Kelly, Thomas, B.A., son of Thomas Kelly, a Judge of the Irish Court of Common Pleas, was born in Dublin, July 13, 1769, and educated at Trinity College, Dublin. He was designed for the Bar, and entered the Temple, London, with that intention; but having undergone a very marked spiritual change he took Holy Orders in 1792. His earnest evangelical preaching in Dublin led Archbishop Fowler to inhibit him and his companion preacher, Rowland Hill, from preaching in the city. For some time he preached in two unconsecrated buildings in Dublin, Plunket Street, and the Bethesda, and then, having seceded from the Established Church, he erected places of worship at Athy, Portarlington, Wexford, &c, in which he conducted divine worship and preached.

First Line: And art thou gracious Master gone
Author: Thomas Kelly


And art Thou, gracious Master, gone? T. Kelly. [Reproach of the Cross.] First published in the first edition of his Hymns, &c, 1804, p. 26, in 5 stanzas of 6 lines, as the first of a series of hymns on the "Reproach of the Cross." It is also found in all subsequent editions of the same work. In 1812, Dr. Collyer gave it in his Selection; it was repeated by Montgomery in his Christian Psalmist, 1825; and by Bickersteth in the Christian Psalmody, 1833, thus coming into common use. The hymn, “Shall I to gain the world's applause," is a cento therefrom, composed of lines 1-4 of stanzas ii., iv. and iii., in the order named and slightly altered. This cento in L.M. appeared in Nettleton's (American) Village Hymns, 1824, No. 411, and from thence has passed into a few American collections.
