Mahalia Jackson - Amazing Grace/Joshua Fit The Battle Of Jericho/ How Great Thou Art/How I got over/His Eye Is On The Sparrow/You'll Never Walk Alone

Κλείνουν σήμερα 38 χρόνια από το θάνατο μιας από τις μεγαλύτερες τραγουδίστριες το 20ού αιώνα, της Βασίλισσας του Gospel, Mahalia Jackson στις 27 Φεβρουαρίου 1972.

Amazing Grace


Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun.


Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

Joshua Fit The Battle Of Jericho


Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

God knows that
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

Good morning sister Mary
Good morning brother John
Well I wanna stop and talk with you
Wanna tell you how I come along

I know you've heard about Joshua
He was the son of Nun
He never stopped his work until
Until the work was done

God knows that
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

You may talk about your men of Gideon
You may brag about your men of Saul
There's none like good old Joshua
At the battle of Jericho

Up to the walls of Jericho
He marched with spear in hand
Go blow them ram horns, Joshua cried
'Cause the battle is in my hands

God knows that
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

You may talk about your men of Gideon
You may brag about your king of Saul
There none like Joshua
At the battle of Jericho

They tell me, great God that Joshua’s spear
Was well nigh twelve feet long
And upon his hip was a double edged sword
And his mouth was a gospel horn

Yet bold and brave he stood
Salvation in his hand
Go blow them ram horns Joshua cried
'Cause the devil can't do you no harm

Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

Up to the walls of Jericho
He marched with spear in hand
Go blow them ram horns, Joshua cried
'Cause the battle is in my hands

Then the lamb ram sheep horns began to blow
The trumpets began to sound
Old Joshua shouted glory
And the walls came tumblin' down

God knows that
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

Down, down, down, down, down
Tumblin' down

How Great Thou Art



Oh, Lord, my God
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all, thy world thy hands have made
I see the stars and I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed

Then sings my soul
My Savior God to thee
How great thou art
How great thou art
(rpt 2 times)
***************

How I got over



How I got over
How I got over
You know my soul looks back and wonder
How I got over
(rpt)

Soon as I can see Jesus
The man that died for me
Man that bled and suffered
Hung on Calvary
I'm gonna thank him
For how he brought me
I'm gonna thank God
For how he taught me
Yes, thank my God for how he kept me
I'm gonna thank him 'cause He never left me
I'm gonna thank God for ol' time religion
I'm gonna thank Him for giving me a vision
I'm gon' join the Heavenly choir
And I'm a-sing and never get tired
I'm gonna sing somewhere 'round God's alter
And I'm a-shout all my troubles over
Lord, we got to thank you
Thank you for being so good to me
(chorus)

I'm gon' wear a di-garment
In that New Jerusalem
I'm gonna walk the streets of gold
In that homeland of the soul
I'm gonna view the hosts in white
That been traveling day and night
Coming up from every nation
On their way to the great coronation
Coming from the north, south, east, and west
On their way to a land of rest
Lord, we gonna join the heavenly choir
We gon' sing and never get tired
Lord, we gon' sing somewhere 'round your alter
And we gonna shout all our troubles over
Lord, we gotta thank you
Thank you for being so good to me

Hmmm, I wanna thank you, this morning
I wanna thank you, Lord, this morning
You know all, all night long
You kept your angels watching over me
And you told your angels this morning
You told your angels, Lord, this morning
You said, "Touch her, in my name"
You said, "Touch her, in my name"
And I rose, I rose this morning
Lord, I rose, I rose this morning
With the blood, blood running warm
All in my veins, Oh Lord
Lord, I feel, I feel like running
Lord, I feel, I feel like running
Lord, you know I feel, feel like running
Lord, Lord, I feel, I feel like running
Lord, I wanna thank you
Thank you, thank you for being
So good to me

His Eye Is On The Sparrow



Why should I feel discouraged,
Why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely
And long for Heav'n and home,
When Jesus is my portion?
My constant Friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

Refrain:
I sing because I'm happy,
I sing because I'm free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

Verse 2:
"Let not your heart be troubled,"
His tender word I hear,
And resting on His goodness,
I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path He leadeth
But one step I may see:
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

Whenever I am tempted,
Whenever clouds arise,
When songs give place to sighing,
When hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to Him,
From care He sets me free:
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He cares for me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He cares for me.

You'll Never Walk Alone



When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
For at the end of the storm
Is a golden ray
And the sweet silver song of a lark
Walk on through the storm
Walk on through the rain
Though your dream be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on with hope in your hope
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I started to get real money.
It gets down to choose a correct companion who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the income with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
