Depot Days
Written by Mary Fay Jackson

Some of my fondest memories
Were watching trains go by
From the engine to the red caboose
Those Sante Fe Lines.
I counted all those box cars
And wondered where theyíd been
Now theyíre back in Gainesville
Once again.

(chorus)
Itís Depot Days in Gainesville
An annual event
Itís Depot Days in Gainesville
Where most of my life-Iíve spent
A friendly little Texas town
Where historyís been made.
Itís Depot Days in Gainesville
Today!  (Hooray)

Now some have even asked me
What is a Depot?
Itís a railroad station
Where passengers unload
As we celebrate our future
As our past
Weíre making precious memories
To last.

Every Step of the Way
Written by Mary Fay Jackson

As I walk this lonesome valley
I feel your presence, is so near
I fear that I might stumble
And fall, but your sweet voice I hear
You must trust and obey me
I will see you through Ė Iím a God
Of the living Ė Iíve got a work for you 

(chorus)
Every step of the way,
Every step of the way. 
Iím trusting and believing
Youíll he me through today.
I need to feel your touch Lord
I canít make it on my own,
Iím depending on your spirit,
Every step of the way 

Some of the hardest things in life
Cannot be faced alone, you
Need the Savior, Heís walked that
Lonely road, Heís blazed the Trail
Heís been there, His love is like a
Breath of fresh air, Heíll guide
You to Heaven fair, Every step of the way.

I Believe Heís Watching Over Me
Written by Mary Fay Jackson and Michael David Culpepper
Mary Fay Jackson Music/BMI

(chorus)
I believe in the sun, when itís not shining
In Love, when Iím all alone
In God, when He is silent
Cause I know, He reigns on the throne
Iím still gonna trust Him, cause I know He knows whatís best for me
His eyes are on the sparrow, and I know Heís watching over me.
I believe what Iím doing is for my country
Itís one nation, under God
And only God knows what Iím doing here
Just one of many, fighting for the same cause. 

(talk)
You know some of these words were found etched in the walls of a POW camp and I canít help but think there was one lonely soldier,
Cold and hungry, maybe beaten and abused, for sure missing home but
Fighting for what he believed in .  This song is for all that have and
will sacrifice their life for this great country.  Thank you boys,

Thank you Lord, Iím proud to be an American! 

(last chorus)
I believe in the sun when itís not shining
In Love when Iím all alone
In God when He is silent
Cause I know He reigns on the throne and Iím still gonna trust Him
As I feel my life slipping away,
Iím gonna live forever, starting now on this glorious day.

Iíll Be Your Pillow
Written by Connie Perry-1995

When we met each other, we fell in love
We knew that our love-had come from above
As we stood together, on our special day
We wanted our love, like Godís love, to grow sweeter each day. 

I said : Will you love, til death do us part?
If Iím happy or sad, if I have a broken heart
He said: In good times or bad times-if our world falls apart
My loveís like Godís love, Iíll love you just as you are 

(Chorus)
Iíll walk for you, if you cannot walk
Iíll speak, for you softly, if you cannot talk
My hand will lead you, if you cannot see
Iíll be your pillow-when you fall asleep 

He said: Will you love me, if my strength fails someday
If Iím young or old, if my hair, turns to gray
I said: I will be there, just call my name
For my loveís like Godís love, Iíll love you the same 

(Bridge)

If youíre there for me-and Iím there for you
Weíll stand together-Weíll make it through!

Iím a Chart Topper
Written by Mike Culpepper and Mary Fay Jackson
Mary Fay Jackson Music/BMI

Iíve always thought of myself
As a singing superstar
But up until today
Iíve never made it quite that far
Till I turned on the radio
And tuned into his show
Now the whole townís talking
And everybody knows 

(chorus)
Iím a chart topper
On ole Charlieís Chart
Iím a chart topper
Ole Charlie did his part
For $400 and a little bit of my time
Heís made me a star
Even if-itís only in my mind

I scraped up all of my money
Met Charlie in his yard
Walked past a mangy barking dog
And a few old broke down cars
His studio was a closet
Stuff was duck taped - to the wall
When I hit those high notes
Things around me, began to fall

 Now things are happening
Since Ė I started way back then
Iím a member in good standing
With a whole new batch of friends
If Ė I just had more money and
A little bit more time
Heíd make me a star
One of a kind!

