  • - OH, BLESS YOU.
  • 00:03:41.000 --> 00:03:41.280
  • BEEN A PRIVILEGE TO BE
  • 00:03:41.280 --> 00:03:44.040
  • WITH A MAN THAT PREACHES,
  • 00:03:44.040 --> 00:03:46.060
  • LIKE BILLY DOES,
  • 00:03:46.060 --> 00:03:47.270
  • THE JOHN 3:16 MESSAGE.
  • 00:03:47.270 --> 00:03:50.090
  • I'VE HEARD HIS SERMONS

  • 00:03:53.270 --> 00:03:55.080
  • AND EVERY TIME, YOU LAUGH
  • 00:03:55.080 --> 00:03:56.170
  • WHEN IT'S REPEATED, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:03:56.170 --> 00:03:58.070
  • AND WE NEVER--WE HEAR EVERY WORD
  • 00:03:58.070 --> 00:04:00.240
  • ALL THESE YEARS.
  • 00:04:00.240 --> 00:04:02.160
  • - Gaither: HE STILL DOESN'T
  • 00:04:02.160 --> 00:04:03.170
  • WANT TO GET UP THERE
  • 00:04:03.170 --> 00:04:04.150
  • BEHIND THE PULPIT
  • 00:04:04.150 --> 00:04:05.180
  • UNLESS YOU HAVE SUNG A SONG.
  • 00:04:05.190 --> 00:04:08.190
  • I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY TIMES
  • 00:04:08.190 --> 00:04:09.180
  • THE VOCAL BAND HAS BEEN
  • 00:04:09.180 --> 00:04:10.130
  • ON THERE, BUT WE TRY TO DO
  • 00:04:10.130 --> 00:04:11.140
  • THE BEST WE CAN DO.
  • 00:04:11.140 --> 00:04:12.160
  • - WELL, YOU DO GREAT.
  • 00:04:12.160 --> 00:04:13.100
  • - Gaither: BUT RIGHT BEFORE
  • 00:04:13.100 --> 00:04:14.080
  • HE PREACHES, HE WANTS
  • 00:04:14.080 --> 00:04:15.210
  • TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE SUNG.
  • 00:04:15.210 --> 00:04:17.180
  • - AGAIN, THAT WORD "PRIVILEGE"
  • 00:04:17.180 --> 00:04:19.120
  • JUST COMES TO MY MIND
  • 00:04:19.120 --> 00:04:20.170
  • ALL THE TIME, BECAUSE--
  • 00:04:20.170 --> 00:04:22.090
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN HE CALLED ME
  • 00:04:22.090 --> 00:04:24.130
  • IN 1947 AND SAID THAT WE WERE
  • 00:04:25.000 --> 00:04:28.000
  • GOING TO START RIGHT AWAY
  • 00:04:28.000 --> 00:04:29.010
  • A KIND OF A TEAM, YOU KNOW--
  • 00:04:29.010 --> 00:04:30.270
  • "CLIFF'S WITH ME,
  • 00:04:30.270 --> 00:04:31.180
  • AND I'D LIKE YOU TO JOIN ME.
  • 00:04:31.180 --> 00:04:33.050
  • I'D LIKE YOU TO SING
  • 00:04:33.050 --> 00:04:34.000
  • BEFORE I SPEAK."
  • 00:04:34.000 --> 00:04:35.010
  • AND I SAID, "BILLY"--I GUESS
  • 00:04:35.010 --> 00:04:37.190
  • I CALLED HIM "MR. GRAHAM."
  • 00:04:37.190 --> 00:04:39.160
  • I SAID, "YOU KNOW,
  • 00:04:39.160 --> 00:04:42.050
  • THE ONLY GOSPEL SINGERS
  • 00:04:42.050 --> 00:04:43.100
  • I'VE EVER HEARD ABOUT
  • 00:04:43.100 --> 00:04:44.290
  • WILL SING A VERSE OR TWO
  • 00:04:44.290 --> 00:04:46.260
  • AND STOP AND TALK AWHILE.
  • 00:04:46.260 --> 00:04:49.080
  • WILL I HAVE TO DO THAT?"
  • 00:04:49.080 --> 00:04:51.060
  • HE CHUCKLED, AND HE SAID,
  • 00:04:51.060 --> 00:04:52.170
  • "I HOPE NOT."
  • 00:04:52.170 --> 00:04:53.160
  • - Gaither: [laughs]
  • 00:04:53.160 --> 00:04:54.140
  • - THEN I SAID, "THEN
  • 00:04:54.140 --> 00:04:55.140
  • I'D LIKE TO COME WITH YOU."
  • 00:04:55.140 --> 00:04:56.210
  • SO IT'S BEEN EVER SINCE
  • 00:04:56.210 --> 00:04:57.280

