On the dewy breath of even. Julia Ann Elliott, née Marshall. [Evening.] First published in her husband's Psalms & Hymns, 1835, anonymously, and subsequently with the signature " I. A. E." in the Index. In modern collections it is usually found, as in the Leeds Hymn Book, 1853, and the Baptist Psalms & Hymns, 1858, where stanzas i.-iii. are unaltered from Mrs. Elliott, stanza v. from the same altered, and stanza iv. by another hand. In some hymn-books this hymn is attributed to Miss Charlotte Elliott, but in error.
