Lady Hymn Writers (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Lady Hymn Writers Hymnology is attracting mu ch notice at the present time, but only a student of the subject can realize how much we owe to lady hymn writers. It takes poetic feeling, fervent devotion, and religious experi ence to make a good hymn, and all these must be conceded to most of our women hymn writers, as we think the specimens here given will prove. Many friends have helped me by indicating sources from whence information could be gleaned, or by furnishing such information. Among them I must name especially Mrs. C. F. Alexander, wife of the Bishop of Derry; Rev. Andrew Carter, editor of the British Messenger Rev. C. G. Reskelly of Littledean; Mr. Arthur E. Grant of Burnley; Mr. George Penn of London, who passed away while the book was in the printer's hands; Miss K. Oxborrow of Ipswich; Miss Birkbeck; Mr. E. J. Ensor, and others. I am also greatly indebted to the Rev. W. Garrett Border's Hymn Lover, and Schaﬂs Library of Religious Poetry, for various particulars concerning hymn writers.
