Gospel Lyrics for August 2018

I’ve Never Seen It

By Donald Lawrence

I was young, and now I’m old
Seen a lot of situations unfold
Been a lot of places
Met all kinds,
But there’s one thing that stays on my mind:
Out of all the things I’ve done,
all the places I’ve gone,
and the things I’ve seen

Chorus:
Said I never, seen the righteous forsaken (3x)
nor His seed begging for bread!

Bridge
You don’t have to worry ’bout a thing
If you’re holy and righteous

So We Learn

By Walter Hawkins

Verse 1
We learn from our mistakes
Each one a little more grace
And our faults we must face
And deal with the consequences of our actions
But somehow God makes the road we take
Work out for our good

V2
He’s a specialist in taking worthlessness
And building character while we blunder
And as he shows us a little more of ourselves
We cry out for more of His help
And He bestows us a little more grace
And so we learn.

V3
Line upon line, precept upon precept
We live and we learn and we grow and become
Through His plan we shall stand
Stripped of the old man
Soon we’ll be just like Him

Just like Him!

He’s Still Working On Me

March 2017 Gospel Lyrics

This beautiful, yet simple song was written by Joel Hemphill in 1980. It is often considered a “children’s song” because of the simplicity of the message; however that message is powerful to it’s core.

Chorus

He’s still working on me
To make me what I ought to be
It took Him just a week to make the moon and the stars
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars
How loving and patient He must be
He’s still working on me

“A Brand New Touch” by Lanny Wolfe 1977

7ed70b4f-da8f-4b2a-8227-c67a7c6115bb-1339-000001983c675b99_tmp

Chorus

Lord, You know I need a brand new touch
My strength from yesterday is gone;
But if You’ll give me Lord another touch,
I’ll have the strength to carry on
.

Verse

I thought the sun had come to stay,
but all to soon it went away;
And in it’s place the storm clouds came
and with the clouds there came the rain.

It rained so hard and oh so long
but midst the storm I felt alone;
It was Your touch that brought me through it all.
Without Your help I’d surely fall.

Bridge

Lord, You know how weak I really am,
even better than myself.
But with Your help I know I really can
Make it through the darkest night…
Everything’s ‘gonna be alright.

Gospel Lyrics January 2017

“What is This?”  A classic by brothers Edwin and Walter Hawkins

What is this
That I feel deep inside
And it keeps setting my soul on fire
Whatever it is it won’t let me hold my peace

What is this
Makes folk say I’m acting strange
What is this
Makes me wanna run on in Jesus’ name
Whatever it is it won’t let me hold my peace

It makes me love all my enemies
And it makes me love my friends
And it won’t let me be ashamed
To tell the world I’ve been born again

What is this
Makes me do right when I would do wrong
What is this
When I’m down low He gives me a song
Whatever it is
It won’t let me hold my peace

Whatever it is
This feeling I have
Whatever it is
Deep down inside of me
Whatever it is
It won’t let me hold my peace

What is This?
