"I"

 

I Am a Pilgrim

I am a pilgrim and a stranger

Traveling through this wearisome land

And I've got a home in that yonder city, good Lord

And it's not (good Lordy it's not) not made by hand

I got a mother, a sister and a brother

Who have gone to that sweet home

And I am determined to go and see them, good Lord

Over on (good Lordy over on) that distant shore


As I go down to that river Jordan

Just to bathe my weary soul

If I could touch but just the hem of His garment, good Lord

I believe (good Lordy I believe) that it would make me whole


Now when I'm dead, laying in my coffin

All of my friends all gather round

They can say that he's just laying there sleeping, good Lord

Sweet peace (Lordy sweet peace) his son is found

 

 

I Can Almost See the Lights of Home
 


John tells of a city that he saw coming down,

Where no sorrow, pain, or death will be known.

And someday we can go there

through His marvelous grace;

Forever live in that heavenly home.

Oh, I can almost see the lights of that city.

I see them gathered all around the great white throne.

Through faith in my savior and His wonderful love,

Oh, I can almost see the lights of home.
 

Well, sometimes I'm so burdened

and my cross is hard to bear,

And ol' satan, he tries to dim my view.

I just look up to Jesus, He is standing close by.

And once again, His great light shines through.
 



I Can't Even Walk

C G C G

Well I thought number one would surely be me

C G

I thought I could be what I wanted to be

Em

I thought I could build on life's sinking sand

G D G

But I can't even walk without You holding my hand
 

C G C G

I can't even walk without you holding my hand

D7 G C G

The mountain's too high and the valley's too wide

C G C G

Down on my knees I learned to stand

G C G D G

Lord I can't even walk without You holding my hand
 

Well I thought I had done a lot on my own

I thought I could make it all alone

I thought of myself as a mighty big man

But I can't even walk without You holding my hand
 

I think I'll make Jesus my one and my all,

From now on when I'm in trouble, only His name I'll call

If I can't trust Him I'll be less of a man

'Cause I can't even walk without You holding my hand.

 

 

I Can't Feel At Home
 

This world is not my home I'm just a passing through

My treasures and my hopes are all beyond the blue

Where many friends and kindred have gone on before

And I cant feel at home in this world anymore

Oh lord you know I have no friend like you

If heaven's not my home oh lord what would I do

Angel's beckon me to heaven's open door

And I cant feel at home in this world anymore
 

Over in glory land there is no dying there

The saints are shouting victory and singing everywhere

I hear the voice of them that I have heard before

And I cant feel at home in this world anymore

Heaven's expecting me that's one I know

I fixed it up with Jesus a long time ago

He will take me through though I am weak and poor

And I cant feel at home in this world anymore

Oh I have a loving mother over in glory land

I don't expect to stop until I shake her hand

She's gone on before just waiting at heaven's door

And I cant feel at home in this world anymore

 

 

I Feel Like Traveling On
 

My Heavenly home is bright an' fair

I feel like traveling on

No pain or death can enter there

I feel like traveling on
 

Yes, I feel like traveling on

I feel like traveling on

My Heavenly home is bright and fair

An' I feel like traveling on

The Lord has been so good to me

I feel like traveling on

He saved my soul an' now I'm free

An' I feel like traveling on

 

 

I Have Decided to Follow Jesus

I have [G] decided to follow Jesus.

I have [C] decided to follow [G] Jesus.

I have decided to follow Jesus.

I can't turn [D7] back, I can't turn [G] back.

With the cross [G] before me

and the world behind me.

With the cross [C] before me

and the world [G] behind me.

With the cross before me

and the world behind me.

I can't turn [D7] back,

I can't turn [G] back.
 

Though none go with me, still I will follow.

Though none go with me, still I will follow.

Though none go with me, still I will follow.

I can't turn back, I can't turn back.

 

 

I Have That Joy

 

I have the joy, joy, joy, joy,

Down in my heart,

Down in my heart,

Down in my heart,

I have the joy, joy, joy, joy,

Down in my heart,

Down in my heart to stay.

