First Line: See in the vineyard of the Lord
Author: Rebecca Wilkinson


See in the vineyard of the Lord. [The barren Fig-tree; or, Close of the Year.] This hymn is given in 6 st. of 4 1. at the close of Sermon xvii. of Short Sermons to Children, to which are added Short Hymns suited to the Subject. By a Lady [Rebecca Wilkinson]. London: Printed and Sold by the Philanthropic Society, St. George's Fields, n.d., [circa 1795]. It appeared in an improved form in the 1815 Appendix to T. Cotterill's Selection, No. 208, in 5 stanzas of 4 lines, and again in the 1819 edition of the same, No. 205. It is in several collections in Great Britain and America, and is sometimes said to be by "Cotterill, based upon Doddridge;" and again by "Cotterill, based upon Harbottle." It has, however, little or nothing in common with any hymn by Doddridge; nor with Harbottle's, "See how the fruitless figtree stands," which appeared in The Comprehensive Rippon, 1844, though probably written sometime before that date. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
