TELL THE MOUNTAIN

Sue C. Smith, Lee Black, Kenna West

In the foothills of sorrow,
Looking up from the valley of fear,
You can see doubt off in the distance,
And you're about to lose heart right here
But don't ever give in; don't ever give up
God is with you, and you'll overcome.

The mountain will tell you
That you can't make it over;
It will try to convince you
That it's way too high;
Though you feel defeated,
Know that God keeps His promise;
So you tell the mountain
Just how big your God is.

Just try to remember
All the trials He's brought you through,
And when His power gave you strength for the journey
The very hour you needed it to,
So don't be discouraged 'cause time after time
God's never failed you, so go on and climb.

The mountain will tell you
That you can't make it over;
It will try to convince you
That it's way too high;
Though you feel defeated,
Know that God keeps His promise;
So you tell the mountain
Just how big your God is.

WHEN WE SEE CHRIST

Esther Kerr Rusthoi 

Oft times the day seems long, our trials hard to bear,
We're tempted to complain, to murmur and despair;
But Christ will soon appear to catch His bride away,
All tears forever over in God's eternal day.

It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
Life's trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
So bravely run the race till we see Christ.

Sometimes the sky looks dark with not a ray of light,
We're tossed and driven on, no human help in sight;
But there is one in heav'n who knows our deepest care,
Let Jesus solve your problem - just go to Him in pray'r.

It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
Life's trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
So bravely run the race till we see Christ.

Life's day will soon be o'er, all storms forever past,
We'll cross the great divide, to glory, safe at last;
We'll share the joys of heav'n - a harp, a home, a crown,
The tempter will be banished, we'll lay our burden down.

It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
Life's trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
So bravely run the race till we see Christ.

THE OTHER MIRACLES

Rodney Griffin

John was writing down what the Spirit told him to
A portion of the miracles of Jesus
He found his book was way too small to hold all the truths
There were so many other things that he could tell

And I wonder what the other miracles were
Was someone else set free?
Someone else like me?
If the world itself could not contain the stories
Of the ones He kept from harm
Then surely in my storm
There's another other miracle for me

This awesome God is limitless in power
Who else could make a blinded eye to see?
Yet, thousands more could tell of their encounter
Countless stories we will never get to read

And I wonder what the other miracles were
Was someone else set free?
Someone else like me?
If the world itself could not contain the stories
Of the ones He kept from harm
Then surely in my storm
There's another other miracle for me

If I only believe, only believe
All things are possible; they're possible
If the world itself could not contain the stories
Of the ones He kept from harm
Then surely in my storm
There's another other miracle for me

THE JUDGEMENT

Author Unknown

All is still, heaven is silent
As the mighty Judge ascends the throne.
The Book of Life is opened
As the countless souls begin to moan.
From the throne comes a voice like thunder
"Depart; I know you not.
For the names written in this book
Are the souls my blood has bought."

Faces turn as into that courtroom
Comes the very seed of sin.
He who was the saints' accuser
Must face the charges against him.
With the fury of all the ages
That demon voice begins to cry,
"It's not fair; I almost had you.
On Golgotha, I watched you die."


Then Satan begins to tremble
As his fate to him was known.
From the throne came the verdict,
"The lake of fire will be your home."

And I see every knee is bowing.
Every hand in honor is raised.
Every voice to Him is lifted,
"Thou art worthy; the Lamb be praised."

Angels standing at attention
As the redeemed begin to sing.
Heaven's choir resounds the anthem,
"You are our Savior, LORD, and King.
Thou art worthy, thou art worthy,
The Lamb be praised."

HE WILL CARRY YOU

Lee Black & Gina Boe

Do you ever find yourself asking God where He's been?
Ever get up out of bed saying, "I can't do this again"?
Have you ever been afraid of what tomorrow might bring?
And you're facing it alone--at least, that's what you think.
I can tell you after going through that valley
Even though I couldn't see it at the time
It was in my weakest moments that He held me
And I know you'll find. . .

He will carry you when you can't go on
He will be your strength when your strength is gone
He will lift you up; He will be enough to get you through.
When the road is rough, and you wanna quit
'Cause you think you've got nothing left to give
You can fall apart, fall into His arms
He will carry you.

When you get the kind of news that you hoped you'd never hear
When you're chasing down a dream just to watch it disappear
When somebody that you love turns and walks away
And they leave you standing there with shattered faith
You don't have to pick up all the broken pieces
You don't have to try and cover up the scars
You are loved, and You can always run to Jesus
Just as you are

He will carry you when you can't go on
He will be your strength when your strength is gone
He will lift you up; He will be enough to get you through.
When the road is rough, and you wanna quit
'Cause you think you've got nothing left to give
You can fall apart, fall into His arms
He will carry you.

