BUILD MY WORLD

 

I’m gonna build my world around you,

It’s the best thing I ever did,

Gonna live my life, in your loving arms,

And I’ll never fear again.

 

There’s not a day goes by, in my short life,

That I don’t depend on you,

Seems the more I trust, the more I must,

And I’m never gonna fear again.

 

Whoa oh, what a wonder to know that your love,

Will never, ever let me go.

When I roam, when I’m wrong you take me back,

Forgiving and forgetting my wrong.

 

Whoa oh, what a wonder to know that your love,

Will never, ever let me go.

When I roam, when I’m wrong you take me back,

Forgiving and forgetting my wrong.

 

I’m gonna build my world around you,

It’s the best thing I ever did,

Gonna live my life, in your loving arms,

And I’ll never fear again.

Well, I’m never gonna fear again,

I’m never gonna fear again,

I’m never gonna fear again – gonna fear again

.

AIN’T HE WONDERFUL

 

I just want to praise you,

I just want to love you,

I just want to bless His Holy Name,

I just want to lift my voice unto the heavens,

Thanking you for all you’ve done for me.

 

Ooh, ain’t He wonderful,

Ooh, ain’t He marvelous.

Messiah of salvation, reconciliation,

Messiah is the sacrifice for me,

Messiah paid the price, my life is now so nice,

God is no more a mystery,

I said He is no more mystery.

Ooh, ain’t He wonderful,

Ooh, ain’t He marvelous – to me….

 

Messiah of salvation, reconciliation,

Messiah is the sacrifice for me,

Reigns in the heavens, worshipped by the angels,

You are glorious to me,

I said, you are glorious to me.

Ooh, ain’t He wonderful,

Ooh, ain’t he marvelous – to me….

 

Thank you Lord,

Thank you, thank you Lord,

Thank you Lord,

Thank you, thank you Lord.

Thank you Lord for things you have done,

Thank you Lord, there’s no doubt about it,

Thank you Lord for victory’s won,

Thank you Lord, tell the world about it.

THERE’S A FRIEND

 

There is a friend that is closer than a brother,

Closer than sister and closer than a mother,

Closer than family ties to each other,

There’s nobody closer than Him.

 

He sticks beside me whenever there’s trouble,

When it piles around me like ashes and rubble,

He lifts me up over evil’s endeavor,

There’s nobody closer than Him.

 

A man chooses many a person for friendship,

A woman to wife – a partner for business,

Put them together, you cannot compare them,

There’s nobody closer than Him.

 

When I’ve got a problem and I need an answer,

I turn to the one who can solve my dilemma,

He never will fail me and never will never,

There’s nobody closer than Him.

 

Can there really be such a care and compassion,

A lover who watches my life’s situation,

Pardoning all of my imperfections,

There’s nobody closer than Him.

 

A man chooses many a person for friendship,

A woman to wife – a partner for business,

Put them together, you cannot compare them,

There’s nobody closer than Him.

 

There’s nobody closer and nobody sweeter,

There’s nobody stronger, and kinder and deeper,

Intimate friend, Oh I cannot deny,

That there’s nobody closer than Him.

 

There’s nobody closer and nobody sweeter,

There’s nobody stronger, and kinder and deeper,

Intimate friend, Oh I cannot deny,

That there’s nobody closer than You.

There’s nobody closer and nobody sweeter,

There’s nobody stronger, and kinder and deeper,

Intimate friend, Oh I cannot compare you,

That there’s nobody closer than You.

Oooh, whoooh…….

 

Nobody closer, there’s nobody sweeter….

I said stronger and a deeper..

Intimate friend, oh I cannot deny it,

There’s nobody closer than You.

Well, There’s nobody closer and nobody sweeter,

There’s nobody stronger and kinder and deeper,

Put them together, you cannot deny it,

There’s nobody closer than Him……

.

WHOM HAVE I

 

Whom have I, in Heaven but you,

There is none on Earth that I desire,

Though my flesh fail,

You’re the strength of my heart.

 

And as for me, ooh, draw me near, to you Oh Lord,

It’s good for me, I’ve made you my refuge,

You’re the strength of my heart.

 

When I was bitter, deeply pressed within,

A beast and a creature in your sight.

Nevertheless, I’m constantly with you,

You took me and held my right hand,

And guided me with your counsel….

(refrain)

You’re the strength of my heart.

 

When I was bitter, deeply pressed within

A beast and a creature in your site,

Nevertheless, I’m constantly with you,

You took me and held my right hand,

And guided me with your counsel….

You’re the strength of my heart.

 

Whom have I in Heaven but you,

There is none on Earth who I desire,

Though my flesh fail me,

You’re the strength of my heart.

JONAH

 

Jonah……

Jonah – Jonah, where are you?

Jonah – Jonah, where are you?

 

The Lord came to me way down around Joppa Bay,

He said, Get up Jonah, go preach to Nin-a-veh-a

But I didn’t wanna, why should I preach to them.

So I got on a boat and took it the other way.

 

Oooh, Jonah, where are you going?

Who do you think you are, you cannot hide.

Oooh, Jonah, won’t you stop running – yeah?

You know in your heart you cannot escape my eye.

 

A terrible storm came up, out on the sea,

The captain and the crew finally figured out the trouble was me.

I said, “all will be well, just throw me over the side.”

So over I went into the belly of a fish three days and nights.

 

Oooh, Jonah, where are you going?

Who do you think you are, you cannot hide.

Oooh, Jonah, won’t you stop running – yeah?

You know in your heart you cannot escape my eye.

 

The waters were dark, the waves rushing over,

The seaweed was wrapped round my head.

The ocean was raging, my soul was a fainting,

And then I remembered your face.

