"Elijah Rock"
 
Elijah rock shout shout
Elijah rock comin' up Lord
Elijah rock shout shout
Elijah rock comin' up Lord
 
Elijah, Elijah
Eli_____jah
Elijah, Elijah
Eli_____jah
 
Satan is a liar and a conjure too
If you don't watch (mind) out
He'll conjure you
If I could I sho'ly would
Stand on the rock where Moses stood
(chorus)
 
Ezekiel said he saw him
Wheel in the mid' of a wheel
John talked about him
Book of the seven seals
Some say the Rose of Sharon
Others say the Prince of Peace
But I can tell everybody (this ol' world)
He's been a rock and a shelter for me
Hallelujah
(chorus)
 
You can call my rock in the mornin'
Call him late at night
He's always with me
And all my battles He'll fight
When I'm in trouble
I can call him on the line
He put a telephone in my heart
And I can call God anytime
Hallelujah
(chorus)
 
"Without A Song"
 
Without a song
Day would never end
Without a song
The road would never bend
When things go wrong
A man ain't got a friend
Without a song
 
That field of corn
Would never see a plow
That field of corn
You know, would be deserted now
A man is born
But he's no good no how
Without a song
 
I got my troubles and woes
But long as I know
The Jordan rolls
For I'll get along
Just as long as a song
Is strong in my soul
 
I'll never know
What makes the rain to fall
And I'll never know
What makes the grass grow tall
I only know
There ain't no love at all
Without a song
 
"Move On Up A Little Higher"
 
One a-these mornings
Soon one morning
I'm gonna lay down my cross
Get me a crown
Soon one evening
Late in the evening
Late in the evening
I'm going home to live on high
 
Soon as my feet strike Zion
Lay down my heavy burdens
Put on my robe in Glory
Goin' home, one day, and tell my story
I been climbing over hills and mountains
Gonna drink from the Christian fountain
You know, all a-God's sons and daughters, that morning
Will be drinking that ol' healing water
And we gonna live on forever
We gonna live on forever
We gonna live on, up in Glory afterwhile
 
I'm goin out sight-seeing in Buelah
March all around God's alter
Gonna walk and never get tired
Gonna fly, Lord, and never faulter
I'm gonna move up a little higher
Gonna meet ol' man Daniel
I'm gonna move up a little higher
Gonna meet the Hebrew Children
I'm gonna move up a little higher
Gonna meet Paul and Silas
I'm gonna move on up a little higher
Gonna meet my friends and kindred
I'm gonna move on up a little higher
Gonna meet my loving mother
I'm gonna move on up a little higher
Gonna meet that Lily of the Valley
I'm gonna feast with the Rose of Sharon
It will be always howdy howdy
It will be always howdy howdy
It will be always howdy howdy
And never goodbye
 
Oh, will you be there early one morning
Will you be there, somewhere 'round God's alter
Will you be there, oh, when the angels shall call God's roll
God knows I'll be wating, hmmm
Yes, I'll be watching somewhere 'round God's alter
Well, I'll be waiting, oh, at the beautiful, yes, golden gates
 
Well, well, soon as my feet strike Zion
Gonna lay down my heavy burdens
Gonna put on my robe in Glory
I'm going home, one day, tell my story
I been climbing over hills and mountains
I'm gonna drink from the Christian fountain
You know all God, God's sons and daughters that mornin'
Will drink that ol' healing water
 
Meet me there, early one morningj
Meet me there, somewhere 'round the alter
Meet me there, oh, when the angels shall call God's roll
 
"How I Got Over"
 
How I got over
How I got over
You know my soul looks back and wonder
How I got over
(rpt)
 
Soon as I can see Jesus
The man that died for me
Man that bled and suffered
Hung on Calvary
I'm gonna thank him
For how he brought me
I'm gonna thank God
For how he taught me
Yes, thank my God for how he kept me
I'm gonna thank him 'cause He never left me
I'm gonna thank God for ol' time religion
I'm gonna thank Him for giving me a vision
I'm gon' join the Heavenly choir
And I'm a-sing and never get tired
I'm gonna sing somewhere 'round God's alter
And I'm a-shout all my troubles over
Lord, we got to thank you
Thank you for being so good to me
(chorus)
 
I'm gon' wear a di-garment
In that New Jerusalem
I'm gonna walk the streets of gold
In that homeland of the soul
I'm gonna view the hosts in white
That been traveling day and night
Coming up from every nation
On their way to the great coronation
Coming from the north, south, east, and west
On their way to a land of rest
Lord, we gonna join the heavenly choir
We gon' sing and never get tired
Lord, we gon' sing somewhere 'round your alter
And we gonna shout all our troubles over
Lord, we gotta thank you
Thank you for being so good to me
 
