Hymn #119: My Soul Gives Glory to My God
MORNING SONG has been traced to John Logan’s Sixteen Tune Settings (1812), where it was called CONSOLATION. Since then, it has been reprinted in a large number of nineteenth-century hymnals and is one of few American tunes to be included in recent British hymnals.
Kentucky Harmony was a local hymnbook published in 1816, combining the work of a number of other hymnals. It was produced by Ananias Davisson for use in Presbyterian churches. The hymnal used shape notes, a method of musical notation developed to help untrained singers.
