Stand for the Right History
This information comes from Stories from The Children’s Songbook by Sister Pat Graham (more information on that book HERE).
The song was first printed in The Primary Song Book in 1939 and also appeared in the Deseret Sunday School Songbook. For the 1989 songbook, the music was simplified and the direction slower added in the penultimate (next to last) measure for emphasis.
