It makes me happy just to sing about you

Post by Guest » Wed Nov 21, 2012 3:18 pm

I am looking for the lyrics to a song I heard years ago. It was sung by a group from Ky. The chorus was
"Cause I love you , Jesus and I love your name
And a long time ago, I'm glad you came
Let others go on and do what they want to do
But it makes me happy, just to sing about you"
I don't remember any of the verses. I really would appreciate your help.

LORD TO SING ABOUT YOU

THE WORLD WAS THIS WAY BEFORE I CAME LONG
AND IT MAY NOT GET BETTER BY THE TIME THAT I'M GONE.
BUT IF I HAVE A PART WHILE I'M PASSING THROUGH
HELP ME SMILE FROM MY HEART LORD AND SING ABOUT YOU.

I'VE TASTED SOME TEARDROPS A LITTLE HEARTACHE AND PAIN.
AND I'VE REACHED FOR RAINBOWS BUT ONLY IN VAIN.
LIFE WAS SO EMPTY SO LONELY AND BLUE
TILL YOU GAVE ME A SONG LORD TO SING ABOUT YOU.

CHORUS

CAUSE I LOVE YOU JESUS AND I LOVE YOUR NAME
AND A LONG TIME AGO I'M GLAD YOU CAME.
LET OTHERS GO ON DO WHAT THEY WANT TO DO
BUT IT MAKES ME HAPPY LORD TO SING ABOUT YOU.

Do you know the name of the group? I know that it is fairly old and I have never heard anyone perform this other than a few that sang it in my church 30+ years ago. I have tried finding this song on youtube, but it just does not show up anywhere with anyone singing it. It is a pretty song with quite a message and really deserves some updated, modern love and attention, I'm sure, but would still enjoy hearing it again. Thanks for posting the lyrics and for any additional help that can be provided. God bless!
