"Sign Of The Judgement"
 
Yes, yes, yes
It's the sign of the judgement
 
It's the sign of the judgement
(Yes)
It's the sign of the judgement
(Yes)
It's the sign of the judgement
(Yes, Lord)
Time is drawing nigh
(rpt)
 
Can't you hear God calling
(Yes)
Calling by His thunder
(Yes)
Does this world ever wonder
(Yes, Lord)
Oh, the time is drawing nigh
 
It's the sign of the judgement
(Yes)
It's the sign of the judgement
(Yes)
It's the sign of the judgement
(Yes, Lord)
Time is drawing nigh
 
Hmm, chirrun get your ticket
Show that you are right
Train leaves the station
For the morning, noon, and night
These are the days that we living in sorrow
Trouble on every land
God's getting tired of our wicked ways
Gonna judge every man
It's the sign of the judgement
Sign of the judgement (rpt 8 times)
 
Well, oh, Lord
Mountains will be skipping
Some will be falling light way
Sinners will be crying,
"Lord, give me another chance"
Some say He's comin' in the morning
He gonna make this ol' journey by a train
Some say He'll be riding a chariot
Shaped like an angel wing
Sign of the judgement
(rpt several times and fade out)
 
"Holding My Savior's Hand"
 
I shall have life everlasting
Holding my Savior's hand
I shall rejoice for the asking
Holding my Savior's hand
Free from this world and it's sorrows
Free from all doubt and fears
I shall rejoice forever
Holding my Savior's hand
 
I'm holding my Savior's hand
Viewing the Promised Land
Nothing on earth shall stop me
From holding my Savior's hand
(rpt 2 times)
 
"No Other Help I Know"
 
When I've done all I can do
And I've gone far as I can go
When I fought for the right
And grew weak, Lord, in my fight
 
Then I'll say father
I stretch my hand, Lord
My hands to thee
No other help, no other help
In this ol' world I know
 
No other shelter from the storm
No other comfort when things go wrong
No other hope when despaired
No other friend, Lord, I have anywhere
 
Then I'll say father
I stretch my hand, Lord
My hands to thee
No other help, no other help
In this ol' world I know
(rpt)
 
"My Desire"
 
It's my desire
To do some good things everyday
It's my desire
To help the fallen find the way
It's my desire
To bring back those who've gone astray
It's my desire to be like the Lord
 
It's my desire
To see His face when life is done
It's my desire
To help the father and the Son
It's my desire
To hear Him say, "My child, well done"
It's my desire to be like the Lord
 
"I Want My Crown"
 
When I've done the best I can
I want my crown, Lord knows
I want my crown
When I've done the best I can
I want my crown, yes, my crown
Some time I'm stumblin
Falling on down
Sometimes leveled with the ground
Hmm, when I've done the best I can
I want my crown, God knows
I want my crown
(rpt)
 
Lord, you know how much I suffer
In this world of sin, God knows
This world of sin
Got to carry the Gospel message
From door to door
Yes, door to door
With my sword and my shield
I'm gon' stay on bended knees
Oh, when I've done, Lord
The best I can I want my crown
Yes, I want my crown
(chorus)
 
"If You See My Savior"
 
I was standing by the bedside of a neighbor
Who was just about the cross the swelling tide
I asked if he would do me a favor
Kindly take this message to the other side
 
If you see my Savior tell him that you saw me
That you saw me
And when you saw me, I was on my way
Yes, Lord, my way
You may meet some friends who, yeah,  may ask about me
Tell them I, I'm coming home one day
 
"A Satisfied Mind"

How many times have you heard someone say
If I had his money I could do things my way
But little they know that it's so hard to find
Once rich man in ten with a satisfied mind

Money can't buy back your youth when you're old
A friend when you're lonely or peace to your soul
The wealthiest person is a pauper at times
Compared to the man with a satisfied mind

When life has ended and my time has run out
My friends and my loved ones will weep, no doubt
But one thing for certain when it comes my time
I will leave this ol' world with a satisfied mind
I will leave this ol' world with a satisfied mind
 
"An Evening Prayer"
 
If I have wounded any soul today
If I have caused one foot to go astray
If I have walked in my own willful way
Dear Lord forgive

Forgive the sin I've now confessed in Thee
Forgive my secret sins I do see
Oh, guide me, love me, and my keeper be
Dear Lord,  forgive
 
"Joshua Fit The Battle The Battle"
 
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho, Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls came tumblin' down
Hallelujah
(rpt)
 
You may talk about the men of Gideon
You may talk about the men of Saul
But there's none like the good ol' Joshua
The battle of Jericho
(chorus)
 
Up to the walls of Jericho
Sword drawn in his hand
Go blow them horns cried Joshua
The battle is in my hand
(rpt)
 
"It Is No Secret What God Can Do"
 
The chimes of time ring out the news
Another day is through.
Someone slipped and fell.
Or can that someone be you?
You may have longed (prayed)
For added strength
Your courage to renew.
But do not be disheartened,
For I bring hope to you.

It is no secret what God can do.
What He's done for others
He'll do the same thing for you.
With arms wide open,
God, He'll pardon you
It is no secret what God can do
 
"The Lord's Prayer"
 
Our Father, which art in Heaven
Hallowed be, Thy Name
Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done
On earth, as it is, in Heaven

Give us this day, our daily bread
And forgive us our debts
As we forgive our debtors
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
For Thine is the Kingdom
And the Power
And the Glory
Forever
Amen

"If You Just Keep Still"
 
King Jesus is my captain
And He fights for me
King Jesus, Lord, is my captain
And He fights for me
Well, He never lost a battle
And I know He never will, Lord
You said you'll, you'll fight my battle
Well, if I just keep still
 
Sometimes I want to be in company
And again, Lord, I wanna be alone
And it's when my enemies pressing me hard
Confusion all in my home
Sometimes I stand with folded arms
And my tears, Lord, come running down
Lord, you said you'll, you'll fight my battle
Yes, if I just keep still
 
Well, oh Lord
Oh, my Lord
Have mercy on me
Many nights I lay in torment
And my pillow wet with tears
I'm thinking of my burden
You'll help me more down through the years
If it wasn't for your grace
Many times, Lord, I'd quit this race
Oh, you said you'll, you'll fight my battle
Yes, if I just, Lord, keep still

"In The Garden"
 
I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The song of God discloses

And He walks with me
And He talks with me
And He tells me I am his own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known
 
"Sunrise, Sunset"
 
Is this the little girl I carried
Is this the little boy that played
I don't remember growing older
When did they?
When did she get to be a beauty
When did he grow to be so tall
Wasn't it yesterday when they were small
 
Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn over night to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze
 
Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Ladened with happiness and tears
 
"Danny Boy"
 
Oh, Danny boy
The pipes of pipes are calling
From glen to glen
And down the mountain side
The summer's gone
And all the roses falling
It's you, it's you
Must go and I must bide
 
But come ye back
When summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed
And white with snow
It's here I'll be
In sunshine or in shadow
Oh, Danny boy
Oh, Danny boy
I love you so
 
"In The Upper Room"
 
In the upper room with Jesus
Sitting at His blessed feast
Daily does my sin confessing
Begging for His mercy, sweet
Trusting in his grace and power
Seeking there, His love in prayer
It is then I feel the spirit
As I set with him in prayer
 
Oh, it's in the upper with Jesus
Oh, it's in the upper room
Talking with my Lord
Yes,  and your God
Well, it's in the upper room
Yes, it's in, in the upper room
Well, it's in, in the upper room
Talking with my Lord, yes, and my God
(rpt several times)
