John Cennick was born at Reading, Berkshire, in the year 1717. He became acquainted with Wesley and Whitefield, and preached in the Methodist connection. On the separation of Wesley and Whitefield he joined the latter. In 1745, he attached himself to the Moravians, and made a tour in Germany to fully acquaint himself with the Moravian doctrines. He afterwards ministered in Dublin, and in the north of Ireland. He died in London, in 1755, and was buried in the Moravian Cemetery, Chelsea. He was the author of many hymns, some of which are to be found in every collection. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872.… Go to person page >

Notes

A good High Priest is come. J. Cennick. [Priesthood of Christ.] First published in Pt. iii. of his Sacred Hymns for the Use of Religious Societies, London, 1744, No. cxxi. in 9 stanzas of 6 lines, pp. 196-198. In 1753 G. Whitefield included stanzas i. iv. v. vi. and ix. in his Collection of Hymns, No. xliv., and it was retained in subsequent editions. This arrangement, with slight alterations, was republished in Rippon's Selection 1787, No. 190, and later eds., and from thence has passed into other collections in Great Britain and America. In some works it is still further abbreviated. Original text in Lyra Britannica, 1867, p. 134.
