I AM THERE

LYRICS

Inspirational

My mother Mary passed away 6 years ago and my Father on Nov 22, 2009.  Now mom was an angel on earth and loved the Lord with all her heart. She always wanted her children to do an inspirational Christian CD together and Daddy was so in love with her he wrote her poems and notes her whole life...So in their honor we have compiled a CD of songs written by myself, my brother James Lee and a few other wonderful writers. The Cd features vocals from me, my two sisters Sandra and Robin, my niece Kristina and my brother James Lee....It has songs about Love,God, Jesus and our mother....We hope you enjoy

Make Your Choice
Pamala Stanley
(Pamala Stanley on lead vocal)

MANY TIMES IN MY LIFE WHEN I FELT MY WORLD COME CRASHING DOWN OR TIMES WHEN I WASN'T SURE WHICH WAY TO GO,  I WOULD GET ON MY KNEES AND ASK FOR GUIDANCE AND EVERY TIME SOMETHING BETTER CAME ALONG AND I REALIZED THAT WOW THIS IS EVEN BETTER THAN I COULD HAVE IMAGINED. I DECIDED I WAS GOING TO LIVE IN FAITH AND TRUST. I GOT THAT LIFE IS A CHOICE AND THAT HAVING GOD IN MY LIFE WAS THE BEST CHOICE I EVER MADE. SO ONE DAY I WAS TAKING A WALK AND THANKING GOD FOR WHAT I HAD AND THIS SONG JUST CAME TO ME.

YOU CAN BELIEVE WHAT YOU LIKE      
YOU CAN RECEIVE WHAT YOU LIKE
BUT JESUS HE’S GONNA GET YOU THROUGH
YOU CAN LOOK TO SOMEBODY ELSE     
YOU CAN PUT YOUR SOUL ON THE SHELF

BUT JESUS HE’S GONNA GET YOU THROUGH
YOU GOTTA MAKE YOUR CHOICE        
YOU GOTTA MAKE YOUR CHOICE
PEOPLE WILL SAY IT’S NOT REAL   
LIVE YOUR LIFE  JUST DO JUST WHAT YOU FEEL

BUT JESUS ….HE’S GONNA GET YOU THROUGH
AND WHEN YOUR LIFE IS FALLING APART     

JUST STOP TAKE A LOOK IN YOUR HEART
BUT JESUS ....HE'S GONNA GET YOU THROUGH 
YOU GOTTA MAKE YOUR CHOICE..        
YOU GOTTA MAKE YOUR CHOICE

YOU CAN HEAR HIM ON THE INSIDE
HE’LL EASE YOUR HEART,  YOUR SOUL,  YOUR MIND
HE’LL LIFT YOU UP AND YOU WILL FIND…. TRUE LOVE

OH YOU CAN BELIEVE WHAT YOU LIKE      
YOU CAN RECEIVE WHAT YOU LIKE
BUT JESUS HE’S GONNA GET YOU THROUGH 
YOU GOTTA MAKE YOUR CHOICE..        
YOU GOTTA MAKE YOUR CHOICE



Since I Found You
Pamala Stanley
(Robin Rogers on lead vocal)

I WAKE UP EACH MORNIN AND FEEL YOU CLOSE TO ME
I LINGER IN SILENCE SO THANKFULLY
YOU FILL UP MY LIFE YOU FILL UP MY SOUL
CAN THIS BE REAL YOU’RE REALLY WITH ME EVEN TO ETERNITY   

SINCE I FOUND YOU YOU’VE OPENED UP HEAVEN’S DOOR
SINCE I FOUND YOU I’M LEARNING WHAT LIFE IS REALLY FOR
AND I LOVE YOU MUCH MORE THAN WORDS CAN SAY
AND I NEED YOU TO LIGHT MY WAY

YOU’RE THE WARMTH OF THE SUMMER     THE MIST OF THE RAIN
YOU’RE THE CHANGING OF WINTER INTO SPRINGTIME AGAIN
WITH YOU IN MY HEART I CAN CONQUER THE WORLD
JUST LIKE A SHIP LOST IN THE SEA        YOU’RE THE LIGHT THAT’S GUIDING ME

SINCE I FOUND YOU YOU’VE OPENED UP HEAVEN’S DOOR
SINCE I FOUND YOU I’M LEARNING WHAT LIFE IS REALLY FOR
AND I LOVE YOU MUCH MORE THAN WORDS CAN SAY
AND I NEED YOU TO LIGHT MY WAY
JUST LIKE A SHIP LOST IN THE SEA        YOU’RE THE LIGHT THAT’S GUIDING ME  

