A Few Good Lyrics

Hello. My mum has had this cd since we were in America called Songs by Rich Mullins. And he juts has good lyrics. Here's a selection:

Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You
Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You
I will seek You in the morning
And I will learn to walk in Your ways
And step by step You'll lead me
And I will follow You all of my days

And I believe what I believe is what makes me what I am
I did not make it, no it is making me
It is the very truth of God and not the invention of any man
[Chorus of a song in which he pretty much sings the creed]

So if I stand let me stand on the promise
That you will pull me through
And if I can't, let me fall on the grace
That first brought me to You
And if I sing let me sing for the joy
That has born in me these songs
And if I weep let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home

[This is an awesome a capella song]
It's about as useless as a screen door on a submarine
Faith without works baby
It just ain't happenin'
One is your left hand, one is your right
It'll take two strong arms to hold on tight
Some folks cut off their nose just to spite their face
I think you need some works to show for your alleged faith

Well there's a difference you know
'tween having faith and playing make believe
One will make you grow the other one just make you sleep
Talk about it
But I really think you oughtta take a leap off of the ship
Before you claim to walk on water
Faith without works is like a song you can't sing
It's about as useless as a screen door on a submarine

There you go. Enjoy your day. And remember: Some people always have their nose in a book, but this tends to make reading difficult

ep i think rich mullins wrote all his own songs...thrid day stealing people's writing...
actually, depending on when the album was made (thrid day offerings two) it could be a sort of....tribute to him because mullins died in the 90s in a car crash (?) i think. or plane. Not sure.
