Verse 2:
I’ve got something I’d like to tell
He saved my soul from a burning hell
He picked me up when I was low
Put joy down in my soul

Tag:
He’s my Redeemer
He is our Savior
Jesus is worthy, bless His name

ALL THAT I AM

Written by Darcy Abbott


I couldn't change my old heart

to make it new again

And i couldn't change my old life

So broken down with sin


But, all that I am 

All I shall ever be

I owe to the blood, to the blood

Jesus shed for me



Chorus 2:
He was the father in creation
Creating everything
He was the Son in redemption
Who washed away all sin
Holy Ghost in regeneration
Who makes all things new
I know that you believe in one God
And I do too!

THE PRIDE OF THE CROSS
David L Abbott


Verse 1:
Against the shadows of evening
The cross stood tall and serene
It had stretched inside
As rusted spikes crushed into its grain
Though the cross knew no suffering
A memorial it became
It was just the altar
Where the Sacrifice was slain

Chorus:
The middle cross was no different
From the one on either side
It had no certain beauty
Its Burden was its pride
On three crosses men suffered,
And for sin three had to die
Two died for sins of their own
But, Jesus died for mine

 (Chorus)  Tell me the truth, tell me the truth
Don’t let me believe a lie
I want to be saved when I die
Tell me the truth, Tell me the truth
Jesus Christ, He is the “Door”
The way to be saved forevermore
Tell me the truth, the truth.


 (Verse 2)  The people cried at Pentecost
“What must we do?” We are so lost
Tell us the truth, the truth
Peter said, “Repent and be baptized
In the name of Jesus Christ”
He is the Truth, the truth

Verse II
There comes a time, when you give all you can
give
You’ve exhausted your mind,
You don’t think you can live
Tormented by fear, you face the unknown
People are there, yet, you feel all alone
That’s when you reach out in faith
And confess once again
That Jesus is here, and there’s healing in Him
You can touch Him.

"I held Him, the Baby Messiah
I held Him, the Prince of Peace
I've waited here for years it seems
Just to see the King of Kings
And I held Him - that's all I need


And every time we come into this worship place

We sing about God's love and His amazing grace

Then the presence of the Lord,

It comes so close it seems

That we take Him in our arms 

And echo Simeon's theme


I held Him, the precious Messiah

I held Him, the Prince of Peace

I've waited here, just worshiping

And now I fell the King of Kings

I held Him - that's all I need


KEEP ON WALKIN' WITH ME
Darcy R. Abbott/ Jan. 7, 2018
 

Verse 1:

Peter stepped out of the boat

To walk upon the sea
Upheld by his faith and love for the Lord
He walked upon the waves
But when his eyes turned from the Lord
He saw the raging storm
He cried out in fear, but Jesus was near
His touch just seemed to say…

Chorus
Keep on walkin’ with me
Over life’s troubled sea
Don’t get up and quit
Don’t let your faith dip
Keep on walkin’ with me.


HE IS BEAUTIFUL TO ME 

Darcy R. Abbott, Feb 15, 1988,

V1: 

I was one who was not wanted
I wished that I could die
So I grew up knowing nothing
But hate and hurt and vice
Then I heard that Jesus loved me
He died upon a cruel tree
So when you talk about this Jesus
He is beautiful to me.

Cho: 
Oh, He is beautiful,
My Lord is beautiful
I was groping out in darkness
But He shined His light on me
Oh, His love cannot be fathomed
He took away my misery
His name is Jesus
And He is beautiful to me.

Satan so quickly claims you for his prize
He sounds so convincing with deception and lies
He says, "Jesus is dead, 
And He can't hear your call
But, the empty tomb says it all

GOD WILL SEE YOU THROUGH

Written by Darcy Abbott



When the castles that you've built 

All crumble down 

And your dreams are crushed to the ground

There is one Who is able to make all things new

Jesus, He'll see you through


God will see you through

God will see you through

Everything that's going on 

He has planned to make you strong

God will see you through



TELL ME THE TRUTH

Written by Darcy Abbott


(Verse 1) 

Nicodemus came to One who taught,
“Jesus, I know you’ve come from God”
Tell me the truth, the truth
“Nicodemus, you must be born again
Of water and Spirit to enter in”
Then you’ll have truth, real truth.



If you are sick of all that's inside

The struggle for answers, a fight to survive

Just reach out to Jesus and His power to save

And in that moment you too can say


Bridge:  

How could He take my sins away?

