    Amazing Grace

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me
    I once was lost but now I am found
    Was blind but now, I seeAmazing Grace, how sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me
    I once was lost but now I am found
    Was blind but now, I see

    T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear
    And Grace, my fears relieved
    And how precious did that Grace appear
    At the hour when I first believed

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me
    I once was lost but now I have found
    Was blind but now, now I see

    When we've been here ten, ten thousand years
    Bright shining, bright shining as the sun
    We've no less days to sing our God's praise
    Then when we've first begun

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me
    I once was lost but now I am found
    Was blind but now, I see

    I was blind but now, I see

    In the Garden

    I come to the garden alone
    While the dew is still on the roses
    And the voice I hear, falling on my ear
    The Son of God discloses.

    And He walks with me
    And He talks with me
    And He tells me I am His own
    And the joy we share as we tarry there
    None other has ever known.

    And the melody that He gave to me
    Within my heart is ringing.

    And He walks with me
    And He talks with me
    And He tells me I am His own
    And the joy we share as we tarry there
    None other has ever known...

    Softly and Tenderly

    Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
    Calling for you and for me.
    See, on the portals, He's waiting and watching;
    Watching for you and for me.

    Come home, come home,
    Ye who are weary come home;
    Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling;
    Calling, "O sinner, come home!"

    O for the wonderful love He has promised,
    Promised for you and for me.
    Though we have sinned He has mercy and pardon;
    Pardon for you and for me.

    Come home, come home,
    Ye who are weary come home;
    Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling;
    Calling, "O sinner, come home!"

    Come home, come home,
    Ye who are weary come home;
    Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling;
    Calling, "O sinner, come home!"

    Abide With Me

    Abide with me, fast falls the eventide:
    The darkness deepens, Lord, with me abide:
    When other helpers fail, and comforts flee,
    Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

    I need thy presence every passing hour,
    What but thy grace can foil the tempter's power?
    Who, like thyself, my guide and stay can be?
    Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.

    I fear no foe with thee at hand to bless,
    Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
    Where is death's sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
    I triumph still, if thou abide with me.

    Hold thou thy cross before my closing eyes,
    Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies,
    Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee,
    In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

    Just a Closer Walk With Thee

    Just a closer walk with Thee
    Grant it, Jesus, is my plea
    Daily walking close to Thee
    Let it be, dear Lord, let it be

    I am weak, but Thou art strong
    Jesus, keep me from all wrong
    I'll be satisfied as long
    As I walk let me walk close to Thee

    In this world of toil and snares
    If I falter, Lord, who cares?
    Who but Thee my burden shares?
    None but Thee, oh Lord, none but Thee

    When my feeble life is o'er
    Time for me will be more no more
    Guide me gently, safely o'er
    To Thy kingdom shore to Thy shore

    When my weary life is o'er
    Pain and suff'ring are no more
    Who will lead me safely o'er
    Canaan's shore
    That sweet Canaan's shore

    Nothing But the Blood

    What can wash away my sins?
    Nothing but the blood of Jesus
    What can make me whole again?
    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

    Oh, precious is that flow
    That makes me white as snow
    No other fount I know
    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
    What can wash away my sins?
    Nothing but the blood of Jesus
    What can make me whole again?
    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

    Nothing but the blood of Jesus
    Nothing but the blood of Jesus... ​

    Are You Washed in the Blood?

    Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?
    Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
    Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
    Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

    Are you washed in the blood,
    In the soul-cleansing blood of the Lamb?
    Are your garments spotless are they white as snow?
    Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

    Lay aside your garments that are stained with sin
    And be washed in the blood of the Lamb.
    There's a fountain flowing for the soul unclean.
    O, be washed in the blood of the Lamb!

    Are you washed in the blood,
    In the soul-cleansing blood of the Lamb?
    Are your garments spotless are they white as snow?
    Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

    The Old Rugged Cross

    On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross
    An emblem of sufferin' and shame
    And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
    For a word of lost sinners were slain

    So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
    Till my trophies at last I lay down
    I will cling to the old rugged cross
    And exchange it some day for a crown

    To the old rugged cross, I will ever be true
    It's shame and reproach gladly bear
    Then he'll call me some day to my home far away
    Where his glory forever I'll share

    So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
    Till my trophies at last I lay down
    I will cling to the old rugged cross
    And exchange it some day for a crown

    What a Friend We Have in Jesus

    What a friend we have in Jesus,
    All our sins and griefs to bear!
    What a privilege to carry
    Everything to God in prayer!
    O what peace we often forfeit,
    O what needless pain we bear,
    All because we do not carry
    Everything to God in prayer.

