Play It Again

Words & Music by Kenny Mann & Babbie Mason. © Hill Spring Music, Praise & Worship Works, Kenny Mann Music. (P) Spring Hill Music, Inc. All rights reserved. Used by permission.

Can you can hear that old conductor now striking up the band, playing melodies and the harmonies that sound so grand.
I cannot contain this sweet refrain this music in my ear and where it starts is in my heart listen to it ringing I just gotta sing it.

Do you know that joy that rises up when you praise the Lord, does your heart skip a beat when you move your feet to the joyful noise.
I cannot keep still, no peace until, I sing the glory down one thing is clear we can start right here melody is easy come along and join me.
Can you hear the sounding brass, the drums and the cymbals make my spirit dance the keys chime in on the improvising….
step aside and make room for me add my voice to the symphony one more time can I sing it please…

A Thousand Little Things

In the stillness of the morning, no one else awake, leaves of fire are falling
whispering autumn’s on the way. I steal some time and say a prayer for
all that lies in store, my heart is overflowing every dawn I’m thankful for..

A dozen purple flowers I brought home yesterday, the music in the laughter of children
as they play. Friends who really love me and walk with me through this life.
The one I love says I choose you again to be my wife.

A thousand little things, a thousand little things the moments of your mercy
every new day brings. A quiet porch, a sunset view, a lazy rainy afternoon,
a day with nothing much to do I’m filled with gratitude.

You Have A Way With Words

It rested on my table the cover caught my eye as if to call my name as I passed by.
I opened up the treasure to find the words so old, so new in letters of sweet love to me from You.
As I savoured every phrase your scarlet thread through every page my heartache and my sorrow melted away.

You have a way with words Your tender voice revealing the words of hope and healing in my moments of despair. No other love consumes my soul it’s the sweets sound my heart has ever heard, You have a way with words.

It wrapped itself around me refusing to let go, each word so fitly spoken wooing my soul.
You sealed it with a promise never to leave nor to forsake and You’re always there to guide me throughout the age.
So I find strength for every season and a faith beyond my reason it is my hope for every day and it will never, never pass away.

Still In Love With You

If, there were no words to say, If, roses bloom on cold December days, If, blue skies turn to grey, I will still love you.
and even if the sun won’t shine, the birds forget to fly this one thing I promise you….

I’ll be there even if there’s no tomorrow, I’ll be there even if the rains refuse to fall, I’ll be there if the stars no longer shine,
till the end of time I’ll always be in love with you.

If, winter snow falls in June, If the night forgets the moon, If, music forgot its tune, I will still love you.
Cold winds blow and seasons change, but through it all my love remains the same….

Saving Grace

I am amazed by the power of Your grace. I am amazed that You took my sin and same

Words

Words by Wayne Kirkpatrick & KimHill. Music by Wayne Kirkpatrick & Gordon Kennedy ©1991 Emily BootheInc.
(BMI)/Edward Grant Inc. (ASCAP) / Brown N Serve Music (ASCAP). Arrangement Chris Smith & Debra Mayo.

Careful what you’re saying, someone could get burned there’s a fatal fire in words.
Careful when you’re talking, think before you’re heard there’s a deadly poison in words.

‘Cause once you say it, you can never change it, and you can’t really take it back.
Like a shooting arrow, hurling through the dark, words are piercing when they hit their mark.

Sticks and stones will break you, but the bruise can heal while those words are cutting deeper still,
‘Cause once you say it, you can never change it and you can’t really take it back

Once the heart is stung, the pain can be eternal Oh to curb the tongue, you know weapons can be verbal.

Backing vocals: Debra Mayo, Louise and Simon Gudger

Walk On

Some find their solace in a bottle of gin some find it still better when their horse comes in
it’s a way to deal when life ain’t grand you just pack it up, hang your head, and fold your hands.
She worked all day long on a street named despair in a town with no pity, she was going nowhere
well funny how her heart, well it grew colder and colder with the weight of the world crashing down on her shoulder
but when the going gets tough and the tough are long gone..

Walk on, walk on, walk on, walk on, walk on, yeah.

You can take your words made of psycho-babble I don’t need no shrink to see my life’s unravelled
pay you a mountain of gold to candy-coat my lies I’m at the end of my rope, time I realise that when the going gets tough and the tough are long gone….

Well I know we ain’t seeing the best of times and I long stopped dreaming crazy dreams of mine but these days grow so long and my heart grows weak
and honey we ain’t living on no easy street but when the going gets tough and the tough are long gone its just You and me JESUS left to walk…..

Completely

Words & Music Sam Mizell © Copyright: Universal Music – Brentwood Benson Publ., Word Music LLC
 
The secret of life is letting go, the secret of love is letting it show, in all that I do, in all that I say right here in this moment.

The power of prayer, is in a humble cry, the power of change, is giving my life and laying down, down at Your feet right here in this moment.

Take my heart, take my soul, I surrender everything to Your control and let all that is within lift up to You and say I am Yours and Yours alone, completely.

This journey of life, is a search for truth. This journey of faith, is following you every step of the way, through the joy and the pain right here in this moment.

Right here, right now and for the rest of my life hear me say…

Backing vocals Debra Mayo, Drums Nic Burrows

Who told the sun where to stand in the morning, and who told the ocean you can only come this far
and who showed the moon where to hide till evening whose words alone can catch a falling star

Well I know my Redeemer lives I know my Redeemer lives all of creation testifies this life within me cries.. I know my Redeemer lives

The very same God who spins things in orbit, runs to the weary, the worn and the weak
and the same gentle hands that hold me when I’m broken they conquered death to bring me victory.

He lives to take away my shame, and He lives forever I’ll proclaim that the payment for my sin, was the precious life He gave
but now he’s alive and there’s an empty grave…

Now in my house there’s been a mercy killing the woman I used to be’s been crucified and the death of this woman was a final way of revealing in a spiritual way to live I had to die. Now if I let the dead woman linger in me I might get a little idle in my ways so I’m going down to the celebration river gonna take this dead woman down to a water grave.

I’m goin down to the river my Lord, I’m gonna buried alive I wan to show my Heavenly Father the woman I used to be has finally died.

When I think of where I’m going in terms of where I’ve been I’m so glad to know my Lord that I’ve been born again.
