Allendorf, Johann Ludwig Conrad

Allendorf, Johann Ludwig Conrad, a Lutheran theologian of Germany, was born Feb. 9,1693, at Johbach, near Marburg. He studied at Halle; was appointed court chaplain at Kothen in 1724; and at the time of his death was school-inspector and pastor of St. Ulrich's, in Halle, where he died, June 6,1773. He was a fertile writer of hymns, of which he composed one hundred and forty, full of religious sentiment. Some of these were translated into English, as Die Seele ruht in Jesu Armen ("Now rests the soul in Jesus' arms," in Lyra Germ. 1, 250): — Das Briinnlein quillt, das Lebenswasser ("The fountain flows! its waters all are needing," in Mill, Horce Germanicce, No. 21). See Koch, Gesch. d. deutschen Kirchenliedes, 4, 416, 434 sq., 441 sq. (B. P.)
