Whenever God Shines His Light
Van Morrison Lyrics


Whenever God shines his light on me
Opens up my eyes so I can see
When I look up in the darkest night
And I know everything's going to be alright
In deep confusion, in great despair
When I reach out for him he is there
When I am lonely as I can be
And I know that God shines his light on me

Reach out for him (reach out for him), he'll be there (he'll be there)
With him your troubles (with him your troubles) you can share (you can share)
If you live (if you live), the life you love (the life you love)
You get the blessing (yeah) from above (from above)

Heals the sick and he heals the lame
Says you can do it too in Jesus' name
He'll lift you up and turn you around
And put your feet back (feet back) on higher ground

Reach out for him (reach out for him), he'll be there (he'll be there)
With him your troubles (with him your troubles) you can share (you can share)
Oh, you can use his higher power
Every day (every day) and any hour (any hour)
Heals the sick and heals the lame
And he says you can heal them too in Jesus' name

He lifts you up and turns you around
Puts your feet back (puts your feet back, puts your feet back) on higher ground

When
When he shines his light
Whenever God shines his light
On you
On you
He is the way
He is the truth
He is the light, hoo
Put your feet back, put your feet back, higher ground, put your feet back
Higher ground
Put your feet back, put your feet back, higher ground, put your feet back
On higher ground
Put your feet back, put your feet back, higher ground, put your feet back
On higher ground
Put your feet back, put your feet back, higher ground, put your feet back
On higher ground
Put your feet back, put your feet back, higher ground, put your feet back
Put your feet on higher ground
Put your feet back, put your feet back, higher ground, put your feet back
Back

Beyond Alpha

Booked her to the top restaurant table
But she said she didn't like the meal
I got her tickets for the opera
But she complained about the VIP seats
Gave her a million Euro
Said that it wasn't enough
I come when she's still fit and able
She's still too lazy to go out and work
No amount is enough for her
I feel the emptiness inside
It's the greed and everything she needs
But she'll never be satisfied
No simple rule you're missing
There's no such thing as a free lunch
Someone had to work a while and get it
And everything has got a price
Remember this one simple piece of advice
That everybody should know
Everything has got its price
You've got to reap just what you sow

I know you were not meaning to be so literal, because I believe there is lots of ways to praise God, certainly to honor Him, however I agree music is way up there. And there are more than a lot of us realize, such as: "Believe" by Brooks and Dunn, really nice video and;

Jeff Beck and Rod Stewart version of Curtis Mayfield "People Get Ready" - especially the one when they were young around the 1970's perhaps - its online-great video.

Then I was watching a video about Marc Cohn's inspiration for writing "Walking In Memphis", - well Al Green as you may know became a minister when he got older - and decided to use his talent to honor God. Well Marc Cohn goes into this little church one day in Memphis and its Al Greens church. As he tells the story, an older lady in the church asked him "are you a christian child" and that is why he included that line which answers "ma'am I am tonight".

Sometimes its good to go back and revisit some really good pieces of music.

God Bless and your loves as well.

"Whenever God Shines His Light" 🙏🙏🙏🙏❤❤❤❤
Whenever God shines his light on me
Opens up my eyes so I can see
When I look up in the darkest night
I know everything's going to be alright
In deep confusion, in great despair
When I reach out for him he is there
When I am lonely as I can be
I know that God shines his light on me
Reach out for him, he'll be there
With him your troubles you can share
If you live the life you love
You get the blessing from above
He heals the sick and heals the lame
Says you can do it too in Jesus name

He'll lift you up and turn you around
And put your feet back on higher ground

Reach out for him, he'll be there
With him your troubles you can share
You can use his higher power
In every day and any hour
He heals the sick and heals the lame
Says you can do it too in Jesus name

He'll lift you up and turn you around
And put your feet back on higher ground.

Wann auch immer Gott sein Licht auf mich gibt Songtext:

Wann auch immer Gott sein Licht auf mich gibt

Wann auch immer Gott sein Licht auf mich gibt
Öffnet meine Augen, so kann ich sehen
Wenn ich in der dunkelsten Nacht aufblicke
Ich weiß, dass alles dabei ist, ganz richtig zu sein
In der tiefen Verwirrung, in der großen Verzweiflung
Wenn ich für ihn ausstrecke, ist er dort
Wenn ich einsam bin, wie ich sein kann
Ich weiß, dass Gott sein Licht auf mich poliert

Strecken Sie für ihn aus, er wird dort sein
Mit ihm Ihre Schwierigkeiten können Sie sich teilen
Wenn Sie das Leben führen, lieben Sie
Sie bekommen das Segen von oben
Er heilt das kranke und heilt das lahme
Sagt, dass Sie es auch im Namen von Jesus tun können

Er wird Sie erheben und Sie umdrehen
Und gestellt Ihre Füße zurück auf den höheren Boden

Strecken Sie für ihn aus, er wird dort sein
Mit ihm Ihre Schwierigkeiten können Sie sich teilen
Sie können seine höhere Macht verwenden
An jedem Tag und jede Stunde
Er heilt das kranke und heilt das lahme
Sagt, dass Sie es auch im Namen von Jesus tun können

Er wird Sie erheben und Sie umdrehen
Und gestellt Ihre Füße zurück auf den höheren Boden.

So many Van songs have videos that I never even knew about.

Glad they're finally embracing the internet age and exposing the world to more of his music.

Yvonne Wilson

Pretty cool

Carol Weidig

I like this aspect of what is happening to show more of Van Morrison's Songs too. It is fun to travel into the past, right Emerzie Okarafor?

Kathleen Gleason

Van Morrison is the king of music sing about our salvation I love u Van

YerPope

+Emezie Okorafor A lot of the reason there are not videos is because Van, like so many artists of that era was ripped off badly by the record companies which left a really bad taste in his mouth for the business end of music making.

But then Van, like others took total control of his music distribution and he got back into the groove.
