Can I Come

Words and music: Brian Fuller and Hank Bingham 2001 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
This song also appeared on Can I Come by The Firemen.
Lead:
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

I look upon life, the continuous struggle
A roller coaster of ups and downs
It seems like my days, they consist of a puzzle
With a picture that always ends in a frown

Chorus:
Can I come (can I come) to You with my problems?
Can I come (can I come) to You with my needs?
Can I come (can I come) to You with my troubles?
Oh Lord, I need Your help to believe

There's a man on the street, He's looking so lonely
The pain in his eyes is all I see
He's without a home, he's without a family
The outside of him is like the inside of me

Repeat Chorus

With my eyes on the cross, things seem much better
My troubles have all been lifted away
I still get down, but that doesn't really matter
When I get on my knees, lift up my voice and say

I will come (I will come) to You with my problems?
I will come (I will come) to You with my needs?
I will come (I will come) to You with my troubles?
Oh Lord, I need Your help to believe

I sit with a friend, we talk about heaven
And about how great that day will be
When we gather around, singing His glory
And about how good it feels to be free

We will come (we will come) to You with my problems?
We will come (we will come) to You with my needs?
We will come (we will come) to You with my troubles?
Oh Lord, I need Your help to believe

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Oh Lord, I need Your help to believe
Oh Lord, I need Your help to believe

Scriptural Reference:

"Jesus replied, 'If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.'"  John 14:23

Can You See His Blood?

Words and music: Brian Fuller 2001 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead:
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

Oh Mary - she was wailin' there
At the foot of the cross
She saw his blood
The others - they were kneelin' there
They saw the Savior
And they saw His blood

Chorus:
Can you see His blood
Can you feel His love
When He was crucified
He gave you all He could
Jesus who died
He is glorified
But tell me
Can you see His blood?

(Can you see His blood?)

When you pass the cup
What are you thinkin' of
Do you pray to the Father
Do you pray to the Son
Can you see the nails
And can you feel the thorns
And can you tell me
Can you see His blood?

Repeat Chorus

Jesus He was put to death (put to death) for our sin
And He shed His blood (shed His blood) 'cause He loved
We've been given all we need (all we need) through God's Son
Jesus gave us life! (It is finished)

Repeat Chorus (x2)

But tell me
Can you see His blood?

Oh I really want to know
Can you see Him hanging there on the tree?
Bleeding there for you and me
Tell me, tell me, tell me can you see...

Scriptural Reference:

"For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross."  Colossians 1:19-20

Let Me See

Words and music: Brian Fuller 2001 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Dub: Marlon Browne
Lead:

Lyrics:

Imagine a scene in Heaven you know it's a sunny day
All the angel band together working to perfect their play
Then comes the announcement from way across the sea
It's another bithday everybody to your feet

Chorus:
Let me see, lemme see standin' at the edge of heaven
He pushes apart the clouds as the sun shines down
I wanna be, wanna be there with all the saints and angels
As heaven waits to see a child being born

While everybody's pushing to get a better view
Heaven seems to tilt a bit as the Holy Father rushes through
And on His loving face there grows a great big smile
The voices get real quiet now but just for a little while

Repeat Chorus

We read that there's rejoicing when a lost one finds his way
But do we start to think about that awesome party on that day
When all of those who gather with God to see the view
See the old man die, the sin wash off, and the child that is brand new

Repeat Chorus

It's island time now...
We're happy in the resurrection party
And at the table we have enough for plenty
And all the troubles from this life done long time passed
And we never thought we'd never run empty
So if you're tired of the life that you're livin'
Yes and you're sick of what you're partakin'
Well then come with me
Come party with your new family

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Scriptural Reference:

"Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God-- children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God."  John 1:12-13

Higher Perspective

Words and music: Lynn Hunt 2001 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead: James McDuffie
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

Yet my weakness is made perfect in your unfailing love...

