1978 Breakin’ The Ice

Got to Believe

by Randy Thomas & Rick Thomson


Got to believe in somethin’,
Got to believe that somethin’s there;
Got to believe in someone,
Got to believe that someone cares for you.

Got to believe in somethin’,
Got to believe that somethin’s there;
Got to believe in someone,
Got to believe that someone cares for you.
Got to believe.

‘Cause if nobody cares,
Then there’s nothing to share
Why are you so afraid?
If we’re born just to die,
Well, then why even try
Are you living to take the blame?

Why don’t you make up your mind?
Keep on seeking, you will find.
Believe it, oh, believe it!
Even though it’s not your style,
Think on it a little while,
Believe it, oh, believe it!
REPEAT

Breakin’ the Ice

By Bob Wilson


Breakin’ the ice with love,
We’re meltin’ away stone cold hearts from a winter’s day.
Breakin’ the ice with love.
Releasing the binds that’s held man
From the start of time.

It’s so easy to do
When God’s love is with you
And is living in.
And you’ll come to find
It’s just a matter of time
When love begins breakin’ the ice.

Sure as a flower needs to have rain,
Man’s need for love is jus the same;
Sure as the sunrise starts each new day,
With heaven’s love you’ll find the way.

Young Girl

By Bryan Duncan


She’s just a young girl
And she has much to learn
About what the people call livin’,
Educated through movies
And books in the drugstore,
The radio backs them all day.
She’s just a young girl
And she knows what she needs
But doesn’t quite know where to find.
She’s following visions
Of romantic lovers,
And happiness that sells for a dime.

CHORUS:
Oh, why don’t you look to the Author of livin’
And find out what He has to give?
Well, look to the Father of heaven and earth
And you’ll find He has the time,
All the time for you.

She’s hopelessly lost in a world of division
With no one to tell her the problem;
She’s chasing the lights that are fading in darkness
And taking her dreams right beside them.
(REPEAT CHORUS)

Melody, Harmony

by Sam O. Scott, Randy Thomas, Rick Thomson


Every melody has a simple harmony.
Now I told ya!
Every harmony’s got to have a melody,
That’s right!
But the song don’t mean a thing
If there ain’t no one to sing it,
I told ya!
If there ain’t no one to sing it,
The song don’t mean a thing.
That’s right!

CHORUS:
We are the children of The Mighty,
We are the apple of His eye;
We are the image of The Maker.
We are the song of The Most High.
Can you hear it?
Can you hear it?
(You’ve got to listen now)
Can you hear it?
Can you hear it?
Well, the song ain’t worth a dime,
If the lyrics never rhyme.
Now I told ya!
If the lyrics never rhyme

Then the song ain’t worth a dime,
That’s right!’
The tune will never do
If the message isn’t true
Now I told ya!
If the message isn’t true
Then the tune will never do.
That’s right!
We’ve got to learn to love again,
We’ve got to learn to love again.
Without You we’re like a song without a melody,
A word without a rhyme.

Can; you hear it? Can you hear it?
(You’ve got to listen now)
Can you hear it? Can you hear it?
Can you hear it? We’re the image of the Maker.
Can you hear it? We’re the song of the Most High.

I Need Your Love Again

by Bryan Duncan


Well, I’ve been out of love so long
That my life was just a line;
And bitterness and empty found my feelings.
I’ve been out of touch so long
That the world was just a ride;
That took me through a life that held me captive.

CHORUS:
Well, I need Your love again,
You’re the ink inside my pen,
Without You I’m a man without a reason.
Well, I need Your love again,
You’re the race I have to win,
Losing You would surely change my destiny.

I’ve been out of love so long
That my heart became a stone’
Insensitive to those who bleed around me.
I’ve been out of reach so long
That my mind became my own’
And all the time I had was spent self-pleasing.

