Track Name: Native American Praise (Psalm 100)
Native American Praise (Psalm 100)
By Kenneth E. Robertson


Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

(Descant 1)
I will enter His gates with thanksgiving in my heart
I will enter His courts with praise
I will give thanks to Him and praise His Name
For the Lord is good and His love endures forever

(Descant 2)
Shout for joy to the Lord all the earth
Serve the Lord with gladness and song
Come before Him with joyful songs
Know that the Lord He is good

(Descant 1)
I will enter His gates with thanksgiving in my heart
I will enter His courts with praise
I will give thanks to Him and praise His Name
For the Lord is good and His love endures forever

(Descant 3)
It is He who has made us and we are His
We are His people, the sheep of His pasture
For the Lord is good, His love endures
He is faithful through all generations

(Descant 1)
I will enter His gates with thanksgiving in my heart
I will enter His courts with praise
I will give thanks to Him and praise His Name
For the Lord is good and His love endures forever
Track Name: I Just Keep Falling
I Just Keep Falling
Mark. D. Sloan

This old dirt path is narrow and steep
Stones litter the ground all around
Breaking a sweat and my muscles ache
These boulders seem too high to climb
Taking one step and sliding back two
There’s not many people here to see me through
Pulling a load, fell like I’m dragging them along
Stumbling over the stones as I go along

(Chorus)
And I Just Keep Falling, I can’t stop falling
Put a stone in my path and I’ll stumble every time
He picks me up and lets me know that it’s alright
And I Just Keep Falling, I can’t stop falling
Put a stone in my path and I’ll stumble every time
He picks me up and lets me know that I’m not blind

From here I can see the other road
Wide and paved an easy way to go
People all around night and day
Not knowing that the road they’re on
Will lead them astray
Running and jumping, laughing and at play
Blinded by the fun that they’re having all day
They can’t see the end of the road they’re on
They’re not even looking, they’re just going along

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
I can see the top, but I can’t make it on my own
His hand is what I need to pull me along
He forgives me every time, His grace is all I need
So I’ll keep taking that extra step
Until He comes and rescues me

(repeat chorus)
Track Name: Bigger Cup
Bigger Cup
Kenneth E. Robertson

(Verse 1)
Got outta bed this mornin’, Put my feet on the floor
Air conditioner was working, It was sunny outdoors
Opened up the fridge, Food was waitin’ for me
Got a shave and shower, Sweet smellin’ toiletry

(Verse 2)
I jumped into the car, Headed down to my job
Man I like what I’m doin’, And my partner named Bob
We make a pretty fair livin’, Tho’ we’ll never be rich as Bill Gates
Wouldn’t trade Bill for nuthin’, ‘Cause my life it's goin’ great


(Verse 3)
Got a family that loves me, got a pastor who’s kind
Got a Sunday school teacher feeds my soul and my mind
When I want to watch my Pacers, I turn on the TV
Gotta keep payin’ my tithe, ‘cause the Lord’s been good to me

(Chorus)
I don’t understand it,
My life just keeps lookin’ up
If He keeps pourin’ out all these blessings
I’m gonna ask Him for a BIGGER CUP

Lawd, if I can’t have a bigger cup, can I at least get a saucer?
Track Name: Table Grace
Table Grace
by Kenneth E. Robertson

Dropped by his nurse, the age of five
Sustained a wound that crippled both his feet for life
His dad a prince, grandfather king
Both killed in war, his life without a signet ring
His home a desert ghost town, no riches to behold
Sheltered by another, pitied life so hard, so cold

A soldier’s knock, upon the door
At last they’d come, his worst fear now their wrath and sword
Eliminate the rival clan
The war was done, the king had found his wanted man
His one and only son was all the ransom he had left
The best that he could hope for was a quick and painless death

Lift
As he fell in fearful reverence before the mighty king
The unexpected words changed everything

Chorus
In remembrance of your father who was my best friend, you see
I deed you his inheritance, caretakers and employees
In my love for him among my sons you’ll find a special place
Won’t you join us here for supper and enjoy our Table Grace

2nd Lift
Beneath that pure white tablecloth battered feet would disappear
Taking with them all the empty pain and lonely years

(Repeat Chorus)

Another day, the end of time
The Lord has promised, kept alive in song and rhyme
We’re waiting here, but looking there
Sometimes it seems so far we’re tempted not to care

3rd Lift
But on that day we’ll kneel before the King
And strain to hear the words we hope will change our everything

2nd Chorus
In remembrance of my Son, Who was your best friend, you see
Partake of His inheritance, take your rest and be at peace
And in My love for Him We’ve made for you a very special place
Won’t you join us here for supper and enjoy Our Table Grace

Our Table Grace
Track Name: Destroyer
Destroyer
Kenneth E. Robertson

(Intro)
The Holy Spirit was movin'
Convicting men of sin
The whole church started growin'
Then a dark force strolled right in

(Verse 1)
Destroyer, walkin’ in our midst
Destroyer, sittin’ on your pew
Sent for infiltration, Deceiving the elect
Spread lies and confusion
The church will soon be wrecked

(Verse 2)
Destroyer, Legion in our midst
Destroyer, offense unto the Lord
Judgment and destruction, Blood dripping from his lips
Breaks the faith of children, The pastor’s in his grip

