                                           God Needs You
                                           God of Love
Adam & Eve                                 God's Creation
A Furious Voice for the Truth              Good Day to Die
Again                                      Hang On to the Lord
All I Want                                 Happy Christmas To Y’All
Ambassador                                 HEAR ME
American Man                               Heavenly Help
Another Golden Time                        HE’S COMIN’ AGAIN
Anymore                                    HEY GIRL SHINE
Anytime                                    Home
Aquiah                                     Hooked (Juicy Lie)
Are We Strangers Again Today               HOPE OF THE HOPELESS
As Brands From the Burning                 How Weal Am I
As One                                     I Can’t Find The Words
Babylon the Great                          I Don’t Know
Bad News                                   I Give It All To You
BE                                         I Need Your Love
Beautiful Day                              I WAS DEAD
Believe It Or Not                          I WILL TRUST
Better Place                               I’d Like To Be With You Right Now
Big Picture                                If I
Blessed Is the Man                         If That's The Way You'll Use Me
Blind Guides                               If You’d Only Reach Out
Breathe                                    Immanuel
Bubble of Light                            In Thy Skirts
Burn!                                      Is It A Sin
Call On the Keys                           It’s Gonna Be Okay
Call Out to Me                             It’s Gotta Be

Come All You Drifters                      JUST GIVE ME A CHANCE
Come To Da Poppa                           Just One

Desire                                     Life Is Deeper
Desnudo                                    Life’s Like a River

Adam & Eve (June/July '08)

(Chorus:)

Call me (D) naive, but (G) I still be(A)lieve in (G) Adam & (D) Eve (As4)
Call me in(D)sane but I think when it rained just Noah's family remained
Call me a fool, but I think it's cool that Jesus Christ's gonna rule
Maybe I'm gone for (G) writing this (A) song, but I will sing on

Born & raised in a (D) country where people just (A) "know" that they descended
from (G) monkeys
Can be just a bit squeezy when they get into teasing folks who believe in Jesus
And it's not like they're blissful, thinking they're just fistfuls
of primordial soup that one day crawled out on land
Overly glorified mutants, specialized in disputing things they don't understand

(Ch.)

If you just keep repeating the same old lie, folks won't think that you're cheatin'
Cause they'd never assert you'd have such a nerve, instead of fearing a beatin'
And if this worked before, they figure there must be more people to pull some
wool all over their eyes
And what they call education in our civilized nations
doesn't amount to much more than just a big pack of lies

So, (Ch. 2x)




                                          3
A FURIOUS VOICE FOR THE TRUTH
CHORUS:
 Let me (Em) do only (C) Your will
Let me (G) go (D) where You choose
Let (Am)me be yours, yours (B/G)only:
a (C)furious (D)voice for the (Em) truth
here in(C)side me
I’ve got (G)nothing to (D) loose
 let your (Am)love guide & (B/G)make me
a (C)furious (D)voice for the Truth!
(G — C — Em — D — Em — C – G – D )

Come on , you strong men, take me out if you will
My body is yours but my soul you can’t kill
My life’s in the hands of the Ancient of Days
& to Him with all of My heart I will pray:

(Ch.:)

Stand here beside me; nothing I am
You, you alone will accomplish Your plan
God, I cling to You, what else have I got
You’re all I am & without You I’m not

(Ch.:)

Come all you great men, your gain is your loss
Greater is He that’s in me than your ‘boss‘
His Word is mighty, strong is His hand
I will proclaim His Truth throughout the land

(Ch.:)




                                                 4
Again

And You'll be all I needed to be finally completed
Flow through me, make me wholly Yours and then
just use me for whatever I am worth
Go on, undo me, and piece me back together again

And then take me to the water, fellow sons and fellow daughters
Take me way beyond any borders of what they call
law and order
Make me rise up to be slaughtered if that's what You will

And then raise me to Your harbor
let my ship sail ever farther
and embrace me like the father raced to kiss his
long missing prodigal son
and then let your greatest gift to me be not to let me
part from You again




                                         5
All I Want

I've just gotta tell You, You're really the Best
Compared to Your greatness, we're all just a mess
To honor You means to be awesomely blessed
All I want is You, forget about the rest

So, come & let Your lovelight shine on me
& make Your crazy love mine
Jesus, You're simply the Best

Lord, what would I do if I didn't have You?
I've said this before, but I've just got no clue
Many are called but the chosen are few
The few who know nothing else matters but You

So, come & let Your lovelight shine on me
& make Your crazy love mine
Jesus, all I want is You

All I want, all I want is You
All I want, all I want is You

So, come & let Your lovelight shine on me
& make Your crazy love mine
Jesus, all I want is You

All I want, all I want is You
All I want, all I want is You

  American Man (Norteamericano)


Ac(Em)a me llaman Don José y solía vi(D)vir del terrano
Pero hoy observo mi (Am) vida escapandome (Em) de la mano
Siempre hubo ciertas cosas que me parecian extraño
mas nada como al conco(Am)cer al nortea(Em)mericano

My name is Don Jose and I used to live off the land
But now I watching my life slowly slip through my hand
There always were things that I simply could not understand
But never the same as since I met the American Man

(Em) O, (D) nunca volvera a ser lo (C) mismo el grano
gracias (Am) a la ayuda amist(D)osa del nortea(Em)mericano
Oh, things will never be the same
Thanks to the friendly support of the American Man

El dijo, “Debes ser astuto, usa mi grano especial
Y el dinero se vendra cayendo como una torrente celestial”
Mas en vez de cosechas que alimentaran mi pueblo hoy tengo
Pienso para Ganado para (Am) que pueda comer mas carne el gringo

He said, “You gotta be smart, Joe, use my special grain
And you’ll see the money come falling from heaven just like the rain
But instead of food crops we need I’m now growing cattle feed
For the rich in the north to stuff their gloated bellies with meat

O, nunca volvera a ser lo mismo el grano
gracias a la ayuda amistosa del norteamericano
Oh, things will never be the same
Thanks to the friendly support of the American Man

O nunca me engañaron tanto
Como los senores honrados de la impresa Monsanto
Oh, life will never be the same
Thanks to the friendly support of the American Man

   Another Golden Time
I’m sittin’ in this dark room & I’m
Thinkin` of the latest lies that I’ve
Heard on the t-box,
boy, this time they knocked by socks off
& I`m wonderin’ will this ever stop?, oh,
will You take us back to the top, oh Lord
to the way it used to be in times ,
in times so long gone by & I`m
rememberin’ oh so clearly in my aging youthful mind
desiring so sincerely that one day we all may find
another golden time

A time that didn’t feel so hard,
a time to open up our hearts
A time when people wouldn’t live a lie
or live for money, do or die
A time foretold so clearly in the book of ancient rhymes
& if we read between the lines I know we`re gonna find
another golden time.




                                                    9
               Anymore
Times all I dreamed of was finding
Just a small trace of human touch
Voices around would remind me
I always expect to much
Where did those sweet times go
That you & I used to know
Where did all our minds go
That` s one thing God only knows

(Chorus:) But I can`t wait in silence anymore
      I run from my island to your door

Now those times left behind me
Are lessons learned no more
And I think I may find me
A much brighter way to go
No more sleepy dreamin`
Of what is & could not be
No more smoke and steamin`
Well, that`s, at least no more for me

               (Chorus)

You gave me faith when all was lost
You taught my eyes to see
Just bein` next to you`s the perfect thing for me

               (Chorus)




                                                    10
AQUIAH
(C) A(G)qui(Am)ah, (F)A(C)qui(G)ah,
come (C) help me set my (B/G) weary mind at (Am) ease,
help me find (G/Am7) oh sweet rest & (F) peace in Jesus,
(G) Aqui(C)ah

Your spirit brings that peace & quiet
far from all that noise & riot

Ease my mind & slow me down
calm my mood and heal my frown

Move slowly like a feather in the wind
let me bask in the calm you bring


Anytime

Any(E)time, any (F#m°) place, any(Asus2)how (Bsus2)
You can tune in to heaven right now
Anytime, any place, anyway
You can find peace and freedom and
All that you’re needing today

Anytime, any place, anyhow
You can tune in to heavenly music right now
Anytime, any place, anyway
You can find peace and freedom and
All that you’re needing today

(F#m°) Maybe you feel (G#m°) tired & weak
Or (Asus2) useless, growing (Bsus2) old
Maybe you’ve been cheated by a lie that’s often told
You don’t need to look that far for answers to it all
Heaven’s right next door, if you need help, give us a call

(Chorus)

Feeling you’re forsaken & forgotten all along?
Honey, there’s a whole new better world that’s coming on
Just a drop of His elixir, and you’ll be renewed
Tune into the station that is gonna see you through

(Chorus)




                                                             11
ARE WE STRANGERS AGAIN TODAY?

(C)You’ve called on Me for so (B/G)many years
& (Am)I have dried all (Am7/G)your bitter tears
You (F)know I’ve answered your (C)every call
I’m (Dm7)always right there to catch you (G) when you fall
But right now, though I’m right here you seem so far away
So, tell Me, tell Me, My sweet child, are we strangers again to(C)day ?

It hurts to see you in such stir
When I could give you al the peace in the world
So, why, darling, why must you fret
When I haven’t ever failed to care for you yet
So, please, Baby, come into My arms & don’t run away
You know I’d die for you time & again
So, are we strangers again today?
(Chorus:)
Are we (Am)strangers again to(Am7/G)day
When I’m the (F)best Friend you’ll ever have (C) (B/G)
Is there (Am)nothing you’d like to (Am7/G)say to Me
No, not (F)even a moment of love? (C) (B/G)
Don’t you think I might feel a little betrayed
When I’m there and you run off?
So, are we (Dm7)strangers again today, (C) sweet one
Or would you (Dm7)like Me to (G) show you My (C) stuff? (B/G)...

Remember those tears of joy you cried
When you thought of Me in your bed last night
& you thanked Me for all the things I did
& honey I’m really nowhere about to quit
But trouble arose with the break of dawn
& the rush of the new day
I’m here but you can’t seem to hear Me right now
Say, are we strangers again today (Chorus) (Bridge:)

So, why (Am)serve yourself an (Em)empty glass
Why (F)stare into a (C) mirror, (B/G)dark
You could be bursting with joy, peace, truth and love
So, are we strangers again, just strangers again
Or would you simply like to rise above?

As Brands From The Burning

You know He has changed my life, why don't you let Him change yours, too?
You know, He has saved my life (soul), why don't you let Him save you, too?

We were saved just as brands from the burning when there was no hope left in sight
Won't You keep my heart from yearning, Jesus, I need You tonight

(Ch.)

All through my life I'd been searching, seeking a reason to live
Till one day I found the answer in Jesus, He taught me to love & to give

(Ch.)

You're no fool to give a life you can't keep for a love that you just cannot lose
Come on, all you've got to do is receive, so, tell me, which side will you choose

(2nd Ch.:) He's inside my heart, why don't you open your heart, too?
          You know, He's the way, the truth & the life you're searching, too

(Ch.)




                                                   13
              As One
(Am) Here (B/G) we (C) are, (F) we've come this (C) far
(F) crossing that (C) bridge to the (Am) stars and
Here we stand daring to defy
(F) those who will (C) say that we (G) can't
and here we walk, the few who believe
that there's more to do than just talk
and here we live, ready to die
for the truth we must give

(Chorus:)

Ready to (C) fight an(G)other (F)day
It's (G) time to shake off that (C) old, back-(G)breaking (F) weight
Stop paying the price that He already paid
No use hanging on this way

Here He comes, here comes the Son
the Son and the Father are One
and here we run, run to His arms
we have only just begun
and here we sing, we sing our song
cause we belong, let it ring
and here we stand because we can
do no other than here to stand

(Ch.)

(G) Here (F) we (C) are, we've (G) come this (F) far
   Here      we     stand because we can do no other
   Here      we     sing, we sing our song cause we belong
   Here      He     comes, here comes the Son
We're all gonna be as one, as one, as one
We're all gonna be as one when He comes
We're all gonna be as one

Babylon the Great (July 31 2008)

Babylon the Great is gonna meet her fate
In one hour of one day she will be blown away
Because she has made drunk with the wine of her fornication
all the peoples of this earth, of every tongue and nation
And I saw the woman drunk with the blood
of the martyrs of Jesus
in her was found the blood of prophets
and all that were killed on the earth

Babylon the Great is going to have to pay
for her war-mongering, whoremongering, false & evil ways
As much as she has glorified herself & lived deliciously
So much torment & pain give her who sits there like a queen
For the merchants of the earth have grown rich through her delicacies
So come out of her, for God remembered her iniquities

Babylon the Great is waking up too late
therefore shall her pagues: death, famine and lament, come in one day
So pay her back double portion of the cup she gave to you
So rejoice over her, heaven & saints, for the Lord, the Judge, is true
For in one hour such great riches they shall be no more
& the voice of harpers & pipers shall be heard in thee no more
And no craftsman of whatever craft he be shall be found no more in thee
And the voice of the bride and the Bridegroom shall be heard no more in thee
For by your sorceries were all nations deceived

Babylon the Great is fallen - is fallen, in one hour is your judgment come
Babylon the Great is fallen - is fallen, come and see what she has become
Babylon the Great is fallen - is fallen, in one hour is your judgment come
Babylon the Great is fallen - is fallen, come & weep over what she's done

Bad News

Bad news all over the place (2x)
That’s the genetic code of the human race
Bad news ... see it written all over my face
You left this pretty planet a pure disgrace
Thanks for gettin` my kids stuck on tv
  Life’s a sitcom, let’s play it yippee!
Bad news ... that’s Earth`s transmission into outer space
Kill if you want to, just don’t leave a trace
Thanks for teaching ‘em to never take no
Now you teach ‘em how far they can’t go
Bad news ... since Cain & Abel the same dirty chase
If we’re monkeys don’t have to save face
Wave your pistol then have a cigar
The magic crystal says you’re gonna go far
Bad news ... (2x)        that’s the genetic code ... (2x)
Bad news ... (4x)

Hope it won't happen too fast
My horizon is vast
I wave goodbye to the past, it's a beautiful day

   Believe It Or Not                         April 2008

(Chorus:)

Be(C)lieve it or not, there is a (F) God, and He’s (C) hot
He’s greater (Dm) than everything but
Still small e(F)nough to fit in(G)side your heart

Believe it or not, there is a chance that He’s got
A place for you in His own Hut
Your very own reserved and personal spot

Believe it or not, His love is more than a lot
There’s nothing He would want more
Than welcome you inside His “Care-a-lot”

Believe it or not, there is a proof to this plot:
He sent His Son to the world
To die for you & me, believe it or not


Be(C)lieve it or not, with every (F) breath that you (C) take
God proves that (F) He loves you (Am) with a love that (F) nothing can (G) shake

Believe it or not, to find relief from your sins
All (that) you must do is open, & ask the Son to come in

Be(Am)lieve it or not, but it’s as (F) simple as that
God’s greatest (C) gift is so easy for any(G)body to get

Believe it or not, it won’t take more than a thought
To know that the best part of your life has not happened yet

(Ch.)

Believe it or not, but there’s a power within
Enabling even the weakest of losers to win

Believe it or not, but if you follow Him
Any need you may counter He will fill to the brim

Believe it or not, but what you’re looking for
Has come looking for you and standing right at your door

Believe it or not, but you will see in the end
If Jesus won’t turn out to be your totally coolest Friend

Better Place    Dec.14, 07

(D) I'm goin' somewhere, (G) I'm gettin' outta here (Em)
I'm headin' for (G) New Jeru(F#/G)sa(Em)lem
This world's not my home, it's not where I belong
My Home's a new and better Place
one where (A) I'll behold (A4) my Savior's (A) face

all of God's true children were never flad-a-wavin'
patriots of some earthly land
But pilgrims & strangers aware of the dangers
in calling some place on earth your home
all the way down from Egypt to Rome

(Ch.:)
Not satis(D)fied with (G) earthly (A) fakes
we'll look on high for God's Own State
Won't fall for lies but we will wait
for the (G) Real Thing, 'cause we're (A) heading
for a Better (D) Place (G-Em-A4-A)

(D) I'm goin' somewhere, (G) I'm gettin' outta here (Em)
I'm headin' for (G) New Jeru(F#/G)sa(Em)lem
This world's not my home, it's not where I belong
Darling, the best is yet to come
Safe & sound in dear Jesus' arms

For justice we hunger, we're never warmongers or
patriots of some earthly land
But pilgrims & strangers aware of the dangers
in making the devil's ways your own
all the way from Saigon to Cologne
or Alsaka down to San Antone
nor your glorious NWO

(Chorus 2x)

for a Better (D) Place (G-Em-A4-A) (2x)

Blessed Is the Man
(C) Blessed is the man who can weep (F) tears of joy
(Am7) Blessed he who can't and won't (F) be annoyed
by (C) all at(B/G)tempts of evil (F) to destroy
for (Am7) all he (Am7/G) sees is (F) Heaven's glory
out(Am7)shining any (Am7/G) fake reali(F)ty
for (Am7) love's the only (Am7/G) real thing he can (F) see (Gs4)

Blessed is the man who can resist temptation
of fears beckoning him that slaughter generations
He'll keep his eyes upon the goal
that torch that burns deep in his soul
constraining him to fight and never cease
till even the last captive's been set free

(Chorus:)

(F) Blessed is the man who won't seek (C) his own glory
For (F) that's not what he needs, he knows he's part of a (Em) greater story
than (Gs4) you and I all (F) lesser claims are (Gs4) lies

Blessed is the man who really loves a woman
the way that he is loved by the One Who created all men
to show His Nature for all eyes to see
the only way that one would strive to be
for love has been and love will always be
the only hope and one true meaning
the only end and the beginning
the one and only true reality

Blind Guides

(Chorus:) Blind, oh, blind guides of the blind
     deep is the ditch you’ll both wind up in
     Truth you won’t find in the closed
     rejecting mode your mind’s in

1.) You’ve all been fast asleep too long,
    repeating all the same old songs
    On your pews on Sunday morning,
    you despised to heed the warning
    You preferred to keep on yawning,
    refused to see the new day dawning
    Truth, the light & I repeat:
    Now you’ll have to face the heat

2.) Killed the prophets through the ages,
    persecute the wise & sages
    Burned a million sacred pages,
    locked your pupils up in cages
    There’s no war you wouldn’t wage
    to try to blot out in your rage
    The truth, the light & I repeat: Now you’ll ... ( Chorus)

3.) “Rich man, yeah, but pauper? No!”
    That’s the way you chose to go
    Soon you’ll feel the mortal blow
    of one who’ll reap what they have sown
    A better way you once were shown
    but refused and even so, Truth ...

4.) Will there be a second chance
    after you’ll have paid the dance?
    Or will you settle for romance
    with predition’s evil prince
    & Reap the harvest of your sins?
     Babylon, please take the hint! Truth ...




                                                22
         Breathe
Sweet, sweet, ever so much sweeter
is to me the taste of your love
When I breathe you in ever so much deeper
Deep, deep, Your heavenly love
I live, I see, my scope's so much wider
Wide, wide as the heavens above

(Ch.:)

I breathe You in
When I breathe You in

Climb, I climb ever so much higher
strive toward You with all of my heart and soul
When I dive, dive into your golden fire
that burns the chaff & yet heals like the sun
I come to life, I rise from the ashes
of what I was before I found the One

(Ch.)

I fight, I fight ever so much harder
while light, ever lighter becomes every task
You're my bright shining, ever so much brighter light
shower me, in Your love I will bask
I'm alright tonight as long as You hold me tight
oh right within You to be's all I ask

(Ch.)

Bubble Of Light

The cries of passion, the cries of change
The cries of freedom from their sordid ways
The cries of revolution, cries of devotion
The cries of do or die, open up your eyes
I`ll free you from those lies
Let the fire burn deep in you & I`ll lift you up in
One great bubble of light
Freedom from Lethargy, for he`s your enemy
The power of Pan, tossed in the can
Bacchus just backs off, my brides they won`t stop
Their cries of do or die to conquer every lie
If you will give your all to Me I promise you the victory
I`ll give you such great liberty in one big bubble of light
Defeat the darkness, soak in the light
Remove the madness, fight for what`s right
Ring cries of passion & cries of change
Stand back and watch me rearrange
Keep ablaze the eternal flame
& te world will watch you being raised in one big bubble...

(fade:) naked and nothing – completely free
        I stand bewildered, they`re healing me
        Keys of the Kingdom clase to the heart
        I`m activated for a new start
        I`m activated, I`m activated
        In one great bubble of light

Burn!

I have called you out as a beacon for the World
I have chosen you to be the vessels of My Word
carriers of My message for which My people yearn
I have lit the fuse the fuse, it’s time for you to burn

I created you for this purpose alone,
to shine the light of truth, for this hour you were born
Stand up, wake up, & teach them all they’ve got to learn
Now it’s up to you to spread the fire & burn

Light up the world & let them see your fire burn
Shine & light your candle at both ends, my children, burn

       (Am)         (G)            (F)            (C)
(Br.:) The darkest hour that this world has ever known
      (Am)        (F)               (C)          (G)
       Is just before you, but you know you‘re not alone
        Get up, light up the darkness, soon I will return
        (Am)       (F)                (G) (A-G-D-A...)
        So, get on fire, I need you now to burn

Intro: D-Bm-G-D---D-Bm-G-A---D-Bm-G-D---D-Bm-A-D

(D) You feel (Bm) weak: you (G) call out to (D) Me!
Your outlook is (Bm) bleak, you (G) call out to (A) Me!
If (D) answers you (Bm) seek, just (G) call out to (D) Me!
I'll set you (Bm) free if you (A) call out to (D) Me!

Don't know what to do? Call out to Me!
You ain't got no clue, until you call out to Me!
It's simple but true, all you've got to do is call out to Me!
My advice to you: Oh, child you've got to call out to Me!

(Br.:)
You ask, (G) "It's as easy as (D) that?"
And I say, (G) It's that (D) easy
(Bm) There's no condition too (A) bad
No circum(G)stances I couldn't change
No challenge that could (Asus4) tease Me

(First verse)

(Ch.:)

If you feel tired & weak, call out to Me
I'll give you all the strength & power you need
I'll show you anything you want to see
All is yours if you will call out to Me

(rep.)

Cheer Up!

Johnny Simmons never knew what he had until it blew up
And all came crashing ‘round his ears one sunny day of June
At first he didn’t know what to do, then he said, “I’ve been a fool.
Life could be much worse than this!” & he said down & sang this tune

Johnny Simmons born anew didn’t like some others do,
go through life with their eyes closed & never getting any clue
Learned his lesson, even two, passed it on for me & you
Life could be much worse than this, can you sing it, too?

(Chorus:)

(Cheer up! )Life could be much worse than this (2x)

So, cheer up, what have you got to lose? All you do in life is choose
Will you sing a happy song, or will you sing the blues?
It’s up to you, pick up the news, so what if life ain’t perfect, Dude?
Come on, sing & dance with us & just kick off your shoes

(Chorus)




                                                 28
Claire

You never thought you would end up here like this
Stuck with a kid & your life: what a mess
you were enticed by the shimmering black light
thought, 'Trust this demon & you'll be alright'
Ra, the old liar, he sucked you right into the mire
Now, how are you gonna get out of it?

You thought you deserve something better than this
So, you took what was yours & you didn't take shit
You bit the hand of those who would die for you
Jumped from the frying pan into the fire
But, remember you used to be my girl
One heart, one soul, your world was my world
but you had to get out of it, yeah, you just.....

(Chorus:) And you still just want to get out of this
          Don't want to get stuck with us lunatics
          You're sure you deserve something better than this
          somewhere
          Claire, I'm sure you'll find it somewhere
          All your ambitions & dreams & your castle of air
          Claire, and when you get there
          Write me a postcard that just says, "Made it!-Claire"

How many lies can you tell without having to blush?
Bluff like each hand you were dealt was a Royal Flash
You, you were aiming higher
You wouldn't get stuck with the rest of us fools in the mire
No, you ha to go out of it, you just had to....

(Chorus)

"Made it at last, free as a bird, finally, beauty has rescued the world"
"Made it at last, free as a bird, finally, beauty has rescued the world"

CLUELESS

(E) What do I know? – Nothing.
(C#m7) What can I show? – Nothing.
The (B) more I know, the more I don’t know
The more I find out, the more I find to explore

(Chorus:)
I’m (E) clueless, I’m absolutely (C#m7) lost without Your love
My Lord, I’m (As2) clueless, there’s nothing I’ve got that didn’t come from above
I’m (F#m7) clueless, ultimately You’re all I know, all I’ve got
I’m (Bsus2) just a big hole that needs You to be filled
I’m just a poor soul that needs You to pay my bills

So, what do I care if I’ve got nothing?
As long as You’re there You’re my Everything
You’re the One Who made something from the nothing I was
When I lost everything You gave me more than I’d lost
And I (F#m7) wouldn’t know why You chose to show me You cared
I (As2) wouldn’t know why, but sudden(Bs2)ly You were there

(Chorus)

(1st Verse)

(Chorus)
…I’m (As2) just a poor soul that needs (Bs2) You more even (E) still (A-B-C#/As2)

Cold Wind

There's a (Em)black (G)cloud (D)(Asus2)
on the hor(Em)izon (Em)
and there's a (Em)red (G)sky (D) (Asus2)
and a bad tide (Em)risin' (G) (D)(Asus2)

Watch out, all you dreamers, you better beware
It's been way too long that you just didn't care
and stood silently by as Big Brother plays on
his mean, wicked game "hey, y'all, look here: I'm strong"
and there's a (C)cold , (Bm) cold wind (Dsus2)blowin',
(Asus2)blowin' from the (Em) north (Em)

There's a clock tickin' sayin' time's up soon, pals
There's a big shock in store for all you boys and gals
For there's a new power growin' strong behind the scenes
and if you don't wake up you're are gonna see what that means
Welcome the great super hero who will tell you the score
Watch as the greatest confusion ever comes bursting forth
Yeah, there's a cold , cold wind blowin',
blowin' from the north

Offer your foreheads and hold out your right hands
Here is the number, people, here comes the man
But, honey, if you like freedom, best prepare while you can
for the time's coming soon only the strongest will stand
I tell you things ain't gonna stay the same way they were before
Yeah, well, you may have seen things but here's the god of war
and there's a cold , cold wind blowin',
blowin' from the north

        Come All You Drifters
Come all you drifters, I dare you to dance
in the light of the Morning Star
I have been lifted above all the mire
& dark shadows of the past
I have been cleansed from the guilt of my sins
& I know you can been just the same
Just open your heart & reach out for the light
& the love you will //: find in His Name ://
Come all you losers, I `ll help you to win this game
by giving you a new start
& though you may stumble, I` ll be here to catch you
for I `ll always be in your heart
I will protect you, love, guide & direct you
past every storm in your path
If you `ll only stop, look & listen to Me, honey,
I `ll save you //: from the wrath :// ( 1st verse)
You who despise me, disect, analyze me
may never quite understand
How faith, hope & love are born deep in the heart
& can never just come from the head
//: born deep in the heart ://

           Come To Da Poppa
(Rap:)

//: Come to da Poppa man, come to da Poppa :// (2x)
Come to da Poppa, you`ll see things aren`t really that bad
Come to da Poppa, he`ll make your broken heart glad
Come back into those arms that make the mighty universe spin
Come to da Poppa, so good to be together again (Chorus)
Come on back to the city of Banana Moonshine
Come on back into the House of Joy where everybody`s so fine
Come into the light of love that`s gonna kindle your heart
Come to da Poppa, you know He`s loved you right from the start
(Chorus) (Bridge:) Come on back to shine
                        He`ll make your whole world rhyme
Just say I`ll be Thine, for you are, you are
(Chorus)

           Concrete Hearts
As I walk the pavement of these city streets
my eyes turn from those buildings to the people I meet.
Conversation here won't lead very far,
God, it almost seems to me
as if they've all got concrete hearts.

Concrete hearted people never show what they feel,
eyes as cold as diamonds, minds made of stainless steel,
never tell on whose side they are,
no, no, they won't show their loneliness
deep in their concrete hearts.

Concrete hearts are as hard as the streets on which they walk,
never mean a single thing when they talk,
just surround themselves with concrete walls.
Concrete hearts would rather stop beating
than be caught shedding tears,
always pretend they never once knew a fear,
no, not even in a million years,
sad lonely concrete hearts.

Talking to someone that I thought I once knew
showing some emotion 's one thing she just won't do,
leave me sittin' here in the bar, oh, but girl, tell me,
who's ever been missing a concrete heart?

I'm not gonna let you make a fool of myself,
just because you look as pretty as a vase on some shelf,
play with me but don't go too far,
no I'll never let myself fall for you and your concrete heart.

Concrete hearts are as hard as the streets on which they walk,
never mean a single thing when they talk,
just surround themselves with concrete walls.
Concrete hearts would rather stop beating
than be caught shedding tears,
always pretend they never once knew a fear,
no, not even in a million years,
sad lonely concrete hearts,
cold lonely concrete hearts,
sad lonely concrete hearts.

Cure
Round & round & round, keep spinning
Without ever falling down, this old ball they`re now
Bringing to its knees
It’s such a catastrophe, guess it`s the way it has to be
We burn the forest ‘cause we can`t see the trees
Christ, this seems much too hard to bear
I look for you but I can`t find you there (Chorus:)

And I would fly into the breeze
But you prefer me on my knees
This life is such a strange disease
So, why won’t You cure me, please

That’s alright I was just kidding
Cause I’ve had good times, I admit it
That I cannot pretend were just a dream
But when this thing, reality comes creepin`,
Catchin’ up with me that silver lining’s further than it
seemed

Love has left a lonely, vacant chair
I look for You but still don’t find You there

Depending On You (April 5 & 6, 2008)
(Intro: G-F#/Dsus2-Em-C 2x)

Here I (G) stand by Your (F#/Dsus2) grace
Bringing (Em) nothing but a (Em/D) heart full of (C) praise (D)

I have tried for too long
On my own, but I just wasn’t that (C) strong

And as (C) I discard from my life all I (B/G) find less than true
I trade (Am7) (in) those substitutes for the re(Em)solve that I’ll (Dsus4) be
Depending on (G) You

(intro)

Let it rain down on me
Let the water of Your Word wash me clean
I’m afraid what I seemed
& I thought to be was not really me

And as You discard from my life all that’s much less than true
Teach me one skill that will serve me when all other fall through:
Depending on You

(half intro)

(Chorus:)

De(C)pending on You I find (B/G) new strength within
for things that (Am7) on my own I just couldn’t (G) do (D)
Depending on You I am protected and know
That there is no battle I could ever (Dsus4) lose

Here I (G) stand by Your (F#/Dsus2) grace
Bringing (Em) nothing but a (Em/D) heart full of (C) praise (D)
I have tried for too long
On my own, but I just wasn’t that (C) strong

And as You discard from my life all that’s much less than true
Teach me one skill that will serve me when all other fall through:
Depending on You

(Chorus)




                                                     36
DESIRE
(Chorus:)
Hold me close, don’t let me get singed by the fire
Hold me tight, don’t let me lead myself astray
Keep me close, don’t let me drown in my desire
Keep me near, don’t let my heart wander away

Jesus, You know me better than I know myself
I put on a show, pretend to be somebody else
Haven’t we all believed those lies we tell ourselves
Help me to be the one You want & no one else

(Ch.)

