Lyrics:

Chorus 1:
Anywere I go and whatever I may do
Jesus, you're my Lord. I believe in you
And I know you'll answer every time that I pray
Jesus, you're my Lord. I believe in you, I believe in you

I believe (I believe)
I believe (I believe)
I believe (I believe)
I believe

I believe that you walked on the water
That you made the blind to see
I believe that you came and died on the cross
To set me free
It makes me so happy just to know that you love me
I want you to know that in you I believe

Chorus 2:
Anywere I go and whatever I may do (I believe in you)
Jesus, you're my Lord. I believe in you (Jesus you're my Savior)
And I know you'll answer every time that I pray (every time that I pray)
Jesus, you're my Lord. I believe in you, I believe in you (I believe in you)

I believe (I believe)
I believe (I believe) (I believe in you)
I believe (I believe)
I believe

I believe in the angel who sat on the stone
That was rolled away (I believe)
I believe that the Son of God rose again
On that glorious day (I believe)
It makes me so happy (makes me so happy) just to know that you are alive (I will believe til I die)
I will believe in you until the day that I die (until I see you)

Repeat Chorus 2

Bridge:
I believe that he's up in heaven (I believe, I believe)
Sitting at God's right hand (I believe, I believe)
I believe that we've got to be ready (I believe, I believe)
'Cause he's coming again

Repeat Chorus 1

Everything's Gonna Be All Right

Words and music: Gary Moyers and Duane Adams 1993 Clifty Music (BMI)/Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
This song also appeared on Hear It In Our Voice by The Acappella Company.
Lead: Kaci Bolls

Lyrics:

All right now, all right now, all right now, all right now

I'm feeling fine today. What else can I say?
I know all along through all the wrong
He's making me strong
When tears are not enough, when life seems too tough
Through the daily grind, if you're one step behind
Just give it some time

'Cause there is one who loves me
Shown me good living
Constantly serving, Constantly giving

Everything is gonna be all right
Everything is gonna be all right
Murphy said if it could go wrong it would
I kind of doubt that he was looking for the good
'Cause God said, everything is gonna be all right

You've got your head held high (head held high)
But you're not sure why
Don't try to pretend, you'll only win
If he's living within
Without the light of day you can't see the way
So why all the pain? You worry in vain
His loss is your gain

'Cause there is one who loves me
Shown me good living
Constantly serving, constantly giving

Chorus:
Everything is gonna be all right (yes it is)
Everything is gonna be all right
Just keep in mind that He is working on your heart
Don't tell me you forgot who's been there
From the start
'Cause God said everything is gonna be all right

Bridge:
He said it's gonna be okay
Just listen close to what He will say
He said it's gonna be okay
He'll lift you up if you kneel down to pray

Repeat Chorus

(Everything is gonna be all right)
Everything is gonna be all right (all right now, all right now, all right now, all right now)
Everything is gonna be all right

Scriptural Reference:

"What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ."  Philippians 3:8

Give Me You

Words and music: Duane Adams and Jason Ratliff 1994 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Mary Adams

Lyrics:

I want you to know, really know
How to live for you Lord
The truth in your book is enough (it's enough, it's enough)
But what do we find
When our heart is confined
To a rule that our mind's made up?

Can I see, truly see
In this dark-filled world
Your love that shines light everyday?
When our hearts become blind
Because we close our eyes to your way

Chorus:
Give me you (no other comforts)
No other comforts can fill me like you do
I'm tired of emotion (I'm tired) from shallow devotion
All I'm asking now is give me you (all I want is you)

Sometimes, many times
It's a lonely road
To raise a Godly family on my own
But I'm praying in time
That my husband will find
The love that you, Lord, have shown

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
For the storms, they come with no warning
(And you are) Hiding your face from me
In the midst of my fall
Your great love shines through it all

Repeat Chorus (with stepouts)

All I really need (all I really need) is you (give me you)

Scriptural Reference:

"Shout for joy, O heavens; rejoice, O earth; burst into song, O mountains! For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones."  Isaiah 49:13

Center

Lead: Dawn Livingston

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Center your faith, center your hope
Center your heart, center your love
Center your mind, center your dreams
Center your life, center your love

Shepherds gathered 'round a child
Sent to save a world defiled
Leaving flocks to see the one
The Lamb of God
The Father's only Son
Center your love

Soldiers gathered 'round a cross
Sinners' gain is heaven's loss
Between two guilty thieves was shown
The awesome love that man had never known
Center your love

