Ivan Parker's, "Under Grace", Southern Gospel Music to Live By!


Ivan Parker is one of Southern Gospel music's finest vocalists. On, "Under Grace" Ivan takes his brand of Southern Gospel music to a new level. "Under Grace" finds Ivan Parker taking a step into a more "progressive" style of Southern Gospel music.

When I asked Ivan Parker about the the music on this project, "The Grace That I'm Under", in particular he laughed and responded, "Alot of times we don't have a clue as to how these songs are going to - I guess you would say - 'go down on tape'. We come up with arrangements, we come up with the songs, and alot of times the studio musicians will actually put a certain feel to them and just really out do themselves."

"When ever we started doing the tracks on this CD, they actually took it a different direction. We were all very pleasantly surprised because it is a little bit different and a lot more progressive."

I guess it pays off to have top quality studio musicans like those at the Crossroads studios when making a recording. It sure made the difference on "Under Grace"!

THE GRACE THAT I’M UNDER

The Grace That I'm Under, Accompaniment CD

Verse 1
When I am down and oh my soul so weary
When troubles come and my heart burdened be
Then I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me
Chorus
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be
Verse 2
There is no life, no life without its hunger
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly
But when you come and I am filled with wonder
Sometimes I think I glimpse eternity

I Will Lead The Blind


Verse 1
I had lost my way, I was stumbling in the dark
My joy was gone, and misery set in
I cried out to the Lord, I can’t make it on my own
That is when I heard these words from Him
He said...
Chorus
I will lead the blind by ways they have not known
Along unfamiliar paths, I will guide them
I will turn the darkness into light before them
And make the rough places smooth
These are the things that I will do
Verse 2
So when your days are dark
and you don’t know where to turn
And you feel your night of sorrow never ends
There is one who loves you
no matter what you’ve done
He’s given you this promise,
He’s your friend
He said...
Repeat Chorus
These are the things that I will do

Ivan Parker, Lyrics to...

Very First Thing

The very first thing that I’m gonna do is say
Lord I need your help today
In a very special kind of way
And the very first thing I’m gonna do is pray

Trouble comes a knocking
Everybody knows
Where to turn for help
Which way I should go

I’ve learned to make this my reply
The very first thing I’m gonna do is pray

Verse 2
Well ole’ Job lost his living
And his so called friends
Made a common judgement

In God I’ve placed my hope and faith
And the very first thing I’m gonna do is pray
Chorus 2
The very first thing that I’m gonna do is pray
The very first thing that I’m gonna do is say

And the very first thing I’m gonna do is pray
The very first thing I’m gonna do is pray
The very first thing I’m gonna do is pray

Love Called My Name

Love Called My Name, Accompaniment CD

Verse 1
There on a rugged hillside...Darkness covered the land
Jesus hung bledding and dying....for the lost souls of man
He could have called ten thousand angels
to take Him away from the shame
Oh, but I am so thankful for His grace reached to me
The day love called my name
Chorus
When Jesus died...what sacrifice
What love and compassion was shown
When He stretched out His hands and said I love you this much
Such mercy has never been known
And when He cried “It’s finished” everything changed
I will never forget that day...Love called my name
Verse 2
O what love beyond measure...The Savior had for me
I can’t understand why He cared so much to die upon that old tree
He took my sin and all I had been
And made my life over anew
There at the cross...His loved called to me
Now the same love is calling to you
Bridge
You ask me what love is
I’ts a man hanging on a tree
You ask me what mercy is
It’s that man dying
Instead of me
Repeat Chorus
I will never forget that day...Love called my name
He called my name

Ivan Parker, Lyrics to...

My Lord’s Been With Me

God’s been my shelter, O’ God’s been right here

Count up the good and number the bad

My Lord’s been with me all the way

Miracle River


Verse 1
Naaman viewed the waters, standing on the shore
Elijah said to go down, seven times, no more
He must have come up shouting, his body made anew
Obeying the command, this miracle came thru
Chorus
God will lead you through the miracle river
The Great I Am has come to be your guide
Just walk right in, to this miracle river
He’ll part the waters each and every time
He’ll part the waters each and every time
Verse 2
There is a crystal river, flowing deep and wide
I see the gates of Heaven, over on the other side
There’s loved one calling yonder
Wade on in the waters fine
Then God began to lead me, once more my need supplied
Repeat Chorus
Bridge
Well you’re standing on the banks as the storm in raging by
Never fear, He’s a miracle giver
Miracles come easy to a God that never fails
Wade right in, to the miracle river
Chorus 2
God will lead you through the miracle river
The Great I Am has come to be your guide
Just walk right in, to this miracle river
He’ll part the waters each and every time
Yeah, He’ll part the waters each and every time
He’s a miracle giver, never fear
He’ll part the water and lead you, to the other side

Every Knee Shall Bow


Verse 1
The whole world did not bow, when the water turned to wine
And not everyone would worship Him when He gave sight to the blind
Out of all the miracles performed how could anyone deny
But no one said “He’s King of Kings” when the crowd cried “Crucify”
Chorus
But one day, every knee shall bow, in honor to the King
And every tongue confess that He is the Lord of everything
So the choice is yours to make, do it then or do it now
But one day, every knee shall bow
Every knee shall bow
Verse 2
There are those who don’t believe and some who still deny
That Jesus is the Son of God and His word is all a lie
But when prophecy has been fulfilled and the final trumpet sounds
There is one thing you can count on, every knee will hit the ground
Chorus 2
Cause one day, every knee shall bow, in honor to the King
And every tongue confess, that He is the Lord of everything
So the choice is your’s to make, do it then or do it now
But one day every knee shall bow
One day every knee shall bow
Every knee shall bow
Tag
We’ll bow on our knees and cry Holy, Holy, Holy
We’ll clap our hands and sing Glory, Glory, Glory, Glory
We’ll clap our hands and sing Glory, Glory to the Son of God
Glory to the Son of God

Ivan Parker, Lyrics to...

I’m Having One of Those Days


Verse 1
When I woke up this morning,
the first thing that I saw,
was the sun shining down on me
I had a song in my heart and peace in my mind,
I felt blessed from my head to my feet
I’ve been smiling all day long,
and I’m rejoicing in my soul
I can’t explain how I feel,
I guess it’s better felt than told
Chorus
I’m having one of those days
where I want to praise the Lord
Having one of those days,
where my heart is filled with joy
I wanna tell of His goodness,
I’ve just got to testify
How he brought me out of darkness,
into His holy Light
Well I feel like I could walk on water,
I’ve got a mountain moving faith
So you’ll just have to overlook me
Cause I’m having, one of those days
Verse 2
There’s no feeling in this world,
Like when you know the Lord,
It’s such a miracle to me
That my soul has been redeemed,
His grace has set me free
And praise God I’m a child of the King
Some days I just can’t help myself,
I seem to lose all control
I guess it’s one of those days,
So I’ll just let the glory roll
Repeat Chorus Twice
Yeah, one of those days
I’m having one of those days, yeah

Ivan Parker, Lyrics to...

I’d Rather Have Jesus


Verse 1
I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold
I’d rather be His than have riches untold
I’d rather have Jesus than houses or land
I’d rather be led by His nail-pierced hand
Chorus
Than to be the king of a vast domain
And be held in sin’s dread sway
I’d rather have Jesus than anything,
than anything, more than anything
This world affords today
