I’d like to introduce you to one of the most famous Gospel songs ever-Pap even wrote it. Well not really. I mean Pap did write it-but it’s not famous-but it should be.
Pap has written well over 100 songs-most of them he sings for a while, then lets them slip back into the guitar case of time to be forgotten. He wrote The Mountain Burned With Fire a few months ago. From the first time we heard it-we LOVED it. For weeks I’ve went to bed with the tune rambling around in my head-and awoke to find it’s still there.
I like the phrases Pap used-the trumpets sounded long and loud; fate was the fear they could not endure; now you need not fear; made it plain in all the land; publish now to all the Earth. They remind me of the old hymns I love so much. But the tune of the song is nothing like a hymn-it’s new, interesting, catchy, and man is it fun to play on the bass.
I dare you to listen to the song-and see if I’m right-see if you agree it should be a famous gospel song sung throughout the world.
Famous or not?
