Prisoners in Michigan - late 19th Century

from My Life and Sacred Songs, page 101:

A few weeks before his death Mr. Bliss visited the State prison at Jackson, Michigan, where, after a very touching address on " The Man of Sorrows," he sang this hymn with great effect. Many of the prisoners dated their conversion from that day.
