1. What Heaven Sees in You

(Doug Walker / Sherry Marks Walker)
Performed by: Doug Walker

Sent to this earth
You were saved through the ages for this day
and time
Child of great worth
Child of promise, daughter of the Divine
Pure and holy in a little, white dress
You were held in a circle and you were
blessed
And the Father looked down
And the angels surrounded that place
They knew the truth, all that you could do
And you will, too, if you have eyes to see
What heaven sees in you
Dressed in white once more
Making promises to follow in God’s way
So much lies in store
For the little girl who enters at the gate
Pure and holy in a little, white dress
You were led into the water and you were
blessed
Repeat Chorus
Do you understand who you are
Part of the Father lives in you
If you continue on this path
Every promise God has given will come true
Heaven on earth
In the house of God, so much fills your heart
and mind
Woman of great worth
Woman of promise, daughter of the Divine
Pure and holy in a long, white dress
You promise forever and you are blessed
And the Father looks down
And the angels surround that place
They know the truth, all that you can do
And you do, too, ‘cause you have eyes to see
What heaven sees in you
Will you have eyes to see
What heaven sees in you

2. Pure

(Doug Walker)
Performed by: Katherine Nelson

Pure as the driven snow
Pure like a summer rain
Pure as the sunlight
That falls from heaven to my face
Pure like the morning dew that
touches the earth
Father I will live pure

Pure like a prophet’s heart
Pure as a baby’s eyes
Pure like a mother’s love
Pure as someone just baptized
Pure like Thine only Son, my Savior
Father I will live pure

There in the garden He opened the door
So I could live pure

Pure like Thine only Son, my Savior
Father I will live pure

3 The Mountain of the Lord

(Doug Walker)
Performed by: Jenny Jordan Frogley

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the
mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the
top of the mountains...And many people shall go and
say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the
Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach
us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths...”
--Isaiah 2:2-3

There is a place on earth
Where I can touch heaven
Where I can leave the world
Remember who I am
Where I can stand on holy ground
Where peace and comfort can be found
A sacred part of truth restored
There at the Mountain of the Lord

Inside His Holy House
There lies the power to bind
In heaven as on earth
The family of mankind
God’s work on earth and beyond the grave
So many souls He wants to save
I will be part of these truths restored
There at the Mountain of the Lord

So let us go up and He will teach us
    His ways
And we will walk in His paths to the end
    of our days
There is safety inside and power to spare
That comes from the promises we make
    there

If hallowed walls could speak
What scenes have they beheld
Angels and Heavenly Hosts
The Savior, God Himself
Yet to this place He lets me go
Commune with Him and fill my soul
And something strikes a familiar chord
There at the Mountain of the Lord

There at the Mountain of the Lord.

4. Faith

(Lyrics: Sherry Marks Walker
Music: Doug Walker)
Performed by: Doug Walker

When Faith was smaller,
    she had a treasure
Made just for little girls
Though made of plastic,
    she loved to wear them
Her own strand of shiny pearls
Faith had a father, kind and gentle
How he loved his little girl
One night at bedtime he asked her
Will you give me your pearls

Oh no, not my pearls, Faith said
How about my teddy instead
And he said, your Daddy loves you –
    it’s okay
And with a kiss, he tucked in, his little
    Faith

As Faith grew, now and then he’d ask her
To give him her precious pearls
And though she loved him
    she couldn’t give up
Her favorite thing in this world
Until one night, she said through her tears
Daddy, these are for you
As she let go of her little treasure
He was crying too

As he took her worn, plastic pearls
Around her neck he placed
A beautiful strand of genuine pearls
He had saved just for his sweet Faith

For all this world may have in store
He waits with so much more
Your Father loves you, it’s okay
To let go of what you hold with Faith

Lyrics based on the story “The Treasure” by Alice Gray
from the book “More Stories for the Heart”

5. The Things I Know

(Doug Walker)
Performed by: Mercy River

I know little babies come from heaven
I know God made those tiny hands and
    hearts
I know rainbows and roses are no accident
Neither are the sun, the moon, and stars

So when I doubt
When there are things in life I just can’t
    figure out
I trust that God is in control
And I hold on to the things I know

I know death is not the end of my soul
I know something divine lives in us all
I know there is someone watching over me
I know my prayers are heard beyond
    these walls

Repeat Chorus

What good is a test if all the answers are
there in front of you
Some things take faith, I know that’s true

I know a little baby came from Heaven
The promise of the whole human race
I know nothing else can hold a candle
To His love , His mercy, and His grace

