Lyrics

THE LORD IS ON MY SIDE

Written By: James Spoon/Sally Dunn

verse
The devil climbs upon my back
And whispers in my ear
He tries to put doubt in my mind
And fill my heart with fear
He wants to keep me in the dark
So I walk in the light
With the devil on my back
I’m glad THE LORD IS ON MY SIDE

Chorus
The devil’s on my back
Tryin’ to hang on
He thinks he’s got a hold on me
But he just aint that strong
I take a step toward the cross
And he begins to slide
I’ll get the devil off my back
THE LORD IS ON MY SIDE

verse
The devil lays his weight on me
Burdens me with sin
He fights a battle for my soul
A battle he can’t win
He don’t stand a chance in hell
When those two powers collide
With the devil close at hand
Thank God THE LORD IS ON MY SIDE

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Chorus

I take a step toward the cross
And he begins to slide
I’ll get the devil off my back
THE LORD IS ON MY SIDE

HALLELUJAH HE TOUCHED ME

Written By: James Spoon/Sally Dunn

verse
Friends and family let me down
Just when I needed them most
I looked for someone to lean on
They were afraid to get close
The only one I could hold on to
Was the One I could not see
But by faith I knew He was with me
Yes by faith I knew He was with me

chorus
HALLELUJAH HE TOUCHED ME
HALLELUJAH HE TOUCHED ME
I never saw His glorious face
Or felt the cross He bore in my place
But I felt His Holy presence with me
And that warmth that comforts me
He cleansed my mind of all of my burdens
HALLELUJAH HE TOUCHED ME

verse
In my strife He sent His angels
To watch and care for me
Now I won’t trust any other
He broke the bonds and set me free
He is the one I can rely on
He gave me hope and victory
And by faith I know He is with me
Yes by faith I know He is with me

chorus repeat
HALLELUJAH HE TOUCHED ME
HALLELUJAH HE TOUCHED ME
I never saw His glorious face
Or felt the cross He bore in my place
But I felt His Holy presence with me
And that warmth that comforts me
He cleansed my mind of all of my burdens
HALLELUJAH HE TOUCHED ME

He cleansed my mind of all of my burdens
HALLELUJAH HE TOUCHED ME

BLOOD HAD TO BE SHED

Written By: James Spoon/Sally Dunn

verse
God called Abraham.
He said prepare your son
A sacrifice must be made
He’s the chosen one
And though he was willing
A ram was offered instead
By faith Isaac was saved
BLOOD HAD TO BE SHED

verse
God called to Moses
He said stretch forth your hand
A loud cry will be heard
Throughout Egypt’s land
Death angel passed over
Doors marked in red
Hebrew children were spared
BLOOD HAD TO BE SHED

Chorus
BLOOD HAD TO BE SHED
It was God’s Holy plan
For redemption to come
For salvation to stand
Sin had to be cleansed
By blood crimson red
To have mercy on all
BLOOD HAD TO BE SHED

verse
God called to Jesus
He said listen my Son
A price has to be paid
You’re the promised one
And though we were guilty
Jesus suffered and bled
By his stripes we were healed
BLOOD HAD TO BE SHED

chorus repeat

To have mercy on all
BLOOD HAD TO BE SHED

SHE'S ALL OVER YOU

Written By: James Spoon/Sally Dunn

verse
She spent the day in your embrace
Facing another night alone
It’s getting late you have to go
I wait for you at home
Lying in her cheaters bed
How to tell me thoughts
Rush through her head
This time she’s sending me a clue
To let me know SHES ALL OVER YOU

chorus
SHES ALL OVER YOU
When you get close I will see
The perfume isn’t mine
Makeup that don’t belong to me
A strand of hair on your shirt
A little lipstick smeared there too
When you come home tonight
And you try to hold me tight
I’ll know SHES ALL OVER YOU

verse
She’s played the secret lovers part
She wants to take my role
She knows you won’t stay with her
Until I’m willing to let go
You’ve lied to me for your last time
I know she’s on your body; in your mind
It’ll be so easy getting over you
Now that I know SHES ALL OVER YOU

chorus repeat

When you’re back in her arms tonight
She’ll know her plan turned out right
Now I know SHES ALL OVER YOU