How could He turn my night to day?

It was His blood, Jesus' blood

DOWN FROM HIS GLORY
By William Booth Clibborn

Verse 1
Down from His glory, ever living story
My God and Savior came, and Jesus was His name
Born in a manger, to His own a stranger
A man of sorrows, tears and agony

Verse 2
What condescension, bringing us redemption
That in the dead of night, not one faint hope in sight
God gracious, tender, laid aside His splendor
Stooping to woo, to win, to save my soul

Cho.
Oh how I love Him, How I adore Him
My breath, my sunshine, my All in All
The great Creator became my Savior
And all God’s fullness, dwelleth in Him

 

JUST BENEATH THE BLOOD

Written by Darcy Abbott


He Walked the hill called Calvary one day
My Jesus felt suffering, rejection and pain
He had no sin, our Lamb that was slain
And as His blood fell, it broke every chain

Just beneath the blood of Calvary's flow
A man stands forgiven, 
Hands raised toward heaven
Washed whiter than snow
Just beneath the blood
A sinner stands clean
And all his guilty past is buried at last
Just beneath the blood


Now, the skeptics today bring confusion to all

And tradition just won't let some folks see

But, Jesus Christ said, 
"I'm the Way and the Life;

You can't know God unless you know Me."

 Verse one
You are a wonder, sweet Jesus, my Lord
You are marvelous, the One I adore
And you are glorious, my Savior, my joy
Sweet Jesus, blessed Jesus, my Lord

Now I am walking in His blessings

You know the Lord's been good to me

He's the Healer of my body

He set my spirit free

I have His blessing on my family

The half has not been told

And one of these days before too long

I'll walk with Jesus on the streets of gold


Verse 2:
You know I left a different way than I came in
I left with strength to face a world of sin
And when my cup starts feeling low
There’s a secret that I know
I just ask for His refreshing once again


Chorus:
Come on in, sweet Jesus, come on in
Come on in, sweet Jesus, come on in
You know the doors are open wide,
Come and sup with us tonight
Filling us with Holy Ghost wine
Come on in

I CAN TOUCH HIM
Steve Richardson

Verse I
Desperately, she pushed her way through the crowd
They were crushing her now
They were crying aloud
She didn’t care, He was her only hope
This was an issue of life, and she could no longer cope
If she’d ever be healed, if she’d ever be whole
Then He was the one, and she knew in her soul
She had to touch Him.

Chorus
I can touch Him
 He is here within my reach
I can touch Him
 Oh, I feel the healing flow
My faith will make me whole
It is Jesus, I can touch Him.


How could I turn some other way
And try to live life on my own
When Jesus died so willingly 
And with His blood my sins atone
I know that it would be so useless
To try to save myself 
So, I'll put my trust in Jesus
And call upon His name when I need help

(Verse 2)  Many dream of walls of jasper
Gates of pearl and streets of gold
In a land where there’s no sorrow
There’s no fears or growing old
For heaven’s choir I’ll be listening
I’ll join in the jubilee
But it’s Jesus I long for
It’s Jesus I’ll see

Verse two:
His eyes will be twinkling
He’ll have a big smile
He’ll say, “Child, you’re home now,
Come rest for a while.
You’ve fought a good fight,
And you’ve kept the faith
Well done, my good servant.
Let’s walk through the gate!

Verse 2:
Today the cross is lifted up
Everywhere its praise is sung
They say that He Who died thereon
Still lies within the tomb
But, the cross cries from everywhere
“Remember Jesus Christ;
I was just the altar,
But He the Sacrifice.”

Tag:
Two died for sins of their own,
But, Jesus died for mine

YOU GOT THAT RIGHT
David L. Abbott (Aug. 14, 2016)

 

Verse:
If you think there’s only one God
You got that right!
If you think God is a Spirit
You got that right!
If you think Christ was a man
You got that right!
If you think God was in Christ
You got that right!


Chorus 1:
God was in Christ reconciling
This old world unto Himself
On the cross He provided
The sinless sacrifice
When Jesus cried, “It is finished”
God’s blood was applied
And if you think there’s only one God
You got that right!

