  • Bill Gaither: Life is made up of moments...
  • 00:00:08.050 --> 00:00:11.170
  • ... like turning the pages of a photograph album.
  • 00:00:11.180 --> 00:00:14.080
  • Our memories preserve for us the relationships...
  • 00:00:14.090 --> 00:00:16.270
  • ... and events that tell the stories of each of our lives.
  • 00:00:16.280 --> 00:00:21.240
  • Happy, sad, joyful, and painful.
  • 00:00:21.250 --> 00:00:25.090

  • How they ever flood my soul
  • 00:00:44.240 --> 00:00:57.290
  • Bill Gaither: An unforgettable memory was made when dozens of friends...
  • 00:00:58.000 --> 00:01:01.140
  • ... who had spent their lives in gospel music...
  • 00:01:01.150 --> 00:01:03.200

  • For these folks, many precious memories...
  • 00:01:09.000 --> 00:01:11.290
  • ... had begun around a piano somewhere.

  • 00:01:13.280 --> 00:01:17.290

  • all: "The blind man.
  • 00:01:41.120 --> 00:01:42.160

  • Hey, it's good to be back home again.

  • that have influenced their music
  • 00:02:09.090 --> 00:02:10.240
  • and shaped their lives.
  • 00:02:10.250 --> 00:02:12.060
  • Do you know?
  • 00:02:12.070 --> 00:02:13.170

  • to a Cajun hideaway.
  • 00:02:39.060 --> 00:02:42.020
  • 00:02:42.030 --> 00:02:43.260
  • - Drift away like Tom Sawyer.
  • 00:02:43.270 --> 00:02:47.230

  • 00:03:18.080 --> 00:03:25.090
  • - Swim across the river
  • 00:03:37.190 --> 00:03:41.090
  • just to prove that I'm a man.
  • 00:03:41.100 --> 00:03:45.160
  • Spend the day bein' lazy,
  • 00:03:45.170 --> 00:03:50.020
  • just bein' nature's friend.
  • 00:03:50.030 --> 00:03:54.260
  • Climb a long, tall hickory,
  • 00:03:54.270 --> 00:03:58.050
  • bending over, skinnin' cats.
  • 00:03:58.060 --> 00:04:02.240
  • Playing baseball with chert rocks,
  • 00:04:02.250 --> 00:04:07.090
  • using sawmill slats for bats.
  • 00:04:07.100 --> 00:04:11.220
  • Yeah, yeah.
  • 00:04:11.230 --> 00:04:13.190
  • Play some back-home, come-on music...
  • 00:04:13.200 --> 00:04:18.000
  • - That comes from the heart.
  • 00:04:18.010 --> 00:04:22.070

