HAVE YOU BEEN PURIFIED

INTRO

HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE FIRE HAVE YOU FELT THE HEAT
DO YOU FEEL AS THO YOU HAVE BEEN TRIED
HAVE YOUR EYES BEEN OPENED IS YOU HEART SET FREE
HAVE YOU BEEN PURIFIED

CHORUS:
NOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT THERE IS HOPE
SINCE JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED
HE ROSE THE THIRD DAY AND TOOK YOUR SINS AWAY
IN HIM YOU ARE PURIFIED

TURN AROUND

HAS THERE BEEN A CHANGE IN THE WAY THAT YOU FEEL
SINCE YOU KNOW THAT YOUR SAVIOR DIED
DOES EVERYTHING SEEM MUCH MORE REAL
HAVE YOU BEEN PURIFIED

CHORUS:
NOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT THERE IS HOPE
SINCE JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED
HE ROSE THE THIRD DAY AND TOOK YOUR SINS AWAY
IN HIM YOU ARE PURIFIED

YES IN HIM YOU ARE PURIFIED

INTRO

CHORUS:
CHANGED IN A MOMENT, IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE
WEíLL BE WITH JESUS, NEVER SHALL WE DIE

GOING TO OUR NEW HOME, WHERE THERE IS NO END
WONT YOU PLAN TO BE THERE, ON THAT HAPPY DAY
WHEN WEíRE CHANGED IN A MOMENT, AND ALL FLESH IS ROLLED AWAY

CHORUS:
CHANGED IN A MOMENT, IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE

INTRO

CHORUS:

THIS LOVE THAT I HAVE IS NOT FOR ANOTHER
NOT MOTHER OR DAD OR SISTER OR BROTHER
THIS LOVE THAT I HAVE WILL STAND ALL THE WEATHER
FOR THIS LOVE THAT I HAVE IS JUST FOR MY SAVIOR

BUT COULD NOT BE FOUND IN THINGS OF THIS WORLD
THEN ONE DAY I MET THIS MAN CALLED JESUS

I THOUGHT I HEARD HIM CALLING MY NAME

INTRO (last 2 lines)

I THOUGHT I HEARD HIM CALLING MY NAME
I TURNED BUT NO ONE WAS THERE
HIS VOICE WAS AS PURE AS THE RAIN
BUT IT MUST, HAVE COME, FROM THE AIR

THE VOICE ASKED ME WHERE I WAS GOING
WITHOUT LOOKING, I SAID, DOWN THE ROAD
AS I TURNED, AND SAW, NO ONE THERE
WHERE THE VOICE, CAME FROM I DID NOT KNOW

I SEARCHED ALL AROUND, FOR SOMEONE
THAT MIGHT HAVE PLAYED THIS TRICK ON ME
BUT NO, NOT ONE SOUL, COULD BE FOUND
YET SOMEONE WAS SURELY CALLING ME

WELL MANY YEARS HAVE PASSED, SINCE THAT DAY
AND IíVE, CERTAINLY BEEN DOWN THE ROAD
FROM THE PATH, OF THE RIGHT, I SOMETIMES STRAYED
AND LIFE, HAS HAD SOME HEAVY LOADS

TURN AROUND (whole chorus)

WHEN LIFE SEEMS SO HARD FOR YOU TO BARE
JUST CALL ON THE NAME OF OUR LORD
WELL EACH, AND EVERY TIME, HEíLL BE THERE
MAYBE YOU, WILL HEAR HIM, CALL YOUR NAME

OH YES, HEíLL BE CALLING YOUR NAME
SO BE READY, WHEN YOU HEAR HIM SAY
COME TO ME, IF YE ARE, HEAVY LADEN
OH ANSWER, WHILE HEíS CALLING YOUR NAME

YES I THOUGHT, I HEARD HIM, CALLING MY NAME
OH! ITíS FUNNY HOW I FEEL THIS WAY
MY SINS ARE ALL GONE AND THEREíS NO SHAME
OH IíM SURE, I HEARD HIM, CALL MY NAME

YES IíM SURE, I HEARD HIM, CALL MY NAME

True story. Happened when I was about 13 years old
 

I KNOW ONE

INTRO

WHEN ALL YOUR LOVES HAVE ENDED, AND ALL YOUR FRIENDS ARE GONE
WHOíLL BE AROUND TO WANT YOU, WHEN ALL THESE THINGS GO WRONG
NO ONE IN THIS WORLD WOULD DO IT, AFTER THE WAY YOUíVE DONE
BUT IF YOUíLL TAKE A FRIEND WHOíLL LOVE YOU, I KNOW ONE

