Lee, Richard. Said to have been "a laborious mechanic," and "a political and religious fanatic," contributed several hymns to the Evangelical Magazine, 1793, 1794, which were signed "Ebenezer," and dated from "Leicester Fields, London." In 1794 he published Flowers from Sharon. From this work the hymns, "When I view my Saviour bleeding" (Good Friday), and "See the Captain of Salvation" (Ascension), are taken.
