And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you. (ROM 8:11)

If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. (1 JOHN 4:15)

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. (1 JOHN 3:16)

When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say the Son of Man is?"
They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets."
"But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?"
Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
Jesus replied, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hell will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." Then he warned his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Christ. (MATT 16:13-20)

Then Jesus said to his disciples, "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done. (MATT 16:24-27)

"Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown along the path. The one who received the seed that fell on rocky places is the man who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. But since he has no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away. The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful. But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown." (MATT 13:18-23)

His Name Is Jesus
©2003 Alan Gustin

He is my Savior
His name is Wonderful
He comes to me at night when I am crying
He holds my hand when He hears me sighing

His name is Holy
His name is higher than all the angels
He is a holy Lamb, a living Sacrifice
His name is (what’s His name?)
His name is (what’s His name?)
His name is (what’s His name?)
His name is Jesus

He bears my load
When I must climb the mountain
He lifts me up when I fall from the Father
He is the light that shines for me
When I’m surrounded by darkness
He is my comfort, my strength
My joy and my all

Chorus

Who can walk on water?
Who can cause the blind to see?
Who’s the only One
Who loves me through my shame?
Who has died to save me?
Who has suffered so much pain?
And whose awesome words
Keep running through my brain?

He is my Savior
His name is Wonderful
He comes to me at night when I am crying
He holds my hand when He hears me sighing

His name is Holy
His name is higher than all the angels
He is a holy Lamb, a living Sacrifice
His name is (what’s His name?)
His name is (what’s His name?)
His name is (what’s His name?)
His name is Jesus


Things Go Better With God
© 2003 Alan Gustin

Well I hear down that road
There’s a party going on
They’re dancing and singing
And carrying on
Well they’re making music
I can hear the sound
It’s a celebration
The best in town

Hey, ho, one thing you got to know
Things go better with God
Hey, ho, one thing you got to know
Things go better with God

Give me some rockin’ praise
Go to a higher place
Where I can see my Jesus
And maybe touch His robe
Where we can soar like eagles
Just raise your hands to the sky
It’s a celebration
Lifting His name on high

Hey, ho, one thing you got to know
Things go better with God
Hey, ho, one thing you got to know
Things go better with God

Late Bloomers
© 2003 Alan Gustin

It seems you missed the gravy train
You say you let it pass you by again
You held the ticket in your hand
But you’re afraid to take that ride

The years keep rolling by
That gravy train don’t come around no more
Regretting all the pain inside
Just forget about that pot of golden dreams

Don’t quit
Around the corner awaits
Some new possibility
Don’t quit
We’re just late bloomers
You and I

Can you remember long ago
You took a turn and headed down that road
Now it seems a million miles have come and gone
You don’t know how to find your way back home

Don’t quit
Around the corner awaits
Some new possibility
Don’t quit
We’re just late bloomers
You and I

Rain
©2003 Alan Gustin

There was a day in summer long ago
The grass was high with flowers in the meadow
The world was yours then
The sun was shining upon everything

Out of the corner of your mind you saw
A little cloud on the horizon
Bringing shadows
And an eerie wind that turns the leaves
You wish the cloud would just pass by
And leave you all alone to drink the sunshine

Now and then a little rain is going to fall

A time of aching holds you in its grasp
A looping video of summer days past
It’s all a whirlwind
A thousand memories all flood your senses

You wish you didn’t know some things you know
But at the same time you embrace them
Haunting, bittersweet
You want to but you can’t let go
One day your sky will turn deep blue
He’ll part the clouds so you can see it clearly

Now and then a little rain is going to fall

Hi Baby Girl
©2003 Alan Gustin

When I saw my baby girl
For the first time in this world
My heart just melted
Down around my feet

When I held my baby girl
In my arms so small and frail
I knew that I’d be
In love forever more

One day will come when you will fly
You’ll leave to capture all your dreams
But when I see you I will say…

Hi baby girl, baby girl
I’m singin’ high baby girl, baby girl

Little girl, you are the center of my world
