Hathaway, Donny - Thank You Master (For My Soul) Lyrics




Thank You, Master, for my soul
Thank You, Master, for my soul
You gave me food to eat, you kept shoes on my feet
& You kept me
Lord, I know (I) haven't been so good this week
But You continue to Bless me
& I just want to take time to thank You, for my soul

Thank You, Master, thank Ya for my soul
Lord, thank Ya, thank Ya, Master, thank Ya for my soul
'cause you didn't have to hear my moanin',
Lord, You didn't have to hear my groanin'
But You kept me, yeah
You put shoes on my feet, you kept food for me to eat, yeah
& Lord, how You Blessed me
But most of all, thank Ya, Master, for my soul
Thank You, thank You

That's alright!

Wooooooooo-hoo!
Thank You, Master, Lord, thank You for my soul
Thank You for my hands, thank You for my feet
Thank You, Lord, thank You for my mind
Thank You for my soul
Lord, I know I haven't been so good this week, God
But You kept me
You didn't have to hear my moanin',
You didn't have to hear my groanin', hey-hey
But Lord, You Blessed me
& Lord, I want to thank You
I just got to say "much obliged" to You, Master
'cause the walls of my room was not the walls of my grave
My bed was not my cooling board (y'all don't know what I'm talkin' 'bout)
My sheet (my sheet) was not my wine (was not my wining sheet)
& I want to say thank Ya, thank You

    Even though his death has been ruled suicide; he made some beautiful heart felt songs to God Jesus The Most High! Jesus please help us as a people especially the saved believers to be more transparent about what we are going through and have gone through! I am a believer and I still have dealt with suicidal thoughts in the past but to You Jesus be praised You delivered me out of that dark pit but people need to hear our stories and testimonies! Christians are not people who have never had imperfections but we are people Who have accepted The One Who is Perfect! Thank God for Mr. Donny Hathaway! I would like to have met him.
    -Jesus loves ALL ✌

    I really don't believe he committed suicide. His Unsung special made me think there was more to his death than what the media reported.

  38. Todd Tollfree

    Donny's Voice made it beautiful to STRUGGLE!....

  39. Carla Taylor

    From the first note, Donny was going to kill it.

  40. DeWitt Thomas

    Donny, my spiritual father, you taught me love, how to be free , when I was in a dark place, God sent your music to me, I won't ever forget that . I try to do things that would make you proud, I know you can still hear me R.I.P. to a hero of soul music, and a great mind.

  41. RS S

    As a singer,I have drawn much of my inspiration from artists of my parents' generation, such as Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, etc. It's hard for me to even sing a lot of their music without crying, because they TRULY FELT the messages they sent, and that love flowed through their music. It also makes me cry when I think of how Donny took his own life, not realizing what a great impact he had on the world and even future generations. I was a little kid when he died, but I still remember how upset my mom was and many others. PLEASE, if you suffer from depression, seek help. When you take your life, you DO affect others around you.

  42. SLOW JAM NETWORK I AM THE SLOW JAM GODDESS

    Ive listened to his music often reflecting on my childhood. Remembering both the good and bad times of growing up and enjoying the great music my elders brought to my soul. What a pleasure to enjoy this classic.

  43. Malete Lebo

    Where can one get Donny's live performances with visuals...

  44. BLACK MAMBA2

    Amazing

  45. fimani12

    The standard of Black masculinity. They tried to buy Donny, and when he wouldn't sell out, they murdered him. He was a man to the end! Thank you Lord for his soul and strength!

  46. william tilton

    why...!?...

  47. Asia Bk

    AMEN still truly a message of peace, love, and Blessings -Praise Thank-you Brother with Love from us All.

  48. Roseanna Vitro

    How in the world do 54 people give this a thumbs down? Just goes to show what a totally insane world we live in. This is a voice and spirit blessed by God- if there ever was one..What a gift. Is it compositionally a "Lush Life" or "Rhapsody in Blue"? no...it's just down home deep gospel...pure...a shout out of gratitude to the almighty spirit.. Beautiful Donny Hathaway..thanks Mel Goot for turning me on to this...

  49. connor casier

  70. Sergey

    жаль что умер еще много мог спеть хороших песен, голос уникально красивый!

  71. Loveystar78 cloud

    The only way ware going to make as a human race is to have the Lord deeply anchored in our soul. The Holy Spirit is the only thong that can hold us down when life gets crazy. Thank God Donnie knew that. A lot of artists are making more money than he ever did, but they're doing at the expense of their souls. What would it profit a man to gain the world and lose his soul?

    ChristChrysalisInMahanaim

    Amen to that!

  72. God Sun

    I love Danny.