  • IN FIRE AND SMOKE,
  • 00:05:06.010 --> 00:05:08.060
  • LOOKED ALL AROUND ME.
  • 00:05:08.060 --> 00:05:09.290
  • IT LOOKED SO FINE
  • 00:05:09.290 --> 00:05:11.250
  • TILL I ASKED MY LORD
  • 00:05:11.250 --> 00:05:13.210
  • IF ALL WAS MINE.
  • 00:05:13.210 --> 00:05:15.270
  • - EV'RY TIME
  • 00:05:15.270 --> 00:05:17.030
  • I FEEL THE SPIRIT
  • 00:05:17.030 --> 00:05:19.100

  • - CHILLY WATERS,
  • 00:05:30.200 --> 00:05:32.100
  • CHILLY AND COLD.
  • 00:05:32.100 --> 00:05:34.040
  • IT CHILLS THE BODY
  • 00:05:34.040 --> 00:05:35.280
  • BUT NOT THE SOUL.
  • 00:05:35.280 --> 00:05:37.230
  • THERE AIN'T BUT ONE TRAIN
  • 00:05:37.230 --> 00:05:39.190
  • UPON THIS TRACK.
  • 00:05:39.190 --> 00:05:41.100
  • IT RUNS TO HEAVEN
  • 00:05:41.100 --> 00:05:43.050
  • AND THEN RIGHT BACK.
  • 00:05:43.050 --> 00:05:45.020
  • OH, EV'RY TIME
  • 00:05:45.020 --> 00:05:46.160