 

I have the peace that passeth understanding,

Down in my heart,

Down in my heart,

Down in my heart,

I have the peace that passeth understanding,

Down in my heart,

Down in my heart to stay.

 

I have the love of Jesus, love of Jesus,

Down in my heart,

Down in my heart,

Down in my heart,

I have the love of Jesus, love of Jesus,

Down in my heart,

Down in my heart to stay.

 

For there is therefore now no condemnation,

Down in my heart, (X3)

For there is therefore now no condemnation,

Down in my heart,

Down in my heart to stay.

 

 

I Just Feel Like Something Good Is About To Happen

When God's people humble themselves to call on Jesus,

And they look to Heaven, expecting as they pray...

I just feel like something good is about to happen,

And, baby, this could be the very day.

I just feel like something good is about to happen.

I just feel like something good is on it's way.

He has promised that he'd open all of heaven,

And, Brother, it could happen any day.
 

I have learned in all that happens just to praise him,

For I know he's working all things for my good.

Every tear I shed is worth all the investment

For I know he'll see me through; he said he would.
 

He has promised eye nor ear can hardly fathom

All the things he has in store for those who pray.

I just feel like something good is about to happen,

And, baby, this could be the very day.
 

Yes I've noticed all the bad news in the paper,

And it seems like things are bleaker every day.

But for this child of God it makes no difference,

For things are bound are bound to get better either way.

I've never been more thrilled about tomorrow.

Sunshine's always bursting through the skies of gray.

I just feel like something good is about to happen,

And, brother, this could be the very day.

 

 

I Know the Lord Will Make a Way for Me


I know the Lord will make a way for me.

I know the Lord will make a way for me.

If I live a holy life,

Shun the wrong and do the right,

I know the Lord will make a way for me.

He died to save me from my sin and shame.

He died to save me from my sin and shame.

Though my needs be great or small

He has suffered for them all,

He died to save me from my sin and shame.
 

'Twill be a joy to hear Him say well done.

'Twill be a joy to hear Him say well done.

If I trust and never doubt,

Pay my tithes and sing and shout,

'Twill be a joy to hear Him say well done.

 

 

I Never Shall Forget The Day

Long years ago, I was lost in sin

There was no hope, no peace within

Down on my knees in agony

Well, I prayed to Jesus, then He gladly set me free

Well, I never shall forget the day

When all the burdens from my soul was rolled away

It made me happy, glad, and free

I'll sing and shout it for He's everything to me

Oh sinner come to Jesus now

At His nail pierced feet, you must humbly bow.

Confess to Him your every sin

He'll save and cleanse you, give you the perfect peace within
 

I never shall forget the day

When all the burdens of my soul was rolled away

It made me happy, glad, and free

I'll sing and shout it for He's everything to me

 

I Saw The Light



I wandered so aimless, life filled with sin

I wouldn't let my dear Savior in

Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night

Praise the Lord. I saw the light.
 

I saw the light, I saw the light

No more in darkness, no more night

Now I'm so happy, no sorrow in sight

Praise the Lord, I saw the light.
 

Just like a blind man I wandered along

Worries and fears I claimed for my own

Then like the blind man that God gave back his sight

Praise the Lord, I saw the light.
 

I was a fool to wander and stray

Straight is the gate and narrow the way

Now I have traded he wrong for the right

Praise the Lord, I saw the light.

 

I Shall Not Be Moved

Glory hallelujah, I shall not be moved

Anchored in Jehovah, I shall not be moved;

Just like a tree that's planted by the waters,

I shall not be moved.

I shall not be, I shall not be moved;

I shall not be, I shall not be moved;

Just like a tree that's planted by the waters,

I shall not be moved.

In His love abiding, I shall not be moved;

And in Him I'm hiding I shall not be moved.

Just like a tree that's planted by the waters,

I shall not be moved.

Though all hell assail me, I shall not be moved;

Jesus will not fail me I shall not be moved.

Just like a tree that's planted by the waters,

I shall not be moved.

Though the tempest rages, I shall not be moved;

On the Rock of AgesI shall not be moved.

