Christ, We Do All Adore Thee

Full Text

Christ, we do all adore Thee,
and we do praise Thee forever.
Christ, we do all adore Thee,
and we do praise Thee forever.
For on the holy cross
Thou hast the world from sin redeemed.
Christ, we do all adore Thee,
and we do praise Thee forever.
Christ, we do all adore Thee.

Theodore Baker (b. New York, NY, 1851; d. Dresden, Germany, 1934). Baker is well known as the compiler of Baker's Biographical Dictionary of Musicians (first ed. 1900), the first major music reference work that included American composers. Baker studied music in Leipzig, Germany, and wrote a dissertation on the music of the Seneca people of New York State–one of the first studies of the music of American Indians. From 1892 until his retirement in 1926, Baker was a literary editor and translator for G. Schirmer, Inc., in New York City. In 1926, he returned to Germany.