    Have we trials and temptations?
    Is there trouble anywhere?
    We should never be discouraged;
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Can we find a friend so faithful
    Who will all our sorrows share?
    Jesus knows our every weakness;
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.

    Blessed Assurance

    Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine

    Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine

    Heir of salvation, purchase of God

    Born of His spirit, washed in His blood

     

    This is my story, this is my song

    Praising my Savior all the day long

    This is my story, this is my song

    Praising my Savior all the day long

     

    Perfect submission, perfect delight

    Visions of rapture now burst on my sight

    Angels descending bring from above

    Echoes of mercy, whispers of love

     

    This is my story, this is my song

    Praising my Savior all the day long

    This is my story, this is my song

    Praising my Savior all the day long

    Praising my Savior all the day long

    In the Sweet By and By

    There's a land that is fairer than day,

    And by faith we can see it afar;

    For the Father waits over the way

    To prepare us a dwelling place there.

    In the sweet by and by,

    We shall meet on that beautiful shore;

    In the sweet by and by,

    We shall meet on that beautiful shore.

    We shall sing on that beautiful shore

    The melodious songs of the blessed;

    And our spirits shall sorrow no more,

    Not a sigh for the blessing of rest.

    To our bountiful Father above,

    We will offer our tribute of praise

    For the glorious gift of His love

    And the blessings that hallow our days.

    There is Power in the Blood

    Would you be free from your burden of sin?
    There's power in the blood, power in the blood
    Would you o'er evil the victory win?
    There's wonderful power in the blood

    Would you be whiter, much whiter than snow?
    There's power in the blood, power in the blood
    Sin stains are lost in its life-giving flow

    There is power, power, wonder-working power
    In the blood of the Lamb
    There is power, power, wonder-working power
    In the precious blood of the Lamb

    There's power in the blood, power in the blood
    Would you live daily His praises to sing?
    There's wonderful power in the blood

    There is power, power, wonder-working power
    In the blood of the Lamb
    There is power, power, wonder-working power
    In the precious blood of the Lamb

    Power, power, wonder-working power
    In the blood of the Lamb
    There is power, power, wonder-working power
    In the precious blood of the Lamb

    Lord, how we need Your power
    Every day and every hour
    Lord, how we need Your power
    Every day and every hour

    Lord, how we need Your power
    Every day and every hour
    Lord, how we need Your

    Power, power, wonder-working power
    In the blood of the Lamb
    There is power, power, wonder-working power
    In the precious blood of the Lamb

    In the precious blood of the Lamb
    In the precious blood of the Lamb

    The Business of Love

  • 14

    Somebody Was Prayin' For Me

    Well the path to destruction's like an interstate highway
    (Somebody somewhere was prayin' for me)
    And like so many people I took it for my way
    (Somebody somewhere was prayin' for me]
    Well it's wide and it's smooth and it's easy to travel
    (Somebody somewhere was prayin' for me)
    And then all of a sudden my life came unraveled
    (Somebody somewhere was prayin' for me)

    Somebody (somebody) somewhere (somewhere)
    Somebody held me up in prayer
    Cause I was so far down I had to reach up to touch the ground
    Jesus said if you believe (if you believe) just ask and you shall receive
    (Somebody was down on their knees somebody was prayin' for me)
    Prayin' for me
    (Somebody was down on their knees somebody was prayin' for me)

    I was on the wrong track like a runaway freight train
    (Somebody somewhere was prayin' for me)
    I was a rocking and a rolling my way down the fast lane
    (Somebody somewhere was prayin' for me)
    Any port in a storm any pleasure that pleases
    (Somebody somewhere was prayin' for me)
    I ran into a brick wall and his name was Jesus
    (Somebody somewhere was prayin' for me)

    Somebody (somebody) somewhere (somewhere)
    Somebody must have really cared
    I was lost and I was so alone that I couldn't find my way back home
    I was standin' on the sinkin' sand (sinkin' sand)
    Then he reached down his merciful hand
    (Somebody was down on their knees somebody was prayin' for me)

    Somebody (somebody) somewhere (somewhere)...

