Return to Southern-Gospel-Music-Lyrics.com Homepage Lord, if You have a blessing for me, send it. 'Till my cup's overflowing, Lord, send it. Everything will be all right when the angels take their flight, Just send it on their wings, Lord, send it.

Verse 1

In the days of my youth, how I tried many things To fill up that emptiness inside. Before very long, I discovered the Truth. Only one thing left me satisfied.

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2

How long has it been since I felt that Spirit, That once filled my heart up with love? Renew my desire to embrace those blessings, To receive what descends from above.

Verse 3

And if I have a friend, or a neighbor who is searching. Instead of looking up, they're looking down. Give me the wisdom to point them to Calvary, And share with them the blessings that I've found.

2nd Chorus

Lord, if You have a blessing for us, send it. 'Till our cup's overflowing, Lord, send it. Everything will be all right when the angels take their flight, Just send it on their wings, Lord, send it.

You Were Working For Me

Mark Bishop

Verse 1

She picked the tip up off the table, Wiped her forehead with her sleeve. Another tray of dirty dishes, and it's time for her to leave. She clocks out and says 'good night ya'll', Looks out at the road ahead. When she pulls into the drive, it's time to put the kids in bed.

Verse 2

I hope you know your mother loves you. Oh you know, we know you do. We tried to clean the house, and we did all our homework too. Mom, I hope you feel real special, cause anyone can see, You're not working for the money, you're working for a family.

Chorus

Yeah, you're working for me. And you're paying the price. And I'll never forget how much you gave, or how much you sacrificed. And I'm gonna pay you back someday, you'll see. For all that you gave up, when you were working for me.

Verse 3

One last time she goes to visit, and she's holding back the tears. The doctor says, "It won't be long. Your mother's getting up in years." I hope you know your daughter loves you, Oh you know, I know you do. She strokes her hair and smiles and holds her hand the whole night through.

Verse 4

Then somewhere in the morning, just before the break of day. A mother's fingers lose their grip, and a last breath slips away. And the hard life she held on to, she turns loose and lets it go. Then a gentle voice says "Come on home, in case you didn't know."

2nd Chorus

You were working for me. And you paid the price. And I didn't forget how much you gave, or how much you sacrificed. Now it's time to pay you back, Oh you're gonna see. For all that you gave up, When you were working for me.

And I know sometimes it seemed like you were working for free, But you were working for me. You were working for me. ..............................................................

When Jesus Saw Inside Of Me

Mark Bishop

Verse 1

I am only one among so many, Just a pilgrim passing through this land. Measured by the standards of this world, I am just an ordinary man. I have never set my sights upon fortune or fame, Nor has it been my desire for the world to know my name. In this lifetime, I may not compare. To a movie star or millionaire.

But when Jesus saw inside of me, He saw something noone else could see. He saw passed each imperfection, Every callas, every scar. Now the blood of royalty flows within my heart. When the world said there's no hope for me, That's when Jesus saw inside of me.

Verse 2

I am not the house where I abide, I'm not the car I drive or the clothes I wear. There is more to me than my possessions, I'm a Christian and a royal heir. When the world looks on the outside, That's when Jesus looks within. And He finds His greatest treasures in the hearts of righteous men. When I felt I couldn't offer much. When I felt beyond the Savior's touch.

Repeat Chorus

God Just Answered Another Prayer

Mark Bishop

Verse 1

A little girl praying at her bed one night. "Lord help mommy and daddy not to fight." Mom and dad are worried cause the bills are due, They're counting every penny and trying to make it through. Daddy drives to work on the other side of town, He pulls over on the shoulder, somebody's broken down.

Verse 2

A man gets in the car and says, "Thank you for the ride. Nobody else would stop, and it's freezing outside. I'm the owner of the factory down a mile or two." Daddy tells the man, "You know, I work there too." Now everybody's happy cause daddy got a raise. Ain't it funny what can happen when a little girl prays?

Chorus:

Ya know time and time again when somebody prays, You know the Good Lord works in mysterious ways. You may not see it coming from anywhere. But God just answered another prayer.

Verse 3

There's a mother back home, praying for her son. He's under heavy fire from an enemies gun. He's a soldier at the front, completely unaware Of the angels catching bullets in the middle of the air. If we could only see, we'd surely be amazed At the mountains being moved with just a little bit of faith.

Repeat Chorus

In every situation, God is in control. Little interventions that nobody, nobody knows.

Repeat Chorus

You know God just answered another prayer. I said God just answered another prayer. And you can't ask too much of my God. ...............................................................

I Remember Her Well

Mark Bishop

Verse 1

The flowers and the candles were perfect. I've never seen so many friends. The groom and the best man are ready And the minister says that it's time to begin.

I love how you laugh when you're nervous. Your mother says "Oh, you'll do fine." There're so many things that a dad wants to say, But I guess that this isn't the time.

Like, honey, did I ever tell you about a girl that I used to know. I was the only man in her life, not very long ago. I told her stories at bedtime. I sang her songs, and I tied her shoes. I remember I cried when I waved goodbye on her first day of school.

Chorus:

But you don't know her. You wouldn't remember her. You don't know her. But I remember her well.

Summer nights spent in the backyard. Just her, her mother and me. We looked at the stars and we chased lightning bugs And we laughed in the warm summer breeze.

"Someday, you'll find your prince", I said. "And all of your dreams will come true." "Daddy, when I grow up," she said, "I'm gonna marry you."

So look at you now in that white gown, Taking everyone's breath away. Reminding me of an angel in her fourth grade Christmas play. And trying to keep her from growing, Was like keeping the summer from fall. I couldn't keep her as my little girl, Time won't let me keep her at all.

Repeat Chorus

And up till now, I thought I'd done some tough jobs in my day. But the hardest thing a dad ever does is give his girl away.

So the old tree house stands empty. The swings on the swing set are still. And noone's chasing those old lighting bugs. From now on, I guess noone will.

You don't know her. You wouldn't remember her. You don't know her. But she'll always be my little girl. ..............................................................

One Prayer Over

Mark Bishop
Centergy Music/Possum Run Music BMI

Verse 1

Hey you there listening. You've been waiting so long and listening. For someone who knows, For someone to show you the way.

And you feel so lonely, Like maybe you're the only one, Who's going through what you're going through today.

Now I don't pretend to know, How your situation got so low. But sometimes life can bring you to your knees. And I guess there's no explaining, Why sometimes it just keeps raining, And your happy sunny days are distant memories.

Chorus:

But one prayer over from where you are now, Lies the answer to your problem, If you'll only allow. It's already taken care of, Though you don't yet know how. Just one prayer over from where you are now.

Verse 2

If it's any consolation, You know, no matter your situation. I've got a friend who has seen it all before. He will listen with compassion. You might think it sounds old fashioned. But all you've gotta do is just open up that door.

Repeat Chorus
