Hymns and poems

The Puritan minister and poet Isaac Watts put all the Psalms in rhyme and wrote about 750 hymns;
Charles Wesley wrote at least 5.000 hymns;
Paul Gerhardt ca. 150;
Henri Abraham César Malan more than 1.000;
William Williams above 900;
Joseph Hart ca. 225;
John Newton ca. 300;
Fanny Crosby more than 8.000;
Nicolai Ludwig von Zinzendorf ca. 2.000;
Horatius Bonar ca. 600, etc.