CHORUS 1:
YOU NEVER KNOW YOU MIGHT GET LONELY
WHEN ALL THESE THINGS ARE MISSED
IT WOULDNíT HURT FOR YOU TO KEEP
YOUR SAVIOR ON YOUR LIST
AFTER YOUR HEARTS BEEN BROKEN
AND YOU NEED A PLACE TO RUN
IF YOUíLL TAKE A FRIEND WHOíLL LOVE YOU
I KNOW ONE

TURN AROUND

WHEN YOUR WORLD IS EMPTY, AND IT SEEMS ALL HOPE IS GONE
AND THEREíS NO ONE WHO CARES, AND YOU ARE SO ALONE
WITH ALL THESE THINGS UPON YOU, AND LIFE IS NO MORE FUN
IF YOUíLL TAKE A FRIEND WHOíLL LOVE YOU, I KNOW ONE

CHORUS 2:
JESUS IS THAT SPECIAL FRIEND
HEíLL NEVER LET YOU DOWN
AND WHEN, ALL ELSE, IS GONE
HEíLL STILL BE AROUND
AFTER YOUR HEARTS BEEN BROKEN
AND YOU NEED A PLACE TO RUN
IF YOUíLL TAKE A FRIEND WHOíLL LOVE YOU
I KNOW ONE

OH, YES, I KNOW ONE

OH, YES, HEíS THE ONE

OUR SAVIOR DIED UPON THE CROSS
SO THE WORLD WOULD NOT BE LOST

IF YOU THINK THAT HEAVENíS FREE
JUST THINK ABOUT JESUS HANGIN ON THAT TREE

JESUS DID IT ALL HE SET THE CAPTIVES FREE
YEAH JESUS DID IT ALL AT CALVARY

OUR ALLOTTED TIME

TURN AROUND

ON EACH TOMBSTONE WITH JUST ONE LINE
THERE ARE TWO DATES A SPACE IN TIME

TO EACH OF US UPON THIS EARTH
THAT SPACE OF TIME WHAT IS ITíS WORTH

YOUíLL HAVE YOURS AND IíLL HAVE MINE
BETWEEN THOSE DATES OUR ALLOTTED TIME

WHEN ITíS ALL OVER BEFORE HIS THRONE
WILL WE LOOK BACK UPON THAT STONE

ONE THING FOR SURE KEEP THIS IN MIND
WE WILL ACCOUNT FOR OUR ALLOTTED TIME

THAT FINAL DATE SAID YOUR HEART STOPPED
BUT NOT YOUR SOUL CHRIST IS YOUR ROCK

WHAT MUST WE DO WHILE THIS EARTH WE TROD
THE WHOLE DUTY OF MAN THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD

YES YOUíLL HAVE YOURS AND IíLL HAVE MINE
BETWEEN THOSE DATES OUR ALLOTTED TIME

TURN AROUND

HE SUFFERED AND DIED JUST FOR ME

CHORUS:
NOW AND THEN, I THINK ABOUT, ALL THE THINGS THAT HEíS DONE
AND KNOW THAT HEíS DESERVING, OF THE CROWN HE HAS WON
ALTHOUGH WEíRE TO BLAME, HE BORE, ALL OUR SHAME
NOW AND THEN, I HANG MY HEAD AND CRY

TURN AROUND (whole verse)

OH WHEN I, THINK ABOUT, HOW HE SUFFERED FOR ME
NOW AND THEN, I HANG MY HEAD AND CRY
WHY WOULD, ONE GO THRU, THE THINGS THAT HE DID
FOR A POOR LOST SINNER SUCH AS I

CHORUS:
NOW AND THEN, I THINK ABOUT, ALL THE THINGS THAT HEíS DONE
AND KNOW THAT HEíS DESERVING, OF THE CROWN HE HAS WON

MY SAVIOUR, MY LORD, AND MY KING

AND HE GAVE ME HIS LOVE TO KEEP ME WARM

THE MISSING DAY

INTRO last line of chorus

EARLY IN THE SPACE PROGRAM, OUR TOP MINDS WERE SPINNING ROUND
LOTS OF THINGS THEY MUST FIGURE HOW TO DO
WHILE SEARCHING THROUGHOUT TIME, TO SOLVE A PROBLEM ON THEIR MIND
A CLEAR ANSWER MUST COME INTO VIEW

