Well Loved Hymns

placeholder gifBrixham

The Reverend Henry Francis Lyte is remembered as the writer of many well-loved hymns including 'Praise My Soul The King Of Heaven' and 'Abide With Me'. The latter was written shortly before his death in 1847. It became soccer's first anthem and has been sung by the crowd at every FA Cup final since 1927.
