THE SPARROW'S NEST
By Martha Miranda © 1973

He has made a nest for me
Though a sparrow I not be
He made a nest for me
In a mighty big oak tree
In the middle of the City
He made a nest for me

He made a nest for me.
He made a nest for me.
He made a nest for me

At the end of a long weary day
You'll find me in my nest in the City
Made for weary sparrows
There a table's spread for me
Cool water and something to eat
For hungry thirsty sparrows

He made a nest for me
He made a nest for me.
He made a nest for me
He made a nest for me

If you're ever in my town
Come to the nest in the City
Made for weary sparrows
When you're passing through my town
Stop and rest in the City
Made for weary sparrows

I'm a JESUS sparrow. I love JESUS sparrows
I'm a JESUS sparrow. I love JESUS sparrows
I'm resting in the nest in the City
I'm resting in the nest in the City
I'm resting in the nest in the City


A TENDER MELODY
By Martha Miranda © 1973

Hear the wind in the trees
Hear the soft summer breeze
Calling you with a tender melody
Hear it whisper, I love you
Hear it whisper, I'm near you
Hear it saying, please come on home

For it is JESUS calling you
With words of love He'll woo
He'll heal your broken heart
Give you a brand new start, a brand new start

He'll give you a new life
He'll free you from all strife
He'll walk with you, forever
He loves you so

For it is JESUS calling you
With words of love, He'll woo
He'll heal your broken heart
Give you a brand new start, a brand new start

Hear the Saviour's plea
His tears from Calvary
Are filled with a love so divine
Hear Him calling you
Hear Him calling you
Hear Him calling you
Calling you . . . . .


DON'T IT MAKE YOU TREMBLE?
By Martha Miranda © 1994

I have heard it said ever since I was a kid
JESUS is coming again
And I've even read the words of men long dead
Who thought they would live to see that day
But I have come to know, whether dead or alive
All men shall stand up
All men shall rise
Some men shall live and some shall die again
Doesn't it just make your bones shake?
Doesn't it just make your bones tremble?

Don't you know it's time, to walk the narrow line?
Cause GOD just ain't a foolin' this time
Don't you know it's time, to have a change of mind
Cause GOD just ain't a foolin' this time
He's closin' up the books
He's reelin' in the line
He's cuttin' down the fields
He's gatherin' in the wine
He's comin' right on time to settle an old score
Don't it just make your bones shake?
Don't it just make your bones tremble?

Don't you know . . . .Don't you know. . .
Don't you know. . . .Don't you know . . .

Don't you know it's time, to walk the narrow line?
Cause GOD just ain't a foolin' this time
Don't you know it's time, to have a change of mind
Cause GOD just ain't a foolin' this time
He's closin' up the books
He's reelin' in the line
He's cuttin' down the fields
He's gatherin' in the wine
He's comin' right on time to settle an old score
Don't it just make your bones shake?
Don't it just make your bones tremble?
Don't you know . . .Don't you know. .
Don't you know. . .Don't you know . . .


LIFT ME UP
By Martha Miranda © 1984

Put a cross on the hill
Next to thee, next to thee
Put a cross on the hillside, just for me
Hide the world from my eyes
That I will see only thee
Lift me up upon my cross, next to thee

Lift me up on my cross, next to thee
Let me hear the thunder that rolled on that dark day
Let me hang by your bleeding side
Let me die the death you died
That others might see the power of life living at Calvary

Put a crown on the cross
Next to thee, next to thee
Put a crown on the cross, just for me
For I see the heavenly call
That demands my all and all
Put a crown on the cross, next to thee

Put a crown on the cross, next to thee
Let me taste of death's sweet victory
Let me wear the crown you wore
Let me bear the grief you bore
That others might see the power of life living at Calvary

Lift me up on my cross, next to thee
There the grave has no power over me
Let them nail me to the tree
Let me die there next to thee
That others might see the power of life living at Calvary


FALL IN LOVE WITH JESUS
By Martha Miranda © 1994

Everybody wants someone to love them
Everybody wants someone to love
And everybody looks for that ole' sunshine
After the teardrops are through
Everybody needs someone to love them
Especially when they fail at all they do
So if you are looking for somebody
Somebody is looking too
So fall in love
Fall in love, just do

Fall in love with JESUS
Cause once you fall in love with JESUS
You'll always be in love with JESUS
Once you fall in love with JESUS

