The Lamb That Was Slain

I entered the gate
The pearl of great price
Into the throne room of God
The elders were singing
The angels were winging
The sound of praise was alive

With Cherubim soaring
And Seraphim roaring
I fell on my knees in awe
For right there before me
In all of His glory
Was the precious Lamb of God

They sang blessing and glory
Honor and power
Unto the Lamb that was slain
Holy Holy
Lord God Almighty
Was the sound of their refrain

I joined in the chorus
With saints gone before us
‘Twas the sound of perfect praise
We lifted our hands
As the prayers of the ages
Rose before Him as sweet smelling grace

Our eyes beheld His glory
Our lips sang His praise
Our hearts leapt in worship
To the Lamb that was slain

We sang blessing and glory
Honor and power
Unto the Lamb that was slain
Holy Holy
Lord God Almighty
Was the sound of their refrain

Two Paths

I saw two paths before me both led a different way
Yet both looked so enticing the choice was mine to make
The first road led to pleasure in things this life could bring
I saw the people walking as funny songs they’d sing

Songs of playing games and of being insincere
Songs of being free to travel anywhere
No restriction hindered them there were no big mistakes
Fun was all they cared for this earth was their escape

The second path was harder demanding me to yield
To a greater force outside me that followed certain rules
The people walking this path seemed calm and free
They had a joy about them their peace was plain to see

The first path seemed to call me so carefree and so fun
The pleasures were everything I’d done
The second path was waiting for me to give my life
All my earthly lust would be sacrificed

Suddenly I got a glimpse at where the roads would end
My eyes were opened to the fact that this was not pretend
The choice I had to make would stamp my destiny
The roads both led to life for all eternity

The first road led to fire and horror at its worst
Once this life was over all pleasure would be lost
The second led to harmony with love that filled the air
No suffering or sadness would ever be found there

Two paths are waiting for you two paths you stand before
Pleasure for a moment or peace forevermore
These paths stretch out before you please make no mistake
The choice is up to you which road will you take

Our Destiny

The masks come out to hide the face
The costumes all are put in place
The pumpkins carved and lights ablaze
It’s Halloween again

The horror movies play all day
To honor fright and death’s decay
We laugh and cringe at such displays
It’s Halloween again

But there is something all must know
The scary thing is many don’t
That one day death will take its toll
Do you know where you’ll go

On one side hell is open wide
Where demons dwell and Satan hides
If we do not know Jesus Christ
This is our destiny

A lake of fire is the scene
Fire and brimstone in between
Our bodies there will shout and scream
For all eternity

But those are who’ve asked for God’s true grace
Who’ve trusted that Christ took their place
He has all their sin erased
They will be heaven bound

A robe of righteousness they’ll wear
The saints of old all gathered there
No more sickness, death or tears
Forever in His arms

Have you made the choice today
That God’s true Word you will obey
Ask Jesus to be Lord today
The choice is up to you

Oh The Blood

The blood of Jesus rescued me
From living Satan’s destiny
I am not longer bound to sin
His grace has washed me from within

The blood of Jesus purchased me
From living life in misery
I am no longer bound by shame
I am alive in Jesus name

Oh the blood
Oh the blood
Washes white as snow
Oh the blood
Oh the blood
By His blood I am made whole

The blood of Jesus made me free
Hell is not my destiny
I now am bound by His great love
A home in heaven waits above

Oh the blood
Oh the blood
Washes white as snow
Oh the blood
Oh the blood
By His blood I am made whole

Tell the World

Reign in the Heavens
Sweet Lamb of God
Twenty four elders
Praise ‘round your throne
Cherubim shout out
Holy are you
Seraphim fall down
Worship is due

Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the Lamb who was slain
Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the lamb who was slain

Rain down from Heaven
Spirit of God
Fill us with power
To tell of His love
Grant us your wisdom
Your words we seek
Fill us with boldness
To preach in the street

Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the Lamb who was slain
Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the lamb who was slain

He’s the one who gives us power
He’s the one who gives us strength
To tell the world
To tell the world
Of His great love

Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the Lamb who was slain
Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the lamb who was slain

A Plan For You

Do you feel like you are on this earth just to pass the time?
Do you think that this is all there is and there’s no reason why?
Do you think that once this life is o’er what’s left is just to die?
Is that what you’ve been listening to all of your life?

I’m here to tell you differently and help your eyes to see
There really is a plan for you there’s more for you to be
Don’t let this world beguile you to thinking you’re not free
To give your all and serve the Lord on High

For He’s the one that will determine where you go from here
You’re life will not be over once you shed that final tear
There’s heaven to gain and hell to shun the time is drawing near
Today accept the Savior Jesus Christ

Heaven’s Delight

He God commanded the Light to shine
The first day of creation
The fourth day the Sun moon and stars were made
He placed each in their station

So what was the Light that He made first
The one that He spoke into being
It was the Word of God come to illuminate all
From the darkness that had been reigning

Still today the sun moon and stars do shine
Dividing the day and the night
The first Light is still there to show us the way
From hell fire to heaven’s delight

Look to the Light of the World today
Jesus Christ the Word made flesh
He’ll take all your sorrows and sins away
And cover you with His grace

On My Knees

Praise the Lord
Worthy is He
I come before Him
Down on my knees
Seeking His mercy
Longing for grace
Hoping that soon
I’ll see His face

Jesus my Savior
You’re me redeemer
Lamb of God died for the sins of the world
Rose again bringing
Eternal Life to me
Sending your Spirit to reveal the Word

Praise the Lord
Glorious in splendor
Worship His holiness
Forevermore
Seated in heaven
All creatures before Him
Bowing their heads
Falling down on their knees

Jesus my Savior
You’re me redeemer
Lamb of God died for the sins of the world
Rose again bringing
Eternal Life to me
Sending your Spirit to reveal the Word

Down on my knees
I sing hallelujah
Down on my knees
My head bowed down low
Broken before Him
Needing forgiveness
Worthy of nothing
Have mercy on me

A Resounding Change

My ears are often funny|
In looks and sounds I fear
There is a constant ringing
That is often all I hear

I can’t wait to get to heaven
That ringing sound will change
To the titinnabulnation
Of the angel chorus praise

Holy holy holy
Great and powerful is He
Jesus Christ our mighty Savior
By His blood He set us free

Holy holy holy
To the Lamb upon the throne
Great in Majesty and Mercy
Our praise to Him alone

Planning on Heaven

I’d always been planning on heaven
Ever since I was a lad
My church taught that we
Would go there for free
For Jesus had paid the tab

Then I learned there was one complication
That I had not learned before
If I don’t repent
My sins won’t relent
Jesus must be made my Lord

So I knelt down there in the church pew
I asked Jesus into my heart
He took away
My sin stains that day
He gave me a brand new start
