Walk With Me is always a great song to me. There's something about those lyrics that kept me listening to that song over and over again....

Julie my child
Why do you run?
Why have you turned away from me?
You say it’s hard
To live perfectly
And all you can see
Is how you fail me constantly
You fail me constantly
You fail me constantly

My blood has cleaned you
Your sins are remembered no more
So come on, and walk with me

Julie my child
I’ve set you free
For I want you to be with me eternally
I love you so
I want you to know
That I’m the one who’s calling you home
Calling you home
Calling you home

My blood has cleaned you
Your sins are remembered no more
So come on, and walk with me
My blood has cleaned you
Your sins are remembered no more
So come on, and walk with me

I voted Behold. I've always felt that the Whitecross ballads were a bit substandard.

I think the best one they ever did in relation to music, fitting Scott's voice, writing, etc. is "Angel's Disguise". I love that tune!

Years ago when I first listened to "Walk With Me" I was very touched by this song and filled in my own name.
That made it special.

I voted Walk With Me as well. Angel's Disguise would be a close second in my mind.

In America/In the Kingdom, isn't that the same song?. I would probably vote for Behold in the metal era version of WhiteCross. They had a song on the Equilibrium album called "Windows" that was pretty good. It was penned by Billy Smiley and I think Mark Gershmel as well. Which means it was probably a WhiteHeart throw away track that WhiteCross recorded.

"None of the above" wasn't listed, so I picked "Other" instead Laughing

Seriously, I think most Whitecross ballads will go down in history as categorically worse than most Stryper ballads, which I thought was statistically impossible. They're not the worst I've ever heard, but certainly they feel "tacked on" to the albums as opposed to truly belonging there. Not until "Flytrap" did I feel the mellower side of Whitecross actually felt somewhat natural.

Ditto (almost word for word).

I have never been a fan of Whitecross (or Stryper's) ballads. I just don't like Scott's voice on most of them.

Didn't Rex sing the lead on Simple Man?

I don't care for older Whitecross ballads as much except for Walk With Me. I thought they hit their "ballad stride" on In The Kingdom.

Yes! I have always hated that! I couldn't believe that the band and Dez Dickerson actually recorded it. Did it not occur to anyone how much it sounded like ITK?!?!? I don't really care for In America at all. In the Kingdom, on the other hand, was a terrific song.

I used to think so, but I don't believe he did. Just another example of why Scott's voice wasn't made for balladry Laughing

I don't think Scott was that bad on the ballads. Honestly thou I never really thought he was a great singer. Compared to others from his time like Jamie Rowe, Michael Sweet, Larry Worley, Adam Lee (Crystavox). "Simple Man" was odd in the fact that I to have always thought it was Rex or someone else singing because Scott sounded way different on that song.

I believe that Scott AND Rex sang on that song. In the video for "Simple Man", I seem to remember seeing Rex singing.
