Lyrics

REFRAIN:

O Lord of the Light take a-way the dark of the night.

Open our eyes like a new-born comes into the light,

And blessed by above sees only the love.

O Lord of the Light, let us see like that first sight.

VERSE 1:

Shine O light of the Lord on every hardened heart,

When this life makes a start only to fall apart.

Let us see through our blindness and believe in your light;

To belong is to shine like the Morning Star at dawn.

VERSE 2: 

Shine O Light of the World on every heart and soul.

Flood our deep darkness with love and forgiveness.

Let the sun that never sets shine on the road ahead;

And the way of the cross be our light and lasting life.

VERSE 3:

Shine O Light of our life, shine till the end of time.

Raise us up in the light and peace that you left behind.

Born a-new the "blind" shall see the Truth and Good News;

While the lost and the least find the meaning they all seek.

Story

This song I CALL TO YOU is based on Psalms 17: 6-8;  86: 3;  and 25: 16-18. It is a personal prayer to God for deliverance, as we walk our own "way of the cross" through life.

Lyrics

REFRAIN:

I call to you all the day long.

From dawn to dawn, I call upon you:

My Savior, my Lord, my God.

VERSE 1:

O Savior of my soul, save me in your mercy.

Help me bear the pain of this cross I must carry

Pick me up when I stumble and fall.

Comfort me when it seems like all is lost;

And forgive me forever more, Savior of my soul.

VERSE 2:

O Lord of my world, what wonders I have heard:

How you walked the earth as God's eternal Word,

Bringing news of the kingdom to come,

Saving souls on the cross of lasting love!

And forever I will live your word, Lord of my world.

VERSE 3:

My God, my God Almighty, please have pity on me!

Hold me ever close in the shadow of your wings.

Lift me up and save me from my sins.

Come Lord Jesus, come and deliver me!

Set me free in your glory God, my God Almighty.

ON ANGEL'S WINGS.  This is a joyful and uplifting song about salvation and the things we must do to attain everlasting life by loving God above all (Deuteronomy 6: 4) and by serving the last and the least (Matthew 25: 31-40).

Lyrics

REFRAIN:

Someday, somewhere,

We will rise on angel's wings

And fly away into his open arms,

While all of heaven sings.

VERSE 1:

Someway, somehow, we must find the love

That came from above on the wings like a dove.

Live the way of the Lord and his word heard round the world.

Bless the wonders of his birth and when he walked on the earth.

If with him we hope to dwell, only our love will tell.

VERSE 2:

Someway, somehow, we must find our faith

When we walk alone, looking at life in vain;

So lost like a wish on the wind or tears in the rain.

Heaven knows full well our pain and all the crosses we bear.

If we long for life anew, only our faith will do.

VERSE 3:

Someway, somehow, we must save our soul

And hope against hope to end in heaven's glow.

So, love one another and love the Lord more than ever.

Serve the least and the poor, so we serve God even more.

If this gift of life goes well, only our time will tell.

Story

PRAYER OF THE UNBORN (LET ME BE).  This song touches on the issue of abortion and the right to life from the viewpoint of the unborn, who plead with God and (indirectly) to all of society for a chance to experience life and love as it was meant to be.

Lyrics

REFRAIN:

O let me be, Lord of my life, let me be me!

Let me see the light of day, all the wonders a world away.

O Lord, please hear my plea and let me be!

VERSE 1:

So many souls falling asleep for the rest of time,

Like stars in the sky blinking out before they shine.

Though somewhere we all know, there is a place

Where we shall go to see God face to face.

VERSE 2:

So many lives lost in the tears falling like rain,

While sounds of silence are haunting those who remain.

Life and love, one and the same, so it might seem,

But for me life may be only a dream.

VERSE 3:

Sometimes we feel only the dark keeping us apart,

For love of all life starts as a thing of the heart.

So in my small way I pray to him above.

Let me end someday in the arms of love.

