Detective work on updated hymn

Published 13/04/2016

In Saturday's Belfast Telegraph (Review, April 9) Eddie McIlwaine printed an updated version of We Plough The Fields And Scatter, but had no idea who wrote it.

If Eddie Googles 'the Ramblings of a Country Clergyman' he will find the first verse was written by the Rev Peter Wright. I can't trace the second verse. Perhaps some of your readers can help?
