Because this Sacred Harp Hymn...

Six year old Lorraine Miles leads Sacred Harp shape-note singing in Texas, 1931.

Genesis 28:16-17 New King James Version (NKJV)
16 Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.” 17 And he was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!”

...brought me nearer to God tonight.  Surely, truly, the Lord was in this place.

Nearer My God to Thee. - 488b
