the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself,

upon the earth:” and it was so.

Gen 1.11

To our God who had no beginning,

To our God who knew no start,

Give your talents much or meager,

Give your prose, poetry, or art

Give your mind, with all that’s in it,

Give your body – every part,

Give your soul, eternal ‘pendage

Give your sole, solemn heart.

William Williams was born 2/11/1717, at Pantycelyn, Wales.  Called the “Sweet Singer of Wales” & the “Watts of Wales” Williams originally studied medicine but was ordained a deacon of the Church of England in 1740.  He refused to become a priest & in time attached himself to the Calvinistic Methodists.  He had an interesting schedule: for 35 years he ministered every month at Llaullian, Caio, & Llansawel.  History records him an esteemed preacher. Williams composed his hymns chiefly in Welsh.  He died 1/11/1791. 

He’s remembered today for “Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah” a hymn that was sung at the wedding of Britain’s Prince William & Catherine Middleton (Westminster Abbey, April 29, 2011).


“Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah, Pilgrim through this barren land.

I am weak, but Thou art mighty; Hold me with Thy powerful hand.

Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven, Feed me till I want no more; Feed me till I want no more.”
