I Saw The Light

Hank Williams

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

I wandered so aimless life filled with sin
I wouldn't let my dear Saviour in
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
Praise the Lord I saw the light

I saw the light I saw the light
No more darkness no more night
Now I'm so happy no sorrow in sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light
[ guitar ]
Just like a blind man I wandered alone
Worries and fears I claimed for my own
Then like a blind man that God gave back his sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light

I saw the light I saw the light...
[ guitar ]
I was a fool to wander and stray
For strait is the gate and narrow the way
Now I have traded the wrong for the right
Praise the Lord I saw the light

I saw the light I saw the light...
Praise the Lord I saw the light

Great Speckled Bird

Roy Carter - Guy Smith

© Songs Of Universal, BMI

What a beautiful thought I am thinking
Concerning a great speckled bird
Remember her name is recorded
On the pages of God's holy word

Desiring to lower her standards
They watch every move that she makes
They long to find fault with her teaching
But really they find no mistakes
[ steel ]
I am glad I have learned of her meekness
And I am proud that my name is on her book
For I want to be one never fearing
The face of my Saviour's true look

When he comes descending from heaven
On the cloud as he writes in his words
I'll be joyfully carried to meet him
On the wings of that great speckled bird

Precious Memories

J.B.F. Wright

© Bridge Building Music, BMI

Precious mem'ries unseen angels sent from somewhere to my soul
How they linger ever near me and the sacred past unfolds

Precious mem'ries how they linger how they ever flood my soul
In the stillness of the midnight precious sacred scenes unfold
[ guitar ]
Precious father loving mother fly across the lonely years
And old home scenes of my childhood in fond memory appear

Precious mem'ries how they linger how they ever flood my soul...

When It's Prayer Meeting Time In The Hollow

Al Rice - Fleming Allan

© Fleming Allan Music, PD

When it's prayer meetin' time in the hollow
In that vine covered shrine neath the pines
Then the girl that I love sends a prayer up above
Where we once pledged our love so divine

Till the day I go back to that hollow
I will follow that old golden rule
For it taught me to pray and to live for the day
When we'll meet in that hollow back home
[ guitar ]
(When it's prayer meetin' time in the hollow...

Family Bible

Paul Buskirk - Claude Gray - Walt Breeland

© Glad Music, BMI / Pappy Daily Music, BMI

There's a family Bible on the table
Its pages torn and hard to read
But the family Bible on the table
Will ever be my key to memory

At the end of day when work was over
And when the evening meal was done
Dad would read to us from the family Bible
And we'd count our many blessings one by one

I can see us sitting round the table
When from the family Bible dad would read
And I can hear my mother softly singing
Rock of ages rock of ages cleft for me

This old world of ours is full of trouble
But this old world would also better be
If we'd find more Bibles on the tables
And mothers singing rock of ages cleft for me

I can see us sitting round the table...

He'll Understand And Say Well Done

Jesse Baxter - Lucie Campbell - Roger Wilson

© Anne Rachel Music, ASCAP

Give when you give the best of your service
Telling the world that the Saviour has come
Be not dismay if man don't believe you
He'll understand and say well done

Oh when I come to the end of my journey
Weary of life and the battle is won
Caring the staff and the cross of redemption
He'll understand and say well done
[ guitar ]
Oh when I come to the end of my journey...

Wings Of A Dove

Bob Ferguson

© Husky Music, BMI / Larrick Music, BMI

On the wings of a snow white dove
He sends his pure sweet love
A sign from above on the wings of a dove

When troubles surround us when evils come
The body grows weak the spirit grows numb
When these things beset us he doesn't forget us
He sends down his love on the wings of a dove

On the wings of a snow white dove...

When Noah had drifted on the flood many days
He searched for land in various ways
Troubles he had some but wasn't forgotten
He sent him his love on the wings of a dove

On the wings of a snow white dove...
On the wings of a snow white dove...

Follow Me

Sandra Adlon - Virginia Balmer - Leon Rhodes

© Ernest Tubb Music, BMI

At the end of the day my heart's filled with despair
I knelt by my bed for a moment of prayer
I asked God to help me and show me the way
Then out of the darkness a voice seemed to say

Follow me and your sins will be washed snowy white
Follow me to the streets that are paved with pure gold
Follow me and your darkness would turn into light
You'll see riches and treasures untold
[ steel ]
I was lost in a world filled with doubt and the shame
Each day brought me tears that I'd fall by the way
Then out of the rocks and the caverns they came
A voice that somehow seemed to say

Follow me and your load will be lighter to bear
Follow and your heart will be free from all care
Follow me and I'll make you a place with him there
If you would just follow me

What A Friend We Have In Jesus

Joseph Scrivens - Charles Converse - Sid Feller

© Redwood Music, BMI

What a friend we have in Jesus all our sins and grieves to bear
(What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer)

Oh what peace we often forfeit of what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer
[ steel ]
Have we trials and temptations is there trouble anywhere
We should never be discouraged take it to the Lord in prayer

(Can we find up friend so faithful who will all our sorrow share)
Jesus knows our every weakness take it to the Lord in prayer
Take it to the Lord in prayer

Lonesome Valley

A.P. Carter

© Peer International, BMI

You gotta walk that lonesome valley
You gotta go there by yourself
There's no one here can go there with you
You gotta go there by yourself

Mother said while she was dying
And her breath was almost gone
Keep your trust in the Holy Bible
It will guide you safely home

You gotta walk that lonesome valley...
[ guitar ]
If you cannot sing like angels
If you cannot preach like Paul
You can tell the love of Jesus
You can tell he died for all

You gotta walk that lonesome valley...

Stand By Me

Charles Tindley

© Ernest Tubb Music, BMI

When the storms of life are raging stand by me
When the storms of life are raging stand by me
When the world is tossing me like a ship upon the sea
Thou who rulest wind and water stand by me

When the midst of tribulation stand by me
When the midst of tribulation stand by me
When the hosts of hell assail and my strength begins to fail
Thou who never lost a battle stand by me
[ guitar ]
When the midst of faults and failures stand by me
When the midst of faults and failures stand by me
When I do the best I can and my friends misunderstand
Thou who knowest all about me stand by me

When I'm growing old and feeble stand by me
When I'm growing old and feeble stand by me
When my life becomes a burden and I'm nearing chilly Jordan
O Thou Lily of the Valley stand by me (stand by me)

If We Never Meet Again

Albert E. Brumley

© Fly Away Music, BMI

If we never meet again this side of heaven
As we struggle through this world and its strife
There's another meeting place somewhere in heaven
By the side of the river of life

Where the charming roses bloom forever
And where separation comes no more
If we never meet again this side of heaven
I will meet you on that beautiful shore
[ steel ]
Soon we'll come to the end of life's journey
And perhaps we'll never meet anymore
Till we gather in heaven's bright city
Far away on that beautiful shore

Where the charming roses bloom forever...
