"I then shall live"

This entry is my prayer for the upcoming days of the Inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama. It was sung today at First Congregational United Church of Christ.
by a guest soloist, and I was deeply moved.



I continue to try to share things that have helped me, and that I hope will help to bring understanding. This song helped me.

The lyrics are by Gloria Gaither, written in 1981.

The added lyrics at the bottom are a nice addition - " I know my name is clear before my father, I am his child and I am not afraid" - very uplifting, thanks for adding

That was great! Wonderful lyrics... they seem so appropriate for the moment, it's funny to think that they were written back in '81.

Thanks for posting!
