He Has Overcome

He Has Overcome

Sometimes I feel alone on this journey
Sometimes it's hard to lift up my head
But the struggles can turn into times of learning
I recall the words of Jesus when He said

In the world you will face
Tribulation a world of hate
But be of good cheer
For I have overcome the world.

Many times I try on my own
Forgetting first to bow down my head
Help me daily to come before your throne
Shape my will Lord, it's on you I depend

In the world I will face
Tribulation a world of hate
But I will be of good cheer
For you have overcome

The battle is already won
There's victory through God's only son
No longer bound by sin's control
In Jesus Christ we are made whole

Our trials they are nothing new
To Him because He faced them too
Be still and know that He is God
The work is done

Learn from Him and you will find
Rest in your souls and peace of mind
Let Jesus have your every care
For He has
Yes, He has
Overcome the world(x3)

I Thank You / Thank You

Thank You

For all that You've done, I will thank You
For all that You're going to do
For all that You've promised and all that You are
Is all that has carried me through
Jesus, I thank You.

And I thank You
Thank You Lord
And I thank You
Thank You Lord

Thank You for loving and setting me free.
Thank You for giving Your life just for me.
How I thank You
Jesus, I thank You
I gratefully thank You
And I thank You

All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name

All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name

All hail the power of Jesus' name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown him Lord of all.  
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown him Lord of all.

Ye chosen seed of Israel's race,
Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail him who saves you by his grace,
And crown him Lord of all.
Hail him who saves you by his grace,
And crown him Lord of all.

Sinners, whose love can ne'er forget
The wormwood and the gall,
Go spread your trophies at his feet,
And crown him Lord of all.
Go spread your trophies at his feet,
And crown him Lord of all.

Let every kindred, every tribe
On this terrestrial ball,
To him all majesty ascribe,
And crown him Lord of all.
To him all majesty ascribe,
And crown him Lord of all.

Crown him, ye martyrs of your God,
Who from his altar call;
Extol the Stem of Jesse's Rod,
And crown him Lord of all.
Extol the Stem of Jesse's Rod,
And crown him Lord of all.

O that with yonder sacred throng
We at his feet may fall!
We'll join the everlasting song,
And crown him Lord of all.
We'll join the everlasting song,
And crown him Lord of all. 

You Abide With Me / You Abide

You Abide With Me

Verse 1
I once believed it was up to me to make it on my own.
Thro’ endless days I went my way and thought I was walking all alone.
But now I see that you were always by my side;
Through the joy and pain, through the seasons of my life.

Chorus
If I cry, you weep.
When I walk, you lead!
If I stumble you ease my fall.
When I sing you are my song.
Every victory,
Every crushing defeat;
Through it all,
Lord, you abide with me.

Verse 2
I know your love will lift me up when I’m too weak to stand.
I see your face, I feel your grace as we walk together hand in hand.
Your presence glows like the early morning dawn;
Light that gives my soul lasting strength to carry on

Just a Little While

Just a Little While

Soon this life will all be over,
And our pilgrimage will end.
Soon we'll take our heav’nly journey,
Be at home again with friends
Heaven's gates are standing open
Waiting for our entrance there
Some sweet day we're going over
All the beauties there to share.

Just a little while to stay here
Just a little while to wait
Just a little while to labor
In the path that’s always straight
Just a little more of trouble
In this low and sinful state
Then we’ll enter Heaven’s portals,
Sweeping thru the pearly gates.

Verse 2
Soon we’ll see the light of morning
Then the new day will begin
Soon we’ll hear the Father calling,
“Come my children, enter in.”
Soon we’ll hear the choir of angels
Singing out the vict’ry song,
All our troubles will be ended
And we’ll enter heaven’s throng

(Chorus)

Verse 3
Soon we’ll meet again our loved ones
And we’ll take them by the hand,
Soon we’ll press them to our bosom
Over in the promised land;
Then we’ll be at home forever,
Thru-out all eternity,
What a blessed, blessed morning
That eternal morn shall be.

(Chorus)

Is Anything Too Hard for God

Is Anything Too Hard for God

Verse 1
It's out of your hands, you've done all you can do
You've given God the problem, it's no longer up to you
You've prayed the prayer of faith, you're standing on God's truth
While you're waiting on the answer, He has a question for you

Chorus
Is anything too hard for God?
Who's got a problem beyond His power to solve?
Are there situations He's not the Master of?
Is anything too hard for God?

