IN HEAVEN'S WOMB
By Cathy Evans 1991

In Heaven's womb, was born a baby king
A prince of ever ever everlasting peace
From Heaven's womb shall come one such little Child
He shall return as a Son over His own house
O ye bride, how shall ye be found

In Heaven's womb a seed begins to grow
And it was written of so very long ago
Jesus said that one such Child would come
As a second child to stand in His stead
O ye bride, how shall ye be found

Will we be found complaining and crying
Will we be found not searching the horizon
Will we be found not moving our mountains
O ye bride

In Heaven's womb the seed has rain
Oh bless the day He shall write His new name
From Heaven's womb there shall come one such little Child
He shall return as a Son over His own house

O ye bride, how shall we be found
O ye bride, how shall we be found
O ye bride, how shall we be found
O ye bride, how shall we be found
It is written in the Word, it is written in the Word . . .


THE REPO MAN
By Cathy Evans 1991

Hallelujah, the repo man is knockin' at my door
He's takin' all those precious things I had to have before
He's takin' back the Cadillac, I won't need it anymore
Cause where I'm bound, sweet Angel wings carry me forevermore

I'd rather get to heaven
Without my shiny car
Than to cruise down satan's boulevard
Where wheels melt like tar

Yo de oh ho, yo de oh ho
When I get to the gate
He's sure to have reserved for me
Gold limousines, first rate

Hallelujah, the bank card man is knockin' at my door
He's takin' back those pretty things I brought home from the store
He's takin' back the fancy gown, I won't need it anymore
Cause where I'm bound, the light will cover me forevermore

I'd rather get to heaven
In a worn out set of clothes
Than to wear the prettiest, fanciest dress to satan's hot abode

Yo de oh ho, yo de oh ho
When I get to the gate
He's sure to have my wedding gown
In a perfect size eight

Hallelujah, the repo man is back outside my door
He's takin' those newfangled things I had to have before
He's takin' the big screen TV, I won't need it anymore
Cause where I'm bound, the heavens will be plenty to explore

I'd rather get to heaven
Without my new TV
Than to watch the all night picture show in satan's company

Yo de oh ho, yo de oh ho
When I get to the gate
I'm sure to have a color view
With no commercial breaks
Yo de oh ho, yo de oh ho
When I get to the gate
Oh, Lord, what a sight to see
Eternity awaits
Eternity awaits


MY DAMASCUS
By Cathy Evans 1991

On the road to my Damascus
Bent on my mission
Oblivious to everything around
Yes, even I had heard of Jesus
Heard of the miracles
But, still it didn't register somehow

Until the light shone down
And then the voice sang out
And then my knees went down
O Ye daughter of Mine
Arise, open your eyes

On the road to my Damascus
I passed by many strangers
Some were standing, some were down
I paid no mind to the strangers
So bent on my mission
Oblivious to everything around

And then the light shone down
And then the voice sang out
And then my knees went down
O Ye daughter of Mine
Arise, open your eyes, arise, open your eyes

If you're on the road to your Damascus
Bent on your mission
Oblivious to everything around
You could be walking past some Angels
Without even knowing
Be careful how you trod
Watch for the light come down
Then hear voice sing out
Then watch your knees go down
O Ye daughters and sons
Arise, He has come
Arise, He has come


ONE ETERNAL LIFE
By Cathy Evans 1991

We are so blinded
In our causes and our money matters
Prayers for cars and lands and houses
All the things that just don't matter
Oh ye wash our eyes
Didn't He say to lose your life
Is the only way to gain your life

For there is only one eternal life
One in darkness, one in light
Forever we shall live in darkness or light
Choice is made in this life

Our prayers are earthbound
And filled up with our own desires
Hungry for satisfaction now
Angry if they don't work out
Oh ye wash our eyes
Didn't He say to lose your life
Is the only way to gain your life

For there is only one eternal life
One in darkness, one in light
Forever we shall live in darkness or light
Choice is made in this life

We are so busy, so busy
Wanting this and that and everything
Dreaming with imaginings and wishes
Our feet are anchored to the world
Oh ye wash our eyes
Didn't He say to lose your life
Is the only way to gain your life

For there is only one eternal life
One in darkness, one in light
Forever we shall live in darkness or light
Choice is made in this life

For there is only one eternal life
Choice is made while we live in this life . . .


THIS BLESSED NIGHT
By Cathy Evans 1991

The bread has come to feed the child
The child has come be the king
The King has come to take the bride
The bride is veiled in secrecy
And the King lifts up her veil
And the nations see her face
And the King takes her hand
And every star shall dance

And a host of angels sing
Glory to the King
This blessed night, this blessed night

The light shall come upon the lamb
The King shall say arise and stand
And the lion and the lamb
Shall lay down hand in hand
And a little child shall come
Holy, holy one

And a host of angels sing
Glory to the King
This blessed night, this blessed night
And a host of angels sing
Glory to the King
This blessed night, this blessed night, this blessed night, this blessed night

The Word has come unto all men
The hidden manna has been sent
And the song is on the wind
The song has been sent
Proclaiming His name, His holy, holy name

And a host of angels sing
Glory to the King
This blessed night, this blessed night
And a host of angels sing
Glory to the King
This blessed night, this blessed night . . .


