  3. My Mimi and Pawpaw always watched the Gaither videos together and my Pawpaw always said Connie and Claude Hopper were the real deal and the most Godly people he knew. Love your music and ministry!!!

  4. Verse One:

    Men strive for the wealth of this wide wicked world….
    They seek after honor and fame….
    So lavishly sporting their diamonds and pearls…..
    They put the dear Savior to shame….

    The Chorus:

    I'd rather live in that bright city….
    Than to own all earth's silver and gold….
    I'd rather have Jesus my Savior….
    Than the diamonds of a palace to hold……

    I'd rather be….just a poor beggar…..
    Live in a little shack by the road……
    Than to own all earth's treasures…..
    With no title to a future abode…..

    Verse Two:

    They seem not to know that their treasures will rust…
    And thieves often break through and steal….
    Contented with pleasure…they follow their lust…
    With sorrow their destiny se….

    Verse Three:

    What profit is found in earth's silver and gold……..
    How sad at the close of life's day….
    If for the exchange one must lose his own soul…..
    From Heaven's door be turned away….

    The Chorus:

    I'd rather live in that bright city….
    Than to own all earth's silver and gold….
    I'd rather have Jesus my Savior….
    Than the diamonds of a palace to hold……

    I'd rather be….just a poor beggar…..
    Live in a little shack by the road……
    Than to own all earth's treasures…..
    With no title to a future abode…..

    Than to own all earth's treasures…..
    With no title to a future abode…..

  5. Love this! Such talent! Mrs. Connie Hopper’s voice is so beautiful! Love the harmonies as well! Like being in church in my childhood!

  6. Please give me only Jesus He is all I need in this life and the life to come. What a wonderful rendition.

  7. Sitting here in my recliner missing my late husband, Mark, he passed 9/11/2017. Mark had so many medical problems I couldn't even get his an end of life insurance policy. Mark passed leaving me with a pile of bills and broke. It's been a trying time financially I wouldn't want any widow to walk where I am walking. Just sitting here wondering how I am going to make it the next three months. I will be having a very serious complicated surgery Monday May 15th. Wondering where the money is coming from for gas I live an hour and a half from the hospital. Thinking on so many of my needs watching and listening to The Hoppers on my laptop. I love Connie she is a spiritual comforting strength to me as a widow. I have loved all of the songs I drifted off it has been one of my most trying days. I was awakened by Connie and Kim singing it touched me deep down in my soul. I don't know where the money is coming from. I do know I am thankful and blessed by The Hoppers their songs give me hope, strength and peace to give it all to God there is nothing my God can't do. Thank you The Hopper Family for making my evening more peaceful.

  8. 💖 JESUS CHRIST IS MY LORD TO THE GLORY OF GOD OUR FATHER💖💖💖!!!👏👏👏 PRAISE HIM IN ALL THINGS FOR HE IS WORTHY OF ALL PRAISE 👏👏👏!!!💖💖💖 AMEN 💖💖💖!!!

  9. I love this song…no voices like the Hoppers singing to gather. I so love Connie's voice! She's wonderful. I can see the love of God on her face. I've never got to meet them, but I can look at them sing on my I-pad. I am on hospice and it's so up-lifting.
