    Stand By Me - Singin' Over Yonder

    • Lyrics
    Words and Music by:
    Marty Funderburk, Joel Lindsey
     
    Verse:
    There's nothing quite so dear to me, As old time four part harmony, From those yellowed hymnal pages, Songs about the Rock of Ages, I've sung of sweetness by and by in that bright land beyond the sky, But these days I can hardly wait, to stroll on through those pearly gates

    Chorus:
    There's gonna be singin' over yonder, That'll make the angels wonder, If they ever really knew how to sing, When they hear the saints together, sing a song that they could never sing, Because it is the melody of the redeemed, Then the host of Heaven will join the forgiven, Worshipping the King of Kings, So if you got a reservation, What a joyous celebration, you'll be singin' over yonder with me

    Verse:
    I can almost hear that angel band, Marching right through Gloryland, With the ones who've gone before us, Now a part of Heaven's chorus, They're playing all my favorite songs, I can't wait to sing along so I'll rehearse while here below, Until it's time for me to go

    • Lyrics
    Words and Music by:
    Dewey Belknap, Rupert Cravens
     
    Verse:
    Look around you dear neighbor, In these times which we live, At the things you can see here today, It won't be long till Gabriel his trumpet shall sound, And the Lord comes to take his bride away

    Chorus:
    Well I wanna go back, back to the Bible, I wanna see old, old time revival, I wanna see people kneel at an old time altar to pray, I wanna see more camp meeting salvation, I wanna see saints, saints headed for Heaven, I wanna go back, back to the old time Christian way

    Verse:
    If your life brother sister, is not what it should be Jesus saves, He'll forgive you today, You can have peace from heaven down deep in your soul, Just go back to the old time Christian way

    Stand By Me - Calvary Answers For Me

    • Lyrics
    Words and Music by:
    Joel Lindsey
     
    Verse:
    Satan just cowers, To think of the power he lost, When the Cross had its day, Gone are the mornings, When fear without warning, Would win and again have its way, Now when Satan reminds me of things I regret, I bring up Calvary lest he forgets

    Chorus:
    High on the mountain of sorrow and shame, Grace signed my pardon as Christ took the blame, When I'm called to answer for my history, Calvary answers for me, Calvary answers for me

    Verse:
    I am now under, The beautiful wonder of grace, That erased all my past, I feel the heartbeat of mercy inside me, And now I have found joy at last, I live in freedom that chains cannot bind, And I won't look back at what I've left behind

    • Lyrics
    Words and Music by:
    Dwight Liles, John Darin Rowsey
     
    Verse:
    Some sweet morning, I'm gonna see that city, Set on a firm foundation, Laid by the hand of God, I've got loved ones awaiting, And I'm anticipating, yes I am, But between here and there, If I get happy, please don't think I'm odd

    Chorus:
    I can't wait for Heaven, I've gotta praise Him now, I can't wait for a golden street, underneath my feet, To shout His name out loud, He's made my life worth living, He's never let me down, I can't wait for Heaven, I've gotta praise Him now

    Verse:
    I've seen Him turn a heartache, Into a shout of rejoicing, You wouldn't believe all the blessings. He showers down along my way, I won't wait no never, Till that sweet forever, no,  Cause there's a million good reasons, To praise Him every single day

    (Repeat Chorus)

    • Lyrics
    Words and Music by:
    Belinda Smith, Sue C Smith
     
    Verse:
    Blinded by her tears, She didn't recognize, The Lord she loved was standing right before her eyes, Then He said her name, And the moment that she heard, A flame was lit within her that flowed out in these words

    Chorus:
    I have seen the Lord, I can't keep it to myself, I'll testify, That He's alive, What a glorious news to tell, My Savior lives, I have seen the Lord

    Verse:
    How can I do less, Than share it now with you, The Lord I love is risen, I know that it's true, There's an empty grave, And this heart of mine believes, The resurrection story has given life to me

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Tag:
    I have seen the Cross, The blood, the nails, the crown, I have seen them take His lifeless body down, I have seen the sun set on all my hopes and dreams, Oh, but let me tell you what these eyes of faith have seen

    There is a city (city built four square) That is built four square (city built four square) Some glorious morning (I'm gonna go there), I'm gonna go there, Fifteen hundred miles on either side, It's just a high as it is wide, I'm going to a city that is built four square

    Stand By Me - The God of Today

    • Lyrics
    Words and Music by:
    Marty Funderburk, Joel Guinness

    Verse:
    Moses was leading God's children out, But he faced the Red Sea and an ocean of doubt, Then God did what no one dreamed He would do, He parted the waters and they passed safely through, When Daniel was thrown to the lions that day, God sent His angels and they kept Daniel safe, Now I love to read those stories of old, But the half's not been told

    Chorus:
    For the God of the past, Is the God of today, If He did it back then, He'll do it again, He forever remains the same, So trust in His unchanging power, And follow Him come what may, For the God of the past, Is the God of today

    Verse:
    If there is a sea of doubt you can't cross, And the enemy tells you that all hope is lost, Remember what God did just yesterday, He's still on the throne and He'll still make a way, When lions of fear start to rise up and roar, He will protect you cause He's done it before, God is still God, He's faithful and true, And He cares about you

    • Lyrics
    Words and Music by:
    Phil Johnson, C Aaron Wilburn
     
    Verse:
    We could all get together, Talk about the weather, And what we think it's gonna do,  We could look at the sky, And try to figure out why, And state our point of view, But we waste the gift of precious time, Cause the weather's gonna change come rain or shine, And the wisdom of man, ain't worth a dime

