What songs are on "Soundproof" (2010)?

Our 18th CD, Soundproof, was first released in download in October 20, 2010. The CD followed shortly thereafter.

As the CD liner notes state, Soundproof is "based on a live recording." All six band members performed and recorded the tracks live before an audience in Wexford PA on July 9, 2010, and polished them up in the studio afterward.

We performed the tracks in the style of the old MTV "unplugged" CDs. Tom Milnes and Tom Tincha played acoustic electric guitars. Bill Hubauer played grand piano. Keith and Jimmy played bass and drums as usual. This album also features saxophone, fiddle, ukulele, and kazoo.

Note: The songs on the CD appear in the same order in which they were performed at the concert.

Lions
Parody of "Signs" performed by Five Man Electrical Band and Tesla and written by Les Emmerson
(Daniel 6)

King Darius had lots of very sneaky people feedin' him bad advice
And they worked for Daniel but other than that
They were planning to trap him with lies
They said, "If you'd like to sign a short-standing law now, oh, king, please do
So the people, they'll have to pray to your majesty
Or be served as cat food
Thrown to the ...

Lions! Lions! In the den of lions!
Talking 'bout the lean and mean, great big wild kind
Ruthless cold cruel cats
Don't you feed the lions!"

And Darius said "Anybody caught trespassin' this new law I have signed
In the month up ahead, well, I'm tellin' you now
Hey! We'll give you to the lions!"
But he never sensed or figured out what the new legislation did
Till guards appeared and told him to his face:
"Daniel's some lion's dinner!"
CHORUS

Well, hey you, Daniel can't you read?
We caught you havin' church -- it's time for penalties
I can't even watch those huge cats eat
You ain't supposed to pray here

Darius said, "I got to tell ya, Daniel, it's hard to let you die."
LEAD

And Darius went to bed but he hoped the Lord would come in
And help out his friend
And then he fasted while he waited till the end of the night
But didn't have the stomach to check
So he called to him, "Dan, did you make it?
Could you maybe give some little sign?"
He said, "Thank you, king, for thinkin' 'bout me I'm alive and doin' fine!"
Woaah!
CHORUS

*NOTE: Pronounce it "Duh-RAHY-uhs" when singing this song.
That's how it is pronounced on Dictionary.com.

Daniel 6:16
So the king gave the order, and they brought Daniel and threw him into the
lions' den. The king said to Daniel, "May your God, whom you serve
continually, rescue you!"


Sin of the World
Parody of "Cinnamon Girl" performed and written by Neil Young
(John 1:29; Genesis 22:8; Isaiah 53:7)

I want a lamb for the sin of the world
Christ would be happy to give up His life
For the sin of the world
I've seen in the scriptures that God will provide
A sheep and a shepherd, payin' the full price
For sin in the world

Here's what the facts is - in case you don't know
Old Johnny the Baptist - said, Hey there He goes
For the sin of the world
Reedemer of Israel, the one they call Christ
Is Jesus the Savior - givin' His own life
For sin in the world

God sent His only child so He could save us from hell
He give us all the chance
Believe on Him and just repent, yeah, yeah, yeah
LEAD

John 1:29
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said,
"Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!"


I'm Cured
Parody of "I'm Yours" performed and written by Jason Mraz
(Mark 2:1-12, Luke 5:17-26, Matthew 9:1-8)

Well, my crew done brung me in a bed I dwelt in
'Cause I was real ill and I could not move myself in
I felt quite rude, in fact, while I was lyin' on my back
But, Lord, I couldn't run out and now You're givin' me attention
And nothin' could have helped me but divine intervention
I reckon that's what just occurred
I've been somewhat burdensome

But I won't vegetate no more, oh Lord,
I'll stand up straight -- I'm cured

We'll open up the roof they said to me
Put ropes around your bed and then you'll be
Lowered to the floor in no time
From above now
Burst into the room and all the normal people gasped and shrieked
Just like some Greek tragedy
But if our God can make it right I'll get up, up, up, up

But I won't vegetate no more, oh Lord,
I'll stand up straight -- I'm cured
Guess I'll need to compensate that guy for sure
Whose roof they made a door
So doo-ja doo-ja doo-ja doo-ja
Doo-ja doo-ja doo doo doo doo-ja doo-ja
Want to come help?
Scoot that ladder over here
And I will the make the repairs
Soon there won't be any hole

