Tune: SONG 13
Published in 24 hymnals
Lord, that I may learn of The. C. Wesley. [Humility desired.] Published in his Short Hymns, &c, 1762, vol. i., No. 1005, in 4 stanzas of 4 lines (Poetical Works, 1868-72, vol. ix. p. 392). On its introduction into the Wesleyan Hymn Book, 1780, No. 293, stanza ii., 1. 1, was changed from “Let me cast myself aside" to "Let me cast my reeds aside." This reading is repeated in the revised edition of 1875, and other hymn-books. A cento partly from this hymn and partly by J. Berridge appeared in Berridge's Sion's Songs, 1785, in 6 stanzas of 4 lines, as "Jesus, cast a look on me." Of this text stanzas i, iii. and iv. are altered from Wesley's hymn as above, and stanzas ii., v. and vi. are by Berridge. This cento is given without alteration in Lord Selborne's Book of Praise, 1862, and in whole or in part in numerous collections throughout English-speaking countries.
