Free to Run

Words and Music: Jim McCardell  1992 Jim McCardell/Zane King Publishing (BMI)
Arrangement: John Thompson
Lead: John Thompson

Lyrics:

Free to run the race!

Yeah!

Night is falling now, blood is on the brow, free to run the race
Nailed to the wood, power in the blood, died in my place
Common legacy, common victory, free to run the race
We're all pure in Jesus eyes, running for the prize, mark of holiness
Hall of famers who've gone before us a hundred million strong
And your faith in Jesus will never fail you though the road is long
And we're...

Chorus 1:
Free to run yeah we're free to run the race (free to run the race)
Yeah we're free to run, yeah we're free to run the race (free to run the race)
Eyes of faith to fend attack, plant the banner and no turning back
Free to run, yeah we're free to run the race

Running through the rain, storms and rough terrain though on solid ground
We have guidance from the Lord, Devil's snares avoid running for the crown
We are casting off the weight, Savior's storms abate when my faith is down
You know life is in the death, free is every breath when we choose the Son
Live a life of holiness bought with a fearful price
And we're called to liberty, called a family, we're called to sacrifice
And we're...

Chorus 2:
Free to run yeah we're free to run the race (free to run the race)
Yeah we're free to run, yeah we're free to run the race (free to run the race)
King and Savior on high adored let the people sing, "Jesus is Lord!"
Free to run, yeah we're free to run the race

We're free to run, run, run

King and Savior on high adored, let the people sing, "Jesus is Lord!"
Free to run, free to run the race

Freedom, free to run the race

We're free to run

Free to run (we are free to run) the race!

Scriptural Reference:

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us."  Hebrews 12:1

Showdown at Calvary

Words and Music: Jeffrey D. Kreh  1994 Jeffrey D. Kreh
Lead: Matthew Nunnally

Lyrics:

It's the showdown at Calvary, the Man is hanging in pain
And now the time has come to see which one will remain
Hear Him cry, "Father, Father, lama sabachthani!"
As He waits for His time to come, when for the world He would die

Chorus 1:
I was the one (was the one) who drove the nails, my bloody sword pierced His side
I was the one (was the one) casting my lots as the Lord Jesus died
I was the one (I was the one) convicted and tried, condemned to eternal death
I was the one (I was the one) for whom the Lord died breathing His very last breath

From the first till the end of time there can be only one
Sacrifice laid at the feet of God, Holy Messiah, the Son
Father cries, Jesus dies, walks through (walks through) hell's fiery realm (hell's fiery realm)
Purged of sin (purged of sin which was) which was not His own, legacy of redemption beheld

Chorus 2:
You know I was the one (was the one) who drove the nails, my bloody sword it pierced His side
Hey I was the one (was the one) I was casting my lots as the Lord my Jesus He died
I was the one (I was the one) convicted and tried, condemned to eternal death
I was the one (I was the one) for whom the Lord died breathing His very last breath

Scriptural Reference:

"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."  Romans 5:8
"He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him."  1 Thessalonians 5:10

I Did This For You

Words and Music: Philip Organ  1994 Philip Organ
Lead: Brent Allen

Lyrics:

As I stood there looking up everything grew silent
My life flashed before my eyes
I tried to see how I even mattered
Or why I ever lived my life

(From the foot of the cross) I saw a man (From the foot of the cross) who touched my life
In a way that no one else could do
(From the foot of the cross) His eyes looked down (From the foot of the cross) upon my face
And His eyes said to me, "I did this for you"

I had to turn away because of my shame
I couldn't keep on looking in His eyes
I heard His voice cry out, and felt His last breath
And then He died

I followed them as they took Him to the tomb
I knew that it should have been me
If I had known what was to come
Then I still would have been surprised to see (still would have been surprised to see)
Then I still would have been surprised to see...

