    Kickin' It Old School
    Jamison J. Statema
    2009 Found Free Music (ASCAP)

    Verse 1
    Come one, come all don’t miss the latest craze
    Hit it for a minute then it’s on to the next phase
    Easy come easy go the marketers will hock it
    The only change that comes winds up in a pocket
    Hop on the wagon, try the hip thing
    All the while you’re missin’ all the joy that God can bring

    Chorus
    You can take the new stuff
    You can keep the fluff
    The Bible is our tool
    And we’re here to kick it old school
    Here we go
    You know we’re goin’ retro
    We’re cool as a rule
    Yeah, we kick it old school 

    Verse 2
    Relevantly emerging like a moldy piece of bread
    You act as if the Holy Word of God is all but dead
    All we need to know is right there on the pages
    Why are we obsessed with who the guy on the stage is
    Dance the hottest dance, get the latest buzzy
    You're gonna find out Jesus wasn’t very fuzzy was He

    Chorus

    Bridge
    If you believe the Bible is true
    You’re kickin’ it old school
    Life is not all about you
    You’re kickin’ it old school
    If you know you’re in a bad spot
    You’re kickin’ it old school
    And you need the grace that God’s got
    You’re kickin’ it old school
    You pray to God on your knees
    You’re kickin’ it old school
    You make no apologies
    For kickin’ it old school
    There’s one more thing to say
    If you’re kickin’ it old school
    Jesus is the only way

    Chorus A
    You can take the new stuff
    You can keep the fluff
    The Bible is our tool
    And we’re here to kick it old school
    Here we go
    You know we’re goin’ retro
    We’re cool as a rule
    Yeah, we kick it old school

    Chorus B
    You can say we’re strange
    But we’re never gonna change
    To when the Bible was our tool
    We kick it old school
    We get the crowd jumpin
    We’re Bible thumpin’
    God still rules
    We kick it old school

    And it satisfies my longings as nothing else can do

    Sweet, sweet song of salvation
    And let your laughter fill the air
    Sing that sweet, sweet song of salvation

    It seems each time I tell it
    It’s more wonderfully sweet
    Oh I love to tell the story
    For some have never heard
    The message of salvation from God’s own holy Word

    Sweet, sweet song of salvation
    And let your laughter fill the air
    Sing that sweet, sweet song of salvation
    And tell the people everywhere
    Sing that sweet, sweet song of salvation

    I’m A Soldier In The Army Of The Lord

    I’m a soldier in the army of the Lord
    I’m a soldier in the army

    I’ve got my war clothes on
    In the army of the Lord
    I’ve got my war clothes on
    In the army
    I’ve got my war clothes on
    In the army of the Lord
    I’ve got my war clothes on
    In the army

    I’m a soldier in the army of the Lord
    I’m a soldier in the army

    I’ve got my breastplate on
    In the army of the Lord
    I’ve got my helmet on
    In the army
    I’ve got my sword and shield
    In the army of the Lord
    His truth is marching on
    Bring it on

    I’m a soldier in the army of the Lord
    I’m a soldier in the army

    I’m in the Lord’s army
    Yes Sir!
    I’m in the Lord’s army
    Yes Sir!
    I may never March in the infantry
    But I’m in the Lord’s army
    Yes Sir!

    I’m gonna fight until I die
    In the army of the Lord
    I’m gonna fight until I die
    In the army
    I’m gonna fight until I die
    In the army of the Lord
    I’m gonna fight until I die
    In the army

    This Is My Father's World

    Public Domain / Additional Words and Music by Jamison J. Statema

     

    This is my Father’s world

    And to my listening ears

    All nature sings and ‘round me rings

    The music of the spheres

     

    This is my Father’s world

    I rest me in the thought

    Of rocks and trees of skies and seas

    His hand the wonders wrought

     

    This is my Father’s world

    The birds their carols raise

    The morning light, the lily white

    Declare their Maker’s praise

     

    This is my Father’s world

    He shines in all that’s fair

    In the rustling grass I hear Him pass

    He speaks to me everywhere

     

    This is my Father’s world

    Even those up on the throne

    They exist for Him alone

    This is my Father’s world

    It was made to give Him praise

    And you can’t take that away

     

    This is my Father’s world

    Oh, let me ne’er forget

    That though the wrong seems oft so strong

    God is the ruler yet

    And though the wrong seems oh, so strong

    God is the ruler yet!

     

    This is my Father’s world

    Why should my heart be sad?

    The Lord is King let the heavens ring

    God reigns let the earth be glad!

    The Lord is King let the heavens ring

    God reigns let the earth be glad!

     

    This is my Father’s world

    The rocks and the trees

    And the skies and the seas

    This is my Father’s world

    Created by Him for Him

    This is my Father’s world

    Even those up on the throne

    They exist for Him alone

    This is my Father’s world

    The Lord is the King let the heavens ring

    This is my Father’s world!

  5. Lyrics

     

    OLD RUGGED CROSS

     

    On a hill far away

    Stood an old rugged cross

    The emblem of suffering and shame

    And I love that old cross

    Where the dearest and best

    For a world of lost sinners was slain

     

    So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross

    ‘Til my trophies at last I lay down

    I will cling to the old rugged cross

    And exchange it someday for a crown

     

    To the old rugged cross

    I will ever be true

    It’s shame and reproach gladly bear

    Then He’ll call me someday

    To my home far away

    Where His glory forever I’ll share

     

    So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross

    ‘Til my trophies at last I lay down

    I will cling to the old rugged cross

    And exchange it someday for a crown

     

    Glory to His name

    Glory to His name

    There on that cross was the blood applied

    Glory to His name

    Glory to His name

    Glory to His name

    There on that cross was the blood applied

    Glory to His name

     

    So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross

    ‘Til my trophies at last I lay down

    I will cling to the old rugged cross

    And exchange it someday for a crown
