Lyrics:

Defending your life...
Defending your life...

Chorus:
Defending your life on the Judgement Day
Defending your life what will you say
Defending your life on the Judgement Day
Defending your life what will you say (what will you say)

You know I've always been a dreamer
Livin' on the edge of sin and strife
I can't see the light of morning
Because I haven't got the Son in my life

Help me Jesus, I am tired of fallin' down (I'm tired of fallin' down)
Give me Jesus, the strength I need to come around

Repeat Chorus

You know my Jesus, He is praying
Hopin' that I will be Heaven bound
He broke the bonds of sin on Calvary
So that I could even wear a crown

Help me Jesus, I am tired of fallin' down (I'm tired of fallin' down)
Give me Jesus, the strength I need to come around

Repeat Chorus

When I am standing in the judgement
You know my Savior will be by my side
Pleading my case to the Father
Wipin' all the tears away from my eyes

Help me Jesus, I am tired of fallin' down (I'm tired of fallin' down)
Give me Jesus, the strength I need to come around

Repeat Chorus

In every deed and every choice that you make
In the way that you live every day
Will you reap what you've sown
In your life have you shown
A reason for the Master to say
(Welcome Home)

Defending your life...
Defending your life...
Defending your life on the Judgement Day
Defending your life what will you say
Defending your life...
Defending your life...
Defending your life...

Scriptural Reference:

"Defend my cause and redeem me; preserve my life according to your promise."  Psalm 119:154

Praisin' the Lord

Words: Bob Allsup and Russ Wooten © 1994 Bob Allsup
Music: Bob Allsup © 1994 Bob Allsup
Lead: Russ Wooten

Lyrics:

Praisin' the Lord comes from the heart
Singin' to Him is only the start
It's not the piano or David's harp
Praisin' the Lord comes from the heart

Chorus:
You've got to praise the Lord
You've got to sing it to Him; praise the Lord
Do you know my Jesus; praise the Lord
Come on and sing it with me; praise the Lord

Raise your holy hands; let the heavens ring
Listen my brother, there's one more thing
The melodies are sweet, to Christ our King
But you've got to praise Him, when you sing

Repeat Chorus

Open your soul and let it all pour
Open your heart He'll open the door
We're just one people praisin' their Lord
So we can sing it, on the other shore

Repeat Chorus

Praise (praise) the Lord

You've got to sing it with the spirit and understanding
Got to praise Him with your heart
Sing it with the spirit and understanding
Got to praise Him with your heart

You've got to sing it with the spirit and understanding
Got to praise Him with your heart
Sing it with the spirit and understanding
Got to praise Him with your heart

Scriptural Reference:

"I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever."  Psalm 86:12

Additional Arrangement: Joe House
Lead: Bob Allsup

Lyrics:

The warmth
The love
The cleansing
From the blood
Let it flow
Let it flow

Pour over me
Free me from sin
Open my heart
So You may come in
Let it flow
Let it flow

Chorus:
I was tossed about the sea
You walked on water to rescue me
I was blind, but now I see
You opened my eyes on Calvary

I love
Your ways
For I am saved
By your Grace
Let it flow
Let it flow
You touched
My heart
You gave me
A brand new start
Let it flow
Let it flow

Repeat Chorus

The price You paid
At Calvary
The Blood you shed
For a man like me
Let it flow
Let it flow
The tears
In Your eyes
When you gave your
Only Son's life
Let it flow
Let it flow

Oh, the pain (oh, the pain) Oh, the strife
You chose death so we may have life
Let it flow
Let it flow
From His holy side, His love doth flow
Let it flow
Let it flow
(Let) Let Your love flow

He Shows Me Everything

Words and music: Kevin Percival © 1994 Kevin Percival
Lead: Gary Ferguson

Lyrics:

He shows me everything (everything)
That I can be (can be)
And with His loving hand (And with His loving hand)
He strengthens me (He strengthens me) Ooh...

When everything's wrong, He seems to make it alright
He shows me everything I can be
When I'm at my weakest, He gives strength for the fight
He shows me everything I can be
Ooh...
He shows me everything I can be

When life is a struggle, He says all is not lost
He shows me everything I can be
When I look away, He points me back to the cross
He shows me everything I can be
Ooh...
He shows me everything I can be

Chorus:
He paid the price, a sacrifice
For every sinner like me
He gave a light, that shines so bright
To show me everything I can be
Ooh...
He shows me everything I can be

When everything's chaos, He restores peace and calm
He shows me everything I can be
When I start to fall, He lets me lean on His arm
He shows me everything I can be
Ooh...
He shows me everything I can be

On my own I cannot see
All He wants me to be
With the faith that He's given to me
Now I know I'm totally free, ooh...

