Not of this World
Letra e Música: Bob Hartman
Baseada em 2 Pedro 2:11, João 15:18-19, João 16:33, Mateus 16:18, João 14:3


We are pilgrims in a strange land
We are so far from our homeland
With each passing day it seems so clear
This world will never want us here
We’re not welcome in this world of wrong
We are foreigners who don’t belong

(Chorus)
We are strangers, we are aliens
We are not of this world

We are envoys, we must tarry
With this message we must carry
There’s so much to do before we leave
With so many more who may believe
Our mission here can never fail
And the gates of hell will not prevail

Jesus told us men would hate us
But we must be of good cheer
He has overcome this world of darkness
And soon we will depart from here

Bema Seat
Letra e Música: Bob Hartman
Baseado em Romanos 14:10, 1 Coríntios 3:12-15, Romanos 14:10, 1 Coríntios 3:12-15


When our labor all retire
There will be a trial by fire
Will your treasure pass the test
Or will it burn up with the rest
You may build upon a sure foundation
With your building in dilapidation
When it all comes down to rubble
Will it be wood, hay, or stubble
Or precious stones, gold and silver-
Are you really sure?

(Chorus)
And we all will stand at the Bema Seat
All will be revealed – it will be complete
Will there be reward in the fiery heat
When we see our lives at the Bema Seat

Every talent will be sure counted
Every word will have to be accounted
Not a story will be left untold
We will stand watch the truth unfold
Every score – will be evened – nothing to defend

Every building will be shaken
Every motive will be tried
He’ll give reward to the faithful
Will you receive or be denied?

Graverobber
Letra e Música: Bob Hartman
Baseado em Hebreus 9:27, João 4:14, 1 Pedro 1:24, Romanos 8:11, 1 Coríntios 15:26, 51-55, Apocalipse 7:17


There’s a step that we all take alone
An appointment we have with the great unknown
Like a vapor this life is just waiting to pass
Like the flowers that fade, like the withering grass
But life seems so long and death so complete
And the grave an impossible potion to cheat
But there’s One who has been there and still lives to tell
There is One who has been through both heaven and hell
And the grave will come up empty-handed the day
Jesus will come and steal us away

(Chorus)
Where is the sting, tell me where is the bite
When the grave robber comes like a thief in the night
Where is the victory, where is the prize
When the grave robber comes
And death finally dies

Many still mourn and many still weep
For those that the love who have fallen asleep
But we have this hope though our hearts may still ache
Just one shout from above and they all will awake
And in the reunion of joy we will see
Death will be swallowed in sweet victory

When the last enemy is done from the dust will come a song
Those asleep will be awakened – not a one will be forsakened
He shall wipe away our tears – He will steal away our fears
There will be no sad tomorrow – there will be no pain and sorrow

Blinded Eyes
Letra e Música: Bob Hartman
Baseado em Mateus 15:14, 1 Coríntios 4:3-6, Efésios 4:18

Don’t know where you’re going but you think you know the way
20-20 vision but you can’t see the light of day
Road is wide or narrow but you can’t tell which is which
Blind will follow blind and you’ll both end up in the ditch
Can’t you see you can’t see? Don’t you know – you don’t know?

(Chorus)
Blinded eyes can’t see the light
When it’s glowing in the night right in front of you
Blinded eyes can’t see the truth
When it’s written on the wall in plain view
Blinded eyes can’t see the Son
Or the work that He has done out of love for you
Blinded eyes

Groping in the darkness searching for the missing switch
Come up empty-handed try to scratch the endless itch
There is only one light that can penetrate your mind
Just one look at Jesus could leave their scales behind
Can’t you see – you could see? Don’t you know – you could know?

