Hymn History

The Christian harvest Thanksgiving hymn, “Come, Ye Thankful People, Come” was written by the Rev. Henry Alford (1810-1871). He was an accomplished English clergyman, theologian, hymnodist, poet, and writer. Alford lost his mother four months after his birth and was an only child. His father, who was also a clergyman in England, was the traveling chaplain of Lord Calthorpe, and was usually not around when Henry was a child. Alford was primarily raised by his uncle, Rev. Samuel Alford’s family. He attended the Trinity College at Cambridge University and graduated in 1832. Alford entered the ministry the following year and became a very successful Pastor at several churches in England during his years of ministry.

Henry was also an accomplished musician and hymnist who knew how to play the piano and organ and sang very well. He wrote few vocal music compositions as well as pieces for the piano and organ. He wrote several hymns along with “Come, ye thankful people, Come”, but this hymn became his most popular one among them and has been used in many churches since to thank God for all His blessings.
