GENTLE SHEPHERD

William & Gloria Gaither

Gentle Shepherd, come and lead us,
For we need You to help us find our way.
Gentle Shepherd, come and feed us,
For we need Your strength from day to day.
There's no other we can turn to
Who can help us face another day;
Gentle Shepherd, come and lead us,
For we need You to help us find our way.

IT PAYS TO PRAY

Rodney Griffin

Hand in hand at the altar
In tears of celebration
We'd never seen them smile like this before
She'd spent her life 'a prayin'
On bended knee 'a stayin'
And this morning he surrendered to the Lord
There's a message in their story
Only God can get the glory
When a child of His keeps knocking at the door

It pays to pray
It pays to call upon His name
It pays to pray
To see a miracle displayed
You'll forget the word, "impossible"
When you seek the Savior's face
You'll know He will make a way
It pays to pray

You're tempted to quit prayin'
You feel He's never listenin'
The time has come and you must make a choice
Do you stop believin'
Forget what you've been seekin'
Or do you resolve that Jesus hears your voice
He will hush the angel praises
Just to hear what you are sayin'
And at any moment now you will rejoice


It pays to pray
It pays to call upon His name
It pays to pray
To see a miracle displayed
You'll forget the word, "impossible"
When you seek the Savior's face
You'll know He will make a way
It pays to pray

Prayer is just as big as God is
Prayer is just as strong as God is strong
Prayer can reach as far as God can reach
Don't ever give up, just pray

TOO MUCH TO GAIN TO LOSE

Dottie Rambo

Too many miles behind me
Too many trials are through
Too many tears help me to remember
But there's too much to gain to lose

Too many sunsets lie behind the mountains
Too many rivers my feet have walked through
And there's too many treasures awaiting over yonder
And there's too much to gain to lose

I've crossed the hot burning desert
Struggling the right road to choose
Somewhere up ahead there's cool clear water
And defeat is one word I'll never use

Too many sunsets lie behind the mountains
Too many rivers my feet have walked through
And there's too many treasures awaiting over yonder
And there's too much to gain to lose

TRUTH IS MARCHING ON

Barry Weeks, Tony Wood and Jim Brady

Some say His birth was of a virgin,
Some think His miracles can be explained away
Some say that He was just a good man,
Even though He died, He wasn't really raised
Skeptics rise and speak their lies

Truth is marching on, truth is marching on
Down the corridors of time, invincible, divine
Until all that's false is finally gone
Truth is marching on

There will always be cynics and scoffers
Our faith has always had its noisy enemies
They may rise up but only for a moment
Yet we see evidence through the centuries
It's Jesus Christ, He's the Way, the Life

Truth is marching on, truth is marching on
Down the corridors of time, invincible, divine
Until all that's false is finally gone
Truth is marching on

IT IS WELL

Sonya Isaacs and Rebecca Isaacs Bowman

There lived a man and a woman
In a town called Shunem
They made a home for Elisha
And found favor in his eyes
So God sent them a miracle,
The only thing they longed for
Within the year they would hold a son
As Elisha prophesied

One day they ran from the field,
Brought the child to his mother
She held his head there on her knee
Until he died at noon that day
She didn't tell anyone,
She ran straight to the man of God
And if anybody asked her
She replied while on her way. . .

It is well! It is well!
There is peace in my despair
Knowing God will hear my prayer
And I will cling
To the promise that He brings
Even death will have no sting,
No power in hell
In His presence I will dwell
Where it is well.

Elisha stood by the bedside
Where she laid her boy when he died
He prayed a prayer upon him
And he breathed new life again
Friend, God doesn't ever change
And if you'll have that woman's faith
He'll send you your miracle
And until then you can say. . .

It is well! It is well!
There is peace in my despair
Knowing God will hear my prayer
And I will cling
To the promise that He brings
Even death will have no sting,
No power in hell
In His presence I will dwell
Where it is well.

LET IT GO

Jason Ingram, Bebo Norman and Mike Donehey

I've been holding on so tight
Look at these knuckles; they've gone white
From fighting for who I want to be
I'm just trying to find security

But you say let it go
You say let it go
You say life is waiting for the ones who lose control
You say You will be everything I need
You say if I lose my life it's then I'll find my soul
You say let it go

Well it's hard enough to hear
Harder still to move beyond this fear
We know there's nothing I can bring
So tell me what do you want from me?

