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, 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.

O thou to whom in prayer and praise

O thou to whom in prayer and praise

Author: Edward A. Church
Published in 2 hymnals

Author: Edward A. Church

Church, Edward Alonzo. (Boston, Massachusetts, 1844--January 29, 1929, Roxbury, Massachusetts). He was a business man who wrote in 1904, for the laying of the cornerstone of the new edifice for the Church of the Disciples (Unitarian), Boston, of which he was a member, a hymn beginning "Almighty Builder, bless, we pray, The cornerstone that here we lay." The next year, for the final service in the old edifice which the congregation was leaving, he wrote a hymn beginning "O Thou to whom in prayer and praise, We here have turned with constant heart." Both hymns were included in The New Hymn and Tune Book, 1914, and the first is also in Hymns of the Spirit, 1937. --Henry Wilder Foote, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
