1982 Omartian Odyssey

AIN’T YOU GLAD

 

I saw you the first time,

In the pouring rain.

You charmed me, you disarmed me,

And you eased my pain.

Now when the rain falls,

It’s like God calls – And he says your name

 

Oh ain’t you glad that our love, is here to stay.

Ain’t you glad there are oh so many ways.

To show you just how much I care.

I will always be there cause I love you.

Yes, I love you.

 

I woke up this morning,

And the sun was so high.

My heart knew as I saw you

Lying by my side,

That the real light brought in my life,

Was from your eyes.

 

Oh ain’t you glad that our love, is here to stay.

Ain’t you glad there are oh so many ways.

To show you just how much I care.

I will always be there cause I love you.

Yes, I love you.

 

Oh, ain’t you glad our love is here to stay.

Ain’t you glad it grows stronger every day.

MS PAST

 

Don’t look, don’t look back just let her go,

Lately, all she’s done is lay you low.

Don’t look, don’t look back just let her go,

Lately, all she’s done is lay you low.

 

Ms. Past, she’s such a wicked lady,

Ms. Past, she’s always there a waiting,

She’s the Devil’s favorite tool,

She’ll play you like a fool,

She’ll try until she rules.

 

Don’t look, don’t look back just let her go,

Lately, all she’s done is lay you low.

Don’t look, don’t look back just let her go,

Lately, all she’s done is lay you low.

 

Ms. Past, she’ll always try to feed you,

Ms. Past, she’ll say He never freed you.

But don’t fall for her disguise,

And look back in her eyes,

She wants you paralyzed, by all she knows.

 

Don’t look, don’t look back just let her go,

Lately, all she’s done is lay you low.

Don’t look, don’t look back just let her go,

Lately, all she’s done is lay you low.

 

Interlude

 

Don’t look, don’t look back just let her go,

Lately, all she’s done is lay you low.

Don’t look, don’t look back just let her go,

Lately, all she’s done is lay you low.

etc. etc. etc….

ANYTHING YOU ASK OF ME

 

I traveled the road to the end of myself,

While the trophies of life gathered dust on the shelf.

And I found that it just didn’t matter.

I found that I just didn’t care.

 

I looked at the struggle I’d carried in me.

And somehow I knew I could never be free.

Till I came to the foot of the cross.

Came to the foot of the tree,

And laid it down there.

 

So anything you ask of me,

Anything you ask you know I will do it.

Anything you want of me,

Anything you want I’ll give to you.

If you ask me to, I will.

 

I structured my days with a clever design,

But the plan I laid out weren’t His, they were mine.

And I saw that it just wouldn’t happen.

I saw that it never would be.

 

I picked up the life I’d driven astray,

Cause life isn’t life till you give it away.

And came to the arms of the Savior.

Came to the feet of my Lord,

And laid it down there.

 

I laid it down there.

So anything you ask of me,

Anything you ask you know that I will do it.

Anything you want of me,

Anything you want I’ll give to you.

If you ask me to, I will.

I will

BIG TIME

 

Opening dialogue……………………..

 

Song:

It doesn’t matter if it’s rock or pop,

As long as I can make it to the top.

I don’t know why the Lord can’t see,

 What it would do for Him if I could just be,

Big Time.

 

I won’t talk about Jesus,

That would be going too far.

I know that they will see Him,

In my guitar.

 

(Chorus)

 

Christian Superstar,

That is what you are,

I’ve got to be Big Time,

Christian Superstar,

That is what you are.

 

Well the folks will get saved,

They will have no choice,

When they see,

I’ve got the greatest voice.

 

(Chorus)

 

I play good,

I look good,

I am good,

That’s why I have to be,

Big Time.

 

Closing Dialogue………………………….

SEASONS OF THE SOUL

 

Whenever Summer dreams start to fade and lose their light,

And when the Spring in your heart seems so cold, it can’t be right,

And you feel like you’ve lost control,

And the valley’s seem so low,

Well it’s not forever, just a season of the soul.

 

If you could step away just to see how far you’ve gone,

If you would take the time just to be what you’ve become,

You could have the time to grow,

There would be a chance to know,

That it’s not forever, just a season of the soul.

 

Oh, it’s the season of the soul

It’s the season of the soul,

It’s the season of the soul,

It’s the season.

 

Walkin alone in the desert at night, searching for the rain,

How can this happen to me it’s not right, when Jesus is my friend,

Everything was going fine,

I was standing on the line,

Where did I go wrong?

Suddenly the sky was gray,

Looking like it was gonna stay,

Far too long.

 

Up on a mountain I heard His sigh, like an angel’s call,

If you don’t rest when the Winter is here, what will you bear in the Fall,

A time to cry, a time to sing,

There’s a time for everything,

Nothing lasts that long.

Don’t look at what you see,

And just keep your eyes on Me,

I won’t let you go wrong.

