Notes

Holy Jesus, in Whose [Thy] Name. Bp. R. Mant. [Prayer in the Name of Jesus.] Appeared as one of his original hymns appended to his Ancient Hymns, &c, 1837, p. 100, in 5 stanzas of 6 lines, as a "Hymn commemorative of Prayer in, and to Christ" (edition 1871, p. 183). It is sometimes given as "Holy Jesus, in Thy Name." In the Cooke & Denton Hymnal, 1853, stanza ii. is omitted, several alterations are made, and a doxology by the editors is added. This form, with further changes, is repeated in Kennedy, 1863. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
