Well, He's so high (so high you can't get over Him)
So wide (so wide you can't get around Him)
So low (so low you can't get under him)
Great God Almighty (you must come in at the door)

Oh well, He's high (so high you can't get over Him)
He's wide (so wide you can't get around Him)
So low (so low you can't get under him)
The mighty lamb (you must come in at the door)

Well I went down in the valley
You know I did over there ever stay
My soul got happy in the valley
You know I stayed right there all day

Well, He's high (so high you can't get over Him)
And he's wide (so wide you can't get around Him)
I know he's so low (so low you can't get under him)
The mighty lamb (you must come in at the door)

Well I ain't been to heaven but I’m, I'm told
The streets the streets are pearls
You know the mighty mighty
Mighty gates are gold

And He's high (so high you can't get over Him)
So wide (so wide you can't get around Him)
He's so low (so low you can't get under him)
The mighty lamb (you must come in at the door)

Well, He's high (so high you can't get over Him)
And he's wide (so wide you can't get around Him)
I know he's so low (so low you can't get under him)
The mighty lamb (you must come in at the door)

It's a shame that the sound on the hgta lp isn't as great as on hhim. Elvis himself wasn't in his best voice either, but at least he sounded emotional connected to most of the songs, something that got lost on all the soundtracks he sang but doesn't cared for. In hindsight those sessions here seemed to be the beginning of his comeback, even if not many record buyers cared back then. So High, why not the best track of the album, is one of the more convincing efforts on the lp. Elvis was still abke to handle rhythm songs. It's not a masterpiece, but definitely a nice listen. I give 4 stars.

The book of Revelation (chapter 21, verse 21) in the Holy Bible speaks of gates of pearl and the street of pure gold, not the opposite way as Elvis sang it.

How he excelled at these uptempo gospel numbers, and could match his black brothers with the excitement and feeling generated. I can almost see everyone rocking the church aisles when I here these numbers.

Probably my favourite Elvis gospel. I can't stand still and praise the Lord when I hear this one.
