'Twas when the sea [seas], with awful [horrid] roar

Author: Joel Asaac Knight
Published in 18 hymnals

Author: Joel Asaac Knight

Knight, Joel Abel. In Dobell's New Selection of 700 Evangelical Hymns, 1806, is a hymn on the death of a child, commencing, "Alas! how changed that lovely flower," the name affixed being "Knight." It also appears with the same signature in Denham's Selection, 1837, and in some American hymn-books. The writer was most probably the Rev. Joel Abel Knight, an Evangelical divine, who, in 1789, published a volume of Sermons, and was the author of a small volume of Sacred Poems. Knight was a man of some note, and friend of J. Newton, Greathead, Rippon, and Ryland. He was also the author of "My Father's at the helm." [Rev. W. R. Stevenson, M.A.] --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)… Go to person page >
