It was taken by Mr. Trowbridge (a Missionary of the American Board) to Constantinople, and there translated into two or three languages. Its first publication in English was in the Oberlin Manual of Praise, 1880, No. 270. In this form, stanzas iii. and iv. are omitted. Dr. Barrows has also written several other hymns and versions of Psalms; but these have not come into common use.
