    side 1

  • 1 - give it a try


    Ooooo
    Ooo-Ooo-Oo-oo-oo
    Ooo-Ooo-Oo-oo-oo
    Ooo-Ooo-Oo-oo-oo
    Ooo-Ooo-Hey,

    is that you I see
    it's been a long time
    do you have some time for me

    Hey,
    what's that sad look on your face
    I do believe it's a simple thing to trace

    Oh,
    remember when you were young
    life was beautiful there were songs waiting to be sung

    Refrain:
    But your pride would not give my friend
    you could not break it down
    you're a self made man my friend

    Oh,
    if only you would have known
    in your search for life you had been wasting your own
    and now, now that you've come to the end
    now you're willing to bend and see yourself as your are

    chorus:
    Why don't you give it a try with Jesus
    I think you'll find that he's all that you need
    Why don't you give it a try with Jesus
    just follow that man wherever he leads
    (2x last time followed by
    Ooo-Ooo-Oo-oo-oo
    Ooo-Ooo-Oo-oo-oo)

    Refrain:
    Now the best thing that you can do
    is to come to grips
    with the fact that you are not what you think you are
    cuz you're a man who needs a hand

    Oh,
    throw away your pride
    open wide the doors let Jesus inside
    And then His peace will come to your soul
    His presence will bring you joy
    His life will make you whole
    (chorus)

  • 2 - why can't they realize?


    La la la
    la la la
    la la la
    la laaaa

    When I think of those - living without you
    and the lonliness that shows - in the smiles that are untrue
    and when I see the world around me - falling all to pieces
    I just stop and cry because they - can't find the reasons for living
    they don't know - I gotta show a little more love

    Everyone is searching - for a true experience
    but why can't they realize - that only you can give meaning
    And oh my heart goes out to them - finding nothing but emptiness
    dying sorrowing needlessly - finding only confusion ohhh
    Jesus Chist - I thank you Lord - for giving your salvation for
    giving me the hope - of knowing how to cope
    with the things - of the world - that I can't understand
    (2x)

    La la la
    la la la
    la la la
    laaaaa

  • 3 - judgement


    Chorus:
    God is watching you - and everything you do
    don't turn your back on Him - leave your sin - now's the time to choo-ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ose
    God is always right - He never makes mistakes
    He said right in His word He's going to judge you
    God is going to cut you down
    [(last time)
    I wanna tell you now - God is going to cut you down
    He said he would now - God is going to cut you down]

    MmmHmmm - Oh Yeah
    MmmHmmm
    You hear some people saying - they don't really care
    God is easy going - He's got things things to do far away somewhere
    (Chorus)

    MmmHmmm - MmmHmmm
    Makes no difference who you are - friendly guy next door
    Down and out or fancy movie star - Comes a time
    time does fly - you will call Him Lord
    (Chorus)

  • 4 - i got you


    some time ago - the shadow of despair fell over me -
    the world i knew - turned dark and cold -
    you took me in and the warmth of your love surrounded me
    and since that time - i've never been the same

    chorus:
    cuz without you my life would be a song without a melody -
    without you - my life would be a poem without words -
    can't you see that my existance entirely depends -
    on you - yes it's true - but i got you

    because of you - my days are brighter than they were before -
    i see the sunshine even in the rain - you are the one -
    i have given you my life - and you know - that its -
    the best thing - that i have ever done

    (chorus interlude chorus)

  • 5 - how can i know


    How can I know that my sins are forgiven
    and that Jesus lives in my heart?
    I said how can I know that salvation is mine
    how can I know that everlasting life and joy abide?

    Chorus:
    I can know through the promise that He gave (4x)

    Oh and how can I know that He heals when I pray to Him,
    and how can I know that He cares?
    I said how can I know that He loves you and me
    how can I know that He's with me and will help me find the way?

    Refrain:
    God has promised to hear my prayers
    He has promised to take my cares
    God Himself is the source of love
    He has promised to be my guide
    God has promised to hear my prayers
    He has promised to take my cares
    God Himself is the source of love
    He has promised to show the way
    (Chorus)

    I can know I can know that my sins are forgiven
    and that Jesus lives in my heart
    I can know I can know that salvation is mine
    yes I can know that everlasting life and joy abide?
    (Chorus)
