Lyrics

V1
Seeking, searching
Ancient lore & pages
Stories tell the future in the past
List'ning, hearing
Prophets, priests and sages
Telling of the day some call the last

Chorus
The End of Time - Can't be told by one
The End of Time - Has to come to pass
The End of Time - When the Lord is done
The End of Time - The heavens are not brass

V2
Marking, Counting
Thru the Mayan ages
To prove the day the planets will align
Crying, Dying
Sin will have its wages
Christ returns the day of God's design

Chorus/Solo

Bridge

Stimulate the intellect
Satisfy your mind
Seeing what your friends respect
Seeing but still blind

Chorus/End

Lyrics

V-1  Before the show, guyliner & gauges,
 a brother came up to me.
 He wanted to know 'Is the Word just pages?
Another church hating me.'
 

'My heart is new. My world has changed.
 But saints don't seem to be, the loving

people I've read about. So religious - they can't see.

I came to the Lord & the usher said,

'If I have to love you, I'd rather be dead'
 
Chorus
  
He wants to be my friend, He wants to see me go.

I don't think he knows what he's supposed to know.

He wants to call me vain, He's just a talker.

He's just judging me 'cuz I'm a Christian Rocker!

 

 V-2  After the show, with her spikes and tats,
 a sister came up to me.

She wanted to know '... just where it's at?' 
On the twisted way life could be.
 

'My life is new. I'm full of love.
But my friends don't seem to see, 'I rock like

you but the difference is, Jesus Christ is the key.' 

I came to the Lord & my boyfriend said,

'If I have to love you, I'd rather be dead'

Chorus

Bridge
  My family saw a difference it was plain to see.
 My mama noticed that there was a change in me.
 She asked me how it happened then I turned to her &

said, "... some Stryper, Red, Skillet and some Messenger!"

Lyrics

 

Expedition: Eternal life. Explored from every quarter
Disillusioned with this world; Money or Lust or Fame
A finder sought, a seeker found drinking living water
Says he met the God-Man Christ, the Son of God by name

 

Come to His throne. We come to Him alone

 

Shangri-La, Xanadu, Utopia, Nirvana
Many seek and they find their search is all in vain
Heaven-sent, Earthen-scarred; Jesus the Messiah
When you seek Him you will find heaven is yours to gain

 

Come to His throne. We come to Him alone

Lyrics

Shadows fall in the garden as I try to pray and think
I hear the call blood for pardon,  this is the cup I am to drink
Though I see the doubt around me, I will never give
For I know if I don't die, they will never live

 

Chorus
Slap my face, accuse me falsely, sentence me to die
Crown my head and whip me deadly. Can you tell me why?
Stretch me out and nail me down. A cross then did I earn?
Be prepared I shall arise, and I will return.

 

I speak to all some wear a frown as I preach the blood of Christ
They've built a wall that must come down. A prideful heart brings such a price
Though I see the fight around me, I know I must forgive.
For I know that when I die, I forever live!

 

Chorus

 

Bridge
Beautiful are the feet of him who brings good news
Why hate the messenger who comes? Because it makes you choose!

Lyrics

Rule Maker

Pharisees and Sadducees made rules that burden men

Christian leaders do it still today

Christ had come to chastise some and show the love of God.

Those leaders heard Him say

 

Chorus     

Rule Maker – You love the role you play

You Faker – Ignoring your own sin

Soul Breaker – You stand in heaven’s doorway

You don’t enter and you won’t let me in

 

Time will tell as hearts will fail when fear overcomes men

Did our leaders tell us what is true?

Christ has said ‘Now do not dread. I’ve overcome the world.

Or will they just blame you

Chorus

Am I going to hell?        Tell me can you tell?

I followed all your rules.        Now you look like fools!

Solo              Chorus

Lyrics

A mother pleads for her daughter. A father cries for his son

A runaway gone with a man; A party lover on the run.

 

Won't you come home, won't you come home, won't you come home?

Won't you come home, won't you come home, won't you come home?

 

A wife looks out of the window. A husband keeps checking his phone.

She told him that she forgives him. Will this fight leave him alone?

She told him that she forgives him. Will this fight leave him alone?

