A Whisper Heard Around The World Lyrics

Like a tiny little bubble of air rises
From the bottom of the sea
Slips the sapphire silence
Up to the surface where it longs to be
Up to the light of love
To where the air of hope is sweet
I'm delirious and I'm delighted
And when I finally reach the spot complete
With the close of my eyes
From the hole in my heart comes
A whisper heard
Around the world
With the close of my eyes
From the hole in my heart comes
A whisper heard
Around the world
Whoa! Oh!
Let me go of every longing
Lord, I know You hear when I pray
Everything I couldn't put into words
And when no one hears a word I say
And when I'm faint of heart, mm
Or when there's nothin' I can do
But let You know about the flood in my soul
I can barely give it up to You
With the close of my eyes
From the hole in my heart comes
A whisper heard
Around the world
With the close of my eyes
From the hole in my heart
Comes a whisper heard
Around the world
Around the world!
Oh and when I'm faint of heart
When there's nothin' I can do
But let You know about the flood in my soul
To give it up to You
With the close of my eyes
From the hole in my heart comes
A whisper heard
Around the world
Whoo!
With the close of my eyes
From the hole in my heart comes
A whisper heard
Around the world
Ah, ah, ah, ah!
With the close of my eyes
From the hole in my heart comes
A whisper heard
Around the world, yeah
With the close of my eyes
From the hole in my heart comes
A whisper heard
Around the world
Around the world!
Na, na, na, na!
[scat singing]
Slips the sapphire silence
Whoo hoo!
Like a tiny bubble of air
Rises from the bottom of the sea

After This Day Is Gone Lyrics

I can't tell the future and I don't care
'Cause as I learn to trust You,
It's enough that You're there
Enough that You're there
You've given me the faith
To live through today
So You can have tomorrow,
You can have the next day
You can have the day after, the day after that, Jesus

I believe after this day's gone
Long after all the damage is done
There's still a place in Your heart for me
There's still a plan I can't see
After this day is gone
I always love it when its easy, things are goin' right
There will come a day when
Love is harder to come by
Harder to come by
All I ask, that You help me, stay by my side
You can have tomorrow
You can have the next day
You can have the day after, the day after that, because
I believe after this day's gone
Long after all the damage is done
There's still a place in Your heart for me
There's still a plan I can't see
After this day is gone
Nothin' in a day that time won't heal eventually
As long as Your love lasts forever
Believe it
I believe it will get better
There's a reason why I'm here
That's what I say
I might not understand it
As I face a rainy day
Oh, here comes that rainy day
All I ask, that You help me, stay by my side
You can have tomorrow
You can have the next day
You can have the day after, the day after that, Jesus
I believe after this day's gone
Long after all the damage is done
There's still a place in Your heart for me
There's still a plan I can't see
I believe after this day's gone
Long after all the damage is done
There's still a place in Your heart for me
There's still a plan I can't see
After this day is gone
This day is gone
After this day is gone
Whoo!

Caribbean Dream Lyrics

...It doesn't matter to me, hey!
I'm in the Caribbean
(I'm in no hurry, yeah)
Oh, in my Caribbean Dream

Picture me just lyin' in the sun
Withthe radio on
If nothin' has to get done
Yeah, this reggae music is fun
Rhythm of the island
Happiness come sneakin' up on me
From a serious place
There's not a serious face
On any day of the week
Dancin' with my left feet
Boats are floatin' on the aqua sea
Spirit's soaring with the mercury
You make me smile while you're fillin' my cup
You're fillin' me up
To the brim of my big straw hat
(I'm in no hurry)
In my Caribbean Dream
Out in the Caribbean
(I'm in no hurry, yeah)
Oh, linger on just as long as I can possibly, yeah
(I'm in no hurry)
Yeah, it doesn't matter to me, hey!
I'm in the Caribbean
(I'm in no hurry)
Ah, in my Caribbean Dream
Dancin' to Caribbean beat
Waves of joy come crashin' over me
In my cinnamon tea
I'm just kickin' up sand
On the way to the beach
Pickin' up the seashells
Sit me down
I've been lookin' all around
For that coconut cream
Yeah, could be a permanent thing
Yeah, diggin' the tropical scene
Pushin' up my favorite shades
Boats are floatin' on the aqua sea
Spirit's soaring with the mercury
You make me smile while you're fillin' my cup
You're fillin' me up
To the brim of my big straw hat
(I'm in no hurry)
In my Caribbean Dream
Out in the Caribbean
(I'm in no hurry, yeah)
Oh, linger on just as long as I can possibly, yeah
(I'm in no hurry)
Yeah, it doesn't matter to me, hey!
I'm in the Caribbean
(I'm in no hurry)
Ah, in my Caribbean Dream
Dancin' to Caribbean beat
(I'm in no hurry
Caribbean Dream is easy, breezy)
In my Caribbean Dream
Out in the Caribbean
(I'm in no hurry, yeah
Caribbean Dream is easy, breezy)
Oh, linger on just as long as I can possibly, yeah
(I'm in no hurry
Caribbean Dream is easy, breezy)
It doesn't matter to me, hey!
I'm in the Caribbean
(I'm in no hurry
Caribbean Dream is easy, breezy)
Ah, in my Caribbean Dream
Dancin' to Caribbean beat
(I'm in no hurry
Caribbean Dream is easy, breezy)
Out in the Caribbean
(I'm in no hurry
Caribbean Dream is easy, breezy)
Oh, linger on just as long as I can possibly, yeah
(I'm in no hurry
Caribbean Dream is easy, breezy)
Hey, I'm in the Caribbean

