The congregation present in the church in Edinburgh - 23 November, 1873

from My Life and Sacred Songs, page 22:

The song selected for my first solo was " Jesus of Nazareth passeth by." The intense silence that pervaded that great audience during the singing of this song at once assured me that even " human hymns," sung in a prayerful spirit, were indeed likely to be used of God to arrest attention and convey Gospel truth to the hearts of men in bonny Scotland, even as they had in other places.