Not By Sight
Letra: John Slick
Baseado em 2 Coríntios 6:9, Romanos 5:1-5, Habacuque 2:3-4, Gálatas 5:16-24, Hebreus 6:11-12

Sometimes we’re runnin’ along
Blind to where we’re goin’
Sometimes we lose our bearings
When the storm is blowin’

We know this shadow land is only temporary
These light afflictions work a great eternal glory

(Chorus)
We walk by faith, not by sight
Strengthened by His glorious might
Walk by faith, not by sight
Heading for that land of light
Walk by faith and not by sight

Sometimes we ain’t so sure
He sees us when we’re kneelin’
Sometimes we forget salvation ain’t a feelin’
We know that Jesus died for our justification
We grow in His image by suffering tribulations

Hold fast your confidence
You’ve got an invitation
To meet Him in the air
at His revelation

Lift Him Up
Letra e Música: Bob Hartman
Baseado em João 12:32, 3:14, Lucas 19:2-4

The world is looking for a revelation
We’re always under their investigation
They look at us to hear we got to say
They can’t see Jesus when we stand in the way
They don’t need no more eleveated speeches
We’re keeping Jesus just beyond their reaches
Can’t see the forest for all of the trees
They won’t see Jesus till we fall on our knees

(Chorus)
Lift Him up higher and higher
Lift Him up set the world on fire
It doesn’t take much theology
Just lift Him up so the world can see
Lift Him up tell the gospel story
Lift Him up left them see His glory
It doesn’t take any Bible degree
Just lift Him up so the world can see

Sometimes they just can’t see beyond the haze
Or find their way through the religious maze
Just like Zaccheus they’re trying to see
They got to somehow see beyond you and me

Oh – how the world needs to see him
So they can believe Him
Oh – how can we ever hide Him
As if we had denied Him
Oh – How could He ever draw them
If they never saw Him
Oh – How can they see His glory
Without you and me

Pied Piper
Letra e Música: Bob Hartman
Baseado em 1 Timóteo 6:5, 2 Coríntios 11:13-15, 2 Timóteo 4:3, Romanos 16:17

It’s not so hard to understand what people see in you
You tell them it’s okay to have their cake and eat it too
You traded truth for Godless gain and noone will suspect
You’re such a clever counterfeit of all that you reject

(Chorus)
Pied piper, playin’ the tune they want to hear
Putting a tickle in their ear
Pied piper, wanting them all to follow you
Not know where you lead them too
But all the time you’re leading them astray

The sheep just sit there grinning as they listen to your lies
Never knowing when you pull the wool over their eyes
You’ve got them trained to say “How high?” whenever you say “Jump!”
And those who disagree with you, you always seem to stump

You may not mean to harm a soul you say you’re innocent
But when the final tally comes, you made more than you spent
You knew they’d have to pay the price for listening to you
You knew before too long they’d have to pay the Piper too

Occupy
Letra: John Slick
Baseado em 1 Pedro 5:8-11, Marcos 13:13, Apocalipse 14:12, Isaías 14:24, 1 Coríntios 16:13-14

The enemy surrounds the perimeter
Searching for an op’ning
Sneaking ‘round, tryin’ to gain some ground
He’s laying down a smokescreen
Never full, he prowls about
For someone to devour
Blind with rage, his reign is threatened
By a greater power

(Chorus)
Occupy, occupy
Standing firm, lifting high the holy standard
Occupy, occupy
‘Till out captain marches in

He’ll catch your eye with some cheap disguise
Or innocent distraction
Then he’ll infiltrate the ranks
And split you into factions
He never sleeps, but constantly
Is planning some new angle
A soldier must be diligent
To keep from getting tangled

He shall return with the armies of the Lord
The King of Kings, in vengeance wielding His sword
Gotta draw His power – watching for that hour
We are His people and He’s our great reward

Godpleaser
Letra e Música: Bob Hartman
Baseado em Provérbios 14:12, Efésios 6:6, Gálatas 1:10, 1 Tessalonicenses 4:1, Mateus 6:2, 25:23, Colossenses 3:23

So many voices telling me which way to go
So many choices come from those who think they know
There’s a way that seems right to a man
But it only brings him death
I wanna go the way that leads to life
Till I draw my dying breath

(Chorus)
Don’t wanna be a manpleaser – I wanna be a Godpleaser
I just want to have the wisdom to discern the two apart
Don’t wanna be a manpleaser – I wanna be a Godpleaser
I just want to do the things that please the Father’s heart

Some make a sacrifice and never let it show
Some make a point of letting everybody know
Some will live their lives as unto men
And they have their reward
I just wanna do everything I do
With all my heart unto the Lord

I just want my life to glorify His Son
To make my Father proud that I’m His child before I’m done
No need to pat me on the back or stop the shake my hand
I just want to hear my Father say “Well done, well done”
I just want to hear my Father say “Well done”