(end tag)
Now ole Charlieís much smarter than me
Cause he got all my money but Iím on His CD

Jesus is Coming
Written by Dinah Thomas

Heard it so long, but itís still true
Jesus is coming back-for me and you
He went away, so long ago
But Heís coming back-
Just like the stories told

(chorus)
Jesus is coming, It wonít be long
Canít you feel it in the air
Hear it in this song
Iíve got a feeling, it so strong
Jesus is coming and it wonít be long 

There is a message, going out
Across the land, donít fall asleep
His comingís at hand
Soon the trumpet will begin to blow
And all Godís children will be going home.

(chorus)

(repeat chorus twice)

I've got a feeling, It's so strong
Jesus is coming and it won't be long

Don't Cry For Me
Written by Darwin Hawkins
Recorded by 1 A Chord

Some live for pleasures
This ole world has to offer
forgetting, that someday
This day will come-
But I've put my hope
in things eternal, that time
can't destroy and death can't
take away.

(chorus)
Don't cry for me, when I
cross that river, this is
where my heart, so longs
to be, I've lived a lifetime
for just this moment, when
I cross that river,
Don't Cry For Me

Friends and relations, that have
gone on before us, soon we'll be
gathered, on the other shore,
where there'll be more more heart-
aches, sickness, nor suffering
Cause, we'll be in the presence of
Jesus our Lord!

Loving Memories Never Die
Written by Mary Fay Jackson
Mary Fay Jackson/BMI
2003

Some look for happiness in
Strange places
Money, things or people
With friendly faces
Things change and youíre still
Not satisfied
But old loving memories never die. 

(chorus)
Loving memories never die
So Iíll think about the good things
In my life
It will erase those dark clouds
From my eyes
Cause, old loving memories never die. 

Itís like the love my Grandma
Had for me
Sheíd do without, if us kids
Had a need
Grandpa would take me fishing
Or his big truck heíd let me drive
Old loving memories never die 

(tag)

Like sitting on a church pew
Spending all my time with you
Old loving memories never die.

Our Praise
Written by Dinah Thomas

Paul and Silas prayed,
In the middle of the night,
They sang praises to the Lord
most high,
And the chains begin to fall,
While on the Lord they called,
They sang praise,
Oh they sang praise

 (chorus)
Our praise can break down,
The walls of prison,
Our praise can set the captive free,
Itís our way to enter into the tabernacle,
Itís our praise that gives us victory.

When we praise the Lord our God,
With all our heart, mind and soul,
When we offer up a sacrifice of praise,
He will come into our presence,
And his glory fills this place. 

With our praise
With our praise

Roses
Written by Mary Fay Jackson
Springwell Music/BMI

(chorus)
Iíve got a man that brings me roses every day
Heís never too busy, or very far away
I can call on him at midnight, noon or break of day
Iíve got a man that brings me roses every day.

A rose in all itís beauty
Thereís none to compare
Of all the flowers God created,
The sweetest fragrance in the air.
And it adds so much beauty, color and array
Iíve got a man that brings me roses everyday. 

Now when I go to Heaven, Iíll bow before his grace
Iíll meet my prince Jesus-then face to face
Iíll thank him for his love and for brightening up my days
Iíll meet the man that brought me roses every day.

 (ending)
I know the man that brings me roses,
I love that man that brings me roses,
Iíve got a man that brings me roses every day.

Thanks for Sharing Your Life with Me
Written by Mary Fay Jackson
Springwell Music/BMI

Iím so glad that our paths have crossed
Without you, Iíd be so lost
Hand in hand on this journey, up some hills and through some valleys
We watched little flowers grow
Walked in the rain, slipped in the snow
So for now and eternity, Thanks for sharing your life with me. 

(chorus)
Thanks for sharing your life with me
In my heart youíll always be
A true friend like no other
You stick closer than a brother
You turned my life around, a sweeter love could not be found
So for now and eternity, Thanks for sharing your life with me.

