The other week I was looking at different Elvis tribute artists singing gospel songs, and this gentleman stood out to me – Gordon Davis. It was so refreshing to hear the “live” music and back up singers, as most of the artists have canned music. He is so good looking, and has such nice mannerisms.
1. Help me
On Saturday night I was so sick that I lost the will to live, and this song sung by Gordon Davis kept running through my head. Especially the last verse and chorus. “Come down from Your golden throne to me…” It was like my spirit was crying out to God for help. Yesterday I wrote down the words of the song, and will probably start singing it when my throat gets better. Many years ago when I read Johnny Cash’s book, he said the song was written by Larry Gatlin, but when I was looking at the words sung by Elvis Presley, they list a whole lot of others writers. On the page where Kris Kristofferson sings it, they have it listed that Larry Gatlin wrote it. So there is some mix up going on somewhere.
The first time I heard this song was on a Jimmy Swaggart record. I think it was written by Dottie Rambo.
Bill Gaither has influenced a lot of people through this beautiful song that he wrote. Thanks Bill.
To me this is one of the greatest worship songs, and Jesus said that the Father wants people to worship Him. (John chapter 4)
5. Stand by me
Some words in this song really touch my heart: “When I do the best I can, and my friends misunderstand….” That has been one of my big problems. People don’t understand, and criticize.
I remember singing this song on the beach in East London back in the 70’s.
If you don’t know the words to this song – you have a hole in your soul.
Jesus said that the Holy Spirit will guide us into all truth. Many thanks to Gordon Davis and the lovely ladies singing with him, and thanks to the musicians too. God bless y’all.
