A GREAT JOY

Babbie Mason

My heart rejoices, my soul is glad
Christ, the Messiah has come at last;
The power of sin He has thus destroyed,
He brings to us everlasting joy!

A great joy
Lift your voices and praises sing
A great joy
Allelulia to Christ the King
He reigns with us forevermore
Hallelujah! He is a great joy!

Wonderful, Counselor, Prince of Peace,
Give of life, it will never cease;
The healing of nations is in His hand,
Forgiveness forever for every man.

A great joy
Lift your voices and praises sing
A great joy
Allelulia to Christ the King
He reigns with us forevermore
Hallelujah! He is a great joy!

Worship Him, the Lamb of Glory,
For He shall save us from our sin.

Alpha, Omega, the first and last,
God of the present and ages past
Has come to redeem us--imagine this!
O praise His name, what a joy He is!

A great joy
Lift your voices and praises sing
A great joy
Allelulia to Christ the King
He reigns with us forevermore
Hallelujah! He is a great joy!

CENTER OF IT

Chris August and Ben Glover

Some days, I'm feelin' like I
Can't win, can't get it right and
Don't matter how hard I try,
Today is not my day
When it feels like I'm going crazy,
And it looks like nothing's changing,
Come sun, come rainy day,
You are still the same

In the dark, in the light,
In the morning and night
In the good, in the hurt,
In the places I hide
When I rise, when I fall,
You'll be there through it all
At the start, at the end,
In the center of, the center of it

Some nights, I lay awake and I
Can't push these thoughts away
I'm worried where I'm gonna go,
Where I'm gonna be, are You gonna
Be there for me?
When it feels like the doors are closin',
Gotta trust that you're doin' somethin'
Come sun, come rainy day,
You are all I need

In the dark, in the light,
In the morning and night
In the good, in the hurt,
In the places I hide
When I rise, when I fall,
You'll be there through it all
At the start, at the end,
In the center of, the center of it

There will be days I will forget
Everything you've done for me
But when I go back there again,
I'm reminded...

In the dark, in the light,
In the morning and night
In the good, in the hurt,
In the places I hide
When I rise, when I fall,
You'll be there through it all
At the start, at the end,
In the center of, the center of it

Yeah, yeah Oh, the center of it all
Ooohhh, the center of it all
In the loss, in the win,
In the beauty and the sin,
At the start, at the end,
In the center of, the center of it

I SEE GRACE

Jim Brady, Barry Weeks, and Tony Wood

Here in these walls; here in these rows
There are those who regret the roads they once chose
More than the sorrow, more than the pain
There is joy for the way that
Through Christ they’ve been changed

There are lives freed from bondage of sins once concealed
There are bodies and minds, spirits now healed
Those who found freedom and shook off the chains
From the long years of guilt, anger, and shame

I see grace; I see grace
In every life; on every face
Of the faithful who gather each week in this place
I see grace

There are those in this life who’ve been dealt a poor hand
They’ve overcome and by God’s strength they stand
Those who have come through unbearable loss
Not defined by the past but defined by the cross

I see grace; I see grace
In every life; on every face
Of the faithful who gather each week in this place
I see grace

Story after story, one common theme
God’s power and glory in those He’s redeemed
Such tender mercy time after time
So many ways in this story that’s mine
I see grace

Grace; I see grace
In every life; on every face
Of the faithful who gather each week in this place
I see grace

HE'LL BE THERE

Mark D.R. Dibler

When I think of how You came
In a manger far, far away
And how You took my place
And that You bore my shame
Now when I call upon Your name

You are there
Yes, You are there
Even when the storms of life are raging
You are there
Even when I feel like giving up
You are there

Listen to this rhyme
This could be your last time
To get on your knees and pray
And then you will hear Him say,

I'll be there
Yes, I'll be there
Even when the storms of life are raging
I'll be there
Even when you feel like giving up
I'll be there

Now if you never have any problems
This song is not for you
But if you have a struggle every once in a while
Then you can go on with a smile

'Cause He'll be there
Yes, He'll be there
Even when the storms of life are raging
He'll be there
Even when you feel like giving up
Even when you've had enough
Even when life seems so tough
He'll be there

THERE IS NOTHING

Laura Story

Lord, I come before You
To honor and adore You
For who You are and all that You have done
Lord, I am not worthy
My heart is dark and dirty
Still somehow You bid for me to come

So clothe me in humility
Remind me, that I come before a King

And there is nothing
There is nothing
More precious, more worthy
May I gaze deeper
May I stay longer
May I press onward to know You, Lord

May our time be sweeter
May I be a keeper
Of the promises I make to You in song
Lord, may I remember these moments of surrender
And live my life this way from this day on

So clothe me in humility
Remind me, that I come before a King

And there is nothing
There is nothing
More precious, more worthy
May I gaze deeper
May I stay longer
May I press onward to know You Lord

WAITING IN THE WATER

Rebecca Isaacs Bowman, Sonya Isaacs, and Jimmy Yeary

A helpless man blind from birth
The only One who saw his worth
Didn't pass him by; He heard his cry
He rubbed his eyes with a handful of clay
Then He said, "Go and wash in the pool today."
And the blind man knew that's what he had to do
You know along the way he couldn't help but trip and fall
Each time he got back up again I wonder if he thought. . .

