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.

Byron, George Gordon Noel, Lord, born in London, Jan. 22, 1788, died at Missolonghi, April 19, 1824. Lord Byron's name is associated with hymnody through a few pieces from his Hebrew Melodies, 1815, being in use in a limited number of hymnals, and these mainly in America. These include:— 1. The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold. 2. The king was on his throne. 3. The wild gazelle o'er Judah's hills. Lord Byron's Works with Life and Letters, by T. Moore, in 17 vols., was published by J. Murray, London, 1832. -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
