ONE LIFE IS NOT ENOUGH
Music By Cathy Evans © 1994
Lyrics By Martha Miranda © 1995

One life to love you is not enough for me
One love to give you is not enough for me
Eternity to share will be all right for me
To love you forever will be perfect for me
If I can just believe forever is there
For you and for me

One life to know you
Is not enough for me
One life to sacrifice to you
Just cannot be
Enough to show the love
That's in my heart for you
Forever is there for you and
Me if I can dare to believe

If I can just believe it's there
for you and for me
Forever together , forever together
forever together for you and me

One life to love you
Is not enough for me
One life to give you
Is not enough for me
Eternity to share
Will be just right for me
To love you forever
Will be perfect for me
If I can just believe forever
Is there for you and for me

Forever is just right for me
Forever is just right for me
Oh Lord what words can I say
To tell you I want forever
To say I love you
O I need you forever
I need forever to tell you
I love you

One life is not enough to give you
One life is not enough to love you
It's not enough
Not enough
One life is not enough
not enough at all


COME HOLY SPIRIT
By Martha Miranda © 1994

Holy Spirit God divine
Sent the Saviour down
He walked upon the sea of Galilee
Men did not want Him
Death could not hold Him

Like a mighty river
Did the Spirit flow down
From the Father through the Son
Children just adored Him
Kings bowed before Him

Come Holy Spirit
Come Holy Spirit down
Come Holy Spirit
Fill up the empty well

Peter fished all night long
Peter fished till the break of dawn
All night long he fished
All night long he threw the net
Into the empty water

All night long Peter drew the net empty
From the water
Peter just would not give up
Came the break of dawn
The rising of the sun

Down came the Holy Spirit
Down came the Spirit to the well
Come Holy Spirit fill up the well
Come Holy Spirit fill up the well
Come Holy Spirit fill up the well
Come Holy Spirit fill up the well

Fill up the well
Fill up the well
Fill up the well
Fill up the well


CROWN FOR MAMA
By Martha Miranda © 1994

Let there be a special crown for Mama
Let there be a special place just for Mama
Let there be a special flower just for Mama
For Mama bore a special cross for me
Let there be a way to tell her I love her
Let there be a way to tell her I'm so sorry
Let there be a way to tell her
I couldn't have made it without her love
Let there be a special crown just for Mama

JESUS smiled on me in Mama
JESUS held my hand in Mama
JESUS loved me through the storms in Mama
Let there be a special crown just for Mama

LORD you know all the times I hurt her
LORD you know all the times I failed her
LORD you know I can't undo the things I've done
My Mama bore a special cross for me
When I cried Mama always cried too
When I hurt Mama always hurt too
When I was in darkness
She was the sunshine in the dark night
Let there be a special crown just for Mama

JESUS smiled on me in Mama
JESUS held my hand in Mama
JESUS loved me through the storms in Mama
Let there be a special crown just for Mama
Let there be a special crown just for Mama
Mama


A WOMAN’S PRAYER
By Sonja Peterson & Martha Miranda © 1994

Holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lamb of God
Holy is His name Shallum
Maranatha

Father I hear your winds tonight
I hear all your angels taking flight
I come to you with something special on my mind
Dear Father I wonder if you know
All the trouble I'm having down here below
I'm just a woman, just a woman in love with you

Now I'm not asking for special favors, Lord
Just the power that's come down in your word
I want to glorify you, and overcome my shackles of sin
The power coming in the Kingdom of God
Given to those washed in Jesus blood
Tell me Father isn't this power for your women too
Holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lamb of God
Holy is His name Shallum
Maranatha

Holy Angels won't you carry my prayer
To the throne of my Father that He might hear
There's a woman in travail with His holy Word
That His child of truth and power and might
Shall be born in the earth in the cold dark night
And the Kingdom of Jesus will rise up from the dust of the earth

Holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lamb of God
Holy is His name Shallum
Maranatha
Father I hear your winds tonight
I hear your angels taking flight
Give me the power
Don't leave me behind

Holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lamb of God
Holy is His name Shallum
Maranatha
Father I hear your winds tonight
I hear all your angels taking flight
Give me the power
Don't leave me behind

Holy, holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy, holy
Father I hear your winds tonight
I hear all your angels taking flight
Give me the power
Don't leave me behind


IF I WERE A SPARROW
By Martha Miranda © 1994

If I were a sparrow, I'd fly away
Fly away! Fly away!
And if I were a flower, I'd fade away
Fade away! Fade away!

