Ira David Sankey (28 August 1840 – 13 August 1908), known as The Sweet Singer of Methodism, was an American gospel singer and composer, associated with evangelist Dwight L. Moody. He was born on August 28, 1840, in Edinburg, Pennsylvania, just outside New Castle to David Sankey and Mary (née Leeper). Aged 16, Sankey was converted at a revival meeting at the King's Chapel (now a United Methodist Church), three miles away from his home.
Ira D Sankey was the musical partner of famed Bible teach and evangelical Dwight L Moody. Moody's evangelistic meetings reached hundreds of thousands of people as he travelled the globe – and it was Sankey's songs they sang. Known as the 'Sweet singer of Methodism', Sankey was converted at the age of 16 at the King's Chapel near his home in Edinburg, Pennsylvania. They made several visits to the UK at the instigation of CH Spurgeon, who was a supporter of their work. When Moody was asked about Sankey's contribution to his campaigns, he replied: 'If we can only get people to have the words of the love of God coming from their mouths it's well on its way to residing in their hearts. The Moody/Sankey pattern was followed by other evangelists right up to Billy Graham, who used Cliff Barrows in the same way.
Ira David Sankey, son of David Sankey, known as the father of Lawrence County, and Mary Leeper Sankey, was born August 28, 1840, in Edinburgh, Pennsylvania. At age 16 he was converted at a revival meeting at the King's Chapel Church, about three miles from his home. Sankey composed about 1,200 songs in his lifetime. From 1895 to 1908, he was president of the Biglow and Main publishing company. He was blind from glaucoma the last five years of his life, and no doubt found a kindred spirit in his friend and music making partner, blind hymnist Fanny Crosby. Sankey married Fanny V. Edwards, one of his choir members, in September, 1863. Ira D. Sankey died Au. 3, 1908 in Brooklyn. In 1979-80, the Gospel Music Association recognized Sankey's prodigious contributions to gospel music by listing him in the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.
