AMAZING GRACE JESUS, MY LORD LORD OF THE DANCE
BLOWIN' IN THE WIND JESUS IS THE ROCK PASS IT ON
THE BUILDING BLOCK LEAN ON ME SEEK YE FIRST
DAY IS DONE LESS OF ME SEEK AND YOU SHALL FIND
DAY BY DAY LET IT BE STAND BY ME
FOREVER YOUNG LIGHT ONE CANDLE TELL THE PEOPLE
LIGHT OF THE WORLD LONELY PEOPLE WEAVE ME THE SUNSHINE

AMAZING GRACE

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now am found, was blind, but now I see.

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come.
'Tis grace that brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

When we've been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we'd first begun.

 

BLOWIN' IN THE WIND

How many roads must a man walk down
Before they call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
How many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
chorus:
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
How many years must a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea?
How many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
How many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn't see? chorus
How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
How many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
How many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

 

THE BUILDING BLOCK

chorus:
The building block (building block) that was rejected,
Became the cornerstone of a whole new world. (2x)

When I am down and unsuspected, with a burden that does not show,
I think what time has resurrected and how the sun can make the water flow. chorus

There is a man who has collected all the sorrow in our eyes.
He gives us love as God directed, but is seldom recognized. chorus

When all your dreams have been connected and your vision has been returned,
Remember, love, you are protected by the truth your heart has learned. chorus

The building block (building block) that was rejected became the cornerstone, became the cornerstone, became the cornerstone of a whole new world.

 

DAY BY DAY

Day by day, day by day,
O dear Lord, three things I pray:
To see thee more clearly, love thee more dearly, follow thee more nearly,
Day by day.

 

DAY IS DONE

Tell me why you're crying, my son.
I know you're frightened like everyone.
Is it the thunder in the distance you fear?
Will it help if I stay very near? I am here.

chorus:
And if you take my hand, my son, all will be well when the day is done.
And if you take my hand, my son, all will be well when the day is done.
Day is done (when the day is done) Day is done (when the day is done)
Day is done (when the day is done) When the day is done

You ask me why I'm sighing my son.
You shall inherit what mankind has done.
In a world filled with sorrow and woe.
If you ask me why this is so,
I really don't know. chorus

Tell me why you're smiling, my son
Is there a secret you can tell everyone?
Do you know more than men that are wise?
Can you see what we all must disguise, through your loving eyes? chorus

 

FOREVER YOUNG

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.

May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
And may you stay forever young.

chorus:
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the light surrounding you.

May you always be courageous
Stand up right and be as strong
And may you stay forever young. chorus (2x)

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift.

May your heart always be joyful
May your song always be sung
And may you stay forever young. chorus (2x)

May you grow up righteous and true,
See the light surrounding you
May you grow up righteous and true,
See the light surrounding you
May you ...(repeating) with chorus

 

I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD

chorus:
I am the light of the world; you people come and follow me.
If you follow and see, you'll learn the mystery,
Of what you can do and you can be.

To find a lost and lonely man, to heal a broken soul with love;
To feed the hungry children with warmth and good food,
To feel the earth below, the sky above. chorus

To bring hope to every task you do, to dance at every baby's birth;
To bring the sound of music to some old man's heart,
To sing the brilliant colors of the earth. chorus

To free the prisoner from his chains, to make the powerful ones agree;
To rebuild all the nations with strength and goodwill,
To call a man your brother anywhere. chorus

 

JESUS, MY LORD

chorus:
Have you seen Jesus my Lord, he's here in plain view
Take a look, open your eyes, he'll show it to you.

