Conway Twitty Talks About “The Big Man Above” 1

Conway Twitty is not just an artist who only sings one genre. If you only think that he’s just a sweet romantic guy who attracts women with his love songs, think again, he can also channel his vocal prowess through some of his country gospel songs.

“The Big Man Above” is just one of Twitty’s gospel music. In this song, he shares lessons about life and most of all about God whom he refers to as ‘the big man above‘.

Of God, and of being a Christian…

Many people, probably even many Christians, think God’s love is unconditional. And insofar as God extends his love to all people without distinction, it is true. But many have bought into the sentimental notion of unconditional love evidenced in the old popular song,

“Though it makes him sad to see the way we live, he’ll always say, ‘I forgive’.”

Knowing the God of love can help to make us more loving and giving persons. Not only will getting to know Him more intimately cause us to become more like Him but resting securely in the assurance that He loves us will keep us from making demands of others and free us to reach out unselfishly and minister to them for their benefit alone. It is vitally important that we understand how much God loves us.

1 John 4:8,16 – God Is Love

One of our greatest needs as human beings is to be loved. We all need love. We need to know that we are important to somebody, that somebody truly cares about us, wants us, and accepts us unconditionally. When we doubt that we are loved, we may develop unacceptable behavior patterns to compensate for it.

The good news from God’s Word is that somebody does. To know Him is to find release from the crippling effects of feeling unloved. Twice the Apostle John categorically stated that God is love (1 John 4:8,16).

Love is one of the warmest words in the English language, and that God is love is one of the most sublime, uplifting, and reassuring truths known to mankind. Love is His nature. It is not merely a friendly attitude He projects. It is the essence of His being. He is always going to act toward us in love because He cannot do otherwise. Love is the way He is.

Here are the lyrics of this country gospel by Conway Twitty and try to sing it.

Sometimes in life, we ought to think twice
About the people that we step on
Better show our worthwhile here on earth
For soon the chance is gone

Don’t gossip about your neighbor
We gotta show more love
One of these days we’re gonna stand
Before that big man above

I gotta help your neighbor show more love
Lend a hand, don’t push and shove
One of these days we’re gonna stand
Before that big man above

Life is but a vapor
It’s here and then it’s gone
What we build in heaven
Will be there from now on

But things we gather here on earth
Will soon decay and rust
One of these days we’re gonna stand
Before that big man above

Gotta help your neighbor show more love
Lend a hand, don’t push and shove
One of these days we’re gonna stand
Before that big man above
One of these days we’re gonna stand
Before that big man above
