Willem (Wilhelmus) Barnard was born in Rotterdam on August 15, 1920. Barnard was a Dutch protestant (Netherlands Reformed) theologian, pastor, writer and poet. He published about twenty volumes of poetry under the pseudonym Guillaume van der Graft. After graduating from the Grammar School he studied Dutch Language and Literature at Leiden. Later he studied theology and was a Netherlands Reformed minister in Hardenberg and Nijmegen. In 1954 he became study-secretary of the Prof. Dr. G. van der Leeuw-foundation, which meant a lot for the renewal of liturgy and church-hymns. In the sixties he was minister in Roosendaal, but his unstable health forced him to apply for an early retirement in 1974. He died in Utrecht on November 21, 2010.
