I'm Gettin' Ready for God

A friend of mine heard this song and asked if I was feeling okay!  Well, yes, I was...and I am...planning on being around for quite a while longer, although I guess we never really know.  This was just kind of a fun tune, not meant to be taken too seriously.  I do like the idea that "first we must learn to love ourselves and then that love spills out and touches everybody else...."

LAST NIGHT I HAD THE STRANGEST DREAM

I WROTE MOST OF THE SONG YOU’RE GONNA HEAR IN MY SLEEP

THE MESSAGE WAS CRYSTAL CLEAR

AND THE MELODY CAME FROM A PLACE IN ME

MYSTERIOUS AND YET SO REAL…AND IT GOES LIKE THIS….

I’M SHININ’ UP MY SUNDAY SHOES (I’M GETTIN’ READY FOR GOD)

I’M PAYIN’ UP MY EARTHLY DUES (I’M GETTIN’ READY FOR GOD)

THE PATH OF FAITH IS WHAT I CHOOSE (I’M GETTIN’ READY FOR GOD)

AND I KNOW….WHERE TO GO…SPIRIT TELLS ME SO

YES I KNOW…. WHERE TO GO…SPIRIT TELLS ME SO

I’M THROWIN’ DOWN MY SWORD AND SHIELD

(I’M GETTIN’ READY FOR GOD)

A BANNER OF PEACE IS WHAT I WEILD (I’M GETTIN’ READY FOR GOD)

LIKE A WILLOW IN THE WIND I YEILD (I’M GETTIN’ READY FOR GOD)

AND I KNOW….WHERE TO GO…SPIRIT TELLS ME SO

YES I KNOW…. WHERE TO GO…SPIRIT TELLS ME SO

THE GREATEST GIFT…THAT WE CAN GIVE

IS THE LOVE THAT STARTS FROM WITHIN

FIRST WE MUST LEARN…TO LOVE OURSELVES

AND THEN THAT LOVE SPILLS OUT AND TOUCHES EV’RY BODY

YES, THAT LOVE SPILLS OUT AND TOUCHES EV’RY BODY ELSE (INSTRU)

THE GREATEST GIFT..THAT WE CAN GIVE

IS THE LOVE THAT STARTS FROM WITHIN

FIRST WE MUST LEARN…TO LOVE OURSELVES

AND THEN THAT LOVE SPILLS OUT AND TOUCHES EV’RY BODY—EV’RY BODY…(KEY CHANGE)

I’M OPENIN’ UP MY HEART TO LOVE (I’M GETTIN’ READY FOR GOD)

RECEIVING GIFTS FROM ALL AROUND (I’M GETTIN’ READY FOR GOD)

EACH STEP I TAKE IS ON SACRED GROUND (I’M GETTIN’ READY FOR GOD)

AND I KNOW….WHERE TO GO…SPIRIT TELLS ME SO

YES I KNOW…. WHERE TO GO…SPIRIT TELLS ME SO
