Always There

(The Prodigal & Jesus)

Prodigal:
Broken heart, broken life,
Straying from the Lord I knew,
Scarred within from my sin,
Helplessly I call, “Lord, Jesus.”

Jesus:
Always there. I was always there.
From the moment you called my name
Always there, I was always there.
You are mine; now you can’t be the same.
You are pardoned and sealed; by my stripes you’re healed.
And I’ll be always near, always here from now on.

Prodigal:
Jesus, Jesus,
Forgive this wayward child.
Take my heart; take my life, all that I own,
You are Lord, Lord of my life.

Duet ensues with Jesus and the prodigal

AWESOME GOD

Ps 46:10 47:2

Beyond the bounds of space and time,
Above the stars—Transcendent,
God dwells in light beyond approach
In glory all Resplendent.

Among exploding galaxies
His never-ending Presence
Spans suns and moons and stars in flight
With His eternal Essence.

Within the hearts of twice-born sons
Closer than breath or spirit,
This Awesome God abides with us,
His presence now inherent.

Exalted—He—throughout the world
And King of all creation;
Be still and know that He is God,
And praise Him with elation!

Bring Me to Your Holy Hill

Based on Psalm 15

Lord bring me to Your Holy Hill,
Where I can cling to Your perfect will,
Where I can dwell in Your home forever,
And never be moved.

Help me no evil to repay,
Four hundred-ninety times a day.
Lord, help me keep my word and promise;
Keep me true and keep me honest.

Lord, guide my tongue not to defame,
But only glorify Your name,
To speak with love, to speak what’s true,
To honor those who honor you.

Lord bring me to Your Holy Hill,
Where I can cling to Your perfect will,
Where I can dwell in Your home forever,
And never be moved.

Creation’s Hallelujahs

Words by Jeanne Zaugg

From the deepest recess of God’s mind,
Came the genesis of Earth’s design.
Came the sky; came the soil, came the rocks and trees,
Came the mountains, plains and thundering seas,
Singing Creation’s Hallelujahs.

Chorus: Hallelujahs! (melody 1)

From every corner of the Earth,
God freed His children from death’s curse.
Reborn, their ears can hear His voice;
Reborn, their spirits now rejoice,
Singing Creation’s Hallelujahs.

Chorus: Hallelujahs! (melody 2)

To the God Who fills the Universe,
With planets, suns, and laser bursts,
From the blackest hold to the brightest star,
To galaxies both near and far -
Resounding Cosmic Hallelujahs!

Chorus: Hallelujahs! (melody 1,2,3 layered)

Eternal Vine

Praise to You, Eternal Vine,
Who grips this fragile life of mine,
That when my grasp cannot endure,
Your hold on me remains secure.

Praise to You, Eternal Vine,
Whose mighty arms around me twine,
That when my confidence should fail,
My faith in You will still prevail.

Not like a tree that earth can shake,
Nor like a branch that wind can break,
But like a great ETERNAL VINE,
Are you, O Christ, O Savior mine.

Praise to You, Eternal Vine,
Who grips this fragile life of mine,
That when my grasp cannot endure,
Your hold on me remains secure.

THE FINISH LINE

I made it Lord - You always knew I would.
But there were times I didn't think I could.
When I picked up the cross Jesus handed me,
I wondered how long that it would be -
To THE FINISH LINE.

When I tripped and fell, You always picked me up,
And poured Your Living Water in my cup.
To be sure I'd keep on, You sent Jesus ahead,
And He finished the race when His blood was shed -
At THE FINISH LINE.

I ran the course the very best I could,
Sharing Christ with everyone I should.
Then the crowd stood in awe one unsuspecting day,
As your hand touched mine and pulled me away -
Across THE FINISH LINE.

Oh, it feels so good just to see Your face
At the end of this - Life's toughest race.
But I pray for all those that I left behind:
Please help them keep up; help them keep on -
To THE FINISH LINE.

Free

Words by Jeanne Zaugg

The world is pushing in on me; I feel like caving in.
So many big decisions, don’t know where to begin.
Searching for purpose, I just can’t see my worth.
Why has God put me here on this perplexing earth?

I heard about this other guy, no choices to be made,
No goals beyond survival, no future but the grave.
Two lives found purpose when Jesus said to me,
You need to be fulfilled, and he needs to be free.”

Chorus:
Free to be free,
God’s perfect plan for you and me,
To share the love and forgiveness that brought us liberty.
We must live our lives to set others free.

I heard about this other gal who lived not far away.
Trapped by past decisions, she sold her soul to pay.
Two lives found purpose when Jesus said to me,
Reach out and let her know that I can set her free.”

Chorus:

From One Degree of Glory

Glancing in my dust mirror I saw “Old Nature” reappear,
And thought that I could never be the person God designed.
So I tore away my mask of pride and let the rays from Jesus’ eyes
Warm my face and flood my soul. and felt a change begin.

Chorus:
And now He’s changing, changing, changing me from Glory unto Glory
As I behold my Lord.
With unveiled face I look at Him and feel the change in me begin,
From one degree of glory to another.

Old Nature‘s still a force within, so daily I must die to sin,
And step around the traps and snares that keep me from my Lord.
Beneath His all transforming gaze, my scars and flaws will be erased.
And when I stand before His throne, a perfect child He’ll see.

Chorus:
Because He’s changing, changing, changing me from Glory unto Glory
As I behold my Lord.
With unveiled face I look at Him and feel the change in me begin,
From one degree of glory to another.

GIVE IT ALL

Words & Music: Jeanne Zaugg

The widow’s last cent fell from her trusting hand;
Moses’ simple rod led to the Promise Land.
A young boy had an average lunch;
Little David just had stones.
What has God placed in your hand
to make His mercy known?

