All songs copyright 1995 BEMANA Music





   WISE AS A SERPENT, HARMLESS AS A DOVE

Some people tell me, they just don't know
Don't know what's wrong or right,
Don't know which way to go.
They're too busy livin' life to get involved today,
Yeah, Jesus said turn the other cheek,
He didn't say look the other way.

Chorus :
Ya gotta be wise as a serpent, harmless as a dove
Gotta fight for what is right ya gotta do it in God's Love
Ya gotta be wise as a serpent, meek as a lamb
It's OK to be slow to speak,
Don't have your head down in the sand.

Confronting hatred, intimidation,
Disguised as the wise protecting the rights
Of a free and sovereign nation.
They'll tolerate you, oh you may progress,
As long as the song you sing has the proper ring
And you always tell them yes.

Ain't always easy to stand by and see.
The lies people buy when they close their eyes
To the truth they don't wanna believe.
Some will not listen, they'll go their own way,
Yeah, the way they choose is the way to lose
And they won't know 'til it's too late.

There's lots of evil we can fight.
There's lotsa truth that we can cut loose,
Lotsa darkness needs our light.
I guarantee you, you will be misunderstood,
Aw, but what the heck can you expect
From men that call evil good?

Bad information, can mess up your direction.
Half truths and lies can slip on by
Without some diligent detection.
Lambs are innocent, serpents are wise,
Don't be a lamb that's ignorant
And get the wool pulled over your eyes.

I NEED AN EXPERT

I need an expert to pay my money to,
I need an expert to tell me what to do,
I need an expert to get me back on track,
I need an expert don't ya know,
My itchin' ears they need a scratch.

I need an expert to delve into my past
I need an expert to interpret all my facts
I need an expert to make it very plain
I need an expert don't ya know
That can show me who to blame.

Chorus:
I know my problems could not be my fault
Musta been my environment or the way that I was taught
Someone else messed up my head and got me all confused
And I know that if I tried real hard
I'd remember that I been abused

I need an expert to tell my troubles to
I need an expert to help me tie my shoes
I need an expert to lay my soul out bare
I need an expert that can show me what to wear

We don't know how to live anymore,
It's all way over our heads.
How did we find the truth without Dr. Ruth?
Is it really true that common sense is dead?
Is there a good excuse for the selfish lives we've led?
Is it easier to let someone else run our lives instead?

I need an expert I saw it on TV
The symptoms that they listed there are definitely me
Sweaty palms, forgetfulness,
It don't take much to get me fumin'.
I must need some deep therapy or,... maybe I'm just human!

I need an expert to help me sort this out.
Should I try to live my own life, or should I job it out?
Freud and Jung and Maslow, analyzin' my behavior
I need an expert, I need a guru,
Some might even say I need a Savior.

Chorus

I HAVE WANDERED

I have wandered through this world,
And I have wondered what it's all for
I've been lost without a reason to live
And I've been tossed without a reason to give.
Then I wandered to the cross
And watched in wonder as Jesus paid the cost
Almost too simple to believe
With trembling hands I reached out to receive...I received.

No more aimlessness no more insecurity.
No more wandering the way was clear and I was free.
I was free and I could see where I was going.

Then I wondered why the way grew hard
And I wandered away and I dropped my guard
Looking for what I'd already found
Hearing a voice behind me but too proud to turn around
Helping no one else, could not even help myself
Old sins made me blind I longed for what I'd left behind
I left it all behind. How could I get back?

Then I wandered through God's word
And I wondered if I would be heard
Now His mercies are new every day
He left the ninety nine to find the one who went astray.

