Lyrics:

Chorus 1:
Revive us Lord as we call on Your name
Send a revival, a revival
Revive us Lord that the world may be changed
Send a revival, a revival, a revival

I've been servin' (I've been servin') Jesus the rock
Wolves come callin' and they pull from the flock
And it seems that they are stronger than our precious Lord
But it's time for us to rise up and to draw our sword

Repeat Chorus 1

Are you searching (are you searching) for the answer (are you searching for the answer)
(You know that) Christ is the cure for life's cancer
Ask me how I know for sure this promise is for real (is for real)
My faith is for certain it's much more than how I feel (more than how I feel)

Chorus 2:
Revive us Lord as we call on Your name (as we call on Your name)
Send a revival, a revival
Revive us Lord that the world may be changed (that the world may be changed)
Send a revival, a revival, a revival

A revival

"Then we will not turn away from you; revive us, and we will call on your name."  Psalm 80:18

Lyrics:

Chorus:
I will speak Your name when the storm is raging
I will speak Your name when the sea is calm
I will speak Your name when my fears o'ertake me
And forever on my lips I will speak Your name

You are my God (God, God), a help in time of trouble
And my source (source, source) of my salvation
And forever in my heart You will remain
I will speak Your name

Repeat Chorus

You are my King (King, King) an I'm here to serve You
And I sing (sing, sing) praises to the Lamb
And the riches of this world I shall not claim
For I will speak Your name

Bridge:
Well why can't You answer in words I understand
And I can't make sense of all Your plans
I will still speak Your name

Repeat Chorus

I'll speak Your name, speak Your name, speak Your name

I Call You Friend

Words and music: Danice Sweet
This song also appeared on Best of Revival by Revival.
Lead: Rodney Britt

Lyrics:

Chorus 1:
I call you friend
The time we spend together goes so fast
Until the end
In Heaven we know the time will last

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

Repeat Chorus 1

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

Chorus 2:
I call you friend (you can call me friend)
The time we spend together goes so fast
Until the end
In Heaven we know the time will last

When I feel helpless and no one can be found
His words remind 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 calls me friend

Repeat Chorus 1

Chorus 2:
I call you friend (I can call you 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

Scriptural Reference:

"My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God; on behalf of a man he pleads with God as a man pleads for his friend."  Job 16:20-21

Whatcha Gonna Do About It

Words and music: Danice Sweet
Lead: Danice Sweet

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Whatcha gonna do about it? (do about it, do do about it)
Are you gonna to worry or are you gonna to pray? (do about it, do do about it)
Whatcha gonna do about it? (do about it, do do about it)
Spiritual decisions made every day

Every day we travel through life deciding the path that we'll take (the path that we'll take)
Rocky the road and narrow the way and many the choices we make (choices we make)
When faced with a decision, standing all alone, wondering the direction to go (which way you gonna go?)
You know inside what you've gotta do, will you answer yes or no (no)?

Repeat Chorus

It's easy to say that we're walking in the light, fellowshipping with the Son (fellowshipping with Christ)
Only you know the fear in the heart when the shadow of moonlight comes (moonlight will fall)
Countin' on His promises, trustin' in His love, it's easier said than it's done (just trust in His love)
There's not a promise that He hasn't kept, not a solitary one (one)

Repeat Chorus

Do about it, do do about it
Do about it, do do about it
Do about it, do do about it
Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do (do about it, do do about it)
Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do, gonna do (do about it, do do about it)

Repeat Chorus

Scriptural Reference:

What will you do on the day of reckoning, when disaster comes from afar?  To whom will you run for help?  Where will you leave your riches?"  Isaiah 10:3

Nothing Like the Feeling

Words and music: Danice Sweet
Lead: Charles Gardener

Lyrics:

Chorus 1:
Well there's nothing like the feeling of harmony
Singing with my brothers as they sing with me
Liftin' up our praises to the King of kings
No there's nothing like feeling of harmony

