1. He Never Turned His Back on Me

Written by Reba Rambo and Dony McGuire

He never turned His back on me 
When I was at the wrong place
At the wrong time
Beaten and robbed left to die
He never turned his back on me
When you lifted your white robes
And walked on by
Talking of shame judging my life
 
He never stopped to question
He made His way through all that hurt
To reach my need
He cared for me
 
He never turned His back on me
He never turned His back on me
He never turned His back on
Never turned His back on me
 
He never turned His back on me
When I was blind with hatred
Afraid to trust
He took a chance He offered love
He never turned His back on me
When I turned my back on Him
And walked away
He ran for me I couldn't escape

2. I Won’t Last a Day

Written by Reba Rambo and Dony McGuire

I won’t last a day without Your love 
I refuse to live without Your touch
I won’t last a day without Your love in me
 
I can’t forget
Yesterday’s tears, loneliness haunting me
I can’t forget
The ache in my heart nobody wanting me
 
Just a worthless copper penny
But Your love built a fire within me
Polished me up like a diamond
You’ve made me shine
Now with that fire inside
I could never return to the time
I was without You, cold and empty

3. I Cry out to You

Written by Reba Rambo and Dony McGuire

Where’s everyone gone?
Lord, I’m feelin’ forsaken
I reached for love
Somebody to hold on
Somehow in my climbing
Climbing ended up down
I know I’m hurting, I need help
From my desperation
 
I cry out to You
Catch me I’m falling
I cry out to You
Out to You
 
Lower than low
In the pit of despair
Grasping for life
Just anything to cling to
Frustrated by trying
Trying to make it alone
I know I’m hurting, I need help
From my desperation
 
Lord if You mark iniquities
Who, who then will stand?
But in You there’s forgiveness
Plenteous redemption for man
Whosoever shall call on Your name shall be saved
So now from the depths of my desperation
 
I cry out to You
Catch me I’m falling
Ya hear me, Ya hear me, Ya hear me
Lord when I cry out to You…

4. Struggle for Survival

Written by Reba Rambo and Dony McGuire

In my struggle for survival 
Continually need revival
A spiritual warfare’s on
To destroy my life, I will fight
In my struggle for survival
Strive to be a true disciple
I put on the armor of God
No weapon formed against me will stand
 
In this world we’ll have tribulation
Be of good cheer—He’s overcome the world
 
In this struggle for survival
The Lord fights a scheming rival
Trying to steal my soul
With his thieving hands, not a chance
In my struggle for survival
I know who will win the battle
There may be a prince of this world
But my God’s King of the universe
 
In this world we’ll have tribulation
Be of good cheer—He’s overcome the world
Bless our God—we’ll stand victorious
Triumphantly—with His strength—we’ll conquer every foe

5. Don’t Give Up

Written by Reba Rambo and Dony McGuire

Don’t give up when your heart is bruised and broken 
Disappointed by your friends, you’re feelin’ all alone
Don’t give up through the bitter tears keep tryin’
He’ll pick you up, bind your wounds, mend your heart
 
‘Cause we have a promise a promise to cling to
He won’t let us go through more than we can bear
Don’t give up
If you don’t understand His way of teaching
He’s working everything, together for good
Don’t give up
Even when the world says you are defeated
Just thank our God who causes us to triumph in the Lord
Don’t give up
 
Don’t give up though the howling storm is raging
He makes the clouds His chariots, He rides upon the wind
Don’t give up though you fear you’ll drown in sorrow
With eyes of faith, look up to Him and be saved
 
‘Cause we have a promise a promise to cling to
He won’t let us go through more than we can bear

6. At Last I Found Love

Written by Reba Rambo and Dony McGuire

An orphan child 
Just a homeless, helpless creature in the dark, freezing rain
Whoa, You sought me out
Kissed the hurt away, adopted me and gave me Your name
You made me feel at last I belong
In Your arms, I found a permanent home
Ain’t gonna run away, ain’t gonna hide no more
’Cause I found what I’ve been searchin’ for
 