I DESERVE HELL

Some people tell me that I am the best
They seem to think I'm better than the rest
They do not see the struggles down inside
They do not see some of the sins I fight
The way they view me, they look up to me,
Cannot see through me and I'm just a man made out of dust

I saw a man was hangin' on a tree
I laughed and said I'm glad that isn't me
And then I took a look into His eyes
And to my shame that's when I realized
He took my place there, there's so much grace there,
Saw it in his face there,
And it's bringin' me down to my knees

CHORUS:
I think we need to get something straight,
I'm not so great I don't always do so well
Time and again I remember and it humbles me
What Jesus did for me 'cause I deserve hell
He took my place there, there's so much grace there,
Saw it in His face there And it's bringin' me down to my knees

Why do we think God owes us paradise?
"Cause we don't kill and we are really nice"
Forget the evil we have thought and done
Forget the fact that we ignore His Son
He took our beating, we leave Him bleeding,
Say we don't need Him
And we think that the Father won't care

I fail to do the things I know are right
I've run away when I should stand and fight
I've been self righteous and I've harbored hate
I've put off crucial things 'til it's too late
I'm so self centered, even though He's entered
I'm still a sinner And it constantly drives me to Him.

CHORUS

The hidden beauty of this whole sad song
Is He still loves me even when I'm wrong
And when I want to run and hide my shame
He comes and looks for me and calls my name
He wants to use me, He won't accuse me,
Though He sees through me
He remembers I'm made out of dust

I'll never feel the pain that I deserve
'Cause of the faith I have in Jesus' Word
I'll never suffer torment in that flame
'Cause of the love I have for Jesus' Name
He took my place there, there's so much grace there
Saw it in His face there And it's bringin' me down to my knees

MAIN STREET

The sun shines down on a quiet little town,
Full of quiet little people minding their own.
The daily routine is all that's ever seen,
"If you don't bother me, I'll leave you alone."

Chorus: There's a death house on Main Street,
Blood runs under concrete,
No one sees the babies they're flushing away.
It's all done in silence, they cover the violence,
But the children they've murdered will rise up someday.

Manicured lawns, and the paper comes at dawn,
The smell of fresh coffee starts the new day.
The comfort is numbing and our pleasures keep us humming,
Let's make one more dollar it's the American way.

CHORUS

The family's together and we've had such lovely weather,
Get ready for church now, let's all wash our hands.
The sermon was nice, it contained some good advice,
The week lies before us, let's get on with our plans.

Chorus: (Add) There'll be hell to pay.

The nightime is falling, you can hear the crickets calling.
The town is asleep now, the hour is late.
And sometimes I wonder, as I watch the people slumber,
Just how can they tell when they're awake?!

Chorus: (Add) There'll be hell to pay, you can't turn away.

IT JUS' HAPPEN'!

Chorus: O, it jus' happened, you see How lucky can we be?
That it all jus' fell into place, In the middle of the outer space.

O the sun, he shines, and he makes the summertime,
And he makes the garden grow,
Here's something else you may not know,
If he was a tiny bit farther away,
It would be ice and snow here every day;
And if he was jus' a little bit closer,
The earth would be a universal toaster.

CHORUS

O when Darwin was on his boat, takin' notes in the Galapagos,
He was mad at God that day, so he threw everybody's soul away.
And with each stroke of his pen on the paper
He was makin' man his own creator
It's amazing such a tiny molecule
Could grow up to be an educated fool.
O yes, he said it...

CHORUS

Well it must appeal to man to think there is no master plan.
And if we are all alone, well then each is on his own.
And if there is no God who has made us,
Well the proving of it seems to evade us.
The only evidence that I can really see,
Is that we have an ape's morality.

CHORUS

Well, kind gives rise to kind and the blind still lead the blind.
How long must we evolve before we get our problems solved?
And I am growing very weary of this fairytale you call a theory.
If you can't come up with a first cause, you might as well believe in Santa Claus!
And don' tell me... CHORUS

WARS

There will be wars and rumors of wars
There will be signs in the earth and the sky
There will be prophets, both true and false,
Some will deceive, some will guide.
There will be suffering, there will be pain,
For those who dare to call on My Name,
I tell you this now, so you won't despair,
I'll always be there

Chorus: Long after the last man lies dead on the ground,
Long after the earth is gone I'll still be around,
I've been where you are, don't fear what you see,
Come follow Me

There will be those who will lead you astray
They'll try to confuse the ones who obey.
There will be many whose love will grow cold
Because of the sin that's out of control.
There will be those who cry "peace" when there's none,
They'll say live for money, they'll say live for fun.
Those under my care will make the right choice,
My sheep know My voice.

When I went away I said I would return
For those who've been faithful and those who will burn.
I come as a Lion to judge and make war,
Come to Me now, I stand at the door.