Story

THERE IS A RAINBOW.  This is a song of hope that no matter how stormy our lives may become, God is always there for us, always  watching over us, always loving and forgiving us.  The text is based on Genesis 9: 12-17, where God makes a covenant with Noah after the Great Flood;  and in Luke 9: 25, where Jesus reminds us that our soul is worth more than all the material goods in the world.

Lyrics

REFRAIN:

Somewhere in the storms of life, there is a rainbow,

Watching over us wherever we may go.

Like a bridge over the Flood for us to follow,

When we believe and pray like there is no tomorrow.

VERSE 1:

Why go on looking for the end of the rainbow,

And wanting more gold than we can hold;

When the fortunes of life are not found in the glitter and glow?

Why own the whole wide world, if we lose our only soul?

VERSE 2:

Who can say why all the dark clouds are here to stay,

But there will be a rainbow someday:

To remind all the lost that the light of the Lord is the way,

Shining on hearts of stone, where only love stands alone.

VERSE 3:

Now let us gather our prayers together,

And send them with love over the rainbow:

To bring heaven as close as the heart is to our only soul,

So all the storms we face will never slow the loving flow.

Lyrics

VERSE 1:

Without love, I am nothing.

Without giving, there is no forgiving.

Without kindness and caring for others, I am nothing.

I am nothing without love.

REFRAIN  (Vs.1-2)

But I've seen my Savior on the cross at Calvary,

Giving up his life to set me free;

And I know wherever he goes,

I will follow with all my heart and soul.

VERSE 2:

Without God, I am nothing.

Without faith this way of life is fading.

Without hope in the kingdom of heaven, I am nothing.

I am nothing without God.

VERSE 3:

My soul knows about love:

God is love and love is of God.

Without being born again in God's love, I am nothing.

But now I know what love is.

LAST REFRAIN:

Cause I've seen my Savior on the cross a Calvary,

Giving up his life to set me free;

And I know wherever he goes,

I will follow with all my heart and soul.

Story

LEAD US HOME.  This song reminds us of the parable on the prodigal son from Luke 15: 11-20, and from the conversation between Jesus and Nicodemus in John 3: 8.  It also reflects the   life of all Christians, who often need the Lord to lead us back to   the right path after we have gone astray. 

Lyrics

REFRAIN:

Wherever we may roam, O Lord, lead us home.

Left to wander on our own, often lost and alone.

Lead us home, O Lord, lead us home.

VERSE 1:

Where the wind blows,

Where it comes or where it goes, no-one knows.

So like souls who seem to live and die without caring why,

Where they begin and where they end

Come and go like the wind.

VERSE 2:

Where the rain pours,

Where it falls on land or sea, is unsure.

So like storms are souls who drift along dark and lonely shores,

Where all the doubts and disbeliefs

Rise and fall like the rain.

VERSE 3:

Where the sun shines,

Where it warms and where it glows, heaven knows.

So like souls who follow love and light till the end of time,

Where all are one in life with God

Warms and shines like the sun.

Story

MY BEST FRIEND.  Everyone who has lost someone special in this life, someone close to their heart, someone they called their "best friend", will relate to this song.  Though very sad, it is also a song of faith, hope, and love.  Those left behind must somehow carry on.  They must pass through the shadows and valleys of life with the Good Shepherd (Psalm 23: 4), where the love for their best friend lives on forever and ever.     

Lyrics

REFRAIN

My best friend is gone,

Leaving me alone to carry on

Through all the longing ever haunting my soul,

While the heart never wants to let go.

VERSE 1:

When our memories mostly make the days,

And our dreams only dwell on yesterdays;

While the tears that fall like rain

No longer wash away the pain,

Then our world comes to an end,

As we lose our best friend.

VERSE 2:

Somehow heaven slowly fills the sky

And our love in the silence leaves our side.

In the glow from on high,

The final "love you" is our goodbye,

Then the light that's glory bound

Takes our friend without a sound.

VERSE 3:

Lost in longing and in loneliness,

While our world stops turning in the sadness.

There's a mountain to climb

Through all the shadows and valleys of time;

Where our faith flows like a river,

Our love lives on forever.

