Comments
Gabriel changed the tune, added one stanza and credited the whole text to Martin Luther.

The third stanza ("Be near me, Lord Jesus...") is commonly attributed to Dr. John MacFarland; however, his contribution is highly questionable, as his name started to be linked to the song in 1904, 12 years after its first appearance.
