The Spirit Lives (Walk in the light) – Song Lyrics

The Spirit Lives (Walk in the Light)

1. The Spirit lives to set us free,
walk, walk in the light;
He binds us all in unity,
walk, walk in the light.

Chorus: Walk in the light, walk in the light
             Walk in the light, walk in the light of the Lord!

2. Jesus promised life to all,
walk, walk in the light;
the dead were wakened by His call,
walk, walk in the light.
   Walk in the light…

3. He died in pain on Calvary ,
walk, walk in the light;
to save the lost like you and me,
walk, walk in the light.
   Walk in the light…

4. We know His death was not the end,
walk, walk in the light;
He gave His Spirit to be our friend,
walk, walk in the light.
   Walk in the light…

5. By Jesus’ love our wounds are healed,
walk, walk in the light;
the Father’s kindness is revealed,
walk, walk in the light.
   Walk in the light…

6. The Spirit lives in you and me,
walk, walk in the light;
His light will shine for all to see,
walk, walk in the light.
   Walk in the light…

Amazing Grace (Traditional) – Song Lyrics

Amazing Grace

1. Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

2. ’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

3. Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

4. The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures;
He will my Shield and Portion be,
As long as life endures.

5. Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

6. The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.

*7. When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.

(Omit * verse)

Black and White / The Ink is Black, The Page is White – Song Lyrics

Black and White

1. The ink is black, the page is white
Together we learn to read and write
Read and write
And now a child can understand
This is the law in all the land
All the land
The ink is black, the page is white
Together we learn to read and write
Read and write

2. The slate is black, the chalk is white
The words stand out so clear and bright
Clear and bright
And now at last we plainly see
The alphabet of liberty
Liberty
The slate is black, the chalk is white
The words stand out so clear and bright
Clear and bright

3. A child is black, a child is white
The whole world looks upon the sight
A beautiful sight
And very well the whole world knows
This is the way that freedom grows
Freedom grows
A child is black, a child is white
The whole world looks upon the sight
A beautiful sight

4. The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day and it turns by night
It turns by night
It turns so each and everyone
Can take his station in the sun
In the sun
The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day and it turns by night
It turns by night

Original Words

Their robes were black, their heads were white
The schoolhouse doors were closed so tight
Were closed up tight
Nine judges all set down their names
To end the years and years of shame
Years of shame
The robes were white, the heads were white
