Author: Thomas Kelly

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.

First Line: Arise, ye saints, arise! The Lord our leader is
Author: Thomas Kelly

Notes

Arise, ye saints, arise. T. Kelly. [Christ the Leader.] First published in the 3rd edition of his Hymns on V. P. of Scripture, 1809, No. 77, in 7 stanzas of 4 lines, and headed, “He teacheth my hands to war," Ps. xviii. 34. In 1812 it was taken out of the above, and included in Kelly's Hymns adapted for Social Worship, No. 88, but subsequently it was restored to the original work. Full text in Hymns, M. Moses, Dublin, 1853, No. 253. As in common use both in Great Britain and America, it is in an abbreviated form, but the arrangement of stanzas differs in various collections.

-- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
