Cowboy Roy's Gospel

morning, night or noon

morning, night or noon you gotta be ready for it will be soon

Jesus could come back in the blink of an eye

to take us home with him to his home in the sky

no man knows the day or hour Jesus will come back

it will happen someday that is a well known fact

the signs are all around us appearing everywhere

he could come any moment so be prepared

he could come any time and any day

the trumpet will sound and we'll be called away

Jesus will leave heaven with a shout

it's sure to come without a doubt

it will come someday morning, night or noon

you better be ready for it will be soon

the light of my life

 

when darkness closes in on me he's the light of my life
he's always right beside me in times of tears and strife
i don't have to worry when my world comes crashing down
cuz he's the light of my life a greater friend cannot be found
this world is full of bad times it gets harder day by day
most people cannot make it they somehow lose their way
 i used to be just like them i can't say that anymore
since Jesus came into my heart he gives me all i need and more
so if it's been to much to take it's been really hard on you
and you don't know just where to go or exactly what to do
just turn your eyes toward heaven and say with all your heart
Jesus i can't make it by myself please give me a new start

God is God

 

God is God and that's enough for me
people say he doesn't exist then how can he live in me
he gives the breath i breathe and holds on to my hand
he picks me up when i fall and gives me strength to stand
he made the universe in the time of 6 days
when i'm lost he helps to show me the way
when i'm broken inside he makes me whole
and he's the only one to bring joy to my soul
when the load i bear is heavy he makes it light
when i am too weak he helps me win the fight
so let people talk as if God isn't real
that won't change the way that i feel
God has changed my life and set me free
and God is God always has and always will be

saved, redeemed and ready to go

saved, redeemed & ready to go just a waitin to hear the trumpet blow

it could happen just any ole day then all the saints will fly away

i asked the Lord into my heart and he gave me a brand new start

i traded the filthy rags of sin for joy and sweet peace within

Jesus swept his precious blood over me

 from the shackles and chains i am free

yes my reservation for heaven has been made

and i just can't wait for that day

saved, redeemed and ready to go just a waitin on the trumpet to blow

when i hear that wonderful sound my feet are a gonna leave the ground

i'll sail past the stars and the moon i believe that day is a coming soon

the course of life

in the course of my life i've been a lot of places

put a lot of miles underneath my feet

but one of these days when my life is over

i'm gonna walk on golden streets

i'll never know sorrow again, the rough roads will all be gone

forevermore i will thank my God and savior at the foot of his throne

peace and joy will flood my soul, cares and heartaches will vanish away

tears will never again fill my eyes in that land of the endless day

scarred hands that made my mansion i will finally get to see

and i'll praise Jesus for the price he paid for me

what glory and splendor awaits me some day this i know

when my feet will trod those beautiful streets of gold

let it go

let it go, all the hurt and all the pain

you've struggled so long, it's time for you to smile again

cast aside all fear, let faith lead instead of doubt

for i am right here beside you to help you out

i am the Lord thy God, nothing's impossible for me

i am the only one who can set you free

humble yourself before me right where you are

only i can give you a fresh new start

all the walls that have been built have got to fall

and i have the power to do it all

but my hands are tied with self in the way

so why not turn it over to me today

a grandmother's wish

 

