Notes

Come, our indulgent Saviour, come. P. Doddridge. [Easter.] First published in J. Orton's ed. of Doddridge's Hymns, &c, 1755, No. 245, in 5 stanzas of 4 lines, and entitled “The Disciples' Joy at Christ's appearance to them after the Resurrection." It was also given in J. D. Humphreys's edition of the same, 1839. The form in which it is usually known is, "Come, condescending Saviour, come." This was given in the Bristol Collection of Ash & Evans, 1769, No. 211. It was repeated in Bickersteth's Christian Psalmody, 1833, and other collections, and was thus handed down to the modern hymnals. In Dr. Alexander's Augustine Hymn Book, 1849-65, stanzas i., ii., and iv. are given as, "Come, great and gracious Saviour, come"; and in the Baptist Hymnal, 1879, stanzas iv. and v. as, "Enter our hearts, Redeemer blest." --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