I've been spending way too long thinking my trouble was merely
Dependin' on my back and legs but now I see it clearly
But now I just got off my back
And, Lord, it's You and your grace that I lacked
I guess that I'll be stayin' up and make my bed for sleepin'
Forgiveness was the very biggest gift that I was needin'
It's what You came to do
How lame is our excuse
CHORUS

Open up to Mark in verse 2:3
Open up to Luke in 5:18
Look in Matthew 9 and you'll find
I am cured
To please God, please God, please God
First you need to come in faith
Seek out Christ our Lord
Listen kids 'cause this one's got legs
I'm cured

Luke 5:19
When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they
went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into
the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus.


Did You Ever Ask Where Cain Got His Wife?
Parody of "Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind?" performed by the Lovin' Spoonful and written by John Sebastian
(Genesis 4:17, 5:4, Leviticus 18:9)

Did you ever ask where Cain got his wife?
Pick up the Word and read in Genesis 5
'Cause Adam and Evie had daughters besides
And you betcha that's where Cain got his wife

Did you ever ask "Then why was it right
For Cain to take one of his own sisters as bride?"
But so much has changed since the years have gone by
Did you ever let the Bible decide?

That time when Adam picked his wife -- he wasn't naughty
It came down to Eve -- who came from his body
Their children were the only ones in the world
It's not like Cain could choose a thousand other girls

And now you know at last where Cain got his wife
When pickin' the one to be the love of his life
It's no longer legal in our modern time
Read Leviticus in 18 verse 9

Now it's a really different world and billions exist here
And, man, I'm not attracted to my younger sister
And then God the Father took Moses aside
And said, tell 'em leave home, son, when takin' their brides

So if skeptics ever try to get snide
And they ask you dumb stuff just to cover their pride
Just go to the pages of Scripture as guide
Then you never have to blindly reply

Genesis 5:4
After Seth was born, Adam lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters.


Second Glance
Parody of "Second Chance" performed by Shinedown and written by Brent Smith & Dave Bassett
(2 Cor. 3:15-18)

My Bible's open wide
By the way, I made it through today
I read the words inside
By the way, I believe in all they say

I heard some hasty comments you made
So why'd you call me dumb and insane?
Even to mention it you get so weird
Something is the matter here

Tell my brothers about my Father
I've done the best I can
To make them read the lines
That saved my life
I hope they understand
I'm not crazy I'm just saved
Sometimes the Bible needs a second glance

See I tried once before this
And got afraid of what it had to say
This time I went and told the Lord
I'm gettin' close
So show me Lord the way

I did some crazy stuff in between
I tried to stall by runnin' away
But even then, man, it was soon crystal clear
I'm gonna lose my status here
CHORUS

2 Corinthians 3:15-16
Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. But
whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.


Yer Maker
Parody of "D'yer Mak'er" performed by Led Zeppelin and written by John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page & Robert Plant
(Romans 1:18-32, 2:1-8, 3:10, 3:23, 5:8, 6:23, 8:1, 10:9, 10:13)

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
You don't have to go ... to hell, oh no
You don't have to go ... to hell, no more
You don't have to go

I I I I I I follow Jesus Christ
I I I I I I swallowed all my pride
I I I I I I
Then He saved ... my soul

When I read the letter to Romans, it said, you're bad, bad, bad
When I saw the place I was goin', it made me scared, scared, scared
But He still loved me so, He wouldn't let me go
He loves you
Ooh baby, you got to know

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Everyone gets saved, oh oh oh oh
Only if they call His name - hey, hey
But if they refuse - Uh oh

I Know He saved my soul, oh, oh, oh, oh
You heard me, He saved my soul, oh, oh
Baby, please, don't go

When I read the letter He sent me, it said, you're bad, bad, bad
When I saw the place I was heading, it made me scared, scared, scared
But He still loved me so, He didn't wanna let me go
He loves you
Ooh baby, you got to know

Romans 5:8
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.


