01 Bema Seat
Words and music: Bob Hartman

When our labors all retire
There will be a trial by fire
Will your treasure pass the test
Or will it burn up with the rest
You may build upon a sure foundation
With your building in delapidation
When it all comes down to rubble
Will it be wood hay or stubble
Or precious stones, gold and silver - Are you really sure

And we all will stand at the Bema Seat
All will be revealed - it will be complete
Will there be reward in the fiery heat
When we see our lives at the Bema Seat

Every talent will be surely counted
Every word will have to be accounted
Not a story will be left untold
We will stand and watch the truth unfold
Every score will be evened - nothing to defend

Every building will be shaken
Every motive will be tried
He'll give reward to the faithful
Will you receive or be denied
02 Clean
Words and music: Bob Hartman

You might see me stumble, you might see me fall
You might see me cornered with my back against the wall
Maybe incognito, maybe out to lunch
Maybe caught redhanded or maybe just a hunch

But I'm clean, clean, clean before my Lord
Clean, clean, clean before my Lord
Like a spotless lamb I'm blameless in His sight
With no trace of wrong left to right
I'm clean, clean, clean

Kneeling in the closet begging daily bread
There may be a skeleton hanging overhead
Where are my accusers, nowhere to be found
They all dropped their stones when the Master came around

I've missed the mark, I can't deny it
I don't condone or justify it
But I've done nothing that His blood can't wash away
When I take it to the cross and start to pray

Hey, I'm talking to you
Hey, He's gonna see me through
Hey, I'm talking to you
03 Angel Of Light
Words and music: Bob Hartman

City lights are flashing, they call you to the street
Hearts are filled with passion in everyone you meet
The boulevard is waiting, it wants to get you high
The neon signs are waiting to sell you anything
You wanna buy

But I know your devices and it shouldn't seem so odd
You lied from the beginning, I see through your facade

Angel of light, I see you glow in the night
But you only bring darkness to my soul
Angel of light, you're telling me wrong is right
But I won't let your evil take control

They follow in your footsteps not knowing that you fell
Bumper to bumper on the freeway to hell
You lead them into wrong and you make it look so right
You lead them into darkness and make them think you lead them into light

But I know where you're going, too bad you're not alone
If it wasn't for the real light I might have never known

You got the clergy working overtime to widen the narrow way
You've got politicians everywhere listening to what you say
You've got false apostles teaching lies, perverting the only way
You've got principalities and powers waiting to obey
You've got philosophies and vain deceits lying to deceive
You've got hate and greed, ungoldy lust in the deadly web you weave
Somehow you've got so many think you're not even there
One look is all it takes to get them blinded by your glare
04 Rose Colored Stained Glass Windows
Words and music: Bob Hartman

Another sleepy Sunday safe within the walls
Outside a dying world in desperation calls
But no one hears the crys or knows what they're about
The doors are locked within or is it from without

Looking through rose colored stained glass windows
Never allowing the world to come in
Seeing no evil and feeling no pain
Making the light as it comes from within
So dim... So dim

Out on your doorstep lay the masses in decay
Ignore them long enough maybe they'll go away
When you have so much you think you have so much to lose
You think you have no lack when you're really destitute
05 Godpleaser
Words and music: Bob Hartman

So many voices telling me which way to go
So many choices come from those who think they know
There's a way that seems right to a man
But it only brings him death
I wanna go the way that leads to life
Till I draw my dying breath

Don't wanna be a manpleaser - I wanna be a Godpleaser
I just want to have the wisdom to discern the two apart
Don't wanna be a manpleaser - I wanna be a Godpleaser
I just want to do the things that please the Father's heart

Some make a sacrifice and never let it show
Some make a point of letting everybody know
Some will live their lives as unto men
And they have their reward
I just wanna do everything I do
With my heart unto the Lord

I just want my life to glorify His Son
To make my Father proud that I'm His child before I'm done
No need to pat me on the back or stop to shake my hand
I just want to hear my Father say, "Well done"
06 Second Wind
Words and music: Bob Hartman

Long distance run from darkness
Headed into the sun
And it seems like eternity
Till this race is won
Soul and spirit weak and weary
Strenght was almost gone
When a soothing gentle breeze
Carried me further on

I've got my second wind, Spirit's coming again
I've got a new revelation of the King of Kings
Found my second wind, I feel my strength returning again
Returning again

Through the desert night in darkness
Racing toward the light
There were too many hills to climb
Too many battles to fight
Then distant lights were calling
Beckoned me as a guest
When I saw an oasis there
I entered into a rest

