Track Name: Drivin On ICE
Drivin on ICE

The snow is fallin
The wind is howlin
The blizzard grips like a vice
There's just no tellin
Where we are goin'
'Cause we are drivin on ICE

White rock
Iced roads
You better take good advice
Do not collide
Enjoy the ride
The world is drivin on ICE

The fog is freezin
The snow is driftin'
The airports losin its flights
The traffics jammed
We changed the plan
and drove across the land...
Its sounds so crazy
Its so amazin, its nice
We're D D D Da
We're D D D Da
We're D D Drivin on ICE ...
Track Name: Romantic
You are the girl
I am the guy...
No better time
No better place
Lets be romantic, romantic
Track Name: Christmas Confusion
A baby boy was born they say
2000 years ago this very day
So everybody wants to celebrate
We eat and sing and drink and decorate
But with all the tinsel and all the trappings
Seems that something still is lacking....
Track Name: Golden Years
Golden Years

We were so young
When love was new
And though we made mistakes
We always knew
The road ahead was filled with dreams
And now it seems
Our dreams
Have turned to GOLD

Chorus
These golden years
Have passed us by
These golden years
How time does fly
We want to celebrate
A love so dear
Full of golden moments
And golden years
reprise
golden moments
golden years

These golden years
Such golden days
We celebrate our loves
Pure GOLD today
We've had the best of times
We've seen the world
And in the times of trial
Dark threads turned to GOLD oh oh

Friends since at first at we met
Always a team
Forgetting our regrets
Sharing our dreams
We raised a family
The kids now grown
Forever friends and family
Together not alone

Track Name: small world BIG GOD
small world BIG GOD by Gerry O'Connell
--------------------------------------------------

Small world Big God
Little devil mighty Lord

I was tossed by storms
On a raging sea
But there was someone
Watching over me
He snapped the chains of slavery
Trusting my saviour rescued me

Small world Big God
Little devil mighty Lord
Woah oh Woah oh oh

Before time began
He made the plan
To come and rescue a fallen man
A rugged cross, an empty tomb
The risen Christ, in the upper room

Small world Big God
Little devil mighty Lord
Woah oh Woah oh oh

A shepherd boy took the giant down
There's no intimidation when Gods in town
Dat little bitty debil , he got to flee
Coz God and me are a majority

Small world Big God
Little devil mighty Lord
Woah oh Woah oh oh

It may seem confusing
But there ain't no doubt
He's a mighty God of power
And the truth is out
Feel his love like an ocean
Overwhelming you its true

Small world Big God
Little devil mighty Lord

You never never know what can happen
When you come into
The presence of
A King

Track Name: Such Great Love
SUCH GREAT LOVE (Blood was shed)
by Gerry O’Connell

Blood was shed
But now I know
That cleansing, healing power
Still flows.
Jesus died, so I go free
No mistake
His blood was shed for me.

Words just fail me
Mere words could not express
The depth of gratitude, From this saved soul
In quiet moments
I raise my praise
Amazed by the scale
Of such great love.
Such great love.
How can I forget
Such great love.

Blood was shed
He stood in my stead
He was scourged
And left for dead
He hung in shame
Endured the pain,
Took the blame
He paid my debt.

I can’t forget
The blood He shed
Has paid my debt
I can’t forget….
How can I forget
Such great love.

I’ve been set free
So wonderfully
I’m glad that Jesus died for me
How can I forget
Such great love.
Track Name: Spirit of the Lord
The spirit of the Lord
Is upon me
The spirit of the Lord
Is upon me
To bring good news
Good news
To the Poor the Poor

Sending me to comfort
The broken hearted

Compassion, releases, prisoners
Compassion, announces good news
The favour of the Lord
Has come

The spirit of the Lord
The spirit of the Lord
Is Bringing peace
He’s in this place
Healing all their pain
Bringing peace
Bringing release

(repeat to fade)
Track Name: one solitary life
.......all the armies that ever marched, and all the navies that ever were built, and all the parliaments that ever sat, all the kings that ever reigned, put together have not affected the life of man upon this earth as powerfully as has this... One Solitary Life.
Track Name: The Amazing Blues
One of these days I'm gonna rise up singin'
One of these days.... I'm gonna fly , gonna fly away... yeah yeah yeah...

If you've been goin' down that lonely lonely road
That leads you down down down down down
You better stop, stop and turn around.

See I was going down to a hot hot place
Suddenly I found this amazin grace... way .. amazin grace
Track Name: More to Life
MORE TO LIFE
People walking in darkness
really don't understand
there is More
there must be More
More to Life
Track Name: Fight The Good Fight
Fight the good fight with all your might;
Christ is your Strength and Christ your Right.
Lay hold on life, and it shall be
Your joy and crown in eternity.

Run the straight race thro' God's good grace;
Lift up your eyes and seek His face.
Life with its way before us lies;
Christ is the Path and Christ the Prize.

Cast care aside; upon your Guide
Lean, and His mercy will provide;
Lean, and the trusting soul shall prove
Christ is its Life and Christ its Love.

Faint not nor fear, His arms are near;
He does not change, and you are dear.
Only believe, and you shall see
That Christ is All in all to thee.

"And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. Remember Christ has your life in his hands"
(Matthew 24:6)
Track Name: One Day
ONE DAY

One Day we'll see it happen
One Day it will be real
One Day the dream will cease to be
For All will be revealed

A house of love and harmony
A tower of joy and peace
A restaurant to the hungry
Where prisoners are released

We all look to right injustice
We all long to see men set free
For all God's people on this planet
We Cry Freedom, Let it Be!

One Day
Track Name: Forever in your debt
Lost in darkness
Mind was so confused
Would not listen
Man I just refused
My world was shaking
Aching with regret
You set me free
I'm forever in your debt

Forever Forever, Forever in your debt
Forever we never, can forget

You are Creator
No matter what they said
World needs a Saviour
To pay up for our debt
Hell is the problem
We sinned lets not forget
No need to argue
Please don't get upset
You say you'll take your chances
But you can't win that bet.

Forever Forever, Forever in your debt
Forever we never, can forget
