Melodies From Heaven (skate remix)
. . .


Savior, more than life to me
You are the joy and air I breathe
No other lover shall there be
That makes my spirit sing (sang)
Hold me close don't let me go
You're the only friend I'll ever know
That is why I love You so
More than life to me
More than life to me

(Choir repeats)

(Lead & choir....Lead ad-libs)

More, more
I've been searchin' and You are

More, more, more
Yes You are

You are more than life to me
Yes You are
That is why I love You so

More than life to me

. . .


Words & Music by Kirk Franklin

I was searchin'
For someone to love me right
Hear me when I cry
Keep me late at night
Jesus came even in my misery
Wipe the tears from my eyes
This is what He said

CHORUS
Whatcha' lookin' 4
I'm the One you're lookin' 4
What you're searchin' 4
You don't have to search no further
Give you peace and joy
Fill your life with happiness
Don't you look no more
'Cause I'm the One you're lookin' 4

L-O-V-E love never meant that much to me
'Til I saw your face
I felt amazing grace
But in the midnight hour
When I held my pillow tight
He wiped the tears so I could see
This is what He said

REPEAT CHORUS

I never knew love could be so sweet
The joy You give to me
Peace and harmony
I love You so
More than you'll ever know
What is this that I found, that
Never, never lets me down

REPEAT CHORUS

What you want
I've got it
What you need, I'm the One you're lookin' 4
It's yours

. . .


Melodies from heaven
Rain down on me
Rain down on me

Take me in Your arms and hold me close
Rain down on me, rain down on me

Fill me with Your precious Holy Ghost
Rain down on me, rain down on me

(Repeat)

(Tenors) Rain
(Sopranos) Rain down on me
(Altos) Let let let let let it fall on me

(Repeat 4 times before key changes)

Melodies from heaven....

. . .


Tomorrow is a brand new day
All my sins have been washed away
My hands look new, my life is free
My heart is pure, I've been redeemed

I've seen His face, touched His hands
Finally now, I understand
Why He saved a wretch, a wretch like me
And by His blood I've been redeemed

(Chorus)

We ran the race, we kept the fight
We shed our blood for what was right
We carried our cross through storm and rain
Because of Christ now we can say

We are conquerors, conquerors
We are conquerors, conquerors

I've seen His face
I've touched His hands
Finally now I understand
Why He saved a wretch
Saved a wretch like you and me
And by His blood I've been redeemed

(Repeat Chorus - Lead ad-libs)

(bridge)
No matter what we go through
We are conquerors
Lord, I'm gonna give my problems to You
We are conquerors

(Repeat Chorus - Lead continues to adlib)

(vamp)
We are conquerors
Conquerors

More than conquerors, more than conquerors
More than conquerors (Repeat)

. . .


Don't take your joy away
Don't take your joy away
I know that I have done wrong
But I'm asking You as I sing this song
Don't take your joy away

Don't take it
I can't make it
I've tried it
I can't live without it

Restore unto me the joy of my salvation
Make me Jesus a new creation
Shake me and make me
Hold me and mold me
Choose me and use me
Chastise me
Revive me

. . .

When I Think About Jesus

[No lyrics]

Words & Music by Kirk Franklin

Summertime has come and gone
The leaves are slowly falling
The other day my mother heard
The voice of Jesus calling
He said, “Come on with Me my child
I'll take away your strife”
Mama went to sleep on this side
And woke up in paradise

CHORUS
Oh, but how I miss her so
More than you'll ever know
How I miss her so
More than you'll ever know
How I miss her so
More than you'll ever know

When I was a little boy
Mama rocked me in her arms
She protected me from danger
She kept me safe and warm
But mama is not here now
And I'm standing by myself
But as long as I've got Jesus
I don't need nobody else

REPEAT CHORUS

I miss her

. . .


(Intro)

Did He pay it, did He pay it?
Yes He did! (Repeat)

(Chorus)

Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe
Sin had left a crimson stain
He washed them (3x)
White as snow

(Vamp -- Lead & Choir)

He washed them
Whiter than snow
(Repeat 3 times before key changes)

Wash (Repeat -- Sopranos, Altos, Tenors alternate)

He washed them
Whiter than snow (3x)

Wash (Repeat)

He washed them
Whiter than snow (3x)

He washed them
White as snow (3x)

(Repeat chorus)

. . .


