You Can't Ask Too Much Of My God

You Can't Ask Too Much of My God

When David gathered a handful of stones,
And where the soldiers had fallen, he waited alone.
With a prayer and a little rock, the giant fell right on the spot.
That's what David prayed for, that's what David got.
You can't ask too much of my God.
You can't ask too much of my God.

There was a woman drawing water from a well.
So many regrets, so often she'd failed.
Jesus knew where she had been; still He forgave her of her sin.
In her life began to flow, living water for the soul.
You can't ask too much of my God.
You can't ask too much of my God.

Chorus
When you're broken
And you cannot find the peace of mind that seems to leave you behind
Have you spoken to the God of Abraham, the Great I Am?
He's greater than any problem you've got.
And you can't ask too much of my God.
No you can't ask too much of my God.

Upon the three Hebrew children God smiled.
And when Sarah was ninety, God gave her a child.
Now I believe that just as then, He’s here to move like that again.
He has a miracle to do; He only needs to hear from you.
And you can't ask too much of my God.
No you can't ask too much of my God.

He Will Never Forsake You

Each day brought disappointment.
It seemed each one was for me.
My life was going nowhere
My hopes turned to shattered dreams.
Then a voice so gently beckoned
I have always been around.
I will never leave you lonely
I will never let you down.

Chorus
He knows when you're alone and sad with no one to call your friend
And every time you may fall, He'll pick you up again.
And when you need a helping hand, He will always be around.
He will never forsake you; My Lord will never let you down.

Even in your darkest hours
When you feel so all alone.
You can call on the name of Jesus.
He hears your earnest call.
The answer is soon coming.
For He knows what is the gain.
My Lord will never forsake you.
He will never let you down.

Repeat Chorus

He will never forsake you. My Lord will never let you down.

You Never Know

Chorus
You never know (never know)
When He calls (when He calls)
But you know when you're living right.
You never know when He calls,
So you better get the job done right.

Won't you tell Him all about the family.
Won't you tell Him all about your job.
Tell Him all about your problems.
You're talking to the Son of God.

You're talking to the One who answers.
He answers in the middle of the night.
You're talking to the One who never fails.
You're talking to the Man on high.

Repeat Chorus

Don't be like the friends of Noah.
They were knocking and a banging on the door.
They waiting and they hesitated one day too long
And the rains began to poor.

No doubt they cried my Father,
Have mercy on the children for their sins.
They began to knocking when the boat began to rocking
But the hand of God would never let them in.

You never know (never know)
When He calls (ya never know)
You never know (never know)
When He calls (ya never know)
In the morning (never know, ya never know)
In the evening (never know ,never know)
You never know (never know, ya never know, never know, ya never know)

Repeat Chorus

Ya never know when He calls
So you better get the job done right.

When Jesus Is All That I Have

I don't worry about the rain or the storm clouds
Or the trouble Satan has for me today.
Though the very best in Hell may rise against me,
There's a greater power standing in his way.

I don't fret about the news or the headlines
Or a world that has the devil yet to pay.
I've been bought by the blood of the Savior
And I rest assured good news is on the way.

Chorus
When Jesus is all that I have, He's all that I need. (all that I need, He is all that I need)
Abundantly more than enough to face my enemies (abundantly more than enough for my need)
Though the thunder rolls around me and the lightning flash surrounds me
Though the adversary drives me to my knees.
When Jesus is all that I have, He's all that I need.

If you carry a burden on your shoulders
And you can't escape the chains that have you bound.
If you hear Satan laugh through hollow promises,
Let me tell you of the victory I've found.

Repeat Chorus

Though the thunder rolls around me and the lightning flash surrounds me
Though the adversary drives me to my knees.
When Jesus is all that I have, He's all that I need.

When Jesus is all that I have
When Jesus is all that I have
When Jesus is all that I have
He's all that I need.

 Love Did

Love was born one starry night. God's promise was fulfilled.
This child would be our Savior, Lord and Friend.
He came to touch this hurting world so broken lives could be healed.
And he proved it when He died and rose again.

Chorus
Love did everything His word said it would.
Love did so much more than we ever dreamed it could.
When He was hanging on the hill, suffering for our sins.
Nails didn't keep Him on the cross, Love did.

Arms of grace are reaching out, holding mercy, holding hope.
The open heart of God is there for you.
You may be a prisoner of your past and feel so all alone.
But it doesn't matter whatever you've been through.

Repeat Chorus 2x

Nails didn't keep Him on the cross, Love did.

Entertaining Angels

I feel a presence oh so near.
Seems I can almost hear the angels singing.
It's got to be angels.

Coming down from God above.
To cover me with wings of love, it must be angels.
Heavenly angels.

They must be standing near me now.
They must be camping all around me.