  • 00:04:45.200 --> 00:04:49.140
  • Hey, hey.
  • 00:04:49.150 --> 00:04:53.240
  • 00:04:53.250 --> 00:05:00.260
  • [cheers and applause]
  • 00:05:00.270 --> 00:05:02.220
  • 00:05:02.230 --> 00:05:09.240
  • Oh, play me mountain music.
  • 00:05:11.190 --> 00:05:14.180
  • Oh, play me mountain music.
  • 00:05:14.190 --> 00:05:17.230
  • Oh, play me mountain music.
  • 00:05:17.240 --> 00:05:20.230
  • Oh, play.
  • 00:05:20.240 --> 00:05:24.100
  • 00:05:24.110 --> 00:05:31.120
  • [cheers and applause]
  • 00:05:42.050 --> 00:05:44.060
  • - Yeah!
  • 00:05:44.070 --> 00:05:45.240
  • - How about that band?
  • 00:05:48.090 --> 00:05:50.050
  • - How about the band? - Yeah, boys!
  • 00:05:50.060 --> 00:05:53.020
  • - Man, that is a lot of fun.
  • 00:05:53.030 --> 00:05:56.070
  • What are the lines?
  • 00:05:56.080 --> 00:05:57.070
  • "Gonna play baseball,
  • 00:05:57.080 --> 00:05:58.140
  • gonna swim across the river just to" what?
  • 00:05:58.150 --> 00:06:00.240
  • - "Prove that I'm a man."
  • 00:06:00.250 --> 00:06:02.080
  • [laughter]
  • 00:06:02.090 --> 00:06:03.100
  • Whatever it takes, man.
  • 00:06:03.110 --> 00:06:04.100
  • [laughter]
  • 00:06:04.110 --> 00:06:05.260
  • - That sounds like where I grew up
  • 00:06:05.270 --> 00:06:07.260
  • and, I think, probably where you grew up, right?
  • 00:06:07.270 --> 00:06:10.090
  • - Oh, yeah. - Well, Bill, we used to get up
  • 00:06:10.100 --> 00:06:11.290
  • on those cold Indiana mornings...
  • 00:06:12.000 --> 00:06:14.070
  • [laughter]
  • 00:06:14.080 --> 00:06:15.070
  • - [indistinct]
  • 00:06:15.080 --> 00:06:16.220
  • We're gonna milk the cows.
  • 00:06:16.230 --> 00:06:18.160
  • [laughter]
  • 00:06:18.170 --> 00:06:19.290
  • It's just life stuff, isn't it? - It's just real.
  • 00:06:20.000 --> 00:06:22.100
  • That's what these songs paint the picture of so well.
  • 00:06:22.110 --> 00:06:25.110
  • It's just real life, day-to-day life.
  • 00:06:25.120 --> 00:06:27.050
  • - You know, when Jesus said, "I've come to give you life
  • 00:06:27.060 --> 00:06:30.100
  • and make it more abundant,"
  • 00:06:30.110 --> 00:06:32.130
  • you know, I believe it,
  • 00:06:32.140 --> 00:06:33.170
  • and music was so much a part of it,
  • 00:06:33.180 --> 00:06:35.050
  • and in my home-- I don't know about your home--
  • 00:06:35.060 --> 00:06:38.020
  • it was country and gospel stuff.
  • 00:06:38.030 --> 00:06:40.050
  • - Yup, - Oh, yeah.
  • 00:06:40.060 --> 00:06:41.060
  • - All the way. - All day long.
  • 00:06:41.070 --> 00:06:42.070
  • - It was so much fun until Mom
  • 00:06:42.080 --> 00:06:44.010
  • would get out the "Old Shep" song
  • 00:06:44.020 --> 00:06:46.250
  • and go through all of those verses about loving the dog,
  • 00:06:46.260 --> 00:06:50.210
  • and then the day came where...
  • 00:06:50.220 --> 00:06:54.110
  • he couldn't make it anymore.
  • 00:06:54.120 --> 00:06:55.250
  • - Shep was gone. - And Shep--
  • 00:06:55.260 --> 00:06:58.120
  • That was my life, though.
  • 00:06:58.130 --> 00:07:00.040
  • - Yup. It's real life.
  • 00:07:00.050 --> 00:07:01.220
  • - Well, yeah, it's just real life.
  • 00:07:01.230 --> 00:07:04.160
  • So that's the reason you're doing these songs.
  • 00:07:04.170 --> 00:07:08.190
  • Anybody--any gospel singer who says,
  • 00:07:08.200 --> 00:07:11.060
  • "I have spent all of my time all my life
  • 00:07:11.070 --> 00:07:13.280
  • listening to nothing but gospel songs,"
  • 00:07:13.290 --> 00:07:16.160
  • is probably not telling totally the whole truth, right?
  • 00:07:16.170 --> 00:07:19.140
  • - Not totally. - Not quite.
  • 00:07:19.150 --> 00:07:20.280
  • - And you know what, Bill?
  • 00:07:20.290 --> 00:07:22.070
  • The gospel is often the lens you look through.
  • 00:07:22.080 --> 00:07:24.160
  • You can find the gospel. - Absolutely.
  • 00:07:24.170 --> 00:07:27.100
