Hillhouse, Augustus Lucas, younger brother of James Hillhouse (commonly known as the poet Hillhouse), was born at New Haven, Connecticut, 1792, and educated at Yale, where he graduated in 1810. For some time he conducted a school in Paris; and died near that city, March 14, 1859. His hymn:— Trembling before Thine awful throne (Joy in the Forgiveness of Sins) was written cir. 1816, and published in the Christian Spectator, New Haven, April, 1822. It is a good hymn, and is in extensive use, but usually in an abbreviated form. The hymn, "Earth has a joy unknown to heaven," found in a few American hymnbooks, begins with st. iii. of this hymn.
