It's Happening Lyrics


Jesus Is Coming Soon


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 the world good bye
Homeward we then shall fly, glory to share



He Really Cares About You

Life is full of heartaches and broken dreams
To live is not always as easy as it seems
But God is so faithful so very true
And He really cares about you

Don't doubt or deny it
See what God has done
To prove that He loved us
He gave us His Son
Thank God for the answer
You know it's true
That He really cares about you

Hearts that have been broken can be renewed
Christ knows how you're feeling for His was broken too
Just pray and believe Him, that's what to do
For He really cares about you



Had It Not Been

Just suppose God searched through Heaven
He couldn't find one willing to be
The supreme sacrifice that was needed
To buy eternal life for you and me

Had it not been for a place called Mount Calvary
Had it not been for the old rugged cross
Had it not been for a man called Jesus
Then forever my soul would be lost

And I'm so glad He was willing to drink His bitter cup
Although He prayed "Father let it pass from me"
And I'm glad He didn't call Heaven's angels
From my hands, pulled the nails that torment me



Nearer To Thee

I have a longing in this heart of mine
And I want to be O Lord nearer to thee
I would be holy for I would be thine
Draw me I pray nearer to Thee

Nearer to thee, nearer to thee
Oh blessed Lord this is my plea
I want to stand in Heaven's fair land
Where I would be O Lord nearer to Thee



It's In Your Hands

Where's the spear that pierced His side
When my Lord was crucified
If you're not serving Him it's in your hands

And where's nails that nailed Him there
As he writhed in deep despair
If you're not serving Him, they're in your hands

Christ is still the same He feels every pain
When we've disobeyed His command
And where's the hammer that drove the nail
If His will, my friend, you fail
I'm afraid, my friend, it's in your hands



I'm Almost Home

I'm almost home, I'm almost home
Got a mansion waiting
And I'm almost home

The took the apostle Peter and stoned him o'er and o'er
But he would not deny the Lord as he had done before
They hung him by his feet to die they thought he was alone
But he looked up to Heaven, said I'm almost home

They took the prophet John out on the isle to die
But he had a good connection with the Man up in the sky
God showed him the new Jerusalem, they thought it wasn't long
He said it's not so hard to die when you can see your home



Daddy Sang Bass

I remember when I was a lad
Times were hard and things were bad
But there's a silver lining behind every cloud
Just poor people that's all we were
Trying to make a living out of black land dirt
We'd get together in a family circle singing loud

Daddy sang bass
Mama sang tenor
Me and little brother would join right in there
Singing seems to help a troubled soul
One of these days and it won't be long
We'll be together around God's throne
And we'll join in the family circle in a little while

Oh no the circle won't be broken
By and by Lord by and by
Daddy sang bass mama sang tenor
Me and little brother would join right in there
In the sky Lord in the sky

I remember after work
Mama would call in all of us
You could hear us singing for a country mile
Now little brother he's done gone on
But we'll rejoin him in a song
We'll be together again up yonder in a little while



It Won't Be Long

It won't be long 'til we'll be leavin' here
It won't be long we'll be goin' home

Count the years as months
Count the months as weeks
Count the weeks as days
Any day now
We'll be goin' home

Beloved now we are the sons of God
And it doth not yet appear what we shall be
But we know when Christ shall appear
We shall be like Him
For we shall see Him just as He is
In all of His majesty splendor and glory
Yes we shall see Him just as He is

And I know that we shall be like Him
Yes on that day now we shall be like Him
My Bible tells me that we shall be like Him
Any day now
We'll be goin' home



Mama's Teaching Angels How To Sing


There's a voice missing in our little country choir

Rock of Ages will never sound the same

God heard her singing, Heaven was not complete

Now Mama's teaching angels how to sing


Mama's teaching angels how to sing

Heaven's halls are silent when Mama sings

David lays down his harp

And Heaven's bells won't ring

When Mama's teaching angels how to sing


The old home, its empty

It's lonesome she's gone

And it's hard to know she won't return again

Ah but I'll meet her in that morning

On Heaven's golden hill

Where Mama's teaching angels how to sing





Amazing Love

Amazing love how could it be
That Thou my Lord should die for me
How can it be that I should gain
Forgiveness through thy Holy Name

My soul was bound in sin so deep
But when You spoke my name so sweet
My chains fell off my heart was freed
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee

He took my cares He dried my tears
Amazing love replaced my fears
I do not know just what took place
I can only say t'was amazing grace



Without Jesus, You Won't Make Heaven

Many kingdoms you may share you may be a millionaire
But without Jesus you won’t make Heaven
Deeds and titles you may claim everybody know your name
But without Jesus you won’t make Heaven

When Christ shall come all the saints of God will meet Him in the air
But without Jesus you won’t make Heaven
And when we step inside the gates of pearl the Savior’s face we’ll see
But without Jesus you won’t make Heaven



The Road That Leads To Heaven

I didn't make the road map I didn't make the plan
Just happens the road to Heaven passes through this land

Be patient with me pilgrim I'm just a-passin' through
I'm on my way to the promised land and you're welcome to come too
If I can't help you I don't want to hinder you
I just want you to understand
That the road that leads to my heavenly home
Just happens to pass through this land
Passes through this troublesome land

Ain't got time to rest a while I'm on my journey home
No grass grows beneath my feet I guess I'm a rolling stone
Guess I'm a rolling stone