Fall in love with JESUS
Cause once you fall in love with JESUS
You'll always be in love with JESUS
Once you fall in love with JESUS
Fall in love with JESUS
Fall in love with JESUS


TELL IT TO ME
By Martha Miranda © 1994

Tell it to me over and over again
Tell it to me over and over again

Tell it to me over and over again
Tell it to me over and over again
Tell me the greatest love story
The world has ever seen
JESUS died on Calvary
Because of you and me
So tell it to me over and over again
How JESUS loves me

Tell it to me over and over again
Tell it to me over and over again

Tell it to me over and over again
Tell it to me over and over again
JESUS healed everyone
JESUS forgave everyone
JESUS died on Calvary
So I would live forever
So tell it to me over and over again
How JESUS loves me

JESUS died on Calvary
So I would live forever
So tell it to me over and over again
How JESUS loves me

Tell it to me over and over again
Tell it to me over and over again . . . . . . . .


SOMEBODY IS KNOCKIN'
By Martha Miranda © 1994

Somebody is knockin'
Knockin' on the door
Don't you hear Him knockin'
Knockin' on the door?

The earth is gonna' shake and quake and tremble
GOD is gonna' set the world on fire
GOD is gonna' lose His temper
There is someone you need to know
Somebody is knockin'
Open up the door
Don't you hear Him knockin'?
Open up the door
Somebody is knockin', knockin' on the door

JESUS is knockin' on your door
He has been there many times before
Why won't you just open up the door?
Aren't you afraid He won't come anymore?

The earth is gonna' shake and quake and tremble
GOD is gonna' set the world on fire
GOD is gonna' lose His temper
There is someone you need to know

JESUS is knockin' on your door
He has been there many times before
JESUS is knockin' on your door

Somebody is knockin'
Knockin' on the door
Don't you hear Him knockin'?
Knockin' on the door
Somebody is knockin', knockin' on the door


YOU’RE ALL OUT OF TIME
By Martha Miranda © 1994

Haven't you considered
Your day of flight will come
And the little black box
Will tell it all?
Haven't you considered
He comes to get us all
What will you do when He says?

Come on, let's go
You are all out of time
You should have listened a long time ago
Come on, let's go
Take your place in line
I've got a lot of souls to gather
Now, now, now,
Don't give me any trouble
It won't go well for you
This is your last breath
So make it worth your while
Come, let's go
You are all out of time
You can't do anything now
So get yourself in line

Haven't you considered
You'll reap just what you sow?
Naked you came
Naked you go
Haven't you considered
Your time to live would end?
What will you do when it does?

Come on, let's go
You are all out of time
You should have listened a long time ago
Come on, let's go
Take your place in line
I've got a lot of souls to gather
Now, now, now,
Don't give me any trouble
It won't go well for you
This is your last breath
So make it worth your while
Come, let's go
You are all out of time
You can't do anything now
So get yourself in line


I HEARD THE TRUMPET
By Martha Miranda © 1994

I heard ole' Gabriel a blowin' on his trumpet loud
I saw ole' Gabriel sittin' on a golden cloud

O, LORD, I want to dance upon a mountaintop
O, LORD, I want to sing forever and never stop
O, LORD, I want to shout until my happy body drops
O, LORD, I want to spin around like a whirlin' top
I'm so excited
I'm so excited
I've heard ole' Gabriel a blowin' that horn
The great resurrection morning

I heard all the angels a blowin' on their golden horns
I saw all the angels a followin' ole' Gabriel down

O, LORD, I want to dance upon a mountaintop
O, LORD, I want to sing forever and never stop
O, LORD, I want to shout until my happy body drops
O, LORD, I want to spin around like a whirlin' top
I'm so excited
I'm so excited
I've heard ole' Gabriel a blowin' that horn
The great resurrection morning

I heard ole' Gabriel a blowin' his trumpet loud
I heard ole' Gabriel a blowin' his trumpet loud . . . . .


NO DOUBT ABOUT IT
By Martha Miranda © 1994

There was a certain question
They all asked Him
When would the ending be?
There's no doubt about it
That time is now
When every man shall face eternity

No doubt about it!
The King is coming!
No doubt about it!
The King is coming!
No doubt about it, at all
He's coming again

There was a certain answer
Written in the gospels
When the ending will be
There's no doubt about it
The signs are everywhere
But especially are they moving in me

No doubt about it!
The King is coming!
No doubt about it!
The King is coming!
No doubt about it, at all
He's coming again
