Lyrics
  • Like a ship that’s tossed and driven, battered by an angry sea
  • When the storms of life are ragin’, and the fury falls on me
  • One day, just what I’ve done to make this race so hard to run
  • Then I say to my soul “Don’t worry, oh, the Lord will make a way somehow”
 
  • Try to do the best in service – I try to do the best I can
  • With the saints, I try to do the right thing, y’all – even pressed on every end
  • Many nights, I roll and toss in so much pain – just wonderin’ what the next day will bring
  • Then I say to my soul “Soul, don’t worry – oh, the Lord will make a way somehow”
 
  • The Lord will make a way somehow – lay me ‘neath the cross above
  • He will take away each sorrow, just let Him have your burdens now
  • When the load bears down so heavy, y’all, the weight is shown upon my brow
  • There’s a sweet relief, yes it is, in knowin’: I know that the Lord will make a way somehow
 
  • The Lord will make a way – I know He will – I believe He will
  • He said He would – He’ll make a way – outta no way
  • The Lord will make a way… oh yes…
  • Make a way… Make a way, outta no way
  • The Lord will make a way somehow!

Lyrics
  • What’s good? What’s good?
  • You can ask a Holy Roller – you can look to Hollywood
  • But what’s good? What’s good?
  • When the answer is bi-polar, it’s easily misunderstood
 
  • What’s acceptable, respectable changes with the times
  • What was horrible, deplorable is no longer a crime
 
  • So, what’s good? What’s good?
  • You can follow your own heart – but we’re way past childhood
  • What’s good? What’s good?
  • We could tear the thing apart – but is it science or is it an art?
 
  • We are mannerless or standardless – too rigid or too loose
  • Our own happiness is sappiness – too easily abused
  • Sound of speech and self-controlled, pure of heart and mind
  • Love can teach the young and old to have courage and be kind
  • Can we yet say what’s right or wrong? By now it seems we should know
 
  • People, get ready for what’s good
  • People, get ready for what’s good (it’s easily misunderstood)

Lyrics
  • It’s hard to tell just when the night becomes the day
  • That golden moment when the darkness rolls away
  • But there is a moment nonetheless
  • In the regions of the heart, there is a place
  • A sacred chart that should not be erased
  • It is the marrow; the moral core that I cannot ignore
 
  • Within the scheme of things, well, I know where I stand
  • My convictions – they define who I am
  • Some move the boundaries at any cost
  • But there is a line I will not cross
  • No riding on the fence – no alibis
  • No building on the sands of compromise
  • I won’t be borrowed and I can’t be bought
  • No, there is a line I will not cross
 
  • Ask the ocean where the water meets the land
  • He will tell you it depends on where you stand
  • And you’re neither right nor wrong
  • But in the fathoms of the soul that won’t ring true
  • ‘Cause truth is more than imposing point of view
  • It rises above the changing tide, as sure as the morning sky

Lyrics
  • I went down to the water
  • And Jesus met me there
  • I was drawn to the water
  • And Jesus met me there
 
  • They’ve been tellin’ me the river is deep
  • They’ve been tellin’ me this river is wide
  • Lord, I’m as grimy as a chimney sweep
  • So make me tidy when I’m climbing up the ladder dockside

Lyrics
  • I place my life in the hands of the Father – In the hands of the Father; I place my life
  • God, make something beautiful.
 
  • I bring my gifts and my offerings to Jesus – In the presence of Jesus, I bring my gifts
  • God, make something beautiful. God, make something beautiful
 
  • All that I have is Yours – all that I am is Yours
  • All that I do, I do for You – Make something beautiful
 
  • Now, I sing my song and I wait for the Spirit – By the power of the Spirit, I sing my song
 
  • Beautiful… Beautiful… Beautiful…
  • All the way, my Savior leads me
  • Tell me, what have I to lack beside?
  • How can I doubt His tender mercy?
  • Who through all my life has been my guide
  • Heavenly peace, divinest comfort
  • Here by faith with Him to dwell
  • For I know that I know that I know what e’er befall me
  • Jesus doeth all things well

Lyrics
  • Water! Water everywhere, but not a drop to drink
  • The shoals are shouting, “Best beware! Our quest is ships to sink.”
  • Steer clear the sands of Syrtis – they’ll strand you and your mates
  • You’ve left behind the clear seas to tempt the hand of fate
 
  • Scattered on the seabed – the wreckage dashed by storm
  • Embattled on the beachhead – asleep in uniform
  • When Caesar cannot save you – when wits and wiles fail
  • You’ll wish you’d heeded warnings, or never learned to sail
 
  • Ambition came to blind you – it swam straight up the sound
  • So keep the wind behind you, and prepare to run aground
 
  • Your craft is stalled in irons – a pointless point of sail
  • You’re past the grasp of lions – but swallowed by a whale
  • You’re three days up the channel with no way to turn about
  • A cage of your own making – may sorrow break it out
 
  • You claim the currents forced you – you say you’re duty-bound
  • So keep the prize before you, and prepare to run aground
