These hymns were written in Olney, England and were originally published in 1779. This collection includes William Cowper's 68 Olney hymns, and twelve other sacred works. All of Cowper's most loved hymns are found here: "God Moves in Mysterious Ways," "There Is a Fountain Filled with Blood," and "O for a Closer Walk with God." This edition also contains a brief biographical sketch of William Cowper by Rev. Henry Stebbing, A. M. (1799-1883). All Bible references are complete text. Please note: The Olney Hymns (1779) were originally published without music. This edition is uniform with the first edition and contains no music. In those days hymns were sung using many different tunes that had the same meter. Music wasn't commonly published in hymnbooks until well into the 1800's.

Author Biography

WILLIAM COWPER (1731-1800) was born in Berkhampstead, England. Among his distinguished ancestors, his father was Chaplin to His Majesty George the Second. Mr. Cowper's sensitive soul was an advantage to his poetry, but he also endured much distress. Mr. John Newton, the preacher at Olney, requested that he give himself to hymn writing. He wrote many other poems as well, such as "The Task" and "The Diverting History of John Gilpin."
