|Title||The Ninety and Nine|
|Performed by||Frank C. Stanley|

The words of Elizabeth Clephane and music of Ira Sankey, combined by circumstance in 1874, formed this ageless classic. Recorded frequently throughout the generations and in present times, here we have an early black wax version although worn down a bit over the years beautifully rendered by Frank C. Stanley.
