To Whom but Thee, O God of grace. W. J. Irons. [Seven Words from the Cross.] In his Hymns for Use in Church, 1866, Dr. Irons included seven hymns on the words on the Cross, and repeated them in his Psalms & Hymns, 1873-75, as follows:—
1. To whom but Thee, 0 God of grace. St. Luke xxiii. 34.
2. Thy presence, Lord, is heaven to those. St. Matt, xxvii. 46.
3. Jesu! Who for us didst bear. St. John xix. 28.
4. 0 Thou, Our God, Who hearest prayer. St. Luke xxiii. 43.
5. Son of God in glory reigning. St. John xix. 26.
6. It is not finished! Lord of grace (1866). Lord, is it finished? God of grace (1873). St. John xix. 30.
