West, Robert Athow, an editor and author, was born in England in 1802. In 1843 he went to America, and was the official reporter of the General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1844. He was also one of the committee appointed by that Conference to prepare a Standard edition of the Methodist Hymn Book. That collection appeared as Hymns for the Use of The Methodist Episcopal Church, in 1849. To it West contributed two hymns—(1) "Come, let us tune our loftiest song" (Praise of Jesus), and (2) "Now, Lord, fulfil Thy faithful word" (On behalf of Ministers).