  • - Gaither: BEV, I UNDERSTAND
  • 00:06:34.260 --> 00:06:35.290
  • THE FIRST SONG THAT YOU DID
  • 00:06:35.290 --> 00:06:37.170
  • ON A GRAHAM CRUSADE
  • 00:06:37.170 --> 00:06:39.000
  • WAS IN CHARLOTTE
  • 00:06:39.000 --> 00:06:40.020
  • AND IS THE OLD HYMN
  • 00:06:40.020 --> 00:06:41.050
  • I WILL SING...
  • 00:06:41.050 --> 00:06:42.030
  • - THE WONDROUS STORY.
  • 00:06:42.030 --> 00:06:43.210
  • YEAH.
  • 00:06:43.210 --> 00:06:44.130
  • AND, YOU KNOW, THAT USUALLY
  • 00:06:44.130 --> 00:06:45.250
  • IS SUNG BY CONGREGATIONS
  • 00:06:45.250 --> 00:06:47.060
  • IN MODERN TEMPO.
  • 00:06:47.060 --> 00:06:48.260
  • - Gaither: SURE.
  • 00:06:48.260 --> 00:06:49.200
  • - AND I JUST THOUGHT,
  • 00:06:49.200 --> 00:06:50.100
  • "I'M GOING TO PUT IT
  • 00:06:50.100 --> 00:06:51.040
  • ABOUT THREE OR FOUR NOTES DOWN
  • 00:06:51.040 --> 00:06:52.130
  • AND DO IT AS A BASS SOLO."
  • 00:06:52.130 --> 00:06:53.280
  • SO I SAID:
  • 00:06:53.280 --> 00:06:54.180
  • I WILL SING
  • 00:06:54.180 --> 00:06:56.210
  • THE WONDROUS STORY
  • 00:06:57.040 --> 00:07:00.060
  • OF THE CHRIST
  • 00:07:00.060 --> 00:07:01.240
  • WHO DIED FOR ME.
  • 00:07:01.240 --> 00:07:04.010
  • THAT'S THE WAY WE DID IT.
  • 00:07:04.010 --> 00:07:05.020
  • AND MOTHER GRAHAM WAS IN
  • 00:07:05.020 --> 00:07:06.120
  • THE AUDIENCE, BILLY'S MOTHER,
  • 00:07:06.120 --> 00:07:07.230
  • AND SHE HAPPENED TO LIKE
  • 00:07:07.230 --> 00:07:10.060
  • THAT ONE, AND HE, FOR YEARS,
  • 00:07:10.060 --> 00:07:12.000
  • ASKED ME TO DO THAT AGAIN.
  • 00:07:12.000 --> 00:07:14.230
  • - Gaither: AND I UNDERSTOOD
  • 00:07:14.230 --> 00:07:15.270
  • THAT SHE PRAYED FOR YOU
  • 00:07:15.270 --> 00:07:18.140
  • REGULARLY.
  • 00:07:18.140 --> 00:07:19.060
  • SHE THOUGHT YOU WERE
  • 00:07:19.060 --> 00:07:20.100
  • A VERY, VERY IMPORTANT PART.
  • 00:07:20.100 --> 00:07:21.210
  • - SHE'D GO TO THE TYPEWRITER,
  • 00:07:21.210 --> 00:07:22.280
  • LITTLE NOTES, AND WRITE TO ME
  • 00:07:22.280 --> 00:07:24.220
  • AND ENCOURAGE ME.
  • 00:07:24.220 --> 00:07:25.220
  • AND I HAD THOSE IN MY WALLET
  • 00:07:25.220 --> 00:07:27.140
  • FOR SEVERAL YEARS.
  • 00:07:27.140 --> 00:07:29.020
  • DEAR WOMAN.
  • 00:07:29.020 --> 00:07:30.080
  • - Gaither: WELL, THIS IS--
  • 00:07:30.080 --> 00:07:31.260
  • THIS IS ONE OF THE FIRST SONGS
  • 00:07:31.260 --> 00:07:33.150
  • THAT YOU SANG
  • 00:07:33.150 --> 00:07:34.210
  • AT A BILLY GRAHAM CRUSADE,
  • 00:07:34.210 --> 00:07:36.250
  • AND IT'S STILL GREAT.
  • 00:07:36.250 --> 00:07:37.260
  • LET'S LISTEN TO YOU SING IT,
  • 00:07:37.260 --> 00:07:38.230
  • OKAY?
  • 00:07:38.230 --> 00:07:39.190
  • - YES, I'LL SING
  • 00:07:39.190 --> 00:07:42.150
  • THE WONDROUS STORY
  • 00:07:43.080 --> 00:07:46.080
  • OF THE CHRIST
  • 00:07:46.080 --> 00:07:48.240
  • WHO DIED FOR ME,
  • 00:07:49.120 --> 00:07:52.120
  • SING IT WITH THE SAINTS
  • 00:07:53.030 --> 00:07:56.030
  • IN GLORY GATHERED
  • 00:07:56.190 --> 00:07:59.190
  • BY THE CRYSTAL SEA.
  • 00:08:03.070 --> 00:08:06.070
  • - Gaither: IT IS STILL
  • 00:08:06.070 --> 00:08:07.040
  • A GREAT SONG, ISN'T IT?
  • 00:08:07.040 --> 00:08:08.150
  • - OH, YES.
  • 00:08:08.150 --> 00:08:10.020
  • - Gaither: YEAH.
  • 00:08:10.020 --> 00:08:10.290
  • - YES, IT IS.
  • 00:08:10.290 --> 00:08:11.250
  • - Gaither: GOOD SONGS.
  • 00:08:11.250 --> 00:08:13.010
  • SOMEBODY ASKED ME
  • 00:08:13.010 --> 00:08:13.270
  • THE OTHER DAY, SAID,
  • 00:08:13.270 --> 00:08:14.170
  • "BILL, WHY DO YOU SING
  • 00:08:14.170 --> 00:08:15.050
  • SO MANY OLD SONGS?"
  • 00:08:15.050 --> 00:08:16.120
  • I SAID, "I DON'T SING THEM
  • 00:08:16.120 --> 00:08:18.040
  • 'CAUSE THEY'RE OLD.
  • 00:08:18.040 --> 00:08:19.050
  • I SING THEM 'CAUSE THEY'RE GREAT
  • 00:08:19.050 --> 00:08:20.220
  • AND THEY SURVIVED
  • 00:08:20.220 --> 00:08:22.000
  • AND THEY DESERVE TO SURVIVE."
  • 00:08:22.000 --> 00:08:24.070
  • AND THAT IS A GREAT SONG.
  • 00:08:24.070 --> 00:08:26.220
  • - THOSE ARE WORDS
  • 00:08:26.220 --> 00:08:27.150
  • I LIKE TO HEAR
  • 00:08:27.150 --> 00:08:28.110
  • WHEN YOU SAY THAT.
  • 00:08:28.110 --> 00:08:30.030
  • THE OLD HYMNS, THEY HAVE
  • 00:08:30.030 --> 00:08:31.110
  • LASTING QUALITY.
  • 00:08:31.110 --> 00:08:33.090
  • AMAZING GRACE.
  • 00:08:34.060 --> 00:08:37.060
  • - Gaither: IF THERE WERE
  • 00:08:37.060 --> 00:08:38.010
  • A TOP TEN HIT PARADE
  • 00:08:38.010 --> 00:08:39.140
  • OF GOSPEL SONGS
  • 00:08:39.140 --> 00:08:41.050
  • IN THE LAST 200 YEARS,
  • 00:08:41.050 --> 00:08:43.040
  • THERE'S ONE SONG
  • 00:08:43.040 --> 00:08:44.060
  • AT THE VERY TOP.
  • 00:08:44.060 --> 00:08:45.040
  • I DON'T THINK ANYBODY
  • 00:08:45.040 --> 00:08:45.290
  • WOULD ARGUE.
  • 00:08:45.290 --> 00:08:47.000
  • AMAZING GRACE,RIGHT?
  • 00:08:47.000 --> 00:08:48.110
  • - BY JOHN NEWTON, YES.
  • 00:08:48.110 --> 00:08:49.290
  • I'VE HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING
  • 00:08:49.290 --> 00:08:51.170
  • AT HIS--WHERE HE WAS PASTOR
  • 00:08:51.170 --> 00:08:53.240
  • ABOUT THREE TIMES,
  • 00:08:53.240 --> 00:08:54.290
  • JUST WALK AROUND THERE,
  • 00:08:54.290 --> 00:08:56.170
  • THE CHURCHYARD.
  • 00:08:56.170 --> 00:08:57.280
  • IN THE BACK IN THE CORNER
  • 00:08:57.280 --> 00:08:59.020
  • IS HIS GRAVE.
  • 00:08:59.020 --> 00:09:01.000
  • AND DON HOUSTON WAS WITH ME,
  • 00:09:01.000 --> 00:09:02.260
  • AND WE LOOKED IT OVER,
  • 00:09:02.260 --> 00:09:04.210
  • AND I--THERE'S--I HAPPENED
  • 00:09:04.210 --> 00:09:06.140
  • TO SEE, THROUGH SOME
  • 00:09:06.140 --> 00:09:07.090
  • TIMOTHY HAY AT THE BACK,
  • 00:09:07.090 --> 00:09:08.130
  • THIS OLD WALL THAT HAD
  • 00:09:08.130 --> 00:09:10.010
  • BEEN THERE A THOUSAND YEARS.
  • 00:09:10.010 --> 00:09:11.190
  • THERE WAS SOMETHING I READ.
  • 00:09:11.190 --> 00:09:13.180
  • "JOHN NEWTON, CLERK,
  • 00:09:13.180 --> 00:09:16.060
  • WANTON INFIDEL AND LIBERTINE,
  • 00:09:16.060 --> 00:09:18.120
  • A SERVANT OF SLAVES IN AFRICA,
  • 00:09:18.120 --> 00:09:20.170
  • WAS, BY THE RICH MERCY
  • 00:09:20.170 --> 00:09:21.240
  • OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR,
  • 00:09:21.240 --> 00:09:22.250
  • JESUS CHRIST, PRESERVED,
  • 00:09:22.250 --> 00:09:24.250
  • RESTORED, PARDONED,

