Duane Allen Out Front Lyrics



The Church Triumphant

It's the old ship of Zion
It's hope for the lost and the dyin'
It's a soul savin' station
The tower of salvation

Well it's the church triumphant, oh Lord
And it's built by the Hand of the Lord

I'm talkin' 'bout the church
In the book of Revelation
It's built from the Rock
It's got a firm foundation
It's been through the flood
It's been through the fire
But one of these days
The church is gonna move up a little higher

It's been through the storm
But the storm couldn't turn it
It's been through the fire
But the fire couldn't burn it
It's been through the lions
But the lions couldn't eat it
Fought a lot of wars
But it's never defeated



The King And I

The King and I walk down life's road together
Where many people go passing by
The greatest one, and I a lowly beggar
Walk hand in hand
The King and I

Why He should care for me will always be a mystery
He holds the whole world in His hand but what am I
And so my heart somehow can't help but wonder
Why we're together
The King and I



My Soul Is Satisfied

I have found the Lord
He's walkin' by my side
I am happy today
Since He is my guide

My ways are gettin' clearer
Heaven's gettin' nearer
Load feels lighter
Path seems brighter
Since He's a-walkin' by my side
My soul is satisfied

No need to ever turn back now
I am Heaven bound
Jesus has just saved me
I was lost but now I'm found
In Him I've found a joy
That makes me want to shout
When He forgave my sins
There was not a doubt that

He is leading the way
Through Him I can win
Hell's behind me now
He's forgiven all sin



I'm Going Home To Jesus

I'm going home to Jesus
I'm going home to Jesus

I'm going home to Jesus in Heaven fair
Going home to Jesus, when I get there
He'll put His arms around me
And He'll walk me in
Yes now I'm going home to Jesus
When my life ends

I'll praise the name of Jesus with my last breath
For He said that I'd find new life in death
He must have loved me so much
With His life He paid
Yes now I'm going home to Jesus
To live someday



In The Shelter Of His Arms


When my soul was disturbed with sorrow
When my heart was burdened with sin
Jesus opened His arms of mercy
And tenderly took me in

Though the world around be raging
And it's filled with so many alarms
Just trust in Jesus and He will keep you
In the shelter of His arms

There is peace in the time of trouble
There is peace in the midst of a storm
There is peace though the world be raging
In the shelter of His arms



Where Goes The Wind


Wandering wind, whispering wind
Where goes the wind

Where did the moon get it's silvery light
How do the stars light up the dark night
Where does the night go when morning comes in
Which way's Heaven and where goes the wind

How does the world turn, does anyone know
Why does the seed die and then start to grow
How does the newborn know a kind mother's hand
Which way is Heaven and where goes the wind

Yesterday's gone, but where did it go
Tomorrow may come but nobody knows
Where does the Lord live, oh where is that land
Which way did time go and where goes the wind

Wandering wind, whispering wind
Where are you going
Is there no way of knowing
Where your warm winds are blowing



I Feel It In My Soul


I never shall forget the day
When Jesus came to me to stay
He rolled my heavy burdens all away
He made my blinded eyes to see
He set the captive spirit free
Now I feel it feel it feel it in my soul

Oh yes I feel it, feel it in my soul
I feel it in my soul
This joy and peace the whole wide world should know
Well it thrills my soul and lights the way
I love Him better every day
And I feel it, feel it, feel it in my soul

When saving graces comes to your soul
Twill make the hallelujahs roll
You'll find the calmness sweet beyond compare
Well it'll make you love your fellow man
We'll go to Glory hand in hand
And you'll feel it, feel it, feel it in your soul



Who Am I?


When I think of how He came so far from Glory
Came to dwell among the lowly such as I
To suffer shame and such disgrace
On Mount Calvary take my place
Then I ask myself this question
Who am I

Who am I that a king would bleed and die for
Who am I that He would pray not my will thine for
The answer I may never know
Why He'd ever love me so
That to an old rugged cross He'd go
For who am I

Then I'm reminded of His words I'll leave ye never
Just be true I'll give to you life forever
I wonder what I might have done
To deserve God's only Son
To fight my battles until their won
For who am I



It Is No Secret


The chimes of Time ring out the news
Another day is through
Someone slipped and fell
Was that someone you
You may have longed for added strength
Your courage to renew
Do not be disheartened
For I bring news for you

It is no secret what God can do
What He's done for others
He will do for you
With arms wide open
He'll pardon you
It is no secret what God can do

There is no night for in His Light
You'll never walk alone
Always feel at home
Wherever you may roam
There is no power can conquer you
While God is on your side
Just take Him at His promise
Don't run away and hide



Jesus My Lord


While reading the other day I ran across a thought
This is what it had to say
A young man not long ago in another land
Carried a story that brought hope to troubled man
Some accepted some rejected
Some did not understand
His story was one of love, hope and peace
He brought love to the motherless child
He gave hope to those in despair
He promised peace to those in prayer
Even though this young man lived 2,000 years ago
He told how to have peace in our land
This peace is not found though the spilling of blood in a foreign land
But it's found through the shedding of tears from the heart of man

His name is Jesus
His name is Jesus
He is the Answer
Jesus My Lord



Then I'll Know That You Know My Savior


Do people wonder if you really know Him
Can they tell by the way that you live
There's only one way they surely can know
By the fruits of the Spirit you give

If you can sing when it seems there is nothing to sing about
Then I'll know that you know my Savior
If you can pray when others say there is no use of praying
Then I'll know that you know my Savior

When troubles come and doubts arise
You have tears in your eyes
Still you trust in the Savior's love
And then my friend if at the end you can look up to Heaven
Then I'll know that you know my Savior



God Is Near


If you are burdened with toil and strife
If sin is present within your life
God sends His spirit to comfort you
Ask Him believing, He'll pardon you

Be still and know that God is near
Be still and feel His presence here
Lift up your eyes and do not fear
Be still and know that God is near
