Default Gospel Song Lyrics

There's an old "Southern Gospel" song I remember from my childhood ("preachers' kid") that is entitled:

"In The Arms Of Sweet Deliverance"


I remember the first verse and chorus, (I'll be performing this as a Bluegrass number at a Bluegrass gathering on the 22nd), but I don't remember the rest.

Anyone have the full lyrics for this?

Soupy - This may be what you're looking for.

I can't vouch for the accuracy of these lyrics, but here ya go


Chorus) In the arms of sweet deliverance

Gonna lay my heavy burden down

And with my Lord I'll abide

When at last my traveling days are done

In that land somewhere beyond the sun

In the arms of sweet deliverance

In the arms of sweet deliverance I shall rest by and by


1)Troubles I've had much more than enough

Many a days my path gets roug

Many a day I wondered what to do

Then I talk to my God in prayer Shows me that he is right there

Whatsoever may come he sees me through.


2)I've read the book of how the Lord was there

To reign upon the good and the bad

But wise is the man that waits upon the Lord

When trials and sorrows multiply

I will not ask him the reason why

For sweet is mine that only heaven can afford.


Tom
