'The Baptism Of Jesse Taylor' From The Oak Ridge Boys

Grammy award-winning group, The Oak Ridge Boys, perform their hit song ‘The Baptism Of Jesse Taylor.’ This powerful song tells the tale of a man who decided to hand his life over to the Lord. Previously, he lived a sinful life but now he has turned to God.

“They baptized Jesse Taylor in Cedar Creek last Sunday
Jesus gained a soul and Satan lost a good right arm
They all cried, "Hallelujah" when Jesse's head went under
'Cause this time he went under for the Lord”

The Oak Ridge Boys are known for their unique blend of country music and gospel. This group has been together since the 1960s and there is no end in sight for this talented quartet. ‘The Baptism Of Jesse Taylor’ previously won the group a Grammy award for Best Gospel Performance. The lyrics resonated with so many hearts around the world and continue to do so today.

“From now on Nancy Taylor can proudly speak to neighbors
Tell them how much Jesse took up with little Jim
Now Jimmy's got a daddy and Jesse's got a family
And Franklin County's got a lot more man”

When we accept God as our Lord and Savior, we are truly starting a brand new life. God has washed away our sins and, now, we are free to live out our eternal days in Heaven. That is such an amazing gift and truly something to be celebrated.

This song is the perfect reminder of the changes that happen when the Lord walks with us. Who remembers hearing this song for the very first time?
