Lead: Keith Lancaster
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

You live on the highest mountains
You swim in the deepest sea
You dwell in the grandest canyon (canyon, canyon)
Yet You make Your home inside of me
Yes You make Your home inside of me

You call to the leaves in springtime
And you speak to the kings of men
You breathe life, life into a baby
Yet You make Your home inside of me
Yes You make Your home inside of me

Chorus 1:
Home inside of me
Home inside of me
Of all the places You could be
You choose to make Your home (home inside of me)
Inside of me

You walk through the starry heavens
You run to the soul that seeks
You climb the hill of sorrow
Yet You make Your home inside of me
Yes You make Your home inside of me

Repeat Chorus 1

Chorus 2:
Home inside of me (inside of me)
Home inside of me
Of all the places You could be (places you could be)
You choose to make Your home (home inside of me)
Inside of me

Repeat Chorus 2

"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

Lead: Rodney Britt and Keith Lancaster
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

Oh father, sister, mother, brother, shout for joy
We're going on a journey to Jerusalem
So many, many sinners seek the rest few will find (find)
Are you going to be one of them?

Chorus 1:
Somebody say hallelujah
Somebody say amen
There's joy in the journey to Jerusalem
(One) One heart, (one) one mind
We seek the truth and find, find it in Jerusalem
(One) One faith, (one) one God
Blessed are the feet that walk the road to new Jerusalem

Oh Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary I know you're tired
But we've got so far to go
Ask Jesus to come and help, mother Mary
You come and ease your load

Chorus 2:
Somebody say hallelujah (hallelujah)
Somebody say amen (amen)
There's joy in the journey to Jerusalem
Somebody say hallelujah (hallelujah)
Somebody say amen (amen)
The road is there for all of God's children
(One) One heart, (one) one mind
We seek the truth and find, find it in Jerusalem
(One) One faith, (one) one God
Blessed are the feet that walk the road to new Jerusalem

The road to the Lord is a straight and narrow street
His love is free, it's heaven's gift for you and me
The road's for all, so it is they who will reap
So put one foot in front of the other
We've all got to help one another
If we're going to make Jerusalem brother
We've got to move it along

(One) One heart (one heart), (one) one mind (one mind)
We seek the truth and find, find it in Jerusalem
(One faith) One faith, (one) one God (oh yeah)
Blessed are the feet that walk, find it in Jerusalem
(One) One body, (one) one blood
Peace like a river flow, find it in Jerusalem (oh one)
(One) One heart, (one) one mind
We seek the truth and find (yes one faith), find it in Jerusalem (and just one God)
(One) One faith, (one) one God (oh yeah)
Blessed are the feet that walk (one faith), the route to new Jerusalem (only one God)
(One) One body (we're going to find it in Jerusalem), (one) one blood (yeah)
Peace like a river flow, find it in Jerusalem (one)
(One, one, find it in Jerusalem) (Only one God)
(We're going to find it in Jerusalem) (One) One heart, (one) one mind
(Yes one faith and just one God) (Find it in Jerusalem)
(One) One heart, (one) one mind
(Find it in Jerusalem)

Love

Words and Music: James Tenneboe and Matthew Ward © Megins College Music Fund / Midi House Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Keith Lancaster
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

I walked in her room and saw her there
She knelt so quietly I knew she was in prayer
There was a presence in the room I felt before
But I was frightened so I turned to close the door

Chorus 1:
Love was calling out my name
Love was calling out my name

Looking back on that day it's plain to me
My mother's heart was crying out for my release
It took years for me to be finally free
Her prayers were answered though she never lived to see

Repeat Chorus 1

Chorus 2:
Love has the power to make the weakest man tower
To make the strongest man cower
God has no end to His power
Love is the fire whose flames reach higher and higher
Love burns with endless desire
To see us whole

I understand my mother's heart for me
Wanting Jesus to make me all that I can be
Now the situation's changed I'm on my knees
Praying for my baby's eyes to someday see that...

Chorus 3:
Love is calling out her name
Love is calling out her name

Repeat Chorus 2

To make the weakest man tower
To make the strongest man cower
God has no end to His power
Whose flames reach higher and higher
Love burns with endless desire
To see us whole

Scriptural Reference:

"'Because he loves me,' says the Lord, 'I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him;  I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.'"  Psalm 91:14-15

Lead: Keith Lancaster
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

Lord I'm tired and I'm upset, I've done things we both regret
Now I need a place to hide away
Like a child who skins his knee, how You gently comfort me
There's no bandage like the things You say

Chorus 1:
And I know that You are God, God
How can it be, that You're a father to the likes of me
And I know that you are Lord, Lord
So take this day, let me run to You and hide away

I can't go this extra mile 'til I sit with you awhile
Pour out all my heart this way
Though the day may run too swift, I can make it only if
For a moment I could hide away

Repeat Chorus 1

Chorus 2:
And I know that You are God, God
How can it be, that You're a father to the likes of me (father to me)
And I know that you are Lord, Lord
So take this day, let me run to You and hide away

Let me run to You and hide away

Words and Music: Sylvia Rose © Srose Publishing Co.