I know Heaven will be forever
Weíll be as angels and all together
Never be apart, only happiness from the start
And as that wedding day begins, the celebration will never end
So for now and eternity, Thanks for sharing your life with me. 

(ending)
You trust me for all times and your forever on my mind
So for now and eternity, Thanks for sharing your life with me.

The Plans I Have For You Written by Mary Fay Jackson
Mary Fay Jackson Music/BMI

As a child I dreamed of traveling afar
Wearing fancy clothes and becoming a Super Star
I still canít see the big picture in front of me
It seems I hear God saying, Itís all a Mystery. 

(chorus)
You donít even know the plans I have for you
I will be your God, I will see you through
Goodness and Mercy will follow too
You donít even know, the plans I have for you 

Life is a performance, a stage Iím acting through
Thereís still places to go and may things to do
And the grand Finale, when my journey ends
Iíll hear him say, Well done, my child enter in.

The Sun Will Shine Again
Written by Mary Fay Jackson and Mike Culpepper
Mary Fay Jackson Music/BMI
2003

There are millions of lonely people
You and old alike
Some are rich, some are poor,
Some will never see daylight
God knows their beginning
He certainly knows their end
If theyíll open up their heart
Their sun will shine again

(chorus)
The sun will shine again
Youíll make it through your darkest hour
Jesus will be your friend
The Holy Ghost will give you power
So whatever challenge you may face
Donít give up, keep the faith
Put your trust in Him
You sun will shine again.

 Everyone has a story
Of storms in their life
Some are survivors
While others never arrive
God bless us with a new day
Love and happiness
If we fall, we can repent
Our sun will shine again

   Something We All  Need
                       By Dinah Thomas

You canít put it in a bottle
throw it out to sea
Thereís not way to contain it
Itís bigger than you and me
Iíve seen it take a strong man
And bring him to his knees
Then turn around and give him-all his hopes and his dreams 

(chorus)
Love is something, we all need
It canít be bought with money, cause itís free
It just takes a little, to make a life complete
Love is something, we all need

It doesnít matter who you are
Weíre all made the same
The ruler of the Heavenís, made us this way.
He knows our every thought
and He takes care of our needsThe greatest gift is Love-He has given it to you and me.

(chorus)

This is Your House
Written by Mary Fay Jackson
Springwell Music/BMI

This is a House of Prayer
For all nations to meet you there,
And where two or three agree, the enemy just has to flee.
Itís been bought with a price, the supreme sacrifice
So lift up your name up high, This is your House. 

(chorus)
This is your House.  This is your House.
When Godís people get together in your House
Weíll gather in one accord.
Lift our hands and praise the Lord.
This temple that your dwell in is your House.

This House is a House of clay,
The Potterís molding us today,
And weíre created in his imagine, with child like faith
Weíre the apple of his eye, we are the Bride of Christ,
Redeemed and sanctified, This is your House

Live Every Day
Written by Mary Fay Jackson
Michael David Culpepper
Springwell Music/BMI

(chorus)
Lord help me live every day as if today were my last;
Let me dream about tomorrow;
Forget about the past,
Let me be a ray of light in the darkest of the night,
Help me live every day, as if today were my last.

 Today is the first day, of the rest of our lives.
All that really matters, is what we do for Christ.
This old world is changing, time is passing so fast.
So help us live every day, as if today were our last.

Sometimes the storms of this life
They bring us to our knees.
And this old world that we live in
There seems to be no peace.
But Americans and Christians, weíre walking hand in hand
United together, Oh Lord please help us stand.

 (Ending)
Let me be a ray of light in the darkest of the night.
Let me live every day, as if today were my last

Grandma's House
Written by Mike Culpepper and Mary Fay Jackson

When I was a child, afraid of the
Storm, Grandma would kneel & pray
Hold me safely in her arms.  She'd
cover me with that big quilt, Her
little hands had made, She told
me Jesus loved me, and everything
would be ok.

(chorus)
Grandma's House has weathered many Storms, She prayed; Lord help me,
Keep my family from all harm
Her home was a haven, a place of
Harmony, In that little two room
house, full of precious memories.

She never met a stranger, or turned
anyone away, She always said
ya'll come back, when you have
longer to stay, she left the front=
porch light on, Dinner on the stove
Her house was not just any House
Her house was always home.

