Subject: RE: Help: O Come All Ye Faithful
The Hither ye Faithful translation is definately older. I found it in Lloyd's Primitive Hymns as well as the Sacred Harp. Lloyd's dates from the 1830's. I think it has 3 verses & will compare it to the Christmas Harp when I get a chance. I do remember that no translator is listed in either SH or Lloyd's.
