LYRICS

I BELIEVE

Yesterday I heard it said that I was young with lots to learn
Lacking reason they’d explain they said that I could not discern
Wide-eyed in my innocence, searching in my youth
I looked all around and still I found that

I, I do believe
I believe in love, I believe in truth and
I, I do believe
I believe that I have found these things in You

Now today I hear them say, they say that I am too unreal
Giving my whole life away for what they think is only a feeling
But You’ve exceeded expectation, You’re everything to me
My reason, my reality

Tomorrow I will hear them say
That I am getting old and losing reason
But even then I’ll sing Your praise cause I

WE WILL BE THE GENERATION

One life, one salvation
In a world of doubt just one hope for our nation
And it is Jesus, Jesus
One end for a new beginning
There is just one man who can stop all our sinning
And it is Jesus, Jesus
Jesus You’re the One who sets the captives free
Use me Lord, glorify Your Name through me

We will be the generation
We will be the ones
Spreading the light through the land
And in the heat of the hour
We’ll carry on
Til Your glory consumes the land

One love can mend the broken-hearted
There is just one blood can wash away the sin we started
And it is Jesus
One road from desolation
Just one way to conquer trial and tribulation
And it is Jesus, Jesus
You chose us as the salt and light of the world
And by Your Spirit we will live and speak out Your Word

One light, one revelation
Shining in the darkness our only consolation now
Is Jesus
One flame and we can light a fire
Til hearts of stone are melted and the nation’s one desire
Is Jesus
And with one ambition we go in one accord
That the Lamb once slain might receive His great reward

Mirrored in Your image, Father, Spirit, Son
We will spread the good news til we see Your kingdom come

FREEDOM TALKING

It’s the sign of the times
Everyone is so aware now
It’s the social climate
Consciousness is in the air now
The issues of apartheid
Obtain their just condemnation
And Africa is topical so it makes
Good dinner conversation
If that’s all it’s just

Freedom talking
Freedom talk
Don’t you know
Freedom walking requires
A freedom walk

Even here in the western world
We claim that we are free
Still we’re voluntary subjects
To a different kind of slavery
Materialism’s fiery iron
Into the flesh it’s mark it burns
I hear you talk but it’s so hard to take you seriously
You and your liberation concerns
It sounds as if it’s just

We’re bound by our attitudes
We’re bound by ourselves
We’re cornered in by our open minds
And no one else
Free thinker
Think free
Release the intellect
And let the Spirit flow in peace
Or else all your

I AM A CHRISTIAN

Standing on the edge of social rules
Just one more step and you won’t be cool
Gotta be careful not to cross that line
If you just conform then you’ll be fine
Respectability’s out
Dedication is in
I’m gonna lift my head and sing

I am a Christian
I believe in the Son of God
I am a Christian
I believe that Jesus Christ is the Lord of all

It’s so easy stating your profession
Without confession of your faith
It’s really simple saying what’s your preference
Without a reference to our God of grace
But now allegiance is in
Popularity’s out
I’m gonna stand up tall and shout

All shame and pride
Must stand aside to love

THE LAMB IS THE SHEPHERD

Lost in my thought in a world of delusion
Confusing desires clouding my mind
The Lord is my Shepherd but still I want
The grass is so much greener on the other side
Like a sheep without a shepherd
I begin to wander astray
Then I hear the voice of the Shepherd
Calling this sheep by name

The Lamb is the Shepherd
(Faithfully tending His own
If they be lost they’re never alone)
The Lamb is the Shepherd
(If His voice is known
They can listen and He will lead them home)

The world it seems to offer so much
To sheltered sheep in the Father’s fold
Bright lights attract and voices beckon
Still everything that glistens is not gold
Like a sheep without a shepherd
I begin to wander astray
And I ignore the voice of the Shepherd
Calling this sheep by name

Then I realize my foolish ways
And how much I need the Lamb to guide
I call out just once in despair to the Shepherd
At once He is right there by my side
Like a sheep before a shearer
Silently waiting what will come my way
Then I hear the voice of the Shepherd
Calling this sheep by name

JUST THE WAY I AM

I’d heard enough about you
You came to see me anyway
Didn‘t want to meet you then
What was I thinking of
Since I was sixteen or seventeen
I felt your touch
And I have been in love

