My Favorite love songs about summer

Yesterday I walked to the park, and saw that the pool was closed. There was a cold wind, and it hit me so hard that the summer was over. My heart felt so sad. So I came back home and looked up songs that brought back memories of that summer feeling, and so I am making this section on my favorite love songs about summer.

Favorite Love Songs by Merle Haggard

I had a whole lot of favorite love songs by Merle Haggard on this site, but many of them have been taken off. So I have adjusted the site accordingly.

1. Big city

Back in the eighties I heard this song a lot on the radio, and longed to quit my job and head for the wild west.

2. Okie from Muskogee

This was a big hit for him.

3. Today I started loving you again

Another favorite love song.

8. Running kind – the fugitive

I saw Merle Haggard on TV once where he was saying that Johnny Cash gave him some good advice. He said he must tell the people he has been in prison, that the people would understand. If he didn’t, and the media found out, they would ruin his career.

Favorite Gospel Songs by Jack Holcomb

I remember John Piermain singing this song at the meetings when I was a teenager.

3. I shall know him

There is a very holy feeling when Jack Holcomb sings. I hope you feel it too.

4. Stranger of Galilee

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.

5. I found the answer

Mr. Jack Holcomb expresses what I feel – my purpose for living is to do something for Jesus.

11. If I gained the world

13. In times like these


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!

14. The Holy City Jerusalem

15. Take up thy cross

16. Just as I am

17. One of my favorite Gospel songs by Jack Holcomb –  It took a miracle

The other week after making the song list, I found myself lying in bed that night singing this song over and over again.

18. He washed my eyes with tears

19. Without Him

20. Why should he love me so

To me there is a very holy feeling about this favorite gospel song.

27. Must Jesus bear the cross alone

28. Down deep in my heart

29. Ninety and nine

30. There is a balm

31. Lily of the valley

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.

32. All the way the Savior leads me

33. Open your heart

34. I’d rather have Jesus

35. ‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus

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.
