Klantendorfer, Paulus, was a minister among the Bohemian Brethren, and died in 1566. To their Kirchengeseng, 1566, he contributed one hymn, viz.:— Weil dieser Tag ist vergangen. Evening. 1566, as above, and thence in Wackernagel, iv. p. 349, in 6 stanzas of 4 lines. Translated as, "Because this day is at an end," as No. 291 in pt. i. of the Moravian Hymn Book, 1754. In 1789 a translation of stanza vi. of “Herr Jesu! meines Lebens Heil" (see Neumeister) was added. In later eds. (1886, No. 1179) it begins, "Another day is at an end." [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.] --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
