Gospel Hymn Writer. He became the musical director of the First Baptist Church in 1870 and is the author of more then 1500 religious hymns. Some of his most enduring hymns include "Saviour, Breathe an Evening Blessing," "There is a Green Hill Far Away," Saved by Grace," "In the Secret of His Presence," "Take Time to be Holy," "The Homeland," and "O, House of Many Mansions." He supplied the music for Evangelist Dwight L. Moody's Anglo-American campaigns of the late 18th century. As an Evangelist, he also spread the gospel through song in India, Egypt, Italy, Palestine, France and England in the early 1900s. His work is revered as American hymnody with collections in the Bowld Music Library, the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.
