Morning Song -Dig A Little Deeper (In God’s Love)
I’m not saying that The Fairfield Four’s performance of “Dig A Little Deeper (In God’s Love)” 30 years ago on one of Bill Gaither’s “Homecoming” specials is the reason Hillary Clinton is leading Donald Trump in the latest poll out of Georgia. I’m not saying that. (Don’t get it wrong.)
I’m just saying that unless you understand something of the power of the culture displayed so stunningly in miniature by The Fairfield Four in this performance—and the transformation (however fleeting) that takes place in that room during that song—then you’re missing a key part of the story that makes those polling results even possible in these United States.
(I’m gonna) Dig a little deeper in the storehouse of His love;
(I’m gonna) Walk a little more like a Christian should;
(I’m gonna) Talk a little more like I know I should;
(I’m gonna) Dig a little deeper in the storehouse of His love.
