Lynda Tait Randle, as Bill Gaither has fondly introduced her for over a decade, was born in the inner city of Washington, D.C. She is the middle child of seven and feels blessed to have had the privilege of being raised in a Christian home. Although her parents, Nathel and Maxine Tait, taught her and her siblings the love of Christ very early on, Lynda still experienced a tumultuous and painful childhood. Despite being led to the Lord at the young age of 12, it would be years later before she really experienced the freedom from bondage that only God could give, Music became a way out of pain and heartache for Lynda and as a result of this God-given gift, many doors of opportunity have opened up for her.

'Give Me Jesus' Hymn From Lynda Randle And Little Big Town's Kimberly Schlapman - Christian Music Videos
Listen to this recording of the hymn ‘Give Me Jesus’ from Lynda Randle and Little Big Town's Kimberly Schlapman.
“In the morning, when I rise, in the morning, when I rise, in the morning, when I rise
Give me Jesus, give me Jesus, give me Jesus, you can have all this world
But give me Jesus, and when I am alone, oh, and when I am alone
And when I am alone, give me Jesus, give me Jesus, give me Jesus
You can have all this world but give me Jesus”
These two artists do an incredible job singing this powerful hymn together. Lynda starts off the song, and then Kimberly joins her. Their voices blend together so beautifully!
“In a world where people are crazy and folks are not getting along, we need more of this. But especially in the body of Christ, we need this,” Lynda says to Kimberly. “We need it bad,” Kimberly replies.
“I’ve heard people do these songs and they don’t understand, like, what it’s born out of, right?” shares Lynda. “You’ve got people working in the fields. They were tired, they were worn, they had been abused and mistreated. And their like, ‘God, in the morning when I rise, I wanna see Jesus, give me Jesus.’”
Lynda is talking about how the song ‘Give Me Jesus’ is known as a spiritual, and spirituals are an expression of the Christian faith seen through the lens of slavery and set to music. “Spirituals are powerful, beautiful music of sorrow and hope.” In his autobiography, Frederick Douglass describes spirituals as “those simple and apparently incoherent songs” with “strong, long and profound accents” that “breathed the prayers and complaints of souls suffering the most cruel anguish. Each voice was a witness against slavery and a prayer that God would deliver us from our chains.”
We hope that you enjoyed listening to this powerful rendition of ‘Give Me Jesus’ today!