SINCE I FOUND YOU YOU’VE OPENED UP HEAVEN’S DOOR
SINCE I FOUND YOU I’M LEARNING WHAT LIFE IS REALLY FOR
AND I LOVE YOU MUCH MORE THAN WORDS CAN SAY
AND I NEED YOU TO LIGHT MY WAY


Has Anyone Told You
Pamala Stanley
(Kristina Kross on Lead Vocal)

I went to Ephesus on a cruise and stood on the steps where Peter had preached. I was just thinking what it must have been like to actually be there when Jesus walked the earth. I just stayed in the day dream for a long while and this song came to me...Then I realized he is still with me and what a great feeling it is. Every time I turn around something wonderful is happening.

HAS ANYONE TOLD YOU HOW SWEET IT WOULD BE
TO GO BACK IN TIME AND SPEND A DAY IN THE LIFE OF HIM
WOULD’T IT BE NICE
HE’D CLEAR OUR CONFUSION AND HEAL OUR PAIN
HE’D TEACH US TO LIVE YES HE’D TEACH US HOW TO LOVE ONCE AGAIN
WOUDN’T IT BE NICE

WALKING BESIDE HIM      
LISTENING TO HIS WORDS
LOOKING INTO HIS EYES HEARING THE TRUTH UNFURLED

HAS AN
YONE TOLD YOU HE’S LIVING TODAY JUST ASK HIM…INVITE HIM…
TO LIVE IN YOUR HEART TODAY
WOULDN’T IT BE NICE
HE’LL FILL UP YOUR SPIRIT WITH ALL YOU CAN HOLD
HE’LL SHOW YOU NEW LIFE      A PATH FOR YOUR SOUL TO UNFOLD
WOULDN’T IT BE NICE

LEARNING TO TRUST HIM LEAVING THE PAST BEHIND YOU’LL OPEN THE GATEWAY
OF HEAVEN AND YOU WILL FIND

THAT LIFE HAS MORE MEANING THAN JUST WHAT YOU SEE
TAKE A LOOK ON THE INSIDE HE IS THERE FOR YOU AND ME WOULDN’T IT BE NICE


Alabaster Box
Janice Sjostran
(Sandra Young on lead vocal)

The room grew still as she made her way to Jesus
She stumbles through the tears that made her blind
She felt such pain Some spoke in anger
Heard them whisper "There's no place here for her kind"
Still on she came through the shame that flushed her face
til at last she knelt before his feet
And though she spoke no words, everything she said was heard
As she poured her love for the master from her box of alabaster

I've come to pour my praise on Him like oil From Mary's alabaster box
Don't be angry if I wash his feet with my tears and I dry them with my hair
You weren't there the night he found me
Did not feel what I felt when he wrapped his love all around me
And you don't know the cost of the oil in my alabaster box

I can't forget the way life used to be I was a prisoner to the sins that had me bound
I spent my days,  poured my life without measure
Into a little treasure box I thought I found
Until the day when Jesus came to me
Healed my soul with the wonder of his touch
So now Im giving back to him all the praise he's worthy of
I've been forgiven and that's why I love him so much
I 've come to pour my praise on him like oil From Mary's alabaster box

Don't be angry if I wash his feet with my tears
And I dry them with my hair.......my hair
You weren't there the night Jesus found me
You did not feel what I felt when he wrapped his loving arms around me
And you don't know the cost of the oil
oohhhhhhhhhhhh You don't know the cost of my praise
You don't know the cost of the oil in my alabaster box

Give My Life
Pamala Stanley
(Pamala Stanley on lead vocal)

I met a woman in a grocery store and she witnessed to me right there by the lettuce...I thought "Man she is crazy" I started thinking I could never be that bold..I was always a Closet Christian for sure. How does someone just speak out like that?...so ofcourse I wrote a song about it.

