AllMusic Review by

A collection of live and studio tracks from the vaults of HOB (House of Beauty), God Will Bless You features the booming lead voices of Clarence Fountain and Louis Dicks as the group roars through 12 standards in trademark Five Blind Boys of Alabama hard gospel style. Only the twist of a lyric away from being straight secular soul, the group fares best on the uptempo material like "Father, I Stretch My Hands to Thee," "What's He Done for Me," "Jesus Rose With All the Power in His Hands," "Working On the Building," and the impressive set closer, "Send It On Down." Liquid 8 has released this material before (most of these track appear on 2003's Jesus Rose With All the Power in His Hands, for instance), but as a no-frills set of gospel stompers, God Will Bless You works nicely.
