What seems to me to be special about "till this day" is the
prospect of defining "this day" and thus establishing a date of
writing. So far I've seen a couple of names mentioned who claim
that the phrase indicates late dates, but I haven't seen any details.
I'm interested in summaries of HOW these people reached such

give me an undivided heart that I may fear your name.
