O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Byrom, John's bio information

Born: February 29, 1691, Old Shambles, Manchester, England.

Byrom’s father was a linen draper in Manchester. Byrom attended King’s School, Chester, then went on to Cambridge, where he graduated M.A. and became a Fellow of Trinity College. But, declining to take Holy Orders, he resigned and soon after married his cousin, Elizabeth Byrom, against the wishes of both families. He earned a living by teaching shorthand, for which he invented his own system. In 1723, he was elected Fellow of the Royal Society. The following year, his brother died, and John inherited the family estates and returned to Manchester. He frequently visited Cheetham’s Hospital in Manchester, and wrote many hymns for the boys there.
