Harry Emerson Fosdick (1878-1969) was the founding minister of the Riverside Church, New York, New York, and one of the most prominent liberal Protestant ministers in the United States during the twentieth century.  He, according to many fundamentalists, a rank heretic, has remained in death what he was to them in life:  a figure of scorn and controversy, even a bête noir.  Fosdick was also an advocate for peace and for African-American civil rights in the country.

Fosdick’s four hymns have never ceased to relevant.


God of Grace and God of Glory:


O God, in Restless Living:


O God, Who to a Loyal Home:


The Prince of Peace His Banner Spreads:
