Satan Is Real, sung by the Louvin Brothers






Satan is real, working in spirit
You can see him and hear him in this world every day
Satan is real, working with power
He can tempt you and lead you astray

I attended service at a little church in the country not long ago
A prayer was led by an old country preacher
Who then raised his hands as everyone stood and sang
"My God is Real"
A warm breeze through the open windows
Brought in the smell of new mown hay in a nearby field
And the singing of birds could be heard in the moment of silence
As the preacher opened the bible to read
And then a little old man stood up, bent with age
His hair thin and white
And said, "Preacher, tell them that Satan is real too"
You can hear him in songs that give praise to idols
And sinful things of this world
You can see him in the destruction of homes torn apart
I know that Satan is real
For once I had a happy home
I was loved and respected by my family
I was looked upon as a leader in my community
And then Satan came into my life
I grew selfish and un-neighborly
My friends turned against me
And finally, my home was broken apart
My children took their paths into a world of sin
Yes preacher, it's sweet to know that God is real
And to know that in Him all things are possible
And we know that Heaven is a real place
Where joy shall never end
But sinner friend, if you're here today
Satan is real too
And hell is a real place
A place of everlasting punishment"

Satan is real, working in spirit
You can see him and hear him in this world every day
Satan is real, working with power
He can tempt you and lead you astray.......

I Pressed Through the Crowd sung by Charlie Sizemore




Like the prodigal son
I drifted in darkness
The clutches of sin
They clung to my soul
My burdens were heavy
My sins were so many
But when I touched Jesus
He made me whole

I pressed through the crowd
Reached out and touched Jesus
The Sweet Holy Spirit
Came into my soul
I knew I'd been changed
My sins all forgiven
'Cause when I touched Jesus
He made me whole

Like the woman who tried
Many physicians
But when she touched Jesus
Was healed on that day
My sickness was different
My sins were so many
But when I touched Jesus
He washed them away

I pressed through the crowd
Reached out and touched Jesus
The Sweet Holy Spirit
Came into my soul
I knew I'd been changed
My sins all forgiven
'Cause when I touched Jesus
He made me whole

Yes, when I touched Jesus
He made me whole...........

That Home Far Away, sung by the Stanley Brothers




Oh Lord have mercy on this weary soul of mine
May I walk in your light every day
And when I've crossed that deep silent river
I'll be happy in that Home far away

I wandered away from the straight and the narrow
Driftin' like a ship lost at sea
No lighthouse to guide my weary footsteps
Till Jesus answered my plea

Oh Lord have mercy on this weary soul of mine
May I walk in your light every day
And when I've crossed that deep silent river
I'll be happy in that Home far away

The lights are bright no longer I'm blinded
From the bondage of sin I'm free
He lifted me up to join Salvation
I'll live on eternally

Oh Lord have mercy on this weary soul of mine
May I walk in your light every day
And when I've crossed that deep silent river
I'll be happy in that Home far away

Oh Lord have mercy on this weary soul of mine
May I walk in your light every day
And when I've crossed that deep silent river
I'll be happy in that Home far away..............

The Family Who Prays sung by the Louvin Brothers






The family who prays
Will never be parted
Their circle in Heaven unbroken shall stand
God will say "enter, my good faithful servants"
The family who prays never shall part

Satan has parted fathers and mothers
Filling their hearts with his envy and hate
Heading their pathways down to destruction
Leaving their children like orphans to stray

The family who prays
Will never be parted
Their circle in Heaven unbroken shall stand
God will say "enter, my good faithful servants"
The family who prays never shall part

Wars and tornadoes are taking our loved ones
Leaving us tearful with sad aching hearts
But we shall join them over the river
For the family who prays never shall part

The family who prays
Will never be parted
Their circle in Heaven unbroken shall stand
God will say "enter, my good faithful servants"
The family who prays never shall part.......

Reunion in Heaven sung by Flatt and Scruggs




As so often down here we'll have a reunion
Our loved ones and friends will be gathered around
Some faces are missed they have gone home to Heaven
They will be there with Jesus till the trumpet shall sound

What a wonderful time we'll have up in Glory
With our Blessed Redeemer forever we'll see
And a crown he will give on that great judgement morning
What a happy reunion in Heaven will be

No crepes on the door in that beautiful city,
No sorrow or pain never more over there
But a body we'll have in the Saviour's own likeness
And a mansion Jesus said he would go to prepare

What a wonderful time we'll have up in Glory
With our Blessed Redeemer forever we'll see
And a crown he will give on that great judgement morning
What a happy reunion in Heaven will be........

Amazing Grace sung by the Stanley Brothers

 



Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see

Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace my fears relieved
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've just as long to sing God's praise
As when we first begun.........

When I Travel My Last Mile sung by Rhonda Vincent

For Daddy-August 6, 2002




Someday when I travel my last mile here
The call will be coming for me
I'll enter the lifeboat that will be near
To carry me over the sea

He'll hold my hand, as over death's river I go
Then safe, I'll be, in beautiful Heaven I know
My bark shall sail safely, the waves dash high
For Jesus will be at my side

He'll still the rough waters, when bye and bye
I'm crossing the river so wide
He'll hold my hand, hold to my hand
As over death's river I go
Then safe I'll be, safe I shall be
In Beautiful Heaven I know

I'm ready to go to that golden shore
To live there while ages shall roll
I want to see Jesus and Saints of yore
In Heaven the Home of the soul

He'll hold my hand, hold to my hand
As over death's river I go
Then safe I'll be, safe I shall be
In Beautiful Heaven I know

Then safe, I Will be, in Beautiful Heaven I know........

