Thread Name: How can I keep from Singing
Subject: RE: Help: How can I keep from Singing
I was the one talking about the word substitution. Sandy just said the bit I quoted afterward the pseudo-Quaker source.

The references to Christ of the original that are treated as Love in the modern versions are consistent in older hymnals. The only question in my mind is if this is a change that Pete Seeger made, or if the change had been made before he got it. Plenn could have made the change when she added the verse or she had it from an oral tradition.
