KING OF THE WORLD

Becca Mizell, Natalie Grant, Samuel Mizell 

I try to fit you in the walls inside my mind
I try to keep you safely in between the lines
I try to put you in the box that I've designed
I try to pull you down, so we are eye to eye

When did I forget that You've always been the King of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the King of the world
How could I make you so small
When You're the one who holds it all
When did I forget that You've always been the King of the world?

Just a whisper of your voice can tame the seas
So who am I to try to take the lead?
Still, I run ahead and think I'm strong enough
When you're the one who made me from the dust

When did I forget that You've always been the King of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the King of the world
How could I make you so small
When You're the one who holds it all
When did I forget that You've always been the King of the world?

Oh, you set it all in motion
Every single moment
You brought it all to me
And you're holding on to me

When did I forget that You've always been the King of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the King of the world
How could I make you so small
When You're the one who holds it all
When did I forget that You've always been the King of the world?

IN CHRIST ALONE

Stuart Townend & Keith Getty

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
‘Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

IT'S BEEN A LONG JOURNEY

Each day that I live, He gives more than I need
And I could never describe His goodness to me
If you ask how I make it day after day
There is only one thing I can say

It's been a long journey but I have been blessed
Walking with Jesus, I have no regrets
He is so good to me, and I must confess
The way has been long, but I'm blessed

All that I need I find at His feet
When I'm hungry, He feeds me with manna so sweet
When my soul is weary, He sends peace and rest
And all I can say is I'm blessed

Now I've had my share of sunshine and rain
Days filled with laughter and nights filled with pain
But with every mile as I travel this way
The journey gets sweeter each day

It's been a long journey but I have been blessed
Walking with Jesus, I have no regrets
He is so good to me, and I must confess
The way has been long, but I'm blessed

I'M BLESSED
So much more than I ever deserve
I'M BLESSED
He's been faithfully keeping His word
I'M BLESSED
I've been cleansed by the hand of the Lord
I'm blessed, I'm blessed, I'm blessed

It's been a long journey but I have been blessed
Walking with Jesus, I have no regrets
He is so good to me, and I must confess
The way has been long, but I'm blessed

IN IT AFTER ALL

Author?

So You were in it, after all
All of those moments I spent crying
When something inside of me was dying
I didn't know that You heard me
Each time I called
You had a reason for those trials
It seems I grew stronger every mile
Now I know You were in it, after all

We're always ready, Lord, to take the glory
But we're seldom willing to endure the pain
You were with me when the sun was shining,
And You were still beside me when it rained

So You were in it, after all
Taking the blows that I'd been given
Mending the wounds that needed mending
I didn't know that You heard me each time I called
I guess it's easy now to see it,
I don't know how I could have missed it, Jesus.
But You were in it, after all

IN YOUR CARE

Mark R. Harris and Billy Simon

Sleep, Mary, sleep; I will be there soon
Entering earth through your precious womb
My child, oh, My mother of earth
Give Me the gift of birth
Sleep, Joseph, sleep; may you dream of love
And peace to the earth through your newborn Son
Oh, raise Me with honor and pride
I will stand by your side

And I'll be in your care
Safely harbored there
My heavenly host will follow Me close
But always remember, please be aware
I will be in your care

Now, Israel, oh My chosen one
The prophets foretold that this day would come
I pray you will know I'm your King
Salvation is what I bring

And I'll be in your care
Safely harbored there
My heavenly host will follow Me close
But always remember, please be aware
I will be in your care

Care for Me and shelter Me in childhood
Knowing that someday I'll have to go
And though it may seem hopeless,
When I'm hanging on the tree
You can know for certain I'll return
But, until then oh, oh. . .

You'll be in My care
Safely harbored there
My heavenly host will follow you close
But always remember, please be aware
You will be in My care

NEW STAR SHINING

Johanna Hall and John Hall

They didn't own a house
No crib, no toys were waiting
Still, they had their love
For the child they were anticipating.
He was born one winter night
In a town called Bethlehem
They wrapped Him up so warm and tight
And said, "It looks like heaven's come down."

There was a new star shining in the sky up above
By His light that winter night, they found peace and perfect love
If we want to find it, I know we always will
'Cause that new star is shining for us still.

They worried how to feed Him.
Simple trade was all they knew
It was hard enough to make ends meet
When there were only two.
But the cold, the dark, and hunger,
Couldn't take away their joy
And they knew that they would find a way
For that precious baby boy.

There was a new star shining in the sky up above
By His light that winter night, they found peace and perfect love
If we want to find it, I know we always will
'Cause that new star is shining for us still.

If we want to find Him, I know we always will
'Cause that new star is shining for us still...

HALLELUJAH

Leonard Cohen

I've heard about this baby boy
Who's come to earth to bring us joy
And I just want to sing this song to you
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
With every breath, I'm singing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

A couple came to Bethlehem
Expecting child, they searched the inn
To find a place for You were coming soon
There was no room for them to stay
So in a manger filled with hay
God's only Son was born,
Oh, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

The shepherds left their flocks by night
To see this baby wrapped in light
A host of angels led them all to You
It was just as the angels said
You'll find Him in a manger bed
Immanuel and Savior, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

A star shone bright up in the east T
o Bethlehem, the wise men three
Came many miles and journeyed long for You
And to the place at which You were
Their frankincense and gold and myrrh
They gave to You and cried out Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I know You came to rescue me
This baby boy would grow to be
A man and one day die for me and you
My sins would drive the nails in You
That rugged cross was my cross, too
Still every breath You drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

GOD REST YE MERRY GENTLEMEN

Author Unknown

God rest ye merry, gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember, Christ, our Saviour
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

In Bethlehem, in Israel,
This blessed Babe was born
And laid within a manger
Upon this blessed morn
The which His mother Mary
Did nothing take in scorn
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

