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.
Harry Plantinga

The bum's lament

Where are the days when demijohns were free

Author: Granville Jones
Published in 1 hymnal

Author: Granville Jones

Late 19th Century Currently, our only data on Jones is indirect: E. M. Douthit, who wrote the music for some of Jones’ lyrics, lived in Austin, Texas, in 1899, so perhaps Jones was from that area also. --www.hymntime.com/tch Go to person page >
