Sanders evidently emigrated from Britain to America, and pastored in Pottsville. In the early days of the Primitive Methodist movement, he worked with Hugh Bourne compiling hymnals for the use of that group. His works include:

  1. Behold, What Wondrous Love and Grace
  2. Hark! the Gospel News Is Sounding
  3. Servants of the Great Jehovah
  4. We Seek a Glorious Rest Above
  5. Where Shall My Soul Begin to Sing?
  6. While Passing Through This Vale of Woe
  7. Why Do I Wander from My God?