Beautiful daydreams, wishing the world were another place
Imagining perfect scenes & all flaws gone without a trace
But life cannot all be fun & bliss without hard times to face
The greater the darkness & sin, the more the light shines with radical grace

(Ch.)

Desnudo                                                                           Feb.06

Puedes decirme tu quien yo soy?

De donde vengo y a donde voy?

Puedes decirme tu que hago aqui?

Si hay una razon de existir para mi?


No aguanto mas sólo sobrevivir

Preciso nuevos mundos pa descubrir

Debo saber a donde debo ir

Sin que me digan como me tengo que vestir


(Ch.:)
         Desnudo llegué a éste mundo y desnudo me iré

         Lo unico que cuenta es el segundo y vivir cada uno antes de que se fué


Llamando al cielo, habla tierra aquí

Que veo aca es un susto para mi

Y lo que escucho son mentiras y cuentos sin fin

Ché, Dios, no puede ser que sigan siempre asi


Hay un payazo en la téle jugando rey

Que dice sus palabras desde hoy son ley

Mas yo no quiero mas que paz, mañana y hoy

Y sin verdad, dispuesto a vivir no estoy




                                                                38
        Donut                 July ‘06

Gee, this treadmill’s not for me
Free’s what I was meant to be

Bono says, “What can we do
To free the world from poverty?”
I would ask, “what can we do
To free the rich from their misery?”

Cast your jewels into the river,
Watch them sparkle, watch them glitter
In colors you have never seen

Aaah, stop making such a fuss!
Less is sometimes more,
More sometimes less

Jesus didn’t have a church, a house,
no place to lay his head
So why do we all think
We need a golden king size feather bed?

Go on, build your barns
& make them bigger
for your 15-digit figures
you must leave here when you’re gone

Gone.

Thanks, Bill Gates, for what you’ve done!
You could even make a tiny contribution
For this song!

I don’t have to envy you
As I’m sure you don’t envy me
After all, we’re all in the same boat,
Big Brother, you & me

Except I won’t have to stoop as low
To get back to reality
The reality that happiness
Is merely the ability
To enjoy things that money just won’t buy
A chirping bird, a sunny sky,
To see the donut, not the hole




                                            39
Do You
1) When you sheer collapse under the weight that’s on your back
   & you’re feelin’ trapped & like you’re runnin’ outta luck
   close your eyes,
   call on Me & you`ll be alright

2) When you’re feelin` strong, that’s not when I got through to you
   Please, don’t get me wrong, I want you to enjoy life like I do
   It’s true, I’ve been with you all along
   I’m your song

3) Please, bear with me, darling, just like I will bear with you
   Are we just getting started or are we almost through?
   Wrong or right?
   - Please, not tonight!
   there`s gotta be something so much better to do

(Chorus:) Please, tell me you remember (how I kept you warm at night)
      (Do you?) Tell me, can you remember (that I love you, wrong or right)
      (Do you?) Do you ever remember, do you?
      (Tell me, do you remember, do you?)

4) Do you want me to stop? Should I just pack my things & go
   But you don`t wanna talk, so there`s some things I`ll never know
   Should I just keep on gessin` what`s wrong with you?
   I just think there should be something better to do (2 fr.)

            (Chorus 2x)




                                                     40
ENEMIES OF TRUTH
When (Bm7) you’ve declared war on the (En7) enemies of truth
You’ll find the ride rough, turbulent and (Bm7) anything but smooth
You’ll face one huge, tough Goliath, stout & (Em7) armed to his last tooth
But life ain’t (Cmaj7) life until you’ve declared (G) war (As2)
on the enemies of (Bm7) truth

When you’ve declared war on the enemies of love
You’ll walk a rough trail that you won’t make with no help from above
They’ll try to tear you down, destroy you, make you scream “I’ve had enough”
But life ain’t life until you’ve declared war on the enemies of love

(Chorus:)
(Em) Bring truth and love, instead of (Cmaj7) hatred and their (Bm7) lies
Replace bondage with freedom, open up their blinded eyes
Shatter illusions & expose the foe’s disguise
And you’ll see (Cmaj7) God’s new world (Em7) finally a(Bm7)rise

When you’ve declared war on the enemies of peace
You’ll find the first hill to tackle’s to make your own hatred cease
For only then will God’s full awesome power be released
Life ain’t life until you’ve declared war on the enemies of peace

When you’ve declared war on the enemies of life
You’ll know that life’s more than what they take with bullets or with knives
You’ll face the dawn when your last hour on earth will have arrived
And you’ll go on as the victor over all of the enemies of life

(Chorus)

(First verse)

…on the enemies of truth (3x)

The Enneagram Rap (by Dave Mendoza)

I'm ONE - having fun's not what life's about for me
I need perfection, every section of my life is squeaky clean
Like St.Paul & Martin Luther at the core I'm a reformer
I'm a teacher, preacher, innovative pioneer & explorer

I'm a TWO, and for me, nothing matters quite like you
I need someone in my life to dedicate my passion to
Helping others - sisters, brothers, is what I'll most gladly do
Because all you need is love & to be loved & needed, too

I'm a THREE, I'm a THREE, and a winner I will be
nothing less than success is gonna cut the cake for me
I don't have much time for failures nor for losers or for wailers
I won't stop, close the shop, before I have reached the top

(Chorus:) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 distinguished kinds
         of human personalities, made in God's design
        1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 - if you can figure out yours
         I'll tell you mine

I'm a FOUR, and what's more, I am different, that's the score
to be anything but ordinary's what I'm striving for
to stick out from all the others, I will dress in different colors
because beauty is what's gonna save the world, & not your dollars

I'm a FIVE and I jive with those who let me live my life
In the castle that's my home I prefer to be alone
Unless you will let me mind my business and will mind your own
To collecting things and hoarding knowledge I am rather prone

I'm a SIX, just a SIX - your old average people mix
I will play along the game as long as by the rules you stick
You don't really need to praise me or tell me that I'm amazing
'cause I fear that's just a game you play to rig things up your way

(Chorus)

I'm a SEVEN, and to me, life is pretty close to heaven
I enjoy myself, & I would like to keep it up, so never
let me in on all the ugly things out there, cause that's not clever
Just don't worry and be happy & don't spoil the party, ever!

I'm an EIGHT, I'm the boss & give you hell if you're too late
I will even pick a fight with you, if that is what it takes
If you're weak I will protect you, if you're strong I will respect you
But provokoing me is something you might easily regret

I'm a NINE, and I'm fine, even if I lag behind
I don't need to be the greatest, I prefer to just be kind
Ambition, competition & endeavor's not my mission
I'd prefer to bring you peace & like to help you catch that vision

(Chorus 2x)

            Europe Is Dying

And the man who stood there at the end of the line, he was cryin`
He said, Give me a penny, son, can`t you see Europe is dyin`
& I wished I hadn`t understood a single word he said
& I wished it hadn`t been as if he`d looked inside my head
So, little by little I ford my way up through the river
& the power that`s mine is the power of one who`s forgiven
& I wished I had some better news than what I just now read
& I wished I hadn`t understood a single word the newsman said
Yeah, I wished that I was wrong or even lyin`
But seems like Europe is dying
So I fly `cross the ocean & I find another man cryin`
He says `gimme a cent, son, America, America is dyin`
(Chorus 1+) & I wish we`d use a little more of what`s inside our heads,
but, son, America`s dyin`
Cause it`s not always the stronger one who`s always in the right
 & your money`s not a guarantee that you`ll win every fight
God I wished that I was wrong or ... but your money is dyin`

EVERYBODY COME
Everybody come & clap your hands
everybody come & praise Him
Everybody all across the land
everybody shout & praise Him

(Chorus:)
Hallelujah, hallelujah, praise Your name, oh Jesus!
Everybody come & clap your hands
everybody come & praise His name!

Everybody, swing your hips & dance
everybody sing along now
Everybody now this is your chance
even if you don't know quite how

(Chorus)

Everybody come & dance with Jah,
everybody dance with Jesus
Everybody see that God is Love
the Devil, he can only tease us

(Ch.)

Everybody come & clap your hands
everybody come & praise Him
Everybody all across the land
everybody come & praise His name

Farewell Mr. President
This is a song for you, though it's a song you'll never hear
The man who's wrecked & ruled "the greatest nation in the world" for 8 long years
Oblivious to the facts, oblivious to how it feels to have lost a son in Iraq
for some greedy, old men's petrol deals

I wonder who'll wipe off that grin from your mischievous monkey face
You're wading knee-deep in your sins, the blood of thousands on your hands
Of all the hypocrites I've seen you were the one that takes the cake
Farewell, Mr. President!


You sure fulfilled your daddy's dreams: that New World Order's rolling in
Cause, after all, what have you been than a mere puppet to their schemes?
And best of all, you've done it all in the Name of the One you hate
Cause you were taught not to repeat the one mistake your daddy made

The hypocrites fell for you the way that brand of people do
But me, I see right through your wicked smirk, oh, yes, I do
Farewell, Mr. President!


So now you're leaving with a bang, the way that big-shot people do
to leave another man to hang in the place you have left him to
I suppose history will show what you did, who you were for real
Perhaps our grandchildren will know what all you schemers now conceal

But in a long, black list of fools, I think you'll be and always will
the most pathetic one of all to me
Farewell, Mr. President!

War is your game, war has been your creed
Though it's sure as hell not you who fight, no you let other people bleed
The wind you have sown, the storm you will reap
So, come on get down off your thrown, make room for yet another creep

"We won't get fooled again," is that what we really believed?
But then we'll believe anything, anything - you screwed us over in our sleep
Farewell, Mr. President!
Sure had us fooled again
Farewell, Mr. President!
Don't come around again

I'm calling (C) you out there, whoever you (Am) are

more
cheer (Am) up my friend, I've (G) got the keys that (C) you've been looking (F) for

(Ch.)

(Br.:)

I'm (Am) calling you though (G) I don't know just (Fmaj7) who or where you are
I (Am) know that you're some(G)where out there how(Fmaj7)ever near or far
For (Am) just like you I've (G) always felt this (Fmaj7) world's not up to par
with (Am) what I knew I needed, to (Gsus4) fill an empty heart

(Ch. 2x)

                         Fiery Eyes

Woman, let me forget myself in your fiery eyes
You came into my life, such a sweet surprise
Your soft & slender body, tough spirit but broken hearted
You gave me more than un poco de amor
Woman, let me refresh myself at your tender lips
My happiness lies in every move of your fingertips
I long for your sweet caress, the taste of your gentle breast
Baby, to me you` re a princess

(Bridge:) Angel on fire, don’t look so disheartened
       as if our ways had already parted
       Woman in love, there`s nowhere I`d rather be
       Than right here with you on your bed reminding me
       Of the love, my Creator has for me (1st line)

Make me regret the times when I lived in lies
Sweetest of all my treasures,
C’mon, my queen of pleasure
You give me more than un poco de amor
(Repeat 1st line 4x)

Fire, Water, Air And Earth

Five billion souls under one sun learning to live in peace on one,
one speck of dust we call our planet.
Five billion different worlds in one learning to get along, each one
so very different from the other.
So many different shades in one, so many different traits yet one,
only one human race, one Father.

Fire, water, air and earth and what's inbetween,
fire, water, air and earth and anything that is seen,
learning to live with each other.

From a distance the stars all look the same
but if we get close the aspects change:
they all vary in purpose, size and colour.
Like Venus, Mercury and Mars, our personal characters all are
as manyfold as the constellations.

Fire, water, air and earth and what's inbetween,
fire, water, air and earth and anything that is seen,
learning to live with each other.

Just go walking down your street, so many different types
you meet,
wouldn't you be bored if we were all the same?
One is proud, the other shy, some a little dumb, the other sly
like a snake that's waiting for it's chance to bite.
Some walk high and some walk low, one goes fast the other
slow,
we all can learn a little something as we go.
Some love music, some play ball, some can't stand that stuff
at all,
they'd rather work all day just making sure the money rolls.
Some as quiet as a lamb some are violent, some are tame,
we all need each other, no two folks are just the same.
Red, brown, yellow, black or white, the one thing not to do is
fight,
but we must learn to live eternally in harmony.
That's what we're all here for, we have to open the door,
and take a step to love each other.

Fire, water, air and earth and what's inbetween,
fire, water, air and earth and anything that is seen,
learning to live with each other.

First Day
(D) Good morning, God's child it’s (A) time to rise, yeah,
(Em) this is the first day of the (G) rest of your (A) life
What your (D) hand finds to do, do it (A) with all your might
Cause (Em) this is the first day - (G) of the (A) rest of your (D) life (A-Em-G-A-)

Good morning, God's child, rise & shine
there's no time to lose, no time to murmur or whine
the path of victory is yours, it’s yours to choose
So, good morning, God's child; it's time to rise & shine

Pick your feet up & leave your burdens behind
Yeah, this is the journey to the rest of your life
Though a steep path ahead & many hurdles you’ll find
Child, this is the first day…

Do what you can but don’t push too hard
No, don’t worry & let go & let God
finish all of the good in your life that He started
just take the first step on the rest of your march

           FOCUS

Every day comes with a sheer array of
Shiny things designed to make me go astray
Countless temptations and distractions coming my way
Must have this & “Lord, I still need that”
And then I’m craving this, though I’m already fat
& there’s this one thing missing for my happiness
Until You call me to look up
And You make all this madness stop

(Chorus:)
I focus on You & the more that I do
The more I realize that nothin else
In this whole world could ever really satsisfy
I focus on You & the more that I do
The more it becomes clear that
all my wants, selfish addictions and desires disappear
when I focus on You

The web, the movies & computer games
Along with buzzy drinks can sometimes blur our aim
Make us forget that we are fighting a war
Endless pleasure trips and lethargy can come across like
Good & dear old friends to me until I can’t remember
What I’m fighting for
Lord, take control & lift me up
And please make all this madness stop

(Chorus)
(2nd chorus:)
When I focus on you I see nothing is true
Except You and Your Cause
That matters more than any other thing that I could ever do
I focus on You and the more that I do
Everything else fades away like a long & sad day
With nothing to say until You came my way
I focus on You (2x)
I fix my mind, I keep my eyes pinned straight on You
I’m tuning in, I won’t let go, You’re all I think, You’re all I know
Make all this madness fade away
There’s nothing else that’s left to say
Cause without You it all won’t matter anyway
I focus on You
Keep me focused on You
I focus on You

Follow God

(Chorus:)
For God’s sake, follow God
‘cause we’re just gonna have to trust Him, it has come to that
For God’s sake, you’ve gotta see God
No use in tryin’ to figure it all out in your own head
That’s right, you heard what I said:
You gotta see God, for God’s sake, follow God!

For God’s sake, follow God
‘cause in the end we’re gonna find out we’re not all that smart
It’s true, you gotta see God
His signs are everywhere to see for open minds and hearts
You wanna get it right from the start?
You gotta see God, for God’s sake, follow God!

(1st verse:)
What’s the first thing you should do when you get stuck?
Pray! – You gotta see God!
Who do you turn to when it seems like you just ran out of luck?
For God’s sake, follow God!
Who’s the only One Who really knows what’s up?
Hey, you gotta see God!

(Chorus)

For our mission, blind ambition’s not quite what it takes
No way! You gotta see God!
Calculations and equations till your head starts to ache?
Uh-uh! Follow God!
Mystifying speculation, mind-rotations till late?
I’d say, you gotta see God!

(Chorus)
(rep. last line)




                                                                  54
Follow Me ( Till The End Of The World )

Follow me where I go, wherever He may lead us now
'cause, love, don't you know that there's a new freedom
that's just waiting for you, waiting to take you away, hey ...
Yes, if you want to be free, just take my hand & follow me
where I go, through fire & rain, love, through water & snow
& don't you look back! But will you stay by my side
through winter & summer, love, through flood & thru' tide
& till the end of the world, babe we've got nothin' to hide
No, no, no, no no we've got nothin' to hide ,no, no, no, no
Oh, if you're longing for joy, for someone to love you & to care when you cry,
 why don't you break out & leave those old chains behind & don't you look back
Oh, if you search for the truth, make up your mind now, babe
which side will you choose & come follow me
Girl, we've got nothin' to lose, no, no, no, no,
No, we've got nothin' to lose ...

Forevermore

I hear them say the words we read don't really mean quite what they say
I hear them pray as if they don't expect an answer anyway
I hear them say that God could not have made the world in 7 days
I hear them justify themselves by saying "loving doesn't pay."

I see them endlessly continuing their selfish, rotten game
I see them point their crooked finger and yet never take the blame
Why do they have to keep on killing, fighting, hurting, in His name?
I cannot see how they'll escape from everlasting grief, contempt and shame

Why do they have to keep on taking His most holy name in vain?
Why won't they ever make attempts to put an end to all this pain?
Why are they lying to themselves and to each other for mere gain?
Why can't we be content with what we have, but murmur and complain?

How can we say that we know better if our works don't show the same?
Now is the day to break the fetters, strengthen the things that will remain
"Thou shalt not kill" was hewn in letters that we'd better read again
How can we hope He'll come & get us before tribulation reigns?

I cannot see, I cannot hear, I cannot speak, I'm powerless
I only feel and mourn and pray and await that ancient, promised bliss
When He that was to come will come again and restore righteousness
And every nation on this earth will once again call itself blessed

Then will that mountain fill the earth, nothing will hurt kill or destroy
New life will be born from the ashes, sorrow will turn into joy
His name and truth will then be known by each man, woman, girl and boy
No longer will the tempter and his legions pester and annoy

I don't know when or how but I know one thing is for sure
That day will come when all the nations will be cured
The project "man" will be renewed, revamped and totally restored
The rightful Heir and true King, Jesus Christ will reign forevermore
Jesus Christ will reign forevermore
Jesus Christ will reign forevermore
Jesus Christ will reign forevermore

Forward, March! (Oct.8,9, 2007)
Chorus:)
Forward, march! – Army of God, advance!
Forward, march! – This is your second chance
Forward, march! – Family, this is your dance
Forward, march! – It may be their last chance

You’ve been My chosen ones for nearly 40 years
You’re the work of My hands, My blood, My sweat & My tears
Out of America, to the ends of the earth
I’ve called you out & now again I send you forth

(Chorus)

On February 18, 2008 I’ll send My signal shot
The world must no longer wait
I’m calling you to march, move forward & advance
Take the offensive – this is your chance

(Chorus)

You can do what’s been unheard of, do what’s never been seen
You will lead My Endtime Army as you follow your queen
You will reap the mighty harvest, you will bring in My sheep
You will usher in My Kingdom, wake’em up from their sleep

(Chorus 3-4 times)

Free
Locked up in an iron cell, my life was dark and vain,
a hollow shell until you came in and you gave new life to me.
Childhood memories were sad and gloomie as can be,
there was no love for an unimportant little boy like me.

When you came along it was like someone finally turned
the light on inside my dark room and made me see.
When the morning dawns I know that you will come
and take me home and set me free.

In the early morn' I'll spread my wings
and I will soar into the sky and fly so free.

I was just a prisoner till the day you came along,
trapped inside my cage just like a bird without a song,
hardly anyone could understand what it's to be finally free, free.

Locked up in an iron cell, my life was dark and vain,
a hollow shell until you came in and you gave new life to me,
oh my past was hell, compared to what's become,
you broke the spell and set me free -- free -- free!




                                                58
Free As the Wind
 I go wherever I want to go
where I'm coming from you don't know
nor can you tell where it is I'm venturing
I'm free – free as the wind
free, free, free, free, free as the wind

I blow wherever I want to blow
you hear my song but you still don't know
where it is my road ends or begins
I'm free – free as the wind
free, free, free, free, free as the wind

I do whatever He bids me do
you notice me but you don't have a clue
where it is my Lord is beckoning
I'm free – free as the wind
free, free, free, free, free as the wind

(Bridge:)

So is anyone born of spirit and wind
so is every son of the King of kings

(First verse, chorus twice)

Freedom (We Are the Ones)
I can show you the way to freedom, if it’s freedom you want
If you want to be led, I will lead on and teach you to confront
All your fears, all your lusts & your demons, so they’ll no longer haunt
If you’re blind, I can teach you to see them
This is your freedom, if it’s freedom you want

Freedom from numerous addictions to things you think you need
Freedom from slavery to fiction, fables that make you bleed
Freedom from fears and inhibitions, nightmares, worries and superstitions
Freedom from their lies and delusions, disinformation and confusion
Freedom from their control and intrusion:
This is your freedom, if it’s freedom you want

I can show you the way to freedom, if it’s freedom you want
If you take Jesus and receive Him, you’ll need no more to run
If you stick to His Words and do them, you’ll be His follower in truth and
You will certainly know the truth then and that truth is gonna make you free, man
Things you are blind to right now you will see then
This is your freedom…

Freedom from fears and inhibitions, nightmares, worries and superstitions
Freedom from their lies and delusions, disinformation and confusion
Freedom from their control and intrusion:
This is your freedom, if it’s freedom you want

We are the ones whom the Lord has raised and prepared to lead you through the
darkness that’s to come
We are the diamonds of dust who shine and sparkle in the sunlight of the One
We are the shepherds who were sent to find you, gather you into the Master’s fold
We are the children of the David of the End God sent and long ago foretold

From Your Lips
From Your lips – Words of gold
From Your lips – Words of purest gold
Straight from Your heart
Your songs of love to me You impart
Straight from Your humble heart

From Your lips – Words that formed the worlds
From Your lips – never a wrong was heard
Straight from Your heart You give all I need from the start
Straight from Your mighty heart

Who am I to have found favor in Your eyes?
What am I that for a wretch like me you died?
Who am I to call You mine?

From Your lips – drops that make all I’ve got, all I am
From Your lips – we were formed before this world began
Straight from Your heart come each song, dance & true work of art
Straight from Your heart of hearts

Gently & Quietly I'll Bow Your Mind

Come, take my hand & I'll sure treat you kind
Lead you someplace no one will ever find
lay beside me & close your eyes
leave all Earthly thoughts far behind
Let me touch you deep down inside
& gently & quietly I'll blow your mind

I'm not the kind who need pompous ado
silently I'll convey my point to you
not a word, barely making a sound
I will achieve to turn your head around
you won't resist or cast my love aside
when gently & quietly I'll blow your mind
So, let me come in the hour of the night
& gently & quietly I'll blow your mind

GET READY

(Bsus/e) Come, pack your bags, we've got to get moving (Asus/b) onward
         Don't fall behind. there's only one way & that's         forward
(Esus4) Leave all be(E)hind, (Esus4) everything (E) you call your (D/g#) home (D)
now
(Asus/f#) There's more to (Asus2) find, much more that life's got in (Es4) store (E)
now

Tear up your roots, this is not your destination!
Put on those boots! You're meant to be heralds to nations
Come, follow me, let's catch your destiny out there
You're meant to be free, this treadmill will get your life nowhere

(Ch.:)
We've got to (Bsus) get ready, (Esus) people, it's time to get (Bsus) goin'
We've got to        get ready,       people, it's time to go

(Br.:)
(F#m) Over the hills,       (Asus2) across the seas, there's a (E) destiny for
(Bsus) you
       Way past these walls,      you're gonna see that your      dreams can still
come        true

How does it feel living inside such a wrong world?
Hero or heel, to them you will only speak wrong words
It's not meant to be, although this cage may be golden
Come & be free, follow the key that you're holding

Give Me Truth
(Ch..:)
Oh, give me truth, whatever you give me
Don’t need to paint it nice for me

Cause what’s the use, if I can't believe in it
I’ve heard enough lies in my day

I'm not the kind who choose to blindly grope through a dark world,
Where artificial lighting sets deluded minds awhirl

Don't tell me lies, no alibis, no sweet, enticing words
I'd rather have it straight, the facts - even if it hurts

(Ch.)

I must confess, I don’t like darkness all as much as light
But careful with those coloured spotlights, when they get too bright

To really see what’s going on, we need the light of truth
And that sometimes reveals some things you won’t hear in the news

(Ch.)

I do appreciate you efforts to be friendly & polite
The most politically correct, smart diplomat in sight

But what I need is honesty to make it through my day
It’s not the smoothness of your words that counts with me, no way

(Ch.)

So,…

God Needs You

(capo 3rd)
Don't you (C) sometimes feel the need to (G) prove that you can (Am) make (F) it
in this (C) lost & lonely (G) world, all on your (Dm7) own? (F)
And then sometimes you might even try to fake it
and pretend that all you need is brains & brawn
But when the (Am) storms of life tear (G) down your house & (Dm7) shake it (F)
(Am) wouldn't it be nice to (G) know you're not a(F)lone?

You don't (Am) have to be a (G) self-made fool
you don't (Dm7) need to show off all (F) you can do
there's (Am) really no point that you've (G) got to prove,
brother (F) I've got news for (G) you:

(C) God (G) needs (Am) you (F)
to (C) do what you a(G)lone were meant to (Dm7) do (F)
to play that part in His big plan
that He knows no one else but you can,
to love Him and to know you need Him, too
So, when it all comes down to it,
remember you're worth, every bit
because (Am) God (G) needs (C) you

Do you sometimes feel like everybody's watching?
And just waiting for the moment you will fall?
But then you're not the only one nobody's touching
and there's many who feel no one cares at all
If you realize there's many others searching
Why not turn around & tune in to their call?

It's time to take note you're not alone out there
there are hungry souls like you everywhere
they're just waiting for you to break out & share
& to show them someone cares

(Ch.)

There's a (D) mighty harvest (A) out there no one's (Bm) reaping (G)
there's a (D) big job waiting (A) no one wants to (Em) do (G)
And I sometimes think that I can hear Him weeping
'cause the ones who care for others are so few
So the (Bm) next time that old (A) loneliness comes (Em) creeping (G)
Just be(Bm)lieve with all your (A) heart that this is (G) true:

(Ch.)

God of Love                   (Nov.07)

(D) You say (C9) can’t believe in a (G/a) God of love
when there’s (Em7/f#) so much that (A7sus4) just won’t make
(D) sense to you
How can He be a God of love
when there’s so much that’s bad & good things so few?
How naív to believe all will turn out good
Is this just wishful thinking or true?
And you tell me that life has been hell for you
Well, life has been hell for me, too

But there’s one difference between our points of view
And I think that’s what each of us choose
You say, “What do I gain from believing this?”
While I’d say, “What have you got to lose?”
Just a load full of pride & a heart of blues
You ask me, I’d say, that’s quite a deal:
Just forget how much life has been hell for you
Sister, I know quite well how that feels

You see, faith is something you can’t touch or see
Yet it can take you beyond any star
It’s a torch light that leads some place you’ll be free
& at home no matter where you are
It’s a simple as turning a light switch on
Illuminating a dark room
& though life may have been quite some hell for you
I’m offering Heaven to you

Do you believe it? Will you receive it?
Can you hear Jesus?
He’s standing right at your door & just waiting for
You to whisper the words, “Come on in!”

Do you believe Him? Will you receive Him?
He’s standing right at your door & just waiting for you
Come on, let Him in!
Do you believe it? Will you receive Him?
Just say, “Dear Jesus, come into my heart, take my sin!
I want to believe it!
I want to receive you!
Help me & save me,
Come in!”

God's Creation

(Chorus:)
(G)When will the beauty of (C)God's creation
find (D) admiration, ap(G)preciation of
the inhabitants (C)of the nations
Oh, (D) when will they honor (G) God?

When will the church of God have the nerve
to give Him the credit that He deserves
When will they stop swallowing the devil's lies
& his sweet sugar-coated pill?

(C) He didn't need ten (D) billion years (C) to make this pretty (D) world appear
(C) Just like Jesus didn't (D) need a year to (Em) heal the leprous (C) man
but some people are (D) so afraid (C) to admit that he (D) could have made
(C)The whole universe (D) in 6 days, that's too much (Em) for them to compre(C)
(D) hend

(Chorus)

No amount of random mutations can come up with the equation
that would be needed for generations of species to come about
 There's too much about evolution that doesn't jibe with the constitution of
living things & their sheer perfection & it makes me wanna shout
(Chorus)

Good Day to Die

(Ch.:)
It’s a good day to (As2) die,
Good day to (F) teach’em how to (G) live (Ds2)
Bid one last goodbye to pride & give all I’ve got to give
Kill off those lies stopping me from helping you believe
Yeah, it’s a (F) good day for me to (G) die for you, my friend (Ds2)
(F) die that (G) you might (As2) live (C/As2-D/C>2-F-G…)

Thank you for killing my pride by revealing a side of me I never knew
I’m not the man I thought I was

Thank you for teaching me well that we all deserve hell unless by His grace
We choose to receive the Son of God

Thanks for the way you wipe out my suspicions & doubts
By showing me where they lead & where they’re coming from

Thank you for being around to show you all I’ve found
Even if it turns out that you want none of it

(Ch.)


Thank you for lending an ear & confronting your fears
In accepting me here telling you there’s more than this

And if you open your heart & say your little part
You’ll be taking a step you won’t ever regret

Don’t think I’m leading you on with the words of this song
I believe & I mean every little part of it

Someone must die that another may live & I’m here to tell you
That that’s precisely what Jesus did

(Ch.)

