Walk On

Words and music: Bob Allsup 1998 Bob Allsup
Lead: Russ Wooten

Lyrics:

Peter and John approached the temple to pray
Where a crippled man from birth was at the temple gates
Where he laid to beg as the people came his way

When he saw Peter and John enter in
Well, he asked them for money
Peter looked straight at him
Crippled man looking up expecting to get something from them

Chorus:
Oh, Peter said
Silver and gold I don't have
But what I have to give you from the Great I Am
Is the power to stand up
And take me by the hand
Walk on crippled man
In the name of Jesus took him by the right hand
Well, he jumped to his feet
Walk on crippled man

Walk on and on...
The beggars feet and ankles they became very strong
He was praisin' the Lord, I assume in a song
Well, all the people were astonished, as he held on to Peter and John
Peter said, "Now tell me why do you stare at us?
As if by our own power or godliness
By his faith, he was healed in the name of Jesus

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Chorus (w/ "walk on crippled man" and stepouts)

Walk on crippled man
Walk on crippled man
Walk on crippled man
Walk on crippled man

Walk on

Scriptural Reference:

"One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer--at three in the afternoon.   Now a man crippled from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts.  When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money.  Peter looked straight at him, as did John.  Then Peter said, 'Look at us!'  So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.  Then Peter said, 'Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.  'Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man's feet and ankles became strong.  He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God."  Acts 3:1-8
"When Peter saw this, he said to them: 'Men of Israel, why does this surprise you? Why do you stare at us as if by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk?'"  Acts 3:12
"By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus' name and the faith that comes through him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see."  Acts 3:16

We Were There

Words and music: Bob Allsup 1999 Bob Allsup
Lead: Gary Ferguson

Lyrics:

We saw the miracles and signs
We saw the water changed to wine
We saw a man come to Jesus with leprosy
And with his hand Jesus touched him and the man was clean

Chorus:
Well, we were there
Yeah, we were there
Well, we were there
Hey, we were there

We walked the road to Jericho
We saw the blind man by the road
There he cried out to Jesus, "Have mercy on me"
And Jesus reached out and touched him and the man could see

Repeat Chorus

We awoke to see soldiers approach Him in Gethsemane (take this cup from me)
Led away to be judged by the council of the Pharisee (this is my destiny)
Though not guilty He knew He must suffer to set all men free (why have you forsaken me)
By His blood on the cross we have all won the sweet victory (it is finished... into thy hands I commit my spirit)

Repeat Chorus

We saw the miracles and signs
We saw the water changed to wine
We saw a man come to Jesus with leprosy
And with his hand sJesus touched him and the man was clean

Repeat Chorus (Jesus called us all one by one and we were with Him til His work was done)

Repeat Chorus (x4 with stepouts)

Scriptural Reference:

"As Jesus approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging.   When he heard the crowd going by, he asked what was happening.  They told him, 'Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.'  He called out, 'Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!'  Those who led the way rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, 'Son of David, have mercy on me!'  Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him, 'What do you want me to do for you?'  'Lord, I want to see,' he replied.  Jesus said to him, 'Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.'  Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God."  Luke 18:35-43

With Her Eyes

Words: Kevin Percival 1999 Kevin Percival
Music: Bob Allsup 1999 Kevin Percival
Lead: Bob Allsup

Lyrics:

As she trembled on her knees in tears
Wondering just what she would say (just what she would say)
No apologies could erase the years
Or take her guilt away (take her guilt away)
The sins in her heart were much too great
She was sure He would not forgive (sure He would not forgive)
Would it be her fate to cry out too late
Or could He be her reason to live (reason to live)

Chorus 2:
With her eyes, she said, "I'm not worthy"
With her tears, she begged, "Please, forgive me"
With her heart, she knew, "He'll set me free"
Though she spoke not a word
Jesus knew what she had to say, with her eyes

With her eyes, with her eyes, with her eyes

At a Pharisee's house on the good side of town
While they all reclined to eat (all reclined to eat)
She came into the house with her head bowed down
Humbly standing at His feet (standing at His feet)
With a jar of perfume, she poured out her sins
And she wept without a care (wept without a care)
The tears for whom she'd been fell again and again
And she wiped them with her hair (with her hair)

Repeat Chorus 1

Then Jesus told them, told a story
Of two men forgiven of debt, of debt
"Which would love more, the forgiver?
The one who had more, more to regret!"

