Lyrics:

I know this is an evil world
That we all live in
Full of pain, strife and struggles
And at times we hurt way, way down deep within
Jesus shed his blood for you and me
On this journey He's by my side
He has set a sinner like me free
Love is the power that makes everything all right

Forget about your heartaches and troubles
Leave them all behind
Let your hope, joy and love
This only in Jesus we can find
We are loved so much
What peace living in His light
What a wonderful Savior
Love is the power that makes everything all right

I can't help but love Him
Look at what He has done
On the cross, shed His blood and died
Arose with power to save everyone

I can't help but love Him
He's been so good in my life
What a wonderful Savior
Love is the power that makes everything all right

You know that love, love, love
Makes everything all right, all right
You know that love, love, love
Makes everything all right

I can't help but love Him
He's been so good in my life
What a wonderful Savior
Love is the power that makes everything all right
Love, love, love makes everything all right, all right
I know that love, love, love makes everything all right
When I'm feeling down, I have a Savior that I can count on
I know that Jesus, he's the one, he's the one for me... and you
Don't you know that love is the power, love is the power
All you got to do is love
Love, love, love (fade)

"And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us."  Romans 5:5

Movin', gotta keep movin'

Well every one of us is in a race
And we're running for the prize

Throw off every weight that slows you down
Take that path that Christ has led
Forget everything that is behind
And just strain toward what's ahead
And just keep on

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Well everyday we have to make a choice
Say true to what is right
Overcome everything that's in our way
And fix our eyes on Christ
Just keep pressing on up toward the goal
Where a crown of life you'll find
Well no doubt Christ will be waiting there
When we cross the finish line
And we just keep

Willing to die for even me

Standing Right in Front of You

Words and music: Keith Lancaster 1999 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Barry Wilson
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

The Way, the Truth, the Life, the Victory

As the King of Kings was questioned by Pilate long ago
He declared His kingdom different not of this world
A kingdom for the side of truth like none has ever been
Pilate asked, What is truth?
He was standing right in front of him

Truth was standing right in front of him
As plain as anything could ever be
Truth was standing right in front of him
He was standing there for all the world to see
The Way, The Truth, the Life, the Victory

Stephen, first beloved martyr, gave up his life for Him
Being stoned by angry people filled with revenge
Where was God when all this happened?
Stephen looked into the sky, he was never alone
God was standing right in front of him

Truth was standing right in front of him
As plain as anything could ever be
Truth was standing right in front of him
Revealed to him for comfort and to see
He was standing there for his delivery

Now the quest for truth continues until this very day
But the source that we should seek is not of this world
A truth that is revealed by God, the Spirit's made it clear
If you ask what is truth? He is standing right in front of you

Truth is standing right in front of you
As plain as anything could ever be
Truth is standing right in front of you
Standing there for all eternity
The Way, the Truth, the Life, the Victory

He is standing right in front of you
Showing love for open eyes to see
Jesus is standing right in front of you
Standing there for He will always be
The Son of Man, the Son of God
The King of Kings, the Lord of Lords
The Way, the Truth, the Life, the Victory

Scriptural Reference:

"'What is truth?' Pilate asked.  With this he went out again to the Jews and said, 'I find no basis for a charge against him."  John 18:38
"But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God."  Acts 7:55

I Know You Know

Lead: Barry Wilson
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

Do you know, do you care
Do you know what's waiting there
Do you see, can you feel
Don't you know His love is real?

