Thought I would sing you one this time. This is a song my brother and I did for a special at church. I added a couple of small fiddle parts to it here at home. Just like my fiddling, my singing is also pretty bad, but people seem to tolerate it. I think it’s because they have finally found someone that they can sing better than. So they keep me around just for that. Maybe it won’t be so bad if you sing along with me. My brother is playing the mandolin and comes in and helps with the singing. Just a little about the author of this song, Jennie Bain Wilson. She was born in 1857 near South Whitley Indiana. At age four she was stricken with a spinal condition and spent the rest of her life in a wheel chair. She was very well home schooled and it is said of her that she made over two thousand two hundred contributions of songs and text. Many of her hymns are in the hymn books still today. She passed in 1913. Also credited with this song is Franklin L. Eiland, 1860 - 1909. I’m not sure if he was a co writer or a publisher of this song. Could have been both. He was a publisher, he wrote many popular hymns himself, he was a much sought after teacher of singing schools, and taught many people that went on to write many of the hymns that you may know today. I wished I could have attended his school, I bet he wishes that too. Let me say that I’m not trying to influence you or change your life with the little gospel songs I play. It’s just some of the music I like to do. If it offends you in some way, just let me know, I will consider what you say.
