    1. This is only a small part of a longer version of the song that he use to sing during the evangelistical crusades he held in my church in Malaysia in the early seventies. Hopefully, I can remember the lyrics and post it here later on a another day. God Bless

  2. Thanks for commenting, Edward. Has it been published anywhere? Are there any sources that I could quote to make the link between this song and Dr Doss?
