"Bill and Gloria Gaither's songs of faith have touched millions, and here we get to hear many of them performed, and learn the stories behind how their creativity is stirred, and how many of these lovely compositions were brought to life.
Mark Lowry, who produced this wonderful music film (and also has a laugh-out-loud comedy moment on stage), interviews them, and one gets the feeling of much love between all the Gaither family, with also a lot humility and humor.
Many old performances are shown, dating back to the late '60s, with the marvelous tenor voice of Bill's brother Danny. Other singers include Sandi Patti, Woody Wright, Jim Hill, and many more.The songs:
"Think on the Good Things" / "Eyes Have Not Seen, Ears Have Not Heard" / "I Just Feel Like Something Good is About to Happen" / "God Gave the Song" / "This is the Time I Must Sing" / "Center of My Joy" / "Because He Lives" / "There's Not a Hoof Left Behind" / "There's Something About That Name" / "Forever with Jesus" / "I Am a Promise" / "I'm Gonna Keep On" / "Jesus is Lord of All" / "I'm so Glad I Found an Altar of Prayer" / "The Longer I Serve Him" / "Something Beautiful" / "Let's Just Praise the Lord" / "We Have This Moment Today" / "He Touched Me" / "God Always had a People" (reading) and "The Church Triumphant" / "Some Things I Must Tell the Children" / "I Could Never Outlove the Lord" / "The King is Coming" / "The Stage is Bare".Some highlights for me are Sandi Patti singing "God Gave the Song", with Bill's expressive central narration; a telecast from '72 of their big hit "Because He Lives"; the hilarious performance of a song they say is the worst they ever wrote, "There's Not a Hoof Left Behind"; Gloria brought me to tears with her intro to "Some Things I Must Tell the Children", and the moving final piece, "The Stage is Bare", also sung by Sandi Patti.Bill and Gloria are a match made in heaven, and are joined on stage with their family, dearest friends, and fellow musicians, for an hour and 56 minutes of joyous music and insights into their life, which lift one's spirit, and inspire the mind."
Why I Like "Because He Lives"

"I think this is one of their best videos.It gives you the best history of how it all started.First with Bill,Danny and their sister Mary Ann and later how Bill met Gloria,dated and got married and Gloria taking Mary Ann's place in the Treo.I also enjoyed the story included of Danny part in the Treo and felt sorry for him for having to go through what he did.The appearencesof Danny and his singing after his voice started to come back are very touching and appreciated.I highly recomend this video to anyone aquianted with the Gaithers Nevin Moyer"