The things I do may not mean much they seem so insufficient
I don't understand how these poor gifts can bring such delight to you
With each small step I take, I take two in the wrong direction
Yet you're always by my side gently guiding me

Chorus:
I'm not perfect Lord, I never will be
Please help me to see from a higher perspective
I am weak and afraid stumbling along the way
And my weakness is made perfect in your unfailing love

I'm frustrated by myself, by my self-indulgence
Perfection seems so far (so far away), seems so far away
But even as I mourn (even as I mourn), as I mourn my failures
You make my failures work for good and you morn my self defeat (and you keep on loving me)
And you morn my self defeat

Repeat Chorus

I can't compare myself to others
You made me unique
I can't wait for a change in myself
You've already made me complete
I can't submit to self-pity
As the demons in hell do
I can only cast my fears, my doubts,
My inhibitions on you

You make me perfect Lord
You put your soul in me
And you help me to see
From a higher perspective
You give me strength when I'm afraid
You show me a better way
And my weakness is made perfect in your unfailing love
And my weakness is made perfect in your unfailing love
And my weakness is made perfect in your unfailing love (repeat with stepouts)

Scriptural Reference:

"But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me."  2 Corinthians 12:19

Pharaoh

Words and music: Jason Killins 2001 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead:
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

When I was down in Egypt land
I saw his face and man I ran
I could tell there was no love in that man
O Pharoah a wicked evil man
He had a heart as cold as ice
He could have changed but he never did try
So God let it grow it got colder than snow
Pharoah he was a wicked evil man

Chorus:
Pharoah a wicked man
O Pharoah a wicked evil man
When I was down in Egypt land
Pharoah a wicked evil man

When Moses turned the water of the Nile to blood
Pharoah should've realized the hole that he dug
Cause in came the frogs, the gnats, and the flies
But Pharoah just kept tellin' Moses lies
Well death to the livestock, boils, and hail
Locust, darkness, and the first born wail
Pharoah he finally couldn't take anymore (couldn't take anymore)
He said: get your crazy people and head out the door

Repeat Chorus

Moses and the people they booked it out
And Pharoah he started to have his doubts
What have we done we've let those Israelites go
Now no one is serving us Oh No!
So all of Pharoahs horses and all their men
Jumped in their chariots and chased after them
And all of God's people so faithful and brave said:
Moses why'd you bring us here to dig our grave?
So Moses stretched his hand out over the sea
And God made a path so that they could be free
When Pharoah and his army were close to the shore
The waters came down . . .
And Egypt knew God was Lord!

Repeat Chorus

Pharoah a wicked evil man
Pharoah now let my people go (home)

Scriptural Reference:

"Moses and Aaron did just as the Lord had commanded. He raised his staff in the presence of Pharaoh and his officials and struck the water of the Nile, and all the water was changed into blood."  Exodus 7:20
"During the night Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, 'Up! Leave my people, you and the Israelites! Go, worship the Lord as you have requested.'  Exodus 12:31
"As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up, and there were the Egyptians, marching after them. They were terrified and cried out to the Lord.  They said to Moses, "Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt?"  Exodus 14:10-11

Lead:
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

I'm looking at you old friend of mine
It's no use pretending that everything's fine
Now don't be so brave, don't be so proud
I want you to know that I'm here for you now
I can see you hurting and it's hurting me
It doesn't have to be this way

Chorus:
If you'd let me hold you closer (Somebody gonna hold your head up) (Somebody gonna show you the light)
Let me know you (Somebody gonna hold your head up) (Somebody gonna see you right)
Let me show you the way (Somebody gonna hold your head up) (Somebody gonna show you the light)

I'm feeling for you, feeling so much
When this heart is big enough for the both of us, oh yes
I'll give you my love if you give me your pain
I'll hold it inside of me till you're stronger again
Well I hate seeing you so far away
When not a word can say enough (say enough)

Repeat Chorus

The way, let me show you the way
The way, I'll be your rock for this day
When I hear you calling out my name
Cause I know you'd only do the same for me

(Somebody gonna hold your head up) (Somebody gonna show you the light)
(Somebody gonna hold your head up) (Somebody gonna see you right)
Let me show you the way (Somebody gonna hold your head up) (Somebody gonna show you the light)

Repeat Chorus

Hold you closer (and let me hold you closer)...

I Know a Man (His Name is Jesus)

Words and music: James McDuffie and Brian Fuller 2001 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
This song also appeared on Kaboom! by The Firemen.
Lead: James McDuffie

Lyrics:

Chorus:
I know a man (I know a man), His name is Jesus
He died for you and He died for me
He gave us a chance to be free
I know a man (I know a man), He said He won't forsake me
Whether times are up or times are down
My Savior He will be

Looking at old Peter walking on the water
Jesus reached down and He saved him from the sea
Later on in his life, he denied the Christ
All the failures he had known he had the strength to keep on
Then one Sunday morning all the people gathered round
Peter got up in the pulpit, and they heard a mighty sound
When he said...

