Phelps. The poem was written soon after Smith's death, and was later set to music and adopted as a hymn. It was first published anonymously in the church newspaper Times and Seasons in August 1844, approximately one month after Smith was killed. The LDS hymnal now uses a melody based on "Scotland the Brave" in honor of Phelps's Scottish heritage. Now let's listen to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sing "Praise to the Man" “We do not worship the Prophet...
But we acknowledge the Prophet; we proclaim him; we respect him; we reverence him as an instrument in the hands of the Almighty in restoring to the earth the ancient truths of the divine gospel, together with the priesthood through which the authority of God is exercised in the affairs of His Church and for the blessing of His people.”
Gordon B. Hinckley, Ensign, Dec. 2005 Can music bring comfort?

On the day the Prophet Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum were martyred, John Taylor, who was a prisoner in the Carthage jail with the two brothers and Willard Richards, sang the hymn “A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief.” After he finished the song, the Prophet said, “Sing that song again, will you, John?”

Being filled with despair, John told Joseph that he did not feel like singing to which the Prophet replied,

“You’ll feel better once you begin, and so will I,”

Hyrum also asked John to sing the song again. Because of his love for the two men, John sang the song again. The spirit of love and service in the song filled the hearts of the men with comfort and peace just before their death.

From “Intimate Disciple: Portrait of Willard Richards” by Claire Noall. What does the song mean? The Prophet Joseph Smith “has done more, save Jesus only, for the salvation of men in this world, than any other man that ever lived in it.” D&C 135:3 to cheer, salute, greet or welcome; to acclaim; approve enthusiastically Chorus Chorus
