Gospel songs by Don and Kim Case

The other week an old gospel song came to my mind called: “Jesus is the joy of living.” When I looked for it on the internet I found Don and Kim Case singing it so nicely. So I listened to a whole bunch of their songs and they were a great blessing to me. I hope you get blessed too.

1. Jesus is the joy of living

2. I’m waking up singing

3. Welcome everybody, God is still on the throne

4. Jesus took my burden and left me with a song

5. Every step I take – medley

6. Just keep on praying, Isn’t He wonderful

7. Love found a way, Praise Him

8. Deeper

9. Glory to His Name

10. My Lord knows the way through the wilderness, Each step I take, I’m following Jesus, Every step I take, Following Jesus, My Savior leads me

11. The blood that stained the old rugged cross, There is a fountain filled with blood

12. Yesterday, today, forever, Jesus is the same, Keep on believing God will answer prayer, Only believe

13. Till the storm passes by, We have an anchor, I’m standing on the rock, On Christ the solid rock I stand, Haven of rest

14. Speak my Lord

15. I do, don’t you

16. It is Jesus

17. He lifted me

When I was young I remember a few folks who played the piano accordian, and we would sing gospel choruses for hours. Sometimes around the camp fire, and other times in people’s living rooms. Hearing Don and Kim Case sing these old gospel songs brings back so many happy memories. Thank you, and God bless you.

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.

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.”

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!

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.

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

Healing stories 3 – Cancer healed

It is a terrible thing to hear the doctor say that you have cancer.

Our doctor wanted me to go to a far away city to have the top part of my ear cut off. I didn’t want to do that. I wanted God to heal me. I had this problem for a couple of years, but couldn’t seem to get healed. I prayed and prayed, but nothing worked. I prayed for other people too, in the hope that I could get healed. Still, nothing helped.

Then our doctor sent me to a specialist. He also said I had cancer, and wanted me to go to the far away city for radiation and chemotherapy. I didn’t want to do that either. Then our doctor called in another doctor, and he too said I had cancer, and wanted the top of my ear cut off in the far away city hospital. I didn’t feel like having part of my ear cut off. I would look like a real dork!

When our doctor first checked me, she also felt under my ears to see if it had gone into my lymph glands. Some years earlier, I had read a book by Esther Williams, about how her husband had a cancer problem that went into his lymph glands, and he died about two weeks later. So it could be very serious. But still, I wanted God to heal me.

Some years earlier, I had a comb with a metal clip on it so that it would be able to clip on my top pocket. I don’t know where I got the comb, but one time when I combed my ear it must have cut my skin. The cut didn’t seem to heal up. I used to love going to the swimming pool, but I saw a sign saying that you are not allowed in the pool if you have an open sore. So I had to quit going to the pool. That was very disappointing, as I loved diving off the spring board and cooling off in the summer.

This ear problem went on for a number of years. I didn’t know what to do about my problem, but kept hoping God would heal me. I have had a few healings before, so I knew God could heal me, if He wanted to. When I was young, I had a cracked spine, and I got healed. Then I had eczema in my feet, and got healed of that big problem too. My cracked spine got healed six years after the car accident by claiming that “With the stripes of Jesus I am healed.” Instantly the pain left my spine. When I had the eczema problem I kept making the same claim, but it didn’t work. After six months, I made a promise to pray for the sick in my meetings, and then I got healed on the very first night that I prayed for the sick people. I tried both these things on my cancer, but still, I couldn’t get healed.

Then one morning in church, the lady leading the song service said something like this: “Instead of praying for healing all the time, let’s just thank the Lord for healing.” The Holy Spirit seemed to take those words and burn them on my heart. When I got home, I went to the Bible Gateway program on my computer and typed in the word “thank” in the King James Version of the Bible, to find all the verses on the subject. I think I found 132 verses about giving thanks. One verse in particular, seemed to stand out to me: “Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Ephesians 5, 20)

I have to use tricks to help me memorize the verse: Giving thanks always = GTA = Greater Toronto Area. So I think of it as ‘Toronto FAT’ to help me to remember. When I count on my fingers, E is the fifth letter in the alphabet, which reminds me of Ephesians chapter five, and I have twenty finger and toes, to remind me of the verse twenty. So I will never forget where it is found!

I felt like the Holy Spirit kept working on me with the words “ALL THINGS.” Now that I am old, I keep looking back over my life, with so much regret over all the mistakes I have made, and all the things that have gone wrong in my life. The idea of giving thanks for ‘ALL THINGS’ seemed crazy! What about all the bad things? All the bad things that have happened to me, all the times people have been so bad to me, and tried to kill me and hurt me, and so forth? So I had a problem with this idea of giving thanks for all the bad things. I had no problem with giving thanks for all the good things! Lots of good things have happened to me too! I struggled with this. It just wasn’t logical to thank God for all the bad things.

Sometimes ‘forgiving’ can be a problem. I have tried so many times to overcome this problem by praying and forgiving all the people that have been horrible to me. Sometimes sins and weaknesses can be a problem too. I have been down that road so many times, and asked the Lord to forgive me. Still, I wasn’t healed.

