Henry Francis Lyte Poems
Henry Francis Lyte 1793 – 1847. Henry Francis Lyte was a Scottish Anglican from a poor family. Lyte became an Anglican clergyman in 1815. In the following year Henry Francis Lyte was converted to Christ. A fellow clergyman had urged him to take the epistles of Paul in their plain and literal sense. He began to study the Bible in earnest and to preach in a very different manner than he had previously done. The depth of his commitment to Christ is evident in his excellent poety.
