HYMN
Psalmist (1825), and in Hymns for Private Devotion, Selected and Original (Hatchard, 1827). It has sometime's been erroneously attributed to Miss Grenfell.
ccclxxxi. ccclxxxii.—I am indebted for the communication of the volumes from which these two pieces are taken (Songs for the Suffering ; and The Family Hymnal; London : Hamilton, Adams, & Co.), to the kindness of the Author, the Rev. Thomas Davis, Incumbent of Roundhay, Yorkshire.
ccclxxxvii.—Five out of nine stanzas (from Watts' Hymn 59, of Book II). The stanzas omitted are the first, second, fifth, and sixth.
cccxc. —Five out of six stanzas. The omitted stanza is the fourth of Watts.
cccxcii.—This has been made up by putting together two stanzas taken from No. 23 (with some slight variation), and two others taken (without variation) from No. 28 of Mason's Songs of Praise. Lady Huntingdon added two stanzas more from the latter hymn, which are here omitted.
cccci.—Six out of eight stanzas. The stanzas omitted are Kelly's second and third.
ccccii.—This hymn (in five stanzas, of which the fourth is here omitted) appears in the second series of Sacred Poetry (Edin­burgh: Oliphant), first published in 1828. Dr. Bonar spoke of it to Mr. Sedgwick as one which he remembered as early as 1825. In the Chelsea Collection (Psalms and Hymns for Public Worship : Seeleys; second edition ; 1853) it bears the name of " Newton;" but the point is settled by its insertion in the author's Poems, 1852.
ccccin.—From Hymns and Anthems (Fox, Paternoster Row); a volume edited by Mr. William Johnson Fox ; to whom this hymn was given for publication by the authoress.
ccccix.—From Thoughts for thoughtful Hours (Nelson, Edinburgh, 1859).