    Jesus Died For You

    You may be down, you may be out
    With nothing to be glad about
    But you can stand right up and shout
    'Cause Jesus died for you 

    You may think that you can't cope 
    You may be drunk or hooked on dope 
    Believe me brother, you've still got hope 
    'Cause Jesus died for you

    Maybe you ain't got a dime 
    You're standing in the welfare line 
    Or maybe you're in prison doin your time 
    But Jesus died for you 
    Satan may have you in retreat 
    But you won't go down in defeat 
    'Cause you can sittin in the mercy seat 
    'Cause Jesus died for you 

    He died for you - to complete salvation's plan 
    He died for you - He's got nail scars in His hands
    He bore the cross - to sanctify the lost
    All you've got to do is believe it,
    Get down on your knees and receive it! 

    You may think you're too far gone 
    You've sinned so bad you can't atone 
    But bow your head and come on home 
    'Cause Jesus died for you 

    This ol' world keeps falling apart 
    But you don't have to let it break your heart 
    You can make a brand new start 
    'Cause Jesus died for you 
    Now Satan is a mighty foe
    But just stand firm because you know 
    You've got a better place to go 
    'Cause Jesus died for you 
    When there's trouble in the wind 
    Or when you face the bitter end 
    You can start all over again 
    'Cause Jesus died for you 

    You can face death with a smile 
    Laugh at all your troubles and trials 
    Never have to walk another lonely mile 
    Jesus died for you! 

    He died for you - to break the devil's hold 
    He died for you - to redeem your mortal soul 
    Don't be afraid - 'Cause you debt has done been paid 
    You just come and do your best -- The Holy Spirit's gonna do the rest! 

    He died for you - to complete salvation's plan 
    He died for you - He's got nail scars in His hands
    He bore the cross - to sanctify the lost
    All you've got to do is believe it,
    Get down on your knees and receive it! 

    Makes no difference how wrong you've been 
    How heavy is your load of sin 
    The door's still open come on in 
    'Cause Jesus died for you 
    Now you may think you're too far gone 
    You've sinned so bad you can't atone 
    But bow your head and come on home
    'Cause Jesus died for you

    Jesus died for you
    Jesus died for you​

    New Pharisees

    They go walking into church every Sunday morning
    They the self-appointed sin patrol
    Well they whisper and they gossip behind the back
    Of anybody that they can't control

    See that girl in the choir she's got evil desires
    She must be drinking from the devil's well
    She's a downright disgrace with that paint on her face
    She looks just like a Jezebel

    And they're running around putting everybody down
    What are you trying to do?
    You need to pick up the Book and take another look
    'Cause brother I've got the news for you
    You know Jesus was sent with a new covenant
    And he even died for you

    New pharisees like a fatal disease
    Always flapping your jaws trying to live by the law

    You see that boy over there with that long shaggy hair
    Ought to be ashamed of his self
    He wearing hip-hop clothes got a ring in his nose
    Don't he know he going straight to hell

    And then yesterday morning me and sister Johnson
    Were talkin' on the party line
    She said that Deacon Brown was having dinner downtown
    Somebody seen him with a glass of wine

    And you act so righteous and you look so pious
    You always pay your tithe
    But there's a rock in your heart and a fire on your tongue
    And there ain't no love in your eyes
    Bad news is begotten and the devil is smiling
    You gossip and you criticize

    New pharisees like a fatal disease
    Always flapping your jaws trying to live by the law
    Well you can't get by the law so quit flapping your jaws
    New pharisees yes, you're a lot like me​

    Praying to the Wrong God

    You got you diamonds and your cadillac
    Two thousand dollar suit across your back
    You've got your mansion out on millionaire's row
    Go all the places that the rich folks go
    Your Bible is a check book and your church is a bank
    You don't believe in charity and you don't give thanks
    For what you've got brother that's a lot
    You lie and swindle and you steal and you cheat
    You throw widows and orphans right out on the street
    You say when it comes to business it's alright to be tough
    You think your money's enough


