Bullock was the Ang­li­can rector of St. Paul’s in Trinity, New­found­land; rec­tor of St. Luke’s Church, Hal­i­fax, No­va Sco­tia; and—when the church was des­ig­nat­ed a ca­thed­ral by Bi­shop Her­bert Bin­ney in 1864—St. Luke’s first dean. Bul­lock’s works include:

Bullock’s des­cen­dants relate a family story that he was once asked by a pa­rish­ion­er why he had not written a verse of We Love Thy Place, O God about the pulpit. He replied:

What would I write?

We love thy pulpit, Lord,
For there the word of man
Lulls the worshiper to sleep
As only sermons can.

  1. In Grief and Fear, to Thee, O Lord
  2. We Love the Place, O God
