Free In Jesus I own 4 of Joe's albums, and this is my favorite. ALL the words of each song are heart touching -- from God's heart to ours through Joe's. Love his voice and singing style and the anointing on his albums! Listening to Joe sing his songs causes me to want Jesus to increase my capacity to love Him more!
Honey Favorite track: Grow up to be a child.

Lori Jardine This is a beautiful song. I listen to it every morning when i wake up and every night before I go to sleep. I first heard it on one of Mr Grahams messages. You have a wonderful voice. Favorite track: I will always love you.

Track Name: Next to you
NEXT TO YOU

How I wish that you could see
That you mean so much to me

Every single day I’ve been next to you
Every single day I’ve been there by your side
Every single day I’ve been next to you
Every single day I’ve been right by your side

When you walk into a storm
My arms will keep you warm

Every single day I’ll be next to you
Every single day I’ll be there by your side
Every single day I’ll be next to you
Every single day I’ll be right by your side

Life is a journey
So precious yet so brief
Cherish each moment
For time is such a thief
Yes, time is such a thief

Love may come and love may go
But one thing you need to know

Every single day I’ll be next to you
Every single day I’ll be there by your side
Every single day I’ll be next to you
Every single day I’ll be right by your side

Life is a journey
So precious yet so brief
Cherish each moment
For time is such a thief
Yes, time is such a thief

Every single day I was next to you
Every single day I was there by your side
Every single day I was next to you
Every single day I was right by your side

Every single day I am next to you …

Every single day I’ll be next to you …
Track Name: I will always love you
I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU

I loved you long before you met me
And then you gave your life to me
But should one day you turn and walk away

I will always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you, yes I will
I always will

My love will never cease towards you
But should I have a change of heart
It is because my heart has ceased to beat

I will always love you …

When all around you seems in darkness
When you have plumbed right to the depths
No pit is so deep I’m not deeper still

I will always love you …

And when the day has almost ended
When evening comes and walls you in
When there is no one else to comfort you

I will always love you …

Here are my arms for you to cling to
Here are my wounds where you can hide
Here are the tears that I have cried for you

I will always love you …

My love is constant as the sunrise
As changeless as the stars of night
My child, as sure as the returning tide

I will always love you …
Track Name: The steadfast heart
THE STEADFAST HEART

You don’t allow yourself to need me
Out of my arms you quickly fly
You can be heartless as a shadow
Elusive as a butterfly
When are you going to believe me
I am the steadfast heart

To stand as lover and beloved
Locked in a passionate embrace
To me such moments are so precious
They cannot ever be replaced
For it is in them you’ll discover
I am the steadfast heart

Remember how our love began
How I took you by the hand
Things were very simple then
We were never apart
But when the honeymoon was through
What had started never grew
Deep inside you never knew
My steadfast heart

You have been hard to catch and conquer
Long have I laid siege to your heart
You have so many good defences
Which still are keeping us apart
We can’t go on like this forever
I am the steadfast heart

Remember how our love began …

I often feel when we are walking
Your hand is not at home in mine
How can we be part of each other
If you don’t try to make the time
Around the corner of each moment
You’ll find my steadfast heart
My steadfast heart
My steadfast heart
My steadfast heart
Track Name: My love will last
MY LOVE WILL LAST

My love will last
Though years they may pass
Should sun and moon fall from the sky
My love for you will never die

My love will last
Whatever comes to pass
The four winds may blow no more
But of my love you can be sure

And when the rivers have ceased to run
The rocks melted with the sun
The stars called home one by one
The waves may stop rushing to the shore
The oceans may cease to roar
But my love for you will last

You need to know
I’ll never let you go
And when the storm is at its height
Your Father’s arms will hold you tight

And when the rivers have ceased to run …

My love will last
Track Name: Grow up to be a child
GROW UP TO BE A CHILD

Come stroll with me now along the seashore
Side by side, arm in arm
And let us talk like we used to
Remember when our love was new

But you were young then
Less complicated
How our love grew, as at still can
Let’s start again, the tide is turning
Retrace our footprints in the sand

Come sit with me now
And watch the sunset
See the colours run and merge
And lay your head on my shoulder
And watch the golden evening glow

