Awesome Live Performance / Christian Music Video: The Crabb Family Reunion - Through The Fire

Published on 9-29-2013

Hello!

Several years ago, as I was surfing through the TV channels I came upon a Christian station that was airing a live performance of the Crabb Family, a gospel music group made up of five siblings (three brothers and two sisters).

I was immediately struck by their strong harmonies and excellent music.

Then when the oldest brother, Jason, took lead vocal parts I was knocked about by his energy and passion, and how real his faith seemed.  Nothing about him seemed at all manufactured.

Later I went to the internet and was very sad to hear that they were no longer ministering together as a group.

Fortunately they're all still all ministering and performing in various incarnations...and with increasing frequency they are making appearances together again.

----------------------------------------

From wikipedia:  In August 2006, the Crabb Family, Jason, Adam, Aaron, Terah and Kelly decided to follow individual paths. The siblings felt it was time to move to a new season in their lives. Each member plans to pursue their separate ministries.

Recently I found this live video of them singing Through The Fire (written by their father Gerald), from their video, The Crabb Family Reunion.

What makes performance so special is that both their father and step-mother (Kathy) join them on stage.  You can see and feel the emotion, and some of them have tears in their eyes.

Hope you feel Blessed by their music.

----------------------------------------

Deuteronomy31:8 (NIV)

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
----------------------------------------

(Verse 1) So many times I've questioned certain circumstances,
And things I could not understand,
And many times in trials, weakness blurs my vision,
That's when my frustration gets so out of hand,
But it's then I am reminded,
I've never been forsaken,
Never had to stand one test alone,
That's when I look at all the victories,
And the power of God starts rising up in me,
And It's through the fire my weakness, it's made strong, 

(Chorus) He never promised that the cross would not get heavy,
And the hill would not be hard to climb,
He never offered our victories without fighting,
But He said help would always come in time,

Just remember when you're standing in the valley of decision,
And the adversary says give in,
Just hold on,
Our Lord will show up (YEAH),
And He will take you through the fire again, 

(Bridge) I know within myself that I would surly perish,
 Oh But if I trust the mighty hand of God,
He'll shield the flame again, 

Again

(Chorus) He never promised that the cross would not get heavy,
And the hill would not be hard to climb,
He never offered our victories without fighting,
He said help would always come in time, 

Just remember when you're standing in the valley of decision,
And the adversary says give in,
Just hold on,
Our Lord will show up (YES!)
And He will take you through the fire again, 

Just hold on,
Our Lord will show up,
And He will take you through the fire again,

Awesome Gospel - Soul Music: The Soul Stirrers - Lord, Remember Me

Hello!

A while back I posted a video of a young Sam Cook singing acapella with the Soul
Stirrers.  (1-25-13)

From wikipedia:

The Soul Stirrers were pioneers in the development of gospel music and soul.

In 1989 they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of rock's Early Influences, and into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2000.

I just happened upon another awesome 1974 video of The Soul Stirrers, with Eddie Huffman singing lead, performing Lord Remember Me.

The video is a bit hit and miss, with footage taken from a live performance, and with images of the "Soul Stirrers - Soul Stirring Reunion" CD cover cut in from time to time (and the video even "freezes" a few times).

But the music is perfect!  


Hope it Blesses you!

(Lyrics Below)





Psalm 25:4-7



4 Show me your ways, Lord,
teach me your paths.
5 Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.
6 Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love,
for they are from of old.
7 Do not remember the sins of my youth
and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
for you, Lord, are good.

Lyrics to Lord Remember Me
:





Whoa, You know I'm like,
I'm like a ship that's, Tossed and driven, Whoa, Lord,
I'm battered by, An angry, An angry sea, Well-Oh, Father,
You know when, When the storms of life, It keeps on ragin',
Jesus, Father, Remember me!
O Lord...

(Listen to me...)

Sometimes, It feels like the weight of this world, Is on my shoulders, Whoa, Yes, It do,
Sometimes, I'm burdened down in sorrows and in misery, Well-Oh, Father,
You know when, When the storms of life, They keeps on ragin', They got to keep on ragin',
Jesus, I love you Father, Remember me!
Oh, Lord...

(Listen)

I read about it, I read about how you, You delivered Daniel, Oh, Yes, You did,
You went down in the lion den, Made the lion back up, And You let old Daniel go free,
Well-Yeah,
You know when, When the storms of life, They keeps on ragin', Got To keep on ragin',
Jesus, I love you Father, Please remember me,
Yeah...

I know You, I know You, Remembered the Hebrew children, I know You remembered them,
When they was down in the fiery furnace, It was seven times hotter than it ought to be,
Yes, It was, Father,
You know when, When the storms of life, They keeps on ragin', Got To keep on......
Jesus, Oh, I need You, Please, Remember me,
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Remember me, Remember me Father, When I'm worried, Worried,
Remember me Father, When I'm on my death bed and I'm dying, Yeah,
You know, You know when the storms of life, Gonna keep on ragin', Ragin', Ragin',
Oh, Lord, Oh, I love You,
Come on and remember me!

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Father! Father! Father! Father! Father! Father! Father! Father! Ohhhh...
Too many, Too many dangers, Too many dangers toils and snares, Oh Lord,
It was grace, (Nothin' but Grace), That brought me safe this far,
If I live right, I know, I know, I know, I know Grace, Grace will surely, Surely lead me on home,

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

There were two thieves, Hanging beside Him, Just to share, Just to share His agony,
And one of them cried out, If you be the Christ, Come down and save yourself, And save me,
The other one cried out, Why don't you leave Him alone, Can't you see that He's done nobody wrong,
And he said Master, When you get a new Kingdom,
Please remember me!

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah.....

Oh..............