  • OF THE FAITH
  • 00:09:28.070 --> 00:09:29.100
  • HE HAD LONG LABORED TO DESTROY."
  • 00:09:29.100 --> 00:09:32.060
  • WHY WASN'T THAT ON THE FRONT
  • 00:09:32.060 --> 00:09:34.020
  • OF THE STONE, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:09:34.020 --> 00:09:36.170
  • I WENT BACK HOME,
  • 00:09:36.170 --> 00:09:37.190
  • HAVING MEMORIZED IT.
  • 00:09:37.190 --> 00:09:38.210
  • AND WHEN I RECORDED
  • 00:09:38.210 --> 00:09:39.210
  • AMAZING GRACE,YOU KNOW,
  • 00:09:39.210 --> 00:09:42.110
  • I HAD THAT NARRATION
  • 00:09:42.110 --> 00:09:43.150
  • BEFORE WE SANG IT.
  • 00:09:43.150 --> 00:09:44.230
  • - Gaither: WELL, IT HAS BEEN
  • 00:09:44.230 --> 00:09:46.200
  • SUNG AND SUNG AGAIN.
  • 00:09:46.200 --> 00:09:48.050
  • WE HAVE A CLIP OF YOU SINGING IT
  • 00:09:48.050 --> 00:09:50.060
  • AT A CRUSADE IN LEXINGTON,
  • 00:09:50.060 --> 00:09:52.230
  • KENTUCKY, AT A BILLY GRAHAM
  • 00:09:52.230 --> 00:09:54.070
  • CRUSADE, AND THE CHOIR,

