Track Name: Almost Persuaded
Almost Persuaded

Almost persuaded, now to believe
almost persuaded, Christ to receive
Seems now some soul to say
“Go, spirit, go thy way
and some more convenient day
On thee I’ll call.”

Almost persuaded, come, come today
Almost persuaded, turn not away
Jesus invites you here
Angels are ling’ring near
prayers from hearts so dear
“o wonderer come.”

Almost persuaded, harvest is past
Almost persuaded, doom comes at last
“Almost” cannot avail, “almost” is but to fail
and sad, sad that bitter wail, “Almost, but lost.”
Track Name: Sail On
Sail On

Upon a wide and stormy sea,
Thou’rt sailing to eternity,
And thy great Admiral orders thee
Sail on! sail on! sail on

Art far from shore, and weary worn
The sky o’ercast, thy canvas torn?
Hark ye! a voice to thee is borne
“Sail on! sail on! sail on!”

Sail on sail on
the storms will soon be past
The darkness will not always last
Sail on sail on sail on
Sail on sail on
the storms will soon be past
The darkness will not always last
Sail on sail on sail on

Do comrades tremble and refuse
To further dare the taunting hues
No other course is thine to choose
Sail on sail on sail on

Do snarling waves thy craft assail
Art pow’rless, drifting with the gale
Take heart! God’s Word shall never fail

Sail on sail on
the storms will soon be past
The darkness will not always last
Sail on sail on

Sail on sail on
the storms will soon be past
The darkness will not always last
Sail on sail on sail on
Track Name: Show a Little Bit of Love
Show a Little Bit of Love
Show a little bit of love along the way
scatter smiles and sunshine and a bright word say
be a cheerful neighbor it will ever pay
and show a little bit of love

Matters not if things are just a little wrong
lift your head above them sing a tuneful song
there are others near that you may help along
and show a little bit of love

so, why, why not give your love
a little bit of love, love will lift the gloom
and for the sunshine make room
how happy we can be and show a little bit of love

Wait not for the morrow some good deeds to do
days are passing swiftly and the seem too few
grasp the flying moments and God’s work pursue
and show a little bit of love.

so, why, why not give your love
a little bit of love, love will lift the gloom
and for the sunshine make room
how happy we can be and show a little bit of love
Track Name: For a Sinner Like Me
For Sinners Like Me

When Jesus was slain
on Calvary’s cross
to cleanse me from sin
and all of it’s dross
the angels looked down
in wonder to see
such sacrifice made
for sinners like me

Yes, all of my sins
on Jesus was laid
the ransom price he
so freely hath paid
he carried them all
to Calvary’s tree
what wonderful love
for sinners like me

They crowned him with thorns
and lead him away
to Golgotha’s hill
that terrible day
through darkness prevailed
yet all men could see
the sacrifice made
for sinners like me

They lead him away
in Joseph’s new grave
the crucified lord
so mighty to save
his life he laid down
that all may go free
what wonderful love / for sinners like me
(What wonderful love / for sinners like me / go tell the good news / salvation is free)
Track Name: On the Other Side
On the Other Side

This world is full of trouble
there is grief on every hand
the many mysteries of life
we cannot understand
but when the veil is lifted
and we look beyond the tide
we’ll view a land of beauty
on the other side

On the other side
On the other side
On the other side
We’ll be satisfied

We say farewell to loved ones
as they start across the foam
and we can go to meet them in
that glad eternal home
for when the day is ended
and we cross the Jordan wide
There’ll be a great reunion
on the other side.
Track Name: Don't Be Blue
Don’t Be Blue


Don’t be discouraged brother
downhearted, lone or blue
but chase away the shadows
let sunshine dwell in you

the sun will shine tomorrow
the way will brighter be
so travel on my brother
the lord will pilot thee
the lord will pilot thee

Though threatening storm clouds gather
and chilly winds may blow
keep faith and follow jesus
he’ll not forsake you know
Track Name: No Disappointment in Heaven
No Disappointment In Heaven

