Fitz, Asa, p. 1563, ii. In Asa Fitz's American School Hymn Book, 1854 (ed. 1857, No. 75), a hymn is given without name of author, beginning "Ten thousand different flowers." This is repeated in Thring's Collection, 1882, under Fitz's name, with a new stanza by Preb. Thring as st. i., beginning "Great Giver of all good." The text of 1854 is not, however, by Fitz, but is sts. ii.-vi. of Ann Gilbert's "Spared to another Spring "; see p. 1116, ii. 18. [Rev. James Mearns,, M.A.]
