Representative Text

1 Great Master, touch us with thy skilful hands;
Let not the music that is in us die;
Graat Sculptor, hew and polish us nor let
Hidden and lost thy from within us lie.

Refrain:
Great Master, touch us with thy skilful hands;
Let not the music that is in us die.

2 Spare not the stroke; do with us what thou wilt;
Let there be naught unfinished, broken, marr'd;
Complete thy purpose that we may become
Thy perfect image- thou our God and Lord. [Refrain]

Horatius Bonar was born at Edinburgh, in 1808. His education was obtained at the High School, and the University of his native city. He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
