Track Name: All of All
She was my first born, the oldest of three
I would learn a lot from her, even as a baby.
The years they seemed to go by, they flew by way too fast
If I could just get back one day, I would make it last

Back when she was younger, maybe four or five
I asked her this question, and her answer made me smile
Do you love me only little, do you love me only all
This is what she answered, I love you all of all

She texted me from math class, when she was in high school
Through an open window, I delivered Chinese food
If you ask me why I did that, I’ll just smile and laugh
I didn’t have a reason, I was just her dad

Often times at bed time, I’d play a song for her
Then I’d say goodnight and, I’d whisper in her ear
Do you love me only little, do you love me only all
She would whisper back to me, I love you all of all

BRIDGE Only little, only all x 2

She is all grown up now, and she’s making her own way
Someday she’ll have her own kid, and I’m pretty sure she’ll say
Do you love me only little, do you love me only all
Mom you know the answer, I love you all of all

Only little, only all (repeats)
All of all (repeats)
Track Name: Home
This is not my home
And I am not my own
Time is drawing near
When I will be leaving here

I can’t wait to see
The home that he’s made for me
There will be no fear
No more death and no more tears

Streets that are made of gold
No one is ever old
I know that’s where I want to be
And I sent my RSVP


I tried and I cannot see
Why so many don’t believe
He was very clear
But many just don’t want to hear

But If you want to go
You need to let Him know
If I were you I would not wait
Tomorrow it may be too late

This is not a mystery
The Son of God will set you free
Don’t fall asleep today
Or eternity might fly away


I have settled up with Him
And He took away my sin

I am not my own
It won’t be long and I’ll be home

I am not my own
It won’t be long and I’ll be home

I am not my own
It won’t be long and I’ll be home

I am not my own
It won’t be long and I’ll be home


It won’t be long and I’ll be home

It won’t be long and I’ll be home

It won’t be long and I’ll be home

It won’t be long and I’ll be home

I am going home

I am going home

I am going home

I am going home
Track Name: Howard K
I was born back in ‘61
You were my father, I was your son
We spent our entire lives apart
It’s still a nagging feeling in my heart

Over the course of my life I would think of you
And I’m willing to bet that you thought of me, too
A few years back I called to just say hi
And you told me – hey, this is not a good time


You came to my house one day
And I really didn’t know just what to say
We sat across the table eye to eye
I think we said two words and one of them was “hi”

You took a wrong turn many years ago
The guilt was too much, you couldn’t let it go
Did you ever wonder what might have been
If you could start all over again

My life took a very different turn
There’s a lot of things that I have learned
You can choose to forgive and choose to forget
And go and live your life with no regrets


Why things turn out a certain way
No one knows and who can say
Some things just aren’t meant to be
As it turns out now, it’s ok with me.

BRIDGE

We don’t get to choose when we’re born or when we die
But one thing we can never do is say no to the gift of God…
Eternal Life


I got a call you were fading fast
I went to visit you, it would be my last
You squeezed my hand but you couldn’t speak
There was no one there except my sister and me
Your eyes they spoke what your voice couldn’t say
I said me and you, we’re ok
The spirit of God was there that day
Doing His work on Howard K


I went back home after I left that day
There was so many things that I wanted to say
So I wrote it all down and told him what he should do
And said Jesus is right there waiting for you
I folded my letter and began to pray
And I mailed it out that very same day

I called the nurses station and said to expect
A letter from me that I sent ‘em FEDEX
They told me they’d read my letter to him
The promise of God would free him from sin
One week later my sister called
And she told me that you were gone
I don’t have to think what might have been
Cause now I know, I will see you again



What do you say… Howard K

What do you say… Howard K

What do you say… Howard K

What do you say… Howard K
Track Name: One Fine Son
I want to tell you a story, about a kid I know
You’d know his name if I told you.
And this is how the story goes
He was born in the month of May; back in ’91
He grew up to be a musician.
But he’s a lot more than that to me; you see… he’s one fine son

CHORUS:

He’s got a brand new song, I wanna sing along
Every chance I get, I say how proud I am


He goes to bed at midnight, with a new song in his heart
When he wakes up in the morning, he’s figured out all of the parts
He goes into the studio. Sometimes takes no more than a day
When he’s finished the mix down He calls me in and then sits down
And says hey dad… Just press play

CHORUS:

