Schöner, Johann Gottfried a Lutheran minister, was born April 15, 1749, at Rügheim, near Schweinfurt, where his father was the pastor of the place. He studied at Leipsic and Erlangen, and was deacon of St. Lawrence's at Nuremberg. In 1799 he was taken sick, and died June 18, 1818. He was an excellent, pious man and pastor; and besides other hymns, he wrote the beautiful German hymn Hinmelan, nur himmelan, which has been translated by Mills, in his Horoe Germanicoe, No. 130, "Heavenward, still heavenward."
