The Many Faces of “O My Father”

This is probably the earliest version of this well-beloved LDS hymn written by Eliza R. Snow.  The file includes some interesting context to when the hymn was written, including that it used to be sung to the tune of the German national anthem, (Das Deutschlandlied)  among other tunes. This is a tune that is no longer used, but provides another great pairing with these plaintive words.