(tag)
Yes Jesus loves me (repeat)
Cause my Grandma told me so!

In The Shadows
By Dinah Thomas

Thereís still a table spread
Where all the saints are fed
I believe Jesus is still the way
I believe that you and me
Still have what used to be
Living within our hearts today

(chorus)
Standing somewhere in the shadows
You still find Jesus
Heís the one Who hears and
answers prayer
When youíve done all you can
The Bible says to just stand
Just be somewhere
Listening for your name

Blessed assurance
Jesus is mine
Is still my story
All the long day
And the way of the cross
Still leads us all home
Some things here on earth
will never change

(chorus)

When youíve done all you can
The Bible says to just stand
Just be somewhere
Listening for your name

Just be somewhere
Listening for your name

He's Coming Back
By Connie Perry

Oh there are those who say His coming has been delayed
And they think Heís still so far away
And they say, ďIíve heard it ever since I was a childĒ
But itís so much nearer now
Just a little while

(chorus)
Heís coming back after His children
right on time
Heís coming back so keep Him
on your mind all the time
Heís coming back and I know it
wonít be long
Wonít it be wonderful to be where we belong?

Like a bride thatís waiting for the groom
Weíre getting restless
for we know it will be soon
Just trying to keep our
wedding garments white
For on that special day we
want to look just right

(chorus)

Heís coming back
Right on time
It wonít be long
Weíll all be gone
To our new home 

(chorus)

Heís coming back after his children
Right on time

I Fell In Love With Jesus

Thereís a love story
The greatest ever told
Itís about Jesus
And it never grows old
How His love was given
So tender and free
To the very ones who crucified Him
And nailed Him to the tree

(chorus)
So I fell in love with Jesus
Heís the love of my soul
Iím in love with Jesus
My broken heart
He made whole
Iím in love with Jesus
He means everything to me
Iím in love with Jesus
He loves me

Heíll never leave me
Heís always by my side
When Iím weary
He hears my humble cry
When Iím lonely
Heís reaches out and takes my hand
Heís the only one I know
Who really understands

(chorus)

Heís there in the dark of the night
Heís there when the sunís shining bright
Heíll always be there
For Heís the love of my life

(chorus)

Itís the greatest love story
That ever could be
That ever could be

When I Reached Up
Written by Connie Perry

When I was just a child
I heard the sweetest story
About a babe in a manger
Long ago
Now I know this was not just another story told
For Heís living in my heart
Still saving souls

When I reached up
He reached down
I was lost
But now Iím found
Amazing Grace
How sweet the sound
When I reached up for his love
He reached down

Now if youíve got a problem
Too big for you
You need an answer
Just to see your way through
Iíve got a Savior
I recommend
A way maker
A dear friend
Heíll change your life
Make you brand new

If youíll reach up
Heíll reach down
If youíre lost
And wanna be found
Amazing Grace
How sweet the sound
If youíll reach up for His love
Heíll reach down

He came down from His mighty throne
He gave His life for His very own
But that was not the end
He arose again!

If youíll reach up
Heíll reach down
If youíre lost
And wanna be found
Amazing Grace
How sweet the sound
If youíll reach up for His love
Heíll reach down

(repeat)

Angels Stood At Attention
Written by Connie Perry

Thereís a story
No matter when told
It stirs something down in my soul
The tears come again and again
I see a man stumbling up a hill
Stripes on His back
That we might be healed
At His suffering and Shame
Heavenís tears fell like rain

(chorus)
Angels stood at attention
Waiting for His call
But He chose to hang there
For the sins of us all
If only a whisper
They wouldíve carried Him away
But the blood that flowed
down that hill
Still flows through me today

Thereís a picture in my mind I see
A man between two thieves
In agony yet knowing
he could go free
But His vision was beyond the cross
It was love and passion for the lost
While looking down through time
A King had me on his mind

(chorus)

His searching eyes saw the hurtingHis tender ears
heard their cry
His soft voice spoke forgiveness
His loving heart let the
hammer and nails
Stretch His arms wide

(chorus)

Yes, the blood that flowed down that hill
Still flows through me today

He's That Friend

I know a friend, thatís closer than a brother
I know a friend that loved me with His life
Now that someone up there
Who really, really cares
That friend I found is Jesus Christ

(chorus)
Heís that friend
That loved you with His life
Heís the one
Who dries the tears from your eyes
He is there to lift you up when you donít have strength to try
Heís that friend that loved you with his life

I know a friend
That said Heíd go away
To prepare for us a place someday
He is gentle, kind and true
And His love is reaching for you
He gave his life
What more could He do?