Love! Whoa love! Whoa love!
At last I found love
At last I found love
 
You wrapped Yourself like a patchwork quilt
Around the loneliness in my heart
You warmed me up with the steaming cup
Of the sweetest love my soul’s ever known
You made me feel at last I belong
In Your arms, I found a permanent home
Ain’t gonna run away, ain’t gonna hide no more
Cause I found what I’ve been searchin’ for
 
Ain’t gonna run away, ain’t gonna hide no more
Cause I found what I’ve been searchin’ for
 
Love! Sweet love
Whoa love! Sweet love of Jesus
Whoa love! At last I found love
Love! Sweet love, sweet love
Love! Sweet love of Jesus
Love! Sweet love, sweet love
At last I found love
At last I found love

7. With a Friend Like You

Written by Reba Rambo and Dony McGuire

With a friend like You 
Each mornin’ starts with conversations I love
Just talk and laugh over the coffee cup
Lord, with a friend like You
With a friend like You
I cherish every moment, they’re too precious to lose
That’s a relationship I can relate to
Lord with a friend like You
 
I’ve got the feelin’
You’ve known me since I was a child
But when my heart reached to touch You
I think all of heaven smiled
The day I met up with a friend like You
I found the secret of happy life
I found someone that I can love and like
Lord with a friend like You
 
With a friend like You
My soul can always hear the music of life
You sing the lead, easy to harmonize
Lord, with a friend like You
With a friend like You
I’ve learned to feel the rhythm thru the rain and the snow
You hum the tune that says I’m never alone
Lord, with a friend like You
 
The day I met up with a friend like You
I found the secret of happy life
I found someone that I can love and like
Lord with a friend like You
 
I found someone I can love and like
Lord, with a friend like You
I found someone I can love and like
Lord, with a friend like You…

8. Because of Whose I Am

Written by Reba Rambo and Dony McGuire

I'll never understand why He saw a piece of clay 
And said “I want it, I’ll use it”
The greatest mystery is that somehow in spite of me
He said “I’m gonna love you”
He took me in His arms, said “this child belongs to Me”
He placed me in His kingdom, now I live like royalty
It’s not because of what I am
Not because of what I’ve done
It’s because of Whose I am
 
I'll never understand while I was yet a slave
He said He'd buy me, He'd save me
He clothed Himself in flesh, became the final sacrifice
So I could know redemption
He took the stripes upon His back so that I could walk in health
Then He broke the chains of death now I can live forevermore
It’s not because of what I am
Not because of what I’ve done
It’s because of Whose I am
 
My Father is Lord of everything from here beyond forever
He's given me His name,
Said if I’d ask anything, He'd gladly give it
He put a robe upon my back
Placed a ring upon my hand
Said the riches of heaven were all mine
It’s not because of what I am
Not because of what I’ve done
But because He first loved me
His grace has set me free
His blood is flowing through my veins
I'm adopted by the King
It's because of Whose I am

9. I’ve Got It All

Written by Reba Rambo and Dony McGuire

You wake me with the day You made 
Send the morning laughing across my room
Glad it’s not the way it was before You came
And made me believe in me, and the simple things
The beauty of the love created in me
 
I don’t have to worry
If I don’t have much money
I’m blessed with Your riches
And that’s what’s most important
 
I’ve got it all as long as I’ve got You
I’ve got it all as long as I’ve got You
If it’s rain or sunny I don’t mind
I’m content to know You live inside
You’re the Lord of everything and I’m Your child
And I’ve got it all if I’ve got You
 
You’ve made life a banquet feast
You surprise me with the sweetest things
Never cease to be amazed at what Your storehouse holds
Enough to fill all the world, every living thing
The greatness of Your giving just overwhelms me

10. A Perfect Heart

Written by Reba Rambo and Dony McGuire

Morning sun … light of creation 
Grassy fields… a velvet floor
Silver clouds … a shimmering curtain
He's designed a perfect world
 
I’m amazed at His talents
Stand in awe of One so great
Now my soul begins to sing out
To the Source from which it came
 
Bless the Lord
Who reigns in beauty
Bless the Lord
Who reigns with wisdom and with power
Bless the Lord
Who reigns my life with so much love
He can make a perfect heart
 
