There are classics…
…and then there are classics.
One level of classic is a specific group or vocalist classic. “We Shall See Jesus” is a Glen Payne / Cathedrals classic. “My Name is Lazarus” is a Greater Vision classic. “These are They” is a Gaither Vocal Band / David Phelps classic (though the Happy Goodmans recorded a stellar version back in the ’70s that hardly anyone remembers).
But there are classics, and then there are classics. The other level classic is a song that just about everyone has recorded at some point or another. Just for fun, when these songs are mentioned, which artist comes to mind first?
- Amazing Grace
- How Great Thou Art
- Give the World a Smile Each Day

- Just a Little Talk With Jesus
- Looking for a City