    Chorus:
    Let's talk about Jesus, Amen, Lets talk about Jesus, Amen, I know we've told that story before, But I wanna hear that story once more, So let's talk about Jesus, Amen

    Verse:
    Let's have a conversation about salvation, And how I'm not the man I used to be, There's not a doubt, Folks counted me out, Till His hand rescued me, Old man death said, "You're the one that I want", Then God said "Not yet you don't", And thanks to Him I'm singing this song

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Tag:
    Oh He's walked...He's walked, With me...with me, Through all these years, And in my time...my time, Of need...of need, He's always been right there for me, He's my Lord...my Lord, He's my healer...healer, My friend, He's my redeemer, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen

    Words and Music by:
    Joel Lindsey, Ernie Haase

    Verse:
    Now more than ever, I feel Heaven pulling at me, My bags are all packed, But I'm not quite ready to leave, Oh I'm not afraid, I'm not scared, It's hard to describe, I just wish the whole world could feel what I'm feeling inside

    Chorus:
    Cause when I hold the hand of an old trusted friend, This is Heaven to me, And when I see a smile on the face of a child, This is Heaven to me, So Lord, if you don't mind, I'd like a little more time, Cause there are songs that I still want to sing, There is laughter and tears, But I sure like it hear, Sometimes this is Heaven to me

    Verse:
    I'm caught in between this world, And the world still to come, And I'm tired from the race, That I've tried to faithfully run, I don't belong to this world, I'm just passing through, But don't tell me goodbye, Cause I've still got some livin' to do

    Had it not been for a place called Mt Calvary, Had it not been for the old rugged cross, Had it not been for a man called Jesus, Then forever my soul would be lost

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Then forever my soul would be lost

    Glory To His Name - God Made a Way

    • Lyrics
    Words and Music by:
    JD Sumner
     
    Verse:
    I am going to a city far beyond the sky, I have made my preparations for that home on high, My soul was bought at Calvary by the Fathers only son, And He has my mansion ready when my work is done.

    Chorus:
    God made a way (made a way for me) Beyond that crystal sea, He's coming back (coming back someday), Gonna take me home to stay, I'll live forever (live forever more) All along that golden shore, Oh what a wonderful happy day, God made a way

    Verse:
    Soon my mansion will be ready, I'll be going home, Never more to be discouraged, Never more to roam, And on some happy morning, When the dead in Christ shall rise, I will go to meet my Lord up yonder in the skies

    (Repeat Chorus Twice)

    Glory To His Name - Old Rugged Cross

    • Lyrics
    Words and Music by:
    George Bennard

    Verse:
    On A hill far away stood an old rugged cross
    The emblem of suffering and shame
    How I love that old cross
    Where the dearest and best
    For a world of lost sinners was slain

    Chorus:
    So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
    Till my trophies at last I lay down
    I will cling to the old rugged cross
    And exchange it someday for a crown

    The ground is level and the foot of the cross, Anyone may come there for there is no cost, Rich man or poor man, Bound man or free, The ground was leveled that day at Calvary

    You may be a beggar have nothing to wear or eat at a table without one crumb to spare, You may live in mansion all the world know your name, But at the foot of the cross my friend everyone stands the same

    The Ground Is Level - Old Campmeeting Days

    • Lyrics
    Verse:
    Long ago when but a boy at old camp meeting time, How my heart would leap for joy to hear the old bells chime, Calling all the saints of God into the house of prayer, Oh such singing shouting for the Lord was there

    Chorus:
    I like the old time preaching, praying, singing, shouting, I like the old time reading of God's word, I like to hear those old time, Hallelujah, glory, I like the old time worship of the Lord

    Verse:
    Preaching in those good ol' days were filled with a holy flame, Preaching for the souls of men not for worldly fame, Under such old preaching sinner fell to pray, And the lord would save them in that good ol' fashion way

    The Ground Is Level - The Other Side Of The Cross

    • Lyrics
    Verse:
    There were tears in the eyes of Jesus, There were nails in the palms of His hands, There were thorns in His brow, And only God could know, How much beating and pain He could withstand,

    There was blood all around the hillside as a mother mourned her loss, And we all stood to gain from the Heavenly pain on the other side of the cross

    Chorus:
    On the other side of the cross, The side that no one could see, Hung the spirit of things yet to come, Hung the future of you and me, And what He gave that day on the cross not one bit of love has been lost, Hold my hand, Stand up and say if you were there on that day, On the other side of the cross

    (Repeat Chorus)

    The Ground Is Level - Victory Side

    • Lyrics
    Verse:
    There's a place where flowers graze the dry desert floor, Where there's still a fountain flowing from the mountainside, Where the angry waves of life are calmed by peaceful shores, Faith let's you ride stop just short of Heaven on the victory side

    Chorus:
    Victory all around us far removed from the fields, All who are there abounding resounding with cheer, Though we have not made it home over the mystic foam, We now reside temporary on the victory side

    Verse:
    Are you heavy laden down with Satan's defeat, Do you feel disgraced that there's just no place to hide, Didn't anyone tell you he's already been beat, When Jesus died to stop just short of Heaven on the victory side

    Verse:
    Often I stop to think just where I'd be, Had Jesus come down from that cruel tree, There be no hope for man no peace could be found, Praise God I'm glad that He didn't come down

    Chorus:
    He didn't come down, Oh no He didn't come down, Ten thousand angels were camped all around, He could have called them to set Him free, But He stayed on the cross for you and for me

    Verse:
    Picture His mother there with tears in her eyes, As they mocked and scorned Him and pierced His side, They said "If thou be the King then come to the ground", Praise God I'm glad that He didn't come down
