I love Johnny Cash’s gospel songs. Some of them I have sung many times over the years at various venues.
I just love this one, and have sung it hundreds of times.
2. It was Jesus
Here is singing at a concert. I read his book where he said he wanted to be a gospel singer, but the man at the record business wanted him to just sing the rockabilly stuff.
3. I saw a man
When I was learning to sing this one, it felt like such a holy feeling. Like I was on holy ground when I sang it.
I saw this album on sale many years ago, so bought a whole bunch and sent them to all the family. A few years ago when we were in Scotland, my one sister asked me to sing this song, but I had forgotten the words. So it is so nice to find it on the youtube.
Jesus said He is the light of the world.
I sang this one at my one sister’s wedding reception. We did a lot of singing together as children. My family had church in the house five times a week!
We sang this one many times as a family.
Everyone sings this one, but it is still one of the greatest worship hymns.
I bought this record back in about 1972, and many times I could feel the Holy Spirit moving when I sang it at various church meetings.
Many times on the road, I would sing this song as we were nearing our destination.
So good to see Johnny Cash working with Dr. Billy Graham.
I sang this one when I was a teenager. It brings back lots of memories. Dear friend, please make your peace with God, because we never know when we are going to die. I have been close to death many times.
Another favourite gospel song I sang in my childhood, except, I used to sing “railroad.”
14. The Fourth Man
When my kids were little, we often sat around the fire at night in the garden, and I would play my guitar, and sing this one.
When I sang this one, I used to change the names of the places to suit the country I was in.
This is such a powerful song. There have been times when I have sung this, and given the invitation for salvation, and about 50 young people resonded, giving their hearts to Jesus.
17. I call Him
I sang this one night at a church service, and the evangelist mentioned it in his sermon. The next night I was singing on the TV, when the evangelist came on right in the middle of the show, and I had to come on right after him singing: “Honeycomb won’t you be my baby.” I felt so terrible. That was the beginning of me switching to gospel songs.
This is so beautiful. Johnny Cash by the Jordan River singing one verse of this good old gospel song.
This is the record version. The other week I heard Willian Branham sing this on the internet, and it felt so holy. I had forgotten that Johnny did this number too, so I am so glad I found it.
I remember this song from my old records of Johnny Cash, and so glad to find it. I’m gonna be a diamond someday!
21. That’s enough
I have just found this lovely song that I have wanted to find for years. The words are such the blessing to me. He talks about how people say bad things about him, and says: “I won’t miss a friend that I never had.”
