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.

Jesus loves me, Jesus loves me, O the happy chime

Jesus loves me, Jesus loves me, O the happy chime

Author: William Carey

Carey, William, D.D., the first Baptist Missionary in India, was born at Paulerspury, Northamptonshire, in 1762, educated for the Baptist ministry, and left England for India in 1793. He was for some time at Mdnapatty, Bengal. Because of the hostile attitude of the East Indian Company towards missions, he with his companion John Fountain (p. 384, ii.) removed to Serampore, and placed himself under Dutch protection in 1799, and joined Joshua Marshman, then recently arrived in India. He was sometime professor of Sanskrit in Calcutta. He died at Serampore in 1834. He was the first to compose Christian hymns in Bengali, several of which are in common use in India. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
