Gary V’s Most Endearing Gospel Song

Gary Valenciano’s most popular Gospel music

Gary Valenciano’s rise to fame came with bitterness and insecurities. Before coming to Christ, he felt empty despite becoming the most popular singer in the Philippines during his time.

Against all odds, he shifted to gospel music after becoming a Christian. A risk that took him to greater heights. The following three songs became No. 1 hits in the 1990s and continue to be aired today.

Letting Go

Faces of Love album, 1990

Gary V sings Letting Go and Take me out of the Dark arranged by Mon Faustino at his 1991 full house “Major Impact” concert.

Verse 1

I used to feel the emptiness inside me
I was not supposed to feel that way
I had everything I needed
But nothing ever made me
What I longed to be
The wealth, the name
The lights, the fame
Were everything to me

Verse 2

And then one night
Out of the blue
I heard His name (Jesus)
And so I took that step of faith
And walked into His domain
I believe that’s what He wants
Every heart to do
When hard may seem the task
One step is all He asks of you


Letting go to know the truth
Is not so hard to do
It’s the heart that’s got the will
To open up for Him to fill
And trusting and believing Him
Is all we’ve got to do

It’s just the heart that’s got to move
For Him to show His love that’s been there
Even when we never cared
Take hold of His hand
Let go and you’ll understand

Verse 3

Why be afraid
For God knows what you’re feeling
But even He can’t do a thing
If He sees the heart’s not willing
And so we ask what’s going on
We want what’s right and still do wrong
When hard may seem the task
One step is all He asks of you


I guess by now you’d realize
You can’t be on your own
And all your cares
And all your burdens
Should be cast upon His throne
Letting go, just let go, letting go
Let go and you’ll understand
Just let go and you’ll understand

Take me out of the Dark

Moving Thoughts album, 1988

Verse 1

Just what is it in me
Sometimes I just don’t know
What keeps me in your love
Why you never let me go

And though you’re in me now
I fall and hurt you still
My Lord, please show me how
To know just how you feel


You have forgiven me
Too many times, it seems
I feel I’m not what you might call
A worthy Christian after all
And though I love you so
Temptation finds its way to me


Teach me to trust in you with all of my heart
To lean not on my own understanding
I just forget
You won’t give me what I can’t bear

Take me out of the dark, my Lord
I don’t wanna be there

Verse 3

You’ve never left my side
You gave your hand to me
To hold you, Oh Jesus
I’m no longer in the cold

Verse 4

And yet, I leave you there
When I feel satisfied
I’d like to thank you every day
Not only…

Could you be Messiah?

Shout for Joy album, 1991

A remake of Could you be Messiah, sung by Morissette Amo in 2021.

Could You be healer
To a heart that’s been wounded
In a battle that’s never seen
Could You be teacher
To a mind of confusion
Tell me what does this all mean

Are You deliverer
Of an imprisoned feeling in chains
Can You set my spirit free
And just one more question
Allow me this question
Could You be Messiah to me
Could You be Messiah to me

Could You be father
To a soul that’s been abandoned
By a world too busy to hear
Could You be friend
To a helpless survivor
Can You take away my fears

I heard them all sharing
This newfound conviction in them
Are You all that they make You to be

And just one more question
Allow me this question
Could You be Messiah to me
Please be Messiah to me

Now i’ve been looking for someone like You
And I’m so tired, I’m tired
I’ve read every book and I’ve sang every song
My mind maybe right but my heart feels so wrong
Tell me how much further can my life go along
Which way do the roads lead where do I belong…

Are You forgiver
Of my most unknown secrets
Provider of all that I need
Could You be brother
The one who knows better
Would You now stand in the lead

When all this is over, all the thunder and lightning
In the daylight just what will I see
The answers to my questions to all of my questions
Could You be Messiah to me
Could You be Messiah to me
Please be Messiah to me…

Testimony of Gary Valenciano.
