When Jesus Passed By Lyrics Primitive Quartet

Connie Smith & The Sullivans in “When Jesus Passed By”

According to the hymn, you’ll be able to sense his Holy Presence. And what would you say if you were to find yourself in his presence? Naturally, you’d want him to bless you, and you’d be absolutely correct! The song goes on to add that you can also ask him for other things, such as the following: to hear your cry, to answer your prayers, to bring you peace, to heal your broken heart, to give you a whole new start, to experience his love, and to express your gratitude to him for everything. This is one of those songs that is rarely heard or sung these days, but it ought to be.

As a result, please remember to bookmark our website and share the music with your friends and family for your meditation and listening enjoyment!

Connie Smith and the Sullivan Family are performing the hymn’s rendition at this time.

Our Sweetheart of Grand Ole Opry, Connie Smith

Roy Acuff, the King of Country, in addition to being the Rolls-Royce of Country vocalists, bestowed the title of “King of Country” to her. Even now, her commanding presence and commanding voice are instantly identifiable. Following her meteoric rise to fame in the mainstream, Connie went on to create albums with Christian themes. After being reborn in the spring of 1968, she felt compelled to make that decision. Her parents were not Christians, and as a result, she did not grow up in a Christian environment.

  1. He introduced her to their church and appeared with them on a television Easter special.
  2. Since then, she has been attending church.
  3. He also saved her life in the process.
  4. After finding the Lord, however, his love freed her from all of her suffocating efforts.
  5. Please pass it on.

I arranged and published it in the 1990s in myEarly Hymns of Americabook by Mel Bay. It’s a fuging hymn in Walker’s edition. SONG NOTES: The Day Has Passed And Gone – Wash Nelson, vocal (Rec: Mark Wilson, Annadeene Fraley and Mary Nelson, Ashland, Ky, May, 1973). “I learned that when I was three years old”, Wash told us. “I don’t forget bad.” And he was right: at ninety-three his memory was very impressive. Apparently, his ability to remember complex songs and texts at a young age gained him some local notoriety as a ‘child preacher’. The tune is usually called Evening Shade and is found as such in William Walker’s celebrated Southern Harmony. and elsewhere. A beautiful lined out version by the Indian Bottom Regular Baptist church can be heard on one (SF 40106) of the two important Smithsonian-Folkways CD collections that have been recorded by Jeff Titon. Titon reports that E D Thomas’ Hymns and Spiritual Songs (usually called ‘The Thomas Hymnal’ by my informants) credits our text to John Leland, 1804, whereas E W Billups’ The Sweet Songster consigns it to one ‘Dupuy’. These two books are the most important sources and unifiers of tradition in our section of Kentucky, but I unfortunately don’t have direct access to either one. Both tended to be printed and peddled quite locally within our region (the Thomas collection was first published in 1877 by a Regular Baptist pastor from Danville, Indiana whereas Billups published his collection in 1854 and lived in a number of locales along the Ohio River). Mary Lozier drew mainly upon The Sweet Songster as did Roscoe Holcomb (I believe), whereas Nimrod and the Garlands leaned more to the Thomas compilation (in fact, Sarah’s religious repertory was very wide, ranging, as can be witnessed here, from the shape note repertory to Holiness shouts). The song itself is also common in black tradition, ranging from Watch That Star by the McIntosh County Shouters on Fwys FE 4344 to the eerie (and nearly unrecognizable) treatment by the Staple Singers on VeeJay. Wash includes two verses not included on the Indian Bottom recording.The day has passed and gone, the evening shades appearOh, may we all remember well, the night of death draws near. Now we’ll lay our garments by, down on our beds to restBut death may soon disrobe us all of what we now possess.Lord, keep us safe this night, secure from all our fearsAnd angels guide us while we sleep ’til morning light appears.But when we early rise and view the weary sunMay we set out to win the prize and after glory run.But when our days are past and we from time removedOh, may we in the bosom rest, the bosom of our Lord.EVENING SHADE- William Walker’sSouthern HarmonySouthern Harmony no. 46; First Line: The day is past and gone Source: Baptist Harmony, p. 373; Meter: S.M. Midi: 1. The day is past and gone,The evening shades appear;O may we all remember wellThe night of death is near.2. We lay our garments by,Upon our beds to rest;So death will soon disrobe us allOf what we’ve here possessed.3. Lord, keep us safe this night,Secure from all our fears;May angels guard us while we sleep,Till morning light appears.4. And when we early rise,And view the unwearied sun,May we set out to win the prize,And after glory run.5. And when our days are past,And we from time remove,O may we in thy bosom rest,The bosom of thy love.