And I cried out, ‘Adonai save me.”

And you heard me, from the depths you brought me.

Hallelujah, hallelujah,

Hallelujah, halleljuah.

 

I learned the value of boldness on that day,

It really doesn’t matter what plot gets in your way,

Right or wrong you cannot run from Him.

You’re never too near or far to hear Him say,

 

Oooh, Jonah, where are you going?

Who do you think you are, you cannot hide.

Oooh, Jonah, won’t you stop running – yeah?

You know in your heart you cannot escape My eye.

 

Jonaaaaaah, Jonaaaah………………………..

I’LL BE A FOOL

 

People, they say I’m a fool,

cause I trust in you,

They say I could do much better now,

By not thinking it through.

They say I could be a real star in this world,

If I would change my tune,

But I’ve found the secret of real happiness,

And that’s loving you

 

So I’ll be a fool for you,

Nothing could end your day,

Cause being a fool for you,

Means Heaven is coming my way

 

My life has been more than paid for,

So what can I do.

I owe Him my life and I’d give Him much more,

If I only could.

He turned things around, and you know what I found,

What a fool I’d be,

If He left me alone I would turn into stone,

And that’s not for me.

 

So I’ll be a fool for you,

Nothing could end your day,

Cause being a fool for you,

Means Heaven is coming my way

So I’ll be a fool for you,

Nothing could end your day,

Cause being a fool for you,

Means Heaven is coming my way

 

I’ll be a fool for you, any old day now,

I’ll be a fool for you, any old day now,

I’ll be a fool for you, any old day now,

I’ll be a fool for you, any old day now.

.

HEAL ME

 

Late in the night watching.

Late in the night while I was just laying on my bed,

My thoughts meditate Lord on You – on You.

Then I remember the things You have done,

The help in time of trouble and need.

Oh how my soul follows close behind you,

Thy right hand holds me and keeps me from ruin and destruction,

Under the shadow of Thy Wings I sit,

And lift up my hands in Your Name.

Heal me O Lord and I’ll be healed,

Save me and I’ll be save-ed

Put all my tears in your bottle,

For You alone can help me.

The days of a man, they resemble the grass,

He blossoms like a flower in the field – in the field,

Then the wind blows and the bloom disappears,

Leaving no trace on the ground.

For His love is faithful and rests upon me,

And all of those who love in His righteousness, endures forever,

He understands all the things that we are,

Keeping in mind we are dust.

Heal me O Lord and I’ll be healed,

Save me and I’ll be save-ed

Put all my tears in your bottle,

For You alone can help me.

 Put all my tears in your bottle,

For You alone can help me.

.

WE WAIT ON YOU
(Ps. 44:1-4, 23-26)

 

As a deer pants for water my soul longs for You,

How can we go on and on without you,

Groans in the night, tears in the day,

Ooo — we wait on you.

 

O Lord, with our ears we have heard it been told,

Our fathers have spoken of days long ago,

They say you did works, strong and mighty were they,

You scattered the nations and saved us from shame.

 

Hey hey hey, why do you sleep,

Cast us not off, but show us thy face,

For our souls are bowed to the dust,

Rise up O Lord and deliver us.

 

They say it was not by their own sword they won,

Nor did their strong arm gain them sure victory,

But it was Thy hand and the light of thy face,

That set Jacob free and brought deliverance.

 

Hey hey hey, why do you sleep,

Cast us not off, but show us thy face,

For our souls are bowed to the dust,

Rise up O Lord and deliver us.

 

As a deer pants for water my soul longs for You,

How can we go on and on without you,

Groans in the night, tears in the day,

Ooo — we wait on you.

 

Deep calls to deep and our souls call to you,

Come sing us a song in the night – and lead us,

Send out your light send out all your truth

Ooo — we wait on you

Ooo — we wait on you

 

Lord with our ears we have heard it been told,

Salvation will come and oppression will go,

They say one will come and atonement He’ll bring,

So bring Him O Lord and to Him we will cling

 
 
Hey hey hey, why do you sleep
 
Cast us not off but show us thy face
 
For our souls they cry to you
 
Ooo — we wait on you
 
Ooo — we wait on you
 
Ooo — we wait on you

FALLOW GROUND

 

What can I do – do about you – Ephraim

What can I say – say about you – Judah

Your love is like a morning cloud – it quickly disappears

You must turn and reconcile,

So I can wipe away your every fear,

So I can wipe away your every tear.

 

Didn’t I watch – watch over you – Ephraim,

Didn’t I take – take care of you – Judah,

All that I ask of you – is that you follow me,

And more than sacrifice,

You seek the deeper truth of knowing me,

You seek the deeper truth of knowing me,

 

Lo, sew unto me – righteousness,

You’ve got to break up – the fallow ground,

Lo, then you will reap – the fruit of love,

You’ve got to break up the fallow ground.

 

All that I ask of you – is that you follow me,

And more than sacrifice,

You seek the deeper truth of knowing me,

You seek the deeper truth of knowing me,

 

Lo, sew unto me – righteousness,

You’ve got to break up – the fallow ground,

Lo, then you will reap – the fruit of love,

You’ve got to break up the fallow ground.

Lo, sew unto me righteousness,

Then you will reap, the fruit of love,

You’ve got to break up the fallow ground.

Break up the fallow ground, Lo

THE LORD IS WITH ME

 

The Lord is with me – is with me always,

The Lord is with me always,

The sun may go down and the moon fade away,

But my God is with me always.

 

The Lord is with me – is with me always,

The Lord is with me always,

The sun may go down and the moon fade away,

But my God is with me always.

 

The Lord is with me – is with me always,

The Lord is with me always,

The sun may go down and the moon fade away,

But my God is with me always.
