Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Simpson, William John Sparrow, M.A., was educated at Trin. College, Camb., B.A. 1882, M.A. 1886. Ordained in 1882, he held various appointments until 1904, when he became Chaplain to St. Mary's Hospital, Great Ilford. He has published several works, including a Memoir of Dr. W. S. Simpson, 1899. He contributed "All for Jesus—all for Jesus" (All for Jesus), and "Jesus, the Crucified, prays for me" (Passiontide), to C. W. A. Brooke's Additional Hymns, 1901). These hymns originally appeared in Sir J. Stainer's cantata The Crucifixion, 1887, the book of words of which was compiled by Mr. Simpson. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, New Supplement (1907)  Go to person page >
