Gospel Radio

Everybody desperate
tryin’ to make ends meet
Work all day
made to pay
keepin’ their arses
off the street
Alas, their lives
are incomplete

But don’t it make you
want to free your soul ?
Upright from wrong
… Gospel Radio
I heard Natalie Cole
singing sweet and soulful
on the radio
… that Gospel Radio

Everybody hungry
the truth to know
Desperate
thirsting in spirit
seeking a safe place to go
As the anger
and resentment flow

But don’t it make you
want to deepen your soul ?
From weak to strong
… Gospel Radio
I heard Aretha Franklin
singing sweet and soulful
on the radio
… Gospel Radio

You know, the Man
he’s got his problems too
He will surely
take them out on you
In walks the Disciple
face all aglow
Beaming bright
tuned in tight
… to that Gospel Radio

Don’t it make you long
to sweeten your song ?
To sing along
… to that Gospel Radio
I heard Mahalia Jackson
singing sweet and soulful
strong and spiritual
on the radio
… Gospel Radio

You’ve been seeking
searching for the One
The Holy One
Hoping that
His Righteousness
might just
might just
might just come
That Kingdom Come
I heard a whisper
deep in the night
“Be watchful
for His eternal light”

Don’t it make you
want to rock n’ roll
… all night long ?
That Gospel Radio
I heard the Angels singing
sweet and soulful
beyond the radio
… Gospel Radio