Lyrics:

Iím a-gonna trade my earthly home (trade my earthly home) for a better one, bright and fair (bright and fair)
Christ left to prepare a mansion for His children in the air (in the air)
Iíll join Him in that land where tears nor sorrows can be found
And Iíll receive my mansion (mansion, robe), robe, and crown

Chorus:
Mansion, robe, and a crown (mansion, robe, and crown) (Lord I want a brand new mansion, robe, and a crown in glory)

And I'll receive my mansion (my mansion) (mansion, robe), robe, and crown

The weather there is always fair (weather's always fair), there is sunshine day and night
No cold nor rain will fall there (cold nor rain will fall there), for the sun shines ever bright (sun shines ever bright)

Why

Words and Music: Michael Card © Mole End Music / Birdwing Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Keith Lancaster
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

Why did it have to be a friend who chose to betray the Lord
Why did he use a kiss to show them, that's not what a kiss is for
Only a friend can betray a friend, a stranger has nothing to gain
And only a friend comes close enough to ever cause so much pain

And why did there have to be a thorny crown pressed upon His head
When it should have been a royal one made of jewels and gold instead
It had to be a crown of thorns, because in this life that we live
All who would seek to love, a thorn is all that this world has to give

And why did it have to be a heavy cross He was made to bear
And why did they nail His feet and hands
His love would have held Him there

It was a cross, for upon a cross a thief was supposed to pay
And Jesus had come into the world to steal every heart away
Yes Jesus had come into the world to steal every heart away

Jesus

Scriptural Reference:

"While he was still speaking a crowd came up, and the man who was called Judas, one of the Twelve, was leading them. He approached Jesus to kiss him, but Jesus asked him, 'Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?'"  Luke 22:47-48

My Father's Eyes

Words and Music: Eric Clapton © Unichappell Music Inc c/o Warner Chappell (BMI)
Lead: Rodney Britt
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

Sailing down behind the sun
Waiting for my prince to come
Praying for the healing rain
To restore my soul again
Just a poor man on the run
How did I get here?
What have I done?
When will all my hopes arise?
How will I know him?
When I look in my father's eyes

Chorus 1:
(Look into my father's eyes) My father's eyes (yeah)
When I look in my father's eyes
(Look into my father's eyes) My father's eyes (yeah)

Then the light begins to shine (shine)
I hear those ancient lullabies
And as I watched this seedling grow
Feel my heart start to overflow
Where do I find the words to say?
How do I teach him?
What do we play?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That's when I need them
That's when I need my father's eyes

Chorus 2:
(Look into my father's eyes) My father's eyes (yeah) (that's when I need them)
(That's when I need my father's eyes) I look into my father's eyes
(Look into my father's eyes) My father's eyes (yeah)

When the jagged edge appears
Through the distant clouds of tears
I'm like a bridge that was washed away
My foundations were made of clay
And as my soul slides down to die
How could I lose him?
What did I try?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That He was here with me
I looked into my Father's eyes

Repeat Chorus 2

I look into my Father's eyes

Repeat Chorus 1

I look into my Father's eyes

Repeat Chorus 2

Scriptural Reference:

"Look on me and answer, O Lord my God.  Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;"  Psalm 13:3

Lead: Keith Lancaster
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

Tears are falling (falling), hearts are breaking (breaking)
How we need to hear from God (hear from God)
You've been promised (promised), we've been waiting (waiting)
Welcome Holy Child
Welcome Holy Child (Holy Child)

Hope that you don't mind our manger
How I wish we would have known
But Long-awaited Holy Stranger
Make yourself at home
Please make yourself at home

Bring your peace into our violence
Bid our hungry souls be filled
Word now breaking Heaven's silence
Welcome to our world
Welcome to our world

Fragile finger sent to heal us
Tender brow prepared for thorn
Tiny heart whose blood will save us
Unto us is born
Unto us is born

So wrap our injured flesh around you
Breathe our air and walk our sod
Rob our sin and make us holy
Perfect Son of God
Perfect Son of God
Welcome to our world

"Now when Jesus returned, a crowd welcomed him, for they were all expecting him."  Luke 8:40

Turn Up the Radio

Words and Music: Geoffrey Thurman © 1994 Meadowgreen Music Co. c/o Birdwing Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Keith Lancaster
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

I've been kind of down today
Kind of like I can't quite make it
The pressure of a fast track world
Is hard to handle now and then
I haven't got a lot to say
And I resolve that I won't take it anymore
I know that something good is moving in me
That's when I feel the music
Soothe the savage beast
I hear the love
I find release

Chorus:
Turn up the radio
And sing a song of sympathy
Turn up the radio
Let freedom ring in harmony
I hear the healing go
To the secret place only God could know
Turn up the radio
Turn up the radio

Don't you know I make mistakes
And I can surely feel forsaken
The pressure of a fast paced race
Hurts my already broken heart
When the road is headed down and out
I desire love's forgiveness
His Spirit calls my name again and again
That's when I feel His music
Soothe the savage beast
I hear my Lord
I find His peace

Repeat Chorus

Let a message of hope sink in
Feel a fire of life begin
Break out the chains
Sing a sweet refrain

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Turn up, Turn up the radio (Turn up the radio)
Turn up, Turn up the radio (Turn up the radio)
Turn up, Turn up the radio (Turn up the radio)
Turn up the radio
Turn up the radio

Scriptural Reference:

"There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope.  There she will sing as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt."  Hosea 2:15