  • LET'S WATCH IT.
  • 00:09:56.280 --> 00:09:58.160
  • - AMAZING GRACE,
  • 00:10:01.060 --> 00:10:04.060
  • HOW SWEET THE SOUND
  • 00:10:06.120 --> 00:10:09.120
  • THAT SAVED A WRETCH
  • 00:10:11.070 --> 00:10:14.070
  • LIKE ME.
  • 00:10:15.270 --> 00:10:18.270
  • I ONCE WAS LOST
  • 00:10:20.160 --> 00:10:23.160
  • BUT NOW AM FOUND,
  • 00:10:25.080 --> 00:10:28.080
  • WAS BLIND,
  • 00:10:28.080 --> 00:10:30.210
  • BUT NOW I SEE.
  • 00:10:35.040 --> 00:10:38.040
  • - THROUGH MANY DANGERS,
  • 00:10:40.270 --> 00:10:43.270
  • TOILS, AND SNARES,
  • 00:10:44.230 --> 00:10:47.230
  • I HAVE ALREADY COME.
  • 00:10:53.280 --> 00:10:56.280
  • HIS GRACE HAS BROUGHT ME

  • AND GRACE
  • 00:11:06.150 --> 00:11:09.110
  • WILL LEAD ME HOME.
  • 00:11:13.200 --> 00:11:16.200
  • WHEN WE'VE BEEN THERE

  • TEN THOUSAND YEARS...
  • 00:11:25.230 --> 00:11:28.230
  • - WHEN WE'VE BEEN THERE

  • AS THE SUN,
  • 00:11:43.020 --> 00:11:46.020
  • WE'VE NO LESS DAYS
  • 00:11:47.240 --> 00:11:50.240
  • TO SING GOD'S PRAISE
  • 00:11:52.170 --> 00:11:55.170
  • THAN WHEN WE'VE FIRST BEGUN.
  • 00:12:03.150 --> 00:12:06.150
  • AMAZING GRACE,
  • 00:12:09.240 --> 00:12:12.240
  • SO I'LL CHERISH
  • 00:12:28.240 --> 00:12:31.060
  • THE OLD RUGGED CROSS.

  • BILL, HAVE YOU EVER MET
  • 00:12:34.280 --> 00:12:36.150
  • THE OLD COMPOSER
  • 00:12:36.150 --> 00:12:38.080
  • GEORGE BENNARD, WHO WROTE
  • 00:12:38.080 --> 00:12:40.050
  • THE OLD RUGGED CROSS?
  • 00:12:40.050 --> 00:12:41.160
  • - Gaither: NO, NO. NO.
  • 00:12:41.160 --> 00:12:43.030
  • - OH, YOU'RE TOO YOUNG.
  • 00:12:43.030 --> 00:12:44.090
  • [laughter]
  • 00:12:44.090 --> 00:12:45.170
  • BUT IN A CONFERENCE IN INDIANA
  • 00:12:45.170 --> 00:12:47.160
  • YEARS AGO--I MET HIM
  • 00:12:47.170 --> 00:12:50.170
  • SEVERAL TIMES.
  • 00:12:50.170 --> 00:12:52.060
  • WHAT A DEAR MAN.
  • 00:12:52.060 --> 00:12:53.150
  • NICE TO JUST SIT DOWN
  • 00:12:53.150 --> 00:12:54.130
  • AND TALK TO HIM.
  • 00:12:54.130 --> 00:12:55.240
  • WHEN I WAS FIVE YEARS OF AGE
  • 00:12:55.240 --> 00:12:58.040
  • IN WINCHESTER, ONTARIO,
  • 00:12:58.040 --> 00:13:00.130
  • WHERE I WAS BORN, DAD HAD
  • 00:13:00.130 --> 00:13:03.030
  • TWO PEOPLE SINGING FOR HIM
  • 00:13:03.030 --> 00:13:04.270
  • THAT WEEK IN SPECIAL MEETINGS.
  • 00:13:04.270 --> 00:13:06.130
  • AND ON SATURDAY MORNING,
  • 00:13:06.130 --> 00:13:07.200
  • A RAP ON THE DOOR.
  • 00:13:07.200 --> 00:13:08.220
  • THERE THEY WERE.
  • 00:13:08.220 --> 00:13:10.010
  • AND ONE OF THEM SAID,
  • 00:13:10.010 --> 00:13:11.050
  • "MRS. SHEA, YOU PLAY THE PIANO
  • 00:13:11.050 --> 00:13:13.060
  • SO VERY WELL.

