Topic: Respecting Your Marriage



Lyrics

For all the times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I’ll be forever thankful, baby
You’re the one who held me up, Never let me fall
You’re the one who saw me through, Through it all

CHORUS:
You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘cause you believed
I’m everything I am because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand, I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I’m grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don’t know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed, because I was loved by you

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
You were always there for me
Your tender wings to carry me
Light in the dark shinning your love into my life
You’ve been my inspiration, through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

CHORUS TWICE

Lyrics:

A child arrived just the other day,
came to the world in the usual way,
But there were planes to catch and bills to pay
he learned to walk while I was away
He was talking before I knew it and as he grew
he said I'm going to be like you Dad,
you know I'm going to be like you.

And the cat's in the cradle, and the silver spoon
Little Boy Blue and the Man in the Moon,
When you coming home Dad, I don't know when
We'll get together then, you know we'll have a good time then.

My son turned 10 just the other day,
Said thanks for the ball now c'mon let's play
Will you teach me to throw, I said not today,
I've got a lot to do, he said that's ok
And he walked away and he smiled and he said
You know I'm going to be like you, Dad,
you know I'm going to be like you.

And the cat's in the cradle, and the silver spoon
Little Boy Blue and the Man in the Moon,
When you coming home Dad, I don't know when
We'll get together then, you know we'll have a good time then.

He came from college just the other day,
so much like a man I just had to say,
I'm proud of you, won't you sit for a while
He shook his head and said with a smile,
What I'm feeling like, Dad, is to borrow the car keys
See you later can I have them please.

And the cat's in the cradle, and the silver spoon
Little Boy Blue and the Man in the Moon,
When you coming home son, I don't know when
We'll get together then, you know we'll have a good time then.

I've long since retired and my son's moved away
I called him up just the other day
I'd like to see you, if you don't mind
He said I'd love to Dad, if I could find the time
You see my new job's a hassle and the kids have the flu
But it's sure nice talking you Dad, it's been real nice talking to you.
And as I hung up the phone it occured to me
He'd grown up just like me, my boy was just like me.

And the cat's in the cradle, and the silver spoon
Little Boy Blue and the Man in the Moon,
When you coming home son, I don't know when
We'll get together then, you know we'll have a good time then.

And the cat's in the cradle, and the silver spoon
Little Boy Blue and the Man in the Moon,
When you coming home son, I don't know when
We'll get together then, you know we'll have a good time then

Lyrics
Across the fields, where daylight travels
I want to yield, Despite this veil of tears
When will You, When will You be returning?
I cast my lot, Beyond the fear

Across these fields, I take my pleasure
Force of Your will, No matter what may come
Through the mist, I found the treasure
Worth my life, Kingdom soon to come

Face to Face, no more alone, I shall know, as I am know
With You, I am alive   Lord with you I am satisfied

Across these fields, Beyond the Stars
Above this pale, endless universe of ours
Where dreams were born  All mysteries unfold
Where Love is a Person to Behold  (quietly)
Across the fields, where daylight travels
mmmmmm
Where Love is a person to behold

Lyrics

Starving babies crying, politicians lying
Murdered child, wars run wild
Floods take away the land
Tended by a sweating man
All gone, history’s gone
What have we done to deserve this
These bitter tears

Chorus:
Life is getting harder, too much
It’s too much, for us to bear
But you’re right there
And we’ll be coming home, coming home to rest

Children taken into care
‘cause mummy said i’d be better off there
Without dad, but he looks so sad
Sitting on the fountain in trafalgar square
Seeing in the new year, do we really care?
Do we care?, do you care?
What have we done to deserve this
These bitter tears

Chorus:
Life is getting harder, too much
It’s too much, for us to bear
But you’re right there
And we’ll be coming home, coming home to rest

Life is getting harder, too much
It’s too much, for us to bear
But you’re right there
And we’ll be coming home, coming home to rest

Coming home to rest, to rest …….
(repeats)

A choice is set before you now
Living or dying, blessing or cursing
And now, the time has come around
To turn from your fighting and rest
In his mercy

Choose life
That you might live
The life that he gives, he gives you forever
Choose life, the way that is true
From the one who chose you
Your father in heaven
Choose life

Trust the lord with all your heart
With all of your soul
And all of your being
Hold on, listen and obey
Surrender your life
Into his keeping

Choose life
That you might live
The life that he gives, he gives you forever
Choose life, the way that is true
From the one who chose you
Your father in heaven
Choose life

And the weight you’re under
Will be lifted away
And the world will wonder what happened
Here today
And you’ll stand right there and say

Choose life
That you might live
The life that he gives, he gives you forever
Choose life, the way that is true
From the one who chose you
Your father in heaven
Choose life

Lyrics

One man’s grinning from behind the fence
Waits till the camera’s adjusted
Don’t you worry ‘bout the flak you’ll get?
Aren’t you scared of getting busted?
The ball gets booted, it hits the crossbeam
Up goes the banner – JOHN 3:16 – Ohhh

He don’t worry ‘bout the critics (they tow the line)
He don’t worry ‘bout the cynics (they love to whine)
He ain’t gonna change the world but he knows who can
Bannerman

Prime time football on a Friday night
Freezing his little epidermis
Lifts that banner at the very first try
Drinks hot coffee from a thermos
He’s never missed a game
He never spells it wrong
He never talks back when they tell him “move along”, Ohhh

He don’t worry ‘bout the critics (they’ll howl for days)
He don’t worry ‘bout the cynics (they navel-gaze)
He ain’t gonna change the world but he knows who can
Bannerman

Sports fans everywhere dying for a drink
But they’ve gotta find a well first
One man’s ready with a banner and a wink
A whole lotta souls are getting well-versed
Every time I see him, I smile a little more
I can’t help praying for another try score, Ohhh

He don’t worry ‘bout the critics (they’ll howl for days)
He don’t worry ‘bout the cynics (they navel-gaze)
He ain’t gonna change the world but he knows who can
Bannerman
He don’t worry ‘bout the critics (they’ve met their match)
He don’t worry ‘bout the cynics (they sniff and scratch)
He ain’t gonna change the world but he knows who can
Bannerman

In the garden,  He fell to His knees
The time had come and He knew
The sacrifice just had to be paid
For you and me

It’s the final hour,  it’s the final hour
Before the cross,  and the victory

His soul was so grieved
He could hardly stand the pain
As He prayed to the Father
“Please take this cup from me”

It’s the final hour, it’s the final hour
Before the cross and the victory

His sweat became like drops of blood
Falling to the ground
‘cause deep inside He knew
He had to lay His body down
So a cross lay before Him
There was no other way
To save the world from it’s sin
A sacrifice just had to be paid

It’s the final hour, it’s the final hour
Before the cross and the victory

What if their race is as dark as the race we’ve run
What if all their theories are just religion for scientists
What if you wake one day to find that His kingdom has come
His will has been done on earth as it is in heaven

Shame, shame, shame

What if the Son of God really came?

And I’m a mighty man
And I could drink the distance between you and me

Well can’t you ever just believe it, yeah
