This song also appeared on A Very Special Time by Keith Lancaster.
Lead: Keith Lancaster and Duane Adams

Lyrics:

Oh Lord won't you come and take me home
Come and take me home
Come and take me home

I've been so lonesome on my travels here
Who could be satisfied without you near?
I've grown impatient and I just can't wait
So with your comin' Lord, don't hesitate

Chorus:
Oh won't you come and take me home
Come and take me home
Come and take me home
I'm so weary livin' here below
Come and take me home

The way You bless me Lord, it's oh so fine
I'm very thankful for the joy that's mine
With all I have now still it can't compare
With all the happiness awaiting me there

Repeat Chorus

(Won't you come and take me home) Lord won't You take me home
(Come and take me home) I need to go on home
(Come and take me home) I want to see the precious Savior
(Come and take me home)
(Uh!) Oh Lord

Repeat Chorus (x2)

"But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness."  2 Peter 3:13

Creek Don't Rise

Words and Music: Gary Moyers 1992 Clifty Music (BMI)
Lead: Gary Moyers

Lyrics:

Back on the job think I'm workin' too hard
Need a little break 'cause I'm feeling kinda tired
Rather be sittin' home sleepin' in the yard
This day's getting' awful long
Then I remember what the Lord told me
Gotta be a servant with humility
Need to keep in mind what I'm called to be
When I'm weak He is strong

Chorus:
I'm livin' this day by day
Don't think I'd make it any other way
But if the good Lord's a willin' and the creek don't rise
I'm gonna make it to the other side

(Whistling)

Used to go to church, preacher went too long
Stand up, sit down, sing another song
I was sittin' there but my mind was gone
When was this gonna end (yawn)
Now I'm a-sittin' on the very front row
Singing 'bout the Savior I've come to know
Guess I just need a little time to grow
Finally came 'round the bend
(Now I'm livin' this life)

Repeat Chorus

Back in the holler where the honeysuckle grows
Lives a little lady I've come to know
Know that she loves me 'cause she told me so
And that means a lot to me (marry that girl)
We got married on a moonlit night
She promised she'd follow if I hold on tight
Lord's gonna lead us to a brand new height
Only his eyes can see

Don't you know...
Repeat Chorus

Well if the good Lord's a willin' and the creek don't rise (We're livin' this day by day)
We're gonna make it to the other side

Scriptural Reference:

"They put him in custody until the will of the Lord should be made clear to them."  Leviticus 24:12

It's the Blood

Words and Music: Duane Adams and Gary Moyers 1992 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)/Clifty Music (BMI)
This song also appeared on Acappella Favorites by The Acappella Company and Hear It In Our Voice by The Acappella Company.
Lead: Duane Adams
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

There is a story, speaks of glory, so I've learned
Knowing the Savior, new behavior, through His words
Presence of power, at any hour, I am sure
Through my trials, no denials, I'm secure
You might not see why He cares
So I need to share (I need to share His love)

Chorus:
It's His love that shelters a wounded heart
It's His strength to a spirit that's fallen apart
It's His faithful compassion that always forgives
Through His death He has shown me how I should live
It's the blood (it's the blood), it's the blood (it's the blood)
It's the blood that He sees when He looks at me
It's the blood (it's the blood), it's the blood (it's the blood)
It's the blood that has made us free
It's the blood

I am committed, so I'm livin', standing firm
I'm still waiting, anticipating, His return (I am going home)
His words are honest, and He made a promise, of a place I'm going to (place I'm going to)
I know what He's saying and I'm still praying that He'll come soon
Safe in His arms is where I want be
I want to hold the hands that bled for me

Repeat Chorus

Oh, it's the blood (it's the blood), it's the blood (it's the blood)
It's the blood that He sees when He looks at me
It's the blood (it's the blood), it's the blood (it's the blood)
It's the blood that has made us free
It's the blood

I am going home

Scriptural Reference:

"Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water."  Hebrews 10:19-22

Regardless

Words and Music: Randy Gill 1992 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Gary Miller

Lyrics:

Regardless of who you are
Regardless of what you've done
He wants you to know, He loves you so
Regardless
Regardless of where you've been
Regardless of what you hide
There's no need to fear
He's always here
Regardless

I came to Jesus on my knees, ashamed to lift my head
I could hardly find the words, so this is what I said
There is so much wrong in my life, I cannot make it right
I've been in the dark so long that I, I cannot see the light
If I could believe someone could love me, there might be a way
If I could only hear somebody say (say)

Chorus:
Regardless of who you are
Regardless of what you've done
I want you to know, I love you so (He loves you so)
Regardless
Regardless of where you've been
Regardless of what you hide
There's no need to fear
I'm always here
Regardless

No matter what you've said or done (were before)
Or what you were before
You can begin again (you can begin, He'll take you in)
He'll take you in again

Repeat Chorus

I want you to know I love you so
Regardless

Scriptural Reference:

"If he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times comes back to you and says, 'I repent,' forgive him."  Luke 17:4

Why Can't You Write A Song Without The Bad

Words and Music: Keith Lancaster 1992 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Keith Lancaster and John Laws (stepouts)

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Why can't you write a song without the bad?
Without the fornication that you've had
Without your lust and jealousy
Have you lost all your decency?
Why can't you write a song without the bad?

