Jesus, call thou me
The translator of this German chorale by Adam Drese, Simeon Comenius Chitty (1831-1902) was a Moravian resident in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He made this translation in 1890 and since then the singing of this hymn has been a treasured part of the service of Christmas Vespers in the Central Moravian Church, Bethlehem, and other Moravian churches.
