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.
