I WALK THE ROADS YOU WALKED
WITH EVERY STEP I TAKE
I TRY TO FOLLOW YOU
WITH EVERY MOVE I MAKE
I SEE YOUR SHINING LIGHT
AND LIKE A MAGNET
I AM DRAWN TO YOU
GOD LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE THROUGH
I’LL BEAR THE TORCH AND SHARE THE FIRE
AND CARRY ON THE MEANINGS OF YOUR LIFE
AS I GO THROUGH LIFE

OH I’LL REMEMBER YOU
IN EVERYTHING I DO
IN EVERY STEP I TAKE
IN EVERY MOVE I MAKE
I’LL REMEMBER YOU
AND I’LL WALK IN YOUR SHOES
I’LL STAND IN YOUR GRACE
I SHALL NOT BE MOVED
AND WHAT’S MORE
WITH ALL THAT YOU STAND FOR

I STAND FOR YOU
YEAH I STAND FOR YOU
OOOOOHHHHHHH
I STAND FOR YOU

I DEDICATE MY LIFE
TO THE WISDOM THAT YOU TAUGHT
I LIFT YOUR SWORD OF TRUTH
TO THE BATTLES YOU HAVE FOUGHT
I CARRY ON YOUR NAME
SO ALL THE WORLD WILL KNOW
OF THE LIGHT IN YOU
GOD LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE THROUGH
AND WHEN IT ALL IS SAID AND DONE
THOSE WHO’VE KNOWN ME WILL HAVE KNOWN YOU TOO
THIS I HOPE TO DO

YEAH I’LL REMEMBER YOU
IN EVERYTHING I DO
IN EVERY STEP I TAKE
IN EVERY MOVE I MAKE
I’LL REMEMBER YOU
AND I’LL WALK IN YOUR SHOES
I’LL STAND IN YOUR GRACE
I SHALL NOT BE MOVED
AND WHAT’S MORE
WITH ALL THAT YOU STAND FOR

I STAND FOR YOU
YEAH I STAND FOR YOU
OOOOOHHHHHHH
I STAND FOR YOU

I STAND FOR YOU
I STAND FOR YOU
YOU ARE MY LIGHT
YOU ARE MY LIGHTHOUSE
YOUR BLOOD IS RUNNIN’ THROUGH MY VEINS
YOU STAND FOR THE TRUTH
AND NOTHING LESS
SO I GOT TO
LOOKS LIKE IT’S TIME TO GET DRESSED

MY FEET ARE SHOD
WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE

GOT MY SHIELD OF FAITH
AND THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
HAND ME DOWN MY HELMET OF SALVATION
AND THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT
THE WHOLE ARMOUR
THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD

AND I’LL STAND
I’LL STAND
FOR YOU!

Lord I hear of showers of blessings
Let some drops now fall on me

Let some drops now fall on me

YOU BRING ME JOY

MUSIC AND LYRICS

BRING ME YOUR FEARS
YOUR WORRIES AND YOUR WONDER
BRING ME THE LONG DARK ARMS OF SHADOW
AS THEY REACH ACROSS YOUR MIND
BRING TO ME THE LINGERINGS
OF QUIET CARES AND NIGHTMARES
AND I WILL BEAR THEM ON MY SHOULDERS
AND RELEASE THEM FROM YOUR MIND

BRING ME YOUR TEARS
YOUR TROUBLES AND TEMPTATIONS
BRING ME THE CHANCE TO SHARE YOUR SORROW
AS IT HIDES WITHIN YOUR HEART
BRING TO ME YOUR BEWILDERINGS
YOUR TRIALS AND YOUR FRUSTATIONS
AND I WILL TAKE THEM ON MY SHOULDERS
AND RELEASE THEM FROM YOUR HEART

BRING ME YOUR LIFE
AND I WILL HOLD YOU IN MY ARMS
UNTIL THE GHOSTS AND SHADOWS ‘ROUND YOU
FALL AWAY
BRING ME YOUR LIFE

YOUR GREATEST EXPECTATIONS
GIVE ME A TASTE OF EACH NEW PASSION
AS IT RISES THROUGH YOUR SOUL
BRING ME YOUR WONDERINGS
AND ALL YOUR RESERVATIONS
AND I WILL POINT THE WAY TO HEAVEN
AND PRAY THE PATH UNFOLD

