Call You By Name

I thought I knew You
Many things about You
But not the one that I should

I read Your word
And my ears what they heard
I feel it’s not all that I could

Your works are well known
And Your prophets have shown
That the righteous shall live by faith

Your Will shall be done
Cause dear El’ You the One
It’s to You that my heart and sould prays

So When I call out
With my voise a great shout
In a song, Hallelu-YaH, I sing

There’s a place in that phrase
That alone gives you Praise
And it’s found in a verse in a psalm

All the Patriarchs knew
The Apostles did too
And the people they all did the same

If someone should ask
Are we up for the task
With the strength to annouce You by name

‘aNee HaL ‘EL, MaL’a SHaLoWM
‘aNee HaL ‘EL, ‘A-oWLaM

Your word said a few
Would be given a clue
By the tug that is placed on their hearts

They’ll neither reject
And they’ll stand to protect
What the Spirit You gave to impart

Through the masses have turned away
Yet we the few will stay
Exalting You and Your Fame

From our lips it shall flow
In our eyes it will show
Joy just to Call You By Name

We praise You ‘EL, full of peace
We praise You ‘EL, eternally

He Didn’t give up on Me

Once I was so filled with love I had to pass it out
I gave so much thought that I would dry up like a drought
It hurt me so to see my gift just blown ‘way with the dust
I climbed into a little shell and there I ‘gan to rust.

I prayed dear YaH don’t leave me now I know my life’s a spoil
And soon He came to me and gave me His anionting oil
He greased me down and smoothed me out and worked me from above
Then gave me what I had lost, He gave me all His Love

He didn’t give up on me!

Bright and Morning Star

Have you heard
About the Word
He was here right from the start

And if you
Believe it’s true
You know he will never depart

Many people think that we are joking
That’s because they haven’t heard
And the ones who’ve gotten the message
The majority thinks it’s absurd
Some will take it and lock it away
For future reference but they’ll forget
Just the ones who keep it handy
Won’t be fooled when it’s their turn I bet

Bright and Morning Star
We know who you are
Never far away
Each and every day

Do you get
The picture friends
That not every eye can see

What we’re saying
And yes we’re praying
Hoping that day you’ll be

Walking with us and talking with us
In the garden or by a stream
On the Mountain or by a fountain
It’ll be real it won’t be a dream
It’s a place with lots of space
Where things go on and we won’t be bored
So if you feel down and out
Lift up your voice you won’t be ignored
