Dear all! I recently heard a just great performance of the song below by Elvis that deeply impressed me. Now I am curious about whether this song has any officially recognised versions in other languages, say, Russian and German. It\'s just for private purposes, no commerce involved. Any hints will be appreciated. Thanks for attention.

\"Somebody Bigger Than You and I

(Words & music by Lange - Heath - Burke)


Who made the mountains, who made the trees

Who made the rivers flow to the sea

And who sends the rain when the earth is dry

Somebody bigger than you and I


Who made the flowers to bloom in the spring

Who made the song for the robins to sing

And who hung the moon and the stars in the sky

Somebody bigger than you and I


He lights the way when the road is long

He keeps you company

And with His love to guide you

He walks beside you

Just like He walks with me


When I am weary, filled with despair

Who gives me courage to go from there?

And who gives me faith that will never die

Somebody bigger than you and I.\"

Who reigns the world, who gets the profit

Who make money flow , who\'s gonna spend it

Who\'s bank account grows when our\'s is dry

Somebody bigger than you and I.


Who feeds the clients with work not his

Who has the knack of the marketing biz

And who has no limits but the sky

Somebody bigger than you and I.


He gives you work when times are hard

Bad clients and difficult times are his trump card

When he pays you dimes instead of dollars

Pays later than he promised to do,

Pays not at all, oh, if you only knew.


When you are weary and filled with dispair

Who gives you courage to go from there,

Who gives you another small fish to fry

Another somebody, bigger than you and I.
