Charles Wesley wrote this hymn to celebrate the first anniversary of his conversion on Whit Sunday 1738. It was inspired by a Moravian friend Peter Bohler, who had remarked to him, "If I had a thousand tongues I would praise Christ with them all." The words set the poet's heart aglow and to celebrate the anniversary he wrote the hymn.
"Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks was written by two Nashville songwriters after a meal in a local restaurant. One of them forgot his money, but said not to worry, "I have friends in low places. I know the cook."
