Amazing Grace

Lead: Terry Lewis and Danice Sweet

Lyrics:

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind, but now I see!

Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved!
Well how precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we first begun!

Worship With Your Life

Words and music: Danice Sweet
Lead: Danice Sweet

Lyrics:

Sing a song, say a prayer
Have we forgotten what weíre doing here
Does anybody really even care
Is this what worship is?
Quiet time on your knees
Begging to the father hear my plea
Forgive my sinful tendencies
Is this what worship is?

Chorus:
Worship with your life
Keep it shining bright
So they can see the love inside
Worship with your life

Go to church and do your best
But have we forgot about the rest
I think itís time for us to confess
Is this what worship is?
We take the bread and the vine
Does the Savior even cross your mind?
Are you merely putting in your time?
Is this what worship is?

Bridge:
Do we focus on appearances
Acting like weíre so devout
Or are we looking on the inside
Thatís what loves about
Thatís what loves about

Repeat Chorus (x3)

Scriptural Reference:

"God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."  John 4:24

Lyrics:

Chorus:
His tender mercies rest upon me
Though I'll never be worthy of it all (worthy of it all)
He has shown His grace and someday I'll see His face
And His tender mercies will upon me fall

Each day I'll strive a little harder (strivin' harder)
Wanting to be more like Him
Wanting to do more than barely make it
Certain that when my life ends

Repeat Chorus

Having tried and having fallen (I keep on fallin')
He picks me up without complaint
Knowing I won't reach perfection
íTil I see those pearly gates

Repeat Chorus

I know, I know I don't deserve what I've been given
So I need to share with you (share with you)

They will fall (fall, fall, fall), they will fall (fall, fall, fall)

My Prayer

Words and music: Chet and Danice Sweet
This song also appeared on Don't Wait 'Til Winter by Revival.
Lead: Donja Cary

Lyrics:

Sometimes I can't hear His voice, I'm just not listening

Was it so very long ago you came to live on earth?
When will I ever comprehend the value of the Savior's birth?

A man with rough, but gentle hands, a carpenter by trade
I want so much to understand the sacrifice the Father gave

And in the silence I can hear a voice that calls to me (in silence I can hear His voice, it comes in strong, it comes in clear)
Sometimes it comes in loud and clear, sometimes I'm just not listening (sometimes I can't hear His voice, I'm just listening)

The rains have come, the winds have blown, and stronger for the storm I stand
Amazing grace (amazing grace), I've come to know (I've come to know) while clinging tightly to your hand

Lord, help me hear that voice inside, the message coming (the message coming) through
Please take my heart and amplify the love I have (the love I have) for you

Please take my heart and amplify the love I have (the love I have) for you
Sometimes I can't hear His voice, I'm just not listening
Sometimes I can't hear His voice, I'm just not listening

Scriptural Reference:

"Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!"  Psalm 66:20

Hallelujah, hallelujah (repeat throughout except last lines)

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah (glory hellelujah)

Chorus:
Glory Hallelujah look what God is doing through you
Angels are singing when the saints are bringing
Praise and adoration from each and every nation
Glory hallelu look what God can do

Jordan, Israel and France, Russia and Afghanistan
Zimbabwe and Cameroon
Children in Romania, souls in Ethiopia
Longing to hear the news
How can they hear (how can they hear) unless their told?
We must share (we must share) the hope that we know
It's up to you (it's up to you) to tell them what God can do

Repeat Chorus

Satan trembles when he sees the weakest saint down on his knees
'Cause Heaven knows the power of prayer
Comfort when I feel afraid, a light when I have lost my way
Lifting burdens that I bear
You're always on my (you're always on my) heart and mind
I know you pray (I know you pray) for me and I
Hope you know (I hope you know) you've shown me what God can do (what my God can do)

People living in the streets, longing for some food to eat
Starving for somebody to care
When a child cries in the night, is someone there to show the light
And let them know God is there
How can they see (how can they see) unless their shown
Can they find (can they find) God's love all alone
It's up to you (it's up to you) to tell them what God can do (what my God can do)

Lead: Danice Sweet

Lyrics:

I've a request to make if I could dear Lord
It makes me ache to see the way we quarrel
We've got so much to do (tell the world)
We've got to tell the world about you (tell the world)
And if you could only see us through tomorrow

Chorus:
We've got brothers fighting brothers
And sisters who don't even talk (it's not the way)
And I know it's not the way you planned our walk together here
We've got to help each other or we're never going to make it there
I'm begging you please (begging you please), on my knees (on my knees)
Humbly

We're fighting over little things, it's doing nobody good
Tell me why can't we stop judging one another
It comes down to love (down to love)
And being more like you (it comes down to love)
So that we can all be one and love each other

