about

This album was recorded live at the Newman Center in Tempe, Arizona, September 18, 1982. Remastered July 2017 (from cassette!), released July 5, 2017.

This album contains the recordings of a Chosen concert performed live back in 1982. The recording quality is not professional and the playing is not without goofs and mixing issues. But it's about the best example still existing of what we sounded like back then. By request, most of the verbal meanderings between songs have been excised.

The nominal album charge is considered to be for Chosen's compositions. Cover tunes copyrighted by other artists are not available for individual download and are not considered to be part of the album's price. Think of them as "bonus tracks".

A PDF "liner notes" booklet is in development and will include song lyrics (including lyrics and credits for the cover tunes), plus an assortment of Chosen photos from the early '80's. Check back later to download it.

Track Name: Chains of Steel
I think I hear a knockin',
There's an echo in my brain,
Where's the door, I know it's open,
There's that echo once again!
Do you worry "Am I worthy?"
The knockin's still upon the door
My strength is wanin'
I can't take this any more!

CHORUS:
I can feel the change is comin'
But I just don't know
If I turn my eyes upon You,
Will You show me where to go?
I wanna pull the door back,
But I just can't break these chains of steel!
These chains of steel, these chains of steel ...

Oh, I'm in the middle
Bound by sorrow and by shame.
Are You sure You really want me?
Am I going to be the same?
When Your power begins to change me
Will it hurt and will I cry?
The fool in me screams liar!
But my heart says he's the lie.

CHORUS

Can you stand to hear the knockin'
Open up to see the light
Where dark shines bright as day
And weakness is as might
You've got to open up your eyes
To know that it is real.
His power's so strong
That He broke these chains of steel!

I can feel the change has come
And now I know
I turned my eyes upon Him
And He showed me where to go!
You oughta pull the door back,
Let Him break your chains of steel.
Your chains of steel, your chains of steel
Track Name: Have You Not Heard?
In a breeze comes The Word
Renewing strength for your life
Gently leading those who are young
By the greatness of His might
Has it not been told you
From the beginning?

Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The Lord everlasting, our God
Is creator of all, to the end of the earth
Listen, listen, He's calling your name!

His power is strong, no one is missing,
Calling each by his name.
Lift up your eyes up on high,
His glory has come to you now.
Have you not understood
From the beginning?

Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The Lord everlasting, our God
Is creator of all, to the end of the earth
Listen, listen.
Track Name: They'll Know
Oooooo ... oooooo ...
By this all men shall know that you are Mine!

We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord,
We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord,
And we pray that all unity may one day be restored,
And they'll know we are Christians by our love!

We will walk with each other,
We will walk hand in hand
We will walk with each other,
We will walk hand in hand
And together we'll spread the news
That God is in our land
And they'll know we are Christians by our love!

(Instrumental)

Sing our souls to the heavens
For the love showered down,
Raising up a holy nation
And a people to Your own
Chosen only for Your glory,
Chosen by Your righteous light,
And they'll know we are Christians by our love!
By our love ...
Track Name: Wake Me When the World's Over
I'm not awake yet, for the day began long ago
There's time for things to come,
Why worry when we're so young?
I'm not awake yet, why trouble me with your cares?
I'll gain my strength and find
A way to satisfy my needs.
Relax, put your mind at rest,
See, all we have is good!
Don't bind your lives with selfish plans,
Be strong, be wise, be free, la la la la ...

You're not awake yet, though the day's about to end,
Time's running out for things to come,
Do you worry you're never so young?
Are you awake yet, avoid the test and lose the rest
You thought was yours today,
Though you can't sleep for eternity ...
Relax, put your mind at rest,
See, all we have is good!
Don't bind your lives with selfish plans,
Be strong, be wise, be free!
He's strong, He's wise, He's free!
Track Name: Lost/God Galling
Lost (Instrumental)

God Calling

What's that sound, that melodic flow,
Hypnotizing me to a silent glow?
The song of a loved one, mostly a friend,
If only to hear it again and again ...

Music to my ears, it creates such a feeling
A burning sensation with the power of healing.
It pierces my heart, but joy has no pain,
If only to feel it again and again ...
Again and again, again ...

(Instrumental)

Is it old wind with his wisdom and strength,
Whispering importance of life and content?
Revisited call from my memory within,
If only to hear it again and again and again ...

It's deep and it drums like a clear waterfall,
The voice that I hear from the Lord God of all,
For should I choose silence and never in vain?
Perhaps I will hear him again and again

Thank you God, Praise you Jesus, Praise the Lord ...
Track Name: Beloved of God
In the beginning was the Word
And the Word was with God.
And the Word, He was God,
He was with God
In the beginning.

Through Him all
Things were made,
Without him nothing
Has ben made

In Him was life and that
Life was the light of man,
He was the light of man

The light shines in the darkness but
The darkness has not understood.
The light shines in the darkness but
The darkness has not understood.

(Instrumentsl)

The light shines in the darkness but
The darkness has not understood.

In the beginning was the Word
And the Word was with God.
And the Word, He was God,
He was with God
In the beginning.
Track Name: Jesus Es Dios
Jesus Es Dios, Jesus Es Dios.
Jesus Is Lord, Jesus Is Lord.
