Jesu, now Thy new-made soldier. J. W. Hewett. [After Baptism.] Published in his Verses by a Country Curate, 1859, in 7 stanzas of 6 lines and entitled "A Hymn after Baptism." It is followed by a quotation from one of the author's sermons, and a dedication reads:—

"To Mr. and Mrs. T-----, my faithful and consistent Church parishioners, for the baptism of whose grandson this Hymn was composed, I inscribe the same with affectionate regard.—-The Country Curate. Whitsun Monday, 1859."

It was included in the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge Appendix, 1869, in the Hymnary, 1872; Thring's Collection, 1882; and also in several others, but usually somewhat abridged.

--John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