Well, the preacher said "Care for you soul"
Don't listen to the rock-and-roll
How country music is the purest, sweetest sound
Well I'd believe that if I could
That all of it is so good
But decent music is harder to be found

Repeat Chorus

I can't believe what they're trying to say
On the television every day
How our music's come this far, it seems so sad (sad)
And the radio's getting rough
You know I really think we've all had enough
The new songs to be good don't have to be bad (don't have to be bad)

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Why can't you write a song without the bad? (why can't you write a song)
Without the fornication that you've had (does it have to be so bad)
Without your lust and jealousy
Have you lost all your decency?
Why can't you write a song without the bad?

Scriptural Reference:

"Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord."  Hebrews 12:14
"So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him."  2 Peter 3:14

Common Eyes

Words and Music: Gary Miller 1992 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Brian Randolph

Lyrics:

(You and I
Common eyes)

Everything about you's special
Everything about you's nice
Like to get to know you better
Look at things through common eyes

Chorus:
In this lonely world
There's nothing like a friend
Someone who really cares
Someone you can depend upon
It's so nice to know you're wanted
It's so nice to know you're loved
Maybe we could get together
Look at things through common eyes

Every time I think about you (every time)
Every time I call your name
You're my friend I love to realize
Look at things through common eyes

Repeat Chorus

(You and I
Common eyes)

Repeat Chorus

Maybe we should get together
Look at things through common eyes

"Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another."  1 John 4:11

How Great Is the Love

Words and Music: Keith Lancaster 1992 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead:
Counter lead: Max Plaster

Lyrics:

Children of God

There are names that are used for description (There are names used for description)
Others use ugly names to offend (Other names are to offend)
Some are called certain things for distinction (Some are called things for distinction)
Special names can be given a friend (Some are given to a friend)
From the heart of our Lord's love and caring (From His love and tender caring)
Comes a blessing that we don't deserve (Comes a name we don't deserve)
It's the honor that we can be wearing (It's an honor to be wearing)
The name of the God whom we serve (Special name of whom we serve)

Chorus:
How great is the love
The Father has lavished on us
That we should be called children of God
How great is the love
The father has lavished on us
That we should be called children of God

You can easily see who is knowing (You can see now who is knowing)
Telling others about Him each day (Telling 'bout Him every day)
There's a love that will set your heart glowing (Love will set your heart a glowing)
When your Father has great things to say (Hearing what He has to say)
It's a love that's unlike any other (Love that's unlike any other)
With a feeling, most healing by far (Feeling, healing, best by far)
Even more that the love of a brother (Even more than of a brother)
Through a name telling all whose we are (Telling all just whose we are)

Repeat Chorus (x2, with echoes)

Scriptural Reference:

"How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him."  1 John 3:1

Lord Bless Our Home

Words and Music: Gary Miller 1992 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Gary Miller

Lyrics:

Like a fairy tale from a story book
A boy meets girl and love's first look
They will pledge their love
They will give their lives
Forever and ever no compromise
But the struggles and worries come sneakin' around
Nearly breakin' their hearts never makin' a sound
Lovin' each other's where strength is found
Lifting our voices and praying out loud (we pray out loud)

Chorus:
Lord bless our home (Please bless our home)
Fill it with peace and joy and love
Join our hearts from heaven above (Lord please bless)
Lord please bless our home
Lord bless our home

Lord bless our home

Holding hands (sharing hearts) as we're sharing hearts
Living moments (loving starts) where loving starts
It's a simple pleasure (without end) that knows no end
Not just family members (family, faithful friends) but faithful friends
Singing and laughing and playin' around
In a world full of noise, such a heavenly sound
But lovin' each other's where strength is found
Lifting our voices and praying out loud (we pray out loud)

Repeat Chorus

(Crazy world) It's a crazy old world we're livin' in
(Crowdin' in) Unimportant things they come crowdin' in
(Heed this call) We can win the whole world but heed this call
(Win it all) If we lose our loved ones we've lost it all

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Scriptural Reference:

"The Lord 's curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the righteous."  Proverbs 3:33
