I LOVE the Gaithers. When they come together with their friends, it is truly a Homecoming!
Every song on this CD is here for a reason.
My favorite, and the one that I will discuss the most is “We Shall Behold Them”. This version is sung by David Phelps and there just isn’t a way to describe it. So here it is
While this is full on David Phelps, it is presented by The Gaithers! It doesn’t get better than this with these lyrics.
The sky shall unfold Preparing His entrance.
The stars shall applaud Him, With thunders of praise.
The sweet light in His eyes, shall enhance those awaiting
And we shall behold Him, then face to face.
We shall behold Him, we shall behold Him Face to face
In all of His glory.
We shall behold Him, yes we shall behold Him Face to face,
Our Savior and Lord.
The angel will sound, the shout of His coming.
And the sleeping shall rise, from there slumbering place.
And those who remaining, shall be changed in a moment.
And we shall behold him, then face to face.
We shall behold Him, we shall behold Him!
Face to face in all of His glory.
We shall behold Him, yes we shall behold Him!
Face to face, our Savior and Lord.
And we shall behold Him, our Savior and Lord Savior and Lord!
That song, those words, We shall behold HIM, Our Savior and Lord! It doesn’t get better than that! Then I listened to the rest of the CD

There isn’t better than old hymns, a little christmas music thrown in and the fantastic voices that you will hear belt out these amazing songs. Now don’t get me wrong, I love new worship music. Give me a Chris Tomlin, or Tree 63 or some Sidewalk Prophets any day. I know my heart and mind is taken back to a simpler time though when I hear these old, beautiful hymns. Sang by the people I used to sit around and listen to on Saturday night Singing at home with my parents.
What great memories that this CD brought back for me. You can buy CD’s like this one and many more at Family Christian Stores.
