|Short Name:||Anne R. Cousin|
|Full Name:||Cousin, A. R. (Anne Ross Cundell), 1824-1906|
Cousin, Anne Ross, née Cundell, is the only daughter of David Ross Cundell, M.D., Leith, and is the widow of the Rev. William Cousin, late Minister of the Free Church of Melrose. She has contributed many poems to various periodicals; 7 hymns to The Service of Praise, 1865, edited by the Rev. J. H. Wilson, of Edinburgh; and 1 to the Psalms and Hymns for Divine Worship, 1866, the Hymnal of the English Presbyterian Church. Four of her hymns are included in the Scottish Presbyterian Hymnal, 1876. Her most popular hymn, "The sands of time are sinking," was first published in The Christian Treasury for 1857, and gives its title to the collected edition of her poems published in 1876, as Immanuel’s Land and other Pieces by A. R. C. This is a collection of 107 hymns and poems, many of which are very beautiful. In general they are, however, rather meditations than hymns suited for public worship. Of these the following, in addition to those annotated under their first lines, are in common use:—
1. King Eternal, King Immortal. Christmas.
2. O Christ, what burdens bowed Thy head. Good Friday.
3. To Thee, and to Thy Christ, O God. Praise.
4. To thy father and thy mother. Filial Duty.
[Rev. J. Mearns, M.A.]

Cousin, Anne K., p. 264, ii. Other hymns are:—
1. None but Christ; His merit hides me. None but Christ. From her Immanuel's Land, &c, 1876, into Laudes Domini, 1884, &c.
2. O! Christ, He is the Fountain. This begins with stanza iii. of "The sands of time are sinking," p. 264, ii.
3. Saviour, shed Thy sweetest [richest] blessing. On behalf of Missioriaries. Published in Wilson's Service of Praise, 1865.
4. When we reach our peaceful dwelling. Heaven Anticipated. In her Immanuel's Land, &c.
--John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)
Cousin, A. R., p. 264, ii, Other hymns that have passed into use are:—

Of these No. 4 appeared in J. H. Wilson's Songs of Zion, 1862; Nos. 1 and 3 in J. H. Wilson's Service of Praise, 1865 ; and No. 2 in her own Immanuel’s Land, 1876. Mrs. Cousin died at Edinburgh Dec. 6, 1906, in her 83rd year. [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.]
