Summary

This collection contains English translations of some of the best-known German Pietist poems and hymns throughout the centuries. Characteristic of their Pietist authors, the hymns' contents are deeply personal and sometimes mystical. Fortunately, little beauty and meaning is lost in Bevan's fine translations. The works of Gerhard Tersteegen (1697- 1769) and Heinrich Seuse, also known as Henry Suso (1300-1366), among others, are included.
