Press On (Heaven's Not So Far Away)

Seems like every other day
We see someone slip away
From the paths of righteousness and truth
But we must keep pressing on
Till the fight down here is won
There's a crown of life awaiting you!

Chorus:
Press on! Heaven's not so far away
Press on! To the everlasting land of endless day
Press on! Through the power of God's amazing grace.
The time is drawing nigh
To bid this world goodbye.
Very soon we'll see our Saviour face to face.

There are times I'm feeling down
Seems I'm often losing ground
In the battle of life from day to day
But my loved ones who have died
Echo hope from the other side
And it seems I can almost hear them say:

A Few Good Men

What this dying world could use is a willing Man of God
Who dares to go against the grain and works without applause;
A man who'll raise the shield of faith, protecting what is pure;
Whose love is tough and gentle; a man whose word is sure.

Verse 2:
God doesn't need an orator who knows just what to say;
He doesn't need authorities to reason Him away;
He doesn't need an army to guarantee a win;
He just needs a few good men.

Chorus:
Men full of compassion, who laugh and love and cry-
Men who'll face eternity and aren't afraid to die-
Men who'll fight for freedom and honor once again-
He just needs a few good men.

Verse 3:
He calls the broken derelict whose life has been renewed;
He calls the one who has the strength to stand up for the Truth.
Enlistment lines are open and He wants you to come in-
He just needs a few good men.

Calvary Calls

I could squander my existence-
Live my life in search of ease,
Give all my days to gaining man's applause,
Thinking only of myself and all that pleases me.
But Calvary calls.

Chorus:
Calvary calls me to surrender,
Calvary calls me to obey;
Into a dying world it calls me to be a light along the way.
For the cross demands allegiance
So I'll give nothing less than all;
And I'll answer, "Here am I."
When Calvary calls.

In the mumbling of a stranger, in the clamor of a crowd
I can hear the constant cry above it all;
Sometimes it's just a whisper-
Sometimes it seems so loud,
When Calvary calls. Calvary calls.

If I see a brother broken by defeat and left to die,
And no one comes to help him when he falls.
Let me be the arms of mercy reaching out in Jesus' name
When Calvary calls. Calvary calls.


All Your Anxiety

Is there a heart o’erbound by sorrow?
Is there a life weighed down by care?
Come to the cross, each burden bearing;
All your anxiety—leave it there.

Chorus:
All your anxiety, all your care,
Bring to the mercy seat, leave it there,
Never a burden He cannot bear,
Never a friend like Jesus!

No other friend so swift to help you,
No other friend so quick to hear,
No other place to leave your burden,
No other one to hear your prayer.

Come then at once; delay no longer!
Heed His entreaty kind and sweet,
You need not fear a disappointment;
You shall find peace at the mercy seat.

Salvation Belongs To Our God

Salvation belongs to our God
Who sits upon the throne
And unto the Lamb
Be praise and glory, wisdom and thanks
Honor, and power, and strength

Be to our God forever and ever
Be to our God forever and ever
Be to our God forever and ever
Amen!

We the redeemed shall be strong
In purpose and unity
Declaring aloud
Be praise and glory, wisdom and thanks
Honor, and power, and strength!

Be to our God forever and ever
Be to our God forever and ever
Be to our God forever and ever
Amen!

It Was For Me

Why leave a Heav'nly mansion?
Why choose a simple stall?
Why wander poor and homeless,
The King and Lord of all?
Why heal a lonely beggar?
Why cause the blind to see?
The Light of all creation,
Shining there for me.

It was for me He cried, for me He died,
For me He shed His blood upon the tree.
It was for me He came, for me His shame;
For me, oh, praise His name, it was for me.

Why stay in Olive's garden?
Why spend the night in prayer?
Why suffer such betrayal,
In anguish kneeling there?
Why leave His mother crying?
Why set Barabbas free?
The spotless Lamb of Heaven
Given there for me.


Why climb that dreadful mountain?
Why suffer agony?
Why give His blood a fountain spilled and broken, flowing free?
Why He walked the road to Calv'ry, gave His life so willingly,
Broken there, the Rose of Sharon died for me.


