Blue thou art, intensely blue; Flower, whence came thy dazzling hue?

James Montgomery was born in Irvine, North Ayrshire, Scotland. He was a Scottish poet and editor best remembered for his hymns and versified renderings of the Psalms, which are among the finest in English, uniting fervour and insight in simple verse. He wrote some 22 books of verse. He wrote 400 hymns and more than 100 are still in common use. In common with most poets and hymn writers, he strongly objected to any correction or rearrangement of his compositions. His finest lyrics are "Angels from the realms of glory", "Go to dark Gethsemane", "Hail to the Lord's Anointed" and "Songs of praise the angels sang". His "Prayer is the soul's sincere desire", is an expanded definition of prayer of great beauty; and his "Forever with the Lord" is full of lyric fire and deep feeling.
