Living life on the edge of a heartbreak, some have nowhere to turn. They wish someone would reach out to them. We pass people on the street each day. They wonder where is our source of joy? And why won't we share some of it with them? If we've got all the answers, why can't we provide solutions? We look at life with blinders on we see no one but ourselves Why can't we help the man who's fallen down? Instead we point out his faults to him How will that help him out? Shouldn't he know us by the love we share? If he's looking for a savior, will he find that savior in us? Chorus: We need love for one another We need to show them that the Lord's alive and well We're all sisters and brothers We need love for one another I've never thought of myself as an example of what a Christian should be I'll admit I'm not perfect But I started thinking about those who don't know him Do they know he lives in me? Can I show them who he really is? If they can't find him in me, tell me, where will they turn? Chorus Bridge: Do we love (as Jesus loved)? Do we show (that we care)? Can we make a difference with the love we share? We need love Chorus

You have your own problems to live with and I also have mine too. Yet you manage to comfort me when I am down and blue I know that being an example is so hard to do but still you are always there It's good to know that there is someone around. Someone who always cares Chorus: Christian friends (you can always count on them) Christian friends (they're always there) Christian friends (they don't give up on you) Because they always care. I always manage to lose control of the sins that pull me down. But the Lord works through my friends who help me when satan's around. With a comforting word and a friendly smile they always help me out Building each other up in the Lord, that's what friends are all about. Chorus Bridge: It's never been too hard to be a friend everybody needs them to stay 'til the very end. Chorus

We are standing together United as one before the Holy Throne We are standing together right in the sight of God. We are standing together United as one before the Holy Throne We are standing together right in the sight of God. We praise the King of Kings We praise the Lord of Lords He is Holy! He is Holy! He is Holy! The Lord our God! We praise the King of Kings We praise the Lord of Lords He is Holy! He is Holy! He is Holy! The Lord our God! (He is Holy!) We are standing together United as one before the Holy Throne We are standing together right in the sight of God. We are standing together United as one before the Holy Throne We are standing together right in the sight of God. He is Holy! He is Holy! He is Holy!

As I look back at Christ's life on this earth I find comfort when I read of his birth and it inspires me when I read that he died for me I read of his ministry and I can feel glad that he's still reaching out to those who are sad I get inspired to write of his love for me Chorus: He's my Divine Inspiration (He put the words in my mouth) He puts a song in my soul. And with his hand to guide me (all the way to Heaven) Heaven is my supreme goal. We read in the Bible of his works and how he's always there where evil lurks He's there to catch us every time we fall. We strive daily to work for the Lord and walk our paths by the light of his word. We try our best to be like him every day. Chorus Bridge: I can't believe that a man would die for a wretch like me So its my duty to be an example for all the world to see Chorus

Chorus: Oh how great is my reward that I'll receive from Christ on high! How magnificent is your name! I will praise it 'til I die! How I long to be with my Lord and stand by his side. Now I see that Heaven's gates are standing open wide! Chorus Oh I know that he will help me out and show me all his love and I'll one day be with my Lord in Heaven above! Chorus

In the Bible we read of Christ's healing touch how he made the lame to walk and cleansed the leper's spots They just believed on his name, and they gave him the praise and also from the dead did Christ many raise Chorus: Healing touch (we need it) healing touch my Jesus has that healing touch Healing touch (Yes!) healing touch my Jesus has that healing touch I was gashed and bleeding by Satan's sword I was bruised and wounded and without the word but I just prayed to my Jesus whom I love so much and he delivered precious healing touch Chorus If you are lost and wounded and are living in sin just obey my Jesus and be cleansed within. He will answer your prayers if you will only do such Yes, he'll deliver precious healing touch Chorus

Thank you, God, for everything that you've ever done especially for the sacrificing of your only son. I know sometimes it seems like I don't care at all. But how could I forget that without your son I would fall. Chorus: Because he's Jesus, Christ my Lord. Jesus, Christ my Lord. He bled and died upon the cruel cross of Calvary. Those who killed him didn't know he had set them free. Sometimes we take for granted the love shared by the son but I know that someday because of him the victory will be won. Because he's Jesus, Christ my Lord. All because he's Jesus, Christ my Lord. Because he's Jesus, Christ my Lord. All because he's Jesus, Christ my Lord.

I know that someday we will make it to Heaven. I know this by the lives that we've lived. I know someday we will meet him in Glory and he will give us the gift he promised he'd give. Chorus: I'll see you at the top of your life! (Gonna see you up in Heaven!) I'll see you at the top of your life! (Gonna see you at the top!) I'll see you at the top of your life! (I'll see you at the top!) I'll see you at the top of your life! I can't describe this joy that I'm feeling because Heaven is just a step away. We'll rise into the air and he will greet us and we will be in Heaven to stay Chorus

We need love in return I pray that everyone will learn to share the love that they receive so that all may believe. Chorus: We need love Because that is what he is. We need love Father please, please teach me to be what you want me to be. Don't let them see me. I pray that you are all they see. Chorus Bridge: They should know us by the love we give away. They should see our love every hour of every day. They look at us, hoping they will see the Father And HE IS LOVE. We must have love for everyone Until our lives on earth are done. Show the love shared by the son when he prayed that we be one. Chorus
12.
I love the Lord. He loves me, too. And I want to let you know that he will also love you (He loves you, too.) (He loves you, too.) Through his grace I'll see his face and I won't be ashamed to claim he's mine. Its the right time to praise his Holy name. (I'm in God's love) Chorus: Happily ever after in his love. Yes in his love. And we'll live happily ever after in his love. Yes, in God's love! I see my life. He sees it, too. and we also see my sin and wonder what will I do? (What will I do?) (What will I do?) Through his grace I'll see his face and I won't be ashamed to claim he's mine. It's the right time to praise his Holy name. (I'm in God's love) Chorus Bridge: We won't worry anymore because we'll be over on Heaven's shore. Chorus

Each day as we try to live by God's word we are put to the test by those around us. We must carry our cross as we share our faith for this is what God's word commands us When it seems like you're alone, ask the Lord for strength He will carry you through. He will not leave you. He's our sword and our shield. He's our strength when we yield so never give up. He'll always be there. Chorus: Because we're Lions! We're Lions of God Spreading the Gospel of Jesus through song! Yes we're Lions! We're Lions of God putting our trust in whom there is no wrong! Let's lift up our voice in a world full of sin and pray that we'll make a difference. Many are looking for God if we'll just show the way. We can change the hearts of those around us. Each have our special way of sharing our faith if we'll just stand up and use it. For we must live by his word and we must tell of his word. It's up to us to make a difference. Chorus
