Somebody Touch Me Music

Somebody Touch Me by The Ministers
 
 
Linda Ogbue wrote the lyrics of this song – Somebody Touch Me – on the 10th of March 1995. She said the idea to use the popular chorus with verses came to her before October 1994, but with prayers, she was able to come up with the lines of the verses in March 1995.
 
Sometime between 2012 and 2013, she got a producer to do the song featuring her sister Rosemary and friends: Davies Christopher, Justin Dimaku and Jennifer Nwatu.
 
She released it on radio in February 2014 by LinRose. She was not sure if all the radio stations she gave it to played them but was sure Rhythm 93.7fm did. The Godpel program presenter at the time – Arthur Ngube – assured her that his listeners gave it a good review, along with another song – Friend in Jesus.
 
Today, they are now referred to as The Ministers.
 
You can find the song on iTunes, Apple Music and other online platforms. It’s a beautiful folk gospel sung to relax and excite for your enjoyment.

SOMEBODY TOUCHED ME

LYRICS BY LINDA IFEANYICHUKWU OGBUE, 10TH MARCH 1995

Good morning – it’s a brand new beautiful day                     – uh uhuh u—-h
When the sunshine – pierces through my window its rays    – uh uhuh u—-h
That it gives me – the feeling to kneel down and pray           – uh uhuh u—-h
And thank Him – for another beautiful day.

What a feeling – to smile – into the beautiful day
It’s a feeling – you feel – when you hear His name.
Then He comes – see Him come
Into me – giving peace
Somebody touched me.

Chorus:

Somebody touched me (2ce)
Somebody touched my sou—l
When I was praying, praying to my Father
Somebody touched my soul.

While I close my eyes – I feel His presence inside    (Trumpeting takes the tune of uh.)
And deep in my heart – I feel the ice in me melting
Then the tears flow – as I weep away my sorrows
Not to sin again – now that I have seen your face.

So a new heart – is building – up inside of me
To love – and to share – and to give those who are in need
He is here – see Him here
In my heart – in my life
Indeed, He touched me.

Chorus.

 Bridge.

Sou——l!
Yes, He reached out
Deep into my heart
I felt His hand
Reaching out to me
Telling me words
Words that are sweeter than honey
He said – oh He said
Start a day with a prayer and a smile
Then reach out, and be good
And be your own brother’s keeper
And that really touched me.

 Chorus:

Somebody touched me (2ce)
Somebody touched my sou—l
When I was praying, praying to my Father
Somebody touched my soul.              – [It must be Jesus]
It must be Jesus – Eh! (2ce)
It must be Jesus oh—oh                     – [I know it is]
When I was praying, praying to my Fa-ther  – [Somebody touched me]
Somebody touch my – soul.                – [Somebody touched my soul]

Background repeats chorus tune while lead singer ad libs

Somebody touched me (2ce)              – [Oh, he touched]
Somebody touched my sou—l           – [As I pray]
When I was praying, praying to my Father – [Somebody touched]
Somebody touched my soul               – [Down deep inside of me]
It must be Jesus – Eh! (2ce)               – [E e eh]
It must be Jesus oh—oh                     – [I’m so sure]
When I was praying, praying to my Father
Somebody touch my soul.
