My name is Thomas Dorsey. Yes, I did write a lots of blues music but then I became a Christian and commited my life to the Lord. I wrote about three hundred songs and led the choir at Pilgrim Baptist Church in Chicago.
My wife was about to bear our first child and I had been invited to
St. Louis in a revival. I really didn't want to leave Nettie but she insisted
that I go.
While I was on the stage, the first night of the meeting, a young man brought me a telegram. It was horrible news.
My wife had died giving birth to our first child. I was crushed. While the people continued to sing I rushed to the phone and heard the news that it was true.
One of the members of the church drove me back to Chicago and there I found that not only did my wife die, but our baby boy die. I buried them both in the same casket.
Weeks later I went to see a friend and while we were walking the Lord began to give me this song we will sing.....