  • WILL YOU PLEASE HELP US
  • 00:13:14.120 --> 00:13:15.150
  • TO LEARN THIS SONG THEY SAID
  • 00:13:15.150 --> 00:13:16.280
  • WAS NEW?"
  • 00:13:16.280 --> 00:13:18.220
  • THE OLD RUGGED CROSS.
  • 00:13:18.220 --> 00:13:19.260
  • - Gaither: ARE YOU SERIOUS?
  • 00:13:19.260 --> 00:13:20.230
  • - AND THEY SANG IT.
  • 00:13:20.230 --> 00:13:22.130
  • MY DAD USED TO LIKE TO TELL HOW
  • 00:13:22.130 --> 00:13:23.220
  • I STOOD AT THE END OF THE PIANO,
  • 00:13:23.220 --> 00:13:25.220
  • FIVE YEARS OLD,
  • 00:13:25.220 --> 00:13:26.200
  • MY MOUTH OPEN WIDE,
  • 00:13:26.200 --> 00:13:28.050
  • LISTENING TO THOSE GUYS.
  • 00:13:28.050 --> 00:13:29.160
  • AND HE'D SAY, "LITTLE
  • 00:13:29.160 --> 00:13:31.000
  • DID HE KNOW THAT HE'D BE SINGING
  • 00:13:31.000 --> 00:13:33.020
  • THAT SONG"--
  • 00:13:33.020 --> 00:13:34.220
  • - Gaither: TO MILLIONS.
  • 00:13:34.220 --> 00:13:36.080
  • - A FEW PEOPLE LATER ON.
  • 00:13:36.080 --> 00:13:39.010
  • - Gaither: BEV, WAS HE,
  • 00:13:39.110 --> 00:13:42.110
  • GEORGE BENNARD, WAS HE--
  • 00:13:42.110 --> 00:13:44.050
  • YOU SAY NORTHERN INDIANA.
  • 00:13:44.050 --> 00:13:45.070
  • WOULD THAT HAVE BEEN
  • 00:13:45.070 --> 00:13:46.020
  • AT THE BILLY SUNDAY TABERNACLE?
  • 00:13:46.020 --> 00:13:47.110
  • - THAT'S IT.

  • 00:22:20.020 --> 00:22:22.030
  • WITH MOTHER'S HANDWRITING
  • 00:22:22.030 --> 00:22:23.290
  • IN BIG LETTERS LIKE THIS.
  • 00:22:23.290 --> 00:22:25.130
  • "I'D RATHER HAVE JESUS
  • 00:22:25.130 --> 00:22:26.230
  • THAN SILVER OR GOLD,"
  • 00:22:26.230 --> 00:22:28.150
  • WRITTEN BY RHEA F. MILLER,
  • 00:22:28.150 --> 00:22:30.020
  • A PASTOR'S WIFE.
  • 00:22:30.020 --> 00:22:31.140
  • WAY BACK IN 1922,
  • 00:22:31.140 --> 00:22:33.030
  • THE WORDS WERE WRITTEN.
  • 00:22:33.030 --> 00:22:35.080
  • BUT I WAS 23,
  • 00:22:35.080 --> 00:22:37.100
  • SITTING AT THAT PIANO,
  • 00:22:37.100 --> 00:22:38.230
  • LOOKING AT THOSE WORDS.
  • 00:22:38.230 --> 00:22:39.270
  • AND THERE WERE CHOICES
  • 00:22:39.270 --> 00:22:41.140
  • TO BE MADE BY SOMEBODY 23.
  • 00:22:41.220 --> 00:22:44.220
  • - Gaither: IMPORTANT CHOICES.
  • 00:22:44.220 --> 00:22:46.040
  • - YES, AND I SAW THOSE WORDS,
  • 00:22:46.040 --> 00:22:48.070
  • AND I JUST GOT "B" FLAT,
  • 00:22:48.070 --> 00:22:49.290
  • AND I WENT:
  • 00:22:49.290 --> 00:22:50.270
  • I'D RATHER HAVE JESUS
  • 00:22:50.270 --> 00:22:52.220
  • THAN SILVER OR GOLD.
  • 00:22:52.250 --> 00:22:55.250
  • AND I GOT TO THE CHORUS:
  • 00:22:55.250 --> 00:22:57.100
  • "THAN TO BE THE KING
  • 00:22:57.100 --> 00:22:58.210
  • OF A VAST DOMAIN."
  • 00:22:58.210 --> 00:23:00.170
  • AND WHEN I ENDED,
  • 00:23:00.170 --> 00:23:02.020
  • MOTHER HAD TEARS IN HER EYES.
  • 00:23:02.020 --> 00:23:03.220
  • IT WAS HAVING
  • 00:23:03.220 --> 00:23:04.260
  • THE INTENDED EFFECT.
  • 00:23:04.260 --> 00:23:06.210
  • [laughter]
  • 00:23:06.210 --> 00:23:08.160
  • AND THAT SONG HAS BEEN
  • 00:23:08.160 --> 00:23:10.050
  • TRANSLATED, LIKE YOURS HAVE,
  • 00:23:10.050 --> 00:23:12.240
  • TO MANY LANGUAGES.
  • 00:23:12.240 --> 00:23:14.030
  • - Gaither: AND LONG AFTER
  • 00:23:14.030 --> 00:23:15.090
  • YOU'RE GONE FROM THIS EARTH,
  • 00:23:15.090 --> 00:23:18.050
  • THAT SONG WILL BE SUNG
  • 00:23:18.050 --> 00:23:20.040
  • NOT ONLY BY PROFESSIONAL
  • 00:23:20.040 --> 00:23:21.290
  • SINGERS, BUT IT WILL BE SUNG
  • 00:23:21.290 --> 00:23:23.070
  • BY REGULAR FOLKS.
  • 00:23:23.070 --> 00:23:24.120
  • SOMETHING HAPPENS
  • 00:23:24.120 --> 00:23:25.060
  • WHEN A CONGREGATION
  • 00:23:25.060 --> 00:23:27.110
  • CAN TAKE A SONG AND SENSE,
  • 00:23:27.110 --> 00:23:28.250
  • "THIS IS NOT ONLY
  • 00:23:28.250 --> 00:23:29.260
  • A PROFESSIONAL SINGER'S SONG;
  • 00:23:29.260 --> 00:23:31.110
  • THIS IS MY SONG.
  • 00:23:31.110 --> 00:23:32.290
  • THIS IS MY TESTIMONY."
  • 00:23:32.290 --> 00:23:34.080
  • - THANK YOU.
  • 00:23:34.080 --> 00:23:35.210
  • I'D RATHER HAVE JESUS
  • 00:23:36.230 --> 00:23:39.230