  • Since the last time we've been in this room,
  • 00:07:27.110 --> 00:07:29.130
  • you got a new brother.
  • 00:07:29.140 --> 00:07:30.230
  • - We do. - Yeah.
  • 00:07:30.240 --> 00:07:31.240
  • - Yeah. - We got one.
  • 00:07:31.250 --> 00:07:33.070
  • Jim Brady was with us almost 13 years, and...
  • 00:07:33.080 --> 00:07:35.190
  • Bill: Yeah, he said he got sick of you.
  • 00:07:35.200 --> 00:07:37.100
  • [laughter]
  • 00:07:37.110 --> 00:07:40.180
  • - He asked for a raise, and we...
  • 00:07:40.190 --> 00:07:42.160
  • [laughter] - "Now you're pushing it, man."
  • 00:07:42.170 --> 00:07:44.090
  • - There's some things you don't even have to pray about.
  • 00:07:44.100 --> 00:07:46.180
  • [laughter]
  • 00:07:46.190 --> 00:07:47.260
  • No, he was great. - Yeah.
  • 00:07:47.270 --> 00:07:49.070
  • - He and his wife, Melissa, are singing together,
  • 00:07:49.080 --> 00:07:51.040
  • and they're doing great.
  • 00:07:51.050 --> 00:07:52.240
  • Bill: You know what I call that?
  • 00:07:52.250 --> 00:07:54.050
  • A win-win situation. - Oh, absolutely.
  • 00:07:54.060 --> 00:07:56.280
  • - It came time where he wanted to do something on his own
  • 00:07:56.290 --> 00:07:59.190
  • and, secondly, and do it with his wife.
  • 00:07:59.200 --> 00:08:02.170
  • - Very--and they're doing well.
  • 00:08:02.180 --> 00:08:04.010
  • Here's a little trivia for you.
  • 00:08:04.020 --> 00:08:05.280
  • When we hired Jim, what we didn't--
  • 00:08:05.290 --> 00:08:08.210
  • at that time, he was actually singing with his wife
  • 00:08:08.220 --> 00:08:11.190
  • and Paul Lancaster. - Ah.
  • 00:08:11.200 --> 00:08:13.090
  • - They were a group called True North.
  • 00:08:13.100 --> 00:08:15.070
  • - Right. - And they were--
  • 00:08:15.080 --> 00:08:16.200
  • had played a large role
  • 00:08:16.210 --> 00:08:18.010
  • in encouraging Jim to take the job.
  • 00:08:18.020 --> 00:08:20.130
  • Paul drove him from Cincinnati--in that area--
  • 00:08:20.140 --> 00:08:24.000
  • dropped him off at the arena in Nashville
  • 00:08:24.010 --> 00:08:26.080
  • when we were singing with you.
  • 00:08:26.090 --> 00:08:27.210
  • Paul: They really got to know me
  • 00:08:27.220 --> 00:08:28.270
  • through my friendship with Jim,
  • 00:08:28.280 --> 00:08:30.290
  • and it's been a blessing ever since.
  • 00:08:31.000 --> 00:08:32.200
  • Jim and I have been longtime friends,
  • 00:08:32.210 --> 00:08:34.090
  • probably going on 30 years.
  • 00:08:34.100 --> 00:08:35.280
  • - Yeah. - And he--
  • 00:08:35.290 --> 00:08:38.140
  • we always knew that his desire--
  • 00:08:38.150 --> 00:08:41.050
  • even though he loved being a Booth Brother,
  • 00:08:41.060 --> 00:08:42.230
  • we always knew his desire was to sing with his wife, Melissa,
  • 00:08:42.240 --> 00:08:46.040
  • and she needs to--because she's got incredible talent,
  • 00:08:46.050 --> 00:08:47.250
  • incredible voice, and so she needs to be out here.
  • 00:08:47.260 --> 00:08:50.280
  • So we knew one day, that would happen,
  • 00:08:50.290 --> 00:08:52.120
  • and when they did, I mean, even my wife
  • 00:08:52.130 --> 00:08:55.280
  • had specifically prayed,
  • 00:08:55.290 --> 00:08:58.050
  • and I had always desired, too, that if--
  • 00:08:58.060 --> 00:09:01.000
  • we didn't know when Jim and Melissa
  • 00:09:01.010 --> 00:09:02.090
  • were gonna make that decision.
  • 00:09:02.100 --> 00:09:03.120
  • When they did, I would love to be here.
  • 00:09:03.130 --> 00:09:05.250
  • So this is an answer to a specific prayer
  • 00:09:05.260 --> 00:09:08.060
  • of my family to be--
  • 00:09:08.070 --> 00:09:09.110
  • It's a gift. It's a gift.
  • 00:09:09.120 --> 00:09:10.250
  • 'Cause the Lord's got a way of showing you--
  • 00:09:10.260 --> 00:09:12.020
  • when you think that your best days are behind you,
  • 00:09:12.030 --> 00:09:15.010