There will be peace in the midst of the fight,
There will be light in the dead of the night,
There will be strength in the hearts of the weak,
There will be answers for those who will seek.
There will be joy at the end of the tears,
There will be forever at the end of the years.
It's a life that won't end
And it all can begin when you ask me in.
Repeat chorus

TRUTHOPHOBIA

You don't seem to care about what is real,
You only seem to care about how you feel,
You don't even care who's fate you seal.

Say you were born that way and it's not a sin,
Didn't Jesus say you must be born again?.
Your arguments are wearing thin.

CHORUS: Truth--o---pho--bi---a (4x)

You want a same sex lover so you start to date,
Want a same sex spouse so you finally mate,
Want a family but you can't pro-cre-ate.

Homophobes, Nazis narrow minds,
That's how you stereotype those who decline,
To accept the truth you've re-defined.

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
We choose to be the way we are .
Even you're amazed that you've gone this far,
Is evil real, does it make us slaves?
To our own desires when they're unrestrained?.
Do you really want to know? Are you a Truthophobe?

It's a condition not confined to just a few
We all want to justify the things we do
We want just enough truth to support our view

Some men's heart's will fail for fear,
As the times get worse and the end gets near,
It's not enough to just be sincere.

CHORUS

YA GOTTA BE FAITHFUL

CHORUS:
Ya gotta be faithful, ya gotta know just what you want
Ya gotta be faithful, you can't be no dilettante
You got to lay it on the line, you got to focus in your mind
You got to step out in a definite direction
And don't get sidetracked by some meandering affection

I know a man, he was a cleaner out of toilets
But he had a dream and he would not let his circumstances spoil it
He followed his true calling even when faced with disaster
His diligence paid off I know 'cause today he is my pastor

CHORUS:
Ya gotta be faithful, ya gotta do it every day
Ya gotta be faithful, or you'll just waste your life away
Indecision makes you wait and fear will make you hesitate
You got to turn your back on comfort and convenience
And even praying must be followed by obedience

I know a man, he had a tough one to decide
To build up his own fortune or to build up children's lives
One choice would have set him up his life could be a beach
But he knew life is more than just a job, so he gave it up to teach

CHORUS:
Ya gotta be faithful, ya gotta listen to your heart
Ya gotta be faithful, you gotta take a breath and start
You can sit and say what if but you will never get a whiff
Of sweet success and you won't know what you missed out on
And who can tell how many people you walked out on.

Success is not always measured in dollars and senseless gain
It's often weighed in the self-denial you give to ease somebody's pain
And when all the good you've done seems to end up in a loss
Just remember the whole world thought it was the end of things
For Jesus at the cross

I know a man, he loved to play that rock and roll
And the message of his music was enough to save your soul
He struggled just to make ends meet but his talent was not for sale
It's reserved to serve the least of these in the prisons and the jails

CHORUS:
Ya gotta be faithful, you won't miss out on your reward
Ya gotta be faithful, it won't be easy but you won't get bored
When it looks like everybody's gettin rich,
Well you may be tempted to switch
You got to stand or fall on the thing that you believe in
And don't forget that other guy's grass can be deceivin'
And even praying must be followed by obedience
And don't get sidetracked by some meandering allegience
Ohhh, ya gotta be faithful

T.V. LOVES ME

T.V. Loves me this I know the T.V. Guide, it tells me so.
Little minds to it belong They are weak, but the signal's strong.
Yes, T.V. loves me, Yes,T.V. loves me Yes,T.V. loves me,
The Guide, it tells me so.

Family's out and gay is in, Loving God is now a sin.

When I'm tuned in I'm feeling fine, As I kneel before my little shrine.

This little shrine of mine, I'm gonna let it shine,yeah!
This little shrine of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little shrine of mine, I'm gonna let it shine,
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine..................yeah!

