Morning Song – He’s A Battle Axe

April 30, 2017

The Florida Mass Choir look resplendent in their robes up on the stage of a big auditorium somewhere in the mid-1980s…but the sound and the theology (which are linked) of this electrifying a capella version of “He’s A Battle Axe” is straight out of Mt. Moriah Primitive Baptist Church—and about a thousand other handbuilt clapboard country churches—in early 20th century.

He’s a battle axe,
In the time of a battle,
A shelter in the time of a storm.
