Lyrics:

Chorus 1:
I'm trying to get ready (I'm trying to get ready)
I'm trying to get ready (I'm trying to get ready when He calls)
Oh I'm trying (I'm trying to put my house in order)
So I can walk in Jerusalem just like John

Repeat Chorus 1

Oh John said the city was just foursquare
I'm trying to get ready (I'm trying to get ready)
And by the grace of God He'll meet us all there
So I can walk (walk) in Jerusalem just like John

Chorus 2:
I'm going to walk (walk in Jerusalem)
Talk (talk in Jerusalem), sing (sing in Jerusalem)
Shout (shout in Jerusalem)
Walk in Jerusalem just like John

When Peter went to preaching at the Pentecost
I'm trying to get ready (I'm trying to get ready)
And His soul was filled with the Holy Ghost
So He could walk (walk) in Jerusalem just like John

Repeat Chorus 2

I'm traveling to the city where my friends have gone
I'm trying to get ready (I'm trying to get ready)
I'm just a weary pilgrim on my journey home
So we could walk (walk) in Jerusalem just like John

Repeat Chorus 2

Repeat Chorus 1 (x2)

I'm going to walk in Jerusalem
Just like John

Scriptural Reference:

"The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide.  He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12,000 stadia in length, and as wide and high as it is long."  Revelation 21:16

The Gentle Healer

Words and music: Michael Card © 1985
Lead:

Lyrics:

The Gentle Healer came into our town today
He touched blind eyes and the darkness left to stay
But more than the blindness, He took their sins away
The Gentle Healer came into our town today

The Gentle Healer came into our town today
He spoke one word that was all He had to say
And the one who had died just rose up straight away
The Gentle Healer came into our town today

Oh, He seems like just an ordinary man
With dirty feet and rough but gentle hands
But the words He says are hard to understand
And, yet, He seems like just an ordinary man

The Gentle Healer, He left our town today
I just looked around and found He'd gone away
Some folks from town had followed Him, they say
That the Gentle Healer is the Truth, the Life, the Way

Yes the Gentle Healer is the Truth, the Life, the Way

Scriptural Reference:

"Great crowds came to him, bringing the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute and many others, and laid them at his feet; and he healed them."  Matthew 15:30

Soon I'm Going Home

Words and music: Danice Sweet
Lead: Danice Sweet

Lyrics:

Hey yeah...

Soon I'm going home to see my Lord (soon I'm going home)
Yes to live with Him forever on that shore (soon I'm going home, soon I'm going home)
All I've got to do is just believe (soon I'm going home, soon I'm going home)
Yes to live by faith and keep on sewing seed (soon I'm going home, soon I'm going home)

Bridge:
Soon I'm going home, you know that's where I belong
No more grief and worry, no more doing wrong

Chorus:
(You know that) Soon I'm going home to see my Lord (soon I'm going home)
(I said) Soon I'm going home forevermore (home forevermore)
He has promised me and He never will deceive
Soon I'm going (soon I'm going, soon I'm going) home to see my Lord (soon I'm going home, soon I'm going home)

Come and let me show you where I'm bound (soon I'm going home, soon I'm going home)
Let me tell you about this Jesus that I've found (soon I'm going home, soon I'm going home)
He will take your burdens all away (soon I'm going home, soon I'm going home)
Yes and make your life grow sweeter every day (soon I'm going home, soon I'm going home)

Repeat Bridge

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Do you believe in my God? (I believe, I believe)
Do you believe that He gave His only Son? (I believe, I believe)
O Lord, do you believe that Jesus came here? (O yes, I believe, I believe)

Do you believe in Jesus? (I believe, I believe)
Do you believe that He died for you and me? (I believe, I believe)
O Lord, do you believe that He died here? (O yes, I believe, I believe)
On that cruel cross of Calvary? (I believe, I believe)
Oh if you believe today, then bretheren lets all say "amen (amen), say amen (amen)"

Do you believe in the Bible? (I believe, I believe)
Do you believe what it has to say? (I believe, I believe)
O Lord, do you believe in what it teaches? (O yes, I believe, I believe)
That there is only, there is only one way? (I believe, I believe)
If you believe today, then bretheren lets all say "amen (amen), say amen (amen)"

I believe in Jesus (I believe, I believe)
I still believe, I believe that Jesus Christ (I believe, I believe)
Sweet Lord, I believe He gave His precious life (O yes, I believe, I believe)
When He made that supreme sacrifice (I believe, I believe)
Yes, if you believe today, then won't you with us say "amen (amen), say amen (amen)"

Say "amen (amen)", Lord say "amen (amen)"

Infants Tossed To and Fro

Words and music: Charles Gardner, David Johnson, Danice Sweet, and Jamie A. Testerman
Lead:

Lyrics:

Chorus 1:
Infants tossed to and fro (they're babies)
Want their bottles, won't eat meat
Crave that baby food, it's so sweet
Have to be spoonfed, don't they know
If they don't eat right, they'll never grow
Infants tossed to and fro

Puttin' down brothers in the Lord
Don't know the meaning of one achord
Can't comprehend agape love
And consider the church a social club

Repeat Chorus 1

Song leader's tardy and sings too low
He's so off key and he doesn't know
"Amazing Grace" ain't even that slow
And I'm going to miss my TV show

Repeat Chorus 1

Bridge:
Still not ready for solid food
Insist on being fed
How can they ever lead the blind
When still they must be led (must be led)?

Repeat Chorus 1

I once was a baby, too
I'm still learning and so can you
Growing in knowledge, growing in Him
So I'll no longer be again

Chorus 2:
An infant tossed to and fro
Want their bottles, won't eat meat
Crave that baby food, it's so sweet
Have to be spoonfed, don't they know
If they don't eat right, they'll never grow
Infants tossed to and fro

Repeat Chorus 1

(They're babies) Infants tossed to and fro
(Where's the nursery) Infants tossed to and fro
(Don't want to be) Infants tossed to and fro (to and fro)

Scriptural Reference:

"Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming."  Ephesians 4:14

Lyrics:

Chorus:
You do what you gotta do, oh what you gotta do
You do what you gotta do, oh what you gotta do

Sometimes we have to suffer trials (You do what you gotta do)
And it often may last for awhile (You do what you gotta do)
Hold on child and He'll see you through
Sometimes it just comes down to doin' what you gotta do

Repeat Chorus

Someone may even curse your name (You do what you gotta do)
They'll come looking for someone to blame (You do what you gotta do)
Walk on child, all the way through
They can't take the truth from you, doin' what you gotta do

Repeat Chorus