From God our Heavenly Father
A blessed angel came;
And unto certain shepherds
Brought tidings of the same:
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by Name.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

"Fear not then," said the angel,
"Let nothing you affright,
This day is born a Saviour
Of a pure virgin bright,
To free all those who trust in Him
From Satan's power and might."
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

The shepherds at those tidings
Rejoiced much in mind,
And left their flocks a-feeding
In tempest, storm and wind:
And went to Bethlehem straightway
The Son of God to find.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

And when they came to Bethlehem
Where our dear Saviour lay,
They found Him in a manger,
Where oxen feed on hay;
His mother Mary kneeling down,
Unto the Lord did pray.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

Now to the Lord sing praises,
All you within this place,
And with true love and brotherhood
Each other now embrace;
This holy tide of Christmas
All other doth deface.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

HOW MANY KINGS

Marc Martel and Jason Germain

Follow the star to a place unexpected
Would you believe, after all we've projected,
A child in a manger?
Lowly and small, the weakest of all
Unlikeliest hero, wrapped in his mother's shawl
Just a child; Is this who we've waited for?

How many kings step down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
And how many gods traveled so far
To save a world that is torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?

Bringing our gifts for the newborn Savior
All that we have, whether costly or meek
Because we believe.
Gold for his honor, and frankincense for his pleasure
And myrrh for the cross he will suffer
Do you believe? Is this who we've waited for?

How many kings step down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
And how many gods traveled so far
To save a world that is torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?
Only One did that for me.

All for me
All for you
All for me
All for you

How many kings step down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
And how many gods traveled so far
To save a world that is torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?
Only One did that for me.

A STRANGE WAY TO SAVE THE WORLD

Dave Clark, Mark Harris, Don Koch

I'm sure he must have been surprised
At where this road had taken him
Cause never in a million lives
Would he have dreamed of Bethlehem
And standing at the manger
He saw with his own eyes
The message from the angel
Come to life, and Joseph said

Why me, I'm just a simple man of trade
Why Him, with all the rulers of the world
Why here, inside this stable filled with hay
Why her, she's just an ordinary girl
Now I'm not one to second guess
What angels have to say
But, this is such a strange way to save the world

To think of how it could have been
If Jesus had come as He deserved
There would have been no Bethlehem
No lowly shepherds at His birth
But, Joseph knew the reason
Love had to reach so far
And as he held the Savior in his arms
He must have thought

Why me, I'm just a simple man of trade
Why Him, with all the rulers of the world
Why here, inside this stable filled with hay
Why her, she's just an ordinary girl
Now I'm not one to second guess
What angels have to say
But, this is such a strange way to save the world

A LITTLE PEACE ON EARTH

Twila LaBar, Joel Lindsey 

Lately I've been praying for a little peace on earth
The kind the angels sang about the starry night of Jesus' birth
And don't it seem like lately this old world is going wild
And we could all sure use a taste of mercy mild
So I'm praying for all it's worth for a little peace on earth

It's hard to imagine a silent night
In a busy world that never seems to sleep
But when I close my eyes and think of Bethlehem's Child
Then I realize just what we really need

Lately I've been praying for a little peace on earth
The kind the angels sang about the starry night of Jesus' birth
And don't it seem like lately this old world is going wild
And we could all sure use a taste of mercy mild
So I'm praying for all it's worth for a little peace on earth

I hear a church bell ringing in the distance
And faith wells up in me like a child
I bow my head and ask the Lord, "This Christmas
Could you help us get along for just awhile?"

Lately I've been praying for a little peace on earth
The kind the angels sang about the starry night of Jesus' birth

MARY, DID YOU KNOW?

Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene

Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy would one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy would save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your Baby Boy has come to make you new?
This Child that you delivered will soon deliver you.

Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy will calm the storm with His hand?
Did you know that your Baby Boy has walked where angels trod?
When you kiss your little Baby you've kissed the face of God?
Mary, did you know?

The blind will see. The deaf will hear. The dead will live again.
The lame will leap. The dumb will speak the praises of The Lamb.

Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy would one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your Baby Boy is heaven's perfect Lamb?
The sleeping Child you're holding is the great "I AM"

GOD IS WITH US

Wayne Kirkpatrick

The skies don't seem to be as dark as usual
The stars seem brighter than they've been before
Deep within I feel my soul a stirring
As though my hope has been restored
The shepherds say they've heard the voice of angels
Confirming rumors spread across the land
That a child protected well from Herod's anger
Is our Father's Son, and the Son of Man

Love is raining down on the world tonight
There's a presence here I can tell
God is in us, God is for us, God is with us, Emmanuel
He's the Savior we have been praying for
In our humble hearts He will dwell
God is in us, God is for us, God is with us, Emmanuel

I feel compelled to tell all who will listen
That peace on earth is not so out of reach
If we can find grace, mercy and forgiveness
He has come to save, He is all of these

Love is raining down on the world tonight
There's a presence here I can tell
God is in us, God is for us, God is with us, Emmanuel
He's the Savior we have been praying for
In our humble hearts He will dwell
God is in us, God is for us, God is with us, Emmanuel

IT'S STILL THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD

Gloria Gaither, William J. Gaither, J.D. Miller

A woman and an angel, a promise and a song.
A word too grand for any mind to hold.
A tax law and a journey, a stable and some straw.
These tell the greatest story ever told.

Oh, sing glory in the highest,
He is come--our great Messiah.
Come bow before this awesome mystery.
Mighty God and fragile baby,
Here a lowly manger holds.
And it's still the greatest story ever told.

A hillside and some shepherds, a blaze of blinding light.
Angels singing carols in the cold.
Eternal revelation to men as dull as stone.
The glorious, greatest story ever told.

Oh, sing glory in the highest,
He is come--our great Messiah.
Come bow before this awesome mystery.
Mighty God and fragile baby,
Here a lowly manger holds.
And it's still the greatest story ever told.

