Lyrics:

oh-oh, oh oh, oh-oh, oh oh
oh-oh, oh oh, Anything 4 U...
oh-oh, oh oh, oh-oh, oh oh
oh-oh, oh oh, Anything 4 U...

Intro:
Take my life, here I am
Lord Your wish is my command
Oh, I will be Your man
I must do all that I can

Chorus:
Love is who You are
Love will always keep me trying, Lord
Knowing who You are
I'll share You with a lost and dying world

You're in control, I see my place
Knowing I'm only saved by grace
I don't deserve (I don't deserve) all that You do (you do)
I will do anything 4 U!

Repeat Intro

Repeat Chorus

I don't know why You gave Your Son,
But in my heart You're number one
Now it's my choice, all I can do
I will do anything 4 U (I will do anything)

Oh I will (Anything 4 U)
Be Your man (Anything 4 U)
I must do (Anything 4 U)
All that I can (I'll do anything)

(spoken)
Hey man, do your funky opera:

What I must do,
Service for You (What must I do?)
I was made to (I was made to love you)
Love and serve! (Got to love, got to serve, got to love, got to serve)
Anything 4 U!

Rap:
Anything 4 U is what I must do
I give all my heart and my soul and my mind to You
I don't deserve it, the Life that you gave for me
That broke the chains, released me, and set me free
From the sin and pain that this world can bring
And what it does is turn me away from what's right
And that's Jesus Christ, the One who paid the great sacrifice
So now it's my choice to do all I can do
What do I choose? Anything 4 U

Take my life here I am
Anything 4 U is my command
Take my life here I am
Anything 4 U is my command
Take my life here I am
Anything 4 U

Anything 4 U!

Scriptural Reference:

"`Even if Balak gave me his palace filled with silver and gold, I could not do anything of my own accord, good or bad, to go beyond the command of the LORD--and I must say only what the LORD says'?"  Numbers 24:13

I Still Don't Understand It

Words and music: Keith Lancaster and Bret Testerman 1992 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead: John K. Green

Lyrics:

You became a man
As part of a loving and perfect plan, you died
The earth turned to darkness, creation cried; You lived,
You arose from the grave, and the love You give to a man like me
Is so hard to comprehend

Chorus:
And I still don't understand it,
All the things that You've been through
And I still don't understand it,
All the things that You do
And I still don't understand it,
How You've taken me above.
And I still don't understand the things about Your love

With a broken heart (a broken heart),
You came here to give me a brand new start, You loved (You loved me),
Forsaken by all, You still remain a friend (You are my friend)
The example You gave and the life You lived leaves a man like me
No room to ever pretend (I can't pretend...)

Repeat Chorus

Your love, yeah,
Your love,
Your sweet love
Your love

Yes You came into this life,
Showed us how we were to live
To tell the world about Your precious Love
And You gave up Your life, saved the hopeless from their sins
To take us to Your home above

Repeat Chorus

Oh, Your love
Your love
All about, all about the things,
All about Your love!

Scriptural Reference:

"My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge."  Colossians 2:2-3

Tell Me The Story of Jesus

Words and music: Keith Lancaster 1992 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Max Plaster with stepouts by John K. Green

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Tell me the story of Jesus!
Tell me the story of Jesus!
Tell me the story of Jesus!
Tell me the story of Jesus!

Tell me the story of the Living Word
Who was in the beginning and created the world
Tell me the story of the God who came to earth, earth
Tell me the story of the God of love
Who was filled with compassion, leaving Heaven above
Tell me the story of my Lord's incarnate birth, birth

Repeat Chorus

Tell me the story of the Chosen One
Who was tempted by Satan, but was never overcome
Living a life within the Father's will and way, way
Tell of the love of the obedient Son
Whose commitment and loyalty was second-to-none
Dying a death declaring more than words can say
Oh won't you,

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
Tell me the reason that He cried.
Tell me the reason that He died.
How, overcoming death, my Lord, He is alive

Tell me the story of the Living Word
Who was in the beginning and created the world
Tell me the story of the God who came to earth!
Tell me the story of the God of love
Who was filled with compassion, leaving Heaven above
Tell me the story of my Lord's incarnate birth, birth

Repeat Chorus (with stepouts and fade)

Nothing In The World

Words: Keith Lancaster 1992 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Music: Mark Heimermann 1992 Funnatic Publishing (ASCAP)
This song also appeared in Spanish as "Nada Encontre" on Caminando en la Luz by AVB and in both English and Spanish on The Road by AVB.
Lead: Brian Randolph
Prayer outro: Wes McKinzie

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Nothing in the world will outlast or surpass my calling
Nothing in the world, on the earth, can be worth me falling from
Everything I am, that He wills, He instills within me
No, there is nothing in the world

I've become through Him what I know every person wants to be:
Loved and free
Free to see my life really count and do more than just get by
I've learned to fly
Through His heavenly way

Repeat Chorus

I've learned from Him why the world turns
And how my life should be my destiny
Though it's not all bright, when I'm faced with the dark and cloudy skies
Comes a big surprise
When He's leading the way

Repeat Chorus

You cured my loneliness; I know You
You brought me happiness, loving You
You really turned my life around
Everything I've found in You

Loving you...
No, there is nothing in the world

(Spoken with chorus in background):
Lord, there is nothing in the world that compares with You
Nothing in the world that can change a life the way You have mine
I owe my all to You, I give my all to You
And nothing can seperate me from the love that You give

Repeat Chorus

Scriptural Reference:

"Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf."  Proverbs 11:28

My soul is on fire
With a flame burnin' bright till the day that I die

You're my sanctifier
And I'm holy for You everything that I do

No Love Like Your Love

Words: Cheryl Rogers and Jack Turner 1992 Anthony K. Music and Leverage Music (ASCAP)
Music: Cheryl Rogers 1992 Anthony K. Music and Leverage Music (ASCAP)
Lead: John K. Green

Lyrics:

Ain't got no love!
Ain't got no love!

Chorus:
I ain't got no love like Your love
I ain't got no love like Your love
You're everything I'll ever need
Always the light inside of me
No one could ever give me more
I've got a heart so hungry for Your love
I ain't got no love like Your love
Ain't got no love!

I was livin' in such loneliness
Wishin' someone else would take the blame
Findin' everything but happiness
But win or lose it all just felt the same

Until You, I had nothing to hold on to
Until You, love just caught me by surprise
Because of You, life is more than just a circumstance
That comes and goes without a reason why

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
Though I wasn't easily persuaded (now I)
Now I can't get enough (while you)
While You patiently waited (your love)
To give me unconditional love

(Improv)

Until You, I had nothing to hold on to
Until You, love just caught me by surprise
Because of You, life is more than just a circumstance
That comes and goes without a reason why

Repeat Chorus (with stepouts)

(Improv)

Ain't got no love!

"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."  John 15:3

Jesus died for all people
Raised from the dead, life everlasting

Until that time He will meet all our needs
He blesses us daily

Repeat Chorus

Through Jesus, His Son
All You have to do is believe it
(All this love that God has provided)

When you go to the Lord, your dreams He'll fulfill
Like the Children of Israel