Dying To Meet You Lyrics

There's a longing deep inside me
Some say is a good thing
Even though it's producing such an achin' in my heart
And all this restless imagination of what eternity is like
And seeing God for the first time
Brings a sense of fear but anticipation
Like streaks of gold and purple
Mixing in the morning sky
Just before the sun rises
With it's blinding glow
And it takes my breath away!

Dying to meet You in a heavenly new light
Searching the clouds for possibilities
Dying to meet You, see if all I've learned it true
Throwing away these vain philosophies
Oh, beyond this curtain that I'm clinging to
I know it's You
I know it's You
Came through a process as I searched for my identity
So many things I didn't know and surely never thought I'd learn
Only to find nothing is gained until I give myself away
In a final crowning gesture to the bright and morning star who lives
Jesus is my soul creator who lives and died for me
And I will now return His favor
My heart will stop when I know His face I see
Dying to meet You, we'll sing a brand new song
About the passing of the painful things
Dying to meet You, sad memories are gone
Lost in Your presence as new freedom rings
Oh, above the curtain that I'm clinging to
I still need You, I still need You
Like streaks of gold and purple mixing in the eastern sky
Just before the sun rises with it's blinding glow
And it takes my breath away
Dying to meet You, we'll sing a brand new song
About the passing of the painful things
Dying to meet You, sad memories are gone
Lost in Your presence as new freedom rings
Oh, above this curtain that I'm clinging to
I know it's You, I know it's You

Everything In The Garden Lyrics

I was the first man in Eden...back in
the Garden had a great little place
It was just me and the Lord and we
never got bored...we invented the whole human race
Then we went for a walk in the evening...he
said, "I can't help but notice you're blue"
So the next thing he said was, "let me
borrow a rib and we'll just see what a woman might do"

Well, I slept through the whole
operation ...awoke to find Eve at my side
And God said, "you can have everything in the garden
You can name everything that you see
But just remember one thing what the Devil may bring
And stay away from the fruit of that tree"
Well the first couple weeks was a
pleasure... just enough for my new baby and me
We were never apart; we were lovers
at heart....never came even close to that tree
'Til I left her alone unattended and
she returned from her first shopping spree
it was a sweet little find that I
shoulda declined when she handed that mango to me
Now were blaming everything on the
Devil, but I remember what God said to me..
he said, "you can have everything in the garden
You can name everything that you see
Just remember one thing what the Devil may bring
And stay away from the fruit of that tree"
Back when the Earth was still all milk and honey
Couldn't get it right with only one rule to follow
Guess I need a lot of help from God Almighty
If I want to get back to that Garden tomorrow
Cause you can have everything in the garden
You can name everything that you see
Just remember one thing what the Devil may bring
And stay away from the fruit of that tree
Oh stay away from the fruit of that tree
Stay away from the fruit of that tree
Stay away, stay away from the fruit of that tree
Stay away from the fruit of that tree
Stay away, stay away from the fruit of that tree
Stay away from the fruit of that tree
Stay away, stay away
Stay away from the fruit of that tree

Glad Morning Lyrics

The darkest hour's approaching
Stilled by the silent stars
Time is slowly passing by
Sun has left the sky
Where is the power in hoping
Blinding confusion reigns
On the night of a second day
The night before the day

All hope for love is laid to rest
All cold and tombed in stone
While scattered frineds and fallen angels
Lie awake alone
Glad morning
When love is recovered
Glad morning
And sorrow forgotten
The door once closed and guarded
Lets chadows cast a spell
While an evil's finest hour
A surrendering of power
Now find a light still burning
An open window glows
Even framed on dark despair
Like a bride in waiting
The soul in searching finds its place
And foolish questions raise
All disappear without a trace
When immovable stones are rolled away
Glad morning
When love is recovered
Glad morning
And sorrow forgotten
The soul in searching finds its place
And foolish questions raise
All disappear without a trace
When immovable stones are rolled away
Glad morning
When love is recovered
Glad morning
And sorrow forgotten
Glad morning
When love is recovered
Glad morning
Glad morning
And sorrow forgotten
Glad morning
Glad morning
Glad morning
Glad morning

