1991 Fire and Light

SET THE TRUMPET TO YOUR MOUTH
(Chuck Girard/Karen Girard)

Narration: In the distance, a multitude of people gathered into groups.
One group is singing and dancing,
while demon forces terrorize the people outside their circle.
Another group is fighting among themselves while demons watch and laugh.
Groups throughout the throng engage in varying activities.
Some are asleep. Some are nursing wounds.
And some are valiantly resisting forces of darkness as they forge ahead.

I see the sun arisin’ and it’s light comes into view
I see the day beginning and it looks like the day is new
I see a people in the distance just talkin’
I see a shadow in the distance just watchin’

There’s a man sitting down over there and as I watch, He begins to rise
I’m impressed as he stands to his feet by his grace, and by his size
He lifts his hands and he beckons to the people who are talkin’
He starts to move and all at once all the people start a walkin’

There’s a crack in the back of the black and a
light shines upon the plain
All the voices of the people are ascending and soon it begins to rain
Thunder strikes as the Lord cries out
All the people give a mighty shout
Lord, set the trumpet to your mouth and blow
Woh, woh oh  oh,  Woh,  woh  oh  oh

Sleepers awake from the depths of slumber
Wake up from the American dream
You know the rest of the world is cryin’ in pain
Open up your windows, reach a hand to the man outside
There’s a world out there that’s dyin’ in vain
Woh, woh  oh  oh, Woh,   woh,  oh  oh

The rod comes down with a mighty sound as the earth begins to shake
People callin’ to the living God but for some it will be too late
The clock is movin’ to the final hour
Jesus coming back in all of his power
Lord, set the trumpet to your mouth and blow

Lord, set the trumpet to your mouth and blow

WALLS OF PRAISE 
(Chuck Girard)

Come before the Lord with singin’ Come before the Lord with praise
Come before the Lord with dancin’ in your heart, O Israel

Come before the Lord with the tambourine
Come before the Lord with the drum
Come before the Lord with dancin’ in your heart, O Israel

The enemy is routed as you lift your voice to praise Him
And the walls go up, the walls go up
As you lift up your hands the walls are raisin’
And the walls go up, the walls go up

Come before the Lord with singin’ Come before the Lord with praise
Come before the Lord with dancin’ in your heart, O Israel

CHORUS:

The voice of the Lord will shatter the darkness
As the walls go up, the walls go up
He will strike with the rod and beat them down
As the walls go up, the walls go up

BRIDGE:

Walls of praise are bein’ raised to the glory of the King
Strongholds fall as the children call and we hear their voices ring
The walls come down as the enemy is bound to the rhythm of the tambourine
Walls of praise are bein’ raised, our God is on the scene

REPEAT CHORUS AND BRIDGE

FOLLOW THE LIGHT
(Chuck Girard)

The Word has always been from the beginning
It is ..the Word of life and it will always be
The Word became a  man and lived among us
And we beheld Him full of grace and full of truth

For He is the Light,
Yes, He is the Light
He is the Light,
Yes, He is the Light

He came in to  the world, but it did not know Him
He came unto ..His own, but they did not  receive
But to the ones who did, He gave them power
To be the sons of God, the ones who would believe

And follow the Light,
And follow the Light

So follow the Light, the light of all mankind
And the freedom you will find
Will deliver you from sin and death, from loneliness
Follow the Light,
Follow the Light, be free

Follow the Light, it is beckoning you
Follow the Light, He is callin’
Follow the Light, let the day star shine
Follow the Light, He is callin’
He is callin’, so follow His light

FOLLOW THE LIGHT
(Part 2)

All things were made by Him, all things were created
In Him was life and light, the light of all mankind
We recognized the Word, we know His name is Jesus
His kingdom rules forever, He is King of kings

Yes, He is the Light,
He is the Light

BLESSED IN THE CITY
(Chuck Girard)

Well, if you flow with the Spirit, if you follow His voice
If you hear what He says and you make the right choice
If you do what He says and you don’t hesitate
And you follow His voice, then these blessings await

CHORUS

You’ll be blessed in the city, you’ll be blessed in the field
All your plans will be fruitful, all your planting will yield
Goin’ in and comin’ out, you know there’ll never be a doubt
The Bible says you’ll always be the head, you’ll never be the tail

