sed Origins: Oh, Had I a Golden Thread (Seeger) (21) Origins: OH, HAD I A GOLDEN THREAD 03 Jan 03

The song, "OH, HAD I A GOLDEN THREAD," that Pete Seeger wrote in 1958 is a reworking of "Nearer My God To Thee." Many folksingers are strongly influenced by Christian hymns but how many realize it? Both songs are beautiful and comforting. Though I heard Pete's song first, I now prefer the song that inspired it. What about you? Which song do you prefer and why?
