Awake now oh sleepers
Arise now and shine
Shine now, yes, shine on
Arise All His People
who are Mine.
The Trumpets are Sounding
The sound of trumpets are sounding!
At last it’s our victory!
Look up the angels are shouting!
Hurray! It’s our victory!
What You See Is What You Get
I’ve searched upon the ocean blue
Trying to find what I once knew
I looked in here and over there
But my past would haunt me through
One Last Chance
Remember when we walked this life
Carefree and without shame?
What I’d do to have it all back now,
Humbly giving up all that I’ve gained.
You Knew His Name
Put away your filthy ways
And let it wash on down the drain,
Perhaps you’d like to take a bath
Or let it all fall in the rain.
Ignoring people, that’s what you do
Especially if they don’t have a clue
Unless you see a light inside
And sense they won’t run and hide
I’ve opened up my heart to You
Given all I’ve ever had
A ring, a watch, a ruby too
It all means nothing in comparison to You.
Last night I watched the news man say:
“Looks like a blast of bombs to pass…”
“America is looking dark and gray…”
But I do know this one thing, dear Lord
You’re getting stronger in me today.
I never thought I’d ever find
A mystery so clearly defined.
One day when all my life had changed
You came to see me defiled, in all my shame.
I remember all so clearly
When you whispered in my ear,
An avalanche, an olive branch
I’ve pressed you down and near.
A distant thunder
I hear you cry
With each moment you pass by,
Why, oh Lord, have you so come
Inside the threshing floors?
Awake a harvest!
You all will see!
As I extend and bow my knee,
You too, can join the Holy One
Cantering softly, further living eternally.
Oh my, Dear Shepherd, you tend to your flock
Open scales you shed, you fly
For now walk, an open stalk
Tilting back, you dandle not
Oh, Dear Shepherd, array and shine
It’s time for your glory, yes, divine
A glitz of shine, you are but mine
I remember You as I drink the wine
The bread I break
Of You I take
Remembering what You have done.
So now I tilt and bow, sharp sword
March forth, proclaiming Your word.
Good shepherd you are a shining star
Your rod it shines the brightest of noon day.
Onto the flock you tend you lock
Your gaze intently at His face.
Intently I break of Your bread
I Do Take
Holy matrimony, I do make
A covenant of pure and true of your love
A destiny born, to never forsake
Money is gone
Forget mowing the lawn
There’s something much deeper for me
I now see
A chance has been given
A “class A” gold ribbon
I shout loud and proudly for Him!
I do not take lightly
This gift I hold tightly
I one day will kiss.
I hold on to what’s true
Not in part, but full view
His bride I walk, and mutter not
But sing His truth and glory shall reign!
Lord, remember when we used to tread across a wild a rushing sea?
I never thought in a million years I would be standing here with Thee.
Eternal bliss I walk as if this life is but a dream,
It all will wash away one day all the darkness gone down stream.
Remember when we used to stand upon that rock you build so firm?
Thank you, Lord, for teaching me there was much for me to learn.
In union now, the One I love, in matrimony bliss.
Thank you, Lord, You are so kind to extend to me this kiss.
Awake I am prepared to fight this town of Chicago,
I pray right now, that You’ll allow, it’s destiny to glow.
Aware that what must come are trials and despair,
I ache, my heart, a crying start that will lead to full repair.
My brethren, awake this hour now, to fight now across the globe,
This hour now of suffering, will have an ending much like Job
Love you lots now, Lord, I take my sword and lift it up on high,
Now take and lift me up with You, as I walk with You in stride
Chin up, and straight ahead I walk in victory,
For what’s to come, I now will run, to make my mark in history.
Bumble bees and trail mix;
My feet, they hurt, its half past six.
If you ever have a random thought;
Gander yonder aloft an open trough.
A trail of the ocean blues;
Will lift right up, when you hear the news.
The King, you see, is coming soon!
Before you know it, its half past noon!
Awake and lift your head up high;
It’s kind of like a lullaby.
“Hi!” you say, “another day!”,
I wonder if there’s use to pray.
Oh, my shepherd, awake it’s time;
There is so much more than to make a dime.
Do you remember when your eyes were gloom?
And how the Lord has prepared a room?
Get up and strap your banner high!
It’s time to stand and say goodbye.
“A friend I was, but am no more”
The world is done, march forth to implore.
A life with full meaning filled with divine;
No longer in vein, eating bread and sweet wine.
A bitter life, I’ve traveled much more;
But humbled I am, on my knees at the door.
Over the hill I’ve gained quite a life;
Now I see it means nothing but strife.
Amen, I can see now, it all looks so clear;
It’s too bad it took me so long to get here.
But now looking back I’d stand for the truth;
Jesus, He knew what would get me pulled through.
