The Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge and other religious societies had his cordial sympathy, and received his active support. His publications include several small volumes in prose, and the following:— (1) Church Psalmody; Hints for the improvement of a Collection of Hymns published by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1853; (2) A Collection of Hymns for Public Worship. Lutterworth, 1838. This contains 300 hymns, and is known as his Lutterworth Collection; (3) Psalms and Hymns for Public Worship, selected for some of the Churches of Marylebone. London, 1851. This collection of 300 hymns and psalm versions is known as his Marylebone Collection. The Preface is signed by "Charles Baring," "Thomas Garnier," and "John Hampden Gurney," but the work was practically done by Gurney. To the Lutterworth Collection 1838, he contributed :— 1. Earth to earth, and dust to dust. Burial. 2. Great King of nations, hear our prayer. Fast Day. 3. Lord, as to Thy dear Cross we flee. Lent. 4. Lord, at Thy word the constant sun. Harvest. 5.

Thou Who of old didst raise. Ascension. 10. Through centuries of sin and woe. For Peace. 11. We praise Thee, everlasting God. Te Deum. These hymns were all signed "J. H. G.," and Nos. 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9 and 11, were repeated in the Marylebone Collection, 1851; and to these were added:— 12. Fair waved the golden corn. Child's Hymn. 13. How vast the debt we owe. Offertory. 14. Lord of the Harvest, Thee we hail. Harvest. This is No. 4 above rewritten. 15. Lord, we lift our eyes above. Love of Christ. In addition to these we are specially indebted to Gurney for, "We saw Thee not when Thou didst come" (q.v.), and "Yes, God is good," &c. (q.v.). Several of the above-named hymns are in extensive use in Great Britain and America. The most popular are annotated under their respective first lines. -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)

Henriette Louise von Hayn

1724 - 1782 Person Name: Henriette Louise von Hayn Meter: Author of "Seeing I Am Jesus' Lamb" Hayn, Henrietta Luise von, daughter of Georg Heinrich von Hayn, master of the hounds to the Duke of Nassau, was born at Idstein, Nassau, May 22, 1724. In 1746 she was formally received into the Moravian community at Herrnhaag. There, and, after the dissolution of this community, at Grosshennersdorf, and, after 1751 at Herrnhut, she was engaged as teacher in the Girls' School; and after 1766 in caring for the invalid sisters of the community. She died at Herrnhut, Aug. 27, 1782. (Koch, vi. 443-447; Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie, xi. 1.58, &c.) She was a gifted hymnwriter. A fervent love to Christ pervades her produc¬tions; and they are remarkably free from the unpleasant sentimentalism and that dwelling on the physical details of our Lord's Passion which mars so many of the Moravian hymns of that period. Over 40 hymns or portions of hymns by her are included in the Brüder Gesang-Buch of 1778. Only one has come into English use outside the Moravian hymnbooks, viz.:— Weil ich Jesu Schaflein bin. Children. This beautiful hymn for children, regarded as Lambs of the Good Shepherd, first appeared in the Brüder Gesang-Buch, 1778, No. 1179, in 3 st. of 6 1. It has been included in many recent German collections, as the Berlin Geistliche Lieder, ed. 1863, No. 120. Translated as: — 1. Jesus makes my heart rejoice, in full, by F. W. Foster and J. Miller, as No. 576 in the Moravian Hymn Book, 1789 (1886, No. 1006). Included, from the edition of 1826, in Dr. Pagenstecher's Collection, 1864, and others. 2. Seeing I am Jesus' lamb, a good and full translation by Miss Winkworth in her Lyra Germanica, 2nd Ser., 1858, p. 90. Repeated in the People's Hymnal 1867, Book of Praise for Children, 1881, and in America in the Pennsylvania Lutheran Church Book, 1868, &c. 3. I am Jesus' little lamb, a good and full translation by Dr. W. F. Stevenson for his Hymns for Church & Home, 1873, c. 58, dated 1871. Repeated in Allon's Children's Worship, 1878, the Methodist Sunday School Hymnbook, 1883, and others. Another translation is : "Since I'm Jesus' sheep I am," by R. Massie, in the Day of Rest, 1880, p. 622. [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.] -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
