John Gambold was a English clergyman, first with the Church of England, then a bishop with the United Brethren (Moravians). "About 26 translations and 18 original hymns in the Moravian Hymn Books are assigned to him. One or two of his hymns, which were published by the Wesleys, have been claimed for them, but the evidence is in favor of Gambold" (Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology).
