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)

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

Why 04:57
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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

Rest 04:12
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

Midnight Cry 07:00
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.

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