Just like a tree that's planted by the waters,

I shall not be moved.

I Was There When It Happened

There are some people who say we cannot tell

Whether we are saved or whether all is well

They say we only can hope & trust that is so

Well, I was there when it happened & so I guess I ought to know

Yes I know when Jesus saved me

The very moment he forgave me

He took away my heavy burden lord, he gave me peace within

Satan can't make me doubt it

It's real & I'm gonna shout it

I was there when it happened & so I guess I ought to know

I don't care who tells me, salvation is not brief

Though the world may argue that we cannot feel

The heavy burden's lifted & the foul sins go

I was there when it happened & so I guess I ought to know.


"We were there when it happened & so we thought,

you ought to know"

 

 

I Won't Have To Worry



Down here the burdens are heavy

and the road is rough and long,

Sometimes my feet grow weary and so slow.

There's a brighter day a coming,

soon I'll step on heaven's shore,

And I won't have to worry anymore.

No I won't have to worry when I reach the other shore.

All my troubles will be over and I'll rest forevermore.

My eyes will be on Jesus, and my heart will be aglow,

And I won't have to worry anymore.

Someday when life is over

and I've said my last goodbyes,

I'll see the Savior standing at the door.

I'll hear him say, "You're welcome.

All your cares you've left behind

And I won't have to worry anymore.


I Would Not Be Denied

When pangs of death seized on my soul,

Unto the Lord I cried,

Till Jesus came and made me whole,

I would not be denied.

I would not be denied,

I would not be denied,

Till Jesus came and made me whole,

I would not be denied.

As Jacob in the days of old,

I wrestled with the Lord;

And instant with a courage bold

I stood upon His word.

Old Satan said my Lord was gone

And would not hear my prayer,

But, praise the Lord! the work is done,

And Christ the Lord is here.

 

 

I Wouldnít Take Nothing For My Journey Now

Well, I wouldnít take nothiní for my journey now

Iím, gonna make it to Heaven somehow

Though the devil tempts me and tries to turn me around

Heís offered everything thatís got a name

All the wealth I want and worldly fame

If I could still I wouldnít take nothiní for my journey now

Well I started out a-travelliní for the Lord many years ago

I had a lot of heartaches, met a lot of grief and woe

But when I would stumble, then I would humble down

And I can say thank the Lord

I wouldnít take nothiní for my journey now

Thereís nothiní in the world thatíll ever take the place of Godís love

Silver and gold could never buy a mighty touch from up above

But when my soul needs a healiní and I begin to feeliní His power

I can say thank the Lord

I wouldnít take nothing for my journey now

Heís offered everything thatís got a name

All the wealth I want and worldly fame

If I could still I wouldnít take nothiní for my journey now

 

 

I'll Be Satisfied

 

When my soul is singing in that promised land above,

I'll be satisfied;

Praising Christ the Savior for redeeming grace and love,

I'll be satisfied.

 

I'll be satisfied, (satisfied,)

I'll be satisfied; (satisfied;)

When my soul is resting in the presence of the Lord,

I'll be satisfied.

 

Living in a city where the soul shall never die,

I'll be satisfied;

There to meet with loved ones, never more to say goodby,

I'll be satisfied.

 

When I meet the ransomed over on the golden shore,

I'll be satisfied;

I'll join with the angels singing praises evermore,

I'll be satisfied.

 

 

 

I'll Be Somewhere Listening
 

(E)When the Saviour (A) calls I will (E) answer

When He (B7) calls to me, I will hear (E) Him

When the Saviour (A) calls I will (E) answer

I'll be (B7) somewhere listening for my (E) name.
 

I'll be (A) somewhere listening

I'll be (E) somewhere listening

I'll be (B7) somewhere listening for my (E) name

I'll be (A) somewhere listening

I'll be (E) somewhere listening

I'll be (B7) somewhere listening for my (E) name
 

If my heart is right when He calls me

If my heart is right, I will hear Him

If my heart is right when He calls me

I'll be somewhere listening for my name

If my robe is white when He calls me

If my robe is white, I will hear Him

If my robe is white when He calls me

I'll be somewhere listening for my name

 

 

I'll Fly Away
 


Some glad morning when this life is over, I'll fly away

To a home on God's celestial shore, I'll fly away

I'll fly away, O glory, I'll fly away

When I die, hallelujah, by and by, I'll fly away.

