Country sermons and hymns like these are a reassuring part of many Southern families’ memories and welcome today during troubling times.
Bill Youmans performed as a musician with many bands. As a solo performer, he turned to his roots as a preacher’s son, singing gospel songs.
The song in this video is a gospel hymn called “When We All Go to Heaven,” written in 1898. He plays the guitar and sings.
The video is shot with three images of Bill, making it look like a trio is singing and playing guitars. The uplifting song is hopeful.
The words of the song praise Jesus and rejoice in his victory over death. It encourages us to look forward to meeting him in heaven.
