Connie Smith – Country Gospel Songs

Back in the late 70’s, I was in a record shop in Hillbrow, Johannesburg, and I found an LP of Connie Smith singing “The Baptism of Jesse Taylor.” I was so happy. I had heard that country gospel song on the radio in Virginia, USA back in 1976. Unfortunately I couldn’t find that song on the net, but here are other songs that she sings real good.

1. Away in a manger

You can remember Jesus’ birth any day of the year.

2. Clinging to a saving hand – with Marty Stewart and band

A Gaither video.

3. Clinging to a saving hand

Some nice old photos.

4. Come along and walk with me

5. Connie Smith – Country gospel songs medley

6. Crumbs from the table – with Nat Stuckey

I had a record of Bobby Bare singing this one. It was written by Willie Nelson.

8. Gathering flowers for the Master`s bouquet

10. He set me free

11. How great Thou art

12. How great Thou art – on the Porter Wagoner Show

Connie Smith inspired me to sing this song again. I just sang it in my bedroom about an hour ago!

18. If God is dead (who is this living in my soul) – with Nat Stuckey

19. In the garden

The man who wrote this song had a vision of Mary Magdalene at the garden tomb, and how Jesus came and spoke to her.

20. In the valley (He restoreth my soul)

21. Jesus is your ticket to heaven

This is a real swinging song that I had never heard before. I must learn it.

This was the first song I ever sang in front of people, and I forgot half the words!

24. Nothing but the blood of Jesus – with George Hamilton 1V

25. O holy night

26. Plenty of time

This is a very powerful conviction song. Beloved – get on your knees and give your life to Jesus. He is willing to forgive you all your sins. It just takes a couple of seconds to get saved!

27. Satisfied

I had a record of Pat Boone singing this one.

28. The Son shines down on me

29. Too much to gain to lose

I had a record of Jerry Lee Lewis playing piano and sing this lovely country gospel song. It was written by Dottie Rambo.
