Feeling Blue? Healing with Powerful Southern Gospel Music Lyrics

Whether reading or listening, Southern Gospel music lyrics have the focus and the message that grounds you in an attitude of gratitude and humility, if you are a Christian or not.

All genres of popular music today, one of the original is more authentically black gospel and southern gospel music. The lyrics of gospel music is one of the most sought after items over the Internet, and for good reason. They uprising. They pick you up.

Let’s look at two of the most popular and see what gospel songs.

Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace is perhaps one of the most famous and popular American songs, well beyond the gospel category. These are the first words:

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me …. I was lost, but now am found, was blind but now I see.

In addition to the music itself, which sends shivers down the spine of the first notes, the lyrics speak of a universal state. All of us on several occasions, they feel lost and unworthy, blind and hopeless. So the words of this song brings a powerful message of happiness we find in our path, our purpose.

Beulah Land

This song is one of my favorites. It’s so short, but it speaks of the longing for a house we all feel: a place that no longer require our separations and sorrows of this world:

I’m a little homesick for a country you’ve never been before. No sad goodbyes spoken for time will not matter anymore.

This song is an excellent example of how the universal themes of southern gospel are outside the limits of flipping Bible Jesus saved me politics, and speaking to the human condition in a timeless way. Beulah Land closes with these startling words:

Now I’m looking across the river where my faith will end in sight. There are a couple of days to work. Then I will take my heavenly flight.

Cure The Blues now

How ironic that another great tradition of Southern music is the blues and this phrase has entered our language to denote ‘being down. If you think this is perhaps logical that the experience of slavery to head the Afro-American 19th century 20th century – still distinct and oppressed for much of this century too – to develop two great music traditions that denote the depressed condition (the Blues), and provide the antidote (Gospel Music).

Also the pump with gospel music – you can listen online, or one of my favorites is to print the lyrics of my favorite songs. Once you’re back, it feels good, and all jazzed, then it’s time to listen to the third great black southern music tradition, Jazz. But that’s another story.
