Abstract

Charles Price Jones "Jesus Has Made It All Right," "I'm Happy with Jesus Alone," "Jesus Only,'· "Glorify His Name," and "Jesus Will Shelter His Own," are just a few of the nearly two dozen original gospel hymns which C. P. Jones stories about in this essay of 1935. For those who regularly sing his songs during worship and devotion, this essay will reveal the racial injustices and religious persecutions and personal quest for holiness which led Jones to establish his church and to compose over one thousand songs of faith. Here is fully documented the vitality of his music ministry, for the bishop is literally preaching the gospel through his telling the story of his songs, leading us point by point, song by song, to the climactic resolution: "Sing unto the Lord, sing praises!". Happy with Jesus Alone The Lord gifted me to sing from a child. Among the many drawbacks of my life has been my bashfulness, a natural timidity that has caused me to hide the light of my very faith, let alone the light of any talent I might have. The first song I wrote and sang was "Jesus Has Made It All Right." Some kind
