Komm Segen aus der Höh. [Before Work.] First published as No. 522 in the Sammlung Geist-und lieblicher Lieder, Leipzig und Görlitz, 1725, in 4 stanzas of 8 lines. In the Württemberg Gesang-Buch, 1842, No. 516, altered and omitting stanza ii. This is translated as:—
Attend, 0 lord, my daily toil. A good translation from the Württemberg Gesang-Buch contributed by Dr. R. P. Dunn to Sacred Lyrics from the German, Philadelphia, 1859, p. 155, and thence, as No. 393, in Boardman's Selections, Philadelphia, 1861.
