Karen Clark Sheard Go Ahead

[Verse 1:]

Stop thinking the worst,

Be more of a winner,

If you wanna set your mind to it,

Then believe God for it.

Stop thinking you lost,

When the game ain’t even started

You’ll never get it if you can’t see it,

Before you ever receive it

(Now dance if you believe it),

(let’s dance before you get it),

Go-getters will reap and sow it better,

Don’t talk but be about it.

[Chorus:]

Go ahead, go ahead, go ahead,

Don’t think about it.

Go ahead, go ahead, go ahead,

Don’t worry ’bout a thing.

Go ahead, go ahead, go ahead

Have faith in Him.

Go ahead, go ahead, go ahead,

Go get what’s yours.

[Verse 2:]

Stop thinking you can’t,

Be more of a soldier,

Believe you’re more than conquerors

In Him that loved us.

Stop looking to man,

He’s limited in understanding,

He might have the same problems

And he may need the same answers.

(Now dance if you believe it),

(let’s dance before you get it),

Go-getters will reap and sow it better,

Don’t talk but be about it.

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]

You’ve been thinkin’ ’bout some extra dollars,

All you gotta do is scream and holler like you got it;

(its on its way, go on and get your dance on).

You’ve been thinkin’ ’bout some peace and favor,

All you gotta do is keep the faith and you’ll get it,

(yeah, yeah, keep the faith).

[Rap:]

Hold up, stop, now wait a minute,

Ain’t no stoppin’ ’til Missy finish.

Turn my mike up so the whole church can hear it,

Ain’t no talkin’ ’bout it, we ’bout to be about it.

Let’s work it, we gon’ work it,

We gon’ praise dance all up in the churches.

Now we gon’ rock the service,

All night ’til the pastor do a sermon.

Now hop, slide,

Step to the right, you try it.

Now hop, slide,

Praise Him all night, we ain’t tired.

[Chorus]

Karen Clark Sheard Sacrifice

After this true story

He sent more blessings

There were miracles that people never had

There was love beyond compare

That’s how He showed He cared

He proved it with His eyes, He cried for me

He proved it with His knees, He prayed for me

So I present my body

A living sacrifice

So I give you my heart and I give you my mind

I owe you me

Thank you for setting me free

[Karen:]

I shall never forget this Man named Jesus

Cause He died for you and me at Calvary

He paid the price and made a sacrifice

That’s why I owe Him me

So I’ll take this time to show appreciation to our Lord

For saving me a wretch undone

So I offer up a sacrificial praise

Oh because the lost He thought enough to save

[Karen & Kierra:]

He proved it with His eyes, He cried for me

He proved it with His knees, He prayed for me

So I present my body

A living sacrifice

So I give Him my heart

So I give Him my soul

I give you my heart my mind

I give you my soul

I owe you me

Thank you for setting me free

Karen Clark Sheard I’ve Been Changed

Any other day

I wouldn’t have dealt with this situation this way

There were a lot of things I wanted to say

But when I thought about what would have happened

If I let you get the best of me

No way

Now I can truly say

[Chorus:]

I was a bird on the ground

Using my legs to get around

I was a piano out of tune

But I’ve been turned around

Tell you how I know

Places I used to go

I don’t even go no more

Cause I can fly now

And the song I play lets me know

I’ve been changed

Never mind what you heard

I’m not the same somewhere, somehow, some way

I reversed the way I do things

I know it ain’t worth all the

Tug of war with you

To prove I’m stronger

I no longer

Stay to play and lose

Now I’m proud to say it’s true

[Chorus]

[Bridge]

Make no mistake about it

Anyone could change

But it takes a strong mind to say

That doing the right thing is ok

And now that I’ve decided

To give up these ways

There’s no turning back now

Now that I found out

I can overcome all these things

[Chorus x2]

Karen Clark Sheard Only Call On Jesus

[Chorus:]

I only call on Jesus

He carries me through my worst storm

I only count on Jesus

I’m leaning on His everlasting arm

I have a testimony bout Jesus

He carries me through my worst storm

I only count on Jesus

I’m leaning on His everlasting arm

Let me tell you that I’m leaning

And I’m trusting him

I’ll sit and I’ll wait

The Lord he’s right there for me

Never too late

Boy when it feels like I’m level

Level to the ground

He lifts me right up all my blessings come down

That’s why I call him

[Chorus]

Yes he’s a way maker when I’m sick I can fall

On my knees and I’ll pray

The Lord turned my midnights

To a brighter day

Oh it’s a blessed assurance

In You when I call

Wonderful counselor

My all and all

[Chorus]

All right

Somebody may be going through something out there

You see in order for you to have a testimony

You gotta go through some tests and some trials

To make you strong

[Chorus]

Karen Clark Sheard A Secret Place

This world sometimes seems cruel and cold

And pain doth pierce my very soul

But there’s a place, a secret place

A place where I can go, ohh

A place of peace, where love abides

Where justice reigns and God resides

There is a place, a secret place

A place where I can go

For You shall hide me in Your tabernacle

From the rain and storm

And even when my enemies pursue me

You’ll keep me safe from harm

And when my heart is filled with pain

No peace it seems I’ll find again

I find that place a secret place

A place where I can go

For You shall hide me in Your tabernacle

From the rain and storm

And even when my enemies pursue me

You’ll keep me safe from harm

There is safety, in Your tabernacle

There is protection, in Your tabernacle

There is security, in Your tabernacle

There is sanctuary, in Your tabernacle

Lord take me, to Your tabernacle

I wanna go, to Your tabernacle

Lord take me, to Your tabernacle

Lord there You’ll reign, hide me safely in Your dwelling place

There is a place a secret place

A place where I can go, ooh a secret place

A dwelling place, I wanna go, I wanna go

Karen Clark Sheard Be Sure

If you ask me why it really took so long

It was like waiting for that picture perfect song

If you ask me why it took so many years

It’s never easy coping with your fears

If you ask me how I felt being alone

Where I was weak God made me strong

If you ask me if I really feel secure

Before I say yes – I must to be sure

[B-Sec:]

Sunny days don’t mean that it ever won’t rain

Money may bring things but it won’t erase the pain

[Chorus:]

I love you and you love me but we must be sure

We may be the best of friends but in the end it’s true love that wins

Gotta be love that will endure

I gotta to be absolutely sure

If you ask me what precedes a wedding day

It’s the answers you receive when you pray

And if you find for any reason it’s not pure

Before you say yes you must be sure

[B-Sec]

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]

Could it be infatuation or is it true

Losing a battle with temptation will never do

Though I’m not perfect my objective is to be pure

So please forgive me for the wait I had to be sure

Please understand

[Chorus]

If I’m gonna to put my trust in you

Gotta be absolutely true

If I’m gonna share my life with you

Gotta be absolutely sure

Gotta be a love that will endure

Gotta be absolutely sure
