Park, Edwards A., D.D., an American Congregational Minister, born at Providence, Rhode Island, Dec. 29, 1808, was one of the editors of the Sabbath Hymn Book, published at Andover in 1858, in which the hymn, "Unto the Lord, unto the Lord" (Public Worship), sometimes ascribed to him as in Spurgeon's Our Own Hymn Book, 1866, was published anonymously as No. 37. By all the American hymnological authorities it is still regarded as "Anon." This is strong evidence against Dr. Park's authorship.