THE DISCOVERY SHOCKED THEM ALL, UNTIL THEY BEGAN TO CALL
UPON GODíS WORD, FOR THE ANSWER THEY MUST FIND
THROUGH THE BIBLE VERSE BY VERSE, A PROBLEM IN THE UNIVERSE
A WHOLE DAY THAT WAS MISSING IN TIME

ONE OF THEM HAD BEEN TOLD, OF TWO STORIES IN THE OLD
TESTAMENT, THAT WOULD SURELY VERIFY
THEY FIRST FOUND IN GODíS WORD, THE BOOK OF JOSHUA AS HE HEARD
AND A STORY ABOUT KING HEZEKIAH

CHORUS:
JUST ONE MODERN DAY REASON, WHY I AM BELIEVING
IN GODíS WORD AND CAN KNOW THAT IT IS TRUE
CHECK IT OUT AND YOUíLL FIND, THIS TRUE STORY OF TIME
MAYBE IT WILL HELP STRENGTHEN YOU TO

TURN AROUND

WHEN OLE KING HEZEKIAH, FOUND THAT HE WAS GOING TO DIE
IN HIS HEART, HE BEGAN TO FEAR
THE PROPHET HAD TO SHOW A SIGN, TO EASE THE KINGíS MIND
SO GOD ADDED TO HIM FIFTEEN YEARS

GOD GAVE JOSHUA HIS WAY, WHEN HE MADE THE LONGEST DAY
BY CAUSING THE SUN TO STAND STILL
JUST TWO THINGS THAT WERE DONE, FOR TWO BELIEVING SONS
WHO WOULD KEEP THEMSELVES IN GODíS WILL

CHORUS:
JUST ONE MODERN DAY REASON, WHY I AM BELIEVING
IN GODíS WORD AND CAN KNOW THAT IT IS TRUE
CHECK IT OUT AND YOUíLL FIND, THIS TRUE STORY OF TIME
MAYBE IT WILL HELP STRENGTHEN YOU TO

MAYBE IT WILL HELP STRENGTHEN YOU TO

THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION

INTRO last line of chorus

THERE IS AN HOUR, THATíS COMING TO ALL
AN HOUR OF TEMPTATION, MAKE SURE YOU DONíT FALL
HOW DO YOU GET THROUGH, YOU CANíT ON YOUR OWN
STUDY IN GODíS WORD, YOU WONT BE ALONE

IN YOUR PATIENCE, POSSES YE YOUR SOUL
JUST STAY IN THE BIBLE, DONíT LET IT GROW OLD
MAKE SURE YOUíRE APPROVED OF, WHEN THAT HOUR COMES AROUND
STUDY WITH PATIENCE, GOD WONT LET YOU DOWN

CHORUS:
THIS HOUR OF TEMPTATION, COMES ON THE WHOLE WORLD
THE HOUR OF SATAN, TO BE ON THIS EARTH
JUST KNOWING HE COMES FIRST, THATíS ALL YOU MUST DO
TO ESCAPE THAT TEMPTATION, THAT IS COMING TO YOU

TURN AROUND

IF THEY SAY IíM IN THE DESERT, DONíT YOU GO TO SEE
IF SOMEONE HAS TO TELL YOU, YOUíLL KNOW ITíS NOT ME
OR IF IíM IN THE CLOSET, NO NEED TO GO THERE
FOR IíM COMING AFTER, THAT TEMPTATION HOUR

A WOLF IN SHEEPíS CLOTHING, HE LOOKS LIKE A LAMB
BUT SPEAKS AS A DRAGON, NOT THE GREAT I AM
OH HE IS A LOSER, SO DONíT YOU LOSE TO
ESCAPE THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION, TO JESUS BE TRUE

CHORUS:
THIS HOUR OF TEMPTATION, COMES ON THE WHOLE WORLD
THE HOUR OF SATAN, TO BE ON THIS EARTH
JUST KNOWING HE COMES FIRST, THATíS ALL YOU MUST DO
TO ESCAPE THAT TEMPTATION, THAT IS COMING TO YOU

CHECK THEM OUT IN GODíS WORD

INTRO

BEWARE OF FALSE PREACHERS, BEWARE OF FALSE TEACHERS,
JUST CHECK THEM OUT IN GODíS WORD
MAKE SURE THAT ITíS REAL, NOT SOMETHING YOU FEEL,
AND NOT, JUST SOMETHING YOUíVE HEARD

THAT WARM FUZZY FEELING, CAN SEND YOUR SOUL REELING,
TO A PLACE, YOUíRE SURE TO NOT LIKE
SO WHEN THEY COME AROUND, WITH DOCTRINE NOT SOUND,
TELL THEM, TO JUST TAKE A HIKE

THEM YOUíRE NOT HATIN, YOU KNOW ITíS OLE SATAN,
AND GOD GAVE YOU POWER OVER HIM
PUT THE DEVIL BEHIND, LET HIM KNOW YOUíRE NOT BLIND,
AND NEVER, LET YOUR LIGHT GO DIM.

