Paint Me a Picture

Words: Matt Lusk © 1999 Mackrover Songs
Music: Matt Lusk and Jason Overstreet © 1999 Mackrover Songs
Vocal Percussion: Luke Coles, Nick Rucker, and Jason Overstreet
Lead:

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Come on and paint me a picture of Jesus
Come on and paint me a picture of the Lord
Come on and paint me a picture of Jesus
Come on and paint me a picture of love

Well you can see it when your out on the sidewalk
And on the walls of the street every day (every day)
Some use the backs of their cars for their God talk
But put on canvas, I wonder what itíd portray

Repeat Chorus

Would the images brought before eyes tell of glory
Of a strength dressed in weakness in a love that was slain (that was slain)
Could the brush really tell the whole story
Of our Savior who died for His claim

Your love in return, could you say that youíve shown it
Could you honestly tell me (could you honestly tell me) this was someone you knew?
But in the light (light) of salvation have you shown it
If it came down to friendship, tell me could he paint you?

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
Some of our pictures will differ and itís well that they do
For each one is a piece and a reflection of truth
Some may think theyíve beheld Him but theyíll miss on the art
But if you want the Masterpiece you must give Him your heart

Repeat Chorus

A picture of love, a picture of love, a picture of love

Scriptural Reference:

"When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus."  Matthew 17:8

2000 Years Ago

Words: Matt Lusk © 1999 Mackrover Songs
Music: Matt Lusk and Jason Overstreet © 1999 Mackrover Songs
Lead:

Lyrics:

Three crosses stood on a hill
An unmistakable message of intent to kill
To those who were watching, to those who could see
The Christ was to die there on Calvary

He had to bear all the torture and unearthly pain
They ridiculed and mocked Him but He loved them just the same
When it was all over they realized what theyíd done
They had just killed Godís only son

Chorus:
Two thousand years ago they put His cross in the ground
Two thousand years ago His blood flowed down
And though my foolish heart finds it hard to believe
Two thousand years ago, He was thinking of me

He knew it would happen though He told them not when
God with us would perish to save us from sin (sin)
The feeling was heavy, the crowd's voice was raised
When His life ended our souls were saved

Repeat Chorus

And now when I look at that time
I can scarcely imagine the degree of the crime
Iíd like to think myself a disciple crying out loud
But I know from my own life, Iíd be in the crowd

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Scriptural Reference:

"And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, heard his cry and saw how he died, he said, 'Surely this man was the Son of God!'"  Mark 15:39

Lyrics:

Where can I go from your spirit?
Where shall I flee from Your presence?

Chorus:
If I go up to the Heavens, if I make my bed in the depths
If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle across from the sea
You are there (You are there, You are there, You are there, You are there)

Where can I go from Your spirit?
Where shall I flee from Your presence?

Repeat Chorus

You are there (You are there, You are there), You are there (You are there, You are there)
Even there Your hand will guide me, You are there
You are there (You are there, You are there), You are there (You are there, You are there)
Even there Your right hand will hold me, You are there

Repeat Chorus

You are there (You are there, You are there), You are there (You are there, You are there)
Even there Your hand will guide me, You are there
You are there (You are there, You are there), You are there (You are there, You are there)
Even there Your right hand will hold me, You are there

Where can I go?
You are there

Scriptural Reference:

"Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast." Psalm 139:7-10

Quiet, quiet, He is speaking
Quiet, quiet, can you hear Him calling?
Quiet, quiet, His voice so softly

Hear Him, hear Him, He is waiting, praying
Hear Him, hear Him saying come back home

Donít you know He will never give up on you
Even if you give up on Him (He won't give up)
Heíll forever be there with His tender loving care
He will always take you back in

He is pleading (He, He is pleading), follow, follow
He is pleading (He, He is pleading), turn away, turn away
He is pleading (He, He is pleading) saying ďI am The Way and The Truth and The Life
You need look no further itís I that you seek"

Donít you know (don't you know), Don't you know (don't you know)

Lyrics:

Well, you can see Him walking down the dusty street
Heís the guy that all the people want to meet
And you can see His sandals walking side to side
Walking on with His disciples by His side

You look in His eyes and you can see thereís something there
A fire that burns inside extinguishing the stare
He is the Son of God Heís on the righteous path
Crushing sin within His peaceful aftermath

Chorus:
They call Him the Son of God (the Son of God) and evil takes flight
Jesus Christ can do no wrong, only right
The Prince of Peace (the Prince of Peace) with death Heís won the fight
Lamb of God, He is the Way the Truth the Life

Thereís somethiní Ďbout Him that His friends have known
The way that He loves and cares it really sets a tone
Heís always there if you will turn your heart to Him
Just believe in His name and He will set you free from sin

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Let my heart glorify (glorify) Your name (glorify, glorify), Your name

So what does He think about me? Is He pleased with my soul?
Am I giving my all in all to Him pressing on towards the goal?

Oh Iím worth everything (everything) in my Fatherís eyes (Father's eyes)
I matter, itís Godís eyes that count
I matter, itís Godís eyes that count (it's God's eyes)
Itís Godís eyes that count, what He sees and His opinion of me
Thatís what matters, itís Godís eyes that count
So let my words testify (testify), let my actions magnify (magnify)
And let my heart glorify (glorify) Your name (glorify, glorify Your name)

In the Cool

Words and music: Bob Barber and Jason Overstreet © 1999 Mackrover Songs
Lead:

Lyrics:

In the cool of evening, my Lord comes down and walks with me, with me
In the darkest of valleys, Heís there to talk, to talk to me

On the mountains, in the valleys, in the darkest of the night
In my sorrows, in my trials, He whispers itís all right

In the cool of evening, in the garden of my heart

Oh Christian, why be discouraged when God is on His throne
Oh sinner, why donít you hasten, canít you hear Him calling you home?

In the cool of evening, He will walk and talk to you, to you

Scriptural Reference:

"Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden."  Genesis 3:8

What If

Words: Matt Lusk © 1999 Mackrover Songs
Music: Matt Lusk and Jason Overstreet © 1999 Mackrover Songs
Vocal Percussion: Luke Coles, Nick Rucker, and Jason Overstreet
Lead:

Lyrics:

Chorus 1:
Well He came and died, Christ was glorified
All was prophesied, Heaven was open wide
He said by Him we could be redeemed
Now our hope is in Him to save us from all our sin

Imagine Christ had never come where would our hope be today
What if we were waiting for His birth would we have a faith to state
Instead we wait for His return and pray for it in the coming day
Had it come before could we not ignore that itís not too far away

What if we had (we had) followed someone else (followed) and stood knocking (someone) on their door (we had followed someone)
Or suppose we chose (for we) a different path (chose a) would we search (different) for something more (something)
Think if we had (we had) never known (never) of Him (known Him) how could our lives be this full (be this full)
Or if the gift of eternal life was a story after all

Chorus 2:
For we can not be ourselves without Him
No, and no one can make us whole the way the Father can (the way the Father can)
Now some might try some different ways to replace the Lord in their lives today
Iím so glad Heís shown the way to my heart so I can say

We were all born into this world we were oh so incomplete
Our hearts were made with one part gone and itís that part that we need (that we need)
The Lord has given another gift and He calls it our free will
And when we choose to believe in Him itís the empty part He fills

Repeat Chorus 2

Repeat Chorus 1

What if Christ had never come where would our hope be today?

Scriptural Reference:

"We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ."  2 Thessalonians 1:12
