Dr. Bill Burr
December 23, 1935 - June 28, 2008
This is probably my favorite time he sang this song. I love the emotion in which he sings. I also love when he stops mid verse and talks about his Savior, Jesus Christ.
This is one of the reasons why I am so grateful to Bro. Donnie Farmer for sending these tapes to me. For in them, I am finding treasurers I never knew existed. I have never heard my Grandfather sing this song, and now I am glad I have because it is excellent.
Also, it is great to hear him stop in the middle and talk about it. He says that one of the things he always hoped for is that he would never lose his song, and I can tell you that he never lost it! You can watch the video I posted of the last time he sang in church and you will see that he never lost it!
The audio on this one was not perfect but it doesn't have to be in this case. Enjoy this great song.
The Payne Family was very dear to Bro. Burr. He loved them and he love their music. This post is the 1st part of 2 and in both of these you will hear for yourself why The Payne Family is one of the best gospel singing families of all time. Also, after the first song, right around the 2:25 minute mark you will hear a great tribute spoken about my grandfather, Bill Burr by one of the members of the Payne Family.