We have a park near where we live, and I love going for walks to the park. I take it as a ‘prayer walk.’ I talk to the Lord all the way there and back. If there is no one around, I just love to swing on the swing for a few minutes. It takes me back to my childhood, and makes me happy. One day, after my swing, I got to thinking about saying a prayer of thanks. I got to thinking – it is not like gambling – I won’t lose any money! That was a relief! So, as I walked through the parking lot, I said a little prayer, and thanked God for ALL the things that had happened in my life! Boom! Something happened in the spirit realm! I could feel that something had happened! When we were kids we used to sing a chorus that went something like this: ‘Jesus took my burdens, and He rolled them in the sea, rolled them in the sea, rolled them in the sea, and now I am so happy, as happy as can be, For Jesus took my burdens, and He rolled, and He rolled, and He rolled, and He rolled, and He rolled them in the sea.’ That is what it felt like in my spirit. It was as if I had a big sack of burdens had rolled off my back! I remember seeing a Pilgrim’s Progress book once, with a picture of Pilgrim with a big sack on his back, that rolled off.

From that moment on, my ear started healing up. After about two weeks, my ear was healed. My skin had grown over the place where the sore was. Every night when I lie in bed, I raise my hands and thank my Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, for healing my ear. I am so grateful to God.

It is so wonderful to be healed. There are so many sicknesses and diseases in the world, and I don’t know the answers to all the problems, but from my experiences, I think the answer is to ask God what you must do to get healed. Many times in the Bible, people had to do things to get healed. For example, Naaman had to dip in the River Jordan seven times to get healed of his leprosy.  Jesus told a man to stretch out his hand, and he got healed. Jesus put mud on a guy’s eyes and told him to wash his eyes, and he was healed of his blindness. There are many such stories in the Bible.

Since my ear got healed I have had other problems, and each time there was a different solution. So I will share with you some of these others problems that I have had, and maybe it can give you ideas of how you can get healed.

One day I had a terrible toothache in the top right hand side on my jaw. I prayed, and the pain went away! It was so simple, that I took it for granted. A few months later I had a toothache in the bottom right side of my jaw. I prayed, but the pain didn’t go away. The pain was so terrible, and wouldn’t go away, that I started taking pain tablets. When I took the pain tablets, it would take about an hour and a quarter before the pain would subside. One day my wife saw me popping the pills into my mouth, and warned me it could damage my stomach and kidneys. That scared me, so I stopped taking the pills. Afterwards, I was driving to the supermarket to get groceries, and a chorus popped into my head that I had heard many years before. It went something like this: ‘And the blood will never lose it’s power, no never, no never. Jesus’ blood avails for me forever, it will never lose it’s power.’ So I sang it over and over again.

That night we were having family time, and the tooth pain started again. So I sang the chorus, and after a few minutes, the pain went away. That night when I went to bed, the pain came back, so I sang the chorus again, and in a few minutes the pain went away. Every time the pain started, I would sing a whole lot of songs about the blood of Jesus, and the pain would go away. The blood of Jesus is more effective than the extra strength pain tablets, and it works much faster! Glory to God!

One day, I got off my computer chair, and it felt like my right leg popped out of my hip. I could hardly walk. I spent the rest of the day lying down. The next morning, I still had the problem. I kept praying for the Lord to help me and show me what I must do to get healed. I felt I needed to sing a bit. I took my guitar and hobbled down to the basement. It was very early in the morning, and I didn’t want to disturb the rest of the family, so that is why I went to the basement. I was struggling to stand up, but I felt I must sing and praise the Lord. A song came to my mind about the blood of Jesus that I had written many years before. It was a communion type song, and it started like this: ‘I remember You, as I take this piece of bread, I remember how Your body, was broken in my stead, I remember how, they placed a crown of thorns on Your head, and that spear went through your side, and your precious blood you shed.’

I couldn’t remember all the words, but I felt in my spirit, that I must put the song on the YouTube. So I hobbled back upstairs to my room, found the tape that I had recorded many years earlier, and transferred it onto my computer. I took a few hours of putting together pictures for the video, but eventually it was on YouTube. When I stood up from the computer chair, I was healed! Hallelujah. What a relief! Glory to God! I am so grateful for all the times that the Lord has healed me.

Beloved, I hope these stories have helped you a bit to get some ideas about how you could possibly get healed. There is only one healer, and that is the Lord. In the Bible it says: ‘I am the LORD that heals you.’ Beloved, please read the Bible, and draw close to the Lord, and I am sure the Lord will show you how you too can receive your healing. In heaven there is no sickness, and no pain. Pray for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. God bless.

Here is another healing story that took place a couple of weeks ago. We were supposed to give a friend a ride to church, and when my wife tried to ring her at the apartment building, there was no reply. On the way to church we saw her on a hospital stretcher about to get loaded into an ambulance! What a shock!

After about a week in hospital she came to stay with us for a few days. One of the problems she had was to do with her heart. Just before I was to take her home, I felt a tremendous pain in my heart. It felt like someone had his hand on my heart and was squeezing it with all his might. I was at my computer, crying out in pain. My daughter was on the computer next to me, and immediately she prayed for me and rebuked the devil. Then she told me to tell Satan to leave. So I did, and it felt like a hand slowly released my heart, and the pain was gone. It seems like the devil who attacked our friend was now attacking me! Later when I went to the washroom, it felt like the devil wanted to attack me again, but I rebuked him and he left.

Beloved, if you are a servant of God, there is a strong possibility that Satan will attack you too. So, be aware of that, and resist him in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Hallelujah.

Here is a link to the communion song I mentioned earlier. I remember You

Country Gospel Songs by Dottie Rambo

I was having meetings with Pastor Eldon King in Arkansas back in 1983, and he had a record of Jimmy Swaggart and John Starnes singing this song. I loved it so much. I was so homesick for Africa.

Another one I loved went like this: ‘Mama always had a song to sing, she taught us that a melody could change most anything, so I’ll wipe away my tears, Mama sing me Home sweet home, and nearer my God to Thee, nearer to Thee.’ God bless y’all.