Verse 2
Only believe, trust His word, you'll see
His plans are now unfolding, performing perfectly
It's clear how much He loves you, just look at all He's done
For all your questions, there's really only one

(Chorus)

Tag
Are there situations He's not the Master of?
Is anything too hard for God?

Let There Be Praise

(Chorus)
Let there be praise
Let there be joy in our hearts

Just One More Soul

Just One More Soul

Verse 1
The preachers are weary
The singers are tired
The church as we know it
Is losing its fire
Some are discouraged from bearing the load
But we must determine to keep pressing on

chorus
'Cause if just one more soul
Were to walk down the aisle
It would be worth every struggle
It would be worth every mile
A lifetime of labor is still worth it all
If it rescues just one more soul

Verse 2
So preachers, keep preachin'
And singers, go sing
Laymen, keep sharing
That Jesus is King
The angels have gathered, they're surrounding the throne
And they'll start rejoicing for just one more soul

How Could I Not Say Thank You / I'll Say Thanks

I'll Say Thanks


Verse 1
Ungrateful am I for so many things
Like the Father's tender mercies every day
And though I owe my life
To the cross where Jesus died
I often fail to stop and give Him thanks

Chorus
How could I look upon the cross
And not say "Thank you?"
How could I hear His mother cry
And not be ashamed?
How could I see His bleeding hands,
And not feel responsible?
How could I look upon the cross,
And not say "Thanks?"

Verse 2
He was beaten beyond recognition
Then a crown of thorns was pressed into His brow
His back was torn apart
To pay for all the crimes I'd done
So you'd think I'd take the time to humbly bow


3rd Chorus
So I will look upon the cross
And I'll say "Thank you."
I will magnify the power of your name
I will take a stand for Christ,
For He is the Lord of all
I will look upon the cross
And I'll say, "Thank you, Lord,
"For saving my soul."
I will look upon the cross
And I'll say "Thanks."

Calvary Answers For Me

Calvary Answers For Me

Verse 1
Satan just cowers,
To think of the power he lost,
When the Cross had its day,
Gone are the mornings,
When fear without warning,
Would win and again have its way,
Now when Satan reminds me of things I regret,
I bring up Calvary lest he forgets

Chorus
High on the mountain of sorrow and shame,
Grace signed my pardon as Christ took the blame,
When I'm called to answer for my history,
Calvary answers for me, Calvary answers for me

Verse 2
I am now under,
The beautiful wonder of grace,
That erased all my past,
I feel the heartbeat of mercy inside me,
And now I have found joy at last,
I live in freedom that chains cannot bind,
And I won't look back at what I've left behind

I Go to the Rock of Ages

I Go to the Rock of Ages

Verse 1
When the billows are raging all around my soul,
When the storms of confusion around me roll,
There's a place that I go to and sweet comfort I receive;
I go to the Rock of Ages for my every need.

Chorus
I go to the Rock of Ages,
I go to the Rock of Ages for my every need!
When I'm discouraged, when I am sad,
I go the the Rock, He makes me glad!
I go to the Rock of Ages for my every need.

Verse 2
He's the Rock that I hide in, my shelter in the night.
He's the Rock that I stand on for the right.
In this Rock there is honey where my hungry soul can feed:
I go to the Rock of Ages for my every need.

He's Still the Master of the Sea

Master Of The Sea

Verse 1
One night upon the sea.
A ship was tossing to and fro.
Breakers dashed on every hand.
Angry winds around did blow.
All on board were filled with fright.
As the mighty billows rolled.
Then they called upon the One.
Who the winds and waves controlled.

Chorus
When He reaches out His hand.
Billows cease at His command.
Winds and waves obey His will
When He says to them be still.
What man is this they all did say.
They did say.
That the winds and sea obey.
Sea obey.
He's the one who sails with me.
Oh He's still the Master of the sea.


