Thank you so much for your comments, Ed. It's always thrilling when a family member of a hymn writer visits, especially a hymn as iconic as this one.

If you have any stories behind how your grandmother came to write this amazing hymn we'd love to hear them! :)

God bless,
Steve

Thanks Camille

One of the most beloved and well known voices for this song is George Beverly Shea, who was still singing and traveling with the Billy Graham crusades in the 1970's, as far as I know of. However, if you just want to hear it without buying anything, look for this title on YouTube: In Times Like These https://youtu.be/l982neCQiXo . There is also a lovely acappella redition here: https://youtu.be/j3jK3x3iMOM

Alternatively, it is in a lot of old hymn books. Find one that has it in it, and have your church pianist play it for you. I hope she/he can read music!

As a last resort, I can record this myself since I am a church pianist.
