‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name’ (the other melody)

This is the melody I know best for All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, here sung as a processional by the choir and congregation at First Plymouth Church in Lincoln, Nebraska.

One of my most vivid memories is of the outdoor chapel at YMCA camp, overlooking a glorious vista of hills and fields and woodlands, with the camp counselors’ quartet belting out this hymn for all they were worth. Even just thinking of it now, going on 60 years later, deeply moves me.
