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: Charles Stanley

Stanley, Charles, a Sheffield merchant, b. circa 1821, a member of the Plymouth Brethren, has published a large number of tracts and some volumes of verse, including The Jewel and the Star, 1855, and Wild Thyme, under the signature "C. S." (sometimes given as "Charles Sabine," in error). From Wild Thyme the hymns "Behold the Lamb of God! Behold, believe, and live" (Faith), and "He gave me back the bond" (Pardon), are taken. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
