Notes

Had I ten thousand gifts beside. [Completeness in Christ.] Appeared anonymously in R. Conyers's Collection, 1774, No. 254, in 2 stanzas of 6 lines. In this form it is in use in America. In the Baptist Hymn [& Tune] Book, Phila., 1871, No. 429, a third stanza has been added from "There is no path to heavenly bliss," stanza i. of No. 202, in Rippon's Baptist Selection, 1787. The usual modern form of the hymn in use in Great Britain is, "All other pleas we cast aside," as in Mercer's Church Psalter & Hymn Book, 1855, No. 111 (Oxford edition 1864, No. 45). This is repeated in Kennedy with the addition of a doxology. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907) ================= Had I ten thousand gifts beside, p. 476, ii. This is by Edward Godwin, a Calvinistic Methodist minister, published in his Hymns for Christian Societies, Part iii., Bristol, 1744, No. xii., entitled, "The Language of a Believer." [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.] --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, New Supplement (1907)
