There Must Be a City

Words and music: James Hill
Lead: Craig Hayes

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Well, there must be a city
There must be a place
There must be somewhere
I can see Him face to face
There must be a mansion
High up in the sky
There must be a city somewhere (oh yeah)

Repeat Chorus

Well one of these mornings
It won't be long
You're going to look for me
And I'll be gone
I'm going up to heaven to sing and shout
There'll be nobody there to turn me out
I'm gonna look up David in the heat of the day
Tune up my harp and begin to play
There must be a city somewhere (oh yeah)

Repeat Chorus

Well when I get to heaven I'll sing an shout
There'll be nobody there to turn me out
I'm gonna look up David in the heat of the day
Tune up my harp and begin to play
I'm gonna look up David in the heat of the day
Tune up my harp and begin to play
There must be a city somewhere (oh yeah)

Repeat Chorus

Scriptural Reference:

"I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband."  Revelation 21:2

I Don't Mind

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

Lyrics:

I don't mind my sorrow, I don't mind my tears
I don't mind my heartaches, cause my Lord is near
When I think of Calvary my troubles are behind
Cause He died to save me, I don't mind

Chorus:
Oh, I don't mind (I don't mind), sometimes I stumble along
I don't mind (I don't mind), He gives my heart a song
I don't mind (I don't mind), I know when things go wrong
All His blessings are mine, so, I don't mind (so I don't mind)

When I am discouraged, when I'm feeling blue
I just call on Jesus, He knows what to do
When I have a battle, He's always there on time
And at Jordan's river, I won't mind

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Scriptural Reference:

"I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.  I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want."  Phillipians 4:12

Someday

Words and music: Olive Stockton and Tim Stafford Daniel House Music (BMI)
Arrangement: Revival
Lead: Danice Sweet

Lyrics:

Someday when my last line is written
Someday when I've drawn my last breath
When my last words on earth have been spoken
And my lips are sealed in death

Don't look on my cold form in pity
Don't think of me as one dead
It'll just be the house I once lived in
My spirit by then will have fled

I'll have finished my time here allotted
But I won't be in darkness alone
I will have heard from heaven
The summons to come on home (come on home)

And when my body is in the grave
Don't think that I'll be there
I won't be dead but living
In the place Jesus went to prepare

And after all is said and done
Know that my last earnest prayer
Is that my loved ones are ready
Someday, to meet me there

Scriptural Reference:

"We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord."  2 Corinthians 5:8

Peanut Butter Song

Words and music: Unknown
Lead: Danice Sweet

Lyrics:

One day a child came home from football
Where he had fumbled, been jeered and booed
His mother knew that his heart was breakin'
And so she made him his favorite food

Chorus 1:
She did not make (a bowl) a bowl of salad greens
She made no whole wheat rolls or a pile of beans
She made him sandwiches on toasted white bread
With peanut butter, creamy style

The years went by and he was a loser
He led a useless and wretched life
His mother never criticized him
She only smiled as she got out the knife

Repeat Chorus 1

So he decided on the basis
Of a book that he had read that fall
That all his problems had resulted
From excessive cholesterol

Chorus 2:
And so she made (a bowl) a bowl of salad greens
She made some whole wheat rolls and a pile of beans
She made no sandwiches on toasted white bread
With peanut butter, creamy style

That night his dog died, He wrecked his pick-up
His sweet heart left him, He lost his hair
His house caught fire, He went to prison
His dear old mother came to him there

Repeat Chorus

She made him sandwiches on toasted white bread (you know choosy mothers do choose Jiff)
With peanut butter, creamy style

Scriptural Reference:

"Jesus answered, 'It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.''"  Matthew 4:4

Climbing up the mountain children
(Oh Lord I) Didn't come here for to stay
(Oh brother) If I never more see you again
Goin' to meet you at the judgement day

Repeat Verse 1

Moses went down into Egypt land
He told ole Pharoah
That the good Lord sittin' on His heavenly throne
Said, let my people go

Daniel in the den of lions
He did begin to pray
That the Angel of the Lord locked the lion's jaw
That sho' was a mighty day (good Lord)
Sho' was a mighty day

Chorus:
(I'm gonna ride) Ride the chariot in the mornin' Lord
(I'm gonna ride) Ride the chariot in the mornin' Lord
(I'm gettin' ready) I'm gettin' ready for the judgment day
My Lord, my Lord

