His Voice Makes The Difference

Verse: 1
When I need him I know where to find him,
in my place of prayer his spirit hovers near,
oh his voice gently gives me my direction,
and I’ll follow that voice that I hear.

His voice makes the difference,
when he speaks he relieves my troubled mind,
it’s the only voice I hear that makes the difference,
and I’ll follow one day at a time.

Verse: 2
Oh his voice is a strong and mighty tower,
tearing down every strong hold in my life,
he’s the master of the wind and the sea that rages,
when he speaks all my darkness turns to light.

Verse: 3
I have heard other voices speaking to me,
to deceive and to lead me astray,
oh but my shepherd’s voice is different than all others,
I’m his sheep and I know my shepherd’s way.

To all that are interested in this song, "His Voice makes the difference":

It was written by my aunt, a woman pastor in West Frankfort IL, named Toedy Holley Gray. She has written hundreds of songs of like quality, many of them sang by great gospel singers of our time..
Married for many years to my uncle, Clinton Holley, who was also a pastor, after his passing, she later married a former Congressman, Kenny Gray, the Senator from Illinois.

I know this song was pitched to Jimmy Swaggart, and I believe he recorded it at some point.

She also wrote songs like, "Everything will be just right in heaven", "Just cry Jesus", "I hope we walk the last mile together", "Jesus is in this place", "Just enough grace to stand", "It's a new day" and many, many other great songs.

What a talented lady with talented daughters, Marble (now deceased) and Candy.

She will probably never get the awesome recognition that she so richly deserves in this life but on the other side I believe she will be celebrated for the many lives she touched with her music.

Hi Rusty,

Today I got my flight plan and God has instructed me to use this song as my Theme Song.  I am happy to hear the history of the true source, your Aunt and what I am more appreciative of is the quality of the reproduction in the spirit of Jimmy Swaggart.

I can't find another version that can top his reproduction so I give God the glory that he used your Aunt and Jimmy to minister to so many of us that KNOW the difference HIS voice makes and how this song bends our spirit into submission to His Own.

Since childhood, I have had a very deep love for the lyrics of the sacred songs I grew up on and because of surrendered my life as a nine year old.  Time and musical rearrangements cannot and has not been able to fade nor change the power of the rhythms either.  I am now inspired to find the lyrics of your Aunt's other songs so I can be filled with the knowledge of her relationship with God.

God bless you and her memory.
(already emailed to you)

I bless God for the song writer and all who has made the song available for the use of believers when the journey seems cloudy.

There's a gospel by a female artist with lyrics nearly like this or

"God's word makes the difference... baby I know that you could tell it apart" or so.

Any correct full lyrics or Youtube link(s)?