BRING ME YOUR LIFE
AND I WILL ALWAYS BE BESIDE YOU
EVEN THOUGH THE YEARS WILL FIND YOU
FAR AWAY

Faith
Music and Lyrics by: Peter Link
Piano and Vocal Arrangement by: Margaret Dorn

As I sit with my head in my hand
And fight for the way to break free
Knowing nothing around me has gone as planned
And now it is all up to me

When nothing is left to hold on to
And nowhere is there to turn
The fire consuming the spirit within me
Till nothing is left to burn

When out of the darkening shadows
A voice a whisper a sign
The simplest of answers
At the hardest of times
A light calling out to the blind

When all is lost
Have faith
Have faith

Faith can move the mountain
Faith can walk the sea
Faith can heal the heartache
Faith alone can comfort me
And in your trials of fire
Faith can see you through
Faith requires
No magic no money
No mirror no maybes
No matches no makeup
No manual no medicine
Just faith

So when nothing is left to hold on to
And nowhere is there to turn
When the fire’s consuming the spirit
Within you
Till nothing is left to burn
When all seems lost
Have faith
Have faith

Faith can move the mountain
Faith can walk the sea
Faith can heal the heartache
Faith alone can comfort me
And in your trials of fire
Faith can see you through
Faith requires
No magic no money
No mirror no maybes
No matches no makeup
No manual no medicine
Just faith
Faith

Faith can heal you
And faith can comfort you
Faith will walk with you
There’s no medicine just faith

Faith can heal you
And Faith can comfortable you
Faith will walk with you
There’s no medicine just faith

Faith can heal you
And Faith can comfort you
Faith will walk with you
There’s no medicine just faith

Faith can heal you
And faith can comfort you
Faith will walk with you
There’s no medicine just

Faith can move the mountain
Oh yeah!

WE WILL UNDERSTAND IT BETTER

MUSIC & LYRICS BY C.A. TINDLEY

WE ARE OFTEN TOSSED AND DRIV’N

SOMBRE SKIES AND HOWLING TEMPESTS
OFT SUCCEED A BRIGHT SUNSHINE
IN THAT LAND OF PERFECT DAY
WHEN MISTS HAVE ROLLED AWAY
WE WILL UNDERSTAND IT BY AND BY

BY AND BY WHEN THE MORNING COMES
WHEN THE SAINTS OF GOD ARE GATHERED HOME
WE’LL TELL THE STORY HOW WE’VE OVERCOME
FOR WE’LL UNDERSTAND IT BETTER BY AND BY

BY AND BY WHEN THE MORNING COMES
WHEN THE SAINTS OF GOD ARE GATHERED HOME

I THINK ON THESE THINGS

MUSIC AND LYRICS
BY
PETER LINK

WHEN I CONSIDER THE HEAVENS
THE WORKS OF THY FINGERS
THE MOON AND THE STARS
YOU ORDAINED

WHEN I CONSIDER A CHILD
THE STEPS THAT HE’S TAKING
HIS LIGHT AND HIS JOY
SO INGRAINED

WHEN I THINK OF THE WAY
THAT EACH BREATH COMES UNNOTICED
SUSTAINING THIS DELICATE LIFE

I AM SWEPT OFF MY FEET
IN BREATHLESS WONDER
AT THE MYSTERY OF LIFE

WHEN I CONSIDER THE MUSIC
OF ALL THE GREAT MASTERS
AND KNOW IT WAS YOU
THEY ALL HEARD

AND THE WORKS OF OUR SHAKESPEARES
KING DAVIDS AND KEATS
YOU GAVE THEM EACH
EVERY WORD

WHEN I CONTEMPLATE
THE PURE FABRIC OF NATURE
BEWILDERED BY ALL WE HAVE LEARNED

I AM SWEPT OFF MY FEET
IN BREATHLESS WONDER
AT THE MIRACLE OF LIFE

AND I THINK ON THESE THINGS
AND THE WONDER LIFE BRINGS
FROM THE GREATEST OF THINGS TO THE SMALL
AND THOUGH I SPEND MY LIFE
SEARCHING LIFE’S SOLEMN SECRETS
I KNOW I’LL NEVER KNOW ALL

