Elvis Presley, “Where No One Stands Alone” from How Great Thou Art, his second gospel album, 1967. His first gospel album was His Hand in Mine, 1960. His third gospel album was He Touched Me, 1972. The original was written by the famous Baptist minister and gospel songwriter Mosie Lister in 1955. This is his 9th album and supposedly the best of his gospel albums. I started collecting some of these old gospel albums back in the 1980’s. I was shocked at how good they were. This is supposedly the best of his gospel albums, but the others are probably pretty good too.
If you’ve never heard any of Elvis’ gospel music, you don’t know what you’re missing. You don’t have to be Christian. You don’t have to be religious. Hell, you can even be a raving atheist. But you’ve got to admit, this is some real special music. If there’s a Heaven somewhere, you just know they’ve got to be playing songs like this. How could they not? That’s what songs like this are made for.
