The Old Country Church

Words and music: J.D. Sumner © 1960
Lead: Donja Cary

Lyrics:

Oh Iíd like to go back to that old country church
And to hear the songs of priase
How the people would sing, it would make the heavens ring
At that old (at that old) country church

Shall we gather at the river
The beautiful, the beautiful river
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God

Oh Iíll never forget at that old country church
How the glory of the Lord came down (it came down)
And the children would smile as they shouted down the aisle
Of that old (of that old) country church

Leaning, leaning (I'm a-leaning)
Safe and secure from all alarms (I'm leaning)
Leaning, leaning (I'm a-leaning)
Leaning on the everlasting arms

Then on Sunday to see all my friends so dear to me
At that old country church
When it came time for prayer everybody would be there
At that old (at that old) country church

In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore

Now the years have gone by and so many have died
At that old country church
But theyíre on the other shore and theyíll sing forever more
As they did at that old country church

Iím redeemed (I'm redeemed), by love divine (by love divine)
Glory, glory (glory, glory) Christ is mine (Christ is mine)
All to Him (all to Him), I now resign (I now resign)
(I have been) I have been redeemed (redeemed)

At that old country church (old country church)

Scriptural Reference:

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us."  Hebrews 12:1

He Calls Me His Child

Words and music: Danice Sweet and Holly Beaty © 2002 Revival Ministries
Inspired by Kay Perdue
Lead: Donja Cary (verses, chorus, and bridge) and Danice Sweet (closing)

Lyrics:

Iím a tree I can bend
When the storm comes rushing in
Iím strong my roots run deep
But when problems come along
Thereís just a part of me that forgets all He's done
He never does, He never does

Chorus:
He never gives up on the weary
He never gives up on the weak
And every time Iíve fallen down
He lifts me to my feet (lifts me to my feet)
In your eyes Iím a hopeless case
But that is just because
You may have all but given up
He never does, He never does

He forgives and forgets
Puts my sins as far as east is
From the west
And then hopes for the best
Thereís just a part of me that doubts that great a love
He never does, He never does

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
And when I feel like hope is gone
His precious mercy comes along
And though I donít deserve His grace and His love
He calls me his child just because, just because

Repeat Chorus

He never will, Heíll never give up on me
He never does, no, He never does
Iím His child and forever Iíll be
He never does
Some folks may give up on you
But He never will

Scriptural Reference:

"As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us."  Psalm 103:12

If That Isn't Love

Words and music: Dottie Rambo (1969)
Arrangement: Milton Pullen
This song also appeared on Jesus Our Savior by The Sounds of Glory.
Lead: Donja Cary

Lyrics:

He left the splendor of Heaven
Knowing His destiny
Was the lonely hill of Golgotha
There to lay down His life for me

Even in death He remembered
The thief hanging by His side
He spoke with love and compassion
Then He took him to paradise

Chorus:
If that isnít love, if that isnít love
The ocean is dry, the ocean is dry
Thereís no star in the sky
And the sparrow canít fly (sparrow canít fly)
If that isnít love (if that isnít love)
Then heavenís a myth, then heavenís a myth
Thereís no feeling like this
If that isnít love
If that isnít love

Scriptural Reference:

"This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.  This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins."  1 John 4:9-10

I Want to Be Just Like You

Words and music: Dan Dean and Joy Becker
Lead: Terry Lewis

Lyrics:

He climbs in my lap for a goodnight hug
He calls me dad and I call him bug
Faded old pillow and a bear named pooh
He snuggles up close and says, "I wanna be like you"

I tuck him in bed and I kiss him goodnight
Trippiní over the toys as I turn out the light
And I whisper a prayer that maybe someday heíll see
Heís got a Father in God Ďcause heís seen Jesus in me

Chorus:
Lord I want to be just like you 'cause he wants to be just like me
I want to be a holy example for his innocent eyes to see (learning from the father)
Help me be a living Bible, Lord that my little boy can read
I wanna be just like you 'cause he wants to be like me

Iíve got to admit Iíve got so far to go
Make so many mistakes and Iím sure that you know
Sometimes it seems no matter how hard I try
With all the pressures in life, I just canít get it all right

But Iím trying so hard to learn from the best
Being patient and kind filled with you tenderness
Cause I know that heíll learn from the things that he sees
And the Jesus he finds will be the Jesus in me

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
Right now from where he stands I may seem mighty tall
But itís only cause Iím learning from the best Father of them all

Repeat Chorus

I want to be just like you
'Cause he wants to be like me

Weep, O Mine Eyes

Words: John Bennet and Revival © 2002 Revival Ministries
Music: John Bennet
Lead: None
Spoken Vocal: Terry Lewis

Lyrics:

Spoken Vocal:
Early in the morning Mary ran to the tomb
But the stone had been rolled away and the tomb was empty.
"They have taken away my Lord, I donít know where theyíve laid Him," she cried
"Donít weep Mary, dry your eyes filled with sorrow, for all that he has said has come true"
"The grave is empty, The Lord has risen from the dead"

Round 1:
Weep, weep, weep, O mine eyes and cease not
Weep O mine eyes and cease not
Weep O mine eyes and cease not

Round 2:
Alas, the lamb was slain, alas
The lamb was slain, the lamb was slain

Round 3:
O death, O death where is they sting?
Where is thy victory?
Heís risen, risen from the grave
Heís risen from the grave

Repeat Round 3

Scriptural Reference:

"They asked her, 'Woman, why are you crying?' 'They have taken my Lord away,' she said, 'and I don't know where they have put him.'  At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.  'Woman,' he said, 'why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?'  Thinking he was the gardener, she said, 'Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.'"  John 20:13-15
