November 13. "Delight Thyself in the Lord" (Ps. xxxvii. 4).

Biographical Sketch.
Paul Gerhardt was born in Graefenhainichen in Electoral Saxony, where his father, Christian Gerhardt, was Burgomaster. There is some doubt as to the precise year of his birth, owing to the destruction of the church books when the place was burnt by the Swedes on the 16th of April, 1637.

The probability is in favour of the former date, for General Superintendent Goltlob Stolze, of Luebben,[1] says that he died,