Yes, Heís that friend who loved you with His life

Just a Little Taste of Heaven

When it seems my strength is gone
Itís hard to carry on
Heíll take those burdens
Lighten up the load
When to prayer I go

(chorus)

Just a little taste of Heaven for my soul
Just a little taste of Heaven to let me know
He really loves and cares for His own
Just a little taste of Heaven for my soul

He went away so long ago
But in our hearts He lets us know
That He will never leave us alone
Just a little taste of Heaven for our souls

(chorus)

Now that I know that He is there
What a time I have when I go to Him in prayer

He sends just a little taste of Heaven for my soul
Just a little taste of Heaven to let me know
He really loves and cares for His own
Just a little taste of Heaven for my soul

He really loves and cares for His own
Just a little taste of Heaven for my soul

Heaven's Roadsigns
Written by Connie Perry

There were two young people
And they saw an old man
Sitting on a park bench
With a Bible in his hands
They said wonít you tell us
About the good old days
He said come a little closer
And hear what Iíve got to say 

You see I remember when I was just like you
My heart was full of dreams
Many things I planned to do
Then old satan tricked me
Stole my youth away
So If youíll listen to me
Iíll tell about a better way

(chorus)
You got to look up
Keep Heaven in view
Donít look down
Satan will step on you
Donít look around
You might lose your way
Keep your eyes on Heavenís Road signs
And the straight and narrow way

Now if you let him
Satan will take you for a ride
He took me down a dead end
street and left me there to die
It was there my savior found me
Put me on a different road
He Changed my direction
Gave a better way to go

(chorus)

Now youíve heard my story
And what Iíve got to say
If you will do it right
These can be your good old days
Life is what you make it
Thereís so much at stake
Ask God to direct you
Which road that you take 

(chorus) 

(repeat chorus) 

Keep your eyes on Heavenís Roadsigns
And the straight and narrow way

Now I Can See
By Dinah Thomas

Jesus was passing by
A man blind from his birth
He picked up some dirt
Made some clay
And He put it in his eyes that day
As he walked he could see
Oh the first time he began to speak
Of the miracles that God has done
He was blind but now he could see

(chorus)
This one thing I know
I was blind but now I see
Those chains that held me down
Were broken just for me
Donít have all the answers
But I know what happened to me
This one thing I know for sure
I was blind but now I see 

I was headed down that road
Just as blind as I could be
There was no hope in sight
No future left for me
My Jesus heard my cry
As He was passing by
He reached way down and touched my heart
Now I can testify

This one thing I know
I was blind but now I see
Those chains that held me down
Have been broken just for me

Donít have all the answers
But I know what happened to me
Oh this one thing I know for sure
I was blind but now I see 

(chorus)

This one thing I know for sure
I was blind but now I see

He Understands

As I travel down this lifeís journey
I meet some folks so burdened
down and low

And they come to me for an answer
They say lifeís so unfair, I donít know which way to go
I look at them with love and compassion
Trying to say some words to see them through
Yet I know that I am only human
For thereís just so much that this old flesh can do 

(chorus)
But I know a man who can
He understands
Jesus knows just what to do
Heís fixed it up for you
By His stripes and with salvation's plan 

I walked into a room of a loved one
Lying there with tears of pain in her eyes
She said to me, ďI donít know where to turn to
For what I have the doctors says may take my lifeĒ
Then I took her hand and knelt by the bedside
I said, ďThese things we donít understandĒ
But thereís one thing thatís for certain
We canít lose faith when itís out of our hands

(chorus) 

Jesus knows just what to do
Heís fixed it all for you
By His stripes and with salvation's plan

Gonna Feel So Good

Be ready to go
Donít fall away
He could call for you just any day
He said He would come like a thief in the night
Donít fall asleep keep your lamp burning bright