Hmmm, I wanna thank you, this morning
I wanna thank you, Lord, this morning
You know all, all night long
You kept your angels watching over me
And you told your angels this morning
You told your angels, Lord, this morning
You said, "Touch her, in my name"
You said, "Touch her, in my name"
And I rose, I rose this morning
Lord, I rose, I rose this morning
With the blood, blood running warm
All in my veins, Oh Lord
Lord, I feel, I feel like running
Lord, I feel, I feel like running
Lord, you know I feel, feel like running
Lord, Lord, I feel, I feel like running
Lord, I wanna thank you
Thank you, thank you for being
So good to me
 
"The House I Live In"
 
What is America to me?
A name, a map, the flag I see
A certain word, 'democracy'
What is America to me?
 
The house I live in
A plot of earth, a street
The grocer and the butcher
And the people that I meet
The children in the playground
THe faces that I see
All races, all religions
That's America to me
 
The place I work in
The workers at my side
The little town, a city
Where my people live and die
The howdy and the handshake
The air of feeling free
And the right to speak my mind out
That's America to me
 
The things I see about me
The big things and the small
The little corner newsstand
And the house a mile tall
The wedding in the church yard
The laughter and the tears
The dream that's been a-growing
For one hundred and fifty years
 
The town I live in
The street, the house, the room
The pavement of a city
Of a garden all in bloom
The church, the school, the clubhouse
The million lights I see
But especially the people
That's America to me
 
"How Great Thou Art"
 
Oh, Lord, my God
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all, thy world thy hands have made
I see the stars and I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed
 
Then sings my soul
My Savior God to thee
How great thou art
How great thou art
(rpt 2 times)
 
"Come On Children, Let's Sing"
 
Come on children, let's sing
About the goodness of the Lord
Come on children, let's shout
All about God's great (rich) reward
Guide our footsteps everyday
Keeps us in this narrow way
Come on children let sing
(Come on children, let's shout)
(How the Lord Almighty)
(Has brought us out)
(There's none like him)
(Without a doubt)
Come on children, let's sing
About the goodness of the Lord
 
He has been my all and all
He will never let, let me fall
That is why I can sing
That is why I can shout
Because I know what it's all about
The goodness, goodness of the Lord
The Lord, the Lord
(chorus)
 
"Didn't It Rain"
Didn't it rain, chirrun
Talkin' bout rained
Oh, my Lord
Didn't it
Didn't it
Didn't it oh, oh my Lord
Didn't it rain?
(repeat)

Rained 40 days and 40 nights without stopping
Noah was glad when the rain stopped dropping
Knock at the window, knock at the door
Crying brother Noah can't ya take on more
Noah cried no, you're full of sin
God got the key and you can't get in
Just listen how it's rainin'
All day and all night...
etc...
God sent a raven to spread the news
Hoist his wings and away he flew
To the north, to the south
To the east, to the west
All day, all night
All night, all day
water rising...etc
"If I Can Help Somebody"

If I can help somebody
As I travel along
If I can help somebody
With a word or song
If I can help somebody
From doing wrong
My living shall not be in vain.

My living shall not be in vain
My living shall not be in vain
If I can help somebody
While I'm singing this song
My living shall not be in vain

"Thy Will Be Done "
(Not My Will)
 
If I ask for a thing
That I should not ask for
If I pray for a thing selfishly
If I ask for myself
And not for my neighbor
Lift this veil from my eyes
Let me see
Not my will
Thy will be done
Prayed Jesus
Let this same
Prayer be mine
Everday
If this robe of flesh
That I'm wearing
Makes me falter
Guide my feet
Hold my hand
All the way.
(repeat again)
"You'll Never Walk Alone"
When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
For at the end of the storm
Is a golden ray
And the sweet silver song of a lark
Walk on through the storm
Walk on through the rain
Though your dream be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on with hope in your hope
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone
"Trouble Of The World"
Soon I will be done
With the troubles of the world
Troubles of the world
Troubles of the world
Soon I will be done
Troubles of the world
I'm going home to live with God
No more weepin' and wailin'
No more weepin' and wailin'
No more weepin' and wailin'
I'm going home to live with God
I want to see my mother
I want to see my mother
I want to see my mother
I'm going home to live with God

"Good News, The Chariot's Coming"

Good news, the chariot's coming,
Good news, oh, the chariot's coming
Good news, the chariot's coming,
Yeah, I don't want to be behind.
Long white robe in heaven, I know
Long white robe in heaven, I know
Long white robe in heaven, I know
Yeah, I don't want to be left behind.
Good news, the chariot's coming,
Good news, oh, the chariot's coming
Good news, the chariot's coming,
Yeah, I don't want to be behind.
Golden slipper in heaven, I know
Golden slipper in heaven, I know
Golden slipper in heaven, I know
And I don't want to be left behind.
Starry crown in heaven, I know
Starry crown in heaven, I know
Starry crown in heaven, I know
And I don't want to be left, Lord,
I don't want to be left behind.