Prophets of the picture tube, Like Sally, Oprah, and Donahue,
Tell me how things ought to be, Pre-digested thoughts for me.
Dan Rather loves me, Tom Brokaw loves me, Dave Brinkley loves me,

Football games and Reebok ads Nordic Trac and weight loss fads,
Mesmerize my captured mind, While I sit on my fat behind.
Yes, T.V. loves me, Yes,T.V. loves me Yes, T.V. loves me,

Illusions pour from my T.V. Electronic lobotomy
The truth I found out in the end, From the One who died and rose again.
Yes, Jesus loves me, yes Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me,
The Bible tells me so.

WHO DO YOU TURN TO?

Who do you turn to when the nightime is fallin' ,
Who do you turn to when the mornin' don't come?
Who do you turn to, what is it you do when it's comin' undone?
Who do you turn to when there's no one there to hear you ?,
Who do you turn to when the bottom falls out?
Who do you turn to, what is it you do when you're drowning in doubt?

CHORUS:
Wherever you bend your knee, bow your head, close your eyes
Where you go to get away, escape the pain, get revived
You best be sure it's the right one, this god you take your troubles to
There's only one God Who has died then came alive then, the rest are idols,
Even if your god is you.

Who do you turn to when your lover up and leaves you?
Who do you turn to when your friends all say goodbye?
Who do you turn to, what is it you do when you're wonderin' why?
Who do you turn to when your enemies surround you?
Who do you turn to when they have you in their hand?
Who do you turn to, what is it you do when you face your final stand?

CHORUS

There is a Man, Who's closer than a brother.
There is a Man, Who's love will never stop.
There is a Man, Whose love is never ending,
Ever faithful and it's solid as a rock.

Who do you turn to when the thing won't go together?
Who do you turn to when it just won't start?
Who do you turn to, what is it you do when it's fallin apart?
Who do you turn to when you're losin your direction?
Who do you turn to when you spin out of control?
Who do you turn to, what is it you do when you're losin' your soul?

WILL I EVER GET BETTER?

Seems I always am content to live my life
Doing the least that God requires
But all the while I'm giving in to each and every one
Of the least of my desires.
And then I wonder why I blunder
Into situations I should never be.
All my excuses for my abuses
Are pretty weak but they sure work for me

CHORUS:
Will I ever get better? Will I ever grow up?
Will I ever get tired of sin and say enough is enough?
Will I ever get wiser? Stop thinkin' I'm wise?
Will I ever stop bein' short-sighted
And start seein' life through Your eyes?

And I fear I may be missing out on something
I must have or feel or be,
But this lover I am kissing is just distracting me
From what I'm called to be.
Still I run after fun and laughter and sensations
Like a kid after a toy.
Then in the quiet, after I try it,
I fight off guilt and try to call it joy.

Chorus

Bridge:
Will I ever get better? Will I ever be wise?
I like feelin' good But I hate my compromise.

And I'm not sure that I can follow.
I've been on board a while and I can see it's not a scam
But when I fail that's when I wallow
In the age-old lie that tells me
"Hey, that's just the way I am"
Will You change me? Can I trust You?
That You'll make good on everything You've said?
Then I'll let go of the life that I love
So I can find the life You want for me instead.

Chorus

LIVING IN SODOM

Roving bands out in the streets
Attacking man, attacking beast.
And you think you are safe beneath
The halo of your silence.
You turn your head and look away.
"To each his own" I hear you say.
But they'll knock on your door someday
And touch you with their violence.

Living in Sodom, Sodom and Gommorah

You had to choose so here you came
To prosper and to make a name.
You made it but you still feel shame,
Your compromises vex you.
You used to know what's wrong or right
But now the difference seems so slight
To take a stand might cause a fight;
Your public might reject you.

Living in Sodom, Sodom and Gommorah
You finally hit the bottom,
But the truth is coming for ya.

Truth comes like an angel to some
Showing safe passage out of destruction.
A life of lies will keep some from recognizing
It's their only hope,
So they curse and they grope for the door.

The population all takes part, self deception is an art
With softer lives and harder hearts,
Perversion overtakes them.
You feel as though you're in a daze.
Is there a way out of this maze?
A beam of light cuts through the haze.
Your conscience is awakened.

Living in Sodom, Sodom and Gommorah,
You finally hit the bottom,
But the truth is coming for ya.


DON'T WE KNOW?