Good day to die that you might live (4x)

& share a little light with all we meet (Chorus 2x)

Home
Summoned by the tolling of the bell
we run to save as many souls from hell
and wake up from the old usurper's spell
as come to listen

Beckoned by the clearest (sweetest) Voice of all
I can't resist the urge to heed Your call
to help up anyone of those who fall
and carry them back home

For there are many people in this world
who haven't seen yet and who haven't heard
the light of truth that shines forth from His Word
oh, come and listen

Come and listen that your souls may live
there's no one else Who would have more to give
than He Who died to teach us to forgive
and carry us back Home

For there are dark and troubled times ahead
of which the ancients and the sages said
that there have been no darker times before
nor should they come back anymore
Unless they're shortened no flesh should be saved
but through this darkness the way will be paved
for Jesus to return and take us Home

Even so, come & come quickly, Lord
Help us to gather all those who are Yours
help them to hear Your voice and get on board
before You'll take us Home

I Can’t Find The Words
I believe in real love, a love for you & me
I `ve got something within my heart that everyone can see
I believe in true love, a love that you can feel
There’s a fire burnin’ in my soul that nobody can steal
The woman next to me she drives me crazy
& all I really see she’s so amazing
you mean that much to me I just can’t make it
the love you give to me I just can’t take it, no (Chorus:)
I can’t find the words, I just can’t find the words
I can’t find a way to express the love inside me
I can’t find the words, I just can’t find no words
I can’t find the words to say how much I love you
I love you in the morning I love you in the day
I love you when the night time comes & I kiss you right away
You know that I believe in true love & maybe you will see
that there is something more in life to really set you free
Oh, I believe in magic & in eternity
& that everything is possible if you will just believe
Oh & I believe in angels & in the heavenlies
& that you don `t need to worry, babe, cause there `s enough for you & me
mmh, & I believe in freedom & yes, I know there is a God
there’s a fountain runnin’ from my soul, we must get right back to the start

      I don’t know, tomorrow’s in the hands of God alone
      The faster you’ll that there’s no need to worry,
      the happier you’ll be, so, just let go.

Who among you can add one single day to your lives
By what you know
It`s easy to say Hey, folks, I know the way
But the wiser man will just say I don’t know

              (Chorus)

Don’t be like the man who crossed the frozen river
On hands & knees, so slow
When, all of a sudden, behind him came rattling
A team of horses, pulling a heavy load

              (Chorus)

(D)Jesus, take my hand, You (D/Em)know,
I just can’t make it by my(A/D)self,
I need your helping (D) hand (D/G-D/A)

More than a little child his mother – I need Your love
more than a sister or a brother – I need You, I need Your love

I need Your love (4x)

I WAS DEAD

(Em/f#)I still remember it as clearly as if it happened (D)just today:
(Em/f#)I was driven in my car when suddenly this truck rolled up a(D)cross my way,
(Am)It was to late to brake, and all I could do was cry (G/A)out and pray
& the (Am)next thing I re(C)member (D)was the (Em/f#)crash

(Em/f#...)I somehow knew that I was dead, though I remember I was feelin' great
Then I heard people scream and someone by the car wreck said, 'It is too late'
when I looked over there to see what he meant I thought that (Em)I would faint,
for the dead man lying on the ground was me

and (Am) that's when I (G) realized (C) I was feelin' (Dm) just so light
and (F)hoverin' right a(Dm7) bove a nearby (Gs4) tree (G)
(Am) I felt like (G) I could fly and (C) yelled, 'Hey, I (Dm) didn't die'
though (F) no one heard me, (Dm) I just felt so (Gs4) free (G)

(Chorus:) I was (Am/B) dead and am a(G/A)live again
             I was (Am/B) dead and am a(G/A)live again
             and when (F) I came back my (G) whole life was (Am/B) changed

(Em/f#)...As I soared up into the evening sky suddenly I saw
Some former loved ones who had passes away and left this World long ago
They greeted me and told me not to be afraid or worry anymore
as they led me through a passage of light
beyond the tunnel I saw golden light, as bright as I had never seen
A shiny City full of flowers of new colours, rolling hills of green
As we drew nearer I was welcomed by a bright, angelic, shining Being
and I felt such warmth and love I'd never known

and (Am)...then, in a moment's time He showed me all my life
and all I'd ever done, good, wrong or right
I saw how I had failed and prayed, 'God if there's a way, please let me go back and start again!'

(Chorus)

(Em/f#)...Then, suddenly, to my amazement, I woke up back in the hospital
Doctors around me had revived my body, which was feeling miserable
But all the pain I felt could not begin to equal with the joy I felt
That my life had begun to make sense
Now for the first time in my whole life I could realize there was a plan
and behind everything in life there is a reason and God's mighty hand
and that our purpose here in life is just to learn to love our fellowman
and yes, I now know there's a life after death

and (Am)... I talked to all my friends about this experience
Though they just laughed it off, time and again
I know that it was real and so is the joy I feel
I now have a mission to fulfill

For.....
(Chorus)

I WILL TRUST
(Chorus:)
I will (Em) trust & not be (G) a(Ds2)fraid, (As2) I (G) will ... (3x)

I’ve got a (Em) first class ticket (G) to (Ds2)Heaven (As2) (G)
Second (Em) best will be no longer (G) my (Ds2)style (As2) (G)
I’m gonna (Em) sit right here & (G) stop (Ds2) worryin’ (As2) (G)
& for a (Em) change I will enjoy (G) the (Ds2) ride

(Chorus)

I‘m an old man & had many troubles
Most of which never happened anyway
I must seal off myself from those bubbles
(the) worries about tomorrow & yesterday

(Chorus)

(rap:) I’m in a good trance, gotta catch this drift




                                      84
                 I’d Like To Be With You Right Now

I’d like to be with you right now
Under the stars somewhere, somehow
& there we`d take a peaceful vow
I’d like to be with you right now

Oh God, to be with you right now
The thought makes me want to dance & shout
Your love has turned me inside out
If I could be with you right now
If I could be with you right now
Take all your apples from tree by tree
Love is what will work for me
Send me a pauper, send me a clown
But please let me be with you right now
             (1st verse)




                                             85
                If I
If I could say just one thing to you
I think I’d say , ‘Yeah, girl, f ... you, too
That `s just no way, treat me like you do me
You do me, you do me, to
Treat me the way you do
Just pretend that’s the end
& all is said & nothing `s done
drifting one step further from the sun, well, have fun.

If I could send one message to you
You’d read : ‘I believe what we had was true’
 I know some day you’ll see me like I see you
I see you, I know you’ll see me the way I see you:
Just a perfectly alright ‘nuther fucked up
Lonely hunter for the truth

(Bridge:)
Why must we break up in anger, like this?
Why do we still fight after 6.000 years
Guess all trust in mankind will be hereby dismissed
Cause love sometimes needs stronger ties than gently singin’
`Seal It With A Kiss`

(1st verse)




                                                     86
If That's The Way You'll Use Me

(C)I'm gonna (G)be Your (F)prick,

I wanna be a loo, yes, even if they think I'm 'pooh'
no matter what they'll say or do, if that's the way You'll use me

(Chorus:)

I wanna be Your cock, the one who wakes and makes 'em rock
so, let 'em go and say I suck, if that's the way You'll use me
I wanna be Your fool, Your ole heehaw and faithful mule
As long as I can be Your tool and that's the way You'll use me

I wanna be Your crack, the one they'll say's completely whack
as long as they'll go on, not back and that's the way You'll use me
I wanna be your slave, the one they'll say no shrink can save
If I'll be nuts as I'll be brave, and that's the way You'll use me

(Chorus)

(Bridge:)
(Fmaj7) Nothing in this World, no high or (E) low
can ever separate me (F) from (Am7) Your (Dm7) Love (G)
(Fmaj7) Any obstacle ahead are (E) only windmill giants
that You'll (Dm7) help (Am7) me (F) rise a(G)bove, hey!

I wanna be Your pawn, as long as I'll go ever on
I'd rather make 'em scream than yawn if that's the way You'll use me
I'm gonna be Your prick, I'm gonna be Your poking stick
Yes, even if it's me I'll kick, if that's the way You'll use me

If You’d Only Reach Out                                                        Dec.30, 1984

If you’d only reach out & touch Me & would call upon My name
You’d find oh, sweet rest from your care & pain, as you’d never found the same

If you’d only call out & receive Me, I would whisper in your ears
All my wondrous, precious Words of life that would cast out all your fears
If you’d only reach out & touch Me

(Ch.:)
And you would learn how to sing like a sparrow in spring & find a new life full of freedom
Yes, you would learn how to fly like an angel, so high
& you’d never come back again
If you’d only reach out & touch Me

If you’d just lift your heart up to heaven & would listen to My voice
You’d find treasures that forever last, more than silver and all gold
If you’d just open your heart & receive Me as I stand here at your door
I would give you joy & such heavenly bliss as you’d never known before
If you’d only reach out...

(Ch.)

         Immanuel
The Lord Himself will give you signs:
The virgin will be with child
and will give birth to a Son
and they will call Him

Immanuel

For to us a child is born,
     to us a son is given,
the government rests on His shoulders.
     And he will be called

Immanuel

Wonderful Counselor
Mighty God, Everlasting Father,
Prince of Peace.

In Thy Skirts   (Jeremiah     2:34)

Thousands of unborn new babies each day
are legally murdered the civilized way
In the name of progress, the name of advance
they are stripped of each semblance of even a chance

You may cry your heart out while they bleed to death
Or think you're so great cause you stole their first breath

In thy skirts
is found the blood
of the souls
of the poor innocents

10.000 starvation victims a day
while we carelessly throw our leftovers away
We're all so clever, developed & smart
We consider killing each other an art

You may shrug your shoulder while they starve to death
and plan which country you're going to ruin next

Is It A Sin
Is it sin to wanna share love with all men?
Is it sin just because you don`t understand?
Is it sin if I ask you again, is it a sin?

Is it sin not to keep for myself what I`ve got?
Is it sin to reach out, do I ask for a lot?
Is it sin if I ask you why not?, is it a sin?

Is it a sin if I act on what I do believe
do you believe?
Is it a sin to put feet to what we have received,
to freely give?
What makes you think that you`ve got nothing to win
so you hold in. Is it a sin, is it a sin?
So, here I stand alone against the wall of you heart
& scream please collapse! Please collapse!
Running all around & bang my head on the ground
I scream open up! Finally open up

Open up your heart !
Is it sin to wanna share love with all men ...
( first 2 verses)
... Is it sin if I asked you why not ? (3x)
Is it a sin? (3x)

It’s gonna be alright. Just stay real close to Me & I’m gonna see you

If you hold on tight, you’ll see the tunnel’s end will bring a bright &
shining light

Hey, don’t let that gray cloud steal your smile away
      (B)    (As2)                                          (B)
No way, no way. Just listen to the Words I’ve got to say


(Ch.)


Hey, just thinking till it hurts won’t save the day

Say, don’t you think that I could find a better way

Today? Today! Let the sunshine in & let it chase your blues away

IT’S GOTTA BE
I was (G) talkin' to the Lord about some things I'd said
'cause I (Bm7) couldn't really tell had they been good or bad
Our in(Am7)tentions may so often be quite good and pure
then there's (C) other times that I just wouldn't be so sure

So, the Lord said, 'Honey, don't fret nor dismay,
there's a simple little rule by which you've got to play
And if you'll stick to it you won't go astray,
What(C)ever you do, what(D)ever you say,

It's gotta be (G) love.
It's gotta be (Em) humble
it's gotta be (C) true, kind,
give peace to the troubled and sight (Am7) to the blind
it's gotta set the (Bm) captives free
and (C) most of all, (D) it's gotta be (G) Me

So I went about my life & what life's all about
and I stuck to the rule, followed that golden route
Till a week or so later, must have sheer forgot
and a nasty little thing to say slipped out

The reaction wasn't quite what I had hoped it was
And well, isn't that the way that it so often goes
So I'm goin' back to Jesus, what He has to say
Said "Remember what I told you just the other day?"

(Ch.)

So if you're some fellow who's quick with his lip
Let me share this with you: don't let nothin' slip
that you wouldn't want someone to have said to you
and remember that Jesus gave this golden rule:

The First and the Last, Alpha & Omega,

Glory to Him forever & ever, Jesus!

He will rule all the nations at the right hand of the throne of the Ancient of Days, Jesus!

(B/G) He’s the One you can‘t do without, (Bb/G) so, let Him (A7s4) chase away your (D) doubts
(D) He’s standing, knocking at your (C/D)door, tell me, what are you waiting (B/G) for?

JUDAS
Friend, tell Me, why, why did you betray Me?
Come, seal my fate with a kiss
Did your pride not let you just obey Me?
You took the lies if the witch
Brother, you don’t know what you’ve done, do you?
Not to Me, but to your own soul

You sought to save yourself, secure your own tomorrow
Now that it’s done, what have you gained?
For I, I will rise again, while you’ll drown in your sorrow
left with your everlasting shame

Go & do that which you must do quickly
Name My price, what am I worth
Go and take your 30 pieces of silver
and cast them into the dirt
Come to Me now, and ask Me the question:
“What are these wounds in Your hands?”
And in My tears and My pain I’ll answer:
“These are the wounds of a friend.”

What if a man should gain the World and lose his soul?
Oh, only what’s given can be saved
Now you have paid the price & thrown it all away
Oh, Judas, the choices that you made

Judgment Day (Oct.2, 2006)
What is it that makes you try to avoid me?
What makes you run and turn the other way?
What is it that you just get so annoyed by
Before there's even one word I can say?

Why are you so afraid to hear me talking?
And way too scared to look into my eyes?
Exactly what's it you can't keep from stalking
What makes you hide & put on your disguise?

Oh well, that's (D) just too bad that (C) you can't stand the (G) fire
Too bad that you're allergic to the heat
So sad that it's the truth you don't desire
but you prefer to play your game of cheats

Your pitiful addiction to the darkness
has made you come to fight against the light
In this life's play you've fogotten what your part is
no longer able to tell wrong from right

One simple choice from you could well reverse this
and put you back onto a better way:
the childlike act of saying 'yes' to Jesus
and you'll be justified on Judgement Day

What good is it when one man owns the whole world
and finds himself afraid to face the light
No pinball wizard failed to see "game over"
No day failed to be followed by the night




                                                                 96
Junkie for Your Truth

Pillars of light lead me Home to the place where
everything's right that has always been wrong here
No matter where I am, You're there to lead me on

Hisses and squeals from the slaves of the serpent
threaten me all along my way, still I'm bent
on reaching my goal no matter what they say or do

(Ch.:)
I need another shot of You
cause I'm a junkie for (Your) the truth
Shelter (Keep) me from their poison flood
and soak (bathe) Me in Your precious blood

I need another shot of You
The only Stuff that will ever do
Give me more of that Spirit Juice
Cause I'm a junkie, a junkie for Your truth


Make me a stonewall they'll chew out their teeth on
Not nudge an inch from the truth I stand upon
Make me a rock in their midst, Lord, a rock like You

Pitiful pleas for me finally to give in
cannot divert me from Your Wine I drink in
No way I live without dying each day for You

Ch.

Bridge:

Cause with(F)out it (G) I just can't go (As2) on
I (F) need Your (G) truth to keep me (F) strong (G)

If you’ll (D) just give (A7s4) Me (A7) a (D) chance (G) (A)

(D...) So be not discouraged, be not disheartened
Look not back & do not be remorseful
Over the mistakes or sins of the past, for the past is the past

( Chorus )

Bridge:
I have (Bm) covered these mistakes & sins
& (F#m) that which was scarlet shall be (Em7) made
(A7s4) white (A7) as (D) snow
As (Bm) far as the east is (F#m) from the west,
So (G) far have I re(Ds2/F#)moved your transgressions (Em7) from you (A7s4)
(A7)

In times of (D...) darkness I will be your light
In times of sadness I will be your joy
And more important then any of this, I am Love to you
Yes, more important then any of this, I am Love to you

       Just One                       April 24, 1997

Just one beat of a heart away from falling apart
Just one width of a hair away from just giving up
But if you hold on for one more breath
You’ll find shoulders to lean on
And leaning find your strength

Just one beat of a heart away from finding the truth
Coming so close to knowing, and yet so far
The choice has always been yours
Determine now what you’ll be
What you will do, and, baby, who you are

Just one beat of a heart between the finish and start
Just one blink of an eye will make the difference
Just one word from your lips, one touch or even a glimpse
Can determine the course of years you’ve yet to live

Just one look or a smile, an inch, a yard or a mile,
Second, minute, hour, or day
You can’t tell anyway
Who do you think’s in control?
C’mon, only God knows it all
Sometimes you’re tempted to think,
“Does anything matter at all?”

There’s just one thing you can do
and that’s let Him work through you
He’ll give your life a new start
With nothing you can’t do

Just one beat of a heart…

Just One Day
(Intro:)
You came my way, bumped into my life on just an
ordinary cold November day
& you came to stay `cause I think you mighty like the
kind of silly games you & me would like to play

1) & I’d think you & me we’ve got
   Yeah, I think that you and me, we’ve got
   Some mighty damn good reason to stay

Don’t blow away, your beauty’s like the summer wind
That once taught me to bow my head & praNo calling for a taxi cab, there’s not a moment I won’t grab,
   a 1.000 years with you are just one day
   Just one day

I’ll do as you say cause I found out by experience
That for me there is just no other way

    (1 + 2) ... just one day (3x)   (intro)

KING OF LOVE
(Em) The streets are empty and you
(Asus2) hear (Am) the wind blow
(D) & whisper of forgotten (G/A) things you don't know
(Em/f#)if there is something for you
(Cmaj7) to be(Ds2/F#)lieve (Em/D) in
(B7) if there is someone you can (C) still hold (D) on to

So many years of your whole life seem wasted
although of every cup of fame you've tasted
but all those streams of pleasure have run dry now
& leave you empty with a thirsty sigh, oh

But there's a voice that whispers deep within you
a voice of hope that cries, 'Let the light shine through!
And let it chase all your dark clouds away &
change your life into a (Em) sunny (E) day

(Ch.:)
Let Him (Am) in, let Him (D) in
This is the (G) King of Love Who's (C) calling (B/G)
(Am) Calling you to come (D) back
into the (G) Country of the (Em) Free (E)
Let Him (Am) in, let Him (D) in
This is the (G) King of (F#/Dsus2) Love Who's (Em) calling
(Am) Calling you to (D) come back to be (Gs4) free (G)

So many people live in their own cages
chains forged by their own hands in selfish rages
Prisoners of their own desires & passions
yet never really knowing satisfaction

But there's a Man Who longs so hard to free them
Who lived for love & died for you and me and
rose again to set the captives free
that we might live for all eternity

(Ch.)

Largo
(Music: G.F.Haendel, original Italian lyrics: unknown, English and Spanish translation: Dave Mendoza)

Oh my sweet Lord
I feel you inside
Oh, Lord, the peace You give
Courage envelops me
When You are near

God, come live in me
I want to lay me down
Here in the soft green grass
My saving Love

No, don’t leave me, Lord
Please, don’t forsake me, Lord
Light and life of my heart
Let me hope to bask in the beating of Your heart
Please, don’t forsake me, Lord

 O mi Señor
Te siento en mi
Señor, cual paz me das
me envueleve el animo
cuando me hablas

Dios, ven, vive en mi
quiero hundirme aqui
dentro de Tu calor
salvante Amor

No me dejes, no
No me dejes, Senor
Luz de mi corazon
Solo en tu latido puedo
esperar
en Ti quiero estar

Life Is Deeper

You can give me your phony smile & tell me you're alright
You can even tell me you're satisfied
with the way you drink away your nights
You can tell me your stories of how happy you once were
but a look into your eyes shows me
that there's a deep desire in you
for something more

(Chorus:)
Life is deeper, much deeper than some people confess
That is why they all live in such a superficial mess
There is more to, much more to life than people admit
It is more than playing poker, drinking beer or
watching football on your tv set

You can give me your party life & pretend you're living high
& I congratulate you for the different one you lay almost every other night You can call it
relaxation or satisfaction of some kind
But if that's what you call happiness, my friend, I really must confess
you're far from right

(chorus)

(Bridge:) But you just wonder how I can believe in the hereafter
& all my pleas for you to believe are met with cynical laughter
But if eternity's an ocean then this life's just a tea spoon's portion of it all, friend, can't you
see?

You can show off with your latest model of a BMW
take me to your favorite golf club every Sunday afternoon
You can treat me nice with color slides of your trips to Honolulu
but fulfill that yearning, aching void inside your cold & empty heart,
they'll never do

(chorus)

 Life's Like a River

      Life's like a river that is flowing endlessly
ever on towards the boundless ocean of eternity
Down the mountains through the valleys, passing nature scenes
Or through filthy, smoky cities, till it meets its destiny

Mile by mile you run your course, keep fowin' where you're bound
until the journeys over & the day your goal is found

A song's like a picture, some abstract & sometimes clear
so, let me paint my message now for everyone to hear
The truth is an arrow that can cut you to the heart
deep down to the bone & marrow, it'll tear your soul apart

Separates the fight from wrong & shows you where you stand
until the day you face yourself & take the master's hand

Speech is a mirror by the which we all can see
if the one who talks is chained by pride or whether he is free
the mind is a traveler, a lonesome pilgrim on his own
that can meet a lot of fellows that'll tell him where to roam

Mile by mile you run your course, keep goin' where you're bound
until the journeys over & the day your goal is found

Life's Not A Freeway
I know what's on your mind, babe
You think I'm left way behind, babe
But one fine day you'll find out that
despite the way it may seem, hey, life's not a freeway

No need for pushin' & shovin'
It's time we started some lovin'
You need to get through your mind that
despite the way...

It's a rough & rugged mountain track
that once you have started you don't dare look back

I know what's clouding your mind, man,
pressure from every side, Stan
You've gotta learn to say 'Stop!'
'cause,...

I know you're tryin' to be first, boy
but turning out just a jerk, Roy
I think you better slow down, for...




                                               105
Listen & Live
There is a life
void of worry & strife
you don't have to act
as though you had arrived

If you pretend
you'll lose in the end
why don't you just
reach out for the Master's hand

Darling,

(Chorus:)

Listen & live
Listen & live,
Stop, look, listen & live

Listen & live
Listen & live,
Stop, look, listen & live

Empty your mind
strip your soul & take time
to leave all your cares
& your worries behind

In the quiet & calm
find that soft, healing balm
just lay your soul into
the Lord's mighty palm as you

(chorus, repeat)




                                  106
LISTEN TO THE WHISPERS
(capo 3rd fret)
(Chorus:)
Listen to the (C) whispers (G) (Am) in your (F) heart
that will tell you (C) where to (Dm7) go, (Am7) listen to the (F) voice of (G) love
Listen to the (C) whispers (G) deep (Am) in your (F) heart
               [Listen to the (C) whispers! ] (F) (C) (G)

Listen to the whispers, to the Words of Love
that tell you what to do 'cause they come from above
You can hear the whispers if you're still enough
(Listen to the whispers!)

(Am7) Child, there are so (Em7) many of us just waiting,
(Fmaj7) waiting for a chance to (G) speak
(Am7) Child, you know, we're (Em7) here to help you
you've just (Fmaj7) got to have the faith & re(Gs4)ceive (G)

(Chorus)

Give, give out the love, children
because this is an important time
Live, don't be afraid now, just be there
& give it out, oh, let it shine

(Bridge:)
There are so (Fmaj7) many souls that might (Em7) never know
His love & (Fmaj7) joy & Heaven's peace of (Em7) mind
That's why (Fmaj7) you must go to share & (Em7) tell & show
them the (Fmaj7) blissful life that's yet to (Gs4) find

(Chorus)

.....to give out, give out, give out the love
.....we'll give you guidance from above

LITTLE ANGEL OF THE STREET
(G-C9-G-Ds4-E/G-C9-G-Ds4-G)
Little (C9) angel of the (G) street (Ds4)
(Em/G) you have (C9) made my life com(G)plete (Ds4)
You came with your sweet, sweet mile
saying "just a wee, wee while
& every(Am)thing will (C) be al(Ds4)right"

Little angel of the street
You put me back upon my feet
You brought hope where there was none
I couln't cope, you taught me, "hang on,
the darkest hour's just before dawn"

(Intro)

(Em/G) You talked about how Christ was born
to bear His cross & all their scorn to bring life to one like me

Little angel of the street
You were more than kind & sweet
Will you tell your Lord for me
since that's where you went to be
that I'm ready to believe?

(Em/G) Tell Him, "thanks" for sending you
to this drunk & homless fool
tell Him from me, "I owe you"
and if He wants, He can send me, too

Angel, see you (G) soon
Oh, Angel I see you
I'll be home someday soon
thanks to you, girl, thanks to you

Lone Song
Why isn't it easier to heal the pain
When you've been stripped of your pride & left standing in the rain?
I wish I could help you make it through this fight
I know it's rough on your own tryin' to make another night
Where is all this lonely living gonna end?
You feel like wanting to cry or even die, you hurt so bad

Come on, turn around, I've had enough of your frown
you should get out of yourself
There's so much to do, there's someone waiting for you somerwhere else
If you believe you'll find strength to pull right out of this hole in your mind
Learn to receive from above & you'll be able to give and you'll find your love

Bad when you're a loser from the start to end
but if you'll give it a try you'll be back on your feet again
sad when all the wounds inside don't seem to mend
but there'll be waiting a prize if you hold on until the end
Wrong to give up when you feel you're beat again
Without a battle to fight there'll be no shiny crown to win

Get up on your feet or get on out on the street & face the morning again
You've got to break out, away from under that cloud you've been haunted by so long
Find someone else who needs love & you won't ever be lonely again
Open the shell that's surrounding your heart & just reach out your hand: There's love!




                                                   109
Long Time Searching

(G) I’m so weak, Lord, & (C) You’re so (D) strong (G-C-D)
(Em) You’re right, Lord, & (C) I’m so (D) wrong (Em-C-D)
(Am) I know to You (C) I be(D)long (Am-C-D)
I’ve spent a (Am) long, long, long time (C) searching to (D) find my way (G) home
(C-D)

You’re my light when I can’t see
I was tied up, You set me free
I’m Yours for eternity
I’ve been a long, long, long time walkin’ just to get to You

Lord, I love You to the bones
I know You won’t leave me alone
It’s to you I sing my song
I’ve spent a long, long, long time searchin’ to find my way home

Thank You for Your big, big love
And the power to rise above
Thank You, Lord, for AME* & for giving us the power of the keys

Lord, You’re really my best Friend
Thank You for holding my hand
Help me up when I can’t stand
You bring Your bright light in my life, You help me understand

Jesus, You’re so way, way cool!
You’re so wise and I’m your fool
Help me, Lord, stick to Your rules
I’ve been a long, long, long time waitin’ to become Your tool

(1st verse)

* AME: “Ask Me everything!”

Losers Turn Winners
The fake of the century's revealed now,
though some are still blind and can't see,
it just isn't all gold that glitters,
not everything's good that is cheap.
And some things can be quite expensive
and bring you deep down to your knees,
for those things you insisted on having,
you may find out your life was the fees.

For some people life is a teacher
and others won't ever perceive,
too late, much too late comes the awakening,
they find out they have been deceived.
The mystery's past comprehension
to sqare minded natural men,
the harvest they'll reap is damnation,
let's break loose as long as we can.

So here's to all of you captives
who really believe to be free
but are bound by the chains of your own bigotries,
traditions, rivalry and greed.
I just can't cope with all their hatred,
the madness in all that I see,
oh God, I beseech you to bring it to halt,
this system of idolatry.

For you who may think we're the losers,
for lack of material gain,
may find out when we'll reach the end of the road,
that the losers turn winners again,
the losers turn winners again.

The line's drawn between those who're simple
and blindly just treading along,
and those who know just what they're doing,
they'll have you all sold before long.
Their plan has been kept through the ages
and soon will have come to its end,
the plot is complete and has rendered
the whole world in the palm of their hands.

I damn all your weavings of evil,
your rituals, cursing and spells,
compared to the light you're just fooling around
your road will just land you in hell.
I pray for all those you have blinded
that one day they might again see,
I pray for the ones you have bound with your lies
that the truth will again set them free.

And though you may think I'm a loser
for lack of what you call success -
I'd rather be poor as a peasant
than found guilty of all your excess.

Yeah, you who may think we're the losers,
for lack of material gain,
may find out when we're 'round the corner
that the losers turned winners again,
the losers turn winners again.

LOST SHEEP SONG

Intro: (G/D-Em7-C/D-D7) 2x
Well, (G/D) here we are a(C9)gain tonight, some (D) of the 9(G/D)9
To(Em)gether singing (C) songs again & (G) everything’s so (D) fine
We (G) think we truly (C9)have arrived, so (D)safely in the (G) fold
But (Em) brothers, where’s the (Em/D)Master gone
out (Am7)in the bitter (D) cold?

I’ve (G/D) seen it time and (C9) time again, we (D) argue & dis(G)pute
A(Em)bout our different (C) views of doctrines,
in(G)terpreting the (D) Truth
But (G) somewhere out there (C9) in the dark,
while (D) we all fuss & (G) fight
There’s (Em) someone who be(Em/D)longs to us,
who’s (Am7) not yet found the (D) light
So, (Em) let us stop our (Em/D) arguing
& (Em/C#) get together (C) now
to (G) join the Master’s (D) search out there,
I (C) hear Him calling (D) out:

Chorus:
“I’m callin’ (G) you, yes (C9) you out there
(D) somewhere in the (G) dark
My (Em) brother or my (Em/D) sister,
oh, how(Am7)ever lost you (D) are
I’m callin’ (G) you, yes (C9) you
out there (D) somewhere in the (G) night
& (Em) if you hear My (Em/D) voice,
then follow (Am7) ‘till you reach the (D) light
I (Em) know that you are (Em/D) lost out there,
so (Em/C#) cold & so a(C) lone
But (G) if you hear My (D) voice & follow,
I (C9) know I’m gonna (D) find & take you (G/D) home”
       (Em7-C/D-D7)

So (G) here’s to all the (C9) lost sheep
who are (D) out there in the (G) dark
You (Em) may not know where (Em/D) you belong
but (Am7)deep inside your (D) heart
You’ll (Em) hear the Master (Em/D) Shepherd’s voice
 like (Em/C#) echo in my (C) song
& (G) if you hear His (D) voice,
however (C9) small in that dark(D) night,
oh little (C9-B/G) lamb: I (Am7) know He’s gonna (D) find & take you (G) home (C) (D)

( Chorus )

Lost Without You

I'm lost without You & without You I just haven't got a clue
Nohope without You & without You I just don't know what to do
Life's all about You, You're the Essence of my being, through & through
Lord I allow You to use me whichever way seems good to You

I'm lost without You, You're the Essence of everything that I need
Before I found You life was filled with empty selfishness & greed
Revolve around You's what I want my life to do in every deed
I'm so astounded by You, You're the Wine I drink, the Bread I eat

I'm lost without You, You're the Light that I was so much longing for
Can't live without You, Jesus, You're the stuff of which I just need more
Sheer gone without You, I'm so thankful You came knocking on my door
Can't breathe without You, without You life knocks me out, I hit the floor

(Rep. all)

Love, Come Into My Life

Love, come into my life, love, come into my heart
Love, fill my soul with joy & light & never let it part,
Love, come into my life, come into my heart

There is a ray of hope for each lost soul
There is a glimpse of light for every man
There lies Salvation at the reach of every hand
& by faith, it can be yours

(Chorus)

The greatest gift of all is yours today
If you fulfill your part & ask, you'll find the way
Open your heart, the light will come
in all its might, in all its power

Love Doesn't Care What People Say

I've got a feeling, an honest opinion
an inner conviction to stand up for what's right
For there have been times I listened to people
caring too much what they'd call wrong or right

Now set me free, Lord. Help me to be what
You want me do be and not care what they say
For I must be free, Lord. & know what I'm here for
And see it through no matter what price I have to pay

(Chorus :)
Love doesn't care what people may say
It just keeps on loving the one anyway
Though thousands may try to toss you off the brink
No, love doesn't carfe what people think

Sometimes I doubt aand sometimes I waver
struggling to bring out the words on my heart
No compromise, no truth mixed with lies will
ever succeed to turn darkness to light

Help me to be bold now. a messenger sold out
on what I'm proclaiming wherever I go
So I'll be a fighter, willing as a martyr
to live and do die for the truth that I know

( Chorus )

Cause if you really love someone you're afraid of losing
You'll tell them the truth even though if may hurt
An honest foundation makes the best relations
Keep sharing your heart with the world everyday

Love Harder
(Song from the free Dave Mendoza album "Good Day to Die")

(Chorus:)
We've got to learn how to (Em) love better
(Cmaj7) love stronger, (Bm7) love deeper, (Am7) love harder
(Bm7) learn to hear (Em) much better,
(Cmaj7) feel stronger (Bm7) look deeper, (Am7) try harder (Bm7)


(Em) How any of us here can (Cmaj7) quite sincerely (Bm7) say
that we love (Am7) others (Bm7) in the (Em) way
that they are (Am7) yearning to be (Bm7) loved
- a love that's (Am7) truly from a(Em)bove?