    (first chorus)
    But you're praying to the wrong god mister
    You're living for your sensual pleasures and your evil desires
    Praying to the wrong god mister
    One of these days it's going to eat your flesh like fire, like fire
    Eat your flesh like fire
    When you need answers you don't go to the Lord
    You've got your tarot cards and ouija board
    You put your faith in scientology, in fortune tellers and astrology
    You hate your neighbors and you cheat on your wife
    You say you'll make it up in your next life
    You say all roads lead to the mountain top
    You've got a long way to drop


    (second chorus)
    And you're praying to the wrong god mister
    Satan wants to blind you to the truth and tell you all is well
    And you're praying to the wrong god mister
    You're running down a highway leading you straight to hell, to hell
    You're headed straight to hell

    Two Out of Three

    I've been thinking back over my life,
    And some of the questions I've had.
    I've thought about living,
    I've thought about dying.
    And what makes me happy or sad.
    Well most of my questions I've kept to myself,
    Like, "Why in the world was I born?"
    But the number one question I'd like to ask,
    I'd like to ask of the Lord.

    Jesus how could You love me,
    Oh sweet Jesus how could You love me.
    Cause when I had a choice between good and bad,
    I picked bad two out of three.

    What makes a man start looking around,
    When he's already got a good wife.
    What makes a man pour drink from a bottle,
    When he knows it can cut like a knife.
    Tho' some are called good,
    Some are called bad,
    We have all been tempted and charmed.
    But all of us sinners,
    The man in the sandals will welcome right back in his arms.

    Jesus how could You love me,
    Oh sweet Jesus how could You love me.
    Cause when I had a choice between good and bad,
    I picked bad two out of three.

    Jesus how could You love me,
    Oh sweet Jesus how could You love me.
    Cause when I had a choice between good and bad,
    I picked bad two out of three.

    Jesus how could You love me,
    Oh sweet Jesus how could You love me.
    Cause when I had a choice between good and bad,
    I picked bad two out of three.​

    End of the World

    Satan is our enemy, the master of evil power
    He roams around like a hungry lion seeking those that he might devour
    He'll tell you it's alright to sin just go on along for the ride
    Then when you get depressed he'll say the answer is suicide

    Don't you listen to him, he leads you down to ruin
    He prays on your weakness and your sinfulness desires
    He knows God's clock is running, he knows his time is coming
    When he'll be cast out into the everlasting fire

    Yes, God created the place of torment that all the evil will share
    But it's meant for Satan and his angels, you're not supposed to be there
    So if you're following the devil, you better heed this message well
    That path you're travelin' down is just a one way street to hell

    He's the father of confusion, his way is just delusion
    He'll blind you with flashes that would cause your head to whirl
    Think about the way you're living if you're among the unforgiven
    What you're gonna do if it comes down to the end of the world

    It's coming by and by
    It's gonna happen in the twinkling of an eye
    Where will you be standing, on his left or right?
    Bound for eternal joy or for eternal night

    You know God's door is standing open, oh, won't you come on in
    Just say, Jesus Christ I need you, please forgive me and my sins
    Now, he'll give you joy and peace of mind because he loves you so much
    And those that he holds in his hands the devil cannot touch

    Then tell another sinner, I just became a winner
    Believe it in your heart, confess it with your tongue
    And you don't have to worry, God is the judge and jury
    You've escaped the devil and awesome time to come

    It's coming by and by
    It's gonna happen in the twinkling of an eye
    Where will you be standing, on his left or right?
    Bound for eternal joy or for eternal night

    It's coming by and by
    It's gonna happen in the twinkling of an eye
    Where will you be standing, on his left or right?
    Bound for eternal joy or for eternal night

    Talking 'bout the end of the world​

    Tribulation

    In the Holy Bible it tells us of a day
    When the beast shall walk among us and many shall fall away
    Famine war and desolation nation rising against nation
    Trouble everywhere you turn
    As in the time of Noah in the days before the flood
    Sin will cool the love of man and the streets will run with blood
    Rape and murder grief and sorrow just like Sodom and Gomorrah
    This world is gonna burn

