Schutz, Johann Jacob

Schutz, Johann Jacob, a German hymnist, was born Sept. 7, 1640, at Frankfort-on-the-Main, where he also died, May 22, 1690. He was very intimate with Spener and Joachim Neander. The only hymn which he wrote was ascribed to Hugo Grotius. It is an ornament of German hymnology, the well known Sei Lob und Ehr' dem hochsten Gut (Engl. transl, in Lyra Germanica, 2, 196, "All praise and thanks to God most high") See Koch, Gesch. des deutschen Kirchenliedes, 4, 218 sq.