We might not be in the building or going door to door
We might not have our Sunday suits and praise the Lord
We hope you like the music, but pray there's something more
Liftin' up our voices singing one accord

Chorus 2:
No there's nothing like the feeling of harmony
Singing with my brothers as they sing with me
Liftin' up our praises to the King of kings
You know there's nothing like feeling of harmony

You might prefer tradition or a soulful hymn
You might not like percussion nor to say "Amen"
But if the Lord is liften won't you join on in
And help us sing the chorus once again

Repeat Chorus 2 (x2)

Scriptural Reference:

"He says, 'I will declare your name to my brothers; in the presence of the congregation I will sing your praises.'"  Hebrews 2:12

No sad goodbyes will there be spoken
And time won't matter anymore

Chorus:
Beulah Land, I'm longing for you
And someday on thee I'll stand
There my home (there my home) shall be eternal

To where my faith will end in sight
There's just a few more days to labor
Then I'll take my Heavenly flight

Beulah Land, I'm longing for you

Idle Words

Words and music: Danice Sweet and Shannon White
Lead: Danice Sweet

Lyrics:

A good man's gonna say good things, from His heart they're gonna come out
An evil man's gonna say bad things, you know what I'm talking about

Chrous:
Every idle word you say (every word you say)
He's gonna ask you, "Why, why, why"
You'll give an account on judgement day (judgement day)
So if you're tempted to talk, head for the door and just walk away

A slip of the tongue can be deadly, cut your brother right to the heart
You might not be the one speakin', but if you're still taking part

Repeat Chorus

God's given us the gift of speech, so don't be puttin' down (down)
Just use it wisely and you'll see that we can wear a crown

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Walk away, walk away

"'If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath and from doing as you please on my holy day, if you call the Sabbath a delight and the LORD's holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way and not doing as you please or speaking idle words, then you will find your joy in the LORD, and I will cause you to ride on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob.'  The mouth of the LORD has spoken."  Isaiah 58:13-14

Humbly

Words and music: Danice Sweet
This song also appeared on Best of Revival by Revival.
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
We've got to tell the world about you (we've got to 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
I know it's not the way You planned our walk together here
We've got to help each other or we're never gonna 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
Why can't we stop judging one another
It comes down to love
And being more like You
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

Create a Change in Me

Words and music: Danice Sweet
Lead: Danice Sweet

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Create a change in me that I might live life free from all that entangles
Creator of life, this is my plea, create a change in me

I don't know what posseses my soul when I find myself acting this way
All I know is that a change must occur and I'm on my knees to say

Repeat Chorus

When I'm home with the ones I love Satan catches me off guard
Lord forgive all the times that I've hurt them, cutting them to the heart

Repeat Chorus

At my job I want people to know of the love You have for me
Not to boast except for the cross and how it has set me free

Repeat Chorus

You are the God of second chances (chances)
That's what I ask of You today

I'm requesting...
Repeat Chorus (x2)

Creator of life, this is my plea, create a change in me

Satan's Been Ridin' Me Blues

Words and music: Chet Sweet
This song also appeared on Best of Revival by Revival.
Lead: Chet Sweet

Lyrics:

Woke up Sunday morning, I looked at the time
Wake up, Honey, itís almost twenty past nine
And weíre late (you're late, you're late) for Sunday school
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
Well 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), wish I knew what 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
And itís so hard (get off my pew), donít know what Iím going to do (how 'bout you?)
Iíve got those Satanís been riding me so hard blues

Preacher started preaching, on his topic that day
Talking about gossip as he looked my way
And itís so hard (paranoia, paranoia), 'bout to drive me insane
Well when it comes to that tongue brother, you better keep a tight rein

Now listen to me now, I know what I'm talking about

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

Now wait a minute...
Well Iíve got a Savior, He bled and he died (that's right)
Heís always standing, right here by my side
And Iím gonna serve Him, until the day that I die (that's my Jesus)
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
Iím gonna serve my Lord...How about you?

Scriptural Reference:

"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