  • So they saw their name on a Kleenex box,
  • 00:19:30.160 --> 00:19:33.030
  • Statler Kleenex.
  • 00:19:33.040 --> 00:19:34.210

  • - Tissue. Statler tissue.
  • 00:19:37.160 --> 00:19:39.140
  • - Statler tissue.

  • [laughter]
  • 00:19:42.130 --> 00:19:43.290

  • the Kleenex Brothers,
  • 00:19:45.190 --> 00:19:46.220
  • they wouldn't get much traction either.

  • - So you're saying he blew the tissue story, right?
  • 00:19:49.120 --> 00:19:51.100

  • 00:20:33.270 --> 00:20:36.110
  • I leaned down and listened
  • 00:20:36.120 --> 00:20:39.000
  • to the request that she made.
  • 00:20:39.010 --> 00:20:43.120
  • - Do you know?
  • 00:20:43.130 --> 00:20:44.230
  • all: "Do you know 'You Are My Sunshine'?"
  • 00:20:44.240 --> 00:20:48.030
  • she asked so sweet and tenderly.
  • 00:20:48.040 --> 00:20:52.080
  • - Do you know?
  • 00:20:52.090 --> 00:20:53.190
  • all: "Do you know 'You Are My Sunshine'?
  • 00:20:53.200 --> 00:20:57.080
  • And would you do it one more time for me?"
  • 00:20:57.090 --> 00:21:02.100
  • both: Border to border and ocean to ocean,
  • 00:21:02.110 --> 00:21:06.220
  • I still look for her everyplace.
  • 00:21:06.230 --> 00:21:11.290
  • - Chasing the sunshine each and every night,
  • 00:21:12.000 --> 00:21:15.220
  • I'm searching every crowd for her face.
  • 00:21:15.230 --> 00:21:20.120
  • both: She was gone just as quick
  • 00:21:20.130 --> 00:21:22.210
  • as the song that she asked for,
  • 00:21:22.220 --> 00:21:25.210
  • taking my sunshine away.
  • 00:21:25.220 --> 00:21:30.070
  • - But someday when I finally look down and see her,
  • 00:21:30.080 --> 00:21:34.250
  • I know just what I'm gonna say.
  • 00:21:34.260 --> 00:21:39.010
  • - Do you know?

  • similar--similar in that Jim Murray,
  • 00:22:52.090 --> 00:22:54.090
  • the great Imperial tenor singer,
  • 00:22:54.100 --> 00:22:56.090
  • he was a world-renowned cowbellist.
  • 00:22:56.100 --> 00:22:59.280
  • - Mm-hmm.
  • 00:22:59.290 --> 00:23:01.060
  • - I mean, there's not many of them in the world,
  • 00:23:01.070 --> 00:23:02.280
  • and he was one of the--
  • 00:23:02.290 --> 00:23:04.070
  • one of the greatest ever.
  • 00:23:04.080 --> 00:23:05.200

