John Ralston Clements (28 November 1868 - (1st or 9th) January 1946) was born in Newry, Ireland on 28 November 1868. He immigrated young and grew up in the village Liberty, NY but came to Broome County, NY in the mid-1880's, Baptised from Dwight L. Moody while he was in Binghamton in 1886.

Clements became the first President of Davis College, what was then called "Practical Bible College", a training school for Baptist evangelists. He acted from the time of the school's conception, in a simple classroom on 47 Harrison Street until 1914, when the Bible-training school and evangelistic academy had found permanent residence in the town of Johnson City, NY.

Clements has written supposedly over 5,000 hymns, most of which were founded on the simple fact of redemption inside the love of God. As an example of this, the refrain from one of his hymns: "Weary soul, cease thy repining. Burdened one, God's ways are right. Every cloud has silver lining. God can give you songs by night."
