AllMusic Review by

Gospel Treasury Collection: Lord Will Make a Way mixes contemporary gospel styles with more traditional fare, mixing in blues and soul influences along the way. The Original Soul Stirrers' "Stepping Stone" is highlighted by their classic vocal group harmonies, as well as the support of an eager church choir. Katie Sankey turns in a blistering performance on "I Don't Know Why," which also includes some brilliant, bluesy piano. Meanwhile, Doc McKenzie's "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" is a reverent and rousing singalong. Best is a street-level, live version of "Can't Hardly Get Along," featuring Dr. C.J. Johnson leading the choir.
