Sweet Jesus (Doris Akers)

The first time I heard this was in the summer of 1994. I was a summer music minister at the First Baptist Church of Old Homosassa, FL. One of the senior adult members there, Mr. Munn, let me borrow this VHS tape. It was the first Gaither Homecoming tape. Many of these singers were struggling to make ends meet when Bill Gaither brought them together. They were reintroduced to the public and ended not only financially sound but with some dignity.Here is Doris Akers (composer of “Sweet, Sweet Spirit”) singing “Sweet Jesus.”
