A TRIBUTE TO ANDRAE CROUCH
Andrae Crouch went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, January 8th.
As a child I can remember hearing and loving so many of his songs “Jesus is the Answer”, “I Don’t Know Why Jesus Loved Me”, “Soon and Very Soon”, “My Tribute (To God Be The Glory)”, “Take Me Back”, “Through It All”, “The Blood Will Never Lose It’s Power”, “Bless His Holy Name”, ‘It Won’t Be Long” and so many, many more.
I did not see Andrae Crouch as an entertainer, or a musical artist but as an incredibly gifted minister spreading God’s Word through song.
His songs are timeless, still ministering to the hearts and spirits of people all over the world today though many were written decades ago.
Today, I thank God for the life of Andrae Crouch and for his willingness to faithfully share the gifts that God placed in him to edify the Body of Christ and as a witness of Jesus to the world.
Here are three of his earlier songs that have blessed me over the years; I hope they will bless you too.
JESUS IS THE ANSWER
I DON’T KNOW WHY JESUS LOVED ME
THE BLOOD WILL NEVER LOSE IT’S POWER
“Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.”
(Psalms 105:2 – KJV)