When I try to earn it, He reminds me it's grace
He shows me everything I can be
When I'm full of pride, He puts me back in my place
He shows me everything I can be
Ooh...
He shows me everything I can be

Repeat Chorus

He shows me everything (everything)
That I can be

Scriptural Reference:

"For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, to your amazement he will show him even greater things than these."  John 5:20

Jesus is Trying to Tell You Something

Words and music: Bob Allsup © 1994 Bob Allsup
Lead: Bob Allsup

Lyrics:

I had a dream I was walkin' with Saul (walkin', talkin')
The Chrisitans he was chasing, he was killing them all
Falling to his knees, it was God that he saw

Blinded by the light
He heard the call (he heard the call)

Chorus 1:
Jesus is tryin' to tell you somethin'
Jesus is tryin' to tell you somethin'
Jesus is tryin' to tell you somethin'
Jesus Christ my Lord

I had a dream I was walkin' with Paul (walkin', talkin')
He told me why Jesus died on the cross
Fulfilling the Scriptures, He saved all the lost

That's why we are saved
'Cause He paid the cost (He paid the cost)

Repeat Chorus 1

Bridge:
Last night I was dreaming 'bout the coming of the Lord
The trumpets were sounded, He was coming for His own
The sky opened up, rolling back like a scroll
On His robe I saw King of kings, Lord of lords

Repeat Chorus 1

I had a dream I was walkin' with John (walkin', talkin')
He told me 'bout a true love, the love the Lord
The love of our Master would open all doors

Seek and you will find
The love of the Lord (the love of the Lord)

Repeat Chorus 1

Repeat Bridge

Repeat Chorus 1

Jesus (Jesus)... My... Lord

Chorus 2:
Jesus is tryin' to tell you somethin' (He's trying to tell you that we're free from sin)
Jesus is tryin' to tell you somethin' (God blessed His children right then)
Jesus is tryin' to tell you somethin'
Jesus Christ my Lord

He's trying to tell you that you're free

Repeat Chorus 2

(Oh yeah)
Jesus Christ my Lord (yes He is)
Jesus Christ my Lord (yes we're talking 'bout)
Jesus is tryin' to tell you (He's tryin' to tell you) somethin' (oh)

So, if we walk in the light, as He is in the light
He will forgive this wretched man

And love your neighbor as yourself (as yourself)

Forgiveness you ask when you pray
No worries, no strife, get on with your life
Christians aren't perfect, just saved

So, when you feel the need to plant the seed
Share His Word, He'll do the rest (do the rest)
When harvest has come, He'll say well done
Forever with Him we'll be blest (Him we'll be blest)

Come my pilgrim enter in
You've fought the good fight, you've lived in the light
Forevermore to live again

You'll Say His Name

Words and music: Kevin Percival © 1994 Kevin Percival
Lead: Kevin Percival

Lyrics:

If you say you don't believe it (don't believe it)
There is one thing you should know
There's a day that you will need it (you will need it)
When the final trump will blow

You'll find you'll have no choice
The truth will take your voice and say His name

Chorus:
Jesus (Jesus) . . . Christ is the Messiah
Jesus (Jesus) . . . Son of God on high
Jesus (Jesus) . . . Every tongue will sing (sing it)
Jesus (Jesus) . . . Christ the King of kings

If you say, "Maybe tomorrow
I don't have a need today"
There's a day that's filled with sorrow
For the child who fell away (away, away, away, away)

You'll feel it in your heart
Your lips can only start to say His name

Repeat Chorus

When the saved of the earth shall gather
There upon the other shore
We will sing (we will sing) the name of Jesus
Like we never have before

With joyous voices raised
Forever we will praise His Holy Name

Everyone will bow (everyone will bow)
Every knee to the ground (to the ground)
Every voice will be the same (every voice will be the same)
Everyone will say His name

Every voice
Everyone will say His name

Only Son

Words and music: Bob Allsup © 1994 Bob Allsup
Lead: Gary Ferguson

Lyrics:

God blessed me with a son
To carry on my name
But I know the real reason was
To show me why Jesus came
In the middle of the night, if I awake
I will stand and watch him sleeping
Looking down I'll touch his face

Then I think about when he grows older
Hopin' he won't turn around
I must teach him how to love the Lord
So the world can't bring him down
Words cannot express the way I feel about my son
Truly this is God showing me
Why He gave His only one

Chorus:
Only Son (only Son)
How I long to know Your ways
Only One (only One)
What a gift of matchless grace
Now I know why You gave me
A precious son to love
For the sake of Your only one

Now he's grown a little older
Into a man becomes my son
He doesn't listen to his daddy much
He just turned twenty-one
But like his father learned the hard way
He must also learn one day
Until the Lord becomes his guiding light
He will never find his way

Repeat Chorus (x2)

How I love my only son
I can't believe you gave your only Son
Precious one begotten Son
Only One

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."  1 John 4:9

Useless Hammer

Words and music: Kevin Percival © 1995 Kevin Percival
Lead: Russ Wooten

Lyrics:

Chorus:
I am nothing more than a useless hammer
Until placed in the carpenter's hand
I am nothing more than a wand'ring pilgrim
All alone in a far-away land
Im am nothing more than a very small child
Not yet grown up into a man
I am nothing more than a useless hammer
Until placed in the carpenter's hand

Use me Lord
This will always be my humble plea
Give me faith
Built upon the cross of Calvary

It's all from You (all from You), and not from me (not from me)
You showed the way (showed the way), and now I see (now I see)
That I am...

Repeat Chorus

Use me Lord
I will be your servant to the end
Give me strength
Like a tempered steel, I will not blend

It's all from You (all from You), and not from me (not from me)
You showed the way (showed the way), and now I see (now I see)
That I am...

Repeat Chorus

A hammer lays quiet and lifeless and still
It can't on its own do a thing
But placed in the hands fo the one with the skill
Its pounding will make Heavens ring

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Scriptural Reference:

"And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith."  1 Corinthians 15:14

So my soul longs after you
You alone are my heartís desire
And I long to worship you

You alone are my strength, my shield
To you alone may my spirit yield

And the apple of my eye
