Afflicted soul, to Jesus dear. J. Fawcett. [Support in Affliction.] First published in his Hymns adapted to the circumstances of Public and Private Devotions, 1782, No. 13, in 7 stanzas of 4 lines. In its original form it is rarely found in common use. An altered and abbreviated form, beginning "Afflicted Saint, to Christ draw near," was given by Rippon in his Baptist Selections, 1787, in 6 stanzas, and later editions. This was repeated by Cotterill in his Selections, 1810, No. 50, and again in the 8th edition 1819, No. 165, in 5 stanzas, representing st. i., iii., v., vi. and vii. of the original. This is the arrangement which has come into common use in Great Britain and America, sometimes as Afflicted Saint, to God,” &c. Orig. text in Lyra Brittanica 1867, p. 225.
