NO PLAN B LYRICS

No Plan B | Words and Music by Carman

Years ago I made a choice, a super-sized vow
Said I’d live for Jesus, and never back down
Put pedal to the metal, win lose or draw
Everything I am, everything I’ll be, God had it all
He’s always been so faithful, He’s done more than He should
He’s my hope, He’s my joy, He’s always done me good

The road’s been a long one, it’s always been a fight
But God had my back deep into the night
He’s been my plan A, now everyone can see
I’m living for the Lord and there’s no plan B

I walked away from Krishna, Kabbalah had me bored
Buddha’s not my cup of tea, Muhammad’s not my Lord
There is no other option, the Holy Bible say
Jesus is the Son of God and still the only way
He’s what we’ve all been wanting, He’s what the public craves
He’s the king of everything, He’s the one who saves

The road’s been a long one, it’s always been a fight
But God had my back deep into the night
He’s been my plan A, now everyone can see
I’m living for the Lord and there’s no plan B

Jesus is my A, and there’s no plan B
Jesus is my A, and there’s no plan B, come on now
Jesus is my A, and there’s no plan B, come on
Jesus is my A, there’s no plan B

The road’s been a long one, it’s always been a fight
But God had my back deep into the night
He’s been my plan A, now everyone can see
I’m living for the Lord and there’s no plan B

Jesus is my A, and there’s no plan B
Jesus is my A, and there’s no plan B, come on now
Jesus is my A, and there’s no plan B, come on
Jesus is my A, and there’s no plan B


Time 2 P.T.L. | Words and Music by Carman

Everybody clap your hands, everybody take a stand
Everybody don’t you know, it’s time to praise the Lord

Everybody clap your hands, everybody take a stand
Everybody don’t you know, it’s time to praise the Lord

It’s time to praise Him
Lift up His Holy name
Let everyone proclaim
That He alone is King of kings, and Lord of lords
Praise Him, for everything He’s done
For sending His only son
Who lived and died was crucified and rose again

Everybody clap your hands, everybody take a stand
Everybody don’t you know, it’s time to praise the Lord

It’s time to praise Him
Lift up His holy name
Let everyone proclaim
That He alone is King of kings, and Lord of lords
Praise Him, for everything He’s done
Sending His only son
Who lived and died was crucified and rose again

Higher, high upon the throne
Lift Him higher
He’s God and God alone

Higher, high upon the throne
Lift Him higher
He’s God and God alone

Higher, high upon the throne
Lift Him higher, He’s God and God alone

Higher, high upon the throne
Lift Him higher, He’s God and God alone

Everybody clap your hands, everybody take a stand
Everybody don’t you know, it’s time to praise the Lord
It’s time to praise the Lord
It’s time to praise the Lord


I'm Coming Home | Words and Music by Carman

I was the one who walked
I was the one who ran away
Never knowing where the road would lead
Or all the tears I’d shed along the way

You were the One who talked
You were the One who said to stay
Never growing tired of waiting for me
To end the years of hopelessness now to hear me say

Lord I’m coming home, Lord I’m coming home, Lord I’m coming home to stay
Lord I know I need to be whole and clean, Lord I’m coming home today

Lord I’m coming home, Lord I’m coming home, Lord I’m coming home to stay
Lord I know I need to be whole and clean, Lord I’m coming home today

Jesus take my heart
Jesus take my hand
Jesus take all of me, everything I am
Lord take everything I am, I’m coming home

Lord I’m coming home, Lord I’m coming home, Lord I’m coming home to stay
Lord I know I need to be whole and clean, Lord I’m coming home today

I’m coming home

I was the one who walked
You were the One who talked
I ran away, You said to stay
Now I’m comin’ home


God Made Man | Words and Music by Carman

I was hangin’ on the corner at Caparelli’s Deli
With junior with the hairdo and Big Nose Mo
There was Hopalong Casedicci talkin’ bout his news shoes
And some other mamaluke that I don’t know
When dis cute little cupcake rolls up with a Bible
Like a noisy chiacchierone started preachin’ with her hands
I said “Yo, statazee, enough already wit the Christianese
You’re gonna have to say it so a wiseguy understands
So she said