When the shadows of this life have gone, I'll fly away

Like a bird from prison bars has flown, I'll fly away.

Just a few more weary days and then, I'll fly away.

To a land where joys shall never end, I'll fly away.

 

 

I'll Live On

 

'Tis a sweet and glorious thought that comes to me,

I'll live on (and on), Yes, I'll live on.

Jesus saved my soul from death and now I'm free,

I'll live on (and on), Yes, I'll live on.

 

I'll live on (and on), Yes, I'll live on (and on).

Through Eternity I'll live on (and on).

I'll live on (and on), yes, I'll live on (and on).

Through Eternity I'll live on (yes, I'll live on ).

 

When my body's lying in the cold, cold clay,

I'll live on (and on), Yes, I'll live on.

I will dwell with Jesus till the Judgement Day.

I'll live on (and on), Yes, I'll live on.

 

When the world's on fire and darkness veils the sun,

I'll live on (and on), Yes, I'll live on.

Men will cry and to the rocks and mountains run,

I'll live on (and on), Yes, I'll live on.

 

In the Glory land, with God upon the throne,

I'll live on (and on), Yes, I'll live on.

Through eternal ages singing Home sweet home,

I'll live on (and on), Yes, I'll live on.

 

 

 

I'll Trade the Old Cross for a Crown

A A E A

I shall not bear the cross through yon City,

A7 D A

When the burdens of life are laid down.

E A A7

When I knock on the portals of heaven,

D E A

I will trade the old cross for a crown.

A E A A7

And I will trade the old cross for a crown,

D A E A

When the burdens of life I lay down.

E A A7

When those pearly gates for me shall swing open,

D E A

I will trade the old cross for a crown.

Though the cross oftentimes has been heavy,

And all fortune on me begins to frown.

But how happy I'll be over yonder,

When I trade the old cross for a crown.

Every cross that I bear for my Saviour,

Will at last one day when He calls me lay down.

And all my sorrow will then be forgotten,

And that's when I'll trade the old cross for a crown.

 

 

 

If God is Dead
 

He puts flowers on the hills;

Our cups he gladly fills;

How can you turn around and say God is dead;

And when your stories have all been told,

There's one thing I'd like to know,

If God is dead, who's this living in my soul.

He gives us shelter from life's stormy weather;

Gives us love to keep us together,

When life gets like a ship on a raging sea;

And when the stage of life grows cold,

Somebody helps us play our role;

If God is dead, who's this living in my soul.

If my soul had windows,

I'd leave them open so the world could see,

The ugly scars upon those hands,

That bled for you and me;

There's a bridge you can cross if you will;

The toll was paid on Golgotha's hill;

If God is dead, who's this living in my soul.

 

 

If I Could Hear My Mother Pray Again
 

How sweet and happy see those days of which I dream

When memory recalls them now and then!

And with what rapture sweet my weary heart would beat

If I could hear my mother pray again.

If I could hear my mother pray again

If I could hear her tender voice as then!

So glad I'd be, 'twould mean so much to me,

If I could hear my mother pray again.
 

She used to pray that I on Jesus would reply,

And always walk the shining gospel way.

So trusting still His love I seek that home above,

Where I shall meet my mother some glad day.

Within the old homeplace her patient, smiling face

Was always spreading comfort, hope and cheer;

And when she used to sing to her eternal king,

It was the songs the angels loved to hear.

Her work on earth is done, the life-crown has been won,

And she will be at rest with Him above,

And some glad morning she, I know will welcome me

To that eternal home of peace and love.

