Henry Bennett (1813-1868)

Hymn #185.
Here again little is known, not even his religious affiliation. He was born April 18, 1813 at Lyme Regis, England, and died at Islington, November 12, 1868. A year later his hymns were published under the title “Hymns by the Late Henry Bennett.” To show his faith in Christ, as expressed by himself, we quote one verse of hymn #185 (Little Flock):
“The Savior’s precious blood
Has made our title sure;
He passed through death’s dark raging flood
To make our rest secure.”
