Listen to the intermediate piano arrangement of Who Is This So Weak and Helpless?
William Walsham How (December 13, 1823 – August 10, 1897) was the son of a Shrewsbury solicitor. He was ordained in 1846, and for upwards of thirty years was actively engaged in parish work at Whittington in Shropshire and Oswestry. In 1879 he became a bishop in London. He was particularly fond of children, and was commonly called the children’s bishop. He published several volumes of sermons and wrote a good deal of verse, including such well-known hymns as Who is this so weak and helpless; O Word of God Incarnate; and, O Jesus, thou art standing.
