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

Lo they come from east and west

Lo they come from east and west

Author: Samuel Willard

Willard, Rev. Samuel. (1776 [sic]--1859). He graduated from Harvard College in 1803, served the First Church (Unitarian) in Deerfield, Massachusetts, 1807 to 1829, when he resigned on account of blindness. In 1823 he published a collection of 158 songs, composed by himself, and in 1830 a compilation entitled Sacred Music and Poetry Reconciled, a hymnbook containing 518 hymns by various authors, about 180 of them written by himself. This book was adopted for use in the Third Parish in Hingham, Mass., where Willard was then living, but had little circulation elsewhere, and none of his hymns came into general use. --Henry Wilder Foote, DNAH Archives… Go to person page >
