This week Jim Adams has prompted us with choosing a song pertaining to Endless | Eternity | Everlasting | Forever | Infinity | Omega for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday. I chose “Where No One Stands Alone” by Elvis Presley and Lisa Marie Presley.
When I started thinking about infinity and forever, I began wondering where I will go after my life on this earth is over. I certainly believe in a heaven, a place where we can spend eternity and be with our loved ones that have passed before us. I can’t say I’m a religious person, but I am very spiritual.
This thought took me to the King and his gospel efforts! Did you know that the only Grammy won by Elvis Presley was for his gospel albums. He received 14 Grammy nominations and won 3 for “How Great Thou Art”, “He Touched Me” and his live recording of “How Great Thou Art”. He also was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award in 1971.
Once I stood in the night With my head bowed low In the darkness as black as could be And my heart felt alone and I cried, "Oh Lord Don't hide your face from me" Like a king, I may live in a palace so tall With great riches to call my own But I don't know a thing In this whole wide world That's worse than being alone Hold my hand all the way, every hour, every day Come here to the great unknown Take my hand, let me stand Where no-one stands alone Take my hand, let me stand Where no-one stands alone Source: Musixmatch Songwriters: Mosie Lister
