Come, Divine Immanuel, come. C. Wesley. [Missions.] “Written at the Land's End,” and published in Hymns and Sacred Poems, 1749, vol. ii., No. 208, in 6 stanzas of 4 lines. (Poetical Works, 1868-72, vol. v. p. 133). In 1753, G. Whitefield included it in his Collection, No. 37, but it failed to gain popularity and is seldom found in modern collections. In the American Hymns and Songs of Praise, N. Y., 1874, it is given in an altered form.
