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.

Composer Bio Information

Tullar, Grant Colfax's bio information

August 5, 1869 - May 20, 1950

Born: August 5, 1869, Bolton, Connecticut.

Died: May 20, 1950, Ocean Grove, New Jersey.

Buried: Restland Memorial Park, Hanover, New Jersey.

Tullar was named after the American President and Vice-President, Ulysses S. Grant & Schuyler Colfax. His father was unable to work, having been wounded in the American civil war Battle of Antietam. So, after Tullar’s mother died when he was two years old, the family split up. Grant had no settled home after that day until he became an adult.

As a child, he worked in a woolen mill and as a shoe clerk, and received virtually no education or religious training. He came to Christ at age 19 at a camp meeting near Waterbury, Connecticut. He then attended the Hackettstown Academy in New Jersey. Ordained a Methodist minister, he pastored for a short time in Dover, Delaware, then became a full time evangelist. In 1893, he and Isaac Meredith founded the Tullar-Meredith music publishing house in New York. His works include:

* Sunday School Hymns No. 1 (Chicago, Illinois: Tullar-Meredith Co., 1903)
* The Bible School Hymnal (with Isaac Meredith) (New York: Tullar-Meredith Co., 1907)
