HYMN SPOTLIGHT

God Is Love, His Mercy Brightens (1825)

Sir John Browning, 1792-1872

The author of this hymn was a man of many interests and talents. His long and distinguished career in public service to the British crown included two terms as a member of Parliament, as consul to Canton, and as governor of Hong Kong. Additionally he translated volumes of Russian, Serbian and Polish poetry into English – many of which for the first time. He was a Unitarian who also wrote two volumes of original hymns.
