GOD SAW A CROSS

Rodney Griffin

When Adam saw his wife sin in the garden
In the distance, God saw a cross
When Cain killed his brother God was watching
And God saw a cross
When Moses slew the Egyptian man in anger
God saw a cross
And when David chose Bathsheba over honor
God knew there had to be a cross

God saw a cross being raised on the horizon
God saw His son being slain for one and all
God saw His blood being shed for my redemption
For every fall God saw a cross

When I was born the world just saw a sinner
Oh but thanks to Jesus God saw a cross
And when I first rejected His great offer
I’m so thankful God still saw a cross
And with each wicked choice I walked in darkness
My God saw a cross
So blinded by my sin, my soul was helpless
With eyes of mercy God still saw a cross

God saw a cross being raised on the horizon
God saw His son being slain for one and all
God saw His blood being shed for my redemption
For every fall God saw a cross

And when I finally gave my heart to Jesus
From that moment of time until forever
When God sees me He only sees the cross

God saw a cross being raised on the horizon
God saw His son being slain for one and all
God saw His blood being shed for my redemption
For every fall God saw a cross

HALLELUJAH, PRAISE THE LAMB

Dawn Thomas, Pam Thum and Gary McSpaden

From the moment man first disobeyed the Father
We were then held captive by our sin
The law of God demanded a sacrifice
Restoring to Himself His own again

So the Lamb, His only Son, was freely offered
Atonement for our sins forever made
The innocent and holy, still God and God only
Would ransom and redeems us back again

Hallelujah, Praise the Lamb
Hallelujah, Praise the Lamb
My heart sings his praise again
Hallelujah, Praise the Lamb

So to the cross they carried him
With all our guilt and all our sin
The Lamb of God was slain for our transgressions
And on the cross those nail pierced hands
Reached up to God and down to man
And just as if I'd never sinned
He took me in his arms
Embracing me He willingly forgave

For mercy, grace, and love that knows no bounds
Though guilty and condemned, I now am free
Forever I'm forgiven, for Christ the Lord is risen
And risen with Him we shall one day be

Hallelujah, Praise the Lamb
Hallelujah, Praise the Lamb
My heart sings his praise again
Hallelujah, Praise the Lamb

PRAISE YOU IN THIS STORM

Mark Hall


I was sure by now,God,
That You would have reached down
And wiped our tears away,
Stepped in and saved the day.
But once again, I say, "Amen,"
And it's still raining.
As the thunder rolls,
I barely hear You whisper through the rain,
"I'm with you,"
And as Your mercy falls,
I raise my hands and praise
The God who gives and takes away.

And I'll praise You in this storm,
And I will lift my hands,
For You are who You are,
No matter where I am.
And every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand.
You never left my side,
And though my heart is torn,
I will praise You in this storm.

I remember when I stumbled in the wind,
You heard my cry to You
And raised me up again.
My strength is almost gone. How can I carry on
If You're not here with me?
And as the thunder rolls,
I barely hear You whisper through the rain,
"I'm with you."
And as Your mercy falls,
I raise my hands and praise
The God who gives and takes away.

And I'll praise You in this storm,
And I will lift my hands,
For You are who You are,
No matter where I am.
And every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand.
You never left my side,
And though my heart is torn,
I will praise You in this storm.

I lift my eyes onto the hills,
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.
I lift my eyes onto the hills,
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.

And I'll praise You in this storm,
And I will lift my hands,
For You are who You are,
No matter where I am.
And every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand.
You never left my side,
And though my heart is torn,
I will praise You in this storm.

THROUGH ALL OF IT

Molly Reed and Ben Glover

There are days I've taken more than I can give
And there are choices that I made that I wouldn't make again
I've had my share of laughter, of tears and troubled times
This is has been the story of my life

I have won, and I have lost
I got it right sometimes, but sometimes I did not
Life's been a journey; I've seen joy, I've seen regret
Oh, and You have been my God through all of it

You were there when it all came down on me
And I was blinded by my fear and I struggled to believe
But in those unclear moments, You were the one keeping me strong
This is how my story's always gone

I have won, and I have lost
I got it right sometimes, but sometimes I did not
Life's been a journey; I've seen joy, I've seen regret
Oh, and You have been my God through all of it
Through all of it

And this is who You are
More constant than the stars up in the sky
All these years of our lives I,
I look back and I see You
Right now I still do
And I'm always going to

I have won, and I have lost
I got it right sometimes, but sometimes I did not
Life's been a journey; I've seen joy, I've seen regret
Oh, and You have been my God through all of it

I GO TO THE ROCK

Dottie Rambo

Where can I turn
When there’s no one else I can turn to
Who am I going to talk to
When nobody wants to listen
Who am I going to lean on
When there’s no foundation stable
I go to the Rock I know that’s able
Goin’ to the Rock


I’m going to the Rock of my salvation
Going to the Stone that the builders rejected
Running to the Mountain, and the Mountain stands by me
The earth all around me is sinking sand
But on Jesus the solid Rock I stand
When I need a shelter
When I need a friend
I go to the Rock


Where can I hide
Till the storms have all passed over
Where am I going to run to
When the winds of sorrow threaten
Is there a refuge
In those times of great tribulation
When my soul needs consolation
I’m going to the Rock


I’m going to the Rock of my salvation
Going to the Stone that the builders rejected
Running to the Mountain, and the Mountain stands by me
The earth all around me is sinking sand
But on Jesus the solid Rock I stand
When I need a shelter
When I need a friend
I go to the Rock

I'VE READ THE BACK OF THE BOOK

Roger Bennett

I've been readin' in the Bible,
'Bout the ending of the age.
And one thing that's for certain,
It grows closer every day.
But I am not concerned about,
The way it's gonna end
'Cause I've read the back of the book and we win.

