SOMETHING CHANGED

Sara Groves

Something changed inside me
Broke wide open; all spilled out
Till I had no doubt
That something changed

Never would have believed it
Till I felt it in my own heart
In the deepest part
The healing came

And I cannot make it
And I cannot fake it
And I can't afford it
But it's mine

Something so amazing
In a heart so dark and dim
When a wall falls down
And the light comes in

And I cannot make it
And I cannot fake it
And I can't afford it
But it's mine

FEAR NOT TOMORROW

Carolyn Adkins

In this age of uncertainty,
Questions come to my mind;
What is waiting ahead for me
And the rest of mankind?

Fear not tomorrow,
God is already there.
He's charting the course you'll take;
He sees each hidden snare.
He's waiting to guide you
Through each burden and care.
Fear not tomorrow,
God is already there.

Are you troubled o'er things to come?
Is your future unsure?
Are you dreading the coming dawn,
The long day to endure?

Fear not tomorrow,
God is already there.
He's charting the course you'll take;
He sees each hidden snare.
He's waiting to guide you
Through each burden and care.
Fear not tomorrow,
God is already there.

Lazarus, Come Forth

Author?

Heartbroken, tears falling
Martha found Jesus
She questioned why Lazarus had died.
When she had thus spoken,
Her doubts were then silenced.
He walked toward the body and cried.

Lazarus, come forth. Awake like the morning.
Arise with new hope, a new life is born.
Lazarus, come forth. From death now awaken.
For Jesus has spoken. Death's chains have been broken.
Lazarus, come forth.

The tomb now was empty.
Martha stopped crying.
Her brother now stood by her side.
The Pharisee's wondered about what had happened.
How could one now live who had died?

The reason this story gives hope to so many
Is although we know we must die.
Our bodies won't stay there
In cold and dark silence.
We'll hear Jesus cry from on high.

Children come forth Awake like the morning.
Arise with new hope, a new life is born.
Children come forth. From death now awaken.
For Jesus has spoken. Death's chains have been broken.
Children come forth.

SOMETIMES IT TAKES A STORM

Author?

When your waters are so troubled,
You don't think you count at all.
Waves may seem like mountains,
When your boat is oh so small.
But somewhere past the clouds
Waits a new day to begin.
Sometimes it takes a storm
To calm your storm within.

Sometimes it takes a storm
To know you need a shelter.
When the anchor's in your life
Disappear without a trace.
Sometimes the wind will rage
Before you sail calm waters.
Sometimes it takes a storm
To find a hiding place.

They were drifting in the darkness,
The sea was all around.
They cried out to the Master,
"Please save us or we'll drown."
Jesus heard the cries,
And mercy stilled the wind.
Sometimes it takes a storm
To see the sun again.

Sometimes it takes a storm
To know you need a shelter.
When the anchor's in your life
Disappear without a trace.
Sometimes the wind will rage
Before you sail calm waters.
Sometimes it takes a storm
To find a hiding place.

Sometimes the wind will rage
Before you sail calm waters.
Lord thank you for the storms,
For I've found my hiding place.
Oh, thank you for the storms;
Lord, You are my hiding place.

HE THOUGHT OF ME

Ronny Hinson & Debra Harris

He said "Father if it be your will;" the sweat turned into blood
All at once his heart stood still, overcome by love.
With ten thousand reasons why it didn't have to be
In mercy, love and mercy He thought of me.

From the garden where he prayed, straight to Pilate's hall
Where his perfect innocence took the blame for all
Then hanging on a rugged cross, though he spoke not a word
In Heaven, all over Heaven, my name was heard.

Then I became his center of attention,
I was laying heavy on his heart
Though the soldiers tore his flesh in anger,
I'm the one who tore his world apart.
Way before he ever cried "It's finished."
Long before I ever bowed a knee,
About the time he cried "Father, forgive them"
Without a second thought, he thought of me.

UNDER CROSS EXAMINATION

Marty Funderburk, Steve Marshall, Ed Stivers

I dreamed my life was over, and I faced the judgment day,
I stood before the Father, not knowing what to say.
My life was like an open book laid out before the throne,
Where every thought and deed would certainly be known.

I pondered every hour, accounting for my days.
The years of faithful service and the times I went astray.
No righteousness to call my own, no goodness could I plead.
But then, the Son of God arose and testified for me.

Under cross-examination, this one called upon my name.
Under cross-examination, he is free from any blame.
When You look upon his life you'll see
The blood I shed at Calvary
Now his every sin is gone without a trace.
Under cross-examination, I rest my case.

God called no other witness, no one else need testify.
The blood of Christ that covered me could never be denied.
Justice met forgiveness when Jesus paid the cost.
My innocence was proven by examining the cross.

