You Are My All

When I felt really torn, not sure of what I needed,

To the right and left I turned,

And yet I never found it.

Then I heard a still small voice, saying,

"Come, I have what you need."

So then I struggled, and made the choice

To follow You, wherever You would lead,

So now...

When I don't know what to do,

I will turn to You.

You're the answer I'm looking for,

You are my Lord.

And when I don't know where to turn,

I still know what I've learned,

That You are my strength, my comfort,

My song,

You are my all...

The Elite - Lyrics

Verse 1:
There’s a group of people behind our view, the Bilderberg elitist group.
They plan the future and rewrite the past.
They even control the price of gas.
But this is nothing new, it’s the way it’s been. In 1776 a group of men
Called the Illuminati laid some evil plans
To control the world and enslave man. (Chorus)
Elite, elite, nothing can satisfy their greed.
They think nothing’s too bad, but they’ll always be sad
Because power is not what they need.
Verse 2:
With propaganda on the news they want to control our thoughts and views.
They tell us what they want us to hear,
But things are not always the way they appear.
And in the public schools they have their ways of washing the students’ and teacher’s brains.
That’s why you think I’m crazy as I say this to you,
But I tell you I’m speaking the truth. (Chorus)
Verse 3:
You cannot escape their realm of control in the church building or in the school.
The merchants of earth unite with the beast. The merchants in prophecy
Are the Elite.
Oh, they work hand in hand with the papacy,
Yes I said it, so God help me.
Their Jesuit army can take my life away,
But God’s in control, so that’s okay. (Chorus)
Verse 4:
And not to mention Hollywood, which doesn’t do us any good.
They just distract us with empty things,
And ruin the lives of celebrities.
We are constantly wasting our time, and all the while we think we’re fine.
We say it’s okay; it’s just T.V.
But what we behold is what we’ll be. (Chorus)
Verse 5:
We used to live in a free country, we call it the land of liberty.
But now, you see, they have us fooled.
They’ve given us majority rule.
And that is not the way it’s supposed to be! If conviction comes to you or me,
We may not be able to follow through,
Because it’s not what most people do. (Chorus)
Verse 6:
So you better give your mind to them, or else they’ll take it without your consent.
They push us with their philosophies of Nietzsche, Hegel, and Hippocrates.
We are taught to think that nothing’s wrong,
The earth still turns, and life goes on.
They say, "Truth and lies are all the same.
Believe in yourself, and feel no shame." (Chorus)
Verse 7:
Hey Baby Boomers, do you see all the change that’s taking place in this new age?
The young disrespect authority, their mindset is, "What’s in it for me?"
Just look at all the ways we get entertained.
We kill each other in the video games,
And we’re addicted to our favorite shows.
Our purpose in life we don’t even know. (Ending)
ENDING: We try to escape reality,
By finding excitement in anything.
For happiness we vainly search
If we’re only looking to this earth...
Lord, many people don’t know what to do.
Show them that all they need is You.
You are able to lead them through.
Evil may reign on earth for an hour,
But You are the One with the saving power.
We don’t have to face anything alone.
You still reign on Your eternal throne.
You still reign on Your eternal throne.

Cast Your Care - Lyrics

Cast Your Care
Cast your care upon Him, for He careth for you.
Trials come and lay you low, but He will lift you up.
Humble yourself therefore under the mighty hand of God
That He may exalt you in due time.
Verse 1:
Earthly friends may fail you
And leave you on the ground, and you don’t know where to turn.
But Jesus is your Friend, and He’ll never let you down
And when you come to Him, you will you learn
That He loves you and knows you better than you know yourself,
And He wants to take you in His arms and show you what to do:
Verse 2:
Hard times may come,
And you want encouragement, but you don’t find what you need.
Just take some time for God, and tell Him of your cares.
When you listen to Him you will see
That He loves you and knows you, better than your closest friends,
And they’re not with you all the time, but He is always there:
Verse 3:
No matter what may happen;
When disappointments come; remember this now, my friend
That Jesus has a purpose, and He will lead you through.
God’s plan will show in the end
For He loves you and knows you, enough to know what’s best,
And when you pour it out to Him, then He will give you rest.
Through all the tribulation, He is by your side.
Through all the battles, He will help you fight.
You need battle for victory. You need victory for strength.
The battles show your weakness, and you’re strong when you’re weak.
It’s then that you’re more than a conqueror, through Him who loved you.
Humble yourself therefore, under the mighty hand of God,
That He may exalt you in due time.
So cast your care upon Him, for He careth for you.
Trials come and lay you low, but He will lift you up.

