Composer: Simeon B. Marsh

Simeon B. Marsh (b. 1798; d. 1875) was a gifted musician and teacher. He began singing in choir at age seven, and started studying music when he was sixteen. Just three years later he was teaching in the local singing schools. In 1837 Marsh became the publisher of the Amsterdam, New York paper The Intelligencer, and upon moving back to Sherburne founded the Sherburne News. He taught choirs and children for almost thirty years in and around the Albany area, and served as a Sunday school superintendent. Laura de Jong Go to person page >

Jesus, Lover of My Soul

Jesus, lover of my soul,
let me to thy bosom fly,
while the nearer waters roll,
while the tempest still is high;
hide me, O my Savior, hide,
till the storm of life is past;
safe into the haven guide,
O receive my soul at last!
