MASTER'S COMMAND


The pain you feel,
Is caused by all the things I've said and done.
But your love for me is so real
You forgave me,
And you sent your only Son.
Oh, and you say
"My people are falling away from me
People, I'm calling you to be, just as I am"

How can you say to me that you love me
Yet you have so much hate for your brother?
Don't you know that the law says we're murderers
If we hate one another?

(Chorus)
Why can't we forgive one another
And learn to be just as I am
Why don't we just love one another
And do as the Master commands?

Times only waiting for you,
To tear down the walls
Of pride that you made
To see through our masters eyes
And to realize
The changes we've all got to make.

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
Well don't you know what His blood
Is our forgiveness?
He's put the answer in us all
Your heart is cold your blood is black
You're full of darkness
But the masters answer's in us all
How can you say to me that you love me
Yet you have so much hate for your brother?
I've made it so easy
Now the choice is up to you
Remember my judgment
Will be upon this matter

(Chorus)


BEYOND THE MOUNTAIN

Many people live their lives
As if there's no tomorrow
Not caring what goes on
Just drowning in their sorrows
The times are tough
And they're just heading for a fall
So can you tell me
What's the meaning of it all?

(Chorus)
Beyond the mountain, where He waits for you and me

So many times you feel
You're left alone just standing
Well let me say that's nothing new
The righteousness displayed
By Christ they all rejected
They hated Him, and they'll hate you.

So count it joy
When you are headed for the wall
And just remember He's the meaning of it all

(Chorus 2)
Beyond the mountain, is the place I wanna be
Beyond the mountain, is the place for you and me.

(Repeat chorus 2)

You struggle with this lonely time
You feel abandoned
Say no one takes the time to care
Oh. Can't you see the lies
That blind you, leave you stranded.
That special someone is out there

So count it joy when you are headed for the wall
And just remember He's the meaning of it all


EVIL LURKS

What evil lurks in the minds of men
It's evident in the air
The blackened stains of the times
Are finally revealed
There's pain and strife
The widow screams
The child he runs away
The reflection of all that's been done
Has taken it's place

(Chorus)
Oh?don't you believe
The time of the times is on our hands
On our hands

The unrighteous ones
Prevail not at all
They too must face the One
Who sits on the throne
Man will devour one another
Like the wild beast of the field
Hungry for blood and deception
When will it all yield
Oh, Don't you believe
The time of the times is on our hands
The time of the times is on our hands
On our hands

We must all ride out to conquer sin
And seek what's pure in life
So we can be with Him.

Pain and strife
The widow screams
The child he runs away
The reflection of all that's been done
Has taken it's place

Oh? don't you believe
The time of the times is on our hands
Ohhhh  why don't you receive?


BOUND IN CHAINS

As the night starts its rising the streets start to fill
You're looking to get your next thrill
Music's loud, lights are bright.
Women dressed to kill in their high heels and tights

(Chorus 1)
Oh can't you see it's all so clear
You're living a lie
Wondering why, still searching inside
Days go by still you try, never understanding
That you've just one of the many bound in chains

The pusher's pushing, the thief is stealing
The preacher's preaching but his life's filled with darkness
The gangsters killing, the witch she's casting spells
Astrologers tell their lies and people buy these
Feelings

(Chorus 2)
Oh can't they see it's all so clear
They're living a lie
Wondering why, still searching inside
Days go by still they try, never understanding
That they're just one of the many bound
On they keep pushing on never realizing
That they're just one of many bound in chains

If you choose to live life by these ways
No one else can take the blame for the pain you're
Gonna feel
But the truth's within you, crying out
Now how much longer will you live in this darkness

(Chorus 3)
Oh can't you see it's all so clear
You're living a lie
Wondering why, still searching inside
Days go by still you try, never understanding
That you're just one of the many bound
On they keep pushing on will you ever realize
That you're just one of many bound in chains


UNFAILING LOVE

I never knew what love was all about
'til I found you
I never thought that it ever would be this way
Many times I've tried to make it
On my own
But I'd fall apart
Yet I knew you were the one

(Chorus)
I know you won't ever leave me in pain
I know our love will never die
When I'm feeling lonely
You're right there by my side
You take my hand and tell me
Everything's alright

When I hear your voice
It sends a chill right through me
The feeling of your love
Unfailing and forever strong
Even though, I can't count the times
I've let you down
This I know you promise
That you'll never let me go

(Chorus)

When I hear your voice
It sends a chill right though me
The feeling of your love
Unfailing and forever strong
Even though I can't count the times
I've let you down
This I know you promise
That you'll never let me go

(Chorus)


PARADISE

I look ahead to that heavenly dwelling
And angel showed me in a dream
And here's what he said?.
You won't believe what you will see

Then he took me away
To a mountain so high
And showed me a city so fine
That's come down from heaven
It's pearly gates shining bright.

