Lyrics, continued:

12. Walk With Jesus

To get to heaven you gotta go straight

Walk on the path behind Jesus

Next to this road there are detours and dangers

So don’t turn to the right or the left

/ Walk...with Jesus. /

Get down off your throne

Pass Pride Street

You’ll have to cross through the fountain

A door will be in front of you

Enter the church, and you’ll not be far from heaven as you

/ Walk...with Jesus. /

13. Better than Candy (Hoedown version)

Birthday parties, flying a kite

Playing with dogs, staying up late at night

Ice cream and chocolate, donuts and sweets

These are a few of my favorite treats

But I love you, Jesus, more than these things

You’re better than candy; you’re more fun than swings

Everything else lasts only a while

But you last forever; you make me smile

14. A to Z (see Revelation 1:11-17)

Hey, B., see that Man? Oh, gee!

He is Jesus, such a sight to see

Curious as it may be

He loves you, and he loves me

Now I know my A to Z

Next time won’t you sing with me

Hey, B., see that Man? Oh, gee!

He is Jesus, such a sight to see

Curious as it may be

He loves you, and he loves me

Now we know our A to Z

We’re as happy as can be

We’re as happy as can be

We know our A to Z!

15. Target: Jesus

The Father is the Archer

The Spirit is the Bow

The Son is the Target

You’re the arrow

The Father is the Archer

The Spirit is the Bow

The Son is the Target

You’re the arrow

You’re the arrow

Place yourself in the hand of the Archer

Brace yourself for a swift departure

He wastes no time pointing you

Toward the image of his Son (3x)

16. Guess What

Guess what! There’s someone who loves you

Guess who! He loves me too

Guess what! There’s someone who died for you

Guess who! He lived as a Jew

Guess what! Guess who!

Guess what! Guess who!

Guess what!

Can you guess who?

I’ll give you a clue

Guess what? There’s someone who’s watching

Guess who? He’s got you in view

Guess what! There’s one who can change you

Guess who! He’ll make you brand new

Guess what! Guess who!

Guess what! Guess who!

Guess what!

Can you guess who?

I’ll give you a clue

Guess what! Not all go to heaven

Guess who! Only a few

Guess what! There’s one who can take you

Guess who! I think you know who

Guess what! Guess who!

Guess what! Guess who!

Guess what!

Can you guess who?

I gave you a clue

It’s Jesus! You guessed it right

Christ Jesus! He’s heaven’s light

Yes, Jesus! You’re in his sight

I’m sure you knew it all along (3x)

17. Obviously! (with motions)

Some things go without saying (cover mouth)

Some things are open and shut (arms out; then a clap)

Some things are staring you right in the face (exaggerated staring at someone)

Some things are simply clear-cut (one hand axes the palm of the other hand)

Plain as day (hand on forehead, shielding eyes from the sun)

Clear as a bell (hold up imaginary bell and strike it twice)

Standing out like a sore thumb; ouch! (holding thumb; face grimaces)

Right in view; in front of you (pointing at the floor)

As plain as the nose on my face (touch nose)

Some things go without saying (cover mouth)

Some things are open and shut (arms out; then a clap)

Some things are staring you right in the face (exaggerated staring at someone)

Some things are simply clear-cut (one hand axes the palm of the other hand)

God’s love (arms form X across chest)

Your need, indeed (point at someone)

The fact that we’re all gonna die someday (laying head on hands on shoulder)

Because of sin (fingers do the shame-shame sign)

We can’t get in (shake finger and head)

To heaven (point up)

But Christ (touch each wrist)

Is the way (use both index fingers to point upward)

Some things go without saying (cover mouth)

Some things are open and shut (arms out; then a clap)

Some things are staring you right in the face (exaggerated staring at someone)

Some things are simply clear-cut (one hand axes the palm of the other hand)

Some things are simply clear-cut (one hand axes the palm of the other hand)

Some things are simply clear-cut (one hand axes the palm of the other hand)

18. I Am With You (Genesis 28:15)

I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go

I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go

You are with me and will watch over me wherever I go

You are with me and will watch over me wherever I go

God is with me and will watch over me wherever I go

God is with me and will watch over me wherever I go

God is with you and will watch over you wherever you go

God is with you and will watch over you wherever you go

19. I Am Yours

Jesus, I am yours

Jesus, I am yours

Cleanse me so that you can live inside of me

Do all you need to do so I can truly be forever only yours

20. PJ Prayer

I feel so comfy in my pajamas

Cuddling with my mommy, daddy, gramps or grandma

I like feeling cozy, warm and safe and snuggly

Thank you, God, for these things

I feel so comfy in my pajamas

Cuddling with my mommy, daddy, gramps or grandma

I like feeling cozy, warm and safe and snuggly

Thank you, God, for these things

[End: ...you give me, a home and family; my home and family]

