Bob Carlisle Man Of His Word

In the final days of summer, 1944,

with just a preacher and a witness and a humble band of gold,

They set out to find the future, not a penny to their name.

Still with all the unknown danger, she knew her heart was safe,

cause..

He was a rock

He was the one that she ran to

And when he said the words “Forever”

She knew that it was true

He wasn’t a saint

But he was saint enough for her

He was a man,

A man of his word.

In the final days of summer, 1964,

found a family undivided, divided on the war.

Turning son against his elder, debating wrong and right,

He was the image of his father, though they would not see eye to eye,

still…

He was a rock

He was the one the boy ran to

Cause’ when he said the word “I Love You”

He knew that it was true

And even in the worst of storms

There was an anchor in his world

He was a man,

A man of his word.

Clutching a strong belief in the bible,

through all the sweetness in his life, and the bitterness of war,

He knew what God had made him for…

In the final days of summer, 1994,

surrounded by his family and the presence of the Lord.

He set out to find his future, the one he’d always known,

He didn’t want to leave his family, but he knew deep in his soul,

The lord had called him home…

cause…

He was the rock

He was the one the man ran to

And when he said the words “forever”

He knew that it was true

He wasn’t a saint

he is the one the saints bow to

Receiving a man,

A man of his word…

He was the one that I ran to

Cause when he says the word “forever”

I know his word is true

He isn’t a saint

He is the one the saints bow to

Come to the man

The man of his word.

Bob Carlisle Slumber Song

Slumber softly goodnight

Ne thy cover so white,

Lullaby , Lullaby, soon the day will be born,

Lullaby, Lullaby, though shalt wake with the dawn.

Slumber softly goodnight,

In thy raiment of white,

by angels caressed,

closed thine eyes in sweet rest,

Lullaby, Lullaby, soon the day will be born,

Lullaby, Lullaby, though shalt wake with the dawn.

Bob Carlisle On My Way To Paradise

My soul’s in motion, movin’ on this righteous thing

You’re doin’ in me, here in me

My sole devotion ’bout to makin’ me wanna sing

In harmony, harmony

Singing bout’ the joy I’ve found walkin’ on holy ground

Don’t you know, there’s absolutely no room for doubt

That’s where I wanna go

Oh me, oh my

I’m on my way to paradise

So sweet, so nice

Good Lord, I’m ready

Ready for anything, anything at all

I’m movin’ steady, I’m walkin’ on the narrow road

That’s gonna lead me home, right on home

I can almost hear the Angels calling my name

I’m gonna see Him face to face, eye to eye

And that’s where I wanna go

Bob Carlisle Mozart’s Lullaby

Sleep, little one, go to sleep,

So peaceful birds and the sheep,

Quiet are meadow and trees,

Even the buzz of the bees.

The silvery moon beams so bright,

down through the window give light.

O’er you the moon beams will creep,

sleep little one go to sleep.

good night, good night.

Bob Carlisle Forgiveness

I say I will, but then I won’t

Say I do, but then I don’t

It happens every day

I hate the sinner, love the sin

It’s a sorry state I’m in

I’ve got to get away

Every time I throw that stone

The fate I’m sealing is my own

You know how much I need

Forgiveness, forgiveness

I can’t live without

Forgiveness, forgiveness

That’s what love’s about

Forgiveness

I say forgive and then forget

But I ain’t learned to do it yet

You’d think I’d know by now

I know how to hurt someone

Been on both sides of that gun

Pulled the trigger anyhow

When I’m hurting someone else

I only hurt myself

I’ve got to let it go

Forgiveness, forgiveness

I can’t live without

Forgiveness, forgiveness

That’s what love’s about

Forgiveness

A thousand wrongs don’t make a right

Just nobody wins

When the bridges start burning

Can’t you hear my cry?

Forgiveness, forgiveness

I can’t live without

Forgiveness, forgiveness

That’s what love’s about

Forgiveness, forgiveness

I can’t live without

Forgiveness, forgiveness

That’s what love’s about

Forgiveness, forgiveness

Forgiveness, forgiveness

Bob Carlisle It Is Well With My Soul

Oh, my life is filled with white-hot anxiety,

Though I think I wear it very well,

I still worry bout’ what people might think of me

if they ever saw me past my outer shell.

Believe me, I know how to worry.

I’ve chewed my fingernails to the bone.

Oh, I’ve got my share of problems

Still it is well with my soul

Sometimes I wrestle with my conscience

Still it is well with my soul

Lord, I think about all that you’ve done for me.