You say let it go
You say let it go
You say life is waiting for the ones who lose control
You say You will be everything I need
You say if I lose my life it's then I'll find my soul
You say let it go

What do I love? What do I hate?
What will I lose? What will I gain?
How do I save my soul?
What if I bend? What if I break?
What will it cost? What will it take
For You to save my soul?

You say let it go
You say let it go
You say life is waiting for the ones who lose control
You say You will be everything I need
You say if I lose my life it's then I'll find my soul

AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE

Tim Sheppard

We stand here together as a family
We join hands together
Lifting praises to the Father above
For sending His Son

We’ve chosen together as a family
To serve Him forever
Knowing nothing else will matter in time
We've made up our minds

Through the heat of the day
We will join in the fight
‘Til He takes us away
‘Til our faith becomes sight
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord

Choose you this day
Tell me who will you serve
Let nothing stand in your way
Give the praise He deserves
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord

We’ll serve Him;  We’ll serve Him
We’ll serve Him for He is worthy
Serve Him;  We’ll serve Him
We’ll serve Him for He is worthy

Choose you this day
Tell me who will you serve
Let nothing stand in your way
Give the praise He deserves
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord

LORD, IT HURTS, BUT YOU'RE STILL GOD

Greg Day

Many times I have wondered why
I'm going through this place.
Is it something I've done wrong?
Lord, am I the one to blame?
You're the answer to my problems
Even though it still remains,
I've heard the darkest hour
Is just before the dawn.
Lord, it hurts, but you're still God.

I know that you are able
To remove this thorn from me.
By faith I know you'll make a way
Even when I cannot see.
You're my only hope in this world,
The One I lean upon.
Lord, it hurts, but you're still God

Lord, I'll trust in you with all my heart.
I won't try to understand
Why you've not taken away this burden;
I'll just leave it in your hands.
'Cause I know your time is not like mine.
I believe you have a plan.
Until then I'll do my best to be strong.
Lord, it hurts, but you're still God.

I know that you are able
To remove this thorn from me
By faith I know you'll make a way
Even when I cannot see
You're my only hope in this world,
The One I lean upon
Lord, it hurts, but you're still God.

So I will not be discouraged
Though the battle rages on
I know you won't forsake me, Lord.
This is where I belong.

I know that you are able
To remove this thorn from me
By faith I know you'll make a way
Even when I cannot see
You're my only hope in this world,
The One I lean upon
Lord, it hurts, but you're still God.

I LOVE YOU ANYWAY

Dana Rongione

A long time ago, before I met the Lord,
I thought I was safe from sin.
Since I went to church and my folks knew the Lord,
I was sure that would get me in.
I thought I could make it on my own,
And I said I didn't need Him.
Still, He smiled and said, “Child, I love you anyway.”
And He died for all my sin.

As He hung on the cross,
He looked into the future,
And He saw me;
Every time I would fall,
Every time I would fail,
Every time I'd push Him aside.
Still, He smiled and said, “Child, I love you anyway.”
Then He hung His head and died.

Now, I know the Lord, and He lives in my heart,
But sometimes I still let Him down.
I worry and fret, and I sometimes forget
To read His holy Word.
There are times I stumble down life's weary road,
And I take my eyes off of Him.
Still, He smiles and says, “Child, I love you anyway,
And I'll always forgive you again.”

As He hung on the cross,
He looked into the future,
And He saw me;
Every time I would fall,
Every time I would fail,
Every time I'd push Him aside.
Still, He smiled and said, “Child, I love you anyway.”
Then He hung His head and died.

IF IT TAKES A VALLEY

Joel Lindsey and Sue C. Smith 


There’s been times when I’ve believed Your approval
Means a life that’s free from pain.
Yet how many saints I know about have served You
Without any earthly gain.
In their suffering they discovered Your sufficiency
And maybe sacrifice is where Your sweetest blessings wait for me.