And I know, yes I know you know
You know, I know you know

Do you know, have you heard
Truthful message from His Word
Do you see, Can you hear?
What is gonna happen here

And I know, yes I know you know
You know, and I know you know

Bridge:
Would you like me to say it clear?
No more tickling your ears
Would you like me to share my mind?
This is what you'll find

God is big and I'm so small
My life's not worth much at all
Jesus made my soul brand new
And if you wish He'll do the same for you

(repeat song up to bridge)

Scriptural Reference:

"Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth."  John 17:17

Chorus:
Jesus knows what I'm going through
Jesus knows what I need to do
Jesus is there when I ask Him to
Jesus will carry me through

Repeat Chorus

When I was a child I was afraid of the dark
Today I'm scared of things I can see
But if I just keep walking on down that road
I know that Jesus walks in front of me

Repeat Chorus

When I get discouraged and I lose my way
And I'm blinded by the wrong that I do
If I trust in Jesus He will show me the way
He will always carry me through

Repeat Chorus (x2)

I know that my Jesus He cares for you
Jesus He cares for you

I know that my Jesus cares (Jesus, He cares for you)
I know that he loves you (Jesus, He cares for you)
I know that my Jesus loves you
I know that sometimes you might feel a little burden (Jesus, He cares for you)
I know that sometimes you may need a friend (Jesus, He cares for you)

I know that my Jesus, my Jesus, cares for you (my Jesus, my Jesus, my-my-my Jesus)

Well, I know I have a friend in Jesus (Jesus, He cares for you)
He looks past my faults and sees my needs (Jesus, He cares for you)
He loves me just for me (Jesus, He cares for you)
I know He loves you (Jesus, He cares for you)

(Well, I know that) Jesus will carry me through
(I'm sure that) Jesus will carry me through
(I'm glad that) Jesus will carry me through

Scriptural Reference:

"To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps."  1 Peter 2:21
"Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.  For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are--yet was without sin.  Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."  Hebrews 4:14-16

Abba Father

Words and music: Gary Moyers and Kevin Schaffer  1999 Clifty Music
This song also appeared on Life by New Reign and in Spanish as "Abba Padre" on Voces by Voces.
Lead: Ken McAlpin, Barry Wilson (Chorus stepout), Kevin Schaffer (Chorus stepout)
Sample: Windows Media
Video: Windows Media (broadband connection needed)

Lyrics:

Somebody feels hopeless
Somebody despairs
Somebody walks a path alone
Watching others walk around in pairs
Somebody's in the street now
Somebody's in doubt
Somebody has no place to go
Somebody cries out saying

Abba, Father, take me higher
Abba, Father, take me home

Somebody is hungry
Somebody's in pain
Somebody sleeps alone in fear
Somebody's in shame
Somebody needs a friend to lean on
Somebody's not there
Somebody's looking at the end
Somebody's in prayer, praying

Chorus:
Abba, Father, take me higher
[You're not alone (know you're not)
Somebody's there (you know we've got)
The Lord to guide our way
To help us make it through the day]
Abba, Father, take me home
[You're not alone (know you're not)
Somebody's there (you know we've got)
The Lord our Father to take us home
Take us home, Father, take us home, Father]

Abba, Father

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Take me home
Take me home, Father
Father please, take me home
Abba, Father

Scriptural Reference:

"For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship.  And by him we cry, 'Abba, Father.' The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.  Now if we are children, then we are heirs--heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory."  Romans 8:15-17 (1-17 cited on insert)
"Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit woh calls out, 'Abba, Father.'"  Galatians 4:6

Lyrics:

I am ready, oh so ready
Ready now to go

I can see heaven open, open, open
I can see heaven open for me (yes, for me)
I can hear angels singing, singing, singing
I can hear angels singing for me

Don't be late as you're coming, coming, coming
Don't be late and don't make it so slow (don't be slow)
I can see angels coming, coming, coming
I can see and I'm ready to go

I'm ready to (x8)

Go, yes I'm ready to meet Him
In my heart I am ready to go
And my soul now is ready to greet Him
In my heart I am ready to know

I can stop this homesick feeling
Long for joy and healing
In the presence of the Savior
I'm contented
Safety in His arms I feel
Living with my Lord is real
On the other side

(repeat song from first verse)

I am ready, I am ready to go (repeat and fade)

"Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed."  1 Peter 1:13

Begins

Words and music: Gary Miller 1999 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Gary Moyers
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

To an aged man God spoke
Words that sounded like a joke
Soon his wife would bear a child
A saying hard to reconcile
So he asked, can this thing be?
Can a nation spring from me?
With a body grown so old
In a word this man was told

