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.

Author: Charles E. Mudie

Mudie, Charles Edward, the founder of the well-known library which bears his name, was born at Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, Oct. 18, 1818. In 1872 he collected his poems and published them as Stray Leaves (2nd ed., 1873). Several poems on Scriptural subjects, and a few hymns are included in the volume.