(From the front of the tomb) I saw the man (From the front of the tomb) who touched my life
In a way that no one else could ever do
(From the front of the tomb) He looked at me (From the front of the tomb) with life anew
And His eyes said to me, "I did this for you"

His eyes said to me, "I did this for you"

"I did this for you" (I did this for you, I did this for you, I did this for you)

Scriptural Reference:

"For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died.  And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again."  2 Corinthians 5:14-15

This I Know

Words and Music: John Thompson  1994 John Thompson
Translation: Monte Cox
Lead: Philip Organ, John Thompson, Keith Brooks, Matthew Nunnally, and Brent Allen

Lyrics:

Hivi nina, Hivi na joua (x3)

There once was a man who was born in Bethlehem, what a sight to see
He was a sinless God in human likeness, like you and me
You see He was the perfect plan to set us all free, this I know

Chorus 1:
And do you remember there was a time when you had no hope of goin' to heaven
Like a shot in the dark there was a light and it was Jesus Christ
I'm going to heaven, to heaven, this I know

Sinless God was taken up a hill and nailed to a tree
Well God's perfect plan was carried out that day on Calvary
Then three days later He walked away and took the victory, this I know

Chorus 2:
And do you remember there was a time when you had to face sins consequences
Then like a shot in the dark there was a light and it was Jesus Christ
Who destroyed Satan fences, this I know

If there's one thing that I know that assures my way to heaven
It's that Christ is coming back and He's in my life 24 and 7, this I know

If there's one thing that I know that I can tell you
Christ rose from the grave and conquered death too
He's alive and this is true, and He's coming back, this I know (this I know)

And do you remember there was a time when you had no hope
Then like a shot in the dark there was a light and it was Jesus Christ
I'm going to heaven
Jesus loves me this I know (Hivi nina, Hivi na joua), this I know (Hivi nina, Hivi na joua),
This I know (Hivi nina, Hivi na joua), this I know (this I know that)
Christ, Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ, He's alive!
He's alive!, He's alive!, He's alive!, He's alive!

He's alive!, He's alive!, He's alive!, He's alive!, He's alive!, He's alive!

Scriptural Reference:

"And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven"  Luke 1:76-78

King of Kings

Words and Music: Jeffrey D. Kreh  1994 Jeffrey D. Kreh
Lead: Brent Allen

Lyrics:

Chorus:
King of Kings and Lord of Lords glory hallelujah
King of Kings and Lord of Lords forever the same
King of Kings and Lord of Lords glory hallelujah
King of Kings and Lord of Lords glory praise His name

Repeat Chorus

Written through the tapestry of time there is a legend
Of a man who loved until the bride took His life
Living in her broken world of lies and deception
As He takes her pain and sin, easing her strife

A call comes ringing out across the plain
Telling us that Jesus Christ is risen - Again (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Repeat Chorus

Found within society is poverty and hating
When it comes to knowing who the life giver is
Sitting back in padded pews we're not contemplating
Going out to all the world and making them His

And so the cross it would seem was for vain
(forever and ever,forever and ever,forever and ever,forever and ever)
Still the call rings telling all He's risen - Again (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Chorus (with below)
King of Kings (forever and ever, hallelujah, hallelujah)
And Lord of Lords (forever and ever, hallelujah, hallelujah)

King of Kings and Lords hallelujah (repeat with below)
And He shall reign forever, He shall reign forever
He shall reign forever, He shall reign forever
King of Kings, Lord of Lords (and ever), King of Kings (He shall reign forever)

King of Kings, King of Kings, King of Kings
King of Kings!

