John W Peterson told the story of why he wrote this song, one I recorded years ago with Lorin Whitney.
He had been offered substantial payment for his original song, "Over the Sunset Mountains" if he would change the text from "Jesus my Savior I'll see" and considered that move, and wrote this song to answering his reason why he refused. then went on to a tremendous career.