Lord, I think about it all the time.

But sometimes a ghost from the past starts

really haunting me,

sticking those awful feelings in my mind.

I won’t let it get to me, no.

I ain’t walking down that old, dark road.

Oh, I’ve got my share of problems

Still it is well with my soul

Don’t always know just how to solve them

Still it is well with my soul

Since I’ve been given true forgiveness

And it is well with my soul

I’ll be about my father’s business

And it is well with my soul

In my soul

I can see clearly

In my soul

Through the darkness surrounding me

Once you’ve tasted and seen

Then you’ll know what I mean

There ain’t nothing gonna keep me down,

so…get up…

Oh, I’ve got my share of problems

Still it is well with my soul

Don’t always know just how to solve them

Still it is well with my soul

Sometimes I wrestle with my conscience

Still it is well with my soul

Still I know that I’ve got true forgiveness

And it is well with my soul

Bob Carlisle Can’t Stop The River

The downpour’s coming; it’s on the rise,

Where the river runs above the cold, dark sand,

The rain is falling on the desert tonight,

There’s a voice in the river, and the faithful understand,

I just can’t believe my eyes tonight; what an awesome sight,

But I know that everything’s gonna be alright.

Because you…you can’t stop the river,

You can’t hold back the rain,

Can’t stop the power,

You won’t feel any pain,

And when the water rushes over you, you start your life again,

You can’t stop the river, oh.

The sky is turning; the dreamers awake,

I hear the angel voices rising with the flood,

My heart is pounding with the thunder above,

The clouds begin to cry as the river turn to blood,

I just can’t believe my eyes tonight; what a beautiful sight,

But I know that everything’s gonna be alright.

Because you…you can’t stop the river,

You can’t hold back the rain,

Can’t stop the power,

You won’t feel any pain,

And when the water rushes over you, you start your life again,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river.

I just can’t believe my eyes tonight; what a beautiful sight,

Now I know that everything’s gonna be alright.

Can’t stop the river,

You can’t hold back the rain, no, no, no,

Can’t stop the power,

You won’t feel any pain,

And when the water rushes over you, you start your life again,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop it.

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river,

Can’t stop it,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river, whoa.

Bob Carlisle I Will Shelter You

I’m in your corner

Don’t worry ’bout a thing

And if you should ever need

Some comforting

I’m as close as the air you breathe

I’ll be the faith you need to believe

Put your head on my shoulder

And rest a little while

‘Cause I’m here to hold you

When your world turns wild

That’s just what love should do

When times are tough

I will pull you through

When the hurricane blows

Against your heart

And the sky’s on fire

And you don’t know where you are

When you’ve done all you can do

And there’s no one else to turn to

I will shelter you

It doesn’t matter

What tomorrow brings

‘Cause baby together

We can weather anything

When you can’t seem to

Find your way

I will push back the storm

I will stop the rain

No matter where you are

I will guide your heart

Bob Carlisle Butterfly Kisses

There’s two things I know for sure:

She was sent here from heaven and she’s daddy’s little girl.

As I drop to my knees by her bed at night

She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes

and I thank god for all of the joy in my life

Oh, but most of all

For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;

sticking little white flowers all up in her hair;

“Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it’s my first ride.”

“I know the cake looks funny, Daddy, but I sure tried.”

Oh, with all that I’ve done wrong, I must have done something right

To deserve a hug every morning And butterfly kisses at night.

Sweet 16 today

She’s looking like her mama a little more everyday

One part woman, the other part girl.

To perfume and make-up from ribbons and curls

Trying her wings out in a great big world.

But I remember…..

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;

sticking little white flowers all up in her hair.

“You know how much I love you, Daddy,

But if you don’t mind I’m only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time.”

Oh with all that I’ve done wrong I must have done something right

to deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses at night.

All the precious time

Like the wind, the years go by.

Precious butterfly.

Spread your wings and fly.

She’ll change her name today.

She’ll make a promise and I’ll give her away.

Standing in the bride-room just staring at her.

She asked me what I’m thinking and I said

“I’m not sure-I just feel like I’m losing my baby girl.”

She leaned over

Gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there,

Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair

“Walk me down the aisle, Daddy-it’s just about time.”

“Does my wedding gown look pretty, Daddy? Daddy, don’t cry”

Oh, with all that I’ve done wrong I must have done something right.

To deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses

I couldn’t ask God for more, man this is what love is.

I know I gotta let her go, but I’ll always remember

Every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses…
