All In

by Michael Shamblin

Iíve decided, to go all in I donít want sin, inside.
Heavenly Father, show us your power As the old is crucified!

And we glorify the Lamb Every woman, every man
Who has made a choice to take a stand, is lifting up their handsÖ

No more anger, no more sour No more bitter, and no more pride
Come together, all you mountains As the church is unified!

And we glorify the Lamb Every woman, every man,
Who has made a choice to take a stand is lifting up their hands
Is lifting up their hands, as we glorify the Lamb!

And we glorify the Lamb Every woman, every man
Who has made a choice to take a stand is lifting up their hands
And we glorify the Lamb Every woman, every man,
Who has made a choice to take a stand is lifting up their hands
Is lifting up their hands, as we glorify the Lamb!

Arise and Shine

by Miley Barcus

Like a trumpet blast the flowers can't keep quiet
And for Zion's sake I won't keep it in

Cause the winter's past and there's no more cryin'
The season of singing is heard throughout the land

Oh, gotta shout, gotta sing, gotta move my dancin' feet, yeah
Oh, 'cause the trees of the field have nothin' on me

Arise and Shine for your light has come And the glory of the Lord is on you
Raise a banner for the nation God has made this proclamation

Say oh Zion, "Your Savior comes" And you are called the Holy Ones
The Redeemed and Sought After Arise and shine, again I say
Arise! Arise! Arise! Arise and shine, again I say Arise

So lift up your heads and take a look around you
See the glory of God moving through the land

For the twilight sleeps by His holy whisper
And the sunrise sings by His mighty hand

Oh, gotta shout, gotta sing, Oh, Gotta move my dancin' feet, yeah
'Cause the trees of the field got nothin' on me

Arise and Shine for your light has come And the glory of the Lord is on you
Raise a banner for the nation God has made his proclamation

Say oh Zion, "Your Savior comes" And you are called the Holy Ones
The Redeemed and Sought After Arise and shine, again I say
Arise! Arise! Arise! Arise and shine, again I say Arise

The Battle Rages On

by Julie Radebaugh & Michael Shamblin

Ok, this is it Itís your time, Itís my time
Thereís never gonna be a better time to make this happen

We keep walking around it, thinking about it,
Looking like it, talking like it, are we really living like it

Itís time that you know thereís a war
And itís raging for your soul
But thereís something you gotta know
Though the fire's hot jump in cause even if your not

The battle rages on, This is what itís all about
Donít give in, donít give up, donít give out

Itís time to take a stand
Take the higher ground
Love is the key, the victoryís been won
But the battle rages on

The battle rages on and on
And though I feel alone
I know another seed is sown

Itís true all around the town
They want to take you down
Turn you around stop your sound
Trip you up and make you frown

But donít listen to this strife disregard your life
Fight for what is right with might Ė with light

Be tight with your brothers - love one another
Though the fire is hot jump in because even if youíre not

The battle rages on, this is what itís all about
Donít give in, Donít give up, Donít give out
Itís time to take a stand
Take the higher ground

Love is the key, the victoryís been won
But the battle rages on

The battle rages on and on and on
and though I am outnumbered not alone

It's time for me to take a stand
the battle plan a battle man
I will be fighting for the land

It's time for me to take my stand
If you join me you must know
That we can win, but until then
the battle rages on and on

This is what itís all about
Donít give in, donít give up, donít give out

Itís time to take a stand
Take the higher ground

Love is the key, the victoryís been won
But the battle rages on

Chasing Stars

by Michael Shamblin

Ordinary people chasing stars, stop and wonder who they really are
But the circles keep on closing around them, They never open Why??

Fascinating fires draw them in, promises of love thrown to the wind
But the circles never open for them...

They never open, why? Do these things in life not work out the way we wanted
Ghosts of people that leave the church, weíre still haunted

So a Christian deal didnít work out, my momís practically accosted from
trinity statement, weíre still undaunted

People try to control whatís around, lookiní for a solid ground,
they change environment cause maybe that is where the Rock is found!

Frightened people in this country that are flinchiní from the slightest sound
Screaminí where can I find an up? Give me meds, Iím so down!

But changing environments not an answer, not a medicine on shelves,
But lookiní at a mirror and Us decidiní to change ourselves!

