Joseph Hart (1712 – 24 May 1768) was an 18th-century Calvinist minister in London. His works include “Hart’s Hymns”, a much-loved hymn book amongst evangelical Christians throughout its lifetime of over 200 years, which includes the well-known hymn, “Come ye sinners, poor and needy”.

How good is the God we adore,
Dmaj7                            Em
Our faithful, unchangeable Friend!
G                                    D
His love is as great as His power,
Em                                 A7
And knows neither measure nor end!

2 ’Tis Jesus, the First and the Last,
Whose Spirit shall guide us safe home;
We’ll praise Him for all that is past,
And trust Him for all that’s to come.
Joseph Hart, 1712-68
