I love Johnny Cash’s gospel songs more than his pop songs.
I 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 in Sun Studios wanted him to just sing the rockabilly stuff.
3. I saw a man
A Baptist minister in South Africa lent me this Johnny Cash record. When I was learning to sing this song, 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 sister Kathy 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 sister Valerie’s wedding reception. We did a lot of singing together as children. My parents had a room called: “The Lord’s Room” and we had church in the house five times a week!
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.
Another favourite gospel song I sang in my childhood, except, I used to sing “railroad.”
10. 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. One weekend in Witbank in 1971, I sang this song at the end of three different meetings, and about 50 young people responded at each meeting, giving their hearts to Jesus. I have this song on my LP record, with a friend playing the Hawaiian guitar.
13. 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 William 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.
With beautiful pictures.
Johnny does sign language for the deaf.

A very sad movie, but we all must die one day. The most important thing is to get saved by giving your life to Jesus, and receiving Him as your Saviour.