 

 

If That isn't Love
 

(G) He left the (D) splendour of (G) heaven

(C) Knowing His (D) desti(G)ny

Was the (G) lonely hill of Gol(C)gatha

There to (G) lay down His (D) life for (G) me
 

If (G) that isn't (C) love the ocean is (G) dry

There's no stars in the (D) sky

And the sparrow can't (G) fly

If that isn't (C) love then heaven's a (G) myth

There's no feeling like (F) this

If that isn't (G) love (C) (G) (C)

Even in death He remembered

The thief hanging by His side

He spoke with love and compassion

The He took him to paradise

 

 

If We Never Meet Again

 

Soon we'll come to the end of life's journey
And perhaps we'll never meet anymore
'Til we gather in heaven's bright city
Far away on that beautiful shore

If we never meet again this side of heaven
As we struggle through this world and its strife
There's another meeting place somewhere in heaven
By the river of life

Where the charming roses bloom forever
And where separation come no more
If we never meet again this side of heaven
I will meet you on that beautiful shore

Oh so often we are parted with sorrow
And action often quietens our pain
But we never shall sorrow in heaven
God be with you till we meet again

 

Iím So Glad He Found Me


I was on the mountain
Wandering from the fountain
When I heard my Jesus speak to me
He said come to me relenting
Of your sins repenting
And I will lift you out where you can see

And Iím so glad He found me
In love He bound me
Put His arms around me
And He led me to the shelter
And now Iím one of His own
And oh the joy of knowing
With my heart a glowing
Some day Iím going
To my home, my home in glory
And walk on streets paved with gold

I will love Him ever
Stray from Him no never
For Heís the dearest friend Iíve ever knew
And when I see Him yonder
My love will then grow fonder
In that happy land beyond the blue
chorus, then
Iím gonna walk them streets paved with gold

 

 

In the Garden

 

G

I come to the garden alone,

C G

While the dew is still on the roses;

D G Em

And the voice I hear, falling on my ear,

A D

The Son of God discloses.
 

D G D

And He walks with me and He talks with me

D7 G

And He tells me I am His own

G G7 C Cm

And the joy we share as we tarry there,

G D G

None other has ever known.

He speaks and the sound of His voice

Is so sweet the birds stop their singing.

And the melody that He gave to me

Within my heart is ringing.

Iíd stay in the garden with Him

Though the night around me is falling.

But He bids me go; through the voice of woe,

His voice to me is calling.


In The Sweet Bye And Bye

Thereís a land that is fairer than day and

By faith we can see it afar

For the Father waits over the wave

To prepare us a dwelling place there
 

In the sweet bye and bye

We shall meet on that beautiful shore

In the sweet bye and bye

We shall meet on that beautiful shore

We shall sing on that beautiful shore

The melodious songs of the blest

And our spirit shall sorrow no more

Not a sigh for the blessing of rest

To our bountiful Father above

We will offer a tribute of praise

For the glorious gift of his love

And the blessing that hallow our days

 

 

It Must Have Rained In Heaven

One hammer cast a shadow on a rough and stony ground

It was raised toward heaven

and all at once it came crashing down

It drove a spike twelve inches long

through each tender hand

And nailed to a wooden cross one guiltless man

 

Two dice were thrown in mockery

for his robe as he died

One spear was cast in anger

into one precious side

Two eyes were cast up toward heaven

forgive them God he prayed

And it must have rained in heaven on crucifixion day

 

I know it must have rained in heaven on crucifixion day

All the lights went out in heaven

Except the light of love that somehow stayed

And I know it must have rained in heaven on crucifixion day

 

 

 

 

It's Beginning To Rain


It's beginning to rain, hear the voice of the Father

Saying whosoever will, come drink of this water

I have promised to pour my spirit out

on your sons and your daughters

If you're thirsty and dry, look up to the sky

It's beginning to rain.
 

The turtle dove is singing it's sweet song of mourning

The leaves on the trees turn their silver cups to the sky

The silent clouds above are beginning to gather

The barren land is thirsty and so am I.

The young man's eyes start to shine as he tells of his vision

The old understands for he's dreamed his dreams

With the thrill of being alive they reach for each other

And they dance in the rain with the joy that they've seen.

