Asleep In The Light Lyrics

Do you see, do you see, all the people sinking down,
Don't you care, don't you care, are you gonna let them drown,
How can you be so numb, not to care if they come,
You close your eyes and pretend the job's done.

Oh Bless me Lord, bless me Lord, you know it's all I ever hear,
No one aches, no one hurts, no one even sheds one tear,
But He cries, He weeps, He bleeds, and He cares for your needs,
And you just lay back and keep soaking it in, oh, can't you see it's such sin?

Cause He brings people to your door,
And you turn them away, as you smile and say,
God bless you, be at peace, and all Heaven just weeps,
Cause Jesus came to your door, you've left Him out on the streets.

Open up, open up, and give yourself away,
You've seen the need, you hear the cry, so how can you delay,
God's calling and you're the one, but like Jonah you run,
He's told you to speak, but you keep holding it in,
Oh, can't you see it's such sin?

The world is sleeping in the dark,
That the church can't fight, cause it's asleep in the light,
How can you be so dead, when you've been so well fed,
Jesus rose from the grave, and you, you can't even get out of bed,
Oh, Jesus rose from the dead, come on, get out of your bed.

How can you be so numb, not to care if they come,
You close your eyes and pretend the job's done,
You close your eyes and pretend the job's done,
Don't close your eyes, don't pretend the job's done.
Come away, come away, come away with Me, My love,
Come away, from this mess, come away with Me, My love.

Because Of You Lyrics

People smile at me and ask me what it is,
That makes them want to be just like I am,
So I just point to you and tell them, yes it's true,
I'm no special one, I'm just one man.

It's because of you, people smile at me and say, what a lucky guy,
It's because of you, I can raise my hands and reply,
And say I'm happy because of you.

Now people just can't believe, that my life used to be,
Something that no one had any use for.
I'd stay at home each night, never shine the light,
And I thank you, it will never be like before.

It's because of you, people point at me and say I like what that boys got.
And because of you, I confess I don't have a lot,
But what I have is because of you.

Now people smile at me and ask me what it is
That makes them want to be just like I am.
So I just point to you and tell them, yes it's true,
I'm no special one, I'm just one man.

It's because of you, people smile at me and they say, what a lucky guy,
It's because of you, I can raise my hands to the sky,
And say I'm only happy because of you.

Dear John Letter (To The Devil) Lyrics

Oh, I used to love you, but now that's hard to do,
Cause I got some information about the evil things at night that you do.
Now the whole thing is through, we're through.
Oh, you're such a devil, how'd you get me to believe you were true,
Oooh.

Oh my momma warned me, and how my daddy cried,
The day I left my home you said you'd always keep me satisfied,
But oh, how you lied, you lied.
Well I should have heard my momma's words,
But then I guess I had too much pride, original sin.

I used to lie away at night and see your face on the ceiling,
Oh, what a bad feeling, I have when I think of how you almost got me,
In the ways of the world, in the ways of the world.

My so called friends say I've misjudged you, my anger's all in vain,
But I'm afraid you got to them before I had the chance to explain,
And it caused me such pain, ouch.
Cause they were such good friends of mine, but now you've got them,
Playing your game, you creep.

Whoa, I used to lie awake at night and see your face on the ceiling,
What a bad feeling I have when I think of how you almost got me
In the ways of the world, in the ways of the world, oh in the ways of the world.
Well, I believe in Jesus, and what He said He's gonna do,

Put and apple in your lying mouth and cook you in a sulfur stew,
Whew, one that will never be through, is it soup yet, no.
Oh but if He hadn't rescued me then I'd be down there cooking too.
Oh, if Jesus hadn't rescued me then I'd be cooking right next to you.

Oooh, I used to lie awake at night and see your face on the ceiling,
Ha, Ha, what a great feeling I have when I think of how you're gonna get yours,
At the end of the world, at the end of the world, oh at the end of the world,
At the end of the world, yes, at the end of the world.

