Ed Krentz suggested making a list of NT scholars who wrote hymns. Here
are two that I recalled immediately; I will look for more.

1. Edwin Hatch (1835-1889): "Breathe on Me, Breath of God" (1878).

2. Henry Alford (1810-1871): "Come, Ye Thankful People, Come" (1844);
"Ten Thousand Times Ten Thousand" (1867).

I hope someone will keep a master list; this would make a great handout in
an introductory NT seminary class.
