Reginald Heber (1783-1826) was born in Malpas, near Chester, England. In 1807, he was ordained and moved to the Shropshire village of Hodnet where he wrote many hymns. In 1815, Heber was appointed Bampton lecturer and in 1823, after several refusals, he became bishop of Calcutta. After a confirmation service at Trichinopoly on April 3, 1826, Heber took a cold bath and was found dead an hour later due to an apoplectic fit. Although several of his hymns appeared in the "Christian Observer" from 1811-1816, most of them were published in 1827 by his widow in the book "Hymns written and adapted to the weekly church service of the year".
