Lynch, Thomas Toke

Lynch, Thomas Toke
   Born at Dunmow, Essex, son of surgeon, he was educated at a school in Islington, London. He was pastor of Highgate Independent Church 1847-1849 and Mornington Church, in the Hampstead Road, although he labored at his task, was never a popular preacher, and was never in good health. Known as a hymn writer, he also wrote some hundred poems, not all with religious themes; however, some of his hymns-which expressed an admiration for nature-were criticized as being too theologically unsound to be suitable for public worship. He was a cultured musician and composed several tunes to his own hymns. He published several prose works, and he produced Hymns for Heart and Voice: The Rivulet in 1855 (third edition 1868), and Songs Controversial (issued under the pseudonym "Silent Long") in 1856. Some of his poems: "Chestnut Roasting," "Egg-Shell," "Sunshine," "The Poet Warned," "The Singer," "The Vine," "Trust." Some of his hymn/poems: "Christ in His Word Draws Near," "Gracious Spirit, Dwell with Me," "Lift Up Your Heads, Rejoice," "Lord, on Thy Returning Day," "My Faith, It is an Oaken Staff."
