Among my favorite Biblical verses is that of Deuteronomy 31:6 stating one of God’s sweetest promises to us.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.

Going back to this spiritual line time and again and especially during life’s challenges is truly uplifting. The power that comes from it is certain and firm. And, it attests to the fact that nothing is impossible with God if we believe in Him.

Although we know God would always be true to His promises, He sure longs to hear us calling out on Him. Speaking of such, here is a feel-good spiritual song that would certainly make God smile. The tune allows us to draw closer to His side and long for Him not only in times of need but in each moment of our life.

Entitled “Do Lord,” this old-time spiritual is such an enjoyable song to sing. While its melody sounds more like being a kid song, it’s a perfect hymn for adults too. Featured in the video below is country legend Johnny Cash’s vocals.

Johnny Cash’s “Do Lord” Cover

One of the most influential singers in the 1950’s, Cash pursued a music career for a primary purpose. That is to record songs that centered on Christ. Accordingly, most of his early recordings were dominated by gospel music. The Man in Blackhas recorded countless gospel songs including Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,” “It Was Jesus,” “God is Not Dead,” “Personal Jesus,” and many more.

He also made a cover of “Do Lord,” a song that was first recorded in 1925 by The Garner Bros. Cash’s version was included on his 2004 album My Mother’s Hymn Book. The collection includes several traditional Christian hymns that Cash learned from his mother growing up. “Do Lord” was written by Vernie O. Fossett.

The Lyrics

Do Lord, oh, do Lord, oh, do remember me (3x)

Way beyond the blue.

I’ve got a home in glory land that outshines the sun (3x)

Way beyond the blue.

Do Lord, oh, do Lord, oh, do remember me (3x)

Way beyond the blue.

I took Jesus as my savior, You take him too (3x)

Way beyond the blue.

Do Lord, oh, do Lord, oh, do remember me (3x)

Way beyond the blue.
