Henry Robert Tricket (sometimes called Harry Robert Tricket), born December 1839, Nottinghamshire, England; died April 1909, Keokuk, Iowa. A hymn writer, minister, and pastor/preacher/teacher from the American Restoration Movement. He spent the bulk of his time in ministry serving churches in the Disciples of Christ, one of the three branches of a movement founded by Thomas Campbell, Alexander Campbell, Barton W. Stone, and Walter Scott. The other branches include Churches of Christ and Independent Christian Churches. Most of his compositions, largely as a lyric and text writer, are found in the mid-20th century hymnals of Churches of Christ. His partnership in composing with Fred Fillmore and others through the Fillmore Brothers Publishing House allowed his hymns to be sung in primarily Restoration Movement Churches, especially prior to 1940.

Trickett emigrated to America at age 12. He went back to England as a young man to complete his education, and studied for a career in law, but soon decided for the minis-ry.

After returning to America, he bought a farm in Montebello Township, Hancock County, Illinois, which was home for the rest of his life. He became a Disciples of Christ minister, and held pastorates in Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri, and did much evangelistic work, particularly in the Midwest.
