Where the Soul Never Dies was written by William M. Golden in 1914. Little is known about Golden, but his best known songs are this one and A Beautiful Life (Each Day I’ll Do a Golden Deed). Both feature call and response vocals in the verse and refrain and have become bluegrass gospel quartet standards.
The vocal harmonies make this song a lot of fun to sing, and the Travis-style guitar accompaniment just gives it a little extra bounce.
Where the Soul Never Dies was included in DisciplesNet worship #148.
