Rev. Edwin D. Byington writes in The Congregationalist and Christian World, of the favorite hymns of Mr. McKinley. We quote from his excellent article:—

"In the future future histories histories of hymnody the most conspicuous and interesting incident narrated concerning 'Nearer, my God, to Thee,' will be that it was breathed from the lips of our martyred President in his last conscious moments; and that, on the day of his burial, millions of hearts and voices the world over joined in singing it. It has now been sealed with a sacrificial seal and crowned with the diadem of martyrdom.
