do you know the name of the tape? that would help in finding her or talk to the older folks in church. They seem to know alot of people and things from forever ago.

I do not know, it is a copy of who knows how many copies (Not originally done by me!) no name or anything. I know it's older than 1999 because that is when I first heard it. the person who had it didn't know who it was either. I figure if I put it out there, someone will know who it is just by the other songs on the tape. Someone has to have the album (hopefully)

thanks, Niki

In the late 70's, there was a group from Princeton, KY called the Baker Family that recorded this song. Ricky Baker was the soloist. We still have some of their records.

Do you remember if it is this version:
Ill take Jesus for mine, ill take Jesus for mine.
You can have this whole wide world, but Ill take Jesus for mine.
Verse: Aint got no time to pick and choose, with the Lord on my side, there's no way i can lose. From now until the end of my time, I'll take Jesus for mine.

I need the other verse

Thanks guest that posted on 9/07/17. It's not who I was looking for.
The one I heard in 1999 was a higher voice. No one else sang with her.
