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.

When I look back and in myself behold

When I look back and in myself behold

Author: Baron Vaux, Thomas Vaux
Published in 1 hymnal

Author: Baron Vaux, Thomas Vaux

Vaux, Thomas, Lord. The Poems of this nobleman appeared posthumously in The Paradise of Dainty Devices, 1576. According to a note at the back of the title page of the 1580 ed., the poems which therein appear under the name of Vaux were written by "the elder," i.e. Thomas, second Lord Vaux, who was born in 1510, and died before May 31, 1557. Other writers have suggested that William, the third Lord Vaux, was a joint contributor with his father. William died. in 1595. The Vaux poems, 15 in all, were republished by Dr. Grosart in his Fuller Worthies Library, Miscell., vol. iv. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
