Orlando S. Grinnell was better known as a preacher than a songwriter. Still, the Wayne pastor's single hymn was a hit, not for its timeless melody but for its title. In 1921, the minister wrote a hymn for his flock to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Wayne Congregational Church. Grinnell titled it "The Little Home Church by the Wayside."