MARY KNEW

Gina Vera

An angel of the Lord went out for visitation
Mary's willing heart was this angel's destination
He spoke of One who would be born and reign as King and Lord
Overshadowed by the truth, Mary knew
Everyone could question her story's validation
Mary's news did not bring a joyous celebration
Even Joseph could not understand that this was Heaven's Lamb
But a manger held the truth, Mary knew

Mary knew Him at His best, and she knew Him at His worst
She understood the man in Him but knew that God came first
So she held her little promise, and she watched Him as He grew
And her faith never waivered from the truth; Mary knew

She followed all the way to the top of the great hill
Mary watched in silent pain the Father's plan fulfilled
And at His feet, she knelt that day as tears ran down her face
For the cross now held the truth, Mary knew
At the place where they had laid her baby down to sleep,
An angel told the story of what she had believed
She saw the stone was rolled away; it was just an empty grave
The tomb revealed the truth, Mary knew

Mary knew Him at His best, and she knew Him at His worst
She understood the man in Him but knew that God came first
So she held her little promise, and she watched Him as He grew
And her faith never waivered from the truth; Mary knew

IT'S ABOUT THE CROSS

Jamison J. Statema

It's not just about the manger
Where the baby lay
It's not all about the angels
Who sang for him that day
It's not just about the shepherds
Or the bright and shining star
It's not all about the wise men
Who traveled from afar

It's about the cross
It's about my sin
It's about how Jesus came to be born once
So that we could be born again
It's about the stone
That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday
It's about the cross
It's about the cross

It's not just about the presents
Underneath the tree
It's not all about the feeling
That the season brings to me
It's not just about coming home
To be with those you love
It's not all about the beauty
In the snow I'm dreaming of

It's about the cross
It's about my sin
It's about how Jesus came to be born once
So that we could be born again
It's about the stone
That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday
It's about the cross
It's about the cross

The beginning of the story is wonderful and great
But it's the ending that can save you and that's why we celebrate

It's about the cross
It's about my sin
It's about how Jesus came to be born once
So that we could be born again
It's about God's love
Nailed to a tree
It's about every drop of blood that flowed from Him when it should have been me
It's about the stone
That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday
So that you and I could have real life someday
It's about the cross
It's about the cross

How I wish we would have known
But long-awaited Holy Stranger
Make Yourself at home
Please make Yourself at home

Bring Your peace into our violence
Bid our hungry souls be filled
Word now breaking Heaven's silence
Welcome to our world
Welcome to our world

Fragile fingers sent to heal us
Tender brow prepared for thorns
Tiny heart Whose blood will save us
Unto us is born
Unto us is born

Breathe our air and walk our sod
Rob our sin and make us holy

I'm tired of religious formality
I'm tired

Send the wind
Send the Holy Ghost in power
Send the rain

We're ready for revival, Lord
We're ready to walk through the door
We're ready, Lord, oh, let it pour
We're ready, Lord
We're ready, Lord, enough is enough
We're ready, Lord, to drink from your cup
We're ready, oh, fill us up
We're ready, Lord.

THIS IS THE DAY

Nancy Harmon

This is the day that the Lord hath made
I will rejoice and be exceedingly glad
I will lift up mine eyes to which cometh my help
What cometh from the Lord
Great God Almighty never, never fails

I can’t help but tell what He’s done for me
How He lifted my soul and gave me the victory
Set my footsteps a’ walkin’ right
Gave me eyes to see the light
This is the day that the Lord hath made

Let the Heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad
Let the hills sing forth, let the sea roll back
This is the day that the Lord hath made

Let the Heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad
Let the hills sing forth, let the sea roll back
Let the earth and all creation
Every tribe and every nation
Sing a song of adoration
It’s the day of celebration
This is the day that the Lord hath made; He hath made

I’m gonna keep on singin’;
I’m gonna keep on shoutin’
I’m gonna keep on liftin’ my voice
And let the world know that Jesus saves
I’m gonna keep on singin’;
I’m gonna keep on shoutin’
I’m gonna keep on liftin’ my voice
And let the world know that this is the day
That the Lord hath made
I will rejoice and be exceedingly glad
I will lift up mine eyes to which cometh my help
What cometh from the Lord
Great God Almighty never, never fails; never fails

Let the Heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad
Let the hills sing forth, let the sea roll back
Let the Heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad
Let the hills sing forth, let the sea roll back

HE'S A GREAT AND MIGHTY GOD

Author?

He took a space so dark and void with not one sign of life.
In six short days, He simply spoke and the whole world came alive,
Every time I breathe the air, He gives a smell of sweet red rose,
He's a God of wonder, I'm overwhelmed at all my eyes behold!

What a Great and Mighty, Powerful, Awesome, Wonderful God is He!
He's the only one who's worthy of Glory, Honor, Praise and Blessing!
He's the Great I Am, The Lion, The Lamb, He is the King of Kings!
What a Great and Mighty, Powerful, Awesome, Wonderful God is He!

What joy to know about His pow'r and all His wondrous works,
God's glory leaps right from the pages when I read His Word.
His testimony testifies He is the Lord of all,
And I realize, just one more time, He's a Great and Mighty God!

What a Great and Mighty, Powerful, Awesome, Wonderful God is He!
He's the only one who's worthy of Glory, Honor, Praise and Blessing!
He's the Great I Am, The Lion, The Lamb, He is the King of Kings!
What a Great and Mighty, Powerful, Awesome, Wonderful God is He!

A mighty fortress is our God,
A bulwark never failing;
Our helper He amid the flood
Of mortal ills prevailing.

What a Great and Mighty, Powerful, Awesome, Wonderful God is He!
He's the only one who's worthy of Glory, Honor, Praise and Blessing!
He's the Great I Am, The Lion, The Lamb, He is the King of Kings!
What a Great and Mighty, Powerful, Awesome, Wonderful God is He!

