James Edwin Orr died April 22, 1987 at Ridgecrest, North Carolina.

He was in a service where Paul W. Finch preached and thus was at least exposed to holiness (told this personally by PWF).  Though born in Ireland Orr became an or­dained an Amer­i­can Bap­tist min­is­ter.  He attended several schools, earning from Ox­ford a PhD.

He is best remembered by his song “Search Me O God” (w.1936):

And set me free.
