Music and celebration are long-standing traditions of each day at DECATS. Scholars and mentors gather every morning and afternoon for assemblies that include song, fellowship, course presentations, and prayer.

In summer 2008, DECATS released a CD of many of the songs that Scholars, mentors, and even parents and siblings have come to love.

You can use the player on the left to hear the songs from the CD and the viewer below to read the lyrics and sing along!

Celebrate Medley

We're gonna have a celebration
Lift your voice and shout (shout!)
We're gonna have a celebration
Get on your feet, you gotta let it out (sang!)
We're gonna have a celebration
Holdin' nothin' in
1 - 2 - 3 - 4
Let us all begin to

Celebrate!
Celebrate this life we're livin'
Celebrate!
Celebrate this day we're given
Celebrate!
Me and you in this together
Don't hesitate
To let it all out and celebrate

I've got joy down in my heart
Deep, deep down in my heart (spell it!)
J-O-Y, down in my heart
Deep, deep down in my heart

Jesus put it there
and nothing can destroy it, 'stroy it, 'stroy it (huh!)
I've got joy down in my heart
Deep, deep down in my heart

Praise Him! Raise Him!

Everybody praise Him! Raise Him!
Let's get together and sing it! Shout it!
He's the reason that we're standin', jammin'
He's the reason that we put our hands together (count 5 - 6 - 7 - 8!)
Everything that breathes, come now and praise the Lord!

Cause whom the Son sets free
He or she is free indeed
Now I'm walkin' in the light of his love
And I'm gonna live forever in heaven above!

If You're Happy and You Know It

If you're happy and you know it, then clap your hands
If you're happy and you know it, then clap your hands

If you're happy and you know it, gonna let the whole world know it
If you're happy and you know it, then clap your hands

If you're happy and you know it, then stomp your feet
If you're happy and you know it, then stomp your feet
If you're happy and you know it, then your life'll surely show it
If you're happy and you know it, gonna let the whole world know it
If you're happy and you know it, then stomp your feet

If you're happy and you know it, then shout amen
If you're happy and you know it, then shout amen
If you're happy and you know it, then your life'll surely show it
If you're happy and you know it, gonna let the whole world know it
If you're happy and you know it, then shout amen

If you're happy and you know it, then do all three
If you're happy and you know it, then do all three
If you're happy and you know it, then your life'll surely show it
If you're happy and you know it, gonna let the whole world know it
If you're happy and you know it, then do all three

Brother - Friend

Well you're my brother, you're my friend
You're my beginning and my end
You're all around me when the world
Just turns and walks away

You're my sunshine on a cloudy day
You're the rain that washed my blues away
Well I can always count on you
Cause you're my brother (sista!)
You're my friend

Let Everything Praise the Lord

Let everything that breathes praise the Lord (praise the Lord!)
Let everything that breathes praise the Lord (praise the Lord!)
Join in creations choir and lift his praises higher
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Praise the Lord

Arise with the roosters and sing
Join the cows in a worship offering
Quack your praises with the ducks
Give thanks with the chickens, cluck-cluck-cluck

Refrain

Join the horses in a dance before the Lord
Stomp your feet with the sheep and praise him more
Bark your praises with dogs
Honk out your thanksgiving with the hogs

Refrain

Somedays

Here we are again
Enjoyin' life with my friends
Couldn't imagine being with anyone, doing anything, being someplace else
Cause look at what's up in me
Sometimes it's hard to see
Somethin' good's goin' on inside of me
It's down inside of you
And soon the world will see

Cause you plus me equals something good
Gonna change the world like we know we should
Though somedays it's hard to believe
Just look what's happenin' to you and me

Somedays are over the rainbow
Other days we get by
It's okay cause either way I know
We're walkin' this road in love

But there may be days when what's up is down
We reach up touch the sky but we find it's the ground
Well just keep on walkin', don't give up and we'll see
The journey's so much better when it's you plus me

Superhero Song

I may not fly like Superman
Drive a car like Batman
Swing like Spiderman
Into the sky
I may not be a superhero, but that don't mean my life's a zero

Cause I have the power to change the world
God put His life in me to change the world
And just you wait and see, I'll change the world
One day it's gonna be me who'll change the word

I may not look like Wonderwoman
Be as Flash, zoom!
Swim like Aquaman
Under the sea
I may not be a superhero, but that don't mean life's a zero

Cause I have the power to change the world
God put His life in me to change the world
And just you wait and see, I'll change the world
One day it's gonna be me who'll change the word

I may not float like a butterfly, or sting like a honeybee
But darkness gonna feel the power of my punch (pow!)
I'm greater than Muhammad Ali!

I may not sparkle like the Dazzler
Stretch like Elastigirl
Growl like the Hulk
When he turns green
I may not be a superhero, but that don't mean my life's a zero

Cause I have the power to change the world
God put His life in me to change the world
And just you wait and see, I'll change the world
One day it's gonna be me who'll change the word

Hand in the Plan

No matter what you do
No matter what you say
I know that God made me this way
He put His hand in the middle of my plan
Then He sent me out to play

So I'll keep doin' my best
And I'll pray that it's blessed
And one day the world will see
That God had His hand in the middle of my plan
And He's workin' it out for me

La la, la-la-la (His hand!)
La la, la-la la (My plan!)
La la, la-la-la (Understand?)
La la, la-la-la-la

Well you wanna talk about my life, listen to me
Get it all straight buddy, 1 - 2 - 3
Jesus died for me, now I live in the light
I want the world to know: Yo, I'm marked for life!

Be the Change

With this hand I reach out to you
I will stand by your side
You are my brother
You are my friend

We have shared in this together
Learned who we are and how to fly
We'll make a difference
If we try

With these hands we can change the world
And with our hearts we can love
And with our eyes we can see the need to
Be the change, bring the light, choose to love
Know when to fight for right

We Can Make a Difference Medley

I wanna dive deeper, underneath the depths of your love
Deeper, knowing your strength from above
Will see me through
Everyday, in every way
I just wanna give my life, my all, to you

Let your light shine through me
Let your light live in me
Use my hands in everything they do
May my life be an offering to you

We can make a difference in this world that we live in
We can make a difference if we try
We can make a difference with the hope that's inside
We can make a difference if we try

The Light of Love

Because God loves us, we can love each other
We come from different worlds, but our hearts are all the same
Just reach out and take my hand, what are you afraid of?
Come on and step into the light of love

Just open up your heart and start livin' in freedom
Take the fresh air in that we were meant to breathe
It will lift you up, if only you will let it
Livin' is easier in the light of love

(In the light of love) There's a bright tomorrow
(In the light of love) Takes away the sting of sorrow
(With love) We can see each other, as God see us all
(In the light of love) We can walk together
(In the light of love) We are sisters and brothers
So come and step into the light of love

Well that chip on your shoulder is a heavy load to bear
And that road you're a-walkin, it won't get you anywhere
Just step a little closer, you're almost to the place
Where you can feel the arms of love's sweet embrace
