I'LL MEET YOU ON THE MOUNTAIN

Chorus • I’ll meet you on the mountain ~ Leave the shadows far behind ~ I’ll meet you on the mountain ~ Come with me and you will find ~ That the sun is always shining and the air renews your mind
I’ll meet you on the mountain of the Lord • In the valley mighty giants caused my heart to live in fear ~ Shades of doubt moved in to haunt me ~ In the night their taunts I hear ~ But through all the dark depression my sweet Savior’s voice range clear ~ “Move my child up to the mountain, I have called you out of here” • Chorus • So I followed His scarred footprints holding to my Savior’s hand ~ And I hear his voice familiar saying “Child come claim the land” ~ Move your camp up to the mountain high above the vale of tears ~ Nothing there can make your heart break when you see it all from here • Chorus • I’ll meet you on the mountain of the Lord ~ I’ll meet you on the mountain of the Lord (Buddy Mullins, William J. Gaither, Gloria Gaither, Mark Lowry, Milton Smith, Wesley Pritchard ~ Gaither Publishing)

 

WHAT WILL I WEAR?

What will I wear when approaching God’s throne? ~ No robe of pure white have I earned on my own ~ And no perfect thing will He find in me there ~ But I have considered just what I will wear ~ No tattered intentions, no rags of regret ~ No sadness when leaving this old world and yet ~ No righteousness in me, I come as I am ~ To claim through His mercy the blood of the Lamb • Chorus • I’ll join heaven’s chorus in praising the Son ~ Who sought me and bought me and said I could come ~ A song of salvation my soul will declare ~ His garment of gladness, that’s what I will wear • No faded old fabric of sin and remorse ~ Will I bring to the strand of that bright golden shore ~ His robe of redemption, the gift of His grace ~ That’s what I will wear when I see Jesus’ face •Chorus • His robe of redemption, its beauty so rare ~ His garment of gladness, that’s what I will wear ~ What I will wear (Deborah Bailey; Christian Taylor Music (BMI), a div. of Daywind Music (admin by ICG)

 

NOT THE SAME

Chorus • Not the same ever since the Savior found me ~ Not the same since He turned my life around ~ My sins have been covered by His blood ~ Praise His name I’m not the same • Old things have passed away behold all things are new ~ I’m a new creation, forgiven through and through ~ My past has been erased through Jesus I am free ~ And by His saving grace there’s been a change in me • Chorus • I will not be conformed to this world and its ways ~ He renews my spirit with mercy every day ~ He gives me peace of mind and life abundantly ~ I will not be turning back I’ve tasted victory • Chorus • Not the same ~ I’m not the same ~ Since he turned my life around ~ My sins have been covered by His blood ~ Praise His name I’m not, I am not the same ~ Praise Him I’m not the same

 

WHEN GRANDPA BOWED HIS HEAD

His formal education stopped at seventh grade ~ That didn’t seem to matter much when grandpa prayed ~ You wouldn’t call him eloquent, but when grandpa said “Amen” ~ You somehow got the feeling he’d been talking to a friend • Grandpa worked his fingers to the bone ~ He had a faith like none I’ve ever known ~ I can’t remember every prayer of grandpa’s that I’ve heard ~ But the one that he was talking to hung on his every word • Chorus • When grandpa bowed his head you could tell someone was listening ~ “Give us our daily bread” were more than words to him ~ Here on earth he may not have drawn crowds with what he said ~ But all of heaven gathered ‘round to listen ~ When grandpa bowed his head • Every Sunday grandpa could be found ~ Preaching at a little church in town ~ His sermons weren’t the kind you’d find in some anthology ~ But grandpa’s prayers are written down in heaven’s history • Chorus • I know there’s preachers reaching thousands on TV ~ But they can’t reach as far as grandpa could from on his knees ~ Sitting at his table, I miss hearing him say grace ~ Grandpa doesn’t pray to Jesus now, ‘cause they’re talking face to face • Chorus (Words & Music Michael Shetler)

 

