There Will Be a Day by Jeremy Camp Dedicated to Those We've Lost and Love

Steve Lonergan, Jim Gleeson, Gabe LeDuc, Joe Capriotti

Our Friends In This Life and The Next

There Will Be A Day by Jeremy Camp

I try to hold on to this world with everything I have
But I feel the weight of what it brings, and the hurt that tries to grab
The many trials that seem to never end, His word declares this truth,
that we will enter in this rest with wonders anew

But I hold on to this hope and the promise that He brings
That there will be a place with no more suffering

Chorus: There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place, will be no more, we'll see Jesus face to face but until that day, we'll hold on to you always

I know the journey seems so long. You feel you’re walking on your own
But there has never been a step where you’ve walked out all alone
Troubled soul don’t lose your heart cause joy and peace he brings
And the beauty that’s in store outweighs the hurt of life’s sting. But I hold on to this hope and the promise that He brings. That there will be a place with no more suffering


I can’t wait until that day where the very one I’ve lived for always will wipe away the sorrow that I’ve faced. To touch the scars that rescued me from a life of shame and misery this is why this is why I sing

Pray it Off 06/23/2011 Song - God Will Take Care of You by David Phelps

God Will Take Care Of You by David Phelps

You don’t say a word, but I know you’re so afraid
Trying hard to take a step of faith.
You’re so confused and you’re so alone
Standing face to face with the unknown.

Every need you have God already knows about it.
Still He longs to hear from you.
I believe if you put your trust in Him
That is where the road of faith begins.


'Cause if His eye is on the sparrow when it comes to me and you
There is no place He won’t go
And nothing He won’t do.
Like a mother cradles a child
His grace covers us somehow.
So whatever you go through
God will take care of you.

Change is never easy; but it’s just part of living.
There’s so much more that we can see.
A higher place so far above it all
Is ours when we’re faithful to His call.


We don’t know.
We don’t have to understand.
The how’s, the why’s, the when’s
Give it all to Him.

Pray it Off 06/17/2011 Song - Ok by Rebecca St. James

OK by Rebecca St. James

Inwardly, I
See your smile
And I reach for, I reach for it
'Cause I know it's all gonna be ok

It's all gonna be okay, okay, OK
that is why I always say
It's all gonna be OK

I want to,
Cover you with presents
But my love is all I have
So take me, take me now
'Cause I know you'll not abandon me
You will complete what's begun in me

It's all gonna be okay, okay, OK
That is why I always say
It's all gonna be okay now
It's all gonna be OK

As I,
Come closer now
Hold me
And wipe away my tears
Hold me...Oh

It's all gonna be okay, okay, OK
That is why I always say
It's OK
