Schröder, Johann Heinrich a Lutheran minister of Germany, was born in 1666 at Hallerspringe, in the principality of Calenberg, in Hanover. He was a pupil of the celebrated philanthropist A. H. Francke, and studied under him at Leipsic. In 1696 he became pastor at Merseburg, near Magdeburg. He wrote a few hymns which are still in use in the German Church, and died June 30, 1699.

Cox, "One thing needful, then, Lord Jesus," in Hymns from the German, p. 216): — Jesu, hilf siegen, du Fürst des Lebens (transl. by Mills, "Jesus, help conquer! thou Prince everliving," in Horoe Germanicoe, p. 126).
