IF JESUS CAME TODAY

Verse 1:
I believe that Jesus died
I believe He rose again
I believe that He will bring
Those who fall asleep in Him
Soon the Lord Himself will come
Down from heaven, all will see
Like a lightning flash
With a trumpet call
Caught up together
We will meet

Chorus:
If Jesus came today
Would you join Him?
Would you be gathered
By His angels far and wide?
Rise to live with Jesus forever
Witness a heaven and new earth
All made right

Verse 2:
Someday they’ll look around
True believers will be gone
Those who chose to follow
The less traveled road
Two working together
One taken, one left
Which one will you be?
Do you know?

CHORUS

Verse 3:
Don’t be deceived
The world can’t meet your needs
Not wealth, not fame, not knowledge
Nor your friends
If Jesus, you don’t choose
Then I’m afraid you’ll lose
Your eternal life
Is fire that never ends

Bridge:
The day of the Lord
Should not come as a surprise
Rebellion and wars
The rise of antichrist
Great tribulation
Like we have never known
Then Jesus coming on the clouds
Trumpets loud
Calling us home

CHORUS

Verse 4:
If we believe
The Lord will meet our needs
He promises forgiveness
And gives grace
Know Jesus as God’s Son
He died for everyone
Choose to follow
And take that step of faith

Final Chorus:
Then if Jesus came today
You would join Him
You would be gathered
By His angels far and wide
We will rise to live with Jesus forever
Witness a heaven and new earth
All made right
All made right
With you right
By Jesus’ side

Friday

Hey, let Me tell you
About the Friday I had
It really started last night
Then went terribly bad
Friends fashioned a feast
For Passover, you know
In a large upper room
That was furnished just so

I knew that My time had come
My final hour
And I knew that the Father
Had all things under His power
I got up from the meal
To wash My followers’ feet
Leaving a lesson of love
An example to see

When we reclined at the table
I had something to say,
“This Son of Man
One of you will betray!”
My disciples were saddened,
“Surely not I?”
Judas dipped bread with Me
Then went out in the night

We continued to eat
I gave thanks and broke bread
“This is My body;
Take and eat it,” I said,
“Do this to remember
What I’ve done for you”
Then sharing the cup,
“My blood poured out too”

Together we sang
To Mount Olives we went
Peter I warned
Though he denied the event
That he would disown me
Three times yet that night
Claimed he’d lay down his life
That he was willing to fight

I tried to comfort my men
“Trust in God, trust in Me
I go to prepare a place
I’ll come back, just believe
The evidence of miracles
You saw day after day
No one comes to the Father
But by the truth, life, the way”

“Now I’m about to return
To the One who sent Me
It is for your own good
But it’s your grief that I see
For if I do not go
The Holy Spirit won’t come
To guide you in truth
And bring glory to the Son”

Then I withdrew and knelt down
Hoped My friends would pray too
But they kept falling asleep
They didn’t know what I knew
That I came to be sacrificed
God’s only Son
Seeking My Father
I said, “May Your will be done”

Then the crowd busted in
The priests and armed guards
A kiss of betrayal
That accompanied swords
Seized and arrested
A biased hearing and trial
The crows of a rooster
Pain of Peter’s denial

Mocked and beaten by guards
False testimonies again
“Are you the Messiah?”
I answered, “I am”
Then led before Romans
Found undeserving of death
“Are you the king of the Jews?”
I replied simply, “Yes”

The mob was unruly
And easily persuaded
To shout, “Crucify him!”
The priests were elated
A flogging so brutal
A crown of thorns on My head
Stripped, mocked, and spit upon
Then away I was led

To the place of the Skull
To be crucified
Nailed to a cross
My arms spread out wide
Hung between criminals
With My charge on a sign
That read “King of the Jews”
That was My only crime

The mocking continued
And insults were hurled
As I gave up My spirit
And died for the world
The earth quaked and rocks split
A sword pierced My side
“Surely this was the Son of God!”
A man cried

Then wrapped up in linen
And laid in a tomb
But I don’t plan on staying
I’ll be out of here soon
Watch for Me in three days
I’ll live and I’ll rise
Friday is finished! —
Sunday’s a surprise!

To You I Call

Verse 1:
To You I call
O Lord my Rock
Hear my cry for mercy
As I call for help

I lift my hands
To Your Holy Place
Pray You won’t be silent
As I seek Your face

Chorus:
Praise be to the Lord
For He hears my cry
Sing thanks to the One
Worthy alone
To be magnified

My heart leaps for joy
Makes music and sings
With shouts that extol
Honor to Your Name
The King above all kings

Verse 2:
Of this, I’m sure
I will see the good
Goodness of God
In the land of the living

I will wait for Him
And His promised reward
Be strong, take heart
And wait, wait for the Lord

CHORUS

Verse 3:
Teach me Your way
Lead me in Your path
You are my light
And my salvation

You are my strength
You are my shield
I boldly raise
This proclamation

Chorus:
Praise be to the Lord
For He hears my cry
Sing thanks to the One
Worthy alone
To be magnified

My heart leaps for joy
Makes music and sings
With shouts that extol
Honor to Your Name
The King above all kings

(based on Psalms 27 and 28)

