The Greatest Command

Verse 1
Though I have great knowledge and truth I understand,
Even though the mountains hear my voice and bow to my command,
Though men see my good works and though God sees above,
This will count as nothing without God's work of love.

Chorus
The greatest command of all, the greatest command of all,
The greatest command of all my life is to love You, Lord, love You, Lord.
So increase my love for You, as this one thing I do.
The greatest command in all of my life is to love You, Lord.

Verse 2
Though I make great sacrifice and all men know my name,
Even though I speak to mighty crowds and angels spread my fame,
Though I serve my fellow man and serve my Lord above,
This will count as nothing without God's work of love.

Oh, Worship the King

Verse 1
Oh worship the King, all glorious above,
And gratefully sing His pow'r and His love;
Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days,
Pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.

Verse 2
Oh, tell of His might; oh, sing of His grace,
Whose robe is the light, whose canopy space.
His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form,
And dark is His path on the wings of the storm.

Verse 3
Thy bountiful care what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air, it shines in the light;
It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,
And sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.

Verse 4
Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
In Thee do we trust, nor find Thee to fail;
Thy mercies how tender! how firm to the end!
Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend.

Calvary's Blood

Verse 1
I carried a burden, a staggering weight,
And struggled for freedom but could not escape;
I trembled and cried at the thought of my fate-
What must I do to be saved?
I desp'rately searched for release from my pain
But found that man's wisdom was useless and vain.
Is there not a pow'r that can break ev'ry chain?
What must I do to be saved?

Chorus
Jesus' blood flows from Calvary
Breaking Satan's pow'r, setting captives free.
Greatest gift of the greatest love-
Heaven paid the price with Calvary's blood.
Heaven paid the price with Calvary's blood.

Verse 2
I saw Jesus bleeding; the cross bore His stain;
The men standing by were all mocking His pain.
But then-yes, I heard it- He called out my name:
"Kneel at the cross and be saved."
I fell at the feet of the One hanging there.
"O Savior, forgive me," I cried in despair!
My burden fell off; Jesus answered my prayer.
Kneel at the cross and be saved.

Jesus, Jesus, please control all I do.
When others look at me, let them see Your loving face;
Jesus, Jesus, I give You first place.

Verse 2
Jesus, Jesus, keep my mind fixed on You;
Jesus, Jesus, please make all my thoughts new.
When others look at me, let them know I am Your own;
Jesus, Jesus, I bow at Your throne.

God, Give Us Good Men

Verse 1
God, give us good men,
Men who are great and strong,
Men who for truth and honor's sake
Stand fast and suffer long;
Brave men who work while others sleep,
Men who dare while others flee;
Men who build a nation's pillars deep
And strive to keep men free.

Men who know how to pray,
Men who will worship God alone
And walk with Him each day,
Wise men who know the word of God,
Men who always will do right,
Men who walk in deep humility
And trust in God's great might.

Verse 3
God, give us bold men,
Men who have hearts ablaze,
Men who with broader vision
Seek none but God's own praise;
True men with great integrity,
Men whose hearts the Lord has won,
Men who live in humble gratitude 
For all that God has done.

Verse 4
God, bless our nation;
May she be always strong,
Trusting in truth and honesty,
In right that shuns the wrong.
Keep her from pride and anarchy,
Grant her wisdom from above,
May her people live in liberty
And thank Your for Your love.

I Believe

Lord, forgive my years of sin,
Lost in unbelief.

Oh, I believe. Yes, Lord, I believe.

All my works will not suffice;
Great the debt I owe.

Simply to Your cross I cling.

Oh, I believe. Yes, Lord, I believe.

Lift the Name

Sorrow shrouds His birth.
Christ, the King of Glory bright,
Stoops to come to earth.
Down from honor to disgrace,
Down to take my place, my sinful place.

Shout His praise from sky to sky!
Lift the name of Jesus higher!

Waiting God's command.
Then before redemption's dawn,
Skies explode with song! Explode with song!

Amazing Grace - Frank Garlock

Verse 1
Amazing grace! how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretched soul like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
My eyes were blind, but now I see.

Verse 2
God's grace has taught my heart to fear,
His grace my ev'ry fear relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The very hour that I believed.

Verse 3
Thru many dangers, toils, and snares,
By grace I have already come'
God' grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me safely home.

Verse 4
Where we've been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the noonday sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when the song was first begun.

Thunder like a mighty flood:

Christ redeemed us by His blood."

As He entered heaven's door,
We shall not forget His promise,
"I am with you evermore."

Sing His praises ev'ry day.
Alleluia! Friend of sinners,

Throughout all eternity.

To receive our grateful praise;
Since He is the great Jehovah,
We should serve Him all our days.

Let our voices loudly ring.

He's the everlasting King.

Molding a Masterpiece

Verse 1
Master Potter, why do You lavor all day,
Giving such effort to rough, worthless pieces of clay?
Why such feeling in Your hands?
Why such care in ev'ry touch?
Why all the struggle?
Your creation is nothing but dust.

Chorus
I'm molding a masterpiece, a work of great beauty.
I'm molding a masterpiece;
My labor's not done.
A trophy, a treasure of worth beyond measure-
I'm molding a masterpiece, a masterpiece of love.

Verse 2
Loving Jesus, why are the children all here,
Gathered around You and eagerly clinging so near?
Urgent matters clamor loudly, and the children interfere-
Why do You hold them, and so tenderly dry ev'ry tear?

Verse 3
Heav'nly Father, sometimes I question Your way:
Why do You ask me to mold simple pieces of clay?
Give me eyes to see the future, though it's hidden from my view;
Give me compassion as I'm molding a treasure for You.

God's Eternal Word

Verse 1
Feelings come and feelings go,
For feelings are deceiving.
My trust is in the Word of God;
Naught else is worth believing.

Chorus
I'll trust in God's unchanging Word
For it will fail me never;
And though all things shall pass away,
His Word shall stand forever.

Though my heart should feel condemned
For want of some great token,
There is One greater than my heart
Whose Word cannot be broken.

How I love the Word of God;
Its promises delight me.
I search it pages ev'ry day
For strength and light to guide me.
