Lyrics

Man In The Crowd

Written By: Jesse Larue Jones

MAN IN THE CROWD
WRITTEN BY: JESSE JONES AND LYNN JORDAN

MY NAME IS NOT IMPORTANT
MY FACE MAY NOT BE KNOWN
BUT I WAS ON THAT MOUNTAIN
WHERE JESUS DIED ALONE
MY VOICE WAS SURELY HEARD
WHEN THE PEOPLE SHOUTED OUT
SO LET ME TELL MY STORY
OF THE MAN IN THE CROWD

CHOURS:
I’M THE MAN IN THE CROWD
ASHAMED OF WHAT I’VE DONE
NOT KNOWING TILL THAT MONMENT
THAT JESUS WAS GOD’S SON
I’M GUILTY OF HIS DEATH
OF THIS I AM NOT PROUD
HE DIED THERE FOR MY SINS
I’M THE MAN IN THE CROWD

WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE?
IF YOU’D BEEN IN MY SHOES
I JOINED IN ON THE MOCKING
THE TORMENT AND ABUSE
YET HE FORGAVE MY SINS
AND HE WILL YOURS RIGHT NOW
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ASK
LIKE THE MAN IN THE CROWD

Death Is A Door

Written By: David Mayfield Cooper

DEATH IS A DOOR
WRITTEN BY: DAVID M. COOPER AND LYNN JORDAN

WORDS CAN’T EXPLAIN
NO PAIN CAN COMPARE
REJOICE WHEN LIFE’S BATTLE IS WON
YOUR HEARTACHE IS REAL
I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL
ETERNAL LIFE HAS BEGUN

CHORUS:
DEATH IS A DOOR
ALL MORTALS PASS THROUGH
AS YOU ENTER THE PORTAL
IMAGINE THE VIEW
THERE’S BEAUTIFUL MANSIONS
AND STREETS PAVED WITH GOLD
HEAVEN’S A CITY
PREPARED FOR THE SOUL

LIVIN’ IN HEAVEN
MEANS DYING ON EARTH
ON EARTH THERE’S BURDENS TO BARE
YOUR LIFE’S FILLED WITH SORROW
DON’T COUNT ON TOMORROW
NOW’S THE TIME TO PREPARE

On the Other Side

Written By: David Mayfield Cooper

ON THE OTHERSIDE
WRITTEN BY: DAVID M. COOPER

LIFE IS LIKE A MIST
WE’RE HERE BUT SOON WE’RE GONE
FLESH RETURNS TO DUST
BUT THE SOUL LIVES ON
THIS MORTAL HOUSE OF CLAY
I’M GONNA LEAVE BEHIND
I WON’T NEED IT THERE
ON THE OTHERSIDE

CHORUS:
ON THE OTHERSIDE
MY SAVIOR WAITS FOR ME
JORDAN’S CHILLY TIDE
SPLASHES ROUND MY FEET
I HAVE NO FEAR OF DEATH
I LONG FOR HEAVEN’S REST
THERE’S ONLY HAPPINESS
ON THE OTHERSIDE

WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES
AND DRAW LIFE’S FINAL BREATH
DON’T WASTE YOUR TEARS ON ME
FOR I’LL BE AT REST
WHERE THERE’S NO MORE PAIN
NO TEARS TO DIM THE EYES
I’M GONNA LIVE AGAIN
ON THE OTHERSIDE

CHORUS:
ON THE OTHERSIDE
MY SAVIOR WAITS FOR ME
JORDAN’S CHILLY TIDE
SPLASHES ROUND MY FEET
I HAVE NO FEAR OF DEATH
I LONG FOR HEAVEN’S REST
THERE’S ONLY HAPPINESS
ON THE OTHERSIDE

Rockin' Chairs In Heaven

Written By: David Mayfield Cooper

ROCKIN’ CHAIRS IN HEAVEN
WRITTEN BY: DAVID M. COOPER

ANGELS
ARE STANDIN’
BY THE RIVER
SEARCHIN’
OLE JORDAN’S
OTHERSIDE
TO RESCUE
THE BABIES
WHO ARE CROSSIN’
FORDIN’
OLE JORDAN’S
SWELLIN’ TIDE

CHORUS:
GOD MUST HAVE
A LOT OF ROCKIN’
CHAIRS IN HEAVEN
AND SPECIAL ANGELS
TO SING
A LULLABY
GOD MUST HAVE
A LOT OF ROCKIN’
CHAIRS IN HEAVEN
WHERE ANGELS
ROCK THE BABIES
WHEN THEY CRY

BABIES
THAT NEVER
KNEW THEIR
MOTHER
SOMEONE
JUST TO HOLD
THEM IN HER ARMS
AND SING
A LULLABY
LIKE MOMMIES
USED TO
OR HAVE A DADDY
TO KEEP
THEM SAFE FROM HARM

Waisten' The Oil

Written By: David Mayfield Cooper

WASTEN’ THE OIL
WRITTEN BY: DAVID M. COOPER AND LYNN JORDAN

HUMBLED AND BROKEN
MARY KNELT
AT THE FEET OF JESUS
WASHING HIS FEET
WITH TEARS
THAT FELL FROM HER EYES
BREAKIN’ A BOX
OF OINTMENT
THAT WAS SO PRECIOUS
AS SHE POURED THE OIL
MARY HEARD
SOME PEOPLE REPLY

CHORUS:
SHE’S WASTEN’ THE OIL
THE OINTMENT
THAT WAS SO PRECIOUS
IT SHOULD’VE BEEN SOLD
AND THE MONEY
GAVE TO THE POOR
THIS ALABASTER BOX
OF OINTMENT
MARY HAD BROKEN
OIL THAT ANOINTED
THE BODY
OF JESUS MY LORD

WHY TROUBLE THIS WOMAN
THE PEOPLE
HEARD JESUS REPLY
SHE WILL BE KNOWN
WHEREVER
THIS GOSPEL IS PREACHED
SHE HAS COME TO ANOINT
MY BODY
THAT IS TO BE BURIED
LEAVE HER ALONE
MARY’S DONE
THIS ANOINTING FOR ME
