Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Author: Paulus Klantendorfer

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 >
