CELEBRATE THIS HEARTBEAT
I'm gonna celebrate this heartbeat Cause it just might be my last Everyday is a gift from the Lord on high And they all go by so fast I'm not shy, I won't hide The happy way I feel inside There's a love light shining down on me And it's true, I can't lie There is more to life than meets the eye So I want to live each moment faithfully, yeah I'm gonna celebrate this heartbeat Cause it just might be my last Everyday is a gift from the Lord on high and they all go by so fast So many people drithing in a dream I only want to live the real thing I'm gonna celebrate this heartbeat And keep movin' on Look toward tomorrow cause the past is gone If I laugh, it's no crime I've got great news on my mind It's a hope that never fades way Now I don't understand All the mysteries of the master plan But I'm sure the Master does So that's okay, yeah I'm gonna celebrate this heartbeat Cause it just might be my last Everyday is a gift from the Lord on high And they all go by so fast So many people drifting in the night (Lonely people in the night) I'm gonna keep the Morning Star in sight, alright Celebrate this heartbeat and keep movin' on Look toward tomorrow cause the past is gone This world is in so much trouble All of the sadness can break you down But if you're ever going to change it You must show them the love you've found Hey now, everyday is a gift from the Lord on high And they all go by so fast So many people drifting in a dream (Find the life that love can bring) I only want to live the real thing I'm gonna celebrate this heartbeat And keep movin' on Look toward tomorrow cause The past is gone I said the past is gone Yeah, you know the past is gone Oh yeah, oh, the past is gone Movin' on Written By Randy Stonehill © Copyright 1984 by Stonehillian Music & Word Music (a division of Word, Inc.)

MODERN MYTH
I don't know why we treat this life like a creation of our own design Pretending everything is under control when actually, we're running blind I hear that we're the highest form of life in all the universe That's pretty easy to say as long as you don't check it out first (chorus) And it's only a modern myth It's nothin' but a pack of lies And we wind up lookin' like a bunch of clowns by thinking that we're wise And there's always gonna be some guy tryin' to sell you the Brooklyn Bridge Don't be a chump. Come on, wake up. Remember this: it's just a modern myth I hear that people are basically good and everything will turn out okay I guess that fellas like Adolf Hitler just must have had a real bad day Now you can choose to disagree but one thing is very clear We'd all be pretty depressed if we got to heaven and it was just like here (repeat chorus) I hear it said that the Lord is dead and faith is only a crutch of the weak That must sound odd to the ears of God, Who's given us the tongues to speak Now you can make up fairy tales until your face is blue But that won't alter the simple fact that what is true is true (repeat chorus) Written By Randy Stonehill © Copyright 1984 by Stonehillian Music & Word Music (a division of Word, Inc.)

WHO WILL SAVE THE CHILDREN
Cry for all the innocent ones born into a world that's lost its heart For those who never learn to dream becuase their hope is crushed before they can start And we shake our fists at the air and say, "If God is love, how can this be fair?" But we are His hands We are His voice We are the ones who must make the choice And if it isn't now, tell me when? If it isn't you, then tell me who will save the children? Who will save the children? We count our blessings one by one yet we have forgotten how to give It seems that we don't want to face all the hungry and homeless who sturggle to live But heaven is watching tonight tugging at our hearts to do what's right And we are His hands We are His voice We are the ones who must make the choice And if it isn't you, then tell me who will save the children? Who will save the children? As we observe them through our T.V. screens they seem so distant and unreal But they bleed like we bleed And they feel what we feel Oh, save the children Save the children Save the children Now we decide that nothing can change and throw up our hands in numb despair And we lost a piece of our souls by teaching ourselves just how not to care But Christ would have gone to the cross just to save one child from being lost And we are His hands We are His voice We are the ones who must make the choice And it must be now There's no time to waste It must be you No one can take your place Can't you see that only we Can save the children Save the children Save the children Please, save the children Written By Randy Stonehill © Copyright 1984 by Stonehillian Music & Word Music (a division of Word, Inc.)

