Boehm, Anthony Wilhelm, a German writer, was born in 1673; and died in 1722. Very little is known of him. He translated and published Arndt's True Christianity in 1712, in which volume was a translation of St. Bernard's |Jesu, Dulcis Memoria,| which J. C. Jacobi altered and published in his Psalmodia Germanica, 1732. Jacobi's version was in turn altered by others, and among these alterations the one found in Madan's Psalms and Hymns, 1760, beginning, |Of Him who did salvation bring,| has long been a favorite with American Methodists. If any hymn in our Hymnal has to be traced back through a long genealogy, this one surely has.
