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: Joseph Beaumont

Beaumont, Joseph, eldest son of Sir John Beaumont, was born March 3, 1615, educated at Westminster, and Peter House, Cambridge, and died Sept. 3, 1652. His Original Poems in English and Latin were published posthumously in 1749. In this work there is a fine poem on "Homo". This has been condensed into a hymn, beginning "As earth's pageant passes by." Consecration to God.) His Psyche (1st pub. 1647), together with selections from his Original Poems, &c., were reprinted in Dr. Grosart's Chertsey Worthies, 1877-80, in 2 volumes. -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
