We all need to sit back and to listen To the voice that speaks into our hearts If we hear what God is really saying We’ll be better equipped to do our parts We’re too quick to rush into action Before we’ve heard a single word from God We all need to sit back and to listen To the voice that speaks into our hearts If we hear what God is really saying We’ll be better equipped to do our parts We’re too quick to rush into action Before we’ve heard a single word from God We can only do the good that needs to be done With the leading of the Father, the Spirit and the Son When you take the time to listen for His call There’ll be nothing can ever stop you at all If you try to do it all in your own power It will fail you in the most crucial hour When the word from God comes through to you so clear You can be sure you can follow through without fear For if He brings you to it you know He’ll see you through To stop you there’s nothing any demon can think to do Sometimes we are led into a place to fail As a test to show how God’s will always prevails We can only do the good that needs to be done With the leading of the Father, the Spirit and the Son When you take the time to listen for His call There’ll be nothing can ever stop you at all If you try to do it all in your own power It will fail you in the most crucial hour When you take the time to listen for His call There’ll be nothing can ever stop you at all If you try to do it all in your own power It will fail you in the most crucial hour It will fail you in the most crucial hour.

I’m with Jesus I’m with Jesus I’m with Him who bled and died for all my sins Yearning for His near appearing Even so, come Lord Jesus I’m with Jesus I’m with Jesus I’m with Jesus I’m with Him crucified then raised again Pining for Him, waiting on Him Persevering with my Jesus I’m with Jesus Many will say in that day, Lord, Lord Did we not do many wonders in Your Name? And the Lord will say, I never knew you Depart from Me! But I’m with Jesus I’m with Jesus I’m with Him sacrificed to pay my debt Thrill and longing The Day is dawning Maranatha, come Lord Jesus My Lord Jesus Scoffers will come in the last days and say Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep All things continue as they were from the beginning All I know is I was blind But now I see Chained with no escape in mind Yet now I’m free All who have eyes to see Let them see All who have ears to hear Hear what the Spirit says Listen Listen to what the Spirit says Choose for yourselves this day Whom you will serve But as for me and my house We will serve the Lord We will serve the Lord We will serve the Lord So I’m with Jesus I’m with Jesus I’m with Him Who deemed our lives worth more than His Light has dawned Which side are you on? Pray you’ll say I’m with Jesus Time has come Whose side you on? Pray you’ll stay And I’m with Jesus I’m with Jesus Come Lord Jesus …

Only one of the ten returned to thank You Now I want to come back, it’s the least I can do I cannot imagine all that You’ve done for me If I knew now what I’ll know then, I’d fall to my knees I long to say thank You, Lord From the bottom of my heart Thank You, Lord From the bottom of my heart It’s my desire to worship So that’s where to start I long to say thank You, Lord From the bottom of my heart Radical gratitude that’s limitless Is something I long to feel and express Humble and empty of any control Desperately poured out from deep in my soul I long to say thank You, Lord From the bottom of my heart Thank You, Lord From the bottom of my heart It’s my desire to worship So that’s where to start I long to say thank You, Lord From the bottom of my heart In spirit and truth sustained from above Extravagantly grateful for Your selfless love Your measureless mercy and endless grace And everlasting life when I’ll see Your face When I’ll see Your face I long to say thank You, Lord From the bottom of my heart Thank You, Lord From the bottom of my heart It’s my desire to worship So that’s where to start I long to say thank You, Lord Thank You, Lord Thank You, Lord From the bottom of my heart ...

I was reading my Bible ‘bout 1 AM I was praying, praying I needed to know about the Great I Am Who is holy, yes holy I read the stories and I couldn’t believe I was a doubter, doubter So many miracles I couldn’t conceive But I had to, I just had to Reading through my Bible Searching for the truth Praying to the Father To forgive the sins of my youth I read it all I didn’t compromise No cheating, no cheating I learned the devil is the father of lies He’s a liar, such a liar I read about the end and a place called hell People are wailing, wailing It’s not a place that’ll suit me well I’m praying, oh I’m praying Reading through my Bible Searching for the truth Praying to the Father To forgive the sins of my youth I read that heaven is the place to be I believe it, I believe it It’s where I want to live for all eternity Forever, yes forever Salvation is a gift that is offered to you Freely, freely Accepting Jesus is all you’ve got to do And repent, repent Read through your Bible Search for the truth And pray to the Father To forgive the sins of your youth Reading through my Bible Searching for the truth Praying to the Father To forgive the sins of my youth ...