Lookiní for a Heaven cause I can no longer afford this hell.
I canít move a mountain! Lord! Help!... My life it pales,
compared to what Iím seeiní God can you make me no longer stale?

These stairs Iím walking up are slowly turning into prison rails,
Truth is hiding out there, so God can You take off these veils
help us see that weíre the ones that decide if our life it wins or fails.

Ordinary people chasing stars, stop and wonder who they really are
But the circles keep on closing around them, They never open Why??

Fascinating fires draw them in, promises of love thrown to the wind
But the circles never open for them...

They never open, No!, You canít change a person, the way they go,
but you can change one person, looking inwardly spiritually so.
When youíre lookin in the mirror glow, while youíre flyin keep that flow,
'cause every hour youíre in the air youíre fighting against the undertow!

Keep it humble keep it low, they donít want you to make it, No!
This could be the last chance Iíve got to go All In, Lord keep me from fallin'
Iím sick of stallin', tired of beatin my head against a wall and
I donít want to be caught in a vault of Sin.

No longer God Iím Faultin!, Iím switchin my ways today
'cause tomorrowís my new assault, I will Never bend to the world Again!

Iím in control of only me, my old mistakes are appallin',
so Iím lookin at my reflection See, and THATíll be my ministry!

Full of righteous, Full of Thee!, humble, ever gracious be,
changing environment inwardly, and no more pointing sinwardly.
'Cause my own attitude can be, reachin for the stratosphere,
fearfully preachin' to the person in the mirror lookin back at me...

Ordinary people chasing stars, stop and wonder who they really are,
But the circles keep on closing around them They never open Why??

Fascinating fires draw them in, promises of love thrown to the wind,
But the circles never open for them...

Iím so tired of the old day to day, and circumstances can be frustrating,
but I know I canít change anyone else... Thereís only one person I can change. Itís me.

NO MORE PROJECTING, God, This is the TIME! Lifeís not worth it any other way!

I know when I greet the brand new day, my mindsetís gonna be different, hey,
no longer pointing fingers cause THATíS no longer the Christian way!

No matter what detractors say, Iíll keep the course and fight this war
on a horse of White cause the Source said that in the end the haterís pay!

So naysayers get out my way, my own fate I wonít betray,
God has layed a blueprint out, a straight Line pointing to outer Space,
No more projecting time Iíll waste, My own demons I have to face,
Gonna have to change my ways, cause I canít rely on a faking grace!

Rightful Actions must replace, an old lifestyle, it's been awhile,
but itís putting a smile back on a spiritually morphing face,
And in the end weíll rest our case.
I know God has given a bounty in a fruitful land.
so Iím gearing up to Make That Change! and Get A Taste!

Ordinary people chasing stars, stop and wonder who they really are,
But the circles keep on closing around them, They never open Why??

Fascinating fires draw them in, promises of love thrown to the wind
But the circles never open for them...

A Glorious Day

by Julie Radebaugh

Do you realize youíre going to see him face to face.
Youíre going to tell him how you lived here in this place.

Lies, no more lies and thereíll be no fear... No more tears.

Do you realize that if youíre holy youíll be changed.
Youíll see his glory and your life will rearrange.

High, you can fly with your eyes on him Life begins.

And it will be a Glorious Day. A Glorious Day.
All the love in heavenís known when God is on His throne on a Glorious Day.

Do you realize the Lord is coming back and soon.
Fire in His eyes and with a sword He cannot lose.
Hide, you canít hide what is deep inside your heart.

So lay it all away, Itíll burn like wood and hay.
All jealousy and hate. No, none of it can stay.
And donít be afraid if your heart is pure and trueófor you.

And it will be a Glorious Day A Glorious Day.
All the love in heavenís known when God is on His throne on a Glorious Day.

Cry now, Laodicea Have mercy, Lord, on us.
Weíd cry now, if you donít see us Lord, donít let go we want to know.

And it will be a Glorious Day. A Glorious Day.
All the love in heavenís known when God is on His throne on a Glorious Day

Kingdom of Love

by Michael Shamblin

Your Kingdom of love is my delight,
first Father, then love Thy neighbor.

Here responding with my hands held high
Looking inward to get it right...

