Father, behold with gracious eyes. C. Wesley. [Public Worship.] In the Hymns for those that Seek and those that Have Redemption, &c, 1747 (Poetical Works, 1868-1872, vol. iv. p. 270), this hymn, in 6 stanzas of 4 lines, is set forth for use "At the Hour of Retirement." A. M. Toplady, on including it in his Psalms & Hymns, 1776, No. 60, omitted stanza iii., added stanzas vi.,vii. from Wesley's "Father of Jesus Christ, my Lord" (in the same Hymns, &c, 1747), and appointed the same for "Public Worship." From this text, and not the original, No. 780 in the New Congregational Hymn Book, 1859-1874, is taken; Toplady's stanza iv., v. being omitted, and the rest somewhat altered.