COME ON IN
Lyrics and Music by Darcy Abbott

 
Verse 1:
When I came into the church house I was dry, so dry
I needed a Holy Ghost drenching from on high
But, then the church began to sing
Those joy bells began to ring
And I felt a Holy Ghost blessing drawing nigh

Chorus:
Come on in, sweet Jesus, come on in
Come on in, sweet Jesus, come on in
You know the doors are open wide,
Come and sup with us tonight
Filling us with Holy Ghost wine
Come on in

THE EMPTY TOMB SAYS IT ALL

Written by David L. Abbott


My life was in shambles so ruined by sin

I was hopelessly clinging to the mess I was in

But, one day at Calvary, Jesus died in my place

Now, I'm forever saved by His wonderful grace


The empty tomb says it all

Christ's death on the cross saved us from the fall

They placed Him in the grave, 

But, hell could not hold Him

And the empty tomb says it all



IT'S JESUS I'LL SEE

Written by David L. Abbott


(Verse 1)  In this world men seek for pleasure
Some for fortune, some for fame
With no thought of salvation
And the One who died for them
But I’m longing for heaven
It’s a place prepared for me
Where I’ll dwell with my Savior
Throughout all eternity

 (Chorus) For it’s Jesus that I want to see
Walls of jasper and streets of gold
Are not enough for me
Friends and family will be gathered
Over by the crystal sea
But it’s Jesus I long for
It’s Jesus I’ll see

 

OH, WHAT A MOMENT!
Written by Darcy R. Abbott


Verse one:
Here we have sorrow,
We struggle with pain
We cry over loved ones
As death makes its claim
One thing keeps us going,
The hope never dies
One day we’ll see Jesus
We’ll meet in the skies


Chorus:
Oh, what a moment
When we see His face!The trials of this life
Will all be erased
Cherish the moment
We feel His embrace
A lifetime of waiting to see His dear face

Verse 2
Life’s not always fair
Tough times will come around
How will I cope, this trial’s too much
Are thoughts we often think
But when our eyes turn to the Lord
And we fall upon our knees
He will be there, our burdens to bear
He beckons us today…

Bridge:
Keep on walking with me
Keep on walking,
Walking with me,
Walking with me

SIMEON'S SONG

Written by Darcy Abbott


The temple was the sight there in Jerusalem

An old man stood and prayed

As people came and went

He scanned the crowd each day,

He looked for that Promised One

He knew his eyes would see

Before his day had come


Then he saw that couple come,

They were bringing their newborn Babe

Hot tears filled his eyes

As the Child in his arms was laid

"Now, I can die in peace,

My dream has come true today."

The crowd just stopped and stared

And you could hear Simeon say'







Oh, What A Moment

Verse III
Each time you have a problem
Don’t sit down and cry
Tell Jesus all about it
He’ll hear you from on high
The righteous aren’t forsaken
God’s Word is tried and true
Just stand upon His promises
Praise God, you’re goin’ thru!

Chorus II
Keep lookin’ up, climbing higher
Soar right past the problem
Comin’ your way
Keep lookin’ up, climbing higher
Move right up and rest
In a heavenly place

Chorus I
I’m lookin’ up, climbing higher
Gonna soar right past the problem
Comin’ my way
I’m lookin’ up, climbing higher
Gonna move right up and rest
In a heavenly place
Move right up and rest in a heavenly,
Move right up and rest in a heavenly,
Move right up and rest in a heavenly place

Verse 2:
Then one day we’ll hear the sound
Of a trumpet blowing loud
Calling all the saints of God to come home
It will be a glorious day when the saints all fly away
And it’s all because one day, He arose

Tag:
That old grave that him bound
Couldn’t hold my Savior down 
That old grave that him bound
Couldn’t hold my Savior down 
That old grave that him bound
Couldn’t hold my Savior down 
He arose, Hallelujah, (x3)
Hallelujah, He arose!

THE BLESSING OF THE LORD

Written by David L. Abbott


I was poor as Job's turkey

Hanging on by the skin of my teeth

But, then I heard of heaven's bounty

And what the Lord had done for me

So, then I put my trust in Jesus

And in the riches of His grace

Now, I'm happy in His blessings every day

I've got a smile upon my face


The blessing of the Lord maketh rich

And addeth no sorrow with it

The blessing of the Lord maketh rich

And addeth no sorrow with it

I want the blessing of the Lord 

In my life every day

I want the Lord walking right beside me

Every step along the way

Because the blessing of the Lord maketh rich

And addeth no sorrow with it


INCREDIBLE

Written by David L. Abbott


I find it's so incredible that Jesus loves me

Incredible that He should care for  me

That I should have this Friend, 

The King of Glory

It's incredible that He should walk with me


You know, I was just a child

I heard the voice of Jesus

And I responded to Him

He cleansed me of my sin and He set me free

He washed away my past

When I took on His name

And now  the Holy Ghost lives in me




Verse 3
Without reluctance, flesh and blood His substance
He took the form of man, revealed the hidden plan
Oh glorious mystery, sacrifice of Calvary
And now I know thou art the Great I AM!