THIS IS THE STORY OF A GRANDMOTHER

AND THE WISH SHE HAD FOR HER LOVED ONES

THAT EACH AND EVERY ONE WOULD COME TO KNOW

OUR SAVIOR AND GOD'S SON

THEY HAD ALL WANDERED AWAY FROM GOD

AND FELL DEEP INTO THE GULF OF SIN

THE HOPE SHE HAD BEFORE SHE LEFT THIS WORLD

WAS WHEN HEAVEN'S GATE OPENED THEY COULD COME IN

SO DAY BY DAY AND NIGHT AFTER NIGHT

SHE WOULD FALL DOWN OPEN HER KNEES

THAT THEY WOULD LET HIM INTO THEIR HEARTS

AND FROM THEIR CHAINS THEY COULD BE SET FREE

SHE TRIED TO PLANT THE SEED TO LET THEM KNOW

THEY ALL HAD A CHANCE FOR PEACE IN LIFE

HER WISH WAS THAT THE LORD'S SPIRIT WOULD CONVICT THEIR HEARTS

AND FREE THEM FROM TURMOIL AND STRIFE

SHE KNEW HOW BAD IT WAS FOR HER SO LONG AGO

BEFORE SHE GAVE HER LIFE TO THE SWEET LORD

NOW SHE KNOWS HOW THEY ARE SEARCHING

AND HAVEN'T FOUND WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR

JUST WHEN SHE HAD ALMOST GIVEN UP HOPE

OF THEM EVER COMING TO KNOW WHAT SHE KNEW

ONE DAY ONE OF HER CHILDREN ASKED

IF THEY COULD COME AND GO TO CHURCH WITH HER TOO

HER HEART WAS SO FILLED WITH SURPRISE

AND IT FILLED HER SOUL WITH SUCH JOY

FOR THIS ONE THAT ASKED HER THIS QUESTION

WAS HER YOUNGEST DARLING BOY

WITH NO HESITATION IN HER VOICE AT ALL

AND AS SHE WIPED AWAY MANY TEARS

SHE TOOK HIM IN HER ARMS AND SAID YES OF COURSE

FOR SHE HAD WAITED MANY YEARS

AS THEY WERE DRIVING TO THE CHURCH IN THE CAR

MANY THOUGHTS WERE RACING THROUGH HER MIND

WOULD THIS FINALLY BE THE DAY TO COME

THAT JESUS HER SON'S SOUL WOULD FINALLY FIND

AS THEY GOT TO THE CHURCH AND WALKED THROUGH THE DOOR

HER SON WAS GREETED BY SMILES AND LOVE

WOULD HE TURN HIS HEART AND VERY SOUL

TO THE LOVING FATHER IN HEAVEN ABOVE

AS THEY TOOK THEIR SEATS IN THE PEW

THE CHOIR STARTS TO SING HEAVEN'S SONGS

THEN THE PASTOR WILL START HIS MESSAGE

TO BRING THE LOST TO WHERE THEY BELONG

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN THE MIDDLE OF THE SERVICE

HER SON FELT A LITTLE TUG AT HIS HEART

SAYING PLEASE COME AND SERVE ME NOW

LET ME GIVE YOU A NEW START

A TEAR STARTED TO TRICKLE DOWN HIS FACE

AND HE ROSE TO HIS FEET AND WALKED DOWN THE AISLE

AS HE KNELT DOWN AT THE CHURCH ALTAR

ON HIS SAVIOR'S FACE I KNEW THERE WAS A SMILE

HE INVITED JESUS TO COME INTO HIS SOUL

YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN THE JOY ON HER FACE

INSTEAD OF THE AWFUL DESTINATION NOW

SHE KNEW HER SON WOULD GO TO A BETTER PLACE

THE FOLLOWING DAY THE SON CALLED ALL THE OTHERS

AND TOLD THEM ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM LAST NIGHT

ABOUT HOW HE WAS DOWN DEEP IN THE DARKNESS

BUT NOW HE HAD COME INTO THE LIGHT

NOW ALL THE FAMILY KNOW ABOUT JESUS

AND HER SON HAS NOW PLANTED THE SEED

SO THEY WOULD ALL KNOW ABOUT THE FATHER

AND THAT HE CAN SUPPLY THEIR EVERY NEED

HER FONDEST WISH WAS NOW COMING TO BE

FOR ONE BY ONE THEY ALL CAME TO JESUS' SIDE

AND ONE DAY THEY'LL ALL BE TOGETHER THERE

IN HEAVEN THEY WILL FOREVERMORE ABIDE

NOW SHE CAN GO TO HER FINAL RESTING PLACE

WITH THE PEACE OF KNOWING HER WISH CAME TRUE

A GRANDMOTHER'S WISH WAS REALLY GRANTED

FOR SHE HAD DONE WHAT JESUS ASKED HER TO

this is the night

this is the night to remember that a very special birth took place

in a manger filled with animals long ago and a world away

this is the night to rejoice this very precious little boy

 took on the fleshly form of man to bring a lost and lonely world joy

this is the night to sing his praises to think about just why he came

 the sweet lamb of God was born so our lives would never be the same

this is the night we should celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ here on earth