You’re the source of all I am,
The Light inside my mind,
And the freshness of a newfound song.
You’re the happy ending without an end
A smile from One who cares,
Anticipation of unending life with You.

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Good Feelin’

by Rick Thomson & Randy Thomas


When you’re tied up to the dock
‘Cause you just can’t stay afloat
Alone at sea,
Sail with someone else. Okay!
When you’re tired of feelin’ lost
And you finally count the cost,
You’re short of change,
Give it all away. Yeah!

CHORUS:
‘Cause it’s a good feelin’,
It’s all right!
It’s a good feelin’,
Day and night!
It’s a good feelin’
To give your life away.
It’s a good feelin’,
Day and night!
It’s a good feelin’,
It’s all right.
It’s a good feelin’
To give your life away.

When your life becomes unjust
And your dreams
Have turned to dust in your own hands,
Leave them where they fall.
When you’re all tired up in knots
And you can’t collect the thoughts
In your own mind.
Give your mind a rest. Yeah!
(REPEAT CHORUS)

Give your life away
Give your life away
Give your life away.

Searchin’ for Love

by Bryan Duncan, Randy Thomas


You can search for a thousand lifetimes
And still never find it all;
The reason The Maker cares for,
In spite of the seekers fall.
Love is the ultimate creation
From the heart of The Morning Star;
And you are the pearl that it paid for,
Knowing everything you are.

In the hands of deceivers
Love becomes a tool of war,
But still in the eyes of believers
The power of God is more.
But still in the eyes of believers
The power of God is more.

Searchin’ for love,
Searchin’ for love,
Searchin’ for love,
Searchin’ for love.

Love is the ultimate creation
From the heart of The Morning Star;
You are the pearl that it paid for,
Knowing everything you are.

Go ahead and misuse it,
It won’t get ya very far;
It’s intended to go with The Keeper,
The one who made you everything you are.
It’s intended to go with The Keeper,
The one who made you everything you are.
Searchin’ for love,
Searchin’ for love,
Searchin’ for love,
Searchin’ for love.

The Lord is Calling

by Randy Thomas & Rick Thomson


Well your childhood days,
Your high school ways
Didn’t help you too much,
Never gave you no touch,
And you wouldn’t take it!
Well there’ll be hell to pay
If you get your way,
And make your life a mess
And all your deeds confess,
That you’ll never make it.

CHORUS:
And the Lord is callin’ you home again,
Yes, the Lord is callin’ you home again.
Home again.
You’re a stranger in a crowd.
A dark and rainless cloud.
You’re a spirit in the tomb.
A child inside the womb.

When you try it alone,
Your heart is a stone,
You’ve always got an excuse,
What’s the us,
If no one believes it?
Life’s an empty cup,
At the bottom looking up,
How’s your point of view?
Jesus still loves you,
If you can conceive it.

CHORUS:
And the Lord is callin’ you home again,
Yes, the Lord is callin’ you home again.
The Lord is callin’ you back home again,
The Lord is callin’ you back home again,
The Lord is callin’ you back home again,
Why don’t you answer?
The Lord I callin’ you,
The Lord Is callin’ you back,
The Lord is callin’ you back home.
(REPEAT CHORUS)

I Love You with My Life

by Bryan Duncan


I would like to say,
Just before I leave you,
I’ll be back someday,
And with me I will take you
So do not be afraid,
Only watch and pray,
And wait for my return.

I’ve done what I must do,
My work here is completed,
It’s all been done for you,
Believe what I have stated,
And I will give you peace
Through all your tribulations,
Until I come again.

CHORUS:
Please now that I love you,
I’ll stay by your side.
If only now in spirit,
I’ll still be your guide.
You will not suffer long,
For I have suffered for you,
I love you with my life.

I’ll prepare a place
Where we can live together,
I’ll meet you face to face,
To share our new forever.
Don’t let your love grow cold,
And I will not allow
What’s more than you can bear.
CHORUS:

Love you with my life.
