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

Negro walk de golden street

Author: John Stamp
Published in 1 hymnal

Author: John Stamp

Stamp, John, was for some time a minister with the Primitive Methodists; but, for various reasons, he was suspended in 1841. For sometime afterwards he preached in Hull, where a chapel was built for him in West Street. There also his weakness displayed itself, and he had to remove elsewhere. Thenceforth he lived, it is said, in great poverty until his death. He published The Christian's Spiritual Song Book, in 1845. It contains several of his hymns, two of which,—(1) "Leave Thee, no, my dearest [gracious] Saviour" (Perseverance), and (2), "Pity, Lord, a wretched creature" (Lent) — are in Spurgeon's Our Own Hymn Book, 1866. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
