Road Signs

Words and music:
Lead: Nathan George

Lyrics:

I don't need you standing by to tell me what I got to do
We don't need anymore road signs, cause the bible's as good as new
We need you just to jump in and get your dirty hands a'workin'
For God's the Man, He's got the plan
So Shut yo mouth and work

Chorus:
Don't need no road signs
'Cause the Bible's here to stay
Don't need no road signs
Just workin' everyday
Don't need no road signs
'Cause Jesus is the way
We gotta work to prove His plan is the only way to stay

Well if you need to see a sign just travel down the road
'Cause in the church we got a God and He's already foretold
The way to life and happiness you won't find down the road
'Cause God's the man, He wrote the plan
So Shut yo mouth and work

Repeat Chorus

(Interlude)
1...2...3...

Repeat Chorus

Scriptural Reference:

"'You know the way to the place where I am going.'  Thomas said to him, 'Lord, we don't know where you are going, so how can we know the way?'  Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'"  John 14:4-6

I Press On

Words and music: Madison Orsburn
Lead: Nathan George and Zac George

Lyrics:

Chorus:
I press on toward the goal
To win the prize for which God's called
Heavenward to Christ Jesus
I'm pressing on (pressing on)
I press on toward the goal
To win the prize for which God's called
Heavenward to Christ Jesus
I'm pressing on

Amazing grace how sweet the sound
I once was lost but now I'm found
Once was blind but now I see
I'm pressing on (pressing on)
When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
I'm pressing on

Repeat Chorus and Verse together

Scriptural Reference:

"I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."  Philippians 3:14

It's Not Me

Words and music:
Lead: Nathan George

Lyrics:

I lie awake at night, thinkin' about what I've done
I try to make it all right, but You're the only one
That can change me inside and cleanse my soul again
Without You I am lost forever
What a wretched man I am

Chorus:
It's not me when I say the things I say
It's not me when I do the things I do
It's not me when I push you away
It's not me, because Lord it's not You

My mind is split in two, I don't know who I am
I want to live in you, but my flesh gets out of hand
When I try to do my best the devil stumbles me
Sometimes I can't seem to figure out
Who I need to be

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
If you need (if you need) to be renewed (to be renewed)
Then look to God (look to God)
And He will save you (He will save you)
Put Him first (put Him first) in all you do (in all you do)
And He will never forsake you

Repeat Bridge

If you need to be renewed

Scriptural Reference:

"What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?  Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!" Romans 7:24-25a

A Reason to Live

Words and music:
Lead: Nathan George

Lyrics:

O Lord, you know that, I was lost until You came
Into my life and then you said, "Come and let Me heal your pain"
It was hard to describe the relief I felt that day
I didn't know just what to do, so I got on my knees to pray

Chorus:
And I said thank You for giving me a reason to live
I will see those golden gates someday, 'cause my sins You chose to forgive
Even when I was blind You were on my mind and it took some time to see
That You came to earth to give Your love to me (to me)

The days were hard
And the night were oh, so long
I wanted to get through with life
I felt I couldn't carry on
Then I felt Your presence
I felt You by my side
I knew I did not have to fear
'Cause in You I can abide

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Even when I was blind You were on my mind and it took some time to see
That You came to earth to give Your love to me (to me)

Scriptural Reference:

"For this is the reason the gospel was preached even to those who are now dead, so that they might be judged according to men in regard to the body, but live according to God in regard to the spirit."  1 Peter 4:6

Go Tell John

Words and Music: Greg Sublett 1991 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
This song also appeared on Hear It In Our Voice: Volume III by The Acappella Company, Prime Time by Keith Lancaster, and Longplay by Keith Lancaster.
Lead: Nathan George

Lyrics:

As he sat there in that prison cell, he knew just how it came about
And he knew his life was over and he was never comin' out
But there was just one thing he had to know, he had to make a final plea
And so he sent his friends to ask the Lord if he was who He claimed to be

Chorus:
"Go tell John (go tell John)
That the lame have learned to walk
That the poor can hear the word of God and the deaf can hear me talk
Go tell John (go tell John)
That the blind can finally see, oh and
Blessed is the man who doesn't fall away because of me"

Well He was born so he could tell the world that the Kingdom was at hand
And that the Christ would soon come after Him to complete the Father's plan
And there was nothing else he wanted more than to see this Kingdom grow
It was the only thing that mattered, it was all he had to know

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
"Go tell John (go tell John)
That the dead are raised again
Go tell John (go tell John)
That the lepers now are cleansed
Go tell John (go tell John)
That the path he chose was right
Go tell John (go tell John)
Go and tell him that I truly am the light"

Repeat Chorus

"Blessed is the man who doesn't fall away because of me"

Scriptural Reference:

"When John heard in prison what Christ was doing, he sent his disciples to ask Him, 'Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?' Jesus replied, 'Go back and report to John what you hear and see: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me.'" Matthew 11:2-6

Lead: Nathan George

Lyrics:

Lately I've been thinking as I look all around me
I see by the signs that we're soon going to be leaving
The bridegroom is coming to take us all away
It may be tomorrow, but I pray that it's today

Chorus:
And we will fly (fly) away in the twinkling of an eye
Leaving all our heartaches and telling them all goodbye
Yes we will fly (fly) away when he hears His Father say
"Jesus, go and get your bride, today's your wedding day"

Now when we see the bridegroom in the clouds in the sky
Will he be telling you hello or telling you goodbye?
Oh, be sure and be ready to meet Him face to face
We've got to fight the good fight, we've got to keep our faith

Repeat Chorus (x2)

"Let us rejoice and be glad and give him the glory. For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready." Revelation 19:7

Oh, but Lord be with us still

We still have faith and we believe
That You are with us still

Lord be with us still (Lord forgive us)

Tree Song

Words and music:
Lead: Nathan George

Lyrics:

(Talking prelude)

If I was a tree I'd be dead as I could be to the world

I couldn't teach, I couldn't preach, I couldn't even speak
In fact I could do nothin' at all

I'd be subjected to the wind and pounded by the rain
I'd be moved at their call

Simply goin through the motions without havin' no emotions
I'd be a stiff tree and that's all

Spoken Vocal:
Well it's good you see cause I'm not a tree
I'm as human as I could possibly be
I can worship the Lord whenever I want
I can do it at church or in my boxer shorts
I can go to the mall, praise Him in the hall
Do it where I want and that's all

Scriptural Reference:

"Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks."  John 4:23