Have you ever looked at the sunset
With the sky mellowin' red
And the clouds suspended like feathers?
Then I'd say you've seen Jesus my Lord. chorus

Have you ever stood at the ocean
With the white foam at your feet,
Felt the endless thunderin' motion?
Then I'd say you've seen Jesus my Lord. chorus:

Have you ever looked at the cross
With a man hanging in pain
Seen the look of love in his eyes?
Then I'd say you've seen Jesus my Lord. chorus

Have you ever stood in the family,
With the Lord there in your midst
Seen the face of Christ on your brother/sister?
Then I'd say you've seen Jesus my Lord. chorus

Have you ever stood in the chapel
With the Lord there by your side
Touched the hand of someone beside you
Then I'd say you've seen Jesus my Lord. chorus

 

JESUS IS THE ROCK 'N HE ROLLS MY BLUES AWAY

chorus: Jesus is the rock 'n he rolls my blues away (3x)

When you're out on the street and you really feel down and low
When you're out on the street and there's just no place to go
When you're out on the street, well Jesus gonna save your soul. chorus

When you wake up in the morning and the sky ain't bright and blue
When you wake up in the morning and the big world's after you
When you wake up in the morning, Jesus is gonna pull you through. chorus

When you look in the mirror and your face causes it to crack
When you're through with your day and you feel like you've been attacked,
Well, Jesus gonna love you and baby, now that's a fact. chorus

 

LEAN ON ME

Sometimes in our lives, we all have pain, we all have sorrow;
But, if we are wise, we know that there's always tomorrow.

chorus:
Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend, I'll help you carry on (lean on me)
For, it won't be long 'til I'm gonna need somebody to lean on.

Please, swallow your pride, if I have things you need to borrow
For no one can feel, those other needs that you won't let show. chorus

So just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on. chorus

If there is a load you have to bear that you can't carry
I'm right up the road, I'll share the load, if you just call me. chorus

So just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on. chorus

 

LESS OF ME

Let me be a little kinder, let me be a little blinder
To the faults of those about me, let me praise a little more.
Let me be when I am weary just a little bit more cheery,
Think a little more of others and a little less of me.

Let me be a little braver when temptation bids me waver
Let me strive a little harder to be all that I should be.
Let me be a little meeker with my brother who is weaker
Let me think more of my neighbor and a little less of me.

Let me be when I am weary, just a little bit more cheery
Let me serve a little better those that I am praying for.
Let me be a little meeker with my sister who is weaker
Think a little more of others and a whole lot less of me.

 

LET IT BE

When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me,
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness, she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

chorus:
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree,
There will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted, there is still a chance that they will see,
There will be an answer, let it be. chorus

And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be chorus

 

LIGHT ONE CANDLE

chorus:
Don't let the light go out
It's lasted for so many years
Don't let the light go out
Let it shine through our love and our tears

Light one candle for the Maccabee children
With thanks that their light didn't die
Light one candle for the pain they endured
When their right to exist was denied.
Light one candle for the terrible sacrifice
Justice and freedom demand
Light one candle for the wisdom to know
When the peacemaker's time is at hand. chorus

Light one candle for the strength that we need
To never become our own foe.
And light one candle for those who are suffering
Pain we learned so long ago
Light one candle for all we believe in,
That anger not tear us apart
And light one candle to find us together
With peace as the song in our hearts. chorus (2x)

What is the memory that's valued so highly
That we keep it alive in that flame
What's the commitment to those who have died
That we cry out they've not died in vain
We have come this far always believing
That justice will somehow prevail
This is the burden, this is the promise
This is why we will not fail. chorus (2x)

Don't let the light go out.
Don't let the light go out.
Don't let the light go out.

 

LONELY PEOPLE

This is for all the lonely people
Thinking that life has passed them by.
Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup
And ride that highway in the sky.

This is for all the single people
Thinking that love has left them dry.
Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup
You'll never know until you try.

Well, I'm on my way, yes, I'm back to stay
Well, I'm on my way back home.

This is for all the searching people
Thinking that God has passed them by.
Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup.
He'll never put you down, he'll never give you up.
You'll never know until you try.

 

LORD OF THE DANCE

I danced in the morning when the world was begun,
And I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun,
I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth,
At Bethlehem, I had my birth.

chorus:
Dance, then, wherever you may be
I am the Lord of the dance, said he
And I'll lead you all wherever you may be
And I'll lead you all in the dance said he.

