Williams, Deniece - They Say Lyrics



They say that He was just a man
They say He had the strangest plan
That His love would set the captives free
And He would give life eternally

They say His words just can't be true
And they say, 'how can He make us new?'
But I know that I've been born again
He washed my soul, and from our sins I'm cleansed

So let them say that it's a passing thing
Oh, but my life has changed, no, I'm not the same
The seasons pass and the flowers fade
But what I found in Christ shall never pass away
Never pass away

They say thousands can be fed
And they say with a few fish and some bread
But I know His miracles are true, oh, yes
And what He's done for me, only Christ can do

So let them say that it's a passing thing
Well, my life has changed, no, I'm not the same
Whoa, seasons pass and the flowers fade
But what I found in Christ shall never pass away, yeah
Oh, yeah, never pass away

Let them talk, let them talk, let them talk
Let them talk about me
Let them talk about me, yeah
I'm gonna praise His name
I don't care, I don't care, I don't care
I don't care what they say about me
No, no, no, no
I'm gonna praise His name

Jesus
(His name is Jesus)
Jesus
(He's a bright and morning star)
Jesus
(Jesus)
Jesus
(He's right on time)
Jesus
(Jesus)
Talking 'bout Jesus
I'm gonna praise His name
(Gonna praise His name, Hallelujah)

Jesus
(Jesus, my Lord)
Jesus
(Jesus, my Lord)
Jesus
(Jesus, my Lord)
Jesus
(Jesus, my Lord)
Jesus
(Jesus, Jesus)
Jesus
I'm gonna praise His name
(Hallelujah!)

Jesus
(The bright and morning star)
Jesus
(The lily of the valley)
Jesus
Jesus
Jesus
(Salvation is in His Name)
Talking 'bout Jesus
I'm gonna praise His name
(We're gonna praise His name...)

Williams, Deniece They Say Comments
  1. Fred Simmons

    Love this song right here.

    Philippians 4:8

    Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any moral excellence and if there is any praise, dwell on these things.

  2. Ladenna Young

    I used to sing this all the time! 😊

  3. Mr. Avery

    Deniece straight outta Gary, Indiana & each and everytime I hear her angelic voice, all I think about are my summers as a youth spent with my grandparents in Gary, Indiana. Priceless!!!!

  4. Tiki HW

    I had no idea they had this song together. I know she sang it with Sandi Patty. I love this version as well. This collaboration explains my entire childhood of the 80s. We went from listening to Earth, Wind and Fire to Gospel - Deniece Williams.

  5. Delores Spencer

    I have this CD..I love it

  6. olusheyi banjo

    Happy Birthday Deniece

  7. ralston mathews

    the first time I heard this was on WHUR DC 96.3FM by the late originator Quiet Storm Melvin Linsay.

  8. Darlene Johnson

    Simply AWESOME! Phil & Niecy voices from Heaven. I hope that they will do another gospel tour together? THANKS LORD!!!

  9. Randy Krank

    Two of the best. I wish they would have made more sings like this.
    One if those classics that should be forbidden by any else to sing.

    Perfect harmony! Phillip never got credit for his " Chinese Wall" album.

  10. Melody Sanger

    HAPPY 68TH BIRTHDAY JUNE "DENIECE" WILLIAMS (JUNE 3, 2018)

  19. Fernandez Woods

    I have been looking for this song for a long time so glad that I found it praise the Lord thank you

  20. felicia pooler

    I am watching a gospel video. Before the video appeared, there was a commercial of a man in nothing but a pair of tight briefs. and, the body was slicked up. He was flexing his body and provocative music played. Then Invictus came up. I took off the sound as soon as it came up.  What was worse, I could not skip the ad until almost the end.  This has happened SEVERAL TIMES when I watch gospel videos.  I would like You Tube to be more considerate and do a better job in where commercials are placed.

  21. Zipora Linzer

    Beautiful song - thanks for posting

  22. Zariah Robinson

    Niecy and Philip put down on this song calling his name for everyone in his many forms

    Just last night i was coming back from the country in Jamaica and my God, i felt the spirit of Jesus with me and in me just listening and singing along

  41. friendofman

    This is another "Deniece Williams" favorite of mine! I like both renditions of her with Philip Bailey and also later with Sandi Patty (which I think the Deniece/Sandi version won a Grammy Award).

  42. Jimmie Hines

    I JUST LOVE THIS SONG ITS MOVING TO MY SOUL I TRULY FEEL IT

  43. 76grandprix

    I had that tape. Wonderful gospel song by the two.

  44. eyesley

    Happy Birthday Deniece Williams. What a wonderful duet with Phillip Bailey. Wore the cassette out with this song on it back in the day!

  45. SupaHead1977

    @aliquippawill If You think that this version of Niecy singing They Say was good, You should hear her remake of this song with Sandi Patti. That was the first time I've heard of this song...was with Deniece & Sandi and they tore that song up. Now don't get me wrong, this song is hot...But Sandi and Niecy went off on that version.
    Off the Album So Glad I Know

  46. zarchild777

  49. JayneMariefromDet

    THIS was my song! I remember this song on a Blue Cassette Tape! Dang I would love this on Vinyl! This would sound soooo good on my record player -- like old times. lol Am I really this old so soon?

  50. phillip brasco

    @osajojo yes I love this mellow heavenly sound. I always wanted to hear her gospel greats so someone sent me a clip on it. She's awesome. I wish I knew when the Dove awards was because I heard she had won so many. She just has that heavenly spirit.

  51. phillip brasco

    She has the sweetest voice...(so does he) I try to hit all those high notes when singing "Gonna Take A Miracle" or "Let's Groove" and "September"

  52. David Hollis

    these are some of my greatest mentors, what great love the father has given me to imitate and learn from. Sing big brother, and sing big sister.
