LYRICS: YOU CAN'T BEAT GOD'S GIVING
(Written by Doris Akers)

Chorus [2x]:
You can't beat God's giving
No matter how you try.
'Cause just as sure as you are living
And the Lord is in heaven on high.
The more you give, the more He gives to you.
Just keep on giving because it's really true.
That you can't beat God's giving,
No matter how you try.

Verse:
He send the sun and he sends the rain.
He send the harvest for the grain.
And He comes to see me every now and then.
Because He's my best friend.
And that's why I say

LYRICS: YOU CAN'T BEAT GOD'S GIVING
(as sung by the Sky Pilot Choir)

Chorus:
You can't beat God giving,
No matter how you try
And just as sure as you are living
And the Lord is in heaven on high
The more you give the more He gives to you
So keep on giving because it's really true that
You can't beat God giving,
No matter how you try

Verse:
He gave me peace, He made me whole
And when in sin, He saved my soul
And what I give could never be compared
With the blessings that I share
And that's why I say that

Chorus

I transcribed these lyrics are from the sound file of the Sky Pilot Choir (Example #3 of this post). The uploader of that sound file provided lyrics for this song that differ from the sound file. The first verse given above is very similar to the words that are posted as song's third verse. The first and second verses which were given by the uploader of that sound file are:
"Should we receive and never give
The Saviour died that we might live
His life on Calvary He gladly gave
Our sinful souls to save

He gives me health, He keeps me strong
He guides me when I would go wrong
He gives me everything that I need
My every hunger feeds"

The verse that begins with "Should we receive and never give" is similar to the verse that is sung by Gene Martin in the video given as Example #4 of this post. My transcription of that verse is given after that video.

Example #4: Gene Martin-You Can't Beat God Giving (Video)

Legendary gospel artist with heavenly voice sings classic. Gene Martin was featured soloist with A.A. Allen Miracle Revivals during the 60's and 70's,

The basic words to the verse of "You Can't Beat God's Giving" that Gene Martin sang in this video are:
"Should you receive and never give
The Saviour died that we all might live
And His life on Calvary He freely gave
To save* our world free.
That's why I say

-snip-
*It sounds to me like Gene Martin sang "save". However, the word "make" seems to be a better fit for the sentence's meaning. Perhaps Gene Martin mistakenly sang "save" when the actual word was supposed to be "make".