(chorus)

Gonna feel so good to lay this body down
Gonna trade this flesh for a robe and a crown
When the trumpet blows and I hear that heavenly sound
Gonna feel so good to then lay this body down

Precious to the Lord is the death of His saints
Theyíre gonna rise first
To meet Him face to face
Gonna sail toward home, to their mansion on high
Gonna leave their cold, cold grave far behind

(chorus)

Yet some remain and are still alive
But they're gonna be changed
In the twinkling of an eye
Well it wonít be long and I know weíll all be gone to march around that throne singing our new song

(chorus)

Gonna feel so good then to lay this body down

 

Willing to Pay the Price

We can pray then go our way
Never spending enough time
Talking to the Father
Speaking whatís on our minds
But if weíll wait upon the Lord
He will renew our strength
Give us the power that we need 

(chorus)

Are we willing to pay the price?
Are we willing to sacrifice?
The price is paid on our knees
And if weíll ask and just believe
Every promise we can receive
By paying the price on our knees 

Strength to overcome
Strength to tell someone
About a God who cannot fail
He did all that He could do
Now itís up to me and you
Souls can be saved if weíll only pray

(chorus)

All the power that we need
Is paying the price on our knees

Everything Will Be Just Right In Heaven
(author unknown)

You may not walk the
Road I want you to
I may not understand
Some things you do
We have our ups and downs
Our smiles and frowns
But everything will be just right
When we up there. 

(chorus)
Everything will be just right
in Heaven
Thereíll be no storms of life
To blow me down
Everything will be just right
In Heaven
Everything will be just right
When we get up there

 

Thereíll be no cold and lonely
Nights up there

The sun will shine and smiles we
Then shall wear
Sweet music will ring softly
Through the air
And everything will be just right
When we get there 

(chorus) 

Everything will be just right Everything will be just right Everything will be just right when we get up there

First Step
By Connie Perry

I was traveling in the fast lane
No knowing where I was going
But I knew down deep inside
It was bad seeds I was sowing
Then I found a little country church
Just thought Iíd go inside
The preacher was preaching
How my Savior died
When they gave the invitation
Tears were in my eyes
When the little choir started singing
ďI would not be deniedĒ 

(chorus)
When I took my first step
I told this world goodbye
I put old things behind me
All the pleasures sin could buy
Now Iím traveling down a new path
And Iíve got a brand new life
When I took my first step
I left the old man behind

Now my old friends wondered
Just what happened to me
For they said, youíre just not
The man you used to be
For thereís a smile upon my face
For all the world to see
And oh the joy that floods my soul
Since something got ahold of me

Now Iím sowing good seeds
One day at a time
And Iím singing an old song
About a satisfied mind 

(chorus)

(tag)
When I look back down that road
At where I could be
I count my many blessings
Since he broke the chains on me 

I count my many blessings since Jesus set me free

He Remembered Me
By Florabell Westbrook

A sinner bowed beneath a load
Of sin and sorrow
A gentile lost no hope to be made free
For a world forlorn, a son was born
To bring salvation
And my precious Lord-Remembered Me

(chorus)
He remembered me, in his agony
And suffering, He remembered me
As he hung on that cruel tree
While hanging there, to all He
Seemed forsaken, yet my precious
Lord remembered me

Swing wide the gate, I wonít be Late, Iím traveling onward
For He is mine and Iím His
For eternity
Since heís my choice, I now rejoice
Oh Hallelujah, Iím so
Glad my Lord remembered me

(chorus)

He Turned My Life Around

Down a wrong road I once traveled
So burdened down in sin
I was living for my own self
Fighting wars I could not win
Tempted, tried and rejected, I was
Swiftly losing ground, then I ran into
A detour and Jesus turned my life around 

(chorus)
Safe in His arms, that where I want to be
Guided by the hand of Jesus, Iím still holding
Desperately and when I feel my strength is failing
He lifts me to a higher ground and Iím reminded
Of when he saved me and when he turned my life around

Now Iím on the road to heaven
Since Jesus turned my life around
A willing vessel he is using, oh what peace and joy
I have found, never more to stay in darkness, for in
His light Iím safe and sound
Iíve got someone to fight my battles
Since Jesus turned my life around 

(chorus)

Iím reminded of when he saved me and when he turned my life around

Heaven Will Be Worth It All
By Dinah Thomas

Trials of Life, they are many and
Sometimes, we stumble and fall, but
This journey leads to glory, so
Iíll keep on traveling on. 