WHEN GOD HAS ANOTHER PLAN

Forsaken by his brothers, he didn’t fit the scene ~ Being made a slave was not what Joseph dreamed ~ The coat of many colors was stained with blood and lies ~ But from this divine appointment a ruler would arise • Chorus • When God has another plan, walk on and just say yes ~ When God has another plan, be assured that He knows best ~ If all your dreams are shattered, rest in His sufficient grace ~ We don’t have to understand, when God has another plan • Alone and broken hearted, questions fill your mind ~ Changes can be hard that come by God’s design ~ But if you could see tomorrow with a view from Heaven’s Throne ~ Every unexpected struggle has led you closer home • Chorus • Oh, if all your dreams are shattered, rest in His sufficient grace ~ You don’t have to understand, noo, when God has another plan (Daryl K. Williams, Amy Shellem, Chris White Music/BMI, Christian Taylor Music/BMI)

 

MORE THAN AMAZING

How many days have I seen sorrow? ~ How many nights have I cried? ~ How many friends have been lost to tomorrow? ~ How many loved ones have died? ~ More than I ever imagined ~ More than I thought I would see ~ So more of His grace each day He sends to me • Chorus • That’s more than amazing ~ It’s unbelievable ~ Never ending and free ~ His grace is so much more than amazing to me •
How many times have I strayed from the pathway? ~ How many tales have I spun? ~ How many words have been taken the wrong way? ~ How many wrongs have I done? ~ More than I care to remember ~ More than I thought there could be ~ Yet more of His grace each day He sends to me • Chorus • More of His grace each day He sends to me • Chorus (Woody Wright ~ Sesac / Gaither Publishing)

 

OVER AND OVER

I’ve stood on the bank of a wide raging river ~ Trusting that I’d get across ~ I’ve made my way through some valleys and deserts ~ Believing I’d never get lost ~ I’ve been at the foot of what felt like Mt. Everest ~ Knowing I’d have the strength for the climb ~ Cause through every trial, each test and temptation ~ One thing is sure every time • Chorus • Over and over, again and again ~ God is faithful ~ Over and over, again and again ~ Through it all He’s made me able ~ To stand and survive, to come through alive ~ When it sure looked like I couldn’t win ~ Jesus is with me, so I’ll claim the victory ~ Over and over again • If you ask me why I have no hesitation ~ God does what He says He will do ~ I’d simply say every battle has taught me ~ There’s nothing He won’t help me through ~ So why should I dwell on the hardships and struggles ~ When I look just beyond them I see ~ The way this will end is with great celebration ~ And deep in my heart I believe • Chorus • To stand and survive, to come through alive ~ When it sure looked like I couldn’t win ~ Jesus is with me, so I’ll claim the victory ~ Over and over, over and over, over and over again (R.Smith / S.Smith ~ New Spring/CCTB Music (admin by Brentwood-Benson Music Publishing)

 

DADDY HUNG THE MOON

We made the perfect pair, the best of friends, Daddy and me ~ I’d be walking on air every time he’d smile and say he was proud of me ~ We said our prayers, he’d tuck me in and when I’d look in his eyes ~ I knew his love could fill an ocean and light up an endless sky • Chorus • Daddy hung the moon, out-shined the stars ~ Placed a song inside my heart ~ Daddy hung the moon ~ Oh I know it must be true ~ His smile could light the world of this green-eyed daddy’s girl ~ God may have made the stars, but daddy hung the moon • His favorite words were “I love you” and he always said there was nothing I couldn’t do ~ There’s a world of hurt out there, little boys and girls who’ve never known love like I do ~ But if I had one wish, I’d wish to make it right ~ Oh, I’d give them all a daddy and make him just like mine • Chorus • ‘Cause Daddy hung the moon, out-shined the stars ~ Placed a song inside my heart ~ Daddy hung the moon ~ Oh I know it must be true ~ His smile could light the world of this green-eyed daddy’s girl ~ God made the world in seven days, the sun to shine and the clouds for rain ~ But when He made the sky He saved one part for a little girl who knew in her heart • Daddy hung the moon, out-shined the stars ~ Placed a song inside my heart ~ Daddy hung the moon ~ Oh I know it must be true ~ His smile still lights my world and I’m still a daddy’s girl ~ God may have made the stars but daddy hung the moon (Westly and Mark Willett ~ Bro-N-Sis Music, Inc. / Copyright control (non-HFA)

 

WHO WILL BE JESUS?