I got good news
For all ah you crooks
Ya get a little sit-down
He’ll open da books
You takin’ da oath
And then you be
A blood bought member of the family

I got good news
He opened the door
To a one in a million all time score
Ya get straightened out
And here’s da plan
Ya gonna get your button
And be a God made man

She said, “Look at you ‘Marone’
Your life is full of agita
Your eyes got the malocchio
And your brain is half ubatz
Now the big Capo Upstairs offers forgiveness
And what da devil ever give you?
He gave you ugats
I said “Alright Managia
It’s time for spring cleaning”
So we prayed right there that I would be part of the crew
Then I got shaken down by Angels
Whacked by the Holy Ghost
God himself reached down and pulled me out
The peiche a deux

And you know what?

I got good news
For all ah you crooks
Ya get a little sit-down
He’ll open da books
Ya takin’ da oath
And then you be
A blood bought member of the family

I got good news
He opened the door
To a one in a million all time score
Ya get straightened out
And here’s da plan
Ya gonna get your button
And be a God made man

So I ratted out the devil
Now I’m a witness in protection
With a whole new direction
I want to shout it
I got a new life and a new route
A new name and a new suit
So did he offer me a good deal?
Ay, Forgettaboutit!

I got good news
For all you crooks
You get a little sit-down
He’ll open the books
Ya takin’ the oath
And then you be
A blood bought member of the family

I got good news
He opened the door
To a one in a million all time score
Ya get straightened out
And here’s da plan
You gonna get your button
And be a God made man


Peace Of The Lord | Words and Music by Carman

The Peace of the Lord is keeping my soul
God in control I’m at peace
The Peace of the Lord is keeping my soul
God’s word will forever hold my mind together
The Peace of the Lord is keeping my soul
God in control I’m at peace

Like the force of the thunder or the roar of the beast
Fear is drawing me under, and it gives no release
But my worries are taken, by the word in my soul
And my faith is awakened with my God in control

The Peace of the Lord is keeping my soul
God’s word will forever hold my mind together
The Peace of the Lord is keeping my soul
God in control I’m at peace.

The Peace of the Lord is keeping my soul
God’s word will forever hold my mind together
The Peace of the Lord is keeping my soul
God in control I’m at peace.

The Peace of the Lord is keeping my soul
God’s word will forever hold my mind together
The Peace of the Lord is keeping my soul
God in control I’m at peace

God in control, I’m at Peace
God in control, I’m at Peace
God in control, I’m at Peace


Jesus Heal Me | Words and Music by Carman

The spirit of the Lord is here to heal
The presence of the Holy One revealed
Is faith enough for a miracle today
So believe this and receive this as you say, you say

Jesus heal me, Jesus heal me
Oh Lord Jesus touch my life, my body and my mind
Jesus heal me, Jesus heal me
By Your stripes Jesus, heal me tonight

Jesus heal me, Jesus heal me
Oh Lord Jesus touch my life, my body and my mind
Jesus heal me, Jesus heal me
By Your stripes Jesus, heal me tonight

God you always do what Your word says
It accomplishes everything it set out to do
It never returns void, and it is life to all our flesh
So in confidence, I speak the words of faith
And resist all sickness and disease
And take hold of the promises that are in Your word to heal me

Lord Jesus I believe that You are touching me right now
For the scripture says that You not only forgive all my sins
But You heal all my diseases
For I believe that as the Bible says we will lay hands on the sick
And they shall recover
So now I give You praise for providing everything I need to recover
And walk in complete wholeness
I thank You for satisfying me with long life
For I shall live and not die

Jesus heal me, Jesus heal me
Oh Lord Jesus touch my life, my body and my mind
Jesus heal me, Jesus heal me
By Your stripes Jesus, heal me tonight
By Your stripes Jesus, heal me tonight
Lord, by Your stripes, Jesus heal me, heal me tonight

Wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities
The chastisement of our peace was upon Him
By His stripes, we have been healed

Another Day | Words and Music by Carman

When I pray I seek an answer
I don’t want a song and dance or
Assume I know and take a chance or go astray

