Boaden, Edward, was born at Helston, in Cornwall, in 1827. It was originally intended that he should follow the legal profession. Early religious impressions and convictions however led him to devote himself to the ministry in connection with what is now known as the Methodist Free Church. Beginning his duties at Gosport in 1849, he has successively filled some of the most important positions of the denomination, including that of President (1871). Since 1864 he has been Chapel Secretary to the Connexion.
His hymns in common use are:—
1. Behold, O Lord our God. (1887.) Temperance.
2. God of Light, in mercy bending. (1860.) Missions.
3. Here, Lord, assembled in Thy name. (1889.) Temperance, 1554
