We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Notes

First published in Rippon, Selection, 1787, Hymn 457.

Julian's numbering and attribution are incorrect. Rippon lists the author before the hymn throughout his book. Also, Julian says nos. 2 and 11 are by Stennett; Stennett wrote no. 3, Beddome no. 2; and Stennett wrote no. 12, not 11. Rippon numbers these one-stanza hymns on baptism as Hymns 455–467:
1. Hymn 455 – Whate'er to thee, our Lord, belongs – unattributed, possibly by Rippon
2. Hymn 456 – Hosanna to the church's head – Beddome
3. Hymn 457 – Behold the grave where Jesus lay – Stennett
4. Hymn 458 – Come, ye redeemed of the Lord – Beddome
5. Hymn 459 – We to this place are come to show – Beddome
6. Hymn 460 – Eternal Spirit, heavenly Dove – Beddome
7. Hymn 461 – All ye that love Immanuel's name – unattributed, possibly by Rippon
8. Hymn 462 – Ye, who your native vileness mourn – H. F.
9. Hymn 463 – Jesus, my Savior and my all – H. F.
10. Hymn 464 – Amazing grace! and shall I still – H. F.
11. Hymn 465 – Apostles trod this holy ground – H.
12. Hymn 466 – With lowly minds and lofty songs – Stennett
13. Hymn 467 – To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, We humbly dedicate – G.
