Can You Imagine? A world where wars have ceased all children know is peace this place seems far away so far away This life God dreams for us where all people know God's love A dream fulfilled by all we hope and pray Chorus Can You Imagine? Please God open up our eyes to the suffering that lies in home and in far off lands like Africa Help our hearts to feel the suffering thats real compassion for your children everywhere (bridge) Know that the dream can be fulfilled within our time Know with our help God makes it so www.jefflowerymusic.com

Thomas 02:34
Thomas Verse 1: i am thomas, they call me the twin i followed jesus through thick and thin then they hung him upon a tree now my life is full of misery you should hear what my crazy friends say they say Jesus he came back today but i saw him die upon a tree such a thought is insanity the others invite me to see the place they say jesus will be I guess ill go there just to be a friend then all this nonsense will finally end 8 days later i was up in the room hearing stories of how he walked from the tomb the doors were locked securely next thing you know he's standing next to me he said thomas touch my side see the marks where i was crucified dont be faithless my doubting son let your doubting days be done unlike thomas who could touch the side of jesus the lord crucified blessings shall they receive who cannot see, and still believe www.jefflowerymusic.com

God Loves Us 03:54
God Loves Us I want to help the world, I want to share my friends I want all people to know, I really care My family and friends, coming together, joining our hands We want all people to know, God really cares Making a place for all, accepting each other we try not to fall We know God forgives us, when we do something wrong Going outside to play, Love makes a difference in the words that I say Treating each other with kindness, the way it should be. www.jefflowerymusic.com

Bridgetown Baby From the Sellwood to St John's there are so many bridges lets name them all tonight Morrison, Broadway, Steele, over the Willamette its bridgetown baby yeah St. John's Tillicum Crossing, drive across Portland tonight Ross Island, Hawthorne, Markham, Burnside, Fremont, 5.1 and then there's Sellwood. Bridgetown baby rocking over Portland tonight The oldest bridge in Portland built 1910, Hawthorn is its name replaced the Madison, the Fremont decks will take a driver pretty high if you're driving highway 30 or the 405. Burnside is a source of Rip City pride, there's a VooDoo donuts on either side. The Steel Bridge in downtown is one of a kind A telescoping bridge it will blow your mind Morrison and Broadway are bascule style if you cross them while they're raising you'll be waiting awhile Sellwood is a truss bridge it looks really nice if you knew its safety rating it will make you think twice Here comes the bridge St. John's is a suspension built by Brooklyn men Tillicum's another for pedestrians it takes trains too but Amtrak goes on 5.1 there's a cantilever bridge called Ross Island Markham is the busiest it carries I-5 there's no place like Stumptown to learn how to drive. www.jefflowerymusic.com

David and Goliath Blues My Name is David, I’m just a little kid, you’ll never believe what I did Oooo, oh, you’ll never believe what I did. I’ve got the angry giant blues,(it’s a scandal) From my head down to my sandals. My name is Goliath, I’m just a big kid, you’ll never believe what that boy, did Oooo, oh you’ll never believe what he did, I’ve got the angry giant, little kid with a rock and a slingshot blues, ,(it’s a scandal) From his head down to his sandals. David was a shepherd, with the sheep he’d stay, but his country Israel was having a real bad day, Oh Oh Oh having a real bad day, I’ve got the angry giant, little kid with a rock and a slingshot blues, bad smelling sheep blues ,(it’s a scandal) From my head down to my sandals. Oh those Phillistines, they were so mean, King Saul was so blue, he didn’t know what to do, Oh Oh Oh, he didn’t know what to do, I’ve got the angry giant, little kid with a rock and a slingshot bad smelling sheep, mean philistine, knee knocking blues, ,(it’s a scandal) From my head down to my sandals. David said to King Saul, dressed so fine, no worries your highness, that bad boy is mine, Oh Oh Oh that bad boy is mine. , I’ve got the angry giant, little kid with a rock and a slingshot bad smelling sheep, mean philistine, knee knocking blues, bad boy blues ,(it’s a scandal) From his head down to his sandals. That giant goliath was 9 foot tall, got hit with David’s rock now he needs some Tylenol, oh oh needs some Tylenol. I’ve got the angry giant, little kid with a rock and a slingshot bad smelling sheep, mean philistine, knee knocking blues, bad boy, need some Tylenol blues ,(it’s a scandal) From my head down to my sandals.

Love Your Neighbor. Love your neighbor as yourself Love your neighbor just like anybody else love your neighbor says God's son Yes, you're neighbor's everyone A man walked down a dangerous and dusty road A. Band of thieves took all he had even his clothes. They beat him with sticks and left him there to die He thought he would be rescued when a priest came walking by. The priest rode by and hurried on his way There was important business to be attended to that day He didn't stop to help or see if the man was dead He covered up his eyes and rode right by instead Then a leevite came along he saw the injured man He didn't slow his pace because it wasn't in his plan His temple work was calling, he Just hurried by He didn't help his neighbor, he didn't even try An unexpected man, next came upon this scene He was from Samaria, a long time enemy He could have walked right by and left the man alone Instead . He jumped off his horse and called 911 on the first telephone. ( dad they didn't have telephones in the bible) He took the man to town, to get the help he'd need. Paid for his care, it was like he was family what are we to do when we're faced with our enemies Its Just like Jesus said www.jefflowerymusic.com