Stormy Waters sung by Jimmy Martin






Though a pilgrim on earth I may journey alone
Knowing not what the future may hold may hold, may hold
I’d rather have Jesus and sing a sweet song
Than to covet their silver and gold

Stormy waters all around me and the tempest and fury may roll
But I have my dear Saviour, how he helps me nobody can know
When it seems I’m forsaken and my earthly friends misunderstand
Stormy waters surround me, but I’ll hold to God’s unchanging hand

Though I have disappointments so often I sigh
Stormy waters around me may roll
I'll hold to the hand of my Saviour so dear
He’s the Shepherd that's keeping my soul

Stormy waters all around me and the tempest and fury may roll
But I have my dear Saviour, how he helps me nobody can know
When it seems I'm forsaken and my earthly friends misunderstand
Stormy waters surrounds me, but I'll hold to God's unchanging hand

Stormy waters all around me and the tempest and fury may roll
But I have my dear Saviour, how he helps me nobody can know
When it seems I'm forsaken and my earthly friends misunderstand
Stormy waters surround me, but I'll hold to God's unchanging hand...........

A Voice From on High sung by Bill Monroe





I hear a voice callin'
It must be our Lord
It's comin' from Heaven on high

I hear a voice callin'
I've gained a reward
For the land where we never shall die

The Savior has paid a great price for me
He gave His life on Calvary
So I'll follow His footsteps up the narrow way
And be ready to meet Him when He calls on that day

I hear a voice callin'
It must be our Lord
It's comin' from Heaven on high

I hear a voice callin'
I've gained a reward
For the land where we never shall die

He died on the cross, the old rugged cross
That we would be saved from sin and not lost
So I'll follow His footsteps up the narrow way
And we'll pay our debts on that great judgment day

I hear a voice callin'
It must be our Lord
It's comin' from Heaven on high

I hear a voice callin'
I've gained a reward
For the land where we never shall die

Standing Room Only, sung by Loretta Lynn




Standing room only, not even room to kneel and pray
Standing room only on the Judgement Day
Last night I had an awful dream that the end of time had come
The trumpet had been sounded and life on earth has done

An angel stood, one foot on land the other foot on sea
And as I tried to kneel and pray a voice said unto me
There's standing room only, it's too late now to pray
There's standing room only, this is the Judgement Day.

People filled each church and churchyard
Just as far as I could see
I heard the pitiful cry for mercy and then I realized it was me
I saw the Saviour did appear as he split the eastern sky
I saw tears of joy on a Christian's face and I heard the sinners cry.

And as I tried to touch his hand with one last people plea
I cried again have mercy, have mercy Lord on me
I saw a tear come to his eye as he turned my soul away
I didn't know him yesterday and he knew me not today.

The earth was burning all around
The world wound up in smoke
And as the flames came off me
Thank God I awoke.

Then I got out of bed, and got down on my knees
And you should've heard me pray
For in my dream I witnessed God's Great Judgement Day
Standing room only, for God's Great Judgement Day.........

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!!!!


Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue


SUNG BY TOBY KEITH



Dedicated to Franzi Collins in proud recognition of her perseverance and patriotic achievement of a long held aspiration.  Congratulations!





American girls and American guys
We'll always stand up and salute
We'll always recognize
When we see Old Glory flying
There's a lot of men dead
So we can sleep in peace at night when we lay down our head

My daddy served in the Army
Where he lost his right eye but he flew a Flag out in our yard
Until the day that he died
He wanted my mother, my brother, my sister and me
To grow up and live happy
In the land of the free

Now this nation that I love has fallen under attack
A mighty sucker punch came flyin' in from somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see clearly
Through our big black eye
Man, we lit up your world
Like the Fourth of July

Hey Uncle Sam, put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty started shakin' her fist
And the eagle will fly man, it's gonna be hell
When you hear mother freedom start ringin' her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you
Brought to you courtesy of the Red, White and Blue

Justice will be served and the battle will rage
This big dog will fight when you rattle his cage
And you'll be sorry that you messed with
The U.S. of A.
'Cause we'll put a boot in your ass
It's the American way

Hey Uncle Sam put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty started shakin' her fist
And the Eagle will fly it's gonna be hell
When you hear mother freedom start ringin' her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you
Brought to you courtesy of the Red, White and Blue

Oh oh of the Red, White and Blue
Oh oh of my Red, White and Blue

The Weapon of Prayer sung by the Louvin Brothers




In that land across the sea,
There’s a job for you and me
Though our presence there may not be found
We must stay each night and day
On the battle line and pray
We must never lay our weapons down.

We don’t have to be a soldier in a uniform
To be of service over there
While the boys so bravely stand
With the weapons made by hand
Let us trust and use the weapon of prayer.

Many thousand miles away
Someone shed their blood today
With a heart so true and brave they’ve gone
To a war that’s yours and mine,
Let us join the battle line
With a weapon that will save our home.

When the planes and tanks and guns
Have done all that they can do
And the mighty bombs have rained and fell
Still the helpful Hand above
Holds a weapon made of love
And against Him none on Earth prevail.