It just started with a little thought,
Just started with a fantasy
He never thought that he'd ever get caught
Never thought it would come to anything
Just started with a little look,
Just started with a word or two
He never wanted to break his vows
But before he knew it, it grew and grew

Don't we know by now?
Play with fire and you're gonna get burned
We forget somehow in the heat of the moment
Everything we've learned

Every feeling that he felt was real
He'd forgotten how good sin can feel
She was everything a woman should be
Everything he thought his wife could never be
All the passion he had lived without,
All the years of lukewarm love
Had brought him to this compromise
But he was almost sure it was from above

Don't we know by now?
It takes a little fire to keep the love alive
We forget somehow the heat that made us
Husbands and wives

It seems so easy to let our love fall through
The cracks of our daily lives
Just takes a little tryin' to keep our love from dyin'
Instead we scratch our heads
When they are gone and wonder why
When they are gone we wonder why

Looking back with saddened eyes
At the wreckage of the lives he wrecked
What a fool to buy his own lies
How blind not to see the final effect
Children lost to God and him
Things would never be the same again
Every feeling that he felt was real
He'd forgotten how bad sin can feel

Don't we know by now?
Play with fire and you're gonna get burned
We forget somehow
In the heat of the moment everything we've learned
It just started with a little thought,
Just started with a fantasy...

CHOICES

In the middle of the ocean a ship is going down
Some passengers and crew survive,
But most of them have drowned.
The lifeboat's overcrowded, it's difficult to row
So the captain decides at gunpoint
Who will stay and who will go
The old, the sick, the weakened,
Are left behind to make more room,
So the young, the rich, the beautiful,
Can escape that awful doom.
And at the captain's trial months later,
The survivors stood with him.
" The captain did no crime," they testified.
After all, he did save them.

CHORUS:
You make a choice you live with it forever
And if it's wrong then someone's gonna die
And if it's right the sacrifice might kill you
Depending on who's wishes you deny
...They could not forget the terror in those eyes.

"I am pro-choice" the young girl said.
The counselor just smiled.
"But what if..." then she hung her head,
"I choose to keep this child?"
The counselor's smile changed into a condescending grin,
"Why, you are just a child yourself, so pretty and so thin."
And as she left the clinic, she once again was free.
But in more ways than she had counted on,
She really felt empty.
But she straightened up and threw it off,
She knew she must be strong,
But in the years ahead she never lost the sense
That somehow, this was wrong.

Chorus:(add)
...Sometimes she thought she heard her baby cry.

Between a rock and a hard place
Where it is so hard to choose,
Do you always take the easy way,
Where you have the least to lose?
Do you run from inconvenience and responsibility?
Treat yourself with lenience and avoid the penalty?
Since the day that sin began inside the heart of man,
Evil found its place.
It dominates our race by just one choice.

A woman in a garden is staring at a tree
And wonders if the fruit of it will kill or set her free
She calls her husband to her, so he can eat it too
She says" The taste is very pleasant
And it will release the god in you."
Another time, another garden, a man faces another tree,
The fruit of it will kill Him for sure,
But will set so many free.
And in anguished prayer he cries out
"Is this the only way?"
The cost of love was counted
And the price of death was paid.

CHORUS:(add)
...For God so loved the world He chose to die.

WOULDN'T IT BE GREAT
(TO BE A WARD OF THE STATE?)


I'm tired of workin' so hard just to pay my rent.
I'd give up all my self-respect
To be adopted by the government.
The gain just ain't worth the pain It's gettin' pretty old.
I could end my financial strain As long as I do what I'm told

Wouldn't it be great? Wouldn't it be great?
Wouldn't it be great to be a ward of the state?
Wouldn't it be great to be a ward of the state?
Like a rabbit in a hutch Or a hamster on a wheel,
You might lose a little freedom But you'll never miss a meal.
Wouldn't it be great? Wouldn't it be great?

I'll have no more aches and pains
The state has promised to provide
All the healthcare I will ever need
All the remedies I wanna try.
And when my health starts lookin' bleak,
Around the age of sixty-five,
I'll look forward to a peaceful sleep
Thanks to state-assisted suicide.