His heart is never weary
No, He's never tired
Through the toughest fight
Through the longest night
Through the flood and through the fire

He will carry you when you can't go on
He will be your strength when your strength is gone
He will lift you up; He will be enough to get you through.
When the road is rough, and you wanna quit
'Cause you think you've got nothing left to give
You can fall apart, fall into His arms
He will carry you.

ONCE UPON A HILL

Ronny Hinson

Somebody wrote my life story
Though the ink never touched the writer's quill
Now in Heaven I'll live happy ever after
'Cause my life story started once upon a hill

Once upon a hill is all it took
From hidden shame, my hearts been changed
My life's an open book
It's never been a mystery how the fiction became real
'Cause my life story started once upon a hill

I've never laid eyes upon the Author
But it's clear to see He's laid His hand on me
My life story may not be a world's best seller
But they won't have to read between the lines to see

Once upon a hill is all it took
From hidden shame, my hearts been changed
My life's an open book
It's never been a mystery how the fiction became real
'Cause my life story started once upon a hill

THE PROMISE

Brian White & Don Poythress

I never said that I would give you silver or gold
Or that you would never feel the fire or shiver in the cold
But I did say you'd never walk through this world alone
And I did say, "Don't make this world your home"

I never said that fear wouldn't find you in the night
Or that loneliness was something you'd never have to fight
But I did say I'd be right there by your side
And I did say I'll always help you fight

'Cause you know I made a promise that I intend to keep
My grace will be sufficient in every time of need
My love will be the anchor that you can hold on to
This is the promise, this is the promise I've made to you

I never said that friends would never turn their backs on you
Or that the world around you wouldn't see you as a fool
But I did say like me you'll surely be despised
And I did say, "My ways confound the wise"

I didn't say you'd never taste the bitter kiss of death
Or have to walk through chilly Jordan to enter into rest
But I did say I'd be waiting right on the other side
And I did say I'll dry every tear you've cried

'Cause you know I made a promise that I've prepared a place
And someday sooner than you think you'll see me face to face
And you'll sing with the angels and a countless multitude
This is the promise, this is the promise I've made to you

So just keep on walking don't turn to the left or right
And in the midst of darkness, let this be your light
That hell can't separate us and you're gonna make it through
This is the promise, this is the promise I've made to you
Oh, this is the promise, this is the promise I've made to you

UNSINKABLE

Buddy Mullins & Mark Willet

I set out to sail this ocean
In my boat of pleasure and pride
Obsessed by foolish notion
That I could reach the other side
But now I'm treading the water
And I've already gone down twice
My boat's busy cruising the bottom
And I'm fighting for my life

Well, I only have two options
Swim or drink the ocean dry
As good as in my coffin
My life flashed before my eyes
But amidst the seen of sorrow
A vessel sailed my way
And as He pulled me from the bottom
I could here the Captain say,

"It's unsinkable, don't give it a thought
It's unthinkable even if we get caught
By the raging storms around us
Or in the wake of a hurricane
Through the winds, the waves, or thunder
This ship ain't going under
Sailing for the other side, unsinkable."

Many boats have hit the water
Of every shape and every size
Thinking they were smarter
But finding out they weren't so wise
'Cause a ship can't stand the pressure
It's been this way before
And with a power beyond measure
It can weather any storm.

"It's unsinkable, don't give it a thought
It's unthinkable even if we get caught
By the raging storms around us
Or in the wake of a hurricane
Through the winds, the waves, or thunder
This ship ain't going under
Sailing for the other side, unsinkable."

LOVE CAME CALLING

 Wayne Haun and Joel Lindsey

On the stormy sea of Galilee
When He said, "Peter, come to me"
He was calling; Love came calling
To the dead man, Lazarus, in the grave
He came much to late to save
He was calling; Love came  calling

Love came calling like a warm embrace
Every doubt and fear replaced
He was calling
Love came calling like a faithful friend
It will never be the same again
He was calling; Love came calling

She had lived a life of such regret
Beyond the line of grace and yet
He was calling; Love came calling
Though her veil of tears and bitter pain
She heard his voice so clear and plain
He was calling; Love came calling

