COME AND SEE

Rodney Birch

She was twelve years old, the Bible said
When life just up and gave her away
In the hands of death, she reached for life
Her mother wept, her father cried... "She’s dead"
Jesus wrote a different story
Another chance for God to receive glory
He woke her up and took her by the hand
Restored to her, life again
And this is all they heard the young girl say,

"Come and see... what Jesus did
When who I was... met who He is
Come and behold... so you’ll believe
Don’t take my word... just come and see"

Once again, death came for life
And left behind a trail of broken tears
Sickness came to Lazarus’ life
And empty tomb, his body soon would fill
So Jesus came, and Jesus wept
They said, "Come, see our brother in the grave"
A stone was rolled, a prayer was prayed
Come forth rang out, death ran away
Belief was born as faith stood to say

"Come and see... what Jesus did
When who I was... met who He is
Come and behold... so you’ll believe
Don’t take my word... just come and see"

AIN'T GOD GOOD?

Author?

For forty long years God's people journeyed in the wilderness
Searching for canaan, that blessed promised land
They never went too hungry, nor they never got too thirsty
But the more that God kept blessing them, the more they would complain

Ain't God good to give us so many blessings?
Undeserving, that's what we are.
We ought to thank Him, love and praise Him
A little more today, and a whole lot more tomorrow.

In the time that we live, so many are unthankful
And any more they fail to see that God has given all
Never having time for God, they're always busy working
To pay for cars, new homes, tvs', and carpets wall to wall

Ain't God good to give us so many blessings?
Undeserving, that's what we are.
We ought to thank Him, love and praise Him
A little more today, and a whole lot more tomorrow.

LOOKING FOR A CITY

W. Oliver Cooper and Marvin P. Dalton

Here among the shadows in a lonely land,
We're a band of pilgrims on the move;
Burdened down with sorrows, shunned on every hand,
Looking for a city built above.

Looking for a city, where we'll never die,
There the sainted millions, never say goodbye,
There we'll meet our Savior, and our loved ones too,
Come O Holy Spirit, all our hopes renew.

Here in disappointment we so sadly roam,
Friends no longer speak one word of love;
O we have found contentment, Jesus promised us a home,
And I'm looking for a city built above.

Looking for a city, where we'll never die,
There the sainted millions, never say goodbye,
There we'll meet our Savior, and our loved ones too,
Come O Holy Spirit, all our hopes renew.

In this land of dangers going here and there
Trusting in the blessed Saviors love;
Tho' we may be strangers, in this world of care,
Looking for a city built above.

Looking for a city, where we'll never die,
There the sainted millions, never say goodbye,
There we'll meet our Savior, and our loved ones too,
Come O Holy Spirit, all our hopes renew.

MEANWHILE BACK AT THE CROSS

The devil laughed and said, "I’ve won
God has lost his only Son
The brightest star no longer shines
Finally, this world is mine."
Then he gathered all his demons near
He said, "We have conquered love with fear."

Meanwhile, back at the cross
All is not lost
Forgiveness is bought with each drop of his blood
It falls to the ground
Mercy abounds
As his mother, Mary’s, tears fall down
To see her precious son pay the cost

The devil said "We’ll use their pride;
We’ll attack them from inside
Fill their hearts with vanity
Til their differences are all they’ll see
Black and white, rich and poor
To justify their holy war."

 Meanwhile, back at the cross
All is not lost
Forgiveness is bought with each drop of his blood
It falls to the ground
Mercy abounds
As his mother, Mary’s, tears fall down
To see her precious son pay the cost

Take a look around
Turn on the evening news
The devil said,"There’s no way I’m gonna lose.
Hate is everywhere;
Love cannot be found
It took me two thousand years,
But it’s almost over now

Meanwhile, back at the cross
All is not lost
Forgiveness is bought with each drop of his blood
It falls to the ground
Mercy abounds
As his mother, Mary’s, tears fall down
To see her precious son pay the cost
At the cross

SPIRIT OF BROKENNESS

Rodney Griffin

I remember the night so long ago,
The first time I called Your name;
Empty and broken, ashamed of my sin,
I asked if this sinner You'd save.
But the cares of life have darkened the light,
And I feel like I'm drifting away.
So break me, mold me, cleanse me, then hold me,
I want to be near You today.

