Batty, Christopher

Batty, Christopher a religious poet and preacher, was born in England early in the last century, and became a minister among a small sect of the Methodists called the Inghamites. He was an itinerating minister, and was often the companion of the Wesleys on their preaching tours, and shared with them the severe persecutions through which they were called to pass. He is best known as the author of the beautiful hymn, found in many collections, commencing with the line, "Sweet the moment, rich in blessing." See Belcher, Historical Sketches of Hymns, p. 81.
