HOSANNA TO THE KING
By Sonja Peterson & Martha Miranda © 1995

There was a lowly handmaid who loved
To serve the LORD (loved to served the LORD)
She didn’t seek to the ways of man
She didn’t seek the world
She put her trust in GOD her King
And when the Saviour He did bring
GOD chose this lowly handmaid
Of the LORD

As His vessel to bring forth the living WORD
GOD used a woman to bring forth His only Son
GOD used a lowly handmaiden to bring forth
His salvation to the world
The angels shouted glory as the truth they did proclaim
God had come down to dwell in the flesh of His Son
Hosanna to the King
Hosanna to the King

The WORD of God it does proclaim
A woman shall appear (a woman shall appear)
And in her pain a Manchild she’ll bring forth
And He shall reign
Over the nations and bring God’s children hope
They will dwell in peace
And drink pure waters from a crystal
The Word of God it does proclaim

The God will use a woman to bring forth His coming Son
God will use a vessel to bring forth the living Word
God will use a handmaiden to bring forth His salvation
His salvation again to the world
The angels will cry holy as the truth they do proclaim
God has come down again to dwell in the flesh of a Son
Hosanna to the King
Hosanna to the King

Recitation
Luke 1:28-33
And the angel came in unto her, and said,
Hail, thou that art highly favoured,
the Lord is with thee: blesssed art thou among women.
And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying,
and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary:
for thou hast found favour with God.
And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb,
and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest
and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever;
and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

John 14:2,3
And Jesus said,
In my Father’s house are many mansions:
if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come again and receive you unto myself:;
that where I am, there ye may be also

Rev. 12:1,5,10,11
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven;
a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet,
and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
And she being with child cried, travailing in birth,
and pained to be delivered.
And she brought forth a manchild,
who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron:
and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven,
Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God,
and the power of his Christ:
for the accuser of our brethren is cast down,
which accused them before our God day and night.


ARE YOU BEING GATHERED?
Lyrics By Julia Wallace © Music By Martha Miranda © 1993

The world is turning
The earth is burning
Fired by the bellows of a red hot hell
Calvary still is calling
The tree of life is seeding
Scattered by the Angels all around the world

The heavens are looking for a few good people
Are you one of them?
Are you one of them?
The heavens are looking for a few good people
Are you being gathered in?

The nets are dragging up the seas
The combine is rolling round the earth
Pushed by the winds of the Angels' wings
The earth is cracking open
The seas are running over
Powered by the wrath of the devil and his angels

Are you awake or business as usual?
The earth is still turning around
As in the days of Noah when the flood came pouring down
Calvary is still the higher ground

The heavens are looking for a few good people
Are you one of them?
Are you one of them?
The heavens are looking for a few good people
Are you being gathered in?
Are you being gathered in?
Are you being gathered in?


BE STILL AND KNOW
By Martha Miranda © 1970

When you're too weary to even pray
When you're too weary to even cry
When you don't care if you live or die
Be still and know, that I am GOD
Be still and know, that I am GOD

O, how I love thee, my weary child
O, yes, how I love thee, my faithful child
Just rest your weary head upon my breast
And drink of Me and of my love
Just rest awhile, drink of my love

(Reading)
Fear not, my child, for I overcame the world
Fear not, for I overcame hell
Fear not, my child, for I overcame satan
Fear nothing, for I overcame all things
For I am the resurrection
And I am the life
Fear nothing, my child, I overcame death

Then travel on, my weary child
Just travel on, my child, another mile
Just walk in me, my child
Remember my love for thee
Be still and know, that I am GOD
When all do fail thee
There is thy GOD
There is thy GOD
There is thy GOD


IS THERE SUCH A THING?
By Martha Miranda © 1994

Everybody's talkin' bout their friends behind their backs
Everybody thinks their words are never comin' back
Around the bend, and around the corner to hit them in the face
Isn't that a big mistake? O yeah!
Everybody's doin' things they think won't be found out
Everybody thinks everybody else does it too, so what?
In the dark, out of sight, who is there to tell?
Doesn't that ring a bell?

(Recitation)
Is there such a thing as just a little lie?
What we don't know won't hurt us at all?
Is there such a thing as just a little sin?
Go ahead and cut it out
It's such a little thing
Everybody has the right to say what's wrong or right
Or is that just a little lie
That seems to sound so right?
It seemed like such a little thing
To hang JESUS on the tree
What's the worth of one life to men, anyway?
So far from Calvary we've come, or have we?
We still slay the innocent
And we still slaughter the holy
We still hate whom we want
And we kill whom we want
Isn't that a big mistake?
Have you believed the little lie
That there is no GOD?
Is there such a thing as just a little lie?

