Open Arms

length: 4:07

Quietly He speaks to me, gently He leads me
Lovingly the Shepherd carries me
He carries me hidden safely in His bosom

I feel His love inside when other times, my friend, I couldn't
He knows just what's best for me
The Good Shepherd knows, He knows just what I need

Quietly He speaks, gently the Master leads
So lovingly He carries me to a safe place of rest
And I feel the Master's unconditional love

Everlasting love ever so deeply inside of me
I'm so glad Jesus knows just what's best for me

The Good Shepherd knows
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil, for Jesus is with me
He leads me, He guides me, He hides me

In the shelter of His arms He holds me there
The Good Shepherd knows just what I need

Trust and Believe

length: 5:50

The Good Shepherd

Quietly He speaks to me.
Gently He leads me.
Lovingly the Shepherd carries me.
He carries me hidden safely in His bosom
I feel His love inside when other times, my friend, I couldn't.
He knows just what's best for me

Gotta Have Love

length: 4:23
Yeah!
Yeah yeah hhehheheh!
Yeah yeah uh heee yeah!

Gotta have love
Gotta have love
Gotta have love
real love

When I was just a girl
My mama said to me
You can't fight hate with hate
You gotta love unselfishly
Love is not just a word
But a way of life you keep
You need to know
You're not here just to receive

Now that I'm older
Her advice I still take heed
For the power of his love
Lives in me

Ya gotta have love
Ya gotta have love on your mind
Ya gotta have love
real love
Let your heart be your guide
It's gotta be real love
Feel so good in love
Gotta be real love
Or there's no sense in wasting your time

Didn't have to go far
To find myself
Cause he knows the real me
More than anyone else
I found a higher place
Who's voice I must obey
When I was a child
I heard the Word that say
Now abide in these
hope and charity
And the greatest of these three
Has set me free

Ya gotta have love
Ya gotta have love on your mind
Ya gotta have love
real love
Let your heart be your guide
It's gotta be real love
Feel so good in love
Gotta be real love
Or there's no sense in wasting your time
Gotta be unconditional love
Ya gotta be an example
Gotta have love
Love feels so good inside
It's gotta be a type of love
Or there's no sense in wasting your time
Yeah sing it girl
Ya gotta have love
Y.A.
Check it out check it out check it out

We got to have love
Because we're gettin' beat on the street
And others meet defeat with no heat
And nothin' to eat
And when you're walking down the street
You gotta step with pep
Cause fools are mad enough to rob you
Just to get a rep
Is it me G
Or is it society
But I can't see why
we kill for notoriety
That's whack
We lack love for the black
In fact
Let's end the attack
So we can get the love

Gotta have love
Gotta have love on your mind
The man on the street with nothing to eat
Wants love
The daughter who doesn't know her father
Wants love
Gotta have love
Mothers and fathers
Sisters and brothers
Want love
real love
Let your heart be your guide
Everybody I know
Even they want love
They want a love that's real
One they can feel
One that's deep inside
That they can no longer hide
It's gotta be real love
Gotta be love
Or there's no sense in wastin' yo time

What About the Children

length: 5:20
Tears streaming down, her heart is broken
Because her life is hurting, so am I
He wears a frown, his dreams are choking
And because he stands alone, his dreams will die

So, humbly I come to you and say
As I sound aloud the warfare of today
Hear me, I pray

What about the children?
To ignore is so easy
So many innocent children
Would choose the wrong way

So what about the children?
Remember when we were children?
And if not for those who loved us
And who cared enough to show us
Where would we be today?

Sir, where is your son? Where lies his refuge?
And if he can't come to you, then where can he run?
Such a foolish girl, yet still she's your daughter
And if you will just reminisce your days of young

You see, it's not where you've been
Nor what you've done because I know a friend
Who specializes in great outcomes
See his love overcomes

And what about the children?
To ignore is so easy
So many innocent children
Would choose the wrong way

Yes, what about the children?
Remember when we were children?
And if not for those who loved us
And who cared enough to show us
Where would we be today?

What about the children?
Don't just turn and walk away
What about the children?
They need our love and our help today

Yes, what about the children?
Remember when we were children?
And if not for those who loved us
And who cared enough to show us
Where would we be today?

Where would we be today?
Where would we be today?
What about the children?

My Desire

Take away any desire in me that hurts You
Take away anything that stands between You and me
I want to be what You created me to be
It's my desire that You find favor in me
Lord, take away anything that displeases You

Take away any evil thought within me
Take away anything that proves to break Your heart
I want to be in sweet communion with You
It's my desire to do everything You want me to do
Lord, take away anything that displeases You

Remove all doubt, all insecurity
Erase all hate, all iniquity
Discard all the fear found deep within me

Fly Like an Eagle (Medley)

length: 4:05
It's almost time...
I'm waiting...
Almost time...

Time keeps on slippin', into the future
Time keeps on slippin', into the future

I'm gonna fly like an eagle, to the sea
Fly like an eagle, let the spirit carry me
I'm gonna fly like an eagle, til I'm free
On through the revolution

Feed the babies who don't have enough to eat
Shoe the children with no shoes on their feet
House the people livin' in the street
Ooooh, there's a solution

I'm gonna fly like an eagle, to the sea
Fly like an eagle, let the spirit carry me
I'm gonna fly like an eagle, til I'm free
On through the revolution

There are times when I would like
to fly away from here
far this place of hurt and woe
and just disappear
To that place prepared by my love
that is where I'll go
Waiting for that great day 'cause I love Him so

I love Him so

[Sax solo]

Time keeps on slippin'
Time keeps on slippin'
Wold keeps on fightin'
Brother keepin on dyin'
Time keeps on slippin'
People keep on trippin'
World keeps on fightin'
but I am delightin'
in the fact that I will fly away
I'll fly away
One day i'm gonna fly away
One day i'm gonna fly away...

So many nights I wondered
About this day I pondered
When you just stepped right in

All I knew is I needed you and you rescued me
And you changed my life
