cccxxxv.—Thirteen out of sixteen stanzas, from Hymns and Sacred Poems, by Charles Wesley; vol. i. p. 40 (Farley, Bristol; second edition, 1755).
cccxxxvu.—The hymn from which these eight stanzas are taken, was first published in twenty-two stanzas in Spiritual Songs by J. and C. Wesley (vol. i. p. 224, fourth edition, 1743). Afterwards in the seventeenth edition (Pine, Bristol, 1773 ; p. 30) it was reduced to sixteen stanzas. In both it begins, " And wilt Thou yet be found."
cccxlix.—Miss Elliott's name is now (through the kindness of her brother, the Rev. H. V. Elliott, in obtaining for me her per­mission) first made public, as the authoress of this hymn. Through some accidental error it is ascribed in the Rev. H. V. Elliott's Collection to Wesley; and the same mistake has been transferred to Ryle's Spiritual Songs, Bourchier's Solace in Sickness and Sorrow, and probably other books.
cccli.—Six out of seven stanzas (Hymns and Sacred Poems, vol. ii. p. 146; second edition, 1743). Wesley's last stanza is omitted; and a change of arrangement, which the Wesleys themselves sanctioned in the Hymn Book for Methodists, is adopted, by placing as last of the six the stanza which is second in the original text.
ccclvi.—Five out of six stanzas. Browne's last is omitted.
ccclviii.—Five out of eight stanzas. Those omitted are Mr. Massie's third, fourth, and seventh. (From Martin Luther's Spiritual Songs ; translated by R. Massie, Esq. of Eccleston; Hatchard, 1854.)
ccclxiii.—From the original, as printed, with music, by the late Baron Bunsen, and communicated to me by a friend.
ccclxiv.—In most of the editions of Kelly's hymns (including that of 1836), this is a hymn of ten stanzas ; of which the fifth, sixth, seventh, and tenth, are here omitted. In the edition of 1812, it was reduced by the author himself to six stanzas ; being (except the last), the same with the present text. The last stanza of that edition was unequal to the rest; and was omitted by the author in all the later editions.
ccclxviii.—From Nugce Sacrce,; or, Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs. (Hatchard, 1825).
ccclxx.—The seven last of twenty stanzas ; from Erskine's Gospel Sonnets (twentieth edition; Berwick : Phorson ; 1788: page 272).
ccclxxv.—This is No. 47 in Hymns by R. C. Chapman (London: John R. Bateman, 1, Ivy Lane). This edition, which is with­out date, was published in 1852. The same hymn, in a slightly different form, had appeared in the earlier edition of the Author's hymns, published la 1837 (JohnF. Shaw, Southamp­ton Row, Russell Square).
ccclxxvi.—(From Lyte's Poems, chiefly Religious; page 41). This hymn had been in circulation several years before the pub­lication of that volume, and will be found in the Christian