  • 00:23:05.210 --> 00:23:07.180
  • that we're gonna implement into this song,
  • 00:23:07.190 --> 00:23:10.100
  • so if you would like to--
  • 00:23:10.110 --> 00:23:11.100
  • - You've heard about it.
  • 00:23:11.110 --> 00:23:12.230

  • - Isaacs. - Yeah.
  • 00:23:25.120 --> 00:23:26.270
  • And it's just a simple little thing.
  • 00:23:26.280 --> 00:23:28.080
  • It's a... Boom, boom, boom, boom.
  • 00:23:28.090 --> 00:23:30.280
  • And it doesn't seem like much.
  • 00:23:30.290 --> 00:23:33.090

  • [laughter]
  • 00:23:38.100 --> 00:23:40.290
  • - But it's like the body of Christ, you know.
  • 00:23:41.000 --> 00:23:44.260
  • The elbow does not say to the knee,
  • 00:23:44.270 --> 00:23:49.020
  • "I don't need you, knee."
  • 00:23:49.030 --> 00:23:51.140

  • What church do you go to, man?
  • 00:23:54.290 --> 00:23:58.050
  • - But see, when you put the knee and the elbow
  • 00:23:58.060 --> 00:24:01.040
  • and the arm and all the different parts of the--
  • 00:24:01.050 --> 00:24:03.140
  • the "boom, boom" may not sound much
  • 00:24:03.150 --> 00:24:07.060
  • by itself,
  • 00:24:07.070 --> 00:24:08.270
  • but, boy, you put it with--

  • What's that little thing you do in the--
  • 00:24:15.040 --> 00:24:16.090
  • - It's a little different. - Yeah, it's--
  • 00:24:16.100 --> 00:24:18.090
  • [laughter]
  • 00:24:18.100 --> 00:24:19.190

  • all: Hey, it's good to be back home again.
  • 00:41:12.170 --> 00:41:18.110
  • 00:41:18.120 --> 00:41:21.060
  • Sometimes this old farm
  • 00:41:21.070 --> 00:41:24.120
  • feels like a long-lost friend.
  • 00:41:24.130 --> 00:41:27.260
  • Yes, and hey, it's good
  • 00:41:27.270 --> 00:41:30.210

  • - There's all the news to tell him.
  • 00:41:36.220 --> 00:41:41.150
  • How'd you spend your time?
  • 00:41:41.160 --> 00:41:45.250
  • What's the latest thing

  • the neighbors say?
  • 00:41:48.200 --> 00:41:51.180
  • 00:41:51.190 --> 00:41:53.070
  • And your mother called last Friday.
  • 00:41:53.080 --> 00:41:57.220
  • Sunshine made her cry.
  • 00:41:57.230 --> 00:42:01.060
  • And you felt the baby move
  • 00:42:01.070 --> 00:42:04.140
  • just yesterday.
  • 00:42:04.150 --> 00:42:07.170
  • 00:42:07.180 --> 00:42:09.280
  • all: Hey, it's good to be back home again.
  • 00:42:09.290 --> 00:42:15.250
  • 00:42:15.260 --> 00:42:18.190
  • Sometimes this old farm

  • 00:42:32.190 --> 00:42:34.040
  • - And, oh, the time that I can lay
  • 00:42:34.050 --> 00:42:38.060
  • this tired old body down,

  • just spending time with you.

