I may choose to ignore anonymous comments. I consider this type of anonymity dishonest. Also, I don't post regularly. I post when I have something worth writing and something worth reading. I explain all this in: Don't Let Telling Tales Trip Up Your Truthfulness.

"Oh My Father" Available on The National Jukebox

"Oh My Father" (interactive version) is a distinctly Mormon hymn. The lyrics were penned by Eliza R. Snow, a renown, early member. I was surprised to discover a secular recording of the hymn included on The National Jukebox. The National Jukebox is part of the Library of Congress and makes historical recordings available for free. You can listen to it from the embedded item below.

This recording was made in 1923 by the Trinity Mixed Quartet in Camden, New Jersey. It was recorded onto a Victor record housed at a library at The University of California, Santa Barbara.