Then Jesus said...

Chorus 2:
"Go in peace (go in peace, go in peace, your faith has saved you)
Your faith has saved you (go in peace, go in peace, your sins forgiven)
Go in peace (go in peace, go in peace, your faith has saved you)
Your sins are forgiven (go in peace, go in peace, your sins forgiven)"

Repeat Chorus 2 (x2)

Scriptural Reference:

"When a woman who had lived a sinful life in that town learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee's house, she brought an alabaster jar of perfume, and as she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them.  When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, 'If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is--that she is a sinner.'  Jesus answered him, 'Simon, I have something to tell you.'  'Tell me, teacher,' he said.  'Two men owed money to a certain moneylender.  One owed him five hundred denarii, and the other fifty.  Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he canceled the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?'  Simon replied, 'I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled.'  'You have judged correctly,' Jesus said.  Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, 'Do you see this woman?  I came into your house.  You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair.  You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet.  You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet.  Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven--for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little.'  Then Jesus said to her, 'Your sins are forgiven.'  The other guests began to say among themselves, 'Who is this who even forgives sins?'  Jesus said to the woman, 'Your faith has saved you; go in peace.'"  Luke 7:37-50

My Ship Came In

Words and music: Kevin Percival 1999 Kevin Percival
Lead: Kevin Percival

Lyrics:

Seems I've been waitin' forever for ships to come in
And I've been searchin' for treasure at the rainbows end
There must be somethin' or someone that I could have been
Before You came into my life... I was livin' in sin
Livin' in... I was livin' in sin (livin', livin')
Livin' in... I was livin' in sin (livin' in sin)
Livin' in... I was livin' in sin (livin', livin')
Livin' in

I thought my future looked so bright, but my sight was dim
And I was sure things were alright, but my life was grim
Thought I was winnin' but I was just losin' again
But when You came into my life... my ship came in
Ship came in... my ship came in (ship, my ship came in yeah)
Ship came in... my ship came in (ship, my ship came in yeah)
Ship came in... my ship came in (ship, my ship came in yeah, my ship)
Ship came in

Chorus:
Sometimes my day was very clear
Sometimes my way was filled with fear
Sometimes I could not see a thing
Blinded by my tears
When I see those harbor lights
I know peace again

You know my ship came in

If you've been lookin' for somethin', but nothin' you've found
Came close to stoppin' or movin' or turnin' you 'round
If you are open and hopin' and salvation bound
Then when He comes into your life... you gotta let Him in
Let Him in... just let Him in (let, just let Him in yeah)
Let Him in... gotta let Him in (let, just let Him in yeah)
Let Him in... just let Him in (let, just let Him in yeah, let Him)
Let Him in

Repeat Chorus

I know peace again
Lord keep fillin' me with peace

Ship came in... my ship came in (Jesus)
Ship came in... you know that my ship it came in
Ship came in... my ship came in (Jesus)
Ship came in... my ship came in (Jesus)
Ship came in... you know that my ship it came in
Ship came in... my ship came in (Jesus)
Woh oh

Lyrics:

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found (well, you know I was found)
Was blind, but now I see

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we first begun

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound

Open Mind, Open Bible

Words and music: Jeff Percival 1993 Kevin Percival
Lead: Russ Wooten

Lyrics:

I know a man who studies all that he can
You know he knows it all backwards and forwards
If you don't understand any part of the pan
He can tell you what the doctor has ordered
And there's no chance in heaven he could ever be wrong
As he clarifies the grand design
But beware of the leaven of those who have perfected
How to read between Biblical lines

Chorus 1:
Open mind, open Bible
In our aged, in our youth
Open mind, open Bible
Open pages of God's own truth

