Notes

Father, blessing every seed-time. This is an altered form of Dr. Monsell's "Bounteous blesser of the seed-time," p. 763, i. 41. In some collections it is appointed for "Rogation Days," as in The Hymnary, 1872, where it is wrongly given to Judith Madan. [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.] --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, New Supplement (1907)
