Thanks to the composer/s of this song. Thanks also to all the featured singers and musicians. Thanks also to all those who are quoted in this post and the publishers of these examples on YouTube.

Hat tip to Anonymous November 28, 2015 at 3:52 PM for sharing information about the Soul Seekers' 1964 recording of this song. That information was provided in the comment section for the pancocojams post Evelyn Turrentine-Agee: "God Is Using Me" (Gospel song examples & lyrics)

The earliest example of the song "When You See Me Walking Right" (also known as "God Is Using Me") that I am aware of is the 1964 record by the Soul Seekers. However, I don't know if a member or members of that Gospel group composed that song.

I've come across a statement online that credits the composition of that song to Ronica & The Mighty Blazers. But since that song was recorded in the 1960s, the lead singer for that group wasn't born until 1970, and that group's first CD wasn't released until 1997, it seems unlikely that Ronica & The Mighty Blazers composed "God Is Using Me". That group may have sung and recorded their own arrangement to that song, but, unfortunately, I can't find an example of it online.

With the exception of Example #1, these videos are presented in chronological order by their publishing dates on YouTube with the oldest video given first.
