I'm looking for the words to a medley I used to sing at Sunday school, can only remember some of the songs involved, but they are (not in correct order) :

Build your house upon the rock
I will make you fishers of men
This little light of mine

I will make you fishers of men,
fishers of men,
fishers of men,
I will make you fishers of men
If you'll follow me,
If you'll follow me,
if you'll follow me
I will make you fishers of men
if you'll follow me.

Hear Christ calling, come unto me
come unto me, come unto me
Hear Christ calling come unto me
I will give you rest.
I will give you rest, I will give you rest
Hear Christ calling, come unto me
I will give you rest.

This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine
This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine
This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine
let it shine, let it shine let it shine.

Hide it under a bushel, NO!
I'm going to let it shine . . .

Won't let Satan blow it out
I'm going to let it shine

let it shine till Jesus comes,
I'm going to let it shine

Here are two of the three, I hope it helps.
Was the other one about the foolish man and the wise man building their house on the sand and the rocks and the rain coming down?

Yes, it was, but there were only short bits of each song, and there were a lot more songs in the medley. It used to be called the Fruit Salad song, because it was a mixture. Maybe it was just an Australian thing.

I remember something similar to this, and I think we called it the Hash Chorus. From what I remember it goes like this:

When the roll is called up yonder
I'll be walkin on the King's highway
Tell me the old, old story (yeah)
I love it better every day

Hal-le-lu-----jah

I will make you fishers of me
if you only follow me
Hallelujah, what a Savior
I'm from sin set
You're from sin set
We're all from sin set free.

Hi all
I remember this song from years ago - but this is the version we used to sing - think there may be more verses that I have forgotten. We called it "The Fruit Salad Song".

The old old story it is ever new
The old old story Praise the Lord tis true
That Jesus died for me as well as you
I love the old old story

When the roll is called up yonder
I'll be walking in the King's highway
Tell me the old old story
I love Him better every day

Hallelujah

I will make you fishers of men
If you'll only follow me
Now none but Christ can satisfy
And there's no other Name for me

B-e-cau-ause

Every day with Jesus
Is sweeter than the day before
Every passing moment
I love Him more and more
Hallelujah
Jesus saves and keeps me
And He's the One I'm waiting for
Every day with Jesus
Is sweeter than the day before.

Mine mine mine mine
Jesus is mine
Mine when I'm weary
Mine when I'm dreary
Mine mine mine mine
Jesus is mine
Mine all the time
Oh yes He's mine

Can you wonder at the people being envious
When they see that we're as happy as can b-e-e-e
For the glory of the Lord is all around us
We're as happy as the birds
Upon the tree "¦ Tweet Tweet
Hallelujah Hallelujah
Hallelujah for my sins are all forg-i-i-ven
Very precious is Jesus
And my heart's a little Hallelujah he-ea-ven.

Anybody know any more verses?

My mother said it was sung to the tune of a song called "Old Black Joe."

Ok, here's some extra verses I remember

Bye and Bye we'll see the King
Bye and Bye we'll see the King
Bye and Bye we'll see the King
And crown Him Lord of all

And if we do not crown Him Lord of all
And if we do not crown Him Lord of all
And if we do not crown Him Lord of all
We do not crown Him Lord at all.

This was an old Medley we sang in Sunday School. It was called the Fruit Salad Chorus ... This is how I remember it.


He came to seek me, He came to save me, He went to Calvary all the way.
He died to save me, He lives to keep me, and He's coming back someday.
When the roll is called up yonder, I'll be walking on the King's highway,
Tell me the old, old story, I love it better every day "¦ Hall-le-lu-jah,
And I will make you fishers of men if you'll only follow Me,
For none but Christ can satisfy and there's no other name for me, because
Ev-'ry day with Jesus is sweeter than the day before.
Ev - 'ry passing moment, I love Him more and more "¦ Hall-le-lu-jah.
Jesus saves and keeps me and He's the one I'm waiting for,
Cause ev - 'ry day with Jesus is sweeter than the day before.
By and by we'll see the King, by and by we'll see the King,
By and by we'll see the King and crown Him Lord of all.
And crown Him Lord of all and crown Him Lord of all,
And crown Him Lord of all "¦ and crown Him Lord of all.
And if you do not crown Him Lord of all
And if you do not crown Him Lord of all
And if you do not crown Him Lord of all
You do not crown Him Lord at all.
