Songs and Hymns of the Earliest Greek Christian Poets

by Allen W. Chatfield


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.
