The art of hymn translation was not as unsophisticated as it appears in the 1749 collection of Moravian hymns, nor was John Wesley the first to import German hymnody into England in the eighteenth century. In 1722, John Christian Jacobi. 25 psl. We are left with the question as to whether this German sympathy of Watts coincidentally resulted from a common faith, biblical sources, and a common purpose or manifested an actual influence.
