-Wuu.. IIImhU H.-I,..r was rector of tho
Episcopal Church nt Hodnet, in .Shrop
shire, he went to pay a visit to his father-in-law,
Dr. Shipley, 'then Vicar of Wrex
ham, on the border of Wales, llcbf r was
In his thirty-second year, and had come to
Wrexham to deliver the first of a series
of Sunday evening lectures in Dr. Ship
lev's church. In the morning of thst
same day. Dr. Shipley wa to" deliver a
, discourse in behalf of tho "Society for the
Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign
On theafternooo beforo " Whitsunday, '

I Prlor. Dr. Shipley, knowing his on-in-
ltv'a h.nnv ttift (n lantil r.iiiinnitJiin. Slid
i to him, " Write somethings for us to sing
I.tl.n bhIaa mnAn. hifl.niH,." Clin.
notice that for a man to achieve his
I immortality. Hebcr retired to another
part of tho room, and In a little time had
prepared three verse, of which tho llrst
one ran thus:
"From (ireenland' ley mountain-;
From lndia' coral tnind.
Where Afric'i Minny roiintxill-
Hull doi n their golden sand :
From many an ancient river;
From many a palmv plain
They called ll to defller
Their land from errors eh.ilu."
Hober read the three versis over, nnd
only altered a single word. Tbeuventh
r, " ,
li"0 of sond verse was
"The .iagc in hi bllndnt ."
Tho author erased that word, amis:
stltuted for it the better word henthrn.
'There, there," coolly remarked Dr. Ship
ley, "that will do very well.'' Heber wms
not satisfied, and said, "No, no; the scne
is not complete. " In spite of his father's
earnost protest, Heber withdrew for a few
moments longer, and then coming back,
reading the following glorious bugle blast
which rings like tho reclllt oftho milen
' Waft, waft ye wind, the story,
And you, j e water, roll I
Till like a ea of glory,
It -oread from pole to pole !
Till o cr our ran-omeil nature, ,
The l.amb for sinner slain,
lledeemcr, King, Creator,
In blis returns to reign."
"What shall wo sing it to?" inquired
Dr. Shipley. Mr. Heber who had a linn
musical ear, suggested a popular air called
"'Twas when the seas were roaring." The 1
suggestion was adopted, and on tho next
morning the people ot rexhain church
listened to the "first rehearsal " of a lyric
wincn nas unco neen echoed uy millions ot
voices around the globe. Tho'alr to which
it was sung originally has given p'ace, nt
least in our American churches, to a sonc.