Do we take time to make them see
that we are here for them 'cause we
renounce all lesser purposes than love
because that's what God is?

(Em) How any of us here can (Cmaj7) quite sincerely (Bm7) say
that we know (Am7) others (Bm7) in the (Em) way
that they are (Am7) yearning to be (Bm7) known,
accepted as one of our own?

The word "respect" means "look again"
so, look and recognize your friends
for who and what they truly are
because...

(Chorus)

(Em) How any of us here can (Cmaj7) quite sincerely (Bm7) say
that we are truly in the (Em) way
that Jesus Christ taught us to walk?
Our deeds tell more than what we say
So let us all do more than talk
and not just know but walk the way

How many of us are distracted by the means
of keeping rolling the machine?
We feed our bodies, not the soul
and consequently fail to know
what it is that makes us all grow
Oh,

(Chorus)




                                                      116
MEET THE MAKER
(G) Jesus, my husband, come and (D) save me
(Em) help me to enjoy the little (C9) things
Teach me (G) thankfulness, and the gift of con(D)tentment
for the (Em) blessings and sweet things your life (C9) brings
(G) Help me to remember time is (D) shorter
than the (Em) Devil sometimes tries to make me (C9) think
And that his (G) trinkets aren't really that im(D)portant
and when he (Em) tempts me, help me rise up and (C9) sing:

(Chorus:)
Meet my (G) Genie, if you (D)can
Say 'hi!' to (Em) Jesus, my ever loving (C9) husband
(Em) Me, I may be less than (C9) nothing
but (G) I've got an all-powerful (D)Friend
Meet my (Em) Maker, if you can (C9) stand
the shining (G) light of the keys of His (D) Kingdom
Little (Em) me, I'm surely less than (D) nothing
So, meet the (Am) Maker, (C) if you (G) can

(G) Jesus, my love, save me from tempt(D)ation
(Em) help me daily to make the right (C9) choice
(G) Let me serve you without reser(D)vation
and when I'm (Em) out there, let me be Your (C9) voice:

2x (Chorus)

MONSTER (ANYWAY)
Intro: (G- Am7-C-D)
You say, (G)God is a (C)monster, dark, (G)evil and (C)sinister
for al(Em)lowing a(C)trocities (Am) everyday (D)
Cause how (G)could He be (C)good and how (G)could He be (C)love
when He a(Em)llows hatred, (C)torture & (F)war, yousay. (D)
 So you (Em)call my God (C) evil, an old (Em) tough macho (Am) meanie
Who's (F) teasing us (C) all in some (D) kind of play
 And how (Em) stupid of (C) me to still (Em) keep on be(Am)lieving...
do you (F) mind if I (C) praise the Lord, (D) anyway?
Do you (F) mind if I (C) praise the Lord, (G) anyway? (Am7 C D)


You say we're all just victims of this ogre in heaven
& to Him you just know you will never bow
Cause He's bad and He hates you,
He won't do things as you'd do them if you could only be Him right now
So you spit out opinions about God and His minions,
we're all duped, brainwashed robots you'll free, you vow
from our slavery to madness our sickening gladness...
do you mind if we praise the Lord, anyhow?

(chorus 1:)
Cause (G) what's it you've (Em) got to give?
Can you (G) make one single (Em) cell live
or put a (G) smile on my (Am) face when I'm (C) down & (D) out?
Do you (Am) have a sol(F)ution or just (Am) more brain pol(F)lution
 Is there (C) truth or con(F)fusion in the (D) things you shout?
 Can you (G) brighten my (Em) day with the (G) words that you (Em) say
 can you (Am) keep all those (F) ghosts haunting (D) you at bay?
 Well, if (F) not, could you (C) please, and Sir, (F) ever so (C) kindly,
hum(F)anely, be(C)nignly give (D) me a break?
 And would you (C) mind if I (Am) praise the Lord (G) anyway? (Am C D)

Let me (G) tell you a (C) secret: all the (G) things we call (C) evil
and (Em) bad may look (C) different to (Am) us someday (D)
When we've (G) learned that those (C) very things we (G) loathed made the (C)difference
and our (Em) sufferings were (C) only the (F) price we paid (D)
 for a (Em) heart soft & (C) golden, melted (Em) broken & (Am) molded
by the (F) treatment the (C) Potter ap(D)plies to clay
And I'm (Em) quite sure, my (C) friend, when we'll (Em) see in the (Am)end
the re(F)sult of what (C) you cannot (D) see today
 I bet (C) you're gonna (Am) praise the Lord (G) anyway (Am7-C-D)

(Chorus2:)
Though (G) you had no(Em)thing to give, (G) yet His love (Em) made you live,
 put a (G) smile on your (Am) face when you're (C) down & (D) out
 He will (Am) give you so(F)lutions for that (Am) old brain pol(F)lution
 truth in (C) place of con(F)fusion, trust in (D) place of doubts
 He will (G) brighten your (Em) day with just (G) one Word He'll (Em) say
 and you'll (Am) finally ac(F)knowledge the (D) price He paid
 on the (F) cross on that (C) day when the (F) sky turned to (C) grey
and He (F) looked at you, (C) heard every (D) word you say
 and said, (C) "Darling, I (Am) died for you, (G) anyway!" (Am C D)

         More Than A Friend (25/7/04)

Come into the house of my heart, dear Lord
I need help cleaning up, scrubbing walls and the floors
I promise You won't find any "do not disturb" signs
You're so much more than welcome any old time

Come into the room of my heart, my Lord
All I want You to find, is a wide open door
If the place is a mess, Lord, excuse me for this
do You have a prescription against sloppiness?

Come into the home of my heat, my One
You're simply tops when it comes to really having fun
Feel free to throw out anything You think is no good
I trust & know You know best, Lord, that's understood

(Br.:) (C) There were times I (Ds4) felt I had to (G) hide what I had (Em) deep inside
      & thought the darkness wasn't all that bad, was blinded by Your light
      But now I know there's nothing greater than Your love, and nothing sadder
      than (Am7) someone thinking (B/G) they know better, who'll let (C) pride run with their (Ds4) lives

(Rep. Verses 1-3, swap 2nd half of verse 2 for:)
Come on in & let there be just You & me
I'll lock up the door & hand You the key

Come into the bed of my heart, dear Lord
Take my life, take my all, I just wanna be Yours
And although there are those who won't understand
You can love me, alright, cause You're much more than a friend




                                                          120
MOUNTAIN
Let's (G) go, My friend, climb that mountain with Me
we're gonna (F) sing & dance for e(C)ternity
This trail we're on may be quite rough & steep
but as you start to walk, I'll give you all that you need:

(A#s2) Strength to (F) climb when you feel (C) weak (G)
And the faith to make it up to that golden (A) peak

(D-C-G…)

Come on, My friend, climb this mountain with Me,
this is the mountain which before you couldn't see
when you were so distracted by comfort & ease
that you forgot to show people the way to be free

Now you know you're going somewhere
Step by step toward that crown up there

My Farewell           ( Hello Heaven)

Hello Heaven, good-bye, Earth
It’s been a good time, could have been worse
Don’t shed a tear, friends, if I must go into that
Light much brighter than anything we’ve known
We’ve had our good times & hard times, too
But be assured that Someone’s got a clue
Don’t weep my children, at least not for me
But if you must, weep for the darkness you’ll still see

For men love darkness more than the light
& that’s the reason there’s so much more wrong than right
So, this is my farewell, though the time I may not know
I’ll hear the tolling of the bell, just let me be prepared to go
Not be attached to nor cling to treasures
Pertaining to this world, I want to fly & just let go
So, hello Heaven, good-bye, Earth




                                                       122
My Hiding Place
My hiding place where no one goes, that's where I wait for them to know
that neither power, luck nor gain determine who will truly reign
My hiding place where this is heard: "In the beginning was the Word"
where neither day reigns nor the night, but only Your eternal light
my hiding place

My hiding place, where there's no room for wealth nor money to consume
but only love there reigns supreme, and shines on me its golden beam
My hiding place, that's where you'll find the One Who rules my heart and mind
So vast and great and yet so close, my every thought and dream He knows
My hiding place

My hiding place, that secret spot Your Holy Book has spoken of
where shepherd king David of old found refuge from the bitter cold
For he who dwells beneath Your wings will stand when all else around sinks
and they who find comfort in You know they've a Helper strong & true, my Hiding
Place

My hiding place, that's where you'll find me leaving this old world behind
a place of peace within the storm, You are my Rock, Safety and Warmth
You are the hand that shelters me, the only One Who sets me free
I can't get nothing out of life unless there's You for me to hide,
My Hiding Place

My Melody

You say you know me by the way I walk
categorize me by the way I talk
I'm just a gypsy beggar you can mock
& that's alright with me

You judge me by the way I sing my song
& whisper to your friend, that note was wrong
She answers, and his nose is much too long! What kind of freak is he?

(Chorus:) But I Just sing you my melody
a love song that could set your spirit free
And even though perhaps you don't like me
just one or two minutes, couldn't you listen?
Cause I don't wanna be the star of the show
I just want one thing & that's let you know
that there's Someone above you who loves you more than you know

You say attention's what he's looking for
Or, he's just after money, & that's all
Why don't you tell him to get on the ball & go to work like we?
And all the while you try to analyse
how could you ever even realize
that in my song a secret message lies
how could you ever see? (Chorus)

My Only Hope         (July 6, 2008)

As we're (Am) faced with the challenge to rise above
The (G) pain inflicted on us by the ones we love
The (F) lessons I glean lead me to conclude:
My (Dm) on(Am)ly (F) hope's (Gsus4) in (Am) You

Since it's hopeless trying to figure out
(G) what it is we all get so annoyed about
the (F) one thing that sticks out beyond a doubt is true:
My (Dm)on(Am)ly (F) hope's (Gsus4) in (C) You
in (Gs4) You
Lord, my (Dm) on(Am)ly (F) hope's in (Gsus4) You

It can be (Am) fatal to assume that flesh and blood can do
the (G) one thing that has been reserved for Someone Who
knows (F) all about our bugs and Who can fix'em, too
Our only hope's in You

Yet sometimes we expect of others more
than (G) what they presently are eligible for
we (F) press them into molds carefully construed
when our only hope's in (C) You
in (Gs4) You
Lord, our (Dm) on(Am)ly (F) hope's in (Gsus4) You

So (F) break our idols, (Am7) put a stop
to (Dm7) our delusion, (C) wake us up
The only One it pays to put
our eyes upon is (Gs4) You

The world doesn't need another pair of feet of clay
But Someone Who'll assure us that we'll be okay
I made up my mind, Jesus, it's You I choose
My (Dm) on(Am)ly (F) hope's (Gsus4) in (Am) You

Before I lose another bet I placed
on someone else's promises or pretty face
I'll stick to the solution that has proven true:
My (Dm)on(Am)ly (F) hope's (Gsus4) in (C) You
in (Gs4) You
Lord, my (Dm) on(Am)ly (F) hope's in (Gsus4) You
In (Am) You, in (Gs4) You
Lord, my (Dm) on(Am)ly (F) hope's in (Gsus4) You

As we're (Am) faced with the challenge to rise above
The (G) pain inflicted on us by the ones we love
The (F) lessons I glean lead me to conclude...
(Dm) (Am) (F) (Gsus4) (C)

Never Quit
No, I'm not giving in, I'll keep hanging on
I'm not giving up, never gonna stop
No, I, I refuse to quit, I'm destined to go on
I may not be that strong but I carry on
Never quit!

Do you sometimes feel as if nobody cares
no one shares the burdens that you bear?
Do you sometimes wonder "Is anybody there?"

Well I can relate if that's how you feel
I know it's real but I assure you, it's no big deal

Cause when temptation bids me to give in, saying, "You can't win"
and when the Enemy is closing in, I just grin and answer,

(Ch.)

Do you sometimes feel as though your life's a mess
the more you give, they all could not care less?
Do you sometimes wonder where's the point in this?

Well, I've been there, too, it ain't somethin' new
Whatever you do, grit your teeth and follow through

And when temptation bids you to give in, saying "You can't win"
and when the Enemy is closing in, show him your grin and answer

New Beginning
(Song from the free Dave Mendoza album “The King’s Return”)

Look at the signs of the (Dm) times: (G)
hunger, war, disease and (C) crime (Am)
Blinded guides leading the blind
mistaking darkness for the light

It's getting late, it's comin' our way
Don't hesitate to help God set things straight
Change is rolling in, so let's open the gate

(Ch.:)
Yes, the (C) End's coming (G) soon and with it (F) a new be(C)ginning
with it (F) a new be(C)ginning: God's new (Am) Kingdom and (G) rule
Yes, the (C) End's coming (G) soon and with it (F) a new be(C)ginning
with it (F) a new be(C)ginning: God's new (G) Kingdom and (C) rule


Yes, the Peace Train will arrive
after mankind's darkest night
Knowing the Author of Life
We will finally see the light

You can be free if you want to be
But there's no one so blind as those who refuse to see
Love is coming in, coming for you and me

(Ch.)

No Friggin’ Way (Nov.23, 2006)
Would I trade my faith for your deluded ways of hatred?
No friggin’ way, dude! No friggin’ way, dude!
Sell my life of freedom for a fake steak in the Matrix?
No friggin’ way, dude! No friggin’ way!

You can tell me all you want how life evolved in ancient swamps
Repeat your mantras ‘til you almost fall for them yourselves
Still I won’t believe a word of all your expert schemes
I’ve heard enough of all of that so put your book back in the shelf

Am I gonna bow down to your idol on the mount?
No friggin’ way, dude! No friggin’ way, dude!
Take your mark into my head or hand for a discount?
No friggin’ way, dude! No friggin’ way!

Maybe I won’t be as brave then as I feel right now
But I know my God’s gonna save me from your clutches anyhow
You can tell me to behave, but I still think you’re so depraved
Although your outside’s shiny like a golden polished cow

Am I gonna fall for you when all the others will do?
No friggin’ way, dude! No friggin’ way, dude!

Cause in my heart there burns a flame that’s gonna put your pride to shame,
A flame that’s even older than the fallen likes of you
In my soul there glows a name that signifies the end of your game
Satan, in the name of Jesus, I defy you

(solo)

Do you really think you stand a chance against the Master of the dance?
No friggin’ way, dude! No friggin’ way, dude!
No friggin’ way, dude! No friggin’ way!




                                                               130
No One Else

(Chorus:) Lord, there is non one else like You
        No one as marvelous as You
        No one as beautiful, wonderful, magnificent as You
        Jesus, You thrill me through & through
        There's nothing I can't do with You
        Jesus, You lift me up, raise me up, as you fill me up with You

(C) Everyday the sun greets me, the first thing on my mind is (G) You
My (C) first responsibility and (Am7) number one priority is You
I can do (Em) nothing without (C) You, cause there's...
(Ch.)
I give my plans up willingly, without You, I'm just silly me, it's true
Without Your re-directions, Lord, without Your sweet affection: no clue!
Lord, I haven't got a clue (Ch.)




No Place To The Snakes!

Give no place to the snakes, awake, for Christ's sake!
Their lies & their hate just don't cut the cake
They've been blinded like fools, they're the Devil's own tools
They are suckers for Pan & his motto, "Crap rules!"

Can't you see that their intention's to drag you to the pit?
Make you despise all that's good & forget about it
They won't stop until you cop out & become one of them,
join the club of those all heaven calls a crying shame

They're despisers of their birthright, they just toss it away
for a cheap mess of pottage that's seen better days!
'No place to the snakes!' is our motto today
Don't let any cheap excuses steal your crown away!

What it all boils down to & on what it all depends is:
Are you standing on the Rock or where DO you stand?
Is it Jesus & His Word or the System of man
that your faith is built upon? Rock or shifting sand?

No place to the snakes, nor the Evil one
if you listen to him, you're gonna come undone!
he's scared out of his wits of what you're going to be:
The Lord's Endtime power-houses, making history!

No one is strong enough to stand on their own, without
the Word, that standard in your life you will be blown about
with every wind of every doctrine, every silly act
cause faith is built by faithful study of the Word & that's fact!

No place to the Devil, not at any time or level!
If your suffer with us now, you're gonna reign forever
But if you choose to reign now, you'll lose, so beware
of the leaven of the Scribes & the Pharisees' share

(1st verse)




                                                                    131
NOTHING BUT YOU
(Tune bass string to D)

At last (Dsus2)all my visions have come true
and now I am living just for you
 The (D)songs that I’m (Dsus4) singing, I’m (Dsus2) singing for (D) You
& (D) inside my (D4) head there’s (Dsus2) nothing but You

The past is forgiven – all things new
my life - it is hidden just in You
The (D) sum of the (Dsus4) lessons I’m (Dsus2) learning is (D) You
& (D) when it comes (Dsus4) down I’ve got (Dsus2) nothing but You

Chorus:
(D/F) When it comes down to it, You are my Everything
 (D/G) nothing & no one to really re(A4)ly on but (D- Dsus4- Dsus2- D)You
(G) Hey, (A) hey, nothing but (D- Dsus4- Dsus2- D)You

The mess I was living touched by You
is just the beginning of love so true
I’m a hole that’s waiting to be filled up by You
& all that I yearn for is nothing but You




                                                   132
Now
Now is the moment to touch and to feel You
Now is the time to let You live in me
Now to experience Your total realness
Now I can know, I may trust, I must be

Now You're as real as You ever will be
Now I can taste You & know I'm alive
Now I can tell You're always right here with me
Now is the place in time I finally realize

(Ch.:)
Now & forever You're Power to heal us
Now You're the Essence of all that we need
Now we are clean through the Words that You give us
Now we can be just as free as we'll ever be

Now is the moment I want to live in You
Now is as good a time as can ever be
Now's the time to finally let go and let You
Now You are here, so it's perfect enough for me

Now - one more moment in service to my King
Now's where the past and the future unite
Now and each day I know You're Everything
Happiness, comfort, bliss, love, warmth and power and light

(Ch.)
Now we can be just as free as we'll ever be

holding on to the promises He's given us (G7)
Bold in the power of God, wielding his Spirit's sword
yielding our all to the Lord

Now is the hour to stand in the gap & hold on to the calling before us
Now is the time to step forward for God & to fight like true faithful soldiers
All things are possible if we believe, we have been destined to win
Put the whole armor on, we won't surrender, no,
let us stay faithful and sing:

(Chorus)

Come, let's all lay aside foolishness, shallowness, worldliness,
selfishness, self-pity & pride
No time for nursing wounds, we must keep fighting on
& in our calling abide side by side (modulation to A)

Passion
Gimme some passion, gimme some wildfire
gimme that crazy, crazy lovin', gimme some life, yeah
Gimme those wild hours of intense emotion
Gimme some heat, oh just a few moments of total devotion

What makes you think that I don't deserve it?
If love is our God, we might as well show it, might as well serve Him
Love is a power, much more than a sermon
It's something you live with every beat of your heart
stop acting so German!

(Chorus)

Gimme some thunder, gimme some lightning
Gimme the one thing I just can't resist, let's make life exciting
There's Someone waiting now, He wants to show you how
to turn your life from a desert into a crystal blue ocean

Perfect God
I woke up this morning & once again
I looked at the state that my life is in
Beginning to wonder if it’s right
Is this really the way that things should be
Or have I failed God or’s He failing me?
Then I hear His voice, “Not in your life!”

(Chorus:)

I don’t have a perfect life,
I’m no perfect husband to my wife
But I have a perfect God
I don’t have a perfect house
& man, you should see the car I drive
but I have a perfect God

And He’s all I need & all you need, too
With Him there is nothing that we can’t do
& know everything’s alright
Cause His perfect care cares for me & you
& His perfect strength will make all things new
& love us, imperfect as we are
Cause what greater love can a great God do
Than give His own Son for both, me & you
To show us that we’ve got a perfect God


So I walk through my day & once again
It’s me and my Savior holding my hand
& I’m thinking, “Gosh, what a life!”
For I can see beauty in everything
& meaning & sense where before there’s been
barely the hint of a glimpse of light

(Chorus, last half twice)

Popularity (July 31 2009 - translated & adapted from German original)

People are asking me, "Hey, where's your money, dude?
Are you nuts? You can't just live the way it pleases you!"
But they don't understand that I can't live that way:
another cog in the machine, same old rut every day

They say, "How come he doesn't want to play our game?
Are you a coward, or a weakling, are you not ashamed?"
But I just know that your game ain't the one that's meant for me,
your hunt for entertainment, cash and popularity

(Chorus:)

Come, oh come, heavenly One
Come shine on us like the sun (2x)

Popularity is not the thing for me
because the One for Whom I live was nailed onto a tree
He wasn't popular, He was no superstar
That was a lie cooked up by someone that's gone way too far

My Lord was persecuted, executed like a thief
So to think they'd make me famous would be quite naive
As long as I am truly servant of God's Son
this world and I are never gonna be as one

I'm only here to say how much you're being loved
No matter how often you turn your back on God
There is no greater beauty than His glorious light:
Jesus the Son Who brightens up my darkest night

(Chorus 2x)

(Rep. last 2 verses)

(G) I woke up this (A7sus4/G) morning
with a (B/G) cloud around my (C9/D) head
wishin’ (G) that the day was (A7sus4/G) over,
nearly (B/G) wishin‘ I was (C9/D) dead
That’s (G) when His voice came (A7sus4/G) to me
& my (B/G) Everything, He (C9/D) said,
“Would you (Em7/G) like to (Dsus4/F#)know the way?“
I (G) answered, “Lord, You (Dsus4/) bet!” He said,...

(Chorus)

Later through the day that counsel must hace slipped my mind
there were many bills to pay & there was nothing I could find
Till an angel tipped my shoulder & asked, “Brother, are you blind?
You’re sitting on a heap of blessings, please let me remind you:” (Chorus)

Finally, in the evening the ole punk came ‘round again
He said, “Man, you’re such a loser, you’re so stinkin’ full of sin!”
I said, “Wait a second, Buster, just let me load this here gun!”
& I blast him double barrel, I still watch him scream & run as I... (Chorus)

(add:)
(G) Praise Him for my (A7sus4/G) troubles,

PRICE HE PAID (Jan06)

(Em/f#-Cmaj7-Dsus2-As2...)
(Em/f#) He (Cmaj7) was a (Ds2) Man of (As2) many (Em/f#) sor(Cmaj7)rows (Ds2-As2)
And a Man acquainted with grief
But the Lord cast all our transgressions on Him
And by His stripes we are healed

(Cmaj7) And (Em)by (Ds2) His stripes (As2) we are (3x) (Em/f#) healed (Cmaj7-Dsus2-As2...)

As we partake here of His body
remembering the sacrifice He made
we become one, even His body
Let us remember the price He paid

(Cmaj7) Let us remember the price He, let us remember the price
Let us remember the price He paid

(Chorus:)
(Em/f#) Let (Cmaj7) us re(Ds2)member the (As2) price He
Let us remember the price
Let us remember the price He paid
He paid

He was despised of men, rejected
we turned our faces away from Him
Surely He's borne our griefs & sorrows
wounded for us & for our sins

(Cmaj7) Wounded for us & for our (3x) (Em/f#) sins

All we like sheep have gone astray, yeah
Everyone turned to his own way
He was oppressed, He was afflicted
yet there was nothing He would say

So, (Cmaj7) Let us remember the price He, let us remember the price
Let us remember the price He paid

(Chorus 2x)

Real Thing (or: The Drugstore / or: Endtime Underground)

Come on in & strip your soul bare, my friend
What do you stand to lose but your sins?
And what you stand to gain is all things instead
all things you've only dared to dream

We may seem nothing but a weird bunch, but then:
Open your eyes & look again
& what you'll se is called the REAL THING, my friend
God's chosen prophets of the End

(Chorus:
We're the real thing, my friend, this is it, come on in
God's wild, stark naked Underground
If it's real things you want, it's the real thing you'll get
your search is over, you've been found
Bring your children, your friends & start living again
bring anyone you care about
If all that you've know is just another dead end
Just make your choice for steppin' out & join God's Endtime Underground

Come on in, this is the Drugstore, my friend
a place of which our prophets dreamed
we just get high on the truth we found in Jesus, our Man
Get ready, soon He'll come again
To wipe out Satan's reign of evil & sin
Our tribulation's gonna end
All we can offer you's our love, life & Him
open your heart, let Him in

(2nd Chorus:) He's the Real Thing...
Receive Jesus & then you will be born again
tell everyone you care about

(3rd Ch.:) ... We're His children, His friends, we're His bride of the End
We're everything life's all about
With Him in your heart there'll be new life without end
Just make your choice, receive Him now

RELAX
Re(E)lax, you didn't miss (C#m) anything
it's not like the (A) place you've been
was cut off from (B) everything

Relax, you're right where you're meant to be
even if that's not what you see
you've just got to have trust in Me

Every(G#m7)body else seems to have so much (F#m7) more fun than you do
And you (A) tend to feel as maybe I've for(E)gotten about (B) you
But the place I chose for you is one where I can draw you close to Me
And if (A) you would only let Me show you, (B) you would clearly see:

(Ch.)

Some other place than this, you think, it all would be alright
It wouldn't be such a fight & there's be no more lonely nights
But right here is where I've ordained to be the place for you to come
that I am all you ever needed, all you could ever dream & want

(Br.:)
(As2) Let go & let (B) Me
Be all you want to see
And I guarantee
That (F#m7) you'll be happy in the end
for (As2) having trusted (B) in My hand

(Ch.)

           Rise Above (English Version of “Steig’ hinauf”)

Proclaim it now with all your might:
Under a bushel’s no place for the light
Open the door and let it out
What you receive is what you must shout
You’re not alive just to stay alive
No, that’s not what life’s all about

The choice is yours: high or be low
Make up your mind & let us know
The higher path’s the one you are called to walk
All others lead where you won’t go
No man lives just to himself alone
No, brother, that just isn’t so

(Chorus:)
Don’t allow to remain unfound all that’s yours yet to retrieve
You were born to walk higher ground, life is yours, if you believe
Pay no mind to “it can’t be done” nor to those who push & shove
Mountain peeks are your destiny, do what you must do for love:

Rise above!

Down in the valley they start to scream
Because you’re ruining their scheme
“Hey, that’s no way, get yourself back down here!
Take your place in the machine!”
Don’t listen to them, their Titanic is sinking
Don’t let them rob you of your dream

(Chorus twice)




                                                  145
Roses or Daggers

Turn off this way I feel, your thoughts and words are real
Are your words roses you pass on or knives & daggers made of steel?
Will your cutting remarks just leave a host of scars
Or will your words blind up & heal the broken hearts along your path?

(Chorus:) Choose now which way to walk
     Be mindful when you talk
     & careful with your choice words
     //: will they be blessing or a curse :\\ (2x)
     will they be blessings?

Society today teaches us wicked ways
You turn your television on
& your home’s flooded with decay
Chase out these evil birds that utter hateful words
Lest you be one more casually & yictim of the prince of dirt

  (Chorus 2x)

Run To My Arms                 Nov.17 2004
Run to My arms, I will hold you so close, I will keep you from harm
Run to My arms, you won’t need any clothes, here you’ll be safe and warm
Run to My arms, baby run like the wind, run as fast as you can
Run to my arms, baby, run to My arms again

(G*) I have heard you in the garden, (F#/D*) searching for Me
You came with (Em*) pain as you saw you were not as (D*) I would have you be
I’m calling you to cast aside your garments and your robes
I long for nothing but to feel your skin, feel you so close

So, run to my arms, remove these silky gowns, let your hair blow wild in the wind
Run to My arms, strip off these things which hide the warmth of your body from My skin
Run to My arms, let nothing come between us so that only you remain
Run to My arms, baby, run to My arms again

I wish only only to touch you & I care not what they say
Come to me now, my bride, my love, let nothing cause delay
Let your heart pound out each step that brings you close to Me
Your steps be swift, your thoughts be of none other, let Me be all you see

(Rep. Ch.1)

               Sacred Ground

St. Teresa, pray for me that I might make it back some day
That I might get my feet of clay back on sacred ground

Hey, St. Martin, pray for me that one good day I, too, might see
That in no other thing but love is real happiness found

You know I do believe but I don` t always put feet to it ,
I need a little help from all you guys up there in Heaven,
ginme sacred ground (Put my feet back on sacred ground!)

Hey, St. Peter, pray for me just like Jesus once did for thee
When the old serpent thought that he might sift you like wheat

You know we all get weak but if we`ll ask we`ll receive
That` s why I need a little help from all you guys up there...

(Chorus:) Put my feet back on sacred ground

(Bridge:) Send someone down here to me to take me by the hand
      Help this feeble mind of mine to finally understand, hey, hey ...

(1st verse + Bridge) (Chorus 4x)

Salvation Rap
In the Beginning was the Word, was the Word
and the Word was with God and the Word was God
And the Word was made flesh (was made flesh) and lived among us
He came unto His own and His own received Him not

(Ch.:)
But as many as received, as received, as received Him
to them gave He power to become the sons of God
even to them that believe, that believe (believe) on His name
to them gave He power to become the sons of God

You see, He's standing at the door of your heart, of your heart now,
knocking, waiting for you to let Him in
You see that all you've got to do is open up your heart now
And just ask Him, receive him, ask Jesus to come in

(Ch.)

