Are You With Me

Are You With Me
words and music by: Lance Appleton
(Matthew 12:30-31)


Are you with me … are you with me
are you with me … are you with me
are you with me … are you with me
he that is not with me … is against me
he that gathereth not with me … scattereth abroad

wherefore I say unto you all manner of sin
and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men
but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost
shall not be forgiven unto men

are you with me … are you with me
are you with me … are you with me
are you with me … are you with me
are you with me … then don’t argue with me

hear O Israel the Lord our God is One Lord
hear O Israel the Lord our God is One
and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all of thy heart
and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all of thy soul
and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all of thy mind
and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all of thy strength

are you with me … are you with me
are you with me … are you with me
are you with me … are you with me
are you with me … then don’t argue with me

Rejoice in the Lord Always

 

Rejoice in the Lord Always
Words and music by: Lance Appleton
(Philippians 4:4-6)


philippians_4-6

Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say
rejoice in the Lord always and again and again and again and again
rejoice in the Lord always and again I say
rejoice in the Lord always and again and again and again and again

be careful for nothing but in everything by prayer
and supplications with thanksgiving
let your request be made known unto God
and the peace of God which passes all understanding
shall keep your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus

Never Thirst Again

Never Thirst Again
Words and music by: Lance Appleton


Now from somewhere down deep inside I start to cry
tears of joy falling from my eyes
I can hear the sweetest anthem ever sung
no purer tones on mortal tongue

I’ll never thirst again
I’ll never thirst again

nothing else in all the years I’ve lived
ever has affected me like this
not one of the places I have been
not one of my acquaintances or friends
ever washed away my sins

nothing written in the books I’ve read
not what some philosopher has said
nowhere in the drugs or the alcohol
was there any love like this at all

you have raised … you have raised me
you have raised me from the dead

I’m coming just as you commanded
to the fountain of forgiveness
now I’m plunging under covered by your name
rivers of living water flow from my innermost being
you are the only one who know what it is
you are the only one who know

Now from somewhere down deep inside i start to cry
tears of joy falling from my eyes
I can hear the sweetest anthem ever sung
no purer tones on mortal tongue

I’ll never thirst again
I’ll never thirst again

Spring up o well of joy and gladness
spring up O well of sweet salvation
Holy Ghost make intercession

Rivers of water flow from my innermost being
You are the only one who knows what it is …
You are the only one who knows what it is I’m needing
life’s eternal mysteries heavens revelations
like a flower opening filled with holy
filled with holy , filled with holy fragrance.

Now from somewhere down deep inside i start to cry
tears of joy falling from my eyes
I can hear the sweetest anthem ever sung
no purer tones on mortal tongue

I’ll never thirst again
I’ll never thirst again … I’ll never thirst again

All Power

All Power
words and music by: Lance Appleton
Matthew 28:18-20


all-powerBuried with Him in the only name
given among men whereby we must be saved
buried with Him in the only name under heaven

all power is given unto me in heaven and in earth
all power is given unto me in heaven and in earth

go ye therefore and teach all nation
baptizing them in the name of the Father
and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost
teaching them to observe all things
whatsoever I have commanded you
and lo I am with you always
even unto the end of the world amen

buried in the name of the Father
buried in the name of the Son
buried in the name of the Holy Ghost

Jesus is the one
He’s the only one
Jesus is the one with all power

all power is given unto me in heaven and in earth
all power is given unto me in heaven and in earth

so I got buried with Him in the only name
given among men whereby we must be saved
buried with him in the only name under heaven
under heaven … under heaven

My Offering

My Offering

Words and music by: Lance Appleton


Let my prayer be set before you as incense
and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice
Let my prayer be set before you as incense
and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice

I’m on my way to heaven
I’ve got a ways to go
when I’m underneath a burden and the weight of it is so heavy

Lord I cry unto thee harken thou unto me
and give ear unto my prayer
when I cry unto Thee
Let my pray fill the air
with a fragrance of praise
and Lord please receive my offering

This is my offering by faith a gift of love my spirit makes
this is my song to thee oh King
it is my offering

Let my prayer be set before you as incense
and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice

Come with me my love

 

 

 

Come with me my love
words and music by: Lance Appleton


Come with me to eternity
my spirit will not away strive with man
my spirit will not away strive
I can’t let it go, I can’t let it go on
I can’t let it go, I can’t let it go on
forever, forever

So come with me to eternity …

The world will never live in peace
till all the wars in heaven cease
I can’t let it go, I can’t let it go on
I can’t let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go on
I can’t let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go on forever

So come with me to eternity …
follow me my love …
follow me to eternity …
come and see my love …
come and see my love …

This is no temporary plan
I promised when we first began
I said life will go … life will go on
life will go … life will go on forever
forever

but time will be no more
time will be no more
time will be … no more time
no more time will be
so come with me to eternity
follow me my love
follow me to eternity …
come and see my love …
my love … come and see
