Weary am I, go to rest

Author: Harriet Hall

Hall, Harriet Ware. (Boston, Massachusetts, September 15, 1841--March 18, 1889, Boston). She was a lifelong resident of Boston, a member of King's Chapel. Two small books by her were privately printed, one a collection of poems entitled A Book for Friends, 1888, the other entitled Essays, printed posthumously in 1890. The first book contains a hymn beginning "Lord, beneath thine equal hand" in three stanzas, 7.7.7.7.D., dated February 10, 1869, and written for the installation of Rev. E.H. Hall at Worcester, Mass., in 1869. It is included in the Isles of Shoals Hymn Book, 1908, the first line altered to read "Lord, beneath whose equal hand." --Henry Wilder Foote, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
