All That I Need

Verse 1
When I look around at all this world offers,
I begin to crave the things that I see.
I must keep my eyes on Jesus my Savior.
He has promised Heavenly treasure to me.

Chorus
All that I need is my faith in Jesus.
All that I need is my home above.
All that I need is my Father's Mercy.
All that I need is my Savior's love.

Verse 2
All the pretty toys shine brightly around me.
All the pretty houses glisten and gleam.
Riches seem to offer peace and contentment.
That is just a lie, it's only a dream.

Without Him

Verse 1
Without Him I could do nothing
Without Him I'd surely fail
Without Him I would be drifting
Like a ship without a sail

Chorus
Oh Jesus, oh Jesus
Do you know Him today
Please don't turn Him away
Oh Jesus, my Jesus
Without Him how lost I would be
Without Him how lost I would be

Verse 2
Without Him I would be dying
Without Him I'd be enslaved
Without Him life would be worthless
But with Jesus thank God I'm saved

Higher Ground

Verse 1
I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining every day;
Still praying as I onward bound,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

Chorus
Lord, lift me up, and let me stand
By faith on Canaan’s tableland;
A higher plane than I have found,
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.

Verse 2
My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell where these abound,
My prayer, my aim, is higher ground.

Verse 3
I want to live above the world,
Though Satan’s darts at me are hurled;
For faith has caught the joyful sound,
The song of saints on higher ground.

Verse 4
I want to scale the utmost height
And catch a gleam of glory bright;
But still I’ll pray till rest I’ve found,
“Lord, lead me on to higher ground.”

We Will Stand Our Ground

Verse 1
There are forces in the world today
Who oppose our Christian faith.
They attempt to destroy everything that's holy
And control what preachers say.
But God still has a few good men
Who won't bend, won't bow, or burn
They will fight to the end
To defend that faith
Until the day that the whole world learns

Chorus
There are things we won't give over.
There are things worth fightin' for.
The book and the blood and the rugged cross
One faith, one way, one Lord.
When the world, and the flesh, and the devil press on,
And try to tear our strongholds down,
We will stand our ground.

Verse 2
Despite what the non-believers say,
Our God has never changed.
His word still means everything it says,
It is now and forever the same.
The world may think they have won this fight,
But there are some that can still be found.
Who will never give in, and will never give up,
We will stand our ground.

Something For Thee

Verse 1
Savior, Thy dying love
Thou gavest me,
Nor should I aught with-hold,
Dear Lord, from Thee:
In love my soul would bow,
My heart fulfill its vow,
Some off'ring bring Thee now,
Something for Thee.

Verse 2
O'er the blest mercy-seat
Pleading for me,
Upward in faith I look,
Jesus, to Thee:
Help me the cross to bear,
Thy wondrous love declare,
Some song to raise, or prayer,
Something for Thee.

Verse 3
Give me a faithful heart
Guided by Thee,
That each departing day
Henceforth may see
Some work of love begun,
Some deed of kindness done,
Some wand'rer sought and won,
Something for Thee.

Verse 4
All that I am and have,
Thy gifts so free,
Ever in joy or grief,
My Lord, for Thee:
And when Thy face I see,
My ransomed soul shall be,
Thro' all eternity,
Offered for Thee.

My Song

Verse 1
Thou, Whom seraphs joy in praising,
Thou, Whom angel hosts adore.
Can my stamm'ring tongue be silent
When I owe Thee so much more.

Chorus
So my song must swell the chorus
While the angels' praises ring.
I, a sinner saved and pardoned,
Have more cause than they to sing.

All undone by sin and evil,
Child of condemnation I,
Yet Thou laid aside Thy glory
And for me came down to die.

Verse 3
Heir of heaven Thou hast made me,
Bought me with Thy precious blood,
Took the form of man upon Thee
That I might be child of God.

Worthy of Praise

I will lift up my voice to the King.
He brought me out of the pit of despair
And taught my heart to sing.

Worthy of all my praise,
You are worthy of all my praise.
I bow at Your throne
And I worship You alone.
Lord, You are worthy, worthy of praise.

My lips sing His praise;

His mercy and grace forever endure;
His arms draw me closer each day.

A Home is God-Made

Chorus
A home, is God-made,
With foundation laid
By His own hand;
It's like a little bit of heaven
For that is His plan.

There is no place like home,
So the song said long ago;
When Christ is the Head of that home,
Peace and love will overflow.

