Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.
Harry Plantinga

Notes

Liebster Jesu! du wirst kommen. [Advent.] Included in the Geistreiches Gesang-Buch, Halle, 1697, p. 257, in 10 stanzas of 5 lines. Repeated in Porst's Gesang-Buch, 1713 (ed. 1855, No. 561, as-cribed to Christoph Pfeiffer, who was only born in 1689). The translation in common use is:— Jesus, Saviour, once again. A good but rather free translation of stanzas i.-iii., v., vii., by Miss Dunn in her Hymns from the German, 1857, p. 47. Repeated in full in Dr. Pagenstecher's Collection, 1864; and, omitting stanza iii., in Curwen's Sabbath Hymn Book, 1859. Another translaton is:—"Precious Jesus! Thy returning," in the British Herald, Oct. 1866, p. 344, and Reid's Praise Book, 1872, No. 238. [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.] --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
