HYMN SPOTLIGHT

How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place (1650)

Anonymous 17th Century

Psalm singing has been an important tradition in the Church of Scotland for centuries. This hymn is a portion of a setting of Psalm 84 from the 1650 edition of the Scottish Psalter. The tune to which these words are set is known as BROTHER JAMES’ AIR, written by James Macbeth. This was the pen name of James Leigh Bain (1860-1925), a British poet, composer of tunes, spiritual healer and a mystical writer. His later years were spent in Liverpool working among the children of that city’s slums, where he became known as “Brother James.”
