Through His Poverty Made Rich

Author: Russell Hymnal: A Book of Hymns for Public and Private Devotion (15th ed.) #127 (1866) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Hymnal Title: A Book of Hymns for Public and Private Devotion (15th ed.) First Line: On the dark-wave of Galilee Lyrics: On the dark-wave of Galilee The gloom of twilight gathers fast; And o’er the waters heavily Sweeps cold and drear the evening blast. Still near the lake, with weary tread, Lingers a form of human kind; And on his lone, unsheltered head, Flows the chill night-damp of the wind. Why seeks he not a home of rest? Why seeks he not the pillowed bed? Beasts have their dens, the bird his nest;— He hath not where to lay his head. Such was the lot he freely chose, To bless, to save, the human race; And through his poverty there flows A rich, full stream of heavenly grace. Languages: English

William Russell

1798 - 1873 Hymnal Title: The Cyber Hymnal Author of "O'er the Dark Wave of Galilee" in The Cyber Hymnal Russell, William, was born in Glasgow in 1798, and educated at the University of Glasgow. Removing from Scotland to America, he was at Savannah in 1817, and subsequently at other places in the United States. He was an active promoter of education, teachers' associations, and kindred objects, and did much to further the cause of education in the States. He was originally a Baptist, but did not hold to close communion. He died at Lancaster, Massachusetts, Aug. 16, 1873. His hymn, "O'er the dark wave of Galilee" (Christ in Solitude), begins with st. iii. of a poem written by him at the request of Dr. Ware, editor of the Unitarian Christian Examiner, and printed therein in 1826. [Rev. F. M. Bird, M.A.] --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