Under cross-examination, this one called upon my name.
Under cross-examination, he is free from any blame.
When You look upon his life you'll see
The blood I shed at Calvary
Now his every sin is gone without a trace.
Under cross-examination, I rest my case.

BOW THE KNEE

Ron Hamilton

What a privilege to come into God's presence,
Just to linger with the One who set me free.
As I lift my eyes and see His awesome glory,
I remember who He is and bow the knee.

Bow the knee, bow the knee,
He is King of all the ages, bow the knee!
God alone on His throne,
See Him high and lifted up and bow the knee!
Kneel before Him, all adore Him.
As you live to love Him more, bow the knee.

In His hand He holds the power of creation.
With His voice He spoke, and all things came to be.
Yet He hears each simple prayer I bring before Him
When I humbly seek His face and bow the knee.

Bow the knee, bow the knee,
He is King of all the ages, bow the knee!
God alone on His throne,
See Him high and lifted up and bow the knee!
Kneel before Him, all adore Him.
As you live to love Him more, bow the knee.

TO LIVE IS CHRIST

Author?

If I rise, let me rise on You
Not on all of my successes, my esteem or my pursuits
If I lose, let me lose my life
'Cause if I belong to Jesus, the flesh is crucified

For me to live is Christ
For me to live is Christ
For me to live is Christ, to die is gain

If I grow, let me grow in You
Wilt the seeds of wanting more
Ripping pride out by the roots
And if I'm still, let me hear You speak
Not the tone of my transgressions,
But the song of the Redeemed

For me to live is Christ
For me to live is Christ
For me to live is Christ, to die is gain

My great desire is to be with You
But this is the place You chose for me
This is the place You chose for me
To lift my cross and give everything
This is the time You gave to me
This is the time You gave to me

For me to live is Christ
For me to live is Christ
For me to live is Christ, to die is gain

HE STILL SAVES

Marty Funderburk and Steve Marshall 

When Jesus cried, “It is finished,’ 
Redemption’s work was done 
As forgiveness freely flowed from Calvary.
And that crimson stream that started 

On a hill so far away 
Still covers anyone who would believe.

He still saves! He still saves!
The precious blood of Jesus still washes sin away. 
He still saves! Jesus saves!
Death is still defeated. There is still an empty grave.
He still saves!


There is not a life so broken, 
So torn apart by sin,
That simple faith cannot forever change.
For the Lord of love and mercy 

Still offers saving grace 
To all who trust and call upon His name!

He still saves! He still saves!
The precious blood of Jesus still washes sin away. 
He still saves! Jesus saves!
Death is still defeated. There is still an empty grave.
He still saves!

JOY

Roger and Chelsea Bennett

Joy that sustains you when everything fails
Comes from the Father in Heaven
Joy that will lift you to Heavenly realms
Comes from the Father in Heaven

Joy – Heavenly joy, unspeakable joy
Joy – full of glory, Jesus is joy
Joy – wonderful joy, marvelous joy
Joy – oh, what a Savior, Jesus is joy

Jesus was hanging on Calvary's tree
Sent from the Father in Heaven.
He was dying so sinners like me could go free
A gift from the Father in Heaven.

If you are looking for this kind of joy
The gift has already been given
It's peace that the winds of the world can't destroy
Salvation has come down from Heaven

Joy – Heavenly joy, unspeakable joy
Joy – full of glory, Jesus is joy
Joy – wonderful joy, marvelous joy
Joy – oh, what a Savior, Jesus is joy

IF ONLY JUST A FEW

Author?

His hands were tied behind his back as he stood before the court,
The apostle Paul was facing death again;
Someone said, "This man has preached that Jesus Christ is Lord.
We say let the scourging now begin."
He felt his body tighten; the blood began to flow
And between the stripes, Paul just sang this song,

If only just a few believe, I will tell of Calvary
I will be a witness for the cross;
If only just a few are saved, I will go in Jesus' name
I will share my story with the lost.
If Heaven celebrates when just one lost soul prays through,
Then I'll give my all if for only just a few.

Paul remembered well the time when Timothy was saved
Just one out of all who heard the news
And for months across the little towns, preaching Jesus is the way
Some days, he convinced just one or two
Were they worth his suffering as the soldiers left him lay?
Through his tears, they could hear him say,

If only just a few believe, I will tell of Calvary
I will be a witness for the cross;
If only just a few are saved, I will go in Jesus' name
I will share my story with the lost.
If Heaven celebrates when just one lost soul prays through,
Then I'll give my all if for only just a few.

I may not see great numbers come to know the Lord,
But if I'll keep on working, great is my reward.

