Lyrics

Verse 1

I’m not givin’ up, I won’t give-in to insanity.
 
 
I’m not givin’ up when things aren’t what they should be.
 
 
I’m not givin’ up just when I could have victory
 
 
I’m not givin’ up just because I’m scared.

Chorus

‘Cause I know, I know, I know You’re right beside me.
I know, I know, Your love is right behind me.
I know, I know, You never will forsake me.
I know, I know, I know when God is for me…who can be against me?

Verse 2

I’m not givin’ up, I won’t yield to mediocrity.
I’m not givin’ up when I act so inconsistently.
I’m not givin’ up when everyone just can’t agree
I’m not givin’ up when the odds are so unfair.

Bridge

What can separate us from that love?
Who can separate us from that love?
Nothing can separate us from that love?
No one can separate us from that love?

Lyrics

Verse 1

Nancy, don’t you know you’re accountable?
Nancy, why don’t you look to the Bible?

You see, in Romans 1 we come to discern
That all men know of God
And in Psalm 139 we can easily find
That all men should come to learn -- that

Verse 2

Nancy, His works are wonderful!
Oh Nancy, don’t you know that it’s
            You and me
            Who are fearfully,
            And wonderfully,
            And skillfully made
By Him.

Verse 3

Well, now you know, Nancy.  Can you come to see it?
Oh Nancy, can you come to believe it?

Jesus died so that we might live
And to take away our sin.
He was in a grave.
But now I can say that
He is alive again!

Verse 4

Oh Nancy, you know I believe it.
Oh Nancy, you know, I’ve received it.

And as my life goes by
And I finally die
And I go to see Adonai
Well, what about you?
Will I see you, too?
Are you going to live in the sky?

Oh Nancy, are you going to Heaven?
Oh Nancy, will I see you in Heaven?

Lyrics

(based on Job 12:7ff)

 Verse 1

You can ask the beasts, and let them teach you;
The birds of the heavens, and let them tell you.
Or speak to the earth, and let it teach you;
And let the fish of the sea declare it to you.

Chorus A

Who among all these (you) does not know the hand of God
Has accomplished all that is accomplished?
In His own hand is every living thing…
Even the breath of all mankind.

Chorus B

There is only one God over all,
Only one Who is Abba, Father!
There is only one God over all,
Only one Who is Abba, Father! Abba, Father! 
Abba Father!

Verse 2

Open up your eyes and look all around.
So much evidence that God can be found.
Everything He made leaves man without excuse,
Reject Divine reality and you will surely lose.

Story

Elisabeth sat at the piano in the studio one day and began playing with these themes.  Jim Cummings (our producer) decided to record as she played and it turned out to be a nice addition to the project.
