I don't know what category to place this topic . Moderators feel free to move it . Homer Rodeheaver was to Billy Sunday as Ira Sankey was to D.L. Moody . Bert H. Wilhoit wrote a book called "Rody" . I'll give a few miscellaneous snippets from it here . H.R. was famous for a number of songs : Brighten The Corner Where You Are , Every Cloud Will Wear a Rainbow If Your heart Keeps Right , Pray The Clouds Away , You Must Open The Door , Goodnight Here And Good Morning Up There. H.R. : " I believe there is a worldwide revival of religion coming back. When it arrives , it will be accomplished through singing gospel songs and teaching others to sing . " Rody popularized sunrise Easter services . In 1929 Billy Sunday wrote a letter to Rody accusing him of ingratitude in regard "to all that had been accomplished to make him famous and successful ." Last words of Billy Sunday ; " I'm getting dizzy , Ma! " H.R. said that whenever Sunday " gave an invitation , I wanted to hit the sawdust trail ." "In Sunday's earlier ministry , he gave much emphasis to personal salvation . After 1907 he preached sermons against the saloons ... " An interesting quote from D.L. Moody : " I would have rather written 'Softly And Tenderly' than [do] anything I have been able to do in my whole life ." Rody said that " One gospel song that is frequently spoiled is 'Since Jesus Came Into My Heart' ... singing it too fast makes it sound frivolous ... it can approach [ jazziness] . Another gospel song that sounds ridiculous when sung too fast is ' Praise Him ! Praise Him !' " H.R.'s words regarding a song leader's qualities : " His purpose should be to seek his audience's enjoyment . "