You see, we've all been sinners, we've all made mistakes
and that's why God sent His Son that through His death we might be saved
Because God loved everyone in the world so much, He gave
His one and only Son so that through faith in Him we could be saved

(Ch.)

You can't work for it (work for it) because it is a gift
And He won't take it back from you (back from you) because it is a gift
you can't work for it, pay for it, earn it, it's a gift
you can't be good enough nor too bad, can't deserve it, it's a gift

(Ch.)

For by grace are you saved through faith - not of yourselves
it is a gift of God and not of works - not of yourselves
for the wages of sin is death - not of yourselves
But the gift of God is eternal - eternal - eternal - eternal life
But the gift of God is eternal - eternal - eternal life through Jesus Christ

(Ch.)

Just pray this pray & repeat after me and say, "Jesus, come into my heart!
Forgive all my sins, give me eternal life, I believe You are the Son of God..."

(Ch.)

SAVE OUR SOULS!
There's a storm on the horizon, many will drown in the flood
But it's in your hand to save them: don't be guilty of their blood
Son of man, I made you a watchman to warn the wicked of their doom
But if you fail to give them warning I’ll require their blood from you
Can’t you hear their call, can’t you hear them, too?
Their spirits are crying out to you:
“Won’t you hear our call, won’t you save our souls?
Won’t you come & do all you can do?

(Chorus:) Save our souls! Save our souls! Save our souls from the grind of the old!
          Save our souls! Save our souls! Save our souls from the darkness & cold,
          Save our souls!”

This Titanic’s slowly sinking, sinking to an icy ground
Don’t waste precious time just thinking; seek the lost & those who will be found
For there are those who still remember there’s more to life than vain success
And they are reaching out their hands now, won’t you save them
Won’t you save them from this mess?

(Chorus)

Can’t you hear their calls, can’t you hear them, too?
Their spirits are crying out to you:
“Won’t you hear our call, won’t you hear our call?
Won’t you come & do all you can do?

(Chorus)




                                                             150
            Say What You've Got to Say
Boy, you've got something to say
so don't just lock it away
Let it burst, let it flow
They don't need more silly songs
but one who tells'em what's wrong
and which way to go

(Am) Say what you've (G) got to say
(Em) speak what's on your (F) heart to speak
Show them the life and way
and truth they may not seem to seek
Give what you've got to give
Don't hide what you received
They may not show today
what soon will be known, that you've got just what they need

It may not promise success,
this road that looks like a mess
compared to Mammon's big guns
But you're to free them from fear
and not just tickle their ears
there's more at stake here than fun

(Ch.)

(Br.:)

(Dm) Give them new (Am) life for real
a (F) love that's not (G) found in this world
(Dm) Tell them a(F)bout the deal
(Em) that's guaranteed (Am) out of this world
Never again may this chance come around
To lead (G) this soul Home

So, (Ch.)

Seasons
(G---D-C—Em---D-C—G---D-C—Em---C-G)

In the spring time of my life I heard the birds like angels sing
Thrilled by all the newness every day of life would bring
The sky, the animals and flowers, all seemed to be as one
in the spring time of my life, my dance on earth had just begun

In the summer of my life, I danced, I laughed, I drank and sang
Sought the company of others, held many a maiden's hand
I said, "Sun, you'll be my friend forever, moon, you'll be my bride
And I hoped the dance would never end with you right by my side

In the autumn of my life I felt the wind begin to blow
And the fruits of what my life had sown clearly began to show
So I harvested my tears and laughter and deemed it the best
I enjoyed the fruits of all my labors and laid down to rest

In the winter of my life I could hear the angels sing
Ever beckoning to come back to the Source of everything
There was some remorse but also joy as I could hear Him say
"Welcome back, enjoy forever what I've done for you this day!"

In the seasons of my life I learned that everything belongs
to love God and one another is the purpose of our song
He that sows in tears will reap in joy and gather his reward
In the seasons of my life I learned to love and trust the Lord




                                             152
SEE YOU LATER           (ENGLISH VERSION)

Where you stand, I must have missed
Perhaps your face will tell me this
If you won`t pull back into your den
Do something for me,don`t run off again!
    Where you`re headed, no one really knows
    Least of all yourself, but that`s the way it goes
    Anywhere a pretty face will take
    A young woman who`s just just learning how to fake

(Chorus:) Listen to the word I`ve got for you,
        there`s nothin` you can say or think or try to do
        that`ll ever manage to replace respect
        See you later, once your senses have you back
I don`t know with whom or how you sleep
I just hope that he`s a little deep
Not like the rest of those superficial dudes
Who threaten to pluck you up by your roots.
          (Chorus 2x)




                                                     153
Seguiré / I’ll Go On

(Chorus:) Con El seguiré a cualquier lado, con El me iré al citio dorado
          With Him I’ll go on – wherever. With Him I’ll walk on to heaven

No me importa donde vaya, tampoco peligros que hayan

And I don’t care where He’s going, nor which perils I’ll be knowing

No me importa que haga el malo, no me iré de Su lado

Whatever the foe may do, from God’s side I’ll never move     (Chorus) (add:)

Jesus es Amor que nunca falla, Dios es el calor que acalenta mi alma

Jesus, He is Love that won’t let me go, my God is the warmth inside my soul

Y aunque no sé donde vaya, sé que mi Dios nunca falla

Though I don’t know where He’s leading, I know He will never leave me

Y aunque ya no veo nada, sólo sé Jesus me ama

And though I still can’t see nothing, all I know is Jesus loves me

Amor, la verdad, amor – nada mas

The one truth is love, come on, rise above

Jesús, que vengas, danos que tengamos

Jesus, please, Lord, come, give us a new Home

Send Me A Light
Sometimes you feel there's a world on your shoulders,
day after day slowly we're getting older,
faint seems the visions and dreams that inspired us yesterday,
caught in a web of taboos and possessions
was the desire for success my transgression?
All I want now is to find a way out, a way to escape.

Somewhere I know there just must be an answer,
a purpose for me in this world to exist for,
I don't know where but I won't give up searching till I find,
I can't believe that the dream I once lived should be over,
and I don't see how it could be
that it all should have left me nowhere.
Give me new faith to hang on to,
give me new hopes I can cling to,
send me a light that will guide me
through all this night around me.

Funny it seems how the things we most long for,
once obtained can leave us cold like a closed door,
all those material things can bring is such emptiness.
Trapped in a cage of clichees and belongings,
I don't need a house or a car to feel strong in.
All I want now is to finally break out, a way to escape.

Somewhere I know there just must be an answer,
a purpose for me in this world to exist for,
I don't know where but I won't give up searching till I find,
I can't believe that the dream I once lived should be over,
how could it be that it all should have left me nowhere.
Give me new faith to hang on to,
give me new hopes I can cling to,
send me a light that will guide me
through all this night around me.
Give me new hope to hang on to,
give me new faith I can cling to,
Send me a light, sned me a light, to guide me through the
night.




                                                  155
Send Me Right Back To You
Here I stand at the start of a new thing,
somehow, somewhere, someplace new.
And I know that wherever it leads me,
you'll show me just what to do.
As long as I'll stay true I'll hear from you
and I'll know where to move.

And I don't know, will I succeed
or will I fail in my pursuit.
I just know that the sowing is my job
and the reaping is all up to you.
I'll do what I can do to spread the news
and what else can I do but tell the world about you.

And the road isn't gonna be easy all of the time,
this I know.
But it's better to suffer a little
than to live like a king just for show,
and I'll go high and low, fast or slow,
until everyone knows.

Here I am singin' to someone,
sending my thoughts up to you.
And I know that whether they'll like it
or whether they won't, you're the truth.
And when the race is run and work's all done
and I'll finally be through,
send me right back to you,
send me right back, send me right back on to you,
please let me be with you, let me, send me,
just sent me right back to you!




                                                    156
Servant of the King
You may speak with the tongues of angels, you may know all things
May be brave & defy all danger that this world may bring
You may know how to walk on water, you may dine with kings
May establish your own world order & wear a diamond ring

But can you joy in the simple glory a sunset brings?
Or have faith to believe the story about the King of kings?

And if you do, can you yield all questions to His royal hands?
If you’re calling yourself a Christian, would you go to the end?
Would you follow Him up that mountain where His cross stands
Where His blood once became a fountain, nails pierced His feet & hands?

And would you partake of that communion of God with men
And take the gift of Salvation from His Own hands to find

(Ch.:) He‘s real, so real; more real than anything you see or feel
       And you yield your will, surrender everything, become a servant of the King

In the valley of indecision multitudes trudge along
Perishing without any vision, souls void of tune or song
For too many neglect their mission to right the wrongs
They’ve avoided the Master Fisher’s call for way too long

So, lift your eyes up unto the harvest, white in the fields
Oh, have mercy on all the starving souls who long to know that... (Chorus 2x)




                                                              157
Shadows

Who will be My torch in the middle of the night?
Who'll whisper My truth in the void of any right?

(Ch.:)
Run from the shadows, you must be strong
soon the night will break into a new blue dawn
Hush, little darling, you've run too long
soon the light is gonna sing its victory song
Herald the morning with its golden glow
Soon the summer will melt the winter's snow

Fly on the wings of an eagle, like a dove
Hide in the lonesome wilderness, My Love

(Chorus)

...leave the empty grave forever far below
...leave the shadows far behind

Shady Cloaks of lies -- the Devil's favorite game
Pulls 'em 'cross their eyes -- a dirty rotten shame
So they won't even realize that they've been fooled &
they've been framed by the shady cloaks of lies
one of the Devil's very favorite games

Tell them there's no plan, that there's no purpose at all
tell 'em it's coincidence they're living on this ball
Tell them God is dead, no one to catch you when you fall
& pretty soon you'll have 'em so confused & scared
you'll see they won't resist at all

(Chorus:) Shady Cloaks of lies from the time children go to school
          Shady Cloaks of lies only a few find they've been fooled
          Shady Cloaks of lies from the cradle to the grave
          The truth was crucified with Jesus, but He rose
          again so that we could be saved

Try to count each piece of dirt, polluting every land
Try to count each chemical, each dead bird in the sand
Try, (to) count all crimes & evils, every hair on every skunk
& you still won't come up with the amount of lies that
you've been handed by the punk

(Chorus)

Shady Cloaks of lies -- the Devil's favorite game
Pulls 'em 'cross their eyes -- a dirty rotten shame
So they won't even realize that they've been fooled &
they've been framed by the shady cloaks of lies
one of the Devil's very favorite games

Shine

(Chorus:) Shine, shine, shine!
          Go & let the whole world know just what it is that’s on My mind
          Shine, shine, shine!
          And I will let them know that I’m with you if you’ll only let it shine

This is My will for you, to let your light so shine
If you will yield to Me they’ll know that you are Mine
A city that is on a hill no one can hide
I’ll be your flame if you’ll proclaim my name & burn free

Let it… (Chorus)

The power is yours to let there be darkness or light
The power is yours to choose to turn wrong into right
A city that is on a hill no one can hide
I’ll be your flame if you’ll proclaim my name & burn free

Let it shine,… (Ch. 3x)

   Silver & Steel

My Love's eyes are shining just like silver & steel
there is no way to sing about the way that I feel
Sweeter than honey, Her skin's whiter than milk
Her hair as dark as the night, her touch as tender as silk

She's got me running on the water, she's got me ridin' on the wind
There's just no way I could describe this crazy state that I'm in
She makes me rich man or a pauper, thief or a prince
my universe is out of order if my Love won't let me in

(Chorus)

My Love's eyes are shining just like silver & steel
there is no way to sing about the way that I feel
Clearer than water, Her heart's purer than gold
fills me with strength when I'm tired,
makes me feel young when I'm old

There's no way I could be without Her
without Her love I'd be lost
I'm like a fish out of the water, I need Her at any cost
Won't let Her slip right through my fingers
won't let Her part from me again
I need my love right here to linger until the very end




                                          161
Simply Existing
Simply existing is hard enough to do
So, if you don’t mind me sayin’ so
But I don’t need the likes of you
To tell me I don’t do anything stewing here in my own brew
But that simple little living thing’s already hard enough to do

(1st line) So don’t come `round here calling me an
uneducated little fool
I’m a slow but I’m a happy man & well, can that be said of you
Cause that simple ...

(Bridge:) You come here tellin` me all that I`ve got to do
       but I`d rather listen to the voice I know is true

(1st line) If you don`t know where you`re goin` ,boy
         we`re gonna see who`s been the fool
         just sit down, get your instructions, too
         from the one who cares for you
         & can turn simply existing into a life joyful & true




                                                      162
Sing About You

I shouldn’t sing about You
Though that’s just all I can do
So maybe I’ll just cover up
& make this sound like soda pop
Some jingle from the TV slop
Cause I shouldn’t sing about You

I shouldn’t sing about You
Though You’re all I know that’s true
So maybe I’ll just drop Your name
Before I put myself to shame
& I will be the one to blame
cause I shouldn’t sing about You

I shouldn’t sing about You
Though there’s some folks who just do
Scream “Hallelujah,” sing & shout
Tell all the world what they’re about
I wonder how come they’re allowed
When I shouldn’t sing about You

(Br.:)
(Am7) Maybe I can make You a big (G) myste(F)ry
So no one has to know what it is I believe
I don’t know if I’m bold enough to tell the world about Your love
After all, they’re smart enough to figure out what You’re about
Let the others sing & shout, I’ll hide my talents in the ground

I shouldn’t sing about You
Some folks just shirk when I do
Cause You’re just so unpopular
You’re all else but a superstar
They all say it would go too far
If I kept on singin’ ‘bout You

I shouldn’t sing about You
But there’s nothing else I can do
So let’em try to wipe me out
I simply can’t help sing & shout
Aah, Jesus, You’re what life’s about
I can’t stop singin’ but You

And on & on & on & on
Till all those jerks are finally gone
I’ll keep on singin’ ‘bout You


                                           163
Sinning Saint
(Chorus:)
I’m not better than you no matter what it is you do
We’ve all blowin it, it’s true: I have surely messed up, too
I’m not bad better than you
I’m a sinning saint like you

Some folks just can’t wait
They’ve got to bend each bent line straight
They see things black & white
They’ve got to know what’s wrong or right

But Jesus said, it’s best to wait
To see what grows there: wheat or weed
As much as we would like to be,
Perfect’s not the way we emerge yet

(Chorus)

If you’re better than Joe, Congratulations! Way to go!
If you’re better than Jim, self-righteousness might be your sin

Just remember, that little splinter
In Jim & Joe’s eye, they’ll survive
It would seem, that old beam
In my own eye needs more attention

(Ch.)

Sleep On

Is this all that you have found?
All you live for – here & now?
Nothing more than what you see right now,
Each sight, each touch, each sound

Is this all that you believe?
All you hear & feel & see?
All that matters to you is this moment
However fleeting it may be

Sleep on, sleep on
If that’s all you wish to see
Sleep on, sleep on
If that’s what your choice will be

Do I scare you with my song?
Think that I’m the one who’s wrong?
“Things should stay where each of them belongs
and they’ve been this way for so long”

(Ch.2x)

(C) Let's get together, I'm more than your best (G) friend
(C) My love is forever and with Me there's no (Dsus4) end
(Ch.)
I'll be your water when you thirst, make you feel better when you're worst
If you will only put Me first I'll give you everything
My name is "Love, all that you need!", If you feel trapped, I'll set you free
If you will only come to Me, I'll ease your every pain
If you'll let Me make love to you, you'll see there's nothing we can't do
I'll be your power when you're weak show you the answers that you seek
I'm all of this & so much more and I am standing at your door
I'm the One Who created you, forever I'll love you

I will show you the solutions, child, there is nothing more to say
I'll clear away all your confusion any price for you I'd pay

I'll be your Love of all loves, I'm gonna help you rise above
and when your life on earth is through I'll be right (D) there to welcome (G) you
(I'm always here to comfort you)

SOON

The sky will (Bs2) burn and time will (G#m°) stop
All that we (F#m°) yearned for will fin(As2)ally start to come to pass

And soon the curse will be removed again
Then is this madness gonna end
And we will finally be one and walk on hand in hand

When You’ll come
When You’ll come

Soon You’ll wipe the teardrops from our eyes
You’ll finally silence all those lies
That we’ve been fed for centuries by the traitor, day and night

And soon the world will finally wake up
& be restored to what it was
We’ll start again & play it from the top, the way it ought

When You’ll come, when You’ll come

Soon the sky will open like a tent
You’ll beckon us to come on in
And join the greatest wedding party there has ever been

Oh, soon, we’ll finally make love not war
The way we used to do before
the fall of man & soon you’ll open up Your Kingdom’s door

When You’ll come

Soul Murder June 15 & 16, 2008

There she (C) goes a(D)gain, to her own (C) slaughter, just (D) like a (G) lamb
(Em)
Unaware of them conforming her to their scam
Obediently plays her role
She follows, though there’s no goal
She faithfully walks down that road everyday
Through the heat and through the cold
To the murder of her soul

(Em) She carries a (D) heavy (G) weight (C)
Determined she won’t be late
Habit has told her that this is her home
And the place where she belongs
She (C) tells her friends (D) things that will make her fit in
And subtly as in dreams takes part in the machine

And where (C) once a child uninhibited, shameless and wild
Change is taking place in her spirit, her style, on her face
Obediently plays her role
She follows, though there’s no goal
She faithfully walks down that road everyday
Through the heat and through the cold
To the murder of her soul

And I (Em) bleed (D) inside, though my (C) anger & pain I can’t (G) hide
Where has (Em) gone the (D) child that I (C) once used to know
Who was (B/G) real, without show
With a (Am7) light shining (D) from her (G) eyes

To my God I cry, “Oh please, don’t let the love in her die!”
Save her from their lies they are feeding her now
Make her stronger somehow
And believe what they don’t (Ds4) allow

As (C) she tries to (D) play that (G) role (Em)
And follows where there’s no goal
Faithfully rides down that road everyday
Through the heat and through the cold
To the murder of her soul
To the murder of her (G) soul

Soul Rain
Love, stop breaking my heart,
I gave it to you, you tear it apart.
Love, hold on to my heart,
two souls gropin' 'round alone in the dark.
I feel the rain fall down on my soul,
just soothing the pain that I've come to know.
I hear the rain, the ground is so dry,
wash away the stains that covered my life.

Listen to it, the soul rain that washes me clean,
just try and catch the soul rain that falls deep within,
I've got a thing pouring under my skin I call soul rain.

Tears, yes, I have cried tears,
in secret, alone, hiding from my fears,
love, start melting the ice,
this world is so cold, infested with lies.
I feel the rain pour into my life,
it waters my heart and streams from my eyes,
I hear the rain, I open my hands,
I open my lips, I kiss and I drink the dew heaven sends.

Listen to it, the soul rain that washes me clean,
just try and catch the soul rain that falls deep within,
I've got a thing pouring under my skin I call soul rain.

Listen to it, the soul rain that falls deep within,
just try and catch the soul rain that washes me clean,
and when I smile there's a rainbow that beams
through my soul rain.

SPIRIT                    (April 5 & 6, 2007)

Spirit, come and be life to me
Fill me with ecstasy
Make me all I should be
Sweep me away

Spirit, fill me with more of You
Let me be through and through
Possessed and empowered to do
Works eternal and true

Breathe Your magic into me
& teach my eyes to truly see
When I belong to You then I am free

Be the music when I sing
Let me see You in everything
Teach me to live in service to the King

Bring meaning to each speck of dust
Help us do what we really must
And keep our focus on eternity

Spirit let me see You everywhere
Know You are always there
Teach me to really care
Show me the way

Captivate my heart & soul
& keep my vision on the goal
alarm me when my mind’s about to stray

Whisper words of life to me
& be the wisdom that I need
for every challenge I may face today

Keep my heart ever close to Yours
Be all I yearn and hunger for
& please, don’t ever let me go away
from You

(1st verse)

…Sweep me away (rep.)

Sum of the Parts
Guess I'm not much of a hero today
I'd rather let You be the Star, anyway
Of all the things I can ever do or say
not one could begin to compare with the price that You paid

Guess I'll let You be the Hero today
we're only Your weak, humble brides anyway
If You're strong in our weakness, guess that's okay
You're perfectly welcome to take the lead now and always

I'm hopelessly lost without You, Lord, today
You're more than a compass, You're (both) guide and the way
I'm totally helpless without You right here
You're all that has mattered & will ever matter for real

Cause whether we live, Lord, we live unto You
And whether we die, Lord, it's unto You, too (whatever You choose)
As much as the world has to offer each day
You're more than the sum of the parts any of us might play

So please, take this song from my heart, Lord, I pray
I only return what is Yours, anyway
If I may only partake of Your grace
I'll know 'll have found more than I could any other place

And if I worship, Lord, let it be You,
and not just an image my mind made of You
Cause You deserve no less than love that is real
our passion, commitment, all we can give, fathom or feel

G-D-C-G Am-C-G D-F#/Ds-G-Em Am-B/G-C-D

STANDARD OF LOVE

(Asus2) Love don't give up hope to soon,
though you're not born with silver spoon
in (A/E) hand or mouth, nor your own room
with hobby horse & lots of toys,
don't (F#°/A) worry away the afternoon,
those (F#°/D) pampered little girls & boys
are (Asus2/C#) not as rich as (Esus4) you

For (Asus2) I have something more to give
to My children than to live mere
(A/E) superficial, little lives
with everything that money buys
& (F#°/A) yet an emptiness within
that (F#°/D) grows & grows with every sin
of (Asus2/C#) selfishness & (Esus4) pride

All (Asus2) the distractions in the world
could never numb the pain & the hurt
that (A/E) comes from leaving out the word
proceeding from the mouth of God
to (F#°/A) shine a light onto your path,
bring (F#°/D) love & light where darkness was,
the (Asus2/C#) code to bring your system up
(Esus4) to the standard of (Asus2) love
            the standard of (A/E) love
            the standard of (F#°/A) love (F#°/D)
(Asus2/C#) Lift the standard of (Esus4)love

Obliterated, ridiculed have been My teachings by those fools
themselves professing to be wise, selling for truth a pack of lies
they claim their darkness to be light, declare their wrongs to be right & the only way of life
So, I sent prophets, one by one, to show them that this can't be done:
the Lord & Builder of the house expelled from His own & cast out
they persecuted everyone, they even killed My very Son, how long will you go on?

Mete out destruction, mete out the wind, a mighty hurricane
is what you'll reap, & righteous judgment for your sins
you self-righteous & foolish men, deceived by Satan & his kin:
Be ready, for I'm bringing in the standard of love

Prefer your neighbor to yourself & don't hurt anybody else
for if you give you will receive; if you will live you must believe
And man will reap what he will sow, this simple rule for all to know:
that's the standard of love

Do unto others as you would that they do to you; that is good
And keep your brother fed & warm, don't wish upon them no ill nor harm
No greater love has any man than he who would die for his friends
That's the standard of love
(Lift the standard up, hold the standard up, raise the standard up, lift the standard of love....)

St. Francis’ Prayer

There’s an old (D) song we used to (G) sing
Called “All I (Bm) Want Is Serve The (G) King”
God, how I long to feel that (D) way
To want (G) nothing else but pour (F#/G) myself
(Em) out for You (A) every (D) day

I thought my foes had hoofs & hornes
To vanquish each & everyone’s what I had sworn
But no one came as close to putting out my fire
As the most treacherous of all my enemies, my own desire

(Chorus:)
So, let me (Bm) give all I can (D)
Let me no (Bm) longer seek to just re(F#m)ceive (A)
Let me do (G)anything for any(D)one, any(Bm)where
& let me (Em)pray with (F#/Dsus2) all my (G) heart (A)
St. Francis’ (D) prayer

Where there is hate, let me sow love
Let me no longer seek to just be loved
Where there is injury and pain
Let me forgive again, again and again

For it’s in giving we receive
By letting go we find the treasures we most seek
We’ll be forgiven as much as we forgive
And it’s by dying that forever we live

(Bridge:)
Lord, (Bm) make me an instrument (A) of Your (D) peace
(Bm) Let me bring light where (A) darkness (D) is
Let (G) me, let (A) me

(Chorus 2x)

Straight to Me

Straight to Me’s where I want you to run, want you to come
To find the answers that you seek
Straight to Me’s where I want you to fly, to send your cry
Find everything you need

I’m always right here for you to come, for you to run to
To give you all you can receive
I will always answer your requests, yes, everyone
As much as you believe

Here with Me you will be be
Safe, protected from all harm,
Sincerely loved and cared for
Here inside My loving arms
You’ll find true love forevermore

(Rep. Song)

Summer's Born
In the distance I can see the sun arise and chase away
the clouds of doom.
Long before the daybreak darkness filled the sky but now you see
the first flowers bloom.
Glittering sunlight kisses my eyes and fills my mind
with heavenly tunes.
Everything the cold of winter put to sleep now comes to life
with the first breath of June.
Gone are the rainy days, summer has come
and washed them away.
Now winter's pain has paid for the life that's being born before our eyes.

Like a butterfly emerging from the dark of it's cocoon
so summer's born.
It's the promise of a new life without pain
the curse removed, the bonds of death torn.
Glittering sunlight touches my eyes
and wipes away all doubts and fears.
In the silence of the morning you can hear
the voice of God whisper in your ears.
Now all of creation groans
longing to be freed from it's chains.
Melt all the ice and snow, heavenly warmth,
come, fill my everlasting days.

SURRENDER

(Chorus:)
(Asus2) Lord, I surrender, surrender to You
(G) Lord, I surrender (D) all that I've (C) got (D) to (Asus2) You (rep.)

Lord, I surrender myself and my pride to You,
Lord I surrender all that I am to You
Lord, I surrender my spirit and soul to you
Lord, I surrender, I give it all back to You

Lord I surrender, my body and flesh to You
You gave it all and I give it all back to You
Jesus, surrender is what I will do for You
I lift my hands and I give it all up to You

(Ch.)

Lord, I surrender, I lay myself down before You
for You to take me & do what You want to do
Lord, I am empty, I pour myself out to You
for You to fill me, Your Spirit to run through and through

Lord, I surrender, I give it all back to You
Total surrender is what I was born to do
Lord, I surrender, I open my self to You
Please, won't You take me, take all that I am to You

(Ch.)

(Br.:)
I (Em) cease from running and I (D) fly in(G)to Your (Asus2) arms

My (G) life is death unless I (Ds4) live for all You (Asus2) are

               Take it by Faith

Take it by faith that there is more to life than what you see
Take it by faith there is a perfect plan for both, you & me
Take it by faith that at the end of the road you`ll find all you dreamed
Take it by faith that it all ain`t as bleak as right now it may seem
Take it by faith, take it by faith
Take it by faith that you` re becoming just what you were meant to be
Take it by faith he that created you did it so perfectly
Take it by faith this world `s a mere passage way to eternity
Take it by faith there `s so much more for both, you & me
Take it by faith, take it by faith (Bridge:)
Take it by faith that we`re all much more than some accident in space
       That you`re in good hands by it is sheer amazing grace
Take it by faith, take it by faith sure as a hammer hits He`s gonna right your
wrongs
Take it by faith there is place for you where you`ll feel you belong
Take it by faith compared to forever this life isn`t very long, take it by faith
(1st verse)

TALKIN’ ‘BOUT FAITH
(Capo 2nd)
I (G) used to think that strong is (C9) strong, & (Ds4) weak is weak (C9)
But now I'm starting to see things quite differently
That (Em/G) things are not always the (C9) way they (Ds2) seem to be (C9)
below the surface there's a deeper mystery

And though my ships come home with broken sails
I will not quit for I know my God cannot fail
Circumstances have become irrelevant
when you leave everything inside His mighty hands

(Chorus:)
I'm talking 'bout faith - not faith in numbers
but the unseen, yet almighty hand of God
I'm walking by faith, though I may stumble
I'll get up & keep on walking against all odds

There is a way that seems right to many a man
But before you leap, I'd say, better look again!
That road to fame may turn out to be a dead end
While God's way up is down, for His true mountain men

Thank You, Jesus, Lord, You always win
When we lose all, You still give us back everything
We're persecuted, mocked & scorned, despised by men
But that's no wonder; just like You, we'll rise again

(Chorus)

(add:) For eye has not seen & ear has not heard
        the wonderful things that God has prepared
        for those who hold on to His Word




                                                 180
       Thank You Hollywood

One of those days, don `t know if I really would
But I just might catch a plane & fly to Hollywood
& I’d stand there & take a long last look
& then I’d blow the place apart, now wouldn`t that look good
Then I’d steal a car, maybe a Chevrolet
or a T-Bird or a Mustang & I `d leave L.A.
& I’d drive right up to the Grand Canyon site
where Thelma & Louise took off & I `d take that ride
But in the sand I’d leave a note that read,
(Chorus:) ´ Thank you Hollywood` , Thank you Hollywood
        Thank you Hollywooooooooooood!
& after that I’d get out of the car
yeah, like Batman or E.T. you know, with just a tiny scar
& then I’d spread my wings & set out to fly
& kill a hundred million folks who, well, just had to die
& then the boss `ld scream ´cut` & I’d be a star
so I’d shake his hand & say ´Thanks again!`
   (Chorus)
made me lotta wood, guess I really should fly to it ...

The Birds Fly South
The birds fly south in autumn, & they return in spring
So, when You will return, my Love, I will have learned to sing

One night while I lay listening to some symphony or song
I felt the fire glistening in my love's heartbeat strong

A vision clearly struck me of things that are to be
Of sceneries, like fairy tales in books our children read

The birds fly south in winter, & I will fly to You
At the carcass the eagles gather, so, will You call me, too?

The Busker's Song
Every night I sing and play guitar,
take my music from bar to bar.
I walk in, there they are,
starin' at me like at some creature from Mars.
I say "Hi!", they go "Huh,
what's the freak up to, anyhow?
Seems he don't quite know who we are:
we're our town's intelligentsia!

Don't you know we're the coolcats,
can't you see we're the cream of the town,
won't you bow, to the Jet-set,
we're the cool-gang, the insider crowd.
Don't you know we're the coolcats,
can't you see we're the cream of the town,
won't you bow, we're the Jet-set,
and we don't need no strangers around!"

I play my songs, just three or four,
'cause I know they can't take anymore,
some pay and leave the scene of crime,
before I can make 'em eke out a dime.
When I'm done with the show,
no one dares clap or say "bravo".
Say "Don't you know who we are?
We're our town's Saturday night disco stars

Don't you know we're the coolcats,
can't you see we're the cream of the town,
won't you bow, we're the Jet-set,
we're the cool-gang, the insider crowd.
Don't you know we're the coolcats,
can't you see we're the cream of the town,
won't you bow, we're the Jet-set,
and we don't need you strangers around!"

