Jairus’s Daughter Words and music by Susan Mack It was many years ago, when a man named Christ Jesus walked the eatth. And he healed like he breathed, and he lived with such power, That the multitude followed like the light draws the flower, And he wrapped them up in the arms of God’s love And he showed them they were whole. Now a man named Jairus came to him for his daughter was very ill, And he thought she would die, and he tried not to cry. But someone came to say that she’d died just that day, And he wrapped him up in the arms of God’s love And showed him she was whole. Then Jesus came to the house where the young maiden was laid, And the people, they cried, for they knew she had died. But the Master, he said, “Do not cry, she’s not dead.” And he wrapped them up in the arms of God’s love And he showed them they were whole. When Jesus came to her room, he took her by the hand And he said, “Maid, arise, you’re not dead, you’re alive.” Then she sat up in bed. The call went out, “She’s not dead!” And he wrapped her up in the arms of God’s love And he showed her she was whole. The Christ is with us today, and it shows us God is Life. It is here. It is now, and it’s telling us how We can prove God is All and from Life never fall. And it wraps us up in the arms of God’s love And it shows us we are whole.
Mercy 03:23
Mercy Words and music by Susan Mack Verse 1 They must have heard for their eyes could not see That the Master had healed throughout all Galilee. Their cry was more urgent as they pressed to draw near, These two nameless blind men, reaching out for his care. Chorus Mercy, oh mercy! Thou Son of David, have mercy on me. Cleanse all my sorrow and sickness and sin. Oh God, release me from this condemnation. Verse 2 Somehow they managed to follow him inside, Came right up to him, but he did no chide. Then Jesus asked them just one question of trust, Do you believe that I can really do this? Chorus Mercy, oh mercy! Thou Son of David, have mercy on me. God’s grace of mercy shines to one and to all No condemnation here, no sinner, no fall. Verse 3 They answered simply, without hesitation, Yes, Lord, they both said with expectation. He touched their eyes as a sign that it was true. According to you faith be it unto you. Chorus Oh, mercy, oh, mercy! Their eyes were opened. What a joy that they could see. Could see the Master smiling tenderly at them. Could know God’s love to his children never ends. Mercy, oh, mercy! It flows around us like a river to the sea. As we are merciful God’s mercy we see. I brings our hearts to know eternal harmony.
Only a Mother Words and music by Susan Mack Verse 1 She came out of Nain; the crowd bore her on. Her footsteps were heavy, tears fell to the ground. Her son on the bier was so lifeless and still. How would she survive even one more meal? Chorus Only a mother would know how it feels To lose a child, your only son. Only a mothering Principle, Love, Could come as the Christ and restore them to one. Only our mothering, fathering God Reveals that the kingdom is come. Verse 2 It didn’t take long as the Master came close, For his heart to respond with compassion and love. His words were so simple, so tender and pure. “Weep not, now, dear woman, there is nothing to fear.” Chorus He came to the bier. His touch stopped the parade. “Arise!” he commanded. The son sat up without aid And he spoke to the crowd that was breathless with awe; “God is one with his people through His life that is law.” Chorus
Fear Thou Not Words by Susan Mack Music is a traditional tune Oh, fear thou not, for I am here! I’ll give thee strength and endless cheer. Be not dismayed, I am thy God, My righteousness, a saving rod. Our God is Principle, our God is Mind And man is held in Truth divine, Without a pain and without a tear, So free from guilt and free from fear. Established in omnipotence, Known as the thought of omniscience, Surrounded by ever presence here, All grace and good forever near. Come Spirit, Life, thou All-in-all. We cannot miss your steadfast call, To leave the dream and awake to know From your embrace we cannot go. With grateful hearts and joy unbound, We lift our voice in endless round Of praise to Thee, our precious Love, That lifts our sense to Soul above.
Rejoice 03:30
Rejoice (also recorded as Grateful Hearts Unbounded) Words and Music by Susan Mack Arranged by The Solo Committee Verse 1 He came into their village, ten lepers stood afar. Cut off from friends and family, unclean, cast out, debarred. With hope they called to Jesus, with love he turned their way; His certainty of healing shone out just like a ray. Chorus Grateful hearts unbounded, lift your voice in song, Giving thanks to our Source of good to whom we each belong. Rejoice! Rejoice! Ye people, now rejoice! Our very being urges us will all our hearts, rejoice! Verse 2 Go show yourselves to the priest, my friends, he’ll say that you are clean. Apparently, without a word, they went in trust unseen And as they went, each one of them was cleansed of his disease; Unclean no more, in pain no more, at last to live life free. Verse 3 But what then of the one man who came back to give God thanks? Where were the other nine? Did they not care the same? Or were there no ungrateful men from where Christ Jesus stood? The viewpoint of the Christ beholds one man, forever good
What is Truth? Words and music by Susan Mack Ages have passed and the question still remains. Wise men have pondered it and echoed its refrain. What is Truth? Oh, what is Truth? Pilot asked our Lord. This is Truth! Oh, this is Truth! Jesus answered in these words: To know one God and all as held in Thee. Ye shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free. Einstein believed there was some grand unity. Physicists they plumb the depths of those tiny particles. What is Truth? Oh, what is Truth? None can get it right. This is Truth! Oh, this is Truth! The healing Christ sheds the light. To know one God, and all as held in Thee. Ye shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free. The human mind will never know, from its separated sense, What Truth reveals so naturally, that there’s only present tense. What is Truth? Oh, what is Truth? The mind that questions cannot know. This is Truth! Oh, this is Truth! The Mind that says it knows it’s so. I am One God and All is held in Me. As I know the Truth then My knowingness is free. Ye shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free.
Choose Good 02:50
Choose Good Words and music by Susan Mack Verse 1 Did you know that the stuff of this world is illusion? That it piles itself up ‘till in all its confusion, It seems most impressive and certainly real. You can see it and hear it, taste, smell it and feel. But… Chorus Choose good, the substantial, the unchanging. Choose good, the spiritual and pure. Choose good, the immortal and undying. Choose good, for God’s goodness is wholeness so sure. Verse 2 The premise that is matter has a witness that’s not true. Its foundation is flawed, an enigma without clue. Its deceptions are graphic and admittedly impressive, But the lie and the liar, they are one and self-destructive. So.. Chorus. The opposite of good is not evil but illusion. The flip side of health is not disease but false impression. We have no real connection with the fleeting and mesmeric. Right where seems distortion is the joyous and the lyric. Oh.. Chorus
Behold 02:29
Behold Words and music by Susan Mack Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, That we should be called the sons of God: Behold! Behold! Therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God. Behold! Behold! And it doth not yet appear what we shall be, But we know that when he shall appear, We shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. Behold! Behold! And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, Even as he is pure. Behold! Behold! Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us!
Cause Me 02:35
Cause Me Words by Susan Mack Music is traditional Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning. Cause me to feel the strength of Soul as I am soaring. Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk. Cause me to trust that only God can talk. God be merciful unto us and bless us; And cause his face to shine upon us. That Your way may be known upon earth, Your saving health among all nations. Cause me to know that You are all and there is none else. Cause me to trust and to be ever fearless. Cause me to love every one of my brethren. And Cause me to know them as Your precious children. I will restore health unto you And heal you of your wounds. Look unto me and be saved All the ends of the earth. Amen. Amen. Amen.
