Kirk Franklin's: Why We Sing

Updated on December 14, 2016

Kirk Franklin's: Why We Sing

Kirk Franklin's "Why We Sing" is inspirational as well as an awesome and beautiful gospel song. This is as best I can describe how I feel about this song!! I LOVE this song so much that chills run through my body when I hear it! In 1993, "Why We Sing" won "Traditional Gospel of the Year." This song is the first track on the debut album, "Kirk Franklin and The Family and was also written by Kirk Franklin. It's not surprising that this album was the first gospel music album to sell over a million music units. I love especially these lyrics, "I sing because I'm happy, I sing because I'm free....Glory, Halleluah, Your the reason while I sing"

Reason Why We Sing Lyrics

Someone asked the question

Why do we sing?

When we lift our hands to Jesus

What do we really mean?

Someone may be wondering

When we sing our song

At times we maybe crying.

And nothings even wrong

I sing because I'm happy

I sing because I'm free

His eye is on the sparrow

That's the reason why I sing



You're the reason why I sing



I give the praises to You



You're the reason why I sing

And when the song is over

We've all said


In your heart just keep on singing

And the song will never end

And if somebody asks you

Was it just a show

Lift your hands and be a witness

And tell the whole world


And when we cross that river

To study war no more

We will sing our songs to Jesus

The one that we adore
