HOW BIG IS YOUR WORLD?
By Martha Miranda © 1993

How big is your world?
Is there room for me?
How big is your world?
Is there room for me?
How big is your world?

I'm just a run-a-way boy
Runnin' the city's streets
Looking for a crust of bread
And some shoes for my feet

I'm just a run-a-way girl
Runnin' the city's streets
Looking for a way to make it
Daddy beats mama and me

How big is your world?
Is there room for me?
How big is your world?
Is there room for me?
How big is your world?

I stole a car one day
Runnin' the city's streets
Now I'm lying in a prison cell
Infected from my head to my feet

No one is hearing my cry
Out there on the city's streets
They're too busy getting from there to here
Looking for a place to die

How big is your world?
Is there room for me?
How big is your world?
Is there room for me?
How big is your world?
Is there room for me?
How big is your world?
Is there room for me?

How big is your world?
Is there a room for me?
How big is your world?
Is there a room for me?
How big is your world?
Is there a room for me?
How big is your world?


THE BABY AWAKES
By Martha Miranda © 1993

Quietly the rains are falling
Quietly the winds are blowing
Quietly the time is passing
Sh. . . . . . .the Baby sleeps

Quietly the birds are singing
Quietly the angels descending
Quietly the WORD is sleeping
Sh. . . . . . .the Baby sleeps

Then a Woman cries in travail
And the Baby awakes
The trumpets begin to sound
The Baby awakes
The horses start to ride
The thunders start to roll
The Baby awakes
The Baby awakes

Quietly the dead are sleeping
Quietly the angels are reaping
Quietly Revelation awakes
The Manchild is born

Then a woman cries in travail
And the Baby awakes
The trumpets begin to sound
The Baby awakes
The horses start to ride
The thunders start to roll
The Baby awakes
The Baby awakes


THE GREAT WHITE DOVE
By Sonja Peterson and Martha Miranda © 1993

Great white dove you fill the sky above
With your great light of pure and holy love
Please come down and wash my heart
With the blood of JESUS that from sin I might depart

You fly so high way up in the sky
So pure and so white so glorious in flight
You've touched the hand of GOD O glory can it be
The holy Maranatha dove is flying over me

Sweet white dove your wonder fills my soul
With peace and love and joy beyond control
Give me words that I might speak of thee
To those that are around me my friends and family

You fly so high way up in the sky
So pure and so white so glorious in flight
You've touched the hand of GOD O glory can it be
The holy Maranatha dove is flying over me

She flies so high way up in GOD’s sky
So pure and so white so glorious in flight
I've touched the hand of GOD O glory can it be
The holy Maranatha dove is living inside of me

Pure white dove O let me ride on thee
Through the gates of GOD's holy City
To touch the hand of the LAMB who died for me
And bow before my Father throughout all eternity

She flies so high way up in GOD’s sky
So pure and so white so glorious in flight
I've touched the hand of GOD O glory can it be
The holy Maranatha dove is living inside of me


THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH
By Martha Miranda © 1993

Do you recall He said He'll come again?
Do you recall He said there will be an end?
Do you recall He said He'll send someone
To recall to you all those things JESUS said?

Do you recall there was a woman and her meal?
Do you recall there was a woman and a golden coin?
Do you recall He said He'll send someone
To recall to you all those things JESUS said?

The Spirit of TRUTH will recall all things
The Spirit of TRUTH will reveal all things
The Spirit of TRUTH will unveil all things
The Spirit of TRUTH will recall of those things

JESUS said
Do you recall a woman was seen in heaven?
Do you recall she will bear a MANCHILD?
Do you recall He said He'll send someone
To recall to you all those things JESUS said?