BEWARE OF FALSE CHURCHES, DONíT LET THEM HURT-YE,
YOU KNOW, HOW THEY TRY TO PLEASE US
DONíT BID THEM GODSPEED, YOUíLL HAVE WHAT YOU NEED,
JUST KEEP, YOUR MIND ON JESUS

TURN AROUND

WHEN YOUR MIND IS HURTIN, THATíS WHEN THAT OLE SERPENT,
COMES ROUND, WITH SUCH A GOOD DEAL
HEíLL PROMISE THE WORLD, PUT YOUR HEAD IN A WHIRL,
HEíLL GIVE, YOU SUCH A GOOD FEEL

REMEMBER WHO TAUGHT US, AND WHOSE BLOOD BOUGHT US,
AND ITíS NOT, JUST SOMETHING YOUíVE HEARD
BEWARE OF FALSE PREACHERS, BEWARE OF FALSE TEACHERS,
JUST CHECK, THEM OUT IN GODíS WORD

BEWARE OF FALSE PREACHERS, BEWARE OF FALSE TEACHERS,
JUST CHECK, THEM OUT IN GODíS WORD

DARK OF THE NIGHT

INTRO

HEíS JUST THE DARK OF THE NIGHT, HE CANíT STAND IN THE DAY.
AND AS THE SON IS COMING UP, YOU KNOW DARKNESS HAS TO FADE.

HEíLL GO DOWN INTO THE PIT, WHERE NO CANDLE WILL BE LIT.
HEíS LIKE THE CURRENT IN A SWIRL, BUT JESUS, LIGHTS UP THE WORLD.

HE WILL TRY TO TAKE YOU DOWN, BUT IN JESUS LIFE IS FOUND.
HIS FLOOD OF LIES CANNOT DECEIVE, IF IN JESUS YOU BELIEVE.

CHORUS:
YOUíRE NOT THE CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT, YOUíRE THE CHILDREN OF THE DAY
SO WHEN SATAN COMES AROUND, JUST TELL HIM TO FADE AWAY.

HE KNOWS THE SON IS COMING UP, AND THAT HEíLL BE GOING DOWN.
KEEP YOURSELF IN THE LIGHT, NOT IN DARKNESS BE FOUND.

TURN AROUND

SOAK UP ENOUGH OF GODíS WORD, DONíT BE TAKEN IN HIS FLOOD.
HEíS LIKE THE CURRENT IN A SWIRL, BUT JESUS, LIGHTS UP THE WORLD.

HEíS JUST THE DARK OF THE NIGHT, HE CANíT STAND IN THE DAY.
AND AS THE SON IS COMING UP, YOU KNOW DARKNESS HAS TO FADE.

AND WHEN JESUS COMES AGAIN, AND PUTS THE REIGN OF SATAN DOWN.
MAKE SURE HE FINDS YOU IN HIS WORD, WHERE EVERLASTING LIFE IS FOUND.

CHORUS:
YOUíRE NOT THE CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT, YOUíRE THE CHILDREN OF THE DAY
SO WHEN SATAN COMES AROUND, JUST TELL HIM TO FADE AWAY.

HE KNOWS THE SON IS COMING UP, AND THAT HEíLL BE GOING DOWN.

SON NOT SUN
 

THEREíS A BATTLE COMING ON

INTRO

THEREíS A BATTLE COMING ON, A WAR OF THE MIND.
KEEP YOUR ARMOR ON, DONíT LET YOUR COURAGE UNWIND.
THE ARMY WILL BE WELL TRAINED, SET IN BATTLE ARRAY,
AND AS HORSEMEN THEYíLL RUN, PEOPLE SHALL BE MUCH PAINED.

CHORUS 1:
WHO WILL THEY TORMENT, WHILE ON THIS EARTH THEY TROD?
ONLY THOSE WHO HAVE, NOT THE SEAL OF GOD.
LIKE A SCORPION THEYíLL STING, WHILE INTO BATTLE THEY RUN,
AND THEIR POWER IS TO HURT, THOSE MEN FOR FIVE MONTHS.

