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.

Ames, Charles Gordon. (Dorchester, Massachusetts, 1828-April 15, 1912, Boston, Massachusetts). He was ordained as a Baptist minister in 1849 and spent some years as a home missionary in Minnesota. In 1859, he joined the Unitarian denomination and served several churches, his last pastorate being with the Church of the Disciples, Boston. In 1905, he wrote a hymn for the dedication of the new edifice of that Society, beginning "With loving hearts and hands we rear," which is included in The New Hymn and Tune Book, 1914. A hymn beginning "Father in heaven, hear us today," is attributed to him in the Universalist Church Harmonies: Old and New, 1898, but is not found elsewhere. --Henry Wilder Foote, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