Wouldn't it be great? Wouldn't it be great?
Wouldn't it be great to be a ward of the state?
Wouldn't it be great to be a ward of the state?
Oh whenever you get sick you won't have to pay a dime,
There's just one little trick, try not to die while you're in line.
Wouldn't it be great? Wouldn't it be great

It just stands to reason sometimes we all need help,
To get us through those hard times
When we can't help ourself,
But should we never question the benevolence of those
Who say we'll never make it
Unless we're under their control?

I'll no longer have to be confused
About the way that I should worship God.
A brand new version of the Good News
Has been given the official nod.
Separation has been achieved between the church and state
The government just took over everything
And that put an end to that debate.

Wouldn't it be great? Wouldn't it be great?
Wouldn't it be great to be a ward of the state?
Wouldn't it be great to be a ward of the state?
You can go to church and pray
But your Holy Book is flawed,
The leaders say it's dangerous,
That's why it's been outlawed.

Wouldn't it be great? Wouldn't it be great?
Wouldn't it be great to be a ward of the state?
Wouldn't it be great to be a ward of the state?
Ooooo Yeah... ...ha ha ha, wouldn't it be great? Y e a h...

ALL YOU NEED

You don't need a divorce lawyer,
To make a point with your spouse
You don't need to get your palm read
So you can know if you should buy that house
You don't need to pay a hundred dollars
An hour for some bad advice
You don't need to put up with everything,
Just to prove that you are nice.

CHORUS:
All you need, get on your knees before the Savior
Just cry out, lay down your doubt,
That's how you pray for all you need, all you need

You don't need to knuckle under
To what some religious leader says
And you don't need to bow down to some statue
Of somebody that's long since dead
And you don't need to jump on board the latest religious fad
And you don't need to dig up your past,
And tear open every wound you've had

CHORUS

You don't need to make a million dollars
Before you turn sixty-five
And you don't need to have a secret love affair
So you can feel like you're alive
And you don't need to be a know-it-all
To prove you've got a brain
And you don't need to do whatever you do,
Just to cover up the pain.

CHORUS

LIKE YOU USED TO DO

Spoken: She was at the end of her rope,
So she pleaded with him...

I want you to touch me like you can't stand not to
I want you to kiss me like it was the breath of life
I want you to lose yourself in my consuming passion
I want you all over me all through this night

These are things I know you can do
I'm not asking the impossible
I just want you to love me like you used to do

Spoken: she begged him...

I want you to listen when I pour my heart out
I want you to talk to me like you really care
I want you to fight back
When we've got to work through it
I want you to lead the way through our dreams
And take me there

These are things I know you can do
I'm not asking the impossible
I just want you to love me like you used to do,
Like you used to do
Like you promised to, like you used to do

Oh, I can't do this on my own,
I didn't get married to be this alone,
It takes two to make love grow like it used to do.

He never answered so she finally stopped askin'
She never wanted it to happen it just did
She found a lover that she wasn't really after
Now the only time he sees her
Is when she drops off the kids
When he asked her why she looked at him in disgust
And said,"Ha you really don't know, do you?
It's because he loves me baby like you used to do,
Like you used to do Like you promised to,
Like you used to do

Oh, mornin' comes and he awakes
It was all a dream and it's not too late
She's still there next to him so he wakes her
Like he used to do, like he used to do
When love was new, like he used to do
Like he used to do...when love was new
...like he used to do

HIDDEN HEARTS

He was a champion and a hero, respected and revered
She was a comforter and a counselor,
Honored for her prayers
Through temptation, pain and tragedy,
They never were alone
And in the power of love,
Beneath the hand of God, they built a home.

CHORUS:
Hidden hearts, that no one ever saw
Only a few even knew they ever lived at all
But their fame will not be found in the lights of a marquis
But in the kind of people
They grew their children up to be.

Now the years pass by so quickly
And as they look around they see
The monument to their true love, their beloved family
It's a joy that many squander
As they search for grander things
And surely they will miss,
The simple pleasures gift God intended life to be

Chorus:
Hidden hearts, that no one ever saw
Only a few even knew they ever lived at all
But their fame will not be found in the lights of a marquis
But in the kind of people
They grew their children up to be.

