Now gird your patient loins again
A rather curious Christmas hymn written by the Rev. Dr. William Croswell. The Rev. William Croswell, D.D.(1804-1851) was successively Curate of Christ Episcopal Church, Boston, Massachusetts; Rector of St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Auburn, New York; and Rector of the Episcopal Church of the Advent in Boston, Massachusetts. The composer of the tune, John Edgar Gould (1821-1875) came from Vermont and managed music stores in New York and Philadelphia.