He’s got a brand new song, one I can sing along
Every chance I get, Tell everyone how proud I am


BRIDGE

I won’t be surprised when I hear him on the radio or on TV
Or read about him someday, in a full feature music magazine


CHORUS:

He’s got a brand new song (one fine son);
I’d like to sing along (one fine son)
Every chance I get (one fine son)
Tell everyone how proud I am -

Repeat



END

It’s not the end of the story; in fact it’s only just the start
Wherever his future will take him, to me he’ll forever be… One fine son
Track Name: Sing
She was born in December, in 1993 It was a special day,
because…she was born on Christmas Eve

Before too long she was jumpin’ around, clapping her hands and singing her songs

She sang with all her heart and might; her little hands wrapped the microphone tight

As she got older the songs would change It never mattered the vocal range

It seemed almost every day, when she was home her mom would say…

SING, SING, SING (X2)

I entered her in a talent show, she sang and played, I got the video
Before she played she told everyone, this is dedicated to my dad… and she won

Never seemed scared in front of a crowd. And every time she made me proud

Lots of folks would come up to me, and say that kid is amazing…

SING, SING, SING (X2)

I called her up one day, said I had a song to play
It’s a song you’ve never heard, its ok dad, just say the word and I’ll sing

She listened twice and I hit record, she sang it just right, word for word
Everyone who hears that song says she sings like an angel….

SING, SING, SING (X2)

It’s a strange feeling when they leave the nest; you did everything you could, did you do your best? But I know now she’ll be just fine, God has shown me many times

She’s beautiful and grown up now, and it’s so amazing how… I can close my eyes and see, and my heart can hear her voice, when she sings, when she sings…


SING, SING, SING (repeat)

SING IT OUT SING IT LOUD SING IT PROUD (Repeat)
Track Name: Thankful
Lord I am thankful for you, thankful for all that you do
Thankful that I am a part of your plan,
thankful that I am resting in the palm of your hand

thankful that you’ve taken me inThankful for forgiving my sin,
Thankful for my life, my kids and my wife, beginning with you, everyday is new


LORD I AM THANKFUL FOR YOU X 2


Thankful for the gift of a song, Some of them are short, some are long
Some of them don’t rhyme, and its different every time
Some are born of pain, in sunshine, and rain


LORD I AM THANKFUL FOR YOU X 2


Thankful for my house and my home, where I can boldly approach your throne Where I can pray away the storms of the day, where I can raise my voice unto you and say


LORD I AM THANKFUL FOR YOU X 2


I couldn’t make it through without you, I wouldn’t even know what to do

I wouldn’t dare to breathe, I wouldn’t dare to dream, I wouldn’t even

Think I could close my eyes and see

Everything I have, everything I am,

I’m thankful that I’m resting in the Palm of your hand
Track Name: This is My America
I was born in the USA
Back then things seemed to be ok
But now so many things have changed
Almost like its pre arranged

America’s train is off the track
My country’s gone and I want it back
All the politicians in DC
Harassing and abusing you and me

It may already be too late
I think we’re living in a police state
Better be careful of what you say
They’re listening to you at the NSA

Chorus

You used to be so strong and free
Now you’re blind and cannot see
This is my America
Used to be so proud of ya
This is my America
How could you fall so far



Nine guys in robes hold a vote and say
Let’s take away they’re right to pray
They turn around and then decide
It’s ok to take the life of your unborn child

In your face debauchery,
Violence and pornography
They don’t teach our kids the golden rule
But they might get shot in a public school

I always believed my whole life
That marriage is between a man and wife
If we turn our back on morality
It’s game, set, match - why can’t you see?

Chorus

You used to be so strong and free
Now you’re blind and cannot see
This is my America
Used to be so proud of ya
This is my America
How could you fall so far




Bridge

Black is white, left is right, day is night, wrong is right.
Up is down, the world goes round. The ending comes
with a deafening sound

There is time for us I say, just humble ourselves and pray.
And turn from our evil ways

God will forgive and heal our land. What part don’t you understand?

This is my America
Used to be so proud of ya
This is my America
How could you fall so far

This is my America
Used to be so proud of ya
This is my America
How could you fall so far
Track Name: You Are Good
Trust in your unfailing love

Rejoice in Your salvation

Sing unto You Lord

For You are good to me (Repeats Throughout)


Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah (Repeats Throughout)