And go to be with JESUS in heaven
And be a flower blooming at His feet
Or be a little sparrow in the palm of His hand
O, I'd fly away!
You know I'd fly away

When my life is over it'll be my turn
To fly away! Fly away!
Then just like the sparrow I'll take my flight
And fly away! Fly away

And go to be with JESUS in heaven
And be a living flower again
In a land where the sparrow never dies
O I'll fly away!
You know, I'll fly away!

When my life is over it'll be my turn
To fly away! Fly away!
Then just like the sparrow I’ll take my flight
And fly away! Fly away!
I’ll fly away! Fly away!
I’ll fly away!
Fly away! Away! Away!


The Little Book ©1991
Cathy Evans (Taken from Revelation 10)

A mighty angel came down from heaven in a cloud
A rainbow he wore on his head
Opened in his hand was a little book
And he cried with a loud cry
Seal up those things the seven thunders uttered
And write them not, He said

There is an unsealing
That shall come down from heaven
A little book shall come unto man
In the days of the seventh angel
The voice shall sound
Declaring God's word unto man

Take the book and eat it up
It shall make thy belly bitter
But in thy mouth sweet as honey
And prophesy again before
Many kings and nations
These words shall be the reed

Holy is the Father
For He fulfilled His words
To send His prophets to man
Holy is His word
Unsealed by His hand
Come hear what the Spirit says

Take the book and eat it up
It shall make thy belly bitter
But in thy mouth sweet as honey
And prophesy again before
Many kings and nations
These words shall be the reed

WINDS OF WRATH
By Martha Miranda © 1994

We can see the sky and know
A storm is on its way
We can feel the wind and know
The rains are going to fall
We can see the lightning
And its thunder shakes the sky
How is it that we do not hear the sounds?

Of the winds of wrath blowing in the distance?
Of the winds of wrath touching down here and there?
Of the winds of wrath building power
Like the world has never seen!

(Recitation)
The angels are prepared to sound
The trumpet of the ages
Hold back the winds till we
Have sealed the servants of the LORD
Then let loose the winds of wrath
Against ungodly men and liars
Against the wicked haters of the LORD

(Vocal Continues)
We can see a woman will bear
The child within her womb
We can see she can't escape
Her day of woe
Why can't men see the earth
-Cannot escape the wrath of GOD?
Why can't they hear
The winds blow?

The winds of wrath blowing in the distance?
The winds of wrath touching down here and there?
The winds of wrath building power
Like the world has never seen!
Hear the wind blow!
Hear the wind blow!


I WALK ON AND HANG ON
By Martha Miranda © 1994

I get so angry every day
Being all alone
Why can't someone come along
And help me bear my load?
Why can't someone care about the songs
That must be sung?
I get so angry every day
Being all alone

Why am I so all alone
Doing what I do?
Doesn't anybody care
That workers are so few?
Why can't someone care about
The words that must be said?
I get so angry every day
At the lying words of men

So I hang on every day
I walk on and hang on
And I reach up every day and every night
And hang on
Cause the strength is in the hand
Of that One reaching down
So I hang on every day
I walk on and hang on!

We must forgive those every day
Who are so very blind
We must love them and forgive them
For lagging so far behind
We must forgive those who love the world
And all that it contains
We must sing our songs and tell the story
Till JESUS comes again

So I hang on every day
I walk on and hang on
And I reach up every day and every night
And hang on
Cause the strength is in the hand
Of that One reaching down
So I hang on every day
I walk on and hang on!


GOD BLESS AMERICA
By Martha Miranda © 1990

Our land has lost its power
And its glory we once knew
Her name is hated everywhere
They burn the red, white and blue
They kill our boys of peace
With our own weapons of war
GOD bless America
GOD bless her

Our land will rise to power
And the glory we once knew
Her name will be honored everywhere
They'll raise the red, white and blue
Her peace they cannot kill
Her glory they cannot burn
GOD bless America
GOD bless Her

GOD bless America
GOD bless Her
Lift up Her name in every land
That men will trust Her
And take up arms for freedom
And fight for the rights of every man
For the right to love his own country
And its flag, and its name
GOD bless America
GOD bless Her
GOD bless America
GOD bless Her! AMERICA!
