Lyrics

Tonight
Words & Music by Becky Powers

Is this just another Saturday night
A chance to get away from the trouble of the day
But do you need to take a toke
or get drunk to help you cope
and get you in the mood tonight

Are you gonna party down tonight?
But you need something exciting, new and inviting
Might take you someplace you ain't never been
no guarantees to come back again
Do you know where you're headed tonight
Can it satisfy your soul tonight

Well it seems so strange, when it starts out so small
then you wake up to find it's runnin' your life
What was once just for kicks is now beating you to the ground
You won't be able to break away without a fight

It's time to put up a fight
C'mon break away tonight
Fight fight baby fight
Tonight

Don't play the masquerade tonight
Time to stop and change confront the doubts deal with the pain
it's never easy to stand against the tide
Oh don't let your heart run and hide
It's time to heal the hurts tonight

C'mon and face the pain tonight
Oh don't run and hide tonight
Heal the hurts tonight
Tonight's the night
C'mon now do it tonight
Jesus can heal your hurts tonight

Making Choices
Music by Jim Powers

Life at times seems so unfair
but all we can do is learn and share
The ladder of life is hard to climb
but growing up should be, the first step in mind

We can only learn from the mistakes we make
and just hope the next time, it's the right road we take

Chorus
Making choices, it's what we all go through
Living by choices, is sometimes hard to do
Making choices, is sometimes hard to do.

Taking chances is scary at first
especially when it's you who gets hurt
When you do your best and still feel the pain
but it can make us stronger, just the same

We can only learn from the mistakes we make
and just hope the next time, it's the right road we take.

Lift Me Up
Words by Jim Powers, Becky Powers, Brian Pounders

Living my life in vain, looking for worldy treasures
Taking in all the pain, thinkig it was all a big pleasure

Seeking to satisfy my heart every desire
I was still empty inside building up earthly fires

Lift Me Up
Higher and higher
Lift Me Up
Do You hear my cry
Lift Me Up
Higher and higher
Lift Me Up
Until I reach the sky

I set my heart to find, and search out the meaning of life
Whatever I saw I made it mine, but what did I get for all my strife

Vanity, all is vanity, so waht is my true call
It's to fear God and keep his commands, that's the conclusion of it all

Pray For Me
Words by Beth Pounders
Music by Jim Powers

Out of my way she cried
As she shoved me aside
Pain and sorrow were heavy on her face

Anger shot from her eyes
A trail of tears long dried
But she can never speak the burden of her heart

She was crying
Pray for me, oh my heart is crying
Pray for me, inside I'm slowly dying
Trapped by my pride, and I can never let it show

Standing in the crowd
she could never say out loud
But I can tell, she had so much to say

Instead she whirled about
And left with an angry shout
And as she turned to run, the tears began to flow

She was crying
Pray for me, oh my heart is crying
Pray for me, inside I'm slowly dying
Please see my need and show me how to be free

She has no fortress which to run
She never knew the comfort of the Son
And she was all tied up inside
And all the tears she cried
The pain was too much to bear
Won't somebody, somebody please care

You may know someone too

Knowing her great need
I dropped down to my knees
Right then and there I began to pray

And you may know someone too
who's shouting out at you
It could be they're just afraid to let someone into their heart

They could be crying,
Pray for me, oh my heart is crying
Pray for me, inside I'm slowly dying
Trapped by my pride, and I can never let it show

She was crying
Pray for me, oh my heart is crying
Pray for me, inside I'm slowly dying
Please see my need and show me how to be free

Pray for me, pray for me, pray for me.

My Love For You

People they come and go,
but You have always been
You loved me from the start of time
and Your love for me will never end
You are the Lord my God
and I'll serve You now and far beyond
And my love for You will never end

My love for You,
my love for You,
my love for You
will never end

I know I love you
because You first loved me
There is no greater love
than when You sent Your Son to die for me
And nothing can separate
me from Your love
An my love for You will never end

Chorus

Fly Away
Words & Music by Jim and Becky Powers
Copyright (C) 1986

I hear them talking, but my mind is far away
Heaven is calling and today might be the day

A dream, a hope, a promise, that Jesus has given me
To be with Him forever will someday be reality

(Chorus)
I'll take a walk with Him across the sky
I know someday I'll fly away
To be with Him forever in paradise
I know someday I'll fly away

(Musical interlude)
(Repeat Chorus)

In just a moment, in the twinkling of an eye
The final trump will blow and it will be time to fly

(Repeat Chorus)

Lead Me in the Way (Ps. 139)
Words & Music by Jim Powers
Copyright (C) 1988

If I take the wings of the morning
If I dwell in the depths of the sea
You are always there ever guiding
Your right hand is leading me

Bridge:
No matter what I do
You're always there to see me through
No matter where I go
I know that I'll never be alone

Chorus:
Lead me in the way
to follow You and never go astray
Lead me in the way
Lead me in the way [everlasting]

Where could I run from Your Spirit
Or where could I possibly flee
cause even in the night you light the darkness
O Lord you are always with me

Bridge
Chorus

Keep Movin' On
Words by Jim and Becky Powers
Music by Jim Powers

Blessed are those who hunger
and thirst after righteousnes
(for they shall be filled)
You have finally found the truth
now you want to grow
(in all your ways)

With each step you take (keep movin' on)
He's teaching you to be more like Him

Keep movin' on

The path that have chosen
sometimes can be so hard
When you're close to stumbling
He's there to catch your fall.

Rain
Words by Dawn Hunter and Becky Powers
Music by Jim Powers and Susan Bradon
Copyright (C) 1988

Sprinkles of memories
drip down my windowsill
Cloudy thoughts of
someone special far away
bring back a windy chill

Chorus:
Rain, Rain won't you go away
Come again some other day
The clouds roll in, the sky turns gray
Rain, rain won't you go away

Sad tears from heaven
are falling to the ground
The melodies of a broken heart
just a quiet lonely sound.

Please Please Please Me
Music & Words by Jim Powers
Copyright (C) 1987

Please please please me
That's all I hear you say
Please please please me
It's the American Way
Please please please me
You say you want my love
Please please please me
Then give it all away

You say you want just you and me
don't care what others think or see
You're my ambassadors to earth
you've got to live so they all see me

I told them to come follow me
Count the cost to set them free
To walk among you in purity
And now you are their legacy

Chorus

I walked among you as a man
My glory in my Father's hand
Endured temptation just like you
I'm your example, your guiding truth

The road I walked, the cross I bore
The path to life forevermore
Deny yourself, pick up your cross, and see
Its only then that you'll be like me

Chorus

People are dying
I hear them crying
I asked you if you want to go
You said yes, your heart says no