    I believe that we are living in the days John wrote about
    The end times are upon us and of that there is no doubt
    Get your mind out of the world and take your Bible off the shelf
    Read the book of revelations for yourself
    (Tribulation) I don't want to be here
    (Tribulation) when that flaming star comes down
    (Tribulation) when the seven seals are broken
    And the seven vials are opened and the seven trumpets sound

    As quick as lightning streaks from east to west across the sky
    God's faithful ones will disappear in the twinkling of an eye
    Many are called but few were chosen
    Brother don't let your heart be frozen don't you want to go
    This world will be in bondage under Satan's evil power
    The antichrist will rule until that final glorious hour
    When pain and sorrow disappear and God will wipe away all tears
    Joy forever more

    I believe that we are living...
    [ fiddle ]
    I believe that we are living...​

    Heart of My Heart

    I was blinded by bright lights, lost in the darkness
    And sin kept my life in a whirl
    Lust, greed and money and sensual pleasures
    Marked the boundaries of my narrow world

    I was headed for Hell but as far as I fell
    Your spirit still followed me down
    Then when I hit the bottom and cried out for mercy
    You picked me up off the ground

    Heart of my heart, rock of my soul
    You changed my life when You took control
    Thou will be done, God's only Son
    Faithful and true, faithful and true

    Lord of all lords, King of all kings
    Sweet sacrifice of praises we bring
    Worthy is the Lamb, all that I am
    I give to You

    Satan kept telling me that it was too late
    I'd committed the unpardonable sin
    But I knew he was lyin' when I felt conviction
    Tug on my heart strings again

    I'm not proud of the past but I can't do a thing
    To make up for the time that I've lost
    Now my heart and my soul and what life I have left
    I lay at the foot of Your Cross

    Heart of my heart, rock of my soul
    You changed my life when You took control
    Your will be done, God's only Son
    Faithful and true, Thou faithful and true

    Lord of all lords, King of all kings
    Sweet sacrifice of praises we bring
    Worthy is the Lamb, all that I am
    I give to You

    I give to You
    Heart of my heart

    Jesus

    Well I ain't nothin' nothin' but a sinner saved by grace
    Cause Jesus loved me so very much that he took my place
    (He's so good) well it should have been me up on that cross
    (He's so good) and it should have been me who paid the cost
    When I think of what he's done for me it makes me want to shout
    (Come on Christ Church Choir tell them who I'm talking about)

    (Jesus) he is the King of Kings he is the Lord of Lords
    (Jesus) his words are sharper than a double-edged sword
    (Jesus) he's the Messiah He's the hope of Israel
    (Jesus) he is more wonderful than the human tongue can tell
    (Jesus) the blind were made to see and the multitudes were fed
    (Jesus) he forgave the woman raised ol' Lazarus from the dead
    (Jesus) he's knocking on your door oh won't you let him in
    (Jesus) when you drink His water you ain't ever gonna thirst again

    You'd better listen to what the Spirit has to say
    Cause when that final trumpet sounds it's gonna be too late
    (Beneath the blood) is the everlasting light
    (Beneath the blood) we are worthy in his sight
    He's the lily of the valley he's the bright and morning star
    Don't try to clean your act up you come just the way you are
    (Jesus) He keeps His promises He'll never let you down

    (Jesus) he'll stand beside you when the tempter comes around
    (Jesus) he shed his precious blood to graft us on the vine
    (Jesus) he healed the leper turned the water into wine
    (Jesus) walked on the water and rebuked the stormy wind
    (Jesus) told Nicodemus said you must be born again
    (Jesus) his yoke is easy and his words are always true
    (Jesus) gave me a brand new heart he'll do the same for you

    (Talkin' bout Jesus)
    He is my healer he is my comforter he is my Saviour he is my friend
    He will guide me he will protect me all the way up to the end
    (Talkin' bout Jesus)
    God loved this world so very much he gave his only son for us
    He is my rock I know he'll never change
    He's comin' for me and Jesus is his name his name is Jesus​
