Hymnmakers - Ira Sankey, Vol. I
Ira D. Sankey played a key role in the revival meetings of evangelist Dwight L. Moody. When asked by a pastor what he felt was the primary contribution that a song leader such as Ira Sankey brought to his meetings, Moody replied, “If we can only get people to have the words of the Love of God coming from their mouths, it is well on its way to residing in their hearts.”
The Sheffield Celebration Choir and the Sheffield Salvation Army Band lift combined voices to sing “Just As I Am” and 13 other age-old hymns popularized by Ira D. Sankey.