 

So when you look for the voice that you’ve known, and no one’s there,

And when it seems the caretaker’s heart, just doesn’t care,

It’s the seasons of the soul,

It’s the seasons of the soul,

Well it’s not forever – It’s the seasons of the soul.

JEREMIAH

 

Jeremiah, how your people cry.

What’s the answer? Don’t let it change the way we live or die.

No matter where you run,

You’ve got to pay for what you’ve done.

 

Obadiah, open Edom’s eyes.

Heaven’s fire will soon be laid upon your earthbound lives.

Let there be no doubt,

You’re going to get what you give out.

 

I could set you free,

But you must turn back to me

 

Tell it over and over and over and over again,

Tell it over and over and over and over again.

 

Zephaniah, sell your prophecy.

Heavy buyer, tear down the bed of your idolatry.

Hearts that turn to gold,

Will be turned to hearts of stone.

 

I could set you free,

But you must turn back to me.

 

Jeremiah, how great your pain must be,

To have the answer, and yet the people still refuse to see.

Let there be no doubt,

There is only one way out.

 

I Could set you free,

But you must turn back to me.

.

SEE THIS HOUSE

 

See this house I’ve built.

It stands so strong,

It took so long.

 

Placed so high on this hill.

No one sees in,

They never will.

 

Board by board I willed the walls into place,

And the roof went on with my dreams.

As nice as it is on the outside,

You know it’s still not all what it seems.

 

Inside it’s all run down.

Lonely and bare,

Dark everywhere.

 

Confusion all around.

Things to be sold.

Love to be found.

 

Down the hall, that room’s been locked up for years.

And neglect has misplaced the key.

It’s full of memories I bought for a price,

At a time when nothing came free.

 

But you…….

Opened the door.

And there was light like there’s never been before.

Then you……

 

Gave me the key.

And there was love there to set me free and

Until you……..

I was like sand,

Blown out of hand

 

See this house I’ve built.

It stands so strong,

It took so long.

 

Inside it’s been made new.

It’s all I have.

It’s all for you.

.

IT ALL COMES DOWN TO YOU

 

Long racks or paperbacks and empty magazines,

That’s where a poor man looks for all his dreams.

When I saw there was no way to make my dreams come true,

That’s when it all came down to you.

 

How I searched for meaning in all the meaningless,

Just to find the sellers were all sold out,

When it was clear to me that love was overdue,

That’s when it all came down to you.

 

Now there’s a situation very close at hand,

And I know I don’t have what it takes to stand,

When I consider all I have to get me through,

That’s when it all comes down to you.

 

I can’t say that I’m not afraid of falling,

Whose more willing to run from it all, than me,

But I know for certain that your promises are true,

That’s why it all comes down to you,

That’s why it all comes down to you.

WHITE HORSE

 

Red moon shines on the burning tree.

Someone is taking my life from me.

Where is my family, the light of my day.

Someone has taken them all away.

 

I seem to remember someone saying,

The seal will be broken like a proud man’s back.

Look for the White Horse carrying life.

Tie the red cord around your soul.

 

Someone is waiting to take your hand.

Lead you under the promised land.

Wear his mark and he’ll let you buy.

Pay his price or you can’t survive.

 

It’s gone

It’s gone

It’s gone

 

I seem to remember someone saying,

The seal will be broken like a proud man’s back.

Look for the White Horse carrying life.

Tie the red cord around your soul.

 

Red moon shines on a burning tree.

Someone is taking my life from me.

The White Horse rides across the sky.

Those who don’t know Him will hope to die.

HERE HE COMES

 

Here He comes.

Here He comes for the last time.

Through the smog,

Here He comes for the last time.

 

Clear as the lightning flies out of the east sky,

Quick as a thief in the night.

 

Here He comes,

He will come for the last time.

Through the clouds,

He will come for the last time.

 

I’ll be here

I’ll be waiting

I’ll be here

I’ll be waiting

 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to tell you,

How to run your life.

But I believe the end is near.

What will you do if I’m right?

 

Carry On,

Carry on until it’s time.

Through the fire, every heart will be refined.

 

One will be watching and one will be sleeping,

One will be taken away.

 

Play your song,

Play it till it’s number one.

Through the night,

Play your song until it’s done.

 

Here He comes,

Here He comes for the last time.

See the signs,

Here He comes for the last time.

 

No one is better at keeping a promise,

What if he keeps it today.

 

He will come.

He will come for the last time.

Through the tears. He will come for the last time.

 

I’ll go up,

I’ll go up with Him.

I’ll go up,

I’ll go up with Him.

 

Go right ahead and do what they tell you,

Throw your seed to the wind.

But when your garden doesn’t grow,

Who will you turn to then?

 

Here He comes,

Here He comes for the last time.

Drink His Wine,

Mend your faith until it shines.

 

Sing your song,

Sing your song until it’s done.

Plant your hope,

Keep it growing toward the Son.

 

We’ll be here

We’ll be waiting

We’ll be here

We’ll be waiting here.