I've read the back of the book and we win,
No more livin' in darkness;
We'll be living at home with Him.
You see there's no need to worry about it
If you're born again.
I've read the back of the book and we win.


Now we all wanna be winners,
In the games of life that we play.
And friends, since I'm a sinner,
I've already lost the race.
But Jesus blood can take my sin,
And throw it in the deep blue sea.
(Throw it in the deep blue sea)
He can put an end to my last place living,
Give me the victory.
Now I can sing. . .


I've read the back of the book and we win,
No more livin' in darkness;
We'll be living at home with Him.
You see there's no need to worry about it
If you're born again.
I've read the back of the book and we win.

MIDNIGHT CRY

Greg & Chuck Day

I hear the sound of a mighty rushing wind
And it’s closer now than it’s ever been
I can almost hear the trumpet
As Gabriel sounds the call
At the midnight cry,
We’ll be going home

When Jesus steps out on a cloud
To call His children
The dead in Christ shall rise
To meet Him in the air
And then those that remain
Shall be quickly changed
At the midnight cry
When Jesus comes again

I look around me
I see prophecy fulfilling
And signs of the times
They’re appearing everywhere
I can almost hear the Father, as He says,
"Son, go get My children"
And at the midnight cry,
The Bride of Christ will rise

When Jesus steps out on a cloud
To call His children
The dead in Christ shall rise
To meet Him in the air
And then those that remain
Will be quickly changed
At the midnight cry,
When Jesus comes again.

MIRACLE IN ME

Phil and Carolyn Cross

To be there when the Savior,
Spoke with a great command;
And to witness in a wonder,
Of His wonder working hand;
No miracle has caught my eyes,
To cause my heart to see;
But by faith I'm led to realize,
There's a miracle in me.

I have never seen the thousands fed,
Or the blind made to see;
I have never watched him raise the dead,
But I know when He lifted me;
It's a wonder right before my eyes,
Close enough to see;
In my heart is where this wonder lies,
There's a miracle in me.

If we have a faith that's measured,
By the smallest mustard seed;
All our mountains will be mastered,
By the Master of all our needs;
And if we have a child-like trust,
He said, He'll do the greatest things;
He will heal the sick, He will raise up the dead,
Be a miracle in me.

And I have never seen the thousands fed,
Or the blind made to see;
I have never watched him raise the dead,
But I know when He lifted me;
It's a wonder right before my eyes,
Close enough to see;
In my heart is where this wonder lies,
There's a miracle in me.

GRACE SAYS

Author Unknown

I’m always living with a struggle,
It’s part of my humanity.
Something within demands perfection,
And yet it’s always out of reach.
How can I cope with expectations
Like every day is another test?
What if there’s really only mercy,
For those who always do their best?

Grace says, “Come and rest beside me.
I don’t have to be convinced,
That when you've given in to failure
You’ll try again.”
Grace says, “You cannot surprise me,
No matter what you do.
And when you least deserve me,”
Grace says, “I’ll be here for you.”

Grace will quietly remind me
Of people it has known and loved.
How every one of them was helpless,
If not for grace and what it does.
Grace says, “Right from the beginning,
Before you knew that it was me,
I have covered you so often,
So you can trust that I won’t leave.”

Grace says, “Come and rest beside me.
I don’t have to be convinced,
That when you've given in to failure
You’ll try again.”
Grace says, “You cannot surprise me,
No matter what you do.
And when you least deserve me,”
Grace says, “I’ll be here for you.
I’ll be here for you.”

A GREATER YES

Marcia Henry

It starts with a desire, planted deep within your heart
You pray in faith, and wait for God to move
Time passes and you wonder
Did He hear me when I called?
Should I even have prayed that prayer at all?

You never pray a prayer, your Father will not answer
He can't ignore His child's earnest request
While you're waiting and believing
For what you thought was best
Trust God, if He says, "No"….. you're still blessed
There must be a greater yes

There comes a time when child-like faith
Must graduate to trust
Trials come and you're convinced you're on your own
But the Teacher's often silent
During the hardest test
But He'll answer when it's time with what is best

You never pray a prayer, your Father will not answer
He can't ignore His child's earnest request
While you're waiting and believing
For what you thought was best
Trust God, if He says, "No"….. you're still blessed
There must be a greater yes

Sometimes God will answer - just like we prayed
Then other times what's on His mind
Is a better plan, another way, a greater yes

You never pray a prayer, your Father will not answer
He can't ignore His child's earnest request
While you're waiting and believing
For what you thought was best
Trust God, if He says, "No"….. you're still blessed
There must be a greater yes

I CHOOSE

Rodney Griffin

Master, may I be so honest?
Could I admit the way I feel?
I'm hurting, it seems that you've forsaken,
And I wonder, 'Is your love for me still real?'
Though my friends think that I am happy,
Unaffected by this trial,
They can't see the pain I'm hiding
Just underneath my smile.
Master, I can't live this way anymore,
So today I make my choice.