No One Is Good But One
Parody of "Only the Good Die Young" by Billy Joel
(Matthew 19:17, 27:51; Mark 10:18; Luke 18:19; Romans 3:10, 3:23, 6:23; Psalms 14:1-3, 53:1-3; Isaiah 64:6; Jeremiah 17:9)

Come out you sinners - don't hesitate
Half of the world learns much too late
Ah, but you need a savior - it comes down to faith
The righteous - well, gee, there's none

Well, they showed you the statutes - told you obey
Sent you to temple and taught you to pray
But they never told you the price had been paid
For sins that you might have done

'Cause no one is good - but one

You might have heard that once when the temple was around
The Place Most Holy was draped with a shroud
The high priest entered there just for a while
Ah, but that was for atonement
So c'mon to Jesus, I'll show you a sign
Temple officials I'm sure were surprised
To see that curtain divide when He died
Whenever He said it was done

Darlin' no one is good - but one
That's what I said - No one is good but one
No one is good but one

You got a righteousness that's a pile of dirty rags you're makin'
You need a brand new soul - you better toss the old
Well, verse 64:6 it's in Isaiah, the information
Ooh look in Psalm 14
And Paul recounts it all in Romans 3

Oh oh oh, they say there's a heaven for those await
One way to get there and that way is faith
And when the last of the sinners arrives through the gates
Definitive judgment comes

Darlin' no one is good but one
That's what I said ... I tell ya no one is good but one
No one is good but one
SAX SOLO

Jeremiah told ya all our hearts were sick beyond imagination
Ah, it's chapter 17
But do I have to tell you everything?
Oh oh oh - come out, come out, come out
Psalm 53 - get it straight - Half of the world learns much too late
Do me a favor - and come now in faith
The righteous will see the sun

But darlin' no one is good but one ...

Mark 10:18
"Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good except God alone."


Gideon (Man of God)
Parody of "Get it on (Bang a Gong)" performed by T. Rex and Power Station and written by Marc Bolan
(Judges 6-8)

Well, you heard about me
Get the facts -- go look back in the Judges
It's there that we'll meet, oh yeah
Well, I'm siftin' the wheat
I got to sneak off and hide when I want to
'Cause dirty creeps they rule my world

Gideon - man of God -- Gideon
Gideon - man of God -- Gideon

Well, I still got the call
I got it from some guy with a halo
Said build God an altar, yeah
Well, I'm an untrained youth but the dude
Said I'm s'posed to rule Israel
I heard him speak but still not sure
CHORUS

Well, I waited a while
And God sent proof with the dew on the cloth piece
And then it was dry, oh yeah
Well, I was still kind of scared
But God sent one last sign as I laid low
I heard a dream that cured my nerves
CHORUS

Well, you heard about me
Get the facts -- go look back in the Judges
Chapters 6 through 8, oh yeah
Will you glance at the book
You'll advance and meet Samson there and me
And other people who ruled my world

And meanwhile, I'm still singing

Judges 6:15
"But Lord," Gideon asked, "how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family."


That Daughter
Parody of "Black Water" performed by the Doobie Brothers and written by Patrick Simmons
(Genesis 29)

Well, I found me a wife and she's really good lookin'
Oh, man, she's pretty - she's all that I dreamed
That Rachel's somethin'
Her dad is real funky
But I wanna keep goin' on out just the same

For that daughter, keep on goin'
Missy, if I croon won't you keep on smilin' for me
For that daughter, keep on goin'
Yes, I simply swoon when you keep on smilin' for me
For that daughter, keep on goin'
Kiss your lippies soon, won't you keep on smilin' for me

Yeah, keep on strivin' for a wife
Gonna take everything
And her papa's gonna take seven years of my life
And I ain't stoppin' workin'
Cause I'm paying for her ring - a lot!

Well, it was Rachel I loved - don't mean no disrespect Leah
Just take my sweetheart and go out of town
Yeah, but Papa did some funky switchin' and then I married the wrong one
And I ain't blind, but everybody thinks I'm dumb

For that daughter, keep on goin'
Listen, it's your groom, won't you keep on smilin' for me
For that daughter, keep on goin'
This can just resume in a week of time, you know me
For that daughter, keep on goin'
Make your sister move over, keep on smilin' for me

Keep on strivin' for a wife
Gonna take everything, and I think it's gonna bring seven years more strife
But I ain't stoppin' workin'
Cause I'm paying for her ring - a lot!

