Shouldn't this be moved to Come, Ye...? --Haruo 03:24, 1 August 2007 (MDT)

That's the older-style name. I don't know who changed it and when, but both are applicable to the song. Honestly, though, I don't think it matters as long as the other redirects to this page. What are your thoughts? Whatever the case, the other lyrics should be added, too (or at least a note about the name). Veramet 11:43, 1 August 2007 (MDT)
You're right, of course, that a redirect solves the question. I just thought since (a) "Ye" is the original form and (b) the lyrics you cite have "Ye", it made sense for that to be the default title. I, like you, have not found out who started using "We", or when. What shall we do about the "Marching to Zion" version? (With Lowry's tune and refrain, that is. (A similar situation obtains with O God, Our Help in Ages Past, originally—and still in some Reformed traditions—"Our God, Our Help...".) --Haruo 02:27, 2 August 2007 (MDT)
Yeah, you're probably right about the older text titles taking precedence—unless the newer ones are immensely popular by comparison or something. Veramet 19:54, 3 August 2007 (MDT)