Hidden hearts, hidden hearts,
That no one ever saw only a few even knew
They ever lived at all
But their fame will not be found in the lights of a marquis
But in the kind of people
They grew their children up to be.
But in the kind of people they helped their children be.

EVERY KNEE

CHORUS:
Every knee shall bow Every tongue is gonna confess
Every knee shall bow Every tongue is gonna confess

You can say that you're unhappy
You can shake your little fist at God
You can take your case right to His Face
And everybody 'round you might applaud
You can strut and you can posture
You can cuss and you can fume
But when you stand alone before His throne
I think you'll sing a little different tune

CHORUS

You can say your life is peachy
You have everything you need
You're the picture of moderation
In every public and private deed
You feel so good about you,
There's just one thing that you ignored
And when your life is through
And God's lookin' at you
I think you're gonna wish you'd called Him Lord!

CHORUS

You can say that you're religious
You go to church all the time
You do good deeds, you know the creeds
You say Jesus was a real nice guy
But you don't believe you need a savior
You don't believe that you deserve to burn
Are you gonna wait 'til it's too late before you finally learn?

CHORUS

HOW DYNAMIC

The winds of revival are blowing down from the north
And don't you know the word of God
Is bein' powerfully spoken forth
And from the south manifestations everybody should see
Surely prove how dynamic faith in Christ can be.
And from the south manifestations everybody must see
They surely prove how dynamic faith in Christ can be.

On the TV I see a man wavin' his new book
And I can tell he be holy by his fiery look
He say the words he has written, they astound even he
And they will reveal how dynamic faith in Christ can be.
He say the words he has written, they astound even he
And they will reveal how dynamic faith in Christ can be.

Bridge:
There are some preachers;
Politicians use the Name to sustain
Some game they are playin', some cheap claim to fame
And we're easily fooled when faith's measuring rod
Believes all that glitters must be God

Well I remember my daddy and the suffering he endured
Just so the well bein' of our family might be secured
And I watched him walk through life in faith and integrity
And I saw how dynamic faith in Christ can be
Through life's daily enticements with integrity
And I saw how dynamic Jesus Christ can be

Some preachers, politicians use the Name to sustain
Some game they are playin', some cheap claim to fame
The tempest, earthquake and fire are impressive to view
Remember, Jesus came down to earth
Maybe we should too
Yeah, the tempest, earthquake and fire,
They are impressive to view
A still, small voice says Jesus came down to earth
Maybe we should too

YOU ARE THE ONE

Lover of the unlovable Forgiver of the unforgivable
You are the one Who makes my life livable
You are the One You are the One
Finder of the lost Unblinder of the blind
Cleaner, Restorer Renewer of my mind
You are the One You are the One

There is no other beside You,
There's no one else I can turn to
Alone and helpless in my anger and despair
I cry out to You for answered prayer

Changer of the Unchangeable
Rearranger of the unarrangeable
You are the One Who makes the unattained attainable
You are the One You are the One
Toucher of the untouchable Reacher of the unreachable
You are the One Who makes my hard heart teachable
You are the One You are the One

Is there a thing too hard for you?
Is there something you cannot do?
Frustrated and confused I cry out for relief
Oh won't You help my unbelief?

Breaker of the unbreakable Shaker of the unshakable
You are the One Who makes Your Presence unmistakable
You are the One You are the One

KEEP ON GOIN'

You, keep on goin' though you fall
He's not saved you, after all just to let you down
No, He's always there, when you think He might not care,
He's right in front of you, clearin' the road
So you can follow on
He never pushes you, No,
He'll always pull you through.

You, keep on goin', don't look back
Don't keep coverin' up your tracks,
Now you're free to live in peace
When you're hearin' the accuser,
Hey don't listen to that loser,
He only wants to destroy
Everything God's given you for joy
Jesus never pushes you, No,
He'll always pull you through

So when you're tired and you're facing your sin
Don't give up and don't give in
And when fear comes along
And your doubts are so strong,
Remember that labor of love He began in you
And let Him make it grow

You, when you see where He will take you
Oh and what He wants to make you,
You've still not seen it all.
No, and if you will endure, and be faithful in your part,
You'll receive the Savior's heart,
He'll give to you His heart
