LYRICS

Remember The Promise

I hear the echoes from the ancient battlegrounds
As clear as if it were today
Familar voices echo, rising from the dust
I can almost hear them say

One thing you cannot forget
This war is not over yet

Chorus
Remember the promise
Remember who it's from
Remember that its keeping
Is tied to what we've done
Breaking down the walls of pride
Listening to realize
That there's a love that's strong enough
Strong enough to lift us up
The message rises from the dust
Beckoning to all of us
Remember the promise

Ironclad in covenant our captain and our king
Come to wash the flood of filth away
Waiting for freedom only He can bring
How much longer Lord we pray

The day the family doesn't lie down in defeat
Is the day we win the battles in schools and on the streets

Repeat chorus
Remember the promise

I Stand All Amazed

I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me
Confused at the grace that so fully he profers me
I tremble to know that for me he was crucified
That for me, a sinner, he suffered, he bled and died

Chorus
Oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me
Enough to die for me
Oh, it is wonderful
Wonderful to me

I marvel that he would descend from his throne divine
To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine
That he should extend his great love unto such as I
Sufficient to own, to redeem, and to justify

Repeat chorus

I think of his hands pierced and bleeding to pay the debt
Such mercy, such love, such devotion can i forget
No, no, I will praise and adore at the mercy seat
Until at the glorified throne I kneel at his feet

Repeat chorus

Written by Charles H. Gabriel, 1856-1932

Beautiful

Look at all the signs
Look at all the shows
All the glamorous people
Who claim to know
What perfection is
What makes beauty stay
But when all the styles go out
And the labels fade away

Chorus
It's what you give that makes you beautifuk
It's how you live that makes your dreams come true
Keep your faith in this world
And let the light of the Lord shine through
That's what makes you beautiful

Nothing burns as bright
Nothing shimmers so
As the smile of a friend
When hope is running low
And how your hand feels warm
When you dry a tear
Love is still in fashion at the end of every year

Repeat chorus
Even roses fade away in the snow
But the beauty in your heart can always grow

Written and performed by Cherie Call

I'll Be

Blessed are the meek I told myself as I walked in
With all of my reservations where would I begin
Whispering from his wheelchair fighting hard to say
"I've waited here a long time; what will we do today?"

Chorus
I'll be your hands I'll be your feet
I'll be whatever you need
You'll be that ray of light and hope
When I can't see
We'll pick up all the pieces
When the world falls apart
I can help with what I have
Will (and) you can help me with my heart

I hardly even noticed an hour turn to three
Time had burned the boundaries enough for me to see
I was blinded by my own fars 'til I finally clued in
And I knew he did not need me as much as I did him

Repeat chorus
And if I ever get the chance to see his smile again
I hope that it's in heaven and I hope that I fit in
