The Traditional Gospel Song

“Give Me That Old Time Religion” or simply “Old Time Religion.” Included in a list of Jubilee songs, “Old Time Religion” dates back to the 18th century. Although, some experts claimed that the song may probably be around at an earlier period. They made reference to its tune as hinting similarity with English folk origins. Furthermore, the literature says Tillman first heard the song sung before he penned it. Thus, this supports the scholars’ statement that the song, or its tune, has been in existence prior to 1873. The African-Americans first sang it.

Apparently, the lyrics didn’t mention anything about Jesus or the gospel. However, it became a standard tune in many Protestant hymnals. By and large, Tillman was responsible for introducing the song to the collections of white audiences. Doing so made an immense influence on the union of black spiritual and white gospel song traditions. This confluence resulted in the formation of the genre now known as southern gospel.
