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

​@Jesse Perkins Hi Jesse, I am a believer and I tried to encourage Jacob as well. Told him about how much reading the Word helps and also the online bible gateway site who have audio bibles - KJV, Amplified etc. - and you can just listen - like being read the Word. This has been a blessing to me often.

There are a lot of christians now that call themselves christians but do not believe the bible is the inherent Word of God. And yet they open churches and run them using the Holy Bible / Gods Word. Their arrogance is very disconcerting. I think what is happening and these sort of wolves know there are a lot of souls out there lost, and searching - the souls that Christ came to set free - but instead of being real and telling the truth - they just entertain them and give them only dessert a warm and fuzzy feeling. And look like good guys while they fill their pews and ultimately the coffers.

These people should be writing their own book, but they could not even call it a bible - because the very word means the old and new testament. They know that people for centuries have believe in God and Jesus Christ and they are using that credibility for their personal gain.

And despite the fact that God is a man of mystery, and the bible is a very deep book which has many events which are unexplained or at least understood by us - a lot of its content is very clear about how God expects us to live, and behave. The fact that we are in a fallen world and some may have a harder time than others walking the walk - it does not mean that we are not to be constantly and earnestly desiring and attempting to do right and better. He evens says in our weakness he is strongest and when our faith falters, his stays true for us. He wants us to get back up on the horse - and to be strong and courageous.

And Jesse you know that each persons growth relationship with God and Jesus is personal, and God knows when we are being sincere or not.

Then there are those who have (what God's Word calls) a reprobate mind. I would think that someone who says that the bible is not God's inherent Word and then still uses God's very Word to build a church must have a reprobate mind. Otherwise their conscience would not allow them to use the bible in this way for their own gain.

I know I have gone on a lot here. I have had a difficult week and what my experience has been is being lead to scriptures that the Lord God if said once said over 1,000 times - Be strong and courageous - Its in Isaiah 41.8-10, Deuteronomy 31:6, again in Isaiah , Exodus 15:2, Nehemiah 8:10, Joshua 1:8-9 etc, etc. Lots of encouragement for tough times and battles right Jesse. He knew there were going to a lot of battles - and I am still learning how to walk in victory through them. Praise to our Lord God and His Son and our saviour Jesus Christ.

God Bless you and your loved one Jesse. It is such a treat and blessing to find so many christians listening and sharing under the beautiful music of Van the Man.

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" πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™β€β€β€β€
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.

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.

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.