AS I PONDER THE ATOM
THE BOUNDLESS VAST ETHER
THE BILLIONS OF LIVES
ON THIS STONE

I CONSIDER THE GIFT
OF GOD’S IMAGINATION
AND BEGIN TO EXPLORE
THE UNKNOWN

BUT THIS WHIMSICAL WORLD
IT JUST SLIPS THROUGH MY FINGERS
AS I TRY TO HOLD ON TO THE AIR

AND I’M SWEPT OFF MY FEET
IN BREATHLESS WONDER
AT THE MIRACLE OF LIFE

AND I THINK ON THESE THINGS
YES I THINK ON THESE THINGS
AND THE WONDER LIFE BRINGS

The Cathedral Of The Heart

Music And Lyrics
By
Peter Link

Lately It’s Like I’m Livin’
In Some Filthy Times Square Cheap Hotel Room
Fear In Every Corner
Flashing Neon In The Night

Fighting All My Demons
Though I’m Losing In The Battle
And I’m Trapped Here In The Shadows
To The Devil’s Mad Delight

Nothing Seems To Work For Me
I Hate This Life For All Its Trouble
Give Me One Excuse
And I Could Pack It All In

No One Seems To Give A Damn
I Hate Myself For All I Am
Yet One Thing Remembered
One Thing Somebody Said
Still Runs Through My Head
Yeah It Still Runs Through My Head

If You Pierce Through The Fabric
And Get Down Beneath The Skin
You Can Open Up A Hole
And Let The Love Come In

Then Love Will Have Its Way With You
And Tear The Veil Apart
Til’ It Leaves You Standin’
In The Cathedral Of The Heart
Love Will Leave You Standin’
In The Cathedral Of The Heart
Yes It Will Leave You Standin’
In The Cathedral Of The Heart

But I Can’t Seem To Get Out Of This
Filthy Times Square Cheap Hotel Room
It’s Burned Into My Mind
An’ I Just Can’t Let Go

Everywhere I Turn It’s Just A
Mucked Up Mess Of Pure Frustration
Crashing Through My Life
An’ I Just Can’t Say “No”

If I Could Just Listen To
The Two Cents Someone Tried To Tell Me
Turn My Life Around
Before I Crash And Burn

Take The Best That’s For The Taking
Shake The Habits That Need Breaking
Take A Hold Of My Life
When Will I Ever Learn To Follow My Light
Oh I Just Got To To Follow My Light
I Just Got To To Follow My Light
I Just Got To To Follow My Light
Ohhh

And It Will Leave Me Standin’
In The Cathedral Of The Heart
I Can Feel It Now
Love Is Havin’ Its Way With Me

And It Will Leave Me Standin’
In The Cathedral Of The Heart
Light Light
Can You See The Light?!!

Thank You Lord
I Got Shoes On My Feet
I Got Somethin’ To Eat
I Got The Air That I Breathe
An’ I Thank You For Lovin’ Me
I Jus’ Wanna Say
Hallelujah
‘Cause Love Has Freed Me

An’ Right Now
I Make A Promise To You
To Do All I Can Do
To Keep Your Love Runnin’ Through Me
An’ Your Light Comin’ To Me
Take A Hold Of My Life
An’ Turn To That Light
And Let Love Lead

And Leave Me Standing
In The Cathedral Of The Heart

Yes Love Will Leave Me Standin’
In The Cathedral Of The Heart!

WERE YOU THERE?

