GOH: Old-Fashioned Meeting
Anybody else remember this one? Seemed like it was a favorite at revivals, camp meetings, and special services.
GOH: America Come Home
Hope everybody is having a great Veterans Day!
GOH: Come Ye Sinners (I Will Arise And Go To Jesus)
One of the frequent complaints that fundamentalists make about contemporary Christian songs is that they “make Jesus sounds like your boyfriend.” But if this hymn is any judge that sort of sentiment predates the modern praise chorus by a fairish bit (not that this has stopped modern artists from using it)
I also personally think that Freud would find this song very interesting. But that’s as far as I’ll take that line of thought.
GOH: Mercy Walked In
Don’t forget to check out their CD on the back table!
Full Disclosure: I actually knew these two singers back many, many years ago when their family were missionaries to Papua New Guinea. Their singing family act back then was typical of the kinds of on-demand performances that missionaries would be expected to put on while raising money on “deputation.” I’m a bit surprised to find them still on tour.