Repeat Chorus (with double echo)

Angels gathered 'round the throne (round the throne)
All God's children gathered home (gathered home)
The world revolves around the sun (heav'n revolves)
Heaven revolves around the Son of God (center your love)
Center your love
Center your love (center your love)

Repeat Chorus (with echo)

Repeat Chorus (with echo and double echo)

Scriptural Reference:

I Could Tell

Words and music: Gary Miller  1994 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Delisa McKinzie

Lyrics:

Chorus:
You've been readin' in the Word
And you've been talkin' to the Lord
I could tell it right away, you've been in it night and day
I could tell by what you do and what you say

Chorus 2:
You've been readin' in the Word (I could tell, tell)
And you've been talkin' to the Lord (I could tell, tell)
I could tell it right away, you've been in it night and day (I could tell, tell)
I could tell by what you do and what you say (I could tell)

Well if you're bearin' fruit
It shows that you're on the vine
And lovin' one another proves that
You're really mine
The things you say and do
Reflect the state of your heart
So love the Lord with all of your heart

Repeat Chorus 2

All the world is lookin'
For some peace in their mind (oh we're lookin')
They seek it high and low
And yet just trouble they find (oh we're seekin')
But you and I, we know
The message they need to hear (oh we can tell it)
If we'll just tell them Jesus is near (tell 'em He's right hear)

Repeat Chorus 2

(interlude)

Repeat Chorus 2

Bridge:
I can see by your smile
And your spiritual style
I'm so happy to know
That you're growin'
You've got hope in your eyes
And you're faithful and wise
You've got love in your heart
And it's showin'
I can see you growin'

You've been readin' in the Word
And you've been talkin' to the Lord
You've been readin' in the Word
And you've been talkin' to the Lord

Repeat Chorus 1 (x2)

"Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart."  Proverbs 3:3

Side of the Road

Words and music: Danny Burch, Hank Fenn, and Trey Daniels 1991 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Kaci Bolls

Lyrics:

Chorus:
The side of the road you take
Determines the person that you make
We should do all that we can
To do the will of God's plan
Which side of the road will you take?
What kind of person will you make?
Well it's time to take a stand
You can live the life He's planned
Which side of the road will you take?

There's two sides to each road we travel
Each side has an end
One side leads to eternal life
The other we are condemned
Have you ever stopped to wonder
Where you destination lies?
Will you choose the path that's narrow
Or will you choose the path that's wide?

Repeat Chorus

The road that's narrow is hard to find
And few will enter in
But Satan's road is easy to follow
Just lead a life of sin
God's provided an open door
And offers it to you (just for you)
So take a step of faith, my friend
And find the path that's true

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
When all your ways acknowledge him (keeping you from sin)
Then He will keep you from paths of sin (which side will you take)

Repeat Chorus

Which side of the road will you take?

Scriptural Reference:

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."  Matthew 7:13-14

Bridegroom

Words and music: Gary Moyers 1993 Clifty Music (BMI)
Lead: Jeanette Greenlee

Lyrics:

I am waiting by the front gate
Others wait here, too
I've been called to be a bridesmaid
And my lamp is burning true
I am chosen to await him
But the hour is growing late
The moon is climbing high now
And it's hard to stay awake
But. . .

Chorus:
The bridegroom's coming
Got to keep the lamps all trimmed
The bridegroom's coming
Waiting patiently for Him
The wedding feast is waiting
And they're ready to begin
And I pray He'll find me worthy to come in

(I wanna see Him, I wanna see Him)

I awoke at midnight
Someone said he was near
We rushed to get our lamps lit
But some cried out in fear
We need some of your oil now
Our lamps are growing dim
I'm afraid I cannot help them
I've just enough for him
'Cause

Repeat Chorus

(I wanna see Him, I wanna see Him)
(I wanna see my Lord)

Bridge:
We led the bridegroom to the wedding
He said hit's time to begin
He locked the doors and closed the world out
My friends came back, but they could not come in

Repeat Chorus (x2)

(I wanna see Him, I wanna see Him)

Scriptural Reference:

"The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom's voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete."  John 3:29

I Know the Love

Words and music: Duane Adams, Gary Moyers, and George Pendergrass 1994 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)/Clifty Music (BMI)
Lead: Kim Scott, Cathy Crafton, and Delisa McKinzie

Lyrics:

He loves me, I know He loves me (I know His love)
He loves me, I know He loves me (blessed love)

