Lyrics:

I have started for a city on that bright eternal shore
Where the saints of God shall gather and live on forevermore
Tis a land of love and purity where my possessions lie
And I am bound for the land of Canaan when I die (when I die)

Chorus:
Oh yes Iím bound (bound for the land of Canaan)
For the land of Canaan (Canaan yes I am)
By the love and grace of God (love of God)
That city Iím gaininí (I am gaining ground)
Some happy day (some happy day)
With all the ransomed Iíll stand
And sing His praise way over in Canaanís happy land (happy land)

Oh the land of rest eternal where the living waters flow
Evíry day Iím one day nearer to its portals, this I know.
Some sweet morning Iíll be singing ďGlory, gloryĒ to the Lamb
For I am bound for the land of Canaan yes I am (yes I am)

Do not wait until some deed of greatness you may do
Do not wait to shed your light afar
To the many duties ever near you now be true
Brighten the corner where you are

Brighten the corner where you are (shine for Jesus where you are)
Brighten the corner where you are
Someone far from harbor you may guide across the bar
Brighten the corner where you are (corner where you are)

Brighten the corner where you are
Brighten the corner where you are
Someone far from harbor you may guide across the bar
Brighten the corner where you are

So let the sunshine in
Face it with a grin
Smilers never lose
Frowners never win
So let the sunshine in
Face it with a grin
Open up your heart and let the sunshine in

This little light of mine
Oh, Iím gonna let it shine
This little light of mine
Iím gonna let it shine
This little light of mine
Oh, Iím gonna let it shine
Evíry day Iíll let my little light shine

Hide it under a bushel?  No.
Iím gonna let it shine
Hide it under a bushel?  No.
Iím gonna let it shine
Hide it under a bushel?  No.
Iím gonna let it shine
Evíry day Iíll let my little light shine, shine, shine

Brighten the corner where you are
Brighten the corner where you are
Someone far from the harbor you may guide across the bar
Brighten the corner where you are (corner where you are)

I Don't Want to Live No More Without Jesus

Words and music: Carvel Horton © 1982
Lead: Charles Davis

Lyrics:

Many times I get discouraged wondíring what I can do
Troubles seem to pile upon me with no answer in view
Then a voice within me whispers there is one who still cares
On your knees and call on Jesus
He will answer your prayer

Chorus:
I donít want to live (live no more)
No more (live no more)
Without Jesus (live without my Lord)
I donít want the heartaches
Nor the world that sin makes
Following me (following me)
I donít want to live (live no more)
No more (live no more)
Without Jesus (live without my Lord)
Iíve a life eternal
In the home supernal
Waiting for me (waiting for me)

Lonely roads I have to travel, oftentimes all alone
Seems I have no earthly help, my friends and loved ones are gone
Greater love is waiting for me at the end of this road
Iíve a place just waiting for me at the end of this road

Repeat Chorus (x2)

(waiting for me, waiting for me, for me)

Scriptural Reference:

ďIn my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you.  I am going there to prepare a place for you.Ē  John 14:2

Shout

Words and music:
Lead: Dale Underwood

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Well, I said shout (shout)
Come on get ready
The day of the Lord is come
So shout (shout)
Come on get ready
The battleís already won
So put on your armor, helmet and shield
Take out your sword and go into the field
So shout (shout)
Come on get ready
The day of the Lord is here

Well it seems that the children of Israel
Brought their journey to an end
And though Jericho seemed mighty
The Lord said they would win
Well they marched around that city
And blew that trumpet blast
And they gave that mighty shout at last
And the walls came tumbliní down

Repeat Chorus

When it seems like troubles and trials
Cause your hopes to come crashiní down
And even though youíre waiting
The walls keep closiní Ďround
Well, trust in God your Savior
And in your faith stand fast
Just listen for the trumpet blast
And the walls will come tumbliní down

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Well I said shout (shout)
Come on get ready
The day of the Lord is here

Well I said shout!

Who Am I?

Words and music: Charles (Rusty) Goodman © 1965
Lead: None

Lyrics:

Then I ask myself a question Ė who am I?

When I think of how He came so far from glory
Came to dwell among the lowly such as I
To suffer shame and such disgrace
On Mount Calvary take my place
Then I ask myself this question
Who am I?

Chorus:
Who am I that a King would bleed and die for
Who am I that He would pray not my will, thine Lord
The answer I may never know
Why He ever loved me so
But to an old rugged cross He'd go
For who am I?

