Robinson, George, is an English hymn writer
of whom little is known. In 1842 the
Rev. J. Leifchild published in London a
volume of Original Hymns by various authors.
In a list of contributors "G. Robinson"
is credited with the authorship of five
hymns, among them the hymn accredited to
him in this book. Nothing more seems to
be known of this author. It is to be hoped
that other information may be obtained
that may appear in later editions of this
volume. Suffice it in the meantime that
we know two most important facts about
him, gathered from this short hymn--viz.,
that his views of the atonement are evangelical
and sound, and his Christian catholicity
quite in accord with the growing spirit
of fraternity and brotherhood that characterizes
the best type of modern Christianity.