Repeat Chorus

There's a precious woman headed for the well now
Jesus met her right there, He had so much to tell
Water's what you're wanting, life is what you're needing
Stop living in your sins, dear, is what you need to hear
She left that jar of water in the place she stood
Others tried to calm her down y'all, but no one ever could
And she said ..

Repeat Chorus

Take some time to listen to my final story
It's about a lame man laying out by the pool
He had been there so long, things kept going wrong
Until my Jesus came by and looked him in the eye
Wasn't long till that man had himself a plan
Running to everybody, and telling about the healing lamb
And He said...

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
He's da Man, He's da Man
Jesus Christ, He's da Man
He's da Man, He's da Man
Jesus Christ, He's da Man

Repeat Bridge (with stepouts)

He's da Man (He's the one)
He's da Man (He died for you)
He's da Man

Repeat Chorus (x2)

My Savior He will be
My Savior He will be

"You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly."  Romans 5:6

The Little Girl

Words and music: Harley Allen 2000 Coburn Music, Inc. (BMI)
Lead:

Lyrics:

Her parents never took the young girl to church
Never spoke of His name
Never read her His word
Two non-believers walking lost in this world
Took their baby with them
What a sad little girl

Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs
Never wanted to play
Or give kisses and hugs
She'd watch the TV and sit there on the couch
While her mom fell asleep
And her daddy went out

And the drinking and the fighting
Just got worse every night
Behind their couch she'd be hiding
Oh what a sad little life

And like it always does, the bad just got worse
With every slap and every curse
Until her daddy in a drunk rage one night
Used a gun on her mom and then took his life

And some people from the city took the girl far away
To a new mom and dad
And kisses and hugs everyday

What a sad little girl (sad little girl, sad little girl)
Such a sad little girl (sad little girl, sad little girl)
What a sad little girl (sad little girl, sad little girl)
Such a sad little girl (sad little girl, sad little girl)

Her first day of Sunday school the teacher walked in
And a small little girl
Stared a picture of Him
She said I know that man up there on that cross
I don't know His name
But I know He got off

He was there in my old house
And held me close to His side
As I hid there behind our couch
The night that my parents died

What a sad little girl (sad little girl, sad little girl)
Such a sad little girl (sad little girl, sad little girl)
What a sad little girl (sad little girl, sad little girl)

"The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."  Deuteronomy 31:8

Love kept Him on the earth (on the earth)

His love would nail Him to a tree (Calvary)

Chorus:
Jesus is nothin' but love
He was sent from above
Jesus is love (Jesus is love)
Jesus is nothin' but love
Nothin' but love
Jesus, He is love

Once I was lost in sin (all my sin)
My Jesus took me in (what a friend)
His love has set me free yeah (pardon for you and me)
Even though I'm a mortal man (just a man)
I'm part of a greater plan (awesome plan)
God gave salvation to me (He set me free)

Repeat Chorus

He gave the love (He gave the love), He paid the price (He paid the price)
He rose again, His name is Jesus Christ

Dive

Words and music: Steven Curtis Chapman 1999 Sparrow Song/Peach Hill Songs (BMI)
Lead:
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

The long awaited rains have fallen hard upon the thirsty ground
And carve their way to where the wild and rushing river can be found
And like the rains I have been carried here to were the river flows (where the river flows, where the river flows)
My heart is racing and my knees are weak as I walk to the edge
I know there is no turning back once my feet have left the ledge
And in the rush I hear a voice that's telling me its time
To take the leap of faith so here I go

Chorus:
I'm divin' in, I'm goin' deep, in over my head I wanna be
Caught in the rush, lost in the flow, in over my head I wanna go
The river's deep, the river's wide, the river's water is alive
So sink or swim I'm divin' in, I'm divin' in, I'm divin' in

There is a supernatural power in this mighty rivers flow
It can bring the dead to life and it can fill an empty soul
And give our hearts the only thing worth livin' and worth dyin' for (worth livin' for, worth livin' for)
We can never know the awesome power of the grace of God
Until we let ourselves get swept away into his holy flood
So if you'll take my hand we'll close our eyes and count to three
And take the leap of faith come on let's go!

Repeat Chorus

I'm divin' in, yeah, I'm divin' in
Here I go
C'mon let's go!

Repeat Chorus (x2)

So sink or swim I'm divin' in
So sink or swim I'm divin' in

Repeat Chorus (with stepout of "I'm divin' in")

Scriptural Reference:

"Rescue me from the mire, do not let me sink; deliver me from those who hate me, from the deep waters."  Psalm 69:14
