Elvis Presley’s Soulful Performance ‘If The Lord Wasn’t Walking By My Side’

The King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, turned in a delightful and soulful performance of “If the Lord Wasn’t Walking by My Side.”

The world is full of lost, broken and struggling people. Most are looking for even the tiniest sign of hope that things will be better. Those individuals often deal with and carry burdens and worries too much to shoulder. Luckily, there is One who provides hope, comfort and a peace that surpasses all understanding.

In a clip posted on YouTube, Elvis sings a catchy and upbeat tune about how much the Lord cares, guides and provides daily. All would be lost without His constant guidance and direction. Christ changes lives. 

“He heard me praying (He heard me praying on my knees at night)
Now I’m singing (Now I’m singing this happy song)
Because I’m happy (because I’m happy as I go along)
And I don’t know (I don’t know) just what I’d do
If the Lord wasn’t walking by my side”

As the song’s lyrics mention, the Lord completely changes one’s life. Christ’s blood shed upon the cross covers and wipes away all sin. He has the extraordinary ability to make something beautiful out of destruction and wreckage. He can and does interject hope into a hopeless situation. 

But the lyrics also indicate that accepting Christ and allowing Him to change one’s heart and life is only the first step. From that point forward, it’s a relationship and daily walk with Him. Through prayer and continual reading of His Word, an individual is drawn closer to God, learning more about Him and His will for their lives. 

The Bible reads that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. However, He freely offers love and forgiveness for those sins. It’s a gift that will change your mind, heart and life.

Revelation 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hears my voice and open the door, I will come in to him and will sup with him, and he with me.”