Their head takes up more space than it occupies That’s self-indulgence, it’s not about the size Basking in the limelight is where they find their muse The soundtrack in the background is the protagonist blues They suck out all the air when they enter any room But that’s them being thoughtful pushing out all the gloom They know everyone feels special hearing all their news Set on endless repeat is the protagonist blues The acclaim is well-deserved, it’s called entitlement All that attention rest assured is heaven sent Living the dream is just paying their dues Number one with a bullet, the protagonist blues They have great expectations for God on down Each wonderful performance is the stuff of renown Walking the red carpet is not an option to refuse The song remains the same, the protagonist blues Everywhere you go, there’s one in every crowd Imaginary audience, talking pretty loud They don’t recognize themselves, they cannot read the clues They sing the full twelve bars of the protagonist blues Goodness knows what they’ll do when the spotlight fades away They’ve never had to keep a broken heart at bay With nowhere to run, they’ve got no self-defense It all starts sinking in, everything was false pretense Everything was false pretense Everything was false pretense ...

Where are my people? Where, oh, where is my tribe? Never felt so unwelcome Nor such a chilling vibe Superficial exchanges Games of musical chairs Muted estrangements Fear of man brings a snare Such is my lamentation This mortal disconnect Eternal polarization For the outcast and misfit A company of strangers Alone in the madding crowd And while we occupy the same space I’m prone to speak the quiet part out loud I’m not among friends Everywhere I look I see strangers Vexed by the zeitgeist Exceedingly numb Awaiting a reply That will never, ever come Shut out and ghosted Shined-on and ignored Shunned and cold-shouldered Should not be that we are so forlorn And not among friends Everywhere I go I meet strangers Alienation This world’s a lonely place to be Isolation, dislocation Vulnerable to the predatory Enter the green lady Relinquished all control The bargain she made me Ravaged this hapless soul Over half a century ago: family strife A great sadness engulfed my whole life Finger of blame firmly pointed square Something died inside of me right then and there The accuser deals his tell The black memory card Exploiting the natural To incapacitate the heart Mired in reminiscence Despairing with hopeless regret Tempted to self-sabotage Trending away from healing lament And not among friends Everywhere I look I see strangers There is a Friend closer than a brother Whose wounds are faithful, and born for trouble When I’m forsaken by my father and mother You will take me in, Who loves at all times Waiting on that sea change for the Golden Age This present world makes no such promise So until that Day I’m not among friends Everywhere I look I see strangers I’m not among friends Not among friends Everywhere I look I see strangers Not among friends ...

He Replied 04:54
Don’t you be deceived By the words that they’ll say Claiming to be saviours And then lead you astray Then cheat you and rob you And then leave you for dead There’s a rumour blowing in the breeze That wars are coming soon If you listen closely to the leaves You’ll hear them whisper to the moon So don’t be frightened, and don’t be afraid Just remember the word your Master once said The time has not come No it’s not the end It’s no time to panic Nor is it time to pretend That you didn’t know Or you hadn’t heard It’s all written right there inside of God’s Word It’ll be country v. country And race against race If you wait long enough They’ll be up in your face There’ll be a shortage of food And earthquakes everywhere Diseases will run rampant and no one will care The birth pangs are hurried Time’s running out It’s no time to be worried And no time to doubt You’ll be persecuted and arrested You’ll be hated and you’ll be detested You’ll be murdered for what you believed Grace be to God for the eternal life you received So don’t be frightened, and don’t be afraid Just remember the word your Master once said The time has not come No it’s not the end It’s no time to panic Nor is it time to pretend That you didn’t know Or you hadn’t heard It’s all written right there inside of God’s Word The time has not come No it’s not the end It’s no time to panic Nor is it time to pretend That you didn’t know Or you hadn’t heard It’s all written right there inside of God’s Word.

