Give Me More Love in My Heart (1980)

Updated: Apr 13

Give Me More Love in My Heart is the fourth studio album by Christian gospel singer Larnelle Harris. Released in 1980, it is Harris' first album on Benson Record's Impact label. The album is produced by Howard McCrary and Paul Johnson. Harris was the first artist to record singer - songwriter Dottie Rambo's "We Shall Behold Him." Christian recording artist (and Harris' label mate) Sandi Patty would record her now famous version for her 1981 album Love Overflowing.

In 1981, Give Me More Love in My Heart was re-released with a different album cover and different track listing. In the re-release, the songs "We Shall Behold Him" and "Blessed, Broken and Given" were replaced by new tracks "Here I Am, Send Me" and "I'll Meet You at the Rapture." Harris won his first Dove Award for Contemporary Black Gospel Album of the Year at the 12th GMA Dove Awards. Unfortunately, this album is not available on any digital or streaming platform and is out of print.
