Glory, Glory Hallelujah

“Say brother will you meet me?”

We sang the famous “battle hymn of the republic” during our Independence Day service. As we sang, the words of another similar song, the precursor to it, came to mind. John Brown’s body lies a mouldering in the grave. The thought occurred that, perhaps even that was not the original of the tune. Sure enough, I found an old Christian camp meeting song, “Say brother will you meet me?”
