The 2004 Hymn Author booklet shows that Ed Cooney
as the Author of Hymn Nos. 179, 182, 183, and 184
with the notation:
"The author was an independent evangelist."
Not wanting to claim any association with Ed Cooney, his name
is typed in lower case letters as though the author was an outsider.
(Hymns by Workers Ex-workers and Friends are shown in all capital letters).
