Track Name: Spirit Song
O let the Son of God enfold you
with his Spirit and his love.
Let him lift your heart and
satisfy your soul.

O let him have the things that hold you,
and his Spirit like a dove
will descend upon your life
and make you whole.

Jesus, Oh Jesus,
come and fill your lambs.
Track Name: 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,
and I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth.
At Bethlehem I had my birth.

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 on a Friday and the sky turned black;
it's hard to dance with the devil on your back;
they buried my body and they thought I'd gone,
but I am the dance and I still go on.

They cut me down and I lept up high,
I am the life that'll never ever die;
I'll live in you if you'll live in me;
I am the Lord of the Dance, said he.
Track Name: In The Garden
I come to the garden alone
while the dew in still on the roses,
and the voice I hear falling on my ear,
the Son of God discloses.

And he walks with me,
and he talks with me,
and he tells me I am his own;
and the joy we share as we tarry there,
none other has ever known.

He speaks and the sound of his voice
is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
and the melody that he gave to me
within my heart is ringing.
Track Name: Little Brown Sparrow
Little brown sparrow, chirping away,
Snowflakes are falling, cold is the day;
Flying and chirping, cherry and free;
Little brown sparrow, what can you see?

No little children; God will provide;
That's why I'm happy; He is my guide;
He led the blackbirds, far, far away,
Yet, in His keeping, safely I stay.

Sparrow and bluebird and children, too,
Happy whenever God's bidding they do;
Sparrow and bluebird, and little ones all,
Safe in His keeping, whatever befall.
Track Name: When Love is Found
When love is found
and hope comes home,
sing and be glad
that two are one.
When love explodes
and fills the sky,
praise God and share
our Maker’s joy.

When love has flowered
in trust and care,
build both each day,
that love may dare
to reach beyond
home’s warmth and light,
to serve and strive
for truth and right.

When love is tried
as loved ones change,
hold still to hope
though all seems strange,
till ease returns,
and love grows wise
through listening ears
and opened eyes.
Track Name: Nobody Knows the Trouble I See
Nobody knows the trouble I see,
nobody knows but Jesus;
oh, nobody knows the trouble I see,
glory hallelujah!

Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down
Oh, yes, Lord!
Sometimes I'm almost to the ground,
Oh, yes, Lord!

What makes old Satan hate me so?
Oh, yes, Lord!
Cause he got me once and let me go,
Oh, yes, Lord!
Track Name: Morning Has Broken
Morning has broken
like the first morning;
black-bird has spoken
like the first bird.
Praise for the singing!
Praise for the morning!
Praise for the springing fresh from the Word!

Sweet the rain’s new fall
sunlit from heaven,
like the first dew fall
on the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness
of the wet garden,
sprung in completeness where his feet pass.
Track Name: How Great Thou Art
O Lord my God!
when I in awesome wonder,
consider all the worlds thy hands have made,
I see the stars,
I hear the rolling thunder,
thy power throughout, the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul,
my savior God to thee;
How great thou art!
How great thou art!

When through the woods
and forest glades I wander,
and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
when I look down
from lofty mountain grandeur,
and hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze;
Track Name: Swing Low, Sweet Chariot
Swing low, sweet chariot,
coming for to carry me home;
Swing low, sweet chariot,
coming for to carry me home.

I looked over Jordan,
and what did I see,
coming for to carry me home?
A band of angels
coming after me,
coming for to carry me home.

I'm sometimes up,
I'm sometimes down,
coming for to carry me home;
but still my soul
feels heavenly bound,
coming for to carry me home.
Track Name: Nothing But The Blood
What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

O precious is the flow
that makes me bright as snow;
no other fount I know;
nothing but the blood of Jesus.

This is all my hope and peace:
nothing but the blood of Jesus.
This is all my righteousness:
nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Track Name: Do You Know How Many Stars?
Do you know how many stars
There are shinning in the sky?
Do you know how many birdies
Ev'ry day go passing by?

God the Lord their numbers knoweth,
For each one His care He showeth,
Of the bright and boundless host,
Of the bright and boundless host.

Do you know how many birdies
In the sunshine sing all day?
Do you know how many fishes
In the sparkling water play?

God the Lord who dwells in heaven,
Name and life to each has given,
In His love they live and move,
In His love they live and move.
Track Name: Let All The World In Every Corner Sing
Let all the world in every corner sing:
my God and King!
The heavens are not too high,
God's praise may thither fly;
the earth is not too low, God's praises there may grow.

Let all the world in every corner sing:
my God and King!
The church with psalms may shout,
no door can keep them out.
But, more than all the heart must bear the longest part.

Let all the world in every corner sing:
my God and King!