Every step I take
Is a step of faith
When I can't see what's in front of me
I'll walk on and just believe
He hears my prayer
And when I get there
The miracle promised by my Father
Is waiting in the water

I've walked in darkness, I won't lie
Just like that blind man sometimes I've
Felt all alone, like all hope was gone
I know that His Word is true
And no matter what I'm going through
He promised me that He would never leave
I know along the way I may stumble and I may fall
But I'll make it to the water, even if I have have to crawl

Every step I take
Is a step of faith
When I can't see what's in front of me
I'll walk on and just believe
He hears my prayer
And when I get there
The miracle promised by my Father
Is waiting in the water

I know He knows where I am
And somehow this is in His plan
So until my healing comes
I'll keep pressing on

Every step I take
Is a step of faith
When I can't see what's in front of me
I'll walk on and just believe
He hears my prayer
And when I get there
The miracle promised by my Father
Is waiting in the water

I'll Do the Miracle

Rodney Griffin

I chose you before you knew who I was;
I heard you crying down in Egypt's land.
You are my people, I am your God,
A covenant we cannot comprehend.
I'm gonna take you on a journey,
We're gonna walk across the sea
Children, don't you worry,
Let Me set your mind at ease.

You do what's possible, You do the praise;
I'll do the miracle, I'll make a way.
You put your trust in Me; you keep the faith;
Then when you can't go on,
That's when I'll do the miracle.

We are His children; He is our God,
He saved us from the wicked world of sin.
So why do we worry when it all falls apart?
When the stormy tides of life come crashing in.
We have just one purpose,
That's to trust with all our heart
Let us stand back with wonder
As we watch the waters part.

And He'll say. . .
You do what's possible, You do the praise;
I'll do the miracle, I'll make a way.
You put your trust in Me; you keep the faith;
Then when you can't go on,
That's when I'll do the miracle.

GOD WANTS TO HEAR YOU SING

Rodney Griffin

Their chains were fastened tight down at the jail that night,
Still Paul and Silas would not be dismayed.
They said, "It's time to lift our voice, sing praises to the Lord.
Let's prove that we will trust Him come what may."

God wants to hear you sing when the waves are crashing 'round you,
When the fiery darts surround you, when despair is all you see.
God wants to hear your voice when the wisest man has spoken
And says, "Your circumstance is as hopeless as can be."
That's when God wants to hear you sing.

He loves to hear our praise on our cheerful days,
When the pleasant times outweigh the bad by far.
But when suffering comes along, and we still sing Him songs,
That is when we bless the Father's heart.

God wants to hear you sing when the waves are crashing 'round you,
When the fiery darts surround you, when despair is all you see.
God wants to hear your voice when the wisest man has spoken
And says, "You circumstance is as hopeless as can be."
That's when God wants to hear you sing.

AN EVENING PRAYER

Charles H. Gabriel

If I have wounded any soul today,
If I have caused one foot to go astray,
If I have walked in my own willful way,
Dear Lord, forgive!

If I have uttered idle words or vain,
If I have turned aside from want or pain,
Lest I offend some other through the strain,
Dear Lord, forgive!

If I have been perverse or hard or cold,
If I have longed for shelter in Thy fold,
When Thou hast given me some fort to hold,
Dear Lord, forgive!

Forgive the sins I have confessed to Thee;
Forgive the secret sins I do not see;
O guide me, love me and my keeper be,
Dear Lord, forgive!

GIVE ME THE MOUNTAIN

Ann Ballard

So many roads on my journey; I never know what lies ahead,
Many times I stumble; that's when I feel my Father's hand
And when I come to a mountain, He says, "Child, I've made you strong.
You can take this mountain. We'll climb together; it won't take long."

Give me that mountain; I'm not afraid to climb
He will guide my footsteps and be my safety line
So every day of my journey, this will be my cry
I can take this mountain, for He'll be with me every time.

I'm not alone on my journey; I know that others walk this road
Valleys lie before you; these are only stepping stones
And when you come to that mountain, His love will keep you strong
You can take that mountain. You'll climb together; it won't take long.

Give me that mountain; I'm not afraid to climb
He will guide my footsteps and be my safety line
So every day of my journey, this will be my cry
I can take this mountain, for He'll be with me every time.

ALL THE WAY

Rodney Griffin

God searched for a limit to His love
What should He keep and what would He give up?
To pay sin's awful price for such a worthless one as I
To rescue me just how far would He go?