God Knows Lyrics

Think of love is a good thing
But what again if it's not?
Is the ladder for climbing
Or just whatever's on top?
Do I bury the hatred
Or with a shovel escape
Through the valley of shadow
Through the heart with a stake

God knows and I don't
What's good for me
Ready or not
Learn the hard way
The lesson never stops
Try to resist
This
Somethin's up you don't wanna miss
Ready or not
Learn the hard way
The lesson never stops
Try to resist
This
Somethin's up you don't wanna miss
Do I walk on the thin line
Just to prove that I'm right?
Am I tempted a third time
Just to see if I might
(Just to prove that I'm right)
If I pray am I askin'
That I should live without pain
Is the world for the taking
What will it be that I gain?
God knows and I don't
What's good for me
Ready or not
Learn the hard way
The lesson never stops
Try to resist
This
Somethin's up you don't wanna miss
Ready or not
Learn the hard way
The lesson never stops
Try to resist
This
Somethin's up you don't wanna miss
Lesson number one:
I don't know everything
[scat singing]
Lesson number two:
Only God is not lying to you
[scat singing]
Alright it goes, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah
We all stand in the dark and look through the blinding glass
(dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah)
Yeah, the directions in hand, but there's only one flashlight
(dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah)
And at some point you know what
Everyone else is just a little ill informed
All I'm sayin'!
That's all I'm tryin' to say!
That's all I'm sayin'!
[scat singing]
God know and I don't what's good for me
(repeat 7x)
God knows what's good, what's good for me
(repeat 7x)

Holiday 'N' Heaven Lyrics

I shuffle down past the Third Street Gospel Mission
Jesus always saves a place there just for me
He's got his own band of angels playin' music
From a block away you can hear 'em sing
To a kick drum and a tamborine

Corner of Holiday and Heaven
No place on Earth I'd rather be
Goin' down to let my light shine thru a lonely window
A chance a lost soul will face up to the pain
I like the preachin'.... that little dance he does
So entertainin'
Seems to know just how to save my soul
Take my burdens, make me whole
Right there on Holiday and Heaven
No place on Earth I'd rather be
Now from the outside looks like
Just another lonely place
On just another hard road down town
Where the wind blows the trash around
In circles on dirty streets
But the joy of the Lord's is found
Where the heart of the new believers beat
Corner of Holiday and Heaven
No place on Earth I'd rather be
Right there on Holiday and Heaven
No place on Earth I'd rather be

I Still Love You, Simple As That Lyrics

Armed with all the words a man can find
I speak of lasting love
Oh, and all that I know of you
Is still not half of what I feel
But nothin' I can find to say
Describes the place you hold inside my heart
Not at all like love I've read about
So much deeper tahn the words
Oh simplest words to say

In all we've been through
I still love you
Simple as that
Simple as that fact
No regret and no revision
I'm not looking back
I'm not looking back, no
I'm sayin' I made the right decision
And I'm gonna stand by you
As long as you'll have me, too
I know the work takes me around the world
I keep coming back to you
Oh, you're the hope I'm running to
After all that's said and done
So please forgive me when I fail
My sad attempts don't seem to make it clear
There's only simple words that I can choose
And they're the same words every time
Oh the simplest words that come to mind
In all we've been through
I still love you
Simple as that
Simple as that fact
No regret and no revision
I'm not looking back
I'm not looking back, no
I'm sayin' I made the right decision
And I'm gonna stand by you
As long as you'll have me, too
As long as you'll have me
As long as you'll have me, too
Oh and I find the simplest words
Simplest words that come to mind
In all we've been through
I still love you
Simple as that
Simple as that fact
No regret and no revision
I'm not looking back
I'm not looking back, no
In all we've been through
I still love you
Simple as that
Simple as that fact
No regret and no revision
I'm not looking back
I'm not looking back, no

I'd Like To Thank You Jesus Lyrics

Oh! come on now!
I'd like to thank you Jesus for everything you've done for me
But I'm sure I won't have the time for all the good things come to mind
So for now we'll start with one and then we'll see