Just when I thought I couldn't run any longer - I got my second wind
Just when I thought I'd never be any stronger - I got my second wind
Just when I thought that I would fall into darkness - I got my second wind
Just when I thought that I would fail every test - I got my second wind
07 More Power To Ya
Words and music: Bob Hartman

You say you've been feeling weaker, weaker by the day
You say you can't make the joy of your salvation stay
But good things come to them that wait
Not to those who hesitate
So hurry up and wait upon the Lord

More power to ya, when you're standing on His word
When you're trusting with your whole heart in the message you have heard
More power to ya, when we're all in one accord
They that wait upon the Lord, they shall renew, they shall renew their strength

Jesus promised His disciples He'd give strength to them
Jesus told them all to tarry in Jerusalem
When they were all in one accord
The Power of His Spirit poured
And they began to turn the world around

So be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might
Put on all His armour and fight the good fight
In all of our weakness He becomes so strong
And He gives us the power and the strength to carry on
08 Let Everything That Hath Breath (Praise The Lord)
Words and music: Greg X. Volz

Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord
Let every creature under God's sun praise the Lord
Let all the mountains, let all the valleys, let all the hillsides sing of His glory
Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord

Israel had a war to fight but the Lord showed them the secret
He said the battle this day is Mine but you must listen how to do it
Put your singers first in front of the rest
Let them praise and sing to Me
And you will see the salvation of your God
And watch your enemies flee

Paul and Silas were thrown in jail for preaching the gospel of Christ
Though in chains they praised His name singing songs in the night
Just then an earthquake shook the place and the chains and the doors were loosened
Then the jailer ran in scared to death and that day he found salvation

Let the children of God sing the songs of His glory
09 Grave Robber
Words and music: Bob Hartman

There's a step that we all take alone
An appointment we have with the great unknown
Like a vapor this life is just waiting to pass
Like the flowers that fade like the withering grass
But life seems so long and death so complete
And the grave an impossible portion to cheat
But there's One who has been there and still lives to tell
There is One who has been through both heaven and hell
And the grave will come up empty handed that day
Jesus will come and steal us away

Where is the sting tell me where is the bite
When the grave robber comes like a thief in the night
Where is the victory where is the prize
When the grave robber comes
And death finally dies

Many still mourn, many still weep
For those that they love who have fallen asleep
But we have this hope though our hearts may still ache
Just one shout from above and they all will awake
And in the reunion of joy we will see
Death will be swallowed in sweet victory

When the last enemy is gone from the dust will come a song
Those asleep will be awakened - not a one will be forsaken
He shall wipe away our tears - He will steal away our fears
There will be no sad tomorrow - There will be no pain and sorrow
10 Adonai
Words and music: Bob Hartman

This thirsting within my soul
Won't cease till I've been made whole
To know You, to walk with You
To please You in all I do
You uphold the righteous and your faithfulness shall endure

Adonai, Master of the earth and sky
You alone are worthy, Adonai
Adonai, let creation testify
Let your majesty be magnified in me
Adonai, You are an endless mystery

Unchanging consuming fire
Lift me up from mud and mire
Set my feet upon Your rock, let me dwell in Your righteousness

When the storms surround me, speak the word and they will be still
And this thirst and hunger is a longing only You can fill
11 Back To The Rock
Words and music: Greg X. Volz

Back to the Rock that is higher than I
Take me to the well that will never run dry
Take me, take me, Lord
To the Rock that is higher than I

There was a man who built his house upon the sinking sand
When the wind and rain came, it washed it all away
There was another man who learned to watch and pray
And he built his house upon a rock of Jesus and it still stands today

Take me to the Rock
To the Rock of my salvation
Take me to the Rock
To the well for every nation
Take me to the Rock

Everyone who hears the voice of Jesus and obeys
Is like the man who built his house upon the rock that stands
It was the Son of Man who gave us this command
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, your mind, your strength
12 Too Big To Fail
Word and music: Bob Hartman

From the depths of the deep blue sea
To the end of the heavenlies
He is God over all the earth
To the end of the universe

He reigns from his throne on high
He reigns over you and I
Ill testify

Too big, too big
Our God is too big to fail
Too big, our God is too big
Too big, too big
Our God is too big to fail
Too big, our God is too big to fail

Hes loving and merciful
His grace is unsearchable
Hes Lord over sea and sod
There is none who is like our God

He stretched forth the heavens
And He laid the foundations of the earth
All glory and honour
And praise to the one who lives and reigns
