I'd Like to Thank You Jesus (For One Thing)
Maybe I'm Amazed
It Gets Better
Holiday 'n' Heaven
Everything in the Garden
I'll Always Have Jesus
Clap Your Hands
If You Pray for Me
Where There is Love
The Battle is the Lord's
I'd Like to Thank You Jesus (for One Thing)
By Bryan Duncan & Jaymes Felix

Oh! come on now!
I'd like to thank you Jesus for everything you've done for me
But I'm sure I won't have the time for all the good things come to mind
So for now we'll start with one and then we'll see

I'd like to thank you Jesus for one thing you've done for me
When I give you full control
Then you give me back my soul
And you stir in me a song and let me sing

Ahh well that ain't bad, but I think we're just scratchin' the surface
'Cause when you make the Lord your king
There's always one more thing
That you can thank him for

I'd like to thank you Jesus for one thing you've done for me
You wash my sins away
They need washin' every day
And it's by your love and grace you keep me clean

Now give me a little time out lord
Let me just pull my thoughts together...
(horns)

I'd like to thank you Jesus for one thing you've done for me
It's just one thing at a time, all the good things come to mind
Stir in me a song and let me sing...

(bridge) One thing.... thank you for... one thing.... thank you for....one thing

(testimonies)
*I'd like to thank you Jesus for one thing you've done for me
When I thought all love was lost
'Cause I forgot to count the cost
Well you sacrificed and payed the price for me

*I'd like to thank you Jesus for one thing you've done for me
Your glory fills the sky
And I praise your name on high
It's you oh lord we praise and magnify

*I'd like to thank you Jesus for one thing you've done for me
I was once prepared to die
At the time I still wondered why
But you changed the time and gave back my life

*I'd like to thank you Jesus for one thing you've done for me
You healed my broken heart
When it was tearin me apart
Restored my love and now my heart can sing

Maybe I'm Amazed
By Paul McCartney

Maybe I'm amazed at the way you love me all the time
Maybe I'm amazed at the way I love you
Maybe I'm amazed at the way you pulled me out of time
And hung me on a line
Maybe I'm amazed at the way I really need you

Maybe I'm amazed
Maybe I'm a lonely man in the middle of somethin'
That he doesn't really understand
Maybe I'm amazed
M aybe you're the only one who could ever help me
Won't you help me to understand
Whoa!...... help me understand

Maybe I'm amazed at the way you're with me all the time
Maybe I'm amazed at the way I need you
Maybe I'm amazed at the way you help me sing my song
You're right there when I'm wrong
Maybe I'm amazed at the way I really need you

Maybe I'm amazed
Maybe I'm a lonely man in the middle of somethin'
That he doesn't really understand
Maybe I'm amazed
Maybe you're the only one who could ever help me
Won't you help me to understand
Oh!
Oh won't you help me!

Maybe I amazed at the way you
Maybe I'm amazed at the way you love me

You're so amazing!

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found
Was blind but now I see

Maybe I amazed at the way you
Maybe I'm amazed at the way you love me

It Gets Better
By Bryan Duncan & Chuck Barth

It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
it gets better
It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
it gets better

The love of God is sneakin' up on me
Just turned around and here it comes I see
Closer he gets
Closer I wanna be

It gets better closer to the love of my life

So never mind all the trouble I've seen
Just caught a vision on a trampoline
Tell everybody I'm takin' the highest road home

It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
It gets better
It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
It gets better

Once you've found the best thing in life is still free
There's no place else to go for me

It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
It gets better
It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
It gets better

One step further, never back
Am I there yet?
No, but I'm happy where I'm at
Just gets better closer to the love of my life

It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
It gets better
It gets better
Closer to the love of my life
It gets better

Holiday 'n' Heaven
By Bryan Duncan & Bob Harty

I shuffle down past the Third Street Gospel Mission
Jesus always saves a place there just for me
He's got his own band of angels playin' music
From a block away you can hear 'em sing
To a kick drum and a tamborine

Corner of Holiday and Heaven
No place on Earth I'd rather be

Goin' down to let my light shine thru a lonely window
A chance a lost soul will face up to the pain
I like the preachin'.... that little dance he does
So entertainin'
Seems to know just how to save my soul
Take my burdens, make me whole

