Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Author: Richard Lee

Lee, Richard. Said to have been "a laborious mechanic," and "a political and religious fanatic," contributed several hymns to the Evangelical Magazine, 1793, 1794, which were signed "Ebenezer," and dated from "Leicester Fields, London." In 1794 he published Flowers from Sharon. From this work the hymns, "When I view my Saviour bleeding" (Good Friday), and "See the Captain of Salvation" (Ascension), are taken. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