I choose to believe that You are faithful,
Any my heart is in Your hands,
And this mystery that I face today
Is part of a greater plan.
I choose not to be discouraged
When the sun will not break through.
I have the choice of trusting You,
So, Lord, this is what I choose.

I know this road will not be easy,
And I know I'll have my weaker days,
And Satan will tell me I don't mean it
When I say, "I'll trust God all the way."
But that really doesn't matter.
I refuse to hear him out.
With my faith, I'll find the power
That will overcome all doubt.
Lord, I've never felt so strong
As when I'm resting in Your arms.

I choose to believe that You are faithful,
Any my heart is in Your hands,
And this mystery that I face today
Is part of a greater plan.
I choose not to be discouraged
When the sun will not break through.
I have the choice of trusting You,
So, Lord, this is what I choose.

BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD

Matt and Beth Redman

Blessed Be Your Name
In the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name

Blessed Be Your name
When I'm found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed Be Your name

Every blessing You pour out
I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Blessed be Your name
When the sun's shining down on me
When the world's 'all as it should be'
Blessed be Your name

Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

Every blessing You pour out
I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name

AS WE SPEAK

Rodney Griffin

I enjoy our talks; I love to worship
I long to forget it all and lay back in His arms
Seems everybody's busy, so busy working
They're missing all the blessings from just talking with the Lord.

'Cause as we speak, I feel Him holding me
As we speak, there's overwhelming peace
My mind can't seem to fathom how much love He has for me
So He's trying to explain it as we speak.

I still get lost in the darkness
I know I'm saved, but I don't feel it anymore
With guilty heart, I plead forgiveness
Then I hear the voice that comforts and restores.

And as we speak, I feel Him holding me
As we speak, there's overwhelming peace
My mind can't seem to fathom how much love He has for me
So He's trying to explain it as we speak.

I THINK I'LL READ IT AGAIN

Sandy Knight

Sometimes I get so tangled up in those blessed pages,
How I'm gonna rest forever in the Rock of Ages.
How I'm gonna live and sing and shout a million years,
And hear Him say, "You've made it home, Here's a crown of life to call your own."
Think I'll read it again and let it bless my soul.

I think I'll read it again and see how high I can fly.
I think I'll read it again, and how my feet are gonna rise.
I think I'll read it again--the mighty book of Revelation.
It's the only one I know for certain, Only one that predicts my future.
I think I'll read it again and let it bless my soul.

Some read of how ol' Satan's days already have been numbered,
How one day in a darkened pit a thousand years he'll tumble.
But in another place there'll be a mighty celebration,
It's in the New Jerusalem, we'll be rejoicing with the Lamb.
I think I'll read it again and let it bless my soul.

Now that's not all, there's even more there in those blessed pages.
Satan and his wicked crowd will burn throughout the ages.
There's more good news, I'm telling you, oh how I love to tell it!
We'll all go sailing into home and live forever with the Lamb.
I think I'll read it again and let it bless my soul.

I think I'll read it again and see how high I can fly.
I think I'll read it again, and how my feet are gonna rise.
I think I'll read it again--the mighty book of Revelation.
It's the only one I know for certain, Only one that predicts my future.
I think I'll read it again and let it bless my soul.

ALPHA AND OMEGA

I heard a great voice out of heaven saying
Behold the tabernacle of God is with men
He shall dwell with them, and they shall be His people
And Almighty God will be with them

He shall wipe away all tears from their eyes
There shall be no more death
Neither sorrow, nor crying, and no more pain
The former things are all passed away

He that sat upon the throne said, "Behold,
I make all things new"
He said unto me, "Write these words
For they are faithful and true"

And it is done; It is done
It is done; It is done

He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End
The Son of God, the King of Kings, Lord of lords, He's Everything
Messiah, Jehovah, The Prince of Peace is He
The Son of Man, Seed of Abraham, Second Person in the Trinity

He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End

BLESS YOUR HOLY NAME AGAIN

Daryl K. Williams

I could ask you for a miracle; You know I stand in need
I could seek Your hand to move and touch my family
But I’ll push aside these temporary trials that I face
Lord, I just want to bless You with my praise

Lord, I’ve come to bless Your holy name again
Just once more before I say “Amen”
You’re my Jesus, my Redeemer, my Savior and my friend
Lord, I’ve come to bless your holy name again

I could never count how many ways You’ve made my life complete
Lord, Your mercy is the reason why my spirit sings
Though my words could never fully tell the story of your grace
I just love to rest in Your embrace

Lord, I’ve come to bless Your holy name again
Just once more before I say “Amen”
You’re my Jesus, my Redeemer, my Savior and my friend