TRADITIONAL SPIRITUAL

WERE YOU THERE WHEN THEY CRUCIFIED MY LORD
WERE YOU THERE
WERE YOU THERE WHEN THEY CRUCIFIED MY LORD
OH SOMETIMES IT CAUSES ME TO TREMBLE
TREMBLE TREMBLE
WERE YOU THERE WHEN THEY CRUCIFIED MY LORD

GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND

LYRICS

PETER LINK & JENNY BURTON

MUSIC
BY
PETER LINK

NO MATTER WHAT YOU THINK OF HIM
NO MATTER HOW YOU’VE LOST YOUR WAY
GOD IS THERE
NO MATTER THAT YOU’VE GIVEN UP
AND TURNED YOUR BACK AND CEASED TO PRAY
GOD IS THERE

LOSE YOUR WAY IN SPACE AND TIME
FOR TEN THOUSAND YEARS
TURN BACK TO HIM
AND HE’LL BE THERE
WHERE HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN

HE HOLDS YOU IN THE INFINITE
IN HIS EVERLASTING ARMS
GOD IS THERE IN YOUR BREATH
IN THE BEATING OF YOUR HEART
HE HOLDS YOUR HAND IN HIS
YOUR FINGERS INTERTWINED
IN EACH AND EVERY THOUGHT HE HAS
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND

THEY SAY THIS WORLD WILL END IN TIME
AND ALL THINGS CHANGE AND PASS AWAY
GOD IS THERE
AND WHEN IT ALL COMES CRASHING DOWN
AND WHEN WE FACE OUR JUDGMENT DAY
GOD IS THERE

STANDING AT THE WATCH FIRES
MINDING HIS OWN
THE SHEPHERD OF A BILLION SOULS
NO YOU ARE NOT ALONE

HE HOLDS YOU IN THE INFINITE
IN HIS EVERLASTING ARMS
GOD IS THERE IN YOUR BREATH
IN THE BEATING OF YOUR HEART
HE HOLDS YOUR HAND IN HIS
YOUR FINGERS INTERTWINED
IN EACH AND EVERY THOUGHT HE HAS
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND

WORKIN’ YOUR WAY THROUGH A MINEFIELD
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND
LOST YOUR JOB AN’ NOWHERE TO TURN
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND
LOOKIN’ AT LIFE ABOUT TO TURN 80
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND
IN OVER YOUR HEAD AN’ LOOKIN’ FOR ANSWERS
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND

FACIN’ THE NEWS OF SURGERY
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND
IT’S TEN PM DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR CHILD IS
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA BOTH IN MIND
MESSED UP DRUGGED OUT TRYIN’ TO SURVIVE
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND
SLEEPIN’ ON THE STREET NO FOOD TO EAT
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND

GETTIN’ OUTA COLLEGE AIN’T GOT NO DIRECTION
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND
SITTIN’ IN THE PATH OF A HURRICANE
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA ALL IN MIND
SCARED TO DEATH HE’S CHEATIN’ ON YOU
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA BOTH IN MIND
LAYIN’ IN THE HOSPITAL WONDERIN’ WHAT HAPPENED
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND

WISHIN’ YOU COULD LOSE ALL THEM POUNDS
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND
WISHIN’ YOU LOOKED LIKE ANYBODY ELSE
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND
TRYIN’ TO BREAK THE SPELL OF THAT WEED
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND
LOOKIN’ TO FIND A NEW DIRECTION
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND

TRYIN’ TO GET ON TOP OF YOUR LIFE
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND
PUSHIN’ TO GET ON TOP OF YOUR LIFE
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND
SCRATCHIN’ TO GET ON TOP OF YOUR LIFE
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND
FIGHTIN’ TO GET ON TOP OF YOUR LIFE
GOD’S GOT ‘CHA IN MIND

GRATEFUL

MUSIC AND LYRICS
BY
PETER LINK

I WAKE UP EVERY MORNING
AND I AM GRATEFUL
I’M ALIVE
AND EVERY TIME I COUNT MY BLESSINGS
I REALIZE THAT I AM HERE WITH YOU

AND WHEN EACH NIGHT
I TURN THE LIGHT DOWN
AND THANK YOU FOR MY LIFE
SOMETIMES IT IS THE ONLY WAY
I KNOW HOW TO PRAY
I’M GRATEFUL FOR THIS DAY

AND WHEN I DON’T REMEMBER
TO GIVE IT UP AND THANK YOU LORD
I LOSE A LITTLE LIFE PERSPECTIVE
AND DRIFT AROUND
TILL SENSE HAS BEEN RESTORED