TURN AROUND

THEY HAVE A KING OVER THEM, IN THE GREEK APOLLYON..
HE HAS A SHORT TIME, TO GET HIS WORK DONE.
FROM HIS MOUTH COMES A FLOOD, TO CARRY YOU AWAY,
BUT YOU DONíT HAVE TO WORRY, IF IN GODíS WORD YOU STAY.

CHORUS 2:
IT WILL BE A TIME, LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
IT IS SATANíS HOUR, HEíS BEEN WAITING FOR.
BUT HE WILL GO DOWN, TO A BOTTOMLESS PIT,
AND YOU WILL SURVIVE, THE TRIBULATION OF HIS.

YES, YOU WILL SURVIVE, THE TRIBULATION OF HIS.

BY AMAZING GRACE

SEVEN SONS GROWN, AND TWO THAT WERE GONE
WERE BORN, TO MY MOM AND DAD
ALSO THREE GIRLS, THAT MADE UP OUR WORLD
THROUGH ALL, THE GOOD AND THE BAD

ALL WERE CONTENT, AS THROUGH LIFE WE WENT
WHETHER, AT WORK OR AT PLAY
WE ALL WORKED THE FARM, DAD IN THE COAL MINE
THATíS HOW, WE GOT BY DAY BY DAY

THEN A WAR CAME ALONG, AND DISRUPTED OUR LIVES
AND WE THOUGHT, IT NEVER WOULD END
THE TWO OLDEST BOYS, THEY JOINED THE FIGHT
TO GO, AND OUR COUNTRY DEFEND

ONE FOUGHT FROM THE AIR, AND THE OTHER AT SEA
IN SOME, FAR DISTANT LAND
WE WAITED EACH DAY, FOR JUST ANY WORD
ABOUT THE BOYS, WHO WERE JUST BARELY MEN

ON MOM AND DADíS FACE, YOU COULD SEE THE WORRY
THAT SOMETHING LIKE THIS BRINGS ALONG
WHAT FAMILIES GO THROUGH, WHEN THEY SEE THEIR LOVED ONES
HAVE TO GO, AND MAKE RIGHT THE WRONG

THROUGH MANY A BATTLE, AND A LONG STRETCH OF TIME
MOM LONGED, FOR HER SONS TO BE HOME.
WITH THE WAR FINALLY OVER, ONLY ONE WOULD RETURN
THE OTHER, FOREVER GONE.

SHORTLY THERE-AFTER, ANOTHER WAR ON THE SCENE
TWO MORE OF MOMíS BOYS WOULD GO
ON OUR MOTHERíS FACE, THAT SAME LOOK OF WORRY
AS WAR, ON MOM TOOK ITíS TOLL.

SEVEN TIMES MOM AND DAD, WENT THROUGH THIS SAME WORRY
ONCE, FOR EACH BOY THEY HAD.
BUT THEREíLL COME A TIME, THEREíLL BE NO MORE WAR
IN HEAVEN, THEREíLL BE NO ONE SAD

MANY TIMES I HAVE WONDERED, HOW DID MOM MAKE IT THROUGH
WITH GOD SHE WOULD TELL US, ALL THINGS YOU CAN DO
IíLL ALWAYS REMEMBER, MY MOMíS LOVELY FACE
SHE MADE IT THROUGH LIFE, BY AMAZING GRACE

MOM MADE IT THROUGH LIFE, BY AMAZING GRACE

WEíRE MAKING PLANS

INTRO
SOME DAY, AND SOON, WEíLL BE LEAVING,

HAVE YOU, MADE PLANS, TO LEAVE

THE TEARS, FOR US, WILL BE OVER
NO LON-GER, SHALL, WE GRIEVE
WEíRE, MAKING PLANS, TO BE IN HEAVEN
WEíRE, MAKING PLANS TO LEAVE.

CHORUS:
WEíRE MAKING PLANS, TO BE IN HEAVEN
YOU, MAKE PLANS, TO BE THERE TO
ALL, YOU MUST DO, IS BELIEVE
WEíRE, MAKING PLANS, TO BE WITH JESUS
WEíRE, MAKING PLANS, TO LEAVE.

TURN AROUND

CHORUS:
WEíRE MAKING PLANS, TO BE IN HEAVEN
YOU MAKE PLANS, TO BE THERE TO
ALL, YOU MUST DO, IS BELIEVE
WEíRE, MAKING PLANS, TO BE WITH JESUS
WEíRE, MAKING PLANS, TO LEAVE.

YES WEíRE, MAKING PLANS, TO LEAVE.
