Come, Holy Spirit, Come
“Come, Holy Spirit, Come,” is considered one of the most popular of the hymns written by eighteenth century British minister Joseph Hart.
A native of London, Hart described his upbringing as lacking a firm commitment to Christianity until he attended worship service at a Moravian church in his native city in 1757.
“At one time his hymns were widely used, especially by Calvinistic Nonconformists. Many of them are of merit, and are marked by great earnestness, and passionate love of the Redeemer,” noted Hymnary.com regarding Hart.