Hallelujah, I surrender, to a God most kind...
You're my guiding Connection,
my Protection...faithful Adonai... May You ever be glorified...

Let no outstanding debt remain,
except the continuing debt
to love one another

Yours is a Path that I can attain,
in time, growing by and by...

Singing hallelujah, I surrender to a God most kind...
Youíre my guiding Connection,
my Protection... faithful Adonai...may You ever be glorified...

And Iíll lift my hands to praise
your Holy Name, the Loving One
And Iíll raise my voice and proclaim to all the earth

My hopes are high because
though the night is long,
Your Love wonít be undone
Til the morning sun comes...
Til the morning Son comes...

When Christ died on the cross, He said...
ďIt is finished, I canít love you more than this..Ē

So Iíll feed His sheep cause their Master bled,
and not the Least dismiss...

Singing hallelujah, I surrender, to a God most kind...

Your loveís a mystery, electricity...
giving sight to blind...may You ever be glorified...

And I’ll lift my hands to praise

And I’ll raise my voice and proclaim to all the earth

My hopes are high because though the night is long,
Your Love wonít be undone Til the morning sun comes...

And I’ll lift my hands to praise
your Holy Name, the Loving One
And I’ll raise my voice and proclaim to all the earth

Lovely

by Michael Shamblin

Lovely, are the pure in heart, body, soul, and mind.
Lovely, rarer than diamonds, so very hard to find.

Well, don't think that there's something better.
Just love me with all of your might.
Something draws me closer, And I've got to find.

Holy, is the King of Kings, holy without blame.
Holy, Father we love you, we'll always praise your name.

Well, don't think that there's something better,
Just love me with all of your heart.
I don't want any other, Let's make a new start.

One God

by Michael Shamblin

We worship one God, one God
Don't worship the Trinity, just one God
It's not a mystery, or three heads
We worship one God, one God.

We worship one God and you'll see
that the Remnant Fellowship does not
follow the doctrine of the Trinity.

God is only one God He is not three,
Jesus didn't pray to himself when he hung on the tree.

That's false doctrine that was introduced at Nicaea
and the reason they did that was to take out God's authority.

You see if Jesus didnít submit his will to God,
then it takes away the need to obey from you and me!

So give out a shout if you all agree!
Give out a shout if you all agree!
Give out a shout if you all agree - itís a line of authority.

We worship one God, one God
Don't worship the Trinity, just one God
It's not a mystery, or three heads
We worship one God, one God.

Any church that teaches trinity is polytheistic.
That means multiple gods, that is so sadistic.

They were shooting for the mark, but I guess that they missed it.
We just wanna make sure in God's book of life we are listed.

I donít mean to be rude, don't mean to be unkind,
but this is God's holy city we are trying to find.

If it means going against the flow then we don't mind.
T he martyrs understood this and that's how they shined!

Jesus prayed to the Father he was not the same one,
finding God's will is real, it is not a game son.

Just like the early church we're trying to help the lame ones.
We give up fame and praise of man we shun.

The holy way - well the Bible states it -
those with selfish agendas have always hated it.

The divisiveness in the church well Satan creates it,
but the righteous man stands up and that's how he makes it.

So give out a shout if you all agree!
Give out a shout if you all agree!
Give out a shout if you all agree - it’s a line of authority.

We worship one God, one God
Don't worship the Trinity, just one God
It's not a mystery, or three heads
We worship one God, one God.

Ready for a Change

by Michael Shamblin

When Iím in the world sing hallelujah!
When Iím in the world sing hallelujah!
When Iím in the world sing hallelujah,
hallelujah Youíre my true love.

And God please help me keep my focus,
keep my focus...I want to only notice You.

Iím ready for a change,
I'm ready for a change,
I'm ready for a change...

Lord Iím tired and I need my savior,
need my savior... Help me labor

On and on like the ones before me,
ones before me...I want to only adore Thee.

Iím ready for a change,
I'm ready for a change,
I'm ready for a change...

When Iím in the world sing hallelujah

Rely On

by Michael Shamblin

Cause I wanted to find Zion
and God I need you to Rely On.

I don't want no sin, never goin' back again,
I spent too many years in that Vatican.

