Lizzie Borden’s Favorite Hymn
Sung by Vida Turner at Lizzie’s private wake, many seem to find meaning in Lizzie’s requested and favorite hymn. Rev. Cleveland from the Church of the Ascension on Rock St. gave the prayers to a select few employees. Miss Turner received a check for her services and was told not to repeat where she had been. This version is from a period hymnal and the text is the text Lizzie would have known. Do you see any hidden significance? Try it at home on your piano.
