Track Name: The Fire Song
The Fire Song

(capo 3, G)

Oh the judgment day is coming
what an awful day it will be
Christ forever is the refuge
Rock of ages cleft for me.

but oh my loving brother
when the world’s on fire
don’t you want God’s shoulder
for to be your pillow

At the sounding of the trumpet
at the dawning of the day
Worldly pleasures and their treasures
shall forever pass away

but oh my loving brother
when the world’s on fire
don’t you want God’s shoulder
for to be your pillow

Poor lost sinners will be crying
for that home they never will see
but the ransomed will be singing
Rock of Ages cleft for me

but oh my loving brother
when the world’s on fire
don’t you want God’s shoulder
for to be your pillow
Track Name: I Would Not Be Denied
I Would Not Be Denied

When pangs of death seized on my soul
unto the Lord I cried
Till Jesus came and made me whole
I would not be denied

I would not be denied
I would not be denied
Till Jesus came and made me whole
I would not be denied

As Jacob in the days of old
I wrestled with the Lord
And instant, with a courage bold
I stood upon his word

I would not be denied
I would not be denied
Till Jesus came and made me whole
I would not be denied

Old Satan said the Lord was gone
And would not hear my prayer
But praise the Lord the work is done
And Christ the Lord is here

I would not be denied
I would not be denied
Till Jesus came and made me whole
I would not be denied
Track Name: Beautiful Isle
Beautiful Isle

Somewhere the sun is shining
somewhere the songbirds dwell
hush then thy sad repining
God lives and all is well

Somewhere the day is longer
somewhere the task is done
somewhere the heart is stronger
somewhere the victory is won

Somewhere the load is lifted
Close by an open gate
somewhere the clouds are rifted
somewhere the angels wait

somewhere, somewhere
beautiful isle of somewhere
somewhere, somewhere
beautiful isle of somewhere
Track Name: This World Is Not My Home
This World Is Not My Home

This world is not my home, I’m just passing through
My treasures are laid up, somewhere beyond the blue
The angels beckon me, from heaven’s open door
and I can’t feel at home in this world any more

Oh Lord, you know, I have no friend like you
If Heaven’s not my home, then Lord what will I do?
The angels beckon me, from heaven’s open door
and I can’t feel at home in this world any more

They’re all expecting me, And that’s one thing I know
I fixed it up with Jesus, forty years ago
I know he’ll take me through, though I am weak and poor
and I can’t feel at home in this world any more

I have a loving mother, o’er in glory land
I don’t expect to stop, until I shake her hand
She’s waiting there for me, in heaven’s open door
And I can’t feel at home, in this world anymore

Just o’er in glory land, we’ll live eternally
The saints on every hand are shouting victory
their songs of sweetest praise, drift back from heaven’s shore
and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore.
Track Name: Heavenly Sunlight
Heavenly Sunlight

Walking in sunlight, all of my journey
Over the mountains and through the deep vale
Jesus has said “I’ll never forsake thee”
Promise divine, that never can fail.

Heavenly sunlight, heavenly sunlight
flooding my soul with glories divine

Shadows around me, shadows above me
Never conceal my Savior and Guide
He is the light in Him is no darkness
Ever I’m walking close to his side.

Heavenly sunlight, heavenly sunlight
flooding my soul with glories divine

In the bright sunlight, ever rejoicing
Pressing my way to mansions above
Singing his praises, gladly I’m walking
Walking in sunlight, sunlight of love.

Heavenly sunlight, heavenly sunlight
flooding my soul with glories divine
so Halleluja, I am rejoicing,
Singing his praises, Jesus is mine.
Track Name: Is He Satisfied
Is He Satisfied

Do you ever search your heart
as you watch the day depart
Is there something way down deep
you try to hide

If this day should be end
and eternity begin
when the book is open wide
would the Lord be satisfied?

