Verse 1 Who am I That You are mindful of me When You know I'm as sinful as I seem I can't wash the blood off my fingers So You use the blood to make me clean Chorus 1 So I bow a little lower than the angels But somehow it doesn't seem quite low enough There You are seated on the throne exalted I'm amazed that I'm the one You love So I bow and some how there You are I'm amazed Verse 2 Who are You To give Your life on Cal'vry Who are we That we would lead You there You arose calling us to freedom I don't know why You would even care CCLI Song No. 4767736 © 2006 Rick L.

Verse 1 How in the world did I get here How in the world do I leave The promised land is straight ahead But just beyond my grasp I'm trapped between the mountain and the sea I'm trapped between the mountain and the sea Chorus 1 If You're not gonna move this mountain If You're not gonna part the raging tides If You're not gonna move this mountain Will You help me across to the other side Verse 2 Why in the world do I deserve this Why is it too dark for me to see You said you'd never give us anymore Than we can bear But it feels like You have given more to me But it feels like You have given more to me Misc 1 (BRIDGE) Lord I know You never promised roses And I know the rain will fall in this life And I know a better man than me Walked the road to Calvary Sometimes it takes a cross to set us free Chorus 2 If You're not gonna move this mountain If You're not gonna part the raging tides If You're not gonna move this mountain Will You help me across to the other side (Will You help me bear my cross to the other side) CCLI Song No. 4938431 © 2006 Rick L.

Verse 1 Oh Lord You have searched me Oh Lord You have known me You know when I lie down And when I rise Oh Lord You're before me Oh Lord You're behind me You know my hidden thoughts My heart and mind Chorus 1 Where can I run from Your presence Where can I hide from Your Spirit If I could fly up to the heavens You are there If I could ride the wings of morning If I could swim the deepest sea Lord even then You are there with me CCLI Song No. 4939313 © 2006 Rick L.

One more night, one more show I leave a tip jar by the door I play my heart out dying on this stage Cause no one wants to listen anymore They knows me in this town I’m a long way from home Thirty dollars in gas From Twenty dollar in tips Don’t get you too far up the road. Chorus: Im tired of painting pictures for the blind And Im tired of singing when nobody’s listening And Im tired of feeling like a beggar in the night, living off your generosity And I’m tired of chasing down hot air balloons on rainbow Im tired of wishing I could fly Im tired of running down a dream that calls my name while it’s two steps ahead all the time One more night, one more road I’ll be driving til the dawn One more tune on the radio But it’s always someone else’s song I keep rolling chasing down this dream While it keeps running away And I’ll keep playing, trying to catch your ear Hoping you might hear me today. Bridge: One more night one more song One more town and I’ll be moving on One more prayer but the same old grace One more try in brand new place. (still I’m)

Verse 1: I used to wonder why Monday morning seemed so far from Sunday night. Why is there such a war to fight against the peace of Christ? You try to be consistent in the way that you live but never seem to stop starting over again. Chorus: You must die to live for Jesus Christ. You must surrender all tot he one who gave you life So that you no longer live but it's Christ in you. If there's one thing I'm learning in life You must die to live for Jesus Christ. Verse 2 I used to wonder where He had gone when my prayer had no reply Now I know that the silence was the answer. He's been here all the time. Now I'm finally learning to give my life away as I surrender all to Him everyday. Back To Chorus Bridge If Jesus lived to die for my sin Why shouldn't I die to live for Him? To Chorus

Mary’s Song Verse 1 Hey Mary, Jesus’ mom, I don’t know if you can hear But did you know my mother’s Mary too? I know you never met but I’m sure you’d like her well Cause I’m finding out that she’s a lot like you. Inside you Jesus grew, you came to love him well He is the bread of life to starving me. But Mary, my mom, carries Jesus in her too And she raised me up so I would follow Him. Chorus You were the first to show us how to carry Christ inside But my mother was the first one to show me. And I’ll bet my mother knows your son almost as well as you Cause she talks to him every single day. Verse 2 He Mary, I know you prayed for Jesus everyday You watched Him as He grew to know God’s will But Mary, my mom prayed for me each day too And I know she keeps on praying for me still. Back to Chorus Bridge: Mary did you know your son is my best friend? My mother Mary made sure that we met. And I know you never met her but I’m sure you’d like her well She’s a whole lot like you are I bet.

All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful: the Lord God made them all. the Lord God made them all. Each little flower that opens, each little bird that sings, He made their glowing colors, He made their tiny wings. He made their tiny wings. The cold wind in the winter, the pleasant summer sun, the ripe fruits in the garden: He made them every one. He made them every one. God gave us eyes to see them, and lips that we might tell how great is God Almighty, who has made all things well. who has made all things well. who has made all things well. Words By: Cecil F. Alexander Additional Words and Music By Rick Lee James:

Verse: We just got a sign at our church last month. We bought a marquee for announcements and such. The choir needed singers, we thought it’d work fine To write “Singers welcome” up on our sign One Saturday night the wind blew too hard And one of the letters flew off through the yard. Now who would’a known all the trouble there’d be? We just wanted singers but we lost the G Chorus: Who let these sinners into my church? The place is just packed and it could not be worse . Now all of the deacons are mad as can be Cause we just wanted singers but we lost the G. Verse: Now sweet sister Bertha just fell on the floor When she saw that biker gang walk through the door. And Melvin and Martha’s poor hearts skipped a beat When they saw those hippies sit down in their seats And Bob got a chill from his head to his toes When he saw that man with the ring in his nose. And I can’t believe my very own eyes There’s women in blue jeans and men without ties. To Chorus: Verse: That preacher of our, he just went insane He says it’s a miracle all of them came. He’s talking all crazy he must not be well He says it’s revival but we say it’s hell.
