Jim Reeves How Long Has It Been Lyrics

Last updated: 03/13/2014 07:48:15 PM

How long has it been since you talked with the Lord
And told him your heart's hidden secrets
How long since you prayed how long since you stayed
On your knees till the light shone through
How long has it been since your mind felt at ease
How long since your heart knew no burden
Can you call him your friend how long has it been since you knew that he cared for you

How long has it been since you knelt by your bed and prayed to the Lord up in heaven
How long since you knew that he’d answer you
And would keep you the long night through
How long has it been since you woke with the dawn and felt this day is worth living
Can you call him your friend how long has it been since you knew that he cared for you

I grew up with country side music in my ears.
But talking of Jim Revees' music/songs, I classified them as country gossipel. They inspire me anytime I think I can't go on with life.
It sadden me that he leave this world too early but all the same, 'cause he said this world is not my home. He passed through.

Since my childhood my father brought me up with music, mainly Bing Crosby, but Gentleman Jim was another of his favourites, and still sounds as fresh today as it did before I became a Christian. Now I feel God's Spirit in all of his gospel songs.

I also grew up listening to his wonderful inspirational singing. I too have tried to emulate it over the years...and some say pretty well ha. I have the old LP's to transfer to the putter, but no time to do it. I did recently purchase them off Itunes which was easier.

I grew up admiring, and trying to emulate Gentleman Jim' smooth, wonderful voice...He's leaving this world so young was devistating to the Country Music World, and me personally...Yet today I have the majority of his songs recorded, and listen them them religiously...I can honestly say I've never tired of listening to this Icon...Jerry Wilson...
