old time preachin

OLD TIME PREACHIN’

Buddy Durrett/Fawn Jacobs BMI C 2012


1-I REMEMBER YEARS AGO- HOW THE SPIRIT FELL

PREACHERS HAD THE FEAR OF GOD- AND YOU COULD SURLY TELL

THEY LIVED A LIFE BEYOND REPROACH- SO (or and) EVERYONE COULD SEE

WHEN THEY’D PREACH CONVICTION FELL-AND SET THE SINNER FREE

2-WE NEED TO HEAR PREACHERS PREACH- LIKE THEY DID BACK THEN

THOSE WHO STAND IN THE GAP- AND PREACH AGAINST ALL SIN

WHO TELL THEIR CONGREGATION- THAT THEY’LL NOT COMPROMISE

THEY'D RATHER PLEASE THE LORD- THAN BE SOMETHING IN THEIR EYES

CHORUS

LETS GET BACK TO OLE TIME PREACHIN- WHERE THE FIRE FELL

BACK TO BOLDLY PREACHIN- SINNERS OUT OF HELL

CONVICTING DRUNKS AND HARLOTS- TO TURN THEIR LIVES AROUND

PRAYIN, AND WAITIN’ UPON (on) THE LORD- TILL HE SENDS POWER DOWN!

BRIDGE – (SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT MELODY- This is a bridge not another verse)

WE’RE STILL CALLED TO PLANT AND WATER- THOSE SEEDS OF GOSPEL TRUTH

NOT A WATERED DOWN GOSPEL- BUT POWER THAT BREAKS THRU

GOD WILL GIVE THE INCREASE- A HARVEST OF SOULS

AS WE STAND AND PROCLAIM WHAT WE KNOW!

CHORUS REPEAT

ain't nothin

AIN’T NOTHING LIKE LOVIN AND LIVIN FOR THE LORD -Buddy Durrett/FawnJacobs C 2012 BMI

WASN’T NOTHING BUT A SINNER ON DAMASCUS ROAD

PERSECUTING CHRISTIANS WAS THE HEART OF MY GOAL

THEN A MIGHTLY LIGHT FROM HEAVEN SHOWN DOWN ON ME

AND I GROPED AROUND IN DARKNESS BUT CHRIST DELIVERED ME

no chorus till after verse 2

HE CHANGED MY NAME TO PAUL AND HE PLACED A CALL ON ME

JESUS SAW MY ZEAL, AND HE KNEW WHAT I COULD BE

-SAID GO TO ANANIAS YOUR SIGHT WILL BE RESTORED

NOW I WALK THE CALVARY ROAD WORKING FOR MY (the) LORD!

CHORUS

THERE AINT’ NOTHING LIKE LOVIN AND LIVIN FOR THE LORD

AIN’T NOTHING LIKE SERVIN AND STANDIN ON HIS WORD

HIS POWER SUPERCEDES ANYTHING YOU'VE EVER HEARD

AIN’ NOTHING LIKE LOVIN AND LIVIN FOR THE LORD

OUR PRAISE WAS HEARD IN HEAVEN (AND) HE ROCKED THE PRISON WALLS

HE SAVED US FROM THE SEA, AND NOT A SOUL WAS LOST

SO IF YOU ARE A SINNER ON THE ROAD TO NOWHERE

JUST CALL THE NAME OF JESUS AND HE WILL MEET YOU THERE ‘(CAUSE)

BRIDGE

ONLY HE SAVE YOUR SOUL AND TURN YOUR LIFE AROUND

AND PLACE YOU IN THE LIGHT WHERE PEACE AND JOY ABOUND

gods got it

GOD’S GOT IT

Buddy Durrett /Fawn Jacobs

Are you searching for peace this world could (can) never give

With Shattered dreams- broken pieces, longing to live

Has your heart been broken - searchin' for true love

There's a strong and stable hand reaching from above

CHORUS

God’s got it- the peace your searchin’ for

God’s got it- Love laid up in store

God’s got it- life forever more

Jesus came from Heaven above

Displaying perfect love

Forgiveness grace and love

GOD’S GOT IT

Do you feel your life is vain and not worth the pain

There is Hope for you my friend -and power in one name

Leave your burden at the cross - (and) take the Saviors hand

There’s joy for the journey - leading to the promised land


Chorus

Bridge

Leavin’ doubt and fear

Breakin’ chains of despair

You’re know longer enslaved

There’s power in one name -JESUS NAME--- (JESUS NAME OPTIONAL DEPENDING IF IT FITS here)

Chorus

Tag (however)


Jesus came from Heaven above

Displaying perfect love

Forgiveness grace and love

God’s got it - God’s got it

rendered shamless by grace

Written By: fawn jacobs/buddy durrett

RENDERED SHAMELESS BY GRACE

There’s a place of compassion

of mercy and grace

A cross upon a hill, where sin is erased

Now, I’m bringing all my failures,

my guilt and my shame

I’m here once again Lord,

To lay down all my pain

Chorus

Where you render me shameless by grace

Nothing, I’ve earned Lord,

Yet, you took my place

Where the Blood still prevails

And your love- it never fails

Where you render me shameless by grace

When that ole tempter reveals

All my past mistakes

Of my wasted years, of sin and disgrace

I remind him who you are

(and) Of how YOU saved me

How my sins- they are tossed

In the depths of the sea

Chorus repeat

Bridge

From now until Glory, when I see Your face

I’ll always be mindful- of your saving grace

How each stain Is now covered- of victory o’re sin

HOW I CAN RETURN THERE- AGAIN AND AGAIIN

Chorus repeat

Tag Where the Blood- it still prevails

And your Love- it never fails

Where you render me shameless by grace

Your precious grace---
