“Better Than That” by Phil Tarver

Better Than That (LYRICS)
What can I say, about Your mercy
What can I say, about Your grace
All that I know, is that You’ve been faithful
All that I know, is I love to call Your name

If I say You’re good You’ve been. . . better than that
If I say You’re great You’ve been. . . greater than that
If I say You’re sweet You’ve been. . . sweeter than that
You’ve been. . . more and more in my life.

If I say You’re rich You’ve been. . . richer than that
If I say You’re strong You’ve been. . . stronger than that
If I say You’re holy You’re. . . more than that
You’ve been, more and more in my life.

HELP
By: Erica Campbell

[Chorus:]
Help
Help
Lord I need your help

[VERSE 1:]
I been in the fire so long
I can’t get burned no mo’
I thought you was puttin’ out the flame
But it was rain from the storm
Thoughts all in my head
Makin’ me stressed
All day long
They won’t let me rest
“S” on my chest
I ain’t that strong

[Hook:]
I need a life line right now
911 won’t do
My back’s against the wall now
Done all that I can do
I prayed every prayer
Went to every service
Like I know how
Just a ship without a sail
I’m lost without your help

[Chorus:]
Help
Help
Lord I need your help
{Repeat}

[VERSE 2:]
Said I do but to tell the truth
Sometimes I don’t
But it ain’t about my will
It’s all about what you want
Family used to be first
Things getting worse
In my home
My brother is hurt
We need a word
It’s too far gone

[Hook:]
I need a life line right now
911 won’t do
My back’s against the wall now
Done all that I could do
I prayed every prayer
Went to every service
Like I know how
Just a ship without a sail
I’m lost without your help

[Chorus:]
Lord it’s me this time
Said I’m cryin’ all day
I just can’t make it if I don’t have your (help)
Whoa said I really need

[Bridge:]
Dear Lord I need a little help now see
I feel left out
I can’t tell my right from my left now
My mama’s cryin’ ’cause my daddy’s dyin’
He got pains all in his chest now
My daughter’s having these nightmares
I might be wrong but I’m right here
I’m tryin’ a hold on but my hands hurt
Or the ropes out ’cause when life fights it don’t fight fair
So I’m leaning all on these ropes now
I got hope but it’s slow now
So I’m leaning all on these quotes now
Like never leave me
Won’t forsake me
If you don’t help me
I won’t make it

[LEAD:]
Said you’d never leave me
So come on Jesus
Lord yeah
Lord yeah
Does anybody need the Lord?
I can’t make it without you Lord, oh,
Somebody laying in the hospital right now
Need you to make it alright
God I just lost my daddy,
I need
Yes I need
Oh, yes I need
Yeah, yeah, yeah

LYRICS:
PRAISE IN THE TEMPLE (IT’S SERVICE TIME)

[Chorus:]
When there’s a praise in the temple*
And a praise in the house
You can usher in the Spirit and remove the devil out
God will open up the window and
The blessing He’ll pour out
When there’s a praise in the temple
And a praise in the house
[Repeat:]

[Bridge:]
It’s service time [echo] It’s service time [echo]
Enter into the gate with thanksgiving and praise on your mind
It’s service time [echo] It’s service time [echo]
Get up out of that seat
Stand up of your feet
Let’s clap to the beat
ITS SERVICE TIME!
[Repeat:]

[Lead:]
You won’t leave like you came in Jesus name
There’s a blessing in this house you can claim
All you have to do is speak it It’s in your name
You won’t leave like you came in Jesus name
[Repeat:]

[Repeat Bridge:]
[Repeat Chorus:]

[Vamp:]
When there’s a praise in the temple
[Repeat: (7x)]

[Ending:]
And a praise in the house!
