Where No One Stands Alone

Where no one stands alone

Mosie Lister, of Southern Gospel fame, wrote the song Where No One Stands Alone in 1955. Lister wrote, sung, and arranged many gospel songs that have become standards in Southern Gospel circles. Lister was born in 1921 and passed away about this time last year (February 2015). You can jump over to his website to read more about his musical career.

Ken Shamblin, one of Pap’s good friends, comes to mind every time I hear the song Where No One Stands Alone. Ken enjoyed singing the song and even recorded it on one of Pap’s cds.

After coming up with the trio arrangement of Rock of Ages , Pap is always trying to think of other songs that would work in the same manner. Recently we had a go at the song Where No One Stands Alone. 

I hope you enjoyed the song and the three-part harmony. Pretty cool when you think about each part being from three generations of the same family.

Tipper

    When we have Christ as our personal Lord and Savior we will never stand alone such a blessed comfort to go through this life with that peace and assurance. This was another one of my Moms favorite songs and mine to. The trio did a fantastic job sounded really good.
    I hope you had a great weekend and I trust all is well with you and the family.
    May God Bless You All

    I great job! Interesting that Mosie Lister and Hovie Lister sang together but were not related – and their first names were even similar.

    Tipper “Thanks ” for the Song today.. It is beautiful and helped me feel a little better this morning. We had two deaths this past week, my husbands sister and my nephew. His parents went back to Vermont this morning.

    The three part harmony is beautiful, and it’s the harmony that make gospel music. It’s so wonderful to see and hear three generations of the same family.

    I discovered this on YouTube back before Christmas and have been loving it ever since. Here is the comment I left there.
    “Another Pressley (Presley) once sang this song. I much prefer your version! The man in the middle is looking and sounding much better lately.”

    Tipper,
    THAT is wonderful! Sometime back I commented on Ed’s blog about this song being on his and not ever hearing it before. I got my butt chewed a bit for not looking it up on you-tube before. Somehow I just missed it and this is one of my favorites. Chatter really makes it come alive, her harmony really helps out and
    to have a 3 generation harmony makes it even more Special. Thanks…Ken

    The family that plays together, stays together – and none ever stand alone.
    Love the trio!

    Tipper: This Sunday morning post is very special. My mother use to sing that song. But we never sung it in Church. As she grew older, she would often tell us, “I surely don’t want to be left alone!” She lived to 95 years of age but those last few years were difficult for her after Daddy died.
    Thanks for your beautiful post.

    Now that’s pretty kool, Tip! Three part harmony must be hard to learn and maintain.
    Kudos to the gang!
