Martyn

Looks like “Mary to the Savior’s tomb” is actually the original text proper of the tune MARTYN, both words and music by Simeon B. Marsh, 1834. And it’s based on a John Newton text (now I need to see how Marsh emended Newton).

    It looks to me like the 1911 Dakota Odowan sets a text that is likely to be “Jesus, Lover of My Soul” to MARTYN.
