Billy Preston's "thats the way God planned it"

From the 1969 album of the same title. Amen Billy. God planned it and we should always follow God’s plan and God’s way. And he got his praise in too.

Why can’t we be humble
Like the good Lord said?
He promised to exalt us
But low is the way

How man be so greedy
When there’s so much left?
All things are God given
And they all have been blessed

That’s the way God planned it
That’s the way God wants it to be

Let not your heart be troubled
Let mourning, sobbing cease
Learn how to help each one another
And live in perfect peace

If we’d just be humble
Like the good Lord said
He promised to exalt us
But low is the way

That’s the way God planned it
That’s the way God wants it to be

I hope you get this message
When you won’t others will
You don’t understand me
But I love you still

That’s the way God planned it
That’s the way God wants it to be

  1. This is a nice, simple straightforward song. If we could just follow God’s plans for us we’d be allright! But it’s hard to wait on the Lord to exalts us. Billy Preston is on point. I’m going to have to start searching for his music, because I have nothing in my collection from him!
