    When King Jesus Calls His Children Home

    Words and Music by Naomi Judd

    When they plant me like a seed in the ground
    In silent sleep beneath some mossy mound
    I'll be like a rose just waitin' for the spring
    'Cause I'm a gonna rise up, rise up, shout and sing

    'Cause there ain't no grave gonna hold my body down
    When I hear, I hear that trumpet sound
    I know I've been a dyin' since the day that I was born
    But now I'm living for that resurrection morn'

    (Chorus)

    When King Jesus calls his children home
    When King Jesus calls his children home
    I'm a gonna wear my snow white gown
    I'm gonna put on a starry crown
    When King Jesus calls his children home

    Like a bird in a cage that's been set free
    My soul will sing throughout eternity
    I'll shed this mortal shell, oh, let ol' Satan stay in hell
    I'll see glory that no human tongue can tell

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Ye know not the hour
    Ye know not the day
    So, be humble, my children
    Hide and watch and pray

    (Repeat Chorus)
    (Repeat Chorus)

    Guardian Angel

    Words and Music by: Naomi Judd, John Jarvis and Don Schlitz

    A hundred year old photograph
    Stares out from a frame
    And if you look real close you'll see
    Our eyes are just the same
    I never met them face to face
    But I still know them well
    From the stories
    My dear grandma would tell

    Elijah was a farmer
    He knew how to make things grow
    Fannie vowed she'd follow him
    Wherever he would go
    As things turned out they never left
    Their small Kentucky farm
    But he kept her fed
    She kept him warm

    (Chorus)

    There my guardian angels
    And I know they can see
    Ev'ry step I take
    They are watching over me
    I might not know where I'm goin'
    But I'm sure where I come from
    There my guardian angels
    And I'm their special one

    Sometimes when I'm tired
    I feel Elijah take my arm
    He says, "Keep a-goin', hard work
    Never did a body harm."
    And when I'm really troubled
    And I don't know what to do
    Fannie whispers, "Just do your best, We're awful proud of you!"

    (Chorus)

    A hundred year old photograph
    Stares out from a frame
    And if you look real close you'll see
    Our eyes are just the same

    The Sweetest Gift

    Words and Music by J.B. Coats

    One day a mother
    Come to a prison
    To see an 'erring
    But precious son
    She told the warden
    How much she loved him
    It did not matter
    What he had done

    She did not bring to him
    (Bring to him)
    Parole or pardon
    (Pardon free)
    She brought no silver
    (Brought no gold)
    No pomp nor style
    (Him to see)
    It was a halo
    (Halo bright)
    Sent down from heaven
    (Heaven's light)
    The sweetest gift
    (A mother's smile)

    Her boy had wandered
    Far from the far side
    Though she had pleaded
    With him each night
    But not a word did
    She ever utter
    That told her heartaches
    Her smile was bright

    (Repeat Chorus)

    She left a smile
    You can remember
    She's gone to heaven
    From heartache's free
    Them bars around you
    Will never change her
    He was her baby
    An error will be

    (Repeat Chorus)

    It was a halo bright
    Sent down from heaven's light
    The sweetest gift
    A mother's smile

    Beautiful Star Of Bethlehem

    Words and Music by A.L. Phipps

    Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem
    Shinning far through shadows dimmed
    Giving the life for those who long have gone on
    Guiding the wise men on their way
    Unto the place where Jesus lay
    Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on

    Oh beautiful star the hope of light
    Guiding the pilgrims through the night
    Over the mountains 'till the break of dawn
    Into the land of perfect day
    It will give out a lovely ray
    Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on

    Oh beautiful star (beautiful, beautiful star) of Bethlehem
    Star of Bethlehem
    Shine upon us until the glory dawn
    Give us a lamp to light the way
    Unto the land of perfect day
    Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on

    Oh beautiful star the hope, the grace
    For the redeem of good and blessed
    Yonder in glory when the crowd is one
    Jesus is now the star divine
    Brighter and brighter he will shine
    Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on

    (Repeat Chorus)
    Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on

    Love Can Build A Bridge

    Words and Music by Naomi Judd, John Jarvis and Paul Overstreet

    I'd gladly walk across the desert
    With no shoes upon my feet
    To share with you the last bite
    Of bread I had to eat
    I would swim out to save you
    In your sea of broken dreams
    When all your hopes are sinkin'
    Let me show you what love means

    (Chorus)

    Love can build a bridge
    Between your heart and mine
    Love can build a bridge
    Don't you think it's time?
    Don't you think it's time?

