A personal note: I LOVE this hymn. However until I researched it today I did not know it was from 1773 and that an English clergyman was credited with it. I really thought it was an African American Spiritual that others just assimilated!
On This Day is a prompt I started last month to further explore historical events. I will make every effort to keep events localized to that of my research or research I am conducting for others. However, from time to time, it will simply be a subject that captured my attention.
Some posts will be brief while others may be more detailed.
