I have a brother and sister and also Mum and Dad,
Sometimes they come and go so much it makes me kind of sad,

We want to spend some special time alone with you today.
And we call it our time,
We call it our time.
Time when it’s just us, our time
Just you and me time, and though others might fuss,
My Mum and Dad will simply say today is not your time,
We promise that your turn will come
But today is just, it’s really just our time
When Jesus finished creation,
The sixth day of the week
The seventh day his work was done
He rested so to speak
He gave the world the Sabbath to remember it was He who made all things upon the
earth
His wonders we can see
And we call it God’s time,
We call it God’s time.
Time to sing His praise, God’s time,
Just God and me time, time to learn of His ways,
He’ll never have to say too bad, today is not your time.
He is God and I am His child.
The Sabbath is, it always is, God’s time.
My time, Our time.
21. What’s Mine is Yours
Only you can make a tree , Only you can make it grow,
Only you can send the rain, Only you can make cause the wind to blow,
You own everything there is, In this world you made for me,
I have just one question, Is there something I can do for you?
Something just for you?
God’s answer – Yes my child you’ve got a part
In the car of all my trees,
You can keep the branches trimmed,
You can gather up all the falling leaves
Though the world and everything, really does belong to me,
What is mine is yours now, I have given it all to you
Yes it’s just for you
Only you give birds their song, only you give owls their hoot
Only you make kittens purr, Only you can give the cow her moo,
You gives all these gifts for us, For your children to enjoy
There remains one question,
Is there something I can do for you?
Something just for you?
God’s answer – Yes my children scatter seeds . . .
I’ve entrusted them to you. Be my steward be my friend,
‘Cause what’s mine is all yours now, Just take care of all I’ve given you
All I’ve given you
God answer - Yes my children scatter seeds,
For the birds in winters cold,
Take good care of all your pets,
Without ever having to be told,
I’ve entrusted them to you.
Be my steward be my friend,
‘Cause what’s mine is all yours now,
Just take care of all I’ve given you
All I’ve given you
There are times when I get cash, For the work I do for Dad,
I could buy things for myself, Spending every single bit I have,
Yet I think of all your gifts, time in the morning, talents too,
And I know for sure Lord, There are things that I can do for you,
Lots of things for you,
All my gifts for you
Things I’d love to do for you.
22. Trash In. Trash Out
Verse 1
My body is a temple that’s what the Bible reads.
It means I should be careful to give it what it needs,
I have to exercise it and give it lots of rest,
Because the one who made me,
He always knows the best.
Chorus
Trash in, trash out, oh what can I expect?
When I make bad choices I suffer the effects.
Trash in, trash out, will make the body weak,
I’d rather treat my temple right, so I perform at peak.
Verse 2
Let’s eat fruits and greens and vegies and bread and pasta too.
They give me strength to play hard at what I like to do.
But I have lots of choices.
Sometimes I choose the junk like chips and pop and ice-cream and chocolate by the
chunk.
Chorus
Trash in trash out don’t make a big mistake,
There are health choices that also taste just great.
Trash in trash out, now there’s something for life.
It pays to take care of yourself one body is all you’ve got.
Verse 3
If I don’t treat my temple, the way that Jesus taught
When I just gobble junk food,
my body gets distraught.
I cannot build strong muscles if I just sit all day,
So I can see that Jesus does know the better way.
Chorus
If I don’t treat my temple, the way that Jesus taught
When I just gobble junk food, my body gets distraught.
I cannot build strong muscles if I just sit all day,
So I can see that Jesus does know the better way.
23. That’s a Promise
Verse 1
Jesus said, Love never ends
And that’s a promise
He’ll never leave or forsake you
He’ll always be your friend
Jesus said, I’ll stick with you
And that’s a promise, through thick and thin
No matter what, right up to the end
Chorus
Because a promise means commitment
Something you must keep
If you’re not sure, don’t make one
For promises go deep
A promise means commitment ,and forever keep
So if you say I promise, there’s no bargaining
Married folks say I do, and that’s a promise
Each promises is to honour, to love until the end
Verse 2
Parents say, I’ll care for you
And that’s a promise, they’ll do their best to meet your needs
On them you depend
Because a promise means commitment
Something you must keep
If you’re not sure
Don’t make one
For promises go deep
Chorus
Verse 3
Mary heard Josephs prayer
And that was a promise
And though he did not understand
He’d given his word
Because a promise means commitment
Something you must keep
If you’re not sure
Don’t make one
For promises go deep
Chorus
A promise means commitment ,And forever keep
So if you say I promise ,There’s no bargaining
When you make a promise
It’s a sacred thing
24. The Judges Court

