Glen Campbell’s Heart-Rending “What A Friend We Have In Jesus” Will Leave You Spellbound

Noted singer-songwriter and beloved television host Glen Campbell shares an inspiring message in this 1989 live performance at the North Phoenix Baptist Church.

After rising to prominence in the 1960s and 70s with hits like “Gentle on My Mind” and “By The Time I Get To Phoenix,” Campbell went on to release a total of 64 studio albums over the next five decades.

While selling a total of 45 million records during his career, Campbell wowed the world with his genre-defying pop and country vocals, but this video showcases his lesser-known gospel roots.

As Campbell belts out the worship standard “What A Friend We Have In Jesus,” a few cherished lines of scripture come to mind: John 15:15 “No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.”