I'd like have some fun and ditch this land
But your papa wants to make me strive again
Strive again, man, make me strive again
With your papa
Wanna scram since your daddy done me wrong

I'd like have some fun and ditch this land
But your papa wants to make me strive again
(Your papa done me wrong, he done me wrong, done me wrong)
(Yes, he done me wrong)
REPEAT
(C'mon Rachel! C'mon Rachel!)
(Leee-ah! Leee-ah!)

Genesis 29:18
Jacob was in love with Rachel and said, "I'll work for you seven years in
return for your younger daughter Rachel."


Trust Him
Parody of "Truckin'" performed by the Grateful Dead and written by Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lish & Robert Hunter
(Hebrews 11-12; Proverbs 3:5; Psalm 37:3; Romans 14:23; Ezra 8:21-23; Job 13:15; Judges 6:15)

Trust Him - got to keep from sin
Keep trustin' - baby, do not fret
To get a - really bles-sed life - just keep trustin' God

Heroes of Hebrews 11 those people became great
They followed the Lord and His voice and they all had the same faith
Your typical people involved in the Biblical mandate
Hangin' tough to see what the Lord would bring

Doubters - got a selfish streak
Useless - because they do their own thing
You know - you got to wait and see - the best is yet to be

Moses was back with the sheep when he'd meet with the true God
Noah he might have been thinkin' of buyin' a home
One of these days you know that God could just show up
Out of the blue with something to do all your own

Trust Him - like the true God says
Trust in Me and I will make you blest
You'll find your life ain't worth a dime - if you don't lay it down

Sometimes I might lose sight of one thing
All those guys were as scared as me
They made it and so can we - with a strong faith just in Him

What in the world ever became of "Sheep Dave"?
He lost his flock - but you know he isn't ashamed
Little ol' kid, fightin' and bein' so brave
All the men could see that David would reign

Trust Him - up above you'll go
In Heaven - and not to Hell below
It takes time - you need faith to go - just keep trustin' God

Gideon was scared and now he's a local hero
God had said, You're gonna win the war, Gideon
He tried some tests with fleece before the battle
But he still went to war and - I guess you knew that he'd win

Trust Him - now with fervency
Get up - time to go with Him
Start now - and get to where it is - the Lord wants you to be

If you're sick of foolin' around and liv'n' like the devil
You're tired of the devil and you wanna turn around
Confess, repent, devote your soul to Christ
Get out of the drawer and find what that Book's all about

Sometimes when life gets kind of lonely
Other eyes might be starin' at me
Waiting in eternity - what a lot of great witnesses

Trust Him - I'm a goin' home
Whoa whoa baby, up where I belong
Back home - sit by my master's throne
You get there trustin' God

Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.


Huge Slumber Party
Parody of "Use Somebody" performed and written by Kings of Leon
(Matthew 28:1-15, Mark 16:1-8, Luke 24:1-12, John 20:1-9)

All the Romans around now are lookin' down they're all asleep
And the place where He was laid has rolled up sheets
You know it's like a huge slumber party
You know it's like a huge slumber party

Someone has moved that old huge stone but how could this be
'Cause it must have weighed a ton and all could see
You know it's hard to lose someone's body
You know it's hard to lose someone's body
Someone broke through

All through the night while the eleven of us went off to weep
He waited for the break of morn without a peep
I hope it was a breakthrough moment
I know it was a breakthrough moment

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

All the Romans around now are lookin' down they're all asleep

Matthew 28:12-13
When the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money, telling them, "You are to say, 'His disciples came during the night and stole him away while we were asleep.'


No Shepherd Tonight
Parody of "No Sugar Tonight" performed by The Guess Who and written by Randy Bachman
(Matthew 26:31-35, Luke 22:31-34, 22:54-62)

Told the people three big lies
I was cornered, so I denied
Violent bloodshed frightened me
Sudden harshness - but I can see

No shepherd tonight as the flock leaves
No shepherd tonight while I grieve
No shepherd whose hand can guide me
No shepherd to comfort me
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah

He said, Simon you'll deny
My involvement in your life tonight
I said, Not me - no, not I
Now I've proven He was right

No shepherd tonight - I was cocky
No shepherd tonight - now I flee
No shepherd could stand the sight of me
No shepherd would want this sheep
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah

Matthew 26:31
Then Jesus told them, "This very night you will all fall away on account of me, for it is written: 'I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.'