2010 April : Southern Gospel World

A few days ago, on Thursday, April 29, Priscilla McGruder made her triumphant entry into the Kingdom of Heaven. As I prayed for her family in the days leading up to her funeral, I couldn’t help but reflect of the positive influence she’s had on the lives of so many people throughout her life. Despite the fact that I have never had the pleasure of meeting her in person, the presence of God comes through when I watch videos of her dancing and singing, even after being diagnosed with cancer, and I am reminded of His power and of the miracle she has been.

  • That is something I thank Him for.
  • She’s been hailed as “classy,” “anointed,” and “full of the Holy Spirit,” among other things.
  • Humanly speaking, it appears like she might have accomplished so much more had she lived a longer life, but God does not make errors.
  • I miss her, yet I wouldn’t trade her for anything in the world.

“Jasper walls, pearl gates, and a merry throng gathered around the Throne.” It’s referred to as “special.” “Call it Home!” says the special. Please include Carroll and the rest of the McGruder family in your prayers as they recover from their ordeal.

From Heaven’s Point of View

Due of my prayers for the McGruders, I’ve been singing the song “From Heaven’s Point of View” quite a bit lately. There is a video of this song available on YouTube, which features an excellent introduction by Carroll. If you’re feeling down or discouraged in any manner, I invite you to view this video and allow God to elevate your spirits. I’m not sure how to embed videos, but you may view one by clicking on this link. The perspective from the valley is restricted, but once we are able to soar like an eagle, the difficulties of this world will seem insignificant.

“From Heaven’s perspective, what formerly appeared to be a mountain is actually simply a hill.” Take a look and be blessed!

Prayer Requested for Carroll and Priscilla McGruder

It is likely that the majority of you are aware that Priscilla McGruder of the McGruders has been placed under hospice care, and there is a high likelihood that God will call her home soon. Let us take a moment to pray God to wrap His arms around Carroll and Priscilla, as well as the rest of the family, during this difficult time. If you are a member of Facebook, there is a page where you may write a message of support for the group. If Carroll and Priscilla have been a benefit to you, please take a moment to tell them how much you appreciate them.

Teach Me, Lord, to Wait

I was listening to the Statesmen sing, “Teach Me, Lord,” this evening when the words “Teach Me, Lord” simply leaped out of my speakers. Teach me, Lord, to remain on my knees until You, in Your own good time, respond to my cries for assistance. Teach me not to rely on what others do, but rather to wait patiently in prayer for a response from You in my life. Stuart Hamblen is a writer who lives in the United Kingdom. One of the most difficult things to do is to be patient and “wait on the Lord,” yet Scripture emphasizes the value of doing precisely that over and over again, especially in times of trial.

Wait, I say, on the Lord (Psalm 27:14).

Our eyes wait upon the LORD, our God, till he has compassion on us, just as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and the eyes of a maiden look unto the hand of her mistress (Psalm 123:2).

If everything were instantaneous and simple, we would have no need for God; nevertheless, we have learned to wait patiently for Him, knowing that He will never let us down.


It pains me to learn that there are so many wounded individuals who are going through life on their own when I chat to folks all throughout the country. The majority of them go to church on Sundays but don’t actually connect with other people during the week. Some of them have grown children and grandkids who never call or visit, so they suffer in quiet and attempt to figure out why they are still alive. Others have no children or grandchildren who never call or visit. It appears that individuals in our fast-paced culture are too busy to spend time with one another, but I would argue that those people are just too busy to spend time with one another.

  1. When your children are still at home, it’s necessary to work hard to put food on the table, pay bills, and keep up with family obligations.
  2. Is there someone in your family, such as your mother or father, son or daughter, who doesn’t live with you but would be delighted to hear from you?
  3. When we’re feeling sad, we rely on one another for support and refueling.
  4. Perhaps one day, you will find yourself in the shoes of that lonely person, and you will be left with all of the time in the world to reflect on all of the individuals you should have reached out to when you had the opportunity.
  5. If a person doesn’t have access to email, it can be more difficult for me to communicate with them over the phone.

