Hymns About This Book
Frederick William Faber was born June 28, 1814, at the Vicarage of Calverley, in the West Riding of Yorkshire. He was educated at Harrow and Oxford and in 1839, he was first ordained as priest. In the autumn of 1842. Faber's great legacy to the world was his hymns, which have been adopted by all denominations as the expression of the most intense and personal religious feeling. In these, all hearts may join and throb in sympathy, bowing before the same Divinity, which fills the universe. The following collection of Faber's Hymns, while not complete, nevertheless contains all the best known and most popular of his religious poems, and may be safely claimed to be representative. One or two have been shortened by the omission of a stanza, but abso­lutely no changes have been made in the author's diction. The little volume is offered in the hope that it will meet with the acceptation of all who appreciate Faber's deeply religious spirit, and who enjoy his spontaneous outbursts of lyrical devotion.

There are also many other Christian pieces on this site which are included with other collections, e.g. the Children's Songs section contains quite a few.