Birds of a feather
They all tend to a flock together
But could it be that
Two opposites attract
Everytime I do what‘s wrong
The good in you
Keeps drawing me back

This love is indestructable
Feeling‘s undeniable
Love so unconditional
I do not deserve
There are no requisitions no demands
You accept me just the way I am

We‘ve made promises to one another
Then I often break my word
When my spirit is willing
But my flesh is such a fool
But when I let you down
You raise me up
You look me in the eyes
And say I love you
And I know for sure that I love you too

Though you can clearly see
All my naked personality
Stripped of pretension
And exposing the truth
Of what I‘m really like
And how I really think
And what I really want to do
You don’t condone it
Still you let me be me
And all your goodness and your light
Come shining through
And I know I’ve got good love

This love is indestructable
Feeling‘s undeniable
Love so unconditional
Is really inexplicable
Bond is inextricable
Says I’m indispensible
And it’s so incredible
I’m still an individual
Almost unbelievable
Feeling’s inconceivable
I’m acceptable in non-provisional love
There are no requisitions no demands
You accept me just the way I am

NOT WITH THE WEAPON

Soweto country – there’s a dark situation
Cause mere longevity’s such a contemptible ideal
We want peace, want freedom, cry freedom now
When will it be

China and Ireland and Iraq and Iran
Will the triumph of their principles provide them with peace
Can there ever be equality and an end to belligerency
Will our militaristic madness ever cease

Not with the weapon
Not with violence
Not with aggression
Not with war no

Can you hear now – the children are crying
So many people dying it’s now accepted as the norm
Bloodshed and bombing and death and destruction
Can you feel, can you hear, or have all our senses gone

How are we gonna build, how are we gonna build
a foundation for the future
When we sacrifice the children on the altars of our gods
With all our civilisation and self-centred preservation
Will the next generation stand secure

Not with the weapon…

Fight to be free, fight for our rights
The war for peace is on
But still remaining is the inner contention
We wrestle on the inside, re-reflection of the outside
And targeting temptation to the bulleye of the soul

Prisoners of conscience – come break down the barriers
Break out, tear down the walls
Come die, come live, come find true freedom
From the world , from yourself, well I found it in the Lord

Not with the weapon…

In the name of God now we’re fussing and fighting
And in the name of our God now, look what we’ve done
Theology of liberation a gun and gospel combination
All I know, all I know, ain’t nothing holy about war

New life, new love, new laws and new living
We can only be united by the blood that makes us one
People of the world now – come together
Hold the hand of your brother and let go of the gun

Love explains and love transcends what logic cannot know
Though intellectual snobbery simply casts it away
We need the word to light our path, we need that old time religion
Find healing for our land with God today

Not with the weapon…

ALL PRAISE BE YOURS

Lord we humbly bring before You our worship
For You alone are worthy
Of praises and honour and majesty
May our praise hold no pretense or denial
And may it be acceptable
In some way resembling Your sacrifice

All praise be Yours O living Lord
All praise be Yours O living Lord
For You are worthy
Now and forevermore

OUT OF JERICHO

Where are you gonna be when the walls come tumbling down
Where are you gonna be when your high hopes hit the ground
Where are you gonna be when when security you trust begins to shake
Where are you gonna be when the earth’s foundations shake

Where are you gonna be when your idols start to fall
What are you gonna have when for sin you sell your soul
Where are you gonna be when you conform and then you can’t refuse
What are you gonna do when you’ve lost your chance to choose

Out of Jericho
Out of Jericho
If you knew beyond the bounds
I know you would be running
Out of Jericho

Where are you gonna be when your diamonds turn to dust
Where are you gonna be when your riches start to rust
Where are you gonna be when luck runs out and friends are far and few
When you’re all alone tell me what are you gonna do

What you gonna do when you finally meet the man
When you stumble on the Rock tell me what’s gonna be your plan
What are you gonna do when you realize it’s more than just a story
What are you gonna do when His kingdom comes in glory

Bridge:
What are you gonna do when He’s right before your eyes
And He fills you with surprise
And those in Christ arise
Then up to heaven to receive the paradoxical prize
The former foolish now the wise
Will you be standing with your head towards the skies