    I would whisper love so loudly
    Every heart could understand
    That love and only love
    Can join the tribes of man
    I would give my heart's desire
    So that you might see
    The first step is to realize
    That it all begins with you and me

    (Repeat Chorus)

    When we stand together
    It's our finest hour
    We can do anything, anything
    Keep believin' in the power

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Love and only love
    Love and only love

    I Know Where I'm Going

    Words and Music by Don Schlitz Craig Bickhart and Brent Maher

    I know where I'm goin'
    Don't you want to come too?
    I got my reservations
    And I got one for you
    The train's leavin' just after dark
    There's always room for a lovin' heart
    I know where I'm goin'
    Don't you wanna come too?

    I know my destination
    It's a' waiting for you
    I got no hesitation
    That's where I want to be
    And by the time that the sun comes up
    I'll be drinkin' from a lovin' cup
    I know where I'm goin'
    Don't you want to come too?

    (Chorus)

    Don't you wanna come?
    Don't you wanna ride?
    Don't you wanna be there by my side?
    Hand in hand
    Holding on to
    The sweet salvation
    That's waiting for me and you

    I know why I'm singin'
    Don't you want to sing too?
    Can't you hear the bells a ringin'?
    Let the spirit move you

    Just close your eyes and let it flow
    Lean your head back, let it go
    I know where I'm goin'
    Don't you wanna come too?

    (Repeat Chorus)

    I know where I'm goin'
    Don't you wanna come too?
    I got my reservations
    And I got one for you
    I know why I'm singin'
    Don't you want to sing too?
    Can't you hear the bells a ringin'?
    Let the spirit move you
    Spirit move you, yeah

    I know where I'm goin'
    Don't you wanna come too?
    I know where I'm goin'
    Don't you wanna come too?

    River Of Time

    Words by: Naomi Judd
    Music by: John Jarvis

    I'm holding back a flood of tears
    Just thinking 'bout those happy years
    Like all the good times that are no more
    My love is gone...gone...gone forever more

    Silence so deep only my soul can hear
    Says now the past is what I fear
    The future isn't what it used to be
    Only today is all that's promised me

    Flow on, river of time
    Wash away the pain and heal my mind
    Flow on, river of time
    Carry me away
    And leave it all far behind
    Flow on river of time

    We're all driven by the winds of change
    Seems like nothing ever stays the same
    It's fate that guides me around the bend
    Life's forever beginning, beginning again

    Flow on, river of time
    Wash away the pain and heal my mind
    Flow on, river of time
    Carry me away
    And leave it all far behind
    Flow on river of time

    Carry me away and heal my mind
    Flow on river of time
    Carry me away and heal my mind
    Flow on river of time
    Flow on
    Carry me away and heal my mind
    Flow on river of time
    Flow on
    Flow on river of time

    Who Is This Babe

    Words and Music by Don Potter

    Who is this baby
    Where did he come from
    He's the son of a carpenter
    The chosen one
    He's the hope of the angels
    A gift of his love
    Just a child in a manger
    Gods only son

    Hallelujah, hallelujah
    Hallelujah, hallelujah

    Shepards were watching
    Out under the sky
    When the star over Bethlehem
    Lit up the night
    He's the light in the darkness
    A gift from above
    He is held with the spirit
    Of Gods holy love

    Hallelujah, hallelujah
    Hallelujah, hallelujah

    Angels sing
    Worship our king
