    I don't know about you, but when I am depressed, there are a few songs that really speak to me... yes even this secular song...

    When I have had a bad day, I grab a cup of tea, read some scripture, and listen to this song.

    What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong.

    WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD


    (George Weiss / Bob Thiele)

    I see trees of green, red roses too
    I see them bloom for me and you
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

    I see skies of blue and clouds of white
    The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

    The colours of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of people going by
    I see friends shakin' hands, sayin' "How do you do?"
    They're really saying "I love you"

    I hear babies cryin', I watch them grow
    They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
    Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world

    Oh yeah

    The title of the thread made me thing of this song:

    (What a) Wonderful World
    Written by - Sam Cooke, Herb Alpert & Lou Adler

    Don't know much about History
    Don't know much Biology
    Don't know much about Science books
    Don't know much about the French I took
    But I do know that I love you
    And I know that if you loved me too
    What a wonderful world this would be

    Don't know much about Geography
    Don't know much Trigonometry
    Don't know much about Algebra
    Don't know what a slide rule is for
    But I know that one and one is two
    And if this one could be with you
    What a wonderful world this would be

    Now I don't claim to be an A student
    But I'm tryin' to be
    Oh maybe by being an A student, baby
    I can win your love for me

    Don't know much about History
    Don't know much Biology
    Don't know much about Science books
    Don't know much about the French I took
    But I do know that I love you
    And I know that if you loved me too
    What a wonderful world this would be

    But I do know that I love you
    And I know that if you loved me too
    What a wonderful world this would be

    Bad days come too close together, don't they? That's an awesome song. It leaves a satisfyingly calmness inside me as well. Thanks, tinytim, for reminding me. I haven't heard it in some time. :)

    Thanks, tinytim. I like that song, too. I like Louis Armstrong's voice.
    We rarely hear songs like that anymore.

    One secular song I like, too, is She Believes in Me, by Kenny Rogers.

    When I mess up and hurt my wife's feelings, this song comes to mind.

    I first heard that song in the movie "Good morning, Vietnam" And loved it. It is a great song and this may seem wierd but I told my wife to play it after my funeral as a request by me! It seems to be so serene and full of hope and the good things. I just really love this song.
    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    I want that song at my funeral too. It may be a secular song, but whenever I listen to it I think of God and how grateful I am to him for my life and everything in it.