Chorus:
Your life begins with God
Your love begins with God
Your hopes and your dreams
And your plans begin with God
Your life begins with God
Your love begins with God
Your hopes and your dreams
And your plans begin with God, begin with God

From a valley full of bones
To a man of God, well known
Came a vision strange but true
Mighty things the Lord would do
He would breathe them back to life
His command caused them to rise
Like the nation He would raise
To the glory of His praise

Repeat Chorus

I was standing on the edge of the world
Hopelessly alone in the dark
In the beginning all was empty and void
In my mind, my soul, my heart of hearts
The Creator came and moved in my life
He spoke and turned my darkness to light
Day by day He's rearranging my ways
He's my Lord, my God, my King

To a leper on his face
To a woman's dark disgrace
To a prisoner's empty night
To a blind man's quest for sight
To a mother's boy lying dead (you're not alone)
To a beggar's plea for bread (you're not alone)
To a lame man's crippled bones (you're not alone)
To a stranger's journey home (you're going home)

Repeat Chorus

Begins with God (Begin with God, Begin with God)
Begins with God (Begin with God, Begin with God)
Begins with God (Begin with God, Begin with God)

Scriptural Reference:

"By faith Abraham, even though he was past age--and Sarah herself was barren--was enabled to become a father because he considered him faithful who had made the promise.  and so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore." Hebrews 11:11-12 (insert cites all of Hebrews 11)

All That I Need

Words and music: Ken McAlpin, Gary Moyers, Kevin Schaffer, and Barry Wilson  1999 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)/Clifty Music (BMI)
Lead: Gary Moyers
Spoken Vocal: Chris Mitchell
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

[He's the ruler of righteousness
He's the authority of the ages
He's the holiness of heaven
He's the God of glory
He's the King of Kings
And he's the Lord of Lords
That's my Christ
And I want you to come and know Him
For yourself]

Living to please my Lord and Savior
Changing my life and my behavior
Making new choices that will favor Him
Looking above, my aim is higher
Trusting in Him is my desire
Making it day to day requires Him
All I ever wanted was truth
All I ever needed was You

Chorus:
All that I want is Jesus
All that I want is Him
All that I need is mercy
Making me free from sin
All that I want is Jesus
All that I want is Him
All that I need is mercy
Making me free from sin

[Do you want to know Him]

Knowing the truth no longer guessing
Every morning I'm confessing
Daily I'm thanking You for blessing me
Taking control He fills my yearning
Now that I know there's much I'm learning
Knowing my Lord will soon return for me

All I ever knew had no use
All I ever need comes from You

Repeat Chorus

[You need to know Him]

All I ever knew had no use
All I ever need comes from You

Repeat Chorus

Praise Him, praise to the Lord
All that I want is Jesus
All that I want is Him
Praise Him, praise to the Lord
All that I need is mercy
Making me free from sin

All that I want is Jesus, all that I want is Him (repeat through speech)

[He's the key to knowledge
He's the wealth of wisdom
He's the dawn of deliverance
He's the road to redemption
He's the highway to holiness
He's the gateway to glory
Don't you want to know him?
His love is limitless
His word is wonderful
His reign is righter
His yoke is easy and
His burden is lighter
Oh! I wish I could introduce you to Him adequately
But actually he's indescribably irresistible
He's invincible
He's incomprehensible
He's incomparable
Yes, you can live with Him
But you can't live without Him
Yes, the Pharisees, they tested Him
But they found out they couldn't defeat Him
Pilate could not find any fault in Him
Herod couldn't harm Him
Death couldn't handle Him and
The grave couldn't hold Him
That's my Christ
That's my Lord and
That's my Jesus
Well, thine is the kingdom
The power and the glory
Forever, and ever and ever
And after you get through with all the forevers
You ought to be able to say Amen]

All I need

Scriptural Reference:

"So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.  But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own."  Matthew 6:31-34