Easter Song Lyrics

Here the bells ringing,
They're singing that you can be born again,
Here the bells ringing,
They're singing Christ is risen from the dead.
The angel up on the tombstone,
Said He has risen, just as He said,
Quickly now, go tell his disciples,
That Jesus Christ is no longer dead.

Joy to the word, He has risen, hallelujah,
He's risen, hallelujah,
He's risen, hallelujah.

Hear the bells ringing,
They're singing that you can be healed right now,
Hear the bells ringing, they're singing,
Christ, He will reveal it now,
The angels, they all surround us,
And they are ministering Jesus' power,
Quickly now, reach out and receive it,
For this could be your glorious hour.

Joy to the world, He has risen, hallelujah,
He's risen, hallelujah,
He's risen, hallelujah, hallelujah...

The angel up on the tombstone,
Said He has risen, just as He said,
Quickly now, go tell his disciples,
That Jesus Christ is no longer dead.

Joy to the world, He has risen, hallelujah,
He's risen, hallelujah,
He's risen, hallelujah, hallelujah

He'll Take Care Of The Rest Lyrics

You know it ain't no use, banging your head,
Up against that cold stone wall,
Cause nobody's perfect, except for the Lord,
And even the best bound to fall,
Remember He is de vine, and you are de branch,
He'd love to get you through it if you'd give Him a chance,
Just keep doing your best,
And pray that it's blessed,
And Jesus takes care of the rest.

Yes the Lord said that He'd take care of the rest, He's gonna do it,
He'll take care of the rest, He'll see you through it,
He'll take care of the rest, the devil blew it,
He'll take care of the, He'll take care of the rest.

Just think about Moses, in front of the burning bush, barefoot on the Holy ground,
You know, he must have been thinking, what's an old dude like me,
Gonna tell em all when I go down, go down Moses,
The Lord said, hey Moe, don't you worry about going down south,
I'll be saying every word that comes out of your mouth,
Just keep doing your best, and pray that it's blessed,
Hey Moe, I'll take care of the rest.

Yes the Lord said that He'd take care of the rest, he's gonna do it,
He'll take care of the rest, He'll see you through it,
He'll take care of the rest, oh, Pharaoh blew it,
He'll take care of the, He'll take care of the rest.
Just believe, and you'll receive, that comfort you need,
You just think about all those lonely people you know,
They've got everything they want, but they have empty souls,
Well, He'll take care of the, He'll take care of the,
He'll take care of the, care of the rest.

You just think about Noah, toting his umbrella,
When there wasn't a cloud in the sky,
All his neighbors would laugh at his pet giraffe,
And would snicker as he walked by,
But the Lord said, hey Noah, keep cool, just keep building that boat,
It's just a matter of time till they see who's gonna float,
You just keep doing your best, and pray that it's blessed,
Hey Noah, I'll take care of the rest, I'm the weatherman.

The Lord said that he'll take care of the rest, He's gonna do it,
He'll take care of the rest, He'll see you through it,
He'll take care of the rest, his neighbors blew it,
He'll take care of the rest, He's gonna do it, He's gonna do it,
He'll take care of the rest, only Jesus can see you through it,
He'll take care of the rest, yes, yes, yes,
He'll take care of the, He'll take care of the rest....

How Can They Live Without Jesus Lyrics

How can they live without Jesus?
How can they live without God's love?
How can they feel so at home down here,
When there's so much more up above?
Throwing away the things that matter,
They hold onto things that don't.
The world has gone crazy, but soon maybe,
A lot more are going to know.

For maybe they don't understand it,
Or maybe they just haven't heard.
Or maybe we're not doing all we can,
Living up to His Holy Word.
Cause phonies have come and wrongs been done,
Even killing in Jesus' name.
And if you've been burnt, here's what I've learned,
The Lord's not the one to blame.

For He's not just religion with steeples and bells,
Or a sales man who will sell you the things you just want to hear.
But His love was such, that he suffered so much,
To call some of us just to follow, follow.

