Joyful Gospel Song “The Old Country Church” by Gaither Vocal Group (Live Performance)

This is a very special song in a traditional setting. Yes, you guess it right. It is a picture of how a Church should come together in praise and worship! Not the concert type or decorating the stage with disco lights and smoke. We need to go back to the old country church where people can just come and sing along!!! Amen? Be blessed by this Gaither gospel song “The Old Country Church”lead by James Blackwood, Jack Toney, Squire Parsons, Ben Speer, George Younce, Ernie Haase, and Glen Payne.

“The Gaither Vocal Band is an American southern gospel vocal group, named after its founder and leader Bill Gaither. Founded in the early ’80s, Gaither Vocal Band is one of America’s leading faith-based vocal groups. While Gaither remained the only original member of the ensemble, many well-regarded CCM/gospel singers have passed through the band’s ranks, including Russ Taff, Guy Penrod, Wes Hampton, Michael English, Mark Lowry, and David Phelps. On March 1, 2017, it was announced that the Gaither Vocal Band lineup consisted of Reggie Smith, Wes Hampton, Adam Crabb, Todd Suttles, and Bill Gaither. Although the group started out recording contemporary Christian music in the 1980s, it became known for southern gospel after the popularity of the Gaither Homecoming videos.” (Source: Wikipedia)

The Old Country Church Lyrics

Oh, I’d like to go back
To that old country church
To hear the songs of praise
(Songs of praise)
How the people would sing
It would make the rafters ring
At that old, at that old country church

Shall we gather at the river
The beautiful, the beautiful river
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows from the throne of God

Oh, I’ll never forget
At that old country church
How the glory of the Lord came down
And the children would smile
As they shouted down the aisle
Of that old, of that old country church

In the sweet bye and bye
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
In the sweet bye and bye
We shall meet on that beautiful shore

Then on sunday I’d see
All my friends dear to me
At that old (at that old)
Country church (country church)
When we’d kneel down to pray’r
Everybody would be there
At that old (at that old)
Country church

Leaning (leaning)
Leaning (I’m leaning)
Safe and secure from all alarm
Leaning (leaning, leaning)
Leaning (I’m leaning)
Leaning on the everlasting arm

Now the years have gone by
And so many have died
At that old country church (country church)
But they’re on the other shore
Where they’ll sing forever more
As they did at that old country church

I’m redeemed (oh, I’m redeemed)
By Love Divine (by Love Divine)
Oh, glory, glory (Christ is mine)
Christ is mine (Christ is mine)
Oh, to Him (oh, to him)
I now resign (I now resign)
(I have been) I have been redeemed

I’m redeemed (oh, I’m redeemed)
By Love Divine (by Love Divine)
Oh, glory, glory (Hallelujah)
Christ is mine (He is mine)
Oh, to Him (oh, to him)
I now resign (I now resign)
(I have been) I have been redeemed

At that old country church

I’m redeemed (oh, I’m redeemed)
By Love Divine (by Love Divine)
Oh, glory, glory (Christ is mine)
Christ is mine (Christ is mine)
Oh, to Him (oh, to him)
I now resign (I now resign)
(I have been) I have been redeemed

I’m redeemed (oh, I’m redeemed)
By Love Divine (by Love Divine)
Oh, glory, glory (Christ is mine)
Christ is mine (Christ is mine)
Oh, to Him (oh, to him)
I now resign (I now resign)
(I have been) I have been redeemed!

At that old country church
