Mudie, Charles Edward, the founder of the well-known library which bears his name, was born at Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, Oct. 18, 1818. In 1872 he collected his poems and published them as Stray Leaves (2nd ed., 1873). Several poems on Scriptural subjects, and a few hymns are included in the volume. The hymn by which he is best known is "I lift my heart to Thee, Saviour divine" (His and Mine). It is from the Stray Leaves, and is in several hymnbooks, including the Scottish Evangelical Union Hymnal, 1878; Horder's Congregational Hymns, 1884, and many others. It is marked by great beauty and tenderness of expression. Several of Mr. Mudie's hymns, which are not in common use are worthy of attention. [Rev. W. Garrett Horder]
