Thomas, John, M. A., was born at Maesteg, Glamorganshire, in 1859; educated for the Baptist ministry at Pontypool College and Bangor University College; has been Pastor at Huddersfield, &c., and is now (1906) minister of the Myrtle Street Baptist Chapel, Liverpool. Mr. Thomas took his M.A. degree at the London University in honours. His connection with hymnody is slight. His hymn "Dear Master, in Thy way" (Adult Baptism) was originally printed in a Baptist newspaper, and then included in The Baptist Church Hymnal, 1900. His published works are mainly on theological subjects.