Every night I sing and play guitar
I take my music from bar to bar.
Well I don't care just who you are,
whether king or queen or pope or czar.
I know you're so intellectual,
so educated, so critical.
But when it comes down to this acting "cool":
it's just yourselves you're tryin' to fool.

So you think you're the coolcats,
so you think you're the cream of the town,
well I think you're just bullheads,
call it cool, man, I call it lukewarm.
So you think you're the coolcats,
so you think you're the cream of the town,
well I think you're just bullheads,
all this coolness is bringin' me down.

THE CALL

(G) Whoa, (D) whoa, (Em) there’s something you’ll (C) want to (D) know
Whoa, whoa, there’s a light with a golden glow
Whoa, whoa, there’s Someone you’ll want to meet
Whoa, whoa, His love’s for eternity

Let’s (Am7) say you’re a prisoner, your (B/G) fears are the walls
That (C) keep you from His arms, from (D) living at all
Convention’s the warden, deceit locks the doors
Well, I’ve got the keys, babe, if you’re ready for more

(Chorus)

You’re so disillusioned from all that you hear
You’d like to be free but there’s so much to fear
Well, I’ve got the answer, tailor made for you
Just call out to Jesus, He’ll come rescue you

(Chorus:)

Whoa, whoa, He’s right here, knocking at your door
Whoa, whoa, have no fear, love can do much more
Whoa, whoa, He’s the truth that you want to know

Whoa, whoa, take His keys and break down the walls

The Day
I know it's hard when you don't have a reason
Nothing to live for, nothing to believe in
everyday's struggle to just keep existing
I know how it feels accuse I've been through the same thing

But then one day a friend & I were talking
about religious trips & groups, you know, kind of joking
He told me about the People of Love then
We met the next day to go & see them

I still remember it, how the door opened
Two arms flung around me, a smile, a warm welcome
True songs of life were sung, words of love spoken
I was a lost sheep, my heart young & broken

People bald hands & sang prayers before eating
I knew that this was the love I'd been seeking
& then they asked me if I would receive Him
I didn't know but how could I resist Him

(Chorus:) The day first believed in Him, I'll never forget it
The day my new life did begin I'll never regret it
The day I first believed in Him, the day I was born again

Something inside me was suddenly changing
And I came back almost every evening
soon I quit dope, though at school friends were laughing
Suddenly I knew my life had a meaning

Never again I'd be tired of living
Now I know all my mistakes are forgiven
God fills with life every moment I'm breathing
And I know I'm donna make it to heaven

I know it's real & I really believe it
It's nothing you must do, only receive it
He’s knocking on your heart's door, of, can't you feel it
If you just let Him in you'll be so glad for the day you first...
(Chorus)
(you'll never forget it....)
(remember I said it...)
(you'll never regret it...)

The Deeper Meaning of Everything
The (C) deeper meaning of (Am) everything is (F) hidden (G) in plain (C) view
But if your god is coincidence it's plain that you've been screwed
The deeper meaning of everything is what we learn to see
if we acknowledge we're blind and bound and long to be set free
(F) Oh, (G) what do you think you (Am) know?
Has your (F) world room (G) left to (F) grow?
(G) What do you think you (Am) see?
every (f) flower, (G) bird or (C) tree
has a (G) lesson to teach (Am) you & (F) me if (G) you see...

(Ch.)

So you've really got a college degree
you think you know and see
more than folks like me
I just enjoy what God's giving me
revel in His synphony
the best things in life are free
if you see...

The Devil Hates Me For That
Hey, how's it goin'? You know, I'm badly attracted to you
How're you feelin'? Is my message comin' through?
Open your ears, & I'll sing you a tune, &, Baby,
maybe you'll hate me for that, but
I've got an urge, I've just gotta keep singin', uh-huh,
the Devil hates me for that

I'm like a river of music, rollin' right over your ears & fears
& washin', washin' your tears away
Come with me, darlin', we'll float through the evening
& hold on to each other's hands 'til the break of day
(The Devil hates me for that!)

Said, hey, can you hear me, or do I have to turn up the P.A.?
I've got a feeling your mind is tempted to drift away
But I've got something to tell you & I mean it
to kill your blues in nothing flat
I'll give you some news to make you feel like you're dreamin'
Uh-huh, I know the Devil hates me for that

I'm like a diamond of dust that's a-sparklin' inside of this small ray
of light, just tryin' to drag you out of the dark
Hang on to me & we'll head for the sunlight
floatin' right out of the night for a happy day
(The ole boy'll hate us for that!)
Tell ya somethin', I think the angels will love us for that
Every Saint up in heaven's rejoicing, uh-huh,
I think they're all tickled pink about that
Yeah, the Man on the Top really digs what I'm doin', uh-huh,
I think He really likes me for that
I think He really loves me for that

The Enemy Is Freakin' Out
(Chorus:)
The Enemy is freakin' out!
He's going mad without a doubt
He's pulling all his big guns out
But there's nothing he can do
he's just a raging fool
and we're gonna stand our ground

"Lucy in the sky" has gone electric:
he's panicking and freaking out right now
The battle got intense and rather hectic
Won't be long till Jesus knocks him out

(Chorus)

Everytime the Devil pulls a smart one
& thinks he's gonna score a point this time
he finds himself out-smarted, licked & out-gunned
So he'll just throw a fit & scream & whine

(Ch.)

(Bridge:)

Old (Asus2) Satan't just a bluff & not a (D) real threat
Intimidation's what he's all about
He may pretend he's really quite some (Bm) big cat (G)
But (Em) when God's hounds come, (A) he'll just run & (D) shout

The King's Return (Dave Mendoza - June 29, 2009)


You (Em) can't win a (D) battle (C) half-hearted(B7)ly
nor has any drifter yet crossed the sea
That glorious crown isn't won easily
So fight on, my brother, for the victory

(Chorus)

(G) Look toward the day when our (D) King will come back
Don't let (Am) shiny temptations get (Em) you off the track
He'll give you everything you'll ever lack
So shine on, brother, (Ds4) let your light (C) burn
un(D)til He re(Em)turns (D-C-B7)

This world lies in darkness, no light do they see
We're not on vacation, there are souls to be freed
Do not be deluded but cling to the truth
So He'll know you're His when He'll come for you

(Chorus)

(Bridge:)

And (G) though the road's rough and the (D) journey is long
(Am) keep your light pure and your (Em) heart filled with song
Let (G) your mind be clear and your (D) faith ever strong
on this (Am) long, (C) long (D) road back (Em) Home (D-C-D)

(Chorus)

THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS LOVE
If to(Em)day was your (D)last and you (C)knew it,
how much (Em)time would you (D)spend on (C)things
that mean (Am7)nothing in the (D)scope of eterni(Em)ty?


Every minute would seem so precious
Every second would be treasured by you
And the (Em)things of this (D)world would seem (C)pointless & (G)dim
Only (C)one thing would (D)make sense to you.

You would (G) stop worry(D)ing about (C) money
You would stop caring ‘bout what they say
You would (Em) stop thinking (D) of prest(C)ige & clich(G)es
If tod(Em)ay was your (D)very last (C)day (2x)


You would want to love those dearest to you
On your brink on that journey above
And make sure they know how much they mean to you
Cause the only thing that matters is love (3x)

(1st verse)

You’ll know just the worth of what you’re holding
When you’re facing your journey above
Everything becomes abundantly clear in those moments
For the only thing that matters is love

    The Race Goes On

'All things remain the way they were' , the fool, he cried
'Nothing will change' he thought, yeah well, & that same day he died
Be not deceived by tales of beautiful & strong
Don’t fall asleep, for change will come, it won’t be long

//: The race goes on ://

'What’s that to you?' , you ask & call me 'holy preacher man'
But I just give what I receive, that’s all I can
I can’t believe in things like pure coincidence
Too many things I see were said, make too much sense

//: The race goes on ://   (Bridge:)

The race towards total confusion
to bring the deaf & blind delusion
I just can’t put my fingers on the hour, the day
but it will come
As surely as the night is followed by the sun
//:The race goes on :\\ It just goes on & on ...

Ds2-B/Ds2-C6-G

There – there goes a real queen
One who’s got everything
that a man would want
From the woman he loves

There – there walks the real thing
No matter how small she seems
against those big shot imitations
on your TV screens

Where are all those beauty queens
when you’re a man in need
Of just a little bit of love
You can touch indeed

(Br.:) C6-G-Ds2-B/Ds2

In this whole world I have found nothing better ever
True beauty beats all those clowns who think they’re so clever
She chased away all my frowns with her smile – Forever
I’m gonna sing it out (Em) loud, you’re a (A7) taste of heaven

(rep. whole song & first 2 verses)

There goes the real thing
Babe, you’re a real queen

Ds2-B/Ds2-C6-G-Ds2-C6-G-A7…

Girl, you’re so much better than their pomp & their lies
Everyday I thank my Creator for you opened up my eyes
And if I’d write a million letters how could I ever deny
That baby, He put us together, He’s the Cause for you & I

You & I, Babe
Cause you are my real thing
The one who’s got everything
That a man would want from the woman he loves

(THE STORY OF) VIRGINIA BRANDT & HJALMER BERG

(Em/G) Virginia was a (C9) rich girl in (Gsus)1917 (Dsus4-D-Dsus4-D),
she (Em/G) wasn‘t really (C9) fond of
the a(Gsus)ristocratic (Dsus4-D-Dsus4-D) scene
So, (Em/G) she eloped with (C9) Hjalmer
from her (Gsus) well protected (Dsus4-D-Dsus4-D)world
& that‘s (Em/G) how we got the (C9) story of
Virg(Gsus)inia Brandt & (Dsus4-D-Dsus4-D)Hjalmer Berg
(Em/G)- (C9)- (Gsus)- (Dsus4-D-Dsus4-D)...
Now, Hjalmer was a singer of good old gospel songs
Though he was poor, Virginia knew that with him she belonged
for something was to happen, someone was to emerge
from this unusual union of Virginia Brandt & Hjalmer Berg

A tragedy bound ‘Ginia to a sickbed, paralyzed
But Hjalmer wouldn‘t give up & opened up her eyes
Said everything is possible – those promises still work!
& claimed the healing miracle of Virginia Brandt & Hjalmer Berg

The fame of ‘Ginias healing spread quickly thr‘out the land
Turned many into believes, though some folks had her banned
And in a tiny, wooden, Oakland California hut, the world
got ready for the baby of Virginia Brandt & Hjalmer Berg

They named their baby David, and beloved sure he was
He turned into a prophet, a reacher for the stars
& through him I found faith, hope, love & freedom like a bird
And so today I thank God for Virginia Brandt & Hjalmer Berg

(Bridge:)
(Em/G) Everything makes sense, each (C9) tale begins and ends
The (Am7) details well designed & (Dsus4) planned
(Em/G) Fools are they who think that (C9) all‘s an accident
You‘ll (Am7) see when we‘ll come ‘round the (Dsus4) bend.

(C9) They can’t stop our rain, no, (B/G) they can’t help it
& (Asus4/G) we’ll go on until one (A) day we’ll (Asus4) win, I sing
(C9) They can’t stop our rain, (B/G) they are but fools

(C9) They can’t stop our rain, (B/G) they’re bound to lose
(Asus4/G) For God’s on our side, we can’t (A) help but (Asus4) win
(C9) They can’t stop our rain & (B/G) you will see
(Asus4/G) The truth will fill the Earth as the (C9) waters cover the (G) se(C9)as
cover the (G) se(C9)as

(G) They can’t stop our rain, even (C9) though they try
The (G) latter rain that I’ve ordained shall (C9) never run dry
(D) How can they raise their hands up? (C9) Fools they that try!
The (G) flame that I have kindled shall (C9) never die.
(D) For I am with you and you (C9) are My children
& I (G) love you with an everylasting (C9) love.”

The Year Love Disappeared
There are some weird things happening in the World today
It seems they're slowly taking all our sense away
& though you still can't see the writing on the wall
I know that time keeps ticking & a hard rain's gonna fall

There are some bad birds hanging underneath the sky
controlling wants & wishes while our feelings die
& though we still can't see the end, it's getting clear
to see we're living in the year love disappeared

This is the year we learned to run
I knew someday it had to come
This is the year we always feared
This is the year love disappeared

All those tv commercials have programmed our kids
to thinking getting rich is really all there is
this is the decade when material things replaced our need for love
& closed our minds to values from above

Thief In The Night
He came, He came like a thief in the night
He came like a thief in the night
We were all like zombies, we were hypnotized
by that tv happiness & Hollywood lies

Oh, we were all too busy lovin' ourselves
& we had turned this World into a piece of hell
Yeah, we had all been blinded by the Serpent's light
until He came, He came like a thief in the night

(Chorus)

Yeah, we had craved for power, our lust was greed
We were fanatical egotists, spilled the seed
We wore with pride the tattoo beneath our skin
We'd built a raging kingdom we were servants in
Where every right was wrong & every wrong was right
until He came, He came like a thief in the night

(Gsus) I have been told many things to believe in
(C9) I have been told things that (Dsus4) turned out a (D) lie
(Gsus) One of the things they said not to believe in
(C9) Turned out to be the truth (Dsus4) for wich I‘m (D) ready to (intro) die

I have been told “the Bible‘s symbolic, that‘s all“
And that paper, not gold is what makes man rise up or fall
“It‘s all in your mind; the truth is a matter of interpretation
What you will find is nothing“ ... oh, stop, I can‘t hear anymore, you know,

(Chorus)

(Bridge:)
(Gsus) There is a light wich no mortal eye‘s seen yet
(C9) There is a sound wich no (Dsus4) ear has yet (D) heard
Gsus) There is a truth wich will blow your finite minds
(C9) There is a wisdom that‘s (Dsus4) not of this (D) world

I have been told that if you become like a child
You‘ll never grow old in a world that‘s so far out & wild

Dig this, you cone heads, pseudo intellectuals
Concocters of theories, I‘m ready to die
Eat this, dictators of false education
The science you boast of ‘s a bittersweet lie
Nothing of all that you‘ve told us could ever live up to this
Stand back, I‘m ready to live & to die




                                                                      198
                      This is it

Work at it till you get it right
Even if you have to stay up all night
Work at it till all the pieces fit
& you stand back, cross your arms & think
This is it, This is it!

Don` t give up till you get it straight
Brother Fun, oh well, he can wait
Don` t surrender, never quit
& never give up before you can really say
This is it!  - This is it!

This is it when the morning comes
This is it, right here in your arms
Looks like this time I really got it right
This is it, this is it, baby every little bit of it




                                             199
THOU SHALT LOVE

 (G) Hey, Mc Gov’ner, ruler, have you (C9) gone insane?
(G) Don’t you know that evil doers have (C9) hell to pay?
You (G) slap us in the (C9) face with your (G) lies every(C9)day
& you go (D) on & on & on as if you (C9) planned WWIII
to be happening by latest next (G) May. (C9) Hey, hey, hey, (G) hey. (C9)

Your greed & your selfishness, they take the cake
You sleep & you dream when will you awake?
To the fact that you might wind up with hell to pay
For the crimes & wrongs you perpetrate on the poor
& the needy you said you would save

Hey, hey, hey, (D) hey, (C9) (G) don’t you hear Him (D)...say,

(Chorus:)
Thou shalt (D) love, love, (C9) love, love, (G) love, love, love
-- all else will (D)...fade away (C9) (G)
Yes, thou shalt (D) love, love, (C9) love, love, (G) love, love, love
-- why don’t you (D) start today? (C9) (G)

Turn around, remember, there’s a deal you made
When you said that you’d accept the price He paid
Instead you’re just another sad addition to the weight
Of the cross He took up on that hill, that those you would
have killed might find life & be saved, Hey, hey, hey, hey
Don’t you hear Him say

(Chorus)

(D) Only what you do in love is (C9) ever really gonna count
& (G) ever really gonna stay
(D) Love is still the answer to the (C9) problems of the world,
no (G) matter what you do or say, I said

(Chorus)

(Bridge:)
 (Asus2) Do you really think that Heaven (C9) waits
For (G) someone sowing cruise missiles & (D) hate?
(Asus2)
                 Hey, hey, hey, (Esus2° ) hey (Dsus2°)(Asus2)...
(Chorus)
Thou shalt (Esus2°) love, love, (Dsus2°) love, love, (Asus2) love, love, love
-- all else will (Esus2°)...fade away (Dsus2°) (Asus2)
Yes, thou shalt (Esus2°) love, love, (Dsus2°) love, love, (Asus2) love, love, love
-- why don’t you (Esus2°) start today? (Dsus2°) (Asus2)

Tiempo del Fin                                   21.2.04

Manana la vida será mas facil de lo que es hoy dia

se piensa el idiota que ignora las senas de la sombra oscura

La guerra avanza y pronto nos traerá la última etapa y parte del tiempo del fin


La Bestia subirá del agua de muchos pueblos y gentes y harà

la guerra en contra de los que tienen el testimonio de vida

se abrirá el libro de las palabras de vida del Cordero, pues, es el tiempo del fin


Profetas de los siglos heacharon sombras de hoy en sus profecías

Perdidos los almas de los que siguen al hijo de la perdicion

Benditos los muertos que mueren en el Senor desde ahora, ya que es el tiempo
del fin


Benditos los muertos que en el Senor mueren de ahora

Benditos los muertos que mueren en el Senor

T.I.M.E.        (Feb.20, 2007)

How well do you really know the heart of your wife,
the heart of your husband, the heart of your child?
How well do we really know the heart of God?

How much do you really take time to find out
the souls of your loved ones and what they're about?
How well do you really hear the voice of God?

How well can you really hear their innermost cries
their deep, secret longings & hidden desires?
How much can we really say that we love
the least of our brethren the way we'd love God

(Ch.:) It takes (C) time to learn to (Fmaj7) love
       and that's the one (Am) thing that we're all running (Fmaj7) out of
       It takes time to learn to care
       to really tune in, realize they are there

      So (C) why do (Dm7) we al(Em7)low our ene(Fmaj7)my
      to steal from us the one thing that we need
      to learn, to see, to hear & feel & really be
      'cause love is spelled t.i.m.e.
      (Give'em your time!)

For what do I really care, immortal souls
or fragile possessions, and temporal goals?
How much can I really say I'm putting first things first?

How much do I really invest in the stocks that won't crash?
Do I build on the Rock?
How much do I really pour into the values that will last?




                                                     202
Today
Oughtta be hittin' the road,
oughtta be hittin' a load of folks out there today
Got something stuck in my throat
somebody don't want me to get anywhere today

So I'm-a pull out my keys
and I'm a-stickin' my sword in the face of the Enemy
After all, am I free, or am I free,
or am I free, or am I free?

Free to go where He shows,
free to be who my Lord tells me to be today
Free to do what He says
free enough to serve Him, free to obey

If I don't make any sense
is it possible friends you have not yet looked God's way?
But if you lend me a hand
He can teach you to stand upon His rock today

(Ch.:)
Cause today is the day Love can show you the way
and no matter what they do our say
Today's the tomorrow you dreamed of yesterday
the sun shines, a good time to make hay
yes, today is a good day to live and a good day to give all you got,
today

Love is more than a pond,
it's an ocean upon which we all can sail away
it's as big as the sun
& you can change anyone with just one of its rays

Come & let's make a move,
come & get with a groove, things are gonna be okay
It's not a hard one to choose
what have you got to lose, c'mon let's have some fun today




                                                         203
TODAY IT ALL MAKES SENSE

Memories of mine painted in shades of grey
Times I thought I would not see the light of day
Growin’ up’s a hard task when you don’t know why
Or if there’s any purpose in the tears we cry

Meanwhile I’ve learned trials are often heaven –sent
Though most times you don’t know what’s comin’ ‘round the bend
When the night is darkest, give it one more try
Even if you don’t care if you live or die

(CHORUS:)
But I can see it now, finally it’s all so clear (it all makes sense)
Now, that the sun broke through the clouds & made them disappear
Yes, I can see it now, finally it all makes sense
Those deep & dark turns in life’s road that I went thru’
Today it all makes sense

Though tomorrow’s not visible to our eyes
I know, I know someone in whose hands it lies
Faith & trust are hard to keep when no one’s there
Until you finally see there’s help from everywhere

(CHORUS:)

(last Chorus:)
But I can see it now, finally it’s all so clear (it all makes sense)
Now, that the sun broke through the clouds & made them disappear
.....the way you put me to the test ‘cause you knew how it would end
.....my life’s road with all it’s bends
Yes, every lesson you had to put me thru’,
//: Today it all makes sense://

Together
United we'll stand but divided we'll fall
that's why we simply must stick together
Together we're great, separated we're small
we've got to fight and march on together

Let's choose to win for the sake of us all
let's choose to run, win, work, stand together
Let's do our best to heed and answer the call
for unity and let's walk together

(Chorus:)
For the sake of you, for the sake of me
for the sake of all: let's get together
For the sake of truth, for the sake of peace
for the sake of love let's get together

You and me, we were meant to be one
because we'll be much stronger together
A three-fold chord can't easily be undone
That's why we've got to hold on together

Let's become like the Father and Son
as They are One, let's all be together
Let's not falter but stick to our guns
Let's be in heart, mind, soul, truth, together
(Ch.)
We've got the answers to the world's problems
but only if we stay together
We've got the power to master the hurdles
but only if we take them together

You and me, sister, may never be perfect
but we can rise above sin together
You and me brother, will never be heard if
we won't join hands and sing together
(Ch.2x)

To My Family

When you were born you filled my life with joy on that cool autumn morn My little girl,
my precious gift of love, you came, so sweet
Your little eyes exploring all around you, always open wide
Such lively eyes, intensely studying everything they'd see

I sang & danced those first days of your life, holding you in my arms
I still recall singing to you, rocking you to sleep
Now time has passed & I've watched you learning how to walk & talk
& now my love, you’re even learning how to write and read

 And someday soon you'll have grown up and maybe you will hear this song
Remember that you’ll always be the girl that one day came
from Heaven to me

My little boy, red cheeks, big eyes, you're truly any father's joy
Can laugh, can cry, & sometimes you don't know which of the two
You grow so fast that when I've gone a few days I feel years have passed But even then
you cuddle up, I'm still daddy to you

you're showing me my weaknesses & strengths just like a mirror's glass
for you reflect the love, the joy, the pain that we show you
And yes, I know, together we will always be in heart & soul
& though sometimes you're not with me, my son,
you can be sure I'll always love you

My little wife, mother of my children, partner of my life
you hold me tight, assuring me each day & every night
You're loving me, putting up with my faults & helping me
I couldn't see where I would be without you today
And if sometimes it got too hard to bear when things just weren't right
I thank you now for that you stayed & stuck it out with me

My faithful one, we've surely come a long way since our love began
And I believe we'll always be a true family & now we wait for number three And yes, no
matter what may come, whether ill, death or harm we'll sail through the storm & be safe
His arms

TO YOU
(G) Please, Jesus, (Ds4) be the One that (Am) they will hear with(C)in my (D)
song
(G) let it be (C) Your voice they can (D) hear (C-D)
Please, Jesus, be the light that shines through me both, day & night
help me to make Your signals clear

Let there be nothing left in me of pride and selfishness
Let what they see in me be You, Jesus
Cause I want nothing else but You in place of my old self
Come in and make everything new

Cause (Em) all I (C) want is (D) make sure You know (Am) I belong
and (C) all that (Em) counts to (D) me is just to (Am) give it all
to (C) You (Em-D-Am)
To (G) You

Lord, make it right don't let me lead no secret double-life
Make me hot, not trying to be cool
Lord make it true that I see everything the way You do
Settle for less? I'd be a fool.

(Bridge:)
Cause (Em) without You, nothing (D) turns out (G) right
ex(C)cept for You, all My (D) truth is (G) lies
the (Em) only way I can (D) turn for (Am) light's to (C) You - to You

(Chorus)

... to (C) You (Em-D-Em)
to (C) You (Em-D-Am) (2x)
To (G) You (Ds4-Am-C-D-G)

TRUST!
(Esus2) When the bills need to be paid (Dsus2) and your income's kinda late
you (Asus2) think they can no longer wait - (E) trust!
When you don't know what to do, think the world is through with you
Life's a fire, you're the stew - trust!
When there's no one left around, friends & helpers can't be found
& nothing's feeling safe & sound - trust!
When everybody everywhere seems to get the better share
no one knows that you are there - trust!

(Asus2) Trust that I'll come through for you,
(E) trust I'll do what you can't do
(Dsus2) Trust I'm gonna see you through (Bsus2)

(Esus2) Trust! (Ds2)...

When you don't know what to say, panic's not too far away
Don't be curled up in dismay - trust!
The Enemy is closing in, you're just about to lose your grin
wondering when I'll come in - trust!
When they're knocking on your door & you're the one they're coming for
think you can't take anymore - trust!
Nothing's the way it should be, nothing you can clearly see
wondering what the clue could be - trust!

Tube Song (I've Had Enough)

I've had enough of this hype
it's taken too much of my time
Yeah, I've had enough of all this violence & crime, Lord, I've had enough
Baby, turn off that TV
Tell me, can you remember you & me?
Honey, don't you think there's so much more to see in each other's eyes?
Let's make our own real live movies
Baby, come on, let's do it
Cause I've had enough of all this make-belief & going through it
I wanna control what's my mind
& not be a zombie, left behind
The most precious thing we've got is time, so let's stop wasting it, 'cause I've had enough

Each night I'm turnin' on the TV
no, I don't know just what's drivin' me
My hand is glued to the remote control
Sometimes it's just as if it bought my soul
And as I'm zappin' through the channels
until my head is really quite a mess
I witness murder & destruction,
guns shooting, fist fights & abduction
Oh they show me all the things that I should have
Oh they tell me when to cry and when to laugh
Oh, they teach me what is wrong & what is right
Yeah, they tell me who to love and who to fight
But... (Ch.)
I now discover many other things
to do on my after-work evenings
I dedicate my time to music
or maybe I just sit and read a book
Maybe I'll take you to a restaurant
or we'll go hit the park & have some fun
If all else fails, let's do my favorite:
we'll get undressed & jump into the night
Not only skinny girls are pretty
like they're tryin' to tell me on the TV
Cause I know true love & emotion
beat any photograph in motion

(Ch.)

Turn Around (Nov.29-04)
(Asus2) Hey, I'm sorry, but I've got something to (G) say.
(Dsus2) Hey, don't you know you're going the wrong (Asus2) way?
Why do you refuse to see they tell you (G) lies?
(Dsus2) I'm asking you, do you really want to (Asus2) die?

So, you think you're pretty sure which way to go
Whoa, I'd say that there's a lot that you don't know
Blind, with your eyes closed there's not much you will find
Do you mind if I tell you how to not be left behind?

(Chorus:) Cause it's (G) time to wake up (D) to the sound
          of (F) changes that are (C) comin' round
          Dis(G)cover what's yet (D) to be found
          while (F) there's still time for (C) you to (G) turn a(Asus2)round
          (C) (Dsus2) turn a(Asus2)round

Say, did you know there's big changes on their way?
May I suggest the best thing you can do is pray?
Boy, you're sure distracted by your fancy toys
annoyed by me telling you they won't bring you joy

Try, put them aside, see how long you'll get by
Untie the chords that bind you to this selfish life
Say, did you know that the Answer's on its way
Be brave & take the hand by which you might be saved

(Chorus)

(Bridge:)
(C) No, that's (G) not the way to (Dsus2) go
There's (C) certain death & (G) danger at the (Dsus2) end of Satan's road
Wake (C) up right now & (G) see the (Dsus2) light
what's (C) wrong is wrong and (G) right is (Dsus2) right
foll(C)ow me up the (G) path of life, let's (Dsus2) go
Yeah, it's time to (Asus2) go

War is on, my friend, & that you can't ignore no more
Now the Prince of Peace is knocking at your door
Live a new life with so much more love to give
Believe and let yourself be no longer deceived

Cause it's (G) time to wake up (D) to the sound
of (F) changes that are (C) comin' round
Dis(G)cover what's yet (D) to be found
while (F) there's still time for (C) you to (G) turn a(Asus2)round
(C) (Dsus2) turn a(Asus2)round

T.W.O.

The truth is, they're telling you lies my friend
The truth is, you wouldn't believe me to what extent
They're making the true heroes look like creeps
What they call "news" is mostly make-belief
While most of us fall in their trap like sheep
but I can show you the way out
I'll show you the way out

The truth is, the world was no accident, it was planned
The truth is, there is a God and He loves you, my friend
While everything else will be blown away
His love and His truth will be here to stay
No matter how badly you've lost your way
cause I can show you the way out
I'll show you the way out

You turn on the TV or pick up the paper and
all that they sell you is lies
But if you look up to the Man on the cross
and believe in Him, you won't ever die

The truth is, He loves you so much that he died for you
The truth is, Jesus alone's gonna see you through
Even if your life looks like a dead end street
He's gonna put you back on your feet
Just take Him and He's gonna set you free
Cause He will show you the way out
He'll show you the way out
He'll show you the way out
He'll show you the way out




                                        211
Under The Wings Of Love
Rise, rise little sparrow, spread your tiny wings
and fly till you touch the sky, so high,
you'll touch the rainbow, you let the wind blow
through your feathers as you fly.
You've got no sorrows, no care for tomorrow,
you've got a place to hide, you're safe
under the shadow, the shining shadow
under the wings of love.
You've got nothing to worry about,
your Father won't let you fall to the ground,
the strongest arms in the universe
have promised you their care.

So, come, come on, tomorrow,
no matter how black your gloom, I'm not scared of you,
for I will cast all my sorrows
onto the shoulders that are gonna see me through,
I'm safe under the shadow, the shining shadow,
under the wings of love.

Oh, the beauty of little things,
He knows the number of every hair,
the strongest arms in the universe
have promised you their care.

So rise, rise little sparrow, spread your tiny wings
and fly till you touch the sky, so high,
you've got no sorrows under the shadow,
under the wings of love.