  • BY HIS NAIL-PIERCED HAND
  • 00:24:05.170 --> 00:24:08.170
  • THAN TO BE THE KING
  • 00:24:11.060 --> 00:24:14.060

  • TODAY.
  • 00:26:03.180 --> 00:26:06.180
  • - I REMEMBER BEV'S SONG
  • 00:26:06.180 --> 00:26:08.100
  • I'D RATHER HAVE JESUS.
  • 00:26:08.100 --> 00:26:09.290
  • YOU DON'T THINK OF THAT MUCH
  • 00:26:09.290 --> 00:26:11.040
  • AS A CONGREGATION SONG,
  • 00:26:11.060 --> 00:26:14.060
  • BUT WE GOT TO JAPAN,
  • 00:26:14.060 --> 00:26:16.020
  • AND WE WERE DOING SOME CONCERTS
  • 00:26:16.020 --> 00:26:17.250
  • IN PREPARATION FOR THE CRUSADE,
  • 00:26:17.250 --> 00:26:19.280
  • AND WE WENT
  • 00:26:19.280 --> 00:26:21.040
  • TO A UNIVERSITY CAMPUS.
  • 00:26:21.040 --> 00:26:23.140
  • BEV COULD TELL THE STORY BETTER
  • 00:26:23.140 --> 00:26:25.070
  • THAN I, BUT THEY HAD HIS SONG
  • 00:26:25.210 --> 00:26:28.210
  • PRINTED IN JAPANESE,
  • 00:26:28.210 --> 00:26:30.160
  • AND EVERYBODY SANG IT.
  • 00:26:30.160 --> 00:26:32.070
  • AND, OH, IT WAS SUCH A THRILL
  • 00:26:32.070 --> 00:26:34.050
  • FOR ME TO HEAR IT
  • 00:26:34.050 --> 00:26:35.270
  • AND THEN TO ENJOY IT
  • 00:26:35.270 --> 00:26:37.260
  • FOR BEV'S SAKE.
  • 00:26:37.260 --> 00:26:38.250
  • - Gaither: FOR BEV'S SAKE.
  • 00:26:38.250 --> 00:26:39.190
  • - YEAH, IT WAS JUST
  • 00:26:39.190 --> 00:26:40.210
  • A MARVELOUS EXPERIENCE FOR US.
  • 00:26:40.250 --> 00:26:43.250
  • [applause]
  • 00:26:43.250 --> 00:26:46.070
  • - Gaither: BEV, I TOLD
  • 00:26:46.070 --> 00:26:47.210
  • THIS STORY ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:26:47.210 --> 00:26:49.000
  • I HOPE IT HASN'T GOT BACK
  • 00:26:49.000 --> 00:26:50.120
  • TO YOU.
  • 00:26:50.120 --> 00:26:51.120
  • BUT WE WERE AT YOUR HOME, LIKE,
  • 00:26:51.120 --> 00:26:53.040
  • OH, TEN YEARS AGO OR SO.
  • 00:26:53.040 --> 00:26:55.110
  • AND WHEN WE GOT DONE,
  • 00:26:55.110 --> 00:26:56.180
  • YOU SAID TO ME, "BILL,
  • 00:26:56.180 --> 00:26:57.290
  • DO YOU LIKE CATFISH?"
  • 00:26:57.290 --> 00:26:59.240
  • AND I SAID, "SURE,
  • 00:26:59.240 --> 00:27:01.280
  • I LOVE CATFISH, BEV."
  • 00:27:01.280 --> 00:27:03.010
  • "WELL, I GOT A FAVORITE PLACE.
  • 00:27:03.010 --> 00:27:04.090
  • FOLLOW ME."
  • 00:27:04.090 --> 00:27:05.070
  • OF COURSE, YOU LIVE UP THE HILL.
  • 00:27:05.070 --> 00:27:06.180
  • SO I FOLLOWED YOU DOWN THE HILL.
  • 00:27:06.180 --> 00:27:08.050
  • YOU WERE GOING AROUND
  • 00:27:08.050 --> 00:27:09.030
  • THOSE TURNS PRETTY QUICKLY.
  • 00:27:09.030 --> 00:27:12.020
  • WE GOT DOWN
  • 00:27:12.020 --> 00:27:13.000
  • TO THE CATFISH PLACE.
  • 00:27:13.000 --> 00:27:14.040
  • - BILL, I WAS GOING AROUND
  • 00:27:14.040 --> 00:27:15.080
  • THOSE TURNS QUICKLY FOR YOU,
  • 00:27:15.080 --> 00:27:17.140
  • BUT YOU LIVE ON THE LEVEL
  • 00:27:17.140 --> 00:27:18.230
  • IN INDIANA, AND I WAS GOING
  • 00:27:18.230 --> 00:27:21.010
  • PROBABLY 14 MILES AN HOUR
  • 00:27:21.010 --> 00:27:22.150
  • AROUND THE TURNS.
  • 00:27:22.150 --> 00:27:23.250
  • - Gaither: I TELL THIS STORY
  • 00:27:23.250 --> 00:27:25.060
  • ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:27:25.060 --> 00:27:26.010
  • I SAID, "HE MAY BE
  • 00:27:26.010 --> 00:27:27.060
  • A GREAT PATRIARCH
  • 00:27:27.060 --> 00:27:28.210

