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

Slatter, James, was born at Oxford in 1790, and spent his life in that city. He was a layman, in business, and a member of the Baptist church in the New Road. He died May 22, 1862. Mr. Slatter wrote a book entitled "Bural Pictures," which however was only circulated privately. He also wrote many hymns, which were never published, and two, which appeared in the Baptist New Selection, 1828: (1) "Great God, to thee, a lowly band" (Sunday Scholars' Hymn). (2) "Through Nature's temple, large and wide " (Divine Worship). [Rev. W. R. Stevenson, M.A.] -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