I WILL TRUST YOU, LORD

Author?

It's funny how we do it, compartmentalize
We plan for success and try to pass the pain right by
But it just doesn't work that way; God has a different plan,
He works in ways we'd never see beyond the scope of man.

When the journey takes a detour unexpectedly
And I try to accept and understand what it all means
When I'm pressed to show the world what I really believe,
I will trust you, Lord
When my heart begins to faint because I see a life so 'fraid,
And my soul cries out, "Oh Lord, how long can I keep this at bay?"
In the fiercest part of battle, when my feet don't want to stay,
I will trust you, Lord,
I will trust you Lord with my life.

I may not understand it, and even question why
What good could ever come from this has even crossed my mind
But God's teaching me to trust Him more as He works His will in me
I rest securely in His care, and surrender sure is sweet

When the journey takes a detour unexpectedly
And I try to accept and understand what it all means
When I'm pressed to show the world what I really believe,
I will trust you, Lord
When my heart begins to faint because I see a life so 'fraid,
And my soul cries out, "Oh Lord, how long can I keep this at bay?"
In the fiercest part of battle, when my feet don't want to stay,
I will trust you, Lord,
I will trust you Lord with my life.

DRINKING FROM MY SAUCER

Jimmy Dean

I've never made a fortune
And it's probably too late now
But I don't worry about that much
I'm happy anyhow
And as I go along life's journey
I'm reaping better than I sowed
I'm drinking from my saucer
'Cause my cup has overflowed

Haven't got a lot of riches
And sometimes the going's tough
But I've got a Friend in Jesus
And that makes me rich enough
I thank God for His blessings
And the mercies He's bestowed
I'm drinking from my saucer
'Cause my cup has overflowed

Remember times when things went wrong
My faith wore somewhat thin
But all at once the dark clouds broke
And sun peeped through again
So Lord, help me not to gripe
About the tough rows that I've hoed
I'm drinking from my saucer
'Cause my cup has overflowed

If God gives me strength and courage
When the way grows steep and rough
I'll not ask for other blessings
I'm already blessed enough
And may I never be too busy
To help another bear his load
Then I'll keep drinking from my saucer
'Cause my cup has overflowed

In the Storm With Him

Author Unknown

I took my ship sailing
On life's mighty sea
And storm clouds gathered
The winds picked up their speed
Angry waves crashed in sight
And I was tossed from side to side
There seemed to be no hope for me
But in Christ, I realized

When the storm around me rages
And the thunder sounds so deep
I don't worry about the waves
He won't let my ship sink
He'll shield me in the palm of His hand
Until the storm is gone
And I'd rather be in the storm with Him
Than in calm waters alone

When I look back
On all the distant clouds
I know nothing short of a miracle
Could have brought me out
So when the tempest blows and darkness falls
It's on the Master I will call
'Cause in Him I place my trust
And to Christ, I give it all

When the storm around me rages
And the thunder sounds so deep
I don't worry about the waves
He won't let my ship sink
He'll shield me in the palm of His hand
Until the storm is gone
And I'd rather be in the storm with Him
Than in calm waters alone

He's my Comforter
He's my Refuge
My Protector and my Shield
If He don't calm the storm
He'll be with me
And keep my ship still

When the storm around me rages
And the thunder sounds so deep
I don't worry about the waves
He won't let my ship sink
He'll shield me in the palm of His hand
Until the storm is gone
And I'd rather be in the storm with Him
Than in calm waters alone

LORD, YOUR WORD IS STILL TRUE

Diane Wilkinson

Though words can be spoken, vows can be broken
When those you once trusted let you down
Faith can be shaken, confidence mistaken
When few faithful friends can be found
But I have a treasure…peace beyond all measure
Lord, my faith everyday You renew
I know whatever You do… Your Word is still true

Lord, when You saved me…the promises You gave me
Sustained me…and I know they are still mine
For it’s settled in Heaven, Your Word lives forever
Never changed by the passing of time
So whether you’re blessing, or whether you’re testing my faith
I’ll still trust You
Though the world falls around me….
Lord, Your Word is still true

Before I believed it…. I just couldn’t see it
When Christians put their troubles in God’s hands
Stormy winds were blowing, but they had joy in knowing
The sun would shine once again
So I learned a lesson…no heartache, no depression
Can defeat me when storm clouds break through
Lord, You’ll do what You said You would do
Your Word is true

Lord, when You saved me…the promises You gave me
Sustained me…and I know they are still mine
For it’s settled in Heaven, Your Word lives forever
Never changed by the passing of time
So whether you’re blessing, or whether you’re testing my faith
I’ll still trust You
Though the world falls around me….
Lord, Your Word is still true

CAN THE WORLD SEE JESUS IN YOU?

Leila N. Morris

Do we live so close to the Lord today,
Passing to and fro on life’s busy way,
That the world in us can a likeness see
To the Man of Calvary?


Can the world see Jesus in me?
Can the world see Jesus in you?
Does your love to Him ring true,
And your life and service, too?
Can the world see Jesus in you?

Do we love, with love to His own akin,
All His creatures lost in the mire of sin?
Will we reach a hand, whatsoe’er it cost,
To reclaim a sinner lost?


Can the world see Jesus in me?
Can the world see Jesus in you?
Does your love to Him ring true,
And your life and service, too?
Can the world see Jesus in you?

As an open book they our lives will read,
To our words and acts giving daily heed;
Will they be attracted, or turn away
From the Man of Calvary?


Can the world see Jesus in me?
Can the world see Jesus in you?
Does your love to Him ring true,
And your life and service, too?
Can the world see Jesus in you?

