Bonds, Margaret.  He's got the whole world in his hands
Burleigh, Harry T.  Deep river.
Burleigh, Harry T.  Give me Jesus.
Burleigh, Harry T.  Steal away
Burleigh, Harry T.  There is a balm in Gilead.
Carter, John  Let us break bread together
Carter, John.  Sometimes I feel like a motherless child.
Hairston, Jester.  Guide my feet
Hayes, Mark.  Feel the spirit
Hayes, Mark.  Joshua fit the battle of Jericho.
Hayes, Mark.  Were you there? 
Johnson, Hall.  Great day
Johnson, Hall.  His name so sweet
Johnson, Hall.  Honor, honor
Johnson, Hall.  Ride on, King Jesus
Johnson, Hall.  Witness.
Lutters, Sandra.  This little light.
