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 >
