he had something to say

I want to be the one who came back to Jesus
With a humble heart and a thankful spirit
I want to be the one who walks the narrow way
Even though the crowd turns the other way
I want to thank the Lord for taking of His time
Give Him all the praise, unlike the other nine
Out of ten who felt His touch,
If only one returns His love,
I wanna be the one

Jesus has healed so many
Broken spirits down through the years
He's given hope to the weary
Joy in exchange for tears
Now is our turn to thank Him
Let us take the time
Like that lonely leper who praised Him
I don't want to be like the nine

I want to be the one who came back to Jesus
With a humble heart and a thankful spirit
I want to be the one who walks the narrow way
Even though the crowd turns the other way
I want to thank the Lord for taking of His time
Give Him all the praise, unlike the other nine
Out of ten who felt His touch,
If only one returns His love,
I wanna be the one

IN EVERYTHING GIVE THANKS

Sheri Easter and Aaron Wilburn

When you want sunshine to brighten up your day,
But you find the clouds rain on your parade;
Don't forget somewhere someone you may not know
Is thanking God for a rain to make the crops grow. 

In everything give thanks, with all your heart give praise,
For the Lord we serve will never let you down.
In everything give thanks, with all your heart believe
That the Lord can take a circumstance and turn it all around.

When troubles trouble you, and you think life's not fair,
When you need someone, and there's no one there;
Remember all the times that you feel alone
Are the times He'll use to make you strong

In everything give thanks, with all your heart give praise,
For the Lord we serve will never let you down.
In everything give thanks, with all your heart believe
That the Lord can take a circumstance and turn it all around.

BLESSINGS

Laura Story

We pray for blessings
We pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
All the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love us way too much to give us lesser things

Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

We pray for wisdom
Your voice to hear
And we cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
We doubt Your goodness, we doubt Your love
As if every promise from Your Word is not enough
All the while, You hear each desperate plea
And long that we'd have faith to believe

Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know You’re near
And what if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win
We know the pain reminds this heart
That this is not, this is not our home

Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
And what if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know You’re near
What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy
And what if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are Your mercies in disguise

HERE WITH ME

Jim Bryson, Nathan Cochran, Barry Graul, Peter Kipley, Bart Millard, Dan Mucklala, Brad Russell, Mike Scheuchzer and Robby Shaffer

I long for your embrace
Every single day
To meet you in this place
And see you face to face
Will you show me?
Reveal yourself to me
Because of your mercy
I fall down on my knees

And I can feel your presence here with me
Suddenly I'm lost within your beauty
Caught up in the wonder of your touch
Here in this moment I surrender to your love

You're everywhere I go
I am not alone
You call me as your own
To know you and be known
You are holy
And I fall down on my knees

I can feel your presence here with me
Suddenly I'm lost within your beauty
Caught up in the wonder of your touch
Here in this moment I surrender to your love

I surrender to your grace
I surrender to the one who took my place

I can feel your presence here with me
Suddenly I'm lost within your beauty
Caught up in the wonder of your touch
Here in this moment I surrender.

IT'S MY DESIRE


It’s my desire to live for Jesus,
It’s my desire to live for Him;
Though often I’ve failed and brought Him much shame,
It’s my desire to live for Him.

It’s my desire to help someone today,
Someone who might have failed to see the way;
I, too, was once so lost, but I found my way to God,
Now it’s my desire to live for Him.

If you could see where Jesus brought me from
To where I am today,
You would know the reason why I love Him so.
So you can take the world’s wealth and riches;
I don’t need earth’s fame.
It's my desire to live for Him.

JOY IN THE CAMP

Bill Gaither

For years I traveled down a long and lonely road,
Sorrow and pain my lot to bear,
But then I met the Christ Who took my heavy load,
And since then I hear singing in the air.

There’s joy in the camp, A sinner has come home,
There’s joy in the camp, Rejoicing ‘round the throne,
Singing and shouting The great redemption song;
Out of the darkness into the light,
Out of my blindness to jubilant sight,
Out of my sorrow to heaven so bright,
There’s joy, wondrous joy in the camp!

The angels in heaven are rejoicing ‘round the throne,
Filling the lofts with chords so grand;
They’re singing because of one lost sheep who just came home,
I know there must be joy in the camp.

There’s joy in the camp, A sinner has come home,
There’s joy in the camp, Rejoicing ‘round the throne,
Singing and shouting The great redemption song;
Out of the darkness into the light,
Out of my blindness to jubilant sight,
Out of my sorrow to heaven so bright,
There’s joy, wondrous joy in the camp!

HOLD ON

Phil Cross 
When there's no step left to take.
No moves left to make.
Oppressing fears, tormenting doubts, 
Prayer after prayer, still there is no way out.
And it seems like pain is all you gain.

