A crown of glory bright [high], p. 214, i. This hymn, attributed to Alice Cary in most collections of hymns, is claimed by Mr. Hubert Main of New York for Phoebe Cary (p. 214, i.), sister of Alice. It appeared anonymously in a Sunday School hymn book published by the Sunday School Union, N. Y., in 1800.