  • all: Sometimes this old farm
  • 00:43:48.290 --> 00:43:52.080

  • to be back home again.
  • 00:43:58.130 --> 00:44:02.270
  • - Sing it with us.
  • 00:44:02.280 --> 00:44:04.260
  • all: Hey, it's good to be back home again.
  • 00:44:04.270 --> 00:44:09.260
  • - You know it is.
  • 00:44:09.270 --> 00:44:13.150
  • all: Sometimes this old farm
  • 00:44:13.160 --> 00:44:16.180
  • feels like a long-lost friend.
  • 00:44:16.190 --> 00:44:20.060
  • Yes, and hey, it's good
  • 00:44:20.070 --> 00:44:23.000
  • to be back home again.
  • 00:44:23.010 --> 00:44:28.090
  • - I said...
  • 00:44:28.100 --> 00:44:29.130
  • all: Hey, it's good
  • 00:44:29.140 --> 00:44:31.090
  • to be back home again.
  • 00:44:31.100 --> 00:44:38.130
  • - [laughs] Yeah!
  • 00:44:38.140 --> 00:44:40.190
  • [cheers and applause]
  • 00:44:40.200 --> 00:44:43.070
  • I love that! [laughs]
  • 00:44:46.000 --> 00:44:49.060
  • - Whoo! All right!
  • 00:44:49.070 --> 00:44:50.060
  • - Good singing, y'all.
  • 00:44:50.070 --> 00:44:51.180
  • - You know, one of the first emotions God felt
  • 00:44:52.210 --> 00:44:56.290
  • after He created all the heavens and the earth
  • 00:44:57.000 --> 00:45:00.180
  • and the animals and everything...
  • 00:45:00.190 --> 00:45:02.180
  • Loneliness.
  • 00:45:04.220 --> 00:45:07.120
  • - Never thought about that. True.
  • 00:45:07.130 --> 00:45:09.180
  • - That's pretty amazing. - Mm-hmm.
  • 00:45:09.190 --> 00:45:12.050
  • - God even felt lonely.
  • 00:45:12.060 --> 00:45:15.170
  • We love to quote those positive scriptures of David, you know.
  • 00:45:15.180 --> 00:45:20.080
  • "O God, You're great. You're fant--
  • 00:45:20.090 --> 00:45:21.260
  • Bless the Lord."
  • 00:45:21.270 --> 00:45:23.060
  • That's only about 10% of the psalms.
  • 00:45:23.070 --> 00:45:25.240
  • 90%, it's, "O God,
  • 00:45:25.250 --> 00:45:29.270
  • where are You?" - Yes.
  • 00:45:29.280 --> 00:45:30.270
  • - "I'm so lonesome."
  • 00:45:30.280 --> 00:45:32.140
  • So Hank Williams was not the first person...
  • 00:45:32.150 --> 00:45:35.100
  • - Right.
  • 00:45:35.110 --> 00:45:36.200
  • - To write about loneliness.
  • 00:45:36.210 --> 00:45:38.130
  • Gloria and I often use this
  • 00:45:38.140 --> 00:45:40.290
  • in songwriter's clinics,
  • 00:45:41.000 --> 00:45:44.140
  • one of the greatest lyrics with music
  • 00:45:44.150 --> 00:45:47.070
  • that we have ever, ever heard.
  • 00:45:47.080 --> 00:45:49.030
  • I mean, the imagery in this.
  • 00:45:49.040 --> 00:45:51.240
  • "The silence of a fallen star
  • 00:45:51.250 --> 00:45:55.070
  • lights up the purple sky."
  • 00:45:55.080 --> 00:45:57.080
  • - "Purple sky."
  • 00:45:57.090 --> 00:45:58.100
  • - And the poor guy is saying,
  • 00:45:58.110 --> 00:46:00.100
  • "And as I wonder where you are,
  • 00:46:00.110 --> 00:46:04.050
  • "I'm so lonesome,
  • 00:46:04.060 --> 00:46:05.240
  • I could cry."
  • 00:46:05.250 --> 00:46:07.080
  • - Hmm. - I don't think
  • 00:46:07.090 --> 00:46:08.240
  • a greater song about loneliness has ever, ever been written.
  • 00:46:08.250 --> 00:46:12.030
  • And yes, the critics will say,