(chorus)

Heaven will be worth it all, Yes
Heaven will be worth it all
Every heartache, every teardrop
That falls
Heaven will be worth it all
Be persuaded-in the Lord and
A crown of life-you will wear
Just keep your eyes on Jesus
You will make it to the end.

(chorus)

(bridge)

Be not dismayed, be not afraid
Just keep on walking-this narrow way
Just keep the faith, donít you stray
Youíre gonna see the kingdom someday 

(chorus)

Thou Art Strong
By Roy Thomas

Here I am again, calling on you,
Youíre the only friend Iíve got,
To see me through,
Though the road gets long and lonely,
And it seems my strength is gone,
I might be weak Lord,
But thou art strong.

(chorus)
I might be weak Lord,
Thou art strong,
If Iíll put my trust in you,
I canít go wrong,
Though sometimes it seems so,
Hard to carry on,
I might be weak Lord,
But thou art strong

I was soaring high, I thought that I,
Was upon the mountain high,
But then I slipped and stumbled,
I fell on my knees and cried,
Oh God please forgive,

For trying to make it on my own
I might be weak Lord, but thou art strong

(chorus)

I might be weak Lord
But thou art strong

I Canít Complain
By Don Johnson

I have good days and I have
Hills to climb and I have sad
Days and a weary mind but
When I look around and think
Things all over, all of my good
Days out weigh my bad days
I canít complain

(chorus)
God is so good to me, He is so
Good to me, more than this world
Could be, Heís so good to me
His spirit came to me and gave
Me victory, God is so good to me
I canít complain

Sometimes the clouds hang low,
Iíd like to see them go and I
question; Lord why so much pain
But He knows whatís best for me
Although I cannot see.  I just say
Thank you Lord-I canít complain

(chorus)

Heís so good to me
I canít complain

 

 

 

 

 

 

You Gotta Make It
By Dinah Thomas

Thereís nothing in this world,
That can compare to heavens beauty
Or the crown we shall wear,
Itís time to listen to the saviorís voice,
Heís calling, but friend itís your choice 

(chorus)
Whatever you gotta do, you gotta make it
Whatever you gotta go, you gotta make it
Oh for heavenís sake,
You canít miss those pearly gates,
Whatever you gotta do,
You gotta make it

No sin, no shame,
Shall enter there, but it can be covered
By his blood with just a prayer,
His love and his mercy
Are reaching out still,
To whosoever will.

(chorus) 

(repeat chorus) 

Oh for heavenís sake
You canít miss those pearly gates
Whatever you gotta go, you gotta make it

Masterís Bouquet

Death is an angel sent down
From above, sent for the buds
And the flowers we love, but
Every bud & each blossom some
Day will bloom as a flower
In the masterís bouquet.

(chorus)
Gathering flowers for the Masterís
Bouquet, beautiful flowers, that will
Never decay, gathered by angels
And carried away, forever to bloom
In the Masterís bouquet

Loved ones are passing each day
And each hour, passing away as the
Life of a flower, truly tis so, for
In Heavenís own way, each soul is
A flower in the Masterís bouquet 

(chorus)

Let us be faithful til lifeís
Work is done, blooming with love
Til the reaper shall come, then
Weíll be gathered together for aye
Transplanted to bloom in the Masterís bouquet

Itís Jesus, Iím Living For

Is Jesus,
Heís the one who gave his life for me,
I know heís smiling down right now,
As I speak his name,
Itís Jesus Iíll stand before one day 

(chorus)
Itís Jesus that Iím living for,
Oh itís Jesus that Iím living for,
I love and adore him,
Put no other Godís before him

Thereís nothing in this world greater than,
The joy he gives with just one touch
Of his hand, I canít imagine my life
Without the Lord,
Yes itís Jesus that Iím living for.

I love and adore him,
Put no other Godís before him
Itís Jesus that Iím living for.

