Hymn 118 in Singing the Living Tradition has a strong association with the Civil Rights movement, sung at many 1960s anti-segregation demonstrations by Fanny Lou Hamer, Pete Seeger and others. Originally written by evangelical composer Harry Dixon Loes (1895-1965), the song joined the American folk music tradition after John Avery Lomax, Honorary Consultant and Curator of the Archive of American Folk Song, and his wife, Ruby Terrill Lomax, included it in a collection of field recordings for the Library of Congress in 1939.
