Track Name: Sing A New Song
Let us serve the Lord with gladness
Let us come before Him singing a new song, a new song
Let us worship in His presence
Let us come before Him singing a new song, a new song

For He will direct your path, He’ll calm the water
Serve and gladly sing the Lord a new song

Chorus:
Let us sing, let us sing a new song
And the Lord will bless us all our days
Let us join together, lift up our voices
For the Lord is worthy of our praise

He’s the rock of our salvation
Let us come before Him singing a new song, a new song
He’s a firm and sure foundation
Let us come before Him singing a new song, a new song

For He will direct your path, He’ll calm the water
Serve and gladly sing the Lord a new song

Chorus (3x)
Track Name: Favorite Song Of All
He loves to hear the wind sing as it whistles through the pines on mountain peaks
And He love to hear the raindrops as they splash to the ground in a magic melody
He smiles in sweet approval as the waves crash through the rocks in harmony
Creation joins in unity to sing to Him majestic symphonies

Chorus:
But His favorite song of all is the song of the redeemed
When lost sinners now made clean lift their voices loud and strong
When those purchased by His blood lift to Him a song of love
There's nothin' more He'd rather hear nor so pleasin' to His ear
As His favorite song of all

And He loves to hear the angels as they sing, "Holy, holy is the Lamb"
Heaven's choirs in harmony lift up praises to the Great I Am
But He lifts His hands for silence when the weakest saved by grace begins to sing
And a million angels listen as a newborn soul sings, "I've been redeemed!"

Chorus

It's not just melodies and harmonies that catches His attention
It's not just clever lines and phrases that causes Him to stop and listen
But when any heart set free, washed and bought by Calvary begins to sing

Chorus

Holy, holy, holy is the Lamb
Halleluiah, halleluiah
Holy, holy, holy is the Lamb
Halleluiah, halleluiah
Track Name: Why
They say that into every life some rain must fall
For the pain is no respecter of the mighty or the small
But sometimes it just seems so unfair
To see the One who's had more than His share
Oh, it makes you wonder why

And Lord I wouldn't second guess Your mighty plan
For I know You have a purpose that's beyond the scope of man
If You look inside my heart You will find
That I have always been the trusting kind
Oh, but still I wonder

Chorus:
Why do the rainy days have to come?
When the storm clouds hide the sun
I wanna know why?
Why when the reasons aren't clear to me
When it all is a mystery
I want to know why.
And though down here I may not understand
I won't let go of the unseen hand
For it holds the reasons why

The Lord has never been afraid of honest prayers
And He won't allow the burden to be more than you can bear
When He knows that your trust is in Him
He doesn't mind the questions now and then
Even if you wonder

Chorus
Track Name: I Will Be Here
Tomorrow morning if you wake up,
And the sun does not appear
I, I will be here

If in the dark we lose sight of love,
Hold my hand, and have no fear
Cause I, I will be here

I will be here when you feel like being quiet
When you need to speak your mind,
I will listen and
I will be here when the laughter turns to cryin'
Through the winning, losing and tryin'
We'll be together 'cause I will be here

Tomorrow morning if you wake up,
And the future is unclear
I I will be here
As sure as seasons are made for change,
Our lifetimes are made for years
So, I I will be here

I will be here and you can cry on my shoulder,
When the mirror tells us we're older,
I will hold you and
I will be here to watch you grow in beauty
And tell you all the things you are to me
I will be here

I will be true to the promise I have made
To you and to the One who gave you to me

I I will be here

And just as sure as seasons are made for change
Our lifetimes are made for years
So, I I will be here we'll be together

I will be here
Track Name: I Rather Have Jesus
I'd rather have Jesus than silver or gold;
I'd rather be His than have riches untold;
I'd rather have Jesus than houses or lands.
I'd rather be led by His nail-pierced hand

Chorus:
Than to be the king of a vast domain
Or be held in sin's dread sway.
I'd rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today.

I'd rather have Jesus than men's applause;
I'd rather be faithful to His dear cause;
I'd rather have Jesus than worldwide fame.
I'd rather be true to His holy name

Chorus
Track Name: When Praise Demand A Sacrifice
The call to go to mount Moriah came to Abraham
But the offering placed before the Lord was not a lamb
He bound His only son and when the knife was raised
A sacrifice became the price of praise

Chorus:
When praise demands a sacrifice, I'll worship even then
Surrendering the dearest things in life
And if devotion costs me all
He'll find me faithful to His call
When praise demands a sacrifice

The call to go to Calvary came to God's own Son
An altar waited for the lamb He would become
His hands reached up to heaven as the cross was raised
And with His life He paid the price of praise

Chorus

God hears the words of praise we lift
Yet I have found
He's honored more by what I'm willing to lay down

Chorus
Track Name: There Is A Mountain
There is a mountain I'll cross over;
I cannot see the other side.
Will it be home or just another
mountain to climb? I can't decide.
Fortunately, I'll climb with a Friend,
One who will carry me on to the end.
There is a mountain I'll cross over;
fortunately, I'll cross with a Friend.