Then I'm reminded of His words
I'll leave thee never
So just be true, I'll give to you my life forever
I wonder what I could have done
To deserve God's only Son
Fight my battles Ďtil they're won
Who am I?

Repeat Chorus

Scriptural Reference:

"You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.  Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.  But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."  Romans 5:6-8

Peace in the Valley

Words and music: Thomas A. Dorsey (1937)

Lyrics:

Well Iím tired and so weary
But I must go along
ĎTil the Lord comes and calls me away, oh yes
Well the morning is bright
And the Lamb, the Lamb is the light
And the night, night is as fair as the day, oh yes

Chorus:
And there will be peace in the valley for me someday
Oh, there will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray
Well, thereíll be no sadness, no sorrow, no trouble Iíll see
There will be peace in the valley for me (for me)

Well the flowers will be blooming
And the grass, oh it will be green
And the skies will be clear and serene, oh yes
Well the sun ever beams in this valley of dreams
And no clouds there will ever be seen, oh yes

Repeat Chorus

The Sweetest Song I Know

Words and music: Albert E. Brumley © 1941
Lead: None

Lyrics:

Iíve heard them sing ďHe Paid the PriceĒ and ďJesus Bore It AllĒ
Iíve heard them sing ďIím Coming HomeĒ and ďHear the Masterís CallĒ
Iíve heard them sing the modern songs and songs of long ago
But Amazing Grace, How Sweet the Sound (amazing grace)
Is the sweetest song I know

Chorus:
Amazing grace (amazing grace, how sweet the sound)
How sweet the sound (oh how sweet is the sound)
No sweeter song (sweeter song, sweeter song)
Could eíer be found (in this life could be found)
Iíve heard of a fountain (heard of the dear Saviorís blood)
Filled with blood (that washed us white, white as snow)
But Amazing Grace (amazing grace, how sweet the sound)
Is the sweetest song I know

It was the song my mother sang in sweet and humble voice
Like music from the world above, it made my soul rejoice
Its soothing words and melody like rippling waters flow
But Amazing Grace (amazing grace, how sweet the sound)
Is the sweetest song I know

Repeat Chorus (x2)

". . . to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves."  Ephesians 1:6

Lead: Lanier Stevens, Charles Davis, and C.D. Davis
Spoken Vocal: C.D. Davis

Lyrics:

My God and I go in the field together
We walk and talk as good friends should and do
We clasp our hands, our voices ring with laughter
My God and I walk through the meadowís hue
We clasp our hands, our voices ring with laughter
My God and I walk through the meadowís hue

He tells me of the years that went before me
When heavenly plans were made for me to be
When all was but a dream of dim reflection
To come to life, earth's verdant glory see
When all was but a dream of dim reflection
To come to life, earth's verdant glory see

My God and I will go for aye together
We'll walk and talk just as good friends do
This earth will pass, and with it common trifles
But God and I will go unendingly
This earth will pass, and with it common trifles
But God and I will go unendingly

Spoken Vocal:
I will lift mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help.  My help cometh from the Lord.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Scriptural Reference:

"I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.  My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth."  Psalm 121:1-2

On and on we walk together (on we walk together)
Christ is ever by my side (Christ is by my side)
And I fear no stormy weather (fear no stormy weather)
Heís a faithful guide (for He is a faithful guide)
You can never find another (you canít find another)
For the waves obey His will (waves obey His will)
And He speaks to you my brother (speaks to you my brother)
Hear His ďPeace, be stillĒ (come and hear His ďPeace, be stillĒ)

Upon my blessed Lord I lean, my all to Him confide

Lead: C.D. Davis and Charles Davis

Lyrics:

Iím going up the highway
That leads to mansions grand

Beyond these desert sands
No more Iíll stay in Egypt
Iím bound for Beulah land

Climbing up the highway of the King of Kings (climbing up, up the way, of the King of Kings)
In the light of His blessed love (in the light, of His, by His love, blessed love)
Everywhere I go, His praise Iíll sing (everywhere Iíll His blessed praises sing)
ĎTil I reach that home in Heavín above (Ďtil I reach, home in Heavín, home in Heavín above)
Iím going on each day with faith secure (going on, on each day, with a faith secure)
From the way Iíll never roam (from the way Iíll not ever roam, going home)
Oh yes Iíll run to the gates of glory land
There with the angels I shall stand (Iíll stand)
At the end of the highway is home (my heavínly home)

Iíll reach that land of promise
Some morning by and by
(Oh yes) Iíll be at home with Jesus
Beyond the starlit sky
My race will soon be ended
The time is drawing nigh
(But still) Iím traveling the glory highway