I believe this is a place of miracles
and the people are pure and are spirit led.

The world is starvin' for truth,
but here in this place we truly are fed.

Those dark clouds fly over the horizon make your mind spin.
My eyes have been blinded with tears from lies as long as I've been
wanderin' through alleys all along stained-glass windows shined in cathedrals
where the dragon and I spent way too much time.

Cause I wanted to find Zion
and God I need you to Rely On.

I don't want no sin, never goin' back again,
I spent too many years in that Vatican.

I believe this is a place of miracles
and the people are pure and are spirit led.

The world is starvin' for truth,
but here in this place we truly are fed.

You reap what you sow, but a church will tell you differently.
It's enough to make a pilgrim on the road struggle down mentally.

You're not gonna make it man, he's gonna catch up to you eventually,
but then you hear the news that a prophet has been sent.

Cause I wanted to find Zion
and God I need you to Rely On.

I don't want no sin, never goin' back again,
I spent too many years in that Vatican.

I believe this is a place of miracles
and the people are pure and are spirit led.

The world is starvin' for truth,
but here in this place we truly are fed.

Cause I wanted to find Zion
and God I need you to Rely On.

I don't want no sin, never goin' back again,
I spent too many years in that Vatican.

I believe this is a place of miracles
and the people are pure and are spirit led.

The world is starvin' for truth,
but here in this place we truly are fed.

The world is starvin' for truth, but here in this place we truly are fed.
The world is starvin' for truth, but here in this place we truly are fed.

Thankful for Livin'

by Michael Shamblin

Itís hard to deny, this cool air feels so pure.
Youíll think you can fly, His Spirit takin over.

Haters say, give me reasons, youíre a thriver,
In dark seasons, a survivor.

Autumn high though leaves are dry,
brother, how do you fight?...

Iíll keep shinin my light, shining my light.
Every day is the same, headed straight for the grave.

And Iím thankful for livin, thankful for livin, thankful for livin, a ya...

Iíll keep shinin my light, livin my life...
Every day is the same, headed straight for the grave.

And Iím thankful for livin, thankful for livin, thankful for livin, a ya...

Under fall skies, trees grow straight,
can you live upright, sure...

Give it more strength, like leaves, die,
one day youíll be lighter...

Doubters say, give me reasons, youíre a thriver,
In dark seasons, a survivor.

Autumn high though leaves are dry,
brother, how do you fight?

I’ll keep shinin my light, shining my light.
Every day is the same, headed straight for the grave.

And I’m thankful for livin, thankful for livin, thankful for livin, a ya...

I’ll keep shinin my light, livin my life...
Every day is the same, headed straight for the grave.

And I’m thankful for livin, thankful for livin, thankful for livin, a ya...

Lightning flashes Ďcross the sky,
the church repents and maybe grieves,
as His thunder roars a nightmare lullaby...

Strips the trees of summer leaves,
and though weíre shaken, still believers,
Jesus is the reason that I might...

Iíll keep shinin my light, shining my light
Every day is the same, headed straight for the grave

And Iím thankful for livin, thankful for livin, thankful for livin, a ya...

Iíll keep shinin my light, livin my life...
Every day is the same, headed straight for the grave

And Iím thankful for livin, thankful for livin, thankful for livin, a ya...

Iíll keep shinin my light, shining my light
Every day is the same, headed straight for the grave

And Iím thankful for livin, thankful for livin, thankful for livin, a ya...

Iíll keep shinin my light, livin my life...
Every day is the same, headed straight for the grave

And Iím thankful for livin, thankful for livin, thankful for livin, a ya...

Two Roads

by Michael Shamblin

Two roads, diverged in a yellow wood
And knowing I could not travel both, a traveler for long I stood...

I looked as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth.
I looked as far as I could, where it went, oh, no one knows.

And then the other just as fair, perhaps had a better claim, so grassy and new.
All the people that were passing thereÖ I knew they were not the same!

Two roads diverged in a wood, I took the less traveled way.
Two roads diverged in a wood, a decision I made that day.
And ya, the difference has been good, thereís nothing much else to say.
But praise the LordÖ. Ya, praise the LordÖ

In the leaves, no step had trodden black, ohÖ
And knowing how a way leads to another way, I doubted Iíd ever be back.

