On Holy Ground          Video

Barbra Streisand “Higher Ground”

 VERSE 1:
When I walked, through the doors, I sensed His presence
And I knew, this was a place where love abounds
For this is a temple, the God we love abides here
Oh we are standing, in his presence
On holy ground

CHORUS (Choir sings oohs)
We are standing, on holy ground
And I know, I know there are angels all around
Let us praise, praise God now, praise Him anyhow
For we are standing, In His sweet presence, On holy ground

VERSE 2:
In his presence, I know there is joy beyond all measure
And at His feet, sweet peace of mind can still be found, ooh…
For when we have a need, He is still the answer
Oh reach out and claim it
For we are standing, on holy ground

We are standing     Oh we’re standing,
On Holy ground      Yes, its holy, holy ground
And I know               And I know
there are angels      There are angels
all around                 I can feel them all around
Let us praise            Let us praise, let us praise
Praise God now      Praise God now, praise Him anyhow

For we are standing,

in His presence on Holy ground

Let us–                      Let us

Praise—Oh Let us

God Is/Natural Woman          Video

This is Jonathan’s “mash-up” of the James Cleveland classic God Is and Aretha Franklin’s Natural Woman

Looking out on the morning rain
I used to feel so uninspired
And when I knew I had to face another day
Lord, it made me feel so tired
Before the day I met You, life was so unkind
But You’re the key to my peace of mind

God Is, God Is

God Is, God Is

God Is my all—-and all

When my soul was in the lost and found
You came along to claim it
I didn’t know just what was wrong with me
Till Your love helped me name it
Now I’m no longer doubtful, of what I’m living for
because You make you happy I don’t need to do more

God Is, God Is

God Is, God Is

God Is my all—-and all

Oh what You’ve done for me (what you’ve done for me)
You make me feel so good inside (good inside)
And I just want to be, close to you (want to be)
You make me feel so alive

God Is, God Is

God Is, God Is

God Is my all—-and all

God is my all—and all

(repeat til cue)

On Time God          Video

Dottie Peoples and the People’s choice chorale

CHORUS:
He’s an on time God, yes he is
Oh, oh, oh, on time God, yes he is
Job said
He may not come when you want him
But he’ll
Be there right on time
I’ll tell you
He’s an on time God, yes he is

VERSE

Well you can ask
The children of Israel
Trapped at the red sea
about that mean old Pharaoh
And his army
They had water all around them
And Pharaoh on their track
(You know what he did)
But out of nowhere
God stepped in
And built a highway just like that
(Well let me tell you)

Sing Chorus

VERSE 2

You can ask the five thousand,
hungry souls he fed
On the banks on the river,
With two fish and five loaves of bread
What a miracle, He performed for the multitude
What He did way back then
He’ll do today for me and you

He’s an on time God, yes he is

Oh, oh, oh, on time God, yes he is
Job said
He may not come when you want him
But he’ll
Be there right on time
I’ll tell you
He’s an on time God, yes he is

He’s on time

He’s on time

He’s on time

Oh yes, He’s on time

(REPEAT)

He’s an on time God, yes he is
Oh, oh, oh, on time God, yes he is
Job said
He may not come when you want him
But he’ll
Be there right on time
I’ll tell you

He’s an ontime God (repeat)
He’s an on time God,

yes He is

I’ll Fly Away          Video

Randy Travis, Worship and Faith

Some glad morning when this life is o’er
I’ll fly away

To a home on God’s celestial shore
I’ll fly away

I’ll fly away, oh glory, I’ll fly away
When I die, hallelujah, by and by
I’ll fly away.

When the shadows of this life grow have grown
I’ll fly away
Like a bird from prison bars has flown
I’ll fly away.

I’ll fly away, oh glory, I’ll fly away
When I die, hallelujah, by and by
I’ll fly away.

Just a few more, weary days and then
I’ll fly away
To that land where joy shall never end
I’ll fly away.

I’ll fly away, oh glory, I’ll fly away
When I die, hallelujah, by and by
I’ll fly away.

He Won’t Let Go          Video

Gloria Gaynor, Testimony

You may be down and feeling low
Tossed by the wind, wherever it may blow
You’re just confused and filled with doubt
Lost in the dark, and you can’t see no way out

There is a mountain                   for you to run to
Where there’s a rock                 that will shelter you
There is a man,                          that you should know
Stretch out His hand                  to pull you close

And if you’ll

hold on, He won’t let go
He won’t let go
If you’ll just

hold on, He won’t let go
He won’t let go

There is a voice, you should listen to
There is a choice for what you ought to do
The only step that you need to take
Is To the side and let Him lead the way

He knows your heart, and He feels your pain
He knows your scars, every one by name
He knows your flaws and he knows your fears
He’ll bring you joy to replace your tears

And if you’ll

hold on, He won’t let go
He won’t let go
If you’ll just

hold on, He won’t let go
He won’t let go

Take a look at me, I’m living proof – Ooh
Trust and believe, He’ll do the same for you – for you
It’s nothing we can earn, it just takes a little faith – Ooh
It’s nothing we deserve, it’s just His amazing grace

And if you’ll

hold on, He won’t let go
He won’t let go
If you’ll just

hold on, He won’t let go
He won’t let go

(repeat chorus til cue)

Shower the People          Video

James Taylor

You can play the game,
You can act out the part,
Though you know it wasn’t written for you.
Tell me how can you stand there with your broken heart,
Ashamed of playin’ the fool?

When one thing can be to another, it doesn’t take any sacrifice.
Oh, Father and Mother, sister and brother,
If it feels nice, don’t think twice,

Just shower the people you love with love,
Show them the way that you feel,

Ooh——-
Things are gonna turn out fine,
If we only will,

If we only will, only–

Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel,
Things are gonna be much better
,

If we only will,

You can run but you cannot hide, this is widely known,
Now what you plan to do with your foolish pride,
when you’re all by yourself alone

Once you tell somebody the way that you feel,
You can feel it beginning to ease,

I think it’s true what they say
about the squeaky wheel, always getting the grease,

Just shower the people you love with love,
Show them the way that you feel,

Ooh——-
Things are gonna work out fine,
If you only will,

Do as I say, yeah

Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel,
Things are gonna be much better
,

If you only will,

INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE

Shower the people you love with love

Show them the way that you feel

(repeat til cue)

They say in every life, sometimes the rain will fall

Over like a pouring rain, pouring down, make it rain

Rain, make it rain down love,

Love, love, love a sun shower

Make it, make it make it rain down love

A sun shower, a sun shower

Everybody, everybody, love somebody

You’ve gotta love someone

Love, love, love

 

Last time!!

Shower the people you love with love

Show them the way that you feel

Things are gonna be much better

If you only will………..
