I Like to Hear Him Preach It // Opening
Jimmy Martin
Chorus
(D) I like to hear them preach it
(G) I like to hear them (D) pray
I like to hear them talk about the (E) good ole’ gospel (D) way
They read it from the Bible
(G) And they all begin to (D) shout
And I’m convinced that’s one thing that (A) we can’t live with(D)out

I was a non-believer , I didn’t believe in God
I was always sinnin’  as upon this earth I trod
Since I found them sinners  now I am not alone
Salvation is the only way  that you can get home

Chorus

I’d sit way back in the church and I bowed my head
And when they’d start to praying I’d do just as they did
Well I never even closed my eyes I’d listen to their prayers
And since that time I found out that God is everywhere

Chorus

There’s people who look for bargains downtown in the stores
Denying God in all his glory and all that he stands for.
Now I don’t know about deduction,  but there’s on thing that I know
That God can only bargain as you onward go

Chorus

Honey in the Rock // In between the Readings
Frederick A. Graves, 1895; arr. Carter Family

1. Oh, my (D) brother, do you know the (G) Savior,

He’s the rock of your (G) salvation,
there is (A7) honey in the rock for (D) you.

Oh, honey in the (G) rock (oh…. ),
sweet honey in the  (D) rock (sweet …),
oh, it tastes just like honey in the (A7) rock.
Oh, taste and (D) see, if the Lord is (G) good,
oh, it (D) tastes just like (A7)  honey in the (D) rock.

2. Have you tasted that the Lord is gracious?
Do you walk in the way that’s new?
Have you drank from the living fountain?
There is honey in the rock for you.

+ CHORUS

3. Oh, there’s honey in the rock my brother,
there is honey in the rock for you,
leave your sins fur the blood to cover,
there is honey in the rock for you.

When He Reached Down His Hand for Me // In Between the Readings
arr. Jimmy Martin

Once my (D) soul was astray from the (A7) heavenly (D) way

But my Savior in love gave me (G)  peace from (D) above
When he reached down his hand for me

When he reached down his (A7) hand for (D) me (G) (D)
When the (D) Savior reached (G) down for (D) me
When he reached down his (E7) hand for (A)  me
I was (D) lost and undone without (G)  God or his (D) Son
When he (D)  reached down his (A7) hand for (D) me (G) (D)

How my heart does rejoice when I hear his sweet voice
In a tempest to him I can cling
I can lean on his arm safe and sure from all harm

When the Savior reached down for me
When he reached down his hand for me
I was lost and undone without God or his Son
When he reached down his hand for me

Time for me will be no more,
Guide me gently, safely o’er
To Thy kingdom’s shore, to Thy shore.

Calling You // Opening
Hank Williams, Sr.

When you’ve strayed from the fold
And there’s trouble in your soul
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?
When your soul is lost in sin
And you’re at your journey’s end
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?

CHORUS

Calling you, (calling you)
Calling you, (calling you)
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?
He will take you by the hand
Lead you to that promised land
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?

As you journey day by day
And temptation comes your way
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?
If you’ll follow in His light

He will always guide you right
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?

CHORUS

When your soul is burdened down
And your friends can not be found
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?
If you’ll follow Him each day
He will brighten up your way
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?

CHORUS

VOICE CALLING // In Between Readings

I (C) hear a voice callin’

It’s comin’ from heaven on (G7) high
I hear a voice (C) callin’
I’ll (F) gain the (C) reward
In the land where we (G) never shall (C) die

The Savior has paid a (F) great price for (C) me
He gave His life on (G7) Calvary
So I’ll follow his (C) footsteps up the (F) narrow (C) way
And be ready to meet Him when He (G7) calls on that (C) day

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 that debt on the great judgement day


Church in the wildwood

No lovelier place in the dale
No spot is so dear to my childhood
As the little brown church in the dale

CHORUS

Oh, come, come, come, come,

Come to the church in the wildwood
Oh, come to the church in the dale
No spot is so dear to my childhood
As the little brown church in the dale

How sweet on a clear Sabbath morning
To listen to the clear ringing bell
Its tones so sweetly are calling
Oh, come to the church in the dale

CHORUS

There, close by the side of the loved one
‘Neath the tree where the wild flowers bloom
She sleeps, sweet love sleeps, ‘neath the willow
Disturb not her rest in the tomb

Let’s go down, come on down

Will the Circle be Unbroken // Closing

I was  (E) standing by my window
On a (A) cold and cloudy (E) day,
When I saw the hearse come rollin’
For to take my (B7) love (E) away.

Chorus

Will the circle be unbroken?
By and by Lord, by and by,
There’s a better home a-waitin
In the sky Lord, in the sky.

I told the undertaker,
“Undertaker, please drive slow,
For this body you are haulin’ Lord,
I hate to see him go.”

Chorus

Well I followed close behind him,
Tried to hold up and be brave,
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid him in the grave.

(G) What a fellowship, (C) what a joy divine,

leaning on the everlasting arms;
O how bright the path grows from day to day,
leaning on the everlasting arms.

What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
leaning on the everlasting arms?
I have blessed peace with my Lord so near,
leaning on the everlasting arms.

CHORUS

Wildwood in the Pines // between the readings

(D) There’s a wildwood in the pines where the (G) family used to (D) gather.
There’s a little shady grove where they built a country (A) church.
There was (D) singing on the ground.
(G) Baptisin’ in the (D) river.
Glory! Hallelujah, brother! Sweet (A) salvation there was (D) found.

So I believe that the saints go side-by-side in the land that lies up yonder.
I believe that there are streets there paved with gold.
There are people on their feet shoutin’, singin’ hallelujah!
I believe that Jesus loves me. I can feel it in my soul.