Waiting for Tomorrow (Dec.13, 2007)

(Intro: C--Am--F--Gs4-G 2x)

(C) Yesterdays have (Am) come and gone, to(F)day is all I (Gs4)have (G)
and yet, the things I see around me, make me rather sad
So (Am) I cling to Your (F) promises of (C) better days a(Gs4)head (G)
If (Am) everything will (F) be the way You (Gs4) said, (G)
I'm waiting for to(C)morrow

(intro)

You promised You would soon return to save us from this mess
And that the world from shore to shore would live in righteousness
If that is true & You'll bring true & lasting happiness
I can't wait for those changes to take place
I can't wait for tomorrow
(intro)
(Chorus:)
All I (Am) have, all I've (F) done, is like (C) ice beneath the (Gs4) sun (G)
I would gladly trade the world for one glimpse of Heaven's Son
You can keep your here & now with all your things that you call fun
But (Dm7) me, I will hold (Am7) out for something (F) better
I'm (Gs4) waiting (G) for to(C)morrow
(intro)
I'm looking forward to the days we won't need planes to fly
And no more dark black clouds of smoke pierce holes into the sky
No politicians, televisions spouting off their lies
A world where all the innocents won't die
I'm waiting for tomorrow

I'm waiting for a time when there'll be no such thing as war
No money, no clichés, but truth and love will tell the score
There won't be any evil people, rotten to the core
We'll all know: Only idiots get bored!
Can't wait for that tomorrow

(Chorus 2x)

(Choir:)
Here in the Kingdom of God's Son true love is all you need
Here in His Kingdom everyone's as happy as can be (3x)

WAKE UP!

(Em) Hey, you're all junkies, hooked to the lie
you better (Cmaj7) wake up before you (As2) die without even having (Em) lived
look (Camj7) up to the sky, your re(As2)demption is nigh
if you are (Em) bold enough to live
(Cmaj7) brave enough to receive the light,
want to be (As2) saved from your deceit & lies
& think it's (Cmaj7) time to open up your eyes
think you should (As2) wake up
& (Em) live

(Em) Maybe the darkness was all of the light you have (Cmaj7) known for all your (As2) lives,
but you've merely been de(Em)ceived
There (Camj7) is such a thing as the (As2) truth and the right thing to (Em) do if you believe
have got the (Cmaj7) courage to receive
the guts to (As2) work on this with me
the urge to (Cmaj7) break out of your trance & sleep,
think you should (Asus2) wake up
and live

(Ch.:)
(As2) Wake up, it's time to stop drifting & (Em) reach out for the top
(As2) Wake up, it's time to start living for (Em) real, not for the mob
(As2) Wake up it's time to know that you can be (Em) healed,
you can be (Cmaj7) freed from the ad(As2)diction to this lie that you have (Em) lived

Ladies & Gentlemen, let me most humbly present the One Who paid the price to set you free
Condemned, executed & tortured to death in a place named Calvary
that was a thing He did for you and me
that was the thing He'd come to do and be
the Savior-Scapegoat of humanity
that we should wake up and live

(Ch. 2x)

Oh, (F#m) praise Him, we (B) are the (E) same

We Haven't Even Yet Begun To Love (Feb 14, 2007)
(Em) Why, sister, (Ds2) do you cry?
Have (C) you not found any(Ds2)one to love you
(Em) right here in (Ds2) paradise, cause (C) you don't look the same? (Ds2)
Why, sister, do you sigh?
Are you too fat, too old too ugly
for those who keep an eye on image and cliché?

(C) When will the truth be(Ds4)gin (the things we've known our lives long)
to really start sinking in (to finally drive the point home)
that we have only loved the One
as much as we have loved the lowest one, the last to come, oh

[Chorus:]

(G) Isn't it a (C) shame hypocri(Ds4)sy
should have found its (C) way into our ranks?
After all, we're claiming to be free
from all the System's stupid, foul pranks
(Em) Don't we claim (C) that we (Ds4) see? (Well, come on, have a look then!)
So, (Oh) brother, could it be
we (C) haven't even yet be(Em)gun to love? (D-C)
We (Ds2) haven't even yet begun to love


Time to see eye to eye & ask ourselves, are we the real thing
putting to practice what we preach
It's easy to fall for lies when we think that we dig the whole thing
that life's got nothing left to teach - us

When will we really live?
There's so much more to give
We only love the One
as much as we will love the lowest one, the least of them, oh,

[Chorus]

When will the truth begin...
... the outcast we consider scum, oh

... We haven't even yet be(G)gun to love (C), oh (D)
We (C) haven't even yet be(G)gun to love (C-D)

Welcome To Babylon                                      May ’92

Fatsack cadillac, drivin’ around
With the hi-fi blastin’ like he owns the town
Sugarbag, someone’s gonna steal your crown if you don’t watch out

Big hunks, tough punks pushin’ you around
Mammoth cash busters just draggin’ me down
I can’t stand no more of that techno sound, I wanna drop out

Dancer prance America the Whore
Romance in vain cause you’ve been there before
You look surprised, “Isn’t there anymore?”
-- Great Confusion!

Black smoke, death choke, oxygen’s gone
Highway plugged up, rush hour’s on
How long must we all still carry on?

(Ch.:)
Welcome to Babylon! Welcome to Babylon!

High priest, sly biest, robbin’ the poor
Bittersweet sermons are your bait and the lure
Just tell me how you can be so hoggone sure you’re on the right track?

59 people living on the same floor
barely ever say Hi to the fellow next door
Tell me who are you goin’ through all this for
I wanna go back

Set pace, rat race, see how they run
“I’m gonna get rich quicker than the other one!
Stepping on people is actually fun!”

(Ch.)

Welcome To The Rhythm                                  Dec.12 1994 by Dave Mendoza
(from the album “Rhythm Of Life”)

As I sit here by this bed in which you’re waiting to be born
So many things in my head, holding on to your sweet mom
Wondering if you’re a boy or a girl, a rough little gem or smooth pearl
Will your hair be straight or curled?
Either way, we’ll always give you all the love in this world

(Chorus:) Welcome to the rhythm, welcome to the tune
          Welcome to this world which you’re about to know so soon
          Welcome to the outside, welcome to the light
          Welcome to the music, welcome to the rhythm of life!

Why am I always so nervous during a delivery?
Although you’re already fifth to be a child in this family
Well, we’ve been waiting so long
Guess I’m not patient or strong
What if the doctors do wrong?
Guess I’ll trust in heaven, might as well just right down this song

(Chorus)

Finally the mystery unfurls
One last push into this world
I don’t breathe, move, talk or stir
Here you come now, baby,
Hallelujah, Mom, it’s a girl!

(Ch.)

(Ch.:)
We’ve come a long way, yeah, come our way home
We’ve come a long way, oh, yes, we’ve come our way home (rep.)

We found the way & there ain’t no other
Come on & step out by faith today, my brother!

We’ve got the truth & there ain’t no more
We’ve got a light, got an open door

Because we’ve... (Ch.)

We got home & here we’ll stay forever
Come no more to roam, no, never
Here we’ll stay for many thousand years
There’ll ne no more pain nor cryin’ nor tears

(Ch.)




                                         219
WHEREVER
(Chorus:)
Wherever You (G) lead, (Am) there I will (C) follow (D)
I’ll be on my (G) knees, (C) waiting for Your (Am) grace (D)
Whatever You (G) feed me, (Am) that I will (C) swallow (D)
All I want is to (G) see the (C) light on Your (Am) face (D)
I will hold my (G) peace, (Am) You take my (C) sorrows!
I will let You (G) speak, my (C) heart is Your (Am) home
My trust in You is com(G)plete, (Am) You’re my tom(C)orrow (D)
You’ll be all I (G) need, I’m (C) never a (Am) lone (D)

(G) You’re enough for (Am) me, though I can’t (C) get enough of (D) You
(G) You‘re the air I (C) breathe, You’re in (Am) everything I (D) do
You’re my (G) beacon, Lord, my (Am) shining light that (C) helps me make it (D) through
my (G) troubled times & (C) darkest night, You’re (Am) more than all I (D) knew

(Ch.)

You are the Sun, I am a tree, Lord, You’re everything to me
You’re the rain, I’m a flower, in You alone, there‘s my power
You’re my Husband, I’m Your wife, You’re what’s keeping me alive
You’re the Bridegroom, I’m Your bride, You’re the wave I’ll ride (Ch.)

Where Grey Skies Won't Go
I grew up in a grey sky town,
lots of people with grey sky frowns,
man, I tell you, they bring you down,
them grey sky blues.

Traveled far to a southern land
where the nights are much longer and
you see smiles in the warm white sand
and the skies are blue.

Now some folks say there's no place like home,
but I'd say depends on where you're born,
'cause I feel just like a southern man
who'd vote for grey skies to be banned.

So take me where the golden sunsets glow,
where the sky is blue and the palm trees grow,
that is where I will call my home,
there where life's still worth living,
where the sun shines and grey skies won't go.

I grew tired of black chimney smoke,
fourtyfive year olds dyin' of stroke,
I said, God must be kiddin', I hope
make those grey skies move.

Man I barely turned seventeen,
I was no longer to be seen
in the land governed by machines
where the grey skies rule.

Now I know some people just don't care
whether they breathe in smoke or air,
but I wanna sleep 'neath a starry sky
where the moonlight lingers in my lover's eyes.

So take me where the golden sunsets glow,
where the sky is blue and the palm trees grow,
that is where I will call my home,
there where life's still worth living,
where the sun shines and grey skies won't go,
where the grey skies won't go,
where the grey skies won't go,
the grey skies won't go, grey skies won't go.

WHO YOU ARE
(capo 4th fret)
(Intro: Am-F-G-Am-G-F 2x)
(Chorus:)
(Am) You don’t have to (F) hate your(G)self (Am) ‘cause I love you the (G) way you (F) are
More than status, power, fame or wealth, in My world you are a star
To really live means to become what I see you already are
Don’t let your heart get hard and numb, come & let Me show you who you are
Who you are

So many you cry because you feel unloved and useless
So many times you wonder why you’re made the way you are
But you don’t have to be ashamed of all those hurts & bruises
You don’t have to hide your scars

(G/a) Let Me show you what I (As2) see when I look at you
Let Me set your trapped mind free and know you’re beautiful
To become what you must be, just accept that all is (C) well
And that includes the way you (E) are, so let it be, love, let it (Am) be

(Chorus)

If I believe in you, can’t you believe Me for you, too?
Believe in that I knew what I did when I chose you

(Chorus)

It’s okay to love yourself, it’s okay to trust in who you are
You don’t have to hate yourself, ‘cause you’re made and loved the way you are
It’s okay to love yourself, come & let Me show you who you are
Who you are
Who you are
Who you are
Who you are

Will You Marry Me
I never thought it would come to this
But you bewitched me with your kiss //: will you marry me? :\\

I swore I’d never say that line
But here I go for the second time: //: will you marry me? :\\

(Chorus:)
      Will you marry me up in the canyon, by the brook?
      Will you marry me beneath the angels` smiling looks?
      Will you marry me & may our witness be the One
      Who makes our love each day as if it’s only just begun

I thought I’d never say these words
I felt were just for fools & nerds, will you marry me?
I’ve been a coward all my life
How come I didn’t run this time, will you ...

(2nd Chorus:)
       Will you marry me beneath the shade of some old tree?
       Will you marry me, the stars, the mountains, you & me
       Will you marry me in that most peculiar style?
       I’ve got this feeling you and me, will stick together for a while

(3rd Chorus:)
       Will you marry me before the dusk turns into day?
       Will you marry me & sing our “I’ll Be On My Way”?
       Will you marry me cause` you don’t care what people say
       Cause I love you & you love me & what else really matters anyway?

Winning Team

I'd vote for you if you would run for president
I'd have you elected as my queen
I'd choose you any day over the government
'cause you're the sweetest boss I've ever seen

(Ch.:)

Cause, Baby, I think you & me, we are a winning team
It's true, you see, you can have the driver's seat
Cause all we need is love and unity and some humility
for us to become a winning team

The same goes for our brothers, sisters, all our friends
who're with us, trying to change the world with love
If we will stick together till the very end
our King will find us joined as one when He'll come from above

Cause brother, I think you... (Chorus)

Wisdom
Tell me, who is She that talks to & soothes the wind & the fire & the rain
Gives me Her comfort & touches me, heals me & eases my every pain
Is She a woman, a spirit, some magic or only a mystical dream ?
I’ve known Her since I was a child, so I know that she must be reality
Oh, I can feel Her, oh, I can breath Her
Oh, & I know I’m not alone on this lonesome road

Once in a vision I thought I had seen just a glimpse of Her smiling at me
The beauty & grace of Her facial expression is something I will always see
Sometimes at night in the stillness I hear Her like whispering into my ears
Wonderful words of Her wisdom that fill me with peace when I know She’s near
Oh, I can hear Her, want to be near Her
Never want Her to let me go

Once in a summer I thought that I heard Her like singin’ a lovely refrain
Of all of the wonders & miracles of life & repeat it again & again
Spirit of freedom & love, Queen of Heaven, oh Mother of all that is life
Oh, for my heart to be filled with Your wisdom, Your truth to enlighten my eyes
Oh, I can see Her, feel & perceive Her in every miracle of life

Woe!

When the (Am) children of Zion (G) dream about the (F) Matrix
(Am) Trading truth & (G) love for the (F) Big Lie & (Em) hatred
Des(Am)pising their own (G) heritage & (F) think it’s rather odd
It’s (Am) hard, (G) hard, (Am)

When the children of David bow down & worship mammon
They stop living the Law of Love, having all things in common
When money is the thing of which they just can’t get enough
It’s tough, tough, tough

(Chorus:)
(F) Lord, forgive us for we’ve strayed & (Am) heal us from our sin
(G) Help us get back on the way for (Am) we’re destined to win
(F) Free us from the bondage of the (Am) Devil and his kin
(G) Help us wipe off from his face that (Em) evil, wicked (E) grin

When the children of the Kingdom go astray and follow Satan
Down the broad way, through the wide gate of those who’ll only betray them
When sheep put on the clothes of wolves, pretending they’re so bad
It’s sad, sad, sad

When the New Church of the Lamb has lost ist purpose & the vision
And the multitudes are still lost in the vale of indecision
Cuase the shepherds have not come to tenderly gather them in
It’s sin, sin sin

(Chorus:)
(F) Lord, forgive us for we’ve strayed & (Am) heal us from our sin
(G) Help us get back on the way for (Am) we’re destined to win
(F) Free us from the bondage of the (Am) Devil and his kin
(G) Help us wipe off from his face that (Em) evil, wicked (E) grin

(Bridge:)
(G) Break us and re-make us and wake (F) us up from our (Am) sleep
(G) For we have to warn the world & (F) find His little (Am) sheep
(G) With the keys of destiny there’s (F) nothing we can’t (Am) do
We’ll (G) rise above and overcome and (E) win the World for You

(Chorus 2x)

         Worthy (2.Samuel 22:2,4,7,33)

The (A) LORD (E) is my (D) rock, and my (C#m) fortress, (D) and my de(E)liverer
God is my strength and power: and He maketh my way perfect.

(Chorus:)

(D) I will call on the (E)LORD,
Who is worthy to be praised:
so shall I be saved
from mine enemies.

In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God:
and He did hear my voice out of His temple, and my cry did enter into His ears.

(Ch.)

Who is worthy to be praised (2x)
Thou art worthy to be praised
You are worthy to be praised

Yearn for You (April 08)

Every day has a new riddle for me
Like crawling through a fog on hands and knees
Question marks in the dark
Where's the spark that will just
shine enough light on the shadowy path before me?

There are many things I just can't see
unless You reveal them to me
I've no clue where to go, what to do
unless You show me & lead me & guide me
Oh, Jesus,

(Chorus:)
I yearn for You
I'm burning to learn so much more from You
Teach me, Lord, let Your Word
make my world more like Yours
Open my eyes and my heart, Lord
and teach me to see

I want to be so much more like You, Jesus
Change my heart, give me a new start,
a new part to play in this mystery called life
Jesus, show me the way!

Every day brings a new challenge to me
like a new prison from which to break free
Whispers and voices surrounding me
pointing in different directions in my quest & search for the key

(mod.)

There are many things I just can't see
unless You reveal them to me
I've no clue where to go, what to do
unless You show me & lead me & guide me
Oh, Jesus,

(Chorus)

Put the right words on my lips to say
Be my way, make my day fill every moment
with Your light, Your love & Your presence
Oh, Jesus,

(Chorus)




                                                     228
You (Living God)
Oh You are my sunshine, you are my life
Oh, You give me comfort from all my strife
You enlighten my hours, both, day & night
You’ve wiped away all of those tears from my eyes
-- You are a rainbow, you made the flowers, you made the butterflies
You are my Angel, You are my Lover, Your Spirit takes me so high
You set me on fire, You gave me light
You encouraged my heart in the deepest night
Oh, You show all the wonders of life to me
You shared all the secrets of life with me
-- You taught me the dance & You taught me to sing
You taught me to love & to give
You taught me to cheer up a broken man’s heart
You’re the first One who taught me to live
Oh, You make me happy You make me sing
You fill up my heart like a deep blue spring
Oh, You are the meaning of life to me
& now, rise up again & make love to me
-- Over the hills and over the trees, over the mountains so high
Over the rivers and over the waters on wings of the spirit we fly, high
(1st verse)
Oh, Jesus, the Son of the Living God,
Praise be unto Your name, oh, Living God!




                                                    229
You’re It
Yeah, I've been told before,
"There's nothing worth searchin' for,
There’s no reason to believe
In things that you cannot see."
But when I look up to the stars,
Amazed at the myst'ry that we are
And the beauty that I feel,
        Op.1: That's all the reason I need.
        Op.2: I'm so convinced You are real.
        Op.3: My heart sings out, "You are real!"

Chorus 1
Jesus, You're the One I need,
You're the One I've been looking for.
You see, I couldn’t find an open door,
And I heard that You’ve got the keys.
Jesus, You're the One I want
To take me to Your fancy restaurant
Up in the Place they call heavenly.
Would you keep a table for me?
Jesus, You're the One I need.

Verse 2
With not a place to go,
Many things I still don't know.
Barely see the road in front of me,
There's too much fog there to see.
Come and shine Your light
Into my heart & set things right,
Make me part of Your family;
So glad that You've rescued me.

(Repeat Chorus 1)

Bridge
Let them have their loud, empty places,
Filled with meaningless faces.
I still know that my place is
Somewhere higher than that.
Let them keep their nasty illusions,
Their brains stuffed with confusion.
There’s one simple solution,
And I'll just leave it at that:

Chorus 2
Jesus is the One you need,
He's the One you've been looking for.
You see, you couldn't find an open door,
But I tell ya, He's got the keys.
Yeah, He's the One you want
To take you to His fancy restaurant
Up in the Place beyond the blue,
He's got a table for you.
Jesus is the One you need,

YOU’RE THE AIR THAT I BREATHE
(C9) Lord, You're so gracious to (Em/G) me, You are all I can (F/G) see
made me more than I (Gsus4) ever asked to be
Lord, You're all that I am, You do all that I can't
You're the beginning & end of my story

(C9) You're in all I (Am7) do, I'm nothing without (F/G) You
I'm just a helpless (Gsus4) fool without Your love
You're my Destiny, Yours I'm meant to be
You're the air that I breathe, Jesus, You're better than a dream

You're life's purpose to (Em/G) me, I am totally free
being tied to You's all I want to be
I'm perplexed by Your ways, You turned my night into day
took my burden away, You rescued me

For eterni(Am7) ty, Yours I'm meant to be
I was blind, now I see Your majesty
Without You life was pain, now I'm born again
You're the air that I breathe, Jesus, You're better than a dream

(Br.:) (Am7) Though Life still ain't (Em) perfect & there may be (Fmaj7) battles at
every (C) turn
 I now know what I'm fighting for & with (G) You there's nothing I can't learn

(First verse)

You Shed Light Into My Heart (Thanks to You)

Could I forget, would it be fair to let it slip my mind,
all the things that you & I have gone through?
There's no regret, nor can I fail ever to mention thank you
for the way that you have made my life true

Thanks to you I love this life
Thanks to you I found my part
Thanks to you I found my way
You shed light into my heart

Now I walk, my head held high, ever facing towards the Son
Share with me the love of life, feel forever just begun




                                         232
You Won't Ever Be The Same

I had such a very broken heart,
everything I dreamed fell apart couldn't find another start, oh no
I, deep down inside was so alone, in spite of all the things owned
kept on looking for a way back home

Then I still clearly remember the day
when the Son came into my life
set me free from care & strife, turned my darkness to light
and chased the dark clouds all away

Now I won't ever be the same again
my heart cracked open & love came
Now want to tell the World & sing
That all life’s reason is in loving Him

Now you, I turn around & look at you
because you're seeming just as blue as me before I was born anew
You see, this love, isn't just for me
but it can also set you free & lift your life into the heavenlies
So why, why don't you Just give it a try?
You hear him knocking at your heart
He'll give your life another start, although you're torn apart
And a love that will never die

And you won't ever be the same again
If you just open up & let Him in
Then you'll want to tell the World & sing
 that all life's reason is in loving Him

Bin ich jetzt ein Terrorist?

Bin ich (Am) jetzt ein Terrorist weil ich für eure Riesentraumf (G)brik einfach zu (F) wach bin?
Weil ich den (G) Mist den ihr uns eintrichtern wollt nicht schluck‘, sondern sag‘, „So’n (Am) Schwachsinn!“?
Steh‘ ich jetzt auf eurer schwarzen Liste weil ich sag‘ „Schröder, verpiss‘ dich!“
und ich dem (G) ganzen Schrott-System meinen Mittelfinger (Dm) zeig‘?

Werd‘ ich jetzt von euch geächtet weil ich mein gutes Recht verfechte zu tun & (F) lassen und zu glauben
was ich (G)schlicht und einfach tun, lassen, glauben (Am)mag?
Seid ihr jetzt gar sehr empört weil es mich ganz heftig stört
dass ihr uns be(G)täubt, belügt & aussaugt; von früh bis (F) spät bespitzelt, ausraubt, versucht uns (G) in den Schlaf
zu wiegen,
 den letzten Freiheitsdrang besiegen, benutzt wie eine wegwerf(E)bare Batte(Am)rie?

Würdet ihr (Am) mich jetzt gern zerquetschen, eliminieren und zerfetzen, die nackte (G)Wahrheit ausradier’n?
Ich sag‘ euch (Dm)gleich, das schafft ihr nie! Für jeden von uns den ihr töten werdet verliert ihr tausend eurer
Herde
dein Hass bringt (F) dich unter die Erde, du großer (G)Sonnengott, ich prophezei‘ dir deinen (Am) Fall
Du kamst her(Dm)ab, du Stern des Morgens, wolltest dir die (F)Welt mal eben borgen
 „Wer braucht den (G) Himmel wenn man (E) Hölle haben(Am) kann?“

Bin ich (Am) jetzt ein Terrorist weil ich schrei, „Be(G)zahlt die GE(F)Z nicht!“
Bezahlst du deinen (G)Nachbarn etwa auch dafür dass sein Hund in deinen Garten kacken (Am)darf?
Meine (Dm) Ohren sind Geschwülste, wund und taub von dem Gesülze mit dem ihr (G) uns tagein tagaus schier
bombar(Am)diert
Werd‘ ich jetzt auf das Schafott kommen weil ich sag‘ „Boykottiert die T-kom!“ oder (F) „Banker steht für
‚Wanker‘“
 „Poli-(G)ticker sind Ar...f.cker!“ „Herr Pro (F)fessor, Sie sind im Irrtum!“ „Herr Dok(G)tor, Sie sind Quacksalber!
Schluck‘ deine Medizin doch selber oder amputiert euch doch mal selbst das falsche (Am)Bein!“?

Ihr habt Den (Dm)jenigen verachtet Der euch den (F)Sinn des Lebens brachte, wolltet Ihn in (G)eine Schachtel
stecken
in ein Haus mit (Dm)vielen bunten Ecken mit Orgelsound am Sonntag (G)Morgen und Glocken (Am)klang
So wahr Er (F)auferstanden ist, ich bin wie (Dm) Er kein Terrorist, zumindest (G) einer der mit (E)
Spielzeugwaffen (Am) kämpft

Sein Wort ist meine Munition. Sag‘ jetzt nicht (G) gleich, „Ach, kenn‘ ich schon (F)!“
Denn du weisst (G) nichts und das was du zu wissen glaubst hat man dir nur einver(Am)leibt
Und wenn du (Dm)denkst ich bin voll panne und hab‘ wohl einen an der Kanne dann pass‘ mal
 (G) schön auf was noch bald vor uns ge(Am)schieht:
Wieviel Eier kannst du kochen, wieviele (F)Tage oder Wochen wirst du über(G)leben wenn man
(E) dir den Stecker (Am) zieht?
Wenn jeder (Dm)Laden an der Ecke ganz einfach zu ist, Mann, verrecke!
Die Welt ist (G) eh‘ überbevölkert – oder (Am) nicht?
Man muss die (G) Massen dezimieren und das Gesindel eliminieren. Gestern die (F) Juden,
morgen die Christen und alle ander’n „Terroristen“
und dann, was dann? Wie fein und, ach, wie toll wird’s (Am) sein:
Dann läuten (Dm) wir die neue Ära des großen (F)Führers aller Heere,
die langer(G)sehnte, wunderschöne neue (E)Weltordnung – ganz ohne Bargeld – ein.

Der Feind

Der Krieg um eure Seelen der vor langer Zeit begann
kommt langsam zum Finale das das Gute längst gewann
Der Feind hockt direkt vor euch auf einem schönen Tisch
ein Schrein in eurem Heiligtum – doch ihr erkennt ihn nicht

Er stiehlt euch eure Kinder, er stiehlt euch eure Zeit
er stiehlt euch eure Meinung, macht sich in euren Köpfen breit
Er sagt euch wie ihr sein müsst um cool und „in“ zu sein
und nistet sich in jeder kleinsten Faser eures Wesens ein

Er definiert euch neu die Wahrheit, Ethik, Moral, und zwar genau
und wer von dieser Gerade abweicht, der wird schon seh’n, das war nicht
schlau

Diktiert Gedanken und Gefühle, eure Gewohnheiten auch
denn er weiss alles was ihr jemals wolltet (oder etwa nicht?) und braucht

Er zeigt dir endlos schöne Bilder & singt dich täglich in den Schlaf
Bestimmt wann du Adrenalin brauchts & lachen oder weinen darfst

Er raubt euch eure Energien, ihr Geiseln eurer eig’nen Couch
Wann schnippt er wohl mit seinem Finger: „Es ist vorbei. Wacht auf!“?

Er ist kein Mensch und doch ganz viele, und hat doch nich ein Herz gehabt
er ist ein Ding, eine Maschine: euer heissgeliebter Fernsehapparat

Wenn dir das Wörtchen „Freiheit“ lieb ist, dann geb‘ ich dir den guten Rat:
Lass‘ dich nicht länger mehr versklaven, steh‘ auf und geh‘, schreite zur Tat
Und hol‘ die Axt aus deinem Keller, zieh‘ ihm den Stecker ‘raus und, Mann,
dann hau‘ das Ding in tausend Stücke & fang‘ ein neues Leben an!

ich (Bs2) kann ihn einfach nicht igno(A)rier'n, den Schmerz der (E) ander'n


Abends Sekt & kaltes Buffet, "die Jacke sieht teuer aus"
Doch während ich mire diese Leute anseh' geht mir langsam der Ofen aus
Ich kann ihn einfach nicht ignorier'n...

(Ref.:) Den Schmerz all (F#m) derer die's ver(A)sucht haben, und nicht ge(E)schafft

 das einen (F#m) Unterschied (E) macht?"


Die Trommelfelle tun mir noch weh von der Musik und dem netten Applaus
Doch spätestens um viertel vor vier geh ich allein nach haus
Ich denk' darüber nach was wohl geschieht, meine Gedanken wandern
Ich kann ihn einfach nicht ignorier'n...

(Ref. &) Derer die suchen und immer nocht nichts gefunden haben
        den Schmerz der Verlierer, während wir uns am Siegestrunk laben

 Du bist ja überhaupt nicht so cool

Und jetzt, jetzt sitzt du vor mir und weinst
Weil draussen keine Sonne für dich mehr scheint
Du bist ja ...
Jeden Morgen in der Schule, was habt ihr gepafft, Mann
Und kam ein Pauker daher gerannt nanntest du ihn `nen Blödmann
Und jetzt hast du null Ahnung wohin
Das Leben hat für dich keinen Sinn Du bist ja ... (Bridge:)
Einst dachtest du die ganze Welt gehörte dir
Jetzt fragst du dich nur ständig, he was soll ich hier

Glauben heisst Sehen

Ich dachte immer schwach ist schwach und stark ist stark
doch heut' hab' ich gelernt, nee, das war alles Quark
Gegebenheiten sind nämlich bedeutungslos
denn Gott macht große Leute klein und kleine groß

Drum, kehrt mein Schiff auch mit gebroch'nen Masten heim
so werd' ich nicht verzagen sondern Ihm vertrau'n
Denn nichts scheint wie es ist und nichts ist wie es scheint
Unter der Oberfläche kann es oft ganz anders sein

Denn Glauben heisst seh'n, wenn auch ganz anders
nämlich mit Augen die das Unsichtbare seh'n
Hör' auf zu verstehen um zu glauben
sondern glaube um am Ende zu versteh'n

Da ist ein Weg der scheint den Menschen recht zu sein
Jedoch am Ende fliegt er in die Patsche rein
Bevor du springst guck lieber vorher noch mal hin
und denk' dran dass bei Gott die Dinge anders sind

Danke Jesus, dass Du stets gewinnst
Du findest uns auch wenn wir schier verloren sind
Werden wir auch verfolgt, verspottet, ausgelacht
Du bist und bleibst Der der aus allem Gutes macht

(Ref.)

Herrenrasse?

Und das ist also die Herrenrasse
„Ein Snickers, und zwar JETZT!“
- Gott wie ich sie hasse
Der Trendschmied der mich rügt
wenn ich den Juden in mir
zu sehr raushängen lasse
Der Besoff`ne der mit glasigem Blick drauf wartet
dass ich Ihm sein nächstes Bier verpasse.
Herrenrasse? Dass ich nicht lache.

Wenn ihr die Welt beherrschen wollt, dann steckt mich lieber in’s KZ!
Erschießt oder vergast mich, macht aus mir `ne Lampe für neben’s Bett!