New Other Nature
Parody of "New Mother Nature" performed by The Guess Who and written by Burton Cummings
(John 21:15-19, Acts 2, 12:1-17)

John could say it best but I met Jesus
And we talked about the things I said
I didn't have the faith or the guts till He said
I'd be shepherd and He wasn't dead
He's risen up now - the changes I've been through
With wonders, miracles, and signs
I know I did wrong, but I'm only strong because
The Spirit wasn't far behind, 'cause

It's the new other nature takin' over
It's the new splendid way He's changed us all
It's the new other nature takin' over
He's changin' us all, He's changin' us all

John could say no, but when James died that night
I took it like I lost a friend
But no use bawlin' 'cause then I was hauled in
To the prison and I feared the end
A glow filled the room and I saw an angel
He said, you're breakin' out tonight
I'm glad he took me but I thought at the time
It was a vision but I'm alive and
CHORUS

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!


People are Lazy
Parody of "People are Crazy" performed by Billy Currington and written by Bobby Braddock & Troy Jones
(John 3:18-21)

This old man and me
Were at the barber and we
We had him cut our hairs
And watched some NASCAR there
He talked of politics
With lots of rhetoric
I told him, I'm a Christian -- I have a wife and kids
I talked about God's grace
Then why's there Hell, he raged
And why on earth aren't all men saved?

And I said,
God has made it clear in His book, but people are lazy

He said, I'm not too sure
If there is any Lord
What makes you His disciple?
I said I've read the Bible
It taught me how the truth
Is never far from you,
What all we shouldn't do,
And how to be born anew
I squandered life till then
In blissful ignorance
So please don't think I'm silly, friend

When I say,
God has made it clear in His book, but people are lazy

NASCAR was due to end
I read the Bible with him
And then I stopped at Romans 10

And in God's funny way
I saw the whole plan change
From being a bit too hairy
I was a missionary
We read Ephesians 2
Saw lines he never knew
Said, Kid, you've read it well
But, me, I'm going to hell
But I got wise today
So if you think we can pray
Then I'd like to fix that right here - I need saved
'Cause I see
God has made it clear in His book but people are lazy
'Cause God has made it clear in His book that Jesus can save me
God has made it clear in His book but people are lazy

John 3:19-20
This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.


Ain't That a Miracle
Parody of "Pink Houses" performed and written by John Cougar Mellencamp
(John 9)

Well, there's a blind man - just a sad sack
Livin' in a blindness since birth
He's gonna demonstrate something to us from God
You know, 'cause Jesus just brought him the cure
He made some ointment with His spittle
Said "Clean it up" and He went off
And he looked up after he had bathed, shoutin'
"I can see everythin' real good - because of God"

Ah, but ain't that a miracle? Yes, indeed
Ain't that a miracle? Now he can see, baby!
Ain't that a miracle? Totally free, yeah!
Little things happen when you believe
Oh, yeah, when you believe!

Now when the young man met the teachers
They said "This is an impossible occasion
He's not the creepy man that was recently blind"
They said, "No, he must be some imitation!"
But he told them, "Yeah, I'm the one, sirs
The same boy who couldn't see till presently"
But just like everything else those old Pharisees
Just tried to explain it away
CHORUS (Oh, yes, they do for faithful folks like you and me)

Well, yes, Jesus can cure people
Some still say no, no, no
God'll work into some guy's life
And they chase you down if you call it a miracle - ooh yeah!
And they witness and excuse it
And say it's no big deal
But the simple man, baby, knows He still can heal
If it's God's will
CHORUS

John 9:30
The man answered, "Now that is remarkable! You don't know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes."