Listen now to my request and
Send a word so I can rest and
Get direction to my question, and feel ok

But I know not now don’t mean never
So I’ll just do what I must do and trust You forever

An answer soon will come my way, but it may come another day
The wind will blow the clouds away, but it may blow another day
God’s promises are always true, a rainbow somewhere waits there too
But until then, You’ll see me through another day

Like the boy with loaves and fishes
I got hopes and lots of wishes
It would be just so delicious to hear Your voice

Oh sometimes I want to weep Lord
A hundred prayers and not a peep Lord
Give me something I can keep Lord through the noise

Cuz I know not now don’t mean never
So I’ll just do what I must do and trust You forever

An answer soon will come my way, but it may come another day
The wind will blow the clouds away, but it may blow another day
God’s promises are always true, a rainbow somewhere waits there too
But until then, You’ll see me through another day

God’s promises are always true, a rainbow somewhere waits there too
But until then, You’ll see me through another day

An answer soon will come my way, but it may come another day
An answer soon will come my way, but it may come another day
An answer soon will come my way


Yes Yes | Words and Music by Carman

Everybody wants to know
Do you wanna ask me now
They wanna find out if the rumor’s really true
Do I really still consider that I am a born againer like all the other born againers do

Do I shout, do I pray
Do I act up in a way like I’m radically saved on fire
Do I ever make a scene, do I holler, do I scream
Do I always wanna lift Him higher
I don’t keep it to myself, I don’t put it on a shelf, I don’t ever wanna lose a riot
I’ll settle the debate, I’ll tell it to you straight, I’m never gonna keep it quiet
Come on now

Yes yes yes yes I know Him, yes I’m born again
He’s my Lord, He’s my Savior, yes yes, He’s my friend
Yes yes yes yes I know Him, yes I’m born again
He’s my Lord and He’s my Savior, Yes yes He’s my friend

Tell me, tell me, tell me, c'mon and try and sell me
Is it absolutely and completely true
Yes I hear it every day, all the time in every way
Like all the others every time I do
Sunday’s really on the way, like I said back in the day
And it's always in His heart to please us
No way I'm not ashamed, I love to say His name
I'll always be addicted to Jesus
I'm not timid like a mouse, I know who's in the house
I say it as I rock the microphone
The God, in whom I trust, makes Satan bite the dust
He’s still the one and only Champion

Yes yes yes yes I know Him, yes I’m born again
He’s my Lord, He’s my Savior, yes yes, He’s my friend
Yes yes yes yes I know Him, yes I’m born again
He’s my Lord and He’s my Savior, yes yes He’s my friend

Everybody make a joyful noise, everybody gonna hear our voice
Everybody make a joyful noise, and hear our voice out loud
Everybody make a joyful noise, everybody gonna hear our voice
Everybody make a joyful noise, and here we go right now

Everybody make a joyful noise, everybody gonna hear our voice
Everybody make a joyful noise, and hear our voice out loud
Everybody make a joyful noise, everybody gonna hear our voice
Everybody make a joyful noise, and here we go right now

Yes yes yes yes I know Him, yes I’m born again
He’s my Lord, He’s my Savior, yes yes, He’s my friend
Yes yes yes yes I know Him, yes I’m born again
He’s my Lord and He’s my Savior, yes yes He’s my friend

Yes yes He’s my friend
Yes yes, He’s my friend


I Did My Best | Words and Music by Carman

Lord I did my best
In spite of all my faults you know I tried
Whether I was right or wrong you saw inside
And knew that you had all of me,
Lord I did my best
Often times mistakes would be there too
I just did what I believed you wanted me to do
When I’m finally laid to rest
I can say I faced the test
And pressing toward the mark, I did my best

Lord I did my best
In spite of all my faults you know I tried
Whether I was right or wrong you saw inside
And knew that you had all of me
Lord I did my best
Often times mistakes would be there too
I just did what I believed you wanted me to do
So when I’m finally laid to rest
I can say I faced the test
And pressing toward the mark, I did my best


That's My King / Radically Saved | Words and Music by Carman

The Bible says He’s King of the Jews
King of righteousness
King of glory too

He’s enshrined as sovereign king in every way
He’s king of the heavens, the ages and more
He’s King of all kings and Lord of all lords
Now that’s my king and I wonder, does anybody know Him today

