Old Fashioned Christmas sung by Jimmy Martin





I can see the holly in the window
Decorations on the tree
Stockings hung by the fireplace
Hung there with tenderness and glee

Soon old santa will be coming
There'll be lots of presents neath the tree
Back home at this old fashion Christmas
The whole family will make it complete

Yes this time of year is rather special to me
When the snow whitens the mountains
The valleys and the trees
Memories form a picture in my mind from days of old
Of an old fashion Christmas
And the family together back at home

I can see my sisters and my brothers, John & Roy
Everyone so happy and all so full of joy
Daddy and mother admire each one of us so dear
And the children are playing together
And all of them so full of cheer

Yes this memory of home in my heart
Is a memory that time will never take away
Because it lives all over again each year on Christmas day

So let me say to you,
If you are home or faraway
I hope you'll have an old fashion Christmas
And a Happy New Year's Day

Soon old santa will be coming
There'll be lots of presents neath the tree
Back home at this old fashion Christmas
The whole family will make it complete

Beautiful Star of Bethlehem sung by Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys





Oh beautiful Star of Bethlehem
Shining afar through shadows dim
Giving a light for those who long have gone
And guiding the wise men on their way
Unto the place where Jesus lay

Oh beautiful Star of Bethlehem shine on (Shine On)
Oh beautiful Star (beautiful, beautiful Star) of Bethlehem (Bethlehem)
Shine upon us until the Glory dawns
Gives the light to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day
Oh beautiful Star of Bethlehem, shine on (shine on)

Oh beautiful Star the hope of light
Guiding the pilgrims through the night
Over the mountains till the break of dawn (the dawn)
Into the light of perfect day
It will give out a lovely ray
Oh beautiful Star of Bethlehem shine on (shine on)

Oh beautiful Star (beautiful, beautiful Star) of Bethlehem (Bethlehem )
Shine upon us until the Glory dawns
Gives the light to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day
Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on (shine on)

Oh, beautiful Star, the hope of rest
For the redeemed the good and blest
Yonder in Glory when the crown is won (is won)
For Jesus now that Star divine
Brighter and Brighter He will shine
Oh beautiful Star of Bethlehem shine on (shine on)

Oh beautiful Star (beautiful, beautiful Star) of Bethlehem (Bethlehem)
Shine upon us until the Glory dawns (glory dawn)
Give us the light to light the way unto the land of perfect day
Oh beautiful Star of Bethlehem shine on (shine on)

The Old Country Church sung by Hank Williams, Sr. and Little Jimmy Dickens





There's a place dear to me, where I'm longing to be
With my friends at the old country church
There with mother we went and our Sundays we spent
With our friends at the old country church

Precious years of memories
Oh, what joy they bring to me
How I long once more to be
With my friends at the old country church

How I wish that today all the people would pray
Like we prayed in that old country church
If they'd only confess, Jesus surely would bless
As He did in that old country church

Precious years of memories
Oh, what joy they bring to me
How I long once more to be
With my friends at the old country church...........

Two Coats sung by Patty Loveless




Two coats were before me
An old and a new
I asked my sweet Master
Oh what must I do

The old coat was ugly
So tattered and torn
The other a new one
Had never been worn

I'll tell you the best thing
I ever did do
I took off the old coat
And put on the new

The first man was earthly
And made from the ground
We bore all his image
The whole world around

The next was my Savior
From Heaven so fair
He bought me this new coat
You now see me wear

I'll tell you the best thing
I ever did do
I took off the old coat
And put on the new

Now this coat it suits me
And keeps me so warm
It's good in the winter
It's good in the storm

My Savior has dressed me
In a garment so rare
He bought me this new coat
You now see me wear

I'll tell you the best thing
I ever did do
I took off the old coat
And put on the new

I'll tell you the best thing
I ever did do
I took off the old coat
And put on the new.........

BLESSED VETERANS' DAY


The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war. Douglas MacArthur


BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC


The United States Army Field Band performs "Battle Hymn of the Republic". Lyrics by Julia Ward Howe; Music by William Steffe; Setting by Peter J. Wilhousky and Arranged by James Neilson. Led by First Lieutenant Alexandra Borza.


Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword;
His truth is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps;
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I can read His righteous sentence in the dim and flaring lamps,
His truth is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!  GLORY! GLORY! HALLELUJAH!    
His truth is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me;
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free!
While God is marching on.

GLORY! GLORY! HALLELUJAH! HIS TRUTH IS MARCHING ON.
GLORY! GLORY! HALLELUJAH! HIS TRUTH IS MARCHING ON.
AMEN......AMEN.......

GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS AND VETERANS AND THOSE WHO PAID THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE

SEVEN HILLSIDES sung by RICKY SKAGGS and KENTUCKY THUNDER





All night I've wrestled Jacob's Angels
And 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?
What will I say, What will I say, What can I say?...........