In this soulless 21st century Zombified by design unto captivity The dopamine that is technocracy Addicted to mediocrities Such days of pervasive hypocrisy Suppressing truth so wickedly and so brutal Rules for thee, not for me, doublespeak We know they lie since their lips are moving And they ain’t stopping for nothing Unrepentant, unrelenting Gaining breakneck speed Fixated with greed, bereft of decency Raised a child of the 70s Three or four television stations Played outside, not behind endless screens Life sure seemed way less complicated Now it’s virtual reality A portal to fantasy Viral contagion Spiral out of control into world domination When the grid goes down – strikes the urban sprawl When the grid goes down – global collective withdrawal When the grid goes down – how will we cope? When the grid goes down – wherein lies your hope? Opposed the computer till age thirty-five Supposed it the forerunner to antichrist Nowadays can’t seem to tear myself away Praying for drastic measures of escape In the race to the nadir It’s not the mushroom cloud vapour Nor the red button finger twitch But rather fear the kill switch When the grid goes down – and all comes to naught When the grid goes down – this web in which we’re caught When the grid goes down – via cyber attack When the grid goes down – the penultimate hack When the grid goes down – tyranny of urgency When the grid goes down – net zero ambiguity When the grid goes down – immoral clarity When the grid goes down – force you to your knees Disinformation Misinformation Deactivation Recalibration A dizzying array of dials, knobs, and levers A.I. displacing the obsolete beleaguered Shopping malls, server farms, all in roboticized To monetize food must be digitized, weaponized Supply chains collapse It’s class warfare – lawfare Riots and chaos ensue right on cue To the rescue: a new world order When the grid goes down – emergency broadcast When the grid goes down – climate apocalypse forecast When the grid goes down – good reason to suspect When the grid goes down – nefarious intent When the grid goes down – assumed we were blessed When the grid goes down – took it all in jest When the grid goes down – the systems crash When the grid goes down – the first will be last Queue up around the block Stretch forth your hand, inject the microdot All your data stored under your skin Small price to pay to save yourself and all your kin Connectivity, the Internet of Things Secure that credit score Lest you be banished offline To starve …

Old man evil tests his might on me Seeing the light of Jesus within me He seeks to lure me away from grace But I'll stand firm and meet him face to face His whispers echo, beguiling and sly A cunning serpent with venomous lie But I resist his deceitful embrace Determined to remain in divine grace In the depths of darkness, I'll rise above Bound by faith and guided by love With Jesus as my shield, I'll never sway Confronting temptations that come my way Through storms and trials, I'll endure For in my heart, faith remains pure No matter how old man evil may strive In God's embrace, my soul shall thrive In the depths of darkness, I'll rise above Bound by faith and guided by love With Jesus as my shield, I'll never sway Confronting temptations that come my way So, let him try his hand once more For in this battle, I'll even the score With Jesus as my guide and shield I'll conquer the darkness, never to yield In the depths of darkness, I'll rise above Bound by faith and guided by love With Jesus as my shield, I'll never sway Confronting temptations that come my way Old man evil, your power is futile For I'm rooted in a love so beautiful In God's presence, I find solace and peace As His divine grace grants my soul release In the depths of darkness, I'll rise above Bound by faith and guided by love With Jesus as my shield, I'll never sway Confronting temptations that come my way In the depths of darkness, I'll rise above Bound by faith and guided by love With Jesus as my shield, I'll never sway Confronting temptations that come my way …

I love you More than words can tell And I have died For men going through hell Going to hell Greater love hath no man than this That a man lay down his life for a friends And you are My friend For now and forever Amen I’m by your side Through hellfire, and sorrow, and pain And I hear your every cry Overtures of hearts broken Such is shame But don’t be ashamed Greater am I who is in you Than he that is in this world And lo, I am with you always Even to the end of the world Even to the end of the world Even to the end of the world The end of the world I love you And if only you loved Me true We could share In the joy, in the peace of My prayer You’re My prayer Greater love hath no man than this That a man lay down his life for his friends Friends Friends And you are My friend For now and forever Now and forever Now and forever Amen.

The Lord Himself descends from heaven With a shout of command The voice of the archangel God’s trumpet blasting on demand Caught up, snatched away It’s harpazo in the Greek We’ll be changed in an instant Immortality complete All the saints there gazing At Him, brighter than the sun Lamp trimmed and burning Come, Jesus, come In connection with this mystery Nobody knows the day or hour When the Groom returns To claim His Bride in power Eye hasn’t seen, ear hasn’t heard No one has imagined what’s begun In the twinkling of an eye Our resurrection will be done All the saints there gazing At Him, brighter than the sun Lamp trimmed and burning Come, Jesus, come The dead in Christ rise first Then those alive come following Death is swallowed up in victory O death, where is your sting? We meet Him in the clouds We’ll recognize Him right away And so we will be with the Lord Forever from that day All the saints there gazing At Him, brighter than the sun Lamp trimmed and burning Come, Jesus, come I mean we say we understand But we haven’t got a clue Caught up in an instant To that sudden rendezvous The dead in Christ rise first Then we who are alive Together in the clouds We will all arrive To meet Him in the air We’ll recognize Him right away So we shall be with the Lord Forever from that day All the saints there gazing At Him, brighter than the sun Lamp trimmed and burning Come, Jesus All the saints there gazing At Him, brighter than the sun Lamp trimmed and burning Come, Jesus, come Come, Jesus, come …
