Few songwriters have enjoyed the success attained by Mosie Lister.
"Til The Storm Passes By", "Then I Met The Master", "How Long Has It Been", "I'm Feelin' Fine", and "His Hand In Mine" are but a few of the hundreds of songs that emerged from his prolific pen.
Born and raised in Cochran, Georgia, Mosie studied English and music in college. By the late 1940s, he had worked with a number of groups including a brief tenure as an original member of the Statesmen Quartet. However, as his songs began to find favor, Mosie retired from the road to devote all of his time to songwriting. In 1953, he founded his own Mosie Lister Publishing Company, later merging with Lillenas Publishing.
During his career, Lister was known for his ability to draw from a variety of musical styles-always with the constant of strong Bible-inspired, Christian lyrics. As a result, gospel and secular artists alike recorded his songs.