Praise the Lord
Who reigns in beauty
Praise the Lord
Who reigns with wisdom and with power
Praise the Lord
Who reigns my life with so much love
He can make a perfect heart

1. The Land of Oohs and Ahs / Over the Rainbow

The Land of Oohs and Ahs

Words and music by Reba Rambo

Once upon a time I was caught up in a whirlwind
Spinning fast, 'til at last I hit the ground
Then I met some folks with faith like little children
With words of truth they introduced me to their King
Put His ruby slippers on my feet
Started walkin' the Yellow Brick Road
Now I’m trav'ling for my home
Instead of bricks I’ll walk on streets of gold
 
Chorus:
We're off to the pearly white city
Where all of our dreams come true
Words can't describe its splendor
It's the Land of Oohs and Ahs
Somewhere over the rainbow, we'll see the King Jesus
He's not exactly a wizard
But he can make new creatures out of us
 
He can take a heart so cold as a tin man's
And warm it up, warm it up with His love
He can give you the courage of a lion
To stand up, stand up in the devil's face
If you've got a mixed-up scarecrow's mind
Your thoughts He will renew
If you think there's no place like home
You should see the one He's built for you

2. Ain’t Givin’ Up

Words and music by Reba Rambo

There's so many songs that haven't been sung 
There's too many roads that I ain't traveled upon
There's so many smiles waitin' around the bend
There's too much sunshine I ain't felt on my skin
Ain't givin' up now, ain't givin' up now
Ain’t givin’ up now, ain’t givin’ up now
 
Chorus:
'Cause we've been together for such a long time
It ain't been easy but we have survived
Dawn finds me near you as night fades away
Like a gentle hand you brace me
Like a warm kiss you grace me
Sweet as a Georgia rain you wash away my fears
Ain't givin' up now, ain't givin' up now, no
 
There's so many mountains we've already climbed
There's too many words, Lord, I’ve already rhymed
There's so many times we've won victory
It's too late now to start this talkin’ defeat
Ain't givin' up now, I ain't givin' up now, no
Ain’t givin’ up now, ain’t givin’ up now
 
Ain’t givin’ up now, no, no no
Too many songs I’ve already sung
Too many roads haven’t traveled upon
Ain’t givin’ up now, no, no, no

3. Sweet Jesus Peace

Words and music by Reba Rambo

What do you sing when your world’s draped in sadness 
And there’s no music in your song?
How do you smile when your heart’s lost its gladness
And the sound of laughter is all gone?
 
When all thoughts inside your mind
Like a circle keep a-spinning round
When all the friends you thought you had
Suddenly they’ve let you down
Where do you go?
 
I know a haven inside your mind
A cool, rushing river
Refreshing new wine
It can splash though the canyons
Like the waves on the sea
There’s nothing quite like it
This sweet Jesus peace
 
Chorus:
Sweet Jesus peace, water so free
Flowing from Him, to you and to me
Sweet Jesus peace, fountain we need
Flowing from Him to you and me
 
There’s nothing quite like it
This sweet Jesus peace
There’s nothing quite like it
This sweet Jesus peace
Sweet Jesus peace

4. Velvet Sunshine Mornin’

Words and music by Reba Rambo

Darkness was the town that I was living 
Confusion was my constant way of life
Then in all that chaos I saw patterns
At the break of dawn
The light of truth came shining bright
 
Chorus:
And midnight turned to velvet sunshine morning
I traded teardrops for laughter all the while
And it’s funny, I don’t see storm clouds
I see rainbows
Now I’m walkin’ happy like a child
And Jesus is the secret of my smile
 
There ain’t no need to worry where I’m going
‘Cause angels walk before to clear my way
With every step I feel His arms around me
And I’m captured by the beauty of His grace

5. Just As I Am

Arranged by Reba Rambo

Just as I am without one plea 
But that Thy blood was shed for me
And that Your love keeps bidding me
Come, come to Thee
O Lamb of God, I come, I come
 