Right there on Holiday and Heaven
No place on Earth I'd rather be

Now from the outside looks like
Just another lonely place
On just another hard road down town
Where the wind blows the trash around
In circles on dirty streets
But the joy of the Lord's is found
Where the heart of the new believers beat

Corner of Holiday and Heaven
No place on Earth I'd rather be
Right there on Holiday and Heaven
No place on Earth I'd rather be

Everything In The Garden
By Bryan Duncan

I was the first man in Eden...back in the Garden had a great little place
It was just me and the Lord and we never got bored...we invented the whole human race
Then we went for a walk in the evening...he said, "I can't help but notice you're blue"
So the next thing he said was, "let me borrow a rib and we'll just see what a woman might do"

Well, I slept through the whole operation ...awoke to find Eve at my side

And God said, "you can have everything in the garden
You can name everything that you see
But just remember one thing what the Devil may bring
And stay away from the fruit of that tree"

Well the first couple weeks was a pleasure... just enough for my new baby and me
We were never apart; we were lovers at heart....never came even close to that tree
'Til I left her alone unattended and she returned from her first shopping spree
it was a sweet little find that I shoulda declined when she handed that mango to me

Now were blaming everything on the Devil, but I remember what God said to me..

he said, "you can have everything in the garden
You can name everything that you see
Just remember one thing what the Devil may bring
And stay away from the fruit of that tree"

Back when the Earth was still all milk and honey
Couldn't get it right with only one rule to follow
Guess I need a lot of help from God Almighty
If I want to get back to that Garden tomorrow

Cause you can have everything in the garden
You can name everything that you see
Just remember one thing what the Devil may bring
And stay away from the fruit of that tree
Oh stay away from the fruit of that tree
Stay away from the fruit of that tree

Stay away, stay away from the fruit of that tree
Stay away from the fruit of that tree
Stay away, stay away from the fruit of that tree
Stay away from the fruit of that tree
Stay away, stay away
Stay away from the fruit of that tree

I'll Always Have Jesus
By Bryan Duncan & John Schreiner

Memory.... is the first to go
That's what people say when you're gettin old
But I'll always have Jesus
For the rest of my life

Eternally.... it's so good to know
He's still there for me if I lose it all
And I'd rather have Jesus
Than the rest of my life

All those times at the top of the world
Don't recall anyone there
So what good is a spectacular view
Unless you know Jesus is there
To share it with...

Faithfully... is the way I live
Each and every day I have left to give
'Cause I'll always have Jesus for the rest of my life

All those times at the top of the world
Don't recall anyone there
So what good is a spectacular view
Unless you know Jesus is there
To share it with...

Faithfully... is the way I live
Each and every day I have left to give
And I'll always have Jesus for the rest of my life

Clap Your Hands (duet with Ashley Cleveland)
By Bryan Duncan & Chuck Barth

I met a man of God I was on the low end of the straight and narrow road
I said, "I'm broke down on this highway again, on my way to victory in my soul."
Well he said, "The quickest way to victory, son, is to let the Devil see you smile."

Clap your hands, you know Jesus he loves you
Clap your hands and your feet will follow thru
Walk that walk 'cause it makes the Devil cry
Talk that talk when people ask you why you clap your hands

I get turned around sometimes and I'm trippin in the darkness, there for days
But I'm afraid to let my people down so I'm actin like I'm Moses and I know the way
He said just sing the Lord your song
Clap your hands and watch the lights go on

Clap your hands, you know Jesus he loves you
Clap your hands and your feet will follow thru
Walk that walk 'cause it makes the Devil cry
Talk that talk when people ask you why you clap your hands

Don't let 'em tell you where to turn or where to get off now
Don't let tell tell ya there's another way
No matter how it hurts or how they say it's supposed to feel
You just keep your eyes on the center line
And let this narrow road take you home

Clap your hands, you know Jesus he loves you
Clap your hands and your feet will follow thru
Walk that walk 'cause it makes the Devil cry
Talk that talk when people ask you why you clap your hands

