1974 Final Touch

SINCE I OPENED UP THE DOOR
(Chuck Girard-Fred Field)

 

In my weakness, You always make me strong
All I wanna do now is praise You all day long
If I should stumble You’re there to pick me up
When I get thirsty, I know You’ll fill the cup

Since I opened up, opened up the door
I can’t think of anything else but You anymore
Since I opened up, opened up the door
I can’t think of anything else but You anymore

In a shadow, You flood me with Your light
To give You pleasure is now my one delight
When I get weary, You give me peaceful rest
If my life gets troubled, I know it’s just a test

(CHORUS)

When I get lonely, You’re there to comfort me
You clear the haze away so that my eyes can see
If I’m distracted, You pull me back in line
All I can say Lord, You really treat me fine

(CHORUS)

JOYOUS LAMENT
(Fred Field-Chuck Girard)


Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do-do, la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

We have lived in darkness for a long, long time
No one there to guide our way
Bump our heads on everything in sight
Because we cannot see the light of day

You must live in Jesus light
If you want to live in Heaven
How long are you going to stumble round
Find no peace in what you’re doing

Living in a world of our own design
Thinking we could fool ourselves forever
But in everybody’s life there comes that time
He must choose then or he will maybe never know

We have felt such a need to fill an empty space
Everybody’s had their say
Take a chance with every different face
Find no satisfaction in their ways
You must live in Jesus light
If you want to live in Heaven
How long are you going to trip & stumble round
Find no peace in what you’re doing

Jesus loves you if you’ll only let Him
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

JESUS PUTS THE SONG IN OUR HEARTS
(Fred Field-Chuck Girard)

 

Hey, have you lost the feeling
Don’t you hear the music anymore
Hey, have you tried to listen
But you thought you’d heard the song before

CHORUS:

Jesus puts the song in our hearts
Jesus sets us free
Jesus puts the song in our hearts
Jesus brings a joyful melody

Hey, have you seen the changes
All your friends who have a happy glow
Hey, haven’t you been wonderin’
What it is they found and what they know

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Hey, you can hear the music
He is singing out to all
Hey, open up your ears now
Jesus means for you to hear the call

THINK ABOUT WHAT JESUS SAID
(Chuck Girard)

 

Think about what Jesus said
Before you let your mind reject Him
Listen to your heart instead
And you will accept Him

There may be many questions
That you’d like to answer somehow
All things will be shown someday
But you can’t know all things now
But if you drain yourself
Of all your little fears
You might restore yourself
By letting go the tears

(CHORUS)

I know it gets confusin’
And you don’t know where you can turn
But if you will control yourself
You’ll find that you will learn
It gets so hard sometimes
So much you could believe
Blind men who don’t even know
Tryin’ to deceive

(CHORUS)

LIVING WATER
(Chuck Girard-Jay Truax)

 

Have you heard about the living water
From the fountain of the Most High Father
It is from the source of God’s great power
It will make you strong in time of deepest need

Have you thirsted for the living water
Every one of us has this desire
It will fill the empty yearning hollow
It will strengthen you with every drink you take

Feel it flowing forth from deep, deep within you
God’s eternal spring of clear, refreshing truth
Let it satisfy your deepest inner longing
Come and drink of it and you will find relief

Once you’ve tasted of the living water
You can’t fill your need with any other
Do you want to drink the living water
Come and follow then and bear the cross of love

SUNDAY AFTERNOON
(Fred Field-Tom Coomes-Chuck Girard)

Shimmering jade, comforting shade
Sunday Afternoon
I will spend it with you
Ocean of glass, meadow of brass
Sunday Afternoon
Please spend it with me
Oh, here you are
Not very far from my heart

Sun from you eye, wind from your sky
Sunday Afternoon
I will spend it with you
Heart beat with mine, in perfect time
Sunday Afternoon
Please spend it with me
Oh, here am I
Splendidly high, on Your love
ahhh-ahh-ahhh-aaah, La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

BOOK OF LIFE
(Tom Coomes-Chuck Girard)

 

Chorus

I keep my thumb between the pages
And my heart in the book
Talkin’ ’bout the Book of Life
When my life gets too confusin’
Well, I stop and take a second look
Take another look in the Book of Life

At times my heart gets down right faithless
And I sink into the quicksand of my sin
That’s when the Word of God can purge my sinner’s heart
And free me from those old desires that pop up now and then

Chorus

The first time that I read it I was floatin’
The second time I felt the change begin
The third time thru the truth began to hit me
The Word of God is washin’ out my brain, amen

Chorus

I used to worry ’bout my waistline
I found it awful hard to grin
But now my soul delights in feedin’ on the Word
(Amen)
Can’t stuff enough of them spiritual calories in

I keep my thumb between the pages
And my heart in the book
Talkin’ ’bout the Book of Life
When my life gets too confusin’
Well, I stop and take a second look
Take another look in the Book of Life
Why don’t we take another look in the Book of Life
Come on let’s take another look in the book

(In the book)
In the book
(In the book)
In the Book of Life

DON’T YOU KNOW
(Chuck Girard)


Don’t you know it’s not enough to sit around
Don’t you know the time has come to get it on
Don’t you know the benefits you will receive my friend
In the long run will depend on what you give

Don’t you know how patient God has been
Don’t you know He’s waiting for our love to grow
Don’t you know He wants for you to come into His rest
And to pass each little test and be a man

Don’t you know His heart is waiting
Patiently anticipating
The day when you’ll begin to become sure
Don’t you know He wants His small ones
To become His strong and tall ones
God wants all His children to mature
And start to live the kind of lives which give Him pleasure
He desires to give us blessings without measure
But we’ll never find the fullness of the treasure no, no, no
Less we take our cross and bear it like a man

Don’t you know He’s disappointed
When you just become acquainted
Then you turn your back and go your way

LITTLE PILGRIM
(Chuck Girard)

 

Little Pilgrim walking down the road of life
I find that in your heart, you’re just a lonely one
For you see, upon that very road
My search for good and truth had its beginning
You take a little turn to the left
And you see what that path has to offer you
Then you gotta make it back to the main road anyhow
And you have all that lost time to make up for
And it’s a sad thing… to realize
That you’re all alone, that you’re on your own again

Little Pilgrim, walking down the road of life
Can’t you see that there are many others
Who are just like you
I was lookin’ in that same direction
But all I ever found were others
Who were searching just like me
And we didn’t find the way or the answers
To the questions that were buried deep down in our souls
We just found that the ways of men have no answers
Anyhow

Oh, don’t you wonder now
What you’re tryin’ to do
Oh, don’t you wonder now
Where that path is takin’ you

Little Pilgrim, walking down the road of life
I know that deep down in your heart that you are just like me
What you’re seekin’ is a better way
And you’re reachin’ out for temporary resting places
And you’re glad to find a little peace of mind here and there
But it won’t last no, no, cause you’ll have to move along someday
‘Til you’re resting in the arms of the only one who can help you
‘Til you give your heart and your soul and your body
And your mind and your life to the Lord
And it’s a glad thing to realize
That you’re not alone no more
That you found your way back home
Back home