All the way, He came all the way for me
All the way from Heaven's throne to Calvary
Leaving me just one little step to take
If I believe, then He will take me all the way

I think about that city He's prepared
When I arrive I'll know who placed me there
For my efforts fall so short of the glory of the Lord
He knew they would, so He came all the way

All the way, He came all the way for me
All the way from Heaven's throne to Calvary
Leaving me just one little step to take
If I believe, then He will take me

WILLING SERVANTS

Author Unknown

He that would be greatest
Must become the least
We who are stronger
Must hold up the weak
We must serve with humility
Before we wear a crown of royalty

Our Lord washed the feet of man,
Then said, "Do the same"
And when we do we're lifting up His name

Willing servants
That's what we must become
Willing servants
Just like the Father's Son
He taught us by example
To give unselfishly
Willing servants we must be

There's no road to glory
But only through His cross
Dying to our own desires
Self-ambitions lost
Break us, Father, just like broken bread
So lots of hungry people can be fed
Let us be like vessels
Pouring out to those in need
And when we do, our Father will be pleased

Willing servants
That's what we must become
Willing servants
Just like the Father's Son
He taught us by example
To give unselfishly
Willing servants we must be

THE UPSIDE OF DOWN

Chris August and Ian Eskelin

The downside of being up is my inside is empty of
The one thing my heart truly needs
When I feel invincible a million miles from miserable
It's always all about me

I don't know why I don't love You like I should, like You would
Through bad and good, oh

Funny how we figure out where happiness is found
In the midst of this sadness I'm closer to You now
And that’s the upside of down, the upside of down
It’s all switched around, I lost and I found
The upside of down

You are more in my less, You are strength in my weakness
I'll never go back again
And then Your sunshine ends the rain and I return to my old ways
Why am I a fair weather friend?

I wanna be the one to love You like I should, like You would
Through the bad and good, oh

Funny how we figure out where happiness is found
In the midst of this sadness I'm closer to You now
That’s the upside of tragedies knowing
You're holding my heart always, always
I may be down but I'm finding there's joy in the pain, in the pain

Funny how we figure out where happiness is found
In the midst of this sadness I'm closer to You now
And that’s the upside of down, the upside of down
It’s all switched around, I lost and I found
The upside of down

HE CALMS ME

Randy Simpson

Troubled waters came my way angry storms drew near,
I prayed for God to speak a word to make them disappear;
It seems the waves would not obey the Master's call for peace,
Then He spoke into my soul, reminded me he had control,
And said this time His words were meant for me.

Sometimes He calms the storm, sometimes He calms me,
Sometimes the storm rages on, but I feel the sweetest peace;
It's such a joy to know that my Lord knows just what I need,
Sometimes He calms the storm, sometimes He calms me.

Circumstance may overtake and bring me to my knees,
 But when I feel I cannot cope with this life's troubled seas;
 I call on Him whose voice can still much greater storms than these,
His words bring peace into my soul when He says, "Child, I'm in control,"
And with one touch, He calms the storms in me.

Sometimes He calms the storm, sometimes He calms me,
Sometimes the storm rages on, but I feel the sweetest peace;
It's such a joy to know that my Lord knows just what I need,
Sometimes He calms the storm, sometimes He calms me.

NEVER TOO LATE

Tim Rushlow, Tony Wood and Ian Eskelin

I see you staring at the sky,
All of your regrets just running down your face,
You think you finally crossed the line,
Feel you sealed your fate

It's never too late, to call on Him
Whatever you've done, wherever you've been,
All your mistakes are covered by grace,
And as long as there's a breath left to take
It's never too late

It's hard to hide the pain of life,
It's a losing game that you have played too long,
You've listened to the voice of pride,
It says you're too far gone, but believe me you're wrong

It's never too late, to call on Him
Whatever you've done, wherever you've been,
All your mistakes are covered by grace,
And as long as there's a breath left to take
It's never too late

To all who may be listening, it's never too late,
To all who may be lost, there is peace, 
There is freedom and forgiveness,
Waiting at the cross, waiting at the cross.

It's never too late, to cry out to Him.
Whatever you've done, wherever you've been,
All your mistakes are covered by grace,
And as long as there's a breath left to take
It's never too late

LAMB OF GOD

Mike Donehey and Brendon Shirley

King of all the earth and every age
All creation waits for You
And trembles at Your name
Surrounded on a throne of endless praise
Fire and lightning flash from the glory of Your face
And I sing to You

You are Holy
You are worthy
You are Holy
You’re the lamb of God
You are Holy
You are worthy
You are Holy
You’re the lamb of God

How do I dare approach this Holy One
The One who was and is, was and is to come
Robed in righteousness and mystery
We have only just begun, just begun to see
So I come broken through
The blood of Your Son and I kneel before You

You are Holy
You are worthy
You are Holy
You’re the lamb of God
You are Holy
You are worthy
You are Holy
You’re the lamb of God

Blessing and honor and glory and power
To Him who sits on the throne
Blessing and honor and glory and power
Forever to our God alone

You are Holy
You are worthy
You are Holy
You’re the lamb of God
You are Holy
You are worthy
You are Holy
You’re the lamb of God
