On this Good Friday, I share very different versions of the song, “Were you There?” The African American Spiritual is attributed to a few different people, but it has been around much longer than when it was first published in 1899. Only God knows….

One response to “Were you There?”
Thank you for these renditions. I look forward to listening to them all. It gave me a Holy chill to see this title. I had heard this song earlier in life but had forgotten it. I am reading ” The Robe” for Lent. Douglas’s character, Marcus Gallup, a Roman Centurion asks this question throughout the novel.
