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.

Barton was Britain’s counterpart to American John Greenleaf Whittier. Like Whittier, he was called the “Quaker Poet.” Barton attended a Quaker school in Ipswich. In 1798, he was apprenticed to a Mr. S. Jesup, a shopkeeper at Halstead, Essex, with whom he stayed until 1806. Barton then moved to Woodbridge, Suffolk, and entered into business with his brother as a coal and corn merchant. He married, but his wife died after only a year. Barton then moved to Liverpool for a short while, but returned to Woodbridge in 1810. A bank clerk by profession, he wrote 10 books of poems, many of which became hymns. His works include:

Devotional Verses, 1826
Household Verses, 1849


Around Bethesda’s Healing Wave
Fear Not, Zion’s Sons and Daughters
Hath the Invitation Ended?
Lamp of Our Feet
Say Not the Law Divine
See We Not Beyond the Portal?
There Is a Life More Dear
Those Who Live in Love Shall Know
Walk in the Light
We Journey Through a Vale of Tears
Wouldst Thou Share This Benediction?
