Story

When I get to Heaven is a song that Raelynn Parkin began in 1993 but never finished.  When her husband Paul began to write a children's Easter play, this song found its perfected form.  This song is about a child who is captive in a wheel chair but dreams of one day walking if not in this earth then with Jesus on Heaven.

Verse 1:       

They gathered one day in Sunday School

They talked of dreams of who they’d be

One shy little psalmist began to say

This is who I want to be someday.

 

Chorus 1:   

When I get to Heaven, I want to sing like David

When I get to Heaven, I want my song to touch God’s own heart

When I get to heaven, A royal King and Priest I’ll be

Oh God please hear my prayer

I want to be like David when I get there.

 

Verse 2:      

Then another child spoke

He stuttered and clammered for every word he could

All of Heaven turned their ear

As he spoke his imperfect prayer.

 

Chorus 2:     

When I get to Heaven, I want to be like Moses

When I get to Heaven, I want to speak and the waters part

When I get to Heaven, Signs and wonders I’ll declare

Oh God please hear my prayer

I want to be like Moses when I get there.

 

Verse 3:      

One child sat straight up

With excitement in his face

As he straightened his legs in his wheelchair

He closed his eyes to imagine he could be

As he spoke these words of faith.

 

Chorus 3:    

When I get to heaven, I want to walk like Jesus

When I get to Heaven, I want to walk the streets of gold.

When I get to Heaven, I want to walk with my Jesus.

Oh God, please hear my prayer,

I want to be like Jesus when I get there.

 

Chorus 4:  

When I get to heaven, I want to walk like Jesus

When I get to Heaven,

The lame shall walk and the dumb shall speak,

When I get to Heaven, I want to walk with my Jesus.

Oh God, please hear my prayer,

I want to be like Jesus when I get there.

Story

Not Him is a personal narrative by a worshipper who loved Jesus, watching the Savior as he journeyed to the cross. The death, burial and resurrection are displayed through this entire song.  Very powerful and very moving.  It was written exactly one year before the Passion of the Christ hit the theaters, and when it was written, Raelynn was writing this song in the theater while waiting for another movie.

Verse 1:       

The road was paved with good intentions

The crowd was unified that day

The sky grew dark and threatened rain

Some said a storm would come this way.

Then down a winding path, I saw

Two splintered logs that made a cross.

And one man I couldn’t even see his eyes

Thru blood, sweat, and tears, he faintly cried.

 

Chorus 1:    

(I said,) Not Him, I saw him feed five thousand

Not Him, He made blind eyes see,

Not Him, He loved the unlovely

Not Him, He touched my life and I will never be the same.

 

Verse 2:     

They lifted Him up for all men to see

The anguish and pain transformed his face.

They mocked Him, and cast lots for His clothes,

They were insane.

The man who gave hope, was dying there alone in utter shame.

I heard Him cry, “Father, forgive them,”

And with His last breath, He hung his head, and died.

 

Chorus 2:  

(I cried), Not Him, I saw Him walk upon the water.

Not Him, He set a captive man free.

Not Him, He healed the lepers, and raised the dead.

Not Him, He touched my life and I will never be the same.

 

Chorus 3:      

It’s Him, they said they saw Him alive      

It’s Him, He rose again like He said He would.

It’s Him, He paid my price I could not pay.

It’s Him, He gave me life, and I will never be the same.

Verse 1:

He is calling you to come today

Jesus won’t ever turn you away

For He laid down His life for you

To give you life anew.

 

Verse 2:

If you feel Him drawing you today

Come to Jesus, don’t turn Him away

Surrender your life to the One

Who loves you and makes you complete.

 

Verse 3:

He is calling you to come today

Jesus won’t ever turn you away.

Story

Unless You Come was written the day after Paul and Raelynn went to South Africa, and is a Bride Song from that country.   It is a desperate cry for the Lord to come and change the things that no one else can, unless He comes.

Verse 1:      

How I need your Presence

How I need for You to come

Lord bring your Fresh Fire

Bring us into your Holy Desire

 

Chorus:   

Unless You come with Your Majesty

Your Power and Authority

You’re clothing us as Royalty

Unless You come,  unless You come

 

Verse 2:    

Lord I’ve come for just a taste

Longing for Heaven’s embrace

Lord I want to look into Your face,

I want to feel the rains of Glory and Grace.

 

Chorus:   

Unless You come with Your Majesty

Your Power and Authority

You’re clothing us as Royalty

Unless You come, 

Unless You come.

 

Bridge:    

Blessed are the Pure in Heart

Blessed for they shall see their God

Blessed are the Pure in Heart

For they shall see their God

As He comes, As He comes,

As He comes for them.

 

Worship:

Come, Lord Jesus, come.

Come, Lord Jesus, come.

Come, Lord Jesus, come.

Come, Lord Jesus.

 

Chorus:

Unless You come with Your Majesty

Your Power and Authority

You're clothing us as royalty.

Unless You come, unless You come,

Unless You come for us.
