GREG X. VOLZ - GOD ONLY KNOWS

01 God Only Knows
Words and music: Greg X. Volz

God only knows what it will take
Will I get to heaven for heavenís sake
God only knows what I will do
A man needs his faith to see him through
God only knows where I will go
Itís up to Him donít you know
God only knows where I will be
Heís made a place thatís just for me

God only knows, God only knows

God only knows what it will take
Will I get to heaven for heavenís sake
God knows what I will do
The Truth is going to pierce me through and through
02 The Grave Is Empty
Words and music: Greg X. Volz

He's not here
The grave is empty

He's the man that walks on water
Did you hear Him say
To the man who was invited
To the feast today
He's the man that walks on water
Did you hear Him say
To the man who was exalted
You'll be freed today

Once and for all the debt was paid
There's an open window in heaven today
Death has lost its deadly sting
And out of the grave new life He'll bring

He's the man that walks on water
Did you hear Him say
To the man who was invited
To the feast today
He's the man that walks on water
Heard someone say
To the man who was exalted
Resurrection day
03 Exercise Your Faith
Words and music: Greg X. Volz

Have you exercised your faith today
Or are you strictly going through the motions
Cause if you exercise your faith today
You're bound to stir up quite a commotion
Jesus healed the blind man on the Sabbath day
Were the Pharisees convinced they would make him pay
When all was said and done it was needless to say
Only God could heal the blind man on that day

Did you exercise your faith today
Or are you strictly going through the motions
Cause if you exercise your faith today
You're bound to stir up quite a commotion
If you will seek, then you will find
Have faith in God, it's just a matter of time
Somehow you will complete the race
So you can claim the prize, when it's face to face

Exercise your faith
Exercise your faith today

Have you exercised your faith today
Like getting out of the boat and walk with Jesus on the water
Have you exercised your faith today
Like stretching out your hand to the blind man at the temple
Have you exercised your faith today
Like tearing off the rough, low and ...
Have you exercised your faith
Gotta exercise your faith today
04 It's Love
Words and music: Greg X. Volz

This is my heart
I love you today
I love you forever
Love you always
How great is that love
There's nothing better
It comes from above
It's something to treasure

It's love
I know it's love

I've laid down my life
Like the One did before me
I've given my all
To love and adore you
From deep in my heart
A new song I'll sing
God only knows
What tomorrow will bring
I hope

It's love
I hope it's love

Greater love has no man than this
That he lay down his life for a friend
05 The Rock
Words and music: Greg X. Volz

Take me 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

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

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

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
06 Dead Man's Party
Words and music: Greg X. Volz and Brent Luck

A party invitation I received in the mail
Come as you are, or wear hat, coat or tails
Standing in the doorway I heard a man say
You may enter, so step right this way

I'm going to a dead man's party
With my very last breath
I'm going to a dead man's party
And put my soul to rest
I'm going to a dead man's party
With my last desire
I'm going to a dead man's party
Till I get that holy fire

I was captivated by the Presence in the room
And all the tears and pain I felt I knew would leave me soon
I saw the change was coming, the writings on the wall
It was my destination, it started before the fall

Dressed up and ready to go
My robes are righteous, this I know
Got to seperate the precious from the vile
Gonna arrive in style
07 The Mirror
Words and music: Greg X. Volz

Where did the mirror go?

Cause when I looked up, I saw me there
Was a man that was so unaware
You have to seek then you will find
Your life is not a game, it's not a rhyme

Who was that man? What did I fear?
When I walked away the image was unclear
But then I heard an awesome sound
Was this the Master's voice that I had found?

What did I hear? Was I afraid?
How could I get a glimpse of me, then walk away
Why should I turn? Where should I go?
Was there a masterplan I did not know?

Where did the mirror go?
What did the mirror show?

I found the key, I was amazed
For His word became a mirror to my face
For it's the truth that I had found
My God had set my feet on higher found
08 Soldier Of Light
Words and music: Ron Volz

He was a Soldier of Light and Love
Took His orders direct from above
He never worried, doubted or feared
Just mounted up and rode out of here
Headed for a realm to get some supplies
Loading up for a big surprise
The Soldiers of Light and Love
Coming back down from above

He took a look down from the sky
He had a twitch at the edge of his eye
He had a hold on the main on His steed
Pushing hard, riding fast, yes indeed
Working on time, moving on down the line
The Soldier of Light and Love
Had a righteous mark on His glove

The Soldier of Light and of Love

Well, he knew just where to go
Didn't wait on a sign below
He had His fingers wrapped on a map
And some numbers painted on His hand
Flying along at the speed of sound
You could hear Him as He came around
The Soldier of Light and Love
Getting ready for the wings of a dove

The Soldier of Light and of Love
Throwing out the pages as we went by
If you listen you could hear Him cry
Coming on the clouds of a storm
Make up your mind, take heed, you've been warned
Guess I was looking for a little smile
But He was frowning at me all the while
That Soldier of Light and Love
Brought a message from above
09 Word Of The Lord
Words and music: Greg X. Volz

Hear it right, hear it right
Listen closely and you'll hear
Hear the voice as you draw near
Don't fear, hear the Word of the Lord
The Word of the Lord

Get it right, get it right
Listen closely and you'll hear
Make the choice as you draw near
Don't fear, hear the Word
The Word of the Lord

Get it right, get it right
Listen closely and you'll hear
Hear the voice as you draw near
Don't fear, hear the Word of the Lord
The Word of the Lord
10 Brand New Start
Words and music: Greg X. Volz

Some of the things you think about
Will make you want to jump and shout
But, when you realize that Jesus saves
It will change the way that you behave

God will reveal to you a plan that's new
And only time will tell
What heaven's all about
And if you come to Him with humble heart
He'll show you how to begin
And have a brand new start

Some other things you think about
Will even make you want to shout
When you realize this is the day
That your decision must be made
11 God Only Knows (Reprise)
