K – in Rippon’s Selection


The 18th-c author of no.877 has never been convincingly identified; see notes in EP vol 1. See also under J Rippon; it was apparently Wm Gadsby (qv) who first linked this hymn with Kirkham, but this has no supporting evidence and he is otherwise unknown. (Robert Kirkham was a friend from the Wesleys’ ‘Holy Club’ days, but not a hymnwriter.)