I'd like to thank you Jesus for one thing you've done for me
When I give you full control
Then you give me back my soul
And you stir in me a song and let me sing
Ahh well that ain't bad, but I think we're just scratchin' the surface
'Cause when you make the Lord your king
There's always one more thing
That you can thank him for
I'd like to thank you Jesus for one thing you've done for me
You wash my sins away
They need washin' every day
And it's by your love and grace you keep me clean
Now give me a little time out lord
Let me just pull my thoughts together...
(horns)
I'd like to thank you Jesus for one thing you've done for me
It's just one thing at a time, all the good things come to mind
Stir in me a song and let me sing...
(bridge) One thing.... thank you for... one thing.... thank you for....one thing
(testimonies)
*I'd like to thank you Jesus for one thing you've done for me
When I thought all love was lost
'Cause I forgot to count the cost
Well you sacrificed and payed the price for me
*I'd like to thank you Jesus for one thing you've done for me
Your glory fills the sky
And I praise your name on high
It's you oh lord we praise and magnify
*I'd like to thank you Jesus for one thing you've done for me
I was once prepared to die
At the time I still wondered why
But you changed the time and gave back my life
*I'd like to thank you Jesus for one thing you've done for me
You healed my broken heart
When it was tearin me apart
Restored my love and now my heart can sing

I'll Always Have Jesus Lyrics

Memory.... is the first to go
That's what people say when you're gettin old
But I'll always have Jesus
For the rest of my life

Eternally.... it's so good to know
He's still there for me if I lose it all
And I'd rather have Jesus
Than the rest of my life
All those times at the top of the world
Don't recall anyone there
So what good is a spectacular view
Unless you know Jesus is there
To share it with...
Faithfully... is the way I live
Each and every day I have left to give
'Cause I'll always have Jesus for the rest of my life
All those times at the top of the world
Don't recall anyone there
So what good is a spectacular view
Unless you know Jesus is there
To share it with...
Faithfully... is the way I live
Each and every day I have left to give
And I'll always have Jesus for the rest of my life

If You Pray For Me Lyrics

If you pray for me, tell the Lord I need him, mmmmm
I need to know he hears my prayers
And that he cares for me

If you pray for me, tell Lord that I love him, mmmmm
Even though it's hard sometimes
For me to see the light
Lately I have faced the darkest places
I have ever known
Well I hate to say it, lost my way
Found myself alone
'Cause I forgot that I have friends like you
Oh, who know just where to go
So, if you pray for me, tell the Lord I need him
I need to know he hears my prayers and that he cares for me
Oh, I guess I've tried to hide this lonliness
I'm so afraid to come around here
'Cause you might see right through me, yeah
You know my heart feels like an empty nest
A little help and understanding
Is what I'm so ready for
Don't let this hard expression fool ya anymore
If you pray for me, oh
If you pray, pray for me
If you pray for me, tell Lord that I love him, mmmmm
Even though it's hard sometimes
For me to see the light
So if you pray for me
If you pray for me
Tell the Lord I need him, need him
Tell the Lord I love him
I need to know he cares
And that he hears my prayers
And that he cares for me

It Gets Better Lyrics

It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
it gets better
It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
it gets better

The love of God is sneakin' up on me
Just turned around and here it comes I see
Closer he gets
Closer I wanna be
It gets better closer to the love of my life
So never mind all the trouble I've seen
Just caught a vision on a trampoline
Tell everybody I'm takin' the highest road home
It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
It gets better
It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
It gets better
Once you've found the best thing in life is still free
There's no place else to go for me
It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
It gets better
It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
It gets better
One step further, never back
Am I there yet?
No, but I'm happy where I'm at
Just gets better closer to the love of my life
It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
It gets better
It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
It gets better

Joy Is A Singable Thing Lyrics

Oh!
Love love, mm
Love mercy, too
It's God's goodness getting' me through
Love joy
It's the greatest thing
A sweet expression in all I do
Makes me want to cry when I'm happy, oh
Keeps me laughin' some time when I'm sad
When It's good It's so unspeakable
I can't explain it
Oh! Don't wanna lose it tryin' to figure it out

Joy!
(Joy is)
Is a singable thing
Sho' worth singin' about
Not peace, mm
It's not happiness
It must somethin' rolled up in between
Not sure but I do know
What I get when I live my life clean
I ain't got, no, all the answers, no
This feelin' makes a singer of me , yeah
It's true I can't explain it
Oh and I've got to have it, yo!
Throws a light on a shadow of doubt
Joy!

A singable thing
Sho' worth singin' about,

A melody ringin'
From the inside out
Whoo!

When you're hangin' with the heavenly host, no, no, no, no, oh, oh
But when I'm out there facin' down my troubles
Well, I don't mind a present from the Holy Ghost
Yay, yay, whoo!
(Joy is a singable thing
Sho' worth singin' about)
Oh, yeah!
Singin' about!
(Joy is a melody ringin'
From the inside out)
Whoo! I'm talkin' 'bout joy!
(Joy is a singable thing
Sho' worth singin' about)
I say that joy!
(Joy is a melody ringin'
From the inside out)
Oh yeah!, Oh! Ah! Whoo!