I danced for the Scribes and the Pharisees,
But they wouldn't dance and they wouldn't follow me;
I danced for the fishermen, for James and John;
They came with me and the dance went on. chorus

I danced on the Sabbath and I cured the lame,
The holy people said it was a shame.
They whipped and they stripped and they hung me high,
And left me there on the cross to die. chorus

I danced on Friday when the sky turned black.
It's hard to dance with the devil on your back
They buried my body, and thought I'd gone,
But I am the dance, and I still go on. chorus

They cut me down, and I leapt up high,
I am the life that will never, never die,
I'll live in you if you live in me.
I am the Lord of the dance, said he. chorus

 

PASS IT ON

It only takes a spark to get a fire going
And soon all those around can warm up to its glowing.
That's how it is with God's love
Once you've experienced it,
You spread his love to everyone
You want to pass it on.

What a wondrous time is spring, when all the trees are budding.
The birds begin to sing, the flowers start their blooming.
That's how it is with God's love, once you've experienced it.
You want to sing, it's fresh like spring, you want to pass it on.

I wish for you, my friend, this happiness that I've found.
You can depend on him, it matters not where you're bound.
I'll shout it from the mountaintop (praise God)
I want the world to know;
The Lord of love has come to me; I want to pass it on.
I'll shout it from the mountaintop (praise God)
I want the world to know;
The Lord of love has come to me; I want to pass it on.

 

SEEK YE FIRST

Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness
And all these things will be added unto you; Allelu, Alleluia

Ask and it shall be given unto you, seek and ye shall find
Knock and the door shall be opened unto you; Allelu, Alleluia

Take not thought saying, "What shall we eat?" or "What shall we drink?"
or "With what shall we be clothed?" Allelu, Alleluia

Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word
That proceeds from the mouth of God; Allelu, Alleluia

If any one should want to follow me, let him deny himself,
Take up his cross and daily follow me, Allelu, Allelluia.

 

STAND BY ME

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
I won't be afraid, no, I won't be afraid,
Just as long as you stand, stand by me.

chorus:
So darlin', darlin', stand by me
Stand by me
Oh stand, stand by me.

If the sky we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won't cry, I won't cry, I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me. chorus, instrumental, chorus

 

SEEK AND YOU SHALL FIND
chorus:
Seek and you shall find, hey, knock and the door shall be opened,
Ask and it shall be given, and the love comes a tumblin' down, and he says…

My Father the Lord has spoken (3x) and the love comes a tumblin' down, and he says chorus

My brother the Lord has been here (3x) and the love comes a tumblin' down, and he says chorus

My Lord he died on Calvary (3x) and the love comes a tumblin' down, and he says chorus

Ah yes, but he rose on Easter (3x) and the love comes a tumblin' down and he says chorus

 

TELL THE PEOPLE

chorus:
Tell the people I love them, tell the people I care,
When they feel far away from me, tell the people I'm there.

Last night Jesus came to me, wiped the tears from my eyes,
He said not to worry, he would stay by my side. chorus

Then he looked out upon the world, in the darkness of night,
Then he turned and he spoke to me, oh how sadly he sighed. chorus

When I walked upon Calvary, and I poured out my life,
I died for each one of them, so that they might have life. chorus

I will always remember when he came to me,
For once I was blind, but now I see. chorus

 

 

WEAVE ME THE SUNSHINE

chorus:
Weave, weave, weave me the sunshine, out of the falling rain;
Weave me the hope of a new tomorrow, and fill my cup again.

They say that the tree of loving, shine on me again;
They say it grows on the bank of the river of suffering, shine on me again. chorus

If only I could heal your sorrow, shine on me again;
I'd help you to find your new tomorrow, shine on me again chorus

I've seen the steel and the concrete crumble, shine on me again
The proud and the mighty all have stumbled, shine on me again. chorus

Only you can climb that mountain, shine on me again;
If you want a drink from the golden fountain, shine on me again. chorus
