ROBE AND CROWN                        Video

Traditional Gospel hymn as sung by the Afrika Mamas

We shall wear a robe and crown
Watch ye, therefore, you know not the day
When the Lord shall call your soul away
If you’re fighting, striving for the right
You shall wear a robe and crown

I’m gonna wear a crown
I’m gonna wear a crown
When the trumpet sounds
When the trumpet sounds—
I’m gonna wear a crown
I’m gonna wear a crown
We shall wear a robe and crown

I’m gonna wear a crown
I’m gonna wear a crown
When the trumpet sounds
When the trumpet sounds—
Down, in, Jordan
I’m gonna wear a crown
We shall wear a robe and crown

Soon as my feet strike Zion
Lay down my heavy burden
Put on my robe in glory
Shout, tell of that story
Soon as I see Jesus
Tell him about my trouble
Put on my robe in glory
Shout, shout, telling my story
Shout, shout, telling my story
We shall wear a robe and crown
Go back to “I’m gonna wear a crown”.

How Deep Is Your Love                        Video

PJ Morton “Gumbo”

I know your eyes in the morning sun
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that you wander far from me
I wanna feel you in my arms again
And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love
Then you softly leave
And it’s me you need to show

How deep is your love?
Is your love
How deep is your love
I really need to learn
Cause we’re living in a world of fools, yeah
Breakin’ us down, yeah
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

I believe in you
You know the door to my very soul
You’re the light in my deepest, darkest hour yeah, yeah, yeah
You’re my savior when I fall

And you may not think I care for you
When you know deep down inside I really do
And it’s me you need to show

How deep is your love?
Is your love
How deep is your love
I really need to learn
Cause we’re living in a world of fools
Breakin’ us down, yeah
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

Never Gonna Break My Faith    (Revised 1/10)                 Video

Aretha Franklin, “Jewels in the Crown”

See new intro score attached at the bottom of page

My Lord, I have read this book so many times
But nowhere can I find the page
That says, what I experience today has any grace

Now I know that life is meant to be hard
That’s how I learn to appreciate my God
Though my courage made me try
I can tell you I won’t hide
Because the footprints show You are by my side

You can lie to a child with a smilin’ face
Tell me that color ain’t about a race
You can cast the first stones, you can break my bones
But you’re never gonna break
You’re never gonna break my faith

Faith and hope ain’t yours to give
Truth and liberty are mine to live
You can steal a crown from a king
Break an angels wings
But you’re never gonna break
You’re never gonna break my faith

My Lord, won’t you help them to understand
That when someone takes the life of an innocent man
Well, they never really won because all they’ve really done
Is set the soul free where it’s supposed to be?

You can lie to a child with a smilin’ face
Tell me that color ain’t about a race
You can cast the first stones, (you can) break my bones
But you’re never gonna break
You’re never gonna break my faith
Faith and hope ain’t yours to give
Truth and liberty are mine to live
(You can) steal a crown from a king
Break an angel’s wings
But you’re never gonna break
You’re never gonna break my faith

For those we lose before their time
I pray their souls will find the light
I know that the day will surely come
When God’s will, His will, will be done

Never, never, never, never gonna break
Never, never, never, never gonna break

You can lie to a child with a smilin’ face
Tell me that color ain’t about a race
You can cast the first stones, (you can) break my bones
But you’re never gonna break
You’re never gonna break my faith
Faith and hope ain’t yours to give
Truth and liberty are mine to live
(You can) steal a crown from a king
Break an angel’s wings
But you’re never gonna break
You’re never gonna break my faith

Never gonna break, never gonna break
Never gonna break, never gonna break
Never gonna break, never gonna break
Never gonna break, never gonna break my
(repeat ‘til cue)

Never gonna break, never gonna break
Never gonna break, never gonna break
Never gonna break, never gonna break
Never gonna break, never gonna break my
Faith!

BETTER                        Video

Hezekiah Walker

Come on everybody, put your hands together
It’s got to get better
All over the world
Listen to these words

People come
People go
Your life has been
Out of control
You’re confused
Don’t worry your soul

It will get better
It’s gotta get       better
It will get better
It’s gotta get       better
It will get better
‘Cause God
God is in control

Find a praise
Within your heart
within your heart
Hold it close
hold it close
Don’t ever
don’t ever depart
It gets cold in the night
But you’ll be
But you’ll be alright
Gonna get
It will get better
It’s gotta get       better
It will get better
It’s gotta get       better
It will get better
‘Cause God
God is in control

Whatever state I find myself in
I learn how to be secure
Knowing that God
Will supply all my need
And will work things out for my good

It will get
Better, better
It will get
Better, better
(repeat)

God is in Control!
