“And lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.”

- Matthew 28:30

Listening to Stevie Wonder, Praise God

Dear Church, have you ever wondered how it would sound if you turned some of the lyrics of songs around and inserted our God into the song? I sometimes find myself doing that to many contemporary songs that can so be so spiritual to me.

I recently did this one-day while listening to a masterpiece record, crafted by the gifted composer, songwriter, and prolific singer, Stevie Wonder. entitled, “As,” with the main stanza proclaiming, “I will be loving you always.”

When you have an opportunity to relax, please listen as if this record is being your message from our almighty God, whom we love and cherish loving.

Here are some of the lyrics from this masterpiece, which you can sing like me to the heavens above.

As by Stevie Wonder

As around the sun the earth knows she's revolving

And the rosebuds know to bloom in early May

Just as hate knows love's the cure

You can rest your mind assure

That I'll be loving you always

Just as time knew to move on since the beginning

And the seasons know exactly when to change

Just as kindness knows no shame

Know through all your joy and pain

That I'll be loving you always