AND WHEN THE SLINGS AND ARROWS
OF GREAT MISFORTUNE COME MY WAY
I TRY TO STOP AND COUNT MY BLESSINGS
AND JUST BE GRATEFUL
GRATEFUL EVERY DAY

FOR A HEART THAT BEATS
FOR THE BREATH THAT RISES
FOR A CHILD THAT SLEEPS
IN HIS MOTHER’S ARMS
FOR THE LOVE OF LIFE
GRATEFUL FOR THE WAY MY LIFE HAS TURNED
THANKFUL FOR THE LITTLE THINGS I’VE LEARNED
GRATEFUL FOR THE WISDOM OF THE WISE

I WAKE UP EVERY MORNING
AND I AM GRATEFUL
I’M ALIVE
AND EVERY TIME I COUNT MY BLESSINGS
I REALIZE THAT I AM HERE WITH YOU

AND WHEN THE SLINGS AND ARROWS
OF GREAT MISFORTUNE COME MY WAY
I TRY TO STOP AND COUNT MY BLESSINGS
AND JUST BE GRATEFUL
GRATEFUL EVERY DAY

MUSIC
BY
PETER LINK

LOVE CHANGES ALL
TRYING US TEACHING US
LOVE CHANGES ALL
GUIDING US HEALING US
LOVE CHANGES ALL
EVEN THE WORST IN US
FADES IN THE PRESENCE OF LOVE
ISN’T IT A WONDERFUL WORD
ISN’T IT THE ESSENCE OF LIFE
AND IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE

LOVE CHANGES ALL
CLEANSING US FEEDING US
LOVE CHANGES ALL
SOOTHING THE NEED IN US
LOVE CHANGES ALL
MENDING THE BROKEN HEART
BENDING THE UNBENDING WILL
ISN’T IT A WONDERFUL WORD
ISN’T IT THE MARROW OF LIFE
AND IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE

SO USE LOVE
THEN USE IT AGAIN
YOU WON’T GROW WEARY
I MAKE THE STRONGEST DEMANDS ON LOVE
AND LOVE NEVER FAILS ME

LOVE CHANGES ALL
WARMING THE COLDER PARTS
LOVE CHANGES ALL
TOUCHING THE LONELY HEARTS
LOVE CHANGES ALL
JUST LIKE THE BREATH OF SPRING
CHASES THE WINTER AWAY
ISN’T IT A WONDERFUL WORD
ISN’T IT THE SECRET OF LIFE
YET IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE

TOUCH THIS HEART OF MINE

MUSIC AND LYRICS
BY
PETER LINK & JENNY BURTON

I’VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH
I CAN’T STAND THE PRESSURE
OH LORD I’VE TRIED EVERYTHING
IF YOU WOULD TOUCH THIS HEART OF MINE
GIVE ME THE GRACE TO FIND MY WAY AGAIN
COME IN AND TOUCH THIS HEART OF MINE

I’VE GONE NOW FROM BAD TO WORSE
FROM THE PAN TO THE FIRE
GOD KNOWS ONLY ALL TOO WELL
IT’S TIME TO TOUCH THIS HEART OF MINE
GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO CLIMB BACK UP AGAIN
I KNOW YOU’LL TOUCH THIS HEART OF MINE

‘CAUSE SOMETIMES LIFE AIN’T NO LAUGHING MATTER

TOO MANY MOMENTS GONE BY THE WAYSIDE
TOO MANY THINGS LEFT UNATTENDED
TOO MANY DREAMS LEFT BROKEN AND BATTERED
TOO MUCH TIME SPENT WONDERING WHAT HAPPENED

TOO MANY FRIENDS LOST TOO MANY CASUALTIES
TOO MANY HARD TIMES TOO MUCH ABANDONED
NOBODY KNOWS THE HARD ROAD WE TRAVEL
NOBODY KNOW THE TROUBLES UNSPOKEN

GOD’S GONNA FIX IT
HE’LL FIX YOUR SOUL
GOD’S GONNA FIX IT
OH THE BLESSINGS UNTOLD
GOD’S GONNA FIX IT
HE’LL FIX IT ALL RIGHT
GOD’S GONNA FIX IT
IT’S DARKEST ‘FORE THE LIGHT