Love came calling like a warm embrace
Every doubt and fear replaced
He was calling
Love came calling like a faithful friend
It will never be the same again
He was calling; Love came calling
Long before I ever knew the sound

Of what could turn my life around
He was calling; Love came calling
But when I heard the brilliant song
Of freedom where my heart belongs
He was calling; Love came calling

Yes, He was calling
Love came calling

GUARD YOUR HEART

Richard Free and Marty Funderburk

So many distractions calling us away
So many temptations leading us astray
And our affections are so suddenly 
Drawn in what will suddenly 
Leave us cold and utterly alone
Far from home

Guard your heart
Guard your heart
Lock the door and hide the key
From the enemy
Guard your heart
Guard your heart
God saved you and set you apart 
So believe and don’t forget whose you are
Guard your heart

Don’t think for a moment
That you can play the game
Get close to the fire and you're gonna feel the flame
So get as far away as you can get 

From the things that bring regret
Take hold of Christ and never let Him go
Don’t let go

Guard your heart
Guard your heart
Lock the door and hide the key
From the enemy
Guard your heart
Guard your heart
God saved you and set you apart 
So believe and don’t forget whose you are
Guard your heart


Like the soldier in a battle for his life
Run from the wrong 
Run to the right
No on is invincible
You gotta watch and pray 

Every hour of every day

Guard your heart
Guard your heart
Lock the door and hide the key
From the enemy
Guard your heart
Guard your heart
God saved you and set you apart 
So believe and don’t forget whose you are
Guard your heart

WRITTEN IN RED

Gordon Jensen

In letters of crimson, God wrote His love
On a hillside so long, long ago;
For you and for me Jesus died,
And love's greatest story was told.

I love you, I love you
That's what Calvary said;
I love you, I love you,
I love you, written in red.

Down through the ages, God wrote His love
With the same hands that suffered and bled;
Giving all that He had to give,
A message so easily read.

I love you, I love you,
That's what Calvary said;
I love you, I love you,
I love you, written in red.

Oh, precious is the flow, that makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus.

I love you, I love you
That's what Calvary said;
I love you, I love you,
I love you, written in red.

THE GREATEST LOVE STORY

James Payne and Rick Goodman

Before salvation, in a far and distant land
Two rusty nails pierced two precious hands
There a man named Jesus for silver was sold
On an old, rugged cross the great love story was told.

Oh, oh what a story.
"I love you" was written in blood.
Rivers of mercy were flowing
Between two thieves was the Son.
The ransom was paid for every man's soul.
On an old, rugged cross the greatest love story was told.

He cried "It is finished," and the world heard the sound
Marking the beginning as His blood touched the ground.
A master plan for living on mount Calvary was made.
Such expression of love is salvation today.

Oh, oh what a story.
"I love you" was written in blood.
Rivers of mercy were flowing
From the matchless fountain of love.
The ransom was paid for every man's soul.
On an old, rugged cross the greatest love story was told.

LOOK FOR ME AT JESUS' FEET

Squire Parsons

If I leave this world of sorrow
Sometime before you do
Just look for me in Heaven
And we’ll talk the ages through
But if at first, you fail to see me
Let me tell you where I’ll be
I’ll be thanking Christ, my Savior
For saving a wretch like me.

But if you should reach that city
Before my time has come
Perhaps you’d like to greet me
When my race down here is run.
Just wait for I’ll soon be coming
Across life’s ebbing sea
And I’ll tell you now, dear loved one
Just where to wait for me.

Don’t look ‘neath the gates of pearl
Don’t look on the streets of gold
Don’t look by the walls of jasper
Nor among the many sights untold.
For I’ve been longing and I’ve been waiting,
For the Precious, Holy One to see
There I’ll be through the countless ages,
Look for me at Jesus’ feet.

ROSES WILL BLOOM AGAIN

Marcia B. Henry

I planted a little rose bush, I tended it with care,
Its buds began to blossom; their fragrance filled the air
But when winter came it withered; the petals drooped and fell to the ground,
My heart sank as it faded, but I'd forgotten who had made it.

Roses will bloom again; just wait and see
Don't mourn what might have been
Only God knows how and when that
Roses will bloom again.

Rose was his only sweetheart, a loving wife for forty years.
Cherished every day they had and held memories dear
He never dreamed he'd bury love and go on to live alone,
But as he lay his Rose to rest, he looked to heaven and tried his best
To believe that . . .

Roses will bloom again; just wait and see
Don't mourn what might have been
Only God knows how and when that
Roses will bloom again.

