Lyr Req: Blessed (Steve Ivey)

Subject: Lyric request 'Blessed'
From: GUEST,Kevin

I'm looking for the lyrics and the Author of a song titled "Blessed". It is included on a "Best of Bluegrass" 3CD set on disc #2. This set was produced by Steve Ivey and distributed by Madacy Music. I have not been able to locate it on general lyrics search engines and was hoping that someone here could help me find this information. Thanks

Kevin, can you give us a few phrases from the song? A title can be confusing - the first thing that came to my mind was Paul Simon's song, and that's obviously not it. I think the title of the Madcy album is Best of Bluegrass Gospel a three-disc set (but I don't have it). The artist for that particular cut isn't identified.

I think the first line is " To know that I am loved Lord, I am blessed". I hope that helps, that's all I know about it right now.

No, that's not the song I'm looking for. This song is on a bluegrass recording called "Best of Bluegrass" which is a 3 disc set. The song titled "Blessed" is on disc 2. It was produced by Steve Ivey, recorded at IMI studios in Nashville and distributed by Madacy Music. I have not been able to find anything else about this song. I'm looking for the lyrics and if possible the guitar chords. Also who is the songwriter. Thans for any help you can give me.

Thanks for the information. That is the song I'm looking for but I still can't locate the songwriter or the lyrics. Anybody else know where to look? I appreciate all your help.

OK. I am finding nowt for words or attribution. I expect "Blessed" is a hymn (flat guess on my part for no good reason). However, Kevin, it might be worth your while to e-mail

IMImusic@juno.com

and direct your question to Steve Ivey himself.

Found this: "The album also includes four new hymns (Believe, River of Life, Blessed, Go With God) written by Steve Ivey, producer and owner of IMI Music International.

So, Ivey's the author then. http://72.14.207.104/search?q=cache:gcynUyqEk0IJ:www.bluegrassworks.com/review.php%3FreviewID%3D152+Steve+Ivey+of+IMI+Music&hl=e The above quote is from the last paragraph on the page the link opens to.

Here are the words that I finally found for the song "Blessed" by Steve Ivey. Thanks to everyone who helped me locate them.

BLESSED
Steve Ivey

1. I call your name and I find comfort
Just to know that you care.
I walk each day a path that's peaceful.
With every step I take, you're there.

CHORUS: What a blessing just to know when I rise each day,
That You are guiding me in Your gentle handed way;
And as I go about my day until I lay my head to rest,
Just to know You love me, Lord, I am blessed,
Just to know You love me, Lord, I am blessed.

2. You made the stars that shine with wonder,
And skies so blue with majesty.
You gave the rain its mighty thunder,
Yet You still look down on me. (CHORUS)

TAG: With every step I take, You're there.
I call Your name and I find rest.
Just to know You love me, Lord, I am blessed.
