Gaither Vocal Band

The Gaither Vocal Band is an American Southern Gospel vocal group, named after its founder and leader Bill Gaither. Since 2009, it consists of David Phelps and Wes Hampton (tenors), Michael English (lead), Mark Lowry (baritone), and Bill Gaither (bass). Although the group started out recording contemporary Christian music, it became known for southern gospel after the popularity of the Gaither Homecoming videos. more »

Just suppose God searched through Heaven, 
And couldn't find one willing to be, 
The supreme sacrifice that was needed, 
That would buy eternal life for you and me

Had it not been for a place called Mount Calvary, 
Had it not been for the old rugged cross, 
Had it not been for a man called Jesus, 
Then forever my soul would be lost

Well I'm so glad He was willing to drink His bitter cup, 
Although He prayed "Father let it pass from me", 
And I'm so glad He never called Heaven's angels, 
From these hands, Pulled the nails that torment me

Then forever my soul would be lost