He will open the heavens so the heavens will rain
On your land in it’s season and shall bring forth the grain
If you hear His commandments and you do every one
High above every nation is your place in the sun

Repeat chorus

Bridge:

Devil never know just where you’re goin’
Devil never know just where you’ll be tonight
Devil never know just where to find you
Devil never know cause the devil gonna be in flight

If you keep His commandments and you walk in His way
Then He’ll bless you and keep you cause you choose to obey
All the earth shall respect you cause you’re called by His name
Trouble shall come, but it shall flee seven ways

Repeat chorus

FRESH BREAD
(Chuck Girard)

Fresh bread, cool water, come and receive it
Fresh bread, cool water, come and receive it
Cease from your labors, come now and dine
Fresh bread, cool water, come get the oil and wine

In every life there comes a time to dance
In every life there comes a time to be still
Sometimes you’re given’ out until there’s nothin’ left
Then there’s a time that comes to be refreshed and filled

Repeat chorus

Come get the oil of gladness, and the bread of life
Come get the living water, be refreshed tonight
Come get the fruit of joy, come on and dance in the dirt
We’ll get the mud off your shoes and
Have you back to the table in time for dessert

Repeat chorus

There’s a season of labor, then a day of rest
There’s a time of trial, then you pass the test
There’s a time when the wind blows, then a time of peace
There’s a time when you have to fast, then a time, a time when you feast

CHORUS

Come get the living water
Come get the bread of life
Come get the oil of gladness
Be refreshed tonight
Cease from your labor, come now and dine
Fresh bread, cool water, come get the oil and wine

FILL MY CUP 
(Chuck Girard)

Here’s my cup would you fill it up, would You let me overflow
My heart just wants to show, how I love You
I will sing and I will shout, makin’ music to You Lord
My heart will strike the chord of my steadfast love

Fill my cup, fill it up with the fallin’ rain
Fill my cup, fill it up, like it was again
Come and dine, come and walk through the open door
I’ve had a taste of Your love
And I want more, more, more

FILL MY CUP, FILL IT UP
BAPTIZE ME IN THE CRYSTAL SEA AND FILL ME UP
FILL MY CUP, FILL IT UP
CAPTURE ME WITH YOUR SPIRIT PLEASE AND FILL ME UP

When I’m blue and it dims my view like a faded photograph
Just blow away the chaff, let the wind blow
I get weary and I get worn and I lose my point of view
But I’ll get my eye on You and I won’t let go

LIFT MY HANDS
(Chuck Girard)

There’s a river I  know and the river flows
From the bottom of my heart
There was a woman at a well
Who’s story I could tell you
And she found out
With a love so big, a God so good
What’s to be sad about,
The joy comes in and the peace comes down,
Then the praise comes out

I gotta lift my hands,
I gotta lift my heart
I gotta lift my voice to sing, to praise my King
I gotta lift my hands

When the goin’ gets tough and I’m feelin’ down
And the river don’t seem to flow
I take it by faith, it’s gonna be ok,
Because I know that I know that I know
If the Lord who died is on my side
Who can be against me
Just like Him I will rise again as He lifts me free

(chorus, verse, chorus)

O HOLY NIGHT
(Chuck Girard)

O holy night, unlike any other night in all of time
O holy night, to shine forever, a night, a night divine
A night of peace, while shepherds watch their flocks on fields of green
A night so clear, as heaven waits to break upon the scene

O holy night, all the stars are in sight
as the moonlight falls across the field
O holy night, in the still of the night
the darkness comes, and the twilight yields
Then suddenly, a voice of many waters fill the sky
Then suddenly, a choir of angel voices ring on high

Chorus:

Today unto us a Savior is given,
Today unto us a Saviour is born
The light of the world, the light of all mankind
Blessing and glory and honor forever
To Him who shall bear the sins of the world
Today unto us has come the light of the world

O holy night, unto us a son is given
Unto us a babe is born
O holy night, unto us a gift is given
Unto us the child is born

And the bells are ringin’
(Boung, boung,boung,boung,boung)

Hear the bells ringing hear the bells ringin’ now
(Boung, boung,boung,boung,boung)

REPEAT CHORUS

BE ENTHRONED OH GOD
(Wendell Burton/Chuck Girard)

