HAPPY FATHER'S DAY

How Far Is Heaven sung by Rhonda Vincent




A little girl was waiting for her Daddy one day
He was called to Heaven she heard her Mommy say
Come to Mama darling, please do not cry
Daddy's gone to Heaven, away up in the sky

How far is Heaven?
When can I go?
To see my Daddy, he's there I know
How far is Heaven, let's go tonight
I want my Daddy to hold me tight

He was called so suddenly, and could not say goodbye
Daddy's gone to Heaven, we'll meet him by and by
The little girl trembled, the tears she could not hide
She looked up towards Heaven and then she replied

How far is Heaven?
When can I go?
To see my Daddy, he's there I know
How far is Heaven, let's go tonight
I want my Daddy to hold me tight.....

Jesus Remembered Me sung by Hank and Audrey Williams





I was all alone and drifting on a lonely sea of sin
Nothing but darkness, no sunshine within
I lifted my eyes, to the Lord in the sky
And Jesus remembered me

Jesus remembered me
And so He set me free
Once I was blinded, but now I can see
Glory to God, He remembered me

Now the sun is shining, I'm happy and free
No more sorrow, no troubles to see
I'm going home to glory, my Savior to see
Glory to God, He remembered me

Jesus remembered me
And so He set me free
Once I was blinded, but now I can see
Glory to God, He remembered me

When He talked to his disciples at the sea of Galilee
He said He'd remember a mortal like me
I asked for his Blessing down on my knees
And glory to God, He remembered me

Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb sung by Red Allen





Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?
Are you washed in the Blood of the Lamb?
Are you fully trusting in His Grace this hour?
Are you washed in the Blood of the Lamb?

Are you washed in the Blood
In the soul-cleansing Blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the Blood of the Lamb?


Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin
And be washed in the Blood of the Lamb
There's a fountain flowing for the soul unclean
O, be washed in the Blood of the Lamb

Are you washed in the Blood
In the soul-cleansing Blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the Blood of the Lamb?

Blessed Memorial Day 2018

Seven Hillsides sung by Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder




All night I wrestled Jacob's Angel
Prayed with Matthew, Luke and John
Struggling to find the words to face the task
That comes upon the blood red dawn

I've buried men before their time
Of alcohol and blackened lung
But how to bury seven of these Appalachian miners' sons
Who stormed the beaches wave on wave
And sailed home to these rocky graves
In family plots that bear their names

Tomorrow I'll walk up Seven Hillsides
Tremble before my flock on Seven Hillsides
Seven sorrows, seven sons, seven Mothers and every one
Will turn to me for the Word of God, what does this mean
And there I'll stand, Good Book in hand
A shepherd to these precious lambs
What will I say, What will I say, What can I say

To tell the truth I'd never thought much about the Will of God before
But called to preach at seventeen I was in love with fiery words
And not much more
The time has come to keep the Faith for others shattered by their loss
Remind them of the Loving God whose son like theirs paid the cost
To save a sad and wicked world, through sacrifice our love is heard
And pray that I believe those words

Tomorrow I'll walk up Seven Hillsides
Tremble before my flock on Seven Hillsides
Seven sorrows, seven sons, seven Mothers and every one
Will turn to me for the Word of God, what does this mean
And there I'll stand, Good Book in hand
A shepherd to these precious lambs
What will I say, What will I say, What can I say..........

Amazing Grace sung by Dr. Ralph Stanley




Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once 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

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

Green Pastures in the Sky sung by Dr. Ralph Stanley




The Shepard leads me out to green pastures
Where the clean sweet waters flow
The evil shadows are all around me
I'm not afraid, He's there I know

The storms will come and rage around me
I'm not afraid, He is my shield
When I am weary, alone and forsaken
He lifts me up, He is so real

Though I may stray, into fields that are barren
Where danger awaits me, I may go
The Master will search, until He finds me
He'll guide me back into the fold

I'm one of His sheep, He'll love and protect me
When I call He's there close by
The day grows nigh, for that final journey
To that Green Pasture, in the sky......

