Here is a hymn we used to sing in the High School Chorus. The singers in this video are
the Boy's Choir at Canterbury Cathedral. "Brother James" was the composer. A preacher
named James MacBeth Bain. As the "MacBeth" suggests, he was Scottish.
I haven't heard this old hymn for ages. I used to have three versions when I had my
record collection. The singers were Johnny Cash, Burl Ives, and a choir. Can't remember
which one. I've always seen the title as Poor Wayfaring Stranger, but there are always
variations in these old songs.