There’s no disappointment in heaven
no weariness, sorrow or pain
no hearts that are bleeding and broken
no song with a minor refrain
the clouds of our earthly horizon
will never appear in the sky
for all will be sunshine and gladness
with never a sob or a sigh

Sometimes I grow homesick for heaven
and glories I there shall behold
what joy that will be when my savior I see
in that beautiful city of gold

we’ll never pay rent for our mansion
the taxes will never come due
our garments will never grow threadbare
but always be fadeless and new
we’ll never be hungry or thirsty
nor languish in poverty there
for all the rich bounties of heaven
his wandering children will share

there’ll never be crepe on the door knob
no funeral train in the sky
no graves on the hillsides of glory
for there we shall never more die
the old will be young there forever
transformed in a moment of time
immortal we’ll stand in his likeness
the stars and the sun to outshine
Track Name: Where the Soul Never Dies
Where the Soul Never Dies


To Canaans Land I’m on my way
Where the soul never dies
My darkest night will turn to day
Where the soul never dies

No sad farewells
no tear dimmed eyes
where all is love
and the soul never dies

A lovelight beams across the foam
Where the soul never dies
It shines to light the shores of home
Where the soul never dies

No sad farewells
no tear dimmed eyes
where all is love
and the soul never dies

My life with end in deathless sleep
Where the soul never dies
and everlasting joys I’ll reap
Where the soul never dies

No sad farewells
no tear dimmed eyes
where all is love
and the soul never dies

A rose is blooming there for me
Where the soul never dies
And I will spend eternity
Where the soul never dies

I’m on my way to that fair land
Where the soul never dies
Where there will be no parting hand
Where the soul never dies
Track Name: I'll Walk in the Streets of Gold
I’ll Walk the Streets of Gold

I can hear the joy bells ringing
I can hear the angels singing
Heaven’s peace to me they’re bringing
with a welcome to the fold
let me hear salvations story
while I’m sweeping up to glory
I can hardly wait till I’m past the gate
I will walk the streets of gold

some day, some day, some day heaven will unfold
some day, some day, I will walk the streets of gold

Soon this world in which I wander
I will trade for one up yonder
For my heart is growing fonder
of the riches heaven holds
I shall drop the robe I’m wearing
he will lift the cross I’m bearing
there in Canaan’s land, He will take my hand
and we’ll walk the streets of gold

I don’t know about tomorrow
it may bring me joy or sorrow
but his strength is mine to borrow
let the mighty tempest roll
I have faith in him to guide me
I am safe with him beside me
when the time is come he will call me home
and we’ll walk the streets of gold
Track Name: Stairway to Heaven
The Stairway To Heaven

I’m told there’s a beautiful city
tis free unto all who will come
God sometimes awakens the conscience
of those who would make it their home

He brings our lives into submission
by sending us sorrows and fears
For we find the stairway to heaven
down in the valley of tears

The stairway to heaven is down in the valley of tears
and when we’ve found it the brighter the harbour appears

sometimes it may take a dear loved one
perhaps it’s the joy of our home
that sweet little form we so cherish
now waiting neath heaven’s fair dome
it may be our earthly possessions
or something we’ve treasured for years
for we find the stairway to heaven
down in the valley of tears

The pathway we tread is oft dreary
we know not which way we should go
but if we press onward and upward
(it) will lead us to heaven we know
for surely our Savior will lead us
if all our petitions he hears
for we find the stairway to heaven
down in the valley of tears
Track Name: My Sins Are Gone
My Sins Are Gone

Gone gone gone
yes my sins are gone
and in my hearts a (this) song
what is wrong with me

buried deep beneath the sea
all my sins are gone from me
lord why can’t I just believe
they’re gone gone gone
Track Name: Let Me Dream On
Let Me Dream On

Let me dream on
If I am dreaming
Let me dream on
my sins are gone

night turns to dawn
love’s light is beaming
so if I’m dreaming
let me dream on.