Lord, give me a spirit of brokenness,
Like You gave when I first called Your name.
And replace all my pride with humility,
Lord, a broken, willing vessel I'll be.

I never set out to drift into sin,
My intentions are never to stray;
But my flesh is weak, and I'm so prone to fall,
Like a child I go my own way;
'Til I hear Your cry from deep down inside,
Saying, "Go back to Calvary again.
There you'll see my flesh opened and my spirit broken,
Then surely your drifting will end."

Lord, give me a spirit of brokenness,
Like You gave when I first called Your name.
And replace all my pride with humility,
Lord, a broken, willing vessel I'll be.

UNDESERVED

Sheryl Farris 

He was sinless yet betrayed and denied,
Bound and so beaten, He was hard to recognize.
Bloody and swollen, the crown of thorns upon His brow,
It wasn’t fair, so undeserved.
Every breath He took just added to His pain,
Nailed to that cross, oh it seemed He died in vain,
The spotless Lamb of God, dying all alone,
It wasn’t fair, so undeserved.

So undeserved. This is not the way it should have been.
Much more extreme and so hard to comprehend,
Why He would die to cleanse the wickedness of man.
He died for all so that all might live,
So undeserved, so undeserved.

I am a sinner but I have been redeemed,
With blood He bought me. Yes, I belong to Him.
I wandered in sin, but He reached out and took me in,
It isn’t fair, so undeserved.
I was guilty, but He paid my penalty,
I was in bondage, but by His power I am free.
I stand amazed, walking in His grace,
It isn’t fair, so undeserved.

So undeserved. This is not the way it should have been.
Much more extreme and so hard to comprehend,
Why He would die to cleanse the wickedness of man.
He died for all so that all might live,
So undeserved, so undeserved.

FOR ALL HE'S DONE

Chris Allman

Every morning when I wake to see the sun
I can't help but think about the Lord
And all the things He's done
He meets my every need
You know He's been so good to me
And I can't help but praise the Lord for all He's done.

For all He's done
I'm gonna lift my hands and praise Him
For all He's done
I'll try to live my life to please Him
Even though I don't deserve to live
My life has just begun
And I can't help but praise the Lord for all He's done.

There are many things that I could praise God for
And if I started now, until I die
There'd still be many more
If I could mention only one
I'd have to thank Him for His Son
Now that's enough to praise the Lord for all He's done.

For all He's done
I'm gonna lift my hands and praise Him
For all He's done
I'll try to live my life to please Him
Even though I don't deserve to live
My life has just begun
And I can't help but praise the Lord for all He's done.

OUT OF MY DARKNESS

Roger Bennett

Out of my darkness, Jesus' blood has won the fight
Into His likeness, what a wonderful sight.
Making my way into His kingdom so bright
Out of my darkness and into His light

Stumbling in darkness I was bound up in sin
Constantly losing the battle within
But what a great transformation, oh, the glory did roll
On that wondrous day my name was added to the roll

Then I came out of my darkness, Jesus' blood has won the fight
Into His likeness, what a wonderful sight.
Making my way into His kingdom so bright
Out of my darkness and into His light

Long ago and far away a tomb was occupied
The victim of a cruel death was tightly sealed inside
But then the Victim turned to Victor when the stone was rolled away
He stepped outside, the darkness died, His light remains today.

Out of my darkness, Jesus' blood has won the fight
Into His likeness, what a wonderful sight.
Making my way into His kingdom so bright
Out of my darkness and into His light

HIDE ME BEHIND THE CROSS

Rebecca J. Peck & Angelina McKeithen

Lord as I seek to serve You,
May You find in me what's pleasing to Your heart.
I leave my will at Calvary,
Taking on a nature humbled by Your scars.
For I know it's only through Your love,
That who I am is hidden by Your grace.
Let my desires be overshadowed,
As I recall the purpose of that place.

