August Crull (1845-1923) was a German-born U.S. Lutheran minister, professor of literature, and hymnodist.  His work on hymnals helped The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod (to use an anachronistic name) make the transition from the German language to English.  Anti-German hysteria and related vandalism in the United States during World War I sped up that transition.

O Lord, Our Father, Thanks to Thee:

O Jesus, Lamb of God, Thou Art:

The Lord Hath Helped Me Hitherto:

God, From All Eternity:
