Bill Gaither is the superstar of Christian easy listening gospel of course and it says much for his commitment to Christian ministry that he hasn't retired years ago to count his massive royalty cheques and remember the days when half the households in America sang his songs. Today wife Gloria can still write a moving inspirational song though on this set other younger composers vie for attention. The title track, first recorded by Rich Mullins, is an excellent mid tempo number contemporarily arranged to straddle MOR/AOR, while Michael English the main voice on most of these cuts is an excellent, warm-voiced lead. Mr English has now left for a solo career with Warner Bros' gospel subsidiary. But I expect ol' Bill will find another good young lead voice.
