Come, magnify the Saviour's love. E. Osier. [Passiontide.] First published in Hall's Mitre, 1836, No. 95, and again in the author's Church and King, March, 1837 (p. 84), where it is given after a prose meditation on "Christ exalted through humiliation and suffering," being the theme for the Sunday next before Easter. From the Mitre it has passed into several collections. The Mitre text, which differs somewhat from Church and King, is generally adopted.
