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 I just looked through my collection & can't find it, I also did a web search but only turned up this song book...
Happy Trails, Bluelew
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.
...choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve...
But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."
Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
