The Lord is Good to Me is a song sung in the segment, The Legend of Johnny Appleseed, a segment from the 1948 animated Disney film, Melody Time. It is sung when John Chapman (aka Johnny Appleseed) harvests apples at his apple tree where he sings of how he is thankful to the Lord for giving him the apples he wanted. Johnny briefly sings it again when he sets out to the great unknown to grow an apple orchard so that his dream can come true. A reprise of the song is sung by a choir during the end of the segment when Johnny and his guardian angel proceed straight in to heaven to grow more apple trees there.


The Lord is good to me
And so, I thank the Lord
For giving me the things I need
The sun and rain and an apple seed
Yes, He's been good to me

I owe the Lord so much
For everything I see
I'm certain if it weren't for Him
There'd be no apples on this limb
He's been good to me

Oh, here am I 'neath the blue, blue sky
Doing as I please
Singing with my feathered friend
Humming with the bees

I wake up every day
As happy as can be
Because I know that with His care
My apple trees, they will still be there
Oh, the Lord is good to me

And someday, there'll be apples there
For everyone in the world to share

The Lord is good to me!