Hide me behind the cross,
Where my gains become as loss.
And only Your glory is in view.
Your power will be revealed
The more that I am concealed.
Hide me behind the cross
So the world sees only You.

If I rely on my strength
To be a source of hope for those in need,
The only profit I would gain
Would be the empty honor of my deeds.
But with all of self behind Your cross,
The splendor of Your love stands free to shine.
Illuminating with Your power,
Reaching souls so You alone are glorified.

Hide me behind the cross,
Where my gains become as loss.
And only Your glory is in view.
Your power will be revealed
The more that I am concealed.
Hide me behind the cross
So the world sees only You.

HE ALREADY SEES

Author?

When the storm raged about them
The disciples were afraid
For the waves were high and the ship was tossed
They could not find their way
Then they awoke the Master
Saying, "Lord, please save us now."
He rebuked the winds, and the sea grew calm
And they all wondered how

God sees the storm from the other side
He knows the lessons learned
And just beyond the clouds He sees clear skies
He speaks peace to the raging storm
When peace cannot be found
He already sees the rainbow
When we see only clouds

Like the man on the sea did
I have called on God in prayer
When it seemed to me all hope was gone
And in my deep despair
I remembered what the Lord said
When He calmed that troubled sea
And I know once more how He sees the storm
And peace floods over me

God sees the storm from the other side
He knows the lessons learned
And just beyond the clouds He sees clear skies
He speaks peace to the raging storm
When peace cannot be found
He already sees the rainbow
When we see only clouds

And when the storms of life come crashing in and trouble me
I can feel God's arms around me and He whispers,  "Let it be, Let it be"

God sees the storm from the other side
He knows the lessons learned
And just beyond the clouds He sees clear skies
He speaks peace to the raging storm
When peace cannot be found
He already sees the rainbow
When we see only clouds

STILL BLESSED

Author?

Sometimes I wake up in the morning, I see I've made it through the night.
I listen for my family, sure enough, they're all right.
As we gather round the table, bow our heads in thankfulness,
With tear-filled eyes, my heart cries, “Still blessed.”

There’s never a day He doesn't give me all I need,
And when I wake up to the storm, my soul cries peace.
Sometimes I try to count them; they're too many, I confess.
So with arms upraised, I just say, “Still blessed.”

Now I don't want to leave my family; I don't want to leave my friends.
Oh, but lately, I've been homesick; how I long just to be with Him.
So in the morning should you find me with my eyes closed in death,
Oh, what victory, what glory--"Still blessed.”

There’s never a day He doesn't give me all I need,
And when I wake up to the storm, my soul cries peace.
Sometimes I try to count them; they're too many, I confess.
So with arms upraised, I just say, “Still blessed.”

SHOUT TO THE LORD/HOW GREAT THOU ART

Darlene Zschech & Stuart Hine

My Jesus, My Savior
Lord, there is none like You
All of my days, I want to praise
The wonders of Your mighty love

My Comfort, My Shelter
Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath, and all that I am
Never cease to worship You

Shout to the Lord; all the earth, let us sing
Power and majesty, praise to the King
Mountains bow down, and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name
I sing for joy at the work of Your hands
Forever, I'll love you; forever I'll stand
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You

Oh, Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made
I see the stars; I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee
How great Thou art; How great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to thee
How great Thou art; how great Thou art

I sing for joy at the work of Your hands
Forever, I'll love you; forever I'll stand
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You

How great Thou art; How great Thou art
Shout to the Lord
How great Thou art

JESUS WILL NEVER CHANGE

Author?

