O Lord, incline Thy gracious ear. C. Wesley. [Psalms v.] Published in the Wesley Psalms & Hymns, 1743, in 7 stanzas of 8 lines (Poetical Works, 1868-1872, vol. viii. p. 9.) From this paraphrase three centos are in common use:—
1. 0 Lord, incline Thy gracious ear. In Kennedy, 1863, No. 377.
2. Behold us, Lord, with humble fear. Composed of stanzas iv., v., and vii. rewritten and greatly altered, in A Selection of Hymns designed as a Supplement to the Psalms & Hymns of the Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, 1861.
3. On Thee, 0 God of purity. This, which begins with stanza ii., was given in the revised edition of the Wesleyan Hymn Book, 1875. In Common Praise, 1879, this is again changed to "On Thee, Thou God of purity."