  • 00:46:12.040 --> 00:46:13.160
  • "Well, from a Christian perspective,
  • 00:46:13.170 --> 00:46:15.280
  • but there's no answer to it."
  • 00:46:15.290 --> 00:46:17.080
  • Yes, there is an answer to it.
  • 00:46:17.090 --> 00:46:19.280
  • He also wrote "I Saw the Light."
  • 00:46:19.290 --> 00:46:22.050
  • "I saw the light, praise the Lord."
  • 00:46:22.060 --> 00:46:24.010
  • Finally he saw the light. - Yeah.
  • 00:46:24.020 --> 00:46:26.070
  • - But at least in this song,
  • 00:46:26.080 --> 00:46:29.040
  • he's pouring his heart out.
  • 00:46:29.050 --> 00:46:30.200
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:46:30.210 --> 00:46:31.200
  • [soft music]
  • 00:46:31.210 --> 00:46:34.020
  • - Can't you hear
  • 00:46:34.030 --> 00:46:37.020
  • that lonesome
  • 00:46:37.030 --> 00:46:40.200
  • whip-poor-will?
  • 00:46:40.210 --> 00:46:45.240
  • He sounds too blue
  • 00:46:45.250 --> 00:46:51.180
  • to fly.
  • 00:46:51.190 --> 00:46:54.150
  • 00:46:54.160 --> 00:46:57.020
  • The midnight train
  • 00:46:57.030 --> 00:47:03.010
  • is winding low.
  • 00:47:03.020 --> 00:47:07.270
  • And I'm so lonesome,
  • 00:47:07.280 --> 00:47:11.270
  • I could cry.
  • 00:47:11.280 --> 00:47:18.160
  • 00:47:18.170 --> 00:47:25.030
  • Did you ever see
  • 00:47:25.040 --> 00:47:31.050
  • a robin weep
  • 00:47:31.060 --> 00:47:36.180
  • when he's began
  • 00:47:36.190 --> 00:47:42.110
  • to die?
  • 00:47:42.120 --> 00:47:45.270
  • 00:47:45.280 --> 00:47:47.280
  • It means he's lost
  • 00:47:47.290 --> 00:47:53.220
  • his will to live.
  • 00:47:53.230 --> 00:47:58.260
  • And I'm so lonesome,
  • 00:47:58.270 --> 00:48:02.230
  • I could cry.
  • 00:48:02.240 --> 00:48:09.010
  • 00:48:09.020 --> 00:48:16.020
  • both: Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh.
  • 00:48:16.270 --> 00:48:24.210
  • 00:48:24.220 --> 00:48:27.230
  • - The silence
  • 00:48:27.240 --> 00:48:31.190
  • of a falling star
  • 00:48:31.200 --> 00:48:39.090
  • lights up
  • 00:48:39.100 --> 00:48:41.280
  • the purple sky.
  • 00:48:41.290 --> 00:48:48.190
  • 00:48:48.200 --> 00:48:50.050
  • And as I wonder
  • 00:48:50.060 --> 00:48:56.210
  • where you are,
  • 00:48:56.220 --> 00:49:01.080
  • I'm so lonesome,
  • 00:49:01.090 --> 00:49:05.100
  • I could cry.
  • 00:49:05.110 --> 00:49:11.190
  • 00:49:11.200 --> 00:49:16.010
  • I'm so lonesome,
  • 00:49:16.020 --> 00:49:24.270
  • I could
  • 00:49:24.280 --> 00:49:29.100
  • cry.
  • 00:49:29.110 --> 00:49:33.120
  • 00:49:33.130 --> 00:49:40.140
  • [applause]
  • 00:49:46.080 --> 00:49:49.070
  • - That was good, right?
  • 00:49:49.080 --> 00:49:52.010
  • That was good.
  • 00:49:52.020 --> 00:49:53.100
  • Bill: You know, I'm convinced
  • 00:50:50.150 --> 00:50:51.230
  • that God uses our gifts
  • 00:50:51.240 --> 00:50:53.290
  • and then sometimes our lack of gifts.
  • 00:50:54.000 --> 00:50:58.070
  • I don't know how many times I've heard you say,
  • 00:50:58.080 --> 00:51:00.220
  • "I can't sing those real, real high notes."
  • 00:51:00.230 --> 00:51:03.150
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:51:03.160 --> 00:51:04.150
  • - And I said,