She Found Everything

Looking on the outside, she had everything it seemed
All the gold and glitter the taste of finer things
But in her heart she was lonely as could be
Then she met the savior & He made her life complete 

(chorus)
She found everything she was looking for
She found it all the night she found the Lord
It wasnít in the lights on Broadway
Just a church with hardwood floors
She found everythingóshe was looking for

Everyone could clearly see, the change in her life
The smile on her face, comes from deep inside
She found a peace, she had never known
& now her life speaks for itís own 

(chorus then ending w/ last 3 lines of chorus-repeat last line)

What Would I Do
By Connie Perry

Sometimes this old world is a wilderness
Trees so tall I was lost and so alone
I felt confused, couldnít find my direction
But with your help, Lord
I found my way back home

(chorus)
What would I do, Lord without you
What would I do without your love so true?
How could I handle my life
Without you by my side
Oh what would I do without you?

Like a little child when itís heart is broken
I go running home to you
For I know youíre the one to mend it
Just like dear Lord you always do 

(chorus)

When I awake in the morning
And I have another day in view
I know all that really matters
Is what I do down here for you

(bridge)

For I canít relive the past Lord
And the future may never be mine
So help me to remember you only give
One day at a time 

(chorus)

How could I handle my life
without you by my side

What would I do without you

Praise the Lamb
By Dinah Thomas

Our Father loves the praises
Of His people
And hears each time we cry
He bled and died,
So that I
Could be free,
The least that I could do,
Is lift my hands, Lord
And worship You

And I will praise, the Lamb
For sinners slain,
I will lift up and exalt,
His Holy Name
I will praise Him for
His goodness, to all men,
I will praise Him,
Forever and ever Amen.

Praise the Lord,
All ye nations all ye people,
For His merciful kindness
His willingness to forgive,
I will praise Him for His
Mercy endureth forever,
I will praise Him
As long as I shall live.

Lion in the Tribe of the Lord

(chorus)
Well, Iím a lion in the tribe of the Lord
Iím a lion of the tribe of the Lord
He brought like a king through the
wilderness
Through the battlefield of fear and distress
No matter how rough the road may seem
Or what the devil tries to do to me
Through the raging war Iím a lion of the Lord

He didnít give me a spirit of fear
But He lets me know Heís always near
He plans no defeat for me
But He gave me total victory
He goes before me wherever I go
I know Iíll never have to walk alone.
He gave me power and authority
To be a lion on the Lord

(chorus)

An over comer by the blood of the lamb
Through the power of the great I Am
Now Iím marching to a different beat
Iím pressing forward never sounding retreat
He gives me power over my enemies
Iím gaining ground because Heís working in me
And Heís clothed me in His majesty
To be a lion for the Lord

(chorus)

(repeat chorus)

 

Donít Remove My Mountain
Written by Connie Perry

Can this life be all
about a mountain?
And sometimes
we have our valleys too
But he said child
Itís only a testing
Just believe
And I will see you through

(chorus)
So I don't ask you Lord
To remove my mountain
Just give me courage
That I can climb o'r
And I don't ask you Lord
To remove my valley
Just give me strength
Just like You have before 

For sometimes it seems
My patience clouds
And it feels my strength
Is almost gone
But then He reaches
Way down to touch me
And all my fears
That I've had are all gone

(chorus)

When I take a look
At that mountain
I can see God's glory
Everywhere
When I take a look
At that valley
I can see Him
In the lilies there

(chorus) 

Just give me strength
Just like you have before

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just to Be One of Them

Because his life was easy
He had riches and fame
But he chose
Afflictions and turned away
That same spirit that drew Moses
Changed my life today
For once I felt His Spirit
Iíve never been the same

(Chorus)
Just to be one of them
Is my heartís desire
For once I felt His Spirit
I needed that power
Though it might be
With many or three
Just to be, just to be
One of them 

I would give up riches
Wealth and fame
To be counted with His chosen
With the ones who bear His name
And though the road gets rough
His word remains true
For Iím counted with His chosen few 

(chorus)

And Iíd gladly give my life
As a sacrifice
Not just a part
But all just for Him 
(chorus)

Just to be, just to be
One of them