I looked as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth.
I looked as far as I could, where it went, oh, no one knows.

And then the other just as fair, perhaps had a better claim, so grassy and new.
All the people that were passing there I knew they were not the same!

Two roads diverged in a wood, I took the less traveled way.
Two roads diverged in a wood, a decision I made that day.
And ya, the difference has been good, thereís nothing much else to say.
But praise the LordÖ. Ya, praise the LordÖ

Going down that less-traveled road!...
I learned what it meant to bend down and carry my load.

So Iím singing Hallelujah Hallelujah!

Somewhere ages and ages hence, oh Lord!
Children will be telling children how this road has made all the difference!

I looked as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth.
I looked as far as I could, where it went, oh, no one knows.

And then the other just as fair, perhaps had a better claim, so grassy and new.
All the people that were passing there I knew they were not the same!

Two roads diverged in a wood, I took the less traveled way.
Two roads diverged in a wood, a decision I made that day.

And ya, the difference has been good, thereís nothing much else to say
But praise the Lord Ya, praise the Lord So praise the Lord.

We Serve God

by Michael Shamblin

Feel His Holy Spirit, moving ever nearer
It makes us look inward and clears up our sight.

In a sweet reflection of introspection,
God, weíre slowing down, find forgiveness and make it all right.

We serve God. This place is filled with holy lights.
We bow down, and praise you for your wonder and might.

And we serve Jesus Christ, for His holy sacrifice
And we will imitate and give You our lives.

Weíre on a Spirit journey, a blessed opportunity,
With a holy community gathered around.

True pilgrims are seeking, repent, forgive, and living.
They're knowin that nothingís worth losing that crown.

We serve God This place is filled with holy lights.
We bow down, and praise you for your wonder and might.

And we serve Jesus Christ, for His holy sacrifice
And we will imitate and give You our lives.

We serve God This place is filled with holy lights.
We bow down, and praise you for your wonder and might.

And we serve Jesus Christ, for His holy sacrifice
And we will imitate and give You our lives.

We serve God This place is filled with holy lights.
We bow down, and praise you for your wonder and might.

And we serve Jesus Christ, for His holy sacrifice

We Sing Hallelujah

To the one true God We sing hallelujah.

Hallelujah! We sing praises to ya.

You Amaze Me

by David Martin

Listen Jacob, O my servant
Israel whom I choose.
This is what your LORD says
He who made you in the womb.

Don't be afraid Jeshurun
I will water all your thirsty land.

I'm pouring out My Spirit children
please just take My Hand. I BELONG TO YOU O LORD!

You amaze me! You amaze me!

And if the sun and moon can shout Your praises,
O God then so will I!
You amaze me! You amaze me!

Marry me O Jesus, I can't wait here anymore.
Mercy from your throne has saved me I'm running through that door.

I'll never be the same, ever since you came
For your glory and your fame.

No more shame, no guilt, no blame
Yes I've got a brand new name!
AND I WILL DANCE THE DANCE OF PRAISE!

You amaze me! You amaze me!

You are the first and last, say goodbye to the past O my heart is pounding so fast!

You amaze me! You amaze me!

Sing for joy O heavens
For the LORD'S redeemed your soul.

Shout aloud O earth beneath
Let the mighty thunder roll.

Cry it out you mountains, forest, trees
You starry host on high.

I'M the LORD, now you are mine.
So spread your wings and fly!
ZION'S WALLS SHALL REACH THE SKY!

You amaze me! You amaze me!
And if the sun and moon can shout your praises
O God then so will I!

You amaze me! You amaze me!
You're the first and last, say goodbye to the past
O my heart is pounding so fast!
You amaze me! You amaze me!

Your Eyes

by Andrew Fischer and the Youth Praise Band

When I look in your eyes, all that I see
is the love that we share smiling back at me.

As I hold your hand, though tests may seem long,
This is where I stand. I'm right where I belong.

Though the night seems so long and the arrows fly
All that my heart longs for is you by my side

In this world that we live the focus is strayed
But right here, in your will, is where I long to stay.

When I look in your eyes, all that I see
is the love that we share smiling back at me.

As I hold your hand, though tests may seem long,
This is where I stand. I'm right where I belong