If it takes a valley to really know your grace
Or if it’s in the desert where I’ll meet you face to face
Then turn the path I’m traveling to some dark and lonely place
Cause if it takes a valley, then a valley’s what I’ll take.

Have I mentioned that I’m clinging to Your promise
That I’m safe within Your will
Have I told You how it feels to face the enemy
And know You are greater still
Guess I had to walk through danger, Lord, so You could show
The way You’d cover me with mercy and You’d never let me go.

If it takes a valley to really know your grace
Or if it’s in the desert where I’ll meet you face to face
Then turn the path I’m traveling to some dark and lonely place
Cause if it takes a valley, then a valley’s what I’ll take.

I’m not saying circumstances never cause me fear
I’m just believing there is a purpose and even when it isn’t clear

If it takes a valley to really know your grace
Or if it’s in the desert where I’ll meet you face to face
Then turn the path I’m traveling to some dark and lonely place
Cause if it takes a valley, then a valley’s what I’ll take.

WHY SHOULD I WORRY?

Rick Simpson

He's a Shelter in the storm when everything went wrong
A beckoning Hand that led me back home
A still, small Voice saying, "It's gonna be alright."
My Song of hope in my darkest night

Why should I worry? What should I fear
When I know that He is always near?
 Even when the weight of the world is closing in on me,
His eyes are always watching over me
So why should I worry?

He's a Sunrise in the morning after a night of tears
A Spirit moving to calm all my fears
A soft, gentle Touch just to help me be strong
The Wind in my sail to keep me going on

Why should I worry? What should I fear
When I know that He is always near?
 Even when the weight of the world is closing in on me,
His eyes are always watching over me
So why should I worry?

The sun has never refused to shine
The ocean has never run dry
The One who's in control of it all
Said all me needs He will supply

Why should I worry? What should I fear?
He is always near?
Even when the weight of the world is closing in on me,
His eyes are always watching over me
So why should I worry?

You're Not Alone

Squire Parsons

When your heart breaks from earthly sorrows,
You feel that you are all alone,
Tears fall as rain; your soul is anguished,
Faith now is tried; all hope seems gone

You’re not alone; Jesus is with you,
He said He’d always would abide,
Just speak His name; You’ll feel His presence,
You’re not alone; He’s by your side.

He sees your tears; He hears your crying,
He feels your pain and agony,
Cast all your burdens now upon Him,
His arms of grace will strengthen thee

You’re not alone; Jesus is with you,
He said He’d always would abide,
Just speak His name; You’ll feel His presence,
You’re not alone; He’s by your side.

And there’s room at the cross for you,
There’s room at the cross for you,
Just speak His name; You’ll feel His presence,
You’re not alone; He’s by your side.

LIKE I WISH I'D LIVED

Rodney Griffin

May I be so honest?
Could I share from my heart?
You see I’m so far from perfect
That today I bear the scars
There is no one here among us
Who doesn’t live without regrets
So may we use the pain behind us
To walk in victory up ahead

Lord, help me to live like I wish I’d lived in the past
May I stay in the way of the narrow and free of regret
And may I surrender whatever is holding me back
Lord, help me to live like I wish I’d lived in the past

Each day’s another journey
With choices I must make
There are two roads before me
But only one that I must take
So help me walk the path that’s holy
Help me choose what is right
May I leave a testimony
That is pleasing in Your sight

Lord, help me to live like I wish I’d lived in the past
May I stay in the way of the narrow and free of regret
And may I surrender whatever is holding me back
Lord, help me to live like I wish I’d lived in the past

WHEN GOD HAS ANOTHER PLAN

Amy Shellem and Daryl Williams

Forsaken by his brothers didn't fit the scene..
Being made a slave was not what Joseph dreamed...
The coat of many colors was stained with blood and lies
But from this divine appointment, a ruler would arise

When God has another plan - walk on and just say, "yes"
When God has another plan - be assured that He knows best
If all your dreams are shattered, rest in His sufficient grace
We don't have to understand - when God has another plan.

Alone and broken-hearted, questions fill your mind
Changes can be hard, but come by God's design,
But if you could see tomorrow, with a view from Heaven's throne,
Every unexpected struggle has led you closer home.

