"The Lord Is A Busy Man"
 
The Lord is a busy man
The Lord is a busy man
A mighty busy man is He
But rain or shine
He still has time
To look out for you and me
 
Oh, the Lord is a busy man
The Lord is a busy man
A mighty busy man, it's true
But we are blessed
With a day or rest
His labors are never through
 
He has to hang up the stars
Shine up the moon
See that the birds keep singing in tune
Oh, the Lord is a busy man
The Lord is a busy man
A mighty busy man is He
Oh, but rain or shine
He still has time
To look out for you and me
 
Oh, the Lord is a busy man
The Lord is a busy man
A mighty busy man is He
Oh, but rain or shine
He still has time
To look out for you and me
 
Oh, the Lord is a busy man
The Lord is a busy man
A mighty busy man, it's true
Oh, but we are blessed
With a day of rest
His labors are never through
 
He has to wake up the sun
Bring down the rain
See that the fields are covered with grain
Oh, the Lord is a busy man
The Lord is a busy man
A mighty busy man is He
Oh, but rain or shine
He still has time
To look out for you and me
 
"The Lord Has Been A Shelter"
 
The Lord has been a shelter
The Lord has been a shelter
The Lord has been a shelter
For me, for me
 
Hmmm, I love the Lord
He heard my cry
He pittied every groan
(The Lord has been a shelter)
(For me, for me)
And long as I live
And trouble rise
I will hasten to his throne
(The Lord has been a shelter)
(For me, for me)
 
Lord, you been a shelter for me
Yes, you been a shelter for me
Lord, you been a shelter for me
Lord you been a shelter for me
Lord, you've been a roof over my head
You been a doctor in misery
Well, well, the Lord has been a shelter
For me, for me
 
That's why I stretch
My hands to thee
No other help I know
(The Lord has been a shelter)
(For me, for me)
And as long as I live
And trouble rise
I will hasten to His throne
(The Lord has been a shelter)
(For me, for me)
 
Lord, you been a shelter for me
Yes, you been a shelter for me
Lord, you been a shelter for me
Lord you been a shelter for me
Lord, you've been a roof over my head
You been a doctor in misery
 
Well, the Lord has been a shelter
When trouble rise
The Lord has been a shelter
When friends forsake me
The Lord has been a shelter
I'm in trouble
The Lord has been a shelter
I know, the Lord has been a shelter
For me, for me

"All That I Am"
 
Over hills and mountains
He has brought me a mighty long way
 
And there's not one day that I can say
I deserve whatever good comes my way, no Lord
But all that I am or ever will be is by your grace
 
From day to day, trials come my way
Pressing so hard, Lord, sometimes
You know my soul's filled with dismay
But, if I trust you all the way
Life will be sweeter, come what may
For all that I am or ever will be
Is by your grace
 
Every hour I need His holy power
And my heart, His love, he did impart, Lord
What I might think, I can't say, no Lord
But if I pray, your will I'll obey
My soul you'll save
 
From day to day, trials come my way
Pressing so hard, Lord, sometimes
You know my soul, filled with dismay
But if I trust you, Lord, all the way
Life will be sweeter, come what may
For all that I am, or ever will be
Is by your grace
 
"Get Away Jordan"
 
Get away, Jordan
Get away, on back, Jordan
Get away, Jordan
I gotta cross over to see my Lord
(rpt)
 
Well, see those chirrun all dressed in white
I gotta cross over to see my Lord
Well, they must be the chirrun of the Israelites
I gotta corss over to see my Lord
(chorus)
 
Well, my God got angry on the throne
The angels in Heaven began to moan
The drooped their wings, they (---) their face
Cryin Lord, have mercy on the human race
You know the day got dark
The moon turned to blood
God clapped His hands
There came a mighty flood
(chorus)
 
Well, in my dying hour
Some folks say I'm lost
But Jesus promised at the gates of hell
He'll see me safely cross
(chorus)
 
"God Put A Rainbow In The Sky"
 
God put a rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the sky
God put a rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the sky
It looked like the sun wasn't gon' shine no more
Oh, God put a rainbow in the sky
(rpt)
 
When God shut Noah in the grand ol' ark
God put a rainbow in the sky
Oh, yes, the sun grew dim and the days were dark
God put a rainbow in the sky
(chorus)

"God's Gonna Seperate The Wheat From The Tares"
 
God's gon' seperate the wheat from the tares
Didn't he say
God's gon' seperate the wheat from the tares
Didn't he say
Let them go anywhere they may
'Til that great harvest day
God's gon' seperate the wheat from the tares
Didn't he say
(rpt)
 
Well, God know's I got religion
Lordy, when I was young
One thing, give me understanding
I know I've been truly born
If you never hear me sing no more
Child, meet me on the other shore
God's gon' seperate the wheat from the tares
Didn't he say
(chorus)
 
Well, I went to the Gospel depot
And I did my best
Church I wanna be ready
Tell me you'll all be there
When that great trumpet blow
Church, we'll all be ready to go
God's gon' seperate the wheat from the tares
Didn't he say
(chorus)
 
"Out Of The Depths"
 
Out of the depths of my soul I cry
Jesus draw nigh, Jesus draw nigh
Lord, lend an ear to my ol' earnest plea
Jesus, draw nearer to me
 
Oh, Lord, I wanna labor
Faithful each day
Let me walk in your true way
Telling this world what a Savior I've found
And I'm spreading the Gospel around
 
Lord, let my life, consecrated be
Hidden in thee, hidden in thee
So that no sin, Lord, may be found in me
Lord, let me walk by your side
 
Oh, Lord, I wanna labor
Faithful each day
Let me walk in your true way
Telling this world what a Savior I've found
And I'm spreading the Gospel around
 
"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 sorrow
Free from all doubt and fear
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
(repeat)
