The other day I noticed someone looking at the country gospel songs by Stuart Hamblen, and I felt like doing an update on this site. I hope the songs are a blessing to you. They are to me.
1. A few things to remember
This is for the people who take Christ’s name in vain.
Stuart Hamblen touches my heart on this country gospel song – I too could be a tramp on the street, but for the grace of God.
Each drop of Jesus’ blood bought me a million years!
10. He makes a way for my escape
12. His hands
13. How big is God?
15. I believe
16. I believe (Thank you Jesus, I believe)
17. I don’t know why (I only know it’s true)
18. I’ve got so many million years
19. In the garden
21. Is He satisfied?
22. It is no secret
I read somewhere that Stuart Hamblen got enough money from the copyright of this song to buy himself a house. Praise the Lord.
25. Leaning on the everlasting arms
27. My brother
28. My Father
29. My religion’s not old fashioned – one of my favorite country gospel songs by Stuart Hamblen
I heard this song on a Pat Boone record back in the 70’s and it has been a great blessing to me.
30. Old Pappy’s brand new banjo
31. Open up your heart and let the sun shine in
32. Pappy’s old banjo – the same song as the earlier one but with a different title.
36. The Lord is counting on you
37. The sweetest story ever told
At times of great trouble this country gospel song has encouraged me so much.
42. They that wait upon the Lord
43. This book
44. This old house
Stuart Hamblen has written many wonderful gospel songs. In the 60’s a friend had this LP record. Back in the 70’s I had a record of Jimmy Dean singing this song, and he said that Stuart Hamblen and a buddy got caught in a blizzard, and looking for a place of shelter came across an old prospector’s shack. He told his buddy that there was a dead man in the shack, because there was a dog on the porch, and no smoke coming out the chimney. When they went inside they found it so. So they started a fire, and by the light of the fireplace he wrote this song on an old cracker box.
45. This old house – on The Johnny cash Show
47. Until then
48. What a friend we have in Jesus
49. When my Lord picks up the phone
50. When the roll is called up yonder
51. Where the seasons never change
52. Whom God hath joined together, let no man put asunder. I can’t find this song on the YouTube, but I have been singing it since the 60’s.
