Browne, Thomas Briarly, of Wellington, was the author of The Oxford Divines not Members of the Church of England, 1839; Thoughts of the Times, 1838; and the National Bankruptcy and other Poems, Lond., Pickering, 1844. From this last work a version of the 148th Psalm has come into somewhat extensive use in English-speaking countries. It is the well-known "Praise the Lord of heaven, praise Him in the height." Original text in Lord Selborne's Book of Praise, 1862, p. 25.