The Spirit of TRUTH will recall all things
The Spirit of TRUTH will reveal all things
The Spirit of TRUTH will unveil all things
All glory to the coming CHILD


TURN THE OTHER CHEEK
By Martha Miranda © 1993

When they smite you on the left cheek
Turn to them the right
These are the words JESUS said
Admonish a heretic, once or twice
These are the words, the Bible says

But I've got a mind, that JESUS was kind
Not wanting to offend anyone
So He said when they smite you turn the other cheek as well
And after that, brothers, then what?

Turn the other cheek, the behind cheek
And walk away, say so long
Turn the other cheek, the behind cheek
And let's get on with the song

Don't cast your pearls before the swine
They will only turn and rend you
Beware of the wolves that wear the sheep's clothing
These are the words JESUS said

Turn the other cheek, the behind cheek
And walk away, say so long
Turn the other cheek, the behind cheek
And let's get on with the song

Turn the other cheek, the behind cheek
And walk away, say so long
Turn the other cheek, the behind cheek
And shake their dust from your feet
Shake their dust!


TRAIN TO ETERNITY
By Sonja Peterson and Martha Miranda © 1993

I was at the train station
Waiting one dark night
Enduring cold and rain
Until my train came into sight
And then I saw an angel
And she spoke these words to me
The faithful will endure everything
For the train to eternity

So if you're looking for that Holy City
You must wait and watch
And don't go chasing rainbows on the side
The conductor Maranatha
Is the one who has the ticket
For that train you must ride

I need to tell you plain she warned
About the wait ahead
Men will try to lure you
But remember what I said
You owe the world nothing
It will only bring you down
If you want to reach that City
You'll let no man take your crown

If you're looking for that Holy City
You must wait and watch
And don't go chasing rainbows on the side
The conductor Maranatha
Is the one who has the ticket
For that train you must ride

Well I hear the train acomin'
And it's Holy City bound
There's lightning in its movements
The wheels thunder as they sound
We can't let the cries of those
Who will not get on board
Make us miss the train to glory
And our heavenly reward

If you're looking for the Holy City
You must wait and watch
And don't go chasing rainbows on the side
The conductor Maranatha
Is the one who has the ticket
For that train you must ride


YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE LAST OF ME
By Martha Miranda © 1993

LET THE WAVES ROLL
By Martha Miranda © 1970

I've built my house on a solid rock
Let the waves roll on over me
My house is not on sinking sand
Let the waves roll on over me

Let the waves roll on over
Gonna let the waves roll on over
Gonna let the waves roll on over, over me, o-o-o-o
I'm gonna let the waves roll on over
Gonna let the waves roll on over
Gonna let the waves roll on over, over me, over me

I've headed my feet for the streets of gold
Though I pass through an angry sea
I'm gonna see my Jesus and touch His hand
Ain't no devil gonna' hinder me

There's nothing in this rotten world
But death and sorrow and pain
But we're gonna' see our Mighty King
Put on His crown and reign. TILL THEN!

Let the waves roll on over
Gonna let the waves roll on over
Gonna let the waves roll on over, over me, o-o-o-o
Im gonna let the waves roll on over
Gonna let the waves roll on over
Gonna let the waves roll on over, over me, over me
Gonna let the waves roll
Gonna let the waves roll
Gonna let the waves roll
Gonna let the waves roll . . . . . . . .


FOOTPRINTS ON THE PAGES
By Martha Miranda © 1993

Footprints on the pages of time
Footprints that should have been mine
Where my cross was carried by someone else
Footprints on the pages of time

Nail prints on the pages of time
Nail prints that should have been mine
Nailed to the hands of someone else
Nail prints on the pages of time

It is time for me to leave my
Footprints in the sand
It is time the pages fill with
The scars in my hands
It is time I bear the cross
It is time I take the loss
It is time I lay my life down
On the pages of time

Pages of time, holy pages
Filled with the prophets
And the martyred slain
Pages of time, holy pages
Filled with the prophets
And the martyred slain
It is time I bear the cross
It is time I take the loss
It is time I lay my life down
On the pages of time!

Born the seeds of a Woman
