Praise the Savior

Praise the Savior, ye who know Him!
Who can tell how much we owe Him?
Gladly let us render to Him
All we are and have.

Jesus is the name that charms us;
He for conflict fits and arms us;
Nothing moves and nothing harms us
While we trust in Him.

Trust in Him, ye saints, forever;
He is faithful, changing never;
Neither force nor guile can sever
Those He loves from Him.

Keep us, Lord, O keep us cleaving
To Thyself and still believing,
Till the hour of our receiving
Promised joys with Thee.

Then we shall be where we would be,
Then we shall be what we should be;
Things that are not now, nor could be,
Soon shall be our own.

Praise Him (Jesus in the Morning)

Praise Him, praise Him.
Praise Him in the morning, praise Him at the noontime.
Praise Him, praise Him.
Praise Him when the sun goes down.

Love Him, love Him.
Love Him in the morning, love Him at the noontime.
Love Him, love Him.
Love Him when the sun goes down.

Serve Him, serve Him.
Serve Him in the morning, serve Him at the noontime.
Serve Him, serve Him.
Serve Him when the sun goes down.

The Best Gift

White fluffy clouds in the sunny sky,
Rainbows to shine when the storm goes by,
Bright colored flowers, trees stretching high,
All are a part of God’s bountiful supply.

Babies sleeping, children at play,
Songs born at night time sung in the day,
Friends and relatives giving more than I,
All are a part of God’s bountiful supply.

Springtime buds and autumn gold,
Mountain streams flowing clear and cold,
Lakes reflecting beauty all around,
All in His bountiful supply are found.

CHORUS
O how much He has given to me –
More than I ever deserve to see;
But the best gift given by the Savior to me
Is eternal life, abundant and free.

Jesus Paid It All

I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.”

CHORUS:
Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim;
I’ll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calv’ry’s Lamb.

CHORUS

Whiter than snow, yes, whiter than snow!
Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.

I’ve a Home Beyond the River

CHORUS:
I’ve a home beyond the river,
I’ve a mansion bright and fair;
I’ve a home beyond the river –
I will dwell with Jesus there.

O the blessed contemplation,
When with trouble here I sigh;
I’ve a home beyond the river,
I will enter by and by.

CHORUS

O how sweet ’twill be to meet them –
All the ransomed host above;
Sweeter still to see the Savior,
Praise Him for redeeming love.

Only One Life

It matters so little how much you may own,
The places you’ve been, or the people you’ve known;
For it all comes to nothing when placed at His feet;
It’s nothing to Jesus, just mem’ries to keep.

You may take all the treasures from far away lands,
Take all the riches you can hold in your hands,
And take all the pleasures your money can buy,
But what will you have when it’s your time to die?

CHORUS:
Only one life, so soon it will pass;
Only what’s done for Christ will last;
Only one chance to do His will,
So give to Jesus all your days.
It’s the only life that pays,
When you recall you have but one life!

The days pass so swiftly, the months come and go.
The years melt away like new fallen snow;
Spring turns to summer, summer to fall,
Autumn brings winter, then death comes to call.

CHORUS

I Will Give Thanks

O Lord, I will give thanks to Thee forever.
I will give thanks to Thee, my Lord.
For by Thy hand salvation was planned
And hope for man was restored.
O Lord, I will give thanks to Thee forever.
I will give thanks to Thee, my Lord.
For life is in Thee, and ThyThy life in me,
So I will live eternally.

I will rejoice in the Lord, I will praise His name,
I will bless the Lord all the time.
His praise shall continually be in my mouth,
For He reigns in victory sublime!

O Lord, I will give thanks to Thee forever.
I will give thanks to Thee, my Lord!
Through all of my days I’ll sing Thy praise;
Thy name forever be adored!

O Lord, I will give thanks to Thee forever.
I will give thanks to Thee, my Lord.
For life is in Thee, and ThyThy life in me,
So I will live eternally.

It Is Well

When peace like a river attendeth my way;
When sorrows like sea billows roll,
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say:
“It is well, it is well with my soul.”

CHORUS:
It is well (It is well with my soul) with my soul (It is well with my soul),
It is well, it is well with my soul.

My sin – O the bliss of this glorious tho’t –
My sin – not in part, but the whole
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more;
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

And Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll,
The trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend.
“Even so” – it is well with my soul.

CHORUS:
It is well with my soul.
It is well, it is well with my soul.

People to People

How do you share the love of Jesus with a lonely man?
How do you tell a hungry man about the bread of life?
How do you tell a thirsty man about the living water of the Lord?
How do you tell him of His Word?

CHORUS:
People who know go to people who need to know Jesus.
People who love go to people alone without Jesus;
For there are people who need to see, people who need to love,
People who need to know God’s redeeming love.
People who see go to those who are blind without Jesus,
And this is people to people, yes, people to people,
All sharing together God’s love.

How do you tell a dying man about eternal life?
How do you tell an orphan child about the Father’s love?
How do you tell a man who’s poor about the wondrous riches of the Lord?
How do you tell him of His Word?

How do you tell a loveless world that God himself is love?
How do you help a man who’s down to lift his eyes above?
How do you tell a bleeding man about the healing power of the Lord?
How do you tell him of His Word?

May Christ Be Seen in Me

O Lord, I give myself to Thee, and all that I possess;
I lay aside my sinful pride and claim Thy righteousness.
My will lies shattered at Thy feet, I pray Thy will be done;
My only plea to live for Thee and magnify Thy Son.

CHORUS:
May Christ be seen in me, O Lord,
Hear Thou my earnest plea;
O take me, fill me, use me, Lord
Till Christ be seen in me.

O humbly may I serve Thee, Lord, as in Thy will I tread;
And may I live anew in Christ, as risen from the dead.
Then closely walking by Thy side, may love flow out thro’ me,
That those whom Thou shalt lead my way may too find life in Thee.

Looking Back

The children were growing, as all of them do. Our oldest son started out singing soprano and alto, moved to tenor, and by the time we recorded these tunes, he was our bass. It was so fun to have a family that could sing four-part harmony! And another change on this recording was that we added a family member. Luis, our adopted 11 year old son from Costa Rica, joined the group and debuted on this album. You can hear his cute Spanish accent a little on his solo. Of course, Kevin, Kelly, and Kristi (our other children) were “pros” by this time.