However, picking up the phone or sending a letter is not difficult for me. The impact that a small act of kindness may have on someone’s day is difficult to quantify. Try it out and see what happens!

CD Review: God Is (Cavaliers Quartet)

It comprises of Anthony O’Neal, Wayne O’Neal, Jason Reese, and Ben Mullins who make up the Cavaliers’ quartet of players. This was my first encounter with them, but they have a pleasing musical chemistry. The songs on this CD are either worshipful in nature or uplifting to individuals who are going through difficult circumstances. “I’ll Keep Trusting On,” the title track from their most recent CD, is my personal favorite. While going through a challenge, it discusses the necessity of learning to trust one’s instincts.

“God Is,” “It’s Alright,” “I’ll Be Long Gone,” “Jesus Knows Just What to Do,” and “Oh What a Difference” are among the other tracks on this album.

When Jesus Passed By

Jesus passed by and said something. When Jesus passed by, all of the heartaches were no longer there. There is a lot of difficulty and struggle. Simply reaching out and touching Him will cause Him to hear your cries. And you’ll be aware that anything has occurred. When Jesus went by(Jeff Gibson)Do you recall a time when you were in desperate need of Jesus and He happened to pass by just at the appropriate time? Perhaps it was the moment when you realized you were lost and in desperate need of a Savior in your life.

  1. Or perhaps you were on the verge of being forced to live on the streets because you were unable to pay your expenses when a letter arrived in the mail with some money.
  2. Thank You, Jesus, for stopping by and saying hello.
  3. Perhaps you are in severe need of what He has to provide and are becoming tired of the waiting.
  4. His heart is still set on you, and He still has a plan for you.
  5. Remain on your knees and cry out like Bartimaeus, “Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me!” as you begin to sense Him passing by.

How Does God See You?

At that moment, Jesus came by. When Jesus passed by, all of the heartaches were no longer a problem. A great deal of adversity and difficulty He will hear your cries if you just reach out and touch Him. As a result, you will be aware that anything has occurred. What if Jesus just happened to walk by at the appropriate time? (Jeff Gibson)Can you recall a time when you needed Jesus and He just happened to pass by at the right time? Perhaps it was the moment when you realized you were lost and in desperate need of salvation.

  1. Or perhaps you were on the verge of being forced to live on the streets because you were unable to pay your expenses when a letter arrived in the mail with some money to help you out.
  2. I have a feeling there are still those of you yearning for that special something.
  3. Continue to fight.
  4. He does things in a different way than we do, yet they are all for the best.

Lie down and cry out like Bartimaeus, “Jesus the Son of David, have pity on me!” as soon as you begin to sense Him pass by your location. For those who love Him and seek Him with their entire heart, there is nothing He will not provide.

Be a Light

In the last six months or so, I’ve discovered a deep desire to serve as a Light for others. “Let your light so shine before others that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father who is in heaven,” the Bible states in Matthew 5:16. That is my prayer, and I’ve found that people that let their “light to shine” actually do stand out in a good way, which is something I believe. If I can tell a difference, imagine how much more the rest of the world would notice when someone is truly kind, merciful, and loving.

  • In some situations, especially when dealing with nonbelievers, it is preferable to be deceived rather than battle for what we believe we deserve.
  • He, on the other hand, humbled Himself to the point of dying on a cross (Philippians 2:8).
  • ” What would He do if He were in this situation?
  • The rest of the world will take notice!

CD Review: Canaan’s Crossing (Canaan’s Crossing)

I met Tina Miller, a musician and singer who is a member of a band named Canaan’s Crossing, a few months ago. I’d never heard of them before, but it’s been a pleasure getting to know them a little more. They are bluegrass musicians, yet they are 100 percent gospel. The following songs are included on this project: “Rain Fallin’ Down” (an uptempo number), “Give Me a Song to Sing” (a song that I love because God always does that for me), “Praying” (a song that I grew up hearing and absolutely love; it’s a great reminder of the importance of prayer), “Battle Scarred Soldier” (which the Bishops recorded years ago), “Talk About Suffering,” “Palms of Victory,” However, the Primitive Quartet is the only group that I’ve seen perform this song, and it is a wonderful song with an inspiring message.