WHEN I LOOK TO THE MOUNTAINS
When I look to the mountains I can see you there In the wild churning ocean I can feel you there In the warm summer breeze Your voice is in the air Oh my Lord You reflect Your perfection In the smallest leaf In your vastness You render time A captured thief I stand naked before You In amazed belief Oh my Lord Oh my Lord my Creator You have captured my heart With a love I can never repay And I fall to my knees to try to Tell You what words could never say Though You hold all creation In Your holy hands Though the world is as weightless As a grain of sand Still You told me my name And gave me strength to stand Oh my Lord (repeat chorus) (repeat first verse) Written By Randy Stonehill © Copyright 1984 by Stonehillian Music & Word Music (a division of Word, Inc.)

ALLISON
Allison, we've been friends a long, long, time You know that I love you and I've got to say Allison, you've been heavy on my mind We both know that something is wrong All the weight you carry on your shoulders Can't you see it's bound to break your heart There you go, wishing on a falling star Now it's time to get a hold of something real Allison, until you find out who you are don't you know you're fooling yourself everyone gets scared of taking chances But we all lose until we let love in Allison, let love in This world can blind you with golden dreams that turn to ashes and rust when God was waiting with a perfect gift you left lying there in the dust Allison, give yourself a real chance I know that the morning's gonna shine on you Allison, love can teach your heart to dance It can be so easy to do When you're finally tired From all your running leave the past behind and come on home You can come on home Come on home Come on home Written By Randy Stonehill © Copyright 1984 by Stonehillian Music & Word Music (a division of Word, Inc.)

STOP THE WORLD
Well it's okay to murder babies But we really ought to save the whales We're putting crimials in office Cause it's way too crowded in the jails T.V. is our teacher now The schools are overrun by thugs And children skip their innocence and graduate to sex and drugs Right is wrong and wrong is right White is black and black is white I think I just lost my appetite Stop the world I want to get off Stop the world I want to get off This is too weird for me Stop the world I want to get off I get the defininte impression That this isn't how it's meant to be No, no Fear is taking over Anxiety is on the rise Well you can feel it in the air You can see it in your neighbor's eyes The working man is deperate He can't support his family And we could pull the nation Out of debt for what We spend on locks and keys And even suburbia is under attack They're all buying handguns Trying to fight back There's a vigilante picnic In the cul de sac Stop the world I want to get off Stop the world I want to get off This is too wierd for me Stop the world I want to get off I've just got to find a planet Where they're intersted in sanity Hey yeah I wish I had some spaceman gear I swear I'd fly away from here I cry to God this fervent prayer "Oh, please, just take me anywhere Don't leave me here" We take our loftiest intentions And engrave them all neatly in stone And once they're safely up there We'd prefer that they just leave us alone Cause it's the law of the jungle With distinctly carnivorous vibes Yeah, we may dress up in tuxedos But we function like germanic tribes It's the age old sin in a modern day From the club of Cain to the laser ray But now we can blow everybody away Stop the world I want to get off Stop the world I want to get off This is too weird, a little too weird Stop the world I want to get off I've just got to find a planet Well I've just got to find a planet Got to find a planet where They're interested in sanity yeah, yeah Somebody stop the world Ooh yeah Somebody stop the world Written By Randy Stonehill © Copyright 1984 by Stonehillian Music & Word Music (a division of Word, Inc.)

I'LL REMEMBER YOU
I'll remember you No this isn't just another town I'm passing through Though I might not know you all by name the way I feel is still the same I believe the Lord has brought me here and I'm glad I came I'll remember you And I'm sorry that the time we have is almost through But the special thing that means so much is knowing we can really touch I can tell just by your faces that you feel it too What happens to our lives? They slip away so fast We turn around to find we're older Our hearts are crying out for something that will last If you listen now there's a Still, Small Voice at your shoulder And before I go there is something very special that you all should know For the Lord of love is here with you And He'll fill your hearts if you ask Him to And I'm proud to be the one to share the happy news I'll remember you And He'll remember you I will remember you Written By Randy Stonehill © Copyright 1984 by Stonehillian Music & Word Music (a division of Word, Inc.)