I know that Jesus Christ is still who He said He was,
Jesus will never change
I know that yesterday, on and on, into the future,
His promises still remain
I know He's closer than a brother, any time I need Him,
I can call on His sweet name
He's Lord of all, now and forever,
Jesus will never change

Peter found out when He was walking on the water
That Jesus is a constant friend
He saw him going down, came to his rescue
And caught him with His mighty hand

I know that Jesus Christ is still who He said He was,
Jesus will never change
I know that yesterday, on and on, into the future,
His promises still remain
I know He's closer than a brother, any time I need Him,
I can call on His sweet name
He's Lord of all, now and forever,
Jesus will never change

John found out on the lonely Isle of Patmos
When the resurrected Lord appeared
He said, "John, It is I, the Alpha and Omega,
You haven't any reason to fear"
"You have no reason to fear"

I know that Jesus Christ is still who He said He was,
Jesus will never change
I know that yesterday, on and on, into the future,
His promises still remain
I know He's closer than a brother, any time I need Him,
I can call on His sweet name
He's Lord of all, now and forever,
Jesus will never change

CAN I PRAY FOR YOU?

Mark Bishop

I’ve been your friend for a while.
I know you’re hiding behind that smile,
And you’re keeping inside tears that should have been cried,
You’ve been brave through this trial.
You’ve been as strong as a stone,
Against the stormy winds that have blown.
But you have friends who care, more than willing to share,
Don’t face those troubles alone.

Can I pray for you?
Can I mention your name to the Lord?
When I seek His face, can I plead your case?
That’s what praying is for.
I’ll help you carry your cross,
And find the way when you’re lost.
If we’ll let Jesus be true, I know that He’ll see you through.
Can I pray for you?

I know that there’ll come a day.
When I’ll have trials and need you to pray.
Just like you’ve done before, you’ll mention me to the Lord,
That’s why I’m here to say:
“Let me be there for you.
We’ll divide all your problems by two.
And very soon there’ll be three – you and Jesus and me.
That’s what friends are supposed to do.”
Can I pray for you?
Can I mention your name to the Lord?
When I seek His face, can I plead your case?
That’s what praying is for.
I’ll help you carry your cross,
And find the way when you’re lost.
If we’ll let Jesus be true, I know that He’ll see you through.
Can I pray for you?

SOMETIMES GOD ALLOWS

Gerald Crabb and Donald Polythress

Sometimes He calms the raging wind, sometimes He stops the flood.
He's been known to stand between His children and the storm.
Sometimes He protects and shields us from the fire
Sometimes He moves the mountain before we ever have to climb.
Then we find…

Sometimes God allows the storms to come and hearts to break.
Things are hard to take.
Sometimes God allows the tears to fall and dreams to die.
I don't understand why we have to hurt and suffer loss.
And find the strength just to carry on
When all we know is, sometimes God allows.

He could easily make a hedge where nothing could pass through,
Or give ten thousand angels charge over me and you
Sometimes in his wisdom, He allows the hurt.
We listen for an answer yet never hear a word.
I know it hurts, oh, it hurts.

Sometimes God allows the storms to come and hearts to break.
Things are hard to take.
Sometimes God allows the tears to fall and dreams to die.
I don't understand why we have to hurt and suffer loss.
And find the strength just to carry on
When all we know is, sometimes God allows.

Sometimes God allows the storms to come and hearts to break.
Things are hard to take.
Sometimes God allows the tears to fall and dreams to die.
I don't understand why;
I still believe in the One who knows,
And I still trust that He loves us so, even though
Sometimes God allows.

I don’t know why. I don’t know where;
I don’t know how you will make it through, but I know Him,
And He is God and He is kind.
Sometimes it’s in the darkest nights we find

God is always good
God is always good
Always was, always is, forever He will be
God is always good to you and me

He knows your hurt, your broken heart
He knows everything that led to where you are
And He’ll provide all you need
So rest in Him, in his unfailing love and see

Always was, always is, forever He will be
God is always good to you and me

YESTERDAY'S BATTLES

Patti Hawkins

I’ve lived through days
Filled with heartache and pain
And prayed to the Father
To take them away
Then I heard Him whisper,
“I’m always with you
I hold tomorrow,
I’ll bring you through”

Yesterday’s trials
Give me strength for today
And they serve to remind me
That He’ll make a way
The nighttime is over,
And now I can see
That yesterday’s battles
Are today’s victories.

