Newton's hymns with diary extracts for the same week side-by-side

"The glory of 'amazing grace' shines the brighter..."

"This painstaking compilation allows us to see some of the Olney Hymns set alongside Newton’s private journal, sometimes for the very day he wrote them.

It offers us new insights into the inspiration of his hymn writing. Topical references – personal or national – are transmitted into timeless prayer and biblical principles. The glory of ‘amazing grace’ shines the brighter for this juxtaposition of journal and hymns."

Timothy Dudley Smith
 

most hymns are now precisely dated !


(currently only for hymns also in Newton's manuscript notebook)

The link in the left hand column of tables A & B takes you to the hymn within the JNP website, featuring an extract of the hymn's manuscript image. From that page you can then follow a link to the full manuscript image on the Harvard University website.

Table C takes to hymns arranged per 'Book' in Olney Hymns, with the same links as above.

Our thanks to the The Pratt Green Trust for providing a grant for the digitisation of the ms hymns by Harvard University.