The King Who came from Heaven,
To the cry, "There is no room,"
Now must lay His weary body
In a cold and borrowed tomb.
But the grave it could not hold Him;
Death lost its victory.
The risen Lord of glory is living now for me!

When God is Near

Make me know your presence Lord, the King of Glory here.
You know each thought and action, hope, anxiety and fear.
How can I hide from Thee?  Can darkness hide iniquity?
Oh how can I unfaithful be, when You are very near to me?

When God is near, all the world seems far away.
When God is near, every fear is set aside.
When God is near, how can I stray? How can I falter?
I’ll stay upon the altar, I know my God is near.

Make me know Your presence Lord, when I feel so alone.
You know each trial and testing pain, the hurt that is unknown.
Oh, why can I not see Your hand so firmly guiding me?
Oh how can I untrusting be, when You are very near to me?

When God is near, all the world seems far away.
When God is near, every fear is set aside.
When God is near, how can I stray? How can I falter?
I’ll stay upon the altar, I know my God is near.

Lord of My Heart

Jesus, my heavenly Father,
King of the heavens you are,
Loving and caring, forgiving,
You are the Lord of my heart.

Chorus
Lord of my heart, Savior divine,
You shed your blood, suffered and died;
Giving me life, you gave your all,
Lord of my heart.

Jesus, my wonderful Saviour,
King of all kings from on high,
Lord of all glory forever,
You are the Lord of my heart.

Jesus, my rock of salvation,
My refuge, my fortress, my God,
Hope of the world and all nations,
You are the Lord of my heart.

O Man of Galilee

Saviour of light, I look just now to thee:
Brighten my path, so only shall I see
Thy footprints, Lord, which mark the way for me;
Light of my life, so surely thou wilt be.
O Man of Galilee!

Chorus
O Man of Galilee,
Stay with and strengthen me;
Walk thou through life with me,
O Man of Galilee!


Another touch, I ask another still,
That daily, hourly, I may do thy will;
Healer of wounds and bearer of all pain,
Thy touch, thy power are evermore the same,
O Man of Galilee!


Lord of my life, I dare step out to thee
Who stilled the waves and stayed the tossing sea;
When floods o'erwhelm, my safety thou wilt be;
When nightfall comes, O Lord, abide with me:
O Man of Galilee!

Pilot of souls! I trust Thy guiding hand;
Take Thou the helm, and , at Thy blest command,
I sail straight on, until, the harbor won,
I reach the glory of Thy sweet "Well done!"

Only God Could Love You More

Verse One
I asked the Lord for someone
And I always knew,
That in God's time and in God's way
There would be someone like you.
All my hopes and all my dreams
Were suddenly fulfilled.
It's almost unbelievable
Our love was in His will.

Chorus
Only God could love your more
For He gave me this love I have for you.
What a blessing to know He's your Lord.
For only God could love you more than I do.

Verse Two
I'm tempted to be saying,
That we met by chance,
But God was there at every turn
In every circumstance,
To share this life God gave to me,
Seems such a fearful task
But every moment we have shared,
Is more than I can ask.

God Is My Refuge

Verse 1
When clouds of doubt hover over me
And the storms of life toss me to and fro
There is a place of refuge that I can go.
He’s a shield from every tempest,
He’s an anchor that’s so sure and true
In times like these, it’s good for me to know.

Chorus
God is my refuge,
A strong and mighty tower that I can run to.
God is my refuge,
Without Him, what would I do?

Verse 2
Once I wandered so far from His shelter
And up ahead, I just could not see
The storm clouds so heavy
With rain.
And when the winds blew hard
And the billows did roll in
From the raging sea
Peace came the moment I called on His name!

Chorus

Tag/Ending
God is my refuge,
Without Him, what would I do?
Without Him, what would I do?

America, The Beautiful

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for pilgrim feet,
Whose stern impassion'd stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America! God mend thine ev'ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev'ry gain divine!

O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam,
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