Tag:
The Great Creator became my Savior
And all God’s fullness dwelleth in Him

I'VE G
Chorus by Janet Morton, Verses by Rosemary Snyder Lowe


1: Oh, they were in the temple praising
When the time had come 

For the Spirit of God to fall
All in one mind and in one accordThey were

praying,  one and all
And then suddenly as a rushing wind
The Spirit of God did descend
They said, “ these are not drunk as ye suppose”
But it’s just like the Bible said

Chorus:

I’ve got the Holy Ghost, down in my soul
Just like the Bible said
I’ve got the Holy Ghost, down in my soul
Just like the Bible said
Well, I’ve been to the water, and I’ve been baptized
My soul got happy, and I’m satisfied
I wouldn’t take nothing for my journey now
Just like the Bible
Just like the Bible
Just like the Bible said

2: Joel said upon all flesh in the latter days
The Spirit of God would be poured
It matters not if you’re high or low
Great or small, rich or poor
You don’t need to doubt, for it’s in God’s Book
All you’ve got to do is just take a look
For the Holy Ghost is for us today
And it’s just like the Bible said 

Chorus:
I’ve got the Holy Ghost, down in my soul
Just like the Bible said
I’ve got the Holy Ghost, down in my soul
Just like the Bible said
Well I’ve been to the water, and I’ve been

baptized
My soul got happy, and I’m satisfied
I wouldn’t take nothing for my journey now
Just like the Bible
Just like the Bible
Just like the Bible said

 
I’ve Got It


I’ve got it, I’ve got it (x2)
There’s something about
The power of the Holy Ghost
I can’t explain it,
But, I’ve got it, oh, I’ve got it!

You can have it, you can have it (x2)
There’s something about
The power of the Holy Ghost
I can’t explain it,
But, I’ve got it, oh, I’ve got it!

RUNNIN' FOR MY LIFE
David L. Abbott

Chorus:
You know I’m runnin’ for my life
Runnin’ from all sin and strife
I’m trying hard to keep the pace
I said, I’m trying hard to keep the pace
Until I see my blessed Savior’s face

You know I’m runnin’ for my life

Verse 1:
You know I’m runnin’ (runnin’, runnin’, runnun’

for my life)
For my life (runnin’, runnin’, runnun’ for my life)
You know I’m runnin’ (runnin’, runnin’, runnun’ for my life)
For my life (runnin’, runnin’, runnun’ for my life)
You know, I’ve got my hand on the gospel plow
And there ain’t no time for looking back now
Because I’m runnin’ for my life
And I told my friends the other day
You know, this ain’t no joke
It’s time to pray
Because I’m runnin’ for my life


Bridge
Washed in the blood the precious blood
Washed in the blood the precious blood
Blood of the Lamb, the spotless Lamb
Blood of the Lamb, the spotless Lamb
Saved by His grace, His matchless grace
Saved by His grace, His matchless grace
It was all
Paid in full … by the blood


Verse II
Yes, I know how it feels to walk without shame
Yes, I know, know the feeling innocence brings
And yes, I know how it feels to be happy and free
That’s how I feel since Jesus blood has covered me!

He loves me, He loves me, He loves me
His mercy and His grace, they cover me
He saved me, He saved me, He saved me
It's incredible He's mine for all eternity


And so my friend,

If you don't know the love of Jesus

What joy you can find in Him today

Just turn from sin and call upon the Savior

And then, along with me, you too can say



Incredibly Blessed Lyrics

When the doctor shakes his head
and he says there's no hope
Your heart is breaking in two
There is one Who is able
He knows just what to do 
The Great Physician, 
He's gonna see you through

There is no mountain He can't tunnel through
There is no darkness
His light can't shine through
There is just nothing that my God can't do
Jesus, He'll see you through

V 2: 
Let us reach to those who are hurting
Their cries we can’t ignore
When there is One who really loves them
And wants to be their Lord
Holy Spirit, now flow through me
To those bound in grief and pain
To the soul of man in anguish
And redeem them back again.

