This favourite hymn was requested by my grandmother to be sung at her funeral.
My grandmother was raised a Methodist and married the son of a Presbyterian
Minister, but I never thought of her as religious because she never spoke about it. I hadn't considered that she was raised to believe you don't discuss religion or politics in polite society.