Hold on, hold on.
Through every storm, hold on.
Even in the darkest night,
Walk by faith not sight.
Hold on, hold on.

First there is a Father of love, 
Holding peace like a dove.
In the midst of all your dark despair, 
With open arms He is waiting there.
Just holding you till your hurt is gone.

Hold on, hold on.
Through every storm, hold on.
Even in the darkest night,
Walk by faith not sight.
Hold on, hold on.

WHO AM I?

Mark Hall

Who am I that the Lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name,
Would care to feel my hurt?
Who am I that the Bright and Morning Star
Would choose to light the way
For my ever wandering heart?

Not because of who I am
But because of what You've done.
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You are.

I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow.
A wave tossed in the ocean.
A vapor in the wind.
Still You hear me when I'm calling.
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling.
And You've told me who I am.
I am Yours, I am Yours.

Who am I that the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love and watch me rise again?
Who am I that the voice that calmed the sea
Would call out through the rain
And calm the storm in me?

Not because of who I am
But because of what You've done.
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You are.

I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow.
A wave tossed in the ocean.
A vapor in the wind.
Still You hear me when I'm calling.
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling.
And You've told me who I am.
I am Yours.

I'VE COME TOO FAR TO LOOK BACK

Nancy Harmon

I've come too far to look back again
There is nothing behind me
All the treasures I used to love
Have all faded from view
There's a new day ahead for me
All my heartache is over
For I left it at Calvary
Where my new life began

I've come too far to look back
My feet have walked through the valley
I've climbed mountains, crossed rivers
Desert places I've known
But I'm nearing the home shore
The redeemed are rejoicing
Heaven's angels are singing
I've come too far to look back

Look around, there's no happiness
There's no reason for living
Life will give you a broken dream
Full of sorrow and fear
Turn around, don't look back again
Face the new day before you
Place your heartache in Jesus' hand
He can mend broken dreams

I've come too far to look back
My feet have walked through the valley
I've climbed mountains, crossed rivers
Desert places I've known
But I'm nearing the home shore
The redeemed are rejoicing
Heaven's angels are singing
I've come too far to look back

I WILL WAIT

Lindsey Minaker

Lord, I need you to take over
All the things that I can’t control
Lord, I wonder how long it takes
To find the rest and peace I’m needing.
‘Cause I don’t know how much longer I can lift this heavy load
But I know Your arms are strong enough to carry me

So I will wait upon you, Lord
I will wait at the foot of your throne
I will wait upon you, Lord
I will wait for you to restore my soul

Lord, your Word is everlasting
I take refuge in your Name
When it seems all hope has faded, and dark clouds surround
My heart will be found safe in your hands
‘Cause You, oh Lord, are so much stronger
Than this feeble heart of mine
So while I wait I praise you for Your victory!

So I will wait upon you, Lord
I will wait at the foot of your throne
I will wait upon you, Lord
I will wait for you to restore my soul

GOD MAKES NO MISTAKES

Steve Pearcy

Have you ever seen a mother cry when she lost her little boy,
Or a mom and dad stand broken for their son’s life has been destroyed?
Have you seen old age take those away who are special to our hearts?
Listen to me when I say, "God makes no mistakes."

God makes no mistakes.
He knows the path you take.
He brought you this far in life’s way.
He’ll never let you down.
God makes no mistakes.

Have you cried a river full of tears, with an aching, broken heart?
Have you prayed and prayed, but no answer came in an hour oh-so dark?
Weeping may endure the night, but joy will come at dawn.
Then, my friend, you too can say, "God makes no mistakes."

God makes no mistakes.
He knows the path you take.
He brought you this far in life’s way.
He’ll never let you down.
God makes no mistakes.

Eyes not seen, ears not heard what the Father has to give.
But until He calls us home, let me say to you. . .

That God makes no mistakes.
He knows the path you take.
He brought you this far in life’s way.
He’ll never let you down.
God makes no mistakes.

I KEEP PRAYING

Author Unknown

I'm in another valley, where I cannot see the sun.
My eyes find no more tears to cry,
And my heart just feels numb.
The longer this valley, the darker it feels,
With shadows all around me,
The Spirit bids me kneel.

I keep praying - when life seems so unfair.
I keep praying - because I know He answers prayer.
I keep praying - when the world around me falls,
I keep praying - for He is my all in all.
The only reason I can even stand...
Is I keep praying.

I'm trusting in God's promise, my heart is steadfast, Lord.
You said you'd never leave me, and I know you keep you Word.
Strengthen me with power, according to your might,
For endurance and patience, as I travel through this night.

I keep praying - when life seems so unfair.
I keep praying - because I know He answers prayer.
I keep praying - when the world around me falls,
I keep praying - for He is my all in all.
The only reason I can even stand...
The only reason I can even stand...
Is I keep praying, praying, praying...
I keep praying.
