Joseph H. Manwaring
George Manwaring (March 19, 1854 – July 7, 1889) was a hymnwriter of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Some of his works have become favorite LDS hymns and are found in the 1985 LDS Church hymnal.
George Manwaring was born in England to Henry Manwaring and Sarah Barber. The family converted to the LDS Church, and in 1871, as was the custom at the time, made their way to the United States and to Utah Territory. They settled first in Salt Lake City, then permanently in Springville.