(Bridge 1)
Fasting, prayer and courage; alert maturity
Will rebuke and send it packing
Protect restore our peace

(Verse 3)
Destroyer, wants to hold my hand
Destroyer, someone take a stand
We’ve got to rout this fakir, This wolf among the flock
Sinks his teeth into your bones, The work of God is blocked

(Verse 4)
Destroyer, lies and flattery
Destroyer, yes man to your face
Behind the scenes he’s knifing, God’s children in the back
Professes faith in public, And yet his heart is black

(Bridge 2)
Don't try to smooth it over, No warfare in your code
When you fail to test the spirits, Your church will soon implode

(Verse 5 to Finish)
Destroyer, Legion maybe more
Destroyer, slithered in the door
Sent for infiltration, Deceiving the elect
Spread lies and confusion, The church will soon be wrecked
Destroyer!
Track Name: Help From The Mountains
Instrumental, no Lyrics
Track Name: Old Rough Wood
Old Rough Wood
Mark D. Sloan

I came into this world
On a bright starlit night
The wise men they rejoiced
Yeah they rejoiced at the sight
My cradle a simple manger
No room in the inn for me

My bed was Old Rough Wood
And I laid there in the hay
My bed was Old Rough Wood
Where the animals fed that day

I live in this world
A craftsman is my trade
And with my father I’ve crafted
Old Rough Wood of the day
He told me of the night I was born
And how his spirit was torn in two

My bed was Old Rough Wood
And I laid there in the hay
My bed was Old Rough Wood
Where the animals fed that day

My time here on earth is near
They’re gonna crucify me
It’ll all be worth it
If in the end they’ll just believe

Now I hang on a cross
With murders and thieves
My bed of Old Rough Wood
Is now a cross where I bleed
Track Name: We Ain't Too Poor to Pay Attention
(We Ain’t) TOO POOR TO PAY ATTENTION
By Kenneth E. Robertson

Chorus
Do we not know, have we not heard
We ain’t Too Poor To Pay Attention
To the truth in Gods’ Word
(repeat)

Where were you when I hung the stars in place?
Why you got them worry lines all over your face
He's still in charge no matter what you see
Look up into the sky and set your spirit free

(Repeat Chorus)

Who by frettin’ adds an inch to his height
Why we toss and turn and groan and sigh all night
He’s still in charge no matter what we see
Leave your burdens at His altar set your spirit free

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Just Stand
JUST STAND
Mark D. Sloan

Let them look, let them stare
And whisper into another's ear
They’ll knock you down, they’ll spread the blame
They'll even talk about your name

(Chorus 1)
JUST STAND and then walk right on through
JUST STAND don't let them bother you
JUST STAND there's nothin' they can do
When you let Him fight for you

Let them notice, let them flare
Something's different with you
They’re all wading through the gossip pool
They wonder how you do

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)
It takes a lot of trust
It takes a lot of faith
The times get tough
And it's not easy

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Going Home
GOING HOME
By Kenneth E. Robertson

In the after-midnight morning, on a long drive from Chicago
I asked the Lord to help me write a simple little song
‘Cause the music in my iPod had been played back once too often
And the radio was a-wailin’ out a tune both sad and long
Then my mind drifts back to where I’d like to be
Where the sweet well water tastes so good to me

(Chorus)
GOING HOME, GOING HOME
Soon as I can put behind these weary miles
GOING HOME, GOING HOME
Where my mom will hug and kiss me
And the dog still begs for pettin’
And my dad’ll be there a-waitin’ with a smile.

In a house on two small acres, down a blacktop turned to gravel
Are my roots and all the memories I’ve learned to hold so near
‘Cause my life gets complicated when I try to fly with eagles
And I’m workin’ in the city when I’d rather be watchin’ deer
Then my mind goes back to where I’d like to be
Where the simple country cookin’s temptin’ me

Repeat Chorus

In a world where homes are broken and a kid’s life ain’t so happy
From the side effects a better life with chemistry can bring
I can never thank my parents for the memories that they gave me
And the dreams I wish for others now I try my best to sing
For the children have no memories of home
How they must feel so abandoned and alone

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Old Things New
An instrumental inspired by II Corinthians 5:17
Track Name: Stay Plugged In
Stay Plugged In
Kenneth E. Robertson

Well My yoke is easy and My burden is light
But you gotta Stay Plugged In
Yeah My yoke is easy and My burden is light
But you gotta Stay Plugged In
Plugged in, Stay Plugged In

I am the vine, you are the branch
But you gotta Stay Plugged In
I am the vine, you are the branch
But you gotta Stay Plugged In
Plugged in, Stay Plugged In

Bridge 1
So come unto Me and you will find rest
For My heart is lowly and meek
My yoke is easy and the burden is light
You gotta Stay Plugged In all week

I am the vine, you are the branch
But you gotta Stay Plugged In
I am the vine, you are the branch
But you gotta Stay Plugged In
Plugged in, Stay Plugged In

Bridge 2
If you don’t come to Me, then please don’t go
Sour fruit is all you'll yield
Yes the harvest is ripe, but I need joyful workers
Laboring out in My fields

Well My yoke is easy and My burden is light
But you gotta Stay Plugged In
Yeah My yoke is easy and My burden is light
But you gotta Stay Plugged In
Plugged in, Stay Plugged In
