My Shepherd

My Shepherd

Words by the King David
Composition by Kevin Bond
Performed by the Edwin Hawkins Music and Arts Mass Choir 1990


The Lord is my shepherd
And I shall not want
He makes me lie down in green pastures
And He leadeth me on
He restoreth my soul, He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
For His names sake
For He is my God

Yea thou I walk through
The valley of the shadows of death
I will fear no evil
For thou are my Lord
His goodness and His mercy shall follow me all the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord

And surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
Goodness and mercy shall follow me
Goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life!

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.


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

“A Brand New Touch” by Lanny Wolfe



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


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.


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.

What Is This?

“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?

If Heaven Never Was Promised

Gospel Lyrics for April 2016

If heaven never was promised to me
Neither God’s promise to live eternally
It’s been worth just having the Lord in my life
Living in a world of darkness
He brought me the light.

If there were never any streets of gold
Neither a land where we’ll never grow old
It’s been worth just having the Lord in my life
Living in a world of darkness
He brought me the light.

Top Twenty Gospel Songs

This is for all you Gospel music enthusiasts. We all have our favorites. Probably not one of us would choose exactly the same titles for each of our top 20 lists

But these are my favorites; and it was really difficult choosing only 20! These are the songs that have spoken the loudest and strongest to me though my life. Some of them are older, heard them when I was a kid. Others are more recent.

I tried to select the ones that didn’t just make me tap my feet, or have fantastic vocals and harmony. These 20 indeed have all that along with great musical composition; but out of all of the thousands of songs to choose from I wanted these to be the ones that carry great weight and importance, a message of the gospel.

This is NOT a list of what I think is the greatest gospel songs if all time; it is merely MY favorites.

So while this list may or may not contain your known favorites, I dare you to try these out if you haven’t already. You might just have to include a new one or two in your top 20 list!
