The Voice of my Saviour, sung by Jimmy Martin




Recorded by Jimmy Martin
Written by Raymond Long and Jimmy Martin


I heard a sweet voice so tenderly calling
Saying arise be saved evermore
I knew it must be the voice of my Saviour
For I had not heard a voice like it before

I remember one night in an old fashioned meeting
I was praying to God to redeem my poor soul
When I heard the sweet voice of my lovin' Saviour
And I started that night to make Heaven my home

I heard a sweet voice so tenderly calling
Saying arise be saved evermore
I knew it must be the voice of my Saviour
For I had not heard a voice like it before

I'm glad that I heard the voice of my Saviour
I know I'm redeemed by His wonderful grace
Someday when He calls I'll go up to Heaven
And then in that city I'll look on His Face

I heard a sweet voice so tenderly calling
Saying arise be saved evermore
I knew it must be the voice of my Saviour
For I had not heard a voice like it before

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018

Auld Lang Syne

Dedicated to Don Collins by your Family and Friends, We Miss You




Should old acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
And old Lang Syne?

For Auld Lang Syne, my dear,
For Auld Lang Syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet,
For Auld Lang Syne.

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup!
And surely I’ll buy mine!
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
For Auld Lang Syne.

For Auld Lang Syne, my dear,
For Auld Lang Syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet,
For Auld Lang Syne

We two have run about the slopes,
And picked the daisies fine;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
Since Auld Lang Syne.

For Auld Lang Syne, my dear,
For Auld Lang Syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet,
For Auld Lang Syne.

We two have paddled in the stream,
From morning sun till dine;
But seas between us broad have roared
Since Auld Lang Syne.

For Auld Lang Syne, my dear,
For Auld Lang Syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet,
For Auld Lang Syne.

And there’s a hand my trusty friend!
And give me a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
For Auld Lang Syne.

For Auld Lang Syne, my dear,
For Auld Lang Syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet,
For Auld Lang Syne.

Old Fashioned Christmas sung by Jimmy Martin




I can see the holly in the window
Decorations on the tree
Stockings hung by the fireplace
Hung there with tenderness and glee
Soon old santa will be coming
There'll be lots of presents neath the tree
Back home at this old fashion Christmas
The whole family will make it complete

Yes this time of year is rather special to me
When the snow whitens the mountains
The valleys and the trees
Memories form a picture in my mind from days of old
Of an old fashion Christmas
And the family together back at home
I can see my sisters and my brothers, John & Roy
Everyone so happy and all so full of joy

Daddy and mother admire each one of us so dear
And the children are playing together
And all of them so full of cheer
Yes this memory of home in my heart
Is a memory that time will never take away
Because it lives all over again each year on Christmas day

So let me say to you,
If you are home or faraway
I hope you'll have an old fashion Christmas
And a Happy New Year's Day

Soon old santa will be coming
There'll be lots of presents neath the tree
Back home at this old fashion Christmas
The whole family will make it complete

A Blessed and Joyous Christmas to All


                                        MERRY CHRISTMAS

Joy to the World 

Sung by Dolly Parton




Joy to the world the Lord is come let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare him room
And Heaven and nature sing and heaven and nature sing
And Heaven and heaven and nature sing

Joy to the world the Savior reigns let men their songs employ
While fields and floods rocks hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy

Joy to the world the Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare him room
And Heaven and nature sing and Heaven and nature sing
And Heaven and nature sing

He rules the world with truth and grace and makes the nation prove
The glories of his Righteousness
And wonders of his love and wonders of his love
And wonders wonders of his love

Joy to the world the Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare him room
And Heaven and nature sing and Heaven and nature sing
And Heaven and Heaven and nature sing

And Heaven and Heaven and nature sing
And Heaven and Heaven and nature sing............

O Holy Night sung by John Berry




O Holy Night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the Soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope the weary soul rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees, oh hear the Angels' voices
O Night Divine, oh night when Christ was born
O Night Divine, Oh night...oh night divine

Led by the light of a faith serenely beaming
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand
So led by a light of a star sweetly gleaming
Here came the wise men from Orient land

The King of Kings lay in lowly manger
With all our trials, born to be our friend
He knows our needs, to our weakness no stranger
Behold Your King, before the lowly bend
Behold Your King, Your King, before him bend

A thrill of hope, the weary soul rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees, oh hear the Angels' voices
O Night Divine, O Night when Christ was born
O Night Divine, O Night, Oh Night Divine

Beautiful Star of Bethlehem

Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys

Dedicated to my precious friend, Janet Crain, Merry Christmas!



Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem
Shining afar through shadows dim
Giving a light for those who long have gone
And guiding the wise men on their way
Unto the place where Jesus lay
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem shine on, Shine On.....

Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem (Star of Bethlehem)
Shine upon us until the glory dawns.
Give us the light to guide the way
Unto the land of perfect day
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem, shine on, Shine on

Oh Beautiful Star the hope of light
Guiding the pilgrims through the night
Over the mountains till the break of dawn, of dawn
Into the light of perfect day
It will give out a lovely ray
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem shine on (shine on, shine on

Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem (Star of Bethlehem)
Shine upon us until the glory dawns
Give us the light to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem, Shine On, Shine On

Oh Beautiful Star the hope of rest
Father Redeem the Good and Blest
Yonder in Glory when the crown is won, is won
For Jesus is now that star divine
Brighter and brighter he will shine
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem Shine On, Shine on

Oh Beautiful Star (Beautiful, Beautiful Star) of Bethlehem
Shine upon us until the glory dawns
Give us the light to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem Shine On, Shine On........

Silent Night

Sung by Kelly Clarkson, Trisha Yearwood and Reba McEntire




Silent night, Holy night,
All is calm, all is bright.
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child.
Holy Infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in Heavenly peace,
Sleep in Heavenly peace

Silent night, Holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glory streams from Heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
Christ the Savior is born!
Christ the Savior is born

Silent night, holy night,
Son of God love's pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy Holy face
With the dawn of Redeeming Grace,
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

Silent Night, Holy Night,
All is calm and all is bright
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in Heavenly Peace, Sleep in Heavenly Peace........

Singing His Praise

Kitty Wells and Johnny Wright




Since my soul has been redeemed since from sin I am made clean
I'm singing his praise along the way
From my sins he sets me free when I'm sad he comforts me
I'm singing his praise along the way
Happy his praise I'd gladly sing, serving him now my Saviour king
Oh, Hallelujah, I'm singing his praise along the way

Come my friends and go with me someday soon my Lord I'll see
I'm singing his praise along the way
If you call on God today he will not turn you away
I'm singing his praise along the way
Happy his praise I'd gladly sing, serving him now my Saviour King
Oh, Hallelujah, I'm singing his praise along the way

While down here on earth below I keep singing as I go
I'm singing his praise along the way
When life here for me shall end up in Heaven it'll just begin
I'm singing his praise along the way
(Happy his praise I'd gladly sing, serving him now my Saviour King
Oh, Hallelujah, I'm singing his praise along the way
I'm singing his praise along the way
I'm singing his praise along the way

When I Wake Up to Sleep No More

Ralph Stanley and friends




What a glad thought some wonderful morning

Just to hear Gabriel's trumpet sound

When I wake up when I wake up

To sleep no more (to sleep no more)


Rising to meet our blessed redeemer

With a glad shout I'll leave the ground

When I wake up (when I wake up)

To sleep no more (to sleep no more)


When I wake up some glad morning

To sleep no more jewels adorning

How happy I'll be over in glory

On the beautiful shore telling the story


With the redeemed of all the ages

Praising the one who I adore

When I wake up (when I wake up)

To sleep no more (to sleep no more)


Glory to God I'll have a new body

Changed in a twinkling of an eye

When I wake up (when I wake up)

To sleep no more (to sleep no more)


Leaving behind all troubles and trials

Bound for the city up on high

When I wake up (when I wake up)

To sleep no more (to sleep no more)


When I wake up, some glad morning

To sleep no more, jewels adorning

How happy I'll be, over in Glory

On the beautiful shore, telling the story


With the Redeemed of all ages

Praising the one who I adore

When I wake up (when I wake up)

To sleep no more (to sleep no more)

Seven Hillsides sung by Ricky Skaggs




All night I've wrestled Jacob's angels
And prayed with Matthew, Luke and John
Struggling to find the words to face the task
That comes upon the blood red dawn.

I've buried men before their time
Of alcohol and blackened lung
But how to bury seven of these
Appalachian miners sons.
Who stormed the beaches wave on wave,
And sailed home to these rocky graves
In family plots that bared their names.

Tomorrow I'll walk up, seven hillsides
Tremble before my flock on seven hillsides
Seven sorrows, seven sons, seven mothers and every one
Will turn to me for the Word of God, what does this mean?
And there I'll stand Good Book in hand,
A shepherd to these precious lambs
What will I say, what will I say, what can I say?

To tell the truth I'd never thought much
About the will of God before.
Called to preach at seventeen
I was in love with fiery words and not much more.
The time has come to keep the faith
For others shattered by their loss.
Remind them of the loving God
Whose son like theirs paid the cost.
To save a sad and wicked world
Through sacrifice our love is heard
And pray that I believe those words.

Tomorrow I'll walk up, seven hillsides
Tremble before my flock on seven hillsides
Seven sorrows, seven sons, seven mothers and every one
Will turn to me for the word of God, what does this mean?
And there I'll stand Good Book in hand,
A shepherd to these precious lambs
What will I say, what will I say, what can I say?