(Chorus)

I love You, Jesus
I love You, Jesus
You are so worthy, worthy
Love You, love You
Jesus

(Leads repeat chorus)

(Choir sings chorus, Lead ad-libs)

(3rd lead sings)
I love You, Jesus
I love You, Jesus
You are so worthy, worthy
Love You, love You
Jesus

(Choir repeats chorus)

You inhabit the praise of Your people
Who kneel down humble before You
To worship and adore You
You are so worthy, worthy
Love You, love You Jesus
(repeat)

(Vamp)

Love You, love You
We love You

You are so worthy, worthy
Love You, love You
Jesus

. . .


Fill me with a joy so new
So I can show my love for You
This joy I have is real and true
For all my sins are washed away
Yes all my sins are washed away

The pain I felt so deep inside
The tears I could no longer hide
There's joy now 'cause You are by my side
Yes all my sins are washed away
Yes all my sins are washed away

(Choir)
Fill me with a joy so new
So I can show my love for You
This love I have is real and true
For all my sins are washed away
Yes all my sins are washed away

The pain I felt so deep inside
The tears I could no longer hide
There's joy now 'cause You are by my side
For all my sins are washed away
Yes all my sins are washed away
(Choir repeats, leads ad-lib)

(Vamp)

Washed away, gone astray

For all my sins are washed away
Yes all my sins are washed away

Oh~~~ (Tenors)
Oh Oh Oh (Sopranos, Altos alternate)

For all my sins are washed away
Yes all my sins are washed away

Where the Spirit of the Lord is
There is liberty
Where the Spirit of the Lord is
The captives are set free
The wounded are made whole

I'll find rest for my soul
Where the Spirit is
There is liberty

Where the Spirit is
Where the Spirit is
Where the Spirit is
There is liberty

Where the Spirit of the Lord is
There is liberty
Where the Spirit of the Lord is
The captives are set free
The wounded are made whole
There is rest for your soul
Where the Spirit is
There is liberty

Where the Spirit is
There is healing
Where the Spirit is
There is deliverance
Where the Spirit is
There is joy

Where the spirit is
There is liberty

. . .


Oh~~~ see if You are real

(Lead)
Let me touch You and see if You are real
Even though, I know my heart Your hands can heal
But sometimes I get discouraged
And I need Your strength and shield, Jesus
Let me touch You and see if You are real

Sometimes to me You seem so far away
And I wonder how to make through the day
But if I can touch the hem of Your garment
Your power, I know, You can heal, Jesus
Let me touch You and see if You are real

When I'm down
Let me touch You
When I'm lonely
Let me touch You
When I'm discouraged
Let me touch You
Like I never have before
Lord, I need You more and more, Jesus
Let me touch You and see if You are real

Oh~~~ see if You are real

Jesus, let me touch and see if You are real
are real.....are real

When I'm down
Let me touch You
When I'm lonely
Let me touch You
When I'm discouraged
Let me touch You
Like I never have before
Lord, I need You more and more, Jesus
Let me touch You and see if You are real

Oh~~~ see if You are real (4x)

. . .


Words & Music by Kirk Franklin, Buster & Shavoni

Sometimes this rocky road
Is filled with aches and pain
Sometimes you win
Sometimes you lose
But in Christ you'll always gain
They just don't understand
How Your love brought me out
That's why I can stand and testify
Say without a doubt

CHORUS
Anything for You
Jesus, I'll do anything
Anything for You
I'll do anything for You
For You, anything for You
Anything for You, for You
Anything

I give my broken heart
So that You can make it whole
I'll never go astray
This is joy that fills my soul

I'll tell the dying world
How Your love has set me free
I really love You Lord
Because You first loved me

REPEAT CHORUS

Climb the highest mountain
I'll swim the deepest sea
Conquer new horizons
Because You first loved me
Because You first loved me

I'll do anything

. . .


I was searchin'
For someone to love me right
Hear me when I cry
Keep me late at night
Jesus came even in my misery
Wiped the tears from my eyes
This is what He said

(Chorus)
Whatcha lookin' 4
I'm the One you're lookin' 4
Whatcha searchin' 4
You don't have to search no more
Give you peace and joy
Fill your life with happiness
Don't you look no more
'Cause I'm the One you're lookin' 4

L-O-V-E love never meant that much to me
'Til I saw Your face
I felt your amazing grace
But in the midnight hour
When I held my pillow tight

What you need, I'm the One you're lookin' 4

It's yours

I'm the One you're lookin' 4