Maybe I'm Amazed Lyrics

Maybe I'm amazed at the way you love me all the time
Maybe I'm amazed at the way I love you
Maybe I'm amazed at the way you pulled me out of time
And hung me on a line
Maybe I'm amazed at the way I really need you

Maybe I'm amazed
Maybe I'm a lonely man in the middle of somethin'
That he doesn't really understand
Maybe I'm amazed
M aybe you're the only one who could ever help me
Won't you help me to understand
Whoa!...... help me understand
Maybe I'm amazed at the way you're with me all the time
Maybe I'm amazed at the way I need you
Maybe I'm amazed at the way you help me sing my song
You're right there when I'm wrong
Maybe I'm amazed at the way I really need you
Maybe I'm amazed
Maybe I'm a lonely man in the middle of somethin'
That he doesn't really understand
Maybe I'm amazed
Maybe you're the only one who could ever help me
Won't you help me to understand
Oh!
Oh won't you help me!
Maybe I amazed at the way you
Maybe I'm amazed at the way you love me
You're so amazing!
Amazing grace
How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found
Was blind but now I see
Maybe I amazed at the way you
Maybe I'm amazed at the way you love me

Once I've Arrived Lyrics

Lying awake, night after night
I turn to you for the meaning to a thousand dreams
Why should I fear what I'm given no answers to?
I'm living in uncertainty
What if I cry?
What if I never learn what the future holds for me?
I wait for you
I do
Assured to find that you are all I need

Somewhere beyond here
Is a dreamer's promised land
Faith is the road where without fear
I believe I'll understand
(Once I've arrived)
Why love is hard to hold like dreams
That simply must unfold
(Once I've arrived)
Life is defined, still unexplained
I worship you in teary-eyed laughter
Step of faith again and again
Reaching out to you from vision and strength of mind
I wait for you
I do
I'm sure to find that you are all I need
Somewhere beyond here
Is a dreamer's promised land
Faith is the road where without fear
I believe I'll understand
(Once I've arrived
Once I've arrived)
Somewhere beyond here
Is a dreamer's promised land
Faith is the road where without fear
I believe I'll understand
(Once I've arrived)
Why love is hard to hold like dreams
That simply must unfold
(Once I've arrived)
Why love is hard to hold like dreams
That simply must unfold
(Once I've arrived)
Why love is hard to hold like dreams
That simply must unfold
(Once I've arrived)
Why love is hard to hold like dreams
That simply must unfold
(Once I've arrived)
Why love is hard to hold like dreams
That simply must unfold
(Once I've arrived)
Why love is hard to hold like dreams

One Touch Away Lyrics

Hey!
Lookin' up in heaven
I can't imagine how far it must be to there
You know all too well
I don't have to tell you about this world right here
But I do wanna tell ya
As a friend and a brother
Got a friend in Jesus
He'll love you like no other

One touch away
Two steps apart
Three little words
Can it be so hard ?
After we've come so far
Now can He be so close?
He's standin' at your door
He's just one touch away from your heart
Yeah, mmm!
It's all out in the open
I told ya now I'm hopin' you'll feel like I do
'Cause I can't imagine
Tryin' to make things happen, children
Without God's point of view
'Cause He wrote all the questions
And He's got all the answers
Do ya know He can help you?
Is all I'm really askin'
One touch away
Two steps apart
Three little words
Can it be so hard ?
Just knowin' he's so close
Don't have to run too far
He's standin' at your door
He's just one touch away from your heart
Mmm!
Oh, can it be, can it, can it be so hard?
I can't imagine where I'd be
Without him
Oh He's one touch away
Two steps apart
Three little words
Can it be so hard ?
(Just knowin' he's so close)
Don't have to run too far
He's standin' at your door
He's just one touch away!
(One touch away
Two steps apart)
Two!
(Three little words)
Three!
(Just knowin' he's so close)
After we've come so far
He's standin' at your door
He's just one touch away!
Hey, hey!

