Mackay, William Paton, M.D., was born at Montrose, May 13, 1839, and educated at the University of Edinburgh. After following his medical profession for a time, he became minister of Prospect Street Presbyterian Church, Hull, in 1868, and died from an accident, at Portree, Aug. 22, 1885. Seventeen of his hymns are in W. Reid's Praise Book, 1872. Of these the best known is "We praise Thee, O God, for the Son of Thy love" (Praise to God), written 1863, recast 1867. [Rev.

Notes

The common attribution to John J. Husband is based on a brief resemblance to his tune ST. STEPHEN'S, first published in Psalmodia Evangelica, vol. 2 (1789), but the resemblance only extends to the first two measures. These tunes should not be regarded as the same. This gospel/revival tune was written by William P. Mackay for his own text, "Revive us again," the text having been published in William Reid's Praise of Jesus (1863), tune in the Revival Tune Book (1863/4), combined in William Reid's The Praise Book (1866), where it was called HALLELUJAH. Reid's preface indicates Mackay wrote his own tunes.
