M.Mosie Lister

Thomas Mosie Lister (September 8, 1921 - February 12, 2015 )


Cochran, Georgia native Mosie Lister was one of the most prolific songwriters in Southern Gospel Music. Though known mostly for his songwriting, he was also a singer with the Melody Masters Quartet and the Sunny South Quartet. He was also the original lead singer chosen by Hovie Lister (no relation) when Hovie launched the Statesmen in 1948.

Mosie Lister eventually gave up singing professionally to concentrate on his songwriting. In 1953, he founded his own Mosie Lister Publishing, which later merged with Lillenas Publishing. His songs have been recorded and re-recorded many times.

Lister passed away on February 12, 2015 at the age of 93.
