George Macdonald

1824 - 1905 Person Name: George MacDonald, 1824-1905 Meter: Author of "He who by a mother’s love" in Together in Song Macdonald, George, LL.D., was born at Huntly, Aberdeenshire, Dec. 10, 1824, and educated at King's College, Aberdeen, where he graduated M.A., and from which he afterwards received the honorary degree of LL.D. For a brief time he studied for the Congregational ministry at Highbury College, London, and then became the Minister of the Congregational Church at Arundel, Sussex (1850-53). He afterwards preached for a short time to a small company at Manchester and Bolton. Relinquishing the ministry, he became Lecturer on English Literature at King's College, London, and ultimately gave himself up entirely to literary work. Dr. Macdonald has acquired a great reputation by means of his works of fiction, most of which were originally contributed to magazines, and the most notable of which are David Elginbrod; Robert Falconer; Alec Forbes of Howglen; and Annals of a Quiet Neighbourhood. He was some time Editor of Good Words for the Young, and wrote England's Antiphon for Macmillan's Sunday Library. His poetical works are:— (1) Within and Without, 1855; (2) The Disciple, and Other Poems, 1860; (3) The Diary of an Old Soul (printed for private circulation), 1867"; (4) Exotics, a volume of translations from the German (most of which first appeared in the Sunday Magazine), 1876; and (5) A Threefold Cord, 1883, part of which previously appeared in his Works of Fancy and Imagination, 10 vols., 1871. Most of his original hymns were contributed to Hymns and Sacred Songs for Sunday Schools and Social Worship, &c, published by Fletcher and Tubbs, Manchester, in 1855 (2nd. edition, 1856), and of which his brother, and the Rev. G. B. Bubier were the editors. The original hymns, which are signed "G. Macdonald," in this collection are:— 1. A quiet heart, submissive, meek. The Meek inherit the Earth. 2. Daylight fades away. Second Advent. 3. Father, I well may praise Thy name. Sunday Morning. 4. Father, these souls of ours have been. Blessed are the Pure in Heart. 5. If we were longing for the food. Blessed are they that Hunger and Thirst after Righteousness. 6. It was an awful hour that gave. Blessed are the Merciful. 7. Let Thy own voice, 0 Father, say. Blessed are they that mourn. 8. 0 Son of Man, Thy Name by choice. Blessed are the Meek. 9. Our Father, hear our longing prayer. Blessed are the Poor in Spirit. Some of these hymns were afterwards revised by their author. The next two are from The Disciple, and Other Poems, 1860 :— 10. O God, Whose daylight leadeth down. Evening. 11. O Lord [God] of life, Thy quickening voice. Morning. Dr. Macdonald's hymns are rich in ideas, but are touched with a mysticism which renders them a little difficult of apprehension. They are however of great value in setting forth truths rarely expressed in hymns, and are likely to grow in favour. [Rev. W. Garrett Horder] -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907) =======================
