Encore: Doc Watson, ‘What a Friend We Have in Jesus’

If this hymn doesn’t stir your soul, better check to see if you still have one: What a Friend We Have in Jesus.

Doc Watson, with untold thousands of hours of experience performing songs and hymns, feels this one so keenly, he is almost unable to get through it without his voice breaking. Doc, we know! Same thing happens to me when I try to whistle it. In fact, it’s happening to me now: the ineffable joy of feeling the presence of the Lord.