  • MY LIFE TO THE LORD
  • 00:27:36.200 --> 00:27:37.180
  • SEVERAL TIMES."
  • 00:27:37.180 --> 00:27:38.190
  • [laughter]
  • 00:27:38.190 --> 00:27:39.160
  • - THAT MAKES A GOOD STORY.
  • 00:27:39.160 --> 00:27:40.130

  • WALKING ALONG OXFORD STREET.

  • HIS COPY TONIGHT."
  • 00:35:54.230 --> 00:35:56.070
  • BUT WE WERE ALMOST FINISHED
  • 00:35:56.070 --> 00:35:57.290
  • WITH BEING THERE
  • 00:35:57.290 --> 00:35:59.090
  • FOR THREE MONTHS,
  • 00:35:59.090 --> 00:36:00.130
  • SO CLIFF AND I DECIDED

  • THE NEXT ONE.
  • 00:36:06.020 --> 00:36:07.110
  • AND WHILE WE WERE REHEARSING IT
  • 00:36:07.110 --> 00:36:08.220
  • IN TORONTO, "OH, LORD, MY GOD,
  • 00:36:08.220 --> 00:36:11.050

  • ROLLING THUNDER."
  • 00:36:20.090 --> 00:36:22.120
  • I LOOKED AT CLIFF, AND HE WAS
  • 00:36:22.120 --> 00:36:23.190
  • KIND OF SMILING, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:36:23.190 --> 00:36:25.030
  • AND AFTERWARDS, I SAID,
  • 00:36:25.030 --> 00:36:26.070
  • "IS THAT ALL RIGHT?"
  • 00:36:26.070 --> 00:36:27.040
  • HE SAID, "YES."
  • 00:36:27.040 --> 00:36:27.280
  • BUT WE HAD TO GET IN TOUCH
  • 00:36:27.280 --> 00:36:28.240
  • WITH THE TRANSLATOR,
  • 00:36:28.240 --> 00:36:30.140
  • MR. S.K. HINE.
  • 00:36:30.140 --> 00:36:32.000
  • AND HE WASN'T TOO HAPPY
  • 00:36:32.000 --> 00:36:33.000
  • ABOUT THAT, BUT HE SAID,
  • 00:36:33.000 --> 00:36:33.290
  • "GO AHEAD," HE SAID.
  • 00:36:33.290 --> 00:36:35.020
  • - Gaither: STUART HINE.