Ashamed to Own the Blessed Savior sung by Carl and Pearl Butler






Upon the lonely tree of Calvary
My Savior took the blame for me
Now do you think that I'd disown him
When His own blood He shed for me

Ashamed to own the Blessed Savior
Ashamed of Him who died for you
Someday I know that you'll be sorry
For He will be ashamed of you

Oh brother how can you deny him
Ashamed to own God's gift of love
Our only promise of tomorrow
Our Blessed Savior from above

Ashamed to own the Blessed Savior
Ashamed of Him who died for you
Someday I know that you'll be sorry
For He will be ashamed of you

Oh Lord above look down upon me
Though I'm not worthy now to pray
Please cleanse my sin and make me holy
That You would own me everyday

Ashamed to own the Blessed Savior
Ashamed of Him who died for you
Someday I know that you'll be sorry
For He will be ashamed of you........

When Angels Sing:  Rhonda Vincent




When love is faithful, strong and true
And the breath of life is given you
When flowers bloom in early spring
That's the time in Heaven when the Angels sing

Where Angels sing above the blue
The promise of a world that's new
And tear dimmed eyes no more will be
When the Angels sing for you and me

Be a shining light as you pass through
Remember the promise He gave to you
Hold to His word trust everything
Live forever in Heaven where the Angels sing

Where Angels sing above the blue
The promise of a world that's new
And tear dimmed eyes no more will be
When the Angels sing for you and me
When the Angels sing for you and me...........

Jesus Makes House Calls sung by Boxcar Willie




Jesus makes house calls 24 hours a day
All you have to do is bow your head and pray
Now if your heart is troubled hear what I have to say
Jesus makes house calls 24 hours a day

Rich or poor black or white
Anytime day or night
Jesus makes house calls 24 hours a day
And all you have to do is bow your head and pray

Jesus makes house calls 24 hours a day
And all you have to do is bow your head and pray
Now if your mind is troubled hear what I have to say
Jesus makes house calls 24 hours a day

You don't go no where you don't stand in line
He'll be right there it don't cost a dime
Jesus makes house calls 24 hours a day
And all you have to do is bow your head and pray

He ain't got no phone and you can't write
But He'll come to you and make things right
Jesus makes house calls 24 hours a day
All you have to do is bow your head and pray

All you have to do is bow your head and pray.......

Dark and Stormy is the Desert sung by Dr. Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys




Dark and stormy is the desert,
Through which pilgrims make their way;
Yet beyond this vale of sorrows
Lie the fields of endless day.

O, young soldier, are you weary
Of the roughness of the way?
Does your strength begin to fail you,
And your vigor to decay?

Jesus, Jesus, will go with you,
He will lead you to his throne;
He whose thunder shakes creation,
He who bids the planets roll.

'Round him are ten thousand angels,
Ready to obey his command;
They'll all be there to hover round you,
Till you reach the Heavenly land.

There, on flowery hills of pleasure,
Lie the fields of endless rest,
Love, and joy, and peace forever,
Reign and triumph in your breast.

Broadminded sung by the Louvin Brothers






That word broadminded is spelled s-i-n
I read in my Bible, they shall not enter in
For Jesus will answer, "depart, I never knew you"
That word broadminded is spelled s-i-n

Some people say they gamble now and then for pleasure
And drink a little whiskey just to please a friend
They say it's really nothing, you've got to be broadminded
That word in my Bible is spelled s-i-n

That word broadminded is spelled s-i-n
I read in my Bible, they shall not enter in
For Jesus will answer, Depart, I never knew you
That word broadminded is spelled s-i-n

That broadminded mother goes out and joins a party
There's nothing wrong in drinking and dancing with a friend
And then on Sunday morning, she'll say she loves her savior
She should be begging God to forgive her of her sin

That word broadminded is spelled s-i-n
I read in my Bible, they shall not enter in
For Jesus will answer, Depart, I never knew you
That word broadminded is spelled s-i-n

For to be carnally minded is death
But to be spiritually minded is life and peace
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God
For it is not subject to the law of God
Neither, indeed, can be
You'll find your word "broadminded" means sin if you'll read

That word broadminded is spelled s-i-n
I read in my Bible, they shall not enter in
For Jesus will answer, Depart, I never knew you
That word broadminded is spelled s-i-n

Help is on the Way, Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver




A woman in the Bible days,
her last meal almost gone,
But God sent Elijah,
to make his word known,
He said "woman don't you worry,
for God sent me today,
And before you even asked Him, help was on the way

Just hold on a little longer, help is on the way,
A brighter day is coming,
for those who believe and pray,
Help won't help tomorrow, if you give up today,
Just hold on a little longer, help is on the way.

Troubles of this life come by, and burdens get you down,
You think no one is listening, you think no one's around,
Just remember what his word says, trust him and obey,
Keep your eyes towards the Heavens,
cause help is on the way.

Just hold on a little longer, help is on the way
A brighter day is coming,
For those who believe and pray,
Help won't help tomorrow, if you give up today,
Just hold a little longer, help is on the way.

Help won't help tomorrow; if you give up today,
Just hold on a little longer, help is on the way......
