Lyrics

Stand Up For Jesus

Written By: Aaron Austin

STAND UP FOR JESUS

PEOPLE GET READY

THAT DAY IS AT HAND

WE ARE GOING TO START A REVOLUTION

ACROSS THE LAND

DON’T BE DISMAYED

GET RIGHT, AND JOIN THE FIGHT

THE BATTLE IS NOT OURS

IT’S THE LORD’S

(CHORUS)

(BRIDGE) THE SIGNS ARE ALL OVER

WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS

PREPARE FOR HIS COMING

YOU BETTER BEHAVE

(CHORUS)

Thank You

Written By: Aaron Austin

THANK YOU

I WOKE UP THIS MORNING
AND I STARTED TO PRAY
THANK YOU LORD, FOR ANOTHER DAY
I WANT TO THANK YOU
FOR ALL THAT YOU’VE DONE
AND I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR ONLY SON
(BRIDGE)
ALL MY LIFE YOU HAVE CARRIED ME THRU
IF IT WASN’T FOR YOUR MERCY
WHAT WOULD I DO

{SECOND VERSE}
I GIVE YOU THE GLORY
I GIVE YOU THE PRAISE
WITHOUT YOU, I’M TRAPPED IN A MAZE
FOR ALL THAT YOU’RE DONE
AND ALL THAT YOU DO
I WANT TO SAY
THANK YOU
(REPRISE SECOND VERSE)
I GIVE YOU THE GLORY
I GIVE YOU THE PRAISE
WITHOUT YOU, I’D LIVE IN A DAZE
FOR ALL THAT YOU’VE DONE
AND ALL THAT YOU DO
I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

(CHORUS) I WANT TO THANK YOU
(ENDING) FOR ALL THAT YOU’VE DONE
AND ALL THAT YOU DO
I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

You Must Be Baptized

Written By: Aaron Austin

YOU MUST BE BAPTIZED

IN NOAH’S TIME MEN WERE BOUND IN CHAINS OF SIN, EVIL ALL AROUND.
GOD REPENTED HE HAD EVER MADE MAN.
HE DECIDED TO DESTROY EVERY CREATURE IN THE LAND.
IT RAINED FOR FORTY DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS
THE SUN AND THE MOON DIDN’T GIVE THERE LIGHT.
EIGHT SOULS WERE SAVED BY WATER THAT DAY.
ALL THE SIN WAS WASHED AWAY
YOU MUST BE BAPTIZED (CHORUS)

GOD LED MOSES TO THE RED SEA
HE ASKED GOD, IS THIS WERE WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE?
THE ISRAELITES CRIED, WE ARE AS GOOD AS DEAD
BUT GOD TOLD MOSES TO GO STRAIGHT AHEAD
ALL GOD’S CHILDREN WERE SAVED BY WATER THAT DAY
ALL THE SIN WAS WASHED AWAY
YOU MUST BE BAPTIZED (CHORUS)

JUST LIKE IN THE DAYS OF NOAH, SHALL IT BE IN THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN
MEN WILL BE BOUND IN SIN, EVIL THROUGH-OUT THE LAND
YOU SEE, WATER WILL CLEAN THE BODY FROM HEAD TO TOE
BUT WHEN YOU ADD THE NAME OF JESUS//////////
IT WILL CLEANSE YOUR SOUL