For the rain must fall
But that doesn't mean I let it pour over me
People look for bad
But that doesn't mean that's what I must choose to see
Too many times I've been blinded
By my feelings alone
But I know that I can always depend on the Lord
'Cause He's in control

Chorus:
For I know the love of my dear Father
I can go to Him when times get tough
In searching for strength there is no other
For I know His love and that's enough

So my wish for you
Is hoping you can see
What your life can be
For the love of God has made
All of the difference in life for me
There's so much more than the pain and strife
He wants to show you a better life
It's up to you, my friend
So give Him a chance (give Him one more chance, give Him a chance)

Repeat Chorus (with stepouts)

Bridge:
I'm a winner on patrol (and I'm for the Lord)
For a Savior who has come inside
And taken control
Still a sinner who has been sold (I've been sold)
To the love of one who will not let go

Repeat Chorus (with stepouts)

Repeat Chorus

For I know his love and that's enough
That's enough
I can go to Him (I can go to Him)
That's enough (I know His love)

Scriptural Reference:

"You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ."  Romans 8:9

Burden Bearer

Words and music: George Pendergrass and Jenny Remsburg 1994 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)/Clifty Music (BMI)
Dedication: This song is dedicated in the spirit of one whose life has been given to helping and bringing joy where there was sadness. Shirley Carrigan, may your burdens be light and your troubles few as He carries you in his care.
Lead: Jenny Remsburg

Lyrics:

There's a time in every life
When we've got to realize
That there are some things in this world
That we can't do
And there's a time in every heart
In every woman, man or child
When the pressures seem to get
The best of you
I know of one who handles problems
He's a burden bearing friend
And there is nothing in this world
He cannot do
So take those burdens that you are bearing
And release them to the Lord
I guarantee you
He will make you feel brand new

Chorus:
So take your burdens to the Lord (Take it to the Lord when you need a better friend)
He's a burden bearing friend (Burdens go away when the Lord is here to stay)
Take your burdens to the Lord (Take it to the Lord, there's no better friend than He)
On His love you can depend (Fully lean upon His everlasting arms)
Take your burdens to the Lord (Take it to the Lord and you'll never be afraid)
Don't you fear and please don't doubt (Doubts and fears today they can only cloud the way)
Take your burdens to the Lord (Take it to the Lord, won't you take it right away)
He will help you work them out (Today)

When your youthful days are fading
And your sight is growing dim
And the health you had before
You can't regain (health is almost gone)
When each day seems like forever
With the problems of old age
And it's hard to smile 'cause your body
Is filled with pain

My Jesus knows your every burden
And He knows what you can bear
So don't you feel that you
Are out there on your own
He can help you if you will let Him
He is waiting there for you
He'll be a friend who will never
Leave you all alone

Repeat Chorus

Scriptural Reference:

"Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens."  Psalm 68:19

God Loves Women

Words and music: Gary Moyers 1994 Clifty Music (BMI)
Lead: Kim Scott

Lyrics:

Do you ever wonder
'Bout the purpose for your life?
Should I be content to know
That I am someone's wife?
Sometimes it feels that I
Just might have been left out
But when I read the Word of God
I lose all of my doubt

I see that Lydia was a merchant
Who took good care of Paul
Priscilla was Italian
With a missionary call
Deborah was a prophet
And a judge of all the land
And Mary raised the Son of God
And now I understand
I know that

Chorus:
God loves women
We're part of the plan he made
Part of his theology
God loves women
The perfect companion
'Cause that's what we're meant to be
God loves women
How can you question?
Just take a look at history
God loves women
He'll never abandon
I know He'll make a path for me

God can do all things
That's one thing I know
But all those women lived
Several thousand years ago
It makes me wonder
If He'll use me just the same
But everything is possible
When done in Jesus' name

Remember Tabitha had passed away
Till peter said "arise"
And Rahab had a faith in God
And hid the Jewish spies
Esther saved the Israelites
And Phoebe served God well
And Sarah lived a century
Before the Lord prevailed

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
I know that God has blessed me
So much more than just a wife
Who else could take a seed
And give the miracle of life?

Repeat Chorus

God loves women (oh yes He does)
We're part of the plan he made
Part of his theology
God loves women (and so do we)
The perfect companion
'Cause that's what we're meant to be
God loves women (you better believe)
How can you question?
Just take a look at history
God loves women (well don't you know)
God loves women

Scriptural Reference:

"In a loud voice she exclaimed: 'Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear!'"  Luke 1:42