Clap your hands, you know Jesus he loves you
Clap your hands and your feet will follow thru
Walk that walk 'cause it makes the Devil cry
Talk that talk when people ask you why you clap your hands

If You Pray For Me
By Bryan Duncan & John Schreiner

If you pray for me, tell the Lord I need him, mmmmm
I need to know he hears my prayers
And that he cares for me

If you pray for me, tell Lord that I love him, mmmmm
Even though it's hard sometimes
For me to see the light

Lately I have faced the darkest places
I have ever known
Well I hate to say it, lost my way
Found myself alone
'Cause I forgot that I have friends like you
Oh, who know just where to go

So, if you pray for me, tell the Lord I need him
I need to know he hears my prayers and that he cares for me

Oh, I guess I've tried to hide this lonliness
I'm so afraid to come around here
'Cause you might see right through me, yeah
You know my heart feels like an empty nest
A little help and understanding
Is what I'm so ready for
Don't let this hard expression fool ya anymore

If you pray for me, oh
If you pray, pray for me

If you pray for me, tell Lord that I love him, mmmmm
Even though it's hard sometimes
For me to see the light

So if you pray for me
If you pray for me
Tell the Lord I need him, need him
Tell the Lord I love him
I need to know he cares
And that he hears my prayers
And that he cares for me

Where There's Love (Duet with Donnie McClurkin)
By Bryan Duncan, Mark Baldwin & Mark Douthit

Where there's love there is hope
Find a thread and weave a rope, pull together
Where there's love there is hope
Play the music, find the note, sing together

Love is a world of bridges
We get across when we're tired of what this is
Our little islands of race, same face
All in the color we trust is not a just case
Not the kinda love we're used to
Hot, cold, bold, week old
Never knowin if it's gonna fold
Don't need more of

A love that starts in the hearts of men
Only by the grace of God
Mercy, let the love begin

Where there's love there is hope
Find a thread and weave a rope, pull together
Where there's love there is hope
Play the music, find the note, sing together

No time for no cryin'
For understandin that you won't find
But let another hundred thousand voices pray
in any language you can always say
God help me
To see each heart that you love like mine
Ahh red and yellow black and white
As I recall they're all still precious in his sight

A love that starts in the hearts of men
It's only by the grace of God
Mercy, let the love begin

Where there's love there is hope
Find a thread and weave a rope, pull together
Where there's love there is hope
Play the music, find the note, sing together

[Rap]

Where there's love there is hope
Find a thread and weave a rope, pull together
Where there's love there is hope
Play the music, find the note, sing together

He stretched his hands out for both black and white
We all are precious in his sight

The Battle is the Lord's
by V. Michael McKay

There is no pain the Jesus cannot feel
Oh, there's no hurt that he cannot heal
All things work together according to his perfect, holy will
Oh, no matter what you're going through
Remember God is using you, yeah
Oh, the battle is not yours
It's the Lord's

Oh, hey yeah! Oh yeah! Oh!

There is no sadness that Jesus cannot feel
Oh, no, no. There's no sorrow that Jesus cannot heal
Yeah, all things work according to God's perfect will
Oh yes they do! Oh!
No matter what you're going through
Remember God, remember God is using you
Oh the battle is not yours
The battle is the Lord's

Oh, thank you Jesus, I say now!
It's the Lord's, hallelujah, it's the Lord's!
Hey, hold your head up high and don't you cry
It's the Lord's, it's the Lord's, oh yeah!
That's right, yeah!

And let him know you're on his side, yeah!
And that battle is never gonna be yours, whoo!
Hey [scat singing]
Lord!

Don't have to fight that battle by yourself, no, no!
You're not alone, you're not alone!
You know that God is on your side
I got to tell you! God is on your side, whoo!
Oh, you got to know that you go no worries
Hey yeah!
You got to know that God is gonna see you through, whoo!
You got to know that the battle is not yours

Oh no! God, God is there to help you out, hey yeah!
You got to walk with Jesus
Oh and stay by his side
'Cause he's gonna see you through
You got to know that battle is not yours
The battle is not yours
The battle is not yours!
