1829–1895

According to Julian, the two hymns shown below, by one J. Young, appeared in the American Baptist Psalmist of 1843. In The Evangelical Hymnal (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania: The Evangelical Publishing House, 1921), the author of O for a Shout of Joy is also shown as J. Young, which the index expands to Rev. Jacob Young (1829–95). If correct, Young was only 14 years old when the Psalmist was published.

  1. O for a Shout of Joy
  2. O Holy Lord Our God