Das ist sie nun: die Herrenrasse
ne Horde wilder Säufer, ungelehrt & arrogant.
Ein Heer ..., ach was, `ne blinde Meute: stur & extrem intolerant
„Wir sind nicht stolz auf was wir war` n,
doch wir sind stolz auf was wir sind“
Nun, wartet’s ab; in ein paar Jahren:
Der nächste Führer kommt bestimmt (4x)

           Hier komm’ ich          (So viel zu tun)

Hörst du es nicht? Die Stimme vor deiner Tür
kündigt Veränderungen an
Ein Herold des Lichts der den Weg weisen will
doch Gehör schenkt ihm nur wer dann & wann
Zu viel zu tun, wir sind viel zu beschäftigt
Damit unsre Sandburg zu bau`n
Und unseren Nachbarn aus Neid & aus Habgier
Das einzige Schäfchen zu klau`n

(Chorus:) So viel zu tun ich hab` sooo viel zu tun:
Denn schließlich soll das ja auch gut ausgeh`n
Wenn ich geh`in die ewige Ruh`
So viel zu tun, ich hab` sooo viel zu tun
Mach` Platz, Mensch, es geht hier um Eindruck
Der Verlierer bist ja schließlich wohl du –
Jedenfalls nicht ich, denn wo ich hingeh`
Da gibt es so was wie schwach schon mal nicht
Keine Zeit für Loser, Weichei – Schmuser
Fahr schon `rüber – aus dem Weg!
//: Hier komm` ich Hier komm` ich ://

Siehst du es nicht? Das Licht vor deiner Tür
Kündigt Veränderungen an
Ein Tunnel der dich zu dem Ort führt
Von dem du nie mehr zurückkehren kannst
All` diese Jahre hast du niemals geglaubt
Dass es sowas wirklich geben kann
Doch die sind dahin, so wie Staub mit dem Wind
Obwohl ihr Echo dich jetzt übermannt:

(Chorus)

Ich bin (C) arm wie eine (G)Kirchenmaus und (Am) seh‘ auch nicht wie (Em)Rambo aus

Ich wohn‘ in einem schiefen Haus, oft geht mir fast der Diesel aus
doch all‘ das macht mir gar nichts aus, ich bin glücklich


Ich bin (Am) glücklich und zu(Em)frieden, denn ich (F) lerne gerad‘ zu (C) lieben
und zu (F) lieben, meine (C) Lieben: das ist (Dm) das worum’s hier (G) geht
Ich bin dankbar für mein Leben, hab‘ ich auch nicht viel zu geben

ausser einem kleinen Lächeln, Gottes (Dm)Wort und diesem Lied
(C- G – Am –Em – F – C – Dm – G)

Ich bin Vater von 6 Kindern, das bedeutet „schwer behindert“
in einem Land in dem man Kinder kriegen als Missgeschick ansieht
Ich wollt‘ immer cool und smart sein, hab‘ gelernt dass wirklich stark sein
ist sich seine Schwächen einzugestehen, mich zu nehmen wie ich bin

(Ref.)

(Am) Hörst du dort in (B/G) jedem Ort,
der (C) Pfeifer lockt die (Dm) Kinder fort
Er pfeift die schönsten Melodien von Barbies und was anzuzieh’n
Das Auto da, das muss ich hab’n, wow! Playstation! Ey guck’mal da...
Doch ich sag‘ nur, „Nee, brauch‘ ich nicht, ich hab‘ doch dich,
und du hast (G4) mich

(Ref.)


... ich bin glücklich & zufrieden denn ich lerne wie man liebt

Ich hätte nie gedacht dass mir so was passiert Als hätt‘ mich das Schicksal mal wieder schön
angeschmiert


Du bist meine Heldin, die Heldin des Tages Zeig‘ mir dein Geheimnis, erzähl‘ mir’s, verrat‘ es

Du bist die Antwort auf all‘ meine Fragen die mich daran hindert vollends zu versagen

Wer hat die Geduld wenn deine Welt auf dem Kopf steht?

Wer hat die Vernunft und die Weisheit gepachtet, wer der das Mensch sein mit seinen Schwächen
verachtet?

Du hast mir Reichtum durch deine Armut gebracht Hast mich immer geliebt, hast alles
mitgemacht


Ich hab‘ alles velor’n beim Versuch zu versteh’n und alles gefunden, denn Glauben ist sehen

Ich sitz‘ hier am Boden, mutterseelenallein, wer kann sich’s schon leisten verliebt zu sein

Was ist so verkehrt dran, verliebt zu sein? Was ist schon dabei Mann...? Es ist schon in Ordnung
veliebt zu sein

Ich rufe dich

Wir sind erneut versammelt hier, die 99 Treu'n
wir singen Lobgesänge und, ach, alles ist so fein
Wir glauben wir haben's geschafft, so sicher hier im Stall
Doch wo ging nur der Meister hin? Es ist doch heut' so kalt.

Ich weiß, wir diskutieren gern, manchmal tagein tagaus
und legen uns dabei die Wahrheit oft von neuem aus
Doch währenddessen, irgendwo dort in der dunklen Nacht
irrt jemand der zu uns gehört, der Gott noch nicht gefunden hat

Drum lasst uns uns zusammentun und aufhör'n mit dem Streit
und Jesus helfen, ihn zu finden; ich höre wie Er weint:

(Ref.:)
Ich rufe dich, ja dich dort draussen in der Dunkelheit
Ich werde geh'n um dich zu finden, ganz egal wie weit
Ich rufe dich, ja dich, der du umher irrst in der Nacht
und wenn du Meine Stimme hörst, dan folg' ihr bis der Morgen lacht
Ich weiss dass du dort draussen bist, verloren und allein
Doch wenn du Meiner Stimme folgst, dann find' Ich dich bestimmt
und führ' dich heim

Drum sing' ich dieses Lied für euch, die ihr dort draussen seid
Du weisst vielleicht nicht wo du hingehörst, doch mit der Zeit
wirst du die Stimme Gottes auch in deinem Herzen hör'n
und wenn du Seine Stimme hörst und ihr gehorchst, o kleines Lamm,
ich weiss genau: Er findet dich bestimmt und führt dich heim

(Ref.)

Halt’ meine Hánd, ich weiss Du bist ímmer für mich dá
Lass’ sie doch lachen – ist mir doch schnurz egal
All’ Deine Wunder sind mir einfach zu real

Als dass (Em) ich sie igno(D)rieren könnte,

so (G) tun als wär’ doch (D) alles sonnen(C)klar

          Doch Ich bin da, is’ doch sonnenklar, Mensch, denk’ mal,
          dafür gab’ Ich dir dein Hirn!”

Hey, danke, Jésus! Jetzt seh ich schon viel mehr. Hab ‘ne Weile gebraucht, doch war alles nicht so
schwer
Ich nehme an auf Glauben kommt es an,
wenn man dánach trachtet zú versteh’n, muss man es mánchmal einfach ánders angeh’n

Du tust die Dinge auf and’re Art als wir es würden, find’ ich stark
obwohl ich manchmal nur “Bahnhof” versteh’
Dein Geld liegt auf ‘ner and’ren Bank als unser Konto, na, Gott sei Dank!
Ich hoffe núr, Du fängst uns áuf wenn wir baden geh’n

D’rum komm’ und zeig’ mir Dein Gesicht, ich will es seh’n, das gold’ne Licht
das Dich umgab, beim Wiederaufersteh’n
Komm’, zeig’ uns was Du wirklich kannst, wie du íhnen aud der Náse ‘rumtanzt,
Lass’ mich Dich hör’n, auch wenn ich Dich nicht seh’:

(Ref.) (2. Zeile:) “Ich bin in jedem Grashalm, jedem Strauch und jedem Tier”
(wiederh.:)         “... definier’n. Gewinner wird nur wer bereit ist alles zu verlier’n...”

Ihr könnt Mich sehen, ihr könnt Mich hören, ihr müsst nur alle richtig hinhör’n
Ihr könnt mich fühlen, könnt Mich spüren, Mensch, ich steh’ vor deiner Tür
Ihr könnt Mich annehmen, könnt Mich fassen, könnt Mich lieben oder hassen
Könnt mit Mir fliegen, mit Mir lachen, mit Mir könnt ihr fast alles machen
Könnt Mich gewinnen, nie verlieren, nur eins nicht: ihr könnt Mich nicht ignorieren!

(Ihr könnt Mich, ihr könnt Mich,) ihr könnt Mich nicht ignorieren...
                                  Wann werdet ihr’s endlich kapier’n?

(Am7) Ganz gewiss nicht (D) ich

Selbst die Meister der Physik haben die Antwort nicht
Das große Paradox des Seins lacht ihnen in’s Gesicht

(Ref.:) Aber (C) ich weiß (G) etwas, tja, das (C) wissen die (G) nicht
Ich (C) sehe was was (B/G) ihr nicht seht
Weil’s (Am7) halt unsichtbar (D) ist
Und ich kenn’ Jemand, tja, den kennen die nicht
Der hat des Rätsels Lösung, die verstehen nur die Kinder des Lichts

Wer von euch der größte sein will, sei aller Knecht
Es geht darum was richtig ist und nicht drum wer hat recht
Je mehr ich weiß, so klarer wird: ich weiß eigentlich nichts
Die Früchte all der Neunmalklugen sprechen klar für sich

(Ref.)
(Wiederh. 1, Hälfte +)
Glaubt ihr auch ich sei vielleicht etwas geblendet vom Licht
Ich weiß etwas das nur versteht wer weiß dass er nichts ist
Und ich hör’ etwas, das vernehmen sie nicht:
Die Stimme des Erfinders des Spiels „Alles aus Nichts“

Und du kannst Ihn genauso kennen lernen wie ich
Er (C) steht an deiner (B/G) Tür und klopft
„Komm’ (C) rein“ ist was Er (B/G) Sich erhofft
Er (C) ruft und fleht, e(B/G)gal wie oft
Bis (C) du die Türe (B/G) öffnest und ein (Am7) Teil wirst
Von den (Ds4) Kindern des (C) Lichts (G)

Kinder des Lichts...

 Kurz vor Mitternacht in Deutschland
Es wird Mitternacht in Deutschland
Ich pinkel mich fast voll vor Angst
Mann, was da abgeht, schon in der Glotze
Das macht den stärksten Mann doch krank
Die wollen Blut seh’n, dir Dinger andreh’n
Die du dir eh nicht leisten kannst
Kurz vor Mitternacht in Deutschland
He, Alter, renn’ so lang du kannst

Und die Blutsauger von der Sparkasse
Die rauben dir den letzten Saft
Schwätzen dir irgendwelche Kredite auf
Für die du Jahre schuften kannst

Und die Psychopaten an der Grenze
Die brüllen, „zeigt uns eure Schwänze!
Und wenn ihr irgendwas zu kiffen habt
Dann stell’ n wir euch gleich an die Wand“

Ja, aber abends in der ‚Alten Post‘
Da geht der Bär erst richtig ab
Da wird gesoffen bis zur Ohnmacht
So kommt ein Zollmann erst auf Trab
Kurz vor ... (Chorus)

Als ob das alles nicht schon genug wär
Komm’n da noch 7 Skinheads rein
Einer sagt ihm gefällt dein Gesicht nicht
& haut dir kurz mal eine rein
Mich packt die Panik ‚sag‘ , „Danke, Gerhard!
Hauptsache du kannst dich noch freu’n“
Kurz vor Mitternacht in Deutschland
Da kannst du einiges bereu `n

Und dann die Leute unten im ‚Snakepit‘
Ja, die war’n auch schon besser drauf
Es läuft ne Session, die Jungs spiel’n scheiße
Und so ist spärlich der Applaus
Spät nach Mitternacht in Deutschland
Millonen Meilen von zuhaus’
Spät nach Mitternacht in Deutschland Wie find` ich meinen Weg nach Haus` ?
Spät nach Mitternacht in Deutschland mit Glück kommst du hier lebend raus
Spät nach Mitternacht in Deutschland Millionen Meilen von zuhaus`

Lass‘ sie geh’n

Manche Gefühle kann kein Mensch verstehen

Manche Gedanken kennt eh‘ nur der Wind

Es gibt Gefahren die kann man erst sehen

wenn man schon hinter dem Scheitelpunkt steht

an dem’s kein Zurück mehr, nur noch Vorwärts gibt, lass‘ sie geh’n


Für manche Probleme gibt’s nur dan eine Lösung

wenn du auch bereit bist die Lösung zu seh’n

Erkennst du die Handschrift des Guten im Bösen?

Dann siehst du das nichts aus dem Zufall entsteht

Und dass es immer irgendwie weitergeht, lass‘ sie geh’n


Lass‘ sie geh’n ihren eig’nen Weg zu finden

Lass sie geh’n ganz gleich auch wie weit

Was nützt es dir schon sie an dich festzubinden?

Dein größter Freund ist die Zeit


Die Jahre vergeh’n, du wirst älter und weiser

Fragen werden durch Antworten ersetzt

Du bist klüger geworden, und auch etwas leiser

Denn schließlich hast du die Geheimschrift entdeckt

die in jeder einzelnen Begebenheit steckt

selbst in dem Schmerz der jetzt weit zurück liegt

im Hall der Entscheidung der niemals versiegt, „lass‘ sie geh’n“


(Ch. +) ... der sie in deine Arme zurücktreibt

         allerspätestens in der Ewigkeit




                                                      249
Nur das Licht

Nur das Licht deiner Augen, deiner Augen will ich seh`n
Nur das Licht, denn du bist wunderschön
Nur das Licht, das Licht deiner Hände will ich fühl`n
Das Licht, denn du bist wunderschön
Nur das Licht, das Licht deiner Stimme will ich hör`n
Du bist Licht denn du bist wunderschön
Bleib’ mir niemals nur einen Augenblick verborgen
Nur einen Augenblick verborgen, mein Licht (2x)
Fühlst du die Macht? Flieg’ durch die Nacht ...
Nur das Licht ...
Nur das Licht, das Licht deiner Wunden soll mich heilen
Dein Gesicht aus Licht will ich berühr’n




Nur die Liebe

Nun aber bleiben Liebe, Glaube, Hoffnung, diese drei

Doch die Liebe ist die größte unter ihnen

Geld und Reichtum kann ich dir nicht geben

Aber was ich hab’, das geb’ ich Dir: mein ganzes Leben


(Ref.:) Nur die Liebe, nur die Liebe

Nur die Liebe, mehr hab’ ich dir nicht zu geben

Nur für Liebe, nur für Liebe

Nur für Liebe ganz alleine will ich leben


Größere Liebe die hat keiner
als dass ein Mensch sein Leben lässst für seine Freunde
Was willst du mit Autos? Was willst du mit Geld?
Ich nehm’ lieber Liebe, sie ist die größte Macht der Welt

(Ref.)




                                                 250
Rette mich

Herr, rette meine Seele vor dem
der macht dass ich mein Ziel verfehle
& macht dass ich Dein Licht nicht mehr klar sehe
O Herr, bitte rette mich vor mir selbst

Herr, rette meine Seele vor dem
der nicht lässt dass ich Dich verstehe
und mich nicht Deine Wahrheit sehen lässt,
O Herr, rette mich vor mir selbst

(Ref.:)
Herr, rette meine Seele vor dem
der mich dazu bringt mich zu quälen
& denkt dass jeder sein eigenes Glück stehlen muss
Herr, bitte rette mich vor mir selbst

Herr, führ' mich zu der Stelle von der aus
ich Dein großes Bild erkennen kann
und leite mich hin zu der großen Quelle
all dessen das größer ist als ich selbst


Herr, lass' mich helfen jenen
die lernen wollen ander'n zu vergeben
und jenen die nicht nur ständig danach streben
Götzen zu machen aus sich selbst

Herr, gib' uns Deinen Segen,
gib' uns Kraft Dinge für Dich zu bewegen
und Macht in Liebe miteinander zu leben
O Herr, und nicht nur jeder für sich selbst

(Ref. 2x)

Return To Paradise (Zurück in’s Paradies)

Wenn du es wirklich suchst zu verstehen
Und lernst mit geschloss’nen Augen zu seh’n
Den Weg nicht nur wissen, sondern zu geh’n
Dann hast du’s geschnallt, das große Gescheh’n

Wenn’s dir egal is, ob du gewinnst
Oder verlierst & trotzdem weiter grinst
Und d’rauf pfeifst wenn jeder schreit „du spinnst“
Dann hast du’s gerafft, das Spiel & den Sinn

Wenn du erst in Fahrt kommst wenn gar nichts mehr geht
Jedes Hindernis weg lachst das dir im Weg steht
Dann hast du gemerkt woher der Wind weht
& wie rum sich der Kreis des Lebens dreht

(Ref.:) Geh’ mit mir, flieg’ mit mir zurück in’s Paradies

Und wenn du allein bist und weisst du bist nicht allein
Weil sich um dich ein ganzes Heer vereint
Dann ist dein „Ja“ stärker als 10.000 „Nein“
& du hast ihn besiegt, den letzten Feind

Und wenn sich dann das Tor des Lebens schließt
& du statt dem Ende den Anfang siehst
& du es verlässt, das dunkle Verließ
dann bist du zurück im Paradies

(Ref.)




                                              252
     Sag’ mir wo die Liebe ist ...

... ich hab sie nämlich schwer vermisst
Einst hast du mich so geküsst
als wär’s für dich das größte Glück
Doch dann kam der Feind, die Zeit
und stahl uns’re Glückseligkeit

Sag mir wo ...

Ich werd’ hier noch total verrückt
denn alles schreit nur " Geld ist Glück"
Wo sind nur die Tage hin als wir noch
suchten einen Sinn
Bruder, Schwester, bin ich tot?
Sonst helft mir doch in meiner Not
Und sagt mir ...




                                           253
           Schieb’ Liebe in dein Herz
Raff´ dich mal auf & schieb` Liebe in dein Herz
Wach endlich auf und schieb Liebe (You gotta shove the love)
Das beste Input für den Durchblick
Die love-mega-power-zip disc (Ch. Var.:)
Mach dich mal auf ...
Das Zeug ist nämlich echt nicht ohne
Das Chappi für meine Kanone (Chorus x2) (rap:)
Love, the power that does unite
The hearts of both, this, & the other side
If you think that you can, like some do, do without
Tell you man, you are in for a mighty shout
Love alone is the thang that it`s all about
Like milk with cookies `stead of brussel sprouts
S` shove it in, turn it on, spread it all around
Open up, shove the love & then give it out
C`mon, open up & shove love into your heart
Come on, wake up you gotta shove the love `til all get enough
     (2x + Chorus x2, whistle)




                                                  254
              Schon immer
Du bist die schönste Blume in meinem Garten
Auf dich hab’ ich schon so schrecklich lang gewartet
Du bist der Regenbogen an meinem Himmel
Ohne dich wär’ meine Seele schon längst verschimmelt
(Chorus:) Denn du bist stark, du bist real
        Du bist immer für mich da
        Du hältst mich fest, ich bin nicht allein
        Ich glaub` nichts könnt’ besser sein als deine Liebe
Du bist die Kirsche auf meiner Geburtstagstorte
Ich glaub’ es gibt echt nur eine von deiner Sorte
Mensch, wo bist du nur dermaßen lang geblieben?
Wie konnt’ ich einst leben ohne dich zu lieben?
(2.Chorus:) Doch ich kann dich seh’n wie du vor mir stehst
                Du lässt mich nie alleine geh’n
                Du fängst mich auf, du bist mein Zuhaus’
                Mit dir kann ich alles klarer seh’n
                Ich glaub’ ich schwebe
Das Leben liegt vor mir wie eine Riesenwelle
Komm’ wir zieh’n uns aus und spring` n rein
Halt so, auf die Schnelle
„Ich hab` keine Lust“ ist ein Satz den ich von dir nicht kenne
du bist genau so süß wie die Prinzessin aus Krieg der Sterne
     (Chorus 1 + 2 ...)... hurra, ich lebe
   (1. Zeile)
Du bist das allerschönste Bild in meinem Zimmer
Ich glaube, geliebt hab’ ich dich eigentlich schon immer
        ... schon immer (3x)




                                                    255
         See You Later    (Irgendwo & irgendwann)

Wo du stehst das weiß ich nicht
Vielleicht verrät` s mir dein Gesicht
Wenn du dich nicht schon wieder versteckst
Komm’ tu was Gutes & lauf` nicht wieder weg
Wo du hin willst weißt du selber nicht
Ist ja auch egal, Hauptsache schön & reich
Nun, hässlich bist du nicht, das weißt du ganz genau
Doch das Wort reich ersetz’ ich ganz gewiss niemals mit schlau

(Chorus:) Hör’ mir zu was ich dir sagen muss:
Mit der Show die du hier abziehst ist jetzt endgültig schluss.
Kein kleiner Finger mehr, um den man mich noch wickeln kann.
Ich seh` dich später irgendwo & irgendwann
Wie du schläfst, das weiß ich nicht, nun ich nehme an
Nicht halb so schlecht wie ich
Es sei denn du träumst ganz rein zufällig auch
Von Godzilla & King Kong im Megadrogenrausch.

Sei unser Mann

(Dm) Sie haben Dich fertig ge(C)macht
(Am) doch Du hast weiter ge(F)lacht (Em-Dm)
Du hast sie trotzdem ge(C)liebt
(Am) Zeigtest der Welt wie man (F) gibt und (Em) gibt und (Dm) gibt

Ihr Hass flog Dir um die Ohren
Hast viele Freunde verloren
Hast uns gezeigt was ein Held ist
Wer auch nicht von dieser Welt ist, ist Dein Freund

(Ref.:)

Was Du tatst hast Du aus (C) Liebe getan
(Am) Liebe statt Hass und (Dm) all uns’rem Wahn
Dagegen kommt keine (C) Macht der Welt an
(Am) Komm’ zeig’ uns was Du noch (Dm) kannst,
Sei (Am) unser (F) Mann (Em-Dm)

Sieh’ an wie die Massen toben
Sie weigern sich Dich zu loben
Vom Feind verkauft und belogen
Haben sie den Mann betrogen der für sie starb

Doch jetzt hab’ ich keine Angst mehr
Vor ihrem brutalen Handwerk
Du hast mich mächtig gemacht
Denn Du stärkst jeden der schwach ist,
arm und matt

(Ref. 2x)

... denn (Em) es gibt (Dm) nichts was (C) ich durch (Am) Dich nicht (Dm) kann

Selbstmitleid       (by Dave Mendoza, June 8, 2004)

In meinem Kopf lief heut‘ ‘ne Show von ganz besond’rer Art
Der Showhost, Mr. Ego präsentierte seinen Star
„Maine Damen, meine Herren, heut‘ mit von der Partie:
das Selbstmitleid mit seiner Show ‚Fühl‘ mich so elend wie noch nie‘“

Ein Hauch von seinem Zaubergas verwandelt dich im Nu
in Kummersack und Trauerkloß mit ihrem Hit „Buhu“
Buhuhuhu, buhuhuhu, buhuhuhu, buhuhuhu

Das Selbstmitleid im Rampenlicht verneigte sich ganz tief
& widmete dann mir persönlich sein allerneu’stes Lied
Es hieß „Du armer, mega-oberallerärmster Mann“
und zog mich dann mit seiner Melodie in seinen Bann
Buhuhuhu, buhuhuhu, buhuhuhu, keiner hört mir zu außer Du

Du kamst durch meine Tür nicht durch den Kopf sondern durch’s Herz
Tratst meinem Teufel in den Hintern dass er flog, ganz ohne Scherz
Mit einer kalten Dusche triebst du auch Herrn Ego fort
das Wasser war so kühl und klar, das Wasser was Dein Wort

Juhuhuhu, keiner kämpft wie Du
Du wandelst meine Traurigkeit in Freude um im Nu
Juhuhuhu alles wird gut
Wo gestern noch die Einsamkeit war, da bist heute Du




                                           258
                          Sinn des Lebens
Die Suche nach dem Sinn des Lebens
Ist nicht, wie mancher meint, vergebens
Auch ist das Thema nicht tabu,
sperr’n sich auch noch so viele vor ihm zu
Im Gegenteil, so manches Kind nimmt schon zuweil
Ganz unbewusst an dem Geheimnis teil
Muss es doch auch durch sein Benehmen
Lernen dass geben seliger ist als nehmen
Drum, langes Suchen, kurzer Sinn: nur wer gibt der auch gewinnt
Wer Liebe kennt, der weiß: hierin liegt uns` res kurzen Lebens Sinn
(intro)
Die Suche nach dem Sinn des Lebens
Ist nicht die Irrfahrt eines jeden
Der glaubt Gott wäre sein Verstand,
sein Bauch, sein Auto oder Land
Er findet sich vielmehr von selbst
Wenn ein Herz mit einem anderen verschmilzt.
Drum, langes Suchen, kurzer Sinn: nur wer liebt ...
... Sinn                 liegt uns’res ...




                                                  259
Steig Hinauf


(Em)Verlaut’ es nur, verbirg’ es (D) nicht
unter ’nen (B7) Scheffel stellt man kein (Em) Licht
Öffne die Tür, lass es hinaus
Was du bekommst muss wieder `raus
Du bist nicht nur zum über(Am)leben hier
Wie (B7) all die anderen (Em) auch

Du hast die Wahl: hoch oder tief
Geht auch so manches dabei schief,
der höh’re Weg ist deine Berufung
alles andere ist naiv
Du lebst nicht nur für dich allein
komm’, zeig uns: was ist dein Motiv

(Chorus:)

(G) Lass nicht länger ver (C)loren sein
was es (Am) hier zu finden (D) gibt
Du bist dazu geboren ein Strom zu sein
der nie versiegt
Hör nicht auf all’ die ander’n die sagen
„es hat keinen Sinn, gib’ auf“
Dieser Berg ist dein Schicksal
es gibt nur eins zu tun, steig `rauf

Unten im Tal sind sie entsetzt
Weil du ihr Weltbild schier zerfetzt
„So geht das nicht, komm’ sofort da runter
du verstößt gegen das Gesetzt“
Doch hör’ nicht auf die, ihre Titanic geht unter
Der beste Lacher lacht zuletzt

TV-Zombie
(Chorus:)
TV (Em) Zombie, (Am) TV (Em) Zombie (B) (2x)

(Em) Ich bin ein TV Zombie, glotz' von (Am) früh bis spät
Ich zap' mich durch die Sender bis gar nichts mehr geht
(G) Ich zieh' mir jede Talkshow rein, den aller(D)letzten Tratsch
(Em) Kenn' jeden Werbespot und (B) füll' mein Hirn mit Quatsch

(Ch.)

Ich bin ein TV Zombie, leb' auf meiner Couch
meine Fernbedienung ist alles was ich brauch'
Vielleicht ein Fläschchen oder 2 dazu
und wenn ihr mich in Ruhe lasst, lass' ich euch auch in Ruh'

(Ch.)

Ich wünsch' mir Unterhaltung, denn was brauch' ich sonst?
Dann muss ich nicht mehr denken, das ist meine Kunst
Und wenn ich einst in's Gras beiss', geb' den Löffel ab
Dann denkt an meine Glotze und legt sie mir mit in's Grab

(Ch.)

(G) Meine Seele gehört dem (D) Master,
der GEZ und dem Flimmer(Em)kasten
sein Wunsch ist mein Be(B)fehl

(Ch.) (2x)




                                            261
Was könnt’ wichtiger sein?

(Em) gut oder schlecht, so leicht richtet es sich nicht
drum lass’ es lieber (A) sein
Liebe hat recht, wer nicht liebt, der bleibt ein Knecht
Nur sie kann be(D)frei’n

Arm oder reich, ganz so wichtig ist das nicht
Wie was in dir steckt
Hart oder weich – wie aufrichtig ist das Herz
Das da in dir schlägt?

Dir oder mir, wem gehört das Ganze hier?
Wer regiert deine Welt?
Liebe ist mir wichtiger als meine Gier
Nach Ruhm, nach Macht und Geld

(Ref.:)
(G) Ich wüsste (D) nicht was könnt’ wichtiger (A) sein
als dieses Licht das auf mein Leben scheint
Siehst du es nicht selber auch langsam ein?
Die einzige Pflicht in der Welt
Ist einfach du zu (Em) sein

Ganz so viel Text verarbeitet ihr ja nicht
Drum lass ich’s lieber sein
Und lass den Rest dieses Lieds ganz prompt und schlicht
Wie den Anfang sein

Arm oder reich...

Dir oder mir...

(Ref. 2x)

Wer bin ich           (Dietrich Bonhoeffer, 1943)

(Em) Wer bin (G) ich? Einsames (As2) Fragen
(C) treibt (Ds2) mit mir (Em) Spott
Wer ich auch (G) bin, Du (As2) kennst mich
(C) Dein bin (Ds2) ich, oh (Em) Gott

(Em)Wer bin ich? Sie (G) sagen mir oft,
ich träte (As2) aus meiner Zelle
ge(C)lassen und (Ds2)heiter und (Em) fest
wie ein (G)Gutsherr aus seinem (As2) Schloß. (C) (Ds2)

(Em)Wer bin ich? Sie sagen mir (G) oft,
ich spräche mit (As2) meinen Bewachern
(C) frei und (Ds2) freundlich und (Em) klar,
als (G) hätte ich zu ge(As2)bieten. (C) (Ds2)

(Em) Wer bin ich? Sie sagen mir (G) auch,
ich trüge die (As2) Tage des Unglücks
(C) gleichmütig, (Ds2) lächelnd und (Em) stolz,
wie (G) einer, der Siegen ge(As2)wohnt ist. (C) (Ds2)

(Em) Bin ich das wirklich, was ander(C)e von mir (Ds2) sagen?
Oder (Em) bin ich nur das, was ich (C) selbst von mir (Ds2) weiß?

Un(G)ruhig, sehnsüchtig, (D) krank, wie ein Vogel im (Em) Käfig,
(C) ringend nach (Ds2) Lebens(Em)atem, als (G) würgte mir einer die (D) Kehle,
hungernd nach (Am) Farben, nach (Em) Blumen, (G) nach Vogel(D)stimmen,

(G) dürstend nach guten (D) Worten, nach menschlicher (Am) Nähe, (C)
(Am) zitternd vor (Em) Zorn über (D) Willkür und kleinlichste (Am) Kränkung,
umge(C)trieben vom (Em)Warten (C) auf große (D) Dinge,

(G) ohnmächtig bangend um (D) Freunde in endloser (Am) Ferne,
müde und (C) zu leer zum (Em) Beten, zum (C) Denken, zum (D) Schaffen,
(Am) matt und be(Em)reit, von allem (C) Abschied zu (D) nehmen?
Wer bin (Am) ich? (C) Der oder (D) jener?

(G) Bin ich denn heute (D) dieser und morgen ein (Am) anderer?
Bin ich (C) beides zu(Em)gleich? Vor (C) Menschen ein (D) Heuchler
und vor mir (Am) selbst ein ver(Em)ächtlich weh(C)leidiger (D) Schwächling?

Oder (G) gleicht, was in mir noch (D) ist, dem geschlagenen (Am) Heer,
das in (C) Unordnung (Em) weicht vor schon ge(C)wonnenem (D) Sieg?

Wer bin (Am) ich? (C) Einsames (D) Fragen (F) treibt (G) mit mir (Am) Spott.
Wer ich auch (C) bin, Du (D) kennst mich, (F) Dein bin (G) ich, o (Am) Gott!
Wer bin (C) ich? Einsames (D) Fragen...