The precious Rose of Sharon, broken and bruised in cruel shame,
Stained on the cross of Calvary, so that men might be saved,
Satan cheered as He died, while Mary and the others cried,
Then God raised Him up from death's sleep and kept a promise only He could keep.

Roses will bloom again; just wait and see
Don't mourn what might have been
Only God knows how and when that
Roses will bloom again.

LOVE COVERS ALL SIN

Author?

If you'll recall the wandering son,
Who left his father's home.
He had spent all,
Yet he found himself alone.
And when he came back home again
And told his father he had sinned,
He found that love covers all sin.

Love covers all sin.
Just kneel at the cross, where you new life begins.
It doesn't matter what you've done, or where you have been.
For love covers all sin.

See Jesus hanging on a tree,
No greater love could ever be
Than a Man lay down His life for you and me.
That river flowing from the cross,
So full of love, it paid the cost.
For love covers all sin.

Love covers all sin.
Just kneel at the cross, where you new life begins.
It doesn't matter what you've done, or where you have been.
For love covers all sin.

FOR NOW, GETHSEMANE

Kevin Stokes and Sue C. Smith

I long to walk in Eden, with trees in bloom,
And where the air is sweet.
To spend my days in sunshine, beside the brook
Where You will meet with me.
But I have heard you calling, and in obedience, I go
To another garden whose history I know.

Lord, for now, it’s Gethsemane.
For now, that’s where You're bringing me,
To a place whose agony You’ve known
So because Your will is clear,
I’ll trust you and I’ll stay right here.
If Eden calls tomorrow,
Then those pathways I will roam
But for now Gethsemane is home.

I won’t compare my suffering with all the pain
I know that You endure.
Yet You have used this garden to teach me how
Surrender makes me Yours .
So strengthen and sustain me, and I will face whatever comes.
I know that Eden's waiting when this night is done.

Lord, for now, it’s Gethsemane.
For now, that’s where You're bringing me,
To a place whose agony You’ve known
So because Your will is clear,
I’ll trust you and I’ll stay right here.
If Eden calls tomorrow,
Then those pathways I will roam
But for now Gethsemane is home.

Where you walk with me and You talk with me,
And you tell me I’m Your own.

Lord, for now, it’s Gethsemane.
For now, that’s where You're bringing me,
To a place whose agony You’ve known
So because Your will is clear,
I’ll trust you and I’ll stay right here.
If Eden calls tomorrow,
Then those pathways I will roam
But for now Gethsemane is home.

Take My Hand, Precious Lord

Thomas Dorsey

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on, let me stand
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home

When my way grows drear
Precious Lord, linger near
When my life is almost gone
Hear my cry, hear my call
Hold my hand lest I fall
Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home

When the darkness appears
And the night draws near
And the day is past and gone
At the river, I stand
Guide my feet, hold my hand
Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on, let me stand
I'm tired, I'm weak, I'm lone
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home

THE WARRIOR IS A CHILD

Twila Paris

Lately I've been winning battles left and right
But even winners can get wounded in the fight
People say that I'm amazing
Strong beyond my years
But they don't see inside of me
I'm hiding all the tears

They don't know that I go running home when I fall down
They don't know who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and cry for just a while
'Cause deep inside this armor
The warrior is a child

Unafraid because His armor is the best
But even soldiers need a quiet place to rest
People say that I'm amazing
Never face retreat
But they don't see the enemies
That lay me at His feet

They don't know that I go running home when I fall down
They don't know who picks me up when no one is around 
I drop my sword and and cry for just a while 
'Cause deep inside this armor 
The warrior is a child

JESUS IS PRECIOUS

Bennie S. Triplett

When I feel discouraged, forsaken, and forgotten
Jesus is precious to me.
In all my conditions, he is my great physician.
Jesus is precious to me.

Jesus is precious, he is so precious.
Jesus is precious to me.
And he is my Savior, he's Lord and my Master.
Jesus is precious to me.

He's comfort in sorrow, He's the only hope for tomorrow.
Jesus is precious to me.
He's all that I pray for, what more could I ask for?
Jesus is precious to me.

Jesus is precious, he is so precious.
Jesus is precious to me.
And he is my Savior, he's Lord and my Master.
Jesus is precious to me.

It's not earthly treasures
And it's not worldly pleasures
That seem so important to me.
And though I prize friendship,
And I thank God for my kinship,
Still there's no one so precious to me.

Jesus is precious, he is so precious.
Jesus is precious to me.
And he is my Savior, he's Lord and my Master.
Jesus is precious to me.