I BOW DOWN BEFORE YOU LORD   I LIFT UP MY EYES TO THEE
ETERNAL LIFE YOU GAVE TO THE EARTH    BY HUMBLY DYING ON CALVARAY

LORD I TAKE A STAND TO STAND WITH YOU THROUGH THICK AND THIN
I GIVE MY LIFE TO YOU LORD CAUSE YOU GAVE YOUR LIFE FOR ME

WHENEVER YOU NEED MY VOICE TO TELL THE LONELY THAT YOU ARE THERE
W
HENEVE R YOU NEED MY HANDS TO TOUCH THE LONELY AND SHOW YOU CARE

LORD I TAKE A STAND TO STAND WITH YOU THROUGH THICK AND THIN
I GIVE MY LIFE TO YOU LORD CAUSE YOU GAVE YOUR LIFE FOR ME

PEOPLE MAY SAY I’M HALF CRAZY
PEOPLE MAY SAY I’VE GOT MY HEAD IN THE SAND
YOU NEVER WORRIED WHAT PEOPLE MIGHT SAY
YOU KEPT WORSHIPPING THE FATHER SO PROUD

(INSTRUMENTAL)

LORD I TAKE A STAND TO STAND WITH YOU THROUGH THICK AND THIN
I GIVE MY LIFE TO YOU LORD
CAUSE YOU GAVE YOUR LIFE FOR ME


Knock
Pamala Stanley
(Robin Rogers on lead vocal)

ADD TRUST AND WHAT DO YOU KNOW
BOUQUETS BEGIN TO GROW
 

KNOCK AND THE DOOR WILL BE OPEN
ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE
SEEK AND I KNOW YOU WILL FIND HIM
YOU CAN BELIEVE

A WARM SMILE AN OPEN HEART    
IS LIKE RAIN TO AN ENDLESS DROUGHT
THERE’S NEED ACROSS THE LAND 
REACH OUT A HELPING HAND

KNOCK AND THE DOOR WILL BE OPEN
ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE
SEEK AND I KNOW YOU WILL FIND HIM
YOU CAN BELIEVE

GIVE THE WORLD NEW MEANING OF JOY
DON’T TREAT MAN LIKE A BROKEN TOY
IN BODY SPIRIT NOW WE’RE ONE IN SAME
SO LIFT YOUR VOICES PRAISE THE NAME OF THE LORD

KNOCK AND THE DOOR WILL BE OPEN
ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE
SEEK AND I KNOW YOU WILL FIND HIM
YOU CAN BELIEVE


All I Ever Wanted
James Lee Stanley and James House
(Pamala Stanley on lead vocal)

My Brother wrote this song for me. I had just become a Christian in my late 20's and he wrote this as a love song to God from me....But it can also be about any love...that is why I loved it, it's universal.


So Many Years
Pamala Stanley and Clyde James
(Pamala Stanley on lead vocal)

MY FATHER SITS QUIET AND STILL
A SMILE GENTLY CROSSING HIS FACE
A FAR AWAY LOOK COMES INTO HIS EYES
AS HE GAZES SURENELY INTO SPACE
THEN HE TURNS AND LOOKS ACROSS THE ROOM
TO THE ONE WHO SHARED HIS FATE
SUCH A LADY HE’S ALWAYS LOVED
AND ASKED TO BE HIS MATE

SO MANY YEARS OF LOVING HER
HAS LEFT IT’S MARK ON HIS LIFE
AND HE THANKS HER NOW AND FOR ALL TIME
FOR BECOMING HIS WIFE
THEN HE THINKS BACK TO THE DAYS
WHEN NEITHER KNEW WHAT LIFE HAD IN STORE

SO YOUNG AND LOVELY SHE ANSWERE HIS KNOCK
AS SHE GAME GENTLY OPENED THE DOOR
THE LOOK IN HER EYES BURNED DEEP IN HIS SOUL
HE KNEW HE HAD NO CHANCE FROM THE START
SUCH A SMILE SHE HAD ON HER FAC
CAPTURED FOREVER HIS HEART

SO MANY YEARS OF LOVING HER
HAS LEFT IT’S MARK ON HIS LIFE
AND HE THANKS HER NOW AND FOR ALL TIME
FOR BECOMING HIS WIFE


Wash Away
James Lee Stanley
(James Lee Stanley on lead vocal)


On The Inside
(Sandra Young on lead vocal)

I DID THIS SONG AS A DEMO IN LA IN THE LATE 70'S. I FOUND IT ON AN OLD CASSETTE TAPE WITH NO WRITING ON IT. I CAN'T REMEMBER THE NAMES OF THE 2 WRITERS. I SEARCHED ON LINE AND CAN'T FIND ANYTHING ON THIS SONG.. IF YOU KNOW THE WRITERS PLEASE GIVE THEM MY INFO AND TELL THEM TO CALL ME.