(Chorus)
Oh   Can it be I must be in paradise
I really think so, can it be I'm looking at paradise

For the kingdom of heaven shall dazzle the faithful
It's walls made of jasmine and gold
With sounds of singing angels
Giving praise to His name

And we won't need the sun or moon
To shine on us
The glory of God gives us light
And the Lamb is our lamp
No darkness will enter our lives

(Chorus)

There will be no more crying-no death
And no mourning
The old things have now passed away
His glory revealed
Freed from the pressures of our sin

The I woke up and jumped out of bed
Elated by all that I'd seen
In the dream that I had
I've never felt so great before

(Chorus)


UNCONTROLLED

Well there's people living for excitement
They feel it's the only way of life

Born with anger
Life's hell every hour
From dawn to dusk they're always on the run

But if you think about it
Every heart has some love
A simple prayer might change the world
We just can't lock them up and throw away the key
That's not what we believe. NO

Heading towards destruction
Men of lawlessness
Opposing the righteous in every way

On a fine line
So don't take the chance
The wicked man is doomed by his own sin

But if you think about it
Every heart has some love
A simple prayer might change the world
We just can't lock them up and throw away the key
That's not what we believe. NO

You're running away from reality
It's a drastic measure don't you see
There's no reason to go on this way
It's not a way of life

Uncontrolled your lust gives birth to sin
And sin when it's full grown can lead to death
People listen
You've got to receive
The greatest gift of all-eternal life

And when you think about it
Every heart has some love
A simple prayer might change the world
And the One who loves you lives today
And it's Him you must receive


MANY WILL COME

Many will come
In the name of Him
But the Spirit's there
For all to see
Their blood runs cold
Just like the rest
But in the end of time
Will tell who will be blessed

(Chorus)
We will see Him standing
When the rest are gone
He'll be dressed in white
And He will shine

If you believe
That He has come
Back from the dead
To save the souls of everyone
He'll give you life abundantly
And in the Father's hands
That's where we all will be

(Chorus)
We will see Him standing
When the rest are gone
He'll be dressed in white
And He will shine

If you believe that He has come
Back from the dead to save the souls of everyone
He'll give you life abundantly
And in the Father's hands that's where we all will be

(Chorus)

Can you see the light? Can you feel the power?
He'll be the one who's dressed in white.


ONWARD WARRIORS
(instrumental)



THE FLOOD

Now it came to pass
Just before the flood
The Lord saw man's wickedness
And said I'll spill their blood.

Mercy follows mercy
(The) decision's up to you
get right with Christ, child,
Heed the warning: it's coming soon.

Parallels of hell destruction from above
Water into fire. God's will be done.
Master, call Him Master and do just what
He says.
Serve the Lord and Saviour Christ .
Faith without works is dead.

Mercy follows mercy
(The) decision's up to you
Get right with Christ, child,
The flood is coming soon.

You see the flood as it's coming
To this place
Nowhere to run and hide
Preachers of righteousness
Are warning you today
To turn from sin.

To escape the wrath that's coming
Receive the truth and be saved.

The earth is filled with violence, and it will
Pay.
Like nuclear destruction, could happen
Any day.
Why then would you chose to
Refuse the offer in
To the arks type which is Christ, child
For a fleeting dance with sin

Saints, arise.


HOLY, HOLY, HOLY

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord
God of power and might
Heaven and earth are
Filled with your glory

(Chorus)
Hosanna  Hosanna
In the highest
Hosanna   Hosanna
In the highest

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord
God of power and might
Heaven and earth are
Filled with your glory

(Chorus)
Hosanna   Hosanna
In the highest
Hosanna  Hosanna
In the highest