This group’s musical abilities are commendable, but my favorite aspect of their CD is the song selection, which features powerful words that are supported by really gifted musicians.

If you prefer bluegrass music, you will appreciate this ensemble.


And the city did not require the light of the sun or the moon to illuminate it, for the glory of God illuminated it, and the Lamb is the light of the city (Revelation 21:1). (Revelation 21:23). Heaven is a fascinating subject, yet it is one about which I know very little. My children are constantly asking me questions about Heaven, such as whether or not there will be animals, how old people will be, and how quickly we will be able to move. You get the picture. Interesting questions, but I’m afraid I don’t have an answer for the most of them.

  • The lyrics ofGlorylandstate some of them, some of which are supported by God’s word, and there are more of them.
  • God has ascended to the seat of glory in Heaven.
  • Thine eyes will behold the monarch in all his splendor, and they will behold a place that is far away from you (Is 33:16-17).
  • Christ, the Lamb of God, is seated at the right hand of the Father.
  • Because the Lamb who sits in the center of the throne will feed them, and he will bring them to living rivers of waters; and God will wipe away all tears from their eyes (Revelation 5:8).
  • Our permanent residence is in Heaven.
  • There are many mansions in my Father’s home; if this were not the case, I would have informed you.

Moreover, if I go and prepare a place for you, I will return and bring you into my own home, so that where I am, ye may be as well (John 14:2-3).

(Phil 3:20-21).

Rejoice and be very pleased, for your recompense in heaven will be enormous (Matt 5:12a).

‘If you want to be perfect, sell all you have and give the proceeds to the poor.

“And come and follow me,” he said later (Matt 19:21).

After all, the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a mighty cry, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God.

We will be with God for the rest of our lives.

And they will be sent away into everlasting torment, but the righteous will be cast away into life eternal (Matt 25:46).

In Gloryland, we will be made in the image of God.

It is not yet apparent what we will be, beloved, but we know that, when he appears, we will be like him, for we will see him as he truly is, and we will be like him in every way (1 John 3:2).

I know this because King David stated that he would be able to join his son in Heaven if he chose to do so.

Is it possible for me to bring him back?

Have you experienced the departure of family members and friends to the heavenly realm?

So far, we’ve seen some powerful facts about Heaven as taught in the Holy Bible, but there are also some joyous lessons to take away from this experience.

Then I looked, and behold, a great multitude, which no man could number, of people of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palms in their hands; and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God, who sitteth on the throne, and unto the Lamb (Rev 7:9-10).

We won’t have to lock our doors in Heaven since there won’t be any crime.

Moreover, they will bring the pride and honor of the nations to bear on it (Rev 21:25-26).

And there shall be no entry into it of everything that defileth, nor of anything that committeth abomination or telleth a falsehood, save those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life (Rev 21:27).

And God will wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there will be no more death, nor sorrow, nor weeping, nor will there be any more suffering, for the past things have gone away.

In its place, however, will be the throne of God and the Lamb, and his slaves will serve him.

In Heaven, there will be no night, no darkness, no nothing.

And the city did not require the light of the sun or the moon to illuminate it, for the glory of God illuminated it, and the Lamb is the light of the city (Revelation 21:1).

As a result, my understanding of Heaven, or Gloryland, is restricted.


The Primitive Quartet is credited with popularizing the song.

In the late 1970s, I attended a church service where I heard Glorylandsang for the first time.

If you have pals in Gloryland who have gone because of agony, thank God they are no longer in pain up there.

They will not suffer in the future.

We won’t die much longer up there.

There are no graves on that sunny coast.

The blind man up there will be able to see.

I’ll be able to communicate with the dumb.

No, not the undertaker.

Just take a stroll around the streets of gold.

The moon and stars will not be visible.

Then don’t be sad, my friends; I’m going home. We won’t die much longer up there. There will be no coffins constructed in that location. There are no graves on that sunny coast. The King James Version of the Holy Bible is one of the primary sources.
