Elvis decided to record this one for his 1967 gospel album entitled "How Great Thou Art".

If The Lord Wasnt Walking By My Side  Lyrics

I don't know just what I'd do - If the Lord wasn't walking by my side


When I was drifting - (when I was drifting on the sea of a despair)
And I was wandering (I was wandering if Jehovah's up there)
When Jesus found me, (Jesus found me in my sinful life)
He heard me praying (he heard me praying on my knees at night)
Now I'm singing (Now I'm singing this happy song)
Because I'm happy (because I'm happy as I go along)
And I don't know (I don't know)- just what I'd do
If the Lord wasn't walking by my side

What would I do when a tear fills my eyes
What would I do when it's my time to die
Well I'd be lonely, discouraged - Burdened on the way
If the Lord wasn't walking by my side every day

I'd be so friendless (I'd be friendless all alone and blue)
And I'd be helpless (I'd be helpless, wouldn't know what to do)
And I don't know (I don't know) just what I'd do
If the Lord wasn't walking by my side

I'd be so friendless (I'd be friendless all alone and blue)
And I'd be helpless (I'd be helpless, wouldn't know what to do)
And I don't know (I don't know) just what I'd do
If the Lord wasn't walking by my side

What would I do when a tear fills my eyes What would I do when it's my time to die Well I'd be lonely, discouraged - Burdened on the way If the Lord wasn't walking by my side every day

I'd be so friendless (I'd be friendless all alone and blue)
And I'd be helpless (I'd be helpless, wouldn't know what to do)
And I don't know (I don't know) just what I'd do
If the Lord wasn't walking by my side every day

If the Lord (wasn't walking) - wasn't walking by my side