I am Your Lamb

Verse 1:
You are my Shepherd
And I am your lamb
You lead me to beautiful,
Bountiful lands

With tender green grass
Framed by trees tall and strong —
Cool meadows where I safely
Rest in Your arm

Verse 2:
You are my Shepherd
And I am Your lamb
I long to be with You
The Son of I AM

The One who will lead me
To waters so calm –
My thirsty soul satisfied
In Your healing balm

Chorus:
I am Your lamb
I know You know me
But I am not the only
Lamb that you see

You laid down Your life
So we all could be –
One flock, one Shepherd
Eternally

Verse 3:
You are my Shepherd
I listen for You
Your voice guides to righteousness
Speaking what’s True

I’m just a lamb
But You know my name —
You are the Good Shepherd
To save me, You came

CHORUS x 2

Based on Psalm 23 and John 10

Pure Love

Verse 1:
Stop! You are no better!
Listen! You are no lesser!
We ALL have fallen short
Of the glory God planned for us

He made us male and female
In His eyes, we all are equal
He formed us and adores us
Even made a plan to restore us

Chorus:
There is love, pure love
Pouring down on you
You can turn from Him
But He is still loving you

There is love, pure love
Pouring down on you
You may not believe
But that don’t mean it’s not true

Pure love – It’s pure love

Verse 2:
Stop! He wants us to know Him
Listen! He treasures our souls
He offers forgiveness and freedom
Accept Him and we are made whole

He made us with a heart’s desire
That hungers for Him everyday
But when we fill up on other things
There’s no room for Him to stay

Chorus:
But there’s love, His pure love
Pouring down on you
You can turn from Him
But He is still loving you

There is love, pure love
Pouring down on you
You may not believe
But that don’t mean it’s not true

There is love –pure love

Bridge:
His love is patient
And His love is kind
He wants none of His children
To be left behind

He wants us to love Him
And love others too
With the love of the Father
A love growing in you

Chorus:
There is love, pure love
Pouring down on you
You can turn from Him
But He is still loving you

There is love, pure love
Pouring down on you
You may not believe
But that don’t mean it’s not true

Pure love – His pure love

(Repeat Chorus)

Come

Come

Come, come, come
Jesus calls to come, come, come

Verse 1:
Come, the weary and the weak
He said, come, find rest in Me
Not just for today
He’s with you all the way
Just call on Him and His face seek

Verse 2:
Come, you of little faith
The chosen whom the Father adores
Do not be afraid
He welcomes and He saves
Come declare Him as your Savior and Lord

Chorus:
So we come
To acknowledge God Most High
We come
To exalt and glorify
The King of kings who reigns above
In power and majestic love
We come bowed down
Hands lifted high

We come
To worship as we sing
We come
Our hallelujahs ring
The LORD of Lords, one day we’ll see
He will return victoriously
Defeating every enemy
His Kingdom come, setting us free
To forever come and forever be
With Him – eternally —
When He comes

Verse 3:
Come, come all you saints
People of the Most High God
You who believe
And your hearts received
The One and Only Son of God

Verse 4:
Come, come everyone
Forgiveness comes when we confess
Repent of your ways
Surrender and find grace
New life begins when we say yes

Bridge:
So we come
To surrender all to You
We come
Lord, teach us what to do
We need Your help, show us Your way
Your Spirit guiding us each day
To live holy lives
And to obey

Chorus:
So we come
To acknowledge God Most High
We come
To exalt and glorify
The King of kings who reigns above
In power and majestic love
We come bowed down
Hands lifted high

We come
To worship as we sing
We come
Our hallelujahs ring (Hallelujah!)
The LORD of Lords, one day we’ll see
He will return victoriously
Defeating every enemy
His Kingdom come, setting us free
To forever come and forever be
With Him – eternally —
When He comes
(repeat chorus)

He will come
He will come for you
If you come

Friday

Hey, let me tell you ‘bout the Friday  I had
It really started last night, then went terribly bad
Dinner with friends, a feast of food and some drink
Then we walked to the hills ‘cause I needed to think

I withdrew and knelt down, hoped my friends would pray too
But they kept falling asleep; they didn’t know what I knew
That I came to be sacrificed, God’s only Son
Seeking My Father, I said, “May Your will be done.”

Then the crowd busted in, the priests and armed guards
A kiss of betrayal that accompanied swords
Seized and arrested, a biased hearing and trial
The crows of a rooster, pain of Peter’s denial

Mocked and beaten by guards, false testimonies again
“Are you the Messiah?” I answered, “I am.”
Then led before Romans, found undeserving of death
“Are you the king of the Jews?” I replied simply, “Yes.”

The mob was unruly and easily persuaded
To shout, “Crucify him!” The priests were elated
A flogging so brutal, a crown of thorns on My head
Stripped, mocked, and spit upon, then away I was led

To the Place of the Skull, to be crucified
Nailed to a cross, My arms spread out wide
The mocking continued and insults were hurled
As I gave up My spirit and died for the world

Then wrapped up in linen and laid in a tomb
But I don’t plan on staying; I’ll be out of here soon
Watch for Me in three days; I’ll live and I’ll rise
Friday is finished; Sunday’s a surprise!