So many laughing at Jesus,
While the funniest thing that He's done,
Is love this whole stubborn rebellious world,
While their hate for Him just goes on.
And love just like that will bring him back,
For the few He can call His friends.
The ones He's found true who've made it through,
Enduring until the end.
The one's He's found true, who've made it through,
Enduring until the end...

I Can't Believe It Lyrics

There is nothing new, I could give to you,
Just a life that's torn, waiting to be born.
Rivers overflow, friends may come and go,
But you've been by my side, with every tear I've cried.

Oh, I can't believe that you'd give everything for me,
I can't believe it no, I can't believe it no, no.
I know you never lied and so it's just my foolish pride,
That I just won't receive it yeah,
It's so hard to receive it in my heart and make the start with you.

Help me, help me now, I just don't know how,
You know, I've been so alone, please melt this heart of stone.
Lah, lah, lah, lah......

Oh, I can't believe that you'd give everything for me,
I can't believe it no, I can't believe it no, no.
I know you never lied and so I'm giving up my pride,
So I can receive it yeah,
I just want to receive it in my heart and make the start with you.
Lah, lah, lah....

I Don't Wanna Fall Away From You Lyrics

After all the things that you have shown me,
I'd be a fool to let them slip away,
In doing things I know I shouldn't do,
But I don't want to fall away from you, from you.

After all, I've only grieved your spirit,
And then I don't know why you stay with me.
But every time I fall your love comes through,
And I don't want to fall away from you.

When the light is gone, and good times are getting old,
There's no one left to count on, and all my friends are cold,
When I thirst for love oh Lord, you're a fountain to my soul,
My soul, my soul, oh Lord, my soul.

In a way my life is full of burdens,
But in a way you carry them from me, Jesus.
Cause no one understands the way you do,
And you know Lord, I don't want to fall away from you.
Well every day I pray to start anew,
Cause I don't want to fall away from you.
No Lord, I don't wanna fall away from you,
No Lord, I don't wanna fall away from you,
From you... Lord.

My Eyes Are Dry Lyrics

My eyes are dry, my faith is old,
My heart is hard, my prayers are cold,
And I know how I ought to be,
Alive to you, and dead to me.

Oh what can be done, for an old heart like mine,
Softer it up, with oil and wine.
The oil is You, Your Spirit of love,
Please wash me anew, in the wine of Your blood.

My eyes are dry, my faith is old,
My heart is hard, my prayers are cold,
And I know how I ought to be,
Alive to you, and dead to me.

No One Believes In Me Anymore Lyrics

Oh, my job keeps getting easier, as time keeps slipping away,
I can imitate your brightest light and make your night look just like day,
I put some truth in every lie, to tickle itching ears,
You know I'm drawing people just like flies, cause they like what they hear,
I'm gaining power by the hour, they're falling by the score,
You know, it's getting very simple now cause no one believe in me anymore.

Oh, heaven's just a state of mind, my books read on your shelf,
And have you heard that God is dead, I made that one up myself,
They dabble in magic spells, the get their fortunes read,
You know they heard the truth, but turned away and followed me instead,
I used to have to sneak around, but now they just open their doors,
You know, no ones watching for my tricks because no one believes in me anymore.

Everyone likes a winner, with my help, you're guaranteed to win,
And hey man, you're ain't no sinner, you've got the truth within,
And as your life slips by you believe the lie that you did it on your own,
But don't worry, I'll be there to help you share our dark eternal home.

Oh, my job keeps getting easier, as day slips into day,
The magazines, the newspapers, print every word I say,
This world is just my spinning top, it's all like childs-play,
You know, I dream that it will never stop, but I know it's not that way,
Still my work goes on and on, always stronger than before,
I'm gonna make it dark before the dawn since no one believes in me anymore,
Well now I used to have to sneak around, but now they just open their doors,
You know, no one watches for my tricks since no one believes in me anymore,
Well I'm gaining power by the hour, they're falling by the score,
You know, it's getting very easy now since no one believes in me anymore,
No one believes in me anymore, no one believe in me anymore.