Everybody's talkin' bout their friends behind their backs
Everybody thinks their words are never comin' back
Around the bend, and around the corner to hit them in the face
Isn't that a big mistake? O, yeah!
Everybody's doin' things they think won't be found out
Everybody thinks everybody else does it too, so what?
In the dark, out of sight, who is there to tell?
Doesn't that ring a bell?
Everybody's talkin' bout their friends behind their backs
Everybody thinks their words are never comin' back
Around the bend, and around the corner to hit them in the face
Isn't that a big mistake? Uh huh!


I'M NOT HERE TO ENTERTAIN YOU
By Martha Miranda © 1994

I'm just here to entertain you
Put your hands together, clap for me
I'm just here to entertain you
When I tell a joke won't you laugh for me?
Can you say amen brother?
Can you praise the LORD?
Can you laugh a little? clap a little now?
Can you say amen brother?
Can you praise the LORD?
Have I made you happy?
Send me all your money, money, money, money
Cause I just came to entertain you
Just make out your check to me!

Did the preachers get their jokes
Out of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John?
I can't find them written down there
Did my JESUS tell them to get up
And dance and clap their hands?
That is what I'm hearing everywhere

Did they take the word Master Card
Out of the Bible?
I can't find it written anywhere
I want my name written down
In the Lamb's Book of Life
Not on a Visa Card somewhere

I did find it in the Bible
In the last days men would follow
Those who laughed and tickled their ears
I did find it in the Bible
And I don't think it is funny
The preachers entertain the listening ears

JESUS said, I'm not here to entertain you
I'm here to make you cry for your sins
JESUS said, I'm not here to entertain you
I'm here to make you cry for lost souls
JESUS said, I'm not here to entertain you
I'm here to make you cry for the hungry
JESUS said, I'm not here to entertain you
I'm here to make you cry for the world
For the world! For the world! For the world!


LEAD ME TO THE ROCK
(Psa. 61)
By Martha Miranda © 1994

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I
For you have been a shelter for me
So will I sing praise to thy name
That I may daily perform my vows to thee, to thee

Oh, lead me to the rock that is higher than I
Oh, lead me to the rock that is higher than I
Lead me to the rock
Lead me to the rock
Yes, lead me to the rock that is higher than I
Oh, lead me to the rock that is higher than I
Oh, lead me to the rock that is higher than I
Lead me to the rock
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I
Oh, lead me to the rock
Lead me to the rock
Lead me to the rock
Lead me to the rock
Lead me to the rock
Lead me to the rock
Yes, lead me to the rock
Oh, lead me to the rock
Oh, lead me to the rock that is higher than I
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I
Lead me to the rock
Lead me to the rock that is higher, higher than I
Lead me to the rock
Lead me to the rock
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I
Lead me to the rock
Lead me to the rock
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I
Lead me to the rock . . . . . .


THE TESTIFYING ANGEL
By Martha Miranda © 1995

There is a knockin' on the door
Won't you let Him in
Why is He knockin' on the door
Unless He's been locked out again?
Why does He knock on His own door?
Because His house has been stolen
By the thief that sowed the tares
His enemies have done this

There is a house that waits for Him
They opened up the door
They let the testifying Angel in
To settle up the score
Sortin' out the truth and lies
Filling lamps with oil
Waiting, watching, praying, sleeping
Waiting for their LORD

And He shall open and none shall shut
And He shall shut up and none shall open
Those He gathers on the right
Will abide in the light
And those He gathers to the left
He'll send into darkness

For the truth has shined Her light
And they would not see
And Her Child they cast aside
And would rather blind be

GOD is sending an Angel
GOD has sent the Woman
To set His house in order for the coming of the Son
She does not knock on any door
She only testifies about the coming of the LORD,
And He is coming by and by
He is coming by and by
He is coming by and by. . . . . . . . . . . . .