Sometimes In The Dark Lyrics

I'm lookin' for good news
I'm hangin' around
A fresh lead and some new clues
And one ear to the ground
'Cause I've seen gloom
As common as rain
The worst in a sad slide
Is when I fail to see beyond the frame

Sometimes in the dark
Between streets, in alleys
An alibi can come undone
When the picture is enhanced
Some light on the subject
Is enough to keep me pushin' on
Gone deep cover
Not takin' the fall
The best kept of all secrets
Is no secret at all
'Cause I've seen liars
Thicker than thieves
Clouding the picture
So watch your step when everyone agrees
Sometimes in the dark
Between streets, in alleys
An alibi can come undone
When the picture is enhanced
Some light on the subject
Is enough to keep me pushin' on
And sometimes in the dark
It feels a little scary
Never know if help is near or far
And shadows make the smallest things
A little bigger than they are
[laughing]
And they are
Just a little bigger than they are
Than they are
Bump, stumblin' around
Stumblin' around
Bump, stumblin' around
Stumblin' I found
I've got news
And it's just fine
And the darkest of dark times
Still can't erase this little light of mine
Sometimes in the dark
Between streets, in alleys
An alibi can come undone
When the picture is enhanced
Some light on the subject
Is enough to keep me pushin' on
And sometimes in the dark
It feels a little scary
Never know if help is near or far
And shadows make the smallest things
A little bigger than they are
Sometimes in the dark
Things look a little bigger than they are
Sometimes in the dark
Things look a little bigger than they are
Sometimes in the dark
Things look a little bigger than they are

Strollin' On The Water Lyrics

Open up my eyes, I pray
Lord, for just a little glimpse of you
That's all I need, it's all I've ever needed
To see beyond myself, beyond this tiny, little world
All your hands have made
With beauty and strength alone
I can see you comin' to me now
Oh, like a shimmerin' light
Shimmerin' light on an open sea
Barefoot on the water
Laughin' at the ocean
Like you were old friends
Callin' out my name
Saying join me now

Strollin' on the water
High over every care
Strollin' on the water
Sinking no longer
Let me rise above the high tide
I can do it, I'll do it, yeah
I know where my strength comes from
Do do do do do do, do do do do do do, do do do do do do
Help me cut these bonds where I keep my spirit tied
All safe and dry
Safe and dry, but so afraid
Let me come to you
Let me run to you
With my heart still beating
Beating in my throat
With my sweaty palms and mouth so dry
Shakin' 'til I can't stand still
All I'm askin'
All I'm askin' is to let me cross
That great divide between you and I
Only you can take me there
So take me there, yeah!
Strollin' on the water
High over every care
Strollin' on the water
Sinking no longer
Let me rise above the high tide
I can do it, I'll do it, yeah
I know that you said, "follow me"
Just let the water flow
Let it go
Oh keep your eyes on me
Do you feel alive?
Try turnin' circles, yeah
Bend your knees
And hold your hands up high
Can you feel the wind in your hair?
With your eyes closed
Take a breath of fresh air
Feel the mist on your toes
Look where we are!
Strollin' on the water
High over every care
Strollin' on the water
Sinking no longer
Strollin' on the water
High over every care
Strollin' on the water
Sinking no longer
Let me rise above the high tide
I can do it, I'll do it, yeah
I know where my strength comes from
Strollin' on the water
High over every care
(I know where my strength comes from)
Strollin' on the water
Sinking no longer
Strollin' on the water
High over every care
(I know where my strength comes from)
Strollin' on the water
Sinking no longer
Strollin' on the water
High over every care
Strollin' on the water
Sinking no longer

Take Another Look At Me Lyrics

I know the things that hurt you by heart
I know before the bad feelings start
I'm watching how you turn away melting inside
And I know you think you'll fix it yourself

You think of Me, it scares you away
Pretty sure you know what I'd say
You've heard so many people cry, speaking for Me
They all claim
You oughta know right by now
Take a took at Me
Don't ya know Me?
I've always been by your side
Take another look at Me
You can need Me
I know when you're tired
And when you're alone and lost
You're so afraid of tippin' your hand
Or learning where this hurting began
'Cause you like the way they see you now, from the outside
So you try to hide how desperate you are
Take a look at Me
You can trust Me
I'll always be by your side
Take another look at Me
You can need Me
'Cause I know when you're tired
And when you're alone and lost
I'm not surprised by the things you do and say
Oh! You'll never see Me walking away
I've been there at every turn you take
And the mistakes you've made
It hurts to see, you're not looking at Me
I'm always the faithful one, always will be
Take a look at Me
You can trust Me
I'll always be by your side
Take another look at Me
You can need Me
I know when you're tired
And when you're alone and lost
I know when you're tired
And when you are lost

Take Heart Lyrics

There's a place
Only a heart can go
And without any word
Let your feelings flow
There's a voice
Only a soul can hear
In a cleansing rain
Falling soft and clear
Come to your troubled waters edge
Step in and you'll find me there
You'll find me there

