Cheer Up, Ye Saints of God
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, 7 casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. – I Peter 5:6,7
We can live without suffocating worry that strangles our faith and drains our joy. To all our fears the Lord says quite simply: “I am with you always. Fear not.”
Here is an acapella gospel medley with a bit of an Irish twist, sung by Jody Nelson at the Goldfield GospelGrass Festival in Apache Junction, AZ
Cheer Up Ye Saints of God
Cheer up ye saints of God,
There’s nothing to worry about;
Nothing to make you feel afraid,
Nothing to make you doubt.
Remember Jesus never fails,
So why not trust him and shout!
You’ll be sorry you worried at all, tomorrow morning.
Gone, Gone, Gone, Yes My Sins Are Gone
Gone, gone, gone, gone,
Yes my sins are gone.
Now my soul is free and in my hearts a song.
Buried in the deepest sea
Yes, that’s good enough for me
I shall live eternally
Praise God! My sins are g-o-n-e, gone!