Chorus
Entertaining angels.
Angels unaware.
Watching over you and me.
Hearing our every prayer.
Ready any moment to be at your side.
No matter where you are, you'll never be too far.
There will be angels. Angels unaware.

Did you know the man today
That stopped to help you on your way
Was it an angel?
A heavenly angel.

Have you felt a guiding hand?
Or heard a whisper in the wind?
Could it be angels?
Heavenly angels.

They must be standing near you now.
They must be camping all around you.

Repeat chorus

Oooo, my God loves you
And He's watching all the time.
He's sending Holy angels
And they are standing by your side.

Repeat Chorus

Angels....
Angels....
Angels....

Palms Of Victory

I saw a wayward traveler in tattered garments clad
And struggling up the mountain, it seemed that he was sad.
His back was heavy laden. His strength was almost gone.
Yet he shouted as he traveled, deliverance has come.

Chorus
Then palms (palms) of victory. Crowns (crowns) of glory.
Palms (palms) of victory, I shall wear.

I saw him in the evening. The sun was sinking low
It overcame the mountain and reached the vale below.
HE saw that golden city. His everlasting home.
And shouted loud Hosanna. Deliverance will come.

Repeat Chorus

While gazing on that city just o'er the narrow flood.
A band of holy angels came from the throne of God.
They bore him on their pinions. Save o'er the dashing foam.
And joined him in his triumph.
Deliverance has come.

Repeat Chorus

It seems I hear the angels around the throne so grand.
They're shouting glad Hosanna's, we've reached the Promised Land.
When we have reached that city. Our race on earth we've run.
We'll all should loud Hosanna's, deliverance has come

Repeat Chorus 3x

My God Is Watching Over Me

I've been hungry with no supply.
I've been thirsty, parched and dry.
I've been lonely without a friend.
I've been lost and bound in sin.

But when I was hungry He was my bread of life.
When I was thirsty He was my spring of living water.
When I was lonely He called me friend.
And when I was lost He took me in.

Chorus
My God is watching over me.
My God is watching over me.
Wherever I am, whatever it is He's big enough to lead.
Through the circumstance and my frustration.
He's the God of the situation.
My God is watching over me.
My God is watching over me.

I've been weary, tired and worn.
I've been troubled and brought to scorn.
I've been been discouraged and ready to give in.
I've had frustrations that seem to never end.

But when I was weary He was my strength and might.
When I was troubled He was my peace all through the night.
When I was discouraged I found the will to fight and win.
In my frustrations He comes through again.

Yes He's my father, He's a God who meets my needs.
There'll never be a problem where He fails to intercede.
Whatever it is He's big enough to lead.
My God is watching over me.

Repeat Chorus 2x

My God is watching over me.
My God is watching over me.

It Takes the Blood

Could you imagine a sky that holds no stars?
Or hands and feet divine that bear no scars?
You'll never find the ocean empty, or the holy tomb that's full.
Or a righteous man without the blood applied.

Chorus
It takes the blood to fully cleanse us of our sins.
Without the blood our life is hopeless and death the bitter end.
But the Lamb of God was slain to make provision for the claim.
"I claim the cleansing flood."
It takes the blood.

Can you imagine morning's dawn without the sun?
Or God as losing every battle that He'd won?
You'll never know the sweet bird's song or prove God's word to once be wrong.
Or know the risen Lamb without the blood applied.

Repeat Chorus

I claim the cleansing flood.
I claim the cleansing flood.
I claim the cleansing flood.
It takes the blood.

Don't You Know

Oh there's a city (don't you know)
Over yonder (don't you know)
Gates of pearl (don't you know)
And streets of gold (don't you know)
Where the crystal (don't you know) river flows (don't you know)
Oh don't you know (don't you know) Don't you know.

So soon our time (don't you know)
On earth is over (don't you know)
And swiftly life (don't you know)
Has slipped away. (don't you know)
But in that land (don't you know)
Of no tomorrow. (don't you know)
We'll know the light (don't you know, don't you know)
of endless day.

And it's the light (don't you know)
That shines for ever. (don't you know)
For it's the Glory (don't you know)
Of the Lord (don't you know)
And in that place (don't you know)
There'll be no other. (don't you know)
Tears that flow (don't you know) don't you know?

I'll meet again (don't you know)
With friends of loved ones. (don't yo know)
I'll walk with John (don't you know)
And saints of old. (don't you know)
I'll keep on walkin' (walkin')
walkin' (walkin')
walkin' (walkin')
walkin' (walkin')
Don't you know. (don't you know)
Don't you know.

I'll keep on walkin' (walkin')
walkin' (walkin')
walkin' (walkin')
walkin'
Oh don't you know. (don't you know)
Don't you know.
