Tune of the Day: The Lily of the Valley

Hymn and gospel song

“The Lily of the Valley” is a gospel standard, appearing in almost all Protestant hymnals. The hymn was written by William Charles Fry in London for the Salvation Army. American gospel singer and composer Ira D. Sankey arranged the words to the music of “The Little Old Log Cabin in the Lane”, composed in 1871 by Will “Shakespeare” Hays for a minstrel show.
