Llanwenarth House near Abergavenny was the residence of Cecil Frances Alexander when she penned the hymn. In it she wrote:
The purple headed mountain
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning,
That brightens up the sky
It is thought that the Blorenge and Sugar Loaf mountains and the River Usk provided the inspiration for those lines that have been sung for 150 years.