Scriptural Reference:

"In the sight of God, who gives life to everything, and of Christ Jesus, who while testifying before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I charge you to keep this command without spot or blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God will bring about in his own time--God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen."  1 Timothy 6:13-16

On My Own

Words: Philip Organ and John Thompson  1994 John Thompson
Music: John Thompson  1994 John Thompson
Lead: John Thompson

Lyrics:

My mind tells me one thing but my heart won't say the same
When I follow my mind it almost always leads to pain
My heart is where the truth is and it always leads me
To the one who I adore, the one who'll love me forever more
There's no way (no I'm not on my own) that I can make it (no I'm not on my own)
On my own (no I'm not on my own), on my own (not on my own)

I sit within the hand of my Father up above
Who came to me to prove all of His love
He had just one intention to give eternity
So hold me close to your heart, don't let me go, don't even start
To let go (no I'm not on my own) I need your strength (no I'm not on my own)
Although I've grown (no I'm not on my own) I still can't make it (not on my own)

On my own (no I'm not on my own)
No one can help me (no I'm not on my own) but Jesus Christ (no I'm not on my own)
He is the love (not on my own) love of my life

No I'm not on my own
No I'm not on my own
No I'm not on my own
Not on my own

There's no way that I can make it on my own
There's just no way that I can make it on my own

"Devise your strategy, but it will be thwarted; propose your plan, but it will not stand, for God is with us."  Isaiah 8:10

My God

Words and Music: Philip Organ  1994 Philip Organ
Lead: John Thompson

Lyrics:

His hand alone can lift us higher than we deserve
His heart alone can love us like no other love
He carries me and gives me everything
(My God) He helps me to see

Chorus 1:
My God, my God, my God is living
My God, my God, my God, He's able
My God, my God, my God, you know my God (is God) is God

His arms alone can reach to my every need
His strength alone can rescue me
He watches over me and hears my every need
(My God) He sets me free

Chorus 2:
My God, my God, my God is living
My God, my God, my God is able to do so much more than we can imagine
By His power in me (and by His power in me)
By His power in me

Chorus 3:
My God, my God, my God is living
My God, my God, my God is able
My God, my God, my God you know my God is (is my God), is living (my God), is able (my God)
My God is God

Arrangement: John Thompson
Lead: Matthew Nunnally

Lyrics:

What happened to the dream we new
Everybody having something to live for
Seems we've forgotten where we're going to
And all the reasons for the things we do
And we just stack another stone in place
Until the walls we're facing seem so high
Sometimes it's enough to make you cry
It's time to dry your weepin' eyes

Chorus 1:
Let's build a bridge, tear down the walls
Goin' up climbing higher and higher
Let's build a bridge, take us across
Hand in hand climbing higher and higher

Life gives us problems, it hands us pain
These are the stones of self-destruction
We've got the power to bring a brighter day
If we'll only help each other make a change
And let it take us to a higher place
So we can see the world for what it is
It's not impossible to break the chains
There is a way if you'll take it

Repeat Chorus 1
(Let's build a bridge, let's build a bridge)

We can build a bridge, we can build a bridge, we can, we can build a bridge (build a bridge)

Repeat Chorus 1

Let's build a bridge (oh)

Chorus 2:
Let's build a bridge (I know we can), tear down the walls (we can build it)
Goin' up climbing higher and higher (we)
Let's build a bridge (let's build a bridge), take us across (we can do it, yeah)
Hand in hand climbing higher and higher (higher and higher) (higher)

Chorus 3:
Let's build a bridge, (oh) tear down the walls
Goin' up climbing higher and higher (I'm gonna' reach glory, yeah)
Let's build a bridge, take us across (oh)
Hand in hand climbing higher and higher (take me higher)
Let's build a bridge, let's build a bridge (build a bridge)

Repeat Chorus 1

Chorus 4:
Let's build a bridge, tear down the walls (we can tear those walls down)
Goin' up climbing higher and higher (and build a bridge)
Let's build a bridge, take us across (higher)
Hand in hand climbing higher and higher (get together and build a bridge)

Chorus 5:
Let's build a bridge (let's build a bridge), tear down the walls
Goin' up climbing higher and higher (let's build it)
Let's build a bridge (let's build a bridge), take us across
Hand in hand climbing higher and higher

Let's build a bridge, let's build a bridge, let's build a bridge, let's build a bridge
