When it was dark in my heart

You brought light to me

A child of darkness, became a child of light

And when my soul was so dry, and I needed drink

The Water of Life you became for me



I am, I am you said to me

I知 the Alpha, the Omega, the in-between

I am, I am you said to me

And I値l be what it takes to meet your need



You were the widows cruise of oil and Elijah痴 meat

You were a shelter for 双l Noah and a shepherd for the sheep

And in the fire you were that fourth man

And a cloud by day and a fire at night

For your children to lead the way



I am, I am You said to me

I am the bread of life, take and ear

I am, I am you said to me

And I値l be what it take痴 to meet your need



I値l even go by way of Calvary

Judy, I first heard this song performed several years ago on a Rusty Goodman solo cassette. I loaned it to someone and never received it back. After many years that same collection is now out in CD and is called: Rusty Goodman - The Essential Collection. The song 選 AM was written by Gregory Coleman.

Here is a link to a place that has the soundtrack and lyrics

I heard it by the Goodmans, I think it was Rusty Goodman.

I have sang this gospel song ("I AM")for years and people really love it. I had it on an old tape I think. I had always thought that Rusty Goodman of the "Happy Goodmans" wrote and sang it, but searching the internet I can't find it connected with Rusty Goodman. I would love to know for sure who wrote and recorded it.

Yes it was written by Greg Coleman. I am 100% sure, because he is my dad. Lol.

This is a beautiful song. I first heard it almost 30 years ago sung by a man named Roger McDuff. @TColeman Thanks to your father Greg for writing this beautiful song. It has given me comfort and strength throughout my life by reminding me the power and love of God.
