Born of God

Words and music: B. & W. Collins and J. Bagwell
Lead: Allen Coker

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Everybody born of God overcomes the world
Everybody born of God overcomes the world (Born of God overcomes the world)
Everybody born of God overcomes the world (Born of God overcomes the world) (Born of God overcomes the world)
Everybody born of God overcomes the world (Born of God overcomes the world) (Born of God overcomes the world) (Faith is the victory)
Everybody born of God overcomes the world (Born of God overcomes the world) (Born of God overcomes the world) (Faith is the victory)

(You gotta have) Faith to walk on water, faith to light your way
Faith to guide your footsteps each and every day
Faith that can move mountains and cast them in the sea
Faith in the Father, 'cause faith's the victory

Repeat Chorus

This is love for the Father
This is love for the Son
That we keep His commandments
And He will give us peace

Repeat Chorus

I've got your attention, hear the words I say
Let's walk this road together, there's no other way
Some laugh about your faith, fools deny Him so
Lose your life in Jesus, let the Spirit flow

Repeat Chorus and fade

"For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith" 1 John 5:4

To show us (To show us) the victory's won (Victory's won)

Prisoner of God

Words and Music: J. Bagwell
Lead: Allen Coker

Lyrics:

I belong to Him (Him, Him, Him)

Chorus:
I'm a prisoner of God
Bound by choice and not by chains
The day I heard His voice
Was the day my life began
He took away my sin, my sorrow, and my burden
I'm a prisoner of God
I belong to Him

Sometimes my feet get weary, sometimes the path gets rough (My feet get weary, the path is rough)
God's made it clear to me that His love is enough (God's made it clear, love is enough)
He came into my broken heart, I'll never be the same (Into my heart, I'm not the same)
I'll follow after Him, I'll gladly wear His name (I'll follow Him, I'll gladly wear His name)

Repeat Chorus

As I look back on my life, I see what He's done (As I look back, see what He's done)
The time He saved myself and the victories He's won (He's saved my soul, the victories won)
Grace the burden for my sin, love my prison cell (Grace for my sin, His love my cell)
He opened up this heart of mine, He saved my soul from hell (He opened my heart, He saved my soul from hell)

Repeat Chorus

I'd walked in darkness for so long
My light was growing dim
Whether I live or die
It doesn't matter, I belong to Him

Repeat Chorus (x2)

I belong to Him
I belong to Him (Him, Him, Him, Him)

Scriptural Reference:

"So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God" 2 Timothy 1:18

Truly, Madly, Deeply

Words and music:
Lead: Jon Mark Smith

Lyrics:

You are my faith, You are my life, You're my eternity
You are my hope, You are my love, You're everything that I need
I love You more with every breath, truly, madly, deeply
I will be strong, I will be faithful 'cause You've given me
A new beginning, a reason for living, a deeper meaning, yeah

Chorus:
I want to stand with You on a mountain
I want to walk with You on the sea
I want to live with You forever
After Your Son comes back for me

And when the stars are shining brightly in the velvet sky
I'll say a prayer, send it to heaven, 'cause my heart wants to cry
The tears of joy for all the pleasure and the certainty
I'll be surrounded by the comfort and protection of
The Spirit's power, in lonely hours, when fears devour me

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Scriptural Reference:

"After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever." 1 Thessalonians 1:17

Follow

Words and music:
Lead: Allen Coker

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Follow me, follow me
My disciple ever be
Follow me, follow me
My disciple you will ever be

Jesus was walkin down by the sea
When He saw these fishers, and said "Come follow me"
Well there was Peter, and there was James and John
And there was Andrew, they were all fishermen's sons
Then right there they dropped their nets
Never again to look back

Repeat Chorus

Jesus was walkin through the marketplace
When He looked up and saw Matthew's face
He was the tax man, and he was hated by all
But then he stood up, and he heeded the call
He left that table standing there
Never again to look back

Repeat Chorus

(Follow me, follow me)
(Follow me, follow me) Jesus is livin, and He's callin for you
(Follow me, follow me) So listen to Him, be born and made anew
(Follow me, follow me) He is comin, again in clouds one day
(Follow me, follow me) So follow Jesus, and His will obey
(Follow me) Begin new life, be born again
(Follow me, follow me) Don't look back, don't look back

Repeat Chorus

Scriptural Reference:

As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 'Come, follow me,' Jesus said, 'and I will make you fishers of men.' At once they left their nets and followed him. Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him." Matthew 4:18-22
"As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector's booth. "Follow me," he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him." Matthew 9:9