GOD’S GONNA FIX IT
HE’LL FIX YOUR SOUL
GOD’S GONNA FIX IT
OH THE BLESSINGS UNTOLD
GOD’S GONNA FIX IT
HE’LL FIX IT ALL RIGHT
GOD’S GONNA FIX IT

I FEEL HIM COME OVER ME
HIS BREATH LIKE AN ANGEL
I KNOW HIM HE’S HERE WITH ME
AND HE WILL TOUCH THIS HEART OF MINE
GIVE ME THE POWER TO STAND BACK UP AGAIN
YES HE WILL TOUCH THIS HEART OF MINE

BUT TOO MUCH CONFUSION TOO MANY BREAKDOWNS
TOO MANY PITFALLS TOO MUCH BAD LUCK
WALK ON EGGSHELLS DANCE ON THE HOT COALS
TRYIN’ TO SURVIVE WHILE LOOKIN’ FOR POTHOLES

AND TOO MANY TIMES I’VE TRIED AND I’VE FAILED
BROKEN AND HUMBLED LOST IN MY TROUBLES
LOOKIN’ ON THE DARK SIDE FACE TO THE WALL
AND LEFT WITH ONLY A PIECE OF MY SHADOW

I’M GOOD FOR A CHANGE OF HEART
GOD KNOWS I’VE BEEN JADED
I’LL NO LONGER PLAY THE PART
NOR WILL I LIVE MY LIFE AS A SHAM
FROM NOW ON I LIVE AS I TRULY AM

I LAUGH IN THE FACE OF IT
“HA HA” IN DEFIANCE
I’M LEFT WITH NO TRACE OF IT
FOR GOD HAS TOUCHED THIS HEART OF MINE
AND WITH HIS GRACE I’VE FOUND MY WAY AGAIN
HE CAME AND TOUCHED THIS HEART OF MINE

HA HA HA TO LAUGH AGAIN
HA HA HAL-LE-LU-JAH
HA HA HA TO SING AGAIN
HE CAME AND TOUCHED THIS HEART OF MINE
HE CAME AND TOUCHED THIS HEART OF MINE
HE CAME AND TOUCHED THIS HEART OF MINE

LYRICS

JULIA WARD HOWE

I HAVE SEEN HIM IN THE WATCH FIRES
OF A HUNDRED CIRCLING CAMPS
THEY HAVE BUILDED HIM AN ALTAR
IN THE EVENING DEWS AND DAMPS
I CAN READ HIS RIGHTEOUS SENTENCE
BY THE DIM AND FLARING LAMPS
HIS TRUTH IS MARCHING ON
GLORY! GLORY! HALLELUJAH
GLORY! GLORY! HALLELUJAH
GLORY! GLORY! HALLELUJAH
HIS TRUTH IS MARCHING ON

AND LIFT UP YOUR EYES

END RAP:
Yes, behold I will come
Like a chariot in a whirlwind
Like thunder on the mountain
Like the holy waters of the rivers running down
Through the wilderness of your lives

I will come in the clouds, in the bushes, in the brambles
In the back streets burnin’ through the heavens
As I crack the sky

I will come to the ghettos and slums
Of the inner city tenements
To the bone dry drought of the dust bowl
To the coal mines
To the battlefields
To the foxhole
To the lost souls

If only you will lift up…

LIFT UP YOUR EYES

IN THE GARDEN

MUSIC AND LYRICS
BY
C. AUSTIN MILES

I COME TO THE GARDEN ALONE
WHILE THE DEW IS STILL ON THE ROSES
AND THE VOICE I HEAR
FALLING ON MY EAR
THE SON OF GOD DISCLOSES

AND HE WALKS WITH ME
AND HE TALKS WITH ME
AND HE TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN
AND THE JOY WE SHARE AS WE TARRY THERE
NO OTHER HAS EVER KNOWN

HE SPEAKS AND THE SOUND OF HIS VOICE
IS SO SWEET THE BIRDS HUSH THEIR SINGING
AND THE MELODY
THAT HE GAVE TO ME
WITHIN MY HEART IS RINGING

AND HE WALKS WITH ME
AND HE TALKS WITH ME
AND HE TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN
AND THE JOY WE SHARE AS WE TARRY THERE
NO OTHER HAS EVER KNOWN

