Description: Holyoke adapted the words of an unknown author; the earliest I have seen them published is John Wesley's Pocket Hymn Book, Edition of 1787, where it appears as Hymn 204. In this book, it appears in two stanzas of meter 88. 88. 77. -- Holyoke used the second stanza in his composition, shortening it to 88. 88. (L. M.).
