Smallwood, Richard - I Will Sing Praises Lyrics




Lord, You are my light;
Lord, You are my joy.
You're my salvation
whom shall I fear?
I don't have to worry; I won't be afraid,
for in the time of trouble, You shall hide me,
hide me, You shall hide me, hide me.

He shall hide me in His tabernacle
He shall set me upon a rock of stone
He shall hide me in His tabernacle
He shall set me upon a rock of stone

[Sopranos:] I will sing praises, praises unto You
[Altos:] I will sing praises, praises unto You.
[Tenors:] I'll sing praises unto You

  7. rovel morris

    Maurette @ 4:45 made me laugh..not to mention Carolene at 4:58...I do that at times...I dont go all the way with modulating a song in rehearsal..but when the choir is singing..I stretch their voices and they better sing...lol

  8. esquire2K11

  12. alim3611

    This song reminds me of the competition we used have between the sopranos and the tenors in my church choir . We tenirs tried but the Sops always used to blow the house down , Glory to God

  21. La'Kendra Dozier

    @PrazHymn83 lol I didn even notice that was her until i read ya comment

  22. Dudu971

    The altos have the most difficult part... At least sopranos can trick a bit by using their natural falsetto, but glory be to God, RS&V never stop to impress me...

  23. John manaaho

    wow GLORY

  24. derrickbanes

    it amazes me that most of those members of Vision back then were what, late 20s to late 30s as opposed to a group like Hezekiah Walkers who usually has members in their early 20s or younger. But Vision went up that scale and made it look so ez.. with smiles on every face, no straining lines in the foreheads. i know its due to the training they received from Dr. Smallwood and of course the anointing that only comes from God above. i actually believe they could have went up one more time ;)

  25. PrazHymn83

    @palmc3ntr0 lol...that's maurette brown clark

  26. flka jajlik

    tht lady at 4:45 is so funny!! lol lol lol when they got louder she turned around like oh no they didnt! lol

  27. Tony Collins

    @diva13527 U ain't lyin'. I sing 1st tenor and I don't mind the higher notes but this was just crazy even for me! I almost had a stroke just THINKING about them modulating again.

  28. Okebaram E

    @TJCollins21 I agree! Those altos held it down through all those modulations and they got way up!

  29. Okebaram E

    @cameronlwoodard what are you talking about? The altos did not get overpowered and they were indeed blasting!

  30. Devonte Tucker

    @cameronlwoodard altos are blasting!!!

  31. PrazHymn83

    @xlxAbby0Princessxlx LOL!!! Yup...that's Richard for you.

  32. xlxAbby0Princessxlx

    Oh my GOODNESS!! around 4:30, I was like... this is the highest they will go... then 4:45 BOOOM!!! they went even higher!! and then 5:12 another BOOM!!! wow!

    God Bless them!

  41. jlj5056

    you all can keep that new stuff give me a gospel choir and some sisters in sunday go to meeting hats and I'm good

  42. tay rucker

    BEST CHOIR OF THERE TIME!

  43. tay rucker

    They owned this song, you have to give it too the whole choir all sections did there thing.

  44. Orion Williams

    @malealto11 If you have real sopranos in a choir, they can get that high. If you have altos posing as sopranos they won't reach that high. sopranos can all hit a certain range. After that, they break into 1st and second sopranos. 1st and 2nd sopranos will hit that height. I am a choir director. I know and have experience what I am saying.

  46. Orion Williams

    @malealto11 Where are you getting that information. If a soprano is in fact a soprano, yes they can. I am a choir director myself so I have a bit of an advantageous perspective that I am coming from.

  47. malealto11

    @459triple3 but most of them cant get that high at all

  48. malealto11

    @459triple3 but most of them cant get that high at all

  49. Andre Harris

    we used to kill this one!

  50. Tony Collins

    It's obvious the sopranos held down their part of the song but I'm givin' more credit to the altos. They are waaaaaay up there!

  51. Orion Williams

    If you neva knew sopranos could go that hight, you need to get out more.

  52. internetfan2005

    The closest you gonna get to richard smallwood other than him would be kurt carr.

  53. internetfan2005

    yes, she is still w/ this group. Speaking of her solo album, Richard Smallwood actually penned one of the songs on the album. The "We praise you" song.

  54. malealto11

    i kno dem sopranos was hurtin cuz they went to some heightsthat i neva knew a soprano could do

  55. PrazHymn83

    He was -----in 2006 in Nashville, TN

  56. beenn15

    i know right...

  57. davboogie88

    now those r sopranos!!!

  58. dudeguy927

    She's still a member of Vision? Wow, I had no idea!

  59. intoit

    I love that about her even though she branched out to do her own thing she is still apart of this anointed and blessed group.

  60. ZouBisousBisous

    I love how the choir is pleading Richard to stop modulating, lol!! My choir sings this song and I know exactly how they felt! lol

  61. Joshua Bragg

  63. Bk Keith

  64. Nikki

  65. Joelyn Nwagbara