So when I doubt
When there are things in life I just can’t
    figure out
I’ll trust that He is in control
And I’ll hold on to the things I know
I’ll hold on to the things I know

6. Integrity

(Doug Walker)
Performed by: Katherine Nelson

“I have been asked what I mean by word of honor. I will
tell you. Place me behind prison walls—
walls of stone ever so high, ever so thick, reaching ever
so far into the ground—there is a possibility that in
some way or another I may escape; but stand me on the
floor and draw a chalk line around me and have me give
my word of honor never to cross it. Can I get out of the
circle? No. Never! I’d die first!” —Karl G. Maeser


Put me in a cell with walls made out of stone
Behind bars of steel and leave me there alone
Find a desert isle and leave me there at sea
There still might be a way to escape and be
    set free, but
    
Draw a circle all around me
And have me give my word never to step out
Once you had my word of honor
I would never cross no—I would be bound
That’s who I choose to be
Someone with integrity


Once I had a friend ask me to cross the line
Said that I should bend just this one time
It tested my resolve, wasn’t easy to resist
But something deep inside reminded me
    of this

There is a circle all around me
And I gave my word never to step out
I will keep my word of honor
I will never cross yes—I am bound
That’s who I choose to be
Someone with integrity

I choose to be
Someone with integrity

7. What I’ve Become

(Doug Walker)
Performed by: Doug Walker

A farmer spends his day plowing rows and
planting seeds
    And come October he knows what will grow
It’s been that way since time began and it
    will never change
You will always reap just what you sow

My life is made of seeds
Every one I plant becomes part of me
Good or bad ones, I must choose
And I should think about the future when
    I do
‘Cause when the harvest finally comes
I will reap what I’ve become

Have you ever seen a tapestry, a priceless
work of art
    And seen how every color plays a role
Every thread is woven carefully into its proper place
Until the masterpiece is finally whole

My life is made of threads
Every one I sew should be my best
Good or bad ones, I must choose
And I should think about the future when
    I do
‘Cause when the tapestry is done
My masterpiece will be what I’ve become

I will stand before the Savior when this life
    comes to an end
Will the seeds I have sown have made me
    more like Him

My life is made of seeds
Every one I plant becomes part of me
Good or bad ones, I must choose
And I should think about the future when
I do
‘Cause when the harvest finally comes
I will reap what I’ve become

I will reap what I’ve become

8. Jesus Would

(Doug Walker)
Performed by: Kristine Oliver

If there were just one in a hundred souls
Who found themselves far from the fold
If the way to their rescue was rough and
    unsure
And staying behind would be easier
Who would go to save them or be willing
    to try
Jesus would, would I

If there were someone who needed a friend
Who was different than most, never seemed
    to fit in
And it would mean taking time I could use
    for myself
And it would be easier left to someone else
Who would take them in who would take
the time
    Jesus would, would I

Is there any doubt what He would do
If the one in need were me or you
Jesus would give His life
All over again in the blink of an eye
If I were in His shoes would I

If I were asked to spend all my days
Loving my neighbor, walking in God’s ways
And if sometimes that road was lonely and
    long
And the burdens I carried made it hard to
    go on
Would I stay on the path all my life
Jesus would
Jesus did, will I

9. Witnesses of His Love

(Doug Walker / Sherry Marks Walker)
Performed by: Women’s Choir

We are daughters of God
Called before the world began
He knows us by name and His Spirit is
    leading us
He sent us to earth to be witnesses
    of His love

We are sisters in Christ
And together we testify
That He is unfailing and worthy of
    all our trust
We have been blessed and are witnesses
    of His love

At all times, in all things
In all places that we may be in
Witnesses of His love
At all times, in all things
In all places that we may be in
Witnesses of His love

We are true to His name
And the price that He willingly paid
Giving His life and saving us one by one
Humbly we’ll stand as witnesses of His love

We are daughters of God
Called before the world began

10. When the Savior Comes Again

(Doug Walker / Sherry Marks Walker)
Performed by: Jen Marco Handy

When the Savior comes again
Will He call me up to Him
And let me feel the nail prints in His hands
    and in His feet

When I look into His face
And am caught in His embrace
Will I finally understand my worth and what
    He sees in me
When the Savior comes again

When the Savior comes again
Will I remember every sin
Or will I look back and know that I have
    given Him my best

When that day finally arrives
Will there be loved ones by my side
Will we go on together there forever in His
    eternal rest
When the Savior comes again

When the Savior comes again
