Thread Name: Lyr Add: Glad That I Live Am I (L W Reese)
Subject: RE: Glad That I Live Am I
Just a bit of information about the writer of the poem and its history as a hymn.
Lizette Woodworth Reese 9-Jan-1856 to 17-Dec-1935 Wrote quite a few books of poetry published from 1887 to 1936 (the last 2 retrospectively ... see link above).
"Glad That I Live Am I" was included in the 1st edition of "Songs Of Praise" (edited by DEARMER, Percy, VAUGHAN WILLIAMS, R., and SHAW, Martin 1925) as number 424.
It's pointed to in Oremus, but doesn't appear to be there, possibly for copyright reasons as the author died 1935 (which would mean that the words come out of copyright in 2010).