But as I hold you
You seem so restless
Let me caress and soothe your brow
You have grown
O how you’ve grown
Now grow up to be a child

Come walk with me now into the forest
Slip your hand into mine
And let’s exchange idle nothings
For that’s what lovers often do

Come lay your head back
And watch the night sky
Clouds are racing cross the moon
See how the stars they hang like jewels
Upon the windswept galaxies

You used to tell me
You loved me dearly
But now you think that’s not your style
You have grown
O how you’ve grown
Now grow up to be a child

Now you are older, sophisticated
You don’t embrace me like you did
And slowly space has crept between us
Like lovers lying back to back

But like a mother will rock her baby
I would hold you close to me
And I will sing over you
Until your eyes are fixed on mine

And when I have your full attention
I will speak my words to you
But you will never understand
‘Til you grow up to be a child
‘Til you grow up to be a child
Grow up to be a child
Track Name: No one loves you like I do
NO ONE LOVES YOU LIKE I DO

I’ve walked with you along life’s road
Always shared your heavy load
And when the pain became too great
It was then that I took the weight

Times have been hard these past few years
Lonely nights fighting back the tears
But not one tear escaped my eye
It was then that I stood you bye

No one loves you like I do
With a love so strong and true
You could search the whole world through
No one loves you like I do

I’ve always known what’s best for you
Hence the trials that you’ve been through
But as I seek your highest good
It is then I’m misunderstood

Like flowers need both sun and rain
Your heart needs joy and pain
For in those times when tears flow
It is then tenderness can grow

No one loves you like I do

I give my word, I will be most
To all those who need me most
When hearts are sad and loss is great
It is then I’ll come to your aid

When all the roads to go are gone
And your life its course has run
Stood face, you’ll see my eyes
It is then you will realize

No one loves you like I do …
Track Name: I'd die for you
I’D DIE FOR YOU

I’d die for you
Again if I had to
In all the human race
Nobody else
Could take your place

My heart is yours
Stop trying to win it
I take great pride in you
And you must too
It’s time you knew
You are worth so much to me

Some day
You wondered if someone
Could make you feel somehow
That you were loved
You are someone who needs loving
But loving is something
That’s so hard to find

You are unique
You’re my prized possession
In your complexity
And mystery
You speak of me

I’d die for you
Again if I had to
There are no lengths to which
I would not go
To let you know
You are worth so much to me

Some day …

I’d die for you
Again if I had to
Track Name: When you're distressed
WHEN YOU’RE DISTRESSED

When you’re distressed
I too am distressed
When you are cut I am bleeding
When you are lonely
You’re never forgotten
I know just how you are feeling

Spring doesn’t come
‘Til winter has gone
Then new life can start once again
Just like the rainbow will follow the rain
My glory will follow your pain

So, through adversity
You will come to see
Your deep need of me
So, though a rope looks strong
You won’t know how strong
‘Til you’re clinging to it

It’s through the hard times
Not so much the good times
That we’ve grown much closer together
When you cannot find me
There’s one place that I’ll be
With you at the end of your tether

I am a prisoner
Of my loving nature
My child, I will never forsake you
Wherever you run to
My love will confront you
A welcome will always await you

So, when the nights are long
When you have no one
To depend upon
Know I helped you before
I can help once more
That’s what I am here for

When times are hardest
And night’s at its darkest
Then my stars can shine even brighter
Only in combat
Will you ever find that
I’ve put deep within you a fighter

In your despair
I always was there
To lead you through trial and sorrow
Those days are fading
New frontiers are waiting
Ahead lies a brand new tomorrow

So, in the coming years
When there’s times of tears
Stand and face your fears
Know though the wild winds blow
I won’t let you go
My love’s never fading
Track Name: Come what may
COME WHAT MAY

When there’s hard times or there’s good times
When the rain falls or the sun shines
When I’m needy or I’ve plenty
Lord, not one thing will prevent me

I will love you come what may
I will love you every day
I will love you now and for evermore

When your presence seems so distant
When my doubts seem so persistent
Then no matter how I‘m feeling
Lord, on one thing I’m unyielding

I will love you come what may …

When the past seems to pursue me
When temptation whispers to me
When my worst fears are awakened
Lord, on one thing I’m unshaken

I will love you come what may …