Soften Your Heart Lyrics

So many times I've tried to tell you,
But I don't think you've been listening.
There's nothing I wanna try and sell you,
Cause his love is free.
You're so proud of saying you're a seeker,
But why are you searching in the dark?
You won't find a thing until you soften your heart.
Lah, lah, lah....

The message is oh so very simple,
You gotta be like a child to see.
Cause Jesus said let the little children,
Come unto me.
You try to make things too complicated,
But you really don't have to be so smart.
You won't learn a thing until you soften your heart.
Lah, lah, lah...

Well if just this once, I could show you your empty life, I know,
You would follow Him right now.
But I know it sounds just too good to be true,
But if He lives in you, you'll never die, you'll never die,
You'll live forever.
You'll never die, you'll never die, take care of forever, now.
Lah, lah, lah....

You tell everyone to keep on smiling,
Your outlook on life is so positive,
But deep down inside you're look for a reason to live,
Like everyone else you're scared of dying,
But the power of death has been blown apart.
And you'll live forever, if you softer your heart.
Lah, lah, lah....

You'll never die, you'll never die, you'll live forever,
You'll never die, you'll never die, take care of forever now.
Lah, lah, lah....
You'll never die, you'll never die, you'll live forever,
You'll never die!

Stained Glass Lyrics

We are like windows, stained with colors of the rainbow,
Set in a darkened room, till the bridegroom comes to shining through,
Then the colors fall around our feet, over those we meet,
Covering all the gray that we see,
Rainbow colors of assorted hues, come exchange your blues,
For His love that you see shining through me.

We are His daughters and sons,
We are the colorful ones,
We are the kids of the King,
Rejoice in everything.

My colors grow so dim,
When I start to fall away from Him,
Then up comes the strongest wind
That begins to blow me back into his arms again,
And the colors fall around my feet, over those I meet,
Changing all the gray that I see,
Rainbow colors of the Risen Son, reflect the one,
The one who came to set us all free.

We are His daughters and sons,
We are the colorful ones,
We are the kids of the King,
Rejoice in everything.

We are like windows, stained with colors of the rainbow,
No longer set in a darkened room,
Cause the bridegroom wants to shine through you,
No longer set in a darkened room,

Cause the bridegroom wants to shine through you.

The Victor Lyrics

Swallowed into Earth's dark womb,
Death has triumphed, that's what they say,
But try to hold Him in the tomb,
The Son of Life, rose on the third day.

Just look, the gates of hell, they're falling,
Crumbling from the inside out,
He's bursting through the walls with laughter,
Listen to the Angels shout!
It is finished, He has done it,
Life conquer death, Jesus Christ, has won it!

His plan of battle, you know, it fooled them all,
They led Him off to prison to die,
But as He entered Hades Hall,
He broke those hellish chains with a cry.
Just listen to those demons screaming,
See Him bruise the serpent's head,
The prisoners of Hell, He's redeeming,
All the power of death is dead!

It is finished, He has done it,
Life conquer death, Jesus Christ, has won it!
Just look, the gates of hell, they're falling,
Crumbling from the inside out,
He's bursting through the walls with laughter,
Listen to the Angels shout!
It is finished, He has done it,
Life conquer death, Jesus Christ, has won it!

To Obey Is Better Than Sacrifice Lyrics

To obey is better than sacrifice,
I don't need your money, I want your life.
And I hear you say that I'm coming back soon,
But you act like I'll never return.

Well you speak of grace and my love so sweet,
How you thrive on milk, but reject my meat,
And I can't help weeping of how it will be,
If you keep on ignoring my words.

Well you pray to prosper and succeed,
But your flesh is something I just can't feed.

To obey is better than sacrifice.
I want more than Sunday and Wednesday nights,
Cause if you can't come to me every day,
Then don't bother coming at all.
Lah, lah,lah....

To obey is better than sacrifice.
I want hearts of fire, not your prayers of ice.
And I'm coming quickly, to give back to you,
According to what you have done,
According to what you have done,
According to what you have done.