At the first drop of rain that you hear, throw

open the windows

Go call all your children together and throw wide the door

When the rains of the spirit are falling, fill every vessel

For he who drinks his fill will thirst no more

 

 

Iím Not Giving Up
 

Well Iím not giving up no Iím not turning round

By the grace of God Iíll win a shining crown someday

Well Iíll keep holding on to that nail scarred hand

Iím not giving up No Iíll keep going on

Iíve been walking thru the valley, thru this vale of tears

at times Iíve even questioned even if my lord was near

Many times that old tempter says why not turn around

You canít get any farther because youíre just losing ground

Would you mind to tell me?

Thereís been something bothering me

Why is that old devil he just wonít let Godís children be?

You see he has purposed and determined to get right in the way

And turn us from the way of life and lead our souls astray


Iím So Glad He Found Me

 

I was on the mountain

Wandering from the fountain

When I heard my Jesus speak to me

He said come to me relenting

Of your sins repenting

And I will lift you out where you can see

 

And Iím so glad He found me

In love He bound me

Put His arms around me

And He led me to the shelter

And now Iím one of His own

And oh the joy of knowing

With my heart a glowing

Some day Iím going

To my home, my home in glory

And walk on streets paved with gold

 

I will love Him ever

Stray from Him no never

For Heís the dearest friend Iíve ever knew

And when I see Him yonder

My love will then grow fonder

In that happy land beyond the blue

 

 

It's Me Again Lord

Troubles come and I can't find an answer
Lonely nights I spend in agony
I have no other friend that I can turn to
So here I am Lord back on my knees.

It's me again Lord,'
I've got a prayer that needs an answer
It's me again Lord,
I've got a problem I can't solve
Well I don't mean to worry you
but here I am facing something new
And I need help
that only comes from You,
it's me again Lord.

Well I know You're mighty busy in Your Heaven
Forming worlds and hanging stars to shine
But You promised if I'd ask I'd receive it
So here I am Lord asking one more time.

 

 

 

 

I'm Going That Way

 

I've heard of a land of joy and peace and wonderful light,

A beautiful place of mansions fair and skiesever bright,

Where all who believe the Savior, dear forever shall stay,

And having been saved by grace divine, I'm going that way.

 

I'm going that way, I'm going that way,

And Jesus the Savior I adore is with me each day;

I'm clinging to Him, and never to stray,

Yes, singing His praises all day long, I'm going that way.

 

The glorious news I tell and sing as onward I go,

That those who are still astray in sin my Savior may know,

I want them to sing His praise above some beautiful day,

For glory to Him who died for me, I'm going that way.

 

I know I shall meet Him at the gate when trials are past,

I know I shall meet Him face to face in glory at last,

And Oh I believe that when we meet "well done" He will say,

For trusting His soul redeeming love, I'm going that way

 

 

I've Been Changed

Well I've been to the river, I've been baptized

I've been washed in the blood of the Lamb

I've been changed from the creature that once I was

And redeemed is now my name (now my name)

I've been changed (I've been changed)

I'm a new born now (I'm new born now)

All my life has been rearranged

What a difference it made

When the Lord came and stayed

In my heart, oh yes I've been changed
 

Well I grew up wondering how to live

I was trying to fulfill every dream

But nothing had ever satisfied me

'Til the day the Lord set me free (set me free)
 

Bridge:

I've been washed in the blood of my Savior

Jesus died on the cross just for me

No more must I carry this burden

From the shackles of sin I am free

When at last in His presence I stand above

He will wipe all the tears from my eyes

And I'll thank Him for giving a wretch like me

Lasting hope beyond the skies (beyond the sky)

 

I've Never Been This Homesick Before

There's a light in the window

And the table's set in splendor

Someone's standing by the open door (open door)

I can see a crystal river

Oh I must be near forever

And I've never been this homesick before
 

See the bright light shine

It's just about hometime

I can see my Father standing at the door

This world has been a wilderness

I'm headed for deliverance

Lord, I've never been this homesick before

I can see the family gather

Sweet faces, there all familiar

But no one's old or feeble anymore (never grow old)

Oh this lonesome heart is cryin'

Think I'll spread my wings for flyin'

Lord, I've never felt this homesick before.