There’s a long and windin’ road that I long once more to travel.
There’s a home place in my heart sittin’ high upon a hill.
There’s a rosewood rockin’ chair and a place set at the table.
Guess I better have a little talk with Jesus. Maybe he can take me there.

So I believe that the saints go side-by-side in the land that lies up yonder.
I believe that there are streets there paved with gold.
There are people on their feet shoutin’, singin’ hallelujah!
I believe that Jesus loves me.
I can feel it in my soul.

So I believe that the saints go side-by-side in the land that lies up yonder.
I believe that there are streets there paved with gold.
There are people on their feet shoutin’, singin’ hallelujah!
I believe that Jesus loves me.
I can feel it in my soul

Christ for President
Woody Guthrie
Let’s have Christ our President
Let us have him for our king
Cast your vote for the Carpenter
That you call the Nazarene

The only way we can ever beat
These crooked politician men
Is to run the money changers out of the temple
Put the Carpenter in

O It’s Jesus Christ our President
God above our king
With a job and a pension for young and old
We will make hallelujah ring

Every year we waste enough
To feed the ones who starve
We build our civilization up
And we shoot it down with wars

But with the Carpenter on the seat
Way up in the Capital town
The USA would be on the way
Prosperity Bound!

Pass me not, O gentle Savior (Communion

Refrain
(G) Savior,  (C) Savior,
(G) Hear my humble (D7) cry;
(G) While on others Thou art calling,

Let me at Thy throne of mercy
Find a sweet relief,
Kneeling there in deep contrition;
Help my unbelief.

Refrain

Trusting only in Thy merit,
Would I seek Thy face;
Heal my wounded, broken spirit,
Save me by Thy grace.

Refrain

Thou the Spring of all my comfort,
More than life to me,
Whom have I on earth beside Thee?
Whom in Heav’n but Thee?

(D) For I command it in the (A) name of the Lord Jesus (E) Christ, of Nazareth
(A) Get thee behind me Satan
(D) For I command it in the (A) name of the (E) Lord Jesus (A)

I couldn’t see my hand in front of my face
I knew that I was buried in the deepest darkest place
The deeds that I had done put me in this awful place
Then I felt the stir inside me and the smoke came ‘cross my face

(A) Get thee behind me Satan
(D) For I command it in the (A) name of the Lord Jesus (E) Christ, of Nazareth
(A) Get thee behind me Satan
(D) For I command it in the (A) name of the (E) Lord Jesus (A)

Calling You // Opening
Hank Williams, Sr.

When you’ve strayed from the fold
And there’s trouble in your soul
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?
When your soul is lost in sin
And you’re at your journey’s end
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?

CHORUS

Calling you, (calling you)
Calling you, (calling you)
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?
He will take you by the hand
Lead you to that promised land
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?

As you journey day by day
And temptation comes your way
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?
If you’ll follow in His light

He will always guide you right
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?

CHORUS

When your soul is burdened down
And your friends can not be found
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?
If you’ll follow Him each day
He will brighten up your way
Can’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?

Would you Recognize Jesus? // Offertory
The Statler Brothers

(G) If you’ve never fed the hungry, or given (C) clothes to the (G) poor,
If you’ve never helped a stranger who came (A7) knocking on your (D) door,
If you (G) forgot to send some flowers to a (C) sick and shut-in (G) friend,
well if you ain’t helping none of these, then (D) you ain’t helping (G) Him.

If you’ve ever seen some children, playing ball behind a school,
If you’ve ever watched an old man, plowing ground behind a mule,
If you’ve ever stopped and listened, when you could not hear a sound,
then brother you have met Him, because Jesus gets around.

Would you (G)recognize (C) Jesus if you (G) met Him face to face?
or would you wonder if He’s just another (A7) one you could not (D) place?
You may not (G) find Him (C) coming in a (G) chariot of the Lord,
Jesus could be riding in a (D7) “49 (G) Ford.

You can find Him in your Momma’s eyes, or in your Daddy’s face,
You can find He’s always there to help you win the human race,
You can find Him in the mountains, downtown, or by the sea,
And brother, here’s hoping someone can find him, and you and me.

Would you recognize Jesus if you met Him face to face?
or would you wonder if He’s just another one you could not place?
You may not find Him coming in a chariot of the Lord, Jesus could be riding in a “49 Ford

Would you recognize Jesus if you met Him face to face?
or would you wonder if He’s just another one you could not place?
You may not find Him coming in a chariot of the Lord, Jesus could be riding in a “49 Ford

The Darkest Hour is Just Before the Dawn // Communion

The sun is slowly sinkin’
The day’s almost gone
Still darkness falls around us
And we must journey on

The darkest hour is just before dawn
The narrow way leads home
Lay down your soul at Jesus’ feet
The darkest hour is just before dawn

Like a shepherd out on the mountain
A-watchin’ the sheep down below
He’s coming back to claim us
Will you be ready to go

The darkest hour is just before dawn
The narrow way leads home
Lay down your soul
Let Jesus in
The darkest hour is just before dawn
The darkest hour is just before dawn

Nothing but the Blood // Between the Readings

(F) What can wash away my sin?
(Dm) Nothing but the blood of (C)  Je(F) sus;
(F) What can make me whole again?
(Dm) Nothing but the blood of (C) Je(F)sus.

Refrain:
(F) Oh! precious is the flow
(C) That makes me white as snow;
(F) No other fount I know,
(Dm) Nothing but the blood of (C) Je(F)sus.

For my pardon, this I see,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing this my plea,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Nothing can for sin atone,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

This is all my hope and peace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteousness,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Now by this I’ll overcome—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Now by this I’ll reach my home—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Glory! Glory! This I sing—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
All my praise for this I bring—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