  • 00:51:04.160 --> 00:51:05.150
  • "I think God's gonna use you
  • 00:51:05.160 --> 00:51:07.100
  • just within Michael's range," you know?
  • 00:51:07.110 --> 00:51:11.040
  • And the good thing about it is,
  • 00:51:11.050 --> 00:51:12.160
  • you don't go beyond your anointing of it.
  • 00:51:12.170 --> 00:51:14.140
  • - No, there's no sense in proving what you can't do.
  • 00:51:14.150 --> 00:51:17.080
  • [laughter]
  • 00:51:17.090 --> 00:51:20.190
  • - You know, and I think of Gordon Mote
  • 00:51:20.200 --> 00:51:22.180
  • when I think of a blind man.
  • 00:51:22.190 --> 00:51:24.050
  • I think about how much better his hearing is...
  • 00:51:24.060 --> 00:51:27.120
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:51:27.130 --> 00:51:28.140
  • - Because he can't see. - Yeah.
  • 00:51:28.150 --> 00:51:30.050
  • - And I think about how much more sensitive he is
  • 00:51:30.060 --> 00:51:32.270
  • about what's happening in a room,
  • 00:51:32.280 --> 00:51:34.170
  • ten times more sensitive...
  • 00:51:34.180 --> 00:51:36.240
  • - Yeah. - Than any of us.
  • 00:51:36.250 --> 00:51:38.280
  • And it seems like God takes our gifts
  • 00:51:38.290 --> 00:51:40.280
  • and our shortcomings and just simply says,
  • 00:51:40.290 --> 00:51:44.030
  • "I'm gonna bless that."
  • 00:51:44.040 --> 00:51:45.130
  • - Mm. - Yeah.
  • 00:51:45.140 --> 00:51:46.230
  • - He does. - Isn't that great?
  • 00:51:46.240 --> 00:51:49.090
  • - He kind of creates a miracle from our inabilities
  • 00:51:49.100 --> 00:51:54.010
  • and works together for good
  • 00:51:54.020 --> 00:51:56.140
  • for His purpose. - I believe it.
  • 00:51:56.150 --> 00:51:57.270
  • I believe it.
  • 00:51:57.280 --> 00:51:58.270
  • And this song has been
  • 00:51:58.280 --> 00:52:00.060
  • a staple song for you guys, right?
  • 00:52:00.070 --> 00:52:03.160
  • - Yeah. - Pretty well.
  • 00:52:03.170 --> 00:52:04.240
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:52:04.250 --> 00:52:05.290
  • - We're glad you passed on it.
  • 00:52:06.000 --> 00:52:07.130
  • [laughter]
  • 00:52:07.140 --> 00:52:10.140
  • Bill: That's great. That's great.
  • 00:52:11.170 --> 00:52:13.240
  • [uplifting music]
  • 00:52:13.250 --> 00:52:16.240
  • 00:52:16.250 --> 00:52:19.170
  • - I was working in town one afternoon,
  • 00:52:19.180 --> 00:52:24.130
  • attending some business affairs.
  • 00:52:24.140 --> 00:52:28.130
  • I heard a commotion a couple streets over
  • 00:52:28.140 --> 00:52:33.020
  • and wondered, "What's happening there?"
  • 00:52:33.030 --> 00:52:37.100
  • A young man was running from in that direction
  • 00:52:37.110 --> 00:52:41.200
  • and stopped just to catch his breath.
  • 00:52:41.210 --> 00:52:45.290
  • I asked him to please tell me what was the hurry.
  • 00:52:46.000 --> 00:52:51.060
  • He smiled up at me, and he said...
  • 00:52:51.070 --> 00:52:55.040
  • all: "I was trying to catch the crippled man.
  • 00:52:55.050 --> 00:52:59.290
  • Did he run past this way?"
  • 00:53:00.020 --> 00:53:04.020
  • - "He was rushing home to tell everyone what..."
  • 00:53:04.030 --> 00:53:09.100
  • all: "Jesus did today.