Trials Turned To Gold Lyrics

He's brought me here, where things are clear, and trials turn to gold.
He shared with me, His victory, He won in days of old.
Oh Lord, I don't deserve, the riches of your word,
But You've changed my filthy rags to linen white as snow.

The view from here is nothing near to what it is for You.
I tried to see Your plan for me, but I only acted like I knew.
Oh Lord forgive the times, I tried to read your mind.
Cause you said if I'd be still, then I would hear your voice.

My Lord, my King, my urge to sing and praise the things above.
No words can say the glorious way you changed me with your love.

He's brought me low, so I could now the way to reach the heights.
To forsake my dreams, my self esteem and give up all my rights.
With each one that I lay down, a jewel's placed in my crown.
Cause His love, the things above, is all we'll ever need.
He's brought me here, where things are clear, and trials turn to gold.

When I Hear The Praises Start Lyrics

My son, My son, why are you striving,
You can't add one thing to what's been done for you,
I did it all while I was dying,
Rest in your faith, my peace will come to you.

For when I hear the praises start, I want to rain upon you,
Blessings that will fill your heart, I see no stain upon you,
Because you are My child and know me, to Me you're only holy,
Nothing that you've done remains, only what you do for Me.

My child, My child, why are you weeping,
You will not have to wait forever,
That day and that hour is in My keeping,
The day I'll bring you into Heaven.

For when I hear the praises start, my child, I want to rain upon you,
Blessing that will fill your heart, I see no stain upon you,
Because you are My child and you know me, to me you're only holy,
Nothing that you've done remains, only what you do in Me.

My precious bride, the day is nearing,
When I'll take you in My arms and hold you,
I know there are so many things that you've been hearing,
But you just hold on to what I have told you.

For when I hear the praises start, my bride, I want to rain upon you,
Blessings that will fill your heart, I see no stain upon you,
Because you are My child, and you know Me, to me you're only holy,
Nothing that you've done will remain, only what you do for me.

You Put This Love In My Heart Lyrics

I found it hard to believe someone like you cared for me,
You put this love in my heart.
I tried but could not refuse, you gave me no time to lose,
You put this love in my heart.

I want to know where the bad feelings go,
When I'm depressed and I get down so low,
And then I see you coming to me and it's alright.

I want to tell you right now, I'm not afraid to say how,
You put this love in my heart.
There are sometimes when I doubt, but you always find me out
You put this love in my heart.

Cause when I see all that you've done for me,
It's hard to doubt, I just have to believe,
Cause you followed and proved it all of your
Life.

Well I know the loneliness I had before,
Is gone now, I'll never feel it anymore,
Cause your love has released me from all that's in my past,
And I know I can believe you,
When you say I'll never be forsaken, Your love is gonna
Last.

There's so much more I should say, if I could just find a way,
You put this love in my heart,
Is this real or a dream, I feel so good I could scream,
You put this love in my heart.

I want to know where the bad feelings go,
When I'm depressed and I get down so low,
And then I see you coming to me and it's alright,
You put this love in my heart,
You put this love in my heart,
You put this love in my heart.

Your Love Broke Through Lyrics

Like a foolish dreamer, trying to build a highway to the sky,
All my hopes would come tumbling down, and I never knew just why,
Until today, when you pulled away the clouds that hung like curtains on my eyes,
Well I've been blind all these wasted years and I though I was so wise,
But then you took me by surprise.

Like waking up from the longest dream, how real it seemed,
Until your love broke through,
I've been lost in a fantasy, that blinded me,
Until your love broke through.

All my life I've been searching for that crazy missing part,
And with one touch, you just rolled away the stone that held my heart,
And now I see that the answer was as easy, as just asking you in,
And I am so sure I could never doubt your gentle touch again,
It's like the power of the wind.

Like waking up from the longest dream, how real it seemed,
Until your love broke through,
I've been lost in a fantasy, that blinded me,
Until your love, until your love, broke through.