ENJOY THE LORD

Rodney Griffin

Their hearts were filled with wonder
As He opened blinded eyes
They'd never seen a show like this before
And they watched in amazement
As He brought the dead to life
What they'd witnessed here could never be ignored
But among the miracles they missed the glory
The Creator of the world was in their midst
Never taking time to praise this One so holy
When that's all He'd ever tried to teach to them

Enjoy the Lord
Sense His presence
Be glad that He is with us
See the smile on His face
Extending love and grace
Touch His hand, pull Him close
He wants you to know
That no one else could love you more
Enjoy the Lord

I, too, have watched in wonder
As the Lord began to move
He's answered prayer right before my eyes
And, I've stood in amazement
As the impossible came true
A holy touch of God upon my life
And I'm sure that there were times I missed the glory
The Creator of the world was in my midst
I was so concerned with what He was doing for me
I forgot to thank Him just for who He is

Enjoy the Lord
Sense His presence
Be glad that He is with us
See the smile on His face
Extending love and grace
Touch His hand, pull Him close
He wants you to know
That no one else could love you more
Enjoy the Lord

GOD WILL PASS BY

Rodney Griffin

Elijah sat down on the banks of the river
He wondered how long 'til God would pass by
A promise that ravens his food would deliver
He said to himself, "My God will supply."

Still the hours passed on, and no help was coming
He looked toward the sky; there was nothing to see
Would he be wrong if he asked God to hurry?
With tears in his eyes, he rose to his feet.

He lifted his hands and a feeble prayer uttered
His body so weak and bound to fail soon
Suddenly, he heard some bird wings aflutter
He fell to his knees for God had come through.

God will pass by at the right time.
God will pass by so lift up your eyes.
Oh, weary child, let your light shine;
Your rescue is almost in sight.
You have a promise that God will pass by;
No greater promise than God will pass by.

You've waited so long and still have no answer
You've prayed and you've prayed for help to arrive.
Don't you lose hope, just stand by the river
Offer Him praise; your Savior is nigh!

God will pass by at the right time.
God will pass by so lift up your eyes.
Oh, weary child, let your light shine;
Your rescue is almost in sight.
You have a promise that God will pass by;
No greater promise than God will pass by.

MORE THAN JUST A SWEAR WORD

Author?

His name is voiced in every conversation
He’s now become a superstar they say
But, oh, the curse it’s bringing to our nation
When men proclaim His holy name in vain

He's so much more than just a swear word
More than just an "I don’t care" word
How can we use His name so recklessly
Our only hope is in this one word
Whosoever will may come word
He’s more than just a swear word
He’s the precious Son of God

It’s so hard to understand how those around us
Are plunging to a lost eternity
And all the while they say the name of Jesus
But they curse the only name that sets them free

He's so much more than just a swear word
More than just an "I don’t care" word
How can we use His name so recklessly
Our only hope is in this one word
Whosoever will may come word
He’s more than just a swear word
He’s the precious Son of God

JUST BE HELD

Mark Hall, Bernie Herms and Matthew West

Hold it all together
Everybody needs you strong
But life hits you out of nowhere
And barely leaves you holding on
And when you're tired of fighting
Chained by your control
There's freedom in surrender
Lay it down and let it go

So when you're on your knees
And answers seem so far away
You're not alone, stop holding on
And just be held
Your world's not falling apart, it's falling into place
I'm on the throne, stop holding on
And just be held
Just be held, just be held

If your eyes are on the storm
You'll wonder if I love you still
But if your eyes are on the cross
You'll know I always have and I always will
And not a tear is wasted
In time, you'll understand
I'm painting beauty with the ashes
Your life is in My hands

So when you're on your knees
And answers seem so far away
You're not alone, stop holding on
And just be held
Your world's not falling apart, it's falling into place
I'm on the throne, stop holding on
And just be held
Just be held, just be held

Lift your hands, lift your eyes
In the storm is where you'll find Me
And where you are, I'll hold your heart
I'll hold your heart
Come to Me, find your rest
In the arms of the God who won't let go

So when you're on your knees
And answers seem so far away
You're not alone, stop holding on
And just be held
Your world's not falling apart, it's falling into place
I'm on the throne, stop holding on
And just be held
Just be held, just be held

YOU COULD BE THE DIFFERENCE

Sam Mizell, Jamie Slocum and Sam Tinnesz

Sometimes it's good to just listen
Sometimes you gotta speak out
Be the voice of healing to someone that needs you now
Sometimes it's good to take risks
And stand when no one else stands
Why be like everyone else just because you can?

Be a house on a hill
Be a fire burning bright
For a hopeless world that's lost its light
You never know who's watching
You could be the difference
Be the first hand that reaches for an outcast soul
Be a second chance on a dead-end road
You never know what could happen
You could be the difference

Life is made of so many moments
And each one matters so much
Yeah, every single second here is another chance to love
You can start a chain reaction
Just one person at a time
Don't be afraid to let your heart shine

Be a house on a hill
Be a fire burning bright
For a hopeless world that's lost its light
You never know who's watching
You could be the difference
Be the first hand that reaches for an outcast soul
Be a second chance on a dead-end road
You never know what could happen
You could be the difference

Jesus is alive
Everyone needs to hear this
Share His love, show His grace, be the hope, be the change
Let the truth make you fearless

Be a house on a hill
Be a fire burning bright
For a hopeless world that's lost its light
You never know who's watching
You could be the difference
Be the first hand that reaches for an outcast soul
Be a second chance on a dead-end road
You never know what could happen
You could be the difference

CALLED OUT

Some folks I know by their name, others I know by their face.
Some I know for their fame, while others are known by their ways.
But in the kingdom of my Lord, each soul has a place.
In my mind, I have no doubt, my name has been called out.

And you've been called out for a purpose,
Called out To be a servant,
Called out to raise a standard
Called out to lift a banner,
You've been called out to be a witness,
Called out to show forgiveness
Called out from this world, my child, you've been called out.

