He also held from 1846 the appointment of Stated Clerk of the Presbyterian General Assembly. He died at Summit, New Jersey, Sept. 22, 1883. His hymnological knowledge was extensive. His publications include:— (1) Freedom's Lyre; or, Psalms, Hymns, and Sacred Songs, for the Slave and his Friends, N. Y., 1840, to which he contributed 24 hymns under the signature of “E. F. H."; (2) The Church Hymn Book for the Worship of God, N. Y., 18t2, in which are 10 of his hymns; and (3) Chapel Hymns, N. Y., 1873. (4) The Poets of the Church. Biographical Sketches of Hymn Writers, with Notes on their Hymns, New York, 1884. This was a posthumous publication, and is far from being accurate. His hymns and psalm versions in common use include:— 1. Come, bless Jehovah's name. (1837.) Psalms 134. 2. Come, let us gladly sing. (1837.) Psalms 95. 3. Hallelujah, praise the Lord. (1837.)
