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

Wyeth, John's bio information

March 31, 1770 - January 23, 1858

Born: March 31, 1770, Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Died: January 23, 1858, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

As a boy, Wyeth was apprenticed to a printer. At age 21, he became the manager of a printing company in Santo Domingo, only to barely escape with his life in the insurrection there. In 1792, he returned to America, and settled in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where he became involved in the publishing business and co-owned a newspaper (The Oracle of Dauphin). After only a year in Harrisburg, President George Washington appointed him postmaster; he lost his office five years later when President John Adams declared the position to be incompatible with involvement in newspapers. His works include:

* Repository of Sacred Music, 1810
* Repository of Sacred Music, Part Second (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania: 1813)

These two volumes were hugely successful, selling 150,000 copies.