In the prison walls, on that day, the jailor bound up their feet.
Stripped of their garments there they lay, bleeding from where they were beat
But around midnight, Paul began to pray, and Silas, he started to sing
The earth shook about, the doors swung open wide
And God said "You've been called out"

And you've been called out for a purpose,
Called out To be a servant,
Called out to raise a standard
Called out to lift a banner,
You've been called out to be a witness,
Called out to show forgiveness
Called out from this world, my child, you've been called out.

A Masterpiece of Mercy

Jim Brady and Rodney Griffin

He knew what I was when He made me
He saw the sinner I’d become
Yet He knew He had grace that could save me
His latest work of art had just begun

He started with an old dirty canvas
My sin had left me tattered, bent, and marred
Then this Artist turned His light upon my sadness
And began to wash away the blackest part

When all the stains were gone He started painting
With colors that I’d never seen before
Then with joy He was ready to display me
To show the world what the Cross was for

A masterpiece of mercy; a miracle of grace
When the Master sees one hurting
And wipes the pain away
The canvas of the Artist
Becomes a holy place
For a masterpiece of mercy; a miracle of grace

Now I’m getting ready for Heaven
Every day just makes me want to go
But the Artist hasn’t stopped; He’s still painting
And when He’s finished, He will take me Home

A masterpiece of mercy; a miracle of grace
When the Master sees one hurting
And wipes the pain away
The canvas of the Artist
Becomes a holy place
For a masterpiece of mercy; a miracle of grace

IF YOU KNEW HIM

Joseph Habedank and Rodney Griffin

I walked by the tomb of Buddha 
Looked inside and saw his bones, 
Traveled on to see Mohammad 
Still wrapped up in his grave clothes, 
Then I journeyed to a garden 
Where old Joseph left him lay, 
The precious Lamb, God's own begotten,
He was no longer in the grave

If you knew Him like I know Him, 
You would know that He's alive, 
If you felt Him like I feel Him,  
Resurrection deep inside, 
You'd know He's living and death has died.

If you're wondering in the darkness 
Come and step into the light, 
Nail-scarred hands reach out to help you, 
To pull you safe from death to life
Friend, I too have have stood where you stand,  
Could I trust in things unseen, 
But just one step in His direction 
Then in love, He ran to me

If you knew Him like I know Him, 
You would know that He's alive, 
If you felt Him like I feel Him,  
Resurrection deep inside, 
You'd know He's living and death has died.

PEACE IN THE SHELTER

Jim Brady

When the cares of life seem more than I can handle
And clouds of doubt have settled in my soul
When everywhere I turn the storm is raging
Into the Savior’s loving arms I go

There is peace in the shelter of His arms
A refuge from the storm where I am safe from harm
Through the strongest winds and pouring rain
There’s peace in the shelter of His arms

There’s never been a moment on this journey
That I have been forsaken or alone
'Cause every time I face the unexpected
My Father gently leads through the unknown

There is peace in the shelter of His arms
A refuge from the storm where I am safe from harm
Through the strongest winds and pouring rain
There’s peace in the shelter of His arms

There’s peace that passes all understanding
And peace that goes beyond all comprehending

There is peace in the shelter of His arms
A refuge from the storm where I am safe from harm
Through the strongest winds and pouring rain
There’s peace in the shelter of His arms

LITTLE IS MUCH WHEN GOD IS IN IT

Kittie Suffield

In the harvest field now ripened,
There's a work for all to do.
Hark, the voice of God is calling,
To the harvest calling you.

Little is much when God is in it.
Labor not for wealth or fame.
There's a crown and you can win it,
If you go in Jesus' name.

Does the place you're called to labor
Seem so small and little known?
It is great if God is in it,
And He'll not forget His own.

Little is much when God is in it.
Labor not for wealth or fame.
There's a crown and you can win it,
If you go in Jesus' name.

When the conflict here is ended
And our race on earth is run,
He will say, if we are faithful,
"Welcome home, my child, well done."

Little is much when God is in it.
Labor not for wealth or fame.
There's a crown and you can win it,
If you go in Jesus' name.

NEVER WALK ALONE

John Paul Williams, Jeremy Johnson

Arms stretched out wide barely hanging onto life
Left to suffer on your own
You came for all mankind to bridge the great divide
And somehow you ended up alone
Because of all the blood and tears you shed
I will never know that kind of loneliness

Your spirit never leaves me even when I’m hurting
I don’t have to bear these burdens on my own
You carried all the pain and buried all the shame when
You made that rugged tree your righteous throne
Because of you I’ll never walk alone

You came here as a man; I know you understand
What it’s like to walk these roads
My problems can’t compare to that crown you had to wear
Still you take them as your own
Because of all the blood and tears you shed
I will never know that kind of loneliness

Your spirit never leaves me even when I’m hurting
I don’t have to bear these burdens on my own
You carried all the pain and buried all the shame when
You made that rugged tree your righteous throne
Because of you I’ll never walk alone

CARRY ME

Josh Wilson and Ben Glover

I try to catch my breath
It hasn't happened yet
I'm wide awake in the middle of the night scared to death
So I prayed, "God, would You make this stop?
Father, please hold on to me; You're all I've got."

