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

from My Life and Sacred Songs, pages 22-23:

After a powerful address by Dr. Wilson, and a closing prayer, I was requested to sing another solo. Selecting " Hold the Fort," then comparatively new in Edinburgh, the audience was requested to join in singing the chorus, " Hold the fort, for I am coming," which they did with such heartiness and such power that I was further convinced that Gospel songs would prove as useful and acceptable to the masses in Edinburgh as they had in the cities of York and Newcastle.
