All hail, Incarnate God. Elizabeth Scott. [Glory of Christ's Kingdom.] Contributed, under the signature of “S", to Ash and Evans's Baptist Collection of Hymns, 1769, No. 358, in 4 stanzas of 6 lines, and headed “The increasing Glory and Perpetuity of the Messiah's Kingdom." In 1787, on its republication in Rippon's Baptist Selection No. 430, to the st. ii. which reads :—
"To Thee the hoary head
Its silver honors pays;
To Thee the blooming youth
Devotes his brightest days;
And every age their tribute bring
And bow to Thee, all-conquering King"—
this note was added :—
"Composed on seeing an aged saint and a youth taken into church communion together."
In modern collections it is almost entirely confined to those of the Baptists and Congregationalists. It was introduced into the American hymnals through Staughton's edition of Rippon, 1813. Orig. text in Baptist Psalms and Hymns, 1858, No. 199. [William T. Brooke]