Oh Lord Most High we come before You now
And with one heart we ask again
That we might worship You in holiness
And to Your presence enter in
Draw back the veil that we might see Your face
And gaze with love into Your eyes
And in the wonder of beholding You
Our song of worship will arise

BE ENTHRONED OH GOD,
ON OUR SONG OF PRAISE
LET OUR HEARTS BE FILLED WITH THE POWER
OF YOUR GLORY AND YOUR MAJESTY
BE ENTHRONED OH GOD,
REIGN OH RIGHTEOUS KING
LET OUR HEART SONG RISE UNTO YOU,
WITH THE LOVE THAT IT CONVEYS,
BE ENTHRONED UPON OUR PRAISE OH GOD

Oh Lord in reverence we worship You
Our head held high our hearts bowed down
We join the hosts of heaven at Your feet
And cast before You every crown

TALK TO ME
(Chuck Girard)

Talk to Me
Talk to Me
I’m waiting in the morning, I wait throughout the day
How sweet it is for Me to hear, all the things you have to say
How lovely is the music of your heart
Talk to Me, My love

Talk to Me
Talk to Me
I’ve loved you forever and forever I will be
The one who will always love you, and when you are with Me
How lovely is the music of your heart
Talk to Me, My love

I love to hear your praises, I love to hear you pray
I love to hold You in My arms at night
And dry your tears away
Talk to me
Talk to me
Talk to Me, My love

HEARTS OF FIRE
(Chuck Girard)

Jesus see me at your feet, born again but incomplete
I gave my whole life to You, Yours alone I’d be
Even though I set apart, every portion of my heart
There is a hunger deep in me, something not yet free

Between the walls, I worship You, hollow sounds that ring untrue
Zealous heart that once was bold, now is growing cold
Once a fire, now a flame, fan it with Your Holy Name
Let my lips again proclaim, that Jesus Christ is King

Gimme a heart of fire, burnin’ flame
Fan it with Your holy name
Heart of fire burnin’ strong
Your love will carry us, carry us along

Inside my heart at depths unknown, once had mighty eagles flown
Now I sense a danger zone, come on Lord, and take your throne
Take me to the heights again, holy zeal again ascending
Victory shall flood my soul, and I shall rise again

More than say, I want to do, that’s what it means to follow You
Feed the hungry, clothe the poor, then my praise will count for more
One day at the throne of grace, I can look You in the face
Knowing I have run the race, and You will say well done

Gimme a heart of fire, burnin’ flame
Fan it with Your holy name
Heart of fire burnin’ strong
Your love will carry us, carry us along

Jesus see me on my knees, here I am just You and me
I am here, I won’t get up, till You fill my empty cup
Let your Spirit fall again, on my hardened heart and then
Together we shall stand, with burning hearts of fire

JESUS IS STANDING HERE
(Chuck Girard)

Jesus is standing here, His presence is in the air
Calling His people to draw near
Jesus is standing here, His presence is in the air
Calling His people to draw near

DRAWING NEAR LORD JESUS
DRAWING NEAR SWEET SPIRIT
DRAWING NEAR LORD JESUS, WE PRAY
DWELL WITH US, LORD JESUS
DWELL WITH US, SWEET SPIRIT
DWELL WITH US, LORD JESUS, DRAW NEAR

Jesus is reaching out, His glory is all about
Touching you deep in the darkness of your life
Jesus is reaching out, His glory is all about
Touching and binding the wounds
Of  your heart with the healing that
Flows from the glory of His light.

ENTER IN
(Chuck Girard)

CHORUS:

ENTER IN,
TO THE THRONE ROOM OF THE FATHER,
ENTER IN,
TO THE PRESENCE OF THE KING

Come behind the veil, and walk with Me,
In the cool of the day, I’ll walk with you.
For where I am is Paradise,
Look into My eyes, look into My eyes
How I long for you, as you long for Me
Won’t you take the time to visit for awhile,
For your precious presence,
Brings joy to My heart
Oh now my child, come on through

CHORUS

Come behind the veil, and be My love
In the secret place, I wait for you,
Be one with Me , for I’m in you,
And you’re in Me, and we are one
When you dwell with Me, and I dwell with you
All the pain life will surely have to flee
For between the wings of the cherubim
Is that place of peace that place of rest
Right here with Me

CHORUS