If you are weary
From the burdens you bear
So tired of struggling
And getting nowhere
Give them to Jesus.
He’ll stand in your place
When it is over,
You’ll once again say

Yesterday’s trials
Give me strength for today
And they serve to remind me
That He’ll make a way
The nighttime is over,
And now I can see
That yesterday’s battles
Are today’s victories.

LET THE WATERS RISE

Ben Glover, Mike Grayson and Sam Tinnesz

Don't know where to begin
It's like my world's caving in
And I try but I can't control my fear
Where do I go from here?

Sometimes it's so hard to pray
When You feel so far away
But I am willing to go
Where you want me to
God, I trust You

There's a raging sea
Right in front of me
Wants to pull me in
Bring me to my knees
So let the waters rise
If You want them to
I will follow You
I will follow You
I will follow You

I will swim in the deep
'Cuz You'll be next to me
You're in the eye of the storm
And the calm of the sea
You're never out of reach

God, You know where I've been
You were there with me then
You were faithful before
You'll be faithful again
I'm holding Your hand

There's a raging sea
Right in front of me
Wants to pull me in
Bring me to my knees
So let the waters rise
If You want them to
I will follow You
I will follow You
I will follow You

God, Your love is enough
You will pull me through
I'm holding onto You
God, Your love is enough
I will follow You
I will follow You

There's a raging sea
Right in front of me
Wants to pull me in
Bring me to my knees

GOD'S STILL GOOD

Dianne Wilkinson

Going through a rough patch, don't quite understand it.
It's lasted for a long time, don't know how to end it.
I started out by praying, got my friends a prayin' too.
God has never left me, even on the worst days.
After all this time, He's as close as in the first days.
Grace and tender mercies, I know are gonna see me through.

I don't know the reason
For the season of despair I'm livin' in,
But I know the burden bearer,
And He will carry me until the bad times end.
I've trusted Him a long time,
And He's always done the things that He said He would.
Even when the times are bad, God's still good.

If you're in a bad way looking for solutions,
You won't ever find them in your own conclusions.
God can clear your vision though nobody ever could.
Come to Him in faith, and then you'll know what I know.
Nothing can defeat you even when the storms blow.
Even in the bad times, you'll know that God's still good.

I don't know the reason
For the season of despair I'm livin' in,
But I know the burden bearer,
And He will carry me until the bad times end.
I've trusted Him a long time,
And He's always done the things that He said He would.
Even when the times are bad, God's still good.

When Jesus Speaks Peace

Author?

Often times, I've wondered even in my darkest hour,
Would His faithful ears still harken to my needs and my desires?
Then I hear His voice so tender speaking softly in my ear.
I kneel down and pray in my secret place, and I know He will hear.
He is always near.

When He speaks, "Peace", the raging storm must die,
New hope becomes new life
When He whispers, "Everything will be all right".
When He speaks, "Peace", the dark night slips away
Like the breaking of the day
When Jesus speaks, "Peace."

When my friends have failed me and I'm standing all alone,
When my spirit is discouraged and I feel all hope is gone,
There's no need to be disheartened, for I have a Friend Who cares.
When my faith becomes weak, I can kneel at His feet
And my burdens He will bear.
He is always there.

When He speaks, "Peace", the raging storm must die,
New hope becomes new life
When He whispers, "Everything will be alright".
When He speaks, "Peace", the dark night slips away
Like the breaking of the day
When Jesus speaks, "Peace."

I feel the dark clouds gather 'round me
And I don't seem to understand.
Then I feel His presence go before me
And I know He's holding to my hand.

When He speaks, "Peace", the raging storm must die,
New hope becomes new life
When He whispers, "Everything will be alright".
When He speaks, "Peace", the dark night slips away
Like the breaking of the day
When Jesus speaks, "Peace."

Peace, peace, wonderful peace
Like the breaking of the day
The dark night slips away
When Jesus speaks, "Peace."
