Have you Heard - looking for lyrics

Post by tdotson1997 » Tue Jun 01, 2010 4:49 pm

Could someone help me with the lyrics for a southern gospel song titled "Have you Heard"? I believe it was sung by either the Freemans, Hinsons, or Paynes in the 80s. The chorus goes like this:

Have you heard about this God I know
He's got the situation in control
Have you heard He'll pardon you
And He'll walk with you until your journey's thru
And have you heard He'll heal you now
And loose those demons that'll hold you so bound
Before you give up
Oh, Listen Sir
Ask your brother, Have you Heard.

I loved singing it all the time in church years ago. Now that I have came back to God and am leading singing at our church, I want to share this song with the congregation but can't remember the second verse.

I think these are the words. I'm not sure about the last word in the 3rd line but I'm sure about the rest. I haven't heard this song for a few years, but this verse always rang in my heart. By the way, I can never remember the first verse. Wanna swap?


Israel stood on Jordan's strand
While the spies went out to search the land
They returned with grapes devine
There's milk and honey and it's so fine
But there's giant over there so big and tall
We look like grasshoppers walking "round so small
But Joshua said with godlike nerve
You bunch of cowards! Have you heard?

Thanks soooo much for that 2nd verse. I have hunted for about a year in every place I knew to look. Even asking christian friends at work that sing in church and stuff just trying any way to find these lyrics. Here's the 1st verse. Happy to oblige. Can't wait to share these lyrics thru song at church this weekend. I know it will be a blessing to the congregation.

The first verse goes like this:

You hear a voice throughout the land
You hear of trouble on every hand
You hear of crying
You hear of dying
Sometimes your vision may even get blurred
You hear of sickness, of pain an woe
You even cut your brother way down low
Before you give up, Oh listen Sir
Ask your brother, Have you Heard

It was originally done by The Freemans several years ago. There are YouTube videos where you can hear it by them and copy down the lyrics. I did it with a trio many years ago but can’t remember all of the words. Good luck and God bless!

Here’s a Freeman’s recording and
My best guess at the lyrics
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Svb07lM9Eik

You hear a voice throughout the land
You hear of trouble on every hand
You hear of crying. You hear of dying
Sometimes your vision may even get blurred
You hear of sickness; of pain and woe
You’d even cut your brother way down low
Before you give up Oh listen Sir
Ask your brother Have you Heard

Chorus
Oh have you heard about the God I know
He's got your situation in control
And have you heard He'll pardon you
And He'll walk with you until your journey's through
And have you heard He'll hear you now
And loose those demons that'll hold you so bound
He’s coming soon. Oh heed His word
Praise the Lord I’m glad I’ve heard

Well Israel stood on Jordan's sands
While the spies went out to search the land
When they returned with grapes divine
There's milk and honey and it's so fine
But the giants out there; so big and tall
While we like grasshoppers walk around so small
But Joshua with a godlike nerve said
You bunch of cowards! Have you heard?
