Some of My Favorite Song Lyrics

“God so Loved” (Jaci Velasquez)

God so loved the world
That He gave His one and only Son

That whosoever believes in Him
Will not perish by have everlasting life

“How Many Kings” (Downhere)

How many kings stepped down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?

How many gods have poured out their hearts,
To romance a world that has torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?
Only One did that for me.

“Such a Small King” (National Christmas Choir)

Such a small king, isn’t he? Such a small king.
Yet He will bring deliverance to me.
Prophets foretold His place in history.
Such a small King, such a small boy.

“How Can I Keep from Singing?” (Chris Tomlin)

How can I keep from singing Your praise?
How can I ever say enough?
How amazing is Your love!
How can I keep from shouting Your name?
I know I am loved by the King
And it makes my heart want to sing!

“I will Boast”

I will boast in the Lord my God
I will boast in the One who’s worthy
He’s worthy.

“All I Really Need” (Mark & Stephen Altrogge)

All I really need is Your grace
All I need to know is You are near me.
All I need is you.

All I really need is Your grace
All I need to know is You are for me.
All I need is you. All I need is you.

“Let Your Kingdom Come” (Bob Kauflin)

Let Your kingdom come, let Your will be done,
so that everyone might know Your Name!

Let Your song be heard, everywhere on earth,
'til Your sovereign work on earth is done.
Let Your kingdom come!

“On the Street where You Live” (Sung by Harry Connick, Jr.)

I have often walked down this street before
But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before.
All at once am I several stories high
Knowing I’m on the street where you live

And oh the towering feeling
Just to know somehow you are near.
The overpowering feeling
That any second you could suddenly appear!

“My Heart Belongs to Daddy” (Ella Fitzgerald)

Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy
So I simply couldn’t be bad.
My heart belongs to Daddy. Dad.
If you feel romantic, laddy,
Let me warn you right from the start
That my heart belongs to Daddy
And my daddy belongs to my heart!

“Let Me be a People (Plain Old Me)” (Jerry Lewis from the movie “Cinderfella”)

I keep statin' it,
No debatin' it,
I'm a happy breed,
So, therefore,

Let me be a people,
Says I sincerely,
I'm a fella who wouldn't give that for royalty,
I don't wanna be anyone else but plain old me.

“The One on the Right” (Johnny Cash)

… Now this should be a lesson,
If you plan to start a folk group,
Don’t go mixin’ politics with the folksongs of our land.
Just work on harmony and diction
Play your banjo well
And if you have political convictions
Keep ‘em to yourself.

If only people would take Johnny Cash's advice! :)

Oh my goodness, you said it, Sister! (:P

I'm doing pretty well. I've had a busy week, but I'm hangin' in there by God's grace!

I hope you have been doing well!