Bridge:
Jesus wept over Jerusalem and I'm crying out today
I don't what else I can do but pray

Repeat Chorus

While we fight amongst ourselves the whole world goes by (keeps passing by)
And most of them don't know the name of Jesus (Jesus)
It's got to start with you
And it's got to start with me
I'm begging you please
Humbly

Years later I went off to school, I couldnít wait to leave
Missing home when I called her up, hereís what she said to me

Her body had just given out, she asked to see her son
As I stood there silently, stroked her hair and felt her leave
Thought I could here my momma plead

Hurry home, Iíve been waiting here for you
Hurry home, thereís so much weíve got to do
The light is on, the tableís set, don't be worried 'bout my death

If There Were No You

Lead: Danice Sweet

Lyrics:

If there were no you
If there were no you

Chorus:
If there were no you my songs would be in vain
If there were no you my skies would all be gray
No hope of life could be found and there would be no sight, no sound
There would be no love if there were no you

They question whether Jesus was Godís Son
They even asked Him long ago with all that He had done
Who gave you authority? My Father who has sent me
He gave His life and proved He was the one

Repeat Chorus

Now Iíve read where the stone was rolled away
The tomb was sealed and secured, then on the third day
He is risen as he said, Heís alive no longer dead
Since He lives we rejoice and say

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
For without you life would have no meaning
And without you Iíd have never known
Amazing grace was for a wretch like me
If there were no you, how could heaven be my home?

Repeat Chorus

I know that there would be no love if there were no you

Scriptural Reference:

"Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance."  John 20:1
"Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners--of whom I am the worst.  But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life.  Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever.  Amen."  1 Timothy 1:15-17

Lead: Craig Hayes

Lyrics:

I will call you friend

Chorus 1:
I call you friend (you can call me friend)
The time we spend together goes so fast
Until the end (til the very end)
In Heaven we know the time will last

God brings together two people of a kind
Through stormy weather (stormy weather) a knot is tied that binds
The hearts of friends who need a listening ear
A shoulder to share a fallen tear (a fallen tear)
I call you friend

Repeat Chorus 1

A friend is chosen, coincidence it seems
But hearts keep closer (hearts keep closer), the memories they bring
Though miles may separate us, weíre never far apart
We share a special feeling in our hearts (down in our hearts)
I call you friend

Repeat Chorus 1

When I feel helpless and no one can be found
His words remind me (He reminds me) Heíll never let me down
He picks me up when life just isnít fair (life is so unfair)
When hope is gone He still will hear my prayer (He hears my prayer)
He calls me friend

Repeat Chorus 1

I call you friend (you can call me friend)
Forever in my heart you will remain
Until the end (til the very end)
In Heaven I know we'll meet again
In Heaven I know weíll meet again

Lead: Danice Sweet

Lyrics:

Chorus 1:
Teach me, Lord (teach me Lord), to hear your voice (hear your voice)
And to listen when you call (when you call)
And as you take me stone (as you take me stone) by stone (stone by stone)
There will be no wall (there will be no wall) at all

This wall Iíve built stands firm and tall
Protects me from my feelings and my failures great and small
And even though sometimes I hide behind this wall
This fortress makes it hard to hear when my Father calls

Repeat Chorus 1

When friends you love are hard to find
The world seems to hit you, attacking from all sides
We start to build a wall with stones of fear and pride
The spirit longs to intercede, our cries from inside

Repeat Chorus 1

So Jesus take this wall from me
Remove each stone that I have placed so carefully
With gentle hands the Great I Am will set me free
Then this wall will crumble down and Iíll be released

Chorus 2:
So teach me, Lord (teach me Lord), to hear your voice (hear your voice) (I want to hear your voice)
And to listen (and to listen) when you call (when you call) (listen when you call)
And as you take me stone (as you take me stone) by stone (stone by stone) (every stone will fall)
There will be no wall (there will be no wall) at all

As you take me stone (as you take me stone) by stone (stone by stone)
There will be no wall (there will be no wall) at all

This song also appeared on Don't Wait 'Til Winter by Revival.
Lead: Danice Sweet

Lyrics:

He is the truth, life, and way

Chorus:
He was no run of the mill Messiah, walked the road to Calvary
No average Savior, Jehovah, and Lord is the bread of life for me
No run of the mill Messiah came back to life on the third day
As He promised and said, so He lived and He bled, showing He was the truth, life, and way

More that a prophet and more than just a preacher
He was a surgeon sculpting souls with His hands
More than a carpenter, more than just a teacher
More than an angel and more than a man

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
He is the truth, life, and way (more than a teacher, more than a carpenter) (no run of the mill, no run of the mill)
He is the truth, life, and way (more than a teacher, more than a carpenter) (more than a man, He was more than a man)
He is the truth, life, and way (more than a teacher) (no run of the mill)

