I Saw the Light (Opening)
Music and Lyrics by Hank Williams

(E) I wandered so aimless, life filled with sin
(A) I wouldn’t let my dear Saviour in. (E)
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
(E) Praise the Lord, (B) I saw the (E) Light.

CHORUS
(E) I saw the Light, I saw the Light,
(A) No more darkness, no more night. (E)
(E) Now I’m so happy, no sorrow in sight,
(E) Praise the Lord, (B) I saw the (E) Light.

Just like the blind man, I wandered along,
Worries and fears, I claimed for my own.
Then like the blind man, that God, gave back his sight,
Praise the Lord, I saw the Light.

CHORUS

I was a fool to wander and stray,
For straight is the gate and narrow the way.
Now I have traded, the wrong for the right,
Praise the Lord, I saw the Light.

Roll Away the Stone (Offertory)
traditional

(D)There’s a burden in my soul I cannot (G) bear
Though I (D) know I’m the one who put it (A7) there
With every (D) wrong turn in my life it has (G) grown
Now I (D) ask you Lord to (A7) roll away the (D) stone

Chorus:
(D) Won’t You roll away the stone
And let the (G) light shine in on (D) me
Roll away the stone and let it (A7) be
(D) Roll away the stone
It’s so (G) dark I cannot (D) see
Roll away the (A7) stone and set me (D) free

I have heard of how they locked You in the ground
When from the cross, Joseph laid Your body down
Now just like You I cannot see the light of day
I need Your mighty strength to roll the stone away

Chorus

Lord let Your light shine in on me, it’ so dark I cannot see
Won’t You roll away the stone and set me free
Won’t You roll away the stone and set me free

Live Forever (Communion)
Billy Joe Shaver
I’m gonna live forever
I’m gonna cross that river
I’m gonna catch tomorrow now
You’re gonna wanna hold me
Just like I always told you
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

Nobody here will ever find me
But I always be around
Just like the songs I leave behind me
I’m gonna live forever now

You fathers and you mothers
Be good to one another
Please try to raise your children right
Don’t let the darkness take ’em
Don’t make ’em feel forsaken
Just lead them safely to the light

When this old world has blown us under
And all the stars from fall this sky
Remember someone really loves you
We’ll live forever you and I

I’m gonna live forever
I’m gonna cross that river
I’m gonna catch tomorrow now
I’m gonna live forever
I’m gonna cross that river
I’m gonna catch tomorrow now


When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder (Closing Hymn)
James M. BlackWhen the (G) trumpet of the Lord shall sound, and (C) time shall be no more, (G)
And the morning breaks, eternal, bright and fair; (D)
When the (G) saved of earth shall gather (C) over on the other shore, (G)
And the roll is called up (D7) yonder, I’ll be there. (G)

CHORUS
(G) When the roll is called up yonder,
When the (D7) roll is called up yonder,
When the (G) roll is called up (C) yonder,
When the (G) roll is called up (D7) yonder, I’ll be there. (G)

On that bright and cloudless morning when the dead in Christ shall rise,
And the glory of His resurrection share;
When His chosen ones shall gather to their home beyond the skies,
And the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there.

CHORUS

Let us labor for the Master from the dawn till setting sun,
Let us talk of all His wondrous love and care;
Then when all of life is over, and our work on earth is done,
And the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there.

CHORUS

Hope to see you on Sunday, dressed down and ready to sing out!
