“In a Deep Sea Called Forget”

October 2, 2015

Tammy Renee Harris (tammylia@bspeedy.com, or on FB) is an outstanding Gospel Singer.

We met this past Sunday afternoon. I was preaching and she was singing at the 170th Annual Homecoming of a church I served a few years ago.

She sang a song that the songwriter literally gave to her mom; blew me away.

That song’s lyrics —

GOD TOOK AWAY MY YESTERDAYS

I

I ONCE WAS LOST AND LONELY MY HEART WAS FULL OF SIN.
BUT GOD LOOKED DOWN AND SAW ME AND HE DREW ME CLOSE TO HIM.
HE TOLD ME THAT HE LOVED ME AND HE BID ME TO COME IN.
THEN SAID IF YOU ARE SORRY I’LL WASH AWAY YOUR SINS.

II

GOD TOOK AWAY ME YESTERDAYS FAR AS EAST IS FROM THE WEST.
I DON’T HAVE YESTERDAYS BUT I DO HAVE PEACE AND REST.
THERE MAY BE NO TOMORROW FOR ME DOWN HERE BELOW.
BUT JESUS WAITS FOR ME UP THERE AND THAT’S ONE THING THAT I KNOW.

III

GOD TOOK AWAY ME YESTERDAYS FROM THEM I’LL NEVER RUN.
I CAN’T LIVE FOR TOMORROW FOR TOMORROW MAY NEVER COME.
BUT WHILE I’M HERE I’LL SERVE HIM FOR ME HE GAVE HIS SON.
AND SOON HE’S GOING TO CALL ME UP TO THAT HOME UP ABOVE.

CHORUS

GOD TOOK AWAY MY YESTERDAYS AND LEFT ME FREE FROM SIN.
AND IN THAT HOME OF GLORY HE’LL NEVER MENTION THEM.
IN A LAND FAR AWAY THEY’LL ALWAYS STAY
IN A DEEP SEA CALLED FORGET.
GOD TOOK AWAY MY YESTERDAYS THE MOMENT THAT WE MET.

— Let the church say Amen, and…WOW!
