Dedicatee/Title of Larger Work
To the Jubillee Singers of Fisk University, Who Went Forth With Weeping, Bearing the precious seed of touching Songs wrung by ages of oppression from the hearts of an Imaginative Race, And Who Now Return With Joy, Bringing their sheaves with them, having realized the magnificent sum of Eighteen Thousand Pounds Sterlings, For the Erection of Buildings adapted to the Educational wants of their People, This Anthem, Written by request of their Conductor, George L. White, Esq., Treasurer of Fisk University, is Dedicated, As an expression of that loving sympathy which seeks not only to weep with them that weep, but to rejoice with them that do rejoice, By The Composer.