Not By Sight - Lyrics

Not By Sight
Verse 1: I know God has a work for me, a purpose for my life.
And I know He’s been preparing me, through sunshine and through strife.
I know I’m in His hand, and I know He has a plan. I’ve got to help this world in need.
I want everyone to hear my voice, and because of me to make a choice.
Give me a megaphone and I will shout – but that’s not what it’s about.
Verse 2: You know, I’ve been thinking recently, that maybe I’ve been wrong.
It could be that, but then you see, I just keep holding on.
It is my one desire, my all-consuming fire – How can I know it isn’t mine?
Just set me free and I will fly away. Yes, I am ready! Just make a way.
Open the door and I will lift my wings – but will it honor my King?
Verse 3: It’s like I’m in a hallway, with many different doors.
I’m looking for a certain one, that’s why I ask the Lord,
"What will become of me? Right now I want to see. Why does it seem the door is closed?
The doors are open but it can’t be right. I must get out of here and get a life.
Show me the way and I will follow You. What do You want me to do?
Verse 4: Yeah, okay, it must be true – there is a place for me.
And yes, I have a work to do. But is it what I think?
I need a vision, though, to show me where to go. Please show me where my goal should be.
Lord, time is slipping out of my hands. What am I waiting for, my great big plans?
I see I must start working for You now – just show me what and how.
Verse 5: Lord, I don’t know when You will come, but time is precious, still.
What’s most important to get done? I want to do Your will.
Please show me what I need, show me what I ought to be. Right where I am, work out Your purpose.
Jesus, I’m letting go of my own plans. I will be ready, though, if You command.
Today I’ll do what You want me to do. And I will listen to You.
Ending: And you shall hear a word behind You, saying, "This is the way, walk in the truth.
When you turn to the left and to the right, just walk by faith, not by sight."

Pick Me Up Again - Lyrics

Pick Me Up Again
Verse 1: Father, take control; heal my weary soul.
I’m tired of trying on my own.
You are my only hope. I cannot break these ropes
That hold me down.
Jesus take my wicked heart. You are the One I’m seeking.
I’m trying hard to do my part. I fall before You weeping.
God, how can I be so vile?! I’ve walked this path for quite a while.
Loose me from my cruel bonds of sin. Take it all – cleanse my heart,
And pick me up again.
Verse 2: After all I know, how can I be so low?
I’m feeling my weakness, O my God.
My heart is so estranged, and I do not want to change –
What can be done?
I have no power of my own to change my wrong desires.
If left alone, they’d burn my soul, just like a raging fire.
Pour Your water on my flames, take away my sin and shame.
I’ve fallen and I’m humble now. Look at me, I’m at Your feet –
Now pick me up again.
Bridge: Lord, I know my thoughts need to be right,
For thoughts will lead to actions.
So let my heart’s meditations be pleasing in Your sight.
Verse 3: Mom said the other day, when skies were looking gray,
"You don’t have to pick yourself up."
And I know it’s true; I put my trust in You.
You’ll pick me up.
When I struggle with myself, only You can help me.
In my past, You’ve been my help, no matter what befell me.
So by Your grace I will get through. With all my heart I’ll cling to You.
And in this battle, we will win. Moving on, I’ll sing this song:
You’ll pick me up again.

To Honor Him - Lyrics

Verse 1:
In everything I do I want to honor You.
Wherever I go, I just want to know
That I’m there to honor You.
My heart has been so vile, and desperate all the while
To glorify my name. But now I feel ashamed. And I need a change in my heart.
Lord, I just don’t want to work for You with my own honor in view.
I dream my dreams, and then it seems I’ve run ahead of You.
Lord, take my heart, my pride and all. Help me take heed lest I fall.
Teach me to honor You.
Verse 2:
At times I get caught up in all the things I love.
My zeal can be so strong, and yet my motives wrong,
And I forget to honor Him.
But Christ takes me within, and shows my inner sin; revealing my mistake
So gently that I break, and I see I’m not what I thought.
You see, we need to work for Christ by taking one day at a time.
We find there’s beauty in our daily duties, when we do them with all our might.
It is our calling; we must be true. There’s nothing too small for us to do –
If it’s done to honor Him.
Verse 3:
The Lord is well pleased when we’re faithful in the least.
Our duties we embrace, no matter what our place.
We are called to honor Him.
Our characters grow strong as humbly we go on in singleness of heart, enjoying our part
In His plan, for His glory’s sake.
You see, the pattern for our lives is found in Jesus Christ.
Do you see the glory in the humble story of His self-denying life?
He humbly went on to carry His cross. When we do that for Him it’s not a loss
As we live to honor Him. We are honored to honor Him.

The Lord's Day - Lyrics

The Lord’s Day
Beginning: Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Six days you shall work, but the seventh is the Sabbath.
In it you shall do no work, for it is the Lord’s day,
And He sanctified it, to spend the day with you.
Verse 1: When God gave us a Sabbath rest, He did it for our very best –
Not to be a burden for a weary soul to bear.
He made that day for our own good. If we would spend it as we should,
We would know the blessing in spending the day with Him.
Verse 2: When God had finished all His work, and making man upon this earth,
He was our Creator, and He loved the man He made.
He rested on that seventh day. ‘Twas the foundation that He laid,
To establish in our hearts our loving Creator’s part.
Verse 3: Throughout each age there have been some
Who kept the precepts of the One
Whom they chose as Leader, as their life, their all in all.
From year to year and age to age, we know our Lord will never change.
He’s the way, the truth, the life; we can now in Him abide.
Verse 4: But slowly we forgot His day, absorbed in all our work and play,
And forgot our Maker. But He still remembered us.
And now He calls to you and me to lay our burdens at His feet.
Will you hear His loving call, "Come and spend the day with Me?"
Bridge: The day of rest is the final test. You must choose the truth or the lie.
But if it’s God you choose, you have nothing to lose,
For God’s truth will never die – no, the truth can never die.
Ending: Jesus, help me be like You in mind and character.
Lord, I must walk with You now, then I may be Yours forever.
Lord, prepare Your people. Lord, our hearts and minds renew.
Then, forever, we will spend the eternal day with You.
