Musings From A Musical Mind

I Need You Now

This song was sung by Stefano on American Idol tonight and launched him into the top 13 – it was brilliantly executed with amazing clarity and emotion.  It was very touching – and I just had to share the song with you – here it is – sung by Smokie Norful.

Enjoy and God Bless!

Not a second
Or another minute
Not an hour
Or another day

But at this moment with my arms outstretched
I need you to make a way
As you’ve done so many times before
Through a window or an open door

I stretch my hands to you
Come rescue me
I need you…
Right away

I need you now
I need you now
I need you now
I need you now

Not another second
Or another minute
Not aother hour of another day
But Lord I need you right away

If I never needed you before
To show up and restore
All of the faith that I let slip
While I was yet searching the world for more

The true best friend I have indeed
You’re my best friend I know indeed
I stretch my hands to thee
Come rescue me
I need you right away

The agony of being alone
The fear of doing things on my own
The test and trials that come to make me strong
The feelings of guilt, hurt, shame, and defeat
The way the trials that beat upon me
But to know Lord that in you I’ve got victory

I need you now, Lord, I need you now (Oh, wo, wo)
I need you right now, right now, right now
I need you now

Oh not another second
Not another minute, Lord
Can’t wait another day (oh…)
Oh Lord, please make a way
Oh Lord, Oh Lord, Mmmmm, Yeah

  1. That’s a beautiful song. I’d never heard it either. And, like JoJo, I didn’t know they allowed Christian music on AI.

  2. […] I Need You Now ( […]

  3. American Idol. Cynthia watched her first episode last night while I was at work. I’m glad you enjoy it. I’d rather eat tacks. Or watch The Notebook. Twice. 🙂

    Good song though.

    • Arthur – You made me laugh right out loud! LOVE your sense of humor. By the way – “The Notebook” is one of my favorite movies – how did you know?

      • Because The Notebook is one of every woman’s favorite movies. Along with Steel Magnolias, When Harry Met Sally, and Beaches.

        And any man who wants to make his woman happy will watch them with her. And any woman who loves her man will only make him watch them once.

      • Well – now – just when I thought you understood women. I don’t actually care for When Harry met Sally or Beaches – so THERE! I do however LOVE movies and books like “To Kill A Mockingbird” – it’s our favorite and we watch in every year. I also love “While you were Sleeping” and “Run away Bride” – “Anne of Green Gables” “Meet Joe Black” – my list is long! Arthur, Arthur, Arthur…tisk tisk – every woman is unique – just saying…:) But you are right – a man that loves a woman will watch what she loves – and I don’t make Greg watch anything with me – he watches them just to be with me – which he LOVES to do.

  4. Wow. I didn’t think they allowed Christian music on that show.
