We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Composer: E. J. Orchard

Orchard, Edwin John, a chemist at Salisbury, was born at Whitchurch, Hants, in 1834. In 1869 he published a collection of original tunes as Orchard's Supplemental Psalmody. His hymn, "I have a Father up in heaven" (The Divine Father), appeared in W. R. Stevenson's School Hymnal, 1880, and again in other collections. One of his songs, "The Muster Roll," has been widely circulated in the Army. [Rev. W. R. Stevenson, M.A.] --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