When God has another plan - walk on and just say, "yes"
When God has another plan - be assured that He knows best
If all your dreams are shattered, rest in His sufficient grace
We don't have to understand - when God has another plan.

If all your dreams are shattered, rest in His sufficient grace,
We don't have to understand - when God has another plan.

DREAM FOR YOU

Mark Hall and Matthew West

Hey, David, I hear you've been dreaming
About being a big time shepherd some day
You're gonna prove your brothers wrong
You're gonna sing your shepherd song
To the cattle on a thousand hills
But I've been thinking

I'm having trouble with a giant down the road
You're the one who's going to face him toe to toe
Wipe that grin right off his face
And whip this army into shape
I'm going to turn the nation back to Me
And David, you're right about one thing
Your little shepherd songs are going to make the whole world sing
And I'm gonna make you king

So come on, let Me dream, let Me dream for you
I am strong when you're weak and I'll carry you
So let go of your plan, be caught by My hand
I'll show you what I can do
When I dream for you
I have a dream for you

Hey Mary, I've heard you've been dreaming
Making plans for your big wedding day
You and Joseph are gonna be
The picture perfect family
Maybe a couple of kids down the road
But Ive been thinking

Even before time began
I had a picture perfect plan
Of how to save this broken world
Through the life of just one man
I'm gonna send my only Son
And Mary, you're the one
You were right about one thing
You're gonna have that family
And you're gonna raise a King

So come on, let Me dream, let Me dream for you
I am strong when you're weak and I'll carry you
So let go of your plan, be caught by My hand
I'll show you what I can do
When I dream for you
I have a dream for you

I'm stronger than you think I am
I'll take you farther than you think you can
You sing and call me Great I Am
So take your stand
My child, if you only knew
All the plans that I have for you
Just trust me, I will follow through
You can follow Me

So come on, let Me dream, let Me dream for you
I am strong when you're weak and I'll carry you
So let go of your plan, be caught by My hand
I'll show you what I can do
When I dream for you
I have a dream for you

HELP ME FIND IT

Ben McDonald, David Frey and Jason Ingram

I don’t know where to go from here
It all used to seem so clear
I’m finding I can’t do this on my own
I don’t know where to go from here
As long as I know that You are near
I’m done fighting
I’m finally letting go

I will trust in You
You’ve never failed before
I will trust in You

If there’s a road I should walk
Help me find it
If I need to be still
Give me peace for the moment
Whatever Your will
Whatever Your will
Can you help me find it
Can you help me find it

I’m giving You fear and You give faith
I giving you doubt
You give me grace
For every step I’ve never been alone
Even when it hurts, You’ll have Your way
Even in the valley I will say
With every breath
You’ve never let me go

I will wait for You
You’ve never failed before
I will wait for You

If there’s a road I should walk
Help me find it
If I need to be still
Give me peace for the moment
Whatever Your will
Whatever Your will
Can you help me find it
Can you help me find it

I lift my empty hands (come fill me up again)
Have Your way my King (I give my all to You)
I lift my eyes again (Was blind but now I see)
‘Cause You are all I need

If there’s a road I should walk
Help me find it
If I need to be still
Give me peace for the moment
Whatever Your will
Whatever Your will
Can you help me find it
Can you help me find it

WHEN COMPARED TO GOD

Author Unknown

The Israelites were filled with fright
As Goliath started toward them
Compared to man, this giant stood so tall
But David said, "My God has led me here to defeat him,
So don't compare him to me, let's compare him to God."

When compared to God, everything's small
There's no giant that compares at all
To the Holy One who sits upon His throne
So when you come to face a mountain so high
One glimpse of God brings it down to size
Satan will flee; you'll gain victory
When you compare it to God.

Oh, my friend, do you fear within
As your giant marches closer?
Do you know within your heart you cannot win?
Just have the faith of David's day and shout
"My God is bigger."
You'll find there's nothing on earth that compares to Him.

When compared to God, everything's small
There's no giant that compares at all
To the Holy One who sits upon His throne
So when you come to face a mountain so high
One glimpse of God brings it down to size
Satan will flee; you'll gain victory
When you compare it to God.

