A Prodigal made a Blessing

The Life and Hymns of Joseph Hart

John A Kingham (compiler)

There have been few hymn books published from which the hymns of Joseph Hart are absent, yet little is known about his life.   He was very gifted and early in life became a teacher of the classical languages and literature, but his early life was anything but promising. It was not until his mid forties he came to a gracious knowledge of the Lord Jesus which deeply affected his life and began to write the hymns for which he is most remembered.  Apart from an account of Hart’s life the book contains all his hymns, the only extant letter he wrote and the only known recorded sermon he preached.

Frank L. Gosden, Life and Letters

F. L. Gosden

A Sussex pastor for 41 years years, Mr. Gosden once said that he believed a twofold test can be applied to every preacher: 1. Will the things he speaks be things that will matter when we come to die? 2. Will the things he speaks be a help to a poor, broken-hearted sinner? How blessedly his own God-honoured ministry could stand this test!
