And art Thou, gracious Master, gone? T. Kelly. [Reproach of the Cross.] First published in the first edition of his Hymns, &c, 1804, p. 26, in 5 stanzas of 6 lines, as the first of a series of hymns on the "Reproach of the Cross." It is also found in all subsequent editions of the same work. In 1812, Dr. Collyer gave it in his Selection; it was repeated by Montgomery in his Christian Psalmist, 1825; and by Bickersteth in the Christian Psalmody, 1833, thus coming into common use. The hymn, “Shall I to gain the world's applause," is a cento therefrom, composed of lines 1-4 of stanzas ii., iv. and iii., in the order named and slightly altered. This cento in L.M. appeared in Nettleton's (American) Village Hymns, 1824, No. 411, and from thence has passed into a few American collections.
