The music for this hymn was written in 1815. Here’s Gary Chapman performing it solo, with guitar.

Are you kidding? When Jesus came to resurrect Lazarus, Martha protested, “Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.” (John 11:390) I don’t know that America is yet entirely dead, spiritually–but certainly she stinketh.
May He who called the dead man out of his grave call us.