THE BURNING SWORD
Vocalist Cathy Evans
Words & Music By Martha Miranda 1994

I want to run with the big White Horse
I want to thunder down the streets of gold
I want to touch the mighty hand
Of the Living Word, the Living Word
I want to stand in the heavenly City
Like a pillar, a great white stone
I want to be set on fire
By the Living Word, the Living Word

I want to see His face
I want to touch His hands
I want to bow before the Mighty One
I want to see His Father
I want to see the Lamb
I want to bow before the Living Word

I want to see the King in all His glory
I want to see him sit on His throne
I want to see the lightning flash
Of His burning Sword
His burning Sword!

I want to see His face
I want to touch His hands
I want to bow before the Mighty One
I want to see His Father
I want to see the Lamb
I want to bow before the Living Word

I want to see the King in all His glory
I want to see him sit on His throne
I want to see the lightning flash
Of His burning Sword
His burning Sword!

His burning, burning, burning, burning, Sword!
His burning, burning, burning, burning, Sword!


SING A SONG OF PRAISE
Lyrics By Cathy Evans/Music By Martha Miranda 1992

Sing a song of praise
To the living and the dead
Sing a song of praise
To the coming of the Lord
Sing a song of praise
To the shedding of the skin
Sing a song of praise, sing a song of praise to the name

What is this name that we have heard
Or have we heard a name
What is this song that we shall sing
Or have we sung a song
What is this name, what is this song
And how are we to know
Shall it make the bud to fall or make the vine, make the vine to grow

Sing a song of praise
To the living and the dead
Sing a song of praise
To the coming of the Lord
Sing a song of praise
To the shedding of the skin
Sing a song of praise, sing a song of praise to the name

What is this sound that we have heard
Or have we heard a sound
What is this word that we have heard
Or have we heard a word
What is this name, what is this song
And how are we to know
Shall it make the dead to rise or make the Kingdom, make the Kingdom come

Sing a song of praise
To the living and the dead
Sing a song of praise
To the coming of the Lord
Sing a song of praise
To the shedding of the skin
Sing a song of praise, sing a song of praise to the name
Sing a song of praise, sing a song of praise to the name

Father come, Shallum is glory, come Father, come
Father come, Shallum is power, come Father, come
For Thine is the Kingdom, come Father, come
For Thine is the power and glory, come Father, come
For Thy name is Shallum, come Father, come


GATHER YE ROUND
By Cathy Evans 1991

Children, gather ye round
For a tale shall be told
God's love is pouring down
And this tale is of love

Sing, sing the King is crowned
Sing, sing the King is crowned
All of the angels, all of the angels bow down, bow down

Brethren, gather ye round
For the trumpet has blown
The spirit is raining down
For the seed has been sown

Sing, sing the King is crowned
Sing, sing the King is crowned
All of the angels, all of the angels bow down, bow down
And all of heaven's angels bow down

Angels, gather ye round
For the time has come
The end of all sorrow is now
For the new name has come

Sing, sing the King is crowned
Sing, sing the King is crowned
All of the angels, all of the angels bow down, bow down
Sing, sing the King is crowned
Sing, sing the King is crowned
All of the angels, all of the angels bow down, bow down
All of the angels, all of the angels bow down, bow down


WE MUST EXAMINE OUR HEARTS
By Cathy Evans 1991

We want our house secure
We wanna have a little bit of love
We wanna be somebody, be somebody
And we wanna be in love
But do we wanna know You
Do we wanna know You
Do we wanna pick up the Cross
No matter what the cost

We must examine our hearts, we must examine our hearts
Dare we put Your sacrifice to shame
By asking You to solve our problems
And then we walk away
And leave You to do our work while we get on with life
Oh Father, oh Father, unveil our eyes

We want our payments made
We wanna take a long holiday
We want a silver lining, silver lining
And we wanna go so far
But do we wanna know You
Do we wanna know You
Do we wanna pick up the Cross
No matter what the cost

We must examine our hearts, we must examine our hearts
Dare we put Your sacrifice to shame
Father, Father, unveil our eyes today

We want a family to love
We ask for a little bit of help from above
We want recreation, recognition
But do we wanna know You
Do we wanna know You, do we wanna know You
Do we wanna pick up the Cross
No matter what the cost

We must examine our hearts, we must examine our hearts
Dare we put Your sacrifice to shame
By asking You to solve our problems
And then we walk away
And leave You to do our work while we get on with life
Oh Father, unveil our eyes
Oh Father, Father unveil our eyes
We must examine our hearts . . . .
What is our motivation
Do we wanna purify ourselves
Can we really say we have died to ourselves


THE GLORY OF LOVE
Lyrics By Cathy Evans/Music By Martha Miranda 1992

Winds blow, winds blow changes
Time cannot erase
Cause love grows, love grows daily
Love cannot turn away

The glory of love
Shall lead the way
The glory of love
Shall light the day

Cause love hears, love heals
A crying heart
Love cannot shut its ears
Cause love hears, love feels, love feels the pain
I say love, I say love cannot turn away

The glory of love
Love cannot hide
Oh, glory, glory
The glory of love
Shall light the day

Love cannot have peace while other men cry
Love cannot have ease while there is still strife
Love cannot hide away while the storms pass by
Love is not blind

Love gives, love gives
And asks for no return
Love sees the need
Cause love gives, love gives
And doesn't ask why
I say love, I say love cannot hide

The glory of love
Love cannot hide
Oh, glory, glory
The glory of love
