Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Notes

See the [good] kind Shepherd, Jesus, stand. [The Good Shepherd.] This hymn is found in [Rebecca Wilkinson's] Short Sermons to Children, To which are added Short Hymns suited to the Subject [circa 1795]; later edition published at Bath 1798, No. 1, in 4 stanzas of 4 lines. In J. Benson's Hymns for Children, selected chiefly from the publications of the Rev. John and Charles Wesley and Dr. Watts, &c, 1814, it was given anonymously as No. 15. From that collection it has passed into a large number of hymn-books for children. In the Short Sermons there is nothing to show by whom the hymn was composed. It is sometimes given as “See the good Shepherd, Jesus, stands." [William T. Brooke]

--John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