Just as I am and waiting not
To rid my soul of one dark blot
To Thee whose precious blood it can cleanse
Every, every, every, every spot
O Lamb of God, I come, I come
 
Just as we are You will receive
And I know You’ll welcome, You’re gonna pardon, cleanse, relieve
And because, just because You promise me I’ll believe it
O Lamb of God, I come, I come
 
Just as I am without one plea
O but that Thy blood was shed for me
I come

6. Lady

Words and music by Reba Rambo

Lady sitting by the fire 
I see you’re gonna have a child
You say His Father is a spirit
And somehow you know the babe will be a boy
And He’ll grow up to be King
You think you'll call the baby Jesus
Like an angel commanded in a dream you had last night
 
Lady standing in the temple
Listening to your twelve-year-old son teach
While He speaks with words of wisdom
A part of you would rather see Him climbing trees
Playing games and just throwing rocks
And even though you know He loves you
He loves the whole world just as much, or so it seems
 
Lady kneeling on the hillside
No one knows just how it feels
To watch your own son slowly dying
And I know you’d love to hold Him
And keep Him from all the heartache He must face
But He’s the one who has been chosen
And no one else can take His place, not even you
 
Then she remembers He said He’s coming back
She knows He’s never lied before
Lady, what’s that smile you’re wearing
What’s that secret that you’re knowing
And can you tell me where you’re going
You say you’re getting everything ready
Before Jesus gets back home
You’d better hurry now
Before Jesus gets back home

7. He Gives Me Joy

Words and music by Reba Rambo

I speak His name 
And a hundred million angels start singin’
He talks to me and the freedom bells of my soul
Start to ringin’
He gives me joy in the mornin’
And gentle peace in the evenin’
 
I sing His praise
And all heaven plays a sweet orchestration
He sings to me and my heartstrings play
A song of jubilation
He gives me joy in the mornin’
And gentle peace in the evenin’
 
He gives me joy like I never knew
He’s been my friend
He’s always been true,
He’s been my strength
He’s helped me make it through
He gives me joy

8. Shepherd’s Song

Words and music by Reba Rambo

Hey, little lamb, did you mean to stray 
Or did you slowly wander ‘til you lost your way?
Now you’re afraid that I won’t come to your rescue
But to Me, you’re very special
The flock is not complete without you
 
Chorus:
I will leave the ninety and nine
I will climb upon the highest cleft of the mountain
I know where you are
I hear you calling My name
Nothing can stop Me now
‘Til you’re back in the fold once again
 
I’ll pick you up, kiss away your tears
Hold you close, carry you back to the valley fields
Then the other lambs will sing a welcome song
And with My own hands, I’ll feed you
And once again, you’ll be made strong
 
(last chorus)
‘Til you’re back in the fold
Until I can hold you,
‘Til you’re back in the fold once again

9. Wonderful

Words and music by Reba Rambo and David Huntsinger

I wish I could find the right words 
To tell You how I feel
I wish I could sing the right notes to You
That might appeal
I don’t have the voice of an angel
But I’d still like to tell You I’m thankful
So I’ll write this special love song
And dedicate it to You
 
I can say You’re wonderful, You’re marvelous
Oh, You’re everything to me
You’re the best of friends, my closest kin
And all I’ll ever need
You’re the King of Kings, Lord of Lords,
But that don’t tell it all
I guess because, Lord, You’re so great
And my words are oh, so small
 
In spirit and in truth, I’ll worship Thee
Each day my heart will sing Your praise anew
I thank You for the life You’ve given me
But my simple rhymes and phrases

10. Lift Him Up

Words and music by Reba Rambo

Lift Him up, lift Him up
Lift the name of Jesus higher
Lift Him up, raise His banner to the sky
He said if I be lifted up I will draw all men unto Me
Lift Him up all ye people, lift Him up
 
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord
Praise His righteousness forever
Praise the Lord, lift your voices to the sky
He said if we won't praise His name
Then the rocks and stones will cry out
Praise the Lord all ye people, praise the Lord
 
Show His love show His love
Show His love to everybody
Show His love let your candle always shine
He said that by the love we show
They will know we're His disciples
Show His love all ye people, show His love