 

Won't you come home, won't you come home, won't you come home?

Won't you come home, won't you come home, won't you come home?

 

The Lord Christ pleads with His fallen. The Maker cries out to all men.

"Turn from going your own way." He won't be asking again.

"Turn from going your own way." He won't be asking again!

 

Won't you come home, won't you come home, won't you come home?

Won't you come home, won't you come home, won't you come home?

Power

With footsteps of thunder the Lord will arrive.

As He steps on the Mount of Olives it’ll crack open wide

He’s the Lord over heaven. He’s the Lord over Earth,

The Beginning of Creation, the Last and the First.

Bridge

And with a heart of love He died for sinners

He came down from above to make them winners

Chorus

For those who trust in Him, He has power (power)

To help with sin, He has power (power). So you & I can win He has power

V2

With lightning and thunder the Lord fills the skies

He looks down on Creation with Creator’s eyes

He looks down from heaven, down to the Earth

He sent His Son Jesus to bring second birth

Bridge - Chorus – Bass Solo

V3

With great awe and wonder here the Spirit speak

His strength is found perfected in the place we are weak

The power of heaven can be yours in this hour

With the Holy Ghost within you, you have power

Lyrics

V.1 - Walking in the city streets at night,

 it’s enough to give me a streak of fright

To think somebody might come at me

 with a gun or a knife spill my blood and flee

Why should I fear? The Lord is near. I have His might.

 And I stand for the right.

 

Chorus

I will fear no evil for the Lord is with me

And in His hands I will always be

It is by faith I can truly see

I will fear no evil, for the Lord is with me

 

V.2 – When I think that I’ve made an enemy

 and he wants to make life hard for me

Or a, demon spirit comes around

 casting doubts and fears without a sound

Why should I fear? The Lord is near. I have His might.

 And I stand for the right.

Chorus

Bridge

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

Though my enemies compass me about

I’ll have no fear for the Lord gives me rest

And in His closeness I’ll have no doubt!

Guitar Solo    Chorus

Lyrics

V.1 -   You hold them in bondage you keep them as slaves

You’ll stagger drunk tomorrow but you’re rock stars today

Your fan spread the word for you and you band sounds in their heads

You ask for their love but their money you want instead

They worship you as gods and they follow in your ways

They’ve learned your evil words and rebels they became. And I say to you

Chorus

Let my people go. Let my people go. Let my people go

 

V.2 -   You sit behind your big oak desk with ‘Producer’ on your door

You sign their names as if in blood and continue to ask for more

With dollar signs in your eyes you push them, drive them hard

You become the thing they sing against,

 And that’s what makes them stars

Chorus

Bridge

And the Lord spake unto Moses “Go in unto Pharaoh and say unto him,

 ‘Thus saith the Lord, ‘Let my people that they may serve me.”

 

V.3 – You draw them in with sugar and them you give them salt

You say you know what life is for but devil I know that’s not all

They follow you blindly from behind the gates of hell

I’m knocking at that door Jesus said it can’t prevail

And I’m telling you – devil!

Chorus (Repeat a cappella)

Messenger

Lyrics

I’m John on the Isle of Patmos, I was exiled here

I’ve lived in the sufferings of my Lord and He knows every tear

I walked with Him and I heard his words and I know what He said

He’s the Son of God; He’s the Lord of Life who rose from the dead

V 2.

They mocked Him, they smacked Him, they pulled out His beard

They laughed at Him as He spoke the truth. ‘Crucify Him’ they sneered.

They slashed His back, crowned His head with thorns. They nailed Him to the tree.

And though He died, He was raised again like He said He would be.

Chorus

He is the Risen Christ, who carried paradise to be with Him on high, Him who is glorified.

He’s the Lord, He is God Almighty Jesus. He’s the Lord, He is God Almighty Jesus.

V3.

I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day when it came to pass

Said a voice behind me ‘I am Alpha & Omega, the First & the Last’

I turned to see who spoke to me with a voice like the sea.

With eyes of fire, shining like the sun, I knew he must be,

Chorus - Bridge

I didn’t know when I’d see Him again, when I saw Him I knew right then.

This was God the Creator of man. I fell to my face I could no longer stand

Chorus