Carry me, carry me, carry me now
From my sinking sand to Your solid ground
The only way I'm ever gonna make it out
Is if You carry me, carry me, carry me now
God, carry me, carry me, carry me now

Jesus, calm my heart
Come near me please
Lord, don't let these worries get the best of me
Oh, I believe that You're still here with me
'Cause You meant what You said when You said You'd never leave

Carry me, carry me, carry me now
From my sinking sand to Your solid ground
The only way I'm ever gonna make it out
Is if You carry me, carry me, carry me now
God carry me, carry me, carry me now

Carry me
God carry me
Carry me
God carry me

I'm at the end of myself
I know I've got nothing left
Feels like I'm stuck in the valley of the shadow of death
And I've been down here so long
I just can't find my way out
Oh, God, I don't stand a chance
Unless You carry me now
God carry me now

Carry me, carry me, carry me now
From my sinking sand to Your solid ground
The only way I'm ever gonna make it out
Is if You carry me, carry me, carry me now
God carry me, carry me, carry me now

WITH ALL THE MANY MIRACLES

Rodney Griffin

God gave a bold command
To cross the Jordan and claim the land
Not to worry about the giants they would face
But when the spies returned
To tell the others what they had learned
They said, "For us to win, there's just no way."

Still two of them trusted God
Caleb and Joshua
They said, "Children, don't believe what you have heard.
We know we're out-manned by far
And they're much bigger than we are
But let's not forget just who it is we serve."

With all the many miracles,
Why don't you think it's possible?
With all the many things we've seen,
Why do you think it's just a dream?
With all the things He's done for us,
Don't you think it's time we trust?
Remember what is possible
With all the many miracles.

Like when we were about to die
Manna fell from the sky
And water came from a dry old dusty rock
And back when Pharaoh was closing in
God closed the sea again
But not before we all had safely crossed.

So, here you are, my friend
You face a battle you cannot win
And you tell yourself, "There's just no need to try"
Consider how good God's been
He's been faithful time and again
You must believe and here's the reason why.

With all the many miracles,
Why don't you think it's possible?
With all the many things we've seen,
Why do you think it's just a dream?
With all the things He's done for us,
Don't you think it's time we trust?
Remember what is possible
With all the many miracles.

COME, THOU FOUNT OF EVERY BLESSING

Robert Robinson

Come, Thou fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace,
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it,
Mount of God's unchanging love.

Here I raise my Ebenezer,
Hither by Thy help I've come,
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God,
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood.

Oh, to grace how great a debtor
Daily I'm constrained to be,
Let that grace now like a fetter
Bind my wandering heart to Thee:
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love.
Here's my heart, oh, take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.

Oh, that day when freed from sinning,
I shall see Thy lovely face,
Clothed then in the blood washed linen
How I'll sing Thy wondrous grace!
Come, my Lord, no longer tarry,
Take my ransomed soul away,
Send Thine angels soon to carry
Me to realms of endless day.

YOU KEEP PRAYING

Sandy Knight

Do the steps you take grow weary
Like you're walking all alone
Does the midnight hour seem darker
Is it hard to sing a song
Just take a tighter hold on hope
Breathe a prayer and don't let go
You just keep on praying
And you keep holding on

You keep praying while God keeps moving
You keep holding on without a doubt
You keep knocking; the door will open
You keep praying while God sends the answer down
When Daniel's prayer was hindered
Daniel still prayed on
Then God sent down an angel
To take the answer home
In spite of Satan's evil force
The answers coming down for sure
You just keep on praying
For the battle is the Lord's


You keep praying while God keeps moving
You keep holding on without a doubt
You keep knocking; the door will open
You keep praying while God sends the answer down

SOMETIMES HE CALMS THE STORM

Benton Kevin Stokes, Tony W. Woods

All who sail the sea of faith find out before too long
How quickly blue skies can grow dark and gentle winds grow strong
Suddenly fear is like white water pounding on the soul
Still, we sail on knowing that our Lord is in control

Sometimes He calms the storm
With a whispered peace be still
He can settle any sea
But it doesn't mean He will
Sometimes He holds us close
And lets the wind and waves go wild
Sometimes He calms the storm
And other times He calms His child

He has a reason for each trial that we pass through in life
And though we're shaken we cannot be pulled apart from Christ
No matter how the driving rain beats down on those who hold to faith
A heart of trust will always be a quiet peaceful place

Sometimes He calms the storm
With a whispered peace be still
He can settle any sea
But it doesn't mean He will
Sometimes He holds us close
And lets the wind and waves go wild
Sometimes He calms the storm
And other times He calms His child

Author?

When life is like a battlefield
And it looks like you're losing the war
When the enemy is gaining victory
And it's more than you bargained for
No need to fret, no need to fear, no need to keep score
Remember David's odds were no problem for God
'Cause the battle belonged to the Lord

For every Goliath - there is a stone
We don't face life's giants in our strength alone
The Rock, the Rock of Ages is our source of hope
For every Goliath - there is a stone

Now if you find you're doing time on the front lines without a plan
Shakin' in your boots, remember God can use
Even pebbles in the palm of your hand
No need to run, no need to hide, no need to lose hope
You may be down for the count, but you're never out
It's not over when God's in control

For every Goliath - there is a stone
We don't face life's giants in our strength alone
The Rock, the Rock of Ages is our source of hope
For every Goliath - there is a stone

In the middle of the battle, God is able to supply
The strength that we need by the power He provides

For every Goliath - there is a stone
We don't face life's giants in our strength alone
The Rock, the Rock of Ages is our source of hope
For every Goliath - there is a stone

ABOVE ALL CIRCUMSTANCES

Stephanie McKenna and Debbie Ponceti

A LIFETIME OF REGRET
AND A LONGING FOR THE THINGS YOU DIDN’T GET
THE PATH YOU CHOSE TOOK YOU AWAY
AND NOW YOU THINK IT’S JUST TOO LATE

BUT ABOVE ALL CIRCUMSTANCES
IS THE GOD OF SECOND CHANCES
HIS LOVE CAN REACH TO WHERE YOU ARE
NO MATTER HOW YOU’RE LIVIN’,
YOUR PAST CAN BE FORGIVEN
THERE’S NOTHING LEFT TO DO BUT RUN INTO HIS ARMS.

YOUR SOUL FEELS TORN APART
AND YOU’VE CUT YOURSELF OFF FROM YOUR HEART
YOU THINK THAT IT’S TOO LATE TO PRAY,
YOU’RE ALL ALONE, YOU’VE LOST YOUR WAY.

