Oluwa mi l’o ti nto mi lo (All The Way My Lord Is Leading Me)
by CHAS.H. GABRIEL 1865-1932

– Charles Hutchinson Gabriel(1865-1932) was born in Wilton, Muscatine County, Iowa, and raised on a farm, where friends and neighbours often gather to sing.
-At the age of sixteen he began teaching singing in school(following in his father footstep) and soon he became teacher and composer
– He composed hundreds of tunes and text, at times using pseudonyms as Charlotte
– The total number of his composition is estimated at about seven thousand
– It is said that he taught himself to play the family’s reed organ. Even though he never
had any formal training in music, he began to travel and lead his own shape note singing
schools in various locations around the age of 17
-The pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Wilton (Pastor Pollock or McAulay) once
saw Gabriel walking in town early in the week. He asked Gabriel if he knew a good song to go along with his sermon. The pastor shared the sermon topic and by the end of the week the boy had written a song for that Sunday, words and music. The Rev. N. A. McAulay was a pastor at the Wilton church for many years, and it is also said that young Gabriel wrote the music for one of McAulay’s songs. The song, How Could it Be, was later published
in Songs for Service, edited by Gabriel, with the music being credited to Charles H.
Marsh possibly one of Gabriel’s pseudonyms.
– Eventually he served as music director at Grace Methodist Episcopal Church, San-
Francisco, California (1890-2). While working at Grace Church, he was asked to write a
song for a mission celebration. He wrote Send the Light, which became his first
commercial song. He moved to Chicago, Illinois, and in 1912 he began working

with Homer Rodeheaver’s publishing company.
-Gabriel was married twice, first to Fannie Woodhouse, which ended in divorce, and later
to Amelia Moore. One child was born to each marriage.
