Emotions, The - Blessed Lyrics




Mmmmm, yeah
Blessed that be the ties that bind
Whoaaa
Blessed that be the ties that bind
Whoaaa
Blessed that be the ties that bind

Do you ever take the time to concentrate your mind and listen, ooo yeah
Dancing to the music to your inner soul
Marvel at the beauty that nature holds
(Spread your wings to freedom)
Erasing from your mind all the doubt you see
Soaring like an eagle to your victory
Your loving heart will guide you, you, you

Blessed, blessed. Ahhhh, yeah, ohhh yeah, yeah
My soul feels good about the ties that bind me and you, and all mankind, together
Together
My soul feels good about the ties that bind me and you, and all mankind, together
Whoaaa
Blessed that be the ties that bind
Me and you, and all mankind. Whoaaa, ooooo

Glorify your love, place it far above all other, ooooo, yeah
Waken to the power of your mother's love
And precious memories (gather little children)
Pull your face in view to the rising sun
Flame of love is a gift to you
Burning to beat of your soul, alright

Blessed, blessed, ooooooo, yeah, yeah, oooooo, yeah, yeah

Blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed, oo, ooooo
Blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed, oo, ooooo

My soul feels good about the ties that bind me and you, and all mankind, together

  46. Ben Floyd

  47. Bryan Payton

    Maurice White was at his absolute best, with his song writing and production skills, during this time period of the '70's.  I love the vocals by The Emotions on this track.  The entire album, "Rejoice" is an excellent one!

    Jackie Condon

    Exactly! Maurice White is a musical genuis!!

  48. D'Artenya Granger

    Blessed - The Emotions

  49. Queen_Of_Domination

    Once again, I must admit the fact that those Boomers had better music, while today's music is utter bullshit.

    kncox81

    Queen_Of_Domination You are so right!! Our music from back in the day was "G" rated, compared to the music that they play on the air nowadays!!

    JULIA BURTON

    Queen_Of_Domination... We did have awesome music....

    John Lindsay Green

    Amen Queen, we sure did. I'm 61 and you're correct!

    A'Doris A

    Baby, say it again!!  I'm just blessed that I am one of those bloomers. I often tell my daughter that I WISH I could transport her back to the 70's.  There just was no other time like it.  And the music of those days..........well......you know......you can hear.

  50. 1goldbaby

    It all came from the CHURCH........

    Joni Jacques

    They were The Hutcheson Sunbeams before they were The Emotions. Straight Church!! I used to watch them on television on Sundays when they were just kids.

  51. Larry Washington

    No matter who covers this song it will always belong to the Emotions. No copy can come close to the genius of this original..........

    Tamara MT

    Jade is right behind them with their version

  52. Shirley Sanks

    HOW I LOVE THE EMOTIONS ME AND MY SISTER USE TO PLAY LIKE WE WE'RE THEM IT WAS 3 Of us And 3 of Them lol!!!! l sure do miss the Good old Days

  57. Tyna Childs

    More of the genius that IS Maurice White!!!! Before Envogue there was The Emotions!!!!!

    Lisa Robb

    I was looking at the reply on this page.. The song is call Blessed.. I Notice that you said something about Maurice White.. Is he from Ogden Utah?? I know I grew up with one that had the same name.. Thank you.

    Tamara MT

    Really?!!

    Sweet Sweetness

    You got that right 😆

  58. Silvia Rivas

    estupendas

  59. Tyjah Khan

    The thing about the emotions is the producers were spot on on who to give what song to....They knew Wanda was soulful & funky,Sheila was sweet and angelic & Jeanette's Deep gospel contralto was best used for ad libs and putting bottom in the harmonies.

    Rico B

    I agree. You can hear the genius of Maurice White all over this track!

    Calvin375

    Jeanette sings all parts in the harmonies. In "I Don't Want To Lose Your Love" she's in the middle harmony; in "Flowers" she sings the soprano harmony as well as in "Smile" and "Walking The Line". Jeanette has also lead "Flowers" in the absence of their sister Sheila who was on hiatus in '79-'80 and Pamela rejoined the group during that time.

    Nikita cavalli, say that sister.

  60. Tyjah Khan

    That can blend together in a seamless, flawless harmony

  61. Tyjah Khan

    Yeah they killed it...Resurrected it then killed it again... Only a few girl groups can claim three very distinctive & recognizable voices

  62. Lester Jordan
