i found the Answer

Verse 1
I was weak and weary, I had gone astray,
walking in the darkness, I couldn't find my way.
Then a light came shining to lead me from despair,
all my sins forgiven, and I was free from care.

Chorus
I found the answer, I learned to pray,
with faith to guide me, I found the way.
The sun is shining for me each day,
I found the answer, I learned to pray.

Verse 2
I was sad and lonely, all my hopes were gone,
days were long and dreary, I couldn't carry on.
Then I found the courage to keep my head up high,
once again I'm happy, and here's the reason why.

Chorus

Verse 3
Keep your Bible with you, read it every day,
always count your blessings and always stop to pray.
Learn to keep believing and faith will see you thro',
seek to know contentment, and it will come to you.

Chorus

I am looking for the words to a song my daddy  to sing. I think the title is "When I can read my title clear" The first stanza was "When I can read my title clear to mansions in the skies, I'll bid farewell to this old world and wipe my weeping eyes". He died at age 81 in 1984.
Thank you and may God bless you.

1. When I can read my title clear
      To mansions in the skies,
      I bid farewell to every fear,
      And wipe my weeping eyes.
      And wipe my weeping eyes,
      And wipe my weeping eyes
      I bid farewell to every fear,
      And wipe my weeping eyes.
   2. Should earth against my soul engage,
      And hellish darts be hurled,
      Then I can smile at Satan’s rage,
      And face a frowning world.
      And face a frowning world,
      And face a frowning world,
      Then I can smile at Satan’s rage,
      And face a frowning world.
   3. Let cares, like a wild deluge come,
      And storms of sorrow fall!
      May I but safely reach my home,
      My God, my heav’n, my All.
      My God, my heav’n, my All,
      My God, my heav’n, my All,
      May I but safely reach my home,
      My God, my heav’n, my All.
   4. There shall I bathe my weary soul
      In seas of heav’nly rest,
      And not a wave of trouble roll
      Across my peaceful breast.
      Across my peaceful breast,
      Across my peaceful breast,
      And not a wave of trouble roll
      Across my peaceful breast.

Here are words to a song requested by a Guest, 10 May, 2010:    I have a book with the music . . . somewhere in the house!

THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM    (1952)
    W & M by Jenny Lou Carson        Key:  Bb     3/4

1.  You hold the keys to the kingdom of God,
Use them now, friend, and when you begin,
Start with the key that will unlock your heart,
Open up and let Jesus come in;
The master key’s next, my dear neighbor,
It’s one you should use ev’ry day,
Prayer is the key to the great pearly gates,
Yes, you’re unlocking them when you pray.

2.  Don’t lose your keys to the kingdom of God,
For you can’t buy your way to the fold,
Loveth thy neighbor, for love is the key,
To that heavenly mansion of gold;
When trumpets ring out in the morning,
And you step where angels have trod,
That’s the great day, you’ll be so glad you used
All the keys to the kingdom of God.

For the guest who posted on 09 Jan 2009 looking for words for Shine On Me.  Is this the Hymn you are searching for:
Shine, Jesus Shine
Lord, the light of your love is shining,
In the midst of the darkness shining.
Jesus, Light of the world shine upon us,
Set us free by the truth you now bring us

Chorus:
Shine on me, Shine on me
Shine, Jesus, Shine
Fill this land with the Father's glory,
Blaze, Spirit blaze,
Set our hearts on fire.

Lord, I come to your awesome presence,
From the shadows Into your radiance,
By the blood I may enter your brightness,
Search me, try me, consume all my darkness.

Chorus:
Shine on me, Shine on me
Flow, river, flow.
Flood the nations with grace and mercy,
Send forth your word, Lord, and let there be light.

As we gaze on Your kingly brightness,
So our faces display your likeness,
Ever changing from glory to glory,
Mirrored here, may our lives tell your story.

CHORUS:
Shine On me, Shine on me.

There's a lighthouse on the hillside that overlooks life's sea,

The Lighthouse

There's a lighthouse on the hillside that overlooks life's sea,
When I'm tossed it sends out a light that I might see.
And the light that shines in darkness now will safely lead us o'er,
If it wasn't for the lighthouse. my ship would be no more.

Chorus

I thank God for the lighthouse, I owe it all to Him,
For Jesus is the lighthouse and from the rocks of sin,
He has shone a light around me that I could clearly see,
If it wasn't for the lighthouse, tell me, where would this ship be?

Everybody that lives about us says, tear that lighthouse down,
The big ships don't sail this way anymore, there's no use of it standing 'round,
Then my mind goes back to that stormy night, when just in time I saw the light,
Yes, the light from that old lighthouse that stands up there on the hill.

iseedelight -

the song is called "Why Should I Care If the Sun Doesn't Shine"

Why should I care if the sun doesn't shine? Jesus is mine, all of the time;

Why should I care if the storm clouds are low? Jesus is with me, I know!

He will never forsake me. I'm under his wing. Though trials overtake me,

I will praise Him and sing, "I am ever so happy"

So why should I care if the sun doesn't shine?

Jesus is mine all the time!

To a Guest:
"I Can Go to the Master" by Karen Wheaton

Verse 1:
When there's no place to go,
You think no one knows
What you're going through.

When you've done all you can,
You're exhausted, my friend.
There's nothing left you can do
When life overwhelms you or someone betrays you.

There's still one place I know
When there's nowhere to go.
I can go to the Master in prayer.

Chorus:
I can go to the Master!
He always listens.
He welcomes my please because He cares about me,
He won't overlook my petition.

He's standing above,
and He's watching in love.
He's waiting my burden to bear.

He's got time for you,
and a place for me, too.
I can go to the Master in prayer.

(Repeat Chorus twice)


Hope this was what you were looking for!

I'm looking for an old Gospel Song, I remember a man and woman lead the choir. Here are some of the lyrics: I don't know just what I'd do, if the Lord wasn't on my side. I just don't know where I would be, if the Lord hadn't watched over me.
