During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Author: Joseph Beaumont

Beaumont, Joseph, eldest son of Sir John Beaumont, was born March 3, 1615, educated at Westminster, and Peter House, Cambridge, and died Sept. 3, 1652. His Original Poems in English and Latin were published posthumously in 1749. In this work there is a fine poem on "Homo". This has been condensed into a hymn, beginning "As earth's pageant passes by." Consecration to God.) His Psyche (1st pub. 1647), together with selections from his Original Poems, &c., were reprinted in Dr. Grosart's Chertsey Worthies, 1877-80, in 2 volumes. -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
