Notes

For all Thy love and goodness, so bountiful and free. [Spring.] This hymn is based upon one written by Mrs. Frances Jane Douglas, née How, in 1848, and published in her April Verses. The original was rewritten by Mrs. Douglas's brother, Bishop W. W. How, for the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge Church Hymns, 1871. Its use has extended to several hymn-books notwithstanding its awkward metre and faulty rhythm. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