Some kids are sleeping tonight out in the streets alone

They have no bed, no pajamas, no parents, and no home

God, please protect and help them

Show them that you are there

Provide them a home and family

Food and clothes to wear

21. For You / Por ti

Jesus died for you

Jesus died for me

Jesus died

Jesus died

He paid our penalty

Jesús murió por ti

Jesús murió por mí

Jesús murió

Jesús murió

Nuestro castigo pagó

Jesus is alive

Jesus is alive

He rose again from the grave

Now He’s at the Father’s side

Jesús resucitó

Jesús resucitó

Resucitó

Resucitó

Luego al cielo volvió

Jesus will return

Jesus will return

We wait for Him expectantly

We’ll live with Him eternally

Jesús regresará

Jesús regresará

Regresará

Regresará

Al cielo nos llevará

22. Cada día

Domingo, lunes, martes, miércoles, jueves, viernes, sábado

Cada día es bueno para alabar al Señor

Domingo, lunes, martes, miércoles, jueves, viernes, sábado

Cada día es bueno para leer la palabra

Domingo, lunes, martes, miércoles, jueves, viernes, sábado

Cada día es bueno para servir al Señor

23. Yo estoy contigo

Yo estoy contigo, voy a cuidarte por dondequiera que vayas

Yo estoy contigo, voy a cuidarte por dondequiera que vayas

Tú estás conmigo, vas a cuidarme por dondequiera que vaya

Tú estás conmigo, vas a cuidarme por dondequiera que vaya

Dios está conmigo, va a cuidarme por dondequiera que vaya

Dios está conmigo, va a cuidarme por dondequiera que vaya

Dios está contigo, va a cuidarte por dondequiera que vayas

Dios está contigo, va a cuidarte por dondequiera que vayas

24. ¡Chócale!

Cristiano eres tú

Cristiano soy yo también

¡Chócale! ¡Chócale! ¡Chócale!

El cielo es tu destino

Al cielo voy yo también

¡Chócale! ¡Chócale! ¡Chócale!

Pecadores fuimos tú y yo

A los dos Jesús salvó

E iguales somos a los ojos del Señor

Pecadores fuimos tú y yo

A los dos Jesús salvó

E iguales somos a los ojos del Señor

¡Chócale!

25. Camina con Cristo

Para llegar al cielo hay que seguir derecho

Sigue por el camino, detrás de Jesucristo

Al lado de este camino hay desvíos y peligros

No debes doblar a la derecha ni tampoco a la izquierda

Camina... con Cristo

Camina... con Jesucristo

Bájate de tu trono; pasa la Calle del Orgullo

Hay que cruzar por la fuente; una puerta estará enfrente

Al entrar a la iglesia ya te queda cerca

No estás lejos del cielo mientras caminas con Cristo

Camina... con Cristo

Camina... con Jesucristo.

26. Te amo, Jesús

Celebrar mi cumpleaños

Bañarme en el mar

Jugar con mis amigos

Pintar y dibujar

Helados, pasteles, chocolate y maní

Estas son las cosas que me gustan a mí

Pero más aun que a éstas te amo, Jesús

Más que a los columpios, el circo, los dulces

Estos duran sólo un rato, no más

Pero tú, para siempre, me alegrarás

27. Oración en piyama

En mi piyama siento comodita

Con Mamá, Papá, Abuelo o Abuelita

Abrazada, protegida, amada y querida

Por estas cosas, gracias Dios

En mi piyama siento comodita

Con Mamá, Papá, Abuelo o Abuelita

Abrazada, protegida, amada y querida

Por estas cosas, gracias Dios

[Fin: ...me has dado cama, hogar y familia; cama, hogar y familia]

Esta noche algunos niños están durmiendo afuera, solos

Ellos no tienen piyama, padres, casa ni cama

Ayúdales, Dios, por favor

Muéstrales tu presencia

Dales ropa, comida, cama, hogar y familia

Joe,

I really like this lolli image and think it's better than the one with the little kid with the upturned nose. David said you guys photo-shopped it; good stuff and God bless. I'd like to buy a CD when you get them in. Bless you guys! Chris Reno