Chorus:
Give it all-----------, give it all
Give it all-----------, give it all.
What has God placed in your hand?
What has He given you to spread Good News
to every land?
What has He given you and trusted you to share?
Give it all. Give it all.

God knows what we need and always gives His best.
Open your hand and see what you possess.
Whatever He’s given you,
don’t hold it in reserve.
With all that He’s given to you,
give all that He deserves.

Gods of Wood

Words by Jeanne Zaugg

Gods of wood, gods of stone, helpless deities,
Hearts so cold, ears so deaf,
Who could put their trust in these?
Gods of hatred, gods of night, nothing can appease.
Fearful subjects writhe and moan,
And never know the Savior’s Peace.

God’s of paper, gods of steel, tributes to my past.
Though I know the Savior’s love,
Still worship gods that cannot last.
Though much received and much required, yet, I ignore God’s voice,
To share what Christ has given me,
And help the broken heart rejoice.

Chorus:
On wings of love, with words of peace,
Send me, O Lord, to those who please for release.
With all that I have – all that you give,
Take me and use me, Lord, that others might live.

Can I let this world go on, pleading for release,
While I, freed by God’s love,
Selfishly enjoy His Peace.
Is MY heart as cold as stone? MY ears – deaf to their cries?
O Lord, ignite my soul again,
And to the heavy heart I’ll fly.

Chorus:

HEART OF GOD

Heart of God full of compassion,
Beating with fervent love,
Arms of mercy ever stretching outward

Healing every broken vessel
That it may live again.

Bring my heart in turn with yours.

It’s There in Black & White
Mission Rap by Jeanne Zaugg

Section A for Home Missions
Volcanoes rumble, smoke and pop; San Andreas wants to drop.
Hoodlums don’t respect the cop; nukes and bombs no one can stop.
Lotsa little babies cryin’; moms are wringin’ hands and sighin’
Dads are cheatin’ and denyin’; plenty teens are inta lying.

Kids on pot, speed ‘n crack; beggin’ parents for more slack,
Leavin’ home to join the pack; downhill trip – no turning back.
Men in bars guzzlin’ beer; battered wives hide in fear.
It’s no doubt the time is near for Christ to re-appear. SO WHATCHA…

…WAITING FOR? It’s there in black and white.
“Go out and share God’s Word, and teach ‘em wrong from right.”
He didn’t aks ya please, or even if ya mind.
So get on your feet, and get off your – designer jeans and
GO - - - , GO - - - GO and take the news.
Take it to both Blacks and Whites, Take it to the Jews (and Gentiles).
Give them God’s Word; tell them Christ is Lord.
Tell them we’re all sinners, and THAT can’t be ignored.

Section B for Foreign Missions
Slahvey, Tindi, Pol and Kur: people still don’t have God’s Word.
I know you think that sounds absurd when you have heard and heard and heard.
Bound by fear, bound by hate, hungry souls deteriorate.
No lovin’ God to celebrate ‘cause YOU and I PROCRASTINATE.

Millions die without the Bible; don’t you know that we are liable.
Much received and much required; so don’t tell God that you’re too tired.
Many people, young and old, hardened hearts and sprites cold,
Cannot read or can’t be told – NO PRECIOUS WORD TO HOLD. So WHATCHA…

…WAITING FOR? It’s there in black and white.
“Go out and share God’s Word, and teach ‘em wrong from right.”
He didn’t aks ya “please,” or even if ya mind.
So get ON your feet, and get off your recliner and
GO - - -, GO - - - GO and Give God’s WORD.
Give it to the guy without it! Translate! Teach it! Share it! Shout it!
Give ‘em God’s Word; go and don’t delay.
Tell them Jesus Christ is Lord; tell them He’s “THE WAY.”

CODA repeats once and fades out second time.
It’s There in Black & White!
(Teach it!)
It’s There in Black & White!
(Preach it!)
It’s There in Black & White!
(Give it!)
It’s There in Black & White!
(LIVE IT!)
ON the word “white,” part of the group says the words in parenthesis.

Keeper of My Soul

Keeper of my soul,
Calmer of my fears,
The Healer of my broken heart
Dries my incessant tears.

Provider of my needs,
Shepherd of my path,
God empowers my weary steps
When each feels like my last.

Author of my joy,
Hope of Eternity,
The Lifter of my downcast head
Was lifted up for me.

Savior of my soul,
Defender of my faith,
In God’s loving hands I rest
Where I’m forever safe.

RESURRECTION POWER

Stand fast and pray, O Christian;
The prince of hell prepares for war.
But the battle is not ours alone, so we must never cower,
For Jesus goes before us in His Resurrection Power.

See the mountains crumble; watch the demons fall.
The child of God is on his knees before the Lord of All.
The prayer of faith, the Word of Truth tears every stronghold down
Because Jesus goes before us in His Resurrection Power.

In Christ the Lord there is no fear.
We have His Spirit and His strength to face this final hour,
For Jesus goes before us in His Resurrection Power.

We Saw His Star

The prophet said a king would come
To David’s throne in Bethlehem.
We saw His star, and hope within us stirred.
Is this the One for Whom Creation yearns?

This child, Messiah, Savior, King
Made Herod fear and angels sing.
Would such a great and lofty deity
Receive weary travelers such as we (“are” implied).

CHORUS:
We saw His star and followed on
Cross mountains, plains, and far beyond.
Searching for Him of whom all Heaven and mortals sing
We found the Prince of Peace and King of Kings.

This pauper-king, so small and frail,
Our costly gifts before him pale.
We came adorned in pompous earthly dress;
He came robed in Truth and Righteousness
