Covers: God Is Standing By

The original version is by The Soul Stirrers from 1962. It features Johnnie Taylor who wrote the song and later had a long career as a soul singer. Al Green covered it on his great 1971 album Gets Next To You. Green also recorded it as “I’ll Be Standing By” which is a bonus track on some releases of Gets Next To You. It’s great, too.
