Theme CD: Martyrdom
By some estimates, more Christians died for the faith in the 1900s than in any previous century. Despite the Bible’s calls to remember those suffering for the faith in prayer and reminders that we are part of the same body, it’s not a topic most American Christians discuss frequently. Thus it should come as little surprise that there don’t seem to be many Southern Gospel songs about martyrdom.
In fact, I can only think of one: “We’ll Go Down Standing Up,” penned by Kyla Rowland, and not yet cut by any major-label group (though her brother has recorded it with The Rowlands).
Are there others?
