This song seems to be the Afrikaans version of Across the bridge. I hope Virginia Lee made it safely across. Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father but by me.
When I was a little boy, someone had a record of Slim Whitman singing country gospel songs, and I loved it. Some of those songs are featured here, and I hope they are a blessing to you. I had 36 songs listed, but most of them have been taken off the YouTube. So I will try again. Slim Whitman has come to the end of the way, and I trust he has made it safely into the arms of Jesus. I think these country gospel songs are a tribute to his faith in Christ. This morning as I watched the sunrise I was singing: “Sunrise tomorrow.”

I have this one earlier, but here it is again by Donna Fargo. I first heard this song back in 1976, when we were visiting in Virginia, USA. I heard this it on somebody’s car radio, and loved it. Back in South Africa, I found it in a record store in Hillbrow, sung by Connie Smith, so I bought it, and sang it. It means a lot to me. I have met some people in South Africa who were like Jesse Taylor, and whose lives have been changed by faith in Jesus.
I had a record of Johnny Cash singing this song. In Germiston we had a big yard at one house where we stayed, and we used to make a fire in the garden, and sit around it singing. I often used to start with this song as we sat staring at the fire.
I heard this song on a record at Pastor Ogden’s house in 1966 when I was doing military training in Gwelo, and it is so nice to find it again on the YouTube. May God bless these people who are loading up these wonderful songs.