Everyone will agree
That the home has changed today
But if it's a Christian home,
It will never pass away.

Peace, Be Still

Verse 1
Their ship was tossed about
As the waves rolled high;
Their faith gave way to doubt
As they feared for their lives.
They called upon the Master
Who said unto the sea,
"Peace, be still,"
And the wind ceased!

Chorus
He said "Peace, be still,"
And the wind and sea obeyed;
When He spoke, the storm was silent,
For He calmed the angry waves.
There's no need to fear
When Jesus is on board,
The Captain of my vessel
Is the Lord.

Verse 2
When storm clouds come your way,
And the waves roll high;
Just look to Him in faith;
He will answer your cry,
Your prayer to Him in silence
Will bring down Heaven's voice,
"Peace, be still,"
Trust in the Lord.

I Can Tell The World

Verse 1
I can tell the world
My Jesus has saved me
By His power He changed me,
And now I'm whole;
Marvelous grace
And mercy that sought me,
With His love He bought me,
And saved my soul.

Chorus
Wonderful love,
Forever I'll tell it;
In Heav'n above
I'll praise His name
In this world below
I'll sing of the glory;
I'll tell the sweet story
How He made me His own.

Verse 2
I can tell the world
Sweet peace He has given,
And His love He has proven
On Calvary
Now I sing the song
Of "Amazing Grace"
How He took my place
And set me free.

Verse 3
I can tell the world
I'm going up yonder,
No longer to wander
In sin and alone.
Glorious to know
Because of my Savior
And His wonderful favor,
Heav'n is my home.

Called To Make The Difference

Verse 1
Everywhere you turn, men are ruining their lives.
They're searching for some happiness to fill their empty eyes.
Everyone needs a witness who will stand up unashamed.
Who will dare to make the difference?
Who will go in Jesus name?

Chorus
I am called to make the difference in a world that needs to change;
I'm called to be a spokesman for the Name above all names.
Called to bear the cross of Christ, called to give Him all my life.
I will give my world a chance, and I will make,
Yes, I will make the difference.

Verse 2
I am not my own; I belong to Jesus Christ,
And I have found His peace, and joy has filled my empty life.
And now He calls, yes, He calls me gently to surrender all I am,
To go and make the difference, to take a loving stand!

I Stand Redeemed

Verse 1
When I think of all my faults and my failures
When I consider all the times I've let God down
I am humbled at the grace He has extended
I'm amazed at the mercy I have found
I could never earn His love on my own
Yet every time I come before His throne

Chorus
I stand redeemed by the blood of the Lamb
I stand redeemed before the great I Am
When He looks at me He sees the nailed scarred Hands
That bought my liberty: I stand redeemed

Verse 2
Even at my best I am unworthy
I have nothing precious I can give
A broken heart is all I have to offer
And yet it is a priceless gift to Him
The bitter mark of sin will never fade away
But I can come before Him unashamed

To Rescue a Sinner Like Me

Verse 1
I don't understand how a God so divine
Could lower Himself to a life such as mine
And consider me worth every minute of time
To rescue a sinner like me

When I think of my savior alone on the cross
I know without him
That my life would be lost
If he had not been willing to suffer the cost
To rescue a sinner like me

Chorus
To rescue a sinner like me, Lord
To rescue a sinner like me
He abandoned his throne and his kingdom above
To rescue a sinner like me

Verse 2
My mind is so limited that I cannot see
The reason he died and arose just for me
So unworthy was I, yet he gave willingly
To rescue a sinner like me

Bridge
To rescue a sinner as worthless as I
Yet he gave me a reason to sing
It's so hard to believe but it happened to me
Hallelujah to Jesus my king
My king

Come and Dine

Verse 1
Jesus has a table spread
Where the saints of God are fed,
He invites His chosen people, “Come and dine”;
With His manna He doth feed
And supplies our every need:
Oh, ’tis sweet to sup with Jesus all the time!

Chorus
“Come and dine,” the Master calleth, “Come and dine”;
You may feast at Jesus’ table all the time;
He Who fed the multitude, turned the water into wine,
To the hungry calleth now, “Come and dine.”

Verse 2
The disciples came to land,
Thus obeying Christ’s command,
For the Master called unto them, “Come and dine”;
There they found their heart’s desire,
Bread and fish upon the fire;
Thus He satisfies the hungry every time.

