Huntington, Frederic Dan, D.D., was born at Hadley, Massachusetts, in 1819, and graduated at Amherst College, 1839, and Cambridge Divinity School, 1842. From 1842 to 1855 he was an Unitarian Minister in Boston; and from 1855 Professor of Christian Morals, and University Preacher, at Harvard. In 1859 he received Episcopal Ordination. He was for some time a Rector in Boston; and in 1869 he was consecrated Bishop of Central New York. With Dr. F. D. Hedge he edited the Unitarian Hymns for the Church of Christ, Boston, 1853. This collection contains three of his hymns:—
1. 0 Love Divine, lay on me burdens if Thou wilt. Supplication.
2. 0 Thou, in Whose Eternal Name. Ordination.
3. 0 Thou that once on Horeb stood. God in Nature. The cento, "Father, Whose heavenly kingdom lies," in the Hymns of the Spirit, Boston, 1864, is from No. 2. Dr. Huntington has also edited, with Dr. Hedge, Elim: Hymns of Holy Refreshment, a collection of Sacred Poetry. From this work his hymn for Burial, "So heaven is gathering one by one," is taken. [Rev. F. M. Bird, M.A.]