Repeat Chorus

Follow His sandleprints and see where they lead us
Smell the sawdust of the carpenter's shop
See the one and only leper thanking Jesus
Of Galilee and born of divine thought

Repeat Chorus

Once you have seen Him, a glimpse of the Savior
You'll long to see Him each day
His words can help us change our behavior
Satan stay out of our way

Repeat Chorus

No run of the mill Messiah

After a three day stay, and prayin' night and day, Jehovah made the big fish spit

The sea was getting rougher and the sailors started sweating but the didn't want poor Jonah to get wet
Jonah kept insisting that the sea would stop its waving if they would throw him in with out a single net

"Then they cried to the Lord, 'O Lord, please do not let us die for taking this man's life. Do not hold us accountable for killing an innocent man, for you, O Lord, have done as you pleased.  Then they took Jonah and threw him overboard, and the raging sea grew calm.  At this the men greatly feared the Lord, and they offered a sacrifice to the Lord and made vows to him.  But the Lord provided a great fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was inside the fish three days and three nights.  From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the Lord his God."  Jonah 1:14-2:1
"And the Lord commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.  Then the word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time:  'Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you.  Jonah obeyed the word of the Lord and went to Nineveh.  Now Nineveh was a very important city-a visit required three days."  Jonah 2:10-3:3

Holy is the lamb

Satan's Been Riding Me Hard Blues

Words and music: Chet Sweet
This song also appeared on Whatcha Gonna Do About It by Revival.
Lead: Danice Sweet

Lyrics:

Woke up Sunday morning, I looked at the time
Wake up, Honey, itís almost twenty past nine
And weíre late (too late, too late) for church today
Iíve got those Satanís been riding me so hard blues

Got into the car, everything seemed fine
Looked at my speedometer I was doing ninety-nine
And itís so hard (too fast, too fast), see the lights in my rearview mirror
Now Satanís out to get you brother, so you better take care

Sitting along side the road, policeman says "hi"
Look and thereís my elders and my deacons driving by
And itís so hard (got caught, got caught), donít know what Iím going to do
Iíve got those Satanís been riding me so hard blues

Finally got to church, headed for my assigned pew
Looked and thereís a visitor sitting where Iím supposed to
Itís so hard (get off my pew), donít know what Iím going to do
Iíve got those Satanís been riding me so hard blues

Preacher started preaching, his topic that day
Talking about gossip, then he looked my way
And itís so hard (paranoia, paranoia), about to drive me insane
Now when it comes to your tongue sister, youíve got to keep a tight rein

Invitation was given, thirty stood for the call
Instead of going forward they just headed to the mall
And itís so hard (shopping shopping, shopping shopping), donít know what Iím going to do
Iíve got those Satanís been riding me so hard blues

Now wait a minute...
Now Iíve got a Savior, He bled and he died (that's right)
Heís always standing, right here by my side (yes)
And Iím going to praise Him, until the day that I die
Then Heís going to take me to that mansion in the sky
And Itís so easy (hallelujah, hallelujah) I know what Iím going to do
You know Iím gonna praise the Lord...How about you?

"To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me."  2 Corinthians 12:7

Lyrics:

Spoken Vocal: "How about this?"

Never say goodbye
Never say goodbye
Never say goodbye

Spoken Vocal: "I like that, what about this.  Wanna add the tenor?  Sure."

Never say goodbye (never say, we'll never say no)
Never say goodbye (we'll never say, we'll never say no)
(We'll) Never say goodbye

Spoken Vocal: "Donja, you take the top"

Never say goodbye (never say, we'll never say no)
Never say goodbye (we'll never say, we'll never say no)
(We'll) Never say goodbye

Spoken Vocal: "Do that together"

Chorus:
Never say goodbye (never say (no), we'll never say no)
Never say goodbye (we'll never say (no), we'll never say no)
(We'll) Never say goodbye (never say goodbye)
When the journey's over (never say (no), we'll never say no)
We won't have to cry  (we'll never say (no), we'll never say no)
Cause we'll never say goodbye (never say goodbye)

Down here below the trials come and they beat me down everyday (trials everyday)
But we know that a day will come when the Savior will take us away (take us all away)

Where we'll...
Repeat Chorus

Now I've got friends and they don't know that Jesus is the way (Jesus is the way)
It's up to me to make it known that there will come a day (there will come a day)

Where we'll...
Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
Don't you want to come with me a sweet reunion there will be
And every eye will all be dry, we'll never say goodbye
Come along and join with me, we'll praise the Lord eternally
We'll shout and sing with Him on high, we'll never say goodbye, never say goodbye

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Repeat Chorus (background only)

Scriptural Reference:

"Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God.  Never again will he leave it.  I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name."  Revelation 3:12
