Jesus Is Coming Soon
(originally appeared on It's Happening,
this is a newly recorded version)


Troublesome times are here, filling men's hearts with fear
Freedom we all hold dear, now is at stake
Humbling your hearts to God, saves from the chastening rod
Seek the way pilgrims trod, Christians awake


Jesus is coming soon, morning or night or noon
Many will meet their doom, trumpets will sound
All of the dead shall rise, righteous meet in the sky
Going where no one dies Heavenward bound


Troubles will soon be o'er, happy forevermore
When we meet on that shore, free from all care
Rising up in the sky, telling this world good bye
Homeward we then shall fly, glory to share

 

 

He Did It All For Me
(originally appeared on International,
this is a newly recorded version)


Once a man whom we know as the Son of God
Hung upon a cruel tree
He suffered pain as no mortal man
He took my place
He did it all for me


When I step just inside of those gates, those gates of pearl
And the Master's face I see
I'll gladly kneel at His nail-scarred feet
Oh praise the Lord, He did it all for me


He did it all for me
Each drop of Blood was shed for even me
When the Savior cried, bowed His head and died
Oh praise the Lord, He did it all for me

 

 

You Can't Fix It



I recall climbing up that backyard tree
Before I knew it I had hit the ground
She knew my arm was broken
As Mama threw the car door open
And hurriedly she drove me into town


As we sat there waiting I said
Mom it really hurts!
Then she pointed to the doctor with these words


You can't fix it, but He can
Don't you cry, there's healing in His hands
He can take what's broken and make it whole again
You can't fix it, but He can


I can still see me sittin' on that back church pew
Trying to be cool at seventeen
When the altar call was given
I just kinda stiffened
The preacher seemed to look right straight at me


When Daddy put his arms around me
The tears began to fall
Then he pointed to the cross there on the wall and said


You can't fix it, but He can
Don't you know there's healing in His hands
He can take what's broken and make it whole again
You can't fix it, but He can


Are you standing in the rubble of your broken life and wonder
Can the pieces be put back together


You can't fix it, but He can
There is healing in the Savior's hands
Whoa He can take what's broken and make it whole again
You can't fix it, but He can

 

 

I Know
(originally appeared on International,
this is a newly recorded version)


Some people say that this old time religion
It's just a thing of the past
But in this modern age that we're living
It's the only thing that will last
Now you may think that I'm a little old fashioned
Well friend, that's all right with me
But I'm so glad that I am a Christian
And from sin I have been set free


I know I know
There's no doubt about it
He lives in my heart
And I'm gonna shout it
I know I know
My sins are forgiven
And I'm on my way
To a place that's called Heaven


Not long ago at an old fashioned meeting
I knelt on my knees there in prayer
He lifted my burdens, sins shackles fell from me
And His presence was so real everywhere
Now that the load that I carry is lighter
And He changed my gray skies to blue
My steps are now higher for I have this assurance
That His sweet love will carry me through


Come go with me to that land over yonder
He's prepared for the pure and the true
It's a place where sickness and death cannot enter
I'm going brother how about you
Maybe today or maybe tomorrow
He'll return in robes of pure white
I'm packing up now, getting my things together
Who knows it might be tonight

How Great Thou Art
(originally appeared on Hymns,
this is a newly recorded version)


O Lord my God
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all
The world Thy Hand hath made
I see the stars
I hear the rolling thunder
Thy pow'r throughout
The universe displayed


Then sings my soul
My Savior God, to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art
Then sings my soul
My Savior God, to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art


When Christ shall come
With shouts of acclamation
And take me home
What joy shall fill my heart
Then I shall bow
In humble adoration
And there proclaim
"My God, how great Thou art"

 

 

This Little Light Of Mine
(originally appeared on Revival,
this is a newly recorded version)


This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine

Jesus gave me the light, I'm gonna let it shine

I won't let Satan blow it out, I'm gonna let it shine

Hide it under a bushel, no, I'm gonna let it shine

Gonna let it shine till Jesus comes, I'm gonna let it shine

Every day, every day, every day, every day, every day
I let my little light shine

 

 

You Don't Have To Go Home (But You Can't Stay Here)
(originally appeared on The Journey,

Amazing Grace
(originally appeared on Hymns,
this is a newly recorded version)



Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found
Was blind, but now, I see


'Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed


When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun

 

 

I Saw The Light
(originally appeared on Revival,
this is a newly recorded version)


Iíve wandered so aimless, life filled with sin
I wouldnít let my dear Savior in
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
Praise the Lord, I saw the Light


I saw the light, I saw the light
No more darkness, no more night
Now Iím so happy, no sorrow in sight
Praise the Lord, I saw the Light


Just like a blind man I wandered alone
Worries and fears I claimed for my own
Then like a blind man that God gave back his sight
Praise the Lord, I saw the Light


Well I was a fool to wander and stray
For straight is the gate and narrow the way
Now I have traded the wrong for the right
Praise the Lord, I saw the Light

 

 

Keep Our World Safe


My little boy was put to bed tired from his busy day
I tucked him in, kissed his face and said it's time to pray
As I slowly turned to leave the room I stopped to hear him say
Dad I need to talk to someone now, so you must go away


Dear God I pray please keep our world safe
You must have loved us quite a lot to make us such a pretty place
If You'll let me grow to be a man
I'll give you all the help I can, so
God please keep our world safe


They say You made this great big world in less than seven days
I know Your Son lived here a while, did You know I know His name
It's sad to think some people don't really love You at all
I'll do my best to change their minds if You'll let me grow real tall

 

 

God Will Take Care Of You
(originally appeared on Hymns,
this is a newly recorded version)


Be not dismayed whate'er betide
God will take care of you
Beneath His wings of love abide
God will take care of you


God will take care of you
Through every day, o'er all the way
He will take care of you
God will take care of you

 
No matter what may be the test
God will take care of you
Lean, weary one, upon His breast
God will take care of you
