Glory to Thee! O Lord, Who from this world of sin. Emma Toke. [Holy Innocents.] Written in 1851, and contributed anonymously to the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge Hymns for Public Worship, 1852, No. 119, in 6 stanzas of 4 lines. Its use in Great Britain is extensive, but in America somewhat limited. Usually the text is given in full and unaltered. Hymns Ancient & Modern is an exception in favour of 5 stanzas, and the American Protestant Episcopal Church Hymnal, 1872, of 4 stanzas. A doxology is sometimes added, as in the Salisbury Hymn Book, 1857; Chope's Hymnal, 1864. An altered version beginning, "All praise to Thee, O Lord," was given in the Hymnary, 1870-2, but it has failed to gain any position. A second altered form as, "We give Thee praise, O Lord," appeared in T. Darling's Hymns, various editions, but this also is a failure.