Repeat Chorus

Are you ready, my brother? (oh yes)
Are you ready for the journey? (oh yes)
Do you want to see your Jesus? (oh yes)
I'm waiting for the chariot 'cause I'm ready to go

Are you ready, my sister? (oh yes)
Are you ready for the journey? (oh yes)
Do you want to see your Jesus? (oh yes)
I'm waiting for the chariot 'cause I'm ready to go

Repeat Chorus

Ride the chariot in the mornin' Lord
Ride the chariot in the mornin' Lord
(I'm gettin' ready) I'm gettin' ready for the judgment day
(I'm ready for) For the judgment day (I'll be ready for the day)

If There Were No You

Words and music: Danice Sweet
This song also appeared on Best of Revival by Revival.
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 God's 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 I've read where that stone was rolled away
The tomb was sealed and secured then on the third day
He is risen as He said
He's 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 I'd 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

I'm Just a Stranger Here

Words and music: Albert E. Brumley
Lead: Donja Cary

Lyrics:

Dear Lord of Calvary, again I come to Thee
And seek Thy precious hand to guide
The way I'll never find without Thy love divine
And in Thy shelter I would hide
So Lord, I daily pray to lead me all the way
And let Thy presence linger ever near
I'm in a foreign land, nobody understands
O Lord, I'm just a stranger here (just a stranger here)

Chorus:
(I'm just) Just a stranger here, (a stranger) just a stranger here
(Here) Here I daily roam, (I roam) here I daily roam
(No one) One to guide me on, (here to guide me) guide me precious Lord
(Lord I have) Lord I have no home, (no home) Lord I have no home
(So now Lord) Lord look down on me, (look down) ever down on me
(Hear me) Hear me when I pray, (when I pray) hear me when I pray
(I need) Need Thy guiding light, (Thy light) need Thy guiding light
For I am just a stranger here

Repeat Chorus

Lord I'm just a stranger, I am just a stranger here (just a stranger here)

Scriptural Reference:

"For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God."  Hebrews 11:10

Show Me the Cross

Words: Danice Sweet (with special thanks to Max Lucado)
Music: Mark Flickinger
Lead: Danice Sweet

Lyrics:

Hundreds of miles, thousands of miracles
The journey to the cross began before Calvary
Angels were silent as the Son of man
Defeated death so we could all be free

Chorus 1:
(And He said...)
Show me the cross
I'll find my way home from there
Show me the cross
It's not too heavy to bear
Show me the cross
All is not lost
I can find my way (I can find my way)
Show me the cross

It was no surprise, no hesitation
His death had a purpose, it was meant to be
His parable of grace started in a manger
Led to a cross for eternity

Chorus 2:
(And we sing...)
Show me the cross
I'll find my way home from there
Show me the cross
It's not too heavy to bear
Show me the cross (show me the cross)
All is not lost
I can find my way (I can find my way)
I can find my way (I can find my way)
I can find my way
Show me the cross

Scriptural Reference:

"Having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross."  Colossians 2:14

In Heaven There Won't Be No Blues

Words and music: Chet Sweet and Danice Sweet
Lead: Chet Sweet

Lyrics:

There's some people here below (here below)
You know all they do is moan (they moan)
They're practicing for something I don't know (I don't know)
I'm just going to praise His name (praise His name)
'Til I get it right someday (right someday)
Then I'll be ready when He takes me home (takes me home)

Chorus:
In Heaven there won't be no blues (won't be no blues)
We'll be singing and shouting the Good News (shoutin' the News)
The glory trains a-comin'
And I've got my travelin' shoes
Cause in Heaven there won't be no blues (won't be no blues)

Jesus is your Savior
Despite your behavior
You know He died for everything you've done (all you've done)
And the fact that you're forgiven (forgiven)
Gives you a cause for livin' (you're livin')
That's the reason God gave up His Son (gave His Son)

Repeat Chorus

Well your cash and all your moolah (moolahlah)
Can take you to Honolula (moolahlah)
But your money you know it can not buy you time (buy you time)
Because the Lord just might come (Lord might come)
In the midst of your fun (in your fun)
Your bank account can't give you peace of mind (peace of mind)

Repeat Chorus (x2)

You know in Heaven there won't be no blues (won't be no blues)
I said in Heaven there won't be no blues (won't be no blues)
