When I was young, a friend in Salisbury had a record of about twelve different American singers. One was Roy Rogers, who I knew from my cowboys comics, and another was Hank Snow singing Glory land march. I had never heard of Hank Snow before, but I loved the upbeat sound. I never heard of him again in Africa, but when I came to Canada, I found out that he was a famous Canadian singer that made it big in Nashville. Here are some of his country gospel songs that I found on the YouTube, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I hope they don’t take them off!
My wife requested me to sing this song in church last week!
I first heard this song on a record by Pat Boone. Written by Stuart Hamblen.
Another Stuart Hamblen song.
4. I saw a man
I first heard this song by Johnny Cash, and it was such a tremendous blessing to me.
Another Stuart Hamblen song that blessed me a lot when I was a teenager. When troubles came my way I often sang this song, and it was such a great comfort to me.
Brother, we have to make it all the way to the last mile. (or kilometer!)
7. This train
8. I see Jesus
This song is about Stephen when he was stoned.

10. Why me
11. His hands
This morning I woke up with this song on my heart – hence this web post. I first heard this song by Stuart Hamblen.
13. These hands
The song says: “These hands raise to praise the Lord.” Over the years as I have been to many different churches, sometimes I raise my hands to worship the Lord, but I notice, that many people in churches don’t do that. It is scriptural you know!
14. It is no secret
One of the famous country gospel songs that Stuart Hamblen wrote.
15. Whispering hope
Never lose hope brother, it can help you through the hard times.
16. I saw the light
A musical with Chet Atkins. I first heard this song on a record I bought of Bobby Bare singing country gospel songs.
Some big lessons here.
With The Blackwood Brothers.
This is a powerful song. My parents gave me a Bible when I was a teenager, and I read one chapter a day as my spiritual food, and after a few years, I had read the whole Bible.
I would love to hear the Lord say: “Well done.”
28. Jesus wept
The write up under the song says that Hank Snow and his wife Minnie wrote this song.
29. Nobody`s child
Please listen to the words of this boy. It will touch your old crusty heart.
GLORY LAND MARCH, INVISIBLE HANDS, HE’LL UNDERSTAND AND SAY WELL DONE, MY RELIGION’S NOT OLD FASHIONED, MY MOTHER, I’M GLAD I’M ON THE INSIDE (LOOKING OUT), THE ALPHABET, I’M IN LOVE WITH JESUS, THESE THINGS SHALL PASS, PRAY, LITTLE CHILDREN, I’M MOVIN’ ON TO GLORY
Well, I hope you are blessed by these good old country gospel songs. Keep your wheels a spinnin’ and your friends a grinnin’.
