I hope you enjoy some of these timeless old favorite Gospel songs as sung by Jack Holcomb.
I remember John Piermain singing this song at the meetings when I was a teenager.
There is a very holy feeling when Jack Holcomb sings. I hope you feel it too.
When I was little, I remember Pastor Shanklin singing this song, and playing his piano accordion. It is so wonderful to be able to hear these old songs on the youtube. Many many years later I wrote my own song about Galilee, after being in Israel, called: Blue Galilee.
Mr. Jack Holcomb expresses what I feel – my purpose for living is to do something for Jesus.
When I was little I heard Slim Whitman singing this song on a record. One day we all have to give an account.
12. Leave it there
This is a photo I took of “Uncle” Willie Roeland.
When I was visiting South Africa in 1971, I stayed a few months with “Uncle” Willie Roeland at his house called “Eldorado.” He told me once how he was in a car full of businessmen hurrying to get to a meeting, when a tire blew out. He said they went all over the road, miraculously missing all the other cars, then the car rolled a few times, then spun around on it’s roof before landing back on it’s wheels. He said he only had time to say: “Jesus.” He said as they sat there in the car in total shock, with the dust settling, there was a tape in the tape deck, and someone was singing this song: “In times like these – you need a Savior.” Wow – that’s true!
16. Just as I am
The other week after making the song list, I found myself lying in bed that night singing this song over and over again.
19. Without Him
To me there is a very holy feeling about this favorite gospel song.
21. In the garden
22. He touched me
23. It is well
25. I stand amazed
29. Ninety and nine
30. There is a balm
When I was little, I heard my Mother singing this song, and it has remained one of my favorite gospel songs. It brings back so many memories of my childhood.
33. Open your heart
I remember hearing my daughter singing this one, so I feel it must be one of her favorite gospel songs.
I found it so sad to read that Mr. Jack Holcomb died at the age of 47, but he achieved something for Jesus. We can be so blessed so many years later with his beautiful rendition of these magnificent songs.