Take heart
And I'll take your hand,
Be still and be strong,
We will reach the promise land
Take heart
God knows where we are
He won't let us down
He's brought us too far
Take heart
There's a wound
Jesus alone can touch
But it's so hard to face
'Cause it hearts so much
There's a pain
Only His cross can bear
And our only hope
Is to leave it there
Run to your troubled waters edge
Step in and you'll find me there
You'll find me there
Take heart,
And I'll take your hand
Be still and be strong
We will reach the promise land
Take heart
God knows where we are
He won't let us down
He's brought us too far
All around you His angels wait
And though the waves are cold
His wings are great
So trust, He's not gonna let you drown
He's gonna carry us across
To higher ground
Come to your troubled waters edge
And you'll have your miracle
Take heart
And I'll take your hand
Be still and be strong,
We will reach the promise land
Take heart
God knows where we are
He won't let us down
He's brought us too far
So take heart
Take heart
(And I'll take your hand)
Be still and be strong
(We will reach the promise land)
Take heart
(God knows where you are)
Oh, He won't let you down
(He's brought us too far)
So take heart
(And I'll take your hand)
Take heart!
Be still and be strong
(We will reach the promise land)
Take heart
(God knows where you are)
He won't let you down
(He's brought us too far)
So take heart
(And I'll take your hand)
So take heart
(We will reach the promise land)
Oh, be still and be strong, yeah
(God knows where you are)
He won't let you down
(He's brought us too far)
Won't let you down
(And I'll take your hand)
Take heart
Oh be still

Tell Me Where You Are Lyrics

You never said goodbye
Before tearing away
And I could never find you
It's good to hear your voice
Tell me are you O.K.?
Sounds like you're so far away
Take all the time you need
Just stay on the line
I'll hear you this time

Tell me where you are
Oh, I don't want you to feel lost forever
Tell me where you are
I'll be there and if you need
I'll bring you home
So much we left unsaid
Though we never agree
I still miss the time with you here
'Cause you'll always be my child
What I'm longing to say
Let's lay this broken past aside
If you're reachin' out to me again
I am here
I'll give you my time
Sharing the pain won't wash it all away
But there'll be a cleaner wound
It'll heal one day
Oh, oh, oh! Oh!
If you're reachin' out to me again, I am here
I'll give you my time
Tell me where you are
Oh, I don't want you to feel lost forever
Just tell me where you are
I'll be there for you I swear
I'll bring you home
Oh!
Home

The Last Time I Was Here Lyrics

The last time I was here
I can remember standing tall
But looking up to face the door
I can recall each room as large
And not at all that I was small
I was a child, of course
I was a child of yours

Last time I was here
How could I have known
I'd be awakened by the loss of thing I held dear
And that my coming back would mark the fact
I've done the work I'm stronger for
I couldn't ask for more
Stay with me awhile
God of all that's come and gone
You are the faithful Rose of Sharon
You are the morning's final dawn
I need you to pray with me awhile
Let me feel your strength in me
Here in the cradle of my soul
Let me let all else now go
I've gone around the world
To find the precious pearl
Was here all along
Yeah
The last time I was here
I thought I knew the score
I though my world was in my own control
I cursed a lot of things, I blamed my chains
My lack of strength, the simple length of time I've known
Laid here before your throne
Stay with me awhile
God of all that's come and gone
You are the faithful Rose of Sharon
You are the morning's final dawn
I need you to pray with me awhile
Let me feel your strength in me
Here in the cradle of my soul
Let me let all else now go
I've gone around the world
To find the precious pearl
Was here all along
Hey, yeah
Here
Gone around the world
To find the precious pearl
Gone around the world
To find the precious pearl

The Preachin' Is Easy Lyrics

We met on the high road
At a glance, both looking bright an shiny, clean
In that seamless perfection
From the makers of the ad in a magazine
But then one slip is all it takes
The earth is not too far away
I said my friend is calling out from the peaks above
While I'm laid out on the fertile plain

Talkin' to me now sayin'
Can't get around,
And you can't get around
The slippery things in life
And it's technically correct
But the preachin' is easy, baby
You better believe it
Talkin' to me now, sayin'
Talkin' is cheap in my book
Help me up if you've read it, ah yeah
Oh!
I'm under pressure
Under pressure
Crazy pressure now
Makes you want to quit!
Back on the high side
Little worse for the wear,
But I'm truly tried
And I'm now more forgiving
'Cause I know how it feels
Know what it's like
Say, can't get around
And you can't get around
The slippery things in life
Na, na, na, na, yeah
Preachin' is easy, baby
You better believe it
Talkin' to me like it's nothin'
Talkin' is cheap in my book
Look me up when you've read it, whoo!
Oh! Na, na, na, na, na
Under pressure
I'm under pressure
yeah, oh!
Try walkin' a straight line
Even while you're lookin' up the whole time
And there's so many steps in the right direction
So you're gonna miss one sometimes
Someone will say
Should have planned ahead
You should have turned around, oh
Should have seen the light, yeah na, na, na
The preachin' is easy, baby
You better believe it
Talkin' to me now, say
Talkin' is cheap in my book, nah
Wake me up when you'rve read it, whoo!
(Yeah, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, yeah
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na)
The preachin' is easy
[scat singing]
Alright
I'm under pressure
No, no, no, no, no
Not under pressure

