We all have our favorite songs in life. Two of my favorite are songs that I have come to know in the last two years. One of these songs we sing in our church services, the words are so meaningful-it is the first song I am putting in. Read these words, let them soak in, realizing the truth about our God.
The second song I heard with my husband at the first Southern Gospel Festival held at Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO. I had never heard of this group, but have fallen in love with their music, the way they praise God through their music, their singing. God blessed them all with beautiful voices & they in return have used their voices to praise God with songs full of beautiful words, teaching others of God's love for them. This group is Karen Peck & New River.



Ancient Words

Lynn DeShazo

Holy words long preserved
For our walk in this world.
They resound with God's own heart. O let the ancient words impart.
Words of life, words of hope,Give us strength, help us cope.
In this world, where'er we roam, Ancient words will guide us home.
Chorus:
Ancient words, ever true,Changing me and changing you.
We have come with open hearts. O let the ancient words impart.
Holy words of our faith Handed down to this age
Came to us through sacrifice.O heed the faithful words of Christ!
Holy words long preserved For our walk in this world.
They resound with God's own heart. O let the ancient words impart.
Chorus:
Ancient words, ever true, Changing me and changing you.
We have come with open hearts. O let the ancient words impart.



"Four Days Late"

Written by Aaron Wilburn
Performed by Karen Peck and New River


  • The news came to Jesus, Please come fast
  • Lazarus is sick and without your help he will not last
  • Mary and Martha watched their brother die
  • They waited for Jesus, He did not come And they wondered why.
    The death watch was over, Buried four days
  • Somebody said He'll soon be here, the Lord's on His way
  • Martha ran to Him and then she cried
  • Lord if you had been here You could have healed him
  • He'd still be alive
  • But You're four days late And all hope is gone
  • Lord we don't understand why you've waited so long
  • But His way is God's way Not yours or mine
  • When He's four days late He's still on time
  • Jesus said Martha show me the grave,
  • But she said LordYou don't understand He's been there four days
  • The grave stone was rolled back, Then Jesus criedLazarus come forth
  • then somebody said He's alive, He's alive
  • But You're four days late And all hope is gone
  • Lord we don't understand why you've waited so long
  • But His way is God's way Not yours or mine
  • When He's four days late He's still on time
  • You may be fighting a battle of fear
  • You've cried to the Lord I need You nowBut he has not appeared.
  • Friend don't be discouraged Cause He's still the same
  • He'll soon be here He'll roll back the stone
  • And He'll call out your name
  • But You're four days late And all hope is gone
  • Lord we don't understand why you've waited so long
  • But His way is God's way Not yours or mine
  • When He's four days late He's still on time

I love to hear my sweet husband sing. He is a blessing to me, a blessing from God that I truly cherish. He has the voice of an angel, a voice every one loves to hear. He has used his voice for God, to sing for people, to praise God giving him the glory, easing peoples heart and soul. I have been so blessed to have spent 30 years with this blessing from God for me. I have given my heart and soul to this man, thanking God every day for him. I am proud to be my husband's wife, proud to be the wife of such a godly man.
