Away with our fears, Our troubles and tears. C. Wesley. [Whitsuntide.] This is No. 32 of his “Hymns for Whitsunday,” which were published at Bristol in 1746 as Hymns of Petition and Thanksgiving for the Promise of the Father. It is in 5 stanzas of 8 lines. In 1776 four stanzas, somewhat altered, were given in A. M. Toplady's Psalms and Hymns, No. 236, and thus came into common use. It did not form a part of the Wesleyan Hymn Book until the revised edition of 1875. Original text in Poetical Works, 1868-72, vol. iv. p. 203.
