Author: Chatfield, Allen W. (1808-1896)
A skilled poet and one of the most talented Greek scholars of his time, Chatfield took it
upon himself to translate some of Christianity’s earliest hymns. His translations exhibited
a rare elegance that other translators may have lost, and they still appear in modern
hymnals. “Lord Jesus, Think on Me” is perhaps the most well-known, although several
others at least equal it in beauty.
