John Fawcett

John Fawcett (1739–1817) was born in Lidget Green, England. He apprenticed in the woolcomb-making industry in Bradford. He was converted after hearing George Whitefield, in an open place at Bradford. In 1764, he became a Baptist preacher at Wainsgate Baptist Church in Yorkshire, England. He was a hymnwriter and wrote the hymn “Blest Be the Tie that Binds.” The inspiration for that hymn happened when he was to leave Wainsgate for a different church in London but after packing all his belongings decided that he couldn’t leave. He was pastor at Wainsgate and Hebden Bridge for 53 years.
