GUEST,Eric Lyr Add: A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief (4) RE: Lyr Add: A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief 13 Dec 10

According to the Mormon Church,

The tune used in "Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief" today IS the one sang at his martyrdom.

Incidentally, Willard Richards also survived the attack--didn't seem to be noted. He always attributed it to a miraculous prophecy Joseph Smith made to him in the summer of 1843: "Willard, the time will come when bullets will fly around you like hail, and you will see friends fall to the right and to the left of you--but there will not be so much as a hole in your garment." He got through with nothing but a grazed ear, and he was a man who weighed nearly 300 pounds.
