  1. Love the way it starts from nothing, then swells to a huge moment with the brass and then fades so gently away. The repitition is a magical incantation that keeps the line throughout. There are other pieces of music like this but this is the most incantatory and moving that I know.

  2. This Homeless Man has Jesus in his Heart, and is more Rich then any Billionaire. Turn to Jesus Christ and His Blood will Cleanse you Too, NO ONE is too Lost or Wretched to be Saved. God bless you.

  3. I stream music from a music site all day long while I do all kinds of things but when I heard this music, I stopped to give it full attention. It sounded so pure, sincere and plaintive. I have been playing it constantly since then without even knowing the background until today. I decided to share it with my friends in Facebook so I searched for it here and was even more astounded when I read the story behind this song. It's a song of faith and devotion without any reservation.

  4. Goldfrapp , Alison and Gregory, had a show on BBC6Music this last sunday afternoon; and they chose this, they reduced it to about 12 mins. I~ was at work as a security guard at a lorry park and had lorry drivers and others coming in and out and there was a hail storm and beautiful huge red topped clouds as the sun set. I couldn't stop smiling. Alison sobbed a tiny bit as they cut the track short. A wonderful memory.

  5. this is so classy… makes me smile, thinking about being in the "back in the day" times, when all music was like this, and the holiness of having nothing but food, water, Sunday school, and fellowship, and singing to God all day. sitting in a chair with a loved one there in another chair, listening to this, smiling all pure and content and old. Beautiful.

  6. Its not just a loop and some could say its not even a song really but this, this is so much..Please take the time to hear the entire song. This a man at his truest and in that it is unbarebly honest in the eyes of a world. I hear a man with nothing but can find happieness even in the worse of times. Mark from Sparkle horse turned me onto this. I turned to this not feel sadness but gratefullness

  7. My favorite part is when he said.
    'Jesus Blood Never Failed me yet. 
    Never Failed Me Yet.
    Jesus Blood Never Failed Me Yet.
    There's One Thing I know.
    For He loves Me So'.