I know a lady whose faith is still a baby
She's a hug with a heart of gold
And it sounds a little crazy, but she gets a little lazy
When it comes to matters of the soul
And she knows that His grace will cover all her mistakes
But she's absent when the saints assemble
I know she believes, but she better believe
That the devils believe and tremble

Repeat Chorus 1

I see some people standin' under a steeple
In the shadow of the rugged cross
You can see in their behavior that Jesus is their Savior
But that ain't where the story stops
And they all know that they can never know it all
But that ain't gonna keep 'em from tryin'
And just like the Bereans, daily searchin' and seein'
How the Lord can change an open mind

Repeat Chorus

Chorus 2:
Mind, open Bible
From the start, from our youth
Open mind, open Bible
Open heart of God's own truth

Scriptural Reference:

"Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures."  Luke 24:45

Peace Be Still

Words: Kevin Percival 1999 Kevin Percival
Music: Kevin Percival and Bob Allsup 1999 Kevin Percival
Lead: Russ Wooten

Lyrics:

Why does He just lie there
Sleepin' like a stone?
Don't He feel the waves a churnin'
Hear the gale winds blow?
Don't He hear us shoutin'
Cursin' at the storm?
Don't He sense there's bad a comin'
Just can't take no more

Chorus 1:
Peace! Be still!
Peace! Be still!
Peace! Be still!
Oh peace! Be still!

Time to start demandin'
Time to grab an oar
Don't he know we're all a dyin'
Far from any shore?
Is this the Messiah
Calling on the waves?
Who is this that winds obey Him
As I hear Him say...

Repeat Chorus 1

In this world of doubt and fear
Jesus whispers in your ear... in your ear

Repeat Chorus 1 and Verse 1 (together)

Repeat Chorus 1 and Verse 2 (together)

Chorus 2:
Peace (Be Still)! Be still! (Peace, Be Still)
Oh Peace (Be Still)! Be still! (Peace, Be Still)
Peace (Be Still)! Be still! (Peace, Be Still)
Oh peace (Be Still)! Be still!

Repeat Chorus

Oh peace!

Lead: Gary Ferguson

Lyrics:

1...2...3...4...

Gather 'round people listen to a song
About a missionary man from old San Juan
He love to sing and tell the story of Jesus

With his boat he sail cross Caribbean seas
Just a little man climbin' cocunut trees
He'd do anything to tell the story of Jesus

Chorus 1:
He's singin', "La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Do you know my Jesus?
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

He's singin', "La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Come and find rest in Him
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Everybody love Him"

Everybody love Him now man

Well, he carries his Bible everywhere, everyday
Even sailing across old San Juan Bay
Nothing can stop him when he's tellin' the story of Jesus

Well, he tells the good news all across the land
As he's praisin' the Lord to a samba band
And the people they stop to hear the story of Jesus

Chorus 2:
He's singin', "La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Do you know my Jesus? (He ask you, "Do you know Jesus, man?")
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Will you come to meet Him?" ("He invites you to His house, man, for a potluck.  Come meet Him")
He's singin', "La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Come and find rest in Him ("He like a little man, He could even sleep in a coconut tree")
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Everybody love Him ("Why, because He first love you")"

Jesus loves the man who travels on his way
To bring the good news and to sing His praise
With his whole heart does the best he can
Keepona' preachin' Missionary Man

Chorus 2:
He's singin', "La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Do you know my Jesus? (Do you know, do you know, do you know Him?)
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Will you come to meet Him?" (Come and find rest in His love)
He's singin', "La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Come and find rest in Him (Do you love, do you love, do you love Him)
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Everybody love Him (Everybody love Him)"

"La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Do you know my Jesus?"

1...2...3...4...

His People

Lyrics:

The people are calling to the Great I Am
His people are yearning for the works of His mighty hand
Anticipating, patiently waiting
For the Spirit to move across the land

His people are kneeling; they are on their knees in prayer
His people are bringing their each and every care
In prayer believing, His grace receiving
And the Spirit we know is always there

Chorus:
We know, oh yes, we know
The Spirit is moving across the land
We bow, oh yes, we bow
Before the works of the Master's mighty hand

And we will praise Him, redeemed we raise Him
So that others may see His awesome might
