First Line: Blest season, when our risen Lord


Blest season when our risen Lord. [Whitsuntide.] This hymn is No. 59 of J. H. Stewart's Selection of Psalms & Hymns for the Use of Percy Chapel, Lond., 1813, in 5 stanzas of 4 lines, where it is appointed for Monday in Whitsunweek. In common with all the hymns in the collection it is unsigned. In 1829 Josiah Pratt in included stanzas i., ii., and iv., with slight alterations, in his Psalms and Hymns, No. 66. This was repeated in some American collections, and is known to modem hymnals as “Blest day when our ascended Lord," as in the Songs for the Sanctuary, N. Y., 1865, No. 412. [William T. Brooke] -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
