In 1971, I was singing in Tzaneen, and bought a record of gospel songs by Wendy Bagwell and The Sunliters. The only song I can actually remember now is the one about the black sheep. Here are a bunch of songs I found on the YouTube, and I hope they are a blessing to you.
1. This train
8. Clinging to the Master’s hand
15. Heaven will surely be worth it all
17. Travel onward
18. Silver and gold
I always tell my family that “The guns are loaded an’ the doors are bolted!” Those words are from this song. Thank you Wendy Bagwell and The Sunliters. May you receive your rewards in heaven.
23. Never been this homesick before
25. He is risen
28. On my mother’s side – A Gospel Song by Wendy Bagwell and The Sunliters
This is a fascinating song. When Jesus was little in the temple talking to the leaders of Israel, and they ask him questions. For example: “How old are you?” “On my mother’s side I am 12 years, but on my Father’s side I’ve always been!” This song gives a fantastic look at Jesus. I was lying in bed last night thinking that Jesus is the creator of the universe, so he can fix anyone’s body just with his word. He created everything by his word.
29. Tell it again
32. Sing me a good ol’ gospel song
33. It ain’t love till you give it away
34. Show me the way
39. After awhile
50. Good news
52. Interview with Little Jan Buckner Goff
53. Healing in the rain – Jan on the Gaither show
54. Here come the rattlesnakes – Wendy Bagwell “live”
We visited America in 1976, and I heard the rattlesnake story on the radio. So I bought a long playing record that had that story on it, and took it back to Africa with me.
I 1983 I was singing in Arkansas, and met a guy by the name of Wendall, then I realized that Wendy Bagwell was short for Wendall. When I first bought their record in 1971, I thought Wendy was the name of one of the girl singers! So they are called The Sunliters!
