Lead: Barry Wilson and Andrew McNeil

Lyrics:

Chorus:
(Two Hearts, one dream)
May we know the love of Jesus
May we know just what it means
(Two Hearts, one goal)
May our God in heaven guide us
May His Spirit take control
(Two hearts, one aim)
May our selfishness be done and only love remain
When two hearts become one

This is a special time
Because of the love that we share
You're becoming mine
We are showing how much we care
For the rest of our lives
You mean so much to me
We'll be husband and wife
I need you deeply

We dedicate vowing never to depart
A special day has come
When two hearts become one

Repeat Chorus

I thank my God above
And I'm ready to say I do
He has sent me your love (sent me your love)
I'm so grateful for you
From this very hour (from this very hour)
I'm yours and you are mine
Truly, truly God has been kind

We dedicate vowing never to depart
A special day has come
When two hearts become one

Repeat Chorus

Two hearts become one

Am I Worthy

Words and Music: Andrew McNeil 1996 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)

Lyrics:

I know there is a God who watches, who watches me
When I'm so alone
He promised a kingdom there to dwell forever, forever eternal
If I do His will I'll be in that number

Chorus:
Am I worthy of the blessings that (my) Christ has spread on me
In times of danger so dark I could not see
I can feel His love inside my soul
I want to know dear Lord am I worthy, worthy?

Trials and tribulations (trials and tribulations), pain, pain and strife
They are a part (they are a part) of this life
If I follow His, His footsteps they will guide to that light
The way that is right

Spoken:
Thank you Lord for always being there for me.  Even though I did my own thing at times, didn't look for you first.  But you've always been there, stayed around and watched over me.  Dear Father, am I worthy?

If I do His will I'll be in that number

Repeat Chorus (with stepouts)

Keep me in your care
When I stumble I know that you'll be there
I just want to be in that number

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Chorus (with stepouts)

Am I worthy of the blessings that (my) Christ has spread on me
In times of danger so dark I could not see

Running Back

Words and Music: Andrew McNeil 1996 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Andrew McNeil

Lyrics:

Chorus:
After all things that I've done in my life
I'm running back to You
If knew what I know now I would have thought twice
Running back to You
Wisdom comes from experience, that's God's honest truth
Running back to You
Well I've made up my mind I'm not leaving this time
Running back to You

I keep on running, yes I keep on running
Running back to You
Running, running back to You

Life is filled with swift transition
As it tossed my soul to and fro
Satan had me wrapped up in his system
And my zeal for the Lord ran cold
Disaster, turmoil, pain overwhelmed me
Like a blanket of darkness covering up my brightest day
Often I find myself weeping in such misery
But through God's love Christ showed me the way

I keep on running, running, running, running back to you

Repeat Chorus

My heart is moving in your direction
Nothing can stop me I'm on my way
Just wrap me in your arms of protection
Accept me here and now Lord I pray

I keep on running
Running back to You

Repeat Chorus

Scriptural Reference:

"When you are in distress and all these things have happened to you, then in later days you will return to the Lord your God and obey him."  Deuteronomy 4:30

Lyrics:

Chorus:
People won't you listen
When I say this I'm simply not dissin
Education, know that you need it
You need it, believe it, conceive it

I know 'cause I've been there
So let me share these few words with you
And let it be understood
Keep your mind fixed in '96
Education is the key
Stay behind me Satan not in front of me
Times are hard for the brother man
Start now prepare for you a better man
Keep your head in those books
You just don't know what it took
The blood stains remain from the innocent
Can you see why I recommend it?

Bridge:
(Come on believe, come on believe, come on believe, come on beleive)
(Come on believe, come on believe, come on believe, come on believe)

Repeat Chorus

Deep South, Underground Railroad
The Holocaust you know, in Nazi Germany
Bloody path to opportunity
Here is a window open it up so you can see now
Don't let their work be in vain
The pain, the shame, some went insane
When they took of their own seed
Crushed against a stone
Ooh dirty wrong, oh so dirty wrong
Sold for a penny and a dime and a nickel
Thought we were simple I beg to differ
And now we've got to strive for the right
Stand up for the right, stand up for the right

Repeat Bridge

Repeat Chorus

Won't you listen...
Repeat Bridge (with stepouts)

Repeat Chorus (with stepouts)

Repeat Chorus and Bridge (together)

Right Way

This song also appeared on Acappella Gospel Longplay by The Acappella Company.
Lead: Andrew McNeil
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

It has to be the right way

Chorus 1:
When you say it, say it
Know you gotta mean it
Gotta be the only way
Only way the right way
Jesus is the Answer for the world today
If we only obey the scriptures, brothers and sisters
Gotta mean what you say when you say that you mean it

Gotta be the only way
Only way the right way
It has to be the right way

Sitting back I reminisce about the time
I was a part-time Christian things were so different then
In my life had a good wife stood by my side trough all of my struggles
Jesus stepped right in and He took control He gave me a plan that
I was to understand that He was
It has to be the right way

Repeat Chorus 1

It has to be the right way

Gotta mean it when you say it
Because my Lord Jesus Christ
Yes you need him, don't delay him
Do not play with Him
Because Jesus will save you if you let Him
Good things come to those who wait (wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait)
And with God we know that we can make it

It has to be the right way

Chorus 2:
I can make and you can make it
And if we pull together everyone can make it
I can make and you can make it
Cuz I love and I like it, and I love it - just a Christian

Repeat Chorus (x6 with stepouts)

"Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life' . . ." John 14:6
