When Julia Fletcher composed her little poem, she did not realize how popular it would become. One evening, she wrote the first verse as part of "A Letter to Sabbath School Children" for her editor. Early the next day, she attended a teacher's morning class in Pitman's Phonography at the Tremont Temple in Boston. As part of a 10-minute writing exercise, she dashed off some more verses to add to the one from the previous night. Later, when her editor called for "scraps" to fill corners, she sent the poem to him. Unfortunately, she did not sign it. After years of being attributed to others or listed as "anonymous," the poem was finally credited to Julia.