If only just a few believe, I will tell of Calvary
I will be a witness for the cross;
If only just a few are saved, I will go in Jesus' name
I will share my story with the lost.
If Heaven celebrates when just one lost soul prays through,
Then I'll give my all if for only just a few.

OH, WHAT A GLAD DAY

Author?

Sometimes I get weary of life's fleeting days
Where Heaven I long to behold
And through His great mercy and marvelous grace
I'll reach the blessed city of gold.

Oh, what a glad day
Will come in the sweet by and by.
When all of God's saints
Shall meet in that home in the sky.
Forever to stay
We'll be with our loved ones for e'er
Oh, what a glad day
A glad and eternal bright day.

When life here is ended and toiling is done
All heartaches will then pass away
When victory o'er death and the grave has been one
Twill be a most wonderful day.

Oh, what a glad day
Will come in the sweet by and by.
When all of God's saints
Shall meet in that home in the sky.
Forever to stay
We'll be with our loved ones for e'er
Oh, what a glad day
A glad and eternal bright day.

I'll meet with the saints on that heavenly shore
Where we shall be happy for e're
Up there in that land, we will part never more
When comes that eternal glad day

Oh, what a glad day
Will come in the sweet by and by.
When all of God's saints
Shall meet in that home in the sky.
Forever to stay
We'll be with our loved ones for e'er
Oh, what a glad day

GOD DID IT ALL

Rusty Golden and Dianne Wilkinson

How do we know who set the world in motion
Who put the stars in the sky
Who separated man from the ocean
Who taught the birds how to fly
There’s rhyme and there’s reason
For the times and the seasons
That there’s only one way to define
The source of it all can only be called divine

God did it all before there was time or space
He spoke and it was
What’s seen and what’s unseen all there in its place
By His Word, by His plan all because
Man’s wisdom will fail, God’s truth will prevail
Though the world should topple and fall
At the end, every man will declare, “God did it all”

How do we know that God’s crowning creation
One day would fall into sin
His Word tells it all and His plan for salvation
Grace offered time and time again
God sent His own Son here;
Redemption was won here
By blood streaming down from a cross
“It is finished,” He cried when He died
God did it all

God did it all before there was time or space
He spoke and it was
What’s seen and what’s unseen all there in its place
By His Word, by His plan all because
Man’s wisdom will fail, God’s truth will prevail
Though the world should topple and fall
At the end, every man will declare, “God did it all”

GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS

Thomas Chisholm

Great is Thy faithfulness, oh God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be.

Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

IT WON'T ALWAYS RAIN

Mark Bishop

There's an old, old story...everybody knows
'bout a man named Noah and the story goes,
That he built an ark...for a rainy day.
Soon the rain began and they all were saved.

Then for forty days..and for forty nights
They were so afraid...with no land in sight.
"How much longer will...we be lost at sea?"
Noah said, "I don't...know but I believe..."

 It won't always rain...you won't always find
Cold and cloudy days. Soon the sun will shine.
And the Lord will whisper to your troubled mind.
"It won't always rain...it won't always rain."

There are days I know...that inside my heart
Looks just like a storm...on a weather chart.
Cold and cloudy days...with a chance of pain.
And the tears that fall...like a summer rain.

So I fall to my knees...and I find my prayers
Lord, I still believe...that you're listening there.
When I ask for strength...to get through the day
That's when the forecast says...the Son is on His way

It won't always rain...you won't always find
Cold and cloudy days. Soon the sun will shine.
And the Lord will whisper to your troubled mind.
"It won't always rain...it won't always rain."

I hear a voice that's saying "peace be still...."
(Peace be still)
I feel the sunlight breaking over the hill

It won't always rain...you won't always find
Cold and cloudy days. Soon the sun will shine.
And the Lord will whisper to your troubled mind.
"It won't always rain...it won't always rain."

I KNOW HE HEARD MY PRAYER

V.B. Ellis

The clouds have passed away; I see the light of day,
The sun is shining through dispelling gloom with hallelujahs;
I know that this is real for in my heart I feel
That my Savior heard my earnest prayer.

I know He heard my prayer; He knows my every care,
He gives to me the blessed victory.
Oh yes, I feel Him now, my loyalty I vow,
I know the Lord has heard my prayer.

The Lord has heard my prayer, great joy is now my share,
Sweet heaven fills my soul; now I can go rejoicing on;
O, my friend, there's not a doubt,
Thank God, they're driven out
For my Savior heard my earnest prayer.

I know He heard my prayer; He knows my every care,
He gives to me the blessed victory.
Oh yes, I feel Him now, my loyalty I vow,
I know the Lord has heard my prayer.

When in the future days the fiery trials blaze
When Satan comes to me to take away my victory;
I can point him to the time when Heaven did shine
I can say He heard my earnest prayer.