the gift he brought to us was salvation there is no measure to what it is worth

this is the night we should gather and remember he shivered in the cold
he had such a humble beginning here but he brought with him riches untold
this is the night to look above us high above at the bright and shining star
remember for wh...o it was created long ago in Bethlehem so very far
this is the night to give our thanks and share good news of the gospel sounds
spread peace and goodwill to our neighbors not just this night but all year round

the song of the angels

the song of the angels filled the night sky on this night so very long ago

they were singing about our dear sweet Lord who had left his heavenly home

their voices were heard everywhere around how beautiful it must have been

their song went from heart to heart for on this night was born our king

how joyful their song must have been as it filled up Bethlehem's night air

for they knew that this was the son of God in that lonely manger lying there

for they watched him leave heaven to don the fleshly robe of man

so they lifted their voices to him as only the holy angels can

as they appeared above the shepherd's flock they were singing be of good cheer
for this night has brought you a savior and your salvation is very near
so they all gathered around the place where lay the worlds greatest friend
then they listened with all their souls as the song of the angels began once again
they said hear us all people on earth this night someone special has come your way
for in a tiny little place in Bethlehem a star shines above where the savior lays
rejoice for your only hope for life has come bring to him gifts from your souls
for only he is worthy of it all and he is the one to make you whole

oh how i long to be there

oh how i long to be there in that land where i'll have no cares

bask in the glory of my savior to look at his precious face so fair

oh how i long to be there and hold all my loved ones hands

my heart cries out to be there above all sorrow in the glory land

this world that i live in now holds no place in my heart

for though the son shines in me i travel in a world so dark

i get so weary of all the hard times the load just drags me down

that's when i think about my home where no tears can be found 

oh how i long to be there up in sweet heaven i'll abide
i'll stand hand in hand with Jesus the very son of God who was crucified
oh how i long to be there and see my dear friends who are gone
with all tears and sorrow behind us we'll all gather around Jesus' throne
the world that i'll live in then such joy will fill my heart
the son will forevermore shine no longer will i walk in the dark
weary times will all be gone no longer will they drag me down
for all eternity i'll be home where no tears will ever be found

thank you God

thank you God for loving me

thank you God for setting me free

thank you God for the peace you give

and the abundant life that i live

thank you God for your mercy & grace

thank you God for the smile on my face

thank you God for the joy in my heart

thank you God for my brand new start

thank you God for the clothes that i wear

and for my friends beyond compare

thank you God for the shoes on my feet

thank you God i have plenty to eat

thank you God for my mansion above

thank you God for your wonderful love

thank you God for sending Jesus my way

he died on the cross but didn't stay

thank you God for that borrowed tomb

since Jesus arose it's just an empty room

thank you God that he's gonna come again

to take me where i will live with him

his hand

his hand opened blind eyes and raised up the dead

his hand calmed stormy waters and the multitudes were fed

his hand healed so many and made the demons flee

and he can do the same for you and me

his hand has the power to free the captive soul

his hand can restore your broken spirit and make you whole

from the well of sin to the fountain of life

i left behind that old well of sin & found the fountain of eternal life

now i have joy and peace with no more heartaches & strife

dark days are all gone and there's a smile on my face

and it's all because of my Lord's amazing grace

the chains that once bound me are no longer there

and i haven't got a worry or a care

the hand of death no longer has a hold on me

for praise the Lord Jesus has set me free

one day

one day it won't be a dream that day is drawing near

we'll all stand on streets of gold and see our savior so dear

all the sights we've read about we'll see with our own eyes

the beauty of heaven above in those crystal skies

we'll be reunited with all our loved ones who've gone on before

and praising Jesus our wonderful master forever and ever more

we'll hear the half that has yet to be told
and we will never more age or grow old
no more dying in that wonderful place
and no more tears to run down our face
we'll see the mansion that Jesus has prepared
what joy and peace we will all share
sin and sorrow will be left far behind
and no more heartaches or sickness will we find
i don't know about you but i can't wait for the day
when the Lord himself will call me away
when i can finally see my savior face to face
and thank him for his wonderful amazing grace