He came home from work last night to find that she is gone ~ Now he’s spending his first Sunday sittin’ in the pew alone ~ There are whispers all around him, his heart breaks in two ~ He’s wondering who will reach out and help him make it through • Chorus • Who will be Jesus to him? ~ Who’ll show the love that restores him again? ~ He doesn’t need a judge, he needs a friend ~ Who will be Jesus to him? • She has the reputation like the woman at the well ~ The only love she ever knew was the kind she buys and sells ~ But her thirsty heart is searchin’ for a love that would be true ~ The Savior cries for her to see himself in me and you • Chorus • Who will be Jesus to her? ~ Who’ll show the love that’s commanded in His word? ~ Will she see in us the mighty God we serve? ~ Who will be Jesus to her? • Wounded people everywhere ~ And when they look at us, do they see Jesus there? • Chorus • Who will be Jesus to them? ~ Who’ll show the love that restores them again? ~ Oh they do not need a judge, they need a friend ~ Who will be Jesus to them? ~ Who will be Jesus to them?

WOUNDED SOLDIER

You have fallen ~ Your heart is broken ~ You never thought you’d see it end this way ~ But if you’ll listen ~ Above the battle ~ You’ll hear an old familiar voice ~ Calling your name • Chorus • Wounded soldier ~ It’s not over ~ For the sun’s about to shine upon your battlefield ~ You still have work to do ~ Get up and watch the Lord come through ~ He still believes in you ~ Wounded soldier • Other voices talked about you ~ Unkind words you thought you’d never live to hear ~ But there’s another voice inside you ~ It says the fields are still white to harvest ~ And your mission is clear • Chorus (Rodney Griffin ~ 2005 Songs of Greater Vision / BMI)

 

THERE’S NO SUCH THING

He said “Put nothing before me” ~ He is the one and only one ~ Houses, family and money ~ Just good things when it’s all said and done • Chorus • There’s no such as the next best thing to Jesus ~ There’s no such thing as the next best thing to the heavenly home above ~ There’s no such thing as the next best thing to free us ~ There’s no such thing as the next best thing to love • With Him there’s no imitation ~ Just real love flowing from on high ~ Press on in your situation ~ ‘Cause you are the apple of His eye • Chorus • He’s now makin’ preparation ~ Construction of jasper pearl and gold ~ Heaven is more than an illusion ~ Truly the half has not been told • Chorus • There’s no such thing as the next best thing to free us ~ There’s no such thing as the next best thing to love (Phil Cross & Mark Lanier ~ Bridge Building Music and Mark Lanier Music)

 

WHEN I GET TO THE END OF THE WAY

The sands have been washed in the footprints ~ Of the stranger on Galilee’s shore ~ And the voice that subdued the rough billows ~ Will be heard in Judea no more ~ But the path of that lone Galilean ~ With joy I will follow today ~ And the toils of the road will seem nothing ~ When I get to the end of the way ~ And the toils of the road will seem nothing ~ When I get to the end of the way ~ There are so many hills to climb upward ~ I often am longing for rest ~ But He who appoints me my pathway ~ Knows just what is needful and best ~ I know in His word He hath promised ~ That my strength, it will be as my day ~ And the toils of the road will seem nothing ~ When I get to the end of the way ~ And the toils of the road will seem nothing ~ When I get to the end of the way ~ When I get to the end of the way (Charlie D. Tillman ~ Life Gate Music, arr. (admin by Gaither Copyright Management) / BMI)

 

BETTER FARTHER ON

As we travel thru the desert ~ Storms beset us by the way ~ But beyond the river Jordan ~ Lies a field of endless day • Chorus • Farther on, still go farther ~ Count the milestones one by one ~ Jesus will forsake you never ~ It is better farther on • Oh, my brother are you weary ~ Of the roughness of the way? ~ Does your strength begin to fail you ~ And your vigor to decay? • Chorus • At my grave, oh still be singing ~ Tho’ you weep for one that’s gone ~ Sing it as we once did sing it ~ “It is better farther on” • Chorus • It is better farther on (Anonymous)
