On The Sea Of Life
Bob Angel/TS Sloan/Inspirations Quartet Music Co/BMI

Where the saved of all the earth, now abide,
Leaving all our trials here many treasures wait us there,
When we’ve crossed the foam and reached the other side,

Chorus
Sailing…………………………..
We are sailing onward, sailing sailing all day long
On……………………………….
We are clinging to our captain as the angry billows foam
Sailing………………………….
Soon, yes, soon we’ll reach the harbor and be safe beyond the tide
To……………………………….
We are going onward to
The other side

Verse II
Many millions now abide in that home beyond the tide
Where the ransomed pilgrims wait free from care
There is room on board for all who will heed the captain’s call
And take ship for heavens country bright and fair

When my heart is broken from this worlds demands,
The pieces are mended with one scarred hand.

And when I can’t see, I must believe,
The great physicians touch, is the balm that can,
Mend broken hearts, with one scarred hand.

It’s the hand that hung this old world in place,
It’s the hand that was scarred just to give me grace,
And to think a hand that holds the stars,
Is small enough to mend one broken heart.

Mend broken hearts, with one scarred hand.

Look What I’m Trading For A Mansion
Paul and Beverly Chitwood/Chestnut Mound/BMI

Who had lived out her life here on earth,
As she lay on her deathbed her friends gathered round her,
And these were the last words she said….

Oh look what I’m leaving behind,
Oh look who will be there to greet me,

For I’ve traded it all for that mansion,
That Jesus has gone to prepare.

The Lighthouse
Ronald A Hinson/Journey Music/BMI

Verse I
Oh there’s a lighthouse on the hillside,
That overlooks life’s sea,
When I’m tossed it sends out a light,

And the light that shines in darkness now,
Will safely lead me o’er,
If it wasn’t for the lighthouse,
My ship would sail no more.

Chorus
And I thank God for the lighthouse,
I owe my life to Him,
For Jesus is the lighthouse,
And from the rocks of sin,
He has shone a light around me,
That I could clearly see,
If it wasn’t for the lighthouse,
Tell me where, would this ship be.

Verse II
Everybody that lives around us,
Says tear that ole lighthouse down,
The big ships don’t sail this anymore,
There’s no use of it standing round,
But then my mind goes back to that stormy night,
When just in time, I saw the light,
Yes the light from that old lighthouse,
That stands up there on the hill.

If it wasn’t for the lighthouse,
Tell me where, would this ship be.

No hope within could I see,
They searched through Heaven,

His hand will lead me safe o're
I'll join the chorus in that great city
And sing up there for evermore.

I Can, I Have, I Will
Kyla Rowland Christian Taylor Music / BMI
 
VERSE 1
So many times our friends will tell us I won't let you down.
And when the storms are threatening danger, they cannot be found.
But there's a friend whose name is Jesus and His promise is real.
There is no doubt He'll bring me out when He says I will.
 
VERSE 2
The enemy can make me tremble, make me so afraid.
I'll wrestle Satan through the night till the breaking of the day.
With just the strength to look toward Heaven, glory is revealed.
He stands there waiting gently saying, child you know I will.
 
CHORUS
I will, fight all of your battles, give them all to Me.
I can, make all of your trials, end in victory.
I have, all power and glory, it is Mine to give.
O what a blessing, I am resting for He says I will.

No Place That Far

If I dwell in the depth of the sea
In the darkest dungeon or on the highest mountain

Leave Your Past At Jesus' Feet
Sandy Blythe/Blythe Music Group/BMI

Yesterday has come and gone, but you remember still
Every sin and every failure, it's a hurt that just won't heal
Each day you are reliving each painful memory
But a child of God should never bear that kind of misery

Leave your past at Jesus' feet and your future in His hands
Your past will never be remembered again
Don't worry about tomorrow, He'll give you grace to stand
Leave your past at Jesus' feet and your future in His hands
 
Verse II
You're crying out for mercy, and in love He's looking down
Can't you hear Him say, What sins are you talking about
You've already been forgiven, now you must forgive yourself

His feet still bear the marks, of the pain that He went thru
His hands are still nail scarred, from the shame He bore for you

Come Forth As Gold
Sandy Blythe/Blythe Music Group/BMI
 
Verse I
All of his family, all of his wealth was gone in a moment
And soon his body was racked with pain from his head to his feet
Even his wife said, Curse God and die, but he held on to faith
For Job said I trust, His word, He knows the way that I take
 
Chorus:
I may not see Him, but He's watching me
Though I don't understand, He knows where I am,
and that's all that I need
I can't feel Him now, but He's with me I know
After I'm tried and tested by fire, I'll come forth as gold
 
Verse II
Each time I open the Word and read of Job's test of faith
It gives me new strength, 'cause right now it seems God is
so far away
On the left and the right, He's no where in sight, but one
thing I know
His promise is true, and when this trial's thru, I'll come forth as gold

Joy In The Morning
C. A. Wilburn/Word Music LLC

Verse 1
Tears often fall, from my face in sorrow,
As I walk on, thru the long, lonely night,
And often I cry, yet it seems no one hears me,
And then thru the shadows I can see, the dawning of light.

Chorus
Tho shadows may fall, and my cross gets heavy,
And sometimes it seems, I'll never see another day dawning,
Then I remember His Word, tho the night finds me weeping,
He promised me, and surely there'll be, joy in the morning.

Verse 2
Now, soon this life, and all of its trials,
Will be left behind, there's another day dawning,
And shadows of sin, will vanish forever,
And forever I'll find, where the sun always shines, joy in the morning.

You’re the remedy for my condition
Come make me whole – Oh Great Physician
