Cowper, W. (n.d.). Olney Hymns. Retrieved from


Excerpt: These hymns were written between 1765 and 1773 at the village of Olney (OHN'ee) where Cowper was under the // influence of the Anglican Evangelical preacher John Newton. This was a period of great religious fervor within the // Evangelical movement and for Cowper, and this enthusiasm is clear in the poems. Less clear, but still visible, are the // lingering affects of the madness which debilitated Cowper in 1762 and to which he again succumbed in 1773. When // William Cowper wrote.
