The hour of my departure's come. J. Logan. [Death anticipated.] This is hymn No. 5, in 6 stanzas of 4 lines, of the "Hymns" appended to the Scottish Translations and Paraphrases, 1781. We have most reluctantly assigned this sweetly plaintive hymn to J. Logan rather than to M. Bruce. The hymn is in several modern hymn-books in Great Britain and America.
