    The Bible Told Me So

    • Lyrics
    The Bible Told Me So
    (F.D. Ballard)

    This I Know, This I Know
    There’s a time to reap and a time to sow
    Good deeds planted everyday will grow and grow…  Oh
    The bible told me so (Oh)
    The bible told me so (This I know)

    There’s a time to laugh and a time to cry
    A time live and there’s a time to die I know (Oh)
    The Bible told me so (Oh)
    The Bible told me so (This is know)

    CHORUS

    Oh the good Lord watches everyone
    Morning noon and night
    He made the moon and he made the sun
    So our future would be bright

    There’s a time to reap and a time to sow
    A time to pray when the evening lights are low (oh)
    The Bible told me so (oh) the Bible told me so.

    This I Know, This I Know

    There’s a time for work and a time to play
    Scatter flowers on the way where e’er you go (oh)
    The Bible told me so (oh) the Bible told me so.
    This I know

    There’s a time to win and a time to lose
    A time when everybody gets the blues I know (oh)
    The Bible told me so (oh) The Bible told me so.

    (Repeat CHORUS)

    There’s a time to reap and a time to sow
    A time to pray when the evening lights are low (oh)
    The Bible told me so (oh) the Bible told me so

    This I know,
    The Bible told me so
    This I know
    The Bible Told Me So
    This I Know
    The Bible told me so

    Who'll Be A Witness

    • Lyrics

    WHO’LL BE A WITNESS
    (arr. Wayne Haun)

    Who‘ll be a witness for my Lord?
    Who‘ll be a witness for my Lord?
    Who‘ll be a witness for my Lord?
    Who will be a witness for my Lord?

    (Yeah)
    I’ll be a witness for my Lord
    I’ll be a witness for my Lord
    I’ll be a witness for my Lord
    I will be a witness for my Lord

    There was a man of the Pharisees
    His name was Nicodemus and he didn’t believe.
    The same came to Christ by night,
    Wanted to be taught out of human sight.
    Nicodemus was a man who desired to know
    How a man can be born when he’s old.
    Christ told Nicodemus as a friend, “ Man you must be born again”
    He said, “Marvel not, man, if you want to be wise,
    Repent, believe and be baptized.”

    Then you’ll be a witness for my Lord
    You’ll be a witness for my Lord
    You’ll be a witness for my Lor
    You will be a witness for my Lord

    We read about Samson, from his birth
    He was the strongest man that ever lived on earth.
    Way back yonder in ancient times
    He killed ten thousand of the Philistines.
    Then old Samson went a wanrin’ about
    Samson’s strength was never found out.
    ‘Till his wife sat upon his knee she said, “Tell me where your strength lies, if you please!”
    You know, Samson’s wife, she talked so fair
    Samson said, “Cut off my hair! (Cut it off!) Shave my head just as clean as your hand, and my strength will come like a natural man.”

    Samson was a witness for my Lord,
    Samson was a witness for my Lord
    Samson was a witness for my Lord
    There’s another witness for my Lord!

    Witness (Who will be a witness?)
    Witness (My soul will be a witness)
    Witness (Will you be a)
    Witness (for my Lord)
    Who will be a witness?

    If God Didn't Care

    • Lyrics
    If God Didn’t Care
    (Lee Roy Abernathy)

    (Verse 1)

    We wouldn’t have strength to bear our sorrow
    If God didn’t care
    There never would be a glad tomorrow
    If God didn’t care
    There never would be a hope a-burning
    A mansion in the sky
    We wouldn’t expect our Lord’s returning
    For if He came and didn’t care He’d surely pass you by

    (Verse 2)

    Those welcoming bells would not be ringing
    If God didn’t care
    Those heavenly voices wouldn’t be singing
    If God didn’t care
    He wouldn’t have said we’d be rewarded
    And promised us joy beyond compare
    No, we never would have known of heaven
    If God didn’t care

    Repeat Verse 2

    TAG
    If my God, If my Lord didn’t care

    That's How Rhythm Was Born

    • Lyrics

    That’s How Rhythm Was Born
    (George Whiting, Nat Schwartz & J.C. Johnson)

    Down south the banjos cry to
    Everybody sayin' hidie-hi to
    While the moonbeams danced on the bayou
    That's how rhythm was born

    They praised the Mighty Forgiver
    They washed their sins in the river
    Cold water made 'em all shiver
    That's how rhythm was born

    Folks came down and gathered around
    That Swanee shore
    Caught the craze and sang His praise
    They all cried, "Why don't cha gimme some more?"

