Thread Name: How can I keep from Singing
Subject: RE: Help: How can I keep from Singing
Lowry, who wrote a bunch of songs we'd now call 'gospel' is the composer 1870's off the top of my head. He may have written the words, but that is not quite clear. The last verse is not part of the original.

The Quaker bit is a mistake by Pete Seeger when he first collected it.

There have been threads on this is the past that I will now go look for.
