Preston, Billy - That's The Way God Planned It Lyrics

Why can't we be humble
Like the good Lord say?
He promised to exalt us
But love is the way

How men 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
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 to help one another
And live in perfect peace

If we'd just be humble
Like the good Lord say, yeah
He promised to exalt us
But love is the way

That's the way God planned it
That's the way God wants it to be
You better believe me
(That's the way God planned it)
(That's the way God wants it to be)

I hope you get this message
Where you won't, others will
You don't understand me
But I'll love you still

That's the way God planned it
That's the way God wants it to be
Yeah, yeah, yeah
(That's the way God planned it)
That's the way God wants it to be
You better believe me

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

  22. BeeUndercover

    That audience sucks! Germans!!! :P

  23. Dorothy Mays-Pitts

    Its so unfortunate that far to many talented folks gay lifestyles and perverted misbehavior destroy their images. Billy held a Mexican boy in his home against his will and faced charges before he died. PItts. He was one of James Cleveland. Turnouts. If young boys whom R now men would talk there would be many many gay pastors to be called out or go to jail for abuses of boys. PItts. There R a large number of gay ministers hiding behind church robes and songs. DPitts

  24. Tom Rugo

    This is music....