I’D STAY IN THE GARDEN WITH HIM
AS THE NIGHT AROUND ME IS FALLING
THOUGH HE BIDS ME STAY
I MUST GO MY WAY
CAUSE THE WORLD IS ALWAYS CALLING

BUT HE WALKS WITH ME
AND HE TALKS WITH ME
AND HE TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN
AND THE JOY WE SHARE AS WE TARRY THERE
NO OTHER HAS EVER KNOWN

JUST GOT TO SING

MUSIC AND LYRICS

COULD IT BE MY HEART’S ON FIRE
COULD IT BE THE SEASON
COULD IT BE IT’S TIME TO SING AGAIN

LIVING OUT MY HEART’S DESIRE
GIVING ME A REASON

CAUSE I DON’T GOT TIME TO WAIT ONE MOMENT
I WON’T STOP AND DELAY WHAT MUST BE
I CAN’T HOLD BACK I’M SORRY BUT I’M HERE
AND I JUST GOT TO SING

I JUST GOT TO SING
I JUST GOT TO SING

CELEBRATE THE SIMPLEST OF THINGS

LET GO AND OPEN YOUR HEART
THROW BACK YOUR HEAD AND BE GLAD
GRAB ON TO THE RHYTHM OF LIFE
DROP ALL YOUR WORRIES AND RIDE IT
TUNE INTO THE SOUND OF THE SOUL
BE ONE WITH THE MUSIC THAT MOVES YOU
REJOICE NOW YOU’RE UP ON A ROLL
REJOICE AND LET IT WASH OVER YOU
TILL IT’S PART OF YOU

I CAN FEEL MY HEART’S ON FIRE
I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT IT
YES IT’S TIME IT’S TIME TO SING AGAIN

SOMETHING IN ME IS SO EXCITED
SOMETHING’S MOVED ME BEYOND SENSATION
SOMETHING’S GOT ME BESIDE MYSELF WITH JOY
SO I GOT TO SING
I JUST GOT TO SING
I JUST GOT TO

SOMETHING FILLED ME WITH ALL THIS SPIRIT
SOMETHING WHISPERED MY NAME
AND CALLED ME
SOMETHING JUST LIFTED ME UP
AND DROPPRD ME HERE
AND NOW I GOT TO SING
I JUST GOT TO SING
I JUST GOT TO SING
I JUST GOT TO SING
I JUST GOT TO SING

CELEBRATE THE PEACE IN YOUR HEART
AND IF YOUR WORLD IS FALLING APART
JUST FIND A SPECK OF SUBSTANCE AND START
TO CELEBRATE
IT DON’T MATTER WHAT’S ON THE WING
JUST THROW YOUR HEAD BACK
LET THE ROOM RING
CAUSE LIVING IS REASON ENOUGH TO SING
SO CELEBRATE

I JUST GOT TO SING
I JUST GOT TO SING
I JUST GOT TO SING
I JUST GOT TO SING

CELEBRATE THE GOOD YOU HAVE DONE
WHAT YOU’VE LOST AND WHAT YOU HAVE WON
JUST CELEBRATE THE WARMTH OF THE SUN
COME CELEBRATE

CELEBRATE
I JUST GOT TO SING!!!

AND NOW AT LAST
WE COME TO THE BEGINNING
STANDING ON THE THRESHOLD
OF A NEW REVELATION
READY AT THE WAITING
AS THE WORLD IT GOES ON SPINNING
NOW COMES THE MOMENT
OF SUCH HIGH EXPECTATION

KNOWING WHAT WE HAVE TO DO
AND STEPPING FORTH TO DO IT
IT ALL COMES DOWN TO ME AND YOU
AND THE WILL TO GET TO IT

AND LET’S REMEMBER THIS PEOPLE
AS THE TIME DRAWS NEAR
THERE IS ONE CLEAR BEAM OF TRUTH
THAT WILL HELP US PERSEVERE

AND THE TRUTH’S COMIN’ OUT AT LAST

OH YEAH THE TRUTH’S COMIN’ OUT
THROUGH THE PEOPLE
LEMME TELL YA’ ‘BOUT IT
