Notes

Father, hear the blood of Jesus. C. Wesley. [Holy Communion.] In Toplady's Psalms & Hymns, 1776, and others of the older collections, this hymn is composed of two hymns by C. Wesley, first published in his Hymns on the Lord's Supper, 1745; "Father, hear the blood of Jesus," in 2 stanzas of 8 lines, and "Dying Friend of Sinners, hear us," in 2 stanzas of 8 lines (Poetical Works, 1868-1872, vol. iii. pp. 225-226). In modern hymn-books the first of these hymns is given alone, as in the Laudes Domini, N. Y., 1884.