Lyrics

REFRAIN:

When the world is rising to the call,

We will hear the trumpets from afar.

And like old Jericho of long ago,

Down will come the walls,

Once and for all.

VERSE 1:

O come on everyone,

Come on up to Jerusalem

And tell the Lord why we lost sight

Of the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

There are walls like hate and injustice

That blind us to love and forgiveness.

So come up to Jerusalem and talk down all these walls.

VERSE 2:

O come on everyone,

Come on up to the house of the Lord,

And pray for peace everyday

And let walls be forgiven away.

Walls like disbelief and indifference

That leave us looking the other way.

So come up to Jerusalem and pray away these walls.

VERSE 3:

O come on one and all,

Come on home to Jerusalem,

Where Christ welcomes everyone

To watch the walls falling one-by-one.

When his light and love come shining through,

We find our faith like the tried-and-true.

So come home to Jerusalem:  the Way, the Truth, the Life.

Story

ALL FOR THE LOVE.  The Lord our God calls us into existence out of pure love;  and it is this loving providence that is present and accompanies us from the moment of our birth to our last breath (Matthew 28: 20).  God is always with us from the beginning to the end, from everlasting to everlasting.

Lyrics

REFRAIN:

Love only for love,

I came into this world to show the way,

To suffer and take death away

After I died, I rose to life anew,

All for the love of you.

VERSE 1:

O I was there

Waiting for you at the dawn of your birth,

Helping you to take your first breath,

And those first steps upon the earth.

When the water was poured over you,

Then we died as one and rose again

With my promise of a new life to begin,

And to be there for you until the end.

VERSE 2:

O I was there

Only for you through the years of prayers and tears,

Helping you to find the way home,

When you were lost and felt so alone.

Wronged by those who did not believe,

You then learned to forgive and let it be.

But what you did for the lost and the least,

Because of love, you also did for me.

VERSE 3:

I will be there

Waiting for you, when the light slowly fades from view;

With your friends and family so true,

Wanting to say their last "I love you."

So be faithful in following my word,

And be everything that born again can be.

When this life comes to an end with your last breath,

Then you will be in paradise with me.

Lyrics

VERSE 1:

So long ago in my short time,

There seemed to be no meaning to this life.

I tried so hard to make it back then,

But only lost, time and time again.

So there I stood with all the poor

And unsure if I could take any more.

REFRAIN    (Vs.1-2)

But I've seen the star shining on Bethlehem

And the cross high over Jerusalem.

I followed the Word from a heart so pure

And found the faith of a true believer.

VERSE 2:

My early years seemed like a sunset,

Throwing shadows where light had shone the way.

I made so many mistakes back then,

Made them over and over again.

So there I stood, where no one's ever proud,

Being just another face in the crowd.

VERSE 3:

My golden years seem like a sunrise,

Spreading light where darkness ruled the days.

I try to be a light to those in need,

With only love helping me succeed.

So here I stand to care for the poor

And so sure that I can do even more.

LAST REFRAIN

Cause I've seen the star shining on Bethlehem

And the cross high over Jerusalem.

I followed the Word from a heart so pure

And found the faith of a true believer.

Lyrics

REFRAIN

Living your life for God is the only life worth living.

We breathe with his breath and see with his eyes.

We reach out with his hands and love with his love.

The only life worth living is living your life for God.

VERSE 1:

In the beginning

God created the heavens and the earth in the beginning.

God said, "Let there be light," and there was light:

Shining from afar, the sun, the moon, and the stars.

In the beginning God made man and woman in his image

In the beginning.

VERSE 2:

In the beginning

Was the Word and the Word was with God in the beginning.

Throughout creation, all things came to be through him;

Without him nothing came to be in creation.

In the beginning was the Word and the Word was God

In the beginning.

VERSE 3:

And the Word became flesh

And made his dwelling among us what was the beginning.

God's new creation in Christ, his beloved Son,

Who came to be the First Born of all creation.

The Word became flesh, so we could share in the glory of God

From the beginning.