    Down south the banjos cry to
    Everybody who's singin' hidie-hi to
    While the moonbeams danced on the bayou
    That's how rhythm was born

    Down south the banjos cry to
    Everybody who's singin' hidie-hi to
    While the moonbeams danced on the bayou
    That's just how rhythm was born

    They praised the Mighty Forgiver
    They washed their sins in the river
    Cold water, well it made them wanna shiver
    That’s just how rhythm was born

    Folks came down and gathered round
    That old Swanee shore
    Caught the craze and sang His praise
    And cried, "Hmm, give me some more"

    You can ask anyone, sir
    They'll answer we'll be over yonder
    Hidie, hidie, hidie, hidie, hidie, hidie, hidie, hidie
    That's how rhythm was born
     

    INSTRUMENTAL

    Banjos cry to
    Sayin’ hidie-hi to
    Dance on the bayou
    And that's just the reason that rhythm was born

    Praise and forgive 'em
    Washed their sins in the river
    Cold water makes 'em all shiver
    And that's just how the rhythm was born

    Folks came down and gathered around
    That Swanee shore
    Caught the craze, sang His praise
    They all cried, "Why don't cha gimme some more?"

    Ask you anyone, sir
    They'd be glad to answer you, sir
    They'll answer we'll be over yonder
    And that's just the reason that rhythm was born
    That's how rhythm was born

    It's Good To See The Sun

    • Lyrics

    It’s Good To See The Sun
    (Ernie Haase, Wayne Haun & Joel Lindsey)

    (Verse 1)

    When the nights are long
    And the doubt inside is strong
    And morning finally comes
    It’s good to see the sun

    (Verse 2)

    The rain may fall
    On the rooftop of your heart
    But when rain clouds are all done
    It’s good to see the sun

    (Bridge)

    Shining like the highest hope of heaven
    Driving all the shadows far away
    Suddenly you see the whole world smiling
    In the bright new light of the day

    (Verse 3)

    So on and on it goes
    Like a circle I suppose
    Cause everybody knows my friend
    The lonely nights will come again
    So take this moment in
    It’s good to see the sun
    It’s good to see the sun

    Ooh

    My Brother's Keeper

    • Lyrics
    My Brother’s Keeper
    (Kay Twomey, Fred Wise & Ben Weisman)

    If I should see a homeless wanderer
    I’d try to help him all I can
    For I am my brother’s keeper
    And my brother is every man

    If I should meet a lonely sinner
    I’d try to teach him how to pray
    For I am my brother’s keeper
    I rejoice when I help him that way

    I might be that homeless wanderer
    There lost with no one to love
    I might be that lonely sinner
    If it wasn’t for the grace of God above

    I know that bread cast on the water
    Comes back a hundred fold sometimes
    Today I’m my brother’s keeper
    But tomorrow he may be mine

    But tomorrow he may be mine

    Old Fashioned Love

    • Lyrics

    OLD-FASHIONED LOVE
    (James P. Johnson / Cecil “Mack” McPherson)

    I’ve got that old-fashioned love in my heart
    And there, it shall always remain
    It’s like that old ivy vine
    Cling a little closer all the time
    Through the years, joy and tears, just the same

    I’ve got that old-fashioned faith in my heart
    And there it shall always remain
    Although the land may change to sea
    There’ll be no change in me
    I’ve got that old-fashioned faith in my heart

    Let It Go

    • Lyrics

    LET IT GO
    (Ernie Haase, Wayne Haun & Joel Lindsey)

    (Verse One)

    Do you hold on to past regrets
    Worry, grumble, fume and fret
    Grudges you just can't forget
    Well, you know better than that
    Those things are like a bad disease
    They'll eat at you sure as you please
    And bring you down and put the squeeze
    On you in no time flat

    (Chorus)

    So brother you've got to let it go
    Cause life's too short and before you know
    You're gonna turn around all grey and old
    So, brother let it go
    Oh, brother let it go!

    (Verse Two)

    Well, the boss gave someone else your job
    And you feel like you've just been robbed
    You wanna yell, “You dirty slob!”
    But that just isn't cool
    Somebody at the traffic light
    Was turning left as you turned right
    They cut you off and drove from sight
    Now where's that golden rule?

    REPEAT CHORUS

    Bridge:

    Resentment - oh no - let it go
    Offenses - oh brother - let it go
    Dissension – oh - let it go
    You're stressing out and you're about to blow….

    (Chorus)

    Brother you've got to let it go
    Cause life's too short and before you know
    You're gonna turn around all grey and old
    So, brother let it go
    Oh, brother let it go
    Brother let it go!

    It's My Desire

    • Lyrics
    It’s My Desire
    (Jimmy Ray Pearce)

    It's my desire to live for Jesus,
    It's my desire to be just like Him;
    Though often I've failed Him and brought Him much shame,
    It's my desire to live for Him.

    It's my desire to help someone today,
    Someone who may have failed to see the way;
    I, too, was once so lost, but I found my way to God,
    It's my desire to live for Him.

    If you could see where Jesus brought me from
    To where I am today
    Then you would know the reason why I love Him so,
    Now you can take this world's wealth and riches,
    I don't need earth's power
    It's my desire (it’s my desire)
    It's my desire (its my desire)
    It's my desire to live for Him (live for Him)
