“The Lord is my light, and my salvation—
whom should I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life
— of whom should I be afraid?”
JESUS, THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
“Your word is a lamp for my fee and a light for my path.
The true light that gives light to every man was coming into
the world. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men
…I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me
Will never walk in darkness,but will have the light of life.”
Every man, woman or child who has ever taken a breath on Planet Earth has been invited by the Creator to join all who have walked in the footsteps of Christ in the future “Grand Reunion” planned by God.
Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth and the life.”
The rich musical tone and stirring text of “By and By”, a gospel sermon in song, highlights the God-given talent of genius composer, Charles Albert Tindley. Born in 1851’s pre-Civil War Maryland, son of a slave father and a free mother, this self-educated master musician left a long trail of “spirituals” that include stand-outs like “Nothing Between My Soul and My Savior” and “When the Storms of Life are Raging, Stand by Me”.