Is he satisfied, is he satisfied
is he satisfied with me
have I done my best
have I stood the test
Is he satisfied with me

Feeble is the lamp of fame
by which man inscribes his name
on the walls of time
for other men to see

Though he boasts of wealth and power
none will help him in that hour
when the angels hear his plea
is he satisfied with me?

Is he satisfied, is he satisfied
is he satisfied with me
have I done my best
have I stood the test
Is he satisfied with me
Track Name: I'll Live On
I’ll Live On

Tis a sweet and glorious thought that comes to me
I’ll live on, I’ll live on
Jesus saved my soul from death and now I’m free
I’ll live on, I’ll live on

I’ll live on, I’ll live on
In eternity, I’ll live on
I’ll live on, I’ll live on
In eternity, I’ll live on and on

When my body’s slumbering in the cold, cold clay
I’ll live on, I’ll live on
There to sleep in Jesus till the judgment day
I’ll live on, I’ll live on

I’ll live on, I’ll live on
In eternity, I’ll live on
I’ll live on, I’ll live on
In eternity, I’ll live on and on

When the worlds on fire and darkness veils the sun
I’ll live on, I’ll live on
Men will cry and to the rocks and mountains run
I’ll live on, I’ll live on

I’ll live on, I’ll live on
In eternity, I’ll live on
I’ll live on, I’ll live on
In eternity, I’ll live on and on
Track Name: O Beautiful Home
Oh Beautiful Home

O beautiful home, O mansion of rest
where all the redeemed are happy and blest
Someday I shall join that glorified throng
up there we shall sing a wonderful song

O beautiful home, where cometh no night
A wonderful place, so lovely and bright
it’s gates are of pearl, it’s streets of pure gold
Up there I shall live and never grow old

O beautiful home awaiting me there
My savior has gone that place to prepare
He’s coming again to gather his own
Then heaven shall be my beautiful home

O beautiful home
in heaven so fair
we’ll meet our dear friends
and loved ones up there
Track Name: Whisper a Prayer
Whisper a Prayer

Whisper a prayer in the morning
whisper a prayer at noon
whisper a prayer in the evening
to keep your heart in tune
oh, to keep your heart in tune

God answers prayer in the morning
God answers prayer at noon
God answers prayer in the evening
to keep your heart in tune
oh, to keep your heart in tune

Jesus may come in the morning
Jesus may come at noon
Jesus may come in the evening
so keep your heart in tune
oh, so keep your heart in tune
Track Name: God Will Take Care of You
God Will Take Care of You

Be not dismayed whatever betide
God will take care of you
Beneath his wings of love abide
God will take care of you

God will take care of you
through every day, O’er all the way
He will take care of you
God will take care of you.

Through days of toil when heart doth fail
God will take care of you
When dangers fierce your path assail
God will take care of you

God will take care of you
through every day, O’er all the way
He will take care of you
God will take care of you

All you may need He will provide
God will take care of you
Nothing you ask will be denied
God will take care of you

God will take care of you
through every day, O’er all the way
He will take care of you
God will take care of you

No matter what may be the test
God will take care of you
Lean, weary one, upon his breast
God will take care of you

God will take care of you
through every day, O’er all the way
He will take care of you
God will take care of you
Track Name: One of These Days
One of These Days

one of these days our lord shall come
for the redeemed ones who've been won
coming from glory like he went away
all the redeemed in Christ shall rise
meeting the savior in the skies
shouting his praises round the throne for aye

chorus

one of these days I'm going home
to be with Jesus round the throne
where no sickness pain or death there is known
it will be joy beyond compare
when all God's saints are gathered there
it will be heaven there in my new home

now is the time dear sinner friend
you should trust God and turn from sin
then you will Praise him for his matchless love
you will find peace along the way
living for Jesus every day
laying up treasures in that home above

some of these days it won't be long
Jesus will say come join the throng
up in heaven where cometh no more night
it will be joy in that fair land
when we all join in that great band
singing his praises there where all's a-right
