Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Say Brothers Will You Meet Us?
Thanks, Q. Lorenz's quotations are not always accurate. The last three lines (see above) should have been:
Banks says, "It has since been claimed that the Millerites [Adventists], in 1843, used the same tune to a hymn, one verse of which is as follows,-- 'We'll see the angels coming / Through the old churchyards [(3 times)*] / Shouting through the air / Glory, glory, hallelujah!'"

The date left out is important.
