Horatius Bonar

Bonar, Horatius (bŏnˈər) [key], 1808–89, Scottish clergyman and hymn writer. In 1837 he became minister to the North Parish in Kelso; in 1843, Bonar, with his congregation, seceded in the movement leading to the formation of the Free Church. He wrote religious tracts and edited religious periodicals and collections of hymns, including Hymns of Faith and Hope (3 series, 1857–66). He is best remembered, however, for his fine hymn texts, such as I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say.