There’s an awesome place
In the heavenly courts
Where Jesus speaks for me

And it’s there he sets me free
Chorus

Deep in my heart I’m sad
Forgive me I humbly pray
Forgiveness makes me glad
Verse 2
Let me tell you how I know it’s true
I read it in first John 1:9
It says if I confess my sins
He’ll forgive me every time
Chorus
Forgive me when I’ve done wrong
Deep in my heart I’m sad
Forgive me I humbly pray
Forgiveness makes me glad
Verse 3
When I make mistakes
No one else is to blame
And it’s hard to understand
Why would Jesus live,
Then lay dead on the cross
Did it go just as he planned?
Chorus
Verse 4
Thank you Jesus
You’re my Saviour and friend
There is no one who loves me more
Help me want to live for you each day
I don’t want to sin anymore
Chorus
Forgive me when I’ve done wrong
Deep in my heart I’m sad
Forgive me I humbly pray
Forgiveness makes me glad
25. He’s Coming
Verse 1
Have you heard the good news, Christ is coming again soon
I can’t wait to see him, ‘cause He is my best friend
Have you told, someone else that we’ll soon see his face
That greatest event ever, is just about to take place
Chorus
He’s coming, He’s coming,
He’s coming back again
He’s coming, I tell you,
He’s coming back my friend
He’s coming, He’s coming,
Watch for that bright cloud
He’s coming, I’m certain,
He’s coming back I know.

The sounds of birds are bright with cheer
The flowers appear in the morning dew
The clouds are all gone for winter is through

To a special place prepared just for us
We’re going home to a heavenly home
Hallelujah, hallelujah, we’re going home
Verse 2
The day will come when the trumpet will sound
The asleep in Christ will come out of the ground
And all of the dead will awaken up
The trumpets sound, we’re going home
Verse 3
I know I’ll see my grandma and gran
For it’s all part of God’s great plan
Off with the time with the great I am
I shout with the King with the Lord of the lamb
27. No More Bad Stuff
Did you know in heaven there will be no bad stuff,
When Jesus comes back he’ll say that’s enough.
Then the tears and sadness must all go away,
Instead we will smile and be happy every day.
No more bad stuff will live on and on.
No more bad stuff, all the pain will be gone.
Jesus wants me to show his love,
The evil is gone, there will be no more bad stuff.
28. What Time is Forever
Verse 1
How much time is forever, I don’t understand,
Forever never has an end then heaven must be great,
The Bible says, there’s no night there, and that’s OK with me,
Cause I can play whenever I want with the animals you see.
Chorus
Forever never ever ends in heaven,
Forever is for always in the promised land.
No need to have a clock up there reminding us of time,
Forever, never is beyond all reason and rhyme.
Verse 2
Just what time is forever, there is no way to say,
Since forever just keeps going on
Eternity’s a day.
We eat fruit from the tree of life, we’ll even get to fly.
To be with Jesus is the best, to never say goodbye.
Chorus
Forever never ever ends in heaven,
Forever is for always in the promised land.
No need to have a clock up there reminding us of time,
Forever, never is beyond all reason and rhyme.