HE WROTE THE BOOK
By Martha Miranda © 1995

Everyday we walk down the highway of life
Looking for love, looking for love
Everyday we fall into the ditches along the highway
Looking for love

Looking for love, looking for love
He wrote the book about love
Looking for love, looking for love
He wrote the book about love

We need to look up to the hands nailed above
There He wrote the book about love
We need to look up to the blood flowing down
There He wrote the book about love

He wrote the book
He wrote the book about love, book about love
He wrote the book
He wrote the book about love, book about love
When you need the power
He wrote the book about love, book about love
When you need the power
He wrote the book
He wrote the book about love

We need to look up to the Father from above
He wrote the book about love
We need to look up to His bleeding feet
He wrote the book about love

He wrote the book
He wrote the book about love, book about love
He wrote the book
He wrote the book about love, book about love
When you need the power
He wrote the book about love
He wrote the book about love
When you need the power
He wrote the book
He wrote the book about love
He wrote the book
He wrote the book
He wrote the book . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


WHEN THE PERFECT IS COME
By Martha Miranda © 1994

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury
I am telling the truth
I have seen the coming of the LORD
I have heard His Voice
Honorable judge and officers
Of this court so just
I have seen the coming of the LORD
He has told no lies

When the perfect is come
The power will be perfect
When the perfect is come
We shall all be healed
When the perfect is come
We shall know no death or pain
The power will be perfect
When the perfect is come
The perfect, the perfect comes
The perfect, the perfect
The perfect One comes

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury
We live in but a shadow
We live in but a promise
Of the Kingdom of GOD to come
Honorable priests and servants of the LORD
So preaching an imperfect work
Ministering things that are not true
Till the perfect One come

When the perfect is come
Prophecies shall fail
For men preach an imperfect work
When the perfect is come
All their doctrines shall fail
For the imperfect lies that they are

When the perfect is come
The power will be perfect
When the perfect is come
We shall all be healed
When the perfect is come
We shall know no death or pain
The power will be perfect
When the perfect is come
The perfect, the perfect comes
The perfect, the perfect
The perfect One comes!


I WONDER
By Martha Miranda © 1994

Trying to be perfect is so hard to do
And I wonder if it's worth it at all
Trying to love everybody is so hard to do
And I wonder what's the reason for it all
And then I wonder about the Woman in Revelation
And then I wonder about Her Man-Child

I wonder, I wonder is He the perfect One?
I wonder, I wonder if He's the perfect One to come
I wonder why He died
I wonder how He could cry
Father, forgive them

Trying to forgive everyone is so hard to do (so hard to do)
And I wonder why He said to (He said to)
Trying not to tell a lie is so hard to do (so hard to do)
Cause everybody's telling lies to me (tellin' lies to me)
And then I wonder about the Woman in Revelation
And then I wonder about Her Man-Child

I wonder, I wonder is He the perfect One?
I wonder, I wonder if He's the perfect One to come
I wonder why He died
I wonder how He could cry
Father, forgive them

Trying not to hate someone is so hard to do (hard to do)
And He said I can't hate anyone (Got to love everybody)
I wonder if I'll make it
And I wonder about you (I wonder bout you)
Cause trying to be perfect is so hard to do (so hard to do)

I wonder, I wonder is He the perfect One?
I wonder, I wonder if He's the perfect One to come
I wonder why He died
I wonder how He could cry
Father, forgive them

Here comes the Angels
Here they come
Here comes the Angels
Here they come
Here comes the Angels bearing the Woman
Here comes the Angels with Her Man-child
Here comes the Woman with the perfect One
Here comes the perfect One

Trying to be perfect is so hard to do (hard to do)
And I wonder if it's worth it at all (It's worth it)
Trying to love everybody is so hard to do (so hard to do)
And I wonder what's the reason for it all (What's the reason?)
I know the reason
I know the reason
I know the reason . . . . . . . . . . . .


I AM THE VINE
By Martha Miranda © 1994

Let not your heart be troubled
Abide in the vine
Let not your heart be fearful
Abide in the vine
I am the vine
I am the vine
There is no greater than I
I am the vine
I am the vine
Let not your heart be troubled
I am the vine
I am the vine


IN REMEMBRANCE OF JOANNA
By Martha Miranda © 1994

Holy Angels, carry me, to my home on high
Where the Holy One waits for me
Joanna . . . . .
I have finished the work down here
You have sent me to do
I am ready now, to return home to you
Joanna . . . . . .

I see Him there just like Stephen saw JESUS
I see Him standing there
On the right hand of GOD
I see JESUS standing there

Holy Angels carried her to her home on high
Where the Holy One waited for her
Joanna . . . . . . .
I see the LAMB standing there at the throne
And all of heaven is bowed down
I see Joanna at the throne
I see Joanna bowing down

Holy Angels carried her, to her home on high
I see the LAMB standing there
I see all of heaven bow down
I see the LAMB standing there
I see Joanna bow down

Holy Angels carry me, to your throne on high
I will bow down
I will bow down
I will bow
