The Lead Kindly Light manuscript


 

Two old manuscripts lie in safekeeping among the documents belonging to the Church.  One is of the text of the hymn Lead Kindly Light, the other is a list of the original donors who helped Newman build the Church. The copyright of these documents lies with Newman’s Literary Trustees and the Parochial Church Council of St Mary & St Nicholas Church, Littlemore (CofE), who gratefully acknowledge that copyright and thank the Trustees for permission to publish.

The manuscript is in an unknown hand.
