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

Lively hope

Author: Judith C. Madan

Madan, Judith, née Cowper, was the only daughter of the Hon. Spencer Cowper, the wife of Colonel Martin Madan (d. 1736), and the mother of Martin Madan, and of Dr. Spencer Madan, sometime Bishop of Peterborough. She had some repute as a writer of verse. Her Burial Hymn, "In this world of sin and sorrow," appeared in the 1763 Appendix to her son's Psalms & Hymns in 2 stanzas of 8 lines. It has been repeated in several collections in Great Britain and America, and is. given without alteration in Lyra Britannica 1867, p. 659. We have failed to ascertain the date of Mm. Madan's birth or death. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
