Henry L. Lettermann (1932–96) served as professor of English at Concordia Teachers College, River Forest, Illinois, from 1959 to 1988, where his talent for poetry became readily apparent. From 1979 to 1987, he served as a member and secretary of the Hymn Text and Music Committee, which produced Lutheran Worship in 1982. His original texts, translations, and observations about the process of preparing this new hymnal provide fascinating insights.