This Love Is What I Get Lyrics

I've been savin' up trouble
Just as best as I can
Said if pain is worth something
Ought to be a rich man
Feel like I'm kissin' a killer
In a boxing ring
I keep falling in love
With the same old thing

Well I can see my life in movies
Where I complain that life's not fair
Now looking back with one eye open
I should never have
Never have a prayer
This is what I get
(This love is what I get)
Never had a prayer
And this is what I get
(This love is what I get)
I'm really feeling like nothin' in a dozen ways
They say you can't get somethin' for nothin' these days
But with my head bowed down on a bended knee
I can offer God nothin' but the truth about me
I said, of all you've laid before me
All the choices could have made
Before all that's just
When I took that trust
And I'm sad to say I threw it away
And this is what I get
(This love is what I get)
When I was throwin' away
And this is what I get
(This love is what I get)
After all you've laid before me
All the choice I could have made
I was waitin' to pay
Ah, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(This love is what I get)
I was waitin' to pay
(This love is what I get)
I'm not worthy, I'll admit
But this love is what I get
I'm not worthy, I'll admit
But this love is what I get
This love
This love is what I get
(This love is what I get)
This love is what I get
(This love is what I get)
This love is what I get
(This love is what I get)
I say, this love is what I get
(This love is what I get)
[scat singing]
(This love is what I get)
This love is what I get
(This love is what I get)
This love is what I get
(This love is what I get)
This love is what I get
(This love is what I get)
I say, this love is what I get
(This love is what I get)
What I get, what I get
(This love is what I get)

Turnin' Lyrics

Lord above, I'm selfish born and bred
And everything I had to give I kept instead
I believe those days are over now
'Cause here I am turnin' myself in
Show me how

(Turnin' to You, I'm turnin'
Turnin' to give myself away
Turnin' to You, I'm turnin'
Turnin' to give myself away)
Countin' to three I'll say bye-bye I, I
Won't even mumble me, me, me
Or my, my, my, my
Start with You
Thy will not my will wins
And now I'm offering softened clay
Shape me any way You want to 'cause I am
(Turnin' to You, I'm turnin'
Turnin' to give myself away
Turnin')
Lord I'm turnin', yeah
(Turnin' to face another day)
Yeah, well, my ways aren't like Your ways are
That is always where I fail
Even I know You know better how
Keep our lives on course everyday, yeah
Yeah
And over
You keep me turnin' , mm
Shape me any way You want to
(Turnin' to You, I'm turnin'
Turnin' to give myself away)
Give myself away
(Turnin')
Oh, yeah
(Turnin')
Ah keep me turnin'
(Turnin' to face another day)
Ha, ay yah, ay, ay
(Turnin' to You, I'm turnin' )
Oh, ah
(Turnin' to give myself away)
Oh! Yeah!
(Turnin' to You, I'm turnin' )
Whoo, yeah, yeah!
(Turnin' to face another day
Turnin' to You, I'm turnin' )
Ah, ah
(Turnin' to give myself away)
To give myself away
(Turnin' to You, I'm turnin' )

Where There's Love Lyrics

Where there's love there is hope
Find a thread and weave a rope, pull together
Where there's love there is hope
Play the music, find the note, sing together

Love is a world of bridges
We get across when we're tired of what this is
Our little islands of race, same face
All in the color we trust is not a just case
Not the kinda love we're used to
Hot, cold, bold, week old
Never knowin if it's gonna fold
Don't need more of
A love that starts in the hearts of men
Only by the grace of God
Mercy, let the love begin
Where there's love there is hope
Find a thread and weave a rope, pull together
Where there's love there is hope
Play the music, find the note, sing together
No time for no cryin'
For understandin that you won't find
But let another hundred thousand voices pray
in any language you can always say
God help me
To see each heart that you love like mine
Ahh red and yellow black and white
As I recall they're all still precious in his sight
A love that starts in the hearts of men
It's only by the grace of God
Mercy, let the love begin
Where there's love there is hope
Find a thread and weave a rope, pull together
Where there's love there is hope
Play the music, find the note, sing together
[Rap]
Where there's love there is hope
Find a thread and weave a rope, pull together
Where there's love there is hope
Play the music, find the note, sing together
He stretched his hands out for both black and white
We all are precious in his sight
