Sachse, Christian Friedrich Heinrich, Dd

Sachse, Christian Friedrich Heinrich, D.D., a German Protestant theologian, was born July 2, 1785, at Eisenberg, in Saxe-Altenburg. Having finished his studies at Jena, he was in 1812 appointed deacon in Meuselwitz, near Altenburg. In 1823 he was made court preacher at Altenburg, in 1831 member of consistory, and in 1841 his alma mater honored him with the theological doctorate. In February, 1860, he was obliged, through bodily infirmities, to retire from his important position, and on October 9 he was called to his home. Sachse wrote several very fine hymns, two of which are also translated into English — Wohlauf! wohlan! zum letzten Gang, sung at his own funeral (in Hymns from the Land of Luther [p. 108], "Come forth! come on with solemn song!"), and Lebwohl, die Erde wartet dein (ibid. p. 154, "Beloved and honored, fare thee well!"). See Koch, Gesch. des deutschen Kirchenliedes, 7, 22, 76; Knapp, Evangel. Liederschatz, p. 1342, s.v. (B.P.)
