Here are 8 great gospel songs by Whitney Houston for you to enjoy.

I Look to You

The album, “I Look to You,” released in 2009, was the last album that the late Whitney Houston would ever produce and it was fitting that she would sing, “As I lay me down. Heaven hear me now. I’m lost without a cause. After giving it my all” from the song, “I Look to You” and then shortly after this, would pass into eternity.  Some of her fans have said, “It’s like she’s singing goodbye” and interestingly, it ended up being that way.

Jesus Loves Me

Not only is “Jesus Loves Me” one of the all-time gospel songs, it was one of Whitney Houston’s favorites.  The words are just as relevant today as in the day in which it was written, which was by Anna Bartlett Warner in 1860.  This song was originally a poem form the novel, “Say and Seal” written by her oldest sister, Susan Warner.  This is one of the most inspirational songs that Whitney Houston ever sang with the powerful lyrics, “Jesus loves me for the Bible tells me so. Jesus loves me this I know. For the Bible tells me so. Little ones to him belong. They are weak but he is strong” and to which I believe we can all identify with.

Hold on, Help is on the Way

The song, “Hold on, Help is on the Way” is full of devotional praise that God never fails us and to take heart for “He’s coming soon” so “when it seems that you can’t stand. Just hold on to God’s unchanging hand” because “Help is on the way” from heaven above.  This song, from the movie, The Preacher’s Wife, is one of the strongest and most inspirational songs from the movie’s soundtrack and you will be inspired by it, I am sure.