There is an ocean I'll sail over;
I cannot read the coming tide.
Will it be still or stormy weather?
When will I reach the other side?
Fortunately, I'll sail with a Friend,
One who will guide with me on to the end.
There is an ocean I'll sail over;
Fortunately, I'll sail with a Friend.

There is a road that I must travel,
Blinded by headlights in the night.
Look for a map or a sign to guide me;
I just want to make, (make it home tonight).
Fortunately, I'll ride with a Friend,
One who will drive with me on to the end.
There is a road that I must travel;
Fortunately, I'll ride with a Friend.

There is a mountain that I gotta cross over (bass solo)
There is a mountain that I gotta cross over (bass and lead)
There is a mountain that I gotta cross over (bass, lead, and baritone)
There is a mountain that I gotta cross over (all 4 parts)

There is a mountain I'll cross over;
I cannot see the other side.
Will it be home or just another
mountain to climb? (Oh, Lord, I can't decide).
Fortunately, I'll climb with a Friend,
One who will carry me on to the end.
There is a mountain I'll cross over;
fortunately, I'll cross with a Friend.

I'll cross with a Friend.
I'll sail with a Friend.
I'll ride with a Friend.
Track Name: Where There Is Faith
I believe in faithfulness
I believe in giving of myself for someone else
I believe in peace and love
I believe in honesty and trust but it's not enough
For all that I believe may never change the way it is
Unless I believe Jesus lives

Chorus:
Where there is faith
There is a voice calling, keep walking
You're not alone in this world
Where there is faith
There is a peace like a child sleeping
Hope everlasting in He who is able to
Bear every Burden, to heal every hurt in my heart
It is a wonderful, powerful place
Where there is faith

There's a man across the sea
Never heard the sound of freedom ring
Only in his dreams
There's a lady dressed in black
In a motorcade of Cadillacs
Daddy's not coming back
Our hearts begin to fall
And our stability grows weak
But Jesus meets our needs if we only believe

Chorus
Track Name: Go There With You
I know you've heard me say these words before
But every time I say I love you the words mean something more
I spoke them as a promise right from the start
I said death would be the only thing that could tear us apart
And now that you are standing on the edge of the unknown
I love you means I'll be with you wherever you must go

I will take a heart whose nature is to beat for me alone
And fill it up with you - make all your joy and pain my own
No matter how deep a valley you go through
I will go there with you
And I will give myself to love the way Love gave itself for me
And climb with you to mountaintops or swim a raging sea
To the place where one heart is made from two
I will go there with you

I see it in your tears - you wonder where you are
The wind is growing colder and the sky is growing dark
Though it's something neither of us understands
We can walk through this together if we hold each other's hand
I said for better or worse I'd be with you
So no matter where you're going I will go there too

I will take a heart whose nature is to beat for me alone
And fill it up with you - make all your joy and pain my own
No matter how deep a valley you go through
I will go there with you

I know sometimes I let you down
But I won't let you go - we'll always be together
Track Name: Rest
Rest, the Lord is near
Refuse to fear, enjoy His love
Trust, His mighty power
Fills every hour, of all your days

Chorus:
There is no need
For needless worry
With such a Savior
You have no cause to ever
Doubt, His perfect Word
Still reassures, in any trial

Rest, the Lord is there
Lift up your prayer
For He is strong
Trust, He’ll bring release
And perfect peace will calm your mind

Chorus

Call Him
If you grow frightened
Call Him
With loving care
He’ll lift the burden and you’ll

Rest, the Lord is near
Refuse to fear, enjoy His love
Trust, His might power
Fills every hour, of all your days

Rest, the Lord is near
Refuse to fear, enjoy His love
Track Name: Midnight Cry
I hear the sound of a mighty rushing wind
And it's closer now than it's ever been.
I can almost hear the trumpet as Gabriel sounds the call;
At the midnight cry, we'll be going home!

I look around me; I see prophecies fulfilled everywhere;
The signs of the times, they're appearing everywhere.
Oh, I can almost see the Father as He says, "Son, go get my children.”
At the midnight cry, the Bride of Christ will rise.

When Jesus steps out on a cloud to call His children,
The dead in Christ shall rise to meet Him in the air.
And then those that remain shall be quickly changed,
At the midnight cry, we'll be going home.

I look around me; I see prophecies fulfilled everywhere;
The signs of the times, they're appearing everywhere.
Oh, I can almost see the Father as He says, "Son, go get my children.”
At the midnight cry, the Bride of Christ will rise.

When Jesus steps out on a cloud to call His children,
The dead in Christ shall rise to meet Him in the air.
And then those that remain shall be quickly changed,
At the midnight cry, we'll be going home.
Track Name: When I Get Home
We were boyhood pals the best of friends
And time was on our side
And we thought the world was in our hands
We were young and full of life
But in the twinkling of a moment
Before a chance to say so long
You were taken from our world
And now you're gone

Chorus:
But I'll see you when I get home
In the sweet bye and bye
We'll walk along the streets of Gold
With angels by our side
Time will have no meaning there
In a land of no goodbyes
Oh it's Good to know
I'll see you when I get home

Oh what a celebration I hope
You all will come
The Father now is waiting and
Soon He'll call us home

Chorus