At Every Turn (The Gladiator Song)
Kerry Livgren
(Robin Rogers on lead vocal)

ROBIN AND HER HUSBAND DAVIS ARE THE MUSIC HISTORIANS OF THE FAMILY. THEY KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT THE MUSICIANS IN ALL THE GROUPS..THEY ARE INCREDIBLE..ME I FORGET ANYTHING ABOUT THE SONG EXCEPT THE LYRICS AND THAT IS DEBATABLE AT TIMES. ANYWAY SHE BROUGHT THIS SONG AND INSISTED WE DO IT. I HAD NEVER HEARD IT BEFORE. AT FIRST I THOUGHT WHAT? BUT I TELL YOU IT BECAME ONE OF MY FAVORITE. WE CALL IT THE GLADIATOR SONG. IT MAKES YOU WANT TO GET OUT THERE AND CONQUER. PLUS I LOVE THE 3 DIFFERENT VOCALS AND LYRICS GOING AT THE SAME TIME.


We Survive
Nick Granato
(Pamala Stanley on lead vocal)

NICK WROTE THIS FROM THE HEART.. I THINK HE IS AN AMAZING LYRICIST AND WRITER. WHEN I HEARD IT I SAID NICK...I HAVE TO RECORD THIS SONG. IT IS AN ANTHEM. AND IT IS..  I LOVE THIS SONG, IT REACHES SO MANY PEOPLE. EVERYTIME I PERFORM THIS SONG LIVE, I HAVE PEOPLE COME UP TO ME WITH TEARS IN THEIR EYES AND SAY THAT IT SPOKE TO THEM AND GAVE THEM STRENGTH.

IT’S NOT EASY BUT WE DO IT EVERYDAY
THERE’S NO TELLING WHAT WE LOSE ALONG THE WAY
THE ROAD TO BROKEN SOULS AND PIECES OF DREAMS
THE CHILDHOOD WISHES THAT WON’T BE REDEEMED

 WE PAY WAY TO MUCH FOR A LITTLE PIECE OF MIND
THE COST OF LIVING COSTS MORE THAN THE LIFE
SO WE DO WHAT WE CAN AND WHEN IT’S OUT OF OUR HAND
WE FALL WE STAND

 WE SURVIVE….WE WIN AND WE LOSE
WE LIVE AND WE LAUGH AND WE CRY
WE SURVIVE…. WE GIVE AND WE TAKE
WE LOVE AND WE HATE AND WE BARELY GET BY
BUT STILL THROUGH IT ALL WE FIND……. WE SURVIVE

 THERE ARE MOMENTS THAT WE KEEP IN OUR HEARTS
THERE WE FIND COMFORT WHEN THE ROAD GETS TO
HARD
WE SEARCH FOR A MEANING WE KEEP ASKING GOD WHY
IN HOPE WE HAVE STRENGTH…IN FAITH WE RELY

 THERE’S NOT ALWAYS A CHOICE WE GROW AND WE LEARN
TAKING OUR CHANCES…WE BEND AND WE BURN
SPINNING AROUND IN THIS CIRCLE OF LIFE
SOMETIMES WE CRASH OH BUT SOMETIMES WE CRY

WE SURVIVE….WE WIN AND WE LOSE
WE LIVE AND WE LAUGH AND WE CRY
WE SURVIVE…. WE GIVE AND WE TAKE
WE LOVE AND WE HATE AND WE BARELY GET BY
BUT STILL THROUGH IT ALL WE FIND……. WE SURVIVE



I Am There
James Lee Stanley

I AM THERE
YOU’VE HEARD MY VOICE IN A SUMMER BREEZE
YOU’VE WALKED WITH ME THRU THE AIR
YOU FELT MY SRENGHTH IN AN OCEAN’S ROAR
YOU’VE THOUGHT OF ME I AM THERE
YOU WALKED A SHORE FLYING JUST WITH ME

AS CLOUDS ARE FREE IN THE SKY
YOU TASTE MY LOVE IN A RAINDROP
YOU NEVER ASK HOW OR WHY
IN SUNSHINE FLOWERS IN RINGS AND POOLS
IN IDLE HOURS NO GAME OF FOOLS
WIND IN THE TREES THIS IS PART OF ME
SUNLIGHT AND RAINBOWS ARE THERE
YOU WISH FOR ME IN YOUR SOLITUDE
YOU WISH FOR ME
I AM THERE



Flowers For The Living
James Lee Stanley

I was only 11 when my grandfather died, but he was the King to me...He was funny and happy and so talented, we  worshiped  him. My brother was 17 at the time...Grandpop's funeral was so large
there were over 100 cars in the procession and at the viewing the room was filled to the brim with flowers...My brother was fascinated with the turnout but mostly with the flowers. He kept thinking Grandpop can't even enjoy these amazing
flowers..Who are the flowers really for? Thus he wrote this song.
