Guinness, Henry Grattan, .D.D., son of Capt. John Guinness of Dublin, was born at Mountpellier, near Dublin, in 1835. His work as an undenominational Preacher began in 1856, since which time he has visited most parts of the world in prosecuting his evangelistic labours. He has written numerous hymns and printed them privately to enclose in letters and parcels, and for general distribution. Of these the following were included in The Enlarged London Hymn Book 1873:— (1) "How beautiful the Saviour's feet" (Christ, in Glory); (2) "Thou art my joy, Lord Jesus" (The Glory of Jesus); (3) "Yes, Thou art mine, my blessed Lord" (Jesus our All). --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)… Go to person page >

Savior, Long Thy Saints Have Waited

Savior, long Thy saints have waited&#;
Centuries have passed away
Since the promise first was given
Of a glorious Advent day.
Grey and old the world is growing,
Loud the scoffer&#;s boast is heard;
But our hearts are peaceful knowing
We may rest upon Thy word.
