“The Steeple Song” was one of the best songs that framed out the CCM movement in a more definite direction.  Don Francisco became the master of the story– he would narrarate the word in popular songs.  This happened at the perfect time, as the church in the 1970s needed that approach.  You might say he was a Bible teacher who narrated his teaching with his wonderful guitar.

If (and when) we look back, Mr. Francisco will be a bright spot with his many songs.  This song, in particular calls it Churchianity when the habit of church life replaces actual Christianity.

There is one other song, “I Don’t Care Where You’ve Been Sleeping” written in 1977.  I’m giving you 2 for the price of 1 as I put his link down for you.  As you listen, I hope it will be a deep and solid blessing to your heart.
