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.
Harry Plantinga

Since Eden, it keeps the secret

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 >
