Shining Down On Me

(lyrics Karl Allison/music Alvin Allison)

 

 

Even though I hurt You and itís been so many times,

I always come back laughing Ďcos Your love replaces mine.

I canít believe it, how You love me

How You always seem to care

And Iím glad to see Your love still

Shining down on me.

 

Setting dizzy limits - well, Iím reaching for the sky -

But I always seem to falter when I wave this world goodbye.

Hello, I missed you - now I leave you

And I wonít be back again

And Iím glad to see your love still

Shining down on me.

 

Holding on forever to a friendship that Iíve found

Will always hold me steady while my head is spinning round and round

About me - I can feel You

And I trust that youíll be there

And Iím glad to see Your love still

Shining down on me.

 

Quickly do I wander form the path You set for me,

So ready to abandon what Iím certain I must be with You to guide me

Can I follow ?

Can I let my feelings show ?

And Iím so glad to see Your love still

Shining down on me.

 

Never hold against me all the things that people say,

You know they only want to show You that I go my own way

But theyíre lying !

I am trying

To do as You want me to

And Iím glad to see Your love still

Shining down on me.
