A.M. Toplady

      Augustus Montague Toplady was a minister in the Church of England and hymn-writer, living during the latter portion of the times of the Great Awakening. He was a major Calvinist opponent of John Wesley. Today, he is best remembered as the author of the hymn "Rock of Ages". Three of his other hymns - "A Debtor to Mercy Alone", "Deathless Principle, Arise", and "Object of My First Desire" - are still occasionally sung today, though all three are far less popular than "Rock of Ages".
