"Jesus--They drove the cold nails through Your tired hands,"

Here's another video of Rich, taken by a fan in the crowd I would imagine. Not much time passed from this video, when Rich was killed in a car crash.

Richard Wayne Mullins (October 21, 1955 – September 19, 1997)

"On September 19, 1997, Rich Mullins and his friend Mitch McVicker were traveling on I-39 north of Bloomington, Illinois to a benefit concert in Wichita, Kansas when his Jeep flipped over. They were not wearing seat belts and were thrown from the vehicle. When a passing semi-trailer truck swerved to avoid the Jeep, Mullins, who was too injured to move out of the way, was hit by the truck and died instantly. McVicker was badly injured but survived."

This particular song was recrded on the LP: "the Jesus record" Rich Mullins and the ragamuffin band. 1998
