Evelyn Renatus Hasse (June 11, 1855-May 28, 1915), born at Ockbrook Derby, England, United Kingdom, was a son of the Reverend Alexander Cossart Hasse (December 30, 1813-December 12, 1894) and Marie Elisabeth Gottiebe von Bulow (January 4, 1824-1861).  Thus Evelyn was a grandson of Christian Friedrich Hasse (1771-May 1, 1831), a German-English Moravian composer and educator.  In March 1884 the hymn writer and translator married Mary Emma Nelson (died in 1913).  He, a minister, helped to found a school (at Bristol) for foreign missions, became a bishop in 1904, began to serve as a provincial elder two years later, and worked on The Liturgy and Canticles (1914) of the Moravian Church in Great Britain and Ireland.  He died at Hampshire, England.
