Country gospel songs by Hank Snow

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!

1. The Glory Land march

My wife requested me to sing this song in church last week!

2. My religion’s not old fashioned – a country gospel song by Hank Snow

I first heard this song on a record by Pat Boone. Written by Stuart Hamblen.

3. How big is God

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.

5. These things shall pass

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.

6. The last mile of the way

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.

9. Lord, it’s me again

Hank Snow with Jimmy Snow and the Evangel Temple choir

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.

12. It`s the Lord`s way of saying goodnight

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.

17. In Daddy`s footsteps

Some big lessons here.

18. God`s little candles

19. Pray

20. Invisible hands & I`m glad I`m on the inside (looking out)

With The Blackwood Brothers.

21. I’ll go marching into glory

22. Mother, I thank you for the Bible you gave

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.

23. Prisoner’s prayer

24. He’ll understand and say well done

I would love to hear the Lord say: “Well done.”

25. I’ll just telephone upstairs

26. Lord, I do believe

27. I’m in love with Jesus

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.

30. Sacred songs album


Well, I hope you are blessed by these good old country gospel songs. Keep your wheels a spinnin’ and your friends a grinnin’.

Gospel songs by The White Sisters

Some of these gospel songs by The White Sisters go right back to my teenage years. Many of these songs speak to my heart, and I trust they will be a blessing to you.

1. Calvary conquered my heart

Jesus wants to be King of our hearts.

2. Count your blessings

This morning I went to the bathroom at 4 am, then lay in bed for the next hour counting my troubles! So I decided to get up at 5 am and ended up doing this section on the website! Beloved, count your blessings!

3. Haven of rest

4. Have you any room for Jesus

Dear friend, give your heart to Jesus today, because nobody can promise tomorrow, and eternity is a long long time.

5. How big is God

6. How great Thou art

Jesus said that the Father wants people to worship Him. Worship God as The White Sisters lead us in this good old gospel song!

7. I am not worthy the least of His favor

8. Never alone

9. Over the sunset mountains

10. Precious memories

11. Room at the cross – A Gospel Song by The White Sisters

12. Showers of blessing

13. So send I you

This old gospel song digs way down deep in my heart. Over the years I have often thought of this song, and am happy to have found it sung by The White Sisters. I spent about 17 years of my life living by faith and trying to work for Jesus. Some people got saved, some got healed, some got filled with the Holy Ghost. In eternity, it is what we have done for Jesus that will count.

14. Springs of living water

15. Sunshine in my soul

16. The King’s highway

17. Trust God in the dark

18. Where could I go