BUT ABOVE ALL CIRCUMSTANCES
IS THE GOD OF SECOND CHANCES
HIS LOVE CAN REACH TO WHERE YOU ARE
NO MATTER HOW YOU’RE LIVIN’,
YOUR PAST CAN BE FORGIVEN
THERE’S NOTHING LEFT TO DO BUT RUN INTO HIS ARMS.

YOU THINK IT’S IMPOSSIBLE
BUT HIS LOVE IS UNSTOPPABLE
IT’S REALLY BIG, BUT NOT TOO BIG FOR HIM…

CAUSE ABOVE ALL CIRCUMSTANCES
IS THE GOD OF SECOND CHANCES
HIS LOVE CAN REACH TO WHERE YOU ARE
NO MATTER HOW YOU’RE LIVIN’,
YOUR PAST CAN BE FORGIVEN
THERE’S NOTHING LEFT TO DO BUT RUN INTO HIS ARMS.

LITTLE DAVID

 Sandy Knight

Little David, oh, so small,
Goliath, oh, so tall,
Odds were just too high, poor little David.
So he shook off all of his load
For with the power of God he was clothed,
He said, "The battle's not mine; I give it to You;
Lord, it's Thine."

"The battle's not mine," said little David,
"Lord, it's Thine; I'm in Your favor.
I've given it all to You,
I knew not what to do.
I'm so glad You let me see
You're really all that I need.
For the battle's not mine; I give it to You;
Lord, it's Thine."

Now little David, unafraid
Before the giant he stood that day
Seems 'twill be the end, poor little David.
Just like the lion and the bear he slew
Oh, Goliath shall come down too
For the battle's not mine; I give it to You;

Lord, it's Thine.
"The battle's not mine," said little David,
"Lord, it's Thine; I'm in Your favor.
I've given it all to You,
I knew not what to do.
I'm so glad You let me see
You're really all that I need.
For the battle's not mine; I give it to You;
Lord, it's Thine."

Now little David, he stood tall,
Now Goliath seemed so small,
Sweet victory had reigned for little David.
'Cause he gave the battle to One
With a record of getting things done,
He said, "The battle's not mine; I give it to You;
Lord, it's Thine."

"The battle's not mine," said little David,
"Lord, it's Thine, I'm in Your favor.
I'm giving it all to You,
I know not what to do.
I'm so glad You let me see,
You're really all that I need.
For the battle's not mine, I give it to You,
Lord, it's Thine."

LET JESUS KNOW ALL ABOUT IT

Mark Bishop

Maybe it’s time to…(Let Jesus know all about it…)
Maybe it’s time to…(Let Jesus know all about it…)

When I was young I was so sure of myself
So wrapped up in myself…so caught up in myself
Hard times would come and there were lessons I learned
There were tears that I cried…oh there were bridges I burned
Then before long, all my dreams and my hopes
Were like whispers of smoke; there at the end of my rope
I heard about someone who could change everything
What peace He could bring…then I heard a choir sing

(They were saying…) Let Jesus know all about it
(They were singing…) Let Jesus know all about it
(Sounded like a choir of angels…) Let Jesus know all about it
(They were talking straight to my heart…) Oohoohoohoohoohooh

Down on my knees…no-one else could I blame
For my guilt and my shame…so I just called on His name
Suddenly I felt great peace in my soul
My cup overflowed… so glad somebody told (me that I should…)

Let Jesus know all about it
(They said maybe it’s time to…) Let Jesus know all about it
(They said maybe it’s time you…) Let Jesus know all about it
(Oh maybe, maybe, maybe it’s time…) Oohooh-oohoohoohooho

When you are troubled; your life’s in a mess
Just fall down and confess…you’ll be happy and blessed
For He already knows all the tears that I’ve cried
When I’m tested and tried…and what I’m feeling inside

He already knows, yes He already knows
All your trouble and strife…He already knows
He already knows, yes He already knows
Everything in your life…He already knows

(The choir was singing…) Let Jesus know all about it
(They were singing right to me…) Let Jesus know all about it
(I felt something pulling at my heart…) Let Jesus know all about it
(Oh and finally I saw the light…) Oohooh-oohoohoohoohoo

DIE ANOTHER DAY

Author?

Yesterday I placed my life
Before You once again
Surrendered everything I had
And everything You know I am
But, Lord, this is now and that was then

I die to my ambitions
I die to selfish pride
I take up my cross and cast my will aside
My life upon the altar as a sacrifice I lay
What joy to live and die another day.

Tomorrow I will come to You
Like all the times before
Needing daily grace
I'll crucify the flesh once more
And count it as a privilege, O Lord

I die to my ambitions
I die to selfish pride
I take up my cross and cast my will aside
My life upon the altar as a sacrifice I lay
What joy to live and die another day.

For me to live is Christ and to die is gain.

I die to my ambitions
I die to selfish pride
I take up my cross and cast my will aside
My life upon the altar as a sacrifice I lay
What joy to live and die another day.

I WANNA KNOW YOU MORE

Chaz Bosarge

Forgetting the things behind me, reaching for the higher call
I don't care what it may cost me; I'm ready to give my all
There is a passion deep inside of me;
You are my one and only need

I really want to know You more
My heart is hungry for You, Lord
I really want to know You more
My prayer, oh holy father,
Take me out to deeper water
I'm pushing now out from the shore
I really want to know You more

So tired of ordinary, sanctified complacency
I have this holy hunger; I want to see your majesty
There's a passion deep inside of me
And that passion drives me to my knees

I really want to know You more
My heart is hungry for You, Lord
I really want to know You more
My prayer, oh holy father,
Take me out to deeper water
I'm pushing now out from the shore
I really want to know You more
