1744-1768
Ottiwell Hegenbotham

Heginbothom was for a short time minister of a Nonconformist congregation in Sudbury, Suffolk. Due to political and religious disputes which shook his congregation, in whose origin he had no part, some members seceded and built another chapel. The stress affected his health, and he died after serving less than three years. A number of his hymns were published posthumously, in:

  1. Blest Jesus, When My Soaring Thoughts
  2. Come Humble Souls; Ye Mourners Come
  3. Come Saints and Shout the Savior’s Praise
  4. Come, Shout Aloud the Father’s Grace
  5. Father of Mercies, God of Love
  6. God of Our Life! Thy Various Praise
  7. Great God, Let All My Tuneful Powers
  8. Hark, the Loud Trumpet of Our God
  9. Hark, ’Tis Your Heavenly Father’s Call
  10. I Ask Not Wealth, Nor Pomp, Nor Power
  11. My Soul Shall Praise Thee, O My God
  12. Now Let My Soul, Eternal King
  13. See, Mighty God, Before Thy Throne
  14. Sweet Peace of Conscience, Heavenly Guest
  15. To Thee, My Shepherd, and My Lord
  16. Unhappy City, Hadst Thou Known
  17. When Sickness Shakes the Languid Corse
  18. Yes, I Will Bless Thee, O My God
