Stanley, Charles, a Sheffield merchant, b. circa 1821, a member of the Plymouth Brethren, has published a large number of tracts and some volumes of verse, including The Jewel and the Star, 1855, and Wild Thyme, under the signature "C. S." (sometimes given as "Charles Sabine," in error). From Wild Thyme the hymns "Behold the Lamb of God! Behold, believe, and live" (Faith), and "He gave me back the bond" (Pardon), are taken.
--John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)
