Gospel Music From a Video Game: Bioshock Infinite

I've been playing a lot of video games as of late. I mean you have to do something to pass that time, right?  Well the game that I have been playing lately has a lot of wonderful music in it.  The game is called Bioshock: Infinite, and if you like video games you will love this one.  And of course you love music, or you would not be reading this blog.

Here is a wonderful old gospel song that I love, and that fits this game so well. This is Troy Baker and Courtnee Draper the voice actors for the main characters of the game.  They are performing the original version of "Will The Circle be Unbroken".  It is just wonderful.

Here is a slower version.

Notes from YouTube:

Courtnee Draper - Will The Circle Be Unbroken (Lyrics)
Bioshock Infinite

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, by and by?
Is a better home awaiting
In the sky, in the sky?

There are loved ones in the glory
Whose dear forms you often miss.
When you close your earthly story,
Will you join them in their bliss?


In the joyous days of childhood
Oft they told of wondrous love
Pointed to the dying Saviour;
Now they dwell with Him above.


You remember songs of heaven
Which you sang with childish voice.
Do you love the hymns they taught you,
Or are songs of earth your choice?


You can picture happy gath'rings
Round the fireside long ago,
And you think of tearful partings
When they left you here below.


One by one their seats were emptied.
One by one they went away.
Now the family is parted.
Will it be complete one day?