Verse 2
Though the storms of life may rage.
Mighty billows round you roll.
Then He can calm lifes troubled sea.
As he did in days of old.
And as upon lifes sea you sail.
Why don't you trust in Him who's
never ever failed.
I'm so glad he sails with me.
Oh He's still the Master Of The Sea

Stand Still

Stand Still and Let God Move

Verse 1
The Father has a plan. Though it's hard to see it now
You feel you're walking all alone. But He is there no doubt
When the storm around you rages, And you're tossed to and fro
When you're faced with life's decisions, Not sure which way to go

Chorus
Stand still and let God move,
Standing still is hard to do
When you f eel you have reached the end,
He'll make a way for you
Stand still and let God move

Verse 2
When the enemy surrounds you, And the walls are closing in
When the tide is swiftly rising, And you wonder where He's been
Friend, there never was a moment, That His arms weren't reaching out
You can rest assured and be secure, God is moving right now

Tag
When you feel you have reached the end, He'll make a way for you
Stand still and let God move
The answer will come, But only in His time

He Is Mine

Verse 1
Long before the fall of man God designed a master plan,
He exchanged the sinner for the sinless One;
Jesus left His throne on high, came to earth to bleed and die,
He said, "Father, not My will, but Thine be done."

Chorus
He is Mine, (He is mine), He is Mine, (He is mine)
I am blessed beyond all measure, He is mine!
I have pardon full and free through the blood He shed for me
Safe forever I shall be, He is mine.

Verse 2
Through God's mercy and His grace He prepares for us a place,
Words cannot describe the matchless beauty there;
We will praise this perfect Lamb, King of kings, the great I AM,
He has made the joys of Heaven ours to share.

A Shelter in the Storm \ I Have a Shelter

I Have a Shelter

VERSE 1
I have a shelter in the storm
When troubles pour upon me
Though fears are rising like a flood
My soul can rest securely
O Jesus, I will hide in You
My place of peace and solace
No trial is deeper than Your love
That comforts all my sorrows

VERSE 2
I have a shelter in the storm
When all my sins accuse me
Though justice charges me with guilt
Your grace will not refuse me
O Jesus, I will hide in You
Who bore my condemnation
I find my refuge in Your wounds
For there I find salvation

VERSE 3
I have a shelter in the storm
When constant winds would break me
For in my weakness, I have learned
Your strength will not forsake me
O Jesus, I will hide in You
The One who bears my burdens
With faithful hands that cannot fail
You’ll bring me home to heaven

When the Lamb Becomes the Light

When the Lamb Becomes the Light Lyrics

Verse 1
The Spirit showed to John
A wondrous vision
From heaven's highest realm
A holy city did descend
With it crystal river, gates of pearl
And great celestial chambers
John saw it,
But could scarcely comprehend

Verse 2
This place of perfect peace
That’s everlasting
Where death is gone forever
And where no one will grow old
And the sun is overshadowed
By the Lamb in all His glory
Oh what a vision we too will behold!

Chorus
When the Lamb becomes the Light
And the faith that we’ve held onto
Becomes sight
There will be no weeping
No more sorrow, no more night
When the Lamb becomes the Light

Verse 3
At times our eyes are filled
With tears of sadness
Yet we hold to the promise that
These tears will pass away
And though the world around us
Now is filled with pain and suffering
We await that bright and glorious day


What a Friend We Have in Jesus

What a Friend We Have in Jesus Lyrics

Verse 1
What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

Verse 2
Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged—
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful,
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Verse 3
Are we weak and heavy-laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge—
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
Thou wilt find a solace there.

Verse 4
Blessed Savior, Thou hast promised
Thou wilt all our burdens bear;
May we ever, Lord, be bringing
All to Thee in earnest prayer.
Soon in glory bright, unclouded,
There will be no need for prayer—
Rapture, praise, and endless worship
Will be our sweet portion there.

Joseph M. Scriven

O Glorious Love

Oh, Glorious Love of Christ

Verse 1
In my darkness Jesus found me;
Touched my eyes and made me see;
Broke sin’s chains that long had bound me;
Gave me life and liberty!

CHORUS
Oh, glorious love of Christ my Lord divine,
That made Him stoop to save a soul like mine.
Through all my days, and then in heaven above,
My song will silence never,
I'll worship Him forever,
And praise Him for His glorious love.

Verse 2
Oh, amazing truth to ponder;
He whom angel hosts attend,
Lord of Heaven, God’s Son, what wonder;
He became the sinner’s friend!


John W Peterson
