Notes

James Henry Fillmore (b. Cincinnati, OH, 1849; d. Cincinnati, 1936) began his musical career by teaching music classes in a singing school and by selling music books (mainly those published by his father). The success of these early sales enabled him to establish, with his brother Frank, the Fillmore Brothers Music House of Cincinnati (sold to Carl Fischer in 1951). The company became very successful, especially in the publishing of Sunday school music, gospel songs, temperance and prohibition songs, and general sheet music. Fillmore issued a monthly periodical, The Musical Messenger, in which he initially published his hymns before issuing them in hymnals such as Songs of Glory (1874), New Christian Hymn and Tune-Book (1882), and The Praise Hymnal (1912).

FILLMORE is one of the most popular Scripture songs of the later twentieth century. The diatonic tune and simple harmonization is effective-if not overused. Accompany with guitar and/or keyboard. Organ accompaniment should be rhythmically crisp over a legato pedal.