Cho: 
Oh, He is beautiful,
My Lord is beautiful
I was groping out in darkness
But He shined His light on me
Oh, His love cannot be fathomed
He took away my misery
His name is Jesus
And He is beautiful to me.

Tag:
His name is Jesus,And He is beautiful to me

HE'S MY LORD AND MY GOD

Written by David L. Abbott


He's my Lord and my God

He's not just a stranger to me

When I looked past the veil 

It was easy to see

He's my Lord and my God


Thomas the doubter said,

"I won't believe until the nail prints I see."

But, when the Master appeared,

All his doubts fled away

And Thomas fell to his knees


I'm standing now redeemed
washed as white as the snow
I'm listening for that sound 

The sound of the trumpet calling me home

Oh, the blood of Jesus
Oh, the blood of Jesus
Oh, the blood of Jesus
The blood Jesus shed for me

HE AROSE
Darcy R. Abbott


Verse 1:
Three days had come and gone
Since the Lord was crucified
There was sorrow in the hearts
Of those He loved
But, it all began to change
When they heard the angel say,
“He’s no longer in the grave,
He arose”

Chorus:
He arose

(Oh, yes, my blessed Lord arose)
He arose

(Death and the grave have lost its hold)
That old grave that had Him bound
Couldn’t hold my Savior down
He arose, hallelujah, He arose!


LOOKIN' UP
Darcy R. Abbott/ Andrew B. Foster


Verse I
The bad news just keeps comin’
Such strife in this old world
It looks like it’s the perfect time
To stand and praise the Lord
The governments are broken
The family’s broken too
But, Jesus knows right where you’re at,
He knows just what to do

Chorus I
I’m lookin’ up, climbing higher
Gonna soar right past the problem
Comin’ my way
I’m lookin’ up, climbing higher
Gonna move right up and rest
In a heavenly place

Verse II
I came to church so empty
My faith was running low

But when I stood to praise the Lord
His glory filled my soul
I left His house rejoicing,
My troubles far behind
The Holy Ghost had filled my heart
Praise God, it cleared my mind 




 Bridge – On its way
Jesus is the answer…..Jesus is the way
Jesus has all power…..Just trust in Him today
It’ll be all right…..If you only knew
He heard you when you called Him
The answers comin' thru.

Chorus
I’ve been washed in the blood of the Lamb
I’ve been washed in the blood of the Lamb

Do you know how it feels to walk without shame?

Do you know, know the feeling innocence brings?

Do you know how it feels to be happy and free?

That's how I feel since Jesus' blood

has covered me!


HE DIED SAVING ME

Written by David L. Abbott


He could have turned the stones to bread

to quench His gnawing hunger

He could have poured out the bitter cup

or passed it on to another

He could have called a million angels

with bloody swords to fight

But, Jesus would not cry for help

So, all alone He faced that dreadful night


He did not come to save Himself

But, Jesus came to save the world

He would not curse His enemies

He drank no gall to soothe His hurt

But, when they cried, "Save Yourself

And come down from the tree!

He did nothing to save Himself 

But, Jesus died saving me



 




Verse 2:
You know I’m runnin’ (runnin’, runnin’, runnun’ for my life)
For my life (runnin’, runnin’, runnun’ for my life)
You know I’m runnin’ (runnin’, runnin’, runnun’ for my life)
For my life (runnin’, runnin’, runnun’ for my life)
You know, the devil may try to turn my around
But, I wouldn’t take nothing for my journey now
Because I’m runnin’ for my life
Now I can almost see the pearly white gates
And when I think about it, I can hardly wait
You see, I’m runnin’ for my life

Chorus:
You know I’m runnin’ for my life
Runnin’ from all sin and strife
I’m trying hard to keep the pace
Until I see my blessed Savior’s face
You know I’m runnin’ for my life

Tag:
You know I’m runnin’ (runnin’, runnin’, runnun’ for my life)
For my life (runnin’, runnin’, runnun’ for my life)

We’ve got so many problems
The clouds have hid our view

Money’s tight, the bills aren’t paid
The suns not comin’ thru
But Jesus is the answer
He has you in His sights
Just turn it over to Him
And let Him clear your mind……

So lift your hands and give Him praise
Just turn it over to Him