"Rusty Bells"

No one praying in the chapel
Where so many prayed before
And they let the bells get rusty
Don't they care anymore?


Rusty bells, rusty bells
Call your people back again
Call them back to kneel and pray
Again, pray again
Rusty bells, rusty bells
Pitty those who've gone astray
Ring again and help them find
Their way, find their way.

"It Took A Miracle"

My Father is omnipotent
And that you can't deny
A God of might and miracles
'Tis written in the sky.
It took a miracle
To put the stars in place
It took a miracle
To hang the moon in space
But when He saved my soul
Cleansed and made me whole
It took a miracle
Of love and grace!
(repeat)
"He's Sweet I Know"
He's sweet I know
He's sweet I know
Dark clouds may rise
And strong winds may blow
But, I can the world
Wherever I may go
That I have found a Savior
And He's sweet I know
(repeat)
I can't forget
When I was sad
Head hanging down
And my soul feeling bad
But, all I could say
Was "Lord, take my heart"
You know, Jesus heard me praying
And He gave me a song
(chorus)
Sometimes I'm tried
By Satan's snares
And my burdens seem
So hard to bear
And I'm talked about, Lord
In whatever I do
But, I know a Savior
And He'll take me on through
(chorus)
"He's My Light"
He's my light
The man of Galilee
And I know
He's got his arm around me
I'm glad to say
That his love is ever true
How I and mine
Are his possesions
And he'll forgive
All my transgressions
He died for me
Like no other could do
He's my light
My guiding light
I don't have to worry
Day or night
By his light
He makes my pathway bright
All the way
Each step of the way
Oh he paid that awful price
That I might have
A right to the Tree of Life
And I shall dwell with him
Forever
He is my light
Oh, my guiding light
"He Wants It That Way"
Let it rain, rain, rain
He wants it that way
Let it pour, pour pour
He knows what it's for
When it lightens and it thunders
Do you ever stop and wonder
Why he said he wants it that way
Some may smile
While others may cry
All the while
He's watching on high
Count your blessings every hour
God is strong, and He's got power
Everyday, he wants it that way
He made the moon and stars
To lighten the darkest of night
Made the mighty sun and said
Let there be light
Never doubt him for one minute
Read the Good Book
Learn what's in it
And you'll say he wants it that way
(repeat)
"Have You Any Time For Jesus"
Have you anytime for Jesus
While life's fleeting moments roll?
In this mortal life too busy, Lord, too busy
When you can't think about your soul
Soon we gonna summon at the portal, my Lord
To the mansion in the sky
And you will then sign your depart- your departure
And you will then take time to die
(You know) it's time for business
And there's time for pleasure
And there's time just to think about your sins
You have not take time to ask the Lord
Why don't you invite him to come in?
Soon we gonna gather, one day at the river
Just beyond the shinin' blue..Oooh
And if you have no time for Jesus
Well, he will have no time for you
(repeat..then end)
"God Be With You"
God be with you
God be with you
God be with you
'Til we meet again
God be with you
Oh, God be with
God, God be with you
Until we meet again
(repeat)
If I never more shall meet you
If I never more shall greet you
God, be with you
'Til we meet again
Keep on working for the Master
He'll be with you here and after
God be with you
Until we meet again
God be with you
God be with you
God be with you
'Til we meet again
God be with you
God is truly with us
God be with you
Until we meet again
(repeat)
"I Thank God For Everything"
I thank God for everything
The moon and the stars that shine
And all the good things he sends my way
And for his bright sunshine
And the flowers that bloom
And the earth and the sea
And the birds that sing so sweetly
Up in my God's trees
But most of all
For saving a wretch like me
I thank God
I thank you Lord
I thank you Lord
With all my heart and my soul
And the flowers that bloom
And the earth and the sea
And the birds sing so sweetly
Up in my God's trees
But most of all
For saving a wretch like me
I thank you Lord
I thank God.

"Like The Breeze Blows"

You can't stop the breeze from blowing
The sun from burning
No, no, no
You can't stop the days from going
The tides from turning
No, no
Can't stop a dream in the heart of men from growing
In the hearts of men
All over this world from growing
Growing, growing, growing, growing
Like the breeze blows
It will come
Like the sun burns
It will come
Like the days go by
And the tide must turn
You can't stop a dream
In the heart of men from growing
No, no
In the heart of men all over this world
From growing, growing
Growing, growing, growing,
Growing...