YOUR EASTER SUNDAY IS ON ITS WAY

Mark Bishop

I've been right where you are
I know all about the pain and the scars
And yes, I listen when you pray
My heart is touched by every word you say
For I remember how the tears flowed
Oh their memory will never fade
And child, the years have not diminished
The promise that I made

Your Easter Sunday is on its way
Though on Friday night it seems a million miles away
And if your Saturday’s in darkness,
And you’re waiting for the light of day
I’m here to say your Easter Sunday is on its way

That valley seems so low,
But in the darkness there’s a light that glows
A tender mercy from above
For when there’s nothing, there is still God’s love
And when they tell you there is no hope,
Well, that’s just words that people say
Soon that burden will be lifted and that stone will roll away

Your Easter Sunday is on its way
Though on Friday night it seems a million miles away
And if your Saturday’s in darkness,
And you’re waiting for the light of day
I’m here to say your Easter Sunday is on its way

VIA DOLOROSA

Niles Borop and Billy Sprague

Down the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem that day
The soldiers tried to clear the narrow street
But the crowd pressed in to see
A Man condemned to die on Calvary
He was bleeding from a beating,
There were stripes upon His back
And He wore a crown of thorns upon His head
And He bore with every step
The scorn of those who cried out for His death

Down the Via Dolorosa called the way of suffering
Like a lamb came the Messiah, Christ the King,
But He chose to walk that road out of His love For you and me.
Down the Via Dolorosa, all the way to Calvary.

Por la Via Dolorosa, triste dia en Jerusalem
Los saldados le abrian paso a Jesus
Mas la gente se acercaba
Para ver al que llevaba aquella cruz
Por la Via Dolorosa, que es la via Del dolor
Como oveja vino Cristo, Rey, SeƱor
Y fue El quien quiso ir por su amor
Por ti y Por mi
Por la Via Dolorosa al Calvario y a morir

The blood that would cleanse the souls of all men
Made its way to the heart of Jerusalem.

Down the Via Dolorosa called the way of suffering
Like a lamb came the Messiah, Christ the King
But He chose to walk that road out of His love for you and me
Down the Via Dolorosa, all the way to Calvary.

I HAVE SEEN THE LORD

Author Unknown

Blinded by her tears, she didn't recognize, 
The Lord she loved was standing right before her eyes,
Then He said her name, And the moment that she heard,
A flame was lit within her that flowed out in these words

I have seen the Lord, I can't keep it to myself, 
I'll testify that He's alive, What a glorious news to tell,
My Savior lives, I have seen the Lord

How can I do less than share it now with you,
The Lord I love is risen, I know that it's true, 
There's an empty grave, and this heart of mine believes,
The resurrection story has given life to me

I have seen the Lord, I can't keep it to myself, 
I'll testify that He's alive, What a glorious news to tell,
My Savior lives, I have seen the Lord

I have seen the cross, the blood, the nails, the crown,
I have seen them take His lifeless body down, 
I have seen the sun set on all my hopes and dreams,
Oh, but let me tell you what these eyes of faith have seen

I have seen the Lord, I can't keep it to myself, 
I'll testify that He's alive, What a glorious news to tell,
My Savior lives, I have seen the Lord

MY REDEEMER LIVES

Nicole C. Mullen

Who taught the sun where to stand in the morning?
And Who told the ocean, "You can only come this far"?
Who showed the moon where to hide 'til evening?
Whose words alone can catch a falling star?

Well, I know my Redeemer lives.
I know my Redeemer lives;
All of creation testifies
This life within me cry
I know my Redeemer lives.

The very same God that spins things in orbit
Runs to the weary, the worn and the weak.
And the same gentle hands that hold me when I'm broken
They conquered death to bring me victory.

Now, I know my Redeemer lives
I know my Redeemer lives;
Let all creation testify,
Let this life within we cry
I know my Redeemer lives.

He lives to take away my shame,
And He lives, forever I'll proclaim
That the payment for my sin
Was the precious life He gave
But now He's alive and
There's an empty grave.

And, I know my Redeemer lives.
I know my Redeemer lives;
Let all creation testify,
Let this life within me cry
I know my Redeemer lives.