Verse 3
Soon the Lamb will take His bride
To be ever at His side,
All the host of heaven will assembled be;
Oh, ’twill be a glorious sight,
All the saints in spotless white;
And with Jesus they will feast eternally.

Beyond the Cross

Verse 1
Needing strength for my journey, I knelt at the cross
Where Jesus once died for me
And I asked, “Is this the place where hope abides?”
And this He said to me:

Chorus
“Beyond the Cross is a tomb that is empty
You won’t find Me there anymore
And beyond the tomb is life ever-lasting
And hope forever more.”

Verse 2
Then I sought reassurance and I went to the tomb
To the place where His body once laid
And I cried, “Lord, help me see. Is there hope here for me?”
And this I heard Him say:

Watch in the Garden With Jesus

Verse 1
If mist and darkness becloud life's day,
Watch in the garden with Him;
For gloom and shadow will flee away,
Watch in the garden with Him.

Chorus
Watch for an hour with Jesus,
Watch in the garden with Him;
Rich blessings He'll share,
He'll banish your care;
Watch in the garden with Jesus.

Verse 2
If you are troubled with doubt and fear,
Watch in the garden with Him;
For clouds will rift and the sky will clear,
Watch in the garden with Him.

Verse 3
If you are burdened with grief and pain,
Watch in the garden with Him;
For thro' your tears you shall smile again,
Watch in the garden with Him.

Verse 4
Tho' cold and dark be Gethsemane,
Watch in the garden with Him;
The sun will shine out from Calvary,
Watch in the garden with Him.

I Have Been Blessed

Verse 1
When He moves among us all that He does
All of His mercy and all of His love
And the pen of the writer could write everyday
Even this world could never contain
How I've been blessed

The warmth in winter the flowers in spring
The laughter in summer and the changing of leaves
The food on my table a good place to sleep
Clothes on my back and shoes on my feet
I have been blessed

Chorus
I have been blessed God's so good to me
Precious are His thoughts of you and me
No way I could count them there's not enough time
So I'll just thank Him for being so kind
God has been good so good
I have been blessed

Verse 2
Arms that will raise a voice that can talk
Hands that can touch and legs that can walk
Ears that can listen eyes that can see
Oh I've got to praise Him as long as I breathe
I have been blessed

A father and mother who nurtured and raised
A brother and sister memories made
Our pastor to lead us the altar to pray
Stripes that can heal the blood that can save
I have been blessed

Verse 3
We live in a country the greatest on earth
Our flag stands for freedom and what it is worth
She stands in the harbor Miss Liberty calls
All have gave some but some have gave all
For me to be blessed

He's my shoulder to lean on when I am down
The rock where He leads me when I'm overwhelmed
The place where He hides me under His wings
He's not just a song He's the reason I sing
I have been blessed

Jesus Saves

Verse 1
The church has been silent
While the world raised its voice
In loud and angry tones they took the lead
But all across Creation
There’s a rumbling in the hills
As the chosen ones of God stand up
And make His message known

Chorus
I’m gonna shout it from the housetops
Proclaim it from the mountaintops
Tell the world around me Jesus saves
I have made my choice
I’m gonna make a joyful noise
The world will hear my voice, Jesus saves

Verse 2
The rocks and hills were ready
To proclaim, “The Savior’s mine,”
But the Spirit of the Lord said they should wait
You see, God knew His children
Were ready to march on and proclaim His word
Throughout the land and seal the devil’s fate

Verse 3
But the world still tell us daily
That God is not alive
And Salvation’s plan is just a fairy tale
But their lies don’t change the truth
That Jesus died for you
And the Word says His returning
Can happen any day

Tag
We have heard the joyful sound
Jesus saves, Jesus saves
Spread the tidings all around
Jesus saves, Jesus saves

The Hands of the Savior

Verse 1
I vision the hands of the Savior,
By them were the multitudes fed;
I see them outstretched to the children,
In blessing they laid on each head.

Chorus
Wonderful hand, hands of the Savior,
Nailed for thy sake to the tree;
Hands that were used in service for others,
Hands that will ever lead thee.

Verse 2
In pity they lifted the fallen,
By them were the suffering healed;
They served at the tasks that were humble,
The sweetness of labor revealed.

Verse 3
They lead now the way to that City,
"Whose Builder and Maker is God;"
They'll never unclasp till we enter,
Thro' highways His footsteps have trod.