(Acts 18:1-4, 18:24-28; Romans 16:3-4; 1 Corinthians 16:19; 2 Timothy 4:19)

Renting an apartment
Riding round the world and making tents
Claudius ran him out Rome
He's the king who said they had to go
Hey, Aquila
Trying to preach God's Son
Up against the pagan pantheon
Hey, Aquila
With his wife Priscilla
Preaching 'bout Jesus and His hope and love
Oh, Aquila

Once he left Rome
We all met up in Corinth
Makin' tents, you know the way we sew
They've heard the facts
As the friends of this apostle
Goin' down to the hall to watch me preach
BREAK

Leavin' your home
Discardin' all your goods
Salvation on the road is enough for me
Aquila, my friend, though it's not a way that's easy
The Lord our God will see to all your needs

Do you still remember - we met in Acts 18?
Preaching Christ for nearly two long years
To Corinthians that believed
Hey! And you passed the test there in Ephesus
When even I'd left town
And Apollos you guys planted in the faith
REPEAT CHORUS

De de de de -
Aquila, my friend, though it's not a way that's easy
The Lord our God will see to all your needs

Whoa! Aquila!

*Note: Pronounce it "AK-wuh-luh" when singing this song. That's
how they pronounced it in the movie "A.D." and is one of two ways
of pronouncing it, although most preachers seem to pronounce it
"uh-KWIL-uh".

Acts 18:23
There he met a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, who had recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had ordered all the Jews to leave Rome. Paul went to see them, and
because he was a tentmaker as they were, he stayed and worked with them.

Mute, blind and lame
Can you smell or even feel?
Can your soul read braille?
You smile through a veil
Don't you think I can tell?

Did you get what I said?
Your hearing is gone
Can't actually see
Caught up in a cruel scheme
All covered with chains
Will you escape?
In second Corinthians four*
I believe Paul will explain

How I wish - how I wish you could hear
But so few lost souls in the devil's control
Clear up their ears
He's blinded all of them - they don't know
They're headin' south - and they can't steer
Wish you could hear

*NOTE: To sing this line correctly, pronounce and accentuate
it like this: "in SECond COR inthyuns FOUR" the original words
would be "a WALK-on PART in the WAR."

Jeremiah 6:10
To whom can I speak and give warning? Who will listen to me? Their ears are closed so they cannot hear. The word of the LORD is offensive to them;
they find no pleasure in it.


Death
Parody of "Beth" performed by KISS and written by Peter Criss & Stan Penridge
(1 Corinthians 15:50-56, Hosea 13:14, Romans 6:23)

Death I hear you callin'
But I can't come over right now
Me and the Lord are prayin'
And it just came time to bow
Guess you'll lose your powers
And I'll free my soul from you
The sting I feared is stolen
O, death, what can you do?
Death, what can you do?

The grave will be so empty
But now hell just ain't my home
I'm goin' somewhere else
Where the Lord's always on the throne
Yes, you'll lose your powers
And I feel my soul renewed
Your kingdom here has fallen
O, death, what can you do?
Death, what can you do?

Death, I know you owed me
But my hope's in Jesus Christ
And me and the Lord will be stayin' - alive
Alive

1 Corinthians 15:55-57
"Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?"
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But
thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.


It's All in God's Control
Parody of "It's Only Rock and Roll" by the Rolling Stones
(Romans 8:28-39; Matthew 6:26-34, 10:29-31; Luke 12:6-7, 24-32; Proverbs 13:12)

If I could stick God's plan on a chart it would fill up all of outer space
Would you realize that all things coincide that's
What it says in Romans 8:28
Ev-ery-thin' - fits right on in
The puzzle by design
Nothing is enough to keep me apart
From the great love of Christ - Jesus Christ
I said - I know - it's all in God's control - but I like it
I know - it's all in God's control
And I like it, like it, yes, I do

Oh, well, I like it, I like it, I like it
I said can't you read the epistle goin' to the Romans?

If I could pick my life all apart
Still would slide right into place
Shouldn't we just trust - our Lord - He made us
Would it help if we explained - it's pre-arranged
And when I get down deep in a hole
Feel likes there's mud on my face
Should I start a-cryin' - look at that horizon
Surely things are going to change - keep the faith

I said - I know - it's all in God's control - but I like it
I know - it's all in God's control
And I like it, like it, yes, I do

Oh, well, I like it, I like it, I like it
I said can't you see that this whole world depends on Him?
And do ya think that you're the only one who's been down?
There's better things in store you know they're comin' around
CHORUS

Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who
love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
