Lyrics
  • When God made man, He made a spirit
  • It was His plan that we live blessed
  • The tempter came, we were distracted
  • The tempter came and we fell
 
  • We were deemed to live a life that’s beautiful
  • A life that’s full, a life that’s rich and plentiful
  • It is my goal to remind you of this principle
  • We’re redeemed, a newborn soul
 
  • Let’s get back to Eden, live on top of the world
 
  • Well, now it’s time we change our thinking
  • Know our design and our Father’s plan
  • Oh, yes, it’s time we get back to Kingdom
  • Now is the time we take our stand
 
  • Our families blessed, finances blessed
  • Our mind and spirit and our bodies blessed
  • We were tempted and we fell
  • Jesus came, now all is well
 
  • Live – it’s not the time for you to give up now
  • Live – God’s gonna work it out, you’re gettin’ ready to smile
  • Live – The blessing is on you to live
  • Live – Jesus give His life so that you could live
  • Live – You’ve been down too long, get up!
  • Live – ‘Cuz in the morning the morning, joy is coming
  • Live – I’m headin’ back to Eden
  • Live – Confess it with your mouth I’ve got to

Lyrics
  • Don’t learn my name – ‘cause I’m gonna get a new name
  • When I finally cross the river and I’m on the other side
  • Don’t learn my name – ‘cause I’m gonna get a new name
  • And the worldly-wise won’t recognize me on the other side
 
  • I’m crossing over – I’m crossing over
  • Leaving all my earthly worries – no more fear – kiss my pride goodbye
  • ‘Cause I’m over – I’m crossing over
  • And the worldly-wise won’t recognize me on the other side
 
  • And the Lord said to Abram, “no longer will you be called Abram, no no”
  • And the Lord said to Sarai, “no longer will you be called Sarai, no no.”
  • And the Lord said to Jacob, “from now on, I’d be surprised if anybody remembers your name was Jacob” – Hear, O Israel!
  • And the Lord said to Daniel, “no longer will you be called Daniel” (look it up, it’s complicated)
  • And the Lord said to Saul, “no longer will you be called Saul, never again.”
  • And the Lord tells us all, “I’m gonna make all things new – brand new.”

  • Lyrics
  • When I can read my title clear to mansions in the skies
  • I’ll bid farewell to every fear and wipe my weeping eyes
  • And wipe my weeping eyes – and wipe my weeping eyes
  • I’ll bid farewell to every fear and wipe my weeping eyes
 
  • Should earth against my soul engage, and fiery darts be hurled
  • Then I can smile at Satan’s rage and face a frowning world
  • And face a frowning world – and face a frowning world
  • Then I can smile at Satan’s rage and face a frowning world
 
  • Let cares like a wild deluge come and storms of sorrow fall
  • May I but safely reach my home, my God, my heaven, my all
  • My God, my heaven, my all – My God, my heaven, my all
  • May I but safely reach my home, my God, my heaven, my all

Lyrics
  • Off fast with the gun with energy to run
  • Barely noticing the toils or the snares
  • But thinking the world is flat don’t make it a matter of fact
  • And sometimes you’re gonna have to take the stairs
 
  • It’s when your climb is over, there’s a better place
  • I’ll meet you at the end of the line
  • Tell the doubters and your demons that you won your race
  • I’ll tell My Father and His angels that you’re mine
 
  • If there’s leaves on the limb – all glory goes to Him
  • What are branches, unattached, but kindling?
  • You can stretch out on your own, but when you’re good and grown
  • You’ll find your reach is short and dwindling
 
  • The harvesters from heaven get to sort each shoot
  • Be sure to share the roots from the vine
  • Tell the enemy who sowed the weeds you bore much fruit
  • I’ll tell My Father and His angels that you’re mine
 
  • If there’s wind in your sail the doldrums can’t prevail
  • Not the devil nor the deep blue sea
  • With your anchor holding fast, you can sit atop the mast
  • With a view into eternity
 
  • There’s a pirate who would kill and steal and test man’s will
  • That’s why a ship making its port becomes the sign
  • Tell the reaper and a sea of thieves you’re willing still
  • I’ll tell My Father and His angels that you’re mine

Lyrics
  • Glory glory, hallelujah!  Since I laid my burdens down
  • I feel better, so much better since I laid my burdens down
  • Friends don’t treat me like they used to since I laid my burdens down
  • Goin’ home to be with Jesus since I laid my burdens down

Lyrics
  • Down at the marina all the boats are out
  • Not sure what that’s about unless “the big ones” are bitin’
  • I’m pretty much the new guy – just made it through the gate
  • So point me toward the bait shop – let me know what’s been workin’
  • Down there the wind was shiftin’ – they said they found me driftin’
  • The storm had moved in swiftly like the angel liftin’ me
  • And now that I’m in heaven, I’m ‘bout to do some fishin’
  • on the Glassy Sea
 
  • Maybe on a whim I’ll take a little swim
  • And see if I can make a little wake in the water
  • Or I could mind the boat while You get out and walk
  • Just once it would be fun to see that done if You’d bother
  • I read about the day Peter-Simon stepped away
  • from the bow to see how it worked on Galilee
  • Now I’m here in heaven thinkin’ ain’t no one up here sinkin’
  • on the Glassy Sea
 
  • Down there, that cove – it was a treasure-trove of priceless memories
  • Bobbers in the water – deposits into my two treasuries
  • I hope I left my kids enough of the good stuff
  • Now tell me…
 
  • When you throw out your nets, what time of day is best?
  • I’ve had some luck at dusk any mornin’ when it’s foggy
  • And after I’ve been here eleven thousand years
  • Will I slide on up to Guide and teach the newbies a new hobby?
  • Forgive me my presumptions – my ramblin’ Bubba Gump-tions
  • But I’m hoping we still share the same affinity
  • If heaven grants me that wish, it’s you and me and catfish
  • on the Glassy Sea
  • Don’t you cry too long for me
  • ‘Cause I’m on the Glassy Sea