If I Could Hear My Mother Pray Again sung by Loretta Lynn with Geraldine Wilburn




How sweet and happy seem those days of which I dream
When memory recalls them now and then
And with what rapture sweet my weary heart would beat
If I could hear my mother pray again

If I could hear my mother pray again
If I could hear her tender voice as then
How happy I would be would mean so much to me
If I could hear my mother pray again

She used to pray that I, on Jesus would rely
And always walk the shining gospel way
So trusting still his love I'll seek that home above
For I shall meet my mother some sweet day

If I could hear my mother pray again
If I could hear her tender voice as then
How happy I would be would mean so much to me
If I could hear my mother pray again...

Jesus Savior Pilot Me sung by The Crist Family




Jesus, Savior, pilot me,
Over life's tempestuous sea;
Unknown waves before me roll,
Hiding rock and treach'rous shoal;
Chart and compass come from Thee:
Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

As a mother stills her child,
Thou canst hush the ocean wild;
Boist'rous waves obey Thy will
When Thou say'st to them, "Be still!"
Wondrous Sov'reign of the sea,
Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

When at last I reach the shore,
And the fearful breakers roar
'Twixt me and the peaceful rest,
Then, while leaning on Thy breast,
May I hear Thee say to me,
"Fear not, I will pilot thee."
Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

The River of Jordan sung by The Louvin Brothers





To the River Of Jordan our Savior went one day
And we read that John The Baptist met Him there
And when John baptized Jesus in Jordan's rushing waters
The mighty power of God filled the air

I'm on my way to the River Of Jordan
Gonna wade right in to the rushing waters
I'm going down, I'm going down to the River Of Jordan
And let the cool waters cleanse my soul

King Naaman was stricken with dreaded leprosy
And he sent for the man of God to pray
But Elisha said to Naaman "go dip yourself in Jordan"
And let the cool waters wash your spots away

So he went right down to the River Of Jordan
He waded right in the rushing waters
He dipped himself, he dipped himself in the River Of Jordan
And the cool waters made him whole

The River Of Jordan is many miles away
And this mighty river I may never see
But I'll find myself an altar in an old-fashioned church
And my River of Jordan, that will be

Well, I'm on my way to the River Of Jordan
Gonna wade right in to the rushing waters
I'm going down, I'm going down to the River Of Jordan
And let the cool waters cleanse my soul

Just a Closer Walk with Thee sung by Patsy Cline and Willie Nelson




I am weak but Thou art strong
Jesus keep me from all wrong
I'll be satisfied as long
As I walk, let me walk close to Thee

Just a closer walk with Thee
Grant it Jesus, is my plea
Daily walking close to Thee
Let it be, Dear Lord, let it be

And when my feeble life is o'er
And time for me will be no more
Guide me gently, safely Home
To thy Kingdom shore to Thy shore

Just a closer walk with Thee
Grant it Jesus, is my plea
Daily walking close to Thee
Let it be, Dear Lord, let it be.......

Where the Soul Never Dies sung by Hank Williams, Sr.




To Canaan's land I'm on my way
Where the soul never dies
My darkest nights will turn to day
Where the soul never dies

No sad farewells
No tear-dimmed eyes
Where all is peace, joy and love
And the soul never dies

A rose is blooming there for me
Where the soul never dies
And I shall spend Eternity
Where the soul never dies

No sad farewells
No tear-dimmed eyes
Where all is peace, joy and love
And the soul never dies

I'm on my way to that fair land
Where the soul never dies
Where there will be no parting hand
And the soul never dies

No sad farewells
No tear-dimmed eyes
Where all is peace, joy and love
And the soul never dies...........

One Day at a Time sung by Kitty Wells




I'm only human, I'm just a woman
Help me believe and all I can be and all that I am
Show me the stairway I have to climb
And Lord for my sake please teach me to take one day at a time

One day at a time sweet Jesus (Sweet Jesus)
That's all I'm asking of you
Just give me the strength to do everyday
What I have to do

For yesterday's gone sweet Jesus
And tomorrow may never be mine
So help me I pray show me the way
One day at a time

Lord do you remember
When you walked among men
Well, Jesus you know you're looking below
It's worse now than then

It's pushing and shoving
Bending my mind
So Lord, for my sake teach me to take
One day at a time.

One day at a time sweet Jesus (Sweet Jesus)
That's all I'm asking of you
Just give me the strength to do
Everyday what I have to do.

For yesterday's gone sweet Jesus
And tomorrow may never be mine
So help me I pray show me the way
One day at a time.

Lord, help me I pray show me the way
One day at a time...
