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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Author: John Pyer

Pyer, John, of Welsh descent, and formerly spelt. Pyer was born at Bristol. Dec. 3, 1790. In 1803 he joined the Methodist Society, and subsequently became for a short time a local preacher in that connexion. He was then engaged for some time in what was known as "The Tent Mission." This evangelical work led him in 1830 to join the London City Mission. In 1834 he became pastor of a Congregational chapel at South Molton, Devon, and later he held similar charges at Cork, and at Devonport, where he died April 7, 1859. His hymns include "Met again in Jesus' Name" (Beginning of Service). His Memoirs, by his daughter, Mrs. K. P. Russell, were published in 1865. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
