All Music Guide - Jim Smith
Considering the excellence of this album, it's surprising that Robbins didn't record more gospel music. It's downright shocking, however, that save for "The Great Speckled Bird" on Singin' the Hits, none of these tracks have ever appeared on a Robbins compilation. Even the incredibly varied Essential Marty Robbins: 1951-1982 ignores it completely, but oh well -- that makes it worthy of reissue, and there's nothing wrong with that. This isn't classic stuff, but it's punchy and tender in all the right places, highlighted by a vivacious take on "When the Roll Is Called up Yonder," a somber, beautiful "Almost Persuaded," and the delicate closer, "Have Thine Own Way, Lord." ...

Robbins sings passionately throughout, and the background singers, who have ruined many a '60s country record, actually enhance this one, giving the songs a churchy feel. Its budget price makes it a nice addition to any library.

    Wonderful gospel music

    With His Hand On My Shoulder is one of my favorites on this cd. Wish more of Marty Robbins gospel cd's were available.

    An album to treasure

    This quite simply is a beautiful album.Marty's mellifluous voice stylishly sings a dozen fine Gospel songs. Robbins always sang with such class and feeling that many consider him to be the all time great voice in the Country field. Three superb Robbins originals are here, 'A Little Spot in Heaven', 'What God has done' and 'With his hand on my shoulder.' Originally released in 1963 when Robbins was at his greatest.