He’s endurably strong, entirely sincere
Eternally steadfast, impervious to fear
He’s immortally graceful with the impartial mercy He’s shown

He’s been misinterpreted and misrepresented yet
He’s unparalleled and unprecedented
As the greatest phenomenon this world has ever known

No means of measure can begin to define His limitless love for all mankind
He’s a sinner’s savior and the one true only way
He’s the loftiest idea in all literature read
The highest ideal in a philosopher’s head
He’s the real master of the universe, now do you know my king today

He’s limitless in goodness and mercy and love
His grace is sufficient His word is enough
He’s the key to all knowledge and the pathway to every good thing
He’s the highway to righteousness compassion to indifference, the wellspring of wisdom
The doorway to deliverance, you can’t live without Him and you can’t out live Him
Does anybody know my king

Pilate couldn’t fault Him and angry mob couldn’t chill Him
The cross didn’t slow Him, Herod couldn’t kill Him Death couldn’t handle Him and the grave could not hold Him down

He’ll make you want to sing, He’ll make you clap your hands
He’ll make you want to testify and preach to every man and sometimes
He’ll make you want to stand up, make some noise and just shout

Jesus Christ is Lord and God’s still on the throne
There’s power in the blood, and I’m saved to the bone
The devil comes against me, he gonna feel some pain
I can bind him bruise him cast him out by the power of Jesus’ name

No longer on the outside, on the inside that I stand,
I’m sold out, the whole route, completely born again
I believe on the third day Jesus rose from the grave
The world thinks I’m crazy, I am just radically saved

Choose you this day, tell me who will you serve
Now’s the time to stand up, let your voice be heard
You gotta come out from among the rest, and tell the gospel tale
You tell them black is black and white is white
Hell is hot and sin ain’t right, God is holy and Christ is comin’
And righteousness will prevail

Tell it to you once, I’ll tell it to you twice
Only thing that’s going to change this world is the gospel of Jesus Christ
Will-be saints won’t survive in spiritual warfare
If you know that Jesus is the only way
Let me hear somebody say yeah, oh yeah

No longer on the outside, on the inside we now stand
We are sold out the hold out, anybody born again
We believe on the third day, Jesus, He rose from the grave
The world thinks we’re crazy, our friends think we are crazy
Hey man, even our family thinks we’re crazy
But we are just what? We are radically saved

Oh yeah
We’re blood bought
Red hot
Bible thumpin’
Pew jumpin’
Sin defacin’
Demon chasin’
Gospel preachin’
Soul reachin’
Jesus lovin’
Devil shovin’
Soul redeemin’
Shoutin’ screamin’
Radically saved, yah, yah


The Flag | Words and Music by Carman

I pledge allegiance to the flag
Of the United States of America
And to the republic For which it stands
One nation
Under God
Undivisible
With liberty and justice for all

The flag of our fathers, the symbol of our country
Three colors that embody all we can be
It represents the heights of achievement
Its citizens could rise to
And the sacrifice of life that made us free

Free to learn, free to speak Free to worship God
Free to dream a dream and see it through
But a freedom that is purchased
By the selfless ones who serve us
They represent the red, the white, the blue

That’s why red stands for courage
White stands for truth
Blue for perseverance to a call
This flag sends a message to friend and foe alike
That America’s still the greatest land of all

We’re a unique breed of people
A condensation of cultures
A blending of our family trees, it’s true
We can clutch an idea and see it through to resolution
We’re Americans, there’s nothing we can’t do

We’re a gold medal nation
A society of champions
We build monuments and wonders to display
We’ve touched the ocean floor
And walked men on the moon
And that flag’s still planted there today
So let our banner waive
And promise a better life
Then people from all nations can proclaim
When the symbol of our hope is raised
The stars and stripes forever
We the people will stand up proud and say

I pledge allegiance
To the flag
Of the United States of America
And to the republic
For which it stands
One nation
Under God
Indivisible
With liberty and justice for all

Liberty and justice
Liberty and justice
Liberty and justice for all
