Simpson, William John Sparrow, M.A., was educated at Trin. College, Camb., B.A. 1882, M.A. 1886. Ordained in 1882, he held various appointments until 1904, when he became Chaplain to St. Mary's Hospital, Great Ilford. He has published several works, including a Memoir of Dr. W. S. Simpson, 1899. He contributed "All for Jesus—all for Jesus" (All for Jesus), and "Jesus, the Crucified, prays for me" (Passiontide), to C. W. A. Brooke's Additional Hymns, 1901).

Stainer's cantata The Crucifixion, 1887, the book of words of which was compiled by Mr. Simpson. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, New Supplement (1907)  Go to person page >
