Wake the song, O Zion's daughter. [Palm Sunday.] This hymn appeared in E. W. Eddis's Irvingite Hymns for the Use of the Churches, in 1864, and is therein accredited to "J. E. L.," i.e. Jane E. Leeson. It is however a curious cento and is thus composed:—
St. i. Original, by Miss Leeson, based on Dr. Neale's translation of "Gloria, laus, et honor," in theHymnal Noted.
St. ii. Composed of stanzas iv. v. of the same tr. by Dr. Neale, with two or three verbal alterations.
St. iii. 1l. 1-4. Altered from a doxology in the Countess of Huntingdon's Collection, 1780, No. 294; 1l. 5, 6 from Dr. Neale, as above; and ll. 7-9 added by Miss Leeson.
This cento is of more than usual excellence, and might be used with advantage.
