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

Serle, Ambrose, a Commissioner in the Government Transport Office, was b. Aug. 30, 1742, and d. Aug. 1, 1812. He published Horae Solitariae: or Essays upon some remarkable Names and Titles of Jesus Christ, &c, 1786. In this work short hymns are appended to some of the articles, and of these, "Jesus commissioned from above" (Redemption), and "Thy ways, O Lord, with wise design" (Providence), have passed into several collections. Serle was also the author of other works. The Rev. E. Bickersteth published Selections from the Works of Ambrose Serle, in 1833. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
