I'm Plantin' A Seed

I'm plantin' a seed, way down deep in the earth
When's it gonna come up? I don't know.
Only the Lord can make it grow
When's it gonna come up? I don't know.
Only the Lord can make it grow

Chorus:
Maybe in a week, maybe in a year
My little seedling will appear
Spreadin' out it's branches, sinkin' down it's roots
Bearing lots of healthy fruit.

I'm waterin' my seed, that's way down deep in the earth
When's it gonna come up? I don't know.
Only the Lord can make it grow
When's it gonna come up? I don't know.
Only the Lord can make it grow (chorus)

I'm prayin' for my seed, that's way down deep in the earth
When's it gonna come up? I don't know.
Only the Lord can make it grow
When's it gonna come up? I don't know.
Only the Lord can make it grow (chorus)

 

The Baby Of Bethlehem

(from Luke 2, Matt 1-2, John 1, Isaiah, Revelations)
Key of C to D, a brand new Christmas carol,
focusing on the overwhelming gift
God gave to us through Jesus


Anointed One, Messiah, Lord
Savior, Christ, Good News, Great Joy
Eternal God, now dwelling with man
The Baby of Bethlehem, the Baby of Bethlehem

Immanuel, the Father's Son
Shepherd, Ruler, Mighty One
Descended to Earth, according to plan
The Baby of Bethlehem, the Baby of Bethlehem

BRIDGE:
With angels we sing Your glory
With shepherds we give God praise
With wisemen we come before You
To worship You all our days

The Word, now flesh, in Him is life
One and Only, shining Light
Full grace and truth, we now understand
The Baby of Bethlehem, the Baby of Bethlehem

Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace
Wonderful Couns'lor, King of Kings
No end there will be to Your increase
The Baby of Bethlehem, the Baby of Bethlehem (bridge)

Alpha and Omega, Master and Friend
God's all in all, Forgiver of sin
Creator, Designer, Beginning and End
The Baby of Bethlehem, the Baby of Bethlehem

All glory, honor, blessing and strength
Wisdom and power, mercy and grace
Past, present and future contained in his hands
The Baby of Bethlehem, the Baby of Bethlehem
         The Baby of Bethlehem

Set An Example
I Timothy 4:12

Don't let anyone look down on you
    because you are young,
      because you are young
But set an example for the believers
    in speech, in life, in love, in faith
        and in unity.
First Timothy four, verse twelve

 

Land That Drinks In The Rain

God Made You
words by Sandra Methe and Ralph Merrifield
Music by Ralph Merrifield

God made you, God made me
To work together in harmony
Some parts are big, others small
But to the Lord it doesn't matter at all
But to the Lord it doesn't matter at all

We're different colors, different shapes
Different years, models and makes
Different gifts, talents and strengths
But serving the Lord as one,
Building His body in love (yes!)
(repeat to the beginning)

As the years go by
may you always remember
I love you with all my heart

More than anything
I want you to know

I Am The Vine
(from John 15)

I am the vine, you are the branches
He who abides in Me and I in him
He it is that bears much fruit
For apart from Me you can do nothing

If you abide in Me and My words abide in you
Ask what you will and it shall be given to you

I am the vine, you are the branches
He who abides in Me and I in him
He it is that bears much fruit
For apart from Me you can do nothing

As I Lay Down In Peace

As I lay down in peace,
upon my bed to sleep

my heart is content

How Blessed Is The Man
(a sanctified blues rendition of Psalm 1)

Don't walk with the wicked,  don't sit with the scoffer
Don't stand with the sinner,  they've nothin' to offer

How blessed is the man,
how blessed is the man
Who puts his trust in
the Law of the Lord

He is like a tree planted by water
Bears fruit in it's season, it's leaf never withers (chorus)

In all that he does the righteous will prosper
Not so for the wicked, they're headin' for disaster (chorus)

 

How Beautiful You Are
(From Song Of Solomon)

I will rejoice in you and be glad, oh so glad
I will delight in your presence, how beautiful you are
With such great excitement my spirit arises
To hear Your sweet voice
I belong to You beloved,
and You are mine

How beautiful you are I just can't get enough
Day after day and moment by moment
I desire more of your love (repeat to beginning)

 

Faithful Is The Lord

Faithful is the Lord
More faithful than the rising sun
In the morning, in the morning

Steadfast Your love
Grateful are we
Your servants, Your servants

 

God Will Take Care Of You

God will take care of you,
God will take care of me

I'll follow Him for now and eternity (repeat)


He Has Shown

He has shown you what is good
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justice, to love kindness,
to walk humbly with your God

Like a Shepherd He will tend his flock
In His arms He will gather the Lambs
And carry them in His bosom

Such great love He has for us
His strength is our joy and rest

In Your arms You will gather the Lambs

You're such a great
and forgiving God
