Track Name: In My Father's House
In my Father’s house
There are mansions…many rooms
And He is coming back
Could be coming back soon!
Ahh, He’s been preparing a room
Ahh, He could be coming back soon
Ahh!
Track Name: Glory Bound
Your life was so beautiful
Wide-eyed
Innocent
Carved out of a story book
Rapture
And wedding bliss

And now you are wounded
A broken heart
A broken life
You’ve fallen from the skies
Bruised and betrayed
Fallen

Don’t stop believin’
Take hold
Of eternal life
Don’t stop believin’
Don’t stop
You’ve fought the good fight!

While young you were protected
Nourished
Defended
But now you lie naked
Wide open
Defenseless

Your demons consume you
Captive
Ravished
They bend you with their rumors
Scar you
With temptation

Don’t stop believin’
Don’t stop
You’ve run a good race
Don’t stop believin’
Don’t stop
You’re Glory bound!

You used to walk in sunshine
Poured out
Sparkling
Your dance was well attended
Free style
Peaceful

The dark night is upon you
The treasures you own
Can’t save you
Your life is uncertain
The war you now wage
Is hidden

Don’t stop believin’
Don’t stop
You’ve run a good race
Don’t stop believin’
Don’t stop
You’re Glory bound!

Your life was so beautiful
Wide-eyed
Innocent
Track Name: Sinned
Well I’ve sinned in my thoughts
Sinned in my deeds
There’ve been long lonely nights
I’ve felt my heart bleed!

And I’ve traveled alone
With forbidden pleasures
I’ve had lust in my heart
Like a needle stuck
Deep down inside of my soul
Deep down inside of my soul

And tell me Lord
Is there a Light in the night?
Hey Lord
Is there a Light in my night?
Oh Lord
Is there a Light in this night?
And if there is
How about tonight?
How about tonight?

Cos I’ve sinned in my thoughts
Sinned in my deeds
There’ve been long lonely nights
I’ve felt my heart bleed!

And I’ve traveled alone
With forbidden pleasures
I’ve had lust in my heart
Like a needle stuck
Deep down inside of my soul
Deep down inside of my soul

And tell me Lord
Is there a Light in the night?
Hey Lord
Is there a Light in my night?
Oh Lord
Is there a Light in the night?
And if there is
How about tonight?
How about tonight?
Track Name: His Burden Is Light
Hello my friend I see you’ve climbed on up
Let me show you life at the top
These heights aren’t as real
As the power you gonna feel

Power
Deep down inside you
Power
Until that is all there is
Power
Raw, steel power
Using you

Hey now you’ve fallen down
I can show you
The poor side of town
These lows aren’t as real
As the blues you gonna feel

Blues
Deep down inside of you
Blues
Until there is nothing left but
Blues
Real mean Blues
Consuming you

Now you know I’ve seen you around
Let me introduce you to my side of town
Where the burden is light
And His yoke is easy!
Easy!
Track Name: Your Life Moves On
He came and He walked among us
He brought us peace
Then He went away
And in a few centuries
We screwed it all up
But time moves on
Your life moves on
On and on

And now it has come to this
A wicked world
Satan is free
To roam the earth
But time moves on
And the earth still turns
Your life goes by
On and on

And you may want to run and hide
Crawl under a rock
But deep in your heart
You still know
That time goes by
And the earth still turns
Your life moves on
On and on

And you may want to run and hide
Crawl under a rock
But deep in your heart
You still know
That time goes by
And the earth still turns
Your life moves on
On and on

And at the end of days
We’ll sing a song of praise
Jesus is here to rule the earth
But your life goes on
And the earth still turns
Time goes by
On and On
Track Name: In His Loving Arms Again
When you wake up in the morning
Wipe the tears out of your eyes
Did you ever think that tomorrow could be
A complete and total surprise?

Break down and cry
Break right down and cry
When the load is so heavy
You are in His lovin’ arms once again!

When you wake up in the morning
And you find you are all alone
Why’d you ever think that tomorrow would be
Any different than today?

Break down and cry
Break right down and cry
When the weight is too heavy
You are in His lovin’ arms once again!

In the evening as you lay down
And the light begins to fade
All at once you see quite clearly
The full extent of your pain

Break down and cry
Break right down and cry
When the world is so heavy
You are in His lovin’ arms once again!

Finally it is sunset
And the music fills the air
As the angels gather ‘round you
You are in His everlasting care!

Break down and cry
Break right down and cry
When the load is so heavy
You are in His lovin’ arms once again!
Track Name: Beautiful Houses
There are beautiful houses in my neighborhood
And the streets of my city are paved in gold
And the cloak of the righteous is all that I need
As I live with the saints eternally

Oh what a beautiful morning
The Lord has brought this day!
[Even] Though I’d sinned, He washed them all away
By His grace and by His love
New Jerusalem will be my home
And I am freed from all of Satan’s treachery

Oh the days are not counted
And the nights are not long
And the sun burns eternal from afar
And the Lord walks among us
And we see by His Light
And His Glory keeps us warm – evermore

There are beautiful houses in my neighborhood
And the streets of my city are paved in gold
And the cloak of the righteous is all that I need
As I live with the saints eternally

I remember quite clearly
When I rose up from the ground
A trumpet blast…with the angels all around
Well there was a loud command
I looked up and saw my dad
As a young man, rising (up) in a cloud

My boy Johnny did not rise up
On that glorious day
And I called out his name, all in vain
But an angel stayed close by me
And said the Lord would make it very clear
Even if it might take a thousand years

Well the Lord came to my house
And He opened up a book
And I saw my boy’s life, day by day
And I saw how John rejected
The Lord’s call and His Word
And I knew in my heart the Lord was just

Oh what a beautiful morning
The Lord has brought this day!
Though I’d sinned, He washed them all away
By His grace and by His love
New Jerusalem will be my home
And I am freed from all of Satan’s treachery

Oh the days are not counted
And the nights are not long
And the sun burns eternal from afar
And the Lord walks among us
And we see by His Light
And His Glory keeps us warm – evermore

There are beautiful houses in my neighborhood
And the streets of my city are paved in gold
And the cloak of the righteous is all that I need
As I live with the saints eternally
