Johann Heinrich Schröder (Hymn-Writer)

Born: October 4, 1667 – Hallerspringe (near Hannover), Lower Saxony, Germany.
Died: June 30, 1699 - Meseberg, Germany

Johann Heinrich Schröder was was educated at the University of Leipzig, where he was deeply stirred by the lectures of A.H. Francke.

In 1696 he was called to the pastorate of Meseberg, and entered upon his duties there on his 29th birthday.

Schröder is best known through the four hymns which were included in Geistreiches Gesangbuch, Halle, 1697, and in Freylinghausen’s Gesangbuch of 1704. Two of his hymns were made use of by Landstad. His hymn, Jesu, giv Seier (Landst. 471), was branded as chiliastic by the theological faculty of Wittenberg, on account of the last two stanzas, and these were revised in subsequent editions.
