I’m Healed

From the great Donald Lawrence, a song that reminds me very much of Karen Clark Sheard’s song “Heaven“.  This is pure D. Lawrence; great music.

My God Is Wonderful

A gem of a song from James Cleveland and his California choirs from the late 80’s.  I love this song, it just kinda grabs me…it’s so “singable”.  I always marvel at how much great music there still is to be posted…after almost 900 songs I still seem to uncover something of interest every day.

 

  1. My God is Wonderful Rev. James Cleveland and the Northern & Southern California Choirs of the G.M.W.A. 6:15

My God Is Wonderful
Words and Music by Rev. Quincy Fielding, Jr.

Chorus
My God is wonderful…
My God is wonderful
He saved my soul from sin…
He gave me life within
He made my joy complete
With Him eternally
My God is wonderful to me

Verse 1
He’s so loving
He’s so kind
He’s my Savior
And I’m glad He’s mine
When I was lost
Couldn’t find my way
He opened my eyes
Now I can say
My God is wonderful to me

Verse II
He healed the sick,
Raised the dead
Five thousand souls He led
When I was down to my last dime
The God I serve stepped in on time
My God is wonderful

Special chorus
My God is wonderful…
My God is wonderful
He saved my soul from sin
He saved my soul from sin
He saved my soul from sin
He saved my soul from sin
Saved (Saved)
Saved (Saved)
Saved (Saved)
Saved (Saved from sin)

He saved my soul from sin
He saved my soul from sin
He saved my soul from sin
He gave me peace within
He made my joy complete
With Him eternally
My God is wonderful to me

Lord, I Want To Know You

I stumbled across this great song this morning.  It looks like I TRIED to post it a few years ago, but that was before I understood the WordPress doesn’t like handling m4p files from Apple (they’re protected), so I had to re-record the song in an mp3 format just now to post it.  What I won’t do for my gospel blog posse!!  At any rate, I love the song and I hope you do too!

Come To Jesus

I usually don’t post really churchy/preachy songs along the lines of “Come To Jesus (Right Now)”, but the late Rev. James Moore is such a treasure, and the song is so good, I just couldn’t “hep mysef”.  So, without further ado, from Rev. James Moore in 1987, the height of his career before diabetes started to impact him, here is “Come To Jesus”.

You Changed My Life

Today’s song comes from an early album from Donnie Harper’s New Jersey Mass Choir.  I love the use of the tone bender on the keyboard.  A nice effect and it is a nice reminder of how these benders were used when they first appeared on keyboards in the mid 80’s.  The song has a little Caribbean feel to it as well.
