Short stories made into song lyrics to sing to the rhythm as their specified song. Most people are familiar with these popular hits!

“Killing Me Softly” has always been one of my favorite songs to sing along with. It has such a beautiful sounding melody. And now, I can sing this favorite to my own song lyrics, below, which is a lyrical poem about our Savior, Jesus Christ!

Killing Me Softly- Roberta Flack

God Loves Me

Kingdom of Heaven


Giving my sins to my Savior

Nailing His hands on the cross

Watching Him carry all my wrongs

Watching Him carry all my wrongs

Making Him bleed from my dark sins

Watching Him carry all my wrongs


He chose to take on my sins

I had no doubt He would

And, so I came to love him

To worship all I could

Though, at no fault, he bled on

With kindness in His eyes



Giving my sins to my Savior

Nailing His hands on the cross

Watching Him carry all my wrongs

Watching Him carry all my wrongs

Making Him bleed from my dark sins

Watching Him carry all my wrongs


I knelt down praying in fervor

Astonished by such grace

Then, I felt God’s sweet presence

I was in the right place

He blessed me in His mercy

I knew I would live on



Giving my sins to my Savior

Nailing His hands on the cross

Watching Him carry all my wrongs

Watching Him carry all my wrongs

Making Him bleed from my dark sins

Watching Him carry all my wrongs


It was like He had known me

From a long time before

This is when joy ran through me

It shook my very core

He had been with me always

Closer than I knew



Giving my sins to my Savior

Nailing His hands on the cross

Watching Him carry all my wrongs

Watching Him carry all my wrongs

Making Him bleed from my dark sins

Watching Him carry all my wrongs

~

Kingdom of Heaven

      Such a nice touch to a secular song. I saw Roberta Flack sing this song so many years ago. Your words and her melody bring back memories.

      Yes, Killing Me Softly is such a beautiful melody, as is Roberta Flack’s voice.

      Billy,

      Yes..lol..He loves You more than we can ever comprehend! Yes, He keeps you through the night. Not saying it’s not a “rough-go”, at times, (cuz, ya; it is); but, He’s got your back. Amen Jesus!

      Very nice work, Tamara! Jesus must love me; there is no other explanation how I've managed to remain alive this long, and have so many bounties.
