“I’VE GOTTA HOME IN GLORY LAND”

VERSE 1: “I’ve gotta home in Glory Land that out-shines the sun…I’ve gotta home in Glory Land that out-shines the sun!

I’ve gotta home in Glory Land that out-shines the sun…way beyond the blue!

CHORUS: “Do Lord, O do Lord, O do remember me…Do Lord, O do Lord, O do remember me!

Do Lord, O do Lord, O do remember me, way beyond the blue!

VERSE 2: “I took Jesus as my Savior, you take Him too…I took Jesus as my Savior, you take Him too!

I took Jesus as my Savior, you take Him too, way beyond the blue!

(SING CHORUS AGAIN)

ROCK OF AGES

  1. Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee;
    Let the water and the blood, From Thy wounded side which flowed,
    Be of sin the double cure, Save from wrath and make me pure.
  2. Not the labor of my hands Can fulfill Thy law’s demands;
    Could my zeal no respite know, Could my tears forever flow,
    All for sin could not atone;  Thou must save, and Thou alone.
  3. While I draw this fleeting breath, When my eyes shall close in death,
    When I rise to worlds unknown, And behold Thee on Thy throne,
    Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee.

******************************************************

FOLLOW ME

“When I found myself in times of trouble, gentle Shepherd came to me, speaking words of mercy, ‘Follow Me!’

And in my darkest hour, He was standing right in front of me, speaking words of mercy, ‘Follow Me!’

‘Follow Me, follow Me, follow Me, follow Me!’ Speaking words of mercy, ‘Follow Me!’

I pray for all the broken people, living life so hopelessly, hear the Shepherd’s calling, ‘Follow Me!’

And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light that shines on me! Shine on till forever, ‘Follow Me!’

‘Follow Me, follow Me, follow Me, follow Me!’ Speaking words of mercy, ‘Follow Me!’

I wake up to the sound of music, all of nature praising Thee, and echoes Jesus’s calling, ‘Follow Me!’

‘Follow Me, follow Me, follow Me, follow Me!’ Speaking words of mercy, ‘Follow Me!’

The House of the Devil’s Chains

(From an old Traditional folk tune, “House of the Rising Sun” with revised lyrics by C. Whittemore, June, 2023)

“One day there came a stranger, by the shores of Galilee. Some say He came to give His life to set the captives free! To set the captives free!

“And, they claim He left a throne above, came down to this world of sin. To call us all, “Come follow Me” to Heaven’s Promised Land!  To Heaven’s Promised Land!

“Now the only life a sinner loves is to live it selfishly. But the only time he’ll find true peace of mind, is if that Stranger sets him free! If that Stranger sets him free!

“O mothers, fathers, tell your children, “Don’t you live in guilt and shame! Don’t spend your lives in sin and misery in The House of the Devil’s Chains!”

Well, there is a house in this dark world, and it’s called, “The house of Chains”. And it’s been the ruin of many-a lost soul, and God I know I was one!

“But now I’m walking up that road that goes, from his prison-house of sin, And I pray I’ll ne’re return to wear his heavy chains again!

Well, one day there came a Savior, to set the captives free. He was crucified and bled and died for sinners like you and me…and only He can set you free!”

***********************************************************

AMAZING GRACE 

1- “Amazing grace! How sweet the sound, That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found; Was blind, but now I see.

2 – “Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear, The hour I first believed.

3 – “Through many dangers, toils, and snares, I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, And grace will lead me home.

4 – “When we’ve been there ten thousand years, Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise, Than when we’d first begun.”

REPEAT 1ST VERSE

UNCHAINED MELEDY, Revised Prayer-n-Praise song lyrics by C.Whittemore

“Oh, my Lord, My Savior, I hunger for Thy love, that I may follow Thee.

And time goes by so sweetly, when I am lost in prayer, and share my heart with Thee!

I love your word, it gives me life, Lord live your life through me!

All the rivers flow, to the sea, to the sea, to the open arms of the sea.

And like a river flows is Your peace, and Your love. Let that peace and love flow out through me!

Oh, my Lord, my Savior, I hunger for Thy love, that I may follow Thee!

I love your word, that gives me life, Lord live your life through me!”

Fold these hands that they might pray to Thee. And I will pray to Thee, forevermore!

Turn these feet that they might follow Thee. And I will follow Thee forevermore!

REFRAIN: Forevermore, forevermore, I will follow Thee forevermore!

“TURN TO JESUS” by C. Whittemore, c. 2010

VERSE 1: When your world is filled with darkness and pain, and your tears are fallin’ like the pouring rain.

And the night seems so long, you can hardly hold on…

Turn to Jesus, turn to Jesus, and He will turn you to the light of dawn!

VERSE 2: When your friends all turn their backs and walk away, even though it seems they promised they’d all stay.

And the world seems so cold, and it makes you feel so old…

Turn to Jesus, turn to Jesus, and He will turn you to the light of day!

REFRAIN 1: When the wind and the waves and the storm clouds surround you, and hope is nowhere to be found.

You can call on that Name that’s above every name…turn to Jesus, turn to Jesus, and He will turn you to the light of dawn!

REFRAIN 2: He can take a heart of sadness and turn it into gladness, and hope will once more come around!

He can fill your life with song, and the reason to carry on! Turn to Jesus, turn to Jesus, and He will turn you to the light of dawn!

He will turn your darkness into dawn!

***************

“FOREVERMORE” (continued) by C. Whittemore c. 2010

VERSE 5: O give a new heart, that truly loves Thee. O give a new heart that truly loves Thee.

O give a new heart that truly loves Thee Lord, and I will love Thee Lord, forevermore!

REFRAIN: Forevermore, forevermore, and I will love Thee Lord, forevermore!

VERSE 6: O save this sinner, to live forever! O save this sinner, to live forever!

O save this sinner, to live forever, And I will live, forevermore!

REFRAIN: Forevermore, forevermore, and I will live forevermore! Forevermore!

 

 

“WE ARE TRAVELING TO THE PROMISED LAND”

(by C. Whittemore, July 2023)

.

VERSE 1: We are traveling to the Promised Land…on a road just pilgrims can see?…

And we’re calling all, ‘Won’t you come along, To that Land where we will be forever free?”

VERSE 2: All ye weary ones, come on along…and leave this land of heartache and pain?

You have nothing to lose and all to gain…free from sorrow and sin’s heavy chains!

VERSE 3: In that land we’ll never grow old…where milk and honey like rivers flow!

Where the bells of freedom forever will ring, and the songs of life forever we’ll sing!

VERSE 4: Stars will guide us on our heavenward trail, the Cross of Orion will point out the Way

And the face of the Moon enlightens the night, till we reach that Land of forever Dei!

VERSE 5: Bring no silver or gold in your hand…Never a price to enter that Land.

It has all been paid by nail-pierc-ed hands, and the precious blood of the heaven-sent Lamb!

VERSE 6: We are traveling to the Promised Land…on a road just pilgrims can see…

And we’re calling all, ‘Won’t you come along, To that Land of love and laughter and song?”

*************************************************************

This is the day that the Lord hath made
And I’m so glad he made you
With each rising sun you are here by my side
You are more than a dream come true

To have you to hold you
To love you to pray
To share with to care with
To hold hands and say

This is the day that the Lord hath made
And I will rejoice, I will rejoice
I will rejoice with you!

This is the love that the Lord has made
That you and I are one
Love’s mystery is unfolding today
Written for us in the Son

For better, for worse
For rich or for poor
Each day that passes
I’ll love you more, ’cause

This is the day that the Lord hath made
And I will rejoice, I will rejoice
I will rejoice with you!