I know He heard my prayer; He knows my every care,
He gives to me the blessed victory.
Oh yes, I feel Him now, my loyalty I vow,
I know the Lord has heard my prayer.

The enemy had said that my faith in God was dead
And if the way was rough, He did not care.
Praise God, it is not true,
He thrills me through and through
I know the Savior heard my prayer
I know He heard my prayer.

GRACE WILL ALWAYS BE GREATER THAN SIN

Barbara Huffman and Gary Casto

In holy pages this truth can be found
A promise to stand on when darkness abounds
Oh, right never loses, and wrong never wins
And grace will always be greater than sin

Grace will always be greater than sin
Calvary has proven it time and again
Whatever you’ve done
Wherever you’ve been
God’s grace will always be greater than sin

Broken and bruised from the choices you’ve made
Sin has a price, and so often you’ve paid
Oh, but Jesus is waiting
New hope is in Him
And grace will always be greater than sin

Grace will always be greater than sin
Calvary has proven it time and again
Whatever you’ve done
Wherever you’ve been
God’s grace will always be greater than sin

Grace, grace God’s grace
Grace that is greater than all my sin
Whatever you’ve done
Wherever you’ve been
God’s grace will always be greater than sin

STILL

Jim Brady, Tony Wood, Barry Weeks

Awaken to a dawn of uncertainty
Clouds of fear linger like the night
A day that feels so cold and dark and desperate
But I know where to find the Light
I pick up the timeless; the Truth that will remain
And read what will never change

Still….God is on His Throne; The Bible is His Word
The Gospel changes lives, And every prayer is heard
His plans could never fail; Not even one detail
His purpose will prevail
He was…He is…He will…Still

Into every life disappointments come
Sometimes they’re like a string of stormy days
We can learn to look beyond the moment
And see what’s yet to be with eyes of faith
When we look for the eternal
Hope rises like the sun
So trust no matter what’s to come

Still….God is on His Throne; The Bible is His Word
The Gospel changes lives, And every prayer is heard
His plans could never fail; Not even one detail
His purpose will prevail
He was…He is…He will…Still

Still He takes care of His children
And He inhabits their praise
Still He calls all men to trust Him
And still He’ll come again someday

Still….God is on His Throne; The Bible is His Word
The Gospel changes lives; Every prayer is heard
His plans could never fail; Not even one detail
His purpose will prevail
He was…He is…He will…Still
I’m holding to the Truth…..Still

PRAISE YOU

William and Gloria Gaither

There's no place where You're not there;
I'll never drift from Your love and care.
There's not a thing about me that You don't know.
The wings of the morning will take me to You;
The blackness of night, Your light will shine through;
You're already there no matter where I may go.
Even before I came to be,
Your loving eyes were looking at me;
You're even closer than the very breath I take.
Mother and father, more than a friend to me,
Beginning and ending and living of life to me,
The song I find myself singing when I awake.

So I will praise You!  Lord, I praise You!
Now I praise You for bearing me up
And giving me wings, for lifting my sights
To heavenly things, for being the songs
I can't help but sing--praise You!

Look at me, Lord, I'm open to You.
Do anything that You want me to do.
You know me even better than I know myself.
I'll not be afraid of what You can see
'Cause You know the person inside of me;
I won't even try to hide what You know so well.
Lord, just be patient with my mistakes;
I want to be Yours whatever it takes,
I've learned that life without You is no life at all,
Failures and talents and schemes I bring to You;
Aspirations and dreams I sing to You--
I'll just be here ready whenever You call.

So I will praise You!  Lord, I praise You!
Now I praise You for bearing me up
And giving me wings, for lifting my sights
To heavenly things, for being the songs
I can't help but sing--praise You!

IN THE MEANTIME

Author?

Looks like this won't be the day my prayer gets an answer.
The old me would've given up by now.
But I'll press on anyway, for I know that God is Faithful
And He's gonna make a way somehow
'Cause I know God is in control. He never makes mistakes.
He'll take care of this problem, no matter how long it takes.

In the meantime, I'll be thankful
For all the times He's answered me before.
In the meantime, I'll be peaceful,
Not anxious for anything the future has in store.
It's not easy waiting, but it's always worth the time,
Knowing that the answer is in better hands than mine.
I trust Him, so I'll praise Him
In the meantime.

This is not the first time I've waited for an answer.
Patience brings a perfect work from Him.
I place my life in His hands, so when I'm tempted to worry,
I reassure myself once again.
'Cause I know God is in control. He never makes mistakes.
He'll take care of this problem no matter how long it takes.

In the meantime, I'll be thankful
For all the times He's answered me before.
In the meantime, I'll be peaceful,
Not anxious for anything the future has in store.

Knowing that the answer is in better hands than mine.
I trust Him, so I'll praise Him
