Come, poor guilty, anxious mourner

Come, poor guilty, anxious mourner

Author: John Stamp
Published in 4 hymnals

Author: John Stamp

Stamp, John, was for some time a minister with the Primitive Methodists; but, for various reasons, he was suspended in 1841. For sometime afterwards he preached in Hull, where a chapel was built for him in West Street. There also his weakness displayed itself, and he had to remove elsewhere. Thenceforth he lived, it is said, in great poverty until his death. He published The Christian's Spiritual Song Book, in 1845. It contains several of his hymns, two of which,—(1) "Leave Thee, no, my dearest [gracious] Saviour" (Perseverance), and (2), "Pity, Lord, a wretched creature" (Lent) — are in Spurgeon's Our Own Hymn Book, 1866. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
